ONE NIGHT STOP met her that night at a bar called 'the sin' breathtaking eyes and breathtaking skin candles were like stars as they shone upon us one glance in the rush and i was captured by lust awed by her beauty i felt insecure but at the same time i'd never been so sure so i worked up some courage and ordered two gins the hours that followed felt just like a dream would she come with me i'm gonna ask her and see yeah no she was a stewardess and just divorced with a one-night stop, that her schedule had caused the fire was burning and it had just been stoked can't stand it anymore so i'm going for broke would you come with me for a cup of tea yeah no

Birds Are Us 02:40
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 a 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 are you really who you want to be

No Easy Love 02:34
NO EASY LOVE when i was a young boy, i could hardly wait until i found my first girl, i was really late she was a little older, cool and always got the dope and a lot more than that so i pushed the envelope i told her things just to get laid afraid to die young but as an old maid i promised her all the stars from high above just to make love when i grew a little older and already got laid there were a lot of women that i got to date to finally find the answer what love is all about if you want a happy girl, hold back but leave no doubt just tell her things that she wants to hear to make her feel happy, comfort her 'my dear' just build her golden castles in the air just to show her that you care there is no easy love

Thank You 03:12
THANK YOU someone told me life wasn't easy to take someone taught me how to learn by mistake someone explained me what is real what fake someone showed me how to read a book someone ate with me my first strawberrys, so good someone held my hand, pointed his finger and said 'look' thank you mum thank you dad for your patience someone gave me wings, said 'now you are free' someone stroked my head to make me fall asleep someone will love me no matter what will be so thank you mum thank you dad for your patience
5.
Believe 03:44
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
6.
LESSON FROM A STAR actually i'm waiting waiting for a star a star which i see falling falling from up above down here to make one wish the wish that you are here lately i'm still waiting waiting for a star a star which keeps its promise the promise that you are all around but there are no stars and no wish to bring you here so what would you do if you had to choose would you just wait even if you might lose or never reach what you are longing for
7.
No Excuses 04:51
NO EXCUSES tell me how often you are told that no matter what you've done in this or that, or any other way that you are ok some may say that you are dreaming too much 'you are wasting our time' but others would say we should keep in touch 'oh that's great, we should try to combine' others could tell you that you've lost your trace that you've already lost the race but others would dare to share their time with you hand in hand, out of that maze not all the things i've done in life were glorious, victorious and not all the things i'll do in life will be fortunate neither adviceable, nor reliable but always serious some may say that you defy your bliss that you deny reality but others may say and will see more than this reality in perfect symmetry i'll tell you how often i was told it's like this you have to obey in this and that and no other way fuck you, i'll do it my way not all the things i've done in life were glorious, victorious neither adviceable, nor reliable but always serious there's no need to apologize there's no need to take an advice from you not all the things i've done in life were glorious, victorious neither adviceable, nor reliable but always serious theres no need to apologize theres no need to compromise now tell me how often you are told that no matter what you will do in this or that, or any other way i'd like to say you are ok

ACCIDENTAL LOVE once upon a time when everything felt fine i woke up at nine due to sunshine and while i was looking outside i discovered a worm rather disgusting by a bird he'd been torn so i started to wonder if i was being warned by a story of nature the early bird gets the worm what does all that mean is it a hidden message where can i find out and do i have enough time it's up to you what you believe will come true so what is with you do you believe in accidental life a little later i saw the same bird caught by a cat and pushed into the dirt and when i decided to finally go to work this cat was being hunted by a dog who's named kirk and after a long day where i also got fired my boss said 'you are late and always come tired' and if it wasn't enough as i drove home from work i hit with my car the dog who's named kirk what does all that mean is it a hidden message where can i find out and do i have enough time it's up to you what you believe will come true so what is with you do you believe in accidental life as i was thinking it's enough for one day i got out the car and saw that kirk was ok and while i was petting him and thank god for this there came kirk's owner beautiful lis' what does all that mean is it a hidden message where can i find out and do i have enough time it's up to you what you believe will come true i tell you what i do i do believe in accidental love

about

Aaden Mainz, Germany

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.
