Romeo 05:07
A hard rain’s falling Down at the bus stop Soaked to the bones But hell, it’s a closed shop Now on the wrong side of town Big warning sign But I’m a believer Lurking in darkness like You’re a deceiver Fine: no more nursery rhymes What a mess Please tell me What is wrong with you? What are you crying about? Well I don’t know what to do Stars come out to play But they’re so far away Away from here Be sincere Coz I am Romeo Tears in the afterglow The curtain’s down Get out of town Don’t say you can’t let go Romeo Some things you’ll never know And when it ends Let’s just be friends How little does she know Oh what a joke   Right down the line And straight into dead loss Me the numbskull Lost in a love’s dross Damn, what a peabrain I am You said that I should wait Until your mind’s made up Can I please get back The years that I’ve been trapped No, I should have told you to go I see you lying there In this cold neon light Your eyes are closed Your soul is somewhere out of sight Nothing in this room means anything to me Anymore Shut the door Coz I am Romeo Left out there in the snow When stories end Let’s just pretend That we’ll reap what we sow Romeo Love can be friend of foe Love can be cruel I was the fool And stayed when lights were low Oh what a hoax I’ve waited long enough And made myself a fool My heart was broken though I tried to play it cool Good luck in finding out who you really are Well, I’m done Hit and run Enough of Romeo Well that was years ago My shabby cloak Went up in smoke My laurels even so Romeo No plan if love should go Completely broke A cash-strapped bloke That once was Moonshadow Romeo Well, that’s the way things go These restless years So many in tears But that was long ago Romeo One word before I go Heart on the mend My awkward friend Sure you’ll reap what you sow Oh Romeo

That New Year’s evening saw a star We watched the fireworks afar Your soft warm hand caressed my skin We walked on ice that was too thin The sparkling rain of light above Once more I promised you my love All that was pure and good and true So careless thrown away by you That night we were waiting on the shore For a light that shines no more Yes, we were falling like the stars Too much gravity on Mars All the promises you made Like coloured flags on a parade Flying against an April sky How could I know the end was nigh? You left me out there in the rain As our love went down the drain Turned into little selfish lies My faith in you was my demise That night we were waiting on the shore For a light that shines no more Yes, we were falling like the stars Too much gravity on Mars From everything to nothing In no time at all Why can’t you just come with me Before the bitter end? Maybe we pretend We’d have a second chance How I wished we’d had a chance To start again with our romance That night we were waiting on the shore For a light that shines no more Yes, we were falling like the stars Too much gravity on Mars Where the rain never falls

Last Night 03:16
Your last words Your last words trapped between these bedroom walls “Why don’t we just go away?” I didn’t know, what could I say? If memories were like shining stars If tears were diamonds We've built a castle in the skies Last night I wished you were calling I hoped that you were calling I beat my fists against the wall Your last words Threw withered roses in the lake And as I called your name A crying game, too late But you can't hurt me anymore Your double-dealing love Crept out through my heart’s back door Last night I wished you were calling I hoped that you were calling I beat my fists against the wall Oh, no no no Last night I wished you were calling I hoped that you were calling I beat my fists against the wall Your last words Oh, I hope so Last night I wished you were calling I hoped that you were calling I beat my fists against the wall Oh, no no no Last night I wished you were calling I hoped that you were calling I beat my fists against the wall Still beat my fists against the wall Still beat my head against the wall

As love is passing out What was it all about Could you, would you please explain? I asked you twice before Don’t you love me anymore? But you just smiled and touched my face The sound of falling rain Like shards of glass Bloodstained Why can't we be saved by the bell? So strange it doesn't hurt no more Now that we’ve finally hit the score Guess everything must go Distractions of days gone by on the window pane You keep walking down that lane But somewhere out there in the night We're still standing side by side The nightwind calls And there's no going back No going back The nightwind calls The nightwind calls Too bad we didn’t have the heart To pass the test, not to depart And finish what we've started Now we left everything behind Pretending to make up our mind What kind of mind can be so blind? Accusing me, not to forget You took the blame, a ricochet All things once good turned into bad And even if I understand We couldn’t meet our vast demands Nobody never ever can Streaks of lightning set the skies aflame The wedding bells toll for our love in vain Our joy, our laughter as we wane Like a distant shadow in the falling rain But somewhere out there in the night We're still standing side by side The nightwind calls And there's no going back No going back Hold me tight for one last time For my heart feels cold as rime It's all over now No going back No going back A last distraction on my window pane Why did I let you walk down that lane? Prematurely our love gave up its ghost Abandoned us just when I needed You needed We needed it most But somewhere out there in the night We're still standing side by side The nightwind calls And there's no going back No going back Hold me tight for one last time For my heart feels cold as rime It's all over now No going back No going back But somewhere out there in the night We're still standing side by side The nightwind calls And there's no going back No going back The nightwind calls

Hope I'm finding shelter from the storm  This house cannot be a home anymore  What a lousy final score  People passing by holding hands  While I'm lost in these barren lands of mine  I'm screwed up down the line  Empty city streets late at night  I'm going down to the riverside on my own I’m the numbest kid in town  Is anybody there?  Wonder why it happened again  Why she's still playin' that darn waiting game     Maybe one day she'll remember me  When it's too late  Where will I be?  Is anybody there?

