A Kind Of Love
Maggie was a girl, she was in love with Joe
One day he said to her: I don't really know
if you really love me, and she said no
He said: I hate you anyway and now I'm gonna go
And she said
Hatred, baby, is just another kind of love

Joe, he met the devil later on his way
And he heard him day: Hey Joe, why don't you stay
a little while with me, I'll give you what is good
But Joe, he goes: I hate you 'cause I think I should
And he heard
Hatred, Joey, is just another kind of love

Joe some days found he was getting old
He started to forget things he had been told
And to hate the world that went around so swinging
and the day he died he heard all the birds singing

Hatred, honey, is just another kind of love

So dont you tell somebody that you hate them in a way
And if somebody tells you don't believe it anyway
and if you come across some hate why don't you try to find
what love's got to do with it and what there is behind
'cause you know
Hatred, baby, is just another kind of love

Addicted To You
Sitting in the shadow of an old willow tree - all alone
there upon a meadow thinking of you and me - where you've gone
You had said you're gonna meet me in the morning
Sitting in the shadow of an old willow tree -
there upon a meadow, all the world full of glee
Waiting for you, but I guess you are leaving me - all alone.

Birds do fly over mountains and seas
Clouds are white - they are free like the breeze
In the morning, world awaking, there is sunlight and shade
in the morning, I am waiting, cause I think we had a date

and I'm addicted to you, I just can't help it
I'm addicted to you, won't let you go
I'm addicted to you, although I hate it
I'm addicted to you, and I guess you know

Words do fly and meanings don't cease
Vows comply with our need to be pleased
In a promise, hope is rising, growing colors that won't fade
It's a ribbon, it's disguising, it can be an open gate
and I'm addicted to you...

Sitting in the shadow of the old willow tree - don't know why
Spirits got to get low, what you said seems to be - lies, just lies
Don't believe you want to treat me like you're doing
Sitting in the shadow of the old willow tree
Stand me up again, so that I no longer see
if I want to trust you, but I know I'm not free - and I'll try.

Again
Feel a whisper in the sky
Hear the wild winds fly
See the mighty clouds cry
and time passing by

Feel the torrent in your mind
Hear the voice deep inside
See the memories far behind
and time passing by

And it's time to go on now
time to leave
Life it ain't meant for staying
it ain't made to have peace
it is time to go on now
time to flee
time to go anywhere again
time to go anywhere and then -
after a while

Feel a whisper in the sky
Hear zthe wild winds fly
See the mighty clouds cry
and time passing by

It is time to drop out now
time again to move
time to get soaked
life it just ain't waterproof
time to get started
time for something new
time to do anything new

And it's time to go on now
time to leave
Life it ain't meant for staying
it ain't made to have peace
it is time to go on now
time to flee
time to go anywhere again
time to go anywhere and then -
after a while

Feel a whisper in your mind
Hear the wild winds cry
See the memories unwind
and time passing by
time passing by

 
Alchemist's Blues
There is a potion to make a life good
what does it take, some fun - some food
But life itself is what you should
as well put in anyway
and here's what I say
it will be good

and then you'll need a few more things
the devil's memory and an angels wing
A poem's wisdom & your latest sin
Put in all kinds of mood
and it'll be as good
as it should

Give all that in an earthen pot
and add a wizard's spell
You got to drink it when it's hot
& use the wind to stir it well

Take water from a wishing well
light a fire of whatever you find
- it's up to you now -
A cauldron full of burning hell
and soothe it with your mind

Make sure you got a dragon's heart
a fairy's tale, an actor's part
Your lucky number and a gypsy's rune
and put alruna in
the color of your grin
and autumn moon

Some artificial sort of glue
All of your feelings that are true
You got to wear a magic ring
and add a rainy spring
an ancient word to sing
a newborn tune

Brew all that in an iron pot
and add a wizard's spell
You got to drink it when it's hot
and use a storm to stir it well

Take water from a wishing well
light a fire of whatever you find
A cauldron full of burning hell
and soothe it with your mind

 
All Around My Hat
All around my hat
I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat,
for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me
the reason why I'm wearing it
It's all for my true love
who's far far away

Faretheewell cold winter,
and faretheewell cold frost
Nothing have I gained,
but my own true love I've lost
I'll sing and I'll be merry
when occasion I do see
he's a false deluded young man,
let him go, farewell he

And all around my hat
I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat,
for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me
the reason why I'm wearing it
It's all for my true love
who's far far away

The other night he brought me
a fine diamond ring
But he thought to have deprived me
of a far better thing
But I being careful
like lovers ought to be
he's a false deluded young man,
let him go, farewell he

And all around my hat
I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat,
for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me
the reason why I'm wearing it
It's all for my true love
who's far far away

 
All Through Eternity
Once upon a time in a former life
I must have been a fisherman's wife
I remember the boat - I remember the load
One day he was gone and I was alone

five hundred years from now
I was floating in a boat on the deep blue sea
five hundred years from now
but that wasn't really me

Once upon a time I was a dragonfly
danced along a lake in the deep blue sky
Till the winter came and the snow fell down
I fell into the water, it was cold I got drowned

Five thousand years from now
I was floating on a wave into the deep blue sea
Five thousand years from now
but that wasn't really me
Once upon a time I was a fairy in a tree
my friends were a bird, a wolf, a hermit, and a bee
And the flowers all nodded their heads to me
when a storm came up and took me to the sea.

Five million years from now
I was floating on the wind over the dep blue sea
Five million years from now
but it wasn't really me

I've been so many things in so many times
had a lot of lives while a cat has only nine
In the next one I may be a star or its light
I might never find which one was really mine.

All through eternity
I'll be floating on the wind over the deep blue sea
All through eternity
I'll be floating on a wave on the deep blue sea
five hundred years from now
I'll be floating on the wind over the deep blue sea
Five thousand years from now
I'll be floating on a wave on the deep blue sea
Five million years from now
I'll be floating on a boat on the deep blue sea
All through eternity
I'll be floating on the wind over the deep blue sea
-
until I know it's me

 
Amazing Grace

 
An October Sunday
Another grey day passes
Rain washing away the nightmares
The air is fresh outside and cold
Heaven's tears clean up the ways for us
to go again

The trees are sighing softly
Winds blowing away the nightmares
The air is strong outside and tender
Hell is trying to warm up
life in vain

The fires whisper warmth
Gleams burning away the nightmares
Smoke curling up outside so spicey
Dancing shapes are celebrating spite

Auf Dem Berge Da Wehet Der Wind
Auf dem Berge da wehet der Wind
da wiegt die Maria ihr Kind
Sie wiegt es mit ihrer schneeweißen Hand
und braucht dazu kein Wiegenband

Ach Josef, liebster Josef mein
ach hilf mir doch wiegen mein Kindelein

Wie soll ich dir denn dein Kindlein wiegen,
ich kann ja kaum selber die Finger biegen

Schum - schei

 
Auf Und Ab
Bist du mal down - kein Ziel zu sehn
Wohin man schaut - kein Weg zu gehen
Sag dir: es ist nie eben
Kein Berg kann ohne Tal da stehn
Es geht weiter im Leben
Auf oder ab oder im Kreis kann man sich drehn

Schatten und Licht gehen Hand in Hand
Meere gb's nicht ohne das Land
Liebe ist nur ein Wort
misst du nicht deinen Hass daran
und gedanken ein Ort
von wo man fallen oder fliegen kann

Und nach jedem Sommer kommt immer auch die Winterzeit
Nach jedem Regen kommt immer auch der Sonnenschein
nach einem Sommer muss mal Winter kommen
Nach jedem Regen scheint wieder die Sonne
Und wenn man mal unten ist geht es, wenn es geht, nur bergauf

Back (without band)
Watch the moon fly
White clouds pass by
Watch the flowers grow
They die in winter in the snow

And then again I want to be
back in a world I tried to flee
And then again I want to be
back where I failed to find some glee

Sing a song
With the river's song
There's nothing I belong
to and I know that sure is wrong

And then again I want to be
back in a world that's not for me
And then again I want to be
back in a world that's hating me
And then again I want to be
back in a world I had to flee

Think of you
What you'd do
How things have changed
and you've become so strage

And then again I want to be
back in a world I tried to flee
And then again I want to be
back where I failed to find some glee
And then again I want to be
back in a world that's not for me
And then again I want to be
back in a world that's hating me
And then again I want to be
back in a world I had to flee

 
Banal Song
Want to be your lady, like I used to be
And I hope maybe we're gonna meet
You're gone and I'm only longing and lonely

I'm missing you
You're just a handsome guy I know
Walking with you was a show
What you've been doing
I don't want to know

And I can't live without your love any more.

Want to be your lady, be it again
And I hope maybe we're still friends
But now I fell only Low and lonely

I am missing you

If you have time, come over now
I want to see you anyhow
I have been missing you so much
I long to hear you, to feel your touch

And I can't live without your love any more

Be My Baby
Some folks live diamonds,
some love stone
Some don't feel bad
when they're alone
I don't want diamonds
Don't care about stone
and I don't love being alone
Why don't you stay
for a while or a day
and be my Baby...

Some build on concrete,
some on sand
Some never need
a helping hand
I build on nothing
Don't care about home
But there are times
I want a friend
So
Why don't you stay
for a while or a day
and be my Baby ...

 
Birthday Present
Someone offers you a life
And says: I won't tell you how long it'll be

It may be as long as a hundred years
It may be as short as an hour.

There are things we got no words for
Some things don't fit in a word


You ask him: What is life?
He says: It ain't time.

You ask how much it is
And he disappears.

There are things we got no words for
Some things don't fit in a word

 
Blue Bell
When the bluebells start ringing
you can hear the elves singing
and they ring in a spring
that is new

When you hear them in fall
it is winter they call
and they ring in their end
and sound blue.

Blue little bell
ring and tell
me the tales
about life and ist gales

Blue little bell
ring and tell
me the tales
of heavens and hells

Well, the seasons go by
We might stay for a while
till the bells tell you why
I leave you

But you don't ever listen
you don't ever know
All the messages gone,
but still true

You don'thear them, you'l feel
what they rang must come real
they don't care what you think
or don't do.

 
Burn
Life is a spark in a blazing fire
fuelled by time and desire
Whirled about by winds of fate
bound to vanish in the shade

Life won't make the world turn
But love will make you burn

Life is a symphony, a song
you're but a single note, not long.
Give it respect to make it strong,
it is fragile, don't play it wrong

Life will make you learn
And love will make you yearn

Life is a fantastillion scenes
an endless play of facts and dreams
Time has donated you a part
it may be tiny, but it's yours, so play it smart

Life once took what I had owned
Then it left me standing there alone
So what is yours what is home
What's the deal if you go

Life won't make the world turn
But love will make you burn
Life will make you learn
And love will make you yearn

Life can show you things
worth more than gold or diamond rings
Life needs trust, it wants truth
And it wants to be friends with you

Life won't make the world turn
But love will make you burn
Life will make you learn
And love will make you yearn
Life won't do what you want
But it's all right, you'll get along
Life won't make the world turn
But love will make you burn .....

Come By The Hills
Come by the hills to the land where fancy is free.
Stand where the peaks meet the sky and the loughs meet the sea,
Where the rivers run clear and the bracken is gold in the sun;
And cares of tomorrow must wait till this day is done.

Come by the hills to the land where life is a song.
stand while the birds fill the air with their joy all day long,
Where the trees sway in time and even the wind sings in tune
And cares of tomorrow must wait till this day is done.

Come by the hills to the land where legend remains.
And the stories of old fill the heart and may yet come again,
Where the past has been lost and the future is still to be won;
And cares of tomorrow must wait till this day is done.

Come by the hills to the land where fancy is free.
Stand where the peaks meet the sky and the loughs reach the sea,
Where rivers run clear and the bracken is gold in the sun;
And cares of tomorrow must wait till this day is done.

 
Cradle Blues
What'll come, it'll come
What'll go, it'll go
What'll end, it'll end
What you learn, you will know
What you sow, it'll grow
What'll be, it'll be
But tonight you just sleep
go to sleep

if tomorrow's a challenge
if tomorrow is great
if tomorrow brings sorrow
don't worry today
tomorrow is coming
for sure, you will see
but tonight you can sleep
deep sleep

if you jump over limits
if you drown or stand proud
if you meet friends or trouble
today it won't count
the future is coming
bringing what we can't see
but tonight you can sleep
deep sleep

 
Cry Me A River
Now you say you're lonely
You cry the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now you say you're sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember, all that you said
You told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and

Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove that you do
Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Dance Of The Last Leaf In Fall
Dance like a leaf that is falling -
- flying

Dance like a leaf that is falling -
- dance like a leaf

See the dance of the last leal in fall - falling
See the dance of the last ieaf in fall - flying
See the dance of the last leaf in fall

Don't turn around, don't turn me down
Don't just drop me like a leaf in the alley

Don't turn around, don't turn me down
Don't just drop me like a leaf in the street
I will fly away

Dance like a leaf that is falling
See the dance of the last leaf in fall

Don't turn around, don't turn me down
Don't just drop me like a leaf in the alley
Don't turn around, don't turn me down

Don't just drop me like a leaf in the street
I will fly away

If you drop me like a tree a leaf I will fly away

 
Danny Boy
Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow

'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

Day Dream Bandversion
When you see me doing nothing I am not wasting time
When you see me doing I might be feeling fine
Cause I am where I want, lost in my mind
Have you ever tried a day dream, try and see what you find.

There are people who are busy trying to catch a bit of time
But this way they won't grasp it, and they don't see the sun shine
Life is not just outside, it takes place in your mind
Have you ever tried a day dream, try and see what you find.

Don't say it's good for nothing if you're able to dream
Don't say its not true, just because it's not real
Time passes anyway, if you feel it or not,
Watch out, it'll grab the things you think you have got

When you're low and don't know if there is freedom of a kind
When you cannot relax and you fear what's behind
Looking so hard for something that can ease your mind
Have you ever tried a day dream, try and see what you find.

There are times when I'm lost in a day dream

Death And Life Are One
Your dreams are made of glass
They're fragile like a Cristmas-tree ball
and when you ever ask
if this is really all
there's to it
I think you knew it's going

Down, down, it is going down
breathe, freeze, it's a cold, cold breeze
Round, round, only turning round
Run, run, death and life are one.

Your wishes are of smoke
they vanish high in the air
and when you ever hope
that something was really there
It's gonna fool you
gonna cool you - going

Down, down, it is going down
breathe, freeze, it's a cold, cold breeze
Round, round, only turning round
Run, run, death and life are one.


Daylight and nighttime
Moonrise, wind is white, and shadows fly
But we are ground bound
and it takes power to die

Ocean waves and quiet lakes
Rainy days and ways that end -
in vanished lands
a beach of sand
we're ground bound

Run, run, death and life are one

 
Death Of A Dream
Well, the world ain't shattered,
but sure it ain't safe
All the winds are alert,
You just got to be brave
There are hate and suspicion
And maybe better ways
Is it faith or superstition
what it takes to be amazed?

One dream's killed,
but another was born,
and the devil a-dancin,
Gabriel blowing his horn
and the world keeps turning,
and the prophets don't care,
Which value is burning,
or if a man's bare.

All the fairies are hidden
in their flowers in spring
and if you ask Merlina
she won't tell you anything
all the drops in the ocean,
they are sad and they cry.
But the Lords of the darkness,
they enjoy their apple pie.

Your houses are high,
your falls are deep
your cars are fast,
but the bridges too steep
Good days tend to leave,
yet the beast is asleep
and the hope in the party
is powered by greed.

You try anything,
and you got luck.
You got everything,
and now you got stuck.
and the rails of your brain
don't lead far any more.
and your feelings are sold,
and your heart is a whore.

A room full of vigilance,
a stock full of fears,
and a little box of knowledge
and wisdom full of tears.
and the times aren't right
for paradise birds
each idea got his bride
and some got more than they deserve.

All the mermaids in the waves
they dive and they sink
the sirens stop singing
and the magic dragons shrink.
and the love and the promises
are laughing in the sky
and a little dog's howling
at the stars passing by.

and your heart is a whore.

A room full of vigilance,
a stock full of fears,
and a little box of knowledge
and wisdom full of tears.
and the times aren't right
for paradise birds
each idea got his bride
and some got more than they deserve.

All the mermaids in the waves
they dive and they sink
the sirens stop singing
and the magic dragons shrink.
and the love and the promises
are laughing in the sky
and a little dog's howling
at the stars passing by.

 
Differences
There was a palmist laying cards upon the air
and then a storm breathed deep and blew them out nowhere
A box was spilling emptiness around the heated room
A lamp was shining blue and dim and throwing round ist gloom

Some things are leaving and some others, they must stay
How can you know what's going to happen today
Some folks must be here and some others got to go
You never know ....

You think you found someone and the next day he'll be gone
and then again you start to run and feel alone
Nothing's gonna work out well if you need somebody else
Some might be alright, but some should go to hell.

Some folks are leaving and some folks must stay
How can you know what will happen today?
Some got to be here, and some others got to go
You never know ...

Some kids are born into a world of joy and wealth
and there are others who lack toys, and even health
How can you tell them why they don't have what they need
and others die because they have too much to eat

Some folks got all the luck and some folks never live
and fortune scatters seeds, it doesn't plan to give.
it's up to fate what kind of ground you fell upon,
if your hands clutch dirt or love or a silver spoon, II: if you lost or won

There was a war in a country not so far
and the people, they were scared of this ugly, dirty war
Some of them were dying, and some others, they were saved
and for some there was a future and for some there was just hate

Some folks are leaving and some folks must stay
How can you know what's going to happen the next day?
Some got to be there and some others got to go
You never know .....

 
Don't Care Why
I had seen you deep in my dream
Can't forget what I have seen
Can't stop waiting that we're going to meet
You were a vision, maybe deceit

How can I ger there, how can I try
I think I will travel high on my sigh
Want to be with you, I want to fly
You touched my soul, and I don't care why

Some kind of magic smile in your eyes
the age you are from maybe ancient and wise
I'm caught in your net like a fish in the sea
mystery spell that you've put on me

I want to float far into that dream
visions aren't always what they first seem
power of mind, here's what I find
giving me time to leave all things behind

 
Down By The Lake
Down by the lake
in the woods
I met my love
down by the water

Down by the lake
in the sunshine
we were happy
down by the water

Once it was raining
he said goodbye
in our little hut
down by the water

I can't weep now
I can't feel
Just remember dreams
sitting down by the water

See them float
See them drown
See the sun set
and dark, broad water.

 
Down By The Sally Gardens
Down by the Sally Gardens, my love and I did meet. She crossed the Sally Gardens, with little snow-white feet. She bid me to take life easy, as the leaves grow on the tree, But I was young and foolish, with her I did not agree. In a field down by the river, my love and I did stand Upon my leaning shoulder, she laid her snow-white hand. She bid me to take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs, But I was young and foolish, and now I am full of tears.
 
Downtown
It was Indian summer in the city around
The air warm and fresh, and full of sounds
I just went for a walk in the park downtown
There's lake and a bar and some ants on the ground

I went down, down, down - down downtown
I went down, down, down - down to relax
I went down, down, down - down downtown
I went down, & found - I was behexed

By the lake was an elf between the huge willow trees
He was riding a dragonfly to fish in the streams
But there was no fish, no thing to be seen
& the light of his eyes, it was flickering green

His eyes were a-glaze, his face was a maze,
& his grief, it was hard to believe
He had caught only fear, the water was clear
What he said, I could hardly hear

He'd been trying to fish for love and faith
and respect and hope and a wish
for peace and good days, for joy and fun,
but those fish had gone, there were none

The elf calmly said with a tear in his eye
This lake must have been poisoned, it is sure gonna die
Looking puzzled, he vanished without saying goodbye
& dusk slowly fell with the moon passing by

I went down, down, down - down downtown

I went down, down, down - to enjoy the light
I went down, down, down - & found just night
I went down, down, down - down to laze
I went down, down, down - & found just haze

I went down, down, down - to sit in the sun
I went down and found - it wasn't really fun
I went down to breathe - late summer air
I went down, down, down - & now I feel scared

 
Dream
Dream, dream
dream, dream
dream the world you need

Dream, dream
dream, dream
go to life in sleep

the day is going somewhere else
the light is fading fast
the silence calms the world to sleep
pretending peace can last

Dream, dream
dream, dream
dream the world you want

Dream, dream
dream, dream
go to your favourite haunt

The night is coming, rules this place
the shadows hide in shades
The less you see, the more you feel
the dark and different ways

Dream, dream
dream, dream
dream a world that's nice

Dream, dream
dream, dream
go to paradise

Dream, dream

Dreamland
Oh, Dreamland, you lovely, you wonderful land,
you beautiful crown of all the lands and realms
And if I ever find I am in the Promised land,
I'd try to return to your magic elms
It's there I want to live, it's there you never die.
It's where the things are made and where new ideas are born
It's just the way you want, it is Paradise

It's there I want to live, it's there you never die.
It is where things are made and where new ideas are born
It's just the way you want, it is Paradise

Oh Dreamland, you mystical, neverending land
You rule what is real, with a subtle force.
Your trees and birds and mountains are always there at hand
Of peace, hope, and wisdom, you can be the source.
Your forests are the deepest, your sun burns hot or mild
Your strength is so unfailing, my wishing well, my mead
Your spirit rest and longing, it creates new life

Your oceans are the deepest, your creatures tame or wild
Providing me with power and just everything I need
Your time is a river that creates new life

Every Night When The Sun Goes In
Every night when the sun goes in
Every night when the sun goes in
Every night when the sun goes in
I hang down my head, and mournful cry.

