Frank Wenzel If you have never heard the Swiss language Romansh before please check out Ursina. Her songs - some in English, some in her native language - are beautiful and melancholic and her calm yet powerful voice is absolutely amazing. Favorite track: La stad ei vargada.

Track Name: One Foot
ONE FOOT

One foot on the ground
the other follows.

One step at a time
nothing else seems right.

One foot on the ground
the other has to follow

No chance to decide
in which direction to go.

Time is not on my side
is it maybe on yours?
And can you please tell me what is right?
Which direction I should take,
if I can walk or if it’s better to take a train,
is it better to take a train?

To go
on this never ending journey that we call
our live
with all its ups and downs that hit us all the time.

One foot on the ground
the other follows.

One step at a time
nothing else seems right.

One foot on the ground
the other has to follow

No chance to decide
in which direction to go.

Time is not on my side
is it maybe on yours?
And can you please tell me what is right?
Which direction I should take,
if I can walk or if it’s better to take a train.

'Cause time is not on my side
is it maybe on yours?
And can you please tell me what is right?
Which direction I should take,
if I can walk or if it’s better to take a train.

Is it better to take a train to go?
Track Name: Break Out
BREAK OUT

You long to see what is going out there
and you long to feel that on your naked skin.
But instead of breaking out and going somewhere you like it
you hide in here...

And you create
your own little world
of doubts and illusions.

Yes you create
your own little world
of doubts and illusions.

I tell you now what someone should have told you a long time ago
not everything is bad and there a good things going on in this world.
There are people laughing and children are dancing around in circles
only you hide here in your lonely room...

And you create
your own little world
of doubts and illusions.

Yes you create
your own little world
of doubts and illusions.

Break out, break out
Only you can help yourself now.
Break out, break out
Only you can help yourself now.

Break out, break out
only you can help yourself now.
Break out, break out
only you can help yourself now.
Break out, break out.

You long to see what is going out there
and you long to feel that on your naked skin.
But instead of breaking out and going somewhere you like it
you hide in here...

And you create
your own little world
of doubts and illusions.

Yes you create
your own little world
of doubts and illusions.
Track Name: La stad ei vargada
LA STAD EI VARGADA

La stad ei vargada
e gl’atun stat avon esch.
L’amur ei sgulada vinavon
senza far fretg.

La tiara ei calma
è il vent dad buc sinzur.
Ei para sco sche nuot fuss stau
ni nuot da gronda valur.

Ti ed jeu, quei ei historia, quei ei vargau.
Nus ensemen, quei hai mai propi dau.
Jeu e ti quei fuss en sesez aunc bi,
mo tut las stentas han purtau nuot
aschia ch’jeu hai dau si...

Ils dis ein pli cuorts
la notg cuviera il marcau.
Glischs da tuttas colurs saultan entuorn,
entuorn miu tgau.

Las plontas ein niuas
lur vestgiu schai uss giun plaun.
Pér cu tut ei finiu
ves’ins con bien ch'ei fuss atgnamein stau.

Oh miu car,
nua ei la stad è ida?
Oh miu car,
nua ei la stad svanida?

Ti ed jeu, quei ei historia, quei ei vargau.
Nus ensemen, quei hai mai propi dau.
Jeu e ti quei fuss en sesez aunc bi,
mo tut las stentas han purtau nuot
aschia ch’jeu hai dau si.
Track Name: Time Is A Thief
TIME IS A THIEF

Time is a thief we will never catch.
Time is money, time is worth every breath, every little caress.

Memories just exist in our minds.
Everyone has his own little movie in his head.

Live your life the way you want to.
Break the rules, step out of your shadow.
Be true to what your heart tells you.
And love as if there’s no tomorrow

Time is passing as we speak.
Every tick of the clock is extending our past history.

Memories are the treasures of our past.
We must keep them safe, cause they remain in the end.

Live your life the way you want to
Break the rules, step out of your shadow
Be true to what your heart tells you
And love as if there’s no tomorrow

The time is runnin’ out, time is runnin’ out
time is runnin’ out, I can’t stop the
time is runnin’ out, time is runnin’ out.

The time is runnin’ out, time is runnin’ out
time is runnin’ out, I can’t stop the
time is runnin’ out, time is runnin’ out.

The time is runnin’ out, the time is runnin’ out,
the time is runnin’ out, the time is runnin’ out,
the time...