The light pours out of me From a distance I can see That the world lies quiet There’s no denying We’ve been gone too far Wasteland all around But we felt save and sound To act like gods Like imperious conquistadors Don’t you see All our violence floating down like leaves in the rain Don’t you see We’ve been walking this world for much too long Now it’s our turn to fall After the war We’re still as pure as the driven snow After the war The world is burning and they watch in silence After the war Still we pretend it’s all about defence After the war After the war What have we done? What have we become? After the war We’ve been marching to the sound of their drum After the war Only heat and dust as far as I can see After the war All the lies you told were true Now they’re firing back at you It’s all been take, take, take Cause you don’t mind and we don’t bloody care The damage has been done We’re wondering where’s the sun For one last time We’re holding hands And look into our eyes In my dreams I still see us walking, together we stand But I awake as our existence’s bound to fall We’re facing the wall After the war Stay away it’s all contaminated After the war Can’t you take me with you somewhere After the war The bugle sounds as a black rain’s falling down After the war After the war Can you hear me? Can you hear me calling? After the war Will we see another daylight dawning? After the war It’s all over on a Sunday morning After the war After the war Something’s waiting in the night outside there After the war The lurker in the dark comes crawling After the war In the gutter there are bodies without names After the war After the war Is there anybody out here listening? After the war The radio and the TV’s silent After the war Where are you, my love, I’m calling… After the war

Then came the night On the abandoned beach We had a life But we were out of reach Obsession here, desecration there And we didn’t even care Protect and save Oh, how we failed We went too far To be released on bail Now it’s all done And the ashes fall Around us There’s no sun at all We had our chance after all Waiting You know she lay waiting She lay Beneath the deep blue sea She tried to understand She lay for centuries But we just couldn’t see Under the sky Of a barren land Day by day Just stones and sand We walk in line Once and for all As we catch the last rays of light We’re going down And we will fade away We had our time Nothing left to say We called the tune But didn’t hear her plea Now our time has come to an end There's only darkness, my friend Waiting You know she lay waiting You know she lay Beneath the deep blue sea She sees the moon and the stars above She lay for centuries But we just couldn’t see You know she lay waiting You know she lay

Close Hauled 08:00
Woke up from your sleep at night Out there the harbour walls they are still out of sight You thought you heard somebody call Was it Michael, was it me or was it Paul? You’ve been on duty on that night And you know, sorry doesn't always make it right Gael Force 9 came up with some heavy rain Oh, when roses fall it's thorns that will remain Close hauled, close hauled We were sailing close hauled, close hauled Close hauled, close hauled There's a writing on the wall Each night new moon comes into view We are calling for you We never knew that the devil’s eyes were blue Still we’re waiting there for you You tried to hide and ran away The dead fire it led our ship astray And though the storm was deafening You could hear us cry We all were drowning but we died straight as a die Now you walk this world alone, try to forget But comes new moon in December it’s all set Our ghosts will haunt you to the end The Grim Reaper your last one and only friend Close hauled, close hauled We were sailing close hauled, close hauled Close hauled, close hauled There's a writing on the wall Close hauled, close hauled We were sailing close hauled, close hauled Close hauled, close hauled There's a writing on the wall Each night new moon comes into view We are calling for you This ocean became the grave of some good men Still we’re waiting there for you There was no fire in the lighthouse Not the faintest glow Just your screams Listen to me, my restless comrades, under the sea Nobody knows better than me That I have to carry Yes, I have to carry that weight But we are all caught in a trap Ensnared you are in your rightful fury and rage Kept back from death's peaceful domain Exchanged for malediction of blind revenge Whereas I got entangled in a doom loop Of sin and disgrace Tonight I'll be joining you I'll meet you Down there in the deep blue sea Only then there might be hope Hope for us all Hope for you So you don't have to hate and haunt no more And hope for me So that death may come as a merciful release Maybe we all will be free and united again And finally rest in peace Forever

Oh, de la Hyde, where do you lie? Did you come down to Trambley Cove that night? Why did you meet me there? Too hurt to cry? On Potter’s field no guiding light for a star so bright Materiana She can’t stay Her time is over Comes the break of day Materiana She fades away She cannot wait For Ascension Day She can’t walk But she can’t let him go She can’t talk Too hurt deep down below She can’t walk She’s going down real slow She can’t talk She’s gone The sea lies quiet down there tonight A pale moon’s rising over Pentargon Penally Point gets out of sight And there’s no star that I could wish upon Materiana She can’t stay Her time is over Comes the break of day Materiana She fades away She cannot wait For Ascension Day She can’t walk But she can’t let him go She can’t talk Too hurt deep down below She can’t walk She’s going down real slow She can’t talk She’s gone

