about

I wrote and produced Random Day over the course of a few years,
recording in several countries both indoors and out, capturing random moments of rain, street, laughter, and breath.
At that time my main driving force was a search -
for answers how, for reasons why,
and for the light that has always miraculously appeared at the end of every tunnel.
The anticipation, like a guardian angel, pulled me out of darkness and uncertainty,
and whilst every relationship was unique and had its particular magic,
in the end, they were all connected in the same long novel - my own.

Striving has always felt like a natural part of my being,
and yet, it was whilst longing for simplicity that I realized
anything can happen on a random day.

Track Name: Dissipating Dream
Dissipating Dream // TELALIT

I think I've said the wrong things
My mind too scattered to think
Acted all serious when I wanted to shout out my joy

You blew me away, you're a creation
I stood beside, impatient
A tomboy for the first time in my life, so you won't notice I'm enchanted

Toes touching under water
Your arms pulling me closer
Blurry thoughts but none are important
Because time had stopped that moment
You say there is always time
So is it there for us as well?

I never felt that lucky
Walking on air in reality
But just once I wished to feel the ground and know what you were thinking

Diving in jars of color
Blue blending green uncovered
Driving around my country
You'll see I can be funny
It only takes one line
So is it written in my lane?

I hope in time it won't become
A dissipating dream
I painted in my mind

Toes touching under water
Your arms pulling me closer
Blurry thoughts but none are important
Because time had stopped that moment
If there is always time
Will it come for us again?
Track Name: Will I Ever Understand?
Will I Ever Understand? // TELALIT

One time a lover, other times a fool
Playing it cool, while burning up inside
Some things can't be denied
So why, you're acting rough with what you cannot fight

It's a mistake to let things perish when they want to live
You don't even grieve what you once yearned for
A new day reveals a new affair
It's just too disposable to bear

How can you bring back a friend, after crossing the line
How can you put aside the urge, you cannot satisfy
How can you realize what's temporary and what will never die
How can you tell true desire from a lie

One day when all is over
You'll come and try to cover
Well some things melt in rain but others won't ever be the same
No matter how many tears came down

How can you bring back a friend, after crossing the line
How can you put aside the urge, you cannot satisfy
How can you realize what's temporary and what will never die
How can you tell true desire from a lie

On top of it all we were always best friends
So what had happened here, shifted gear over-night
Will I ever understand?
Will I ever understand?

How can you bring back a friend, after crossing the line
How can you put aside the urge, you cannot satisfy
How can you realize what's temporary and what will never die
How can you tell true desire from a lie
How can you know when it's time to end
Will I ever understand?
Track Name: Castle of Lies
Castle of Lies // TELALIT

Doing what you love
Hating what you do
Lying to yourself feels true
Live in a castle of lies
Hating it too

Boneless parts cannot hold
You’re blinded by a crystal ball
Thrown away from your throne
Living somebody’s life
And keep claiming you score

Lying keeps you doubting
Who you really are

Memorizing words
Feels cosier than home
Away far too long, alone
Surrounded by clues
It’s a hopeless syndrome

Saying you’re too busy
While sitting in bed all day
Celebrating your stay
In the land of question marks
Preparing your fail

Lying keeps you doubting
Who you really are

Eating the food of honey-bees but hugging your elephant at night
You meet up to play some tunes but really sex is what's on your mind

Lying keeps you doubting
Who you really are

Doing what you love
Hating what you do
Lying to yourself feels true
Live in a castle of lies
Hating it too
Track Name: Random Day
Random Day // TELALIT

Walking home my hair is getting wet in the rain
Listening to the sound of the weary drops
Another day of wondering comes to an end
I was doing it again, why pretend

Keep seeing all these people I know from around
Time after time running into me
And you who live right across never come about
Oh, just give me a shout

I keep longing for a random day
Because it's then, they say, when the one you love appears
I keep longing for a random day
When the sun will light my way

A long time will pass, no more rain will hit
A new season will begin, the sun will shine above me
And suddenly when the day is here
You will be walking towards me, oh dear

What a beautiful day it would be
You will be smiling and waving as before
And I won't act crazy no more
That's the charm of random days

I keep longing for a random day
Because it's then, they say, when the one you love appears
I keep longing for a random day
When the sun will light my way

I long for the day that I will see you again
Because I know that on that random day
I will no longer care

