Track Name: Here Comes The Night
When the moon kissed the silent lake
The nightwind called us
A place too crowded, much too full and loud
We better leave now
I saw you standing in the lamplight forlorn
We gotta get away
Desolation is the price they'll pay
Now that we're on our own

They predicted our future but they
turned heaven into hell in no time
by giving us the heebie-jeebies
while they're driving with full headlight

Here comes the night (for running away)
We won't get another chance (for running away)
It's too late to hide (for running away)
Everybody's on the run (out of our way)
Warning Sign - fading into the night

Children starving in their mother's arms
while the disciples pray
in the church of economic growth
But now their god is dead
Cars are crashing, people screaming blue murder
leaders go insane
The light of hope now a black hole sun
A flashing ray that burns

All we have is each other, baby
We hold and kiss as the rain falls down
Smile for me one last time, my darling
You will meet me on the other side

Here comes the night (for running away)
We won't get another chance (for running away)
It's too late to hide (for running away)
Everybody's on the run (out of our way)

Here comes the night (for running away)
We won't get another chance (for running away)
It's too late to hide (for running away)
Everybody's on the run (out of our way)
Warning Sign - fading into the night
Track Name: Night Train
Same old stories and the same old song
I’ve been living here for much too long
Small town small minds it’s all so bloody daunting
Sitting round with nothing to do
watching stupid movies chinese kung fu
Bruce Lee, Zombie Trash, forget your dream-hunting

Down on main street there’s a danger sign
saying “Caution: Dead End Street lies just straight ahead”
Bored teenagers meet each night at nine
getting soused, pale faces like they’re back from the dead

I’ll be leaving on a night train
Yeah, there’s gotta be a better place
Don’t wanna be a basket case
No, oh no…

I’ll be leaving on a night train
I don’t care and I won’t turn around
Yeah, I’m gonna break new ground
Hooray, I’m northern bound

Out of this town right now
Leave on a night train now
Out of this town right now
Leave on a night train now

School work death — nothing else to do
just do the things they expect from you
but deep inside you know there’s gotta be a better life somewhere, someplace else
Snow’s falling and my bags are packed
I’m gonna leave tonight, well that’s a fact
Cause I ain’t gonna wait til the best days of my life have been washed out

And I’m walking down main street for one last time
with its houses that look to me like a scene-of-crime
I’ll be trading this life for a real big time
but I don’t know where I’m gonna wake up at dawn

I’ll be leaving on a night train
Yeah, there’s gotta a better place
Don’t wanna be a basket case
No, oh no…

I’ll be leaving on a night train
I don’t care and I won’t turn around
because I’m gonna break new ground
No looking back, I’m northern bound

Out of this town right now
Leave on a night train now
Out of this town right now
Leave on a night train now
Track Name: Ocean's Too Wide
Sweet Magnolia
his things are scattered everywhere
Your prince charming
so fuckin' poised, so debonair
The telephone
it rings and rings but no one's there
I ran away
I ran away
I ran away

Once I promised you my love
but that was not enough
Tonight down by the street
He's waiting patiently
Wish I'd still love you but I don't
you turned my heart to stone
and though I hate to go
It's only tears you know

Your ocean's too wide
I'm drowning here tonight
we're floating in a darkness
where the cold begins to bite

There will be no tomorrow
no turning of the tide
a deep blue sea keeps calling
submerging open-eyed

She's calling me
her flowers washed down by the rain
"I'll wait for thee"
no sleep, no rest, no longer sane
but don't you feel
the loss, the pain: it's so inane
No longer mine
No longer mine
No longer mine

I'm so confused, I can't recall
Where did we stumble, did we fall?
I'm frightened and I cry
cause our love has died tonight
You're lost and now you crawl
with your back against the wall
Why did you leave me?
Why did you leave me?

Your ocean's too wide
I'm drowning here tonight
we're floating in a darkness
where the cold begins to bite

There will be no tomorrow
no turning of the tide
a deep blue sea keeps calling
submerging open-eyed
Track Name: The Fire Went Out
Somebody's walking the dog like before
The kids outside at the bus stop like in days of yore
A young guy's pulling the cigarette machine
Out there it's business as usual but here just died a dream

Somebody's ringing at the door
Love doesn't live here any more...

The rooms are empty and I'm on my own
reading your letter the third time turns my heart to stone
The wind's not sounding your chimes anymore
I left my keys on the sill cause I won't return no more

Goodbye my love, I am leaving
It's gettin' cold in the evening

Oh, the fire it went out
it went out so long
Oh, I never saw no cloud
Coming up along
So the fire it went out
It went out so long
A long time a go
And I didn't know
No afterglow
so much for our last show

Was it all just lie?
Until we die?
Was it all just a lie?
Kinda trick of the light?

