1. Mother’s heart



  • I. A young man was riding o’er the fields, racing like the wind,
        his heart full of pride.
        He came to a cottage by the river, he knocked on the door
        and soon he kissed his bride.
        He said "Oh come and live forever by my side,
        I wanna see you dressed in white!
        She looked him straight in the eyes
        And with her sweetest voice,
             she said:

  • Ref:  "Bring me your mother’s heart, and I’ll be your wife!
        Bring me your mother’s heart, and I’ll be your wife!
        I will give you my love for your mother’s life,
        I will give you my love for your mother’s life..."

  • II. He turned his head and went away, homeward he did ride,
        chasing the shadows of the night.
        His heart was turning round and round, searching for a way,
        searching for a light, he was praying:
        "Oh, sweet Jesus, help me, tell me what to do!
        She has torn my whole world in two!"
        And from behind him, far away,
        He still could hear her say:

  • Ref.

  • III. When he reached his home in the deep and darkest night,
        he found his mother sleeping there.
        He tore her heart right out of her chest, madness in his eyes,
        like a beast, he was killing her.
        He rode like the devil on his milk white stallion, a killer on the run.
        While the thunder was rolling and the rain was falling,
            he was going on and on.
        But when he raced along the way,
        he heard his mother say:

  • Fin:  "Oh my son, I forgive you, for your soul I pray,
        Oh my son, I forgive you, for your soul I pray,
        But don’t you go further, you have lost your way,
        Oh, don’t you go further,
            you have lost your way..."

    2. Rose of Hope



  • I. If you could look behind the walls,
        then you would find the secret garden, hidden deep inside my heart.
        You could see the rose of hope,
        blooming there between the shards of the dreams that came apart...
        The rose of hope is blooming again,
        but I’m still afraid of losing...

  • II. Far beyond the storm and rain
        there’s a place where peaceful waters forever flow.
        That little rose began to grow
        in the middle of that garden oh so many years ago.
        Her bloom is shining in your eyes,
        but I’m still so afraid of losing

            so I keep the secret...

  • Int: Time goes by like the colors of the summer,
        the leaves will wither away so fast:
        Who can tell whatever will happen
        And how long this bloom is gonna last?

  • III. If I could look behind the walls
        maybe I could find the way, the way I have to choose.
        Too many dreams are lost forever
        so I’m afraid to pick that rose, I could win but I may lose.
        I keep the silence until I see a rose,
          that’s blooming just for me
            in the garden of your heart
              in the garden of your heart.

    3. Blind



  • I. The time I have loved you is not so long ago.
        My feelings were so pure and true, You should have let them grow.
        I could not give the world to you, but everything I had,
        Girl, how I loved you I never will forget

        But you gave it all away for your foolish pride
        and some strange sense of freedom keeps you restless in the night...

        Girl, why don’t you give yourself a chance?
        Have you ever felt the real love or the magic of a romance?

        You’re a loser by nature if you refuse to change your mind,
        You think that I’m your enemy `cause you don’t know that you’re just blind!

  • II. You see the door is closing and there’s nothing left to show.
        Whatever you’ve been looking for - how could I ever know?
        You should have told me right in time before the curtain had to fall,
        but you, you ran away instead to hide behind your wall!

        Yeah, you gave it all away for your foolish pride
        and some strange sense of freedom keeps you restless in the night...

        Girl, why don’t you give yourself a chance?
        Have you ever felt the real love or the magic of a romance?

        ||:You’re a loser by nature if you refuse to change your mind,
        You will think the whole world hates you `cause you don’t know that you’re just blind! :||

        You are just blind!

        You are blind! Blind! Blind! Blind! Blind! Blind! Oh, you are blind!

        You are just blind!

    4. J*.wav



  • I. I know this is the time to be happy at last,
        to let the sun shine on the shadows of the past.
        Bad memories I have to keep
        In this heart of mine, so deep
        but they should never take my sleep
        for I found a new dream.
        I found a new dream.

  • II. I know that I don’t want to be restless any more.
        And I believe I have found what I’ve been looking for.
        I know that I should feel so free
        when I’m with you and you’re with me.
        I raise my head and I can see
        The early sunlight.
        You are my sunlight.

  • Int.: So what the hell is wrong with me?
        Still I cannot fly, you see.
        Help me, someone help me,
        help me, someone help me, please!

