ALL WE CAN DO IS CROON

 

Why don´t you open your window

Why don´t you wave to me from your place

 

I feel so small

But the thoughts are so huge

They overgrow

 

The only worthwhile activity

is to stay home and sing a song

Cause everybody can

 

Solitude is clearly the worst punishment

In a prison, in the mind, in a Prague apartment

The days are long like moonlight beams of a winter's night

And now, my friend, all we can do is croon: la la la…

 

Why don´t you smile with your eyes

When I can´t see your face, let´s compromise

 

I feel so alone

But I am not the only one

Who needs company

 

The only good is it can´t last

until the end of our days

time brings harmony

 

Solitude is clearly the worst punishment

In a prison, in the mind, in a Prague apartment

The days are long like moonlight beams of a winter's night

And now, my friend, all we can do is croon: la la la…

 

EMPTY HOUSE

 

I packed my bags again,

backpack on my back and wine in my hand

A warm jacket in case it blows

or if I needed something soft under my head

 

I took a decisive move but as I approached

the uncertainty made my pulse race

and hung iron weights on my legs

 

And then from the opposite hill

I saw a light and the warmth of the family hearth

As her car drove away, I stood still

of my own free will, I ran down the hill

 

As far as the foot can go up

I walked mindlessly until my fear

replaced joy like hate replaces love.

 

And then I stood on your terrace

and stared through the shutters into an empty house

empty but fragrant and cozy

and dreadful because it belonged to your spouse

 

Why is it that every time I'm on the road

I never find you here and when you're here

you're not alone? Maybe it’s time to let it go

 

And so I stare at the shutters

I see nothing more but my disappointed face

Aged with waiting and hiding

True feelings for the man who’s got a different base

 

Suddenly I realised that I wasn't yours

And thankfully, I never have to be.

Only half the love is not for me,

and the light of the house went out to shine

to another path of mine

 

 

LOSE AND GET

Travel, I can travel by train.
Walk, I can walk outside again.
Who would say, who'd believe so?
A year, a month, even a week ago?

Eat, I can enjoy eating any time,
Baguette and cheese, fruit and sweets.
These are all mine!
It's deep and intense being just fine.

Lose and get, lose and get back
Let's concentrate on what we do now
Lose and get, lose and get back
Let's discover the little joys we have. But how?
You'll find your answer.
I wouldn't be there yet
Without the lose and get.

I am part of something bigger than this.
One of my lessons came to me.
And on the verge of life
Through asking for help I found love.

I found the big, the biggest bridge
Built the town around it and wrote the anthem.
My closest ones are the neighbours.
The colleagues are my angels and so am I for them.

Lose and get, lose and get back
Let's concentrate on what we do now
Lose and get, lose and get back
Let's discover the little joys we have. But how?
You'll find your answer.
I wouldn't be there yet
Without the lose and get.

Walls and doors are mirrors
Flowers and trees can actually draw.
We know how to fly and laugh
And how to tell cooked from raw.

We dance every day, we sing every night,
We see even the smallest light.
In a moment it can all be gone.
The secret is to dream, believe and go on.


Lose and get, lose and get back
Let's concentrate on what we do now
Lose and get, lose and get back
Let's discover the little joys we have. But how?
You'll find your answer.
I wouldn't be there yet
Without the lose….

Lose and get, lose and get back
Let's concentrate on what we do now
Lose and get, lose and get back
Let's discover the little joys we have. But how?
You'll find your answer.
I wouldn't be there yet
Without the lose and get.

 

 

MONOLOGUE TO GRIEF

 

I wish we could talk

But you´re not a person

You did not give me a chance

to work things out myself

 

I wish I‘d listened more

Before you came to me

I wish I‘d recognized

what was not good at all

 

Well now you are here

I´d offer you a beverage

But I don´t welcome you

and I wish you were gone

 

Please let me stay alone

I’ve already got your point

I admit I was blind

But this is a little far out

 

You took years off my life

but gave me one true love

I´m exhausted by the pain

but fulfilled by the growth

 

And I should say thank you

but I think you should leave

I am a good person

Who deserves to enjoy life

 

//: I‘m taking back my wings

I‘m taking back my smile

I am a good person

who deserves to enjoy life ://

 

 

NOBODY KNOWS

 

Nobody knows,

nobody knows,

nobody knows a thing.

 

When I just ask
about the past,
nobody knows anything.

 

Nobody heard,

nobody heard,

nobody heard a peep.

 

Why does she keep me

when I just sleep?

