01. One Million Stars

Million stars, a million shine
Will they stay until morning
If this time is as brilliant
If this time is the time for love

Million stars and a million shinning
And I call them close
I see the colours of death
Oh my God, I’m still living

And I’ve a holy fear of changing aim
And this churning mind is turning in
Like a rolling white stone in the rain
I am gleaming once more, ever will

Do we feel the same
And do we have the claim
If we cannot stand the heat
At any moment we start to degrade
Our full range of mourning
Our full range of broken hearts
And the white doves are rising into flight
They could stay here forever more

Million stars, a million shine
Will they wait until morning
If we hardly even notice
One more time we think we’re in love

And you’ve a holy fear of changing aim
And this churning mind is turning in
Like this rolling white stone in the rain
You are gleaming once more, ever will

Do we feel the same
And do we have the claim
If we cannot stand the heat
At any moment we start to degrade
Our full range of mourning
Our full range of broken hearts
And the white doves are rising into flight
They could stay here forever more

Do we feel the same
And do we have the claim
If we cannot stand the heat
At any moment we start to degrade
Our full range of mourning
Our full range of broken hearts
And the white doves are rising into flight
I would stay here forever more

Eh-eh-eh
Oh-oh

 

02. All Those Days

And I break down these walls
And I‘m coming home
And I see the skyline
And the moon’s running low

And I wake up these ghosts
And they‘re coming, coming
They’ve been waiting for
Been waiting for

And they play with fire
And the light is turning
Now or never
Now or never

All those days
Now – I want to remember
All those days
Now – I want the sun going blind
All those days
I want to remember
We worked out a compromise
Far away are all those days

And I rake up these tales
And I‘m counting the words
And I read the fine lines
And the book’s end is close

And I break down these walls
And I‘m leaving, leaving
I’ve been waiting for
Been waiting for

All those days
Now – I want to remember
All those days
Now – I want the sun going blind
All those days
I want to remember
We worked out a compromise
Far away

All those days
Now – I want remember
All those days
Now – I want the sun going blind
All those days
I want remember
We worked out a compromise
So far away are all those days
All those days
All those days
All those days

 

03. Hundred Lies

Open your mind
And you’ll never understand
I go on our path, I’m going
Forever – ever

Open your mind
And you’ll never understand
I go to our lake, I’m going
Silence – silence

Open your mind
And you’ll never understand
I go to our place, I’m going
I’m waiting – waiting

Open your mind
And you’ll never understand
I stand in our haze, I’m standing
Forever – ever

And a hundred ways, a hundred lies
A hundred cries, a hundred times
I listen to my lover’s tongue
Nothing more to say

And a hundred ways, a hundred lies
A hundred cries, a hundred times
And all my hope is sudden gone
Nothing left to claim

Open your mind
And you’ll never understand
Come to my world, come in
Never – never

I walk alone through your mind
I’m a stranger in an unknown land
Apologize
All right
Never – never

And a hundred ways, a hundred lies
A hundred cries, a hundred times
I listen to my lover’s tongue
Nothing more to say

And a hundred ways, a hundred lies
A hundred cries, a hundred times
And all my hope is sudden gone
Nothing left to claim

 

04. Dancer on a Frozen Lake

And you‘re dancing on a frozen lake
The writing‘s on the wall
And I see you, I won’t catch your name
Like this bird in a fairytale
You’re enchanted by the wizard’s hand
I pray and praise ghost prayers
You’re dancing, dancing
If you’re dancing the world’s in change
A night without a cloud
You go round in circles, seven times
Seven times, round and round
You’re floating above the deep
And the light around your head
You’re dancing on this stage while snow is falling
Oh-oh-oh

I can hardly say
You’re dancing in my head, that’s all I know
And I’m lost in endless time
Lost in daring time
Love is streaming in
That’s all I say
Sa -ay-ay

Still the night is on my side
You’re dancing on a frozen lake
No hope in hell
Like another suicide
And I’m close to take a fall
From this dive, I watch the hours go by
The ringing bells of a sunken church
Blow far into the breeze
You’re waiting for these dancers
Waiting for your dancer
And I watch you all the night
Your aura, all around now

So, how far I keep going
Going now
Seven times in mind

I can hardly dream
In a night filled of glow
Glow of pride

I can hardly see you
I can’t hear your answer
And the night is co-old
So cold and sacred
I can hardly see
I’m waiting for the answer
And the night is co-old
So cold and sacred
Cold and sacred
And this love is here, hour by hour and ever

