oog These songs hit in feels a type of way that no other song has brought out in Me. It is a very good feeling to say the least. Favorite track: Echoes.

Koncz Tamás So relaxing, this music is so real, it's real in a world full of unreal digital sounds mixed with cheap technologies. This is capitalism, cheap music got trendy and I became sad again about the world. I'm glad for Nate and his real instrumental music he creates. Nate's hippy music relaxes me so much. Have a Merry Christmas my friend ! Favorite track: Undone.

You lean in so soft Sun is rising Again as we begin We begin so slow I don't ever wanna leave Don't ever wanna go Lovers in the morning light Lovers in the morning light Light as each caress Floats upon our skin Your name upon my breath You know every word The ones I’ve never spoke That no-one's ever heard Lovers in the morning light Lovers in the morning light Wait, don't move, I feel Almost everything Delicate revealed Lain upon your breast We speak in velvet tongues Until at last we rest Lovers in the morning light Lovers in the morning light

Echoes 02:48
Try, try to see my point of view Echoes of another you Saving up your indiscretions I've seen the wild untameable More than less unshakeable Shaper who has named me shameless So leave me be I'm tempted Every rule I bend it I shake the weight and break the hate With everything that I am made of Try, try to see my point of view Echoes of another you Saving up your indiscretions I've seen the wild untameable More than less unshakeable Shaper who has named me shameless I'm looking for a friend to get me out of my head This chamber of reflections is just Paved with all my good intentions Try, try to see my point of view Echoes of another you Saving up your indiscretions I've seen the wild untameable More than less unshakeable Shaper who has named me shameless So if you are less stressed Let us put this to the test For who is love when loving not Those who have not loving got? Try, try to see my point of view Echoes of another you Saving up your indiscretions I've seen the wild untameable More than less unshakeable Shaper who has named me shameless

Let Love Win 03:19
If I woke up floating on the ocean I’d be hoping Because hoping is a remedy Combined with arms I’m blessed to have to swim me And faith I’ll find the shore I am one of those who share this hopeful world view Love is all we have, we have nothing we can lose Let love out and let love in Let love play and let love win When I woke up left by her I trusted My heart was busted But now it’s reconstructed And larger thanks to scars that stretched it Wider, wider, wider than before I am one of those who share this hopeful world view Love is all we have, we have nothing we can lose Let love out and let love in Let love play and let love win Oh, you, wandering soul You have found a home Oh, you, wandering soul You are not alone Noooo, nooooo I am one of those who share this hopeful world view Love is all we have, we have nothing we can lose Let love out and let love in Let love play and let love win

Undone 03:24
I am undone Come apart at the seams And it's so easy Become a part like me Well I'm here naked That's the truth and so are you And it's ok to remember that it's ok to Really feel it, feel every little bit You have saved now All your love for something true Give it all now To courageous ones like you I take my shoes off When I'm entering your home To be barefoot In the kingdom where you roam Your heart's a temple I am worshipping in it My heart is simple It loves to sit and be sunlit You have saved now All your love for something true Give it all now To courageous ones like you I see you coming Leave behind your heavy load Life's a race, but only when you're running Pack your bag, we're gonna hit the road Seems I'm crazy, but I don't mind so much When I'm labelled lazy by those filling up Their time with busy, busy this and busy that It seems that crazy comes in many flavoured hats I seem weird to those who fill their minds with stuff Cos I like empty emptiness seems just enough, to me Emptiness is just enough...

Twilight fell upon the darkening road I found myself, again, alone Street lights went out by one by two by three And I revelled in the shadows that had grown Oh yes I revelled in the darkness I had known I'd been there and back again so many times I knew That the dance I danced was anything but new Still, I had seen him watching me that old man in the moon And I thought hey well what else can I do I'm here to dance I'm gonna dance until it's through Wrestling in the desert of this broken afternoon Makes me wish I packed my wrestling costume Yes the jester is all dressed up as if he was a loon Have you listened much to what it is he's doing? Oh, there's such method in the madness of his tune Traveller been travelling for oh so many years He's worn right through his effervescent fears Listening to everything he treads so soft he hears The world whisper softly in his ears Saying, "everything is not what it appears."
