Tracklist

Bones of Love

length: 3:03

She’s sipping a cappuccino
Like a cat sipping out of a bowl
He’s black espresso
To start his heart from going cold

He’s thinking ‘cognac’
But afraid his hands might shake
She’s checking her make-up
Her smile’s giving nothing away

You better kill me before I kill you
You look good in black
Who’ll pay the bill and keep on walking
Will get a hole in their back

Two faded tourists
Their visas have long expired
Two forgotten journalists
Whose headlines have retired

What’s that in his pocket?
They aint Chinese banknotes
What’s that in her handbag?
That’s no bar of gold

You better kill me before I kill you
You look good in black
Who’ll pay the bill and keep on walking
Will get a hole in their back

Two suntanned lovers
Love didn’t die, it just went dry
Fading into the sunset
Those bones of love passing by

You better kill me before I kill you
You look good in black
Who’ll pay the bill and keep on walking
Will get a hole in their back

You better kill me before I kill you
You look good in black
Who’ll pay the bill and keep on walking
Will get a hole in their back

Beggar’s Song

length: 5:15
You sit in your palace
I'm out on the street
You drink the champagne of your sweet life
I've got nothing to eat
But I've got more fingers
Than I've got friends

I wanna be the sunlight
That illuminates your skin
Be the one you're waiting for
The one that you let in
But whenever I see you
It always seems to rain

Don't ever give up
Just look up
There's an angel on the way

Don't ever give up
Just look up
There's an angel on the way

I wanna hold you, touch you
Melt inside your mouth
Dive deep inside you
And never come on out
The days are getting shorter
And at nights I burn up inside

Don't ever give up
Just look up
There's an angel on the way

Don't ever give up
Just look up
There's an angel on the way

I'm standing on a bridge, in the fog
Just waiting for you
I know you'll never come
But wait is what I'll do
And see the sunrise
Knowing you're around

Don't ever give up
Just look up
There's an angel on the way

Don't ever give up
Just look up
There's an angel on the way

Don't ever give up
Just look up
There's an angel on the way

Don't ever give up
Just look up
There's an angel on the way

Heaven Knows Why

length: 3:34
When you're down , my baby
I'm falling down with you
Maybe it looks like I don't care
But that's not true
And when your heart is bleeding
I know it's my fault
And I take all the blame on me
Though it doesn't show

There is a killer in me
Hidden beneath my smile
She makes me wanna hurt you, baby
She makes me tell you lies
Heaven knows why
I don't know why...

We're not so long together
But we travelled so far
I know I haven't been there for you
More then once or twice
And when I see you crying
It's not that I don't care
I always wait with saying "sorry"
Till it gets too late

There is a child in me
Hidden behind my eyes
Hiding in his loneliness
No matter how hard I try
Heaven knows why
I don't know why...

When you're down , my baby
I'm falling down with you
You say it looks like I don't care
But that's not true
Maybe my love isn't golden
But surely is real
And I could die today, right now
For what I feel

There's always you in me
Hidden deep in my heart
You make me wanna sing for you
For you I wrote these lines
Heaven knows why
I don't know why...
Heaven knows why
I don't know why...

Then & Now

length: 3:50
I was crazy about the way you dressed, undressed
All that wild sex
And the way you got dressed
That was then and this is now
You were the pilot in my stormy skies
I fell in love
With your mischievous eyes
That was then and this is now

You froze me into Yesterday
You’re the beautiful murderess who got away
We couldn’t tango but we sure could kiss
That was then and this is now

After Summer came Winter
It all went cold and black
The sun is shining somewhere else and never coming back
That was then and this is now

There was the magic of the moment
The wisdom of a sigh
You held me so fiercely through those endless nights
That was then and this is now

Rose

length: 2:48
I put a rose
Upon your pillow
Where you lay your hair
I felt kind of clumsy and artificial
Just putting it right there

There's a rose
Upon my pillow
An open wound painfully sharp
It's the perfect sign
You never know how long it's going to last

Tell me, Will you come back?
Oh, Dearest, I must go away
Every time we hold each other
This could be our final day

There's a rose
Upon our pillow
Staring us in the face
Telling us to do something
Before it gets too late

I stare
At my pillow
Where we lay side by side
Tightly wrapped together
Safe from the outside

