Lyrics:

1.
“Pack your bags, we’re leaving home tonight”
Is what she said, then she left the room
Pacing footsteps and a heavy sigh,
is what i heard when she she left the room

If there ever was a moment where
grounds beneath me have failed to hold
It was then that I came to a turning point
I locked my heart, keep it safe and cold

2.
Have you heard the sound of desperate tears
by your mother, your only truth
Eight years old, too soon to feel the dread
Broken trust and there goes the youth

If there ever was a moment where
grounds beneath me have failed to hold
It was then that I came to a turning point
I locked my heart, keep it safe and cold

Leaving all behind, ashes of a life
Nowhere else go, but to the unknown
Tell me, when are we finally getting there?
But you promised me, we will have a safe new home

3.
One more thing, you’r father is staying here
There’s a pen, you just need to sign
You know mummy loves you more than him
There’s a war, we don’t have much time

If there ever was a moment where
grounds beneath me have failed to hold
It was then that I came to a turning point
I locked my heart, keep it safe and cold

Leaving all behind, I don’t understand
Will we ever find home without my dad?
Family is apart. Nowhere I belong.
What is war and what it really means,
I don’t even want to know

When are we getting there?
When are we getting there?

«So klingt „Sama“ in sich ruhend, leise und sensibel und geistreich aber auch dezent indirekt, ganz dem Album-Cover-Artwork entsprechend, … »
(soultrainonline.de)

«Mit diesem wunderschönen Album, ihrem Debüt als solo-Künstlerin, gelingt Lana ein enormer Schritt in die Unabhängigkeit. Die leichtfüßigen und gleichzeitig erdigen Kompositionen offenbaren bei näherem Hinhören einen Reichtum an Seelentiefe, an emotionaler und klanglicher Komplexität, eine Kollektion verschiedenster musikalischer Farben, die ganz hervorragend mit ihrem einzigartigen, expressiven Stil harmonieren. Absolut empfehlenswert!»
(jazz-fun.de)

«Ein Soloalbum, dass vom ersten Song an besticht.»
(KulturPort.De Magazin)

«Dabei gelingen ihr faszinierende Songgebilde, die aufgrund der vielen Wagnisse, die sie musikalisch eingeht, zuweilen ein wenig sperrig daherkommen, die aber durchaus berühren – nicht zuletzt, weil das Material mit Inbrunst und Hingabe vorgetragen wird und durchaus auch attraktive melodische Partien enthält.»
(Gästeliste.de Internet-Musikmagazin)

«Dabei stand ihr der renommierte Produzent David Torn (David Bowie, Tori Amos, u.a.) zur Seite, der ihre Songs mit Loops, Gitarre und einer Instrumentierung anreicherte, die er „Ambient-Genius-Wizard-Magic-Production“ nennt. Das trifft es ganz gut: das Album ist eine origineller, abgefahrener Mix aus träumerischen Ambient-Sphärenklängen, Folk, Jazz, Singer-/Songwriter und indischer Musik.»
(Melodiva – Female Music Network)

«Das Ergebnis ist dieses wunderbare, von Lebensfreude zeugende Album.»
