[x]    
mit beiden armen
der freiheit entgegen 
und dann still mittendrin

bin bewegt
ohne mich zu bewegen
geb mich wind und wellen hin

das weiße wasser 
fest in meinem blick

schwerelos

alte grenzen 
verlieren sich
in raumlosen weiten

und die zeit vertreibt sich 
selbstvergessend
mit den gezeiten

das weiße wasser 
fest in meinem blick
 kopflos konzentriert

setz ich auf das, was ich gewinnen kann
 wenn sich der boden
unter den füßen verliert

schwerelos 
lass ich alles 
schwere los

so leise laut
fern und mir doch endlich nah 
land in sicht

millionen spiegel
reflektieren das licht der welle 
die für mich bricht

schwerelos 
lass ich alles 
schwere los

03 ehrlich gesagt
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    
wie’s mir geht
ehrlich gesagt
hab ich schon lang nicht mehr 
darüber nachgedacht

es geht mir gut 
glaube ich
aber ehrlich gesagt 
ich weiß es nicht

denn ehrlich gesagt 
fühl ich grad gar nichts 
und es gibt nichts
was mich interessiert

und alles, was ich tu 
ich seh dabei zu 
wie mein leben 
passiert

ehrlich gesagt
hab ich schon lange nichts mehr 
ehrlich gesagt
und daran was zu ändern 
ehrlich gesagt
kontinuierlich vertagt

wie’s mir damit geht
ehrlich gesagt
hab ich schon lang nicht mehr 
darüber nachgedacht

ich fühl mich viel zu wohl
unter dem radar
denn alles, was man ehrlich sagen muss 
ist „kein kommentar“

und ehrlich gesagt
ist das kein problem für mich 
denn es gibt nichts
was mich wirklich berührt

und abgesehen davon habe
ich mich erst gerade
mit meinem gewissen 
arrangiert

ehrlich gesagt
hab ich schon lange nichts mehr 
ehrlich gesagt
und daran was zu ändern 
ehrlich gesagt
kontinuierlich vertagt

ehrlich gesagt
wollt ich auch dieses lied nie schreiben 
lieber unauffällig bleiben 

lethargie
schlimm wie nie
alles immer
nur irgendwie monotonie
apathie
immer ein neues alibi

ehrlich gesagt
hab ich schon lange nichts mehr 
ehrlich gesagt
und daran was zu ändern 
ehrlich gesagt
kontinuierlich vertagt

doch wenn ich ehrlich bin 
weiß ich, ich mache
so keinen sinn

ehrlich gesagt
wollt ich auch dieses lied nie schreiben 
lieber unauffällig bleiben
ehrlich gesagt

04 ohne worte
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    
mit dem verstand 
nicht zu erfassen 
mit bloßem auge 
nicht zu sehen

was ich dir
zu sagen habe 
kann nur
das herz verstehen

deshalb schrieb ich
nur diese strophe 
eine kleine melodie 
und vier akkorde

und sage
was ich zu sagen habe 
mit einem lied
ohne worte
 

05 eins in dur
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    
du warst stets der erste
beim kartenzählen
der beste vierte mann
den man sich wünschen kann

die letzte runde
ging uns nie was an
wir dachten, zeit hätten wir genug 
wo doch für uns
alles erst begann

wenn an deinem geburtstag 
die dreißigste kerze brennt 
oder sich das mädchen
das du liebst
zum ersten mal deine frau nennt 
dafür hätt ich dir so gern
ein lied geschrieben
eins in dur

als wärst du gleich wieder hier 
so bist du fort
ohne was zu sagen
hast du einmal mehr
das letzte wort

how i wish
how i wish you were here 
die schönste aller versionen 
stammt von dir

wenn an deinem geburtstag 
die fünfzigste kerze brennt
oder sich die liebe deines lebens 
fünfzig jahre deine frau nennt 
dafür hätt ich dir so gern
ein lied geschrieben 
eins in dur
mit happy end

viele jahre
konnt ich es nicht einmal beginnen 
und noch immer weiß ich nicht 
wie dein lied enden soll
doch ich glaube fest daran
es wär ein trugschluss
wär der schlussakkord in moll
es wär ein trugschluss

06 immer wieder irgendwann
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    
ich liege
auf dem rücken 
der zeit

hypnotisiert
von schwarzem blau

von der farbe
die keine ist
oder noch viel mehr

illusion
was heißt das schon

ich zähl den himmel 
zwischen
den sternen

mein blick verliert sich 
und ich mich

im suchbild 
über mir 
find ich dich

illustration 
der perfektion

gestern wird zu morgen 
vorhin zu gleich dann 
und niemals mehr wird 
immer wieder
immer wieder irgendwann 
immer wieder irgendwann

ich ziehe linien 
zwischen den sonnen

mal dir ein lächeln
 ins gesicht

so strahlst du 
über mir
nur für mich

illusion
in perfektion

gestern wird zu morgen 
vorhin zu gleich dann 
und niemals mehr wird 
immer wieder
immer wieder irgendwann

und gestern wird zu morgen 
vorhin zu gleich dann
und niemals mehr wird 
immer wieder
immer wieder irgendwann 
immer wieder irgendwann

und irgendwann
wirst du immer wieder 
du wirst für immer
bei mir sein

ich habe dir mein herz geschenkt 
damit du eines hast
damit du dir eins fasst
und sagst, dass du mich liebst

ich habe dir mein herz geschenkt 
vor hundert tagen, tausend songs 
den letzten nur bis zum refrain 
nur damit du weißt
wie lange das schon geht
wie lang sich alles
schon nur noch um dich dreht

ich habe dir mein herz geschenkt 
ich hab es ganz und gar verlorn 
pass gut auf, dass es auch 
immer weiter schlägt
weil es nur liebe verträgt