In the shadows
Of early morning
When the village is sound asleep
In the silence
Before the birds sing
I can hear her gently weep

Everything Flows

length: 5:01
Last time when I was standing here
It was Summer 1991
I had flowers in my long blond hair
And two sparks dancing in my eyes
I was crazy about this gorgeous boy
He looked like James Dean on his motorbike
We thought that love was just holding hands
And watching the Moon at night

Then the Autumn came
And all the colours changed
What I'd seen in him
I couldn't see again

'Cause everything flows
and nothing stands still
everything flows
and always will...
Last time I was walking down this street
I felt the burning rage against this world
I had stones in my pockets, I was ready to fight
In the name of broken souls
I didn't eat meat, I fed homeless cats
I was deeply in touch with The Holy Ghost
I believed everything depended on me
When I sang my protest songs

The day I realized
I couldn't save the Earth
I went to the nearest bar
And had a big fat steak

Today I just smile when I look at my past
By now I've learnt to take life as it comes
I have no expectations, I dream carefully
Under this starless city skies
I've lost my illusions along the way
And now I'm far too smart to trust my eyes
'Cause what I see might not be real
I know my instincts can lie

I live from day to day
Grateful for what I've go
Happily reconciled
to the saddest fact

Ref...
Oh! Time, Time, Time
You're the greatest thief
How come you always get away with things?
People blame people
For each change and every lose
When it's all your fault!

Ref...

Learning (How to Fall)

length: 4:43
In your world of admirers, lovers, hangers - on,
Bathroom mirrors, ghosts and fleeting friends
Your SOSs, your emotional messes
And your dramas without end

You're victories, wardrobe full of clothes you never wear
A vase of daffodils in your window
It's here I met the graveyard of my dreams
The ones I didn't want to know

We're learning, learning how to fall
We're learning, learning how to fall

Buried in the darkness, sitting naked in your chair
You're a statue, indifferent to my stare
I came of begging at your bed,
After a while, I forgot I was there

So I lost my body, lost Time but not my mind
Just like life after a death
Washed away in a raging river
And the coldness took away my breath

We're learning, learning how to fall X 4

Down a corridor of endless doors in a building of endless floors
We run, hand in hand
Searching for stupid things said in a clever way
Afraid we might not understand

We've forgotten the beating heart, breathing in and breathing out
How to see, touch and feel
We never want to come back down
when we`ve got to the top of the hill

Cry

length: 4:35
Sometimes I almost feel You
Right beside me
Sometimes I almost sense
Your warming touch
No matter where I go
I look around me
Hoping to be blessed
With Your smile

And then I take
Someone else's face for Yours
And then I give
My trembling heart away
And when I realise
It wasn't You, for sure
I run and cry for my mistakes...

Sometimes I'm so impatient
I paint my lips red
To help You recognize me
In the crowd
If I knew your name
It would be easier
But I don't even know
The colour of Your eyes...

So I take
Someone else's eyes for Yours
And then I let myself
Drown in them
And when I realize
It didn't help at all
I run and cry for my mistakes...

So, come and find me, baby
'cause I am almost 30
and I don't have no more time to waste
come and hold me , honey
'cause life's no longer funny
when I wake up all alone in empty bed
I don't wanna take
Nobody's arms for yours
Don't wanna let myself
Get lost in them
Don't wanna go, no more
For second best
And then run and cry for my mistakes....

Way Back to Love

length: 4:32
Trying to find your way back to love
To find that road you were walking on
You're scared of who you are,
Scared of who you might be,
Scared of your karma pointing at me

If you should fall
I'll hold you, love you

Sometimes we're frozen deep within our skins
Love's hard to lock out, easy to let in
And we're tired of ceilings
Crashing down again
I`m sinking feeling
That it all comes down to pain

We make ourselves prisoners of our minds
And we confine ourselves in Time
Standing hand in hand
We`re facing this world alone
We're going to make this love our own

Cruel Magic

length: 3:44
Let's play the guitar
Let's tap our feet
Let's sing of love
To make us all weep

Let's fill up our hearts
And empty our minds
Give ourselves to the music
And dance outside Time

Let's sway our bodies
Like the wind bends the trees
Let's sing this melody
To cure our disease

Ah, sweet magic
Ah, this sweet, cruel magic

Let's fly through perfumed dreams
On a tapestry of lovers' words
From the first burning kiss
To the loss and the hurt

Here, the ladies wear their dresses tight
The men, their peacock suits
The moon comes out every night
In a sky of midnight blue

We, who have loved
We, who have been loved
Ah, this sweet, cruel magic
We did it all for Love

Nobody Else

length: 5:02
They say everything has already happened
The world just repeats itself
There's nothing new for us to discover
Nothing wise left to say

I know I can't teach you a thing
You haven't learnt before
Whatever I'd like to tell you now
You already know...

