’cause life goes by

in the blink of an eye
lai lai lai lai lai
I can’t wait forever
so baby won’t you tell me
what about you and I?

you and me lying peacefully
under pale blue skies, I can’t help wondering
could you reach the clouds and catch one just for me
but once again we watch as they roll by
what about you and I?

lai lai lai lai lai
’cause life goes by
lai lai lai lai lai
in the blink of an eye
lai lai lai lai lai
I can’t wait forever
so baby won’t you tell me
what about you and I?

you and me on our way back home
counting stars after the sun has gone
if you could reach that high would you get me one
but we watch until they fade out of sight
what about you and I?

lai lai lai lai lai
’cause life goes by
lai lai lai lai lai
in the blink of an eye
lai lai lai lai lai
I can’t wait forever
so baby won’t you tell me
what about you and I?

sometimes lightning strikes
it changes your whole life
but never happens twice

burn it, burn it
light up the fire high
burn it, burn it
set fire to the sky
no one, no one
is gonna change my mind
I will leave it all behind

blow it up, blow it up
I wanna hear the sound
blow it up, blow it up
watch it come crashing down
right now right now
you better run for the door
I’m not waiting anymore

the silence won’t last long
I’m sounding the alarm

I’m gonna burn this place
I’m gonna blow it up
’cause it only reminds me of how weak I was

let go, let go
release the wrecking ball
let go, let go
knocking down every wall
no one, no one
is gonna change my mind
I will leave it all behind

wake up, wake up
this is the final call
wake up, wake up
the sky is gonna fall
right now, right now
you better run for the door
I’m not waiting anymore

the silence won’t last long
I’m sounding the alarm

I’m gonna burn this place
I’m gonna blow it up
’cause it only reminds me of how weak I was
and when the sunlight breaks
and all the smoke is gone
I’ll know that my new life has just begun

blow it up – blow, blow, blow it up
blow it up – blow, blow, blow it up

I’m gonna burn this place
I’m gonna blow it up
’cause it only reminds me of how weak I was
and when the sunlight breaks
and all the smoke is gone
I’ll know that my new life has just begun

I swear I’ve been listening
but I’m a mile a away
the time we spend fighting
gets longer everyday

how can I believe a single word you said
you don’t mean it
you say you’re sorry then you go back and do it again
I don’t need this
try to live and learn
but I’m sick of getting burned

not gonna wait till I’m broken hearted
to turn my life around
not gonna wait for seas to be parted
’cause I’m not scared to drown
don’t know why I’ve been waiting for so long
I’m not gonna wait for you to tell me I’m wrong
I’m already gone
oh, oh…
I’m already gone

you swear that you’re listening
but I know that look on your face
your heart has gone missing
it got lost somewhere along the way

we could stay up talking till we see the sun
but admit it
you don’t care about me you only care if you won
so we’re finished
try to live and learn
but I’m sick of getting burned

not gonna wait till I’m broken hearted
to turn my life around
not gonna wait for seas to be parted
’cause I’m not scared to drown
don’t know why I’ve been waiting for so long
I’m not gonna wait for you to tell me I’m wrong
I’m already gone

yeah I wish I could say we had some good times
but looking back you and I were never right

not gonna wait till I’m broken hearted
to turn my life around
not gonna wait for seas to be parted
’cause I’m not scared to drown
don’t know why I’ve been waiting for so long
I’m not gonna wait for you to tell me I’m wrong
I’m already gone
oh, oh… I’m already gone
oh, oh… I’m already gone
oh, oh… I’m already gone
oh, oh… I’m not gonna wait for you to tell me I’m wrong
I’m already gone

I see you crying instead of trying
to take your heart back from fear
I know you’re lonely, but you’re the only one
you trust with all your tears

when was the last time that you laughed?
has it been a while?
I can’t remember the last time
I even saw you smile

friends like you I’ve had before
and
I won’t keep silent anymore
what good is it to know that you can only love yourself?
you can only stop the hurt, when you start loving someone else

don’t wanna hurt you I wanna help you
I couldn’t call myself your friend
if I didn’t try to stop you from lying to yourself
time and time again

you can’t blame the past for all your pain
let go of what has been
every day is a chance to change
and you have so much love to give

friends like you I’ve had before
and
I won’t keep silent anymore
what good is it to know that you can only love yourself?
you can only stop the hurt, when you start loving someone else

friends like you, friends like you, friends like you I’ve had before
friends like you, friends like you, friends like you I’ve had before
you’re not alone

friends like you I’ve had before
and
I won’t keep silent anymore
what good is it to know that you can only love yourself?
you can only stop the hurt, when you start loving someone else

friends like you, friends like you, friends like you I’ve had before
you’re not alone

I believe in love at first sight
but I’m not holding out for Mr. Right
so please don’t feel like your hands are tied
no, no

babe every time you’re close to me
my head’s composing pretty melodies
but please don’t feel like you’re not free
no, no
so don’t you worry baby

