about

ESPIN Berlin, Germany

His style of song writing is personal but universal, disarmingly honest but rich with emotion and wit. It is a determined but delicate mix of melancholy, bravery, vulnerable hope and humour.
Playing with a rich spectrum of kitsch Casio Beats, synths, saxophone solos, piano pop, guitars, and gentle but glorious melodies that lodge themselves in your brain, reluctant to leave.

Track Name: In Orbit
oh can't you see the effects of your gravity
holding me in orbit, I'm in orbit
you and I've got to find a way, communicate
I am aware of a existential weight to bear.
sometimes you've got to take the fall
to make it better than before
but now
it doesn't feel that way
it doesn't feel that right
that you're my world and I'm a satellite.
I'm in orbit. I'm in orbit, I'm in orbit of your love
I'm in orbit. I'm in orbit, I'm in orbit of your love
Sometimes you've got to take the fall
to make it better than, better than before, but now
it doesn't feel that way
it doesn't feel that right
I can see you go
I can watch your face
I can't get close, i'm in outer space
I'm in orbit. I'm in orbit, I'm in orbit of your love
I'm in orbit. I'm in orbit, I'm in orbit I'm in orbit of your love
Track Name: The So-Called Impossible
I just want to talk to you.
cut out the world and all the hullabaloo
just one and one equals two.
Not have to worry the way that we do
how to make an omelette without breaking eggs.
How to keep a dream awake
how to get heaven without being dead
how to keep the love we make
and I’m going to try the so called impossible
and I‘m not afraid of so called failure
and I‘m going to try the so called impossible
easy come, don't leave me no,
oh you're well within your rights to want to go but
easy is something else,
don't ask me you'll know when we're on to something else.
And I've been thinking of you
I've been wondering
How to make an omelette without breaking eggs
I’m gonna, I’m gonna
and I’m going to try the so called impossible
and I‘m not afraid of so called failure
and I‘m going to try the so called impossible
and I’m not afraid to fall on my face and start again but
don't try to stop me I’m doing what I want, and
don't try to stop me, I'm doing the so called impossible
Track Name: Come Around
In truth its easy for me to wait for you, for you to come around
I'n truth there's nothing that I could say.
In truth there's nothing that I could do anyway, to make you come around.
When will you come around?
In truth its easy for me to wait
In truth there's nothing that I could do anyway, to make you come around.
When will you come around?
Come around, when will you come around?
The film we starred in years ago
I'm watching now as the credits roll
You're caught in a story, you know how it ends
I feel like your talking words by the line
so will could come around, when will you come around
and will you come around, oh will you come around?
In truth its easy for me to wait, in truth there's nothing I could do anyway
to make you come around
when will you come around?
Track Name: A good idea
Thinking was never my strong point.
I’d rate myself middling-fair.
Common confusion’s a common conclusion yeah
And the only solutions to get help fast
but whoever I ask gives a funny smile,
like they were told a secret by God.
And they say ”All you need is a good idea”
All you need is a good idea.
Like: sliced bread, penicillin, condoms, pen-knives
Pizza, television, YouTube, YouPorn,
Education, sanitation, irrigation, integration, proclamation of emancipation.
You’ve got: D-locks, G-strings, Boreholes, Time machines,
MP3s, MP4s, catheters, rotating doors: what’s the common denominator?
And either I run with them or they run away with me
and at the end of the day all you really need…
All you need is a good idea.
All you need is a good idea.
All you need is a good idea.
All you need is a good idea.
All you need is a good idea.
All you need is a good idea. And follow it through
Track Name: Don't get lost on the world
if you're like me plans exist theoretically,
the more you're sure, the less its likely to be.
If you're like me you roam as far as you can
where you’ve never been, no you’ve never been, have we ever been before?
but don't get lost in the world (don’t get lost on the world)
it wouldn't be too hard to be like a post card.
And if you get lost in the world, I’m coming to find you
And when I get there I’m gonna pick you up and take you home.
if you're like me, you get bored easily
I’m tired of doubt, I don't need your pity, I’ve got to get out of this city
if you're like me surely you understand
whenever you fly high, you've got to land.
but don't get lost in the world (don’t get lost in the world)
it wouldn't be too hard, to be like a post card.
don't get lost in the world, (don’t get lost in the world)
you might have gone to far, don't know where you are,
And if you get lost in the world, (don’t get lost in the world)
I'm coming to find you