I keep longing for a random day
Because it's then, they say, when the one you love appears
I keep longing for a random day
When the sun will light my way
Oh hey
A random day
Oh hey
A random day
Track Name: Guardian Angel, Anticipation
Guardian Angel, Anticipation // TELALIT

Every time a window breaks 
And once again I close my eyes
Because it costs too much to reattach my cracks

You’re my guardian angel

Waiting for the door to close 
For a gap to evolve
And you come to save me from my thoughts

You are my guardian angel, Anticipation

You’re the tingle in my tongue before a kiss
The chase before I reach
You’re the cloud in the sky before the rain begins
And what keeps me from jumping off that bridge

And once again he chose her over
And though I’m much stronger
You're standing here, never disappear from sight

You are my guardian angel, Anticipation

You’re the tingle in my tongue before a kiss
The chase before I reach
You’re the cloud in the sky before the rain begins
And what keeps me from jumping off that bridge

We need each other to keep existing
When the morning is too dark to see the day
And when we break you keep me hanging in

For the love that never ever ends
Anticipation, friend
For the love that never ends
Oh oh
Track Name: I Wouldn't Change A Thing
I Wouldn’t Change A Thing // TELALIT

(Two dreamers on your sofa
Chained in the light of this opera)

It was known all along
Where all your stories belong
Following the trusty rules
That bring fools like us to a finish line

It was known all along
I said it from the start
The beauty of love words and art
Won't keep me in for long

But, I wouldn't change a thing
I wouldn't change a thing
I wouldn’t change

It was known all along
My dreams laid in your bed
Long shot in the morning sky
Buys the time just for a little while

It was known all along
You know, the older should be wiser
But I never said that I’d warn you
And I couldn’t get over letting you go

So, I wouldn’t change a thing
I wouldn't change a thing
I wouldn't change

We had a moment of magic
That should keep us from the hate
That comes when it’s all gone
I set you free so fly away
And lose the weight of words that might have stayed

Because all is gone now
All is gone now
All is gone now

And I wouldn’t change a thing
Nor would I go back
Track Name: Friday Afternoon (to my father)
Friday Afternoon // TELALIT

(Intro)
Beyond the sky the winds are silent
Where are you now, are you flying
Are you happy now
Are you more open now to living
To love

Heavy arms, tired mind
And all you want is to be left alone
Behind that door

Too much to take, too much to give
Too many unspoken words
Built walls no man can break no one can see inside
Only he who is dying

Let this rain clear the unclarity
Secure the child's soul
Find stability in the unstable
Surrender, then there is love
Then there is love

Dad, now I understand
And I'm trying
To be and let them see, let them touch
Who I really am
Because I'm still here
I'm still trying
_____________________________________

All of my grey clouds
With your scent has faded
Into the air
High in the sky
Like the sound of a bird flying away

But on a friday afternoon you come into my mind
And in my heart, a sweet memory survived

When dreams have gone by
I could still hear your voice
For a little while
Whispering in my ear
That I’m gonna find my way, then you disappeared

But on a friday afternoon you come into my mind
And in my heart, a sweet memory survived
And in my heart, a sweet memory survived
_______________________________________
(Outro)
And I'm here
And I'm trying
To see who I really am
Who you really were
I'm still trying
Track Name: Goodbye
Goodbye / TELALIT

Many rivers will take you to the sea
Many rivers will take you
Mine had washed a wish away from me
Mine had washed away a wish

The dreams I had were nowhere to be found
So I had to leave them behind
And suddenly I felt myself transformed
Into this undefined thing

What you will be one day you can never know
Nor if you’ll like where you end up
But when you’re feeling lost and life doesn't go the way you want
You have to cross a desert until you come out on the other side

Banging your head on a locked door, time and again
You don’t see all these open ones calling you
Eyes that saw the dark can now walk the light of day
But don’t expect someone to show you the way

Some are born knowing, others keep on and on and on that search
For the only way out of their prison
And though sometimes freedom can make you feel overwhelmed
Those who fly won’t ever need to bend

What you will be one day you can never know
Nor if you’ll like where you end up
So when you’re feeling lost and life doesn't go the way you want
You have to cross a desert until you come out on the other side

Goodbye to an old dream that went away
Goodbye to prototypes of myself
Goodbye to the school-yard and years of being misunderstood
Goodbye to bad fittings and pictures taken with my eyes closed
