Track Name: Blind
I was going blind
I almost lost my mind
just to see you
just to see you
as you are

will you ever mind
when I will find
it´s better to leave you
it´s better to leave you
as you are

i am the rocket man
flyin through the sky again

i am the boozin man
losin his control again

i am the voodoo man
puttin a spell on all men

i am the screwin man
screwin all the girls again

Track Name: To Roam
saddle my horse
it´s all because
you sent me away
you sent me away

i won´t come back home
i´m gonna leave you alone
cause you wanted me to
oh yes, you do

i won´t try to bother you anymore
i´d rather die than step back through your frontdoor

home is where i´m happy
to roam means to be free at last
to be alone is the price i pay for all that

gimme me some hope
throw me that rope
so i can hold on,
yes i wanna hold on

stop smokin´ that weed
it surely won´t feed
and give me a reason so i can believe

i won´t try to convince you anymore
it makes me cry that i had ever left through your backdoor

home is where i´m happy
to roam means to be free at last
to be alone is the price i pay for all that

sha-la-la...

Track Name: On a sunny day
on a sunny day we walk
and talk about you and me
and what the future might bring
and the birds sing

on a sunny day we lie
in the grass and we think
about the love that we shared
how much we cared

on a sunny day
in a funny way
i love you still
and i always will

on a sunny day
in one million ways
i love you still
and i always will

on a sunny day we ride
and hide in the woods
so noone can see us
hide in the tree

on a sunny day we kiss
and miss none of our friends
and do so until the end
until the end

Track Name: Dream like love
dream like love
dream like love
it´s a dream like love
a dream like love

monday – writing love songs
tuesday – it all seems so wrong
wednesday – soon i´ll be gone
but tell me where do I belong?

dream like love
dream like love
it´s a dream like love
a dream like love

thursday – I sure miss you
friday – it all seems so true
saturday – when shall we meet?
sunday - shall I stay or leave?

Track Name: Goose feathers
you and i
travel time and space devine
flying like goose feathers
won´t make you mine

you and i
stand in the crowd
with our heads in the clouds

you and i
travel time and space right now
just as two but not together
in the final round

you and i
standing in the crowd
with our feet off the ground

i just wanna sing a song that´s real
i don´t wanna sing a song that´s not real

it´s not real
it´s not real
it´s not real

Track Name: Highways of our times
don´t you be
don´t be scared of me
i´m a lad like anyone else

my face
oh, it can change
from deepest sorrow
to happiness

when you hold me
like your baby
i feel like god has blessed me

and i´m rolling down the highways of our times
trying to escape the scenary of the crime
still hoping that you´ll be mine
that you´ll be mine

don´t you be
don´t be scared of me
i won´t do you any harm

we´ll be finding
a place to stay
where we could live
as happy ones

when you kiss me
like your baby
i´m the happiest man alive

don´t you be
don´t be such a mystery
that´s out of reach for me

Track Name: Croatia
welcome to croatia
seems like a deja vu with the sun

raindrops keep falling
thunderstorm is roaring in the bay

it´s been a hot day
such a hot day all day long

we´ve been travelling
worn out from thin and sticky air

oh what a relief
when you belief
that things will be alright

sometimes it´s just ok
when you fade into sun

it´s alright, it´s alright
it´s alright, baby, it´s alright

farewell to croatia
loved to waste my time in the sun

unspoken language
and being sandwiched
between him and her

Track Name: Treasure of the heart
saw you walk down the avenue
don´t you think of me as the kind of dude
and don´t judge me by my attitude
yes you do and will

let´s roam these skies so blue
once more i fell in love with you
yes, i do and will,
yes, i do and it´s such a thrill

you´re a treasure of the heart
you´ll be measured by what you are
you are my shining star
yes, you are

now i´m showered by this painfulful rain
still feelin kind of restrained
yes, i do and will
yes, i do and it´s such a thrill

you´re a treasure of the heart
you´ll be measured by what you are
you are my shining star
yes, you are

first kissed you on a sunny afternoon
baby, don´t you think of me as the kind of dude
that can´t change his attitude
but i do and will

come on, let´s roam these skies so blue
once more i fell in love with you
yes, i do and will
I do and it´s such a thrill

Track Name: Song of the angels
hear the angels
sing at night
will they come down
and shut the light?

when the whole world
falls asleep
and even the warlords
gently weep

and then i´d whisper
into your ear
that i love you
all world should hear

hear the angels
sing at night
will they come down
and shut the light?

when the whole world
falls asleep
and all the cowards
gently weep

and then i´d whisper
into your ear
that i love you
all world should hear

Track Name: Finger on the trigger
love´s a game
we used to play

politics
where true love could be

painful and hurting
our lessons taught well

but unaware
what all this is about

now put your finger on the triggger of a gun
you say you wanna talk but all i can do is run...

...away from the bullets that will hit my heart
away from the knives that will cut us apart

our love´s still the same
nothing has changed

economy
is the wrong thing at the wrong place

painful and hurting
our lessons taught well

but unaware
what all this is about

don´t waste my time
don´t even start trying it out
and please stop lying
that our love´s undying

don´t waste my time
don´t even start trying it out
and please stop lying
that our love´s undying

don´t waste my time
don´t even start trying it out
and please stop lying
´cause our love´s undying

Track Name: From the dust
i was coming
from the dust
desert flowers
of oil and rust

it´s been a long way
from there to here
it´s been my personal
trail of tears

i make a living
all by myself
one tousand years
in this self-made hell

take care
and still beware
of the devils
out there

troubled water
hurricanes
i had two daughters
now i live in pain

endless summer
endless rain
someone put me on
the devil´s chain

take care
and beware
of the dogs
out there

take care
and be prepared
for what´s going out there

Track Name: Fly, sweet bird, fly
let go
whats needs to go
lift your wings off the earth

no longer
keep hold of
things that will only hurt

let fly
sweet bird, fly
lift your wings
off the ground

yes, fly, my love,
fly away
cause you´re not here to stay

part man, part you´re winged
in the sky your sweet heart sings

tears of loss and tears of pleasure
mix in all these things

let this
sweet bird fly
and lift your wings
off the ground

yes, fly, my love,
fly away
cause you´re not here to stay
