GIVE YOURSELF SOME TIME

 

Before you find somebody else, you gotta find yourself,

before you find somebody new, you gotta love what you do,

this bird has flown away, the aerie is not a place to stay,

each time she leaves your place you wanna be somebody else

 

Give yourself some time,

give yourself some patience,

 

and someday you will find that it was worth the wait when you can leave your fears behind,

 

give yourself some time

 

Before you find somebody else, you gotta find yourself,

before you find a place to hide, you gotta make up your mind,

this stone has rolled away, the cave was not a place to stay,

each time she leaves your place you wanna be somebody else

 

LET LOVE GO

 

Yesterday somebody told me, that she´s in love but she´ll always hold me off,

yesterday somebody told me she holds me off cause she never wants to love,

who´s allowed to set hearts on fire, should be allowed to unseat deciders,

take control of these broken liars, they will tell you there´s love inside of us

 

I drink all night and I sleep all day,

I drink all night since you´re away,

it feels allright that you´re not sorry,

heavy losses, end of story,

let love go

 

let love go somewhere you´ll never follow

Yesterday somebody told me, that she´s in love but she´ll always hold me off,

yesterday somebody told me she holds me off cause she never wants to cope

 

 

HYPNOTIZED

 

Franz Mesmer was no fraud (never, never),

this fluid never will run out (never, never),

your irises resemble outer space,

I can´t help but getting lost without a trace

 

I am hypnotized by your eyes,

I am hypnotized,

I am out of time when you smile,

I am hypnotized

 

I focused on your rings, (mesmerize),

click your fingers, let it swing (Mesmer, Mesmer),

your irises resemble outer space,

your promises I tenderly embrace

 

focus on me or I go solo,

now focus on me ´cause I bet you don´t know,

that I´m in between and always will be,

until you release me then I am

 

MY LOVERS

 

In pick-pocket style you´re deceiving,

it´s you, I know you gonna come through,

with kisses and lies you´re leaving soon,

I know you gonna come through,

I fell in love with the common people, you fell in love with no common ground,

you fell in love with the life unequal, I´m waiting by your side,

 

My lovers they come and go,

they got me feeling so low,

why did you have to thieve,

just bring back my love to me,

to you and your kleptic hands:

bring back my love again,

 

you´re taking away, not retrieving, it´s you,

I know you gonna come through,

I´m spending my days, by just being your fool,

I know you gonna come through,

I fell in love with the common people, you fell in love with no common ground,

you fell in love with the life unequal, I´m waiting by your side,

 

I ain´t no disbeliever but you ain´t no promise keeper, love,

we are in this together alone,

 

AMSTERDAM

 

While I was waking up in Amsterdam, I thought about the things I could have done,

I thought about words I could have said and about the things I did instead,

and every night I can´t sleep,

I still feel you, I see you, I breathe you beside me

 

I bought some sleeping pills to get you out of my head,

but even in my dreams it´s like a hunt, you´re chasing me down,

I bought some medicine to get you out of my head,

but even in my haze, it´s like a chase and I can´t get away

 

While I was waking up in Israel, I thought about the things you could have felt,

if I hadn´t let you go, I´m chasing heights now I´m feeling low

 

 

 

THINKING OF YOU

Well it was always true, I could keep up with you,

but it was always me, the one with special needs,

and it was always strange, when people like us changed

 

All my friends told me to wait for

somebody that I can relate to,

but all the time,

I was just thinking of you

all my friends told me to keep calm,

cause the sun comes after the storm,

but all the time I was just thinking of you

 

and it is always hard, when lovers like us part,

but it was always you, the one with special moods

 

for my life I will remember,

how we changed and we surrendered,

and all my life I will be thinking of you

 

DEJA VU

I´m focused on the limelight parade,

as it´s marching down your face,

and I know

tomorrow at this time you´ll walk away,

you say you need me,

you say you don´t believe me,

but I know

tomorrow at this time you´ll walk away

I see you

 

in something like a déjà-vu

I´m sure I´ve seen you before

 

I think, I wonder, I contemplate,

but how do I get the story straight,

I know I´m right,

tomorrow at this time you´re out of sight,

we argue till we meet

a self-fulfilling prophecy

and then you leave

excactly at the time that I have seen,

 

I´ve seen this, I´ve known this, I´ve felt this before,

I don´t know which side I can turn to,

cause all I see is you

 

THE PARACHUTE

These small hands, if they slipped off and you could fall,

these gorgeous eyes, if they saw that someone breaks your heart,

those weary feet, they found no way for you to go,

it´s alright,

 

if in your mind you find no solutions at all,

if in your chest there is no rest and no security,

if your muscles are exhausted and feel sore,

it´s alright

 

My love, if you fall I will be the parachute,

my love, after it all, I will be the parachute,

my love, if you fall I will be the parachute for you

 

Take these wings I know someday you´ll fly yourself,

maybe it´s hard for me to know you need no help,

but if so you know where you´ll find me very well,

it´s allright

 

INVISIBLE

I could write a book about you, I could make a million in one year,

still I would not mean much to you, I do care but you don´t, do you?

I could name an asteroid after you, I could learn a language just to be near,

still I would not mean much to you, I do care but you don´t, do you?

I

If I  withdrew, if I cut you dead,

still I would not mean much to you, I do care but you don´t, do you?

To you I am invisible

whatever I do

 

You could wind up broke and lonely, you could be in trouble or dispair,

still you would not care much for me, but giving up seems overhasty,

if I started to be great-hearted I know

still you would not care much for me, but giving up is not my way to you,

 

You look right through me and I don´t know if you ever get to me or why i´m holding on

 

DON'T LOVE ME FOREVER

 

In this lightbox, you have thrown me not long ago,

I can feel it, you can´t hold me the way I want to,

 

don´t love me forever, just love me for now

 

when I grow up, you will solve it, air in lungs,

I won´t need it, I will do it on my own then
