    Plus!!! The Artwork and the complete booklet!
    Of course I want you to have this as well! My lyrics and thoughts and some drawings are included. And the bonus extra extra: A colourful cover artwork, my dear friend Patty made for me. The black and white painted cover and back cover plus the wind rose are made by Kaddy Zöfert.

about

My First EP is finally out!
It took me from August to February to finish the 4 Track (plus one Bonus) EP, which I called "from EPstein to new York".
It contains my 3 songs about New York City, the first one takes place before, the 2nd is in and the last one after New York. Number 4 is about moving away and leaving a hole inside of you. And the Bonus Live Track tells you, what to do on a valentines day.
It's about thinking with your heart and listening to your brains, there are some zombies and strange little creatures...
Just listen...
And thank you for doing so!

As an special extra there is my official video of "NY" now available :)

Track Name: NY
I always wanted to go to New York
And now, what's just happening to me?
I cannot move any further than this
This is the place where I have to stay
Because you wanted me to

And I've got no reasons to complain
The ticket I bought years ago is no longer valid
They just didn't let us go
And I just forgot when I had to leave
Because you wanted me to

Central Park was always a dream
Lying there in the cold cold snow
Watching Snow Flakes dance
and Ice Dancers glance
And thinking about home in New York
NY have you left me here
and where are you now?
Only in my head or also in my heart?
Only in my head or also in my heart?

There are so many songs about you
By R.E.M and Jay-Z, by Kettcar and Tomte, by Ryan A. and Frank S.
But none expressing my t's and f's so well

Now how can I come
saying I miss you although we've never met?
But we never will
No we never, never will
For having you on my mind
Just like Georgia, I'll always love you
Track Name: Highline
Highline

12 feet above the street
That's where she takes me
12 feet above the street
That's where we're meant to be
people are watchign us
and the sundown
they're taking photos of us
but we don't know why
cuz' we're just not worth it
Having two kinds of brownies by "the Fat Witch"
which are very delicious and delightning
one's with choclate and walnuts
while the other one's with chocolate and jam
and Jen's sitting and listening

12 feet above the street
That's where she takes me
12 feet above the street
Our feet in the running water
A child running and splish splashing around
While I am busking
12 feet above the street

When the sun stes lower
We begin to walk down the Highline
And Jen's walking next to me

12 feet above the street
Watchgin the Hudson in Chelsea
As the streetlights go slowly on
Strangers can find anythign in the night
12 feet above the street
Strangers can find anythign in the night
12 feet above the street
Strangers can find anything in the night
Track Name: Shallow
Still I can feel my heart drum
Slowly but steadily
Although it is a million kilometers away
where it can never sleep

With the beginning I knew it had to end
Like a summer love in Neverland
When you're born you gonna have to die
If you feel you gonna have to cry

I stole a shovel in 72nd street
And I ran as fast as my feet could
Finally found a place lonely in the woods
I took a knife and began to cut
I dig a hole with my hands full of blood
I took my heart out and had a precise look
The beat was still there, it would never leave me there
I buried my heart in the centre of the city- borough no.6
And even though it's a million miles away
still I can hear it
And it's tearing me apart

Shallow I am walking just like zombies do
But I don't want brains to eat
they are much too glibbery
I nearly lost everything that I had
Walked over the East River where I had
A great, great, great, great view
I took the shovel again the knife as well
Same procedure as last day
Same procedure as every day
I cut out the tree of my body and had a precise look
I planted my lungs just like a tree in Brooklyn Town
And even though it's a million miles away still I can breath
the heavy and thick air of
William, William, Williamsburg

When you're born you gonna have to die
If you feel you gonna have to cry
And when you dream you gonna have to try

Shallow I am walking
Shallow I am walking
Shallow I am walking just like zombies do
dododododo
Shallow I am walking
Shallow I am walking
Shallow I am wlaking just like zombies do

brains brains brains brains
Track Name: Whole
It's kind of strange
What you're leaving when you're moving
Holes in walls from paintings and pictures
Shelves and mirrors

Holes in walls
Bodies in holes
Holes in heads

You leave an empty space
Nothing can fit
Except glue and paste
Tapestry covers them up again
But it's only make up
They're still there
Although you can't see

Holes in walls
Bodies in holes
Holes in heads

Whole but incomplete
So this is farwell
Farwell, my dear, farewell

oooooh wahow
Farwell, my dear, farewell
