Solo's second album, with a high emphasis on the use of synthesizers, though still with the warmth Solo is renowned for. Solopeople is about people who decide to live on their own and who, by that, build their own world.
Solopeople was very well received and brought forth Solo's first hit single "Come back to me".

Track Name: Satie
Satie

Time to toll the evening bell
Erik maitre de chapelle
Solemn music fills the Paris sky

Listen, roses can be heard
Counterpoints and without words
A song that tells us you had laughing eyes

You bear losses and crosses, vexations

At home, alone, alone

It’s irony that brought me here
But you’re about to disappear behind your curtain of thorns divine

You spun a web, shut the door
Left the world behind once more
Surrounded by the relics of your time

Alone, alone

On your own 27 years alone
Hereupon a vagabond when you passed on, pass on

On your own 27 years alone
What have you done
You got blood from a stone
In your songs
Sounds of laughter of someone alone
All gone, come home
Track Name: Opportunities
Opportunities

Good luck to you
Run off you fools
You’re feet will follow later

Make way, relate
There’s no escape
We’ll find today tomorrow

What it is baby can’t you see
It’ s being here or not to be
So why don’t we?
Stick together baby, we got soul
Heaven knows that after all
We can’t live off rock & roll

Stay put, hands up
Hand out your love
Receive, return, surrender

We push and pull
Then bend the rules
In time for worse and better

And God’s glue got me dreaming I’d stuck on you
Don’t remember what we have to
Just forget the things we should have done
Track Name: Onandon
Onandon

Families out on parade
Women are minding their ways
Teenagers drawn by the fire
And bellies filled with desire

Mothers and fathers, brothers and sons
Daughters, sisters, all and then some
Remember the story is old
It goes on and on

Old men drowning their tears
They’re drunk from an orgy of years
All part of the plot and the fun
A history of righting our wrongs

Mothers and fathers, brothers and sons
Daughters, sisters, all and then some
Remember the story is old
It goes on and on and on
Bound to bond and love and mourn
And on and on and on

And so it goes,
We give what we get,
Yet what they know
Is what we’re told
So you might add a little hurt
Add a little hope next time
But in this life
This time we’re lost and it goes on


"Matter over mind"

We made the change from science to movement
Romantic conceit evermore

Might know what we know, like we think that we’re thinking
But the sun has set here before

And somebody spoke of a light in the distance
Too far away to aware
But your kiss is a kiss is a kiss and I’m waiting for roses to grow anywhere
Track Name: Come back to me (free download)
Come back to me

You got to come back to me
I’ll paint you the picture
I’ll write you poetry
Devote my life to All you need is love

Although I prefer to be
Somewhat lonesome
And comfort worries me
You unleash an awful lot of

Take my hand
Bend my will
Hold me tight
Kiss and thrill
But give me a life before you leave

Because you got to come back to me
You got to make way for me
You got to come back to me
Make way for me
Come back to me
and tell me I’m not the only one in love

You got to come back to me
Home’s where the hurt is
Where hugs and hostility
Go hand in hand
With elegance and ease

Crack your whip
Break my will
Hold me tight
Kiss me still
But give me your love before you leave

Because you got to come back to me
Track Name: Everything goes
Everything goes

Everything goes you just have to wait
You think that you know some
but it’s all going to change
Our world on the wane?
Was it ever the same?
Get a hold of grip you might lose it again

Waiting and wondering see years passing by
We’ve lost some good faith but our hope’s still alive
When the flower is ready soon
the bee uninvited will come for its bloom

Everything goes you just have to wait
The tide flows with the waves
A walk on the beach leaves footsteps behind
The memory sticks in the mind
Whatever the cost of loving and trust
Remember it is not going to last
It all fades to grey gets blown away and finally lost in the past

A dream without sleep is a nightmare that’s real
The future will hold what we try to reveal
Like who wins the war, who is tough
Please wake me up, I’ve seen enough

And everything goes you just have to wait
The tide flows with the waves
Here comes the sea to swallow the beach
Memories washed out of reach
Whatever the cost of hating and loss
Remember it’s not going to last
It all fades to grey gets blown away and finally lost in the past
Track Name: The vanity of our affairs
The vanity of our affairs

I saw the sun
I saw the light touch my skin and it felt warm

I heard a sigh (he heard his sigh)
I heard my sigh
I hurt my lungs and it burnt my tongue as air went by

