about

Melodies for the crackling living room. Hoping words that let the ear cry.
The young songwriter from Switzerland takes you with his debut CD "Coffee Poetry" into the secret tree houses of childhood, draws up a pompous Orchestra, before he lets it all collapse again with a single breath.
With stories of life, that sing genuinely, broken and yet full of trust, the twenty-four year old tells of his many travels - and then yet again of a meeting with the homeless from yesterday.
When one really listens to the lost sounds of Flavian, one senses life - in its complete simple beauty.

Track Name: sometimes
Sometimes

an empty case lays down at my feet
I forgot the words that bring back the heat
hope where there's no
hope

sometimes you sing even if you want to cry
I know they didn't care

the fire place reminds me of a time, it seems so close
we didn‘t care what we get, but who we met
hope where there's no
hope

sometimes you sing even if you want to cry
I know they didn't care

give me life
a reason to live for
give me a smile
a reason to die for


sometimes you cry even if you want to die
Track Name: get well
get well

I know you are the one
who‘s sitting here alone
In your hands this bleeding heart, oh no
for you I sing this song
because I long for you to get well soon

I don‘t know what to say
I don‘t know what to do
I don‘t know what to say

it‘s unfair that you get all the pain
the saddest part in this never ending game
lay your armor down tonight
the war is over, you won‘t have to fight no more
I hope that you will get well soon

few hopes and many fears
but don‘t hold back the tears
they may be like water in a desert place
this is the price we pay
but still I pray, I know you didn‘t fail
Track Name: where are you
where are you

you came to me, I heard the news
we hoped for love, you sang the blues
we drove the way, we had a blast
you disapeared, it didn't last
I don't know why you went away
I don't know how you feel today
but she carried you

where are you now
where are you now
that she's gone
that she's been fading away

you walk alone, I cannot reach
you're eating stone, I drown in bleach
I heard you crying that day
thought you were dying that night
but she carried you

where are you now
where are you now
that she's gone
that she's been fading away

you got to let her go
you got to let her go
please don't stop, just keep trying
you got to let her go
you got to let her go
I'm still here to care a whole lot
I know where healing flows

where are you now
where will you go
that she's gone
that she's been fading away
Track Name: love is all you need
love is all you need

I see more than I should
I feel less than I could
what brought me down here
can‘t read my own words

don‘t tell me you might explode,
when there still someone gets hurts
don‘t tell me you‘re awake
when you ignore and just won‘t shake

in the middle of nowhere
papercuts are flying (through the air)
are you still there to care
would you kiss

don‘t tell me you might explode,
when there still someone gets hurts
don‘t tell me you‘re awake
when you ignore and just won‘t shake
don't tell me if you want to go

Love is all you need
Track Name: wetsand
wetsand

see myself standing in wetsand
find myself standing in wetsand
where do you wanne go?

find the world sinking in wetsand
see the world sinking in wetsand

high above or down below
there's a fire that burns our homes
in a valley I've been told
there's a fire you see bones

wetsand
you see bones