I don’t need a golden ring
to be sure that you love me
all I want to hear from you is
that I’m taking you higher
when I met you my life began
and all I need is what we have
what I want to hear from you is
that I’m taking you higher

I still get drunk by the look in your eyes
you are the one who gives me butterflies
and there’s no stronger proof I could find
no, no
so don’t you worry baby

I don’t need a golden ring
to be sure that you love me
all I want to hear from you is
that I’m taking you higher
when I met you my life began
and all I need is what we have
what I want to hear from you is
that I’m taking you higher

love needs time and space to grow
not diamonds, pearls or silver and gold
it is just your smile I’m longing for
right now, I won’t ask for more

I don’t need a golden ring
to be sure that you love me
all I want to hear from you is
that I’m taking you higher
when I met you my life began
and all I need is what we have
what I want to hear from you is
that I’m taking you higher

higher
and on and on
I wanna take you higher
and on and on

I don’t need a golden ring
to be sure that you love me

today I painted my bedroom in blue
I cut my hair, bought some land on the moon
but no matter what I try to do
all I think about is coming home
coming home

went out with friends and we danced all night long
on our way out I heard my favorite song
and the memories came rushing back
now all I think about is coming home
coming home

well maybe, maybe I just miss the change of weather
or people who have known me forever
but all I think about is coming home

today I ran over 25 miles
because I hoped to shake off my old life
but no matter just how hard I try
all I think about is coming home
coming home

traveled the whole world by land, sea and air
but all I found was that there’s nothing else
that can ever make me feel the way
I feel the day before I’m coming home
coming home

well maybe, maybe I just miss the change of weather
or people who have known me forever
but all I think about is coming home

I have seen so many amazing things
but there’s always something missing
I’ve been gone for way too long
so this time I’m coming home
yeah this time I’m coming home

well maybe, maybe I just miss the change of weather
or people who have known me forever
now all I wanna do is coming home
maybe I just miss the change of weather
or people who have known me forever
now all I wanna do is coming home

all I wanna do is coming home
I’m coming home
all I wanna do is coming home
I’m coming home
all I wanna do is coming home
I’m coming home
I’m coming home

they called it love
they said it makes you free
they said that you have never really lived
if you have never loved
so I kept on waiting, waiting, waiting for love
and went on dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
till I found you

traveled around this great big world
and all I found
was that no one was around
to pick me up when I fell down
I always knew I was missing something
something I could not explain
I spent too much of my lifetime walking
on my own

they called it love
they said it makes you free
they said that you have never really lived
if you have never loved
so I kept on waiting, waiting, waiting for love
and went on dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
till I found you

I always thought that I was better off alone
but no matter where we go
when I’m with you it feels like home
I always knew I was missing something
something I could not explain
I spent too much of my lifetime walking
on my own

they called it love
they said it makes you free
they said that you have never really lived
if you have never loved
so I kept on waiting, waiting, waiting for love
and went on dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
till I found you

I was looking out
I was longing for
I was dreaming of
someone like you, like you

I was looking out
I was longing for
I was dreaming of
someone like you, like you

they called it love
they said it makes you free
they said that you have never really lived
if you have never loved
so I kept on waiting, waiting, waiting for love
and went on dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
till I found you

so I kept on waiting, waiting, waiting for love
and went on dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
till I found you
till I found you

our favorite song…
you left without a single word
I had no chance to say goodbye
and I didn’t try to hold you back
on that rainy summer night

all the stars might be shining
but my heart is crying
every time they play our favorite song
I’m still thinking of you
do you think of me too?
every time they play our favorite song

I’m dreaming of you constantly
you are always on my mind
there were many times you made me cry
but I still need you by my side

all the stars might be shining
but my heart is crying
every time they play our favorite song
I’m still thinking of you
do you think of me too?
every time they play our favorite song

one day we’ll be sitting there
in a little old café
and we’ll laugh at how little it can take
to make everything okay

all the stars might be shining
but my heart is crying
every time they play our favorite song
I’m still thinking of you
do you think of me too?
every time they play our favorite song
our favorite song

we all lose sight from time to time
of what matters most
but now I know that I, I still love you

all the stars might be shining
but my heart is crying
every time they play our favorite song
I’m still thinking of you
do you think of me too
every time they play our favorite song
our favorite song

all the stars might be shining
but my heart is crying
every time they play our favorite song
our favorite song
I’m still thinking of you
do you think of me too
every time they play our favorite song
our favorite song

am I old, ’cause I don’t feel so young
do I have time or do I have to run
I’ve come far, so far away from my home
with all my friends I still feel all alone

I made it halfway
now I’m too scared to move on
the road is under construction
the way back would be too long

got the strength for yet another fight
but well I know it’s not so ladylike

I made it halfway
now I’m too scared to move on
the road is under construction
the way back would be too long
I made it halfway
but I’m too scared to move on

save me – take my hand and walk me through the storm
save me – break the dark and light my way back home

I’m not done just suffering for my art
the heat is on between my head and heart
got it all but just not what I need
what is that thing that makes me feel complete