Nobody heard a peep.

 

Please don't tell me you don't know.

Please you don't have to live in a woe.

Please don't go as well with the crowd.

Please just shout it all out loud.

 

Nobody saw

nobody saw

a thing.

 

Why am I cold
when she is spring?

Nobody saw anything.

 

Nobody said,
nobody said,
nobody said a word to me.

 

What happened to her,

the story is blurred,

nobody said any word.

 

Please don't tell me you don't know.

Please you don't have to live in a woe.

Please don't go as well with the crowd.

Please just shout it all - - -

 

Please don't tell me you don't know.

Please you don't have to live in a woe.

Please just move yourself from the cloud.

Please just shout it all out loud.

 

 

OPPORTUNITIES

 

It's late in the evening, time to go to sleep

I'll tell you a little story about people and opportunities

There was a teenage boy who got seriously sick

But then he got a good life, a beautiful wife and two smart kids

He became a good doctor cause of the knowledge he gained in youth

 

Depends how you see things

Depends what you learn

If you pray for good times

You don't get them right away

 

Depends how you see things

Depends what you learn

If you pray for good times

Don't expect them right away

 

//: What God does for us

He offers opportunities ://

 

It's late in the evening, time to go to dream

You can ask that boy to tell the story that should never disappear

He sees a different world after what he's been through

Now he would say thank you cause he learnt what not to do

He became another person - the one he wanted to be

 

Depends how you see things

Depends what you learn

If you pray for good times

You don't get them right away

 

Depends how you see things

Depends what you learn

If you pray for good times

Don't expect them right away

 

//: What God does for us

He offers opportunities ://

 

PIECE OF WOOD

 

Piece of wood, piece of wood

that I never understood

Why it had a special meaning for me?

 

Piece of wood, piece of bark

I’ve got always in my pocket

and it keeps me away from the dark.

 

Once you asked me why

I never really cried

And I said there would be no way to survive

 

Even though it was hard

you found out where to start

How to bring me a small piece of home

 

Ref.: Piece of wood...

 

You needed your way

your forest and clay

your days away from the people and the town

 

you brought a saw

into the woods

you carved me a little charm without a flaw

 

Ref.: Piece of wood...

 

You‘ve put your woes

in this piece of pine

and prepared another chamber for mine

 

Cause wood can absorb

all unwelcome moods

and whisk them away over the skyline

 

Ref.: Piece of wood...   2x

 

 

WAKE UP CALL

 

When she walks back to the beginning,

in her mind and in her heart,

nothing but a warmer feeling

comes out as the beauty of art.

 

What happened on the way here

that she can't focus her eyes?

That she can't truly cheer

even though she has always been wise?  Ooo

 

All we see is a knot of troubles

but under an armour, behind a wall

is still some softness that yearns to double.

Perhaps all she needs is a wake up call.

 

Somewhere in the game she lost her face.

Between disillusionment and deeper sorrow

she couldn't find a button to the next phase.

She gave up to rejoice in a morrow.

 

When she stops to fight the flow

of inconceivable thoughts,

a bright remembrance clears a port

to remind her who she was. Ooo

 

All we see is a knot of troubles

but under an armour, behind a wall

is still some softness that yearns to double.

Perhaps all she needs is a wake up call.

 

One should keep his eyes wide open

and always look behind that wall.

What could have been done? What words remained unspoken?

What could have saved one's life was a wake up call.  Ooo

 

 

WHEN YOU´RE SO FAR AWAY

 

My Love how can I talk to you

With that sound delay

My Love how can I smile to you

When you're so far away

My Love how can I get squashed in your arms

When you simply cannot stay

My Love how can I get lost in your eyes

When you're just so far away

 

We'll find our way

Like we always do

These strings nobody can break

Nothing can make them out of tune

 

Here is what I can do

Here is what I wanna tell you

Every time I hear you or see you

It's always the same

Here is what I can do

Here is what I wanna tell you

Every time I fall in love with you

again and again

 

My Love how can I make you laugh

When the situation seems so grey

My Love how can I hug you tight

When you're so far away

My Love how can I give you bliss

When you cannot make me sway

My Love how can I give you a kiss

When you're just so far away

 

There's always something new

That's trying to separate our paths

But even when the distance makes me blue

My heart always belongs to you

 

Here is what I can do

Here is what I wanna tell you

Every time I hear you or see you

It´s always the same

Here is what I can do

Here is what I wanna tell you

Every time I fall in love with you

again and again
