about

This is the first solo album by John Kampouropoulos (a.k.a. John Kamp), ex-lead singer of the Greek alternative rock band "Closer" (EMI/Chrysalis).

The album consists of a concept track list, and is actually describing a circle of events and emotions: hope for a new beginning; leaving all bad deeds and dark feelings in the past; confusion, anguish and fear, deliverance; desire and strength; back on the scene, no need for less; getting to meet new challenges; conflicts and endurance; rememberance and bittersweet feelings.

NOTE: some tracks may overlap one another, in order to preserve continuity.

Track Name: Front page
Flowers bloomy white in a shady window pane;
face all glittering, in a summer windy dawn;
I would sail away just to find what I was looking for:
just a miracle, through the open doors of mind.

Standing in my lonely front page, with a smile open wide, today;
Waiting for the summer sunrise, on an island far away, I am!

Searching for the light, frightened -steady!- I go on.
Mirrors end the face of a woman so in blur.
I would lay down (and) count the molecules on your face;
just a single glimpse, would adjust my empty space.

(would adjust my empty space)

Standing in my lonely front page, with a smile open wide, today;
Waiting for the summer sunrise, on an island far away, I am!
Track Name: Waving goodbye
Who cares?
Maybe it’s just one of those bright lights you want to face;
In any case:
I have to be frank, I have to believe you’re really near.

Waving goodbye you only rely on the pain,
which passes by.
Nodding at me while I stand still, painted blue,
will only despise you.

Who cares?
Maybe I hurt you so many times, I can’t recall;
Anyway;
you still try to steal the shadows’ fake deal, ‘n’ make it all yours.

Waving goodbye you only rely on the pain,
which passes by.
Nodding at me while I stand still, painted blue,
will only despise you.

Who cares?
Maybe it’s just one of those bright lights you want to face;
In any case:
you still try to steal the shadows’ fake deal, ‘n’ make it all yours!
You still try to steal the shadows’ fake deal, ‘n’ make it all - yours!
Track Name: Disco floor
Fades my self-connection, in a disco floor;
Embrace the counter fashion, with an intimate look inside.

Friends, coming over me in a soft parade;
still, an outlaw puzzles you again.

But please, don’t put me through this pain,
yet another kiss you give will save me!

Cry my freedom out, try to bail me out.
Shade; don’t want it to be real in me.

But please, don’t put me through this pain,
yet another kiss you give will save me!

Cry my freedom out, try to bail me out,
shade, don’t want it to be real in me.
Track Name: Wet dreams
You can feel what lies beneath;
Your tomorrow’s thoughts will take a while
to expect what you know, just for a change;
know what you expect through this time;
this time.

Your dress hides something; body wears the dress.
Is it your mind on top, or under all that?
Failed to reach you because of your style;
Smothering wishes to come and to lose back in time,
lose back in time;
back in time,
back in time.

Gi’mme your hand, I am alone;
On your wet dreams you wear blue dress.
Body on top, ‘n’ I get lost!
Gi’mme your hand, on your wet dreams!

But you seem a bit confused, I guess…
Well, I am too, and I need some relief.
Failed to lock you inside my life;
Withering flowers you cut, but I know it’s your pride;
I know it’s your pride - d’ah!...

Gi’mme your hand, I am alone;
On your wet dreams you wear blue dress.
Body on top, ‘n’ I get lost!
Gi’mme your hand, on your wet dreams!
Track Name: Reappear
Feeling; senses; emotions all in one
Breathing careless; love is all but none
Healers all around me; no one’s love is all I need.
Dreamers, they all drown me in a fiery shade of blue.

Into this hallow darkness, I’ll embrace
all needless visions, while my heart’s misplaced.

Hide this warning inside a blue train.
Cross this line; find out who’s to blame.
Lovers, all in white wings, no one’s meaning is all I hear.
Angels; they don’t want me in this garden made of steel.

Into this drowsy lightness, I’ll be free!
All needless visions will not reappear.

In my dreams, I’ll reappear!
Track Name: The unstable nature of a womanizer
Tell me what you want to be;
Is it me inside your dreams, or is it not?
There’s a possibility;
but, I guess, I mean you no harm.
Images of burned out skies enlighten me, as I pretend to be yours.

In this crowd you shout loud!
“I’m your priest, you’re my niece” - and I feel alright!

I tell you what you should become;
Is there any love inside your wretched heart?
There’s a speculation, but I guess you will mean me harm…
You look lost when I stare at you!
So, you think that I’m God, you silly girl? (silly girl!)

In this crowd you shout loud!
I’m your priest, you’re my niece - and I feel alright!

You are wet on your spider web, and I’m caught with low defenses.
But, be sure, that before you can poison me with your sting,
I’ll escape!
Track Name: My woman
My woman says, it’s just a situation;
that I don’t see things right.
My melodies are filled with romance,
like my heart, that’s on this fire.

Past midnight, and my world is drowning;
broken dreams of countless nights.
My woman laughs; my woman laughs,
My woman - laughs!
But she’s too damn young, to realize.

Can you hear my cry?
Can you see me drown?
Can you be… - would you be on my way,
when I crash on both sides?

Can you hear my cry?
Can you see me drown?
Can you be… - would you be on my way,
when I crash on both sides?
Track Name: The ghost (as outro)
And now that I’m almost a ghost like you,
I can fly wherever I want,
visit places and people I never dreamed of,
and see the wounds I made to my loved ones,
every time I acted like you,
every time I supposed to make things right…

And now that I almost can see through me,
I can cry as much as I want.
And the rain will wash away all my tears,
and the pain and scars from your love,
every time you thought I was yours,
every time you’re supposed to make things right…