  • III. I know this is the time to set my spirit free,
        for there’s a way we can go, together you and me.
        My love is more than I can show
        For my wings still have to grow.
        I’ll always try to let you know
        how much I love you.
        Oh, how I love you!

    5. Nice Guy’s Blues



  • I. Good friends: That’s what you want us to be.
        Got enough of them "Good Friends", if you don’t love me, set me free!
        Now that I gave you all the help I’ve been longing for
        you say, there’s nothing but friendship you feel for me.

  • Ref: I gave you comfort, I gave you everything that I could give,
        now I feel so empty and blue.
        So, what about me, oh what about me? No, no longer I’ll be there for you!

  • II. Oh don’t you cry, your tears are so untrue!
        If you really think it over you will see I’m right.
        You can’t imagine, no you can’t imagine, baby,
        the pain I feel every single lonely night!

  • Ref: I gave you comfort, I gave you everything that I could give,
        now I feel so empty and blue.
        So tell me: What about me? Oh no I can’t be sorry
        that no longer I’ll be there for you!

  • Int: It happened so many times before,
        I just can’t bear it any more:
        I help them to spread their wings and fly
        and then I see them with another guy!
        They say: "May I introduce, here is my new lover.
        Oh thanks for your support my "friend", look, I got a new lover..."

  • Ref: I gave you comfort, I gave you everything that I could give,
        now I feel so empty and blue.
        You know that I love you, but you don’t care!
        So don’t you wonder, don’t you wonder,
        that no longer, no longer I’ll be there for you!

    6. Just Dreams



  • I. Don’t look behind the curtain, there’s a hidden world of dreams
        and what you’ll see is all just phantasy.
        Don’t let my dreams be your reality,
        don’t touch the curtain, let it be!
        Don’t touch the curtain, please let it be!

        `Cause sooner or later these dreams will fade away
        into a memory, one day.

  • II. Now you look at me as if I were a strager
        and you are scared of what you think you found.
        You can’t see it’s just a dream
        and now your mind is spinning around.
        I know your mind is spinning around.

        But sooner or later these dreams will fade away
        into a memory, one day.

  • III. I’m your good friend, that’s just what I wanna be
        until the sun dries up the sea.
        Dreams, just dreams, don’t take them out of me.
        You’d better keep your spirit free.
        You’d better keep your spirit free,

  •     because our friendship shouldn’t fade away,
        let’s keep it getting better every day.

    7. Lullaby



  • I. Hush, little baby, it’s time to go to sleep,
        close your eyes and I’ll kiss you goodnight.
        Don’t be afraid of the darkness, someone’s watching over you,
        there’s an angel standing by your side.

        And the man in the moon, he will send you a dream
        coming through the window, sliding down a beam.
        And the stars in the sky, they will sing a lullaby
        for my baby,
            sleep well and good night.

  • II. Every day I can share the wonders in your eyes,
        it makes me feel like a child as young as you.
        Since you were born there’s a light, shining clear and bright
        and the world seems to be completely new.

        And the man in the moon is looking down from the sky,
        I think, I saw him twinkle, and I know the reason why:
        Well, he knows how much I love you,
        Oh Jesus, yes I do!
        Oh, my baby,
            sleep well and good night.

        Lalala...

    8. Sorry



  • I. I lay awake last night, listening to the rain,
        my heart is split into joy and pain...
        It felt so good to hold you and kiss you
        And I am sure that I will miss you, but
        I can’t forget sweet Lady Summersun.

        You love me dearly, that’s what you say,
        But my heart is beating so far away.
        Oh, we were flying so high,
        We touched the stars in the sky,
        But the stars can’t replace the sun I’m longing for.

  • Ref: I’m sorry, you’ve been so good to me, but
        I have to leave you,
          for I can’t give you
              anything...

  • II. I should be dying for a girl like you,
        I should fall in love and be true.
        Oh, I don’t know what I should do,
        I can’t explain it to you,
        It’s just that I’m still dreaming of my Summersun.

        I’m a selfish fool, lost in my dreams,
        I will never wake, so it seems...
        I hope I’ll be coming through,
        If I could fall in love like I used to do,
        I’d surely fall in love with you.

  • Ref: I’m sorry, you’ve been so good to me, but
        I have to leave you,
          for I can’t give you
              anything...

  • Int: I have tried to forget,
        what a wonderful dream I had
        of the sun, that never shone her light on me.
        I’ve been trying in vain,
        oh I’ve been dreaming again,
        even though I know so well:
            It will never be...