You’re so wonderful
You’re so wonderful
You’re a dancer on a frozen lake
I’m waiting
Waiting
Waiting
Waiting

 

05. Run Run Run

Down in the rain, the show goes on
The floodlights shining to the ground
Run, run, run I say
Run, run, run I say

And I go to the start
I go to the start
I lose hold of the reins
I lose hold of the reins
All the shadows in my
All the shadows in my heart
Never fading
Never fading

And the winner of the game is a gracious person
And the losing man stands out the door

Run, run, run I say
Run, run, run I say

I go to the start
I go to the start
I lose hold of the reins
I lose hold of the reins
All the shadows in my
All the shadows in my heart
Never fading
Never fading

And I go to the start
I go to the start
I lose hold of the reins
I lose hold of the reins
All the shadows in my
All the shadows in my heart
Never fading – stop running

And the fire in my heart is like these burning Bridges
To an unreal land where good things grow

Ever burning
Ever burning
Ever burning
Ever burning

Run, run, run I say
Run, run, run I say

I go to the start
I go to the start
I lose hold of the reins
I lose hold of the reins
All the shadows in my
All the shadows in my heart
Never fading
Never fading

And I go to the start
I go to the start
I lose hold of the reins

I lose hold of the reins
All the shadows in my
All the shadows in my heart
Never fading – game’s over

Never fading
Never fading
Never fading
Never fading
Never fading

 

06. Down by the Horses

I’m walking around these parts
Down by the horses
Down by the horses

And the stars are hiding fast
And I’m wondering, walking on
And I see the clouds
Now from the sky divorced

And I’m mourning one more time
And I wonder out loud

All I want, my dear,
Is to be
With you again

Come down, down, down
To the riverside and let’s be one tonight

And I hope that you‘ll be back, back
Back and you’ll be mine
Always mine

And together we will wake up
So I beg you, change your mind
Change your mind
Oh change your mind
Oh change your mind
Oh change your mind

Please change your mind

On the top of the hill
I hear this faraway train
And I feel the wind
He’s blowing our dream
Down by the horses

And the train is going fast
And the driver forges on
On the railroad track
You set the wheels in motion

And I’m pleading one last time
And I wonder why – why

All I want, my love,
Is to be
With you again

Come down, down, down
To the riverside and let’s be one tonight

And I hope that you’ll be back, back
Back and you’ll be mine
Forever mine

And together we will wake up
So I beg you, change your mind
Change your mind
Oh change your mind
Oh change your mind
Oh change your mind

Please change your mind

 

07. When We Know

When I’m singing
When I’m falling
When I’m breathing
When I’m smiling

Then you get close to me
Then you get close to me
Forever
Forever

We are lost in thought
New morning

When you’re singing
When you’re falling
When you’re breathing
When you’re smiling

Then I get close to you
Then I get close to you

We are, we are, we are still living
We are, we are, we are still dreaming
If we have our faith, our will
Then we can make all safe and real

And the time will tell, will know
Won’t fear the night, our night’s still young
Before our eyes start fading
We hold our hands and waiting
And this will be one day
What we’re living for

If we know the name of our fear we’re not in danger
If we will not change the way we go
And our loving heart is still a place for teardrops
If we notice all this
Then we know

Now we dream
Now we’re sailing
We thaw the cold

And in our heart
Is all we know

If we know the name of our fear we’re not in danger
If we will not change the way we go
And our loving heart is still a place for teardrops
If we notice all this
Then we know

The fear is over …

 

08. Dragon

When the night brings the dying of caring light
Then your heart’s full of fairies, they’ll
kiss you goodnight
Now you walk through your garden, you do in delight
And you leave all your tears behind

And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down

And your father, the king of this shade-filled land
If only one time he could understand
Even the moon is not here, he is gone at the end
And the dark is your only friend

And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down

And the dragon I am
And the dragon I am
And the princess you are
And the night is your guard

And the dragon I am
And the dragon I am
And the princess you are
And your knight is so far

And there’s nothing you can do, nothing 
you can say
And every night all your dreams look the same
And whereever you will hide, you are easy to find
Now sleep a while, you must be tired

And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down

And the dragon I am
And the dragon I am
And the princess you are
And the night is your guard

And the dragon I am
And the dragon I am
And the princess you are
And your knight is so far

And the dragon I am
And the dragon I am
And the princess you are
And the night is your guard

And the dragon I am
Bringing you harm
And I’m bearing a scar
And the light is so far

