1 Together

Dear life where have you been
and where will you be going
I've asked my legs and feet
but they don't have a lead

Dear love where have you been
and where will you be going
I've asked my heart and soul
but they don't know at all

Dear life dear love dear sense
you are my oldest friends
This relationship is forever
but we have to try and work together

Dear sense where have you been
and where will you be going
Asked my synapses and my brain
but they don't know I asked in vain


Life's sometimes hard to please
It's like the manual's in Chinese
Can't help I don't have a clue
Somebody tell me what to do


2 Stumble

Do I believe in myself
or does somebody else
have to tell me
Do they have to tell me

And if something goes wrong
am I really all that strong
You made me rely on you
but your feelings were untrue

You made me stumble
but I didn't fall
You made me tumble
but I will stand tall

You don't care anymore
My heart is still sore
But I will be strong
and my life will go on


You think I'm weak
You think you're all I need
I'm not stupid anymore
and so much stronger than before


3 In Memoriam - The Way of the Soul, Alfred Lord Tennyson

I envy not in any moods
The captive void of noble rage
The linnet born within the cage
That never knew the summer woods:

I envy not the beast that takes
His license in the field of time
Unfetter'd by the sense of crime
To whom a conscience never wakes;

Nor what may count itself as blest
The heart that never plighted troth
But stagnates in the weeds of sloth;
Nor any want-begotten rest

I hold it true whate'er befall;
I feel it when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all

4 Fire and Rainbow

When love grows
sky explodes
rainbow and fire

When you leave
sorrow comes
I know we always have to go

When love grows
no one really leaves
lovers never leave each other

As I know
that's all about

When love grows
thunder rolls
thunder and lightning

When you leave
nothing's left
I know we always have to go

When love grows
no one really leaves
lovers never leave each other

As I know
that's all about
all about - love

When love grows
sky explodes
rainbow and fire

Thunder and lightning

Fire and rainbow

5 Vampire

My blood stops running through my veins
My heart stops beating there's just pain
You're a phantom in the dark
Dream destroyer killer of hearts

You throw your web across my life
hold me back whenever I try
to stand up to these shadows in the dark
to fight cold moonlight without stars

You're a vampire
You play with the ashes of my hope
You play with the ashes of my soul

The walls around me seem so high
This bird is bleeding and can't fly
Maybe this is just spilled wine
It's not and you'll be with me till I die


6 Tonight

She left without a trace
You had no clue
She needed more space
Left a letter for you

Her knife's still in your chest
She left it there for you
Memories still in your head
She left them all to you

Hey forget your broken heart
Hey forget what's in the past
Don't ask why it didn't last tonight
Please don't ask why it didn't last tonight

This ghost's still in the house
sits between me and you
This knife can't take it out
it's stuck with you

Can't win it's not my fight
You know it's up to you
So hey come back to light
I'm here for you


7 Illusion

You only stare
when she walks through the room
She doesn't care
when your focus zooms

She's playing with you
You don't even care
You're just a fool
Don't know how you got there

It's an illusion
She's not what she seems
All your conclusions
are nothing but fantasy and dreams

She's out of your league
Don't raise your hope
Her smile isn't real
You couldn't cope

She's a goddess to you
You don't see how she lies
and what she will do
is gonna be a surprise


8 Back

The days were dark and cold
Many things in life untold
The sky was full of clouds
The house a house of fear and doubts

As blind as you can be
Feelings under lock and key
Stupid things that you can do
can never kill what's good and true

The rain is pouring the clouds are almost black
Against all odds we're standing here we're back
The rain is pouring the clouds are almost black
Against all odds we're standing here we're back

Dear friends please let us be
in peace und harmony
The world's crazy we were too
what really matters to me is you


9  Falling

I'm flying high above the ground
but some dark force likes to shoot me down
A stroke of luck is all I need
but I'm always losing speed

I'm going right I'm going left
One step forward two steps back
I see the light and see the dark
I love to love and tear it apart

I'm going up and down
My feet no longer on the ground
I'm spinning round and round
I know all kinds of slowly

falling down

I like to walk on ice with cracks
and do still wonder why I crash
I drink to much and talk to fast
and surely regret stuff in the past

I wanna help and make it right
but in the end it doesn't seem so bright
There might be something wrong with me
The question is to be or just to be


But when the sun comes out we smile
and know that life is one of a kind
Cause even if we stumble and fall
we know it doesn't matter at all


10 Be

I don't know why
love should die
when time goes by
Why don't we try anymore

Does it get so outdated
Is it so complicated
to cherish what's grown
and survived all rain and snow

Be my love of a lifetime
Be part of my lifeline
Be the chance of a lifetime
Be the vein of my lifeline

I don't know why
people rely
on things to go wrong
I know love can be strong

Can't two hearts stay together
and why shouldn't they do so forever
Can't two souls belong together
and why shouldn't they belong forever


11 Silent Song

I heard someone whispering
in the woods in a strange sunspot
A voice so soft so heart breaking
like an angel crooning for her God

Someone so small and fragile
like an elf in a fairy tale
Her hair gleamed in the sunlight
She seemed to be miles away

This is my silent song
My love is long gone
This is my silent song
My wings are long gone

She looked at me in surprise
Her dark eyes gave me a fright
Unbearable sadness in her eyes
She disappeared in the sunlight


12 Blue (dedicated to my dad who died in 2009)

You're not here anymore
Life closed a door
Now you are some place else
No one can really tell

The sky is so blue
Your eyes were too
Now you don't see me
You're only in my dream

Wherever you are
I hope it's not that far
and the sky is blue
and your eyes are again too

Since you've been gone
life went on and on
Summer came and went away
I wished you could have stayed


Well God may need some friends
So till we meet again
I hope you are all right
See you sometime


13 Sonnet 116, William Shakespeare

Let me not
to the marriage of true minds
admit impediments
Love is not love
which alters
when it alteration finds
Or bends
with the remover to remove:

O no! It's an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It's the star to every wandering bark
Whose worth's unknown although his height be taken

Love's not Time's fool
though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending
sickle's compass come;
Love alters not
with his brief hours and weeks
But bears it out
even to the edge of doom
If this be error and upon me proved  
I never writ nor no man ever loved
