Track Name: Naked
Naked

I wonder who gave you this key
i remember you said it was me
i´m naked now
and i´m afraid
of the day you´ll see.

I wonder who showed you this way
and i wish i knew something to say
i´m naked now
and i know
you´ll find me today.

You want to see my secret sorrow
You came to read my holy book
my private past and my tomorrow
you dig down deep
to take a look

but do you think it´s okay
you know my hopes of the night
and my dreams of the day
the troubles i fight
do you think it´s okay
if you see me
with nothing left to cover me?

Now you stare
At my bare
skin
Track Name: Paradise Lost
Paradise lost

Where do we go
From here
(with) Nothing left to lose
But still so much to fear
Paradise’s lost
Just as you say
Now that we blew it
Where can we stay


And i know that I have to decide
And i guess that I can’t do it right
Every step that I take
A mistake (a mistake, a mistake)


We tried desire.
So now...we’re free
but this freedom is just another word
like in Bobby Mc Gee

This is a riddle
we don’t have a clue
We know what was wrong
But not how to be true

And you say this is all so unfair
But your anger won’t get us nowhere
I guess we’ll have to learn
How to take
On Mistake

Where do we go
From here
With nothing left to lose??
Track Name: Lemonade
lemonade


swallow like lemonade my love
sparkling and golden like the sun
swallow like lemonade my love
my love
soon i'll be gone

and if you wake up tonight
you can see me run
and if you wake up tonight
you'll know i'll never
come back to you again
my love

taste my last bittersweet idea
my dear
lemonlike melancoly pun
taste my last bittersweet idea
soon i'll be gone

and if you wake up tonight
you can see me run
and if you wake up tonight
you'll know i'll never
come back to you
my love

... run...
you'll know i'll never
come back my love
Track Name: Beautiful Mind
beautiful mind

*************
Some cloudy day. I’ll travel to the sea
Dig my feet in the sand.
wonder where you‘d be
And if you still write your stunning poetry

I don’t have second sight
But I ‘ve seen some of it

You have the
Most beautiful mind
That I have ever read
You wrote the most beautiful lines
I cannot forget
You

some cloudy day
I’ll wait beside the sea
(with my feet in the sand)
... wondering
Do you still write ...poetry

I don’t have second sight
But I ‘ve seen some of it

(But I saw)
You have the
Most beautiful mind
That I have ever read
You wrote the most beautiful lines

I cannot forget You
I cannot forget You
I cannot forget You

I’m not a clairvoyant
But some things are clear to me

You have the
Most beautiful mind
That I have ever read
You wrote the most beautiful lines
I cannot forget
You
Track Name: Wave
wave

does my love behave
like a wave ?
does my love behave like a wave ?

dancing wildly
kissing the sky
smashing into the rocks (and)
it never runs dry

kindly offers to carry you
safely through
thunderstorms on the sea
back home
to me
to
to ........... to me

does my love behave
like a wave?
does my love behave like a wave ?

Pushes you,
Pulls you
up and down
you’ll enjoy the ride
you’ll enjoy the ride
though you could drown

you might find a home or a grave
you might be lost
but maybe you’ll be safe
on my wave... (impro)

does my love behave
like a wave?
like a wave?
like a
Track Name: Mermaid
mermaid

today i am a mermaid and you are a desert prince
you're riding through your sand hills searching for somebody
since
the day you told your last companion that her ways would be too strange
now you've changed your mind but she keeps telling you
it's too late to change

i am floating through my little world under the sea
the sandwaves on the ground still look so beautiful to me
fishes dance around me and i'm glad they are with me
but they can't wipe out the loneliness i feel since i am free

maybe in a week or two
i'm standing on your shore
just to leave the silence i can't live with anymore
maybe in a week or two
you'll step into the sea
hoping i could be the one to set your spirit free

I’ll set you free

today i am a mermaid and you are a desert prince
and we both feel a kind of longing that has sprung up with the wind
that strokes your hair and takes a grain of desert sand to me
and makes us feel how cool and empty solitude can be
and makes us feel how beautiful
beautiful love could be

maybe in a week or two...

Track Name: Do You Remember
Do you remember

I can see my dreams pass by
like clouds
like clouds
they’re drifting across the sky
gone with the wind.

Do you remember
do you remember the blue
the beautiful visions
and our hearts
would always be true
I can remember
when i remember you.

I can see our love pass by
It’s nearly gone
for we’ve forgotten how to fly
fand our lightness got lost

do you remember...
do you remember the blue
our beautiful visions
and our hearts would always be true
i can remember,
when i remember you
Track Name: Sorry
Sorry
something´s begun that will end
someday we’re gonna stand here
just the way that we do now
and you will raise your brow
and say you´re
sorry
now.

someone else will enter your mind
someone you hoped to find
although you were with me
and finally you see
you´re just
sorry
for me.

this is just the way things are
we will never get too far
soon someone else is gonna be
your star

sometimes i think what we try
somehow it´s all just a lie
that you ‘ve built up for me
but finally you´re free
and you´re
sorry, so sorry
for me.

this is just the way things are
we will never get too far
soon someone else is gonna be
your star

But someday somehow someone somewhere someway won’t be just
Sorry.
Track Name: Let it be, Mom
Let it be, mom

An orange winter sunset
Just you and me at the café
thought It would be good to see you
Now I don’t know what to say
I’m tired of trying
To make you see
You’re sick of wanting the best
Wanting the best
For me

let it be, mom, let it be
i don’t understand you don’t understand me
let it be, mum let it be..
But you know i’m looking up to you
anyway

I can’t tell where you came from
I can’t say where I’ll go
Our histories entangled
Is there more that I should know?
Now you have to let me
make my own mistakes
And so I’ll go my way
Whatever it takes

let it be, mum, let it be
i don’t understand you don’t understand me
let it be, mum let it be..
cause you know, cause you know cause you know , cause you know
it’s true, mum so true
you don’t get what I say, you don’t care what I do
it’s so true, so true
you know I’m looking up to you
anyway

but
would you hold me again, mama?
Don’t care if you understand, mama

You know I’m looking up to you
Anyway.
Track Name: Tuesday Waltz
Tuesday waltz

and so
i take my coffee on my own
i only talk to myself
i like to be alone

and so
watch the people come and go
i talk only to myself
i’m just that way, you know why

but oh
i’d like to know
where did you go
so suddenly
and i
just wonder why
you didn’t even say goodbye
to me

Goodbye

and so
i take my coffee on my own
i only sing to myself
i love being alone

today
I’ll have my coffee then i’ll pay
i’m leaving all by myself
i’m gonna go my way.