ich zähl die lichter unsrer stadt 
von hier oben kann ich sehen 
wie sie so wie jede nacht
aus den mauern auferstehen

ich zähl die lichter unsrer stadt i
ch seh die sonne untergehen 
ein spiegel unsrer träume
so traurig wunderschön

ich zähl die lichter unsrer stadt
vielleicht zählst du sie mal mit mir
vielleicht, wenn es noch einmal tag und nacht war 
werden wir noch einmal wir

ich zähl die lichter unsrer stadt 
aber deins bleibt mir verborgen 
und so warte ich allein
auf das morgenrot

und es ruht die welt

nur der bach ergießet 
sich am felsen dort
und er braust und fließet 
immer, immer fort

so in deinem streben 
bist, mein herz, auch du 
gott nur kann dir geben 
wahre abendruh

02 loveland
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    

a long, long time ago 
when i was blessed with time to lose 
the hardest thing to learn was patience
i couldn´t wait to fill my mother´s shoes

people say down here in loveland
nothing without providence and fate 
you can try to learn to tell time 
yet sometimes you will be late

i learned to read the city sign 
shining in the morning sun
it felt just like a promise 
the best is yet to come

where time is flowing east 
the past is sinking in the west 
sweet home of heart 
golden state of grace 
where everything is falling into place
all you need is to believe 
you don´t have to understand 
nothing happens without providence
in loveland

some time ago in loveland
i lost my heart when i found you
lord, may you never let this love end
and guide us wherever we go through

the sun was shining down on loveland
under a perfect sky of blue
time was standing still
when you whispered “yes, i do”

so wear this sign of love 
in the name of the father and the son 
and i promise you 
the best is yet to come

that´s where time is flowing east
the past is sinking in the west 
sweet home of heart 
golden state of grace 
where everything is falling into place
it’s been a long, long time in loveland
the day is almost done 
nothing without providence 
the best is yet to come

you will be my disaster if i stay
you will be my disaster if i go away
the sun goes down faster and faster
what´s wrong with me
the last thing i want to do is
to leave you today

rain rain go
go away
come again
some other day

you will be my disaster if i stay
you will be my disaster if i go away
but all the colors of our love 
they have turned to grey
the last thing i do for us is
to leave you today

rain rain go
go away
come again
some other day


04 mary's song 1 (make it last)
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    

When I think of love, I think of you
I know it´s probably nothing new
Lovers come, lovers go,
My love for you can only grow.

So smile for me, show me you care
Let me know you´ll be there
I´d like our present to become our past
and I know we can make it last.

When I think of life, I think of you
You brought birth to my soul.
When I think of spending my life with you,
I know no control.

I´ll smile for you, I´ll show you I care
I´ll let you know I´ll be there
I´d like our present to become our past
and you know, we can make it last.


05 i'll wait for you
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    

if the wind came by and asked me
„what are you wishing for“
i don´t know i´d know the answer anymore

all i know for sure is both
you and i are hurt again
and i don´t really see
how we could make it work ever again

some never forgive
some never forget

i´ll wait for you for the longest time
it leaves me no choice this heart of mine
i hope someday soon
i will stop this crying
but it feels i´ll be waiting for you
for the longest time

if the stars looked down upon us
what would they see in me
a true soul who don´t give up on love
or a fool who just don´t see

all i know is it´s not easy
to leave it all behind
and i don´t really see how i could get you
get you off my mind

i´ll wait for you for the longest time
it leaves me no choice this heart of mine
i hope someday soon
i will stop this crying
but it feels i´ll be waiting for you

i´ll wait for you for the longest time
it leaves me no choice this heart of mine
i hope someday soon
i will stop this crying
but it feels i´ll be waiting for you 
for the longest time

i can´t change it
no matter how hard i try

i´ll wait for you for the longest time
it leaves me no choice this heart of mine
i hope someday soon
i will stop this crying
but it feels i´ll be waiting for you 

for the longest time
i´ll wait for you for the longest time
it leaves me no choice this heart of mine
i hope someday soon
i will stop this crying
but it feels i´ll be waiting for you

i am a bird in an open cage 
i am a bird in an open cage 
i am a bird in an open cage 
sick of home 
but afraid to roam

i can´t stay
i can´t go
i can´t say yes
i can´t say no
i can´t win 
i´m bound to lose 
i can´t help but sing
my sick of home blues

i´ve got the heart of a rolling stone
i´ve got the heart of a rolling stone
i´ve got the heart of a rolling stone
i can´t make up my mind 
to leave my comfort zone

i can´t stay 
i can´t go 
i can´t fly away
somehow i´m bound to stay
i can´t win
i can only lose 
as long as i stick around 
with the sick of home blues

i am a bird in an open cage 
i am a bird in an open cage 
i´ll stop singing the blues, some sunny day 
spread my wings 
and fly away
fly away

[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    

You´ve been leaving me now
For oh, so long
And as the months roll by
I wish you´d finally make up your mind
´Cause all this does is make me cry.

No one could have loved you
Better than me
I still think we could have lived
In perfect harmony
But you said you had more to see.

Let me go, let me be
It´s time to move on
Can´t you see,
You can´t love her and still want me.

Well, it´s not that I don´t love you
Don´t get me wrong
If you didn´t touch me honey
I wouldn´t have this song
But it´s time I´ve been moving along.

