Arik Dov Leipzig, Germany

I'm just a guy from San Francisco, with a guitar, singing songs that I wrote. Spreading love and smiles with songs that may be a little too melancholy for a summer day.

Track Name: Sorry not for Speaking
Finding out my reasons for why I'm acting strange
I thought this love was over but she writes me every day
I thought the world was simple, then I went insane
I come to these conclusions, then turn around again

And still I try to decide my fate
I don't know who I wanna be
I'm stuck in space
With no oxygen tank
I can't relate to the things that all the people say
I'll never change to who It is I wanna be
I wanna be me

Sorry not for speaking I'm not feeling calm
These words have got some meaning, I don't want to speak wrong
I'm sitting with my family, I'm the youngest one
They say I'm at the age to figure out who to become

And still I try to decide my fate
I don't know who I wanna be
I'm stuck in space
With no oxygen tank
I can't relate to the things that all the people say
I'll never change to who It is I wanna be
I wanna be me

I'm just sinking in my bed
Clenching my fists my eyes feel heavy
I wonder what it's like to be dead
I worry that no body loves me...
I'm waiting for love

It don't make me feel better to know that we're all lost
The president the preacher, they'll pretend at all costs
I'll be singing songs till my wrinkles tell my story in brail
I'm gonna keep on searching though I'm quite sure I'll fail

And still I try to decide my fate
I don't know who I wanna be
I'm stuck in space
With no oxygen tank
I can't relate to the things that all the people say
I'll never change to who It is I wanna be
I wanna be me
Track Name: Love Rush
I don't remember that the stars were so lonely
I tell myself "One day I'll be happy"
Lately, things have been blurry
I'm going nowhere but I move in a hurry

This coffee ain't enough to wake me from this dream
Two years without her touch
I'm looking for a woman and a love rush
Remind me how to thing
I'll go crazy and she'll tell me:
"Life is just a bottle, and we've got much to drink"

I go to sleep to forget the pain
Fall in love with my blanket again
My best friend is made of strings
She loves me crazy and don't think I'm strange

This coffee ain't enough to wake me from this dream
Two years without her touch
I'm looking for a woman and a love rush
Remind me how to thing
I'll go crazy and she'll tell me:
"Life is just a bottle, and we've got much to drink"


Life is just a bottle, and we've got much to drink...
This coffee ain't enough to wake me from this dream
Two years without her touch
I'm looking for a woman and a love rush
Remind me how to thing
I'll go crazy and she'll tell me:
"Life is just a bottle, and we've got much to drink"
So lets get drunk tomorrow, we'll be happy in our dreams
Track Name: California
Missing the green trees and mountains and ocean
Pretty girls with brown hair
Some said I'd change when I saw new horizons
But my world's stayed the same
I'll only talk when my heart she tells me
I'll only write when I'm down or loving
And I, would talk with you all night

From San Francisco all the way to Timbuktu
To crazy rat races for money in a pool
To the driest of days without any rain
Oh I, was drowning in the Bay

Is it so selfish to want a life with choices
To be loved by my dreams
I'm making plans for the times thats commencing
Plans never empty, only dumb
Because I'm only twenty and I'm thinking plenty
What I've learned? How to cry, their dying
They're all, trying to sing

From San Francisco all the way to Timbuktu
To crazy rat races for money in a pool
To the driest of days without any rain
Oh I, was drowning in the Bay

I met a man, sung a song he was blind
Tapped his foot, one, two, three
"The only world I know's the world I make up
The rest make believe
There are three things that I need to be happy:
A purpose a wife, and I forgot the other,
we'll say, the other's a dream"

From San Francisco all the way to Timbuktu
To crazy rat races for money in a pool
To the driest of days without any rain
Oh I, was drowning in the Bay
Track Name: Sweet but Crazy
She's got time for money
She's got time for games
She's got time to act funny
But don't go call my name
I ain't coming home again

She wants to see me on the weekend
Wants me to meet her best friend
He's got nice shoes and a slick car
He even plays a mean guitar
She's been doing this from the start
Messing around with my open heart

She's got time for money
She's got time for games
She's got time to act funny
But don't go call my name
I ain't coming home again

Sunday she loves me
Monday she wont touch me
She says "Guys are disgusting"
Then I see her driving in his mustang
She asks me why I'm in pain
"Darling your fucking insane"

She's got time for money
She's got time for games
She's got time to act funny
But don't go call my name
I ain't coming home again

I'd like to believe she's sweet and cares
But she's got that glare in her eyes I can't describe...

I ain't got time for money
I ain't got time for games
I an't got time to act funny
But don't go call my name
I ain't coming home again
Track Name: Water
Darling rock bottom is three feet from our knees
Crying at the subway this last kiss is all I need
This won't be forgotten
All the love and all the times you cheat

Still I don't know, where the people go
Friends are leaving town
The leaves are turning brown

There ain't no more water
For my heart to be free
There is no place farther
Than my home by the sea
There is no more loving
When the flowers start to bleed
There is no more water left to drink

Remember when the tank was full with love hot gasoline?
We would drive in the fog all the way on Twin Peaks
But I knew something was wrong
When the sun came out and dried up all the creeks

Still I don't know, where the wind blows
Friends are leaving town
The leaves are turning brown

There ain't no more water
For my heart to be free
There is no place farther
Than my home by the sea
There is no more loving
When the flowers start to bleed
There is no more water left to drink

Don't say that you love me
When you're off with some man
Getting drunk off of money
Aint the best of your plans
I'm gonna climb to the top of the mountain
Up with the clouds
See that life ain't missing something
Without you around

There is so much water
For my heart to be free
There are places farther
Than my home by the sea
There is so much loving
When the flowers start to breathe
There is so much water left to drink
Track Name: Amsterdam
Remember the first day you left me?
Freedom rang in my head like bells
Now I'm in Amsterdam without no clue
Guess I'm trying to run away from you

But I'm losing my mind, I'm losing mine
Taking my time, I'm taking time
Trying to get high, I'm getting high
Still I don't even know why
She's an east coast girl on the west side

Refining the art of avoiding people
Never have to talk if I can't be seen
Acting normal is the strangest thing
I can never seem to fit it into my routine

Cuz I'm losing my mind, I'm losing mine
Taking my time, I'm taking time
Trying to get high, I'm getting high
Still I don't even know why
She's an east coast girl on the west side

I'm in some strangers room
looking to the clouds for a little bit of inspiration
Two days without no food
and now I'm starting to lose my patience...

Cuz I'm losing my mind, I'm losing mine
Taking my time, I'm taking time
Trying to get high, I'm getting high
Still I don't even know why
She's an east coast girl on the west side
