Remplissaient tous mes voeux

Just wanna be free in my world
Vivere per libertà
Vivere nella libertà
4. You’re so worth it – Giles Palmer
You are so worth it
You are the only one it takes to know what love is
You are so worth it
There is not any part of me who would want to let you go

5. Summercat – Billie the vision & the dancers
The plane took off and my love went with it.
The chilly wind whipped my both cheeks hard.
And the man next to me said ‘Everything is gonna be alright’.
I said ‘Nothing is gonna be alright, but thank you anyway’.
And then I saw your face in the airplane window.
I waved my hands and I shouted to you:
Tonight tonight tonight tonight
I wanna be with you Tonight tonight tonight tonight
I wanna be with you tonight
6. Best Day of My Life – American Authors
I’m never gonna look back
Woah, never gonna give it up
No, please don’t wake me now
This is gonna be the best day of my life

7. Trip The Light – Alicia Lemke
We’re gonna trip the light
We’re gonna break the night
And we’ll see with new eyes
When we trip the light
Remember we’re lost together
Remember we’re the same
We hold the burning rhythm in our hearts
We hold the flame
Alicia Lemke cannot be missed on any of these playlists. It’s the must-have on travel songs.
8. Home – Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you (2x)
La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I’m coming Home
I’ll follow you into the park,
through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you