Let me go, let me be

It´s time to move on

Can´t you see,

You can´t love her and still want me

hands help
hands hurt
hands heal
hands steal
hands give
hands take
hands destroy
hands create

these are the hands
the hands of history
we are the hands
the hands of history
just like a never ending symphony
these are the hands
the hands of you and me

hands build bridges
hands build walls
hands sign contracts
hands tear down walls
hands grow old
hands grow cold
hands kill for silver
hands kill for gold

we are the hands
the hands of history
we are the hands
the hands of history
just like a never ending symphony
these are the hands
the hands of you and me

hands play drums
hands shoot guns
hands show the way
hands fold to pray
hands can do
almost everything
hands wash away
wash away the sin

we are the hands
the hands of history
we are the hands
the hands of history
just like a never ending symphony
these are the hands
the hands of you and me

13 november
[text]

[x]    

ein ganzes jahr november                         
alles grau in grau
ein jahr lang nur musik in moll
blau zu schwarz, nicht schwarz zu blau

ein ganzes jahr im trüben
nur grelles neonlicht  
geblendet von zu viel wirklichkeit
nimmt es mir die sicht

ein jahr lang steht meine welt still
doch die zeit nimmt ihren lauf
ein jahr lang november
und ich warte auf ...

jahr der zeilen ohne reim
der songs ohne harmonie
im takt der regentropfen
verliert sich jede melodie

ein jahr der welken blumen
der feuer grab an grab
allerheiligen
an jedem tag

ein jahr der suche nach der antwort
auf die alte frage nach dem sinn
ein jahr lang november
und ich warte auf

den frühlingsbeginn

ich schlag die augen auf
atme ein und singe aus
schau nicht mehr zurück
sondern nur noch voraus

leicht ist oft so schwer
und schwer doch so leicht
wenn ich einfach endlich mach
und mein kopf mein herz erreicht

fliegen lern ich morgen
versuche erst einmal zu gehen
ein schritt nach dem andern
glauben nicht verstehen

ich brauche keine antwort
auf die frage nach dem sinn                
denn auch der längste november endet
mit dem frühlingsbeginn

ich brauche keine antwort
auf die frage nach dem sinn                
denn jeder november endet
mit dem frühlingsbeginn

my door

why should i dream
of ev´rything that 
might have been
about what 
you mean to me
when the river still 
can´t find the sea

why should i keep
my eyes on you
try to believe
that someday
we´re ready to see
that the river
finds the sea

01 still waters run deep
[text]

[x]    

i know a place that´s quiet and cool
a place to go to think and ponder
it´s not so far away - just yonder


the grass is green
the trees are high
and there´s a dark deep magic pool
look long enough
it´s very old
and you may see a glint of gold


some friends are so
they´re hard to know
but when they speak
they give you gold
enough to make you laugh or weep
still waters run deep


02 one dollar ring
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    

back in the days of endless summer
when his hair was as long as mine
we were rich without money
the only thing we had was time

he made me laugh like no one else
and always knew what to do
whatever life would bring us
together we´d make it through

he asked: do you wanna marry me?
in the arms of the setting sun
in the days of endless summer
we became one

we found this golden painted piece of plastic in a one dollar store               
he put it on my finger and i promised
i´d take it off nevermore
take it off nevermore

to everyone else it would have been
a worthless one dollar thing
but for me it really was the most
beautiful wedding ring   

we got a place to live
where we felt
safe and sound                  
he took care of making money
he‘s what I built my world around

i don‘t know when it started
the more we had the less we enjoyed
and all the things he bought us
could not fill the void

we became
like we never wanted to be
caught in each other‘s lives
we became routine

i never thought this could happen
it just came my way                                         
with all my memories of those
endless summer days

we became
like we never wanted to be
caught in each other‘s lives
we became routine

i never thought this could happen
it just came my way                                         
with all my memories of those
endless summer days

we became
like we never wanted to be
caught in each other‘s lives
we became routine

i never thought this could happen
it just came my way                                         
with all my memories of those
endless summer days

somehow what i had to do
was really no big thing
i just hid my once beautiful
but worthless one dollar ring

i owe you
one heartfelt perfect picture postcard day
but today
my soul has gone astray
and all your beauty is in vain
how i long for rain

it´s not your fault
don´t get me wrong
i‘ll make it up to you
it won´t take long
until we´re of one mind again
but right now your beauty feeds my pain

i really want you
to be around   
but soon or late
this was bound
bound to happen anyway
no one can be happy everyday

i owe you
one heartfelt perfect picture postcard day
but today
my soul has gone astray
and all your beauty is in vain
how i long for rain
how i long for rain

remember our falling

remember a thousand and one nights
sheherazade and you and me
our favorite fairy tale
our favorite symphony

i remember john travolta

i remember white waters

que ce qui se passe maintenant
est infini
enlacé dans le cours du temps
ce moment devient l´éternité

you´re the kiss of spring in a year of november
you´re the color in my world of black and white
you´re the happy ending in my movie show
you´re the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow

you´re the dream that makes me smile while i´m asleep
you´re the promise, the promise that i keep
you keep me warm on a cold and cloudy day
you´re the song that never ever fades away

ain´t that a lovesong
the way it should be
some beautiful words
and an unforgettable
melody

you´re the one who´s walking with me hand in hand
through the days i never ever want to end
you´re like the smile of a child, innocent and true
blue is just a color because of you

ain´t that a lovesong
the way it should be
some beautiful words
and unforgettable

ain´t that a lovesong
the way it should be
some beautiful words
and an unforgettable
melody

ain´t that a lovesong
the way it should be
some beautiful words
and an unforgettable melody

and i wrote it down
i wrote it just to see
if i could find somebody
who would sing this song for me

another day draws to an end
slowly fades and falls apart
this is where i find myself  
still in your life
but am i still in your heart?                                                             

i hear you breathing evenly
as you‘re lying next to me
after all these years
in synchronicity
are you lying next to me?

