Track Name: Time
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
Track Name: Nostalgia
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
Track Name: 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
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
Track Name: Underneath Stars Without A Sky
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
Track Name: First Song
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
Track Name: Shine
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
Track Name: And Never Return
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
Track Name: Shores Of Yesterday
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
Track Name: Up The Ass Of A Swan
UP THE AS OF A SWAN

Written by Todd Dillingham
Track Name: In June, As I Killed Time
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
Track Name: A Dream Within A Dream
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
Track Name: I Woke From A Sleep That Lasted All My Life
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