I made it halfway
but I’m too scared to move on

save me – take my hand and walk me through the storm
save me – break the dark and light my way back home
save me – lift me up and sail with me today
save me – just one last time let’s dream the day away

I’m not old, I’m still young
I got time, don’t need to run
just stuck in midway

today I found a letter
which I wrote when I was young
so yellowed I almost couldn’t read the lines
well tell me are these my words
’cause they seem so strange to me
and I almost can’t believe
how far I went astray
can’t remember when I lost my way

take me back to where I started
back to yesterday
back to where my heart is
back so far away

everything back, everything back to zero, to zero
everything back, everything back to zero, to zero

I’m looking at the pictures
daddy made when I was young
well tell me is that curious girl really me?
this girl is really happy
and her eyes are full of joy
and it seems like she is not afraid of anything
and could do almost anything

take me back to where I started
back to yesterday
back to where my heart is
back so far away

everything back, everything back to zero, to zero
everything back, everything back to zero, to zero

got to be brave
got to be strong
got to believe
got to hold on

got to be brave
got to be strong
got to believe
got to hold on
like the girl with the curious eyes

take me back to where I started
back to yesterday
back to where my heart is
back so far away

take me back to where I started
back to yesterday
back to where my heart is
back so far away

everything back, everything back to zero
everything back, everything back to zero, to zero
everything back, everything back to zero
everything back, everything back to zero

It feels like someone stabbed a knife between your shoulders · You wanna leave but you can’t walk · You try to hold your tears back · When they’re whispering your name · Drowning all their sorrows in champagne · I can see your beauty · I can see your grace · You can change the world · No matter what the haters say · I see your spirit shining · Brighter than the sun · I won’t let you come undone · They may say that you are never gonna make it · That you’re stuck somewhere in between · But I know your star is rising · At the speed of light · Get ready for your take-off, the time is right · I can see your beauty … I can see your beauty · I can see your grace · You can change the world · No matter what the haters say · You’ll be the last girl standing · The queen who needs no crown · They can never bring you down · And every hilltop you have climbed · Every ocean you have crossed · Makes me proud of you · Proud of you · I can see your beauty … I will be standing right in front of you · Keep you safe from the desert storm · I will be standing right behind you · If anyone ever brings you harm · I will be standing right behind you · Keep you safe from the desert storm

Keep on running, keep on running · Keep on running back to you · Loving you wasn’t always easy · You turned my life upside down · Stuck in a story without an ending · Made me finally lose ground · Packed my stuff and took the next plane · Left my footprints all over the sand · Wanted to leave this life behind me · Without ever coming back · I still keep on running back to you · After all these years you’re still the one I’m turning to · I still keep on running back to you · After all that’s been you’re what I need to hold on to · See you standing in the doorway · With that special smile on your face · I hate it when you make me love you · By saying baby it’s never too late · I even love you when we’re fighting · I even miss you when you’re asleep · I hope you never walk out this door · And that your life is better with me · I still keep on running back to you … When we split I felt like dying · Loneliness was killing me · No lights in the frightening darkness · No one there for saving me · I still keep on running back to you … Keep on running, keep on running · Keep on running back to you

Put down my bag in the low-lit backstage · Walk down the hall like I always do · Try to forget what happened last night · But all that’s on my mind is you · Should go on stage but I’m not in the mood to · If I could leave I would do it right now · Hide myself in the corner of nowhere · Where I’m allowed to cry and shout · And not come out and not come out · I’m diving into · Diving into · Diving into the night · To- morrow is tomorrow · But tonight I walk the line · It’s getting quiet ’cause the party is over · I watch the stars like I always do · Try to smile while holding my tears back · And all that’s on my mind is you · You left my life like you’d never been there · Like a shadow disappearing at night · And while I’m having a drink and another · I tell myself everything is alright · While getting dizzy by the blinding lights · I’m diving into … I will be crying tomorrow · But tonight I walk the line · See your face a thousand times · Live the years when you were mine · Feeling better will take time · But tonight, tonight I walk the line · Tonight I walk the line · I’m diving into …

You know my life has never really been easy · Way more things which hurt me than pleased me · It started there, right back in my childhood · When I did not look the way that I should · Schoolmates didn’t like what they saw in me · The only black sheep of a perfect family · So I learned to fight and go my own way · And find a place to stay · Oh, life! · My arms are wide open · I will take whatever you will bring, I will be fine · Oh, life! · You won’t hear me complaining · As long as I can keep this love forever by my side · I still remember when my family fell apart · Broken glass left a scar right in my heart · And the dark side seemed to be really close · When I thought mom died of an overdose · I started thinking that no one loves me · And tried so hard to find out who I wanna be · I bore the blame and so much more · Now there’s one thing I’m asking for · Oh, life! …

