Sunday Mornings The lake lies quietly like a mirror and the sun hangs low in endless winter skies of blue and gray Shadows getting longer and the spirits of the lake would walk a while with me to tell me what I knew before On sunday mornings and thursday evenings When words are falling gently from your lips On sunday mornings and thursday evenings You take me in your arms slightly too long You caress the things you love and when you touch a simple thing I wish nothing more than just being that thing And when you move there is no hurry You get all the time it needs to fill the space around you with your love Thanks for giving me your Sunday mornings and thursday evenings When words are falling gently from your lips On sunday mornings and thursday evenings You take me in your arms slightly too long You take me in your arms slightly too long

Green It's raining since a day The wind blows from the ocean through the streets of New York City And a cup of tea warms me from inside As I'm longing for some green and I haven't seen a thousand years And which doesn't seem to be real to me now as the night falls down on me As the rain turns into snow And the only color I see is a shade of gray Your smile comes through a curtain of snowflakes dancing in the wind Whenever I close my eyes I still see the green and wherever I lay my head I still see the green And whenever I close my eyes I still see the green and wherever I lay my head I still see the green of your eyes It's raining since a day The wind blows from the ocean through the streets of New York City And a cup of tea warms me from inside Your smile comes through a curtain of snowflakes dancing in the wind Whenever I close my eyes I still see the green and wherever I lay my head I still see the green And whenever I close my eyes I still see the green and wherever I lay my head I still see the green of your eyes

Love is a butterfly My heart was free, my mind was open Now I'm on my knees, my heart is broken misleading lights in stormy nights Bottomless depths and dangerous heights deadly riffs below the surface and stranded lovers on rainy days Your words like swords, they cut like knifes through my thin skin, into my heart and all my love and my delights are killed tonight by amors dart I fell in love, thought we're friends Now I avenge with poisened pens Love is a butterfly and hard to catch Lovers are an easy find but hard to match Saying I love you isn't easy as it seems saying I don't is something of a kind Wouldn't hurt that much having seen your eyes When you've told me you are not in love Your eyes below pale winter skies would heal the wounds and a black dove would fly into december nights and disappear in fancy lights I set on seventeen and red - should have gone for a dozend or a corner bet I wanted all, I'm loosing high Thought it might be well not being too shy Goodbye my dear you hurt me well but in the end that rang a bell Love is a butterfly and hard to catch Lovers are an easy find but hard to match Saying I love you isn't easy as it seems saying I don't is something of a kind Loosing a friend and some beautiful dreams Is something you just fall behind And you are going down this road tonight I'm watching you until you're out of sight Now I have written these five verses I feel much lighter, now I sung my curses The risk of falling in love with a friend is to loose somebody that means a lot for a chance winning someone that in the end Might fly into the light just like a moth

The last day Sun goes down behind the roof top Streets are getting empty Growling thunder still miles away Silent tears on the phone Wind comes up, the air gets clearer Clouds that look like mountains One of these days you'll realize life's too short to wait life's too short to wait If I knew this was my last day I would ask you to stay If I knew this was the last chance I wouldn't hesitate I thought I heard you calling calling out my name I heard our song on the radio And I wish that you were here I wish that you were here If I knew this was my last day I would ask you to stay If I knew this was the last chance I wouldn't hesitate If I knew this was my last day I think I'd ask you to stay If I knew this was the last chance I wouldn't hesitate No, I wouldn't hesitate No, I wouldn't hesitate

Canvas A daydream with a violine for Judy Diarys for Karla with a K Time and wine for Stefanie With Antje I was outside myself The end of the day with Michelle A station and a girl with an umbrella Sailing to a new shore with Monica The world through the eyes of Simone For girls at the counter, for you and always you I paint my words on a canvas Send the bottle out to the sea and carry on A thousand songs and more for a rainy day Just forgot about Nicole, hey that's for you Was out of focus with an actress that I don't even know by name Ravens on a field with Sabine A bridge in the darkness with Christine And Berlin wasn't real And Sandra, I don't know For girls at the counter, for you and always you I paint my words on a canvas Send the bottle out to the sea and carry on

A word away Warm and dry comfortable and quiet and the stars seem so close A word away just a word away which has still not been found Dusk and dawn The twilight before sunrise Writing and waiting in the desert It's been a while A silent tune A handful of words on a cathode ray tube Cigarettes unsmoked And books unread Tracks unlistened And dreams undreamed Words unspoken And kisses never given And love unmade This isn't love Not even an illusion Do you feel me in my writing? Do you see me in your dreams? I never dreamed of you. Oh, I never dreamed of you We have no past And nowhere to go Just the moment that we live in Nothing in common Nothing to share Except our longing in deserted nights Cigarettes unsmoked... Everybody loves you 'cause you are so likeable And of course you're beatiful because everyone is beatiful When the stars are close When the stars are close When the stars are close They're just a word away Cigarettes unsmoked...

After sunset Sometimes after sunset when I choose to stay and the darkness gently covers the worst marks of the day There's something in your eyes You can't see in the daylight Like a shadow or an imprint I can only see at night Is that cut in your heart still bleeding? Does that scar on your soul still hurt? Open up the ceiling And shut down all the lights All the angels falling Out of winter skies Look at the stars above They're all secrets untold Witnesses of love and broken hearts Is that cut in your heart still bleeding? Does that scar on your soul still hurt? You say as time goes by memories are fading And that you better keep your mouth shut That it's time for me to go You say let's have a last smoke and a glass of wine And you look down the railroad track you look down the railroad track Is that cut in your heart still bleeding? Does that scar on your soul still hurt? 'cause everybody hurts - sometimes

Pocket of moments When your eyes wander like a spotlight through the night It's like a view into a mirror Like I was looking at myself In the surface of the water And my eyes wander from your face down to your chest And I watch you breathing in and breathing out And the colour of your hair And all I'm gonna do is to catch this moment You know I'm crazy enough I'm gonna catch it and keep it forever I'm gonna keep it forever In my pocket of moments And my eyes wander above the roof tops of the city and into the lonely sky With no stars and no clouds And the colour of your eyes And all I'm gonna do is to catch this moment You know I'm crazy enough I'm gonna catch it and keep it forever I'm gonna keep it forever In my pocket of moments

Next boat to the sea Boats on the river it's a quarter to eight you gaze into the distance as you speak You look as if you're dreaming I gave a penny for your thoughts as we walk along the shore but we keep still And the stage is just right here and we're ready to begin But if I could I took the next boat to the sea 'Cause I need summer, sand and wind Everytime I am in love I want the water gently tickling my toes And taste the salt on your skin We walk along the edge between summer and spring A thousand people in the half light sound like waves Waiting for the lights to illuminate the stage And I can see your lonely face in the dark And the stage is just right here... I see your face, I hear your voice, and I can smell your hair I see your face, I hear your voice, I smell your hair Lights on the river it's a quarter past ten There's a shimmer in your eyes that I know well You crack another beer And you light another cigarrette And you talk about your dreams and your fears And the stage is just right here...

As seagulls fly Your Footsteps leading north north west Seagulls gliding 'long the beach They sing along with me All summer long I was gathering some love and sunbeams and fairytales So when the days are getting shorter We'd have something to hold on to And I watch you walking away In the afternoon sun I knew this would happen As I saw the seagulls fly Your smile is fading as I walk the other way Seagulls gliding 'long the beach They sing along with me I walk along the shore with sunbeams in my heart and fairytales And I really like believing you're as happy as they say So I breathe, I laugh I sing and I think I need a drink I carry on and I watch the seagulls fly And I watch you walking away In the afternoon sun I knew this would happen As I saw the seagulls fly