These words I meant to speak
But it’s silence that we reap
This land is a wasteland
A "taste land" for bitter and for sweet

On my lips, so gently kissed
I perceived lament and hiss
Lightning strikes, as known hereby, sometimes twice

And then I found what I came here for
The relics of our Civil War
Trenches, blackened trees and mud up to our knees

These words I meant to speak
But it’s silence that we reap
This land is a wasteland
A "taste land" for bitter and for sweet

This land is a wasteland
It’s the vanity of our affairs
Track Name: Over the country
Over the country

Round and round and round we go
Sky above and earth below
To oversee the country, just hold on

Here’s our house and the playground
A memory of things to come
Listen to me, when you think it’s gone

Whatever comes of this
Tomorrow never knows
I’m far away and close
On your radio in a song that goes

We’re floating over waving hands
Slow rivers, flattest land
Hear what can be heard there on the ground

Bells are ringing, choirs singing
People bringing praise in churches
Listen to us, we believe in sound

Whatever comes of this
Tomorrow never knows
I’m far away and close
On your radio in a song that goes

Round and round
In cities and through towns
It all comes down to airwaves filled with sound

Whatever comes of this
Tomorrow never knows
I’m far away and close
On your radio in a song that goes
Track Name: Too much
Too much

There’s nothing out there
But it’s taking toll of me
Sounds of nightlife in a quite street

You rise to find me
But I hide from where you are
Keep your distance, you’re not that far away

It’s too much, too soon
You’re in these words
you’re in my tune
It’s too much, too soon
To write a song about you
It’s too much
But still it’s not enough

Whatever happens
There’s no tomorrow just today
We need some sleep
But I prefer to stay awake

Midnight fire throws its flames against the panes
When your embrace burns my skin again

It’s too much, too soon
You’re in these words
you’re in my tune
It’s too much, too soon
To write a song about you
It’s too much
But still it’s not enough
Track Name: Don't change
Don’t change

My god I felt charmed
When you said you were lonely
Then it came to me
We’re no dying breed
And I’m not the only one

It would take out the fun of ‘still being alone’
But I knew I’d surrender
You don’t pick a fight at the end of your life with someone much stronger

Don’t ever change, sweet heir of my ways
Just state that I’m lovely, babe
For the monster in me, is a fragile beast
When you put your arms around me

You need not say hush
Ole bigmouth’s not crying
We cannot correct these simple facts
Being born, living life and dying

You came rather close, to admit I suppose
You were hurting to hurt me
Yes it’s hard when you’re near the finish my dear
But please please please take it lightly

Don’t ever change, sweet heir of my ways
Just state that I’m lovely, babe
For the monster in me, is a fragile beast
When you put your arms around me

My god I felt charmed
When you said you were lonely
Then it came to me, our blood is cheap
Soon left as the only one

Don’t ever change
Track Name: Wonderboy, wiseman, prophet
Wonderboy, wiseman, prophet

Wonderboy delivered lightly
Slightly mad but lucid in the long run
The stage, the play, the puppeteer
Waiting for the lord to lead that someone

We can only stare till he’s gone
Always on his own
What went wrong

He dwelled on generations past
A wiseman, a prophet in the long run
Beauty can’t be overseen
Heaven’s in the leaves of green
On the spot where you can always meet him

He will only stare into the sun
Proud and on his own
what went wrong

We can only stare till he’s gone
Always on his own
Not that wrong

Cause heaven is a place
I mean heaven is a place
Heaven is a place for us to stay
Track Name: Better man
Better Man

Could have been a better man
A better lover and a better friend
I could have been what I was told to be

Could have been what you wanted to
But I never do the things I should
Will I become what I have been all along

It takes time to find your life
And a life to find that time
It takes as little as we know
It takes passion, it takes peace
Fights and disbelief
But where life leads you, you must go

Could have been a poet or
Simply be the boy next door
Off to war, a soldier smoking roses

I have had my money’s worth
Bought and sold and feinted hurt
But destiny is the ground beneath our feet

It takes time to find your life
And a life to find that time
It takes as little as we know
It takes passion, it takes peace
Fights and disbelief
But where life leads you, you must go

When it all comes down
When it all blows up
When the choices have been made
When it all blows up
When it all comes down

It takes time to find your life
And a life to find that time
It takes as little as we know
It takes passion, it takes peace
Fights and disbelief
But where life leads you, you must go