True love don’t weep, true love don’t mourn,
True love don’t weep, true love don’t mourn,
True love don’t weep, nor mourn for me,
I’m going away to Marble Town.

I wish to the Lord that train would come,
I wish to the Lord that train would come,
I wish to the Lord that train would come,
to take me back where I come from.

It’s once my apron’s hung down low,
He’ll follow me through sleet and snow.
It’s now my apron’s to my chin
He’ll face my door, but won’t come in.

O how I wish my babe was born
sitting on his daddy's knee
and me, poor girl, was dead and gone
with the green grass growing over me

True love don’t weep, true love don’t mourn,
True love don’t weep, true love don’t mourn,
True love don’t weep, nor mourn for me,
I’m going away to Marble Town.

Fairy Tales In A Christmassy Shop-Window
I went down to the city - saw the people in the crowd
Illuminations so pretty, and the traffic so loud
Christmas is coming, and the folks are running
They're spending money to buy peace for just one day
It is cold in the air, and cold in their eyes
Maybe they are tired, some dissatisfied
Look into their faces, see no truth, see no lies
not the creatures in the window from a world which they deny.

and then I remember the days when I was a child
Winter rolling round slowly, snowflakes dancing wild
Smell of cookies in the kitchen, peace over the fields
In the homes to the candlelight frost had to yield
and the flute music mellow and the fires burning yellow
There was time for stories and passion and song,
Time that for good seems to have gone

and then you step into a fancy fairyland
Where silky flowers on the windowsills wave hello with their heads and hands
and the old houses smile at you with their framework eyes bent
Where a silly ugly dwarf courts a pretty young princess
and where evil is fought bravely till it falls in a well
and where stories of old are chirped by green finches
and you feel with those figures, feel the truth that they tell

and the tune of the Pied Piper is calling you aside
and you follow a miracle, in your heart you're a child
Not aware of a spell broken only ouside
There is something about it - it has got to do
with Cristmas time anyway, who dares say it ain't true
All tales may be right and are righteous and wise
and all things exist in this world, even lies.

 
Fake It
Reality is not for you
Dream on, your dream may then come true
and ask it what you are to do
when timelessness comes by

The addicts always got their aim
The priests have gods with lots of names
But limits cannot be the same
when freedom limits life

Your lady with her lifted face,
Her love is second-hand,
no longer knows what to ebrace
She wants a plastic man

It's speed you take for quality
and stress is your success
and gaude screams out convincingly
while silence rests in death

The blackberries, they shouldn't grow
thorns in your concrete house, I know
You loved them in your pudding though-
delicious, clean, and small

Words used to be demons' villages
But empty homes decay like privileges
and to fill just a shape with images
means life to ruined walls

Eternity has become short
It lasts a movie-scene
The universe was made to fit
upon a TV-screen

They kill someone, they fight for fun
and they conserve the bore
and everything's become a deal,
and happiness a whore.

Fall
It's fall - waiting for winter
Storms are sweeping away the relics of summer
The leaves are dancing when they die
It's fall - summer's dying
Winds are wailing, the trees are sighing.

It's fall - nights are cold
There should be some body to warm me up
Rain on the blanket where I lie
It's fall - summer's dying
Winds are wailing, the trees are sighing.

It's fall - & I shiver
But the colors are warm, trying to cheat me
The leaves look pleasant, they can't cry
It's fall - summer's dying
Winds are wailing, the trees are sighing.

It's fall - watching the rain
there's mud on the ground, sun gleams through mist
Dream by the fire, warm & dry
It's fall - summer's dying
Winds are wailing, the trees are sighing.

 
Fall And Rise
FALL and RISE

Fall and rise - fall and rise
At night the sun falls in the sea
And the night falls down on me
and the world falls into sleep
something's rising in a dream

Some things rise when others fall
There's no time to have them all
What is leaving, who will call
What is rising from this fall?

In fall the leaves fall off the trees
And cold rain falls down on me
Then snow falls on the mistletoe
And icy fog hides what I know
Watch it move and watch it go
Something's rising and will grow

Some things rise when others fall
There's no time to have them all
What is leaving, who will call
What is rising from this fall?

All life must fall in time
Something's rising in my mind
The world is falling, I stay here
I feel it somehow disappear
It is a show, it's no more real
It won't touch me, that's the deal
And everything's away some day
Something's rising, anyway.

Some things rise when others fall
There's no time to have them all
What is leaving, who will call
What is rising from this fall?
Something's rising

Fall and rise - fall and rise

 
False Hearted Lover
I once loved a maid
And I loved her so well
that I hated all others who spoke of her ill
But now she's rewarded me well for my pains
For she's gone to be wed to another

When I saw my love to the church go
with her bride-maidens she had a fine show
And I followed on with my heart full of woe
To see my love wed to another

Then I saw my love
sit down to dine
Isat down beside her
and poured out her wine
And I drank to the girl
that should have been mine
But she was now wed to another

The boys of the forest they ask it of me
how many strawberries grow round the salt sea
And I ask it them back with a tear in my eye
How many ships sail the forest

Go dig me a grave
I let you dig it so deep
And cover it over with flowers so sweet
And close my poor eyelids forever in sleep
And maybe in death I'll forget her

 
Fantasy
Was ist wahr und was ist Traum
Gibt es mehr als Zeit und Raum
Weit du dass du viel mehr siehst
Wenn du mal die Augen schliet?

Was liegt nah und was scheint weit
Gibt es mehr als Raum und Zeit
In der Stille hrt man mehr
als all den Lrm so ringsumher

Alles ist so wie du denkst, wie du willst,
wie du kannst, wie du's machst, in dir drin

Willst du was dann denk dir das
dann denk dir zwei dann sind's schon drei
Wie es wird, du hast die Wahl
Was man sich vorstellt ist real
Was von allein nicht werden kann
denk's aus, es fngt zu leben an

Fantasy Fair
Are you going to fantasy fair
Dreams, ideas, wishes, identities, time
Remember me to one who lives there
For he once was a true love of mine

Tell him to build me a castle of thoughts
Dreams, ideas, wishes, identities, time
with lamps made of wisdom and shelves made of hopes
And then he'll be a true love of mine

Tell him to fill it with creatures of peace
Dreams, ideas, wishes, identities, time
And with carpets woven of old memories
And then he'll be a true love of mine

Tell him to paint it in colors of love
Dreams, ideas, wishes, identities, time
a banner of lyrics waving above
And then he'll be a true love of mine

O, will you find me a magical land
Dreams, ideas, wishes, identities, time
Where nothing's forgotten and things never end
Or never be a true love of mine

O, will you make it a festival place
Dreams, ideas, wishes, identities, time
And invite those we want and those we create
Or never be a true love of mine

And when you have done and finished your work
Dreams, ideas, wishes, identities, time
Then come to me and say the right word
And you shall be a true love of mine.

 
Fantasy Fair (deutsche Version)
Geh auf den Jahrmarkt Fantasy Fair
Träume, Wünsche, Ideen, Erkenntnis und Schein
und finde den einen, ich vermisse ihn so sehr
er war in einem anderen Leben mal mein

Bau'n soll er mir aus Gedanken ein Schloss
Träume, Wünsche, Ideen, Erkenntnisse, Schein
Lampen aus Weisheit, Regale aus Trost - Tore aus Wissen und Mauern aus Trotz
Dann kann er immer ein Freund von mir sein

Die Geister des Friedens solln darin leben
Träume, Wünsche, Ideen, Erkenntnisse, Schein
den Teppich soll er aus Hoffnung und Erinnerungen weben
Sonst kann er nie wieder ein Freund von mir sein

Der Graben voll Zweifel, die Brücke aus Vertrauen
Träume, Wünsche, Ideen, Erkenntnisse, Schein
Ein Wunschbrunnen im Garten, was man braucht, wächst am Baum
Sonst kann er nie mehr ein Freund von mir sein

In Farben der Liebe soll er streichen den Turm
Träume, Wünsche, Ideen, Erkenntnisse, Schein
und hissen eine Flagge mit Lyrik drauf, im Sturm
und dann kann er wieder ein Freund von mir sein


Finde dafür nun ein magisches Land
Träume, Wünsche, Ideen, Erkenntnisse, Schein
wo niemals was endet, aber alles fängt an
Oder du kannst nie ein Freund von mir sein

Finde die Quelle, Emotion heißt der Fluss
Träume, Wünsche, Ideen, Erkenntnisse, Schein
Mit Wasser aus Zeit, der verschlingt was man nicht muss
Sonst kannst du niemals ein Freund von mir sein.

Gib da ein Fest, denk dir aus, wer da sei
Träume, Wünsche, Ideen, Erkenntnisse, Schein
Lad sie ein und wer immer du willst ist dabei
Dann kannst du wieder ein Freund von mir sein.

Bist du dann fertig und es gibt diesen Ort
Träume, Wünsche, Ideen, Erkenntnis und Schein
Dann komm zu mir und sprich das richtige Wort
Dann sollst du für immer ein Freund von mir sein.

Far Away
There's a light in the distance
not easy to see
faint, but yet sparkling
trying to shine on me

But I'm still wondering
how to get by
There ain't no way to tread
and I got no wings to fly


Who knows how to get there
who knows the way
Who can travel on time
and jump over days

And is there a chance
to make it anyway
It might just be a promise
it's too far away


There's a soul in the distance
not easy to find
hidden but alive
trying to touch my mind

But I'm still wondering
how to make my light shine
I sense someone's somewhere
who should have been mine

 
Finde Ruh
Kaltes Licht - scheint auf mein Gesicht
Deine Stimme tröstet nicht
Alles fort was einmal war
Und doch war es nie so wahr.

Was ist wichtig, was macht Sinn?
Wo bist du wo ich nicht bin?
Zukunft ist Vergangenheit
Und der Weg allein zu weit.

Zauber aus der Unterwelt
der mein Herz gefangen hält
Bann, der macht, dass nichts mehr geht,
die Welt, wie du, sich nicht mehr fortbewegt.

Alles endet, was beginnt
Schauder durch die Seele rinnt
Ohnmacht brandet gegen Haut
Leere Welt und dunkler Mond wohin man schaut.

Was auch immer du noch willst
Wie auch immer du dich fhlst
Paradies ist Zeit, die steht.
Und die Schatten flüstern leis: "Zu spät..."

Hör' nicht zu - Finde Ruh -

 
Fly Away Soloversion
Never had a ruby or a diamond ring
But Baby, I can sing

Never had a pocket full of money on me
But Baby; I am free

Never saw a genie in a bottle of gin
But Baby, I can dream

Never been a winner, often missed a chance But Baby, I can dance

And I can fly, fly away

 
Fly, Time (without band)
I remember there was a garden
and a place for love to be
I remember a time without worries
Good and evil could meet in peace.
Life bid me: Take me easy!
I'll grow for you whatever you need
But I was young and foolish
and all these things meant nothing to me

Fly, time, fly
passing me by or taking me high
leave me behind, it'll all be all right
with no way and no schedule
and no reason why
Fly, time, fly

In a field down by the river
my love and I did stand
and on my yearning shoulder
moonlight laid ist cold white hand
Love bid me: Take me easy!
cause the world knows more than me
But I was young and foolish
with nothing I would agree

Now weeds grow in the garden
and love still haunts my brain
I'm older but not wiser
I'd do the same again
The world says: Take me easy!
but the wind is full of tears
You must remain young and foolish
or it all might disappear

Follow Me Up To Carlow
Lift Mac Cahir Og your face,
Brooding o'er the old disgrace
That black Fitzwilliam stormed your place,
Drove you to the fern.
Grey said victory was sure,
Soon the firebrand he'd secure,
Until he met at Glenmalure
With Fiach MacHugh O'Byrne.

See the swords at Glen Imaal
They flash all over the English Pale
See all the children of the Gael
Beneath O'Byrne's banners.
Rooster of a fighting stock
Would you let a Saxon cock
Crow out upon an Irish rock?
Fly up and teach him manners.

From Tassagart to Clonmore
There flows a stream of Saxon gore.
Well great is Rory Og O More
At sending the loons to Hades.
White is sick, Grey is fled;
Now for black Fitzwilliam's head.
We'll send it over dripping red
To Liza and her ladies.

Curse and swear, Lord Kildare.
Fiach will do, what Fiach will dare.
Now Fitzwilliam, have a care,
Fallen is your star low.
Up with halberd, up the sword,
On we'll go for, by the Lord,
Fiach MacHugh has given the word;
Follow me up to Carlow.

 
Four Little Mice
I was just gonna get me something to eat
I knew the fridge was full of cheese and rolls and meat
But when I opened it just guess what I could see and hear
Four little mice were dancing around the beer
They saw me standing there and stared at me
and asked me what the hell that was supposed to be
and started laughing

Ha ha ha ha ha .................

Four little mice were dancing in my fridge
One of them could talk, he said his name was Mitch
He was so cute and shy and had black button eyes
And he could not understand why I was so surprised
They saw me standing there and looked at me
And told me there was nothing left to eat
and started laughing

Ha ha ha ha ha .................

Four little mice are dancing in my fridge
Their names are Jeff and John and Miles and Mitch
I fell in love with them and keep them there for fun
And in my fridge I know a party's going on
When I open it they dance for me
And I don't care what that's supposed to be
and I start laughing

Ha ha ha ha ha .................

 
Frieden
Gib uns den Frieden am Ende der Zeit
Mach den Himmel und die Erde bereit
Lang ist der Weg in die Ewigkeit
Niemand versteht's, doch die Welt weiß Bescheid

Bald ist der Himmel nicht mehr so blau
Und die Sonne hört auf zu scheinen
Dunkel der Mond und der Wald nur grau
Und es regnet nie mehr, es gibt keinen.

Frieden ist dort, wo der Atem der Welt
so als Wind in den Bäumen den Vögeln gefällt
Sing mir ein Schlaflied zur ewigen Ruh
Kleiner Vogel, du weißt es nicht, ich hör dir zu.

Die Zweige und Blätter im Abendlicht
sind ein Lächeln, das ewige Liebe verspricht
Sie raunen: Die Welt, sie kann ohne uns sein
Doch sie lässt uns auch nie allein.

Die Dunkelheit nimmt dich in ihren Arm
ganz ohne Grimm und ganz leise
Sie zeigt dir die Sterne, sie kennt keinen Harm
und alles macht Sinn und scheint weise.

Gib uns den Frieden am Ende der Zeit
Mach den Himmel und die Erde bereit
Lang ist der Weg in die Ewigkeit
Niemand versteht's, doch die Welt weiß Bescheid

 
Full Moon
Riding down the road with the full moon right in front
Seems to be so close, there is nothing more I want
Riding down the road at night with the city lights all burning
and I feel terrific and I feel I'm living and I feel the world is turning

Silence sometimes says a lot more than just a word
telling open secrets, they're easy to be heard
Riding doen the road at night with a new desire burning
And I find what's hidden and I find new riddles and I'm always learning

With the lights and the sounds low
Perception beginning to grow
details and shades within sight
Everything turns out right


I don't feel alone, there are people on the way
they need room for restlessness 'cause they don't want to stay
Riding down the raos at night and in my heart a burning
Moving along getting further on, I am driven by yearning

Settling things by compromise can't satisfy my needs
there are roads to travel on where no discussion leads
Riding down on one of these with the glow of freedom burning
And I know no guide and I know I'm right and I know what I'm discerning

What have you got that Iack
I'm able to turn my back
I ain't got what I don't need
happiness lies in the street


Riding down the road with the full moon right in front
Seems to be so close, there is nothing more I want
Riding down the road at night with the city lights all burning
And I feel terrific and I feel I'm living and I feel the world is turning

Good Times
May all the Gods watch you
in the night
May the creatures of darkness
soothe your mind
May all your dreams be happy
and filed with light
and bring you memories
of the good times
that you might never know
And you find out
what it's all about
Find out
what it's all about
in a dream

May all the elves of summer
warm your soul
May you hear the rustling leaves
whisper promises of peace
May the world provide the trust you need
to grow old
and bring you visions
of the good times
that you might some day know
And you find out
what it's all about
in a dream

May you have good times
just good times
anywhere you go
And you find out
what it's all about
Find out
what it's all about
Find out
what it's all about
in a dream

 
Good To Be Tough
There's so much uneasiness
and tension in the air
Nobody gets enough
Nobody cares

Noone is satisfied
They want more
for some their God's called money
and success their holy whore

Their value exploitation
destruction on the way
greed the motor, power the aim,
the earth will lose this frayv
Too many rock the boat
Life is getting rough
in times like these
it's good to be tough

There's a lot of agression
and war is everywhere
The time's getting rough
Nobody cares

Their value boundless avarice
recklessness the way
they sacrifice creation
noone can win this fray

Dancing on the edge
of an abyss trhat swallows all
consume the ground and get sucked in
and end in endless fall

 
Good To Feel Bad
Save up the shadows from a lonely night
For a day when the sun is shining hot and too bright
Save up the shadows from a lonely night

Sometimes it can be good to feel bad

Save up the shadows from a lonely night
For a day when the sun is shining hot and too bright

In a strange kind of life
tears don't have to dry
they come streaming
& their meaning
makes you smile

And I say
Save up the shadows from a lonely night
For a day when the sun is shining hot and too bright

What good is happiness and nothing more
What is it when there ain't a thing to long or crave for
What good is happiness - can be a bore

Sometimes it can be bad to feel good

Save up the shadows from a lonely night
For a day when the sun is shining hot and too bright

In a strange kind of life
tears don't have to dry
they come streaming
& their meaning
makes you smile

It's good to feel bad

 
Greensleeves
Alas, my love, but you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously
For I have loved you so long
Delighting in your company

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever you would crave
I have both waged life and land
Your love and goodwill for to have

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

Your vows you've broken, like my heart,
Oh, why did you so enrapture me?
Now I remain in a world apart
But my heart remains in captivity.

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

If you intend thus to disdain,
It does the more enrapture me,
And even so, I still remain
A lover in captivity.

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

Hey Joe
Der letzte Hippie lebt im Ruhrgebiet
Und We shall overcome ist immer noch sein Lieblingslied
Er hat die Haare lang und wohnt im Fass
unter der Ruhrtalbrcke und raucht Grass

Er nennt sich
Joe, hey Joe, love and peace and rock 'n' roll
Joe, hey Joe, war die alte Zeit nicht toll
Joe, hey Joe, als Hendrix aus den Boxen quoll
Joe, hey Joe, et is vorbei, so isset woll.

Neulich war ne Demo, die Studenten ham gestreikt.
Joe is hin, wie frher, da hat er sich gefreut.
Sie wolln die Welt nicht retten, das Establishment verdrehn,
Es geht nur um die Kohle, aber trotzdem isset schn

Joe, hey Joe, love and peace and rock 'n' roll
Joe, hey Joe, war die alte Zeit nicht toll
Joe, hey Joe, als Hendrix aus den Boxen quoll
Joe, hey Joe, et is vorbei, so isset woll.

