DON’T FEAR THE YEARS

i stand here and watch the waves
the wind blows in my face
thinkin about my life
what am i here for
where’s the place i have to be
what are the things i have to do
what’s important what is not
are some of the questions i’ve got

but i dont’t fear the years to come
wherever i will be
because i know if i feel down
you’ll be here for me

you can’t live my life for me
but help me to stand it
what will my life be without you - nothing
you still cheer me up when I feel blue
after all you’ve been through
you’re still here if I need help
i admire your strength

be sure, i’ll stay
always be on your side
when you need me
on your side

GREY

around me just shades of grey
today you turned your back on me
you left me alone on my way
leaves are falling from the tree

you let me down today
a day so grey
you let me down today
down today

will I ever see you again
i can’t find the streets no more
my face so wet from tears and rain
nothing seems like it was before

you let me down today
a day so grey
you let me down today
down today

i won’t give up
not yet
i won’t let you go
not now
after all that you and me
you let me down

DESPERATE

like a shadow sitting here
in the darkest corner of the club
watching you out of the rear
you don’t see me

i fall back into your arms

i like to watch you standing there
in the heat of the blinding lights
when you’re dancing in front of me
i’m still dreaming

i fall back into your arms

i can’t breathe
when you enter the room
i don’t believe
that you feel, feel the same one day

and i want to fall back into your arms

now the club’s doors are closed
your face disappears in the dark
and i shall be the desperate ghost
that i’ve always been

i never fall back into your arms

i never fall back into your arms

A DARK CITY’S NIGHT

driving through a dark city’s night
lights reflecting in the windows
but there’s no place where i can hide
feels like i had an overdose

i want to cry, i want to scream
just want to leave this place behind
i don’t understand this sad life’s scheme
where all the people seem so blind

i don’t know where I am
i don’t know where to go
i don’t know, i don’t know
how to escape this show

i feel so nervous, so unsure
i have to leave, have to break out
but don’t know where to find my cure
since i don’t see what life’s about

i don’t know where I am
i don’t know where to go
i don’t know, i don’t know
how to escape this show

i don’t know where I am
i don’t know where to go
i don’t know, i don’t know
how to escape this show

since i don’t see what life’s about
i have to break out
since i don’t see what life’s about
i have to break out

SELF-CENTRED YOU

and lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil
that’s what you pray day by day
but it’s no use anymore

you're so weak you can't resist
everyday you take the baits
yielding to them again and again
but do you really want to change?

you live your self-centered existence
from where there's no escape
it has been long since you lost sight
of what's important, of what's a lie

the evil in you follows you like a shadow
it became a part of you long ago
making you longing for what you think is best

you live your self-centered existence
from where there's no escape
it has been long since you lost sight
of what's important, of what's a lie

do you ever think about your debts
maybe they will be forgiven
but not forgotten

you live your self-centered existence
from where there's no escape
it has been long since you lost sight
of what's important, of what's a lie

ANYONE

you live in your single flat
caught in the frame of your life
you don’t count the days
til the moment you die

the sun is rising while you’re sleeping
you didn’t dream for long
waiting for the next cup of tea
is there nobody you would like to be

does anyone know that you are going your way alone
does anyone know how you feel tonight when you’re alone

i can show you how to dream
i can show you how to feel
open your mind
you might like what you’ll find

can’t you hear the wind is calling
your name into the sky
don’t wait too long
use it now the light of the setting sun

does anyone know that you are going your way alone
does anyone know how you feel tonight when you’re alone

does anyone know that you are going your way alone
does anyone know how you feel tonight when you’re alone

STAY

I see myself drowning in a sea of lies
no last words and no goodbyes
where I walk only dying grass
there's only one thing you can do at last

get down on your knees and pray
but don't count on me
I live in a perfect world
don't you see

I create myself another truth
far beyond the limits of my youth
now I'm bound by the world around me
sinking down to the bed of my sea
but please don't help me
no second chance, no turning back
no horizon, no coming back

I'm begging you stay
stay where you are
don't try to follow me
you can't heal my scars

the day I walked away
get it out of your head
let me disappear
'cause nothing is infinite
nothing stays forever

IT'S ALRIGHT

it's been a dark and lonely time here
my little darling
i ask myself how i could stand it
my little darling
the time without you at my side

where have you been all these long days
my little darling
the time you were not here with me
my little darling
i saw no sense in what i did

it's over now, now you are here
it's over now, you're by my side
it's alright

time seems to stand still
and i don't dare to breathe
don't want it all to end

i couldn't see the light no more
my little darling
now that you're here i do not want
my little darling
to let you go from where you came

it's over now, now you are here
it's over now, you're by my side
it's alright

time seems to stand still
and i don't dare to breathe
don't want it all to end
and i don't dare to breathe
don't want it all to end

and i don't dare to breathe
don't want it all to end

STANDING FIRM

i wanna know about your day
how are you? how do you feel?
what did you do today so far?
what are you doing right now

too long since i have heard from you
since i heard your gentle voice
i can’t stop thinking of you
no matter what i try

i need you now here by my side
why do you hide your love from me?

i’m sitting here in this empty room
my head feels empty too
just want the telephone to ring
to hear you say ‘hello, it’s me’

and suddenly i recognise
that this won’t happen any more
and i become aware that i’ll
never hear your voice again

i need you now here by my side
why do you hide your love from me?

every minute my hope is fading away
but you stand firm
that you need me as much as i need you
but you stand firm
you stand firm

RUNNING BLIND

until we find love

we're strangers
on our path to god

we're sinners
without a chance to leave this hell

we're cowards
with nothing left to tell

we're possessed
in search of a sense

we're liars
at the sight of the end

we're running blind
through every open door

CALMING LIGHTS

it's not london, it's not new york
it's not the most famous place in the world
and still i don't want to leave you behind
'cause everything i need i get from you

it's not always been easy
but i don't mind
'cause there is this feeling
i won't find somewhere else

the calm of your nights makes me feel safe
the light of your skyline leads me home

i see your lights in the night
and suddenly there is relief
you're so familiar to me
all my grief blown away
so many places here remind me
of people and times
here is where i spent
all the prime of my life

the calm of your nights makes me feel safe
the light of your skyline leads me home

and even when i've to leave
i know this for sure
i'll return one day
to find my cure
right here

DECISION

passing by were days and weeks
you’re the one i always seeked
a common future was our dream
out of the dark there came a gleam

feelings were growing stronger
no need to wait much longer
every day new hope inside my heart
i expected you to step forward

you made up your decision
something i always wanted you to
you made up your decision

you said you don’t know what to do
although you loved me too
but why did you give me all your love
and now pretend to stand above

suddenly my hope is dying
‘cause you just start denying
all these things that have been
and try to wash your conscience clean

you made up your decision
something i always wanted you to
you made up your decision

always wanted you on my side
now I’m just a passenger on your ride
i’m loosing control
i’m loosing control
i’m loosing control