  • Ref: I’m sorry, helpless, I feel so heartless, oh:
        I have to leave you
          for I can’t give you
              anything...

           Can’t give you anything...

    Butter im Haar



    1.   Ich steh vor dem Spiegel, ich seh mein Gesicht,
    Ich merke sofort: Da stimmt etwas nicht.
    Es ist nicht mehr so, wie es gestern war
    Denn heute hab ich Butter im Haar.

    Ich saß beim Frühstück, da ging was daneben,
    Ich hab mich beschmiert, ja so ist das Leben.
    Daß ich beim Essen so ein Tolpatsch war,
    Ja, das ist der Grund für die Butter im Haar

    Butter im Haar, das ist doch verrückt!
    Butter im Haar, das ist es, was mich bedrückt.
    Nichts ist mehr so, wie es gestern noch war,
    Denn auf einmal hab ich Butter im Haar.
     
     
    2.   Mein Kopf ist so schwer, meine Zunge ist trocken,
    Hab die Nacht wohl verbracht mit Saufen und Zocken.
    Ich versuch’ mich zu erinnern, was gestern war,
    Doch ich denk’ immer nur an die Butter im Haar.

    Ich geh dann zur Arbeit, der Chef ist entsezt,
    Da hat wohl mal wieder ein Kollege gepetzt.
    Zu gern würd ich wissen, wer der Sauhund war,
    Denn der Chef steht überhaupt nicht auf Butter im Haar

    Butter im Haar, das ist doch verrückt!
    Von Butter im Haar war noch keiner entzückt.
    Du stehst morgens auf und denkst, alles ist klar
    Und auf einmal hast du Butter im Haar.
     
     
    Feierabend, ich geh inne Kneipe
    Auf daß ein paar Bierchen ich mir einverleibe.
    Der Wirt sieht mich an und sagt: "Du zahlst heut’ bar.
    Ich traue dir nicht, du hast Butter im Haar."

    Ich seh ein schönes Mädchen und ich denk mir: "Oh Mann!"
    Ich stell mich ihr vor und sie sieht mich an.
    Sie verzieht ihr Gesicht und sagt: "Na wunderbar.
    Verpiß dich, Kerl, du hast ja Butter im Haar!"

    Butter im Haar, das ist’s, was ich meine
    Butter im Haar ist der Grund, warum ich weine.
    Nichts ist mehr so, wie es früher mal war,
    Denn auf einmal hab ich Butter im Haar.
     
     
    4.   Das wird mir zu bunt, ich weiß was ich mache,
    Ich gehe zum Arzt und erklär ihm die Sache.
    Der sieht sich das an und sagt: "Der Fall ist klar,
    sie sind schwer krank, sie haben Butter im Haar."

    Schnell renn ich zur Apotheke hin,
    Auf das Rezept bekomm ich die Medizin:
    Ne Flasche Shampoo, ja wunderbar!
    Jetzt ist endlich Schluß mit der Butter im Haar.

    Die Moral von der Geschichte, die liegt auf der Hand,
    Ich habe die Wurzel allen Übels erkannt:
    Wenn nichts mehr so ist, wie es früher mal war,
    Sieh nach, vielleicht hast du Butter im Haar.

    Ode an ein Weizenmehlprodukt, das auf einer Sitzgelegenheit an einem Bahnsteig ein eher trauriges Dasein fristet



    1.   In einem Bahnhof liegt ein Brötchen auf der Bank.
    Es ist viertel von zwölf in der Nacht und es macht mich krank,
    Das Brötchen auf der Bank.
     
     
    2.   Armes Brötchen, wer hat Dich denn da vergessen?
    Du liegst da und keiner will Dich jetzt noch essen,
    Armes Brötchen auf der Bank.
     
     
    Int: Oh, so viele Brötchen finden einen Menschen, der sie ißt!
    Du tust mir leid, mein armes Brötchen, weil Du jetzt so einsam bist,
    Armes Brötchen...
    Liegst so einsam auf der Bank.
     
     
    3.   Der Zug fährt an und Du bleibst einsam liegen.
    Noch einmal winke ich Dir, und weiter gehts nach Siegen,
    Armes Brötchen auf der Bank,
    Ich wär so gern noch bei Dir geblieben.
    Armes Brötchen auf der Bank.

    Amok (Kleine Blaue Elefanten)



    1.   Ich will kleine blaue Elefanten töten,
    Tigerenten mit dem Fuß zertreten.
    Ich will gebatikte Hosen verbrennen,
    All die Tussen sollen um ihr Leben rennen!

