why did you say yes, when you felt like saying no? why did you stay, when you felt the urge to go? why did you shut up? to have the peace restored? you think you are too old when you look in the mirror you pick the classic black when your mind screams bright red you blush when a man tries to be nice to you. I try to define reality and we all find the patience in short supply when you have an idea you are holding it back. your point of view is highly influenced by your mother, your brother. I do believe in you. I try to define reality and we all find the patience in short supply when you thought you were shouting all we heard was a whisper. and you pretended to listen but you didn't really care. and you wanted to stay firm but in the end, you gave in. I try to define reality and we all find the patience in short supply

Dear Friend 02:53
I ́d like to blame you for everything I can not get hold of you what kind of friend you are, when you are never near when I need you so do I ask for too much when I want to talk to you? are you frightened to lose your hold? I am. do I have to live with memories from the past while we are still young? you are where I am still, you are not near and I did not sleep last night they keep watching you what you do when you are meeting me I ́d like to be stronger but I am not allowed to show you my love, do I ask for too much when I want to touch you? are you frightened to fall in love? I am. a love affair with you is what I want while we are still young

things are not getting better since we are apart I wish you would call me and tell me where you are Refrain: I fear to hear your sweet, your softly spoken words they are dripping into my mouth like honey I swallow them down and over the tickle in my throat I know it won ́t work out between you and me there ́s a crack in my head where I see happy children playing I know it ́s not real so I could go crazy for a while now there ́s a crack in my heart if I live in silence if I live in fear you are not gonna find me you won ́t be near Refrain if you would come to see me it would ease my pain I wish you could love me despite the things I have done Refrain

Read My Lips 03:00
a little bit of touching the line along the neck a tight grip around the waist a smooth and gentle swing a pair of hands and lustful eyes exploring unknown land you stupid bitch what ́s wrong with you don ́t put on such a show read my lips I said no a little bit of rubbing a little bit of mmmh.. a hand between legs down run the sweat pearls smile at me you gorgeous toy I love you so much right now sit down on my lap and I like the way you smell read my lips I said no

don ́t expect me to worship or love you so true don ́t expect me to know what to do let ́s take the first step and spend the night together at the breakfast table, you can tell me again what you told me last night in your gin stricken voice words like bricks to build a wall words like one big waterfall some words are ripe ripe like a grape unspoken words pumping blood in my head words spoken in fever words spoken in love most words I have spoken when I was drunk I think of what you have told me last night you said: I love you, I love you so true with gestures so tender, they were making me blue ́cause you told me those words in your gin stricken voice words like bricks to build a wall words like one big waterfall some words are ripe ripe like a grape unspoken words pumping blood in my head words spoken in fever words spoken in love most words I have spoken when I was drunk I carry a letter a letter from you I could spit on the paper I ́d rather spit on you but you are not here and you never will be so I might as well carry on doing what a long time ago I have learned to speak words like bricks to build a wall words like one big waterfall some words are ripe ripe like a grape unspoken words pumping blood in my head words spoken in fever words spoken in love most words I have spoken when I was drunk

Not The End 04:32
you still mean a lot to me you are always on my mind I´ve missed my chance to say goodbye the day I had to stand next to your grave I refused to accept what had happened what a nightmare I´ve come to a conclusion I can´t go on like this and you are the first one to know the grave can´t be the end the grief must not remain sadness has to go poor lost little soul I know I have to be strong I´m all on my own but I won´t give in you´d have done the same now I´d like to say goodbye I even try it with a smile you know it took me some time the burden of life weights me down to the ground

I watch the perfect actress how she fools the audience I know I should not be offended, that you feel the urge to move on you have got days where you don´t know what to say or where to go, so unbearable in your head, in your chest and in your soul, hope tomorrow changes all, and your heartbeat will be stronger I can feel the tension when I enter the room too many expectations and never quite enough room for the days where I don´t know what to say or where to go, so unbearable in my head, in my chest and in my soul, hope tomorrow changes all and my heartbeat will be stronger who do you think you are, girl, that you say you will never forgive. you are truly not so perfect and you know, girl, you are fooling yourself. you have got days where you don´t know what to say or where to go, so unbearable in your head, in your chest and in your soul, hope tomorrow changes all, and your heartbeat will be stronger

