TIME lyrics by R. N. Taylor and Wolfgang Weiss and now our time comes and now our time comes there will come a time we said but time only goes the fading of the rainbow the closing of a rose we’ll make the time we vowed but times already made impatient as the twilight elusive as the shade and now our time comes and now our time comes we’ll take the time we both agreed but time is only lived the clock unwinds and autumn leaves run riot in the wind and time just slips away they say like golden grains of sand and the days and nights we held so tight escape from out our hands and now our time comes and now our time comes and now our time comes and now our time comes and now it has gone and now it has gone

Nostalgia 03:19
NOSTALGIA I see old spirits rise, in brown eyes a violet smile, a lack of control we failed to take the chance long ago, for a day like this, I would have given all my lifes future bliss in the past I longed for futile days like this I see old spirits rise, in your eyes a violet smile, a lack of control now we know what we have lost short ago, for a day like this, I would have given all my lifes future bliss I still long for fertile days like this
3.
DESTROY YOUR LIFE and do you look at the stars and dream of your past it was so long ago oh did you ever know destroy your life I’d like to think that you destroyed your life I am where I always was, buried inside a tomb of dreams and here we are on the roof of our life, preparing to fly without wings all the years have passed in vain and the road gets shorter everyday now I was waiting for something to happen but then you just flew away and do you look at the stars and dream of your past it was so long ago oh did you ever know destroy your life destroy your life destroy your life and do you look at the stars and dream of your past it was so long ago oh did you ever know destroy your life destroy your life I’d like to think that you destroyed your life beneath your old house I saw horses, running free with your mourning to foreign shores on ships of gold, that’s where we should be going but there are things in me that time can never heal and all the voices in my head: “summer is just a dream” and do you look at the stars and dream of your past where did you go and did you ever know destroy your life destroy your life destroy your life and do you look at the stars and dream of your past where did you go and did you ever know destroy your life destroy your life I’d like to think that you destroyed your life
4.
UNDERNEATH STARS WITHOUT A SKY look, the birds are falling down just like rain they reach the ground and all the fools keep bleating oh look, the White Ship, over there come here, but dog damned days are near I think someone tears my heart apart I revisit a place I found with you with the memory all the pain comes, too now the stars have no sky imperfection and you lie the cosmic chaos of life and of lights oh I think I loved you at first sight now all fell down and fell dead and left me here with nothing
5.
First Song 03:35
FIRST SONG wait, here we stand starry-eyed at the crossroads I do not pretend here we stand once again I’m just passing by – come crashing into your life uncertainty not enough time let’s hesitate forever as I stumble I await my fall I’m just passing by – here crawling into your life let loose your dolphins to tear me apart let loose your cats to feast on my heart let loose your friends to defile my name let loose a love to engulf me with pain I’m just passing by and here is your first song and the light in your eyes, glimmer or pity let loose your dolphins to tear me apart let loose your cats to feast on my heart let loose your friends to defile my name let loose a love to engulf me with pain I’m just passing by, sharing your fear of getting old and now I remember that your hair was golden
6.
Shine 02:08
SHINE there could be a future, I see it bright, I don´t see it clear there is a place, I´m part of it with you there is joy and all the pleasure and there is also something I longed for I´d give it all up, I´d throw it all away but all that´s left is me here in despair hear the serenade this serenade of my soul my tearful words for you to shine maybe you are present right now and maybe I point at you right now and if you are not I wish it would be that you would listen to my wail I want to wave farewell to my lament forget all my pain, my waking hours I´ll wake you in the morning in a time when luck is mine I await a time for me to shine
7.
AND NEVER RETURN a different world waits for me a hideaway from all that’s wrong across the waves to enchanted isles far away and there we’ll stay we all live troubled lives but I’d rather stay here in the dark you like the west but I go north there is more than one true love I’m just passing by and people change hearing you say “people change” and then you blackened all the stars and then you never looked back and then you sent the gods away and then they never came back and then I saw you in my dreams and then you never came back I am still the same but people change hang on, it’s gone and people change
8.
SHORES OF YESTERDAY here I watch the midnights go and all this searching has to stop and how long this road appears and how uncertain in the night I’ve got so far to go and oh so little time though I may regret tomorrow I’d say yesterday was mine so let us sing of the tortured heart so let us revisit places past so let us dream of chances lost so let us sail on ships of gold here the years rush like blood and what we love we hurt the most adrift on that special day I glanced through to another world but considering this and reflecting that, promises broken and nothing else left what is real is better than what was dreamt, but still I can dream we will never know so let us sing of the tortured heart so let us revisit places past so let us dream of chances lost so let us sail on ships of gold to the shores of yesterday

UP THE AS OF A SWAN Written by Todd Dillingham
10.
IN JUNE, AS I KILLED TIME later as we say goodbye I realize, all is well for her it´s 3 a.m. and I don´t know that my reason to live is soon to come come with me, my horizon widened dawn comes fast and the birds sing loud my eyes are coloured with the red that´s on the sky and the clouds I see it all through a romantic haze and wait to be cut again by the not so fair the barbed and poisoned dart of Cupid tell me what friends are for I hate all my sadness songs my dreams are difficult and they depend on and collapse with yours later as we say goodbye I realize, all is well for her it´s "I don´t know" and I don´t care but a reason to live is yet alive come with me to complete my life night comes fast and the air is warm my eyes are filled with the kissing, glancing, loving, bleeding, singing... may your pains be softened may your throes be driven away may your pains be softened there are things that wash me away
11.
A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM if it’s good to live then it’s better to be asleep dreaming has it all gone or will I fall awake will I never return to be the same again droplets of memory are all that remain strange faces promising new life does the reward justify the loss all beauty burned burned like bridges I once crossed 7 years ago often more has it all gone or will I fall awake will I never return to be young again since it does not matter when why could I not die then if it’s good to live then it’s better to be asleep dreaming if it’s good to live then it’s better to be asleep dreaming I came to leave I start to bleed a dream within a dream another wave breaks on a foreign shore a dream within a dream all the pain that comes down on me a dream within a dream the second side of My Boy a dream within a dream nothing nothing nothing nothing a dream within a dream a hideaway unseen a dream within a dream why could I not die then why could I not die then
12.
I WOKE FROM A SLEEP THAT LASTED ALL MY LIFE everything I’d change a whole life to rearrange only one dream was good only once I understood down the hill from where I live there’s a road that I never take have I gone out or did you come in I can’t remember now that I’m awake I never speak about what treasure I have found I outlived my past and silence will make it last down the hill from where I live there’s a road that I never take have I gone out or did you come in I can’t remember now that I’m awake you pulled me away and what more can I say if it was meant to be it’s now that I am free down the hill from where I live there’s a road that I never take have I gone out or did you come in I can’t remember now that I’m awake
