01. Beautiful One

Beautiful One
Your hair shines in the sun
I wish I'd never left

The wind intwines our hair
Our words get swept through the air
I wish I never left

Your face shines in my eyes
Our last look before our goodbye
I wish I never left

Beautiful One
You shine like the sun
I wish I never left
Before I have said
You are the one
You are the one

Your sun will come and go
But its beauty will keep its glow
I wish your rays would shine over me
Keep filling me with your beauty
I wish I never left
I wish I never left


02. Witnesses

No change no pleasure no jokes no sex
No choice no morals no ethics no depth
No colour no fight no freedom no life
Profound creation, temptation is swept

I hear knocking on my door

I wonder how it's possible
That I just sit here in my room
Watching some TV
Thinking of nothing and nothing
And I don't know how
Does anybody have the nerve
To come to my door
And sell the world of God

I wonder what's the remedy
And I can move on with my life
Before you people are through
With the extinction of the universe

You save the world from me
I wonder who will be left over...


03. Yalin

My friend she's gone away
And left us here to stay
And I understand
I do

You write and think of her
About whatever may occur
We ask the clouds in the sky
We do

When you were here you didn't fit us
When you passed over it hit us
You are the one who knew
The only hidden truth

We write and think of her
About whatever may occur
We ask the clouds in the sky
We do

When you were here you didn't fit us
When you passed over it hit us
You are the one who knew
The only hidden truth

Thirty-four and I am only beginning to understand
What this is all about
Do you think you will be able
To forgive me?
Do you?


04. Day After Yesterday

Today is the day after yesterday
And yesterday didn't go so well
My love came down and assured me:
Sit down I have something to tell

When I met you my eyes hurt
That is how beautiful you are
I don't suppose I could feel this way
If I'd still have you by my side
By my side

I did not anticipate your candour
Even though I didn't know you too well
They say one door closed another door open
But these door is leading me straight to hell

When I met you my eyes hurt
That is how beautiful you are
I don't suppose I could feel this way
If I'd still have you by my side
By my side

I'm just broken up
I'm caving in
That is how tired I am
I don't suppose I could feel all this way...


05. My Girl

My hands are tied
I'm on your side
You are my girl

I hold your hand
And understand
You are my girl, my girl

She has to learn
To walk on artificial grass
They have to earn
Her love

Your big embrace
Has kept me in this place
My girl

And when we changed
We did not lose our faces
My girl

She has to learn
To walk on artificial grass
They have to earn
Her love

Now all is said and done
My friend
We're growing up

And now that we are
What we have become
I still don't know
Sometimes

She has to learn
To walk on artificial grass
They have to earn her love


06. Take Care Of Me

Hush in my hands
There's not a thing ever so precious
Than you in my hands
you can never let me leave you

So please
Take care of me

Hail in my hands
The euphoric feel will never part with me
I spend my time in your hands
I'm as in love as I am tired

So please
Take care of me


07. Ice Water

I shield you from this life
Your heart is kept on ice
I file you where I need
And keep you from the heat

Running, running away

You hold me in contempt
Forever will I depend?
You file me where you need
But never kept me from the heat

Falling, falling away
(I shield you, I shield you away
On the surface, on the surface)

It's always cold in hell
I have felt it, I can tell
They file you where they need
In ice water there is no heat

Burning, burning away
(I shield you, I shield you away
On the surface, on the surface)

Burning, burning away
Burning, burning away


08. You Are Nice!

You are nice!

Oh, you are nice
Paradise
I say it only twice
Man, you are nice

Your skin soft like veil
Warm but pale

Oh, you are great
Fascinating
I'll blow you out of my mind
Damn, you are fine

Your skin soft like veil
Warm but pale
Oh, you are sweet
Sweep me off my feet

Oh, you are nice
Para-holy-dise
I'll say it only twice
Man, you are nice

Your skin soft like veil
Warm but pale
Oh, you are sweet
Sweep me off my feet


09. Trail Of Grief

Mister I cannot read you
Your eyes are clouds of mist
Well well, how can I heed you?
I wish you did not exist

Uncover me
I hail to see
Your mystic trail of grief

It's funny how my heart feeds
On overload
It will never lead me though
I am just too old

For this game
I bear to see
Your mystic trail of grief

Uncover me

Uncover me


10. Come Wander With Me

He said
Come wander with me, Love
Come wander with me
Away from this sad world
Come wander with me

He came from the sunset
He came from the sea
He came from my sorrow
And can love only me

Oh where is the wanderer
Who wandered this way
He's passed on his wandering
And will never go away

He sang of a sweet love
Of dreams that would be
But I was sworn to another
And could never be free


11. Sunken Soldiers Ball

I can't go home
I cannot sleep
I cannot give
I cannot keep

This heart of stone has left me here
With only rumors of your left
I guess to see you leaving was for the best

I drink too much
and spend my days
Like a sailor lost at sea
And you were like a mermaid
in that Danish fairytale
I guess the best thing that I could do
is to sail

Away from this sunken soldiers ball
Away, do you remember me at all?
I have no better words than "Thank you and goodbye"
I wish I didn't have to see our love die

At last I'm home
My horse will rest
This tattoed heart
This trembling chest must be alone
And carry this sorrow back to bed
I hope there was no innocent blood shed

Away from this sunken soldiers ball
Away, do you remember me at all?
I have no better words than "Thank you and goodbye"
I wish I didn't have to see our love die


12. Lost And Found

I sit in your chair
You are aware of me and my life
You speak of words that are unheard of
Though many await your time

The Belgian men with the Dutch accent
You are a shining star
Your hands, they reach through all of our lives
This far in the universe you are

You are, you are, you are

The hardest thing in the world is to speak my fears
I am afraid to let go
My beautiful boys, I love you the most
With you I share my life in joy

In joy, in joy, in joy

I sit in your chair
The room that we are in is filled with people from the past
It's you who cares and all that I live for
Is to have a home that lasts

A home, a home, a home


13. Asleep

Come in, my love
Tell me, and I'll come with you
To these lovely places

And I will believe in you
When you are asleep
