When I Depart I'm dreaming of my music in the past Hot fire burns inside me. I'm feeling that the years have gone and passed, Deep scars! So can't you see? Still dancing to my music of today Makes me strong and lets my spirit groove. I hear it on my last and painful way, Pushes me on and makes my body move. Shout out or whisper, hear the wind That tells a story, sings a nice song. Sing out-along! My music-in these loud and troubled times Spends shelter, gives a better place. Enchanted by the flutes, guitars and chimes, Still hear them in the outer space. I'm dreaming of my music still to come, Gives shadow over desert sand. March forward to the rhythm of the drum Shows ways across the unknown land. Shout out ... Hi Ho! Music's all I've got today, So nothing's left to say. Hi Ho! There's a song of peace in me Like an echo in the wind you see. Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Hi Ho! I'm gonna live the groove And know I'm in the mood. Hold on to the tune when I depart!
Promised Land I travelled to the foreign land Through mighty winds and burning sand, And over ice cold streams, you see! I thought I'd found the Promised Land My footprints in the desert sand, At last I found my love in you! Stay! This is your one-way ! Pray! This is your last day! Don't you remember Our time in september We fell in love? At the end of some day I knew what you say, Another man's waiting for you. He came out of nowhere I thought you took great care You got me down on my knees. Right in the morning I gave you the warning Now it's all over! One summer night you told the truth -another guy-, I've go the blues and now I lost my Promised Land. You cheated me and killed our love I hear a voice from far above: "Why don'you pull the trigger down?"
One More Embrace From the ice to the sand I move across the land Miles away From where my search begun It's a long way back to home But I know where I belong Under the rain ander under the sun From where my search begun Pray the Lord my soul to keep I'm thinking of you When I lie down to sleep I fight against the time to say Good bye to you Reflecting your face For one more embrace, Am I next to you? Can I feel you? Can I see you? On my way to Paradise I'll stand right at your site Still believe in love-keep hoping I'll be strong enough Pray the Lord ... Hands on my heart I can't see you right now Give a sign in the dark Hands on my heart Take the pain off my chest All I want is your breath --- I Pray Walk up to me Bring me up from my knees Help me back to my feet --- I say Hands on my heart Wish you were here to take my fear Hands on ... Right from the start I feel your Hands On My Heart a Everytime I think of home I know you're not alone I'll be with your heart though I lost my path I love you Feeling alone Still move across the stones Can you feel me, can you heal me Can you see me? Pray the Lord... Hands on my heart...
Destiny The nights I can't find sleep, your lifelong company I keep- Makes me dream of you, you know I've learned my rule I don't want go back to school, a nightmare would come true. I'm blinded by the the light Recall that summer night When you came up to me. Now you slammed out the door And turned your head to shout: "Don't want you anymore!" So many miles in life, went down the roads for you and me- Here's dead-end street my wife! The look into your eyes Shows every moment dies and everything broke down. I'm blinded... Face a better time for you and me, give no chance to agony. Enough- is said- can't you see, this is what we call a destiny. Leave behind the bad times and let's renew, what we built up in the past. I need- your warm- company, this is what we call a destiny Believe ... in what the prayer sings: Love, love will do Conceive ... his words are everything Love, love will do Relieve ... of what our trouble is Love, ,love will do Achieve ... what we have promised once Love, love will do The Light Is this the coming storm? The wind is telling me it's time, the rain beats on my head The darkness takes away-the sun As brightness slowly dies. Is this the coming storm? I wander down the lonely road, consider it my life. The silence takes away-the sound As nature slowly dies. Light-show me the bright light Enlightening the cold dark night. Light-turn on your bright light and carry me through the night. Light- lead me through dark days Washing the darkness away. Light-show me the bright light Enlightening the cold dark night And see... Voice: When the final chapter now arrives And when it's time for me to go I know: The light will carry me out of this darkened world Into the light.
The Fight Feel your last embrace of daylight, Catch the fading warmth of day, Breeze the icecold air of threatening night On your hard and stoneful way. When the morning due turns into frost A million souls are lost .Hear them sing their songs right out of hell And their passingbell. Say goodbye to all your friends It's the night when mankind starts or ends. Sing out today: "Oh Lord I pray!" Stand up and fight 'gainst the soldiers of the night. I hear them come marching forward to their drum. Laugh into the dark, don't cry. You decide to live or die. Stand up and fight 'gainst the soldiers of the night. Sing out your song, makes you valorous and strong. Be one force!-Reduce their might! So stand up and fight! Stand against the knights of darkness And their army of the death Fight their swords of harsh mercilessness, Smell their foul and icy breath. Drive your sword into their hearts When the deadly combat starts. Hear them sing their song right out of hell And their passing bell.