Die Mia wohnt in Wattenscheid, wo die Kommune war
noch immer trgt sie Minirock und Blumen in ihrm Haar.
Und wie se auffe Demo stand im Flower-Power-Kleid
Nahm Joe se anne Hand und sagt: Komm mit, et is nich weit.

Ich bin der
Joe, hey Joe, und Mia denkt an rock 'n' roll
Joe, hey Joe, war die alte Zeit nicht toll
Joe, hey Joe, als Hendrix aus den Boxen quoll
Joe, hey Joe, et is vorbei, so isset woll.

Die Mia war ja selber in Woodstock mit dabei.
Sie blieb der freien Liebe schon immer gerne treu
Se guckten an und denkt O Mann, der Typ hat langes Haar,
da geht se mit und geht mit Joe und jetzt sind sie ein Paar.

Joe, hey Joe


 
Holiday
Last week I spent a holiday
Upon an island far away
the sun kept shining every day
the nights so mild in every bay
But then I had to go back home
I'm homesick & I feel alone
It's raining & the wind is blowing
Reminds me of the sun that shone

I wish I had a holiday
I wish I could just get away
I hate to think I got to stay
when I consider the next day
I wish I had a holiday
I wish I could just get away
I hate to think I got to stay
I wish I had a holiday

I was as happy as can be
On that small island in the sea
& every day I could be me
Enjoy my time & feel so free
But now I'm back at work again
I can no longer go to swim
I look outside & see the rain
I got my memory on my brain

Just take me where the sky is blue
& nothing which I have to do
where life is fun & joy is true
Why don't you join me & come, too
The next vacation I will spend
Upon my island in the sand
escape the daily round again
Just come with me & take my hand

 
Home
For a long time I've been searching for something I had lacked
I never knew what it could be
With oh so many people & places I could go
too many things I hated to see

And they told me I'd need reason
& they said I needed wealth
that I couldn't do without things
like security or health
But I found what I miss, now I know what it is
'Cause no place was a home for me

For a short time I'd been trying to settle down and stay
& it made me feel homesick and blue
Cause too long I'd been clinging to rock-music and singing
Without it I had nothing left to do

I felt lonely in the crowd
they told me a bunch of lies
to work by day and sleep at night
& said there'd be no taking without giving
But for sure they are wrong, I can always sing a song
for a living.

When I go along the road it's so cosy in the car
I love the world around I'm passing through
I feel all the things I see in a way belong to me
& every day I'm given something new.

& when I get doubts
Just turn the music loud
& again I'm happy & I know
what it is all about
Yeah, the road is my home & the music the place where I belong
Yeah, the road is my home & the music the place where I belong
& if I think I can't go on I start singing a new song for a living
Yeah, the road is my home & the music the place where I belong

 
Hope, Love, Faith, And Peace
Will you try things when you doubt you will ever succeed
Or would you give up and surrender, ignore what you feel
You may chase an idea you probably will never reach,
But hope is the art to persue what cannot really be.

Can you find rest in ideas of of a harmony dream
Or do you enjoy to find glory in all things you see
Change the world in your mind what is evil becomes an ideal
Love is the freedom to justify all self-deceit

Why do you think there is something that matters at all
A promise you seize cause you want to believe in a goal
In a wish you believe cause you need a reason to strive
Faith is the way to maintain allegiance to life

Can you find calm in your days when everything's done
When life is in line with ideals and all challenges won
Your passions just sleep and conceive a new dream to fight for
Peace is the time to forget why to never make war

 
How Come You Know
You have been able to give me
what I've been missing tonight
You have been able to give me
more than just kisses tonight

I don't know why you don't seem to notice
How come you know, how come you feel my thoughts

I cannot keep it a secret
don't want to leave you alone
In a few hours the long years
without a meaning were gone

I don't know why I had never noticed
How come I know, how come I feel your thoughts

Can't it be for love

You have been able to give me
what I've been missing for long
I cannot keep it a secret
don't want to leave you alone

I don't know why we had never noticed
How come you know, how come you feel my thoughts
How come I know, how come I feel your thoughts

 
How Strong
How strong is your love, babe
It seems to fade away
How strong is your love, babe
How long will it stay
How strong is your love, babe
when you feel blue
How strong is your love, babe
How strong are you

Love is fragile
love can die
it can be anything
and it be a lie

How big is your love, babe
will it ever grow high
How big is your love, babe
can it cry, can it fly
Would you miss me somehow
if I ever said goodbye
How big is your love, babe
is it something you can still deny
How big is your love, babe
is it always worth a new try

Love is fragile
love can die
it can do anything
and it won't ask why

How deep is your love, babe
will it stand through the rain
How deep is your love, babe
will it always remain
When you're old and weary
will it still be the same
How deep is your love, babe
can it touch my heart again

Love is fragile
love can die
You got to keep it going
at least you try

 
Hush-a-bye
Hush-a-bye, don't you cry, go to sleep you little baby.
When you wake you shall have all those pretty little horses.
Dapples and greys, pintos and bays, all those pretty little horses.

Way down yonder, in the meadow, Where little baby cryin, "mama";
Birds and the butterflies flutter round his eyes, And little baby cryin' "mama".

Hush-a-bye, don't you cry, go to sleep you little baby.
When you wake you shall have all those pretty little horses.
Dapples and greys, pintos and bays, all those pretty little horses.

-I-
I Got A Feeling
I got a feeling when you are around
like bees in my belly, &sunshine in my sound
like champagne in my brain, little wings around my feet
Can't help this feeling every time we meet
and it's just good, sweeter than marshmallow

I got a feeling when you look into my eyes
like Christmas time in August, like the purple in sunrise
Soft like fresh spring water, &strong like ocean tides
Can't help this feeling every time you're by my side
and it's so good, warmer than midsummer

and I don't know where it's leading me
I don't know where it is gonna lead me
I don't know
I don't know where it's leading me
I don't know where it is gonna lead me


I got a feeling when your body hugs my soul
like bubbles in a sparkling drink,like the beat of rock'n'roll
like a rose among the seaweeds, like icecream within a diet
like a summer breeze in winter & the moon my bedroom light
and it's just good, it'll always be all right -
and I don't know where it's leading me
I don't know where it is gonna lead me
I don't know
and I don't know where it's leading me
I don't know where it is gonna lead me
I don't know
I got a feeling

 
I Know Where I'm Going
I know where I'm going
And I know who's going with me
I know who I love
And the dear knows who I'll marry.

I have stockings of silk
And shoes of bright green leather
Combs to buckle my hair
And a ring for every finger.

Some say he's black
But I say he's bonnie
The fairest of them all
My handsome winsome Johnny.

Feather beds are soft
And painted rooms are bonny
But I would leave them all
To go with my love my Johnny.

 
I'll Be Gone
What would you do if I weren't around
What would you do on your own
What would you do if noone came round
Would you like being alone

Would you forget me, or would it be bad
Would you feel sad or blue
Would you remember what we once had
Just tell me: what would you do?

'Cause I'm leaving tomorrow and I'm leaving for good
And I'm leaving you here all alone
If it worries you none, I'm not saying it should,
it's OK, but for sure I'll be gone

What would you say if you just came in here
nobody there any more
Would you be happy, drink too much beer
would you make love with a whore

Don't really tell me, I don't want to know
Nothing can stop me no more
Come what may and what is coming my way
Anyway, I'll close the door

'Cause I'm leaving tomorrow and I'm leaving for good
And I'm leaving you here all alone
If it worries you none, I'm not saying it should,
it's OK, but for sure I'll be gone

 
I'll Tell Me Ma

 
If You Were
Would you like to be a color,
Which one would you be?
Would it be dark and mysterios
Like a lake in the night
Or an ocean, feral and deep?
Would it be bright and sparkling
Like virgin snow in dawn,
Or in the sunlight the sea?
Would it be jarring and motley
Like a paradise bird
Or wild flowers dancing with glee?

Would you like to be a sound,
Which one would it be?
Would it be soft and soothing
Like in summer the sea
Or like thunder, ferocious and free?
Would it be music
Mild, mellow, and sweet
Or heavy and thrilling the beat?
Would it be nature or art
Like a song in the forest
Or even a great master's symphony?

You got your choice
It’s all up to you
You got the power
To decide
- What you are
What you want, what you do.
Think it over, and then
Pick the right

If you were what you are
Would it be what you’d like?
Would it match your ideas
Like a groom and a bride
And color the picture all right?
Would it meet what you need
Like a sound be in tune
And harmonize with your view?
Or would it just be phoney,
fake and mere façade,
Or really truly be you?

Imagination
See the world in a mirror
Like I'm standing otside
When I look in the twilight sky
full of shadows, full of mystics, it's so high

There are hundreds of watching eyes
Moisture veiling their light
I can see through them what I like
clouds are driven shapes of water, blue & white

Hear the wind like a promise, I want it to be true
But it might be a lie like the ones that I knew

Why can I not believe my eyes
moaning winds mock my tunes
Can I trust in their minstrelsy
is it real, is it true identity?

See all things in a mirror
Fumes of figures I met
Fugitives from mere images
so illusive they can't haunt me with deceit

Twilight full of reflections
through the eyes of the sky
so familiar it's driving home
an ideal, it's an idyll, just a lie Had to rely on some outlines, dawn had made them complete Now I fill in the features the way that I need Fantasy is a mirror Truth is only a word Never wait for reality Life is only what you want it to be Life ain't no more than it just seems to be.

 
In The Break Of Day
Wake up in the break of day
Cool the air, the clouds so grey
Turn around, I see you
And the sun comes shining through

On a dark day sun can rise
in a twinkle of your eyes
Air turning nice and warm
And your smile can calm a storm

And love has just returned to me
I had lost it somewhere on the way
And love has just returned to me
And pretends it is going to stay

Wake up in the break of day
Dreams fading fast away
They don't vanish, they turn real
Feel your touch, and then I feel

Love has just returned to me
I had lost it somewhere on the way
And love has just returned to me
And pretends it is going to stay

In the break of day


Wake up in the break of day
Watch the rainbow colours play
Magic morning, magic you
it is magic that you do

'Cause love has just returned to me
I had lost it somewhere on the way
And love has just returned to me
And pretends it is going to stay

In the break of day

 
Indian Summer Lullaby
Huge spiders' webs
Trying to catch
Summernight drerams
and sticky they bind ease
In dew drops at their end
Fading sunlight is canned
Still life ahead
Peace and threat newlywed

See the wind in the trees, feel the breeze
See the haze in the says, rime on the ways
Feel the cold in the night, the low, low light
The air is full of drizzle, but even that's all right
It's just fall coming round to calm you down
And the storms sing out their dirge

Hold ot to smoke
Indian summer dope
Thoughts fly down south
in the shape of big black clouds
Joy moving inside
Days are swallowed by night
Still life ahead
the ground a shrouded bed

See the wind in the trees, feel the breeze
See the haze in the says, rime on the ways
Feel the cold in the night, the low, low light
The air is full of drizzle, but even that's all right
It's just fall coming round to calm you down
And the storms sing out their dirge

Yeah, it's fall coming round to calm you down
It is fall coning round to calm you down
With a soft hand on your shoulder you can't turn it down
Just hear the storms lull out their dirge
With the spell of sirens' songs: it's fall that's coming round
With its soft hand and the voice of summer fall is coming round
Yeah, it's just fall coming round to calm you down
Now go out and hear the storms lull out their dirge
It's a lullaby when the storms sing their dirge

 
Irish Lullaby
Toora, loora, loora,
Toora, loora, li,
Toora, loora, loora,
Hush now don't you cry,
Toora, loora, loora,
Toora, loora, li,
Toora, loora, loora,
It's an Irish Lullaby.

Over in Killarney,
many years ago
My mother sang this song to me
In tones so sweet and low
Just a simple little ditty
In her good old Irish way
And I'd give the world if she could sing
that song to me today

Oft' in dreams I wander,
to that cot again,
I feel her arms a-huggin' me,
As when she held me then,
And I hear her voice a-humming
to me, As in days of yore,
When she would rock me fast asleep,
Outside the cabin door.

Toora, loora, loora,
Toora, loora, li,
Toora, loora, loora,
Hush now don't you cry,
Toora, loora, loora,
Toora, loora, li,
Toora, loora, loora,
It's an Irish Lullaby.
It's an Irish Lullaby.

 
It Don't Matter At All
Down in the brain rests a pain
And I wonder when I feel it again
It feels like rain washing down the drain
But the stains remain & the memories are in vain

It could be for you, it could be untrue
And it couln't be new at all
And it sticks like glue, all the world is blue
It's the kind of brew to drown in

Up in the sky there's a lullaby
And I wonder why it could fly so high
I can hear it cry kind of faint and shy
But as time goes by it remains an alibi.

It could be for joy, it could be a toy
and it couldn't be coy at all
& it seems so far, like a fading star
But it left a scar on daylight

& it don't really matter if you're high or low
if you stay or go, or whatever you know
& it don't really matter, you can drown or be
like the wind so free, or at the bottom of the sea

& it don't really matter, who should care
if you're here or there, or maybe nowhere
& it don't really matter if you rise or fall
if you're tiny or tall, or a concrete wall
or a Barbie-doll, or a poor man's call
it don't matter - at all.

It don't really matter, it don't matter at all

 
It's Hard To Be A Fortune Teller (Bandversion)
Down in the ocean is a little catfish
He used to be my best friend in a childish wish
Up in the sky there is a big fat bird
His wings cast shadows where no sound is heard
Far in the distance is a story book
casting spells oneveryone who doesn't look
On the sand is a castle with a king inside
andhe has forgotten how to kiss his bride

and I got runes in my bag and a crystal ball, you can ask me anything, I will predict it all
But it's up to you if it's coming true - it's your own decision what you're gonna do
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be decent in a world which is haunting me

Down in the alley is a sick old man
and he keeps his brain in a frying pan
Floating on the river is a paper boat
It's delivering wisdom to the ones who know
And on top of the mall the witches ride their brooms,
there ain't no more ups and downs and there ain't no doom
A young girl is dancing upon a star
and then she gets run over by a model car

I got runes in my bag and premonition inside and fear is on my shoulder and the light's too bright
I foresee what's gonna happen, but it's up to you, you can believe it ot not, what's true is always true
It's hard to be a fortune teller anyway, your world is haunting me, your value is decay

Merlin's grandson made satellite
which can light the whole world in all parts at night
and now the ravens sing it in their croaking voice:
you must look, you must work, you must, you've got no choice
The children can't write and they can't even speak
and they can only see when they're watching TV
They got a button on their back and a little key
and robots produce them in a factory

I still got runes in my bag and a crystal ball - my cards on the table trying to warn you all
and the nothing in the world is such an awful lot that you ain't really got a thing of those you think you got
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be decent in a world which is haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be friendly in your world world because it's haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be - to be in a world which keeps on haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be - your world is haunting me, yeah it keeps haunting me

you must look, you must work, you must, you've got no choice
The children can't write and they can't even speak
and they can only see when they're watching TV
They got a button on their back and a little key
and robots produce them in a factory

I still got runes in my bag and a crystal ball - my cards on the table trying to warn you all
and the nothing in the world is such an awful lot that you ain't really got a thing of those you think you got
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be decent in a world which is haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be friendly in your world world because it's haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be - to be in a world which keeps on haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be - your world is haunting me, yeah it keeps haunting me

Jack Of All Trades
I am a roving sporting blade, they call me Jack of all Trades
I always place my chief delight in courting pretty fair maids.
So when in Dublin I arrived to try for a situation
I always heard them say it was the pride of all the Nations.

I'm a roving jack of many trades
Of every trade of all trades
And if you wish to know my name
They call me Jack of all trades.

On George's Quay I first began and there became a porter
Me and my master soon fell out which cut my acquaintance shorter
In Sackville Street, a pastry cook; In James' Street, a baker
In Cook Street I did coffins make; In Eustace Street, a preacher.

In Golden Lane I sold old shoes: In Meath Street was a grinder
In Barrack Street I lost my wife. I'm glad I ne'er could find her.
In Mary's Lane, I've dyed old clothes, of which I've often boasted
In that noted place Exchequer Street, sold mutton ready roasted.

 
Jealousy
You got another woman
You got another girl
I know it ain't the first time
And I know you you too well

You're with her just because she feels new
And your vanity wants to be pleased
But she won't love you better than I do
And I know ways you don't like to be teased

I'm gonna find myself some cute guy
I won't have trouble with that
There ain't no point in sitting round and cry
It's hard enough to take that you keep making me sad

You'll be running back home to me

 
Just Another Girl Soloversion
Late last night I was feeling fine
Late last night I thiught you were going to be mine
I had been trying so hard not to get burned up in an hour
I wouldn't have believed it was for only one time

Early this morning - daylight already rolling round
Early this morning, you forgot what it all had been about
Early this morning, I realized the way you must have been thinking
and I felt so bad about it as soon as I went out

Early this morning, I realized I was doing wrong
Shouln't have stayed with you, but I hadn't been so strong
Now it is too late, I'm in trouble again
and you're not worth it, 'cause it didn't last long

I was for you just another girl
In just another night
I was for you just another girl
In just another night

Keep On Moving
I tried to take a short vacation
And I went through a land I had lost
It was a mystic revelation
When I remembered forgotten thoughts

And I was so much in the mood for missing you
when I saw the beauty of this world I was going through
I saw your eyes before me, the color of the sky
But I realized you weren't there and I fell in the mood to cry

Just tried to take a short vacation
I never came back, 'cause I got lost
turned out a mystic revelation
I couldn't find you there in my thoughts

And I just keep on moving

It was a sky like silk and satin
Pastel the colored world under mist
the setting sun paints clouds of fire
Canals reflect it through the black trees

& I was so much in the mood for loving you
when I saw the magic of the world I was going through
I saw you right before me, as if you were close by
but I realized it wasn't true, and I fell in the mood to cry

And I still keep on moving, moving through my time
you keep on moving

 
Kein Schöner Land
Kein schöner Land in dieser Zeit
Als wie das uns're weit und breit
Wo wir uns finden Wohl unter Linden
Zur Abendszeit

Da haben wir so manche Stund'
Gesessen da in froher Rund
Und taten singen Die Lieder klingen
Im Eichengrund

Dass wir uns hier in diesem Tal
Noch treffen so viel hundertmal
Gott mag es schenken Gott mag es lenken
Er hat die Gnad

Nun Brüder eine gute Nacht
Der Herr im hohen Himmel wacht
In seiner Güte Uns zu behüten
Ist Er bedacht

Lady Of The Fountain Soloversion
There's a lady in the fountain, with waterwhite hair
She's made out of water, she won't ever care

She's got one leg to dance on and a thousand arms
Her hips move around her, sparkling out her charms

When you think she is smiling, her body drowns in tears
and when she stops dancing she'll have to disappear

She's the lady of the fountain
Shakes her waterwide hair
Lady of the fountain
Will never have to care
The lady of the fountain
- dances with everyone
She's made out of water,
She'll never have fun
Lady of the fountain


She's fragile and wild, and her watersoul's cold
her power artificial - spite out of a hole

Feel the breeze that she sends you to show she's alive
Feel her damp curls caress you, and the dew they leave behind

On your skin when you hold her, she'll splash herself away
Celebrating her freedom - just watch the way she plays

She's the lady of the fountain
Shakes her waterwide hair
Lady of the fountain
Will never have to care
The lady of the fountain
- dances with everyone
She's made out of water,
She'll never have fun

 
Lark In The Clear Air
Dear thoughts are in my mind
And my soul soars enchanted
As I hear the sweet lark sing
In the clear air of the day
For a tender beaming smile
To my hope has been granted
And tomorrow she shall hear
All my fond heart would say

I shall tell her all my love
And my soul's adoration
And I think she will hear me
And will not say me nay
It is this that gives my soul
All its joyous elation
As I hear the sweet lark sing
In the clear air of the day

 
Leis O'Lurrighan
On the ocean o´he
Waves in motion o´ho
Not but clouds could we see
O´er the blue sea below

Islay loomin´ o´he
In the gloamin´ o´ho
Our ship´s compass set we
And our lights we did show

Leis a Lurrighan o´he
Leis a Lurrighan o´ho
In the grey dark of evening
O´er the waves let us go

Aros passing o´he
Was harrassing o´ho
The proud billows to see
High as masthead to flow

Captain hollers o´he
To his fellows o´ho
Those that courage would flee
Let him go down below

Leis a Lurrighan o´he
Leis a Lurrighan o´ho
In the grey dark of evening
O´er the waves let us go

In the tempest o´he
Waves were crashing o´ho
And the cry of the sea
As the cold winds did blow

Captain hollers o´he
To his fellows o´ho
Those that won´t stay with me
Let them go down below

Leis a Lurrighan o´he
Leis a Lurrighan o´ho
In the grey dark of evening
O´er the waves let us go

 
Life Is A Stream
Sometimes all thoughts - they have ended to turn
time's dripping out of the stars
Dreams falling down from the trees and they burn
lights into the dark

First there's a blind man, he just doesn't see
Then there's a wise man, he falls
Then there's a wish to show how it could be
But the world's gonna shatter them all.