An illusion divine?
The last test of time?
Track Name: Who You Are
He waited all these years
Lived in dreams and fears
Hoping for a change that never comes
Mirror, mirror on the wall
He’d seen nothing at all
An emptiness inside banged the drums

Like a snake shedding its skin wondering what and where I've been
I was lost among some scriptures written in sand

Searching for the sun
Not knowing what he’d done
A roly-poly toy from pain to joy
A voice inside his head
the last words have been said
He set his sails but never found no Helen of Troy

The bonds that didn’t last turned into ghosts of christmas past
Until the day I woke up to myself again

Tell me, tell me who you are
You’re only human
You’re not a superstar

Tell me, tell me who you are
No more running away from the way you are

Tell me, tell me who you are
You’re only human
You’re not a superstar

You gotta tell me, tell me who you are
Outside - Inside
Inside - Outside
Track Name: Have You Been Loved?
Sure you've come a long way
From the backstage of the past
Till you found out one day
All their assertions just didn't last

Their actions spoke louder than their words
Your dreams and needs seemed so absurd
Too entangled to see what you went through

Have you been loved
Like you need it?
Have you been loved
Like you deserve it?

The way you look tonight
With this sadness in your eyes
I wish I could turn back the hands
Of time and make them look at you
The way that I see you
The beauty and love that you shines in your heart

Yesterday's ghosts sometimes still haunt you
But your spirit keeps up the fight
So brave, so strong - it's no wonder
That you made it through your childhood nights

Now I'm here to stay with you
And whatever you're going through
Even if some tears should fall
I'll be there whenever you call

The past has gone now, my love
You're walking away from what they've done
and together we're facing a new morning sun

Have you been loved...
Track Name: The Point of No Return
Up on the balcony
I watched you walk away but I couldn’t see
That this parting kiss was forever
Oh come back to me
Yet another summer without you
Soon fall will be there
But comes winter I guess I’ll be over in Cornwall somewhere

I try walking in our footsteps
These days passing in a time lapse
I went through anger, hate and frustration
searching for some kind of revocation
We couldn’t fail?
How did it happen?
For a dare?
Everything’s shattered
Darkness embrace me
I’m misplaced here
This is the wrong score
Stranded on a strange shore

The way we were
Our hearts were beating together til something occured
Now you’re up there somewhere in Scotland
I’m left in midair
Guess I’m waiting for your return eternally
But comes the end of December
Let it rain down on me

What have we found?
Just a rebound
Was it worth the price we paid?
What have we gained after these strains?
Remember Penzance Promenade?
What’s the truth?
The importance of who’s right or wrong
I don’t care
We've been fooling around for too long
Much too long, my Love

The point of no return on our way home

Each day my heart is gettin’ colder
The burden’s heavy on my shoulder
Over and over I see the same scene
Trapped in a nightmare not just a bad dream
Couldn’t run coz I was petrified
Tried to swallow my foolish pride
Cities lost forever so it seems
Missing you so much it makes me wanna scream

Last night I had a dream
Me flying high above the sea in the sky
With my arms wide open dazzling clouds passing by
And the mermaids’ song guiding me on my way
To the coastline with its white cliffs of chalk and clay

I’m trying hard to keep my eyes shut
The things I see they are not clear-cut
Tryin' to get you out of my mind
Fuck off, you left me behind
This time there’ll be no substitution
Just like with former dissolutions
Occupying my heart
Now pack your things and run
Because everything's said and done

A saturday back in September
The golden sunlight in your eyes
This day I always will remember
You were the fairest of all brides

The sun has gone,
We’re on our own
Our paradise a fragile dream
A void is calling and I’m falling
Into time’s adamant stream
Called your name into the night but you’re gone
All forgone
Not a flame will arise from the embers at dawn
No more dawn, my Love

The point of no return on our way home

Come to me across the sea
Track Name: Shine
Like the lark in the morning breeze you fly
with the clouds in the sky
Like the waves rolling in on the shore
from days of yore
You walk amongst stars that are shining
like the light in your eyes
Crowned by sundown
and dressed in the light of the moon

Glittering rainbows
A warmth like the scent of the trees
your song that travels through time
comes like spring rain to me

Your brown eyes they shine
When you smile at me
Your brown eyes they shine
with all the love that I see

All the trials of the past
all the hurt you went through
Made yourself only stronger
Now look at you!