I do the shopping and I wash the car, dinner has to be ready and my temper has to be steady. I hang up the washing, take the rubbish out, read the story at bedtime for the children out loud. Don´t get me wrong, I am not complaining, I have got my little pleasures! I sit down with a coffee in the afternoon, grab a magazine in the living room, it is the famous and rich I can´t wait to see. The jet-set has taken a seat next to me. Oh, she looks lovely in that dress. Oops, I can see her naked breast. If she is taking a few days off, couldn´t I replace her on the catwalk? My mother comes by and has a chat with me, she tells me how she suffers from her bad, bad knee. I know my duties when my husband comes from work. He needs some attention and he wants some sex. Don´t get me wrong, I am not complaining, I have got my little pleasures! I sit down with a coffee in the afternoon, grab a magazine in the living room, it is the famous and rich I can´t wait to see. The jet-set has taken a seat next to me. Oh, she looks lovely in that dress. Oops, I can see her naked breast. If she is taking a few days off, couldn´t I replace her on the catwalk?

Misery 03:05
Misery you have come my way Misery you have come Misery I love you but you don´t love me the way I am I know, I must not be so sad But I am And all I do is cry Winter will be mine Winter will be mine Winter will be mine Misery you have come my way Misery you have come Misery I told you that I love you And you did not Now the world seems so dark and grey And I know I have to walk away From every place I know From every place I have been From every place that reminds me of you

Haven´t you noticed that I try to please you so? Too early to go to bed, on one of our evenings on the beach. We sat down for a beer, drinking and talking for a while. I moved my chair towards the sea and sat there in silence. I thought about Neruda`s poems and felt a little jealous, because of the passion and depth of feelings, he has gone through. And while thinking about all that, I saw something most beautiful. When the moonbeam gets caught in the wave, I could not be much happier. Real diamonds are floating on the surface and all my sorrows gently drown in the sea. Haven´t you noticed that I am so in love with you? You are covered in dirt and dump of your life. Your fists are holding on tight to the dark side of life. Life sometimes is a wild and rough storm. Let me be your shelter where you can hide. Together we wait for the sun to rise again, while we can not say goodbye to the stars. When the moonbeam gets caught in the wave, I could not be much happier. Real diamonds are floating on the surface and all my sorrows gently drown in the sea.

jealousy is a hungry fox desperate to be heard and to be seen my body aches with jealousy why do you rise so early from our bed of friendship? can´t explain it from a logical point of view how pathetic life can be especially after you pissed me off so much a tender kiss for those you love a kick in the ass for those you don´t like you want to be independent and free happy, fragile and strong like me how pathetic life can be especially after you pissed me off so much you constantly remind me of what I want to be you are everybody`s darling and treated with respect why pick up a fight I can only lose? my jealousy is a hungry fox

This Time 04:04
This time I want to do it right The way I feel it from inside From this very instant on I know exactly if it´s right or wrong If I could sleep one hundred years I´d place the poison on my lips I would wait for you to come And you will get your fatal kiss Knowing you You can´t resist Afterwards, you´ll be so sore You´ll be trapped inside yourself and that´s the reason why you cry wholeheartedly You´ll be blinded by the light and that´s the reason why you try to escape You´ll devote yourself again to depression and the pain oh what a shame

Embrace Me 04:12
Today, I have got no one by my side I understand, but it is killing me inside Tomorrow, I won´t be alive The sunrise will hide from my eyes It is good to hear words of sympathy Embrace me Embrace me I need to feel you that close Embrace me Embrace me Words are just not enough Embrace me Embrace me Yesterday, I was longing for some tenderness and a little bit of love I was fearless and brainless Tomorrow, I won´t be alive The sunrise will hide from my eyes. May I have a last wish? Embrace me Embrace me I need to feel you that close Embrace me Embrace me Words are just not enough Embrace me Embrace me

Back Home 04:34
she should pick up her child but she misses her train she likes to discuss never cares about time she walks back home alone all by herself taking each step with carelessness all the promises you made you did not bother to keep walking home alone all by herself she is thinking of the child the baby inside with a body like a stone a mind like a rock a soul like a feather she is in danger to fall all the promises you made you did not bother to keep hopeless useless no way out no-one will ever get to know the truth she holds her head up high while she´s walking in the rain thinking of the child that grows in her womb she´s trying not to panic all the promises you made you did not bother to keep she walks back home alone all by herself no-one will ever get to know the truth from her or from her father being the father