you are
so far
away

i know you are awake
as i lie and find no sleep
like the only thing that‘s left
is silence
and a promise we may not keep

you are
so far
away
from being close to me

another night comes to an end
and in the light of dawn
you and i are lying still
separated
we move on

 


11 three minute song
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    

like adam for eve
you´re the one for me
i would steal for you
from the forbidden tree

like penelope
this heart of mine is true
i will wait for you

they wouldn‘t write no verses
about you and me
wouldn‘t name their kids after us, probably
but baby what we have will last
a lifetime long
not just for another stupid three minute song

don´t you worry tristan
everything will be alright
i‘ll come back in a ship
and the sails will be white

like johnny and june
i‘ve got a lotta crazy love for you
i‘ll be there and listen
whenever you play me the blues

like cleopatra
i‘ll pass this test of love
despite all the threats
great love goes over and above

they wouldn‘t write no verses
about you and me
wouldn‘t name their kids after us, probably
but baby what we have will last
a lifetime long
not just for another stupid three minute song

some famous lovers split
some of them died of a broken heart
some seemed cursed to marry
and some just fell apart
even if the legend of their love
forever will remain
bonnie parker might have lived a happy life
if she only had married her high-school flame

but baby what we have will last
a lifetime long
not just for another stupid three minute song

the beauty and the beast
barbie and ken
marge and homer
lois lane and superman

john and pocahontas
tarzan and jane
bella and edward
robin and marian

monk and trudie
scarlett and rhett
seth and summer
romeo and juliet

daisy and chris
paul and eva
richard and judy
christoph and veronika

mary and jack
me and you
and our parents
and their parents, too

there is one thing
we know for sure
even we are just some troubadours
let this be our last encore
true love will always be
worth waiting for ...

with the first november snow

and may the winter freeze my footprints

and when my tracks
once melt away
dry those tears
of yesterday

let me cross your mind
every now and then

and know i‘m fine
i‘m home again

night sounds like silence
silence sounds like blue
blue sounds like
my favorite tune

those days sounded easy
easy sounded great
but every sound travels
into silence and fades

hear the silence
hear the blue
hear my all-time favorite tune
hear my sorrow
hear my pain
do i hear your footsteps
coming back again

it´s not all about anger
it´s not all about hate
it´s about all the things
that i did not say

those days sounded easy
those days sounded sweet
we sounded everlasting
until i could hear

hear the silence
hear the blue
hear my all-time favorite tune
hear my sorrow
hear my pain
do i hear your footsteps
coming back again

hear the silence 
hear the blue
hear my all-time favorite tune
maybe all that i can do
is sit and wait for
the sound of something new

coming through my window pane

year of cloudy sunrise 
year of sleepless nights
year of too many all-saints days
year of neon lights

year of unsung lyric 
year of broken string 
year of november 
year of waiting for
  
year of wilted flowers 
year of empty streets
year of playing losing games 
year of taken catbird seats 

year of aging lies 
year of untold truth 
year of broken promises 
year of fading youth 

year of unplayed chorus
year of out of tune string 
year of november 
year of waiting for
  
waiting for spring 
waiting for spring 
waiting for spring
  
i´m trying to get back
back on my feet again
and i´m trying trying 
to forget forget 
this sad refrain
i will sing my song
i will find the missing line 
and a million 
million stupid reasons 
will make a perfect rhyme 
i will right my wrongs
i will fix this broken string 
after a year of november
will follow 
a year of spring

hands help
hands hurt
hands heal
hands steal
hands give
hands take
hands destroy
hands create

these are the hands
the hands of history
we are the hands
the hands of history
just like a never ending symphony
these are the hands
the hands of you and me

hands build bridges
hands build walls
hands sign contracts
hands tear down walls
hands grow old
hands grow cold
hands kill for silver
hands kill for gold

these are the hands
the hands of history
we are the hands
the hands of history
just like a never ending symphony
these are the hands
the hands of you and me

hands play drums
hands shoot guns
hands show the way
hands fold to pray
hands can do
almost everything
hands wash away
wash away the sin

these are the hands
the hands of history
we are the hands
the hands of history
just like a never ending symphony
these are the hands
the hands of you and me

i´ve given you this heart of mine
so you´ll have one of your own
now wear it on your sleeve
and show the world you´ll never leave

i´ve given you this heart of mine
a hundred days ago
and a thousand songs i´ve sung
i just want you to know
how long that it´s been true
my whole world is revolving around you

i´ve given you this heart of mine
now it´s forever yours
just promise me you´ll give it
what it´s needing
cause it´s only love that keeps it beating

.........................................................................

ich habe dir mein herz geschenkt
damit du eines hast
damit du dir eins fasst
und sagst, daß du mich liebst

ich habe dir mein herz geschenkt
vor hundert tagen, tausend songs,
den letzten nur bis zum refrain
nur damit du weißt wie lange das schon geht
wie lang sich alles schon nur noch
um dich dreht

ich habe dir mein herz geschenkt
ich hab es ganz und gar verlor´n
pass gut auf, daß es auch
immer weiter schlägt
weil es nur liebe verträgt


