AADEN - Hinter diesem Namen verbirgt sich der Liedermacher Patrick Beiling. Mit
seinem selbstgebastelten Telefon, einem „Uralt-Walkmann“, der seinen vielbeschäftigten
Schlagzeuger ersetzt und seiner, als Geburtstagsgeschenk getarnten, Mandoline ist er seit
2012 auf Tour. Immer mit einer neuen Geschichte im Angebot, warum er heute Solo
unterwegs ist und nicht mit seiner achtköpfigen Band auftritt.

Track Name: Birds Are Us

I am a pigeon
A sign of peace in times of war
Can you see it from afar

I am a seagull
A ray of hope at sea
A sign that we urgently need

Now start at one and count to ten
Close your eyes and then
Tell me what you see – is it that what you want to be

I am thievish magpie
Taking things which are not mine – you know
'Cause I always get what I deserve anyhow

I am an owl
And all I know is that I don't know
Anything you believe to know

I am everything that I wanted to be
A swan, a finch - you'll see
All I ever can imagine – in my dreams I'm able to slip in

But now you have to count from ten backwards to three
Open your eyes again and tell me what you see
Is it that what you want to be
Is it that what you want to be
Are you really who you want to be
Track Name: You Are Home

You are searching for warmth, love and peace, but you don't know how to share
and if there is someone who really wants to grow, you say: “well, I don't care”

You are searching for certainty, where you can settle down, a place called home
but you are afraid to put your trust in someone else, so you better stay alone

You're always searching for this and that
and slowly getting mad
'cause you never reach/ get/ know/ always miss
what you are aiming at
and if you finally get
what you are aching for

You have to admit
it's always more and more

You have to realize
it isn't what you're looking for

You are searching for your life, but you do not have a clue who you really are
it's like watching yourself on the TV screen – lean back and wonder from afar

In search of something you are longing for you cannot name
you look like a desperate beast, trapped but impossible to tame
stray around aimlessly not as one but on your own
you should realize that you already have a home – it is you – so make yourself at home
Track Name: Believe

As far as our bodies
can carry our souls
we've promised to help
us with reaching our goals

It's no question of time
it's just like that
that your love is mine

As certain as sunrise
our passion is safe
in winter so quiet
but in springtime so brave

It doesn't matter how it pours
it will always be like that
that my love is yours

I'm not afraid to leave
'cause there's something I receive
wherever I may roam
I surely know that you are my home

I'm not afraid to let go
'cause yes I do, yeah I know
wherever you may roam
I surely know that I am your home

And even if sometimes this harmony which we try to keep up so hardly ends in foolish fights - where no one wants to give in
we both are old enough to know that these momentary feelings that we show will end and fade away – they aren't real
so come on and let's forget, let's disarm but still keep aiming at...
do we know where we want to go

I'm not afraid to let go
'cause yes I do, yeah I know
wherever you may roam
I surely know that I am your home

I'm not afraid to go
wherever I do not know
I always feel that I'm not alone
and coming back to you feels like coming home
Track Name: I Know

Hundred miles I've walked
and nearly died of thirst
a thousand times we've talked
until I wanted to burst
five million men I've fought
but I'm my biggest rival
a billion thoughts I've thought
how to deal with your denial

So what can I do
my aim is you

Hundred miles I've walked
a thousand times I've talked
five million men I've fought
a billion thoughts I've thought
to realize the more I put the pressure on
the more my goals seem to move beyond...

So what can I do
my aim is you
what can I do
just to be with you

It's like trying to get blood from a stone
like trying to possess someone you cannot own
that's what you already knew and what I should have known
that is why I / you always preferred to be alone

It's ok
I hope we'll meet some other day
It's ok
I know we'll meet some day
Track Name: Done With You

Do release me from the chain that holds me so tight
imprisoned by conditions that you think are right
don't try to follow me or try to catch me again
b-b-bent over, spineless – do you really need such a man

Anyway I'm done
I will not remain with you
this is just the end

At our first steps, we had no idea what to expect
but after some time, our trust was murdered by neglect
time after time with all our fights, we'd become annoyed
now our love has left us empty, left us void.

That's the reason why
I will not remain with you
'cause this is just the end
Track Name: Confidence

There are times when we lose our creed
we hold the strings, but we don't lead
like puppets on a darkened stage
we feel like actors, are we engaged

Sometimes a flap
of a single dove
can change the bad
turn it into love

I know that courage will be mine
'cause I write my story line by line
I'll give my best to face this test
I'll find a way, day by day

There'll be a time we have to confess
that we will reap what we sow, not more not less
like children, we enjoy our game
and as grown-ups, we do the same

But not at all ashamed
are we innocent
do we have a choice
are we strong enough

Sometimes a flap
of a single dove
can change the world
turn all into love
Track Name: Sparkling Lights

If those golden days
lose their first place
in the seasonal race

And if those feelings rise
not only once and not twice
but all our life

And if the time
comes in which we both combine
and promise ourselves
what's mine is also thine

If we want to share
and therefore take care
that this place we call home
is a little more fair

And if we feed
'cause of personal creed
and feeling complete
opposing greed

And if we don't know
where we should go
feeling your heart
it surely will show

All those lights are guiding us on our way home
do you really want to stay alone
there's no need to be on your own
there is so much more of love to be shown
