Solid Water 04:21
You slide across the solid water And it's crackin you up to see her shine You slide across the solid water But she still feels perfectly fine And when the lights are out Can you see her, can you see her? And when the door is closed Can you hear her, hear her voice? You should've known her better I thought you knew her well Well, she has pushed you over Grew stronger as you fell You slide across the solid water And it's crackin you up to see her shine You slide across the solid water But she still feels perfectly fine And when you touch yourself Can you feel her, can you feel her? And when you're missing out Can you feel her? no you can't... You should've known her better I thought you knew her well Well, she has pushed you over Grew stronger as you fell

Stone-cold is the heart you hold and you talk like a queer Said you're blooming virtually, well, you don't look that good to me Once more you're looking for escape from the fear But it's stuck on your back: the anxiety attack I know the secret you are keeping from me We feel the same because we want to be free So let us find out that we haven't changed Let us find out that we haven't changed Let us find out that we haven't changed Let us find out that we haven't changed at all Pitch-black running down your back is the feeling of shame And you're locked from inside, blindly craving for some pride Downhill and dressed to kill, you don't look like yourself Leave the past to the past, take a look outside at last [Bridge] I know the secret you are keeping from me We feel the same because we want to be free [Chorus] So let us find out that we haven't changed Let us find out that we haven't changed Let us find out that we haven't changed at all I know the secret you are keeping from me We feel the same because we want to be free So let us find out that we haven't changed Let us find out that we haven't changed Let us find out that we haven't changed at all So let us find out that we haven't changed Let us find out that we haven't changed Let us find out that we haven't changed at all At all

High 02:51
And I swore to take it slow today Waste my time in a way I love But it seems that I lack confidence 'cause you know that I can't say no But why do I always get so high When the time keeps passing by and we're together And now it's like I've known you from the start The same role a different part to play Oh I feel that it is right this way There's nothing more to say right now So today I'm not gonna play the blues I get my feet into my shoes and run And you know it's you I'm running for So you better open up the door and shine So high, chasing rainbows in the sky To find the truth within the lie, the pot of gold And now I'm not afraid to look ahead But I will look at you instead and smile Oh I feel that it is right this way There's nothing more to say right now There's nothing more to say right now There's nothing more to say right now

Someday 03:53
Someday you might find A way to speak your mind And know exactly what to say Your words will never wear away Someday you might meet A love you can't defeat And suffer when it aches to say That happiness could pave the way And you know you can go on To go outside and see the sun Shining bright through cloudy skies Open up your cheerless eyes We are one of a kind Have the same things in mind We despise all the fools Our philosophy rules We might work it out, someday [Verse 2] Someday we might sow The seeds and watch them grow We'll always have our common ground And noone can dissolve this bound Someday we might be Unattached and free Unafraid to take a fall Unafraid to lose it all 'cause we know we can go on To go outside and see the sun Shining bright through cloudy skies Shining bright through your disguise [Chorus] We are one of a kind Have the same things in mind We despise all the fools Our philosophy rules We might work it out We are one of a kind Have the same things in mind We despise all the fools Our philosophy rules We might work it out, someday

Young Love 03:13
I walk the world starry-eyed Wherever my feet may take me I've seen the darkness and the light Couldn't say where I'd rather be Now look at me trembling, paralysed Everything set to stand-by When you walk in I'm unorganised And you know why [Chorus] And it seems that I have lost myself And you make me feel like someone else And if I'd be in league to fit your class I'd thank you for the time But I know that I'll forever stand in line [Verse 2] That perfect grace, and your style Compares to no one and nothing You make a day last for just a while Oh, what a thrill to be near Am I going crazy by your sight? What keeps my pulse rush so fast? Wish I could stand once in your light Would you see me? And it seems that I have lost myself And you make me feel like someone else And if I'd be in league to fit your class I'd thank you for the time And I know, yeah I know And I know that I'll forever And I know, yeah I know And I know that I'll forever And I know, yeah I know And I know that I'll forever And I know, yeah I know And I know that I'll forever stand in... And it seems that I have lost myself And you make me feel like someone else And if I'd be in league to fit your class I'd thank you for the time But I know that I'll forever stand in line

Annie found a shadow at the primrose meadow As the ship sailed into the sun Her first concern is to read Jules Verne Till a new day's finally begun 'cause maybe in a small boat sailing on a star road She could ride Coming round, high speed, waving with her small feet Singing bye, bye, bye, bye Are you looking for a distant destination? A bottleshaped universe of funky chunks Are you suffering from a sense of alienation? Dancing in a world of red-haired punks Dancing in a world of red-haired punks Annie's got a mind of a different kind She never liked to get taught Savvy in the head but her grades look sad She could never be an astronaut... But maybe in a small boat sailing on a star road She could ride Coming round, high speed, waving with her small feet Singing bye, bye, bye, bye Are you looking for a distant destination? A bottleshaped universe of funky chunks Are you suffering from a sense of alienation? Dancing in a world of red-haired punks Dancing in a world of red-haired punks