    Hier kommt die Maus,
    Doch wenn die Katze kommt, dann ist es aus!
     
     
    2.   Will ihre Cola mit hartem Alk veredeln,
    Trommeln auf ihren hohlen Schädeln.
    Will mein Gebiß in ihre Hälse graben,
    An ihrem jungen Blut mich laben.

    Hier kommt die Maus,
    Doch wenn die Katze kommt, dann ist es aus!
    Dann ist es aus!
     
     
    Int:   Oh, warum blieb mir das bloß nicht erspart?
    Warum blieb mir das bloß nicht erspart?
     
     
    3.   Ich will Ernie und Bert die Hälse wringen,
    Schlümpfe im Ofen zum Schmelzen bringen.
    Diddlmäuse im Klo ertränken,
    Biene Maja das Genick verrenken.

    Hier kommt die Maus,
    Doch wenn die Katze kommt, dann ist es aus!
    Dann ist es aus!
    Dann ist es aus, dann ist es aus, endlich aus!
     
     
    Fin:   Langsam wirds zu viel für mich,
    Hilf mir, Freund, ich bitte dich:
    Halt mich fest, sonst werd ich Amok laufen,
    Meinen Doktor und auch mein Abi versaufen.
    Was machen diese Schnepfen hier?
    Was ham sie nur gemacht aus mir:

    Ich will kleine blaue Elefanten töten,
    Tigerenten mit dem Fuß zertreten.

    A Single Moment



    1.   Walking in the rain You an me just met again,
    the winter was bound to die.
    Warm and rainy wind was blowing o'er the land,
    my thoughts were racing like the clouds in the sky.
     
    The deepest shadows passing through on and on
    My heart was longing for the warm summer sun
     
     
    Ref.:   I almost turned to take Your hand...
    I almost turned to touch Your heart...
    A single moment oh so close we were together
    but centuries apart.
     
     
    2.   Heartaches of the spring, there's a new song I can sing,
    what's the answer to my questions at last?
    Do You feel the same or will You try to play a game?
    Will You just break my heart and leave it in the dust?
     
    The deepest shadows passing through on and on:
    Forever I'll be longing for the warm summer sun...
     
     
    Ref.    
     
    Int.:   A hundred moments like that, they won't change it anyway.

    or set me free!
    Say what You feel for me

    A Song of Tomatoes, Sugar & Elephant



    1.   I am walking through the forest in the evening
    and leaves are falling from the trees just like tears.
    Autumn rings the bell for the winter coming soon
    and I start looking back through the years:
     
    Straight from the heart I took my love, You see
    and I gave it all to You,
    fool that I am!
    Fool that I am!
     
    Oh, I wanted to be close to You,
    but You pushed me away.
    And so I had to go,
    fool that I am!
     
    Anger was a friend and made my heartache die.
    A new love came along and made my spirit fly.
    But sometimes I feel,
    sometimes I feel that I miss You:
     
     
    Ref.:   I miss You like tomatoes on my apple-pie, like sugar on my steak,
    like the birds miss the deepest ocean.
    I miss You like an elephant in my bed
    or like the rain that makes me wet,
    Oh! What a strange emotion...
     
     
    2.   I am walking down my road of life.
    My destination I don't know.
    But looking back through the past I have to shrug my shoulders,
    maybe that is just the way things had to go.
     
    But there is one thing I still can't understand:
    It's what You told me before
    You began to ignore
    The feelings that we had.
     
    Maybe a wish is so much stronger
    than the feelings in Your heart
    when You know what You want
    is what You really can get.
     
    Anger was a friend and made my heartache die.
    A new love came along and made my spirit fly.
    But sometimes I feel,
    sometimes I feel I still love You:

    Change it Again



    1.   Long time since I've left
    now I remember:
    Forgotten feelings are coming back again.
    Faded childhood dreams
    return in colours.
    My heart is open, yes I'm back again.
     
    But when I'm looking at the people running up and down,
    Their faces are gathered into one big frown.
     
    There's a little heart painted on the wall
    but no one cares.
    There's a little face telling "talk to me"
    But no one dares.
     
     
    Ref.:   Everything has changed,
    so change it again,
    turn back the time.
    Everything has changed,
    so change it again,
    turn back the time
    again...
     