Wounds get invisible, but yet they last
So many hours, maybe never passed
Love is a vision God put behind bars
It is so far, it's too far

Nothing remains, and the wind's blowing cold
Life is not more than a breath
What's become new, it is really so old
that the earth had to forget

Then understand things you had never known
Life is a stream, never tame
Only in rest can eternity grow,
Something forever the same.

So many things become visible then
So many ways can be trodden again
So much is destroyed that has never been made
So many ages do fade

There is a gate to a different age
to a stream that'll drive us with might and rage
& those waves, they can cause the world to change
Yesterday's over today

 
Life Is Easy When You Are In Love
When I wake up right by your side
Feeling the waves - too short the night
Spring in the air, nothing to say
You are still there in the break of day

Everything is easy when you are in love
Butterflies and breezes lift your mind above
Life don't need a reason, days don't need an aim
Life can be so easy, life can start again
Everything's all right, it's all right

life is easy - when you're in love

When I come home - don't feel alone
You make me feel like it ain't real
No need to talk, No word is right
fumes of spring bear the heat of the night

All the sounds are echoes of your voice in empty halls
See those little nothings as signs on the walls
Love don't need a reason, Love won't need you tough
life can be so easy when you are in love

Everything's all right, it's all right

Life is easy when you're in love:IIII

 
Lifetime
All those hours - feel when they are passing
precious moments - we cannot see them move
But they won't return
Time's running quietly
It won't come back
You cannot store it
in a sack

All those long days - we didn't see they won't last
Endless seasons - fading away so soon
and they won't return
Stop living tomorrow
You won't catch it today
It is always ahead of you
anyway

What are we always running after
What do we really want to find
It'll be too late after leaving
so many useless hours behind

Wasting our time away by searching
Looking for what we do not lack
This very moment will be over in a second
Then there's no way to get it back

Life is a million of these moments
and they're all you ever really own
Don't let impatience take them from you
Follow the road that leads you home.

What do you want - what do you really want
Time will not return

 
Like A Leaf In The Wind
Love is like a leaf in the wind
It might get blown away
Falling from the tree where it grew
And it never knows where it may stay.
Love is like a beam of light
It might cast shade or blind
Like a wizard it makes mountains move
And it can turn water into wine.

Love is like a snowflake so nice
Just handle it with care
If can melt in heat or turn into ice
Or Just vanish into the air.
Love is like a bird on the roof
It can fly above the ground
And then it might come back or leave
And it might turn the world around.

Love is like a beggar in the street
A searching life he leads
But he feels at home where he can meet
A tiny bit of what he needs-
Love is like a painting of art
A million points of view
Like a rainbow in the dork
And it cannot grow old, only new.
You may find it in the alley where the ragged people are
And it feels good when it hovers to the moonlight and the stars
Doesn't ask where it is welcome, doesn't care where it may be
And it never minds a thing, it's only free
Like a leaf in the wind.

 
Loch Lomond (Soloversion)
By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond,
Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.

O ye'll tak' the high road, and I'll tak' the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland a'fore ye,
But me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.

'Twas there that we parted, in yon shady glen,
On the steep, steep side o' Ben Lomond,
Where in purple hue, the hieland hills we view,
And the moon coming out in the gloaming.

O ye'll tak' the high road, and I'll tak' the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland a'fore ye,
But me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.

The wee birdies sing and the wild flowers spring,
And in sunshine the waters are sleeping.
But the broken heart it kens nae second spring again,
Though the waeful may cease frae their grieving.

O ye'll tak' the high road, and I'll tak' the low road,v And I'll be in Scotland a'fore ye,
But me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.

O ye'll tak' the high road, and I'll tak' the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland a'fore ye,
But me and my true love will never meet again,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.

 
Lord Of All
There's fall outside and fall in me
and fall is on the windowpane
The storm's getting cold, the clouds look bold
the sun tries lighting life in vain

A little candle's burning tall
and flickers shadows upon the wall
No, life, I own no peace in fall
for love is lord of all


and often when our music plays
I feel the moon like spotlight shine
Reflecting the challenge of those days
when your life was a part of mine

I hear a whisper in the fire
the voice of wisdom is nice and calm
We had it all, despair and desire
and life is really lord of all

Love Song
Oh, you can break loveBut then you can't mend it
Yeah, you can shake love and sure you can end it
If you want to take loveYou've got to tend it
If you just want to make love You don't have to spend it
But it's too late to leave
it has grown, it's a home
Don't want back what you give
You can't lend it

Oh, you can tear loveand you don't have to fee it
and you can scare lovein the moment you see it
There are ways to declare love But you can't guarantee it
You may wish that you share love It ain't easy to free it
Then it's too late to leave
It has grown, it's a home
Don't refuse what you own
You can't flee it

What do you cry for?You cannot buy love
Why do you lie for a way to deny love?
There is nothing to die for, so how justify love?
There's no-one to try for,I gave you my love
But it's too late to leave
It has grown, it's a home
Don't you see, life is just
you and I, love.

 
Love's Lullaby
In moments of happiness, in moments of peace
World becomes a resting place & sings songs of ease

Love's waiting for you
Love makes it come true

There's no room for ugliness, feel no harm around
No meaning ambiguous, power of words bound

Why don't we know, why don't we know,
Why don't we know, how to find it

Where do we go, where do we go
follow the power behind it
where do you think you will find it
How do you think it will show?

Love's waiting for you -

Love makes it come true
Why can't we all -
why can't we follow it

Love's waiting for you
Where do we hear -
Love's lullaby

Love's waiting for you
Why can't we all try to find it

In pictures of harmony lies eternity
lullaby for refugees, pleasing to agree
Find comfort in listening to lullabies of love
Whenever raised by tender breezes from above
On rays of strange origin soaring like a dove

 
Love, Love, Love
I can see it in your eyes
I see it in your smile
And in the way you're walking
every single mile
In the twinkle of the stars
shining from above
Your face is just a mirror
saying "love, love, love".

You are dancing in the rain
And singing in the car
You forget your keys,
drink water at the bar
Your face is just an open book,
three words that say enough
I look inside and read them:
"Love, love, love".

You tell no freedom stories
And wear your Sunday shoes
You leave the box unopened
in which you keep your blues
Your mood is sparkling like your teeth
your chin no longer rough
Your face is just a window showing
Love, love, love.

I know you are in love
Love, love, love.

 
Loving You
See the bird, the way it flies
through the days into the night
I can follow with my mind
On the wings of love we ride

Loving you I'm
Sleeping in a soft cloud
resting on invisible ground
Why should I wake up in the morning?

See the tree, the way it sways
softly through the summer days
Words of love are in my ear
follow what I want to hear


See the mountains reaching high
Stand for things that never die
Power in eternal sleep
I found you inside a dream

 
Luck
I know a lady, she got no age
She's looking young & old in a way
has dinner at midnight, breakfast at noon
She can talk with the trees
& make love with the moon

She'll have time for rest in eternity

Nighttime is her time, she doesn't sleep
She laughs when she wants,
when she's sad she can weep
Life is too short to drowse it away
& she can always dream in the day

She can do magic, you are spellbound
her hair can turn red, & then yellow or brown
She loves everybody & doesn't ask why
she can make things happen,
she's living on life

She can't explain the thoughts she's led by
Some inner voice tells her how to decide
& she will not have to justify
years full of lies on the day she will die

Happiness can make you sleep well at night
But she wants trouble to fill her life
Gaining experience, she likes her luck rough
eternal peace will come early enough

For how can you judge
what you hadn't lived through
emotions that have never been inside you
She understands there is more than one mood
she never cares about evil or good

I know a lady, she needs no age
years aren't numbers, aims aren't ways
My lady isn't waiting for chance
where she got in, she'll get out again

She'll have time for rest in eternity

Magic Creatures
All the creatures of the night
that you never see
Gather in the forest
around a huge old willow tree
In the clearing in the wood
Where the rainbow ends
When the moon is full
There is a magic creatures band

And all the elves are dancing
around the willow tree
Singing "Hi diddle die and diddle de dee
Hi diddle die and diddle de dee" -
And then they want to dance with me

When the sun is going to set
And the dark is falling
All the creatures of the night
Have a place to meet
In the clearing in the wood
Magic choirs callingv See them in their magic light
And all around is peace

And all the fairies dance
around the willow tree
Singing "Hi diddle die and diddle de dee
Hi diddle die and diddle de dee" -
And then they want to dance with me

In the forest very deep
Where the rainbow ends
Everyone is having fun
And all of them are friends
Full moon, magic light
Take them by their hands
Feel the drive and join
The magic creatures dance

And the witches dance
around the willow tree
Singing "Hi diddle die and diddle de dee"
The spirits of the trees dance
around the willow tree
Singing "Hi diddle die and diddle de dee"
And the leprachauns are dancing
around the willow tree
Singing "Hi diddle die and diddle de dee"
All the dwarfs are dancing
around the willow tree
Singing "Hi diddle die and diddle de dee"
And all the giants dance
around the willow tree
Singing "Hi diddle die and diddle de dee"
And all the elves are dancing
around the willow tree
Singing "Hi diddle die and diddle de dee
Hi diddle die and diddle de dee" -
And then they want to dance with me

 
Maria Durch Ein Dornwald Ging

 
Marilyn Monroe
One day Maggie was in a very gloomy mood
When she looked into her mirror - and what she found was good
and she fell in love with her image that day
and that love was the root for the power of her
hate in some weird way
and she sensed she had to use op the people that she knew
more than they'd been using her and worse than they would do
and it wasn't even mean, it seemed justified
For how could things be bad that worked for everyone and
made her feel allright?

She was dancing on the rim of a deep round well
to the brassy sound of a glassy bell
and a fire at the bottom was burning on
It was nourished by passion and love that was gone
There was heat in the air and a smoky cloud above
and the giggles and the sighs of a couple making love
and around there was a market, everybody tried to sell
Maggie's mind and Maggie's body and a picture of the
moment when she fell

and the mirror said: You take what you can't get
If you can't get esteem, you must have self - respect.
and Maggie tried it out, it seemed to work a while
But she was never tough, and fighting all alone just
made her weak inside
Noone cared about her in the way that she would need
and what she really was was for them less than what she seemed
and then she played with time and people and with truth and lies
she tried to buy the world, but she was bought instead and
even paid the price

She was dancing on the rim of a deep round well
to the brassy sound of a glassy bell
and a fire at the bottom was burning on
It was nourished by passion and love that was gone
There was heat in the air and a smoky cloud above
and the giggles and the sighs of a couple making love
and around there was a market, everybody tried to sell
Maggie's mind and Maggie's body and a picture of the
moment when she fell

She was loved by everybody like they love a child
But cofusion isn't innocence, and dancing can turn wild
She didn't know which way to go and tore her soul apart
Life is strange without an aim, and chosing all directions had
to crack her fragile heart.

She was dancing on the rim of a deep round well
to the brassy sound of a glassy bell
and a fire at the bottom was burning on
It was nourished by passion and love that was gone
There was heat in the air and a smoky cloud above
and the giggles and the sighs of a couple making love
and around there was a market, everybody tried to sell
Maggie's mind and Maggie's body, they were
waiting that she fell

She was dancing on the rim of a deep round well
to the brassy sound of a glassy bell
and a fire at the bottom was burning on
It was nourished by passion and love that was gone
There was heat in the air and a smoky cloud above

Martinmas Time
It fell out upon one Martinmas time
When snow lay on the border
There came a troop of soldiers here
To take up their winter quarters

And they road south and they rode north
And they rode o'er the border
And there they met with a nice little girl
She was a farmer's daughter

Well, they made her swear a solemn oath
A salt tear in her eye
That she would come to the quarter gates
But no one did her spy

But she's gone to the barber's shop
To the barber's shop went soon
She made them cut her long, yellow hair
As short as any dragoon

And she's gone to the tailor's shop
And dressed in soldier's clothes
Two long pistols down by her side
A nice, little boy was she

And she's gone to the quarter gates
And loudly she does call
There comes a troop of soldiers here
We must have lodgings all"

And the quartermaster, he comes down
He gives her half a crown
"Go find your lodgings in the town
Tonight there is no room"

So she moved closer to the gates
loudest she does call
"Room, room, you gentlemen
You must have lodgings all"

And the quartermaster, he comes down
He gives her eighteen pence
"Go find your lodgings in the town
Tonight'll come a wench"

So she took a pistol from her side
She blew it loud and shrill
The longer you plea with your eighty pence
You'll not get a girl at all"

And she took the garter from her knee
The ribbon from her hair
She tied them 'round the quarter gates
A token she'd been there

And when they found that it was her
They tried to have her taken
She slapped her spurs to her horse's side
She galloped home a maiden

 
May Your Dreams Come True
You go because you say you must be on your own
I'm sort of in your way and I'm gonna be alone
You never said you would stay,
and you never stopped to roam
I had thought it was OK,
as long as you came back home

Now all things have changed,
& without you they're strange
I'll get used to it, there was more to get over
There were things I had seen
that have never been real
Cause you were never really my lover

So what I wish for the future, & what I wish for you
Is: May your dreams come true
All your dreams

You were always a dreamer, once high up or low down
& I couldn't rely on your smile or your frown
You forgot me and later
you remembered me by
But I loved you around
and I didn't care why

We won't have to break up,
we'll just be apart
It is sure gonna be hard to get over
But I'll manage to make it,
I'll be able to take it
Cause you were never really my lover

And what I wish for the future and what I wish for you
Is: May your dreams come true
All your dreams

If you 're leaving for good, you see tears in my eyes
Go ahead where you came, I don't want to hear lies
Some day you'll be old
and perhaps even wise
Keep the time that we spent
in your heart , it was nice

& if you should seek to see me next week
You just make up your mind and come over
We'll drink tea and we'll smile
and pretend for a while
to forget you were never my lover

 
Misty Meadow
When I hear Ihe sound of the falling rain
Glimpse erratic drops on my windowpane
Deep in their little light I see
No peace of mind is inside me
I want to lie down and take rest
I wish there was a place to hide
Why can't there be some fog around me
I want to lie down

I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

When I find you standing at my door
When I know what you're waiting for
I feel somehow you're never free
& I need time to be with me
I want to lie down, take my time -
I wish there was a place to hide
Why can't there be some fog around me
I want to lie down

I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

I want to lie down take some rest
I want to lie down out of sight
I want to lie down, take my time -
I want to take my time to live
I want to take my time to love
I want to take my time to think
I want to lie down
I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

 
Misty Meadow (Alruna-Version)
When I hear Ihe sound of the falling rain
Glimpse erratic drops on my windowpane
Deep in their little light I see
No peace of mind is inside me
I want to lie down and take rest
I wish there was a place to hide
Why can't there be some fog around me
I want to lie down

I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

When I find you standing at my door
When I know what you're waiting for
I feel somehow you're never free
& I need time to be with me
I want to lie down, take my time -
I wish there was a place to hide
Why can't there be some fog around me
I want to lie down

I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

I want to lie down take some rest
I want to lie down out of sight
I want to lie down, take my time -
I want to take my time to live
I want to take my time to love
I want to take my time to think
I want to lie down
I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

 
Misty Meadow (Solo live)
When I hear the sound of the falling rain
Glimpse erratic drops on my windowpane
Deep in their little light I see
No peace of mind is inside me
I want to lie down and take rest
I wish there was a place to hide
Why can't there be some fog around me
I want to lie down

I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

When I find you standing at my door
When I know what you're waiting for
I feel somehow you're never free
& I need time to be with me
I want to lie down, take my time -
I wish there was a place to hide
Why can't there be some fog around me
I want to lie down

I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

I want to lie down take some rest
I want to lie down out of sight
I want to lie down, take my time -
I want to take my time to live
I want to take my time to love
I want to take my time to think
I want to lie down
I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

 
Molly Malone
In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone
As she wheeled her wheelbarrow through streets broad and narrow
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O!

A-live a-live O! A-live a-live O!
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O!

She was a fishmonger and sure it was no wonder
For so were her father and mother before
And they both wheeled their barrows through streets broad and narrow
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O!

A-live a-live O! A-live a-live O!
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O!

She died of a fever and no one could save her
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone
Now her ghost wheels her barrow through streets broad and narrow
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O!

A-live a-live O! A-live a-live O!
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O!
A-live a-live O! A-live a-live O!
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O!

 
Mood
I'm just following my mood
it's gonna lead me where it's feeling good
& if you want to follow, too
why don't you come along & feel free

I just want to be with you
& I don't care if I'll be feeling blue
when you are making me feel so brandnew
tommorrow cannot haunt me.

Don't know where it's leading me
Don't know to what I will surrender
Caressing me or cheating me
or leaving me dispair

I'm just following a mood
I know it's gonna make me feel so good
Why don't you come along & follow, too
The present can't deceive me
br> See where it is leading you
& let it carry you away
Caressing you or cheating you
- join me & don't stay

Caressing you or cheating you

Moonrise Bandversion
Moon rises over the forest,
moon rises over the town
Moon flying white horses
moonlight is pouring down - like milk
Moonlight is all around
Keeps dripping on the ground
All things begin to float
Drowse - daytime in a boat
And it's dripping from trees
and dancing on seas
and streaming over meadows
creating beautiful shadows,

*
Strange voices out of water,
strange voices in the wind
Strange features, night's daughters
mild creatures, songs they sing - like silk
Knowing a lullaby
breathe veils around the sky
sounds drizzling out silence
trying to drown violence
they know what rest is,
they can give peace,
and they don't disturb a lover
and offer wonderers cover.

*
They can as well flood wisdom with tears
Those they don't like
will only sense fright and fears -
It's dangerous - rapturous - treacherous

*
Moon rises over the forest
mild mellow over the town
Narcotic resources
spilt moonlight pouring down - like milk.

Morning
Early morning light, floating in so bright, until the next night
I got to throw - got to through my dreams -
Got to throw all my - all my dreams away.

Sunshine coming in, too much on my skin,
don't know where I've been
try to remember - I forgot it -
I don't remember, don't know where I've been.

Waking up is hard to do
Every morning I feel blue
Seems the world is not yet true
& I find dreams can't be real
hard - taking a long - time to see that a dream cannot be real.

Smoke from yesternoon, cold the incense fume,
air inside the room
it is too thick - full of left-overs
Sounds of music slowly filling it, too.

Turning back to be - in reality, boiling lots of tea
& ist aroma - makes me feel -
makes me feel, it makes me feel a lot better

Waking up is hard to do
Every morning I feel blue
Seems the world is not yet true
& I find dreams can't be real
hard - taking a long - time to see that a dream cannot be real.

Early morning light, morning in the night
Dreams are shattered now, fragments on the grouond
Morning being down, daytime rolling 'round
Morning - morning - morning.

 
My Lagan Love
Where Lagan stream sings lullaby
There grows a fairy fair
The twilight gleam is in her eye
The night is on her hair
And like a love-sick leannan-sidhe
She has my heart in thrall
Nor life I owe nor liberty
For love is lord of all.

And often when the beetle's horn
Hath lulled the eve to sleep
I steal unto her shieling lorn
And thru the dooring peep.
There on the cricket's singing stone,
Beyond my reach she stirs the fire,
And hums in sad sweet undertone
The songs of heart's desire.

If there was one wish she’d grant me
I’d show her what I’m dreaming of
In her world I would want to be
I dare not ask her for her love
For she’s immortal, I must go,
'Tis leaving Love and light
To feel the wind of longing blow
From out the dark of night.

