Cem Yuksel

I finally had some time to properly record two of my songs. Special thanks to Arikan Sirakaya and Taner Ayan for all their help in recoring these songs.

You don't seem to handle well
It hurts so deep that you can't tell
You hide your scar within your shell
It's alright, it's OK, that's all you say

But you wanna run in the pouring rain till you feel alright
Wash away the pain all through the night
Feel you're free again to go where ever you want
And leave it all behind

To smell the sun again
Shining on your skin
So bright, you feel alive again
But it ain't gonna happen tonight
Oh no, you gotta be stronger, and keep it up

The days are short and nights are long
You're about to fall but you pretend strong
It's so clear there's something wrong
When you say it's alright, it's OK

'Cause you wanna run in the pouring rain till you feel alright
Wash away the pain all through the night
Feel you're free again to go where ever you want
And leave it all behind

To feel the life again
Running through your veins
You long to feel alive again
But it ain't gonna happen tonight

Run in the pouring rain till you feel alright
Wash away the pain all through the night
Feel you're free again to go wherever you want
And leave it all behind

I believed in life
And I believed in dreams
But in this dead-end life I ain't got no room for these
I feel I'm stuck in a cage

I believed in man
And I believed in hope
I believed one day they gotta help me out
But still I'm stuck in a cage

And here I am crying out
Set me free if there is freedom out
'Cause I can't stand anymore
How can you bare it all being stuck in a cage?

I believed in love
And I believed it the most
But now I believe in pain, that's what I'm feeling the most
While I'm stuck in a cage

I believed in peace
But they believed in war
I told them "stop it all, it only hurts us more"
Who cares, I'm stuck in a cage

And today I'll open it up
I don't have the keys so have to break the lock
I believe I can, do you believe in me?
Or that I'm stuck in a cage?

We all are stuck in a cage
(Help me out this cage, hear me out for a change)
Yes we all
Don't you feel the same
Help me out, 'cause I have things to say
Who's keeping us in a cage?
You gotta let me out
Oh, don't you feel the same
I can't take it anymore