     
    2.   Now the colours disappear,
    the curtain is falling.
    The childhood melodies go out of tune.
    The night is riding in,
    oh Lord, I'm freezing.
    I stand alone beneath the cold pale moon.
     
    I know that time will often take us where the cold winds blow,
    but what happened to this place I will never know.
     
    There's been a secret path leading through the copse,
    it's overgrown.
    Here I used to play with my childhood friends,
    now I'm on my own.

    Aschermittwoch



    1.   Nein, ich weiss nicht, was Du fühlst
    und ich kenne nicht Dein Ziel.
    Dunkele Wolken vor den Sternen:
    Ist das alles nur ein Spiel?
     
    Was ich sehe ist so wenig,
    doch Du sagst, da ist so viel.
    Du sagst Dein Bauch ist Dir im Weg,
    auch wenn Dein Herz es so sehr will.
     
     
    Ref.:   Warum zögerst Du?
    Warum zögerst Du?
    Kannst Du nicht versteh'n:
    Wenn es weh tut muss ich geh'n?
    Es ist schon fast gescheh'n...
     
    Sei doch einfach wer Du bist,
    aber sei es ohne mich.
    Wenn Du denkst, Du musst Dich ändern,
    Tu es einfach nur für Dich.
     
     
    2.   Meine Liebe trifft ins Leere,
    ich bin desillusioniert.
    Warum laufe ich Dir nach?
    Ich weiss genau wohin das führt.
     
    Wir sind keine guten Freunde
    und wir werden's auch nie sein,
    es sei denn, wir legen Freundschaft
    in die Liebe mit hinein.
     
     
    Ref.:    
     
    Int.:   Deine Küsse sind wie fest verschlossene Türen.
    So verschlossen wie Dein Herz.
    Ich kann die Schlösser nicht zerstören.
    Und was bleibt ist
    Schmerz.
     
     
    3.   Fühlst Du nicht was uns verbindet?
    Es ist Jahre her.
    Es ist niemals ganz verschwunden
    und die Zeit ist da für mehr.
     
    Willst Du lieben oder leiden,
    willst Du glücklich sein mit mir?
    Oder willst Du nur vergessen?
    Die Entscheidung liegt bei Dir.

    Deep Eyes



    1.   I sit here right before You
    face to face.
    My heart is beating faster now,
    it's running in a race.
     
    Oh I have always kept myself
    so high and free.
    I guess the time has come to wonder:
    Is this really me?
     
     
    Ref.:   I am melting in Your laughter.
    I am drowning in Your eyes.
    A taste of warm and distant summers.
    A glimpse of blue and distant skies.
     
     
    2.   We're talking about the weather,
    oh, it hurts.
    I wonder, can You read the meaning
    between my words?
     
    Time is running faster now,
    I need a break...
    To tell You what I feel for You,
    how long will it take?
     
     
    Ref.:    
     
    Int.:   No, I can't break through!
    No, I can't break through!
    You're not even playing a game,
    it's just nothing that You do.
     
    And suddenly I realize:
    That's the way You look at everyone.
    And I know that it will hurt too much
    to carry on...
     
     
    Ref.:   Now I'm dying in Your laughter.
    I am frozen in Your eyes.
    Far away from all them summers
    I am falling from the skies.
     
    Yeah, I'm falling from the skies.

    Healing Sun



    1.   I was sleeping
    deep as death
    In the arms of darkness, on a bed of snow.
     
    Coldest winter,
    frozen land,
    where no birds are singing, where no flowers grow.
     
    I woke up in a land where the sun is laughing from the sky.
    With the first breath in my chest I let out a mighty cry:
     
     
    Ref.:   Healing Sun, give Your heat to me!
    Healing Sun, in Your light I wanna be!
    I spread my arms and dance in circles!
    Healing Sun, I feel so free!
     
     
    2.   In the morning
    when I get up
    I rub my eyes and turn my face into the golden Sun.
     
    She leads and I will follow,
    east to north to west.
    I drink the light that keeps my blood and senses on the run.
     
    I can feel how she's melting down the winter deep inside.
    Yes, I'm singing with the birds, I'm crying out in full delight:
     
     
    Ref.:   Healing Sun, give Your heat to me!
    Healing Sun, in Your light I wanna be!
    I spread my arms and dance in circles!
    Healing Sun, I feel so free!
     
     
    Int. 1:   Here I find the melodies I've been missing.
    Here I find the words I wanna sing.
    I don't need no girl for easy kissing,
    all I need is my finger on the string.
     