Let me sleep I don't want to face the world today It hurts so bad to see You challenge life walking a different way And I hope that you'll cross my street someday And I hope that you won't mind me if I stay 'cause I know I can't move on anymore Forever tied up to the floor Hiding from the wild outdoors It's so cold Suppose my fire has gone out by now Emptiness unfolds I'm tired of feeling tired somehow And I hope that you'll cross my street someday And I hope that you won't mind me if I stay 'cause I know I can't move on anymore Forever tied up to the floor Hiding from the wild outdoors And I hope that you'll cross my street someday And I hope that you won't mind me if I stay 'cause I know I can't move on anymore Forever tied up to the floor Hiding from the wild outdoors

Castaway 03:31
Now my fears are fast asleep And I'm longing for a summer breeze And all my hopes and all my dreams Are colourful but just a tease Now where are you? I'm calling out to the sea Hope that you're hearing me I need your company Circles drawn across the sands Like signs that guide the way ashore But here's the future in my hands And I know that I can ask for more Now where are you? I'm calling out to the sea Hope that you're hearing me I need your company And on the edge of insanity I wish it would be clear to me Why you're still not here
9.
The Gift 02:50
You're on my mind nearly all of the time Picture your face in the sun When I'm on the verge of losing the urge Your love leads me on So sweetly you stir up my senses and I'm silently closing the door In raptures at catching the gift of your smile And I need nothing more Oh, what a treat from my head to my feet Every chance that I take My lucky streak is so very unique It will never break So sweetly you stir up my senses and I'm silently closing the door In raptures at catching the gift of your smile And I need nothing more

Lighthouse 02:53
Lighthouse in the storm standing on a lonely shore An old man calls, the tide is coming in And as the waves are getting higher Swallow water more and more I start sinking to the ground, I cannot swim Calling out for you to save me, S.O.S. what's going on? Oh, I forgot that you have left me with a feeling that was wrong How could I assume you'd always lend the hand that helps me out If it's you that I still count on, I will drown without a doubt 80 feet below the surface, only darkness, all I see Is a ray of hope the lighthouse shines for me And as my breast starts aching and I'm running out of air I recognise it's always been there And in this very second, how I wish that it was you Who has lit the fire for me, but you haven't got a clue And again I find excuses for the things you said today 'cause with you I had utopia, but you have gone away

Running from the fire, burning down my soul Climbing to get higher and keep me from feeling low Building up a distance to all I've ever known Taking it for granted that I have never grown Don't need a lover for sexual healing Don't need more novocaine to avoid this feeling My sense of humour keeps on dragging me down Can't stop moving till I get home Safe and sound Running to the seaside, wish that I could swim Wherever it would take me, I could only win Rivers icing over and mountains sinking in Whenever I feel empty and don't know where I've been Don't need a lover for sexual healing Don't need more novocaine to avoid this feeling My sense of humour keeps on dragging me down Can't stop moving till I get home Safe and sound

The Artist 03:18
When raindrops fall and crystallize And trees stand proud and tall in size And shiny splinters reflect the sun Chasing shadows that are on the run Blue was my heart, but colours change As my body starts to rearrange You draw the outlines that make up me You are the artist that paints the scene You capture beauty on the screen Sparkling stars right over me Giving life to a fantasy Majestic oceans in which I immerse Your world is bigger than a universe Blue was my heart, but colours change As my body starts to rearrange You draw the outlines that make up me You are the artist that paints the scene You capture beauty on the screen You capture beauty on the screen You capture beauty on the screen You capture beauty on the screen

Goodbye 06:47
So how could I describe my state? So cold at heart yet so afraid How suddenly the spring decayed... A single word could bring a twist of fate How could I tell somebody? I won't tell nobody, about you No, I won't tell nobody I won't tell nobody about you Every now and then I tried To achieve what you denied I thought I knew where I belong But again you proved me wrong Every now and then I tried To achieve what you denied I thought I knew where I belong The sky reveals a blood-red moon And time is getting short too soon This love has reached the afternoon And flowers dried that used to grow and bloom So how could I tell somebody? I won't tell nobody, about you No I won't tell nobody I won't tell nobody about you Every now and then I tried To achieve what you denied I thought I knew where I belong But again you proved me wrong Every now and then I tried To achieve what you denied A step into a bad mistake The foolish pride you can't forsake How could I tell somebody? I won't tell nobody, about you No, I won't tell nobody I won't tell nobody about you How could I tell somebody? I won't tell nobody, about you No I won't tell nobody I won't tell nobody about you