Someone is in my room · I can feel the air move · Got this feeling since we hit this town · A kind of presence that seems all around · I turn the lights on so I lose my fear · But I’m still afraid—it does not disappear · In all these years I’ve always asked myself · If there could really be a someone else · But I’m too scared to turn my face to you · Tell me who are you? · Who are you? · Someone is in my room · I can feel the air move · And it’s not just the full moon · But I can see nobody · Can see nobody · Someone lies on my bed · Watching me while I sleep · And it’s not just in my head · But I can see nobody · Can see nobody · Have you always been so close to me · Or is my mind just playing tricks on me · Do any others feel what I can feel · Or am I crazy—tell me what’s the deal? · In all these years I’ve always asked myself · If there could really be a someone else · But I’m too scared to turn my face to you · Tell me who are you? · Who are you? · Someone is in my room … You ask me who I am? · When I’m reaching for your hand · You hear my echo calling your name · When you’re in this distant land? · You can’t see what you feel, but girl you know I’m real · But it seems I’m only seen in the shadows of things · I’m more than a dream · Feel the thunder, see the lightning strike · As I keep your enemies in my sight · When we moonlight · So you can focus on your path to the limelight · Every song that you sing feeds my appetite · I lie next to you, your body raising in the Fahrenheit · I know you feel my touch but I escape your sight · So turn your face to me as I cross over tonight · Someone is in my room …

If I had money I would buy the castle by the sea · There is no other place in the world where I’d rather be · A place so beautiful that I cried when we first met · A place full of mystery which I will never forget · One day I’ll be the owner of the castle by the sea · And live there with my friends and my family · And we’ll all be singing and dancing · Till the sun, till the sun goes down · And till we all fall happily asleep · If I had money I would give the homeless a home · I’d take them to my castle and never leave them alone · A place where they would all feel safe and secure · A place which they would never want to leave for sure · One day I’ll be … You are high up on the hill surrounded by the fields · Listening to the sound of the ocean · While time stands still · One day I’ll be …

Twenty thousand soldiers are waiting to get back home · They’re talking about their future, about their families · Sometimes you can hear them laughing and telling jokes · Their voices sound strong and their hearts must be brave · Twenty thousand soldiers are serving another day · In the heat of the desert, at the end of the world · I wonder how they feel and if they are alright · And I hope they will all make it home · I don’t understand why they do what they do · But I send them a bright star to light up the night · And in the name of their mothers, fathers and wives · I hope they will all make it home · I don’t understand … I hope they will all make it home

I’ve never seen your face, I’ve never talked to you · Don’t know who you are · I don’t know where you live or what you’re doing now · Are you still around? · And I’m sending you greetings wherever you might be · They’re coming from a girl who would love to know you · Coming from a girl who would love to meet you soon · And I’m sending you greetings no matter wherever you go · They’re coming from a girl who would love to see you · Coming from a girl you don’t know · They’re saying things about you, what happened that night · Wish they’d tell me more · Why can’t there be a way, a way to turn back time · So I could see it all · And I’m sending you greetings … Won’t rest until I find you … Won’t quit until I meet you · Won’t sleep until I see you · Won’t stop until I know you · Won’t stop until I know you · I won’t stop until I know you · I wonder if you would be proud of me · I wonder if I am the daughter you always have wished for

Well it’s a long, a long, a long, long way to go … Monday morning another rainy day · I’m late like always no time to stay · Should clean the house should wash my clothes · I’m on low energy from a salad overdose · Sitting in the bus you’re calling me · Telling me again that you wanna be free · That you’ll be gone by the end of the day · Life’s a bitch—what can I say? · But I still trust in fortune · ’Cause I’m drifting in the ocean of life · Waves of hope are giving me shelter · And the deep dark blue makes me strong · Well it’s a long, a long, a long, long way to go … Monday evening I break open my door · I couldn’t find my keys and bag anymore · Should call my mum should call my dad · And call my granny so she won’t get mad · See my cat hanging high up in a tree · The fire trucks are on their way to me · After all another rainy day · Life’s a bitch—what can I say? · And I still trust in fortune · ’Cause I’m drifting in the ocean of life · Waves of hope are giving me shelter · And the deep dark blue makes me strong · Well it’s a long, a long, long way to go … I might be having a hard day and my world seems upside down · But there’s nothing I can’t handle and I will stand up time after time · And I still trust in fortune · ’Cause I’m drifting in the ocean of life · And I can feel the sense of passion · Which I thought has already gone · Well it’s a long … I might be having a hard day · And my world seems upside down · But there’s nothing I can’t handle · And I will stand up time after time

There is a house which is hidden by the trees · With an old English garden and a graceful alley · A place where white horses welcome you home · Where time stands still and the old souls talk · They’re telling stories of the good old times · How they had built this place with their hands · They say you can feel the magic in the air · If you close your eyes and believe it is there · There is a house which is hidden by the trees · Close to the river and the sunflower fields · A house you find peace and love after all · Will you bury me there once I am gone? · A house full of hope · A place where time stands still · Where the old souls talk · A home for you and me