05 The Day I Grew Old (live)

winter sun 
close but cold 
on the day i grew old

i got up in the morning 
with the smile of a child 
on the day i grew old

i heard my brother laughing
and i was singing
from a distant place
i heard the church bells ringing 
how i wish i´d never learned 
what i had to learn that day
i grew old 
on the day you went away

it was the brightest day 
when the call came in 
on the day i grew old 

you´ve got to be quiet now
my father whispered in my ear
on the day i grew old

we were children laughing 
children singing 
from a distant place 
we heard the church bells ringing
how i wish i´d never learned
what i had to learn that day
i grew old 
on the day you went away

there are things that you lose 
you´ll never get back
there are things that you do 
you´ll always regret
but one fine day 
there´s no telling when 
one fine day i know for sure
we´ll meet again

some stay in shallow waters
but our future is the open sea 
i will fear no evil 
as long as you´re right here with me 
with you i´ll stay the course 
together we will rise above
we´ll set the sails of faith 
raise the flag of love 

some stick to the ground 
but our future is the endless sky 
together we will never fall 
we may even learn to fly 
you make me believe 
as i look up to the stars above 
high up on the skies of faith 
there’s no gravity for love

the heaven and the earth
the ocean and the sky 
belong together for all times 
just like you and i 
just like you and i 
just like you and i 
just like you and i 

the heaven and the earth 
the ocean and the sky 
belong together for all times 
just like you and i

i am a bird in an open cage 
i am a bird in an open cage 
i am a bird in an open cage 
sick of home 
but afraid to roam
 
i can´t stay
i can´t go
i can´t say yes
i can´t say no
i can´t win 
i´m bound to lose 
i can´t help but sing
my sick of home blues
 
i´ve got the heart of a rolling stone
i´ve got the heart of a rolling stone
i´ve got the heart of a rolling stone
i can´t make up my mind 
to leave my comfort zone 
 
can´t make up my mind to leave my comfort zone
i´m as free as a bird up here on my own
now i´ve got to choose because i´ve paid my dues 
with a new pair of shoes let´s kick these sick of home blues 
 
it is clear to me that the time has come 
to stop fooling around let´s go have some fun 
emancipate yourself from the safety of home 
you gonna have the blues whether you stay or go
 
the message right here is so very clear
be true to yourself don´t have no fear
pick your moment and choose your time 
when the blues are gone you gonna be just fine
 
i got the heart of a rolling stone 
free as a bird up here on my own
afraid to leave to know what to do 
still asking myself what when why or who
 
i can´t stay 
i can´t go 
i can´t fly away
somehow i´m bound to stay
i can´t win
i can only lose 
as long as i stick around 
with the sick of home blues 
 
i am a bird in an open cage 
i am a bird in an open cage 
i´ll stop singing the blues, some sunny day 
spread my wings 
and fly away
fly away

the colors of the polaroid
taken on our wedding day
they are fading, fading away
into black 
into white
into all the things
 
all the things i´ve never said 
all the things i´ve never done
all the things i´ve never had
fading sun
 
every song that I play
on my black and whites 
every song is just fading away
out of mind    
out of sight
into all the things
 
all the things i´ve never said 
all the things i´ve never done
all the things i´ve never had
fading sun
 
all the things i´ve never said 
all the things i´ve never done
all the things i´ve never had
every time i did you wrong
all the tunes i´ve never played
all the songs i´ve never sung
fading sun
 
all the tunes i´ve never played
all the songs i´ve never sung
fading sun

ich zähl die lichter unsrer stadt
von hier oben kann ich sehen
wie sie so wie jede nacht
aus den mauern auferstehen

ich zähl die lichter unsrer stadt
ich seh die sonne untergehen
ein spiegel unsrer träume
so traurig wunderschön

ich zähl die lichter unsrer stadt
vielleicht zählst du sie mal mit mir
vielleicht, wenn es noch einmal tag und nacht war
werden wir noch einmal wir

ich zähl die lichter unsrer stadt
aber deins bleibt mir verborgen
und so warte ich allein
auf das morgenrot

[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    

a long, long time ago 
when i was blessed with time to lose 
the hardest thing to learn was patience
i couldn´t wait to fill my mother´s shoes

people say down here in loveland
nothing without providence and fate 
you can try to learn to tell time 
yet sometimes you will be late

i learned to read the city sign 
shining in the morning sun
it felt just like a promise 
the best is yet to come

where time is flowing east 
the past is sinking in the west 
sweet home of heart 
golden state of grace 
where everything is falling into place
all you need is to believe 
you don´t have to understand 
nothing happens without providence
in loveland

some time ago in loveland
i lost my heart when i found you
lord, may you never let this love end
and guide us wherever we go through

the sun was shining down on loveland
under a perfect sky of blue
time was standing still
when you whispered “yes, i do”

so wear this sign of love 
in the name of the father and the son 
and i promise you 
the best is yet to come

that´s where time is flowing east
the past is sinking in the west 
sweet home of heart 
golden state of grace 
where everything is falling into place 
all you need is to believe
you don´t have to understand
nothing without providence 
in loveland

time goes by so fast
the more you´ve had the less you have to lose
between working nine to five 
and lacing up your children´s shoes
just let go what you can´t change 
and change what you can´t let go 
that´s what i tried to learn 
a long, long time ago

time is flowing east 
the past is sinking in the west 
sweet home of heart 
golden state of grace
where everything is falling into place 
it’s been a long, long time in loveland
the day is almost done 
nothing without providence 
the best is yet to come

you will be my disaster if i stay
you will be my disaster if i go away
the sun goes down faster and faster
what´s wrong with me
the last thing i want to do is
to leave you today

rain rain go
go away
come again
some other day

you will be my disaster if i stay
you will be my disaster if i go away
but all the colors of our love 
they have turned to grey
the last thing i do for us is
to leave you today

rain rain go
go away
come again
some other day

why should i keep
why should i keep
my door 
wide open to see
that the river 
can´t find the sea
 
why should i dream
of ev´rything that 
might have been
about what 
you mean to me
when the river still 
can´t find the sea
 
why should i keep
my eyes on you
try to believe
that someday
we´re ready to see
that the river
finds the sea

the hills on the left
the ocean on the right 
i just headed out 
i never said goodbye
 
as i rode out on highway one
the sun was shining all the way
but my mind was full of clouds
how i wished that i could stay 
 
