Under The Sun Thin ice is breaking – every bird has its song The dormant seeds are coming up to sprout and shout. The bumblebees aim at the dots in the green Asparagus spears through my heart A chilly breeze released the longing for May Bittersweet sadness that soaks in when it rains Butterfl ies so high in an open sky Found their place under the sun Under the sun Crawling past the blooming almonds Look into glaring little diamonds Collect small bones and a black seed Little time to string these few beads One swallow doesn’t make a summer But I was born a dreamer Found my place under the sun Under the sun Wild saffron grows in my garden by the pearly gates Parsley blooming in the pourring rain

Cross My Heart I’m guarding a secret I’m keeping it well It lies under the forget-me-nots in my little garden Every spring they bloom like the bluest sky And making my heart ake a while So I pluck the fl owers, put them in a vase and lament about the day I cross my heart and hope to die I swear by the moon, the sun and the sky I will never tell, I will never tell, I will never tell tell I’m guarding a treasure and when the raindrops falling on me nonstop, I think of digging it out and scream „everybody help yourselves“ But after the rain comes the sun, making all the birds sing their songs to me „Be a warrior, have no barriers, no worries in mind“ So I cross my heart and hope to die I swear by the moon, the sun and my life I will never tell, I will never tell, I will never tell tell I fell off a rainbow into the darkest sea But looking back I’ve had it all and always felt so free, like having wings to fl y high, shiny dragonfl y heading far away

Lo-o-ove 03:59
Lo-o-ove I’d feed a lion for you Get a silly tatoo Take a swim in an ocean with 1000 sharks Create a shower of sparks, Laugh at all your remarks Come and look at me I’d do anything for lo-o-o-ove.. Parachute out of a plane Drink the cheapest champage Rob a bank not at all disguised I’ll bake hundreds of pies Make stunts before your eyes Come on notice me I’d do anything for lo-o-o-ove Oh you got me spinning Oh you got me loving Oh you got me on a rollercoaster up and down Oh you got me speechless Oh you got me hoping Oh you got me on a rollercoaster up and down Gonna be a little posh Sipping on a fruit crush Write a critical song about the neighbourhood Search the jungle for food Going hiking as nude Hope to catch your eye I’d do anything for lo-o-o-ve...

Hopes For Infi nity We were young, we got hopes so high and dreams as swift as gas We had time, yet were racing through those moments of our lifes Wide open spaces, we were diving in Weightless falling into your arms All our wishes written down – hand in hand - watching falling stars It was our summer so light and warm – it was good - oh it felt so free We had hopes for infi nity – for fi refl ies in the sky We had hopes that it would stay like this forever forever going on We hoped for infi nity of all things surrounding us Sunset fi res - night bird songs – the sweet smell of warm skin The world won’t stop turning for you nor me This world won’t stop turning – it never will We were so free (swaying) we were so free (fl oating) we were so free (loving) We were so free (dreaming) we were so free (swinging) we were so free (gliding) we were so free (falling) we were so free (forever) We had hopes for infi nity but starlight brought us home

Kings Of Tomorrow Bow down to me I’ve been hiding the biggest surprise The masterplan today only succeds in disguise The cream is overfl oating it’s time to fl utter And whipping causes air cells to collapse into butter I’ll aim for light hearts with a chocolate arrow Carry their remains up a hill in a barrow On their graves there will bloom wild cherry But one of them kings I will marry I’m setting the table for the kings of tomorrow I want their lonely hearts I aim with my arrow I’m setting the table for the kings of tomorrow Whipped cream, jet stream I aim with my arrow It’s gonna be a coronation feast By leaving only one I guess I’m the beast I heard that Cupid will bring stolen honey Would never give up my plans for love or money I’m setting the table for the kings of tomorrow I want their lonely hearts I aim with my arrow I’m setting the table for the kings of tomorrow Whipped cream, jet stream I aim with my arrow

This World Is Not My Home This is a quiet night - the city lights up one last time I open parachutes – to lift me up and catch my fall I’d give it all away to know where you are, And i drive, wherever my heart will lead me Until I’m home This world is not my home Just looking out the window My train is racing through this no man’s land You fi lled my senses You gave me peace You made me say Wherever you are is my home This place is not my home I look out and feel nothing I’m just passing through this no man’s land I counted millions of stars – they vanish as the sun comes up Fly, dandelion, fl y – to lift me up and get carried away I wished – you were here – standing besides me and make this place home and i drive, wherever my heart will lead Until I’m home

The Mountain 08:17
The Mountain Oh you’re so mighty and angry and pulsing and trembling and so full of heat oh you’re so frightning yet tempting and pulling me in oh so foolishly I feel a storm is coming Bury my fears - I always had you in my heart Bury the past - I always had you in my dreams Carry me far into the sea – darken the sun, glow in the dark I feel a storm, trembling earth is taking my breath, taking me in I’m all yours now Smoke blinds the sun Arms wide open Jumping in Catch my falling Forever yours Heavy blankets Darkening the sun Oh so quiet, oh so quiet Lovely mountain Carry me far Into the ocean Horizons call

Waiting For Landfall The sea was calm – every day last year And the sky was blue – trying to please my mind But time went by while I was fl oating free To fi nd a place where I can be Everyplace that I’ve seen seemed so clear But coming close made it look dull and pale I’m fl oating free till I can land somewhere The air’s so calm – where will I be? I’m waiting for landfall I’m fl oating free through the darkest night The waves will wash me overboard Unexplored little territory An island in the open sea I always knew, I’m gonna be free somewhere My little red house by the shore Floating free till I could land somewhere To fi nd a place where I can be I’ve made landfall