You’re lying on the floor of your bedroom · Crying your eyes out once again · You say you haven’t eaten since Tuesday · Well, come on get up my dearest friend · You’re not the only one suffering · And this is not going to kill you · Everything else we can handle · All you need is a good time · You got a sky full of stars and a bottle of wine · Me and a party to go · We got the city and the lights · We dance all night · Till you let go · You still got your smile · Still got your dreams · We got the city and the lights · We dance all night · Till you let go · You say you have nothing to live for · That your whole life is just a joke · This time you are leaving for good · Because you don’t wanna fight no more · You’re not the only one being hurt And this is not going to break you · Everything else we can handle · All you need is a good time · You got a sky full of stars … City lights, city lights, city lights … My heart is pumping to the beat · Your heart is pumping to the beat · We’re getting lost in sound and heat · Till you let go from head to feet · You got a sky full of stars … And you got me …

You and me could be so happy · We could have a good life if we tried · You and me must be soul mates · ’Cause I always know what’s on your mind · You and me are made for each other · I can see it right there in your eyes · Don’t be afraid ’cause if we hesitate · We might never know if I’m right · I still believe in the power of love · And that you and me could be together · And if we don’t try we will never find out · I wanna try, I wanna try · I still believe in the power of love · And that you and me could be together · But if you don’t kiss me we’ll never find out · You and me could go very far · And this love, it might last forever · We could build a home and would never be alone · You and me together · I still believe in the power of love … I still believe in the power of love · And I wanna try · I wanna try · With you and I …

Looking in the mirror at the woman who is standing in front of me · Not quite sure if I like what I see and if she is what I wanted to be · I had so many dreams about what I would once become, when I was a girl · Live a free life, go my own way, travel around and see the world · Yeah, I should wake up and change my life right now before it is too late · There are no more excuses left but still I’m scared and still I do hesitate · I feel the sunlight on my skin · Embrace the world I’m living in · It’s like I’ve slept for a thousand years · But now I’m wide awake · Here I walk alone · This is my life, my time, my show · Left a note at home · This is my way, my day, my mo · This time I won’t change my mind · I will leave it all behind · Till I’ve seen my San Francisco · Here I stand alone· This is my life, my time, my show · Watching planes take off · This is my way, my day, my mo · This time I won’t change my mind · I will leave it all behind · Till I’ve seen my San Francisco · Here I walk alone … This is my life, my time, my show · My San Francisco · This is my way, my day, my mo · My San Francisco · This is my life, my time, my show, my mo, my way, my day · Today, I’m on my way, my San Francisco · My San Francisco …


please, no more talking about the things that I shouldn’t do
no need to rehash my old fears and mistakes
I paid my dues and went through hell just as much as you
no need to worry ‘cause my life is just great

maybe it was time to let go
maybe this is just what I want to be
I appreciate your good advice but
I don’t care if that’s what you need

all my hopes and dreams are one now
and I’m not frightened anymore
I knew the sun would catch me someday
‘cause this is life after all

maybe it was time to let go
maybe this is just what I want to be
I appreciate your good advice but
I don’t care if that’s what you need

all my hopes and dreams are one now
and I’m not frightened anymore
I knew the sun would catch me someday
‘cause this is life after all

all my hopes and dreams are one now
and I’m not searching anymore
I knew that one day it would be my turn
there must be a rising after, after the fall

after the fall…

the voice of love
called your name in my sleep
once, twice and a third time
till I was ready to hear

should I be a brave girl
or leave it all up to you
I’m still counting the hours
and I don’t know what to do

standing at the crossroads
and still afraid to go
will you leave when it looks like rain
that’s all I have to know

standing at the crossroads
and kind of willing to try
will you leave when the tide is coming in
if so, then baby goodbye

tell me what you’re feeling
‘cause I can’t make up my mind
could you be what I’ve always wanted
or am I stupid and blind

I’m still counting the hours
and I don’t know what to do

standing at the crossroads
and still afraid to go
will you leave when it looks like rain
that’s all I have to know

standing at the crossroads
and kind of willing to try
will you leave when the tide is coming in
if so, then baby goodbye

oh, love is calling
oh, I think I’m falling

standing at the crossroads…

I used to be a shadow gliding over house walls
hiding from the freezing nights
I used to cross the old bridge and stare into the water
pretending that I feel alright

love me
hold me
closely
whatever comes just don’t let go

‘cause I, I’ve never felt that strong before
and I’m reaching out for more – save me
from falling on this frozen ground

‘cause you, you could be my guiding light
and everything might turn out right – save me
from falling on this frozen ground

a nightcap in the city to fight against seclusion
maybe there is someone around
how would it be to turn home and someone was waiting
smile at me and hold me tight

love me
hold me
closely
whatever comes just don’t let go

‘cause I, I’ve never felt that strong before
and I’m reaching out for more – save me
from falling on this frozen ground

‘cause you, you could be my guiding light
and everything might turn out right – save me
from falling on this frozen ground