 
My Way
Don't be sad, don't you cry - go along your highway
If you leave, I won't sigh, - I'm gonna do it my way
Put a smile on my face - and go on forever
Bygone days are bygone haze - and there ain't never "never"
Joy, joy is a little coy, joy is kind of shy
Love, love is a little tough - but you won't hear me sigh

Don't believe you feel the heat - the fire getting older
There are ways to survive - even if it's colder
Just put on your fastest shoes - and a skin of leather
Sunny days are funny days - but we got stormy weather
Joy, joy is alittle toy, joy is kind of shy
Love, love is a little tough-but you won't hear me sigh

So:
put on your smile and your warm wintercoat
and go on all along your lonesome raod
and just leave what you hate before it's too late
and no matter what you feel like, you've got light load
Joy, joy is a little boy, joy is kind of shy
Love, love is a little tough - but you won't hear me sigh

Put your smile on and your coat - and go on forever
Easy load or heavy load - it won't be getting better
Don't need love, have power enough - roam along your highway
You're not strong, come along - but: I'm gonna do it my way.
I'm gonna do it my way

Nebelwiese
Es regnet Topfen an das Glas
Sie irren hin und her zum Spass
In ihrem kleinen Flackerlicht
erkennt man: Ruhe gibt es nicht.
Ich will nur träumen, möchte ruhn
Nichts mehr versäumen, nichts mehr tun
und ungesehn die Zeit verstehn -
Es müsste eine Wiese sein
mit Morgennebelsonnenschein
für mich alleine

Da kann man liegen und zum Frieden fliegen und alles sein -

Wenn du vor meiner Türe stehst
Und wartest dass du mit mir gehst
Seh ich, hell wie im Neonlicht
geschrieben: Freiheit gibt es nicht.
Doch ich will träumen, brauche Zeit
Nichts mehr versäumen, nichts mehr eilt
Und alles schwebt und alles lebt -
Es könnte eine Wiese sein
im Abendnebelsonnenschein
für mich alleine

Da kann man liegen und zum Frieden fliegen und alles sein -

Ich will nur träumen, möchte ruhn
Nichts mehr versäumen, alles tun
Und ganz allein nur bei mir sein -
Es könnte eine Wiese sein
im Morgennebelsonnenschein
Da will ich Zeit, doch ist es weit
für mich alleine -

Da kann man liegen und zum Frieden fliegen und alles sein -

 
New Year In Songburg
Bells and Fireworks
 
Nightfall
Standing at the window I can see the world
carried inside on a moonbeam
Carried inside by the stars

Thousands of little sparkling lights
like rubies and diamond bracelets
like ruby & diamond rings

The world is a ball of crystal
The world is a ball of glass

The world is a ball of crystal
Showing invisible sights
The world is a ball of crystal
Magic of pulsing lights

The world is a crystal ball
at nightfall

 
Nightlife
All kinds of creatures that hide in the light
Come in the night, when it is dark
they are alive
First an idea then they are here
born of your mind

Manticores, elves, centaurs, and fairies of spite,
sylphids, mermen, and unicorns,
dragons and sprites
Whatever you can imagine
may give life to your nights

All kinds of creatures that hide in your mind
Come in the night, dance in your world
in the moonlight
First an idea, then they are here
they come to life

Werewolves and dragonfish, monsters and rocs
pegasus and shadowshapes,
and phoenixes and toads
Whatever you can think of
may be part of your ghosts

They hide in the gloom, they pretend, they're not real
Yet their mystery's there to revealwhat you feel
intangible like wind,
you can hear what they sing
lucid like lyrics, strange visions they bring

insatiable like fire, consuming your eve
till the witch of the morning tells them to leave
Noone knows where they go then,
which fortunes they weave
before you must arouse them, only you set them free

All kinds of creatures, invisible sights
Come in the night,, ride on your mind,
unfold their might
First an idea, then they are here
see what you find

 
No More War
There are fires burning
Everywhere the flames

A killing kind of yearning
The enemies have no names
Everywhere the passions
Aren't ruled by reason
First comes agression
Society's brain is freezing

Somebody said war's everywhere

Peace is but a lid
Over a boiling pot
Sometimes you can't cool it
Spilling what's too hot
Steaming 'round a violence
In the air to touch
Hatred can't be freedom
And both can be too much

Somebody said war's everywhere

People in the world
From so many different parts
Got different shapes and colours
But the same feelings in their hearts
All created equal,
Who's superior ?
Respect is what you can't steal
And what you can't fight for

Don't you make war come everywhere

Make No more war

 
No-one
When you think there's someone who turns dirt into gold
When you think he's able to make youth out of mould
You'd better watch your feelings he will maybe want to share
Starlight clone can't be his real shape, and he might not really care
and then
there's no-one, no-one there
- no-one at all

If he fails there is no-one, there may be no-one, maybe there's no-one
that you can lean on when you fall
There's maybe no-one, he may be no-one, there ain't just noone
that you can lean on - at all

If you believe in someone all dressed up like a king
If you're dazzled by his wit, & admire his diamond ring
He could turn invisible when he ain't got nothing to wear
And his colors melt in daylight, it's good if you don't really care
Cause
He will be no more there -it's really no-one there - no-one at all

In his robe is maybe no-one, there may be no-one, in there is no-one
that you can lean on when you fall
There's maybe no-one, he may be no-one, there ain't just noone
that you can lean on - at all

When I met him first time I thought I found it all
And he promised he would come whenever I would call
Sounded good, but he didn't mean it, like all the big talkers everywhere
I'm a woman, I can feel it that he doesn't really care
And he was just another no-one
I couln't lean on, when I fall -
he was Ijust another no-one
I couln't lean on - at all

 
Nobody's Fool
You tried to buy me for a bunch of lies
Something’s gone wrong with our lives
Can’t understand why you want to stay
There ain’t no reason and there ain’t no way

Don’t talk me into things, it’s in vain
Don’t get on my nerves, don’t drive me insane

Cause I’m nobody’s fool, I’m gonna keep my cool

Get out of here, we can’t go on, we can’t go on like that.

There were times when you came to me
Told me you wanted to talk to me
Wanted me to listen and to be
There and I tried to tell you what I could see

then you slam the door if I don’t agree
It seems you only like to fight with me

But: I’m nobody’s fool, I’m gonna keep my cool

Sort of feel we can’t go on, we can’t go on like that.

Staying around was just a waste of time
Your way of thinking is too far from mine
Though sometimes you even try to be nice
& once in a while pretend to ask my advice

Just to change my mind, I can tell
Why can’t you shut up and go to hell

See: I’m nobody’s fool, I’m gonna keep my cool. bad

O'Sullivan's John
O' Sullivan's John to the road you've gone
Far away from your native home
You've gone with the tinker's daughter
Far along the road to roam

Sullivan's John you won't stick it long
Till your belly will soon get slack
As you're going the road with a mighty load
And a tool-box on your back


I met Katy Coffee with her neat baby
Behind on her back strapped on
She Had an old ash plant in her hand
For to drive her donkey on

Enquiring at every farmer's house
As along the road she passed
It's Where could she find an oul pot for to mend
And where could she get an ass


There's a hairy ass fair in the County Clare
In a place they call Spancil Hill
Where me brother James got a rap of a hames
And poor Paddy they tried to kill

They loaded him up on a donkey and cart
While Kate and big Mary looked on
OH bad luck to the day that I went away
To join with the tinkers band

 
Over
Christmas is over, Cristmas is never again
Late in december you tried to tell me
you didn't like my lifestyle
All things are ending, don't you confuse me
my life ain't over, I'm feeling fine

Christmas is over, Cristmas is never again

Lasted a long time, years I will treasure
what'll come now I wonder
Ends are beginnings of a new pleasure
I'm looking out towards fun there

Christmas is over, Cristmas is never again
Our love is over, it'll come never again

I am not sad, I must accept what you say
Our time was good, and I'm grateful today
That is the way things are going some time
Felt it before that you're no longer mine
But I don't care because you don't own my heart
I will look forward to another new start

Cristmas is over, Christmas is never again
Our love is over, it'll come never again
Our love is over, you made it come to an end
Our love is over, your life is no longer mine
All things go over, they must go over in time

Paradise Birds
No more worries about tomorrow
How much care about the past
All our days - they are just borrowed
And nothing, yes, nothing's going to last

So
Don't you worry - can't you see
Life is just what it will be
But our time is ours forever
And that's eternity
And we are paradise birds - let's fly
Paradise birds (let's fly)
paradise birds - we want to fly


Won't tomorrow come and leave?
Rain my fall or sun may shine
You won't keep the world from turning
All you can change, really change - is your mind

So
Don't you worry - can't you see
Life is just what it will be
But our time is ours forever
And that's eternity
And we are paradise birds - let's fly
Paradise birds - let's fly


paradise birds - we want to fly

 
Peace On Earth
Christmas time is rolling ‘round
And Santa Clause is busy
There are wishes to fulfill
For Tim and Jean and Lizzy

But there’s a wish that everyone
Got deep inside their hearts
For all the people in the world
No matter near or far
And it’s: Peace on earth

The angels, stars, and Christmas trees
Reflect a glimpse of glory
They comfort even people who
Forgot the Christmas story

There is a wish that everyone
Got deep inside their hearts
For all the people in the world
No matter near or far

Should be Peace on earth

A little baby born that day
No superstar, no business,
Brought hope and love upon your way
And the freedonm then to choose these

So Santa, here is what we wish
Forever in our hearts:
Give all the people in the world
No matter near or far

Give them Peace on earth

 
People
Joe opened his hands and he saw his life
It was running down his fingers
like water
like ice-cream
like champaign
It was running down his hands
towards the day when it ends

Mae kept her eyes closed and imagined the nights
they were cruising through her brain
like pain
like lightning
like horses
they were cruising through her brain
to the point they come again

People - faking fading faces
People - facing fading fates

Jill went through the rain and she heard the world
It was floating through her body
like coffee
like marbles
like fear
It was floating through her veins
and she sensed what she could hear



Jack wasn't at home when he smelled the light
It was steaming roundhis eyes
like vapour
like laughter
like air
It was steaming round his nose
whirling smoke in overdose

People - faking fading faces
People - facing fading fates

Buzz threw out his watch and he felt the time
It was dripping on his feet
like fuel
like blood
like mold
It was dripping on his feet
faking what we need

 
Pictures Of A Dream
You're in another world
You're in your own true world
A world I cannot share
I cannot reach you there.
Life is too cruel for you
Sleep on, forget the truth
I can read in your eyes
There's wisdom in disguise

I want to share your pain
I want your love again
Want to read in your book of dreams
Don't send me out like this,
You're worth a million times
More than all other guys
Who never doubt or fear
Inside your eyes it's clear

Too short so great a time
When I could drink your wine
Some months could give me more
Than twenty years before.
Most perfect love affair
I will not cease to care
I learned to read your eyes
I know there are no lies

I can read in your eyes
And I see pictures out of a dream

You're in another world
You're in your own true worid
A world I cannot share
I cannot reach you there.
Life is too cruel for you
Sleep on, forget the truth
I can read in your eyes
There's wisdom in disguise

I want to share your pain
I want your love again
Want to read in your book of dreams
Don't send me out like this,
You're worth a million times
More than all other guys
Who never doubt or fear
Inside your eyes it's clear

Too short so great a time
When I could drink your wine
Some months could give me more
Than twenty years before.
Most perfect love affair
I will not cease to care
I learned to read your eyes
I know there are no lies
I can read in your eyes
And I see pictures out of a dream
Pictures, don't you wake up

Power Of Thoughts
Water is deep, but in case you know
How to walk on it you won't sink down below
Air is wide and far in the sky
If you trust in yourself you'll be able to fly
Power of thoughts -
Where ore you going to
Nothing Is ever lost

Time is a word you can't use anyway
You can tell me the time but you'll lose it this way
Freedom is just an idea In your mind
Catch it and see what is left behind
Meaning of thoughts
Where are you going to
Nothing is ever found

Hope tells you lies that you want to believe
And there's love of a hundred kinds for you grief
All the good and the evil - no more that ideas
Anything's right - and everything's near
Motor of thoughts
Where are we going to
Nothing is ever true

Raggle Taggle Gypsy
There were three old gypsies came to our hall door
They came brave and boldly-o,
The one sang high and the other sang low
The other sang a raggle taggle gypsy-o.

It was upstairs downstairs the lady went
She put on her suit of leather-o,
There was a cry from around the door
“She’s away wi’ the raggle taggle gypsy-o.”

It was late that night when the Lord came in
Enquiring for his lady-o,
The servant girl she said to the Lord
“She’s away wi’ the raggle taggle gypsy-o.”

“Then saddle for me my milk white steed
For my big horse is not speedy-o,
And I will ride till I seek my bride
She’s away wi’ the raggle taggle gypsy-o.”

Now he rode East, he rode West
He rode North and South also,
Till he came to a wide open plain,
There he spied his lady-o.

“How could you leave your goose featherbed
With your blankets strewn so comely-o?
How could you leave your newly wedded Lord
All for the raggle taggle gypsy-o?”

“What care I for my goose featherbed
Wi’ ma blankets strewn so comely-o,
Tonight I lie in a wide upon field
In the arms of a raggle taggle gypsy-o.”

“How could you leave your house and your land?
How could you leave your money-o?
How could you leave your only wedded Lord
All for a raggle taggle gypsy-o?”

“What care I for my house and my land?
What care I for my money-o?
I’d rather have a kiss from the yellow gypsy’s lips
I’m away wi’ the raggle taggle gypsy-o.”

Away wi’ the raggle taggle gypsy-o.

Red Is The Rose
Come over the hills my handsome Irish lad
Come over the hills to your darling
You choose the road love, and I'll make a vow
That I'll be your true love forever

Red is the rose that by yonder garden grows
And fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any
Down by Killarneys green woods we did stray
The moon and the stars they were shining
The moon shone it's rays on his locks of golden hair
And he swore he'd be my love forever

Red is the rose that by yonder garden grows
And fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any
It's not for the parting that my sister pains
It's not for the grief of my mother
It's all for the loss of my handsome Irish lad
Now my heart is broken forever

Red is the rose by yonder garden grows
And fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any.

And fair is the lily of the valley

But my love is fairer than any

 
Remote Control
People I watch in a busy street
They are all walking in some kind of sleep
Down by the river a band does play
But they cannot hear it, spellbound on their way

What if they woke up, what if they try
What if they live before they die
What if they find out, what if they see
there's nothing left for them to be -
or feel –

Hypnotized scene - people drawn downstream
An artist is painting what they seem to mean
Whenever he tries the colors turn to haze
& there is a hole where there should be a face

life can be easy, don't hesitate
it tells you to run, and you run
puppets on strings they operate
Serving the powers they hate till it's too late

What if they wake up, what if they try
What if they live before they die
What if they find out, what if they see
There's nothing left for them to be
What if they notice they missed their chance
Wasting their lives away in trance
What if they think of what they have sold
Feel kind of hungry, they can't live on gold

Why don't they wake up, why don't they try
Why can't they live before they die
Don't they remember what they can do
Seems it ain't true, it just cannot be true.

 
Restlessness Bandversion
Time travels on on the wings of my thoughts
Into a land that I once used to dream of
It's scary to float in a fantasy boat
But time travelled on to the future that's gone

Time travels on, it has never been true

I feel I ride on a gale on the ocean
There's beauty and sand, dead birds on a strand
Waves eat a land which I don't understand

How many times will I travel on
How many seasons more
How many seas will I have to sail
When will I find my shore

premonition's no friend, and memories haunting me

How many times will I travel on
How many seasons more
How many seas will I have to sail
When will I find my shore

her eyes were green
her hair was blue
and her skin aquamarine
She was wearing pearls and silver on her hands
I think she was a mermaid
but she could dance.

She was a queen and she let her hair float
around her shoulders and around my boat
Her streamline body
sparkling bright
whe she moved along the waves in the pale moonlight

One day at noon
she was singing a song
when the lord of the ocean
came along
He looked like her
except that he was male
with his watery shine and his fishy tail.

And that's the way it is meant to be
He fell in love with her
and he took her to the sea
Never again
I have seen them here
When the moon would dance on waves
I felt she's near

Lady of the river
dance with me
Lady of the river
cold and sweet

 
Running For Money
I remember a merry-go-round
and a flying horse on it moves up and down
lights flicker colors all over the fair
You think you get on, but it's going nowhere

and then I remember the day it was gone
and I remember the day it stopped turning
Then I didn't know what was going on
and I see the flames and the wooden horse burning
and all the colors were smoke in the weeping air

and I started running, running for money
and I have been running, running for life
and I have been running, running for everything
and I have been running,
only to find
All I ever needed was some love, Baby
All I ever wanted was some love, Baby
and now I think maybe, maybe I'll stay
I think maybe, maybe I'll stay
for a day

I remember the tunes full of joy
life in the hand of a child is a toy
Patterns on brocade wind over the land
and when life turns a fair, it all works, they pretend

and even the world must keep spinning, we learn
Moving in circles can be so amusing
Who is afraid of the day it'll burn
Feeling too dizzy can be so confusing
Just keep on running around to feel fine again

I had been running, running for money
and I have been running, running for life
and I have been running, running for everything
and I have been running,
only to find
All I ever needed was some love, Baby
All I ever wanted was some love, Baby
and I have been coming along your way, Baby
and I have been coming a long, long way, Baby
and I have been running too long a way
and now I think maybe, maybe I'll stay
I think maybe, maybe I'll stay - for a day
or two - or three - or maybe forever
Maybe, maybe, maybe for eternity.

Ruth
Ich seh in deine Augen
und dein Lcheln spricht
Den Schwung in deinem Gang
den hast du sonst doch nicht
Die Sterne funkeln es vom Himmel
Jeder sieht es gut
Dein Gesicht ein Spiegel
der zeigt: "Ruth, Ruth, Ruth."

In Regen tanzt du rum
Und singst im Bad sogar
Vergisst die Wohnungsschlssel
trinkst Wasser an der Bar
Du redest wie ein Wasserfall
drei Worte sind voll Glut
Dein Gesicht: ein Buch,
man liest da: "Ruth, Ruth, Ruth".

Du strahlst wie deine Schuhe
und dein Kinn ist glatt
Von Freiheit keine Rede
Deine Witze nicht mehr platt
Und du lsst die Dose
mit der schlechte Laune zu
Dein Gesicht: ein Fenster
man sieht: Ruth, Ruth, Ruth.

Du denkst nur an Ruth

Say No
The world is cold outside
Go light a fire
The days are short and dark
burn your desire

How can you grab it
the spiralling of time
and freedom's just a statue
without soul, but it looks fine

So it's time to worry
what matters anyway
time to hurry
and save the world another day

it's time to hold
to decide who's friend or foe
and find a way against the tide
it's time now to say no
just say no
there are times, you know,
when you just got to say
no
say no

Make sure you have a home
when safety leaves
abundance vanishing
no birds, no bees, no trees

What can you cling to
what hope is there to seize
when love becomes a sacrifice
to please the God of greed

So it's time to worry
what matters anyway
time to hurry
and save the world another day

The eyes of vanity
Behind facades they glow
The scorn for life and peace
is flooding all the roads

in a sea of violence
it's good to own a boat
And wealth is but a faith
in bubbles that explode

but you can say no
Say no

Say no to hatred - no to greed
No exploitation - no vanity
No contempt - no agression
no malice - no hypocrisy

no violence - no indifference
no arrogance or ruthlessness or force
no evil - no betrayal
no destruction - no locked doors
Say no

 
Scarborough Fair
Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme -
Remember me to one who lives there,
For he once was a true love of mine.

Tel him to make me a cambric shirt
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme -
Without any seam or needlework,
And then he'll be a true love of mine.

Tell him to wash it in yonder dry well
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme -
Where water never sprang nor drop of rain fell,
And then he'll be a true love of mine.

Tell him to dry it on younder thorne
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme -
Which never bore blossom since Adam was born,
And the he'll be a true love of mine.

Oh will you find me an acre of land
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme -
between the sea foam and the sea sand,
or never be a true love of mine.

Then will you plough it with a lamb's horn
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme -
and sow it all over with one peppercorn,
or never be a true love of mine.

And when you have done and finished your work
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme -
The come to me for your cambric shirt,
And you shall be a true love of mine.

 
Schneekönigin
Ihr Ohrring ist Metall und die Augen sind aus Eis
Eiszapfen im Haar und das Kleid ganz lang und weiß
Sie war so cool, ihr Körper, auch das Herz, die warn aus Schnee
Schönheit eingefroren, sie konnte nie vergehn.