Snow was falling all through the night, my love All the rooftops are covered in white Don't wanna wake you up so I close the door The cat lies purring by your side Fixing coffee for the two of us It should be ready when you get up Kitchen light falls on the snow outside I'll keep you safe and warm tonight You are so beautiful in your sleep, love of my life And you mean all the world to me When you walked past and caught my eye On that new year's eve I reached for the sky  I wished I had met you so many years before But now that you are here with me By the fireside and the yuletide tree I know I'll stay by your side forever and a day Forever and a day Day's almost done as we get home from work From our daytime jobs where we're doing alright Snow keeps falling on the street outside Your hand in mine in the still of the night All the stars in heaven they shine in your eyes You must be an angel in disguise When you walked past and caught my eye On that new year's eve I reached for the sky I wished I had met you so many years before But now that you are here with me By the fireside and the yuletide tree I know I'll stay by your side forever and a day, my love Forever and a day Oh, forever and a day Oh, my love, forever and a day
12.
And I feel your presence everywhere I can't turn back the hands of time Since you went away into the night And I touched your face for one last time Your face for one last time Still I know that one day you will return And that we'll meet again Hear me calling When the stars shine and light up the night When the snow falls and everything's quiet And these arms of mine holding you tight With the wind I keep on calling Cause you are the one that I long for Waiting for you at the seashore Traversing the abyss of time Arcadia As the clock on the wall strikes midnight The witching hour has arrived I open the door and step outside Oh, I see you waiting by the great divide Of time and tide Deep in my heart I knew you would return You will come back to me Oh, I know you would come back to me Hear me calling When the stars shine and light up the night When the snow falls and everything's quiet And these arms of mine holding you tight With the wind I keep on calling Cause you are the one that I long for Waiting for you at the seashore Traversing the abyss of time Arcadia Waiting for you I’ll be waiting for you Waiting for you

Sail on, sail on The night’s still young Cause the tide is high and we’re getting to Where they’ve gone Do carry on, do carry on For we’ve got no time And there ain’t no place So move on Sail on, sail on, golden swan While we’re still young Oh, dream on Sail on, sail on, golden swan Don’t care what they say They’re all wrong The night is still young Sail on, sail on Before they’re gone We may try to chase the moon From sunset to dawn Forever you, forever young No, there ain’t no time for regrets Cause we can’t go wrong Sail on, sail on, golden swan The night is still young Stop the sun Sail on, sail on, golden swan You’re pretty So long may you run The night is still young

See the girl on the floor As she's watching the rain Like sallow tracks of blood running down Scattered over the floor The sheets painted in black Showing a fettered, mouthless child Her mother's gone shopping and she prays For her daddy not to come home But for Jane's prayers no god gives a damn Her daddy Is back to play with Jane She closes her eyes to break away from the girl Lying raped and abused on the ground No use to commit herself to anyone For who'd believe Jane? She feels hate for being treated that way Is it her fault Daddy's playing these games? She tries in vain to think of something She might have done wrong See the girl on the floor She can't bear it no more Lewdy hands defiling her skin A life like that means not much to Jane The belt round her neck gently takes her away He's closing the door for she seems asleep Those sickening games won't be played any more No-one could explain what happened to Jane She was only one in a million girls Goodbye to Jane
15.
I heard voices from the past Had to turn away at last She wore sadness like a crown As I saw her floating down Now I’m free, now I’m free Now I’m free, now I’m free Your minds’ been led astray And the poor child was bound to pay All your regrets won’t set you free A little girl is all I see Oh, at night and in your dreams All your lies burst at their seams No, you didn’t hear her plea A little girl is all I see Spread my wings, fly to the sky Don’t talk The tears, the pain - all left behind Don’t talk Look at me I’ve been never never so free Thank you, but please Don’t talk Please don’t talk Amongst the clouds a dazzling rainbow Don’t talk I’m not alone With the moon and the stars in the night Don’t talk Look at me I was never never so free Thank you, but please Don’t talk Please don’t talk

about

Hannah Arendt once wrote "Wisdom is a virtue of old age, and it seems to come only to those who, when young, were neither wise nor prudent.“

And as I definitely lacked more than a ton of rhyme or reason in my days of yore, I should be blessed with increasing wisdom now that I’m gradually approaching the golden years. But it’s not on me to judge wether I’ve become wiser or not: come to think about it I presume that wisdom and me never became close friends, perhaps acquaintances at best.

However, when looking back at my life with all the faults and follies I’ve committed, I still sense the innocence and naiveté of the unsuspecting fool that I’ve been. I just didn’t know any better, but I always believed in the purity of love without realising that here is no way things should be. There's just what happens and what we make of it, and once you’ve realised that love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction instead (as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said in „The Little Prince“), you’ll understand the meaning of love. Therefore this album is heartily dedicated to Ayuma, my wonderful wife, my confidante and my inspiration.

These 15 songs on „Foxfire“ are like shards of glass: once you’ve managed to put the pieces together, they’ll turn into the mirror of my life.

"Foxfire" picks up the thread of "A Legacy of Love" and "Not Fade Away" — and it marks the end of a musical chapter, but a new one will be written.