‘cause I, I’ve never felt that strong before
and I’m reaching out for more
don’t you save me

love me
hold me

someone to guide me
‘cause I’m tired of straying around

love me
hold me

lonely people whose eyes are filled with tears
feeling blue while they’re captured by their fears
I wonder if they have given up the fight
defying life and even trying to make it right

you’re telling me there’s nothing left to do
it takes more than the strength of me and you
it seems to me that you’ve lost the light
which gave you courage and the will to fight

turn on, turn on your radio
turn up the volume as loud as you can ‘cause I
I got a message just for you
there’s love, love left in this world
and I still feel hope around me
don’t tell me there’s nothing we can do

I’ve been in places where no one has a home
children left in the streets all on their own
people struck by starvation and disease
so don’t you tell me you’re tired please

you’re telling me there’s nothing left to do
it takes more than the strength of me and you
it seems to me that you’ve lost the light
which gave you courage and the will to fight

turn on, turn on your radio
turn up the volume as loud as you can ‘cause I
I got a message just for you
there’s love, love left in this world
and I still feel hope around me
don’t tell me there’s nothing we can do

turn on, turn on your radio
turn up the volume as loud as you can ‘cause I
I got a message just for you
turn on, turn on

turn on, turn on your radio
turn up the volume as loud as you can ‘cause I
I got a message just for you
there’s love, love left in this world
and I still feel hope around me

turn on, turn on your radio
I got a message just for you

full of hope and a little scared
people whispered but she never cared – about that
she was looking for the real big deal
driven by a dazzling zeal

a short skirt and tank top on
pretty tired but still moving on – even though
flashlights were blinding her eyes

a summer day 1989
school was over and the weather was fine
when Betty came to town
when Betty came to town

all she owned in a paper bag
she did her make-up while holding a fag
when Betty came to town
when Betty came to town

it’s been years since she came to town
but people still see her around – she still got
a short skirt and a tank top on

she lives in the old house down by the apple trees
surrounded by a garden of flowers and honeybees
they say she’s telling stories about her life and love
to forget about what she was dreaming of

a summer day 1989
school was over and the weather was fine
when Betty came to town
when Betty came to town

all she owned in a paper bag
she did her make-up while holding a fag
when Betty came to town
when Betty came to town

all she owned…

yes it is a tragedy and you’re right, it really seems that
destiny has turned its back on you
and I feel unbelievably sorry
for everything that happened to you

no I won’t leave you here alone
there’s too much emptiness in your eyes and I won’t go
just let me lie beside you and hold you
for a little while, a little while

don’t you talk about leaving
you know the good days they come and go
and no matter whatever follows
as soon as the day breaks, you’ll be a bit further from it all

of course it is hard to find your way back to life
and no one denies your right to hide
behind these silent walls day by day
so please, don’t you please

don’t you talk about leaving
you know the good days they come and go
and no matter whatever follows
as soon as the day breaks, you’ll be a bit further from it all

don’t you talk about leaving
you know the good days they come and go
please remember that someone loves you
so don’t you give up ‘cause I will catch you when you fall

don’t you talk about leaving
I will catch you when you fall
don’t you talk about leaving

she hears them laughing
slim girls with pretty handbags
kissing their boyfriends
like couples in TV soaps

she’s leaving the building
no one should see her cry
while crossing the river
there’s no hope in her eyes

they seem to be happy
more than she ever will be
she feels homely and lonely
insecure and slightly underdressed

they seem to be happy
more than she ever will be
she feels homely and lonely
insecure and slightly underdressed

she climbs over the handrail
her fingers clutch the iron grid
she thinks about mother
and about what her father did

they seem to be happy
more than she ever will be
she feels homely and lonely
insecure and slightly underdressed

they seem to be happy…

hello, hello
I’m really glad to see you
‘cause I, ‘cause I
have missed your velvet leaves

it’s been, it’s been
a long lasting journey to find you
but now, but now
I’m finally standing here

goodbye, goodbye
I’m missing you already
‘cause you, ‘cause you
are the only one who knows

you’re saying you’re tired, you’re desperate, depleted and that you’re feeling empty
I can see in your eyes that your life is – just rushing by
maybe there is a way I could help out and give you a part of your life back
just follow me, just follow me

you will find me in the secret garden
behind the apple trees
where blueberries grow
I will wait there till you come and find me
to hear my fairy tales
about life and love

your eyes they sparkle like diamonds and you sigh while you breathe out
excited like a child – when your naked feet touch ground
you listen to my stories about fairies and princes and the secret garden
just follow me, just follow me

you will find me in the secret garden
behind the apple trees
where blueberries grow
I will wait there till you come and find me
to hear my fairy tales
about life and love

you will find me…

why don’t you follow me
in the secret garden where you will
lay your body on the ground

you will find me…

it’s been a long time since I lay on my bed
and held my pillow tight
without any fear and without any worries
when I just felt alright

mostly I battled for reaching more and more
and I’m feeling restless
I couldn’t find myself or nobody else
‘cause I was lost

