In Between Days

Tell me ... What did you do on Monday?
Who'd you see on Wednesday
And who was with you on Friday?

Yesterday is history
And tomorrow is a mystery
But the memories you make today
Eventually will fade away

Isn't that strange?
The days are the same
But the memories will be replaced

That's because most of them aren't relevant to your story
That's why we have a selective memory
The reason that today eventually fades away ...
In between days

A future

If you wonder
why you exist
if you think
you won't be missed

if your head is
spinning around
if your happiness
cannot be found

if you're too tired
for another fight
If you could use
a guiding light

then please, believe
because it's true
there is a future
and it's right ahead of you

Vacation - Urlaub


With pedal, to the floor --
on autobahn, I soar.
Kein blau-licht, hinter mir.
On Urlaub -- kindern cheer!

With worries, left behind,
to Mozart's music, find.
In Salzburg's alte stadt,
the sweet air, keenly-sought.

Die kuchen schmecht, sehr gut --
with hard-won Euros, bought.
Die kindern were sehr-stuffed.
Bei mir, der Wein, enough.

From down the narrow street --
die enge strasse, sweet --
eine schöne melodie,
from Mozart, and, for free.

Aus nearby kirche, born,
like clothing, to be worn.
Surrounding us when there,
we bore to northern air --

Vacation clothes,
for rest of year.

A little journey

I look at the clouds
and see the heavens above
rain falls down on me
there flies my one true love

And even though he's so far away
I feel his heartbeat next to mine
his skin so soft and warm
that gives me a feeling oh so fine

Only true love can answer all questions
questions about feelings and emotions
the answer isn't always truthful
but full of passion and devotion.

My love is almost home
I'll hear him today,maybe tomorrow,
but my heart starts beating faster,
I can see his reflection in my window

Until the end of times,
I'll hear his soft whispers in my head
"I'll be home soon my love"
that is truly what he said.

Dream The Moment



Happiness is never too far away
Its always there to embrace
Its always a friend when you believe
But don't put it on sale
It just won't stay,
If your creed gets in the way

Live in the moment
And live the lessons you've learned

Yesterday's gone
Tomorrow's attitude,
Is ready to be born

So dream the moment
And count your blessings,
Before the dream gets burned

The world is a stage for us to play
Its always there each and everyday
Play your part but don't be naive
Don't believe in fairytales
They just wont last,
If you don't appreciate what you have

So live in the moment
And live the lessons you've learned

Tomorrow's dream
Yesterday's ingratitude,
Is ready to make a scene

So dream the moment
And count your blessings,
On every page that gets turned

"By Any Old Light"

caught myself lookin' again
like i sometimes do
out the window at the bank parking lot
i look a little farther then i see
the light of the moon
shinin' on me

(CHORUS)
and this intergalactic traveler
is stuck on the ground
the sound of the Earth
is a deafening sound
lookin' at the moon
from way below
tends to bring me down

i've been stuck on this lonely rock
for years without end
i look at the space and then i see my face
i look a little father then i see
the lights of my home
shinin' on me

and this intergalactic traveler
is stuck on the ground
the sound of the Earth
is a deafening sound
lookin' at the moon
from way below
tends to bring me down

(BRIDGE)
these people down here
are out for blood
they tell each other what to do
they don't know how blind they seem
by any old light
or the light of the moon

and this intergalactic traveler
is stuck on the ground
the sound of the Earth
is a deafening sound
lookin' at the moon
from way below
tends to bring me down