it felt like leaving home 
on that sunny summer day
when i didn´t say goodbye
to ventura, ca 
and the place where i came from 
felt more than just a thousand miles away 
as i rode out 
of ventura, ca
 
i cried with the violins 
by the flowers and the trees
the heavy 29s 
were playing just for me 
 
i looked into the mirror
and saw the water one more time
the reflection´s getting smaller 
but it’s forever on my mind 
 
it felt like leaving home 
on that sunny summer day 
when i didn´t say goodbye 
to ventura, ca 
and the place where i came from 
felt more than just a thousand miles away
as i rode out 
of ventura, ca 
 
i miss the watermark on main 
the california blues 
the rock in morro bay
the hook in santa cruz 
home is where the heart is 
feels truer day by day 
i left a part of my heart
more than just a thousand miles away
 
it felt like leaving home 
on that sunny summer day 
when i couldn´t say goodbye
to ventura, ca 
and the place where i came from 
felt more than just a thousand miles away

it felt like leaving home 
on that sunny summer day 
when i didn´t say goodbye

02 happy birthday

 [druckversion]
[x]    
no serenade 
no apple pie
no candles to blow out
nobody coming by
no shaking hands
no silly games
no hugs, no gifts, no toys
no cheap champagne
 
but it´s alright 
i´m doing fine
i don´t need anyone
cause i don´t share my wine
this is my life
this is my song
it´s just my birthday
and i´m a thousand miles
from home
a thousand miles from home
 
no greeting cards
no telephone calls
no disco music and
no party dolls
no fancy clothes
no funny hats
no drinks, no sipping out of 
plastic cups
 
but it´ alright 
i´m doing fine
i don´t need anyone
cause i don´t share my wine
this is my life
this is my song
it´s just my birthday
and i´m a thousand miles
away from home
a thousand miles from home
 
so i guess this is the price 
the price i have to pay
for living this life
for walking this way
i used to act like i am strong
but i´d give anything for someone here
to sing me a birthday song
 
but it´s alright
i´m doing fine
i don´t need anyone
cause i don´t share my wine
this is my life
this is my song
it´s just my birthday
and i´m thousand miles
from home
 
i´m doing fine
i don´t need anyone
cause i don´t share my wine
this is my life
this is my song
it´s just my birthday
and i´m thousand miles
away from home
a thousand miles from home
it´s just my birthday
and i´m thousand miles
from home

year of trying to get back
back on my feet again
year of trying to forget
forget this sad refrain
year of unfinished poem
searching for the missing line 
year of a million stupid reasons
year without a perfect rhyme
year of unsung lyric 
year of broken string
year of waiting for

year of minor music 
year of love in vain
year of a thousand shades of grey 
coming through my window pane

year of cloudy sunrise 
year of sleepless nights
year of too many all-saints days
year of neon lights

year of unsung lyric 
year of broken string 
year of november 
year of waiting for

year of wilted flowers 
year of empty streets
year of playing losing games 
year of taken catbird seats 

year of aging lies 
year of untold truth 
year of broken promises 
year of fading youth 

year of unplayed chorus
year of out of tune string 
year of november 
year of waiting for

waiting for spring 
waiting for spring 
waiting for spring

 i´m trying to get back
back on my feet again
and i´m trying trying 
to forget forget 
this sad refrain
i will sing my song
i will find the missing line 
and a million 
million stupid reasons 
will make a perfect rhyme 
i will right my wrongs
i will fix this broken string 
after a year of november
will follow 
a year of spring

some stay in shallow waters
but our future is the open sea 
i will fear no evil 
as long as you´re right here with me

together we will rise above
we´ll set the sails of faith 
raise the flag of love 

some stick to the ground 
but our future is the endless sky 
together we will never fall 
we may even learn to fly 
you make me believe 
as i look up to the stars above 
high up on the skies of faith 
there’s no gravity for love

the heaven and the earth
the ocean and the sky 
belong together for all times 
just like you and i 
just like you and i 
just like you and i 
just like you and i 

the heaven and the earth 
the ocean and the sky 
belong together for all times 
just like you and i

be true to yourself don´t have no fear
pick your moment and choose your time 
when the blues are gone you gonna be just fine

i got the heart of a rolling stone 
free as a bird up here on my own
afraid to leave to know what to do 
still asking myself what when why or who

i can´t stay 
i can´t go 
i can´t fly away
somehow i´m bound to stay
i can´t win
i can only lose 
as long as i stick around 
with the sick of home blues

i am a bird in an open cage 
i am a bird in an open cage 
i´ll stop singing the blues, some sunny day 
spread my wings 
and fly away

mess up, black out, the big yellow one

now that i´m back 
from my trip to the sun
i see that you know
that i did you wrong 
why i was climbing 
why i was trying 
to mess up the sun

mess up, black out, mess up the sun
mess up, black out, the big yellow one

take time for love 
eternity 
and know how much you´re loved by me

from a distant place
i heard the church bells ringing 
how i wish i´d never learned 
what i had to learn that day
i grew old 
on the day you went away

it was the brightest day 
when the call came in 
on the day i grew old 

you´ve got to be quiet now
my father whispered in my ear
on the day i grew old

we were children laughing 
children singing 
from a distant place 
we heard the church bells ringing
how i wish i´d never learned
what i had to learn that day
i grew old 
on the day you went away

there are things that you lose 
you´ll never get back
there are things that you do 
you´ll always regret
but one fine day 
there´s no telling when 
one fine day i know for sure
we´ll meet again 