But I'll try
Just one time
And I'll say:

Look at the Sun - it's so bright!
And it shines just for you
There's nobody else
What you believe is your choice
It's your life, so come on!
Don't waste it away
Just give yourself another chance...

They say everything what's already happened
Will happen again and again
It doesn't matter if someone's missing
There's no one that can't be replaced

So each morning you look for a reason
Just to open your eyes
But if you don't find one deep in you
You'll never find it outside

So, here I try
One more time
And I say:

Look at the Sun - it's so bright! ...etc.

There are so many roads you can take
There are still many things you can change
Just give yourself another chance
Just give yourself another chance and

Look at the Sun - it's so bright
And it shines just for you
There's nobody else
What you believe is your choice
You can do what you want
Whatever they say... Just give yourself another chance...

Knock, Knock

length: 4:49
After the initial shock
Of not having what you've got
And your body just drops away
Nothing has really changed
That's frightening and its strange
And no one can hear what you`ve got to say

And everything just lingers on
Like an echo of your favourite song
It was so simple after all
But now you're on the other side of the door

Knock-knock, let me in
It's cold outside in this cosmic wind
Knock-knock, let me in
Just for tonight

Will you drive an outrageous Cadillac
Wear cowboy boots and a funny hat
And speed through the lights downtown?
Is there an eternal Fate?
Will you see your eternal lover's face,
As you crash into the Milky Way?

And everything just lingers on
Like an echo of your favourite song
It was so simple after all
But now you're on the other side of the door

Knock-knock, let me in
It's cold outside in this cosmic wind
Knock-knock, let me in
Just for tonight

Been to heaven, been to hell
Lost my heart in cheap hotels
I`ve been doing this for so many years
Now it doesn't matter what I wear,
How I look, what I own, if I care...
But where is thiat guiding light?

Strange Bird

length: 4:31
Yesterday I saw the ghost
Of my shaded past
He was standing by my window
Looking kind of lost
He said : "I've travelled across the oceans
Of time and s___e
Just to say I love you
I still can't forget..."

I didn't even stop to listen
I had my things to do
So I just kept on walking
Staring at my shoes
I guess I didn't have the courage
To look him in the face
Then I heard his voice
Crying at my back
And he said: You're a strange bird

You sang so sweet then you flew away
You're a weird flame
You made me warm till I got burnt
Oh! you'll pay for this one day....

When I got home it was late at night
Nothing on TV
So I just dived into the silence
With a cup of tea
Somehow I couldn't rest my mind
When I was in bed
I still heard these words
Rattling in my head...

I woke up early in the morning
Blinded by the Sun
I never felt so empty and so lonely
In my life
I've left so many ghosts behind me
Trying to save myself
Now I'm all alone
And that's the price I pay...

I'm a strange bird
I sing so sweet then I fly away
I'm a weird flame
I'll make you warm
Till you get burnt

I just look for Love
Does it make me bad?
We all look for Love
But it's not always there....

Sweet Jesus

length: 3:44
You kneel by the graveside
with songs for lost souls
I heard you were digging
a deep, black hole

while in contemplation
inside, you shivered and groaned
your knees turned to water
your face was the colour of bones

Jesus Loves - Jesus Saves
But where is your Sweet Jesus today?
Jesus Loves - Jesus Saves
But where is your Sweet Jesus today?

Stretched out on your altar
as cold as church stone
the crimson robe of your passion
worn out and looking old

forgotten cups of tea and orange skins
eaten-words and screwed up days
you hide in your bed
waiting to be saved

Jesus Loves - etc
On this long road, on this long road

amazed that Grace didn't touch you
burn your heart, inflame your soul
no blue light, no angels
no key to that magic door

ah, you were such a crazy c___
you overdosed on your desire
have you come to haunt me
and tell me I'm a liar