Und sie will glitzern, tanzen auf dem Eis
glitzern - wenn die Wintersonne scheint
glitzern - durch den Schnee der fällt,
glitzern - macht das Winter-Mondlicht hell
Glitzern - glitzern
Sie war sein Sinn, seine Traum- Schneekönigin
Eisbeblümte Fenster, dunkle Welt in kaltem Trost
im Schloss, in dem sie wohnt, und der Nordwind kommt hinein
Eisbeblümte Fenster, dunkle Welt in kaltem Trost
Sie hatte Wünsche aus Kristall, und ihre Seele war ganz Frost

Und sie will glitzern, tanzen auf dem Eis

Er wollte sie nun finden, er wollt sie wirklich sehn
wo es auch sei, und wie auch immer, egal, es würde gehn
Der Funke wuchs, sein glühendes Herz, das zeigte ihm den Weg
Er wusste er kann's schaffen,und hatte keine Angst vor Schnee

Und sie will glitzern, tanzen auf dem Eis

Die Sehnsucht schließlichbrachte ihn zu ihr, nun stand sie da
Im Herzen seine Liebe brannte heiß, als er sie sah
Doch Wärme war nicht ihre Welt, zu heiß, sie schmolz dahin
Sie wurde schnell zur Pfütze, seine Füße standen drin
Sein Feuer ein Inferno nun, es tropfte dann das Schloss
die Glut ging aus, er schrie, und er ertrank, als es dann floss
blau scheinend und blass leuchtend steht da nun ein Eisberg bloß
Aus Eis die Ornamente, geheimnisvoll und groß

und er muss glitzern, brilliantenweiß
glitzern - wenn die Wintersonne scheint
glitzern - durch den Schnee der fällt,
glitzern - macht das Winter-Mondlicht hell

Sie wollte glitzern, tanzen auf dem Eis

See You Tonight
The world is drowning in the misty fields
Lights are floating on the river
The sky above is crimson and unreal
A breeze is singing, willows shiver
& then a vision creeps into my mind
& makes me see what's gonna be -
I know I want it
I want to see you tonight

And then a mood is crawling over me
I feel my goosebumps to the soles of my feet
It's not a dream, I know it's gonna be
The time when elves and reason meet
There is a fire in the sky above
It lights my soul, it's flashing love
& I surrender -
Want to be with you tonight

& there is life in everything around
& there is life in every moment
& there is life in all the sparkling sounds
& there is life, ist own endowment
Forgot my worries, it is life I found
& all the shadows lead the way - I am coming

Just let me be with you tonight
I want to see you tonight
Want to be with you tonight
I long to see you tonight
Gonna be with you tonight
I'm gonna see you tonight

 
Senses
One night a full moon came on shining down
A lady rode upon the rays
So transparent she stood upon the ground
and sparkled like the milky ways
and she said:
Why don't you believe in me
and you don't even know my name?
But she was made of haze, I had no chance to see
her in that shape again

Now I want to
find, find out what's behind
find, find out more
find, find what's behind
I want to find a hidden door

One day a lilly opened up ist head
A fairy sailed along ist smell
and iridescent like a summer breeze
Out of her eyes an opal dewdrop fell
and she breathed:
Why don't you believe in me
and you don't even know my name?
But she was made of scent, I had no chance to see
her in that shape again

There was a river giggling towards a lake
A wizard floated through ist tune
So magic hovering above the waves
He chanted some eternal June
and he mumbled:
Why don't you believe in me
and you don't even know my name?
But he was made of sound, I had no chance to see
him in that shape again.

Shadow Folk
Have you seen the light
deep in the lake deep in the waters
Casting shades around the site
to dance with Moonman's daughters

By the lake in the shade
magic's in the meadow
By the light of the night
magic's in the shadow
Shadow folks in shadow cloaks
magic folks forever
Shadow world, better world
peace and empathy matter.

The fairies light the stars and
torches made of dragon tallows
Casting shades a round the place
to send them fiction fellows

By the lake in the shade
magic's in the meadow
By the light of the night
magic's in the shadow
Shadow folks in shadow cloaks
magic folks forever
Shadow world, better world
peace and insight matter.

Have you seen the sorrow
in the gleaming eyes of devils
When in the fires of the dark
reality unravels

In the twilight of the flicker
midday views are shallow
Find a truth behind the trees
moods becoming mellow

Shadow world, shadow folk
shadow world forever

 
Silent Night - Stille Nacht

 
Sing Doch Mal Ein Lied
Am Morgen fllst du aus dem Bett der Traum war Chaos pur
Im Wasser brannten Brillis und am Himmel flog ne Uhr
'Ne Wand fiel ein dahinter stand die Freiheit mit 'nem Knecht
Der warf nach dir mit einem Haus

Dann:
Sing doch mal, sing doch mal sing doch mal ein Lied
Sing doch mal, sing doch mal und alle singen mit.
LaLaLa......

Im Traum da war 'ne Party beim Chef in seinem Haus
der feierte die Pleite und der schmiss euch alle raus
'Ne Mondfee sprach sodann zu dir du hast 3 Wnsche frei
Da fingst du an und dachtest nach da war der Traum vorbei.

Beim Baden gehen im ber-Flu da wurd der Flu ganz gro
das Land war weg, der Teufel nahm dich mit in seinem Flo.
Das Handy hattest du dabei die Freundin rief dich an
Und sagt, wie du geahnt hast, dass sie dich nicht leiden kann.

Am Automaten gab's kein Geld der zog die Karte ein
Heraus kam nur ein Flaschengeist, der schien kein Freund zu sein.
Du ranntest weg vor seinem Gift durch einen dunklen Wald
Da stand ein UFO auf dem Weg da bist du vorgeknallt.

Du flogst auf einem Phnix, doch die Hhe war nicht nett
der Absturz immer schneller und dann fielst du aus dem Bett
Vorbei der Traum, das Handy klingelt wirklich, das gibt Mut
Dann sing doch mal ein Lied und dann wird alles wieder gut.

 
Sing With Me
In a frosty night in winter an old witch came riding along
She stopped her broomstick when she saw me and said: Girl, you're so wrong.
You're wearing golden bracelets cause your eyes no longer shine
and collect dead things around yourself so you got something you can call "mine".

and she said: Ride, ride with me ride, ride, ride along
She said: Ride, ride, and fly with me just for fun, like in a song.

In a rainy night in springtime a wise wizard came rining along
He stopped his horse when he saw me and said: you need to be strong.
You rely on what you're seeing you depend on what you need
But the ground on which you're standing It's a mirage, it'll soon be gone

and he said: Dance, dance with me dance, dance, dance along
he said: move your feet, dance with me just for fun, like in a song.

In a hot summernight in a sleepless dream the devil emerged from a cloud
He was the cutest guy I had ever seen he was charming and wise, no doubt
I just couldn't detest him, he was human at all and he made me feel good for a while
I enjoyed him around, and his gifts, and his time and his body - why shouldn't I?

and he said: Dive, dive with me dive, dive, dive along
dive deeper than all seas just for fun, like in a song

In a stormy night in a howling fall there was a knock upon the wind
Then I opened up my empty hall and a handsome young man came in
He said his name was Jesus and on his shoulder sat a white dove
and he handed me his bundle he gave me peace, and his love.

and he said: Sing, sing with me Sing, sing, sing along just for fun, sing a song.

 
Skye Boat Song
Speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing,
Onward! the sailors cry;
Carry the lad that's born to be King
Over the sea to Skye.

Loud the winds howl, loud the waves roar,
Thunderclouds rend the air;
Baffled, our foes stand by the shore,
Follow they will not dare.

Though the waves leap, soft shall ye sleep,
Ocean's a royal bed.
Rocked in the deep, Flora will keep
Watch by your weary head.

Speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing,
Onward! the sailors cry;
Carry the lad that's born to be King
Over the sea to Skye.

Loud the winds howl, loud the waves roar,
Thunderclouds rend the air;
Baffled, our foes stand by the shore,
Follow they will not dare.

Many's the lad fought on that day,
Well the claymore could wield,
When the night came, silently lay
Dead on Culloden's field.

Speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing,
Onward! the sailors cry;
Carry the lad that's born to be King
Over the sea to Skye.

Loud the winds howl, loud the waves roar,
Thunderclouds rend the air;
Baffled, our foes stand by the shore,
Follow they will not dare.

Burned are their homes, exile and death
Scatter the loyal men;
Yet ere the sword cool in the sheath
Charlie will come again.

 
Snow Queen
She was wearing metal earrings and her eyes, they were all ice
Icicles were in her hair, her dress was long and white
So cool she was, her body and her heart were made of snow
Her beauty so deep frozen that it never seemed to go.


And she was sparkling, when she danced on ice
Sparkling - in the pale winter sunlight
Sparkling, through the falling snow
sparkling - in the winter moonglow
Sparkling -
She was his queen, the snow queen of his dream


She lived inside a castle, the northwind blowing through
with translucent walls in pale light blue
Before the ice-flowered windows dark world in white got lost
Her wishes of snow crystals, her soul it was all frost.

And she was sparkling, when she danced on ice �.


He decided to go anywhere to find her there
Where is was and how he should, he didn't even care
His love deep and longing, his heart was all aglow
He knew that he would make it, and he wasn't scared of snow.


One day he really saw her, so great was his desire
he fell in love at once, she set his soul on fire
But warmth was not her world, she started melting in the heat
And soon became a water pool around his feet.
the castle put the fire out as it came on dripping down
He felt like screaming and he frowned, but quickly he got drowned
And all you see there now is a mighty iceberg on the ground
Mysteriously gleaming blue with iceworks all around


and it is sparkling in the dance of snow
it is sparkling in the winter moonglow
sparkling - in the starry nights
sparkling - like the queen of ice


And she was sparkling, when she danced on ice �.

Soft Summer Rain
Look out of my window - the sky comes floating down
It is just a warm, grey day in May
Radioactive fallout is washed into the ground
A warning we should hove learned from yesterday

They say we can't afford it to try out something new
Ask again: When will they ever learn?

They cannot eat profit and poison our food
Ask again what they've done to the rain

Human life has limits in reality
You can't tell the future in advance
Only four dimensions of which you know but three
Don't give chance another deadly chance

Ch.: They said it was progress, they said is was safe
And they said they had been founding civilization in this way
They forgot they weren't perfect, that they. too, could make mistakes
Now they're building death a cradle, just a coffin full of waste
And it looks just like a little soft summer rain

 
Some Day
I remember
what you looked like in the past
I remember
nothing could last
I remember
our love became vast
but it's all right now
time passes fast

Some day
everything will go away

I remember
all the places I have seen
And I know
nothing's like it used to be
I remember
all that concrete being green
Silver fishes
in a sparkling stream

Some day
everything just went away
Some day
everything must go away

I foresee
freedom floating on a river
I foresee
in the cold winds wishes shiver
Dreams of smoke -
love is burnt to fuel your fears
Cyber hope
money will be made of tears
wisdom lies
on a slipway full of ice
And your stars in future skies
they are weapons, they look nice

 
Sometimes
Sometimes I sit in a corner and cry
Sometimes I like it, but I don't know why
Feeling alone, thinking of the past
of things that are gone, and of things that can't last

Sometimes -
some precious, marvellous, magic times.

Sometimes I sit in a corner and see
your face and your body right in front of me
Forgetting what we lacked, I recall what was fine
All things turn better when they're no longer mine

Sometimes -
some precious, marvellous, magic times.

Now I don't want to meet you, you must have grown old
Don't wreck my dreaming or turn my memories cold
Life ain't worth a damn without wishes any more
What's the use of hearts that have never been sore

Sometimes I sit in a corner and cry
It could have been different, but there's no reason why
Sometimes I find that my memory's grown cold
and then I get up and I feel I've grown old.

Sometimes -
some precious, marvellous, magic times.

Spinning
Time is spinning like my head, it's moving round and round
round and round it moves, and up and down

Life is spinning like my time, it's moving round and round
round and round it goes and up and down

Time, time, where've you gone, I won't come along
Time, where have you gone - Leave me alone


The past is spinning in my mind, it's moving round and round
round and round it moves, and up and down

Where have all the flowers gone and the memories of some
round and round they move and up and down

Time, time, where've you gone, I won't come along
Time, where have you gone - Leave me alone


My brain is spinning like my life, moving round and round
Up and down, left and right, round and round and nowhere

All the world a spinning wheel, turning round and round
Messy threads are on the ground and dance for me

Will I ever pick them up and weave a net for fortune
that's turned me down and turned around to spin its own ideas

Will they wrap their tentacles around eternity
I know what they are made of, but what is their destiny


Time,time, I know you've gone but I won't come along
Time, where have you gone - Leave me alone

Spinnrad
Auf und ab und hin und her, rundherum im Kreis
Wie ein Spinnrad dreht sie sich, die Zeit
Rauf und runter, hin und her, alles muss vergehn
Wie die Welt, so muss die Zeit sich drehn.

Zeit, wo willst du hin, irgendwo wo ich nicht bin
Zeit, egal wohin, geh mir aus dem Sinn
Zeit, du musst dich drehn, spinn doch da wo ich nicht bin
Zeit, du musst vergehn - Lass mich hier stehn

Alle Zeit, ob nah, ob weit, Gegenwart, Vergangenheit
geht vorbei und bleibt doch in mir drin
Sag mir wo die Blumen sind - aus den Augen, noch im Sinn
irgendwo, wo ich nun nicht mehr bin

Immer schneller mit mehr Schwung muss das Rad sich drehn
Spinnt Fden aus Erinnerung und Seide aus Ideen
Rauf und runter und im Kreis herum und hin und her
Sie tanzen einen Tanz fr mich, es werden immer mehr
Wird' ich sie entwirren um ein Netz daraus zu weben,
das Glck zu fangen und zu zwingen, mir noch was zu geben?
Werrden sie Tentakeln und umfassen Ewigkeit?
Ich weiss woraus sie sind, sie fngt sich selber so, die Zeit.

 
Spirits
Where are the gods you used to know
Where are the gods for life
Where have they gone, so far, so low,
Don't feel their comfort, power, or drive

Where are the gods of time and year
Where are the ones from youth
If they are gone, you won't stay here
They took along the ease, the truth

Cry, just cry
And you might get a little closer by

Where is the magic of the trees
Or of the mighty mountains
Where are the gods of deep blue seas
Do you miss their whisper in the fountains

Where are the gods of a lonely night
Where are the gods of passion
Where are the ones of summer moonlight
Where is the soothing good agression

Cry, just cry
And you might get a little closer by

Where are the gods that made love grow
Where are those of your dreams
Waiting for you, so go, just go
Leavev what you got and follow a starbeam

Cry, just cry And you might get a little closer by

 
Spring For Love
There’s a time for everything
And a time for nothing
There’s a time to relax
And a time for stress
A time for socializing
And another for loneliness
There’s a time for grief
And a time to leave


But one thing is for sure
Spring time is for love



There are seasons for everything
And seasons for nothing
Seasons for people
And seasons for the Gods
Seasons for sleeping
And sesons for fun
Seasons for staying
and seasons to run

But one thing is for sure
Spring time is for love



There are times for everybody
There are times nobody wants
There are seasons for silence
there are times to be sad
seasons to remember
and a time to forget
a time for joy
and maybe later to regret


But one thing is for sure
Spring time is for love


There’s a time to think things over,
And a time to change
Times to be happy
And times that are strange
A time to laugh
and a time to cry
a time to forget
and a time to ask why

But one thing is for sure
Spring time is for love

But one thing is for sure
It must be spring for love
Spring for love

 
Stoned On Your Presence
Some folks need coffee in the morning to wake up
Some hide their fears under make-up
Some can stop thinking just because they lost hope
Some can't feel hi without some kind of dope

But I can be...
.....stoned on your presence, don't need anything more
I am stoned on your presence, like so often before
I am stoned on your presence, every day, every night
& when you are near everything seems all right

Stoned on your presence, I'm so high when you're near
Stoned on your presence, I forget what I fear
& it's easy -
easy to find what I'm searching.

Last night I had a dream before I woke up
I was with you before we broke up
& I felt so good when I was with you
& I'm just tired of being lonely & blue

I want to be...
.....stoned on your presence, don't need anything more
I am stoned on your presence, like so often before
I am stoned on your presence, every day, every night
& when you are near everything seems all right

Stoned on your presence, I'm so high when you're near
Stoned on your presence, I forget what I fear
& it's easy -
easy to find what I'm searching.

When I am with you I just hate time
when noone wants you you can always be mine
when we make love I just forget what's around
I feel I'm drifting away & I don't really care if I might drown

'Cause I am...
.....stoned on your presence, don't need anything more
I am stoned on your presence, like so often before
I am stoned on your presence, every day, every night
& when you are near everything seems all right

Stoned on your presence, I'm so high when you're near
Stoned on your presence, I forget what I fear
& it's easy -easy to find what I'm searching.

 
Summer
Summertime coming
with the long dusty days
Everyone sweating
Time to laze
Summertime rolling round
all the moments get slow
holiday feeling
Time to doze

and I enjoy it 'cause I can
sleep out in the sun when I want it
in summer

Summer is coming
with the hot starry nights
and in case you can't sleep you see
the glowworms' lights
Summertime's rolling round
with a shimmering heat
gnats & flies dancing
in the shade of the cherry trees

and I enjoy it 'cause I can
sleep out in the sun when I want it
in summer
sit out in the sun when I want it in summer

Summertime coming
Pools are all full of folks
Everyone's going out
queues of cars on the roads

But I ain't leaving 'cause I can
sleep out in the sun when I want it
in summer
sit out in the sun when I want it
in summer
sleep out in the sun when I want it in summer

 
Summer Storm
Big dark clouds are flying around
rain starts falling on the ground
winds caress the swaying trees
they dance and sing and clap their leaves

the pubs get full and the streets deserted
and inside the folks are singing, I heard it

they go: nanananananananana...
'cause the rain is warm like the summer wind
the rain is warm in a summer storm.

The rhythm of the thunder beats
like a rocksong through the empty streets
and the wind is wailing a tune of trance
on the edges of the garden fence

in the flashlight-show of the thunderstorm
the shadow-ghosts appear and they dance along.

they go: nanananananananana...
'cause the rain is warm like the summer wind
the rain is warm in a summer storm.

In a summer storm all the world is swinging
in a summer storm every thing is singing
All of nature is rocking and the mood is good
and the rain is just warm in a summer storm

 
Summernight Dream
High on a cloud in a dizzy night
flying up high to the sun
Moonlight around, just a little light
Misery's gone, it is gone

Floating on air with a scary delight
Pale is the darkness above
Silverish world, there's no wrong or right
flowing upon streams of love

What do you mean when you say you are free
Sail on a cloud through eternity
in a summernight dream
Why can't it be, why can't it be real
it's a summernight dream

There on a cloud in a dizzy hight
liberty leading the way
Only a word, there 's no rest in insight
fever unknown to the day

Called by the sky, hear a beatiful sound
Voices of sirens & lyres
dangerous charm of strange spirits around
flow in a stream of desires

What do you mean when you say you are free
Sail on a cloud through eternity
summernight dream
Why can't it be, why can't it be real
it's a summernight dream

 
Summerwind
Summerwind
Summerday
Summertime
Stay, just stay

Summer breeze
Summer trees
Summer meadows
Summer shadows

I don't know what's gonna be in fall
I'm afraid I just don't want it all
I don't really want to think of wintertime rolling round

Summer joy
Summer boy
I got you I want to keep you
You're my toy

Summer moon gonna shine
Summer wine
Summer love
Just stay mine

Summer light
Summer night
Summer's right
Summer's bright
Summerboy stay
longer than a summer day
Summerwind
Summer day
Summertime
stay, just stay

 
Swaying
I was tired in the morning
and I tried to sleep
When all kinds of thoughts would haunt me
Old desires growing deep
and my body seemed to reach for you
No other love was such
We were dancing on a vision
I'm still loving you too much

I could feel your body swaying
in the rhythm of your heartbeat
I could feel your body swaying

I was tired in the morning
I went back to bed
Then I closed my eyes
I remembered what we had
I imagined you were close to me
thought I felt your touch
and I cannot really help it
I'm still loving you too much

I was with you in the morning
Fancied what had been
Felt your hair caress my shoulder
and your hands upon my skin
Satifaction can be absolute
Thrills I try to clutch
I can't give you up like smoking
I'm still loving you too much

Thank You
You taught me love
unveiled my sadness
made me see dignity
filled me with gladness

You could read my thoughts
understood without a word
Were forgiving and sensitive
cuddly, cute, and alert

I say Thanks for your ways
thanks for those days
Rest in peace, in my mind, in your dreams
Thanks for your ways,
your appreciation
Rest in peace, whatever that means

Thanks for all …

 
The Ballad Of Stewball
You Gentlemen Sportsmen
I pray listen all
I'll sing you a song
in the praise of Stewball

And how they came over
you shall understand
By one Squire Irvine
the Mell of our land.