     
    3.   In the evening
    when she goes down
    I see the wide horizon swallowing a crimson ball.
     
    The night is coming.
    It's getting dark.
    My body is cooling down but I don't wanna sleep at all.
     
    I still sit and sing my songs as the stars are shining bright.
    Inspiration is growing on in the excitement of the night.
     
     
    Ref.:   Brother Moon, give a smile to me!
    Brother Moon, in Your silver light I see
    that my world is just a part
    of god's great eternity.
     
     
    Int. 2:   Late at night the haze of sleep
    is falling down on me,
    but tomorrow one more time
    I'll be singing loud and free:
     
     
    Ref.:   Healing Sun, give Your heat to me!
    Healing Sun, in Your light I wanna be!
    I spread my arms and dance in circles!
    Healing Sun, I feel so free!
     
     
       So free!
    So free!

    Tower on the Hill



    1.   Little tower on the hill,
    once we stood there, gazing
    at the wonders of the world.
    Deep blue sky,
    the air as cold as ice.
    A crystal gleam in her eyes.
    Crystal feelings in my heart.
    At the tower on the hill.
     
     
    2.   Little tower on the hill,
    there's a border
    keeping the distance
    between my love and me.
    Like the wall of Berlin,
    a wall of heartache, a wall of pain.
    Oh, it hurts deep inside,
    I wanna die of love in vain,
    by the tower on the hill.
     
     
    3.   Little tower on the hill,
    I remember
    every moment
    I've been by her side.
    Deep blue heart,
    a feeling cold as ice.

    written in the stone
    at the tower on the hill.

    Shoo Away



    1.   Shoo shoo! Stay away from me!
    You're no longer welcome in my life!
    Shoo shoo! Who do You think I am?
    No longer I care.
     
    Shoo shoo! My love is the best I can give,
    But You don't deserve it.
    Shoo shoo! Get out of my way.
    We got nothing to share.
     
    You're always in action,
    no time for reflection,
    no chance to get closer.
    And Your heart is still beating
    for the one who is cheating.
    Still You won't, no You won't tell him: "No Sir!"
     
     
    Ref.:   So I'm breaking these chains of love in vain,
    turn my face to the sunlight.
    I'm getting away from You
    and that feels so f#!*ing right, yeah!
     
     
    2.   Shoo shoo! Tell me, why don't You change it,
    Even though You're always complaining?
    Shoo shoo! You always seek the cloudy skies
    And then You wonder it's raining.
     
    Shoo shoo! Stupid girl,
    You could have been the queen of my heart.
    Shoo shoo! But now I leave the stage
    for another, a brand new start.
     
    I got enough of them crying,
    no I won't be dying,
    I'll find someone better.
    Should You ever find
    that You have been blind,
    don't You worry, just write me a letter...
     
     
    Ref.:   Will You ever know what love is about,
    will You dance on a rainbow?
    Or will You leave Your heart
    where the lonely cold winds blow?
     
     
    Int.:   Shoo shoo! Stupid girl.
    Shoo shoo! Stupid girl.

    Different Eyes



    1.   When You look into the mirror
    I don't know what You see.
    But it must be someone different
    than who You seem to me.
    'cause when I tell You that You're beautiful
    You shake Your head and say:
    "Oh I don't like them compliments,
    for I know better anyway..."
     
     
    Ref.:   But I look at You with different eyes and
    I really have to say:
    You are wonderful, beautiful!
    It's taken my breath away.
    But You tell me I'm a liar,
    oh, shame on You!
    By the strings of my guitar
    I swear it's true.
     
     
    2.   Nothing can compare
    to the beauty of Your eyes.
    And there's not a single reason, girl,
    to say I'm telling lies!
    Your smile is like the morning sun,
    it brightens up my day.
    So turn to me and smile again
    And listen what I say:
     
     
    Ref.:   Yeah, I look at You with different eyes and
    I really have to say:
    You are wonderful, beautiful!
    It's taken my breath away.
    Don't You tell me I'm a liar,
    just believe it's true.
    And if I say You are beautiful
    someone else may think this, too.
     
     
    Int.:   Oh! Words are just words
    and so I wrote this song.
    So if You tell me once again, I'm a liar
    You will do me wrong!
    Take a look at Your reflection in my eyes, and You will see
    What a wonderful girl You are meant to be.
     