11 city lights

i sit and count the city lights 
from high above here i can see
how they come on every night
i wonder which one shines for me

i sit and count the city lights
i have watched the sunlight fade
this is what my dreams are like 
beautiful but far away

i sit and count the city lights 
they shine so bright and true 
maybe there will come another night
i´ll be counting them with you

i sit up here all through the night 
waiting for you to come
counting all those city lights
into the morning sun

i´ve given you this heart of mine
so you´ll have one of your own
now wear it on your sleeve
and show the world you´ll never leave

i´ve given you this heart of mine
a hundred days ago
and a thousand songs i´ve sung
i just want you to know
how long that it´s been true
my whole world is revolving around you

i´ve given you this heart of mine
now it´s forever yours
just promise me you´ll give it
what it´s needing
cause it´s only love that keeps it beating

.........................................................................

ich habe dir mein herz geschenkt
damit du eines hast
damit du dir eins fasst
und sagst, daß du mich liebst

ich habe dir mein herz geschenkt
vor hundert tagen, tausend songs,
den letzten nur bis zum refrain
nur damit du weißt wie lange das schon geht
wie lang sich alles schon nur noch
um dich dreht

ich habe dir mein herz geschenkt
ich hab es ganz und gar verlor´n
pass gut auf, daß es auch
immer weiter schlägt
weil es nur liebe verträgt

the hills on the left
the ocean on the right 
i just headed out 
i never said goodbye
 
as i rode out on highway one
the sun was shining all the way
but my mind was full of clouds
how i wished that i could stay 
 
it felt like leaving home 
on that sunny summer day
when i didn´t say goodbye
to ventura, ca 
and the place where i came from 
felt more than just a thousand miles away 
as i rode out 
of ventura, ca
 
i cried with the violins 
by the flowers and the trees
the heavy 29s 
were playing just for me 
 
i looked into the mirror
and saw the water one more time
the reflection´s getting smaller 
but it’s forever on my mind 
 
it felt like leaving home 
on that sunny summer day 
when i didn´t say goodbye 
to ventura, ca 
and the place where i came from 
felt more than just a thousand miles away
as i rode out 
of ventura, ca 
 
i miss the watermark on main 
the california blues 
the rock in morro bay
the hook in santa cruz 
home is where the heart is 
feels truer day by day 
i left a part of my heart
more than just a thousand miles away
 
it felt like leaving home 
on that sunny summer day 
when i couldn´t say goodbye
to ventura, ca 
and the place where i came from 
felt more than just a thousand miles away 
as i rode out 
 
it felt like leaving home 
on that sunny summer day 
when i didn´t say goodbye
to ventura, ca 
and the place where i came from 
felt more than just a thousand miles away
as i rode out 
 
i know i´ll come back home
on a sunny summer day
to my californ-i-a

01 year of november - radio edit
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    

year of trying to get back
back on my feet again
year of trying to forget
forget this sad refrain
year of unfinished poem
searching for the missing line 
year of a million stupid reasons
year without a perfect rhyme
year of unsung lyric 
year of broken string
year of waiting for

year of minor music 
year of love in vain
year of a thousand shades of grey 
coming through my window pane

year of cloudy sunrise 
year of sleepless nights
year of too many all-saints days
year of neon lights

year of unsung lyric 
year of broken string 
year of november 
year of waiting for

year of wilted flowers 
year of empty streets
year of playing losing games 
year of taken catbird seats 

year of aging lies 
year of untold truth 
year of broken promises 
year of fading youth 

year of unplayed chorus
year of out of tune string 
year of november 
year of waiting for

waiting for spring 
waiting for spring 
waiting for spring

 i´m trying to get back
back on my feet again
and i´m trying trying 
to forget forget 
this sad refrain
i will sing my song
i will find the missing line 
and a million 
million stupid reasons 
will make a perfect rhyme 
i will right my wrongs
i will fix this broken string 
after a year of november
will follow 
a year of spring

 


02 you and i
[text]

[x]    

some stay in shallow waters
but our future is the open sea 
i will fear no evil 
as long as you´re right here with me 
with you i´ll stay the course 
together we will rise above
we´ll set the sails of faith 
raise the flag of love 

some stick to the ground 
but our future is the endless sky 
together we will never fall 
we may even learn to fly 
you make me believe 
as i look up to the stars above 
high up on the skies of faith 
there’s no gravity for love

the heaven and the earth
the ocean and the sky 
belong together for all times 
just like you and i 
just like you and i 
just like you and i 
just like you and i 

the heaven and the earth 
the ocean and the sky 
belong together for all times 
just like you and i

the colors of the polaroid
taken on our wedding day
they are fading, fading away
into black 
into white
into all the things

all the things i´ve never said 
all the things i´ve never done
all the things i´ve never had
fading sun

every song that I play
on my black and whites 
every song is just fading away
out of mind    
out of sight
into all the things

all the things i´ve never said 
all the things i´ve never done
all the things i´ve never had
fading sun

all the things i´ve never said 
all the things i´ve never done
all the things i´ve never had
every time i did you wrong
all the tunes i´ve never played
all the songs i´ve never sung

night sounds like silence
silence sounds like blue
blue sounds like
my favorite tune

those days sounded easy
easy sounded great
but every sound travels
into silence and fades

hear the silence
hear the blue
hear my all-time favorite tune
hear my sorrow
hear my pain
do i hear your footsteps
coming back again

it´s not all about anger
it´s not all about hate
it´s about all the things
that i did not say

those days sounded easy
those days sounded sweet
we sounded everlasting
until i could hear

hear the silence
hear the blue
hear my all-time favorite tune
hear my sorrow
hear my pain
do i hear your footsteps
coming back again

hear the silence 
hear the blue
hear my all-time favorite tune
maybe all that i can do

hands help
hands hurt
hands heal
hands steal
hands give
hands take
hands destroy
hands create

these are the hands
the hands of history
we are the hands
the hands of history
just like a never ending symphony
these are the hands
the hands of you and me

hands build bridges
hands build walls
hands sign contracts
hands tear down walls
hands grow old
hands grow cold
hands kill for silver
hands kill for gold

these are the hands
the hands of history
we are the hands
the hands of history
just like a never ending symphony
these are the hands
the hands of you and me

hands play drums
hands shoot guns
hands show the way
hands fold to pray
hands can do
almost everything
hands wash away
wash away the sin

these are the hands
the hands of history
we are the hands
the hands of history
just like a never ending symphony
these are the hands
the hands of you and me