this is more than I deserve
‘cause I wasn’t always a good girl
this is more than you deserve
‘cause you’ve never tried to stop me

suddenly life is brighter than sunlight
the clouds are drifting by
please won’t you tap me ‘cause I guess I’m dreaming
tell me it’s no lie

mostly I battled for getting more and more
and I’m feeling restless
I couldn’t find myself or nobody else
‘cause I was lost, I was lost

this is more than I deserve
‘cause I wasn’t always a good girl
this is more than you deserve
‘cause you’ve never tried to stop me

hell no don’t go
hell no don’t leave me
hell no don’t go
hell no don’t leave me

this is more…

it’s a shame and it is unbelievably sad and I
I don’t understand how it came so far
they had it all and so much more and yet
they screwed it up

calling all angels to save their souls
calling all angels to take them home

trying to rescue their broken bodies
calling all angels to save their souls
‘cause there is nothing left and they’re close to reaching the borderline

trying to rescue their broken bodies
calling all angels to save their souls
‘cause there is nothing left and they’re close to reaching the borderline

they are reaching out for help
but at the same time they don’t
don’t let anybody, anybody come close enough to
comfort their lonely hearts and to take them home

calling all angels to save their souls
calling all angels to take them home

trying to rescue their broken bodies
calling all angels to save their souls
‘cause there is nothing left and they’re close to reaching the borderline

trying to rescue their broken bodies
calling all angels to save their souls
‘cause there is nothing left and they’re close to reaching the borderline

broken bodies
save their souls
broken bodies
take them home

trying to rescue…

don’t you tell me that life was hard
‘cause I’ve spent most of it with you
and all the pain you talk about
is not half the pain that I went through

I can’t take this anymore
I should have left before

step out of my way ‘cause time has come for me to leave
you know I should have left before
this place has never been my home so let me go
‘cause love don’t live here anymore

the curtain has fallen all the lights went out
I hear the slamming of the door
my suitcase dragging on wet ground
I’ve never felt so relieved before

I won’t take this anymore
I should have left before

step out of my way ‘cause time has come for me to leave
you know I should have left before
this place has never been my home so let me go
‘cause love don’t live here anymore

love don’t live here anymore…


coming home just another crazy day
had to leave, nothing really made me stay
life is tough but I ain’t gonna give up, no
I give my best while I try to take it slow
looking out of my window like I used to do
see this place and I’m getting kind of blue
close my eyes listen to my favourite song
my belief in patience made me strong

yes, maybe I am crazy
and well, a little bit out of space
but at least, at least I know what I want
on this little mountain is where I’am going to stand

I can hear the voices of the raging crowd
while drums and bass are getting loud
and if it is the last thing that I’m going to do
I’ll be there and smile at you

no matter what comes up
no matter what they say
no matter how long it takes
don’t stop fighting
don’t stop believing
cause one day the one who’s up there
will be you

yes, maybe I’m crazy,
and well, a little bit out of space,
but at least, at least I know what I want,
on this little mountain is where I’m going to stand
maybe I’m crazy and a little bit out of space
a little bit…

nice to meet you tell me how is life
I heard you got a great job and an beautiful wife
no I’m not married but doing quite fine
still in love with music
damn it’s been a long time
still remember you and me
running through the fields
playing indians and cowboys

rewind please
let us do it once again
let us act a little crazy
let me feel it once again

rewind please
let us turn back time
no one ever finds out
these memories are yours and mine

of course I understand that you have to leave
she has cooked you dinner don’t feel sorry for it please
yeah I got some things to do and I’m also tired
we can meet another time if wished and desired
still remember you and me
running through the fields
playing indians and cowboys

rewind please …

don’t leave me now, take it slow
we might never see again don’t let go
remember you and me turn back time
let’s go back again when life was fine

rewind please …

in a mad situation they try to be patient
and act like they’re feeling fine
although they’re afraid that it could be too late
they’re fighting against the time
acting complicated getting more frustrated
but still they can’t let go no
ike prisoners of a self-created show

stereophonic girlfriends
in a stereophonic life
left right left right left
up and down and beside
stereophonic girlfriends
with a stereophonic mind
yes no yes no yes
are they ever gonna decide

getting insane reflecting always the same
but there won’t be no way out
having no clue what they really should do
what is this all about
tired of choosing but afraid of losing
all they’ve built up in life
they slowly get prepared for the strife

stereophonic girlfriends
in a stereophonic life
left right left right left
up and down and beside
stereophonic girlfriends
with a stereophonic mind
yes no yes no yes
are they ever gonna decide

stop – stand still – breath and think
you’re losing it all if you’re not taking control
there will be no one to call no one preventing the fall
your frickin’ options are small

stereophonic girlfriends

waves of sorrows are crashing down on me
they pull me deep down to the ground
dust and fog constrain my sight and mind
oh how I’m stuck while my spirit and mind are bound

bring me to the hayfield
to the place where I belong
years have passed tears were lost
all that’s left is eternal trust
bring me back where I belong