500 bright guineas
on the plains of Kildare
I'll bet upon, Sportsmen,
that bonny-grey mare

Stewball hearing the wager,
the wager was laid
He said loving master,
its don't be afraid.

For on my side thou'st laid
thousands of pounds
I'll rig in thy castle
a fine mass of gold.

Squire Irvine he smiled,
and thus he did say,
You gentlemen-sportsmen
to-morrow's the day

Your saddles and bridles,
and horses prepare,
For we will away
to the plains of Kildare.

The day being come,
& the horses bro't out,
Squire Irvine he order'd
his rider to mount.

All the people then went
to see them go round
They swore in their hearts
he ne'er touch'd the ground.

And as they were riding
this was the discourse
The grey mare will never
touch this horse.

O, loving kind rider
come tell unto me,
How far is the grey mare
behind you said he...

O loving master
you bear a great smile,
Grey mare is behind me
a large English mile

For in this country
I was ne'er seen before
Thou hast won the race
& broken lord Gore.

 
The Curragh Of Kildare
The winter it has passed
And the summer's come at last
The small birds are singing in the trees
And their little hearts are glad
Ah, but mine is very sad
Since my true love is far away from me

And straight I will repair
To the Curragh of Kildare
For it's there I'll finds tidings of my dear

The rose upon the briar
And the clouds that float so high
Bring joy to the linnet and the bee
And their little hearts are blessed
But mine can know no rest
Since my true love is far away from me

All you who are in love
Aye and cannot it remove
I pity the pain that you endure
For experience lets me know
That your hearts are filled with woe
It's a woe that no mortal can cure

 
The Gypsy
There were three old gypsies came to our hall door
They came brave and boldly-o,
The one sang high and the other sang low
The other sang a raggle taggle gypsy-o.

It was upstairs downstairs the lady went
She put on her suit of leather-o,
There was a cry from around the door
“She’s away wi’ the raggle taggle gypsy-o.”

It was late that night when the Lord came in
Enquiring for his lady-o,
The servant girl she said to the Lord
“She’s away wi’ the raggle taggle gypsy-o.”

“Then saddle for me my milk white steed
For my big horse is not speedy-o,
And I will ride till I seek my bride
She’s away wi’ the raggle taggle gypsy-o.”

Now he rode East, he rode West
He rode North and South also,
Till he came to a wide open plain,
There he spied his lady-o.

“How could you leave your goose featherbed
With your blankets strewn so comely-o?
How could you leave your newly wedded Lord
All for the raggle taggle gypsy-o?”

“What care I for my goose featherbed
Wi’ ma blankets strewn so comely-o,
Tonight I lie in a wide upon field
In the arms of a raggle taggle gypsy-o.”

“How could you leave your house and your land?
How could you leave your money-o?
How could you leave your only wedded Lord
All for a raggle taggle gypsy-o?”

“What care I for my house and my land?
What care I for my money-o?
I’d rather have a kiss from the yellow gypsy’s lips
I’m away wi’ the raggle taggle gypsy-o.”

Away wi’ the raggle taggle gypsy-o.

 
The Handsome Cabin Boy
It's of a pretty female
As you may understand.
Her mind it went off rambling
into some foreign land,
She dressed herself in manly clothes,
Or so it does appear,
And she hired with a captain
To serve him for a year.

The captain's wife sh'd been on board,
She seemed in great joy
To think the captain had engaged
Such a handsome cabin boy,
That now and then she'd fling him a kiss,
And she would have liked to toy,
But 'the captain found out the secret
Of the handsome cabin boy.

Her cheeks they were like roses red
And her hair lay in a curl.
The sailors often smiled and said
she looked just like a girl.
But eating of the captain's biscuits
Her colour did destroy,
And the waist did swell of pretty Nell,
The handsome cabin boy.

It was in the bay of Biscay
Our goddamn ship did plow.
One night among the sailors
Was a fearful scurrying row.
They tumbled from their hammocks
For their sleep it did destroy,
And they swore about the groaning
Of the handsome cabin boy.

"Oh doctor, dear, oh doctor,"
The cabin boy did cry.
"My time has come, I am undone,
And surely I will die."
The doctor come a-runnin'
And a-smilin' at the fun.
To think a sailor lad should have
A daughter or a son.

The sailors when they saw the joke
They all did stand and stare.
The child belonged to none of them,
They solemnly did swear.
The captain's wife, she said to him,
"My dear, I wish you joy,
For 'tis either you or me's betrayed
The handsome cabin boy!"

Now each man take your tot of rum
And drink success to trade,
And likewise to the cabin boy
That was neither man nor maid.
Here's hoping the wars don't rise again
Our sailors to destroy,
And here's hoping for a jolly lot more
like the handsome cabin boy

The Irish Rover
On the fourth of July eighteen hundred and six
We set sail from the sweet cove of Cork
We were sailing away with a cargo of bricks
For the grand city hall in New York
'Twas a wonderful craft, she was rigged fore-and-aft
And oh, how the wild winds drove her.
She'd got several blasts, she'd twenty-seven masts
And we called her the Irish Rover.

We had one million bales of the best Sligo rags
We had two million barrels of stones
We had three million sides of old blind horses hides,
We had four million barrels of bones.
We had five million hogs, we had six million dogs,
Seven million barrels of porter.
We had eight million bails of old nanny goats' tails,
In the hold of the Irish Rover.

There was awl Mickey Coote who played hard on his flute
When the ladies lined up for his set
He was tootin' with skill for each sparkling quadrille
Though the dancers were fluther'd and bet
With his sparse witty talk he was cock of the walk
As he rolled the dames under and over
They all knew at a glance when he took up his stance
And he sailed in the Irish Rover

There was Barney McGee from the banks of the Lee,
There was Hogan from County Tyrone
There was Jimmy McGurk who was scarred stiff of work
And a man from Westmeath called Malone
There was Slugger O'Toole who was drunk as a rule
And fighting Bill Tracey from Dover
And your man Mick McCann from the banks of the Bann
Was the skipper of the Irish Rover

We had sailed seven years when the measles broke out
And the ship lost it's way in a fog.
And that whale of the crew was reduced down to two,
Just meself and the captain's old dog.
Then the ship struck a rock, oh Lord what a shock
The bulkhead was turned right over
Turned nine times around, and the poor dog was drowned
I'm the last of the Irish Rover

 
The Lambs On The Green Hills
The lambs on the green hills, they sport and they play
And many strawberries grow round the salt sea,
How sad is my heart when my love is away
How many's the ship sails the ocean.

The bride and bride's party to church they did go,
The bride she rode foremost, she bears the best show,
But I followed after with my heart full of woe
To see my love wed to another.

The first place I saw her was in the church stand
Gold rings on her finger and her love by the hand,
Says I, my wee lassie, I will be the man
Although you are wed to another.

The next place I saw her was on the way home,
I rode on before her, not knowing where to roam.
Says I, my wee lassie, I'll be by your side
Although you are wed to another.

Stop, stop, says the groomsman, till I speak a word
Will you venture your life on the point of my sword,
For courtin' so slowly you've lost this fair maid
So, be gone for you'll never enjoy her.

O make now my grave, both large, wide and deep
And sprinkle it over with flowers so sweet,
And lay me down in it to take my last sleep,
For that's the best way to forget her.

The Leaving Of Liverpool
Fare thee well to Prince's Landing Stage
River Mersey, fare thee well
Well I am bound for California
A place that I know right well

So fare thee well, my own true love
When I return united we will be
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me
But my darling when I think of thee

Oh I am boarding a yankee sailing ship
Davy Crockett is her name
And Burgess is the captain of her
And they say that she's a floatin' shame

The sun is on the harbor, love
And I wish that I could remain
Because I know it will be some long long time
Before I see you again

 
The Merman
I went down to the ocean in the late afternoon
I sat down by the water which reflected the moon
It was black under mist and I couldn't look through
Just like ink flowing over the white of my shoes
It was always in motion and always alike
There was no chance for changes to give light to the night
Nothing would happen, and it tortured my mind
and while I was waiting I was drowning in time

I was watching the water foreboding some fear
When I saw a cute little green figure appear
His hair was long and blue, and when I looked in his eyes
I could see tenthousand stories from a thousand years passing by
He was wearing a shirt, made of shells and of weeds
and shyly he smiled, that I had to be pleased
His large hand reached for mine, and he said: follow me
I will show you what people are too blind to see

And the merman and I, we then came to a town
where the people were dead, but walking around
They did not look at us, nor back, nor ahead,
and apparently they didn't even feel bad
and the merman explained: "Where they are they will stay
for they have never learned how to find a new way
Some folks don't feel when they drown, it is strange,
and in their sunken world they all wait for a change

I wanted to waste my time watching the water at the seaside
Waiting for changes

 
The Rainbow
Whenever life is grey
I can see a rainbow
& through the rainy day
the colored lights flow

there it is dry
I wonder why
I got to stay

How can I get there, tell me why can't I
travel above the world upon my sigh

When winds are getting rough
I can see the birds fly
they are so free & tough
& sailing so high

passing me by
far in the sky
they never die

How can I leave reality behind
In sparkling colors find my peace of mind

Feel my thoughts spread their wings
lift me above
the rainbow's colored rings
to winds of love

Freedom around
I hear the sound
of secret things

Higher than kings & higher than I seem
Floating through steam towards a land of dream

Floating through steam towards a land of dream

 
The Rambler Fom Clare
The first of my journeys it is very well known
I first made my way to the County Tyrone
All the young men and maidens they used me well there
And they called me the stranger and the rambler from Clare

It was there I enlisted in the town called Fermoy
But with too many masters I could not comply
I deserted one morning, the truth to declare
And for Limerick city steps the rambler from Clare

But while a deserter myself lay concealed
I was taken and brought to the town of Rathkeale
And from there to headquarters I soon did repair
And now the jail is the lodgings of the rambler from Clare

I took off my cap and I made a low bow
In the hopes that the sergeant might pardon me now
But the pardon he gave me 'twas hard and severe
It was, Bind him, confine him, he's the rambler from Clare

It was then the United men they came on the town
They attacked and they conquered with fame and renown
The jail they broke open and they rescued me there
And they made full commander of the rambler from Clare

But now that I'm titled a United man
No more can I stay in my own native land
But away to Americay I must repair
And must leave all the friends of the rambler from Clare

So farewell to my comrades where'er you may be
Likewise to my sweetheart sweet Sally Magee
For the sails they're all set and the wind it blows fair
He's gone, God be with him, he's the rambler from Clare

 
The Spanish Lady
As I came down through Dublin City
At the hour of twelve at night
Who should I see but the Spanish lady
Washing her feet by candlelight
First she washed them, then she dried them
Over a fire of amber coal
In all my life I ne'er did see
A maid so sweet about the sole

Whack for the toora loora laddy
Whack for the toora loora lay
Whack for the toora loora laddy
Whack for the toora loora lay

As I came back through Dublin City
At the hour of half past eight
Who should I spy but the Spanish lady
Brushing her hair in the broad daylight
First she tossed it, then she brushed it
On her lap was a silver comb
In all my life I ne'er did see
A maid so fair since I did roam

As I went back through Dublin City
As the sun began to set
Who should I spy but the Spanish lady
Catching a moth in a golden net
When she saw me, then she fled me
Lifting her petticoat over her knee
In all my life I ne'er did see
A maid so shy as the Spanish lady

I've wandered north and I've wandered south
through Stoneybatter and Patrick's Close
Up and around by the Gloucester Diamond Round by Napper Tandy's house
Old age had laid her hand on me
Cold as fire of ashey coalsv But were is the lovely Spanish Lady, neat and sweet about the soul.

 
The Times Are Always New
Do you believe in honesty
Do you believe in lies
Do you believe that you ore free
Do you think you are wise
Do you live in a world of ease
Or in a world of cries
And can there be eternal peace
Or only war in disguise
It's a new time coming
With the feeling right back inside
A new time coming - all the time

Do you believe in fantasy
Do you find life in sighs
Do you believe in wishes
And the lights in children's eyes
Do you find joy in golden leaves
Do you listen to the breeze
Do you tell the age old trees
The truth, whatever it is

It's a new time coming
With the feeling right back inside
A new time coming - all the time

The poets of the former times
They used to have insights
And now they're but complaining
'bout nothing they can find
Do you care or never mind
Do you know what to do
Do you sometimes blame yourself
For the times are always new
and it's a new time coming
for:
The times are always new
Do you put up with the old or see
that the times are always new

 
The Water Is Wide
The water is wide, I can't cross o'er
Neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I

A ship there is and she sails the sea
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I know not if I sink or swim

I leaned my back against an oak
Thinking it was a mighty tree
But first it bent and then it broke
So did my love prove false to me

I reached my finger into some soft bush
Thinking the fairest flower to find
I pricked my finger to the bone
And left the fairest flower behind

Oh love be handsome and love be kind
A sparkling jewel when first it is new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like the morning dew

Must I go bound while you go free
Must I love a man who won't love me
Must I be born with so little art
As to love a man who'll break my heart

When cockle shells turn silver bells
Then will my love come back to me
When roses bloom in winter's gloom
Then will my love return to me

 
The Water Is Wide (a capella)
The water is wide, I can't cross o'er
Neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I

A ship there is and she sails the sea
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I know not if I sink or swim

I leaned my back against an oak
Thinking it was a mighty tree
But first it bent and then it broke
So did my love prove false to me

I reached my finger into some soft bush
Thinking the fairest flower to find
I pricked my finger to the bone
And left the fairest flower behind

Oh love be handsome and love be kind
A sparkling jewel when first it is new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like the morning dew

Must I go bound while you go free
Must I love a man who won't love me
Must I be born with so little art
As to love a man who'll break my heart

When cockle shells turn silver bells
Then will my love come back to me
When roses bloom in winter's gloom
Then will my love return to me

 
The Wild Rover
I've been a wild rover for many's the year
I've spent all me money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the wild rover no more

And it's No, Nay, never,
No, nay never no more
Will I play the wild rover,
No never no more

I went in to an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady me money was spent
I asked her for credit, she answered me nay
Such a customer as you I can have any day

I took up from my pocket, ten sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She says "I have whiskeys and wines of the best
And the words that you told me were only in jest"

I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done
And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son
And, when they've caressed me as oft times before
I never will play the wild rover no more

 
The Wind Has Died
Sometimes you feel
you want to stay no more
Then you decide
to open up your door
Fog - all around
upon the ground
Down, down you step,
there's no way to be found

And the wind
used to caress me
And to tell me secret lies
And the wind
which took me higher
it has gone -
has it died? - Has it died?

Sometimes you feel
you want to be back home
See the door closed
and you go on to roam
Where your heart is -
that is home
But pain blew it nowhere,
and there it's all alone

 
They'll Never Get Their Man
Oh it's easy knowing the weavers when they come into town
With their long yellow hair and their stockings hanging down
And their aprons tied afore them and their scissors in their hands
It's easy knowing the weavers for they'll never get their man
Oh they'll never get their man, oh they'll never get their man
It's easy knowing the weavers for they'll never get their man

And it's easy knowing the doffers when they come into town
With their long ragged hair and their stockings hanging down
And their aprons tied afore them and their scissors in their hands
It's easy knowing the doffers for they'll never get their man
Oh they'll never get their man, oh they'll never get their man
It's easy knowing the doffers for they'll never get their man

Oh it's easy knowing the spinners when they come into town
With their old ragged clothes and their weft all hanging down
And their aprons tied afore them and their scissors in their hands
It's easy knowing the spinners for they'll never get their man
Oh they'll never get their man, oh they'll never get their man
It's easy knowing the spinners for they'll never get their man

And it's easy knowing the fleurers when they come into town
With their long muzzled chins and their petticoats hanging down
And their aprons tied afore them and their scissors in their hands
It's easy knowing the fleurers for they'll always get their man
Oh they'll always get their man, oh they'll always get their man
It's easy knowing the fleurers for they'll always get their man

 
Think!
(Info: The song is over 13 minutes long and contains three long soli, which were shortened for the demo-clip.)

(Info: Der Song ist über 13 min lang und enthält 3 lange Soli, Demo-Clip stark gekürzt.)

I don't know what I love
But I know what I hate
It's never too early
And never too late
To think about what to think
Think about what to think

You want much money?
I don't want that
You like having big dinners
It'll make you too fat
You want a new car?
Can't be important
You like travelling far?
Don't think that's what I want.

You want to be rich?
It's not what I wait for
You like to be lazy?
Can't be what I work for
You want a big house?
I don't need that
You'd like to raise a bunch of kids?
It might not be too bad.

You want a color TV?
Doesn't mean a thing to me
You like buying things?
Can't satify me
You want to call them your own?
No point I can see
You like sitting at home?
I don't think you are free

You want to be happy?
I don't think you know the way
You like to believe
what the others say
You want confidence
But it doesn't make sense
Cause you cannot rely
on yourself nor your friends

You say you want life
You don't know what it means
You say you want love
but don't mnow what it is
You like echoing things
which you have been told
You imagine feelins
but your heart is so cold

You say you want rights
I wonder why
You say you want a future
It'll soon be gone by
You like being good
I'm not in the right mood
You want to buy safety
the same way you buy food

 
Thoughts Reading The News
You know what I read in Time Magazine
I read about wars where I'd never been
I read a respectable way was thought to be
to respond to an offence militarily

Thoughts reading the news

I read that positions
of power in conflicts
were supposed to be
the only solutions

I read about armor and fire and blood
about orphans crying and people dying
I read about euphoria, passion, and hate,
canon fodder, war’s said to be great

Thoughts reading the news

And I looked at the pictures,
drowning in ruins
pieces of dead bodies
smoke in the air

You know what I saw
in Time Magazine
I saw hints of hell,
and it worked, as I’ve seen

I looked at the pictures of soldiers in arms
in the shadow of their helmets their eyes do glance
they don’t seem to triumph or like what they’ve done
they don’t seem to think it’s great that they won

they look grim and stubborn and they cannot smile
they cannot be happy and they dare not die

 
Time Goes Back
When the daylights fade - time goes back
When memories cast their shade - I feel I lack
What I've been missing ever since
And now I fear I might forget it

When satisfaction lies in being dissatisfied
It's good to know the waves around the good old days
Are only sleeping, until a storm
wakes them up again, & then

It'll blow out the brains of intelligent systems
It'll scatter all matters, it'll shrink every distance
It'll weigh all the evil, it'll heap up the stars
Only freedom escapes when kept behind bars

When the lights are low & time takes rest

It's good to say hello to a dear guest
considered dead and gone, but there he is
to make me see life can't be measured

It is getting late - there's another dream
Another date - another scream
Waking another world inside eternity
& outside minds or feelings

It'll batter your faith in intelligent systems
It'll shatter the glamour of virtual existence
It'll blow up the truth, it'll breathe out new life
It'll carry you back to make you survive

& the wave it'll drive, it can wash, it can drown
it is huge, it is mighty, takes you high, takes you down
There'll be nothing to stop it, no way to escape
No way to decide things, & no way to stay
You'll get carried away.......

 
Time Is A River
Tell me what will the new year bring, will it be just pain and sorrow?

Tell me if it's joy and love. What is going to be tomorrow?

Tell me what'll the future bring, our present is just borrowed.

Summer will come after spring. Tell me what will be tomorrow.

Time is a river, it carries me along

Hear the fish in the water sing me a song.

Years can be oceans, and a season is a lake

Deep or shallow, rough or mellow, anything to take.

Flowers are blooming in the snow, there's harmony in thunder.

Wine and wisdom make them grow in the grey clouds and down under.