     
    3.   I may sing about Your beauty
    'till heaven meets the hell.
    But there are still so many things,
    so different things to tell:
    I beg You, please forgive me
    'cause I don't know where to start.
    So let me tell You what I like so well
    Is Your golden heart.
     
     
    Ref.:   Yeah, I look at You with different eyes,
    I wanna tell You every day:
    You are wonderful, beautiful!
    More than words can say.
    So forget about Your mirror,
    just break that stupid thing apart.
    For a mirror never shows Your golden heart.
    No, a mirror never shows Your golden heart.
     
     
    Kommentar: Wir werden alle älter. Und irgendwann kommt der Zeitpunkt, zu dem man erfährt, dass jemand, in den man früher einmal verliebt war, nicht mehr auf Erden weilt. Und selbst, wenn man von diesem Menschen in ferner Vergangenheit - so fern, dass es kaum noch wahr ist - enttäuscht wurde, so kann einem das doch auch nach Jahrzehnten noch sehr nahe gehen.

    The Painter



    Pre.:   (spoken:)
    The strangest of feelings
    through my dreams is creeping.
    And from far away
    I can hear a babyboy's weeping.
     
     
    1.   I dream of a painter
    on a wide open plain.
    He's painting his pictures
    on the walls in my brain.
    He's really a strange man
    but I know his face.
    And he's painting his pictures
    in the strangest of ways:
    He's holding the brush
    and my brain spins around him.
    He doesn't move,
    maybe a curse has bound him.
     
     
    Ref.:   He has my brother's face!
    My brother's face!
    Ooooh! My brother's face!
     
     
    2.   A maiden comes dancing
    all over the plain.
    And on her face I see
    sunshine and rain.
    I know her well.
    I know she's a friend.
    She's holding her little heart
    in the palm of her hand.
    Now she comes to the painter,
    I can see her bend.
    And her little red heart
    drops into his hand.
     
     
    Ref.:   Into my brother's hand!
    My brother's hand!
    Ooooh! My brother's hand!  
     
    3.   Now she's dancing away
    to a far away shore.
    A point on the horizon,
    now I can't see her no more.
    I know that she loves him,
    but he doesn't see.
    You stupid little painter,
    get out of me!
    I will dream of the babyboy.
    I'm sure that I will.
    'cause sometimes I think I can hear him
    weeping still.
    Oh, last night I saw the baby
    from a closer place.
    He was as strange as the painter and he...
     
    He had my brother's face.
     
     
    In Gedenken an Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec und den längst vergangenen Grund, warum mich seine Person einst beschäftigt hat.

    Pierrot



    1.   It's all over and gone.
    Time goes by and life still goes on.
    Oh, that passion I will never forget.
    I'm gonna miss what I never had.
    I got fooled one more time and now I know:
    I'm gonna be what I've always been -
    Pierrot.
     
     
    2.   Even in spite of Your secret that I knew
    I have opened - oh! - so many doors for You.
    But I had to close them again, I had to be strong
    to save myself from heartache and carry on.
    Oh, I can hear the women's laughter
    every time I have to go,
    they say: "You will always bee the same,
    but just before you go:
    Play another song for me,
    Pierrot!"
     
     
    3.   Another time, another game to play.
    The night is over, I see the break of day.
    Another love shines her light on me.
    This time I'll be lucky...probably...maybe...
    Oh I'm so afraid that time will show:
    I'm gonna be what I've always been -
    Pierrot.
     
    Oh, I can hear the women's laughter
    every time I have to go,

    The Scars Still Hurt Me



    1.   Why can't we fall into a dream?
    Why can't we reach the moon, sliding up every beam?
    You ask me: "Are you just pretending?
    We've only just begun - will it now be ending?"
     
    It's not that I'm just playing around with You.
    For sure I love You, yes I do!
    But - oh! - the shadows of the past, You see?
    I gave too much love never coming back to me.
     
     
    Ref.:   The scars still hurt me!
    The scars still hurt me!
    I need time to get by,
    but You are the one,
    You can help me to spread my wings and fly.
    No, my heart can't be restless forever.
    No, my heart can't be restless forever.
     
     
    2.   Help me, healer that You are!
    Lay Your tender hands on every single scar.
    I hope You're never just pretending.
    'cause if You do my pain will find no ending.
     
    I tell You, don't You play around with me.
    Show that You love me and I'll be free.
    No games of jealousy and no "kiss-and-run".
    Hold on to the love that has just begun.