And when I get there I’m gonna pick you up and take you home.
Track Name: An Ordinary Man
I live in a house: nominally ordinary. Somewhere to be home.
The clothes that I wear are really immaterial at least they keep me warm.
The job that I do is totally replaceable: there's a million more of me.
It looks like my life is terminally temporary: must be something I can do
But what if I don't know how?
Oh what if I'm older now?
But what if I heard you say, you'd be with me either way,
even if I'm an ordinary man
The thoughts in my heard are really all that I can call mine, some of the time.
My truth and my lies are paraphrased and plagiarised. I want to change this tune.
But what if I don't know how?
Oh what if I'm older now?
But what if we make mistakes, can we be happy anyway?
Oh what if I heard you say, you'd be with me either way.
Even if I'm an ordinary man.
But what if I'm just a fake, and all of this is just a stage.
Oh what if it's just a phase, and we'll be moving on again.
But what if I don't know how, oh what if I'm older now.
And what if I'm just an ordinary man?
Track Name: Try not to think so much
I wish I could steal your mind
I'd take away your thoughts for the night
I wish I could hide with you in the stars
We’d look down and see how small we are.
And I can feel your pulse is fast
Oh slow it down. we need that heart
Please try not to think so much
Breath out
please try not to think so much
I wish you could loosen the knots
I wish you were aware of what you've got
I wish you could find a moment of peace
I wish you could fly like a bird released
now
please try not to think so much
breath
please try not to think so much
take a look outside and see not everyone has got the love they need
if can feel you can try not to think, try not to think so much.
Track Name: You never have to learn how to love
I was born this morning, fresh from the stars.
I learnt how to crawl, get on my feet and stand tall
but I never had to learn how to love
it happened before I touched the floor
The voices are calling
I learnt how to lie, and run and hide
and I learnt how to fight, I learnt how to fall with no trouble at all, no trouble at all.
But I never had to learn how to love
it happened before I touched the floor
you never have to learn how to love
but sometimes we forget and sometimes we get cold
and if I get cold can you remind me?
I walked for miles watched by the stars
I met a million people, some of them alive and some of them cold with the lights out in their eyes.
And if I get cold, and if I get cold can you remind me
you never have to learn to love
it happens before you touch the floor
you never have to learn to love
sometimes we forget if we don't do enough.
You never have to learn to love
sometimes we forget and sometimes we get cold,
and if I get cold, can you remind me?
Learn how to love: no I never never learned how, I never never learn
I never never learned how, I never never learn
Track Name: What Else?
What else, what else have you got?
Oh baby, What else, what else have you got?
There must be something more
than living on the wings
when they're kicking at you door
are you gonna let them in?
And tell me
What else, what else have you got?
What else, what else do you want?
blood, sweat and tears. My head on a plate
my deepest fears, I know you can't wait
my last request, the shirt on my back
my heart and soul I know you want that
there must be a little more
you can wring me out
when I'm broken on the floor
and all you've got is doubt
you ask me...
What else, what else have you got?
You tell me
What else, what else have you got?
Honey, honey, honey, What else, what else have you got?
What else, what else do you want?
Is it good enough? I dare to hope
Can we exchange a hangman's rope
for love and peace I can see and hear
tell me baby are we even getting near?
To blind ambition destiny fate
change the mission five minutes late
why we gotta look at the negatives
when we got more of the positives?
Yeah!
What else, what else have you got?
baby
What else, what else have you got?
Not a lot.
Track Name: Symphony
If you were here, I wouldn't have to face them on my own.
You are my glue, you keep me together.
I know what you'd say, you'd tell me to be the man you know I can take on whatever, just don't lose my way.

and I can still hear your whisper like a symphony in my ears.
I crave your voice, I want to listen to it for years
and when you're miles away, you're still near.

And if you appeared, you'd make me forget my doubt and take me out of my own apathy, you bring out the heart in me.
And I can still hear your voice in my ears: the calm and the delicate power whisper in my hour of need: you tell me to breath.

and I can still hear your whisper like a symphony in my ears.
I crave your voice, I want to listen to it for years
and when you're miles away,
I can still hear your whisper like a symphony in my ear.
and when you're miles away, I can still hear
your whisper like a symphony in my ears.