one place on earth relieves my teariness
the home and anchor for my soul
when light and hope are gone entirely
I’ll go there for praying and gaining control

bring me to the hayfield
to the place where I belong
years have passed tears were lost
all that’s left is eternal trust
bring me back where I belong

lying next to you and watch you while you’re sleeping
can’t believe how far we’ve come in all this time
I hope we never lose this feeling
I hope we never go astray
you know that losing you would leave me down in bitter silence

you’re my soulmate
giving me shelter from the storm
and I’m so glad
to have you in my life
a little longer, a little stronger
a little bit more of this
and we both may have the best days of our life

holding you so tight and hear your quiet breathing
proud of what we built and set in all these years
I want to always lie beside you
I want to keep this love alive
you know that having you is saving me from lonely drowning

you’re my soulmate
giving me shelter from the storm
and I’m so glad
to have you in my life
a little longer, a little stronger
a little bit more of this
and we both may have the best days of our life
you’re my soulmate…

an unperfect woman and an unperfect man
are trying to give their best while doing all they can
still not willed to give up, still not willed to lose
fighting for salvation and for the life they choose

just an unperfect woman
with an unperfect man
starts living like she wants to
and not for anybody else

an unperfect woman with a burnt out soul
is looking out for rescue and tries to keep control
maybe she surrenders and can help herself
and starts living like she wants to and not for anybody else

just an unperfect woman
with an unperfect man
starts living like she wants to
and not for anybody else

just an unperfect woman
with an unperfect man
starts living like she wants to
and not for anybody else
and she cries and lies and tries…

no don’t you explain what you’ve been thinking
I can’t talk about this now
it hurts too bad and all I wonder is
will I survive somehow?

bye-bye, bye-bye my best friend
bye-bye lover and mentor
I’m thanking you for everything you brought into my life
and maybe this is more than a goodbye

take your things and leave this place
and take your shadow with you if you go
maybe I should be strong and confirm that I survive
but that you let me down is all I know

bye-bye, bye-bye my best friend
bye-bye lover and mentor
I’m thanking you for everything you brought into my life
and maybe this is more than a goodbye
bye-bye

lay down lay down your head on my shoulder
and let me hold you tight
I know I know the wind is blowing colder
but everything will turn out right

dry your tears, don’t you cry ‘cause things will turn out right no one said it would be easy to step into this life
all this pain all the sorrows that we’ve both been through
but now at least we’re still standing and I’ve never lost my faith in you

don’t cry don’t cry things will soon be better
and the sun will rise again
I will I will always love you deeply
let me hold you once again

dry your tears, don’t you cry ‘cause things will turn out right
no one said it would be easy to step into this life
all this pain all the sorrows that we’ve both been through
but now at least we’re still standing and I’ve never lost my faith in you
no one said that it would be easy…

sit down take a seat relax my friend
t’s not true that I don’t understand
why you’re so mad about that wench
it’s really chic to talk in French
but still I’m sure she’s not the one
you’ll see after two months she’ll be gone
this girl is looking for a trophy
and you’re not tough but fluffy
she is pretty she is charming
but my friend can’t you see that
she is crazy and she might be…not the one
come on don’t tell me you’re alone
and stop sitting next to the telephone
what about your friends are they on hold?
do you remember what you’ve told?
you said you will be always there for me
and that you won’t fall in love too easily
but you go nuts when she’s around
are you ready for the big rebound?
she is pretty she is charming…
hello hello hello
say no say no say no
she is pretty she is charming…

calm down now
please don’t cry
things just happen
don’t ask me why

there’s nothing you have to say
and nothing you have to do
cause I’m alright, I’m okay
I’m not weary in any way
you may say how come and why
‘cause there’s more to love than meets the eye

don’t argue
let’s try to understand
the world keeps on turning
this won’t be the end

there’s nothing you have to say
and nothing you have to do
‘cause I’m alright, I’m okay
I’m not weary in any way
you may say how come and why
‘cause there’s more to love than meets the eye

I’m alright, I am well
I’m still standing as you can tell
you may say how come and why
‘cause I’m a fighter till the day I die
don’t try to find solutions
‘cause I won’t blame this on you
things like this just happen
and there’s nothing, nothing you can do
‘cause I’m alright, I am well…

it’s getting cold, the sun is gone
I’m looking back on what I’ve done
who is this girl I’m staring at
say, where is she from?
looking for words which don’t exist
and turn my back on what I’ve missed
who is this girl who is crying now
and where will she go?

and the wind is telling stories
about a life, far away from here
let me find the secrets – deep inside of me
let me feel this passion – taking over me
a little inspiration – is all I need

nowhere to run nowhere to hide
can’t let go but can’t decide
what is it what I’m looking for
has it still yet to come?
where is this shimmer in my eyes
it disappeared just like the night
sadness took me by surprise
when will she leave?

and the wind is telling stories
about a life, far away from here
let me find the secrets – deep inside of me
let me feel this passion – taking over me
a little inspiration – is all I need