Your silhouette revealing itself
sets heavens afire
The wind keeps caressing your hair
as we're leaving the fair
When nightfall is turning our world
in a void out of sight
You'll be chasing the last rays of light
with your heart opened wide

You're walking this earth
with a passion so fervently
Enchanting my heart and my soul
you're a mystery to me

Your brown eyes they shine
When you smile at me
Your brown eyes they shine
with all the love that I see

See your beauty unequaled
A fire I desire
You're everything to me
My love, my life and my light

Your brown eyes they shine
When you smile at me
Your brown eyes they shine
with all the love that I see

Oh, how they shine
Oh, they shine...
Track Name: Creatures of a Jade Lagoon
Just before the rain would fall
I know that we've said it all
We talked and talked
the hours were passing by
but then you went home

And by the river I sat
I was thinking of you
How could I know
that this time it's true?

You dance with the Moon and the Stars
We walk between Venus and Mars
I travel from midnight to noon
to be with you, my love, soon
We're creatures of a jade lagoon

And when I walked home that night alone
the wind whispering softly
our fate's still unknown
Under the streetlight I smelled your perfume
just for a second

Oh how I wished you could stay just for a while
to come up to my room and make me smile

You dance with the Moon and the Stars
We walk between Venus and Mars
I travel from midnight to noon
to be with you, my love, soon
We're creatures of a jade lagoon

And we danced
Kissed the sun and the moon
Track Name: Endless Flow
You're still alive, but older
Now the nights are gettin' colder
The jukebox in the corner
still plays the same old song

You've had enough of cryin'
The game's up, love's been dying
Too many times you've tried
once more you're proven wrong

Observing all the rules
broken careless just by fools
but still love's so much more
than a transient caprice
so hold on to your dreams

Cause love's an endless flow
that leaves no afterglow
to the beauty of our life
far away where passion's rife
Come stay with me tonight
let us keep the flame alight
Til the morning goes to show
I'll never let you go...

She might come like a shower
or in the wee small hours
Just wait until you've seen
the final curtain fall

No, it's not an illusion
in spite of your confusion
your heart's still beatin' and
one day you'll hear the call

They're playing different games
simply interchanging names
But they will never find
what you bear in your mind
(so hold on to your dreams)

Cause love's an endless flow
that leaves no afterglow
to the beauty of our life
far away where passion's rife
Come stay with me tonight
let us keep the flame alight
Til the morning goes to show
I'll never let you go
Track Name: Adrenalin
Once I dreamt to be home again
even for just now and then
while the rain fell down
waiting for a ray of light
A cold wind’s blowing night jessamine
and heather feels like your velvet skin
You’re embodied in
the gale that reaches our shore

At eventide we’re getting to the core
I see the wilderness and storms in your eyes

And you’ve changed my life
with your red-hot fire
you’re my adrenalin
Like a burning sky
you can take me higher
you’re my adrenalin
I see a brand new dawn
Yesterday is gone
Yes, I’m remembering
And if the stars should fall
I wouldn’t care at all
You’re my adrenalin

Your candle burns
in the deep dark night
We’re walking through
the gardens of delight
while this world outside lies quiet
and the things we do feel oh so right
You touch me skin
make me shivering
breathe down your neck
raising trembling and
we’re entangled in lust
the wages of our sin

And we’re drowning
getting down, we’re burning bright
We’re like two shining spirits in the night

And you’ve changed my life
with your red-hot fire
you’re my adrenalin
Like a burning sky
you can take me high
you’re my adrenalin
I see a brand new dawn
Yesterday is gone
Yes, I’m remembering
And if the stars should fall
I wouldn’t care at all
You’re my adrenalin

And we take refuge
with the dawning of the day
and the morning sun shines in your eyes

Oh, you’ve changed my life
with your red-hot fire
you’re my adrenalin
Like a burning sky
you can take me high
you’re my adrenalin
I see a brand new dawn
Yesterday is gone
I’m remembering
And if the stars should fall
I wouldn’t care at all
You’re my adrenalin

Oh you changed my life
with your red-hot fire
you’re my adrenalin
Like a flaming sun
you got me on the run
you’re my adrenalin
We see a brand new dawn
days of yore have gone
Yes, we’re remembering
Till the end of time
you’re my perfect rhyme
You’re my adrenalin
Track Name: Walking With Angels
Too many bad days
So many sad ways
This house was not a home
Trying not to surrender
Sometimes she remembers
How she’s walking all alone