I don't care what the season is as long as I'm one with it,

First or last don't make sense in a timeless world, let's have it all at once.

Wintertime lover, will you be here in spring?

Will the lark in the meadow carry a ring?

Summertime lover, will you be here in fall?

Late or early have no meaning, let's Just have it all.

Good night, sleep well, winter tale, meet you in the morning.

Next time we are born again, lulled to dreaming of summer,

Told by raindrops on the roof, sung by storms and fairies:

Pale is your ice and you fake delight and your crystal spirit's feeble.

Tender your power, power of words told,

Resting on bridges over the cold.

Sleep well, you nightmares, power of chains In trance -

See the daylight in the night, all the elves wake up and dance.

Ride on spring's humming till it'll change its tune

Leave out what is coming, it's coming too soon.

 

To Be Or Not To Be
To be - or not to be? What is it all about
Nuclear warheads
Who's evil? And who is a sorehead?
It's not about black, or red, or yellow
It's about people, they want peace

So many faces in my mind, so many actions, too
They speak of colors, but the're blind, it can't be really true
What is it all about
Nuclear warheads
Who's evil? And who is a sorehead?
It's not about black, or red, or yellow
It's about people, they want peace

The world it only seems a mess, I'm scared of what I see
Today we raise tomorrow's choices - to be, or not to be?
What is it all about
Nuclear warheads
To threaten political soreheads?
It can't be all black, or white, or grey
Or maybe important, anyway

The answer isn't hope or love, maybe not even peace
It isn't carried by a dove, not whispered through the trees
What is it all about

 
Tomorrow May Never Be The Same
We must go through our lives
On a road, once narrow, once wide
With an aim we don't know and we don't see
We don't know how long it is
Can't foresee its woe or bliss
We don't know where the end of it will be

Along our time we go
speeding fast or going slow
We are driven towards an unknown land
We must reach our final home
and we'll go there all alone
On a path, steep or straight or winding in bends

It is all we know for certain
It is all we know for sure
Sometimes there's no final curtain
Sometimes too much to endure
Then there's nothing else to long for
Nothing left that we might need
Maybe nothing to be strong for
Nowhere the old road will lead
Maybe pain and fear and sorrow,there's a way to flee tomorrow

So let the living mourn
When the dying are reborn
We can't live in a world that's not our own
Life is borrowed and is lent
And must be returned in the end
To the queens of eternity's mighty throne

See the beauties on the way, try to see them every day
For tomorrow we might no longer stay

 
Traum
In einem Traum hab ich dich gesehn
Kann's nicht vergessen und nicht verstehn
Will nicht mehr warten, ich will mit dir gehen
Warst du ein Trugbild, nur eine Idee?

Du kamst aus einer anderen Zeit
Vielleicht ist sie alt, vielleicht ist sie bald
Alles darin ist Magie und macht Sinn
Ich hre sie rufen, wie komm ich dahin?

In diesen Traum will ich zurck
Ich muss dich suchen, vielleicht hab ich Glck
Um mich herum soll nichts weiter sein
Finde ich dich oder bleib ich allein?

Wie kann ich kommen, wie kann es sein
Wird mein Verlangen mir Flgel verleihn
Dann kann ich fliegen, weit und ganz hoch
Du hast mich berhrt und ich weiss nicht, wieso.

Wie kann ich kommen, wie kann es sein
Wird mein Verlangen mir Flgel verleihn
Dann kann ich fliegen, weit und ganz hoch
Du hast mich berhrt und ich weiss nicht, wieso.
Ich weiss ich kann fliegen, weit und hoch

Ups And Downs
When you are down - feeling low
looking around - steep ways to go
There are mountains & valleys
it's always going uo & down
highways or alleys
you may go straight & then you way turn round, round

after each summer there's wintertime coming behind
after the rain there is sunshine coming again
Yeah, after the summer there's wintertime coming
after the rain there is sunshine again
when you're down the only way to go on is going up -

Shadow & light - go hand in hand
Peace without fight doesn't make sense
like the waves of the oceans
throwing their rage against the land
people's emotions
can rise so high or fall so deep again

Visionen
Visionen

Schweben

Manchmal, da bin ich ein Blatt im Wind
Manchmal, da trgt er mich irgendwohin
Manchmal bin ich ein Ballon ber dem Land
Manchmal, da bin ich ein Symphonie-Klang
- Weit weg von zu Haus -


Scheinen

Manchmal, da seh ich wie Unwetter aus
Manchmal, da seh ich Ideen ohne Haus
Manchmal seh ich aus wie ein Heiliger, der sndigt
Manchmal seh ich das was Unheil ankndigt
- Weit weg von zu Haus -


Trumen

Manchmal trum ich von zwei Seiten am Mond
Manchmal trum ich dass sich noch was lohnt
Manchmal trum ich dass ich hinter Sternen bin
Und dass man Stimmen als Schranken nimmt

Weit weg von zu Haus

 
Visions
Floating
Sometimes I feel like a motherless breeze
-a daffodil seed
-a balloon without ground
-a symphony sound
a long way from home

Visions
Sometimes I look like a flower in the rain
- an idea without aim
-a letter in the wind
-a saint who has sinned
A long way from life

Dreaming
Sometimes I dream of a doublefaced moon
-of a life behind stars
-of voices as bars
A long way from love
a long way from home

 
Vorbei
Manchmal ist alles zu Ende gedacht
Und von den Sternen tropft Zeit
Von jedem Baum fllt ein Traum in die Nacht
Wie Licht in die Dunkelheit

Erst kommt ein Blinder, der findet ihn nicht
Dann kommt ein Weiser und fllt
Nun kommt ein Wunsch, und er bringt ihn ans Licht,
Doch er zerbricht an der Welt

So viele Wunden kann man nicht sehn
So viele Stunden, vielleicht nie geschehn
Warum hat Gott uns die Liebe gezeigt
Sie ist so weit, viel zu weit

Leben ein Hauch, wie der Wind in dem Wald
Nichts lsst er so, wie es ist
Alles wird neu, und doch ist es so alt,
Dass es die Erde vergisst.

Dann kann man alles auf einmal verstehn
Zeit ist ein Fluss, der uns treibt
Nur in der Ruhe kann etwas entstehn,
Etwas, das immer so bleibt.

So viele Dinge kann man dann sehn,
So viele Wege sind wieder zu gehn
So viel geschieht und ist dort nie geschehn
So viele Welten vergehn

Es gibt ein Tor in die andere Zeit
In einen Strom, der uns weiter treibt
Und der macht, dass auf dieser Welt nichts so bleibt
Ja, gestern ist immer vorbei.

Weep With Me
Everyone gone, I'm all alone
they're all somehow sad, though nothing's really bad

Joy in their eyes- pain hidden inside
No talk for relief, smiles to cover the grief

It's in vain, it is sad
and it hurts really bad
But spite won't let love die
I feel too blue to cry

And the night, it'll weep for me

It's a good way to find emptiness left behind
But pride is no aid, I feel used, thrown away

When you were still there, I thought someone would care
But my hope was your toy, which you love to destroy

It's in vain, it is sad
and it hurts really bad
But spite won't let love die
I feel too blue to cry

So the sky, it'll weep for me
Just the sky, it'll weep with me

 
Wer Ich Bin
In einer Nacht bei Vollmond war sie hier
Im Wind, da sah ich ihr Gesicht
So transparent stand sie da neben mir
und funkelte wie Sternenlicht

und sagte:
Ihr wisst nicht mehr, wer ich bin
Und keiner kann mich mehr verstehn
Doch sie war nur aus Schein, ich hab sie in der Form
danach nie mehr gesehn

Die Lilie ffnet sich und eine Fee
die schwebte einfach auf dem Duft
Aus ihren Augen tropfte es Parfum
Hell wie die Sommerluft

Sie atmet:
Ihr wisst nicht mehr, wer ich bin
Und keiner kann mich mehr versteh'n
Doch sie war nur aus Dunst, ich hab sie in der Form
nie mehr danach geseh'n.

Ein Fluss, der sang den Weg hinab zum See
Ein Magier tanzte durch sein Lied
ber den Wellen schwebte er so frei
als ob es etwas ewig gibt

und er murmelt.
Ihr wisst nicht mehr, wer ich bin
Und keiner kann mich mehr versteh'n
Doch er war nur aus Klang, ich hab ihn in der Form
danach nie mehr geseh'n.
Jetzt will ich
geh'n, geh'n, zu versteh'n
weiter als bis hier
Geh'n um mehr zu seh'n
durch eine unsichtbare Tr

 
What A Difference A Day Made
What a difference a day made
Twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain

My yesterday was blue, dear
Today I'm part of you, dear
My lonely nights are through, dear
Since you said you were mine

What a difference a day makes
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy
Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss

It's heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is you

 
What Are You Dreaming Of (without band)
What are you dreaming of
What do you dream?

If it ain't nothing, it ain't true
it can't be nothing for you

What are you dreaming of
What do you dream

Is it a dream about what's gonna be
Is it about the things you know can't be real

Is it a woman (man), an ideal,
Is it just what you can't feel

What are you dreaming of
What do you dream ?

Is it a dream to bring back former times
Is it of luck or is it making you cry

Is it of happiness or pain
Does it bring sunshine or rain

What are you dreaming of
What do you dream ?

Try to get rid of what's taking your time
Try to get rid of what's taking your time

Cares of tomorrow aren't true
Cares of tommorrow haunt you

What are you dreaming of
What do you dream ?

 
What You Are Saying Don't Mean Nothing To Me
You try hiding your love in a mirror
And it is showing only my mistakes
Reaching out for it the glass broke in splinters
Like the broken pieces of our yesterdays
And I found out:
All I know is, life has been running on
Over me, round me. past me, trying to deceive me

You are losing my love in a fire
All you know is how to hurt me
Crystal ball memory burning desire
There is nothing when I try to touch what I see
And I found out:
All I know is. time has been running on Over me, round me, past me, trying to deceive me
And what you're saying don't mean nothing to me
No more.

 
When I Think Of You
Stars are shining in your eyes
and I don't know if it's wise
that I stick with you tonight
I remember it ain't right
to believe in your lies

In the daylight we belong
to a world that's sometimes gone
like a prism you can break
pretty colors for love's sake
I don't care if it's wrong

Feel the heat inside your hands
And it seems time never ends
There's a desert in my brain
Killing fear and killing pain
Saying: who gives a damn.

and when I think of you I fall
and when I hear your body call
and when I think of you it's over
But I don't really mind at all
No, I don't mind at all

 
When The Sun Rains Down
When the sun rains down it burns the ground

Let the rain rain down and soothe it with ist coolness
and make old seeds grow
Let the winds of winter blow it full of snow
and make it rest and glow
And in spring again when ices melt
its magic shows, I think you know

Whenever hate rains down the world is drowned

Let the tears stream down and configure it with magic
and make love grow
Let the storms of passion cover it with coal
and lite your soul
Let the lights of midnight vaporize its steam
you know what I mean

Rain will fall to make things grow
Storms will blow to lite your soul
ice will melt and life will show
changes are to come and go

Let the rain soothe burns and cry with you
and make life grow
let passion lite the ground around
and warm your soul
let the ice then melt to stream and steam
You know what I mean

Rain - make love grow
Love - lite our soul
ice - melt and go
sun - rain down
soothe it

 
Where Do We Go
There are fish in the water & birds in the sky
- why - why -why -
Trees in the forest and time must go by
- why - why - why


But where do we go


There is rain in the air and noone to care
- why - why - why
All the lights are blue and the memories bare
- why - why - why

But tell me: Where do we go



There is hope in the drain & love cant swim
- why - why - why
Peace in the alley & war in the brain
- why - why - why
& mountains stand or crumble, itll all come again
- why - why - why


Where do we go

 
Where The Heart Is
I'm sitting here among my stuff
with yet no place to go
The walls are moving in on me
the ceiling, too, I know.
I can't get out, and I can't shout
life is becoming slow
and resignation waits outside
and spite begins to grow

I -
can't lean on love or
lie on the truth or
ever believe in fate
I -
can't walk on love or
fly on a dove or
hope it is never getting late.

Home is where the heart is

Right now you find me
Just sitting here among my stuff
Can't help I'm feeling low
The ground is dancing under me
the ceiling starts to flow
The sounds I hear, they turn to me
they giggle and say: No!
You set your sails in vain, because
for you, no wind will blow.

Can't be where my heart is .......

 
Whiskey In The Jar
As I was going over the far famed Kerry mountains
I met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting.
I first produced my pistol, and then produced my rapier.
Said stand and deliver, for I am a bold deceiver,

I counted out his money, and it made a pretty penny.
I put it in my pocket and I took it home to Jenny.
She said and she swore, that she never would deceive me,
but the devil take the women, for they never can be easy

I went into my chamber, all for to take a slumber,
I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure it was no wonder.
But Jenny took my charges and she filled them up with water,
Then sent for captain Farrel to be ready for the slaughter.

It was early in the morning, as I rose up for travel,
The guards were all around me and likewise captain Farrel.
I first produced my pistol, for she stole away my rapier,
But I couldn't shoot the water so a prisoner I was taken.

If anyone can aid me, it's my brother in the army,
If I can find his station down in Cork or in Killarney.
And if he'll come and save me, we'll go roving near Kilkenny,
And I swear he'll treat me better than me darling sportling Jenny

Now some men take delight in the drinking and the roving,
But others take delight in the gambling and the smoking.
But I take delight in the juice of the barley,
And courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early

musha ring dumma do damma da
whack for the daddy 'ol
whack for the daddy 'ol
there's whiskey in the jar

 
Whiskey On A Sunday
He sits at the corner of Beggar's Bush
Astride of an old packing case
And the dolls at the end of the plank were dancing
As he groans with a smile on his face

la-la-la-la
Come day, go day
Wish in me heart it was Sunday
la-la-la-la
Drinkin' buttermilk all the week
And it's whiskey on a Sunday
His tired old hands from a wooden beam
And the puppets they danced up and down
A far better show than you ever will see
In the fanciest theatre in town

In nineteen-o-two on a sad day he died
The song it was heard no more
The three dancing dolls in the dustbin were thrown
And the plank went up in the backdoor

On some stormy night if you're passing that way
When the wind's blowing up from the sea
You may still hear the song of old Seth Davy
That he groans to his dancing dolls three

 
Wild Mountain Thyme
Oh, the summer-time has come
And the trees are sweetly bloomin',
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather;
Will ye go, lassie, go?

And we'll all go together,
To pull wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather;
Will ye go, lassie, go?

I will build my love a bower
By yon pure, crystal fountain,
And round it I will pile
All the wild flowers of the mountain;
Will ye go, lassie, go?
I will range through the wilds
And the deep land so dreary
And return with the spoils
To the bower o' my dearie;
Will ye go, lassie, go?
If my true love will not come
I will surely find another
To pull wild mountain thyme
All around the purple heather;
Will ye go, lassie, go?

Wishes
I wish I was a mermaid
At the bottom of the sea
With all those cute young fishermen
diving after me.
I wish I could just float
I wish I could just be
And anyway nobody would believe in seeing me

Come along, let us float,
let us be free


I wish I was a phoenix
soaring in the air
With all the winds caressing me
but I don't really care.
I wish I could just rise
I wish I could just be
And then again nobody would believe in seeing me

Come along, let us glide
let us be free

I wish I was a song
in a great composer's mind
With all the people in the world
listening all the time
I wish I could just sound
A voice I want to be
And sometimes haunt them to make sure
they are not forgetting me.

Come along, do resound,
let us be free

I wish I was a clear palantir
in a wizard's hand
He would believe what I foresee
And he would be a friend.
I wish then I could show him
what is going to be
And if he did all right
he were to see what I can see

Come along, let us know,
let us be free.

Words Can Kill
You are so careless when you speak
A spoken word is like a bird
rt won't return once if it's released
And a word, it can kill. a word, it can hurt.

Scars on the soul cannot be seen
Don't treat me like a piece of dirt
Why do you say what you don't mean?
Yes, a word, it can kill, a word, it can hurt,

You know how to use words as weapons
But a target ain't always around
It's all right, it makes you feel better
And you don't give a damn how it sounds

You don't have to insult me
And I don't wont you to lie
It's the way you are talking
That makes me want to cry
Words can also be soft and gentle
Words can be remedies
Words, they can kill a feeling
Words can mean war or peace
And they can be sharp, and heartless, and shooting
And like enemies

And a word, it can kill, a word It can hurt.

You
You made me feel so brandnew, so unreal
You made me feel what I am
You made me strong, made my summer nights long
I got you, you're my muse, you're my song

You made me know, made me glow, made me show
You made me shine in the dark
You got the ways, put your spell on my days
I got you, you're my island, my ark

Early this morning - I had a nightmare
thought you were missing - where are you, where?

You are my light, made my future look bright
(So) come what may, let it come soon
I foresee what will be, you're my son & my moon
You're my crystal ball, you are my rune


You made me week, made me no longer seek
You wouldn't cheat what you did
You wouldn't care to be rude, to be meek
You are different, you're mine, you're unique

You made me feel there is power of will
You made me follow my heart
You drive out harm, made my winter days warm
It'll never end, it'll just start

I forgot what it was like when you weren't around
& I cannot imagine I might lose what I found

Cause you made me new, made my old dreams come true
It must be magic you do
You are my life, you're my bliss & my blues
My eternity - since I got you
I got you, Babe, yes I got you

 
You Can`t Help Love (without band)
What can you do when you are lonely and sad
What can you do when you are feeling bad
What can you do when you try to change your mood
What can you do about a chance to feel good
What can you do when someone comes in your life
& suddenly all your trouble is over
You can't help love

What can you do when there is noone around
What can you do when there's no way to be found
What can you do when you find you made a mistake
What can you do, you'll never know what's at stake
What can you do when someone comes in your life
& suddenly all the trouble gets started
You can't help love

What can you do about all the perfect faces
What can you do when they make you hate all places
What can you do about so many answers at last
What can you do without a question to ask
What can you do when someone touches your heart
& suddenly trouble seems fascinating
You can't help love

 
You Won't Find What You Seek
How come I wonder
where I am going
Feeling so homesick
when I got no home
Being with you, Babe
is a castle on sand
It has been drifting
there ain't no land

So I might leave you, it seems, for my different dreams
How come I wonder
where I have been
Remembering places
I've never seen
Being with you, Babe
is a boat on the sea
floating through icebergs - it's hard to be free

So I might leave you, it seems, for my different dreams

and when the sun pours light over me
I wish it was dark then, and see what'll be

and when the darkness wraps around me
I find it so cold then warm it should be

and when I'm with you now and you fill me with heat
I'm just longing for love you won't find what you seek

and if some day I'm coming across it by chance
I might want you to be there in that wonderland

So I might leave you, it seems, for my different dreams

Zeit Flieg Weit
Ich erinnere mich an einen Garten
einen Platz, wo ein Brunnen war
Keine Sorgen, kein morgen, die warten
Gut & Bse ein friedliches Paar.
Durch das Tor kam dann das Leben
"Nimm mich leicht!" sagte es zu mir
"Was du brauchst kann ich dir alles geben."
Doch ich war jung, & ich wollte viel mehr.
Ich sagte:
Zeit, flieg weit - Lass mich doch hier, sei Ewigkeit
Zeit, flieg weit - ohne mich oder mit mir ist einerlei
flieg weiter
Zeit, flieg weit - ohne Weg, ohne Ziel, ohne Plan, ohne Zeit
Zeit, flieg weit

Ich stand suchend mit meinen Gedanken
auf dem Feld, & der Fluss wusch den Sand
Da legt auf meine fiebernde Schulter
Mondlicht kalt seine weisse Hand
"Nimm mich leicht." bat mein Verlangen
"Denn die Welt kennt viel mehr als nur mich."
Doch das alles schien ohne Bedeutung
Ich war jung, & ich glaubte es nicht.

Unkraut wuchert bald ber den Garten
Sehnsucht lsst mich noch immer nicht ruhn
Bin nicht weiser, nur lter geworden
wrde nochmal dasselbe tun.
"Nimm mich leicht!" verlangt die Welt nun
Doch der Wind ist von Trnen nass.
Wer nicht jung ist & trumt & noch mehr will
der verliert was er niemals besa.
Sag einfach: Zeit, flieg weit...