And the king in his kingdom has lost his fight
Cause no one is there who got the three answers right
And you lay in your garden, you do every night
And you wait for your lonesome knight

And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down
And the rain is coming down

 

09. I Wish You Could Die

When the night is cold again and I see you
When the stars are dark again and I‘m breathing
Can’t stop the hurting
Can’t stop the hurting

When the fight is old again and I see you
When the signs are plain again and I‘m dreaming

When the rain falls hard again and I see you
When the tears are raw again and I‘m weeping
Can’t stop the hurting
Can’t stop the hurting

And I wish you could die
There’s no one at your side
I should be there, I cannot be
I wish you could die

And I wish you could die
There’s no one at your side
I should be there, I cannot be
I wish you could die

So close your eyes
So close your eyes
Close your eyes
Close your eyes

When the night is cold again and I see you
When the stars are sparse again and I‘m breathing
When the rain falls hard again and I see you
When the tears are raw again and I‘m weeping

Hear my last call
While the nightfall
Hear my last call
Let it all fall

Hear my last call
While the leaves fall
Hear my last call
Let it all fall

And I wish you could die
There’s no at your side
I should be there, I cannot be
I wish you could die

And I wish you could die
There’s no one at your side
I should be there, I cannot be
I wish you could die

So close your eyes
So close your eyes

 

10. Time for Heartache

Like a rising movie star
You’re on your different planet
And you stage your comeback
All these roles you’re playing
All these words you know by heart
You keep on acting out the same

Here is my answer
It’s time to know, time to go

No, not a bloody thing
Just another game of skill
We can try and again we’re losing
If we change without changing

So all this is in my heart
It’s the perfect time to part

And I offered my hand like a blinded man
Now I’ll ring the changes if you go
To your other world
Time to start
Time to part
Time for heartache

Here is my answer
It’s time to know, time to go

See my rising movie star
And the curtain is falling
You go your way so I’ll go mine
The final role you’ve played well
And the end I know by heart
And the end will ever last

And I offered my hand like a blinded man
Now I’ll ring the changes if you go
To your other world
Time to start
Time to part
Time for heartache

Here is my answer
It’s time to know
Here is my answer
It’s time to know, time to go

Your heart-store is closing
Your heart-store is closing
Your heart-store is closing

 

11. Mariannah

I pay a call on Mariann’
And again you’re so far
Mariannah
Mariannah

I’m waiting for you Mariann’
You can’t blame me at all
Mariannah
Mariannah

You’re the heart of this crowded bar
Till the break of day you are staying
Now the sun goes down and a quiet man
Is entering through the door, catches the light
Could I walk down the road once by your side
And all candles are burning
And the thorns of a rose are breaking

If I could change all my life, I would lay down

If I could change all these changes before
And I’ll get it done somehow, I’m stoking
Like a failing star
It was your heart I’ve applied for
Mariannah
Mariannah

I leave it all now Mariann’
It wasn’t me who made you fall
Mariannah
Mariannah

There’s no rhyme and no reason
That your answers ceased to come, they didn’t
And it’s hard to say, it’s hard to tell
I always thought that you are doing right

And I would walk down the road once by your side
And all candles are burning
And the thorns of a rose are breaking

If I could change all my life, I would lay down

If I could change all these changes before
And I’ll get it done somehow, I’m stoking
Like a failing star
It was your heart I’ve applied for
Mariannah
Mariannah

If I could change all my life, I would lay down

If I could change all these changes before
And I’ll get it done somehow, I’m stoking
Like a failing star
It was your heart I’ve applied for
Mariannah
Mariannah
Mariannah
Mariannah

 

12. Darkness

You bring the darkness in my mind
In my life
You bring the darkness in my heart
The poisoned side

I’m running on, running
And the moon is fading down
Is fading down
The moon is fading down

When you leave
When you leave
Then I know, then I know
Then I know, then I know

When you leave
Then I know, then I know...

When you leave
When you leave
Then I know, then I know
Then I know, then I know

When you leave
When you leave
Then I know, then I know
Then I know, then I know

You bring the darkness in my mind
In my life
You bring the darkness in my heart
The poisoned side

You bring the darkness in my time
In my light
You bring the darkness in my words
A nameless rhyme

I’m waiting on, waiting
And the things are going wrong
Are going wrong
The things are going wrong

When you leave
When you leave
Then I know, then I know
Then I know, then I know

When you leave
When you leave
Then I know, then I know
Then I know, then I know