Classroom daydreaming
Words without meaning
Salad days just passing by
But a heart full of sorrow
Hopes for tomorrow
It’s a case of do or die

Hiding inside
Preparing for fight
Now that she called a spade a spade
Detecting the lies with innocent eyes
Waiting for something in the night

She’s walking with Angels
Dancing in rainbows
Talking to the wind, the clouds and the rain
She’s fighting the demons
Waiting for nighttime
When the world around her lies quiet
Don’t you ever walk away

These sides they were choosing
Were just too confusing
But her dreams they never died
One summer in Norway
She did it her way
Turned into a rider in the sky

Sit down here beside me
The way that it should be
I know it is not easy being free
But the rain will stop falling
And angels are calling
For you to fly across the sea

Pushing your barrow for too many years
So steep the path but still you tried to hide the tears
You’ve had enough of their truth turning into lies
You look through them with your all-detecting eyes
What if this town was built of ruins of the past?
What if these solid walls someday came down?
But now you’ve found a way to turn things around
they didn’t notice cause you’ve left without a sound

She’s walking with Angels
Dancing in rainbows
Talking to the wind, the clouds and the rain
She’s fighting the demons
Waiting for nighttime
When the world around her lies quiet

No, she’ll never walk away
Forever she will stay
It’s not easy being free
Talking with the wind, the clouds and the rain
Track Name: Crossing The Line
We are stars
Being watched from the gutter
This is our seedtime
Into light
Through the darkness of Ulthar
We are crossing the line

Saw your strange breed
Far from a distance
Veiled by black night
Cold wind's blowing
Sunset's fading
For ravenous parasites

Still we stand
In silence we're waiting
For the Fates to decide
For the last time
You've missed your chances
Are you ready to die?
Cause we're crossing the line
Crossing the line

All your warlords
Prophets and masters
Paved the way to decline
With their lies, greed
And egomania
Have they fooled you each time

Just a few
Had the courage to fight for
What was worth to defend
But you laughed at them
Making them martyrs
Facing such bitter ends

Still we stand
Anxiously waiting
Their sentence is passed
We're releasing
The Hounds of Damnation
Armageddon divine
As we're crossing the line
Crossing the line

And the Angels came down from heaven
Clothed in clouds and rainbows crowned their heads
And their faces were like a myriad of suns
And their feet like pillars of fire
And they cried with one voice,
And seven legions uttered their voices.
And the angels lifted up their swords to heaven
And sware by her
That liveth for ever and ever
That there should be time no longer

We're the stars
That will never be looked at
By human eyes any more
Now the Earth
A Garden of Eden
Won't have to suffer no more

Hear the birds sing
their beautiful farewell
To the Angels of Doom
Riding back with the souls of those who loved
They'll find a new home

Still we stand
In silence we're waiting
Cause the Fates stll decide
For all creatures
grandeur and freedom
We're defending the line
Defending the line
Track Name: Restless Years
As I’m walking down yesteryear’s lane
past the houses and homes of my life
deserted and empty no lights
in the windows at night it’s all quiet

I’ve been searching in all of these rooms
rattling at closed doors and cryin’
but those years have been fading in time
like a book that’s been never read twice

Goddamn I haven’t seen before
call me stupid, call me blind
a prospect of what might have been
unnervingly entering my mind
Listening to Bruce all night long
as he’s driving away in a stolen car
down the road
riding by night
down the highways and byways of time

Strange but I seem to be back again
from these restless years
Sure it comes as a surprise
but I’m still here
More different than I thought I am
no more prey to blind fear
I’m back again no more being departed, my friend

Wondering why everyone just walked away
left all fucked up one fine day
acting in very strange ways
I couldn’t find the right words to say

But now I see it was all just my fault
every romance comes to a grinding halt
when you lose yourself in someone else
instead of cutting your own path, my friend

Rewrite the story of my life
Forgive and forget if you can
No more dyin’ for you under your balcony blue
been there, done that several times
Yes, I can live on top of the mountain
It’s not cold and forsaken at all
there with you
Me and you
Yes we’ve opened the door to a new world

Strange but I seem to be back again
from these restless years
Sure it comes as a surprise
but I’m still here
More different than I thought I am
no more prey to blind fear
I’m back again no more being departed, my friend

Strange but I seem to be back again
from these restless years
Sure it comes as a surprise
Stay here, stay near
Stronger than I thought I am
forget about the tears
I’m back again no more being departed, my friend
Track Name: Lament for Kira
An instrumental piece dedicated to our wonderful cat Kira who left us much too soon.