[text]

alles ist wie immer
immer gibt´s nicht mehr
mehr war schon immer zu wenig
 
es gibt wenig zu sagen
sagen ist nicht reden
wir reden von grau zu schwarz
 
schwarz ist mein weiß
weiß ist mir zu bunt
bunt ist was war – es ist vorbei
 
vorbei ist was noch gekommen wär
es kommt wie es geht
wir gehen nicht zusammen
sondern jeder seinen weg
 
ich kann nicht mehr vertrauen
nicht dir 
nicht meinen augen
weil alles 
weil alles verschwimmt
es heißt liebe macht blind
verlorene liebe auch
weil alles 
weil alles verschwimmt
 
rund ist jetzt eckig
doch sieht´s noch rund  aus
aus – das ende fängt an
 
am anfang war alles klar
klar ist jetzt nichts
nichts – das neue wort
 
worte unausgesprochen
sprechen für sich
sicher bricht ein zum nichts
 
nichts sehen, nichts hören
das hört jetzt auf
aufsehen, verstehen und gehen
 
ich kann nicht mehr vertrauen
nicht dir 
nicht meinen augen
weil alles 
weil alles verschwimmt
es heißt liebe macht blind
verlorene liebe auch
weil alles 
weil alles verschwimmt

06 happy birthday
[text]
 [druckversion]
[x]    
no serenade 
no apple pie
no candles to blow out
nobody coming by
no shaking hands
no silly games
no hugs, no gifts, no toys
no cheap champagne
 
but it´s alright 
i´m doing fine
i don´t need anyone
cause i don´t share my wine
this is my life
this is my song
it´s just my birthday
and i´m a thousand miles
from home
a thousand miles from home
 
no greeting cards
no telephone calls
no disco music and
no party dolls
no fancy clothes
no funny hats
no drinks, no sipping out of 
plastic cups
 
but it´ alright 
i´m doing fine
i don´t need anyone
cause i don´t share my wine
this is my life
this is my song
it´s just my birthday
and i´m a thousand miles
away from home
a thousand miles from home
 
so i guess this is the price 
the price i have to pay
for living this life
for walking this way
i used to act like i am strong
but i´d give anything for someone here
to sing me a birthday song
 
but it´s alright
i´m doing fine
i don´t need anyone
cause i don´t share my wine
this is my life
this is my song
it´s just my birthday
and i´m thousand miles
from home
 
i´m doing fine
i don´t need anyone
cause i don´t share my wine
this is my life
this is my song
it´s just my birthday
and i´m thousand miles

a thousand miles from home
it´s just my birthday
and i´m thousand miles

when you´re with me 
i finally feel complete
when you´re with me
i can´t stop dancing in the streets
when you´re with me 
there´s nothing to fear, nothing to hide
when you´re with me
there´s no star shining as bright
  
as our love
as our love
as our love
as our love

it´s been a while
since i´ve heard the blackbird´s song
it´s been a while
since i´ve seen it flying high against the sun
i´ve been asleep so many days
so many nights i searched the sky
for that bird to lead me home
(but) now the stars are out of sight

hey, is there anybody listening
is anyone there – i´m in despair

it´s been a while
since the blackbird´s flown away
it´s been a while
i used to see it every day
i´ve been too many nights awake
too many days i missed the nights
when we cried at the moon
now the moon is out of sight

hey, is there anybody listening
is anyone there
is there anybody at all 
does anyone care
i´m in despair
my world´s in disrepair
does anyone care

hey, is there anybody listening

is there anybody at all

would you paint a masterpiece
that you knew
no one would ever see

would you hold on and believe
if you knew
that love´s a mystery

this is what i would do
this i´d do for you

would you let me go away

this is what i´d never do

if the wind came by and asked me
„what are you wishing for“
i don´t know i´d know the answer anymore

all i know for sure is both
you and i are hurt again
and i don´t really see
how we could make it work ever again

some never forgive
some never forget

i´ll wait for you for the longest time
it leaves me no choice this heart of mine
i hope someday soon
i will stop this crying
but it feels i´ll be waiting for you
for the longest time

if the stars looked down upon us
what would they see in me
a true soul who don´t give up on love
or a fool who just don´t see

all i know is it´s not easy
to leave it all behind
and i don´t really see how i could get you
get you off my mind

i´ll wait for you for the longest time
it leaves me no choice this heart of mine
i hope someday soon
i will stop this crying
but it feels i´ll be waiting for you

i´ll wait for you for the longest time
it leaves me no choice this heart of mine
i hope someday soon
i will stop this crying
but it feels i´ll be waiting for you 
for the longest time

i can´t change it
no matter how hard i try

i´ll wait for you for the longest time
it leaves me no choice this heart of mine
i hope someday soon
i will stop this crying
but it feels i´ll be waiting for you 

for the longest time
i´ll wait for you for the longest time
it leaves me no choice this heart of mine
i hope someday soon
i will stop this crying
but it feels i´ll be waiting for you

on new years day
on the end of carnival
on the first day of spring
and when the rain would fall
when the sun goes down
when we see morning light
through the longest day
through the darkest night
