Gábor Winand

Gábor Winand

Jazz has always enjoyed a paradoxical relationship with singing. For jazz instrumentalists have always tried to make their mode of expression the closest possible to vocal expression. And jazz vocalists take inspiration from instrumental improvisation. With others, Gábor Winand is renewing the basis of this paradox by turning it inside out like a glove. Franck Bergerot, Jazzman   Jazz has always enjoyed a paradoxical

1. Sanctuary 1 EUR

Sanctuary

Coming home
In the night
Looking up
To the light
Shining brightly,
A guiding star
Beckoning, welcoming me

- Your window,
Guiding star
Beckoning, welcoming me home

My beacon
My haven
An island of tranquility

Though I’ve searched
Far and wide
All this time
All my life
Just realized it’s
By your side that I found
A meaning to life

- Peace of mind,
By your side
Finally found my sanctuary
My beacon
My haven
An island of tranquility

*
Promise
Promise you’ll always be there
Swear
Swear that you’ll always be waiting
Shining
Beacon

Always
Always been there to show the way
Voice of conscience
Keeping me on the right path
Guide me
Guide me

2. If I Knew Where to Begin 1 EUR

If I Knew Where to Begin

If I knew where to begin

Is there anyone out there
Who can say
If I could go back in time
Would not change
Would not deny
Would not exchange
A single moment
Can any of you honestly say

No regrets
No shameful secrets
To cause you pain
Haunt you in your dreams at night

Should you ask I must confess
There are moments I’m ashamed of
Many things that I regret
Many things to make amends for
And if I knew where to begin...

3. Searching for the Light 2 EUR

Searching for the Light

Searching for the light

Green hills standing all around
This valley where I live
Lived here for a long time
A dull place where the rain falls
And the sun don’t ever shine
Dawn to dusk
Clouds obscure the sky
Grey mist clouds the eye
Never ever get to see beyond
Those green hills standing guard over us

Ref:
So I’m off in search of the light
                                That’s right

Wanna see what lies out of sight
                                Right now

Green hills round us standing guard
Feels just like a cage
Goin’ out into the wide world
Broaden my horizons
Go searching for the light
So don’t try
Try to hold me back
I’m off to try my luck
(’cos I) gotta see what lies beyond
Those green hills standing guard over us

Ref:
So I’m off in search of the light
                                That’s right
Wanna see what lies out of sight
                                Right now


 
4. Let Me Know Peace 1 EUR

Let Me Know Peace

Let me know peace

Father
Father, I’ve tried
Tried to live by your creed
Wise words
So hard to follow
I’m a reed shaken by the wind
Father
Too weak
Too weak to heed
Too weak to heed your word
Why
Why not let me find
Why not let me make my own rules
And though I don’t live by your book
– Turn the other cheek
Much too hard to keep
I’m too hardened to forgive –
Let me know peace

5. Friends Like You 1 EUR

Friends Like You

Friends like you

Now – I can see right through your mask
Worked for a while but that’s all past
No, you can’t fool me with your smile
Never quite reaches those cold grey eyes
*
You looked so innocent
You knew just what to say
To make me think you were a friend
To trust when I was down, so down...
*

Never questioned
Your affection
Never doubted
Your intentions
Underrated
You ambition

*

So – this goodbye will make my day
Nothing left to say
Let’s just go our separate ways
*

Yes – ’cos with friends like you around
There’s a surprise round every corner

6. Greeting from the Angel 2 EUR

Greeting from the Angel

Greeting from the Angel

Through the lofty Gothic portals
Sunlight blending into shadow
Vaulted arches towering

Candles flickering, scent of flowers
Through the brightly coloured glass panes
Sunlight streams in blindingly

Silence, deafening, footsteps muted
Wary stranger, timid, breathless
To the altar drawing near

I have come here seeking solace
Not in search of prayer or answers
Hear me
Hear me

I did not come to seek forgiveness
Do not wish for absolution
Hear me
Hear me
Hear me

Hear me ask you for a signal,
give me a sign
– head bowed I stand,
waiting here in supplication,
need a greeting from the Angel –
proof that there’s a higher being,
a force benign, a rock, a cradle,
a hand to hold in times of trouble
a wiser being to look up to,
a kinder being than us mortals
need a greeting from the angel

I have come here seeking solace
Not in search of prayer or answers
Hear me

7. Time 1 EUR

Time

Time

Time – sand trickling through
the glass
Time – a shaft of shadow
following the sun

Time – clocks ticking off the hours
Time – bells pealing out that soon the day is done

Time – measuring out our lives
Endless – while the years stretch out before us

Time – sometimes so slow to pass
Time – sometimes it moves too fast for looking back

*

Time – will slowly veil your eyes
Time – paints cobwebs on the face you cannot hide

Time – day turning into night
Time – so short a time to leave a lasting mark

Time – measuring out our lives
Endless – while the years stretch out before us

Time – day turning into night
Time – so short a time before we say goodnight

Time – final call
Bells will toll
For our souls
