SILENCE IS SEXY


COME BACK TO YOU One day our house must burn down My memory will fade Move on, it’s getting late I chose a right direction By opening my arms But there’s a limit to our days This is the end of everything I look forward to And why did I let my daily thoughts lead me away from you? Whatever takes me away I will come back to you I’ll do what it takes to get there Whatever takes me away I will come back to you I’ll follow your footsteps I don’t want a happy ending I just want a start A future for our past Tell me what has happened To endless careless days I knew they would not last This is the end of everything I look forward to And why did I let my daily thoughts lead me away from you? Whatever takes me away I will come back to you I’ll do what it takes to Whatever takes me away I will come back to you I’ll follow your footsteps


NIGHT OUT Let’s squeeze out every drop, life is too short to stop Why can’t we stay a safe distance away from the top? We talk and talk and talk and then agree It won’t set us free The dj is playing a song, I’m caught singing along Words hit my ear and I know crystal clear I was wrong My thoughts go round and round while hearing the sound I still haven’t found


The sheer comfort of drinking and taking pills Is not enough for me I need something real to grasp on to The sheer comfort of drinking and taking pills Is not enough for me I need something real to grasp on to A time to be born, a time to die If it’s all useless, why should I try? To do what is right in your eyes Why should I? A time to seek and a time to lose Do I have options, something to choose? A time to laugh and a time to cry Why should I? A time to mourn and a time to dance Why should I bother if it’s all chance? If life is just one sad goodbye Why should I? I want to live and don’t want to die If it’s all useless, why should I try? The day is done and the end is nigh Why should I? A time to be born, a time to die If it’s all useless, why should I try? To do what is right in your eyes Why should I?


1984 The details are coming back Painting over black They wake me and make me smile On Saturday mornings I was walking on the chairs If I could I’d meet you there Pictures made in ’84 I can’t see them anymore I remember everything The sound of the neighbours’ phone Our broken doorbell’s drone I still hear it loud and clear When the war was still cold The stories we were told They took place so far from here Sit still and wait I’m sailing a stormy lake Picures made in ’84 I can’t see them anymore I remember everything In a dream and on TV All the memories come to me I just want them to remain

The details are coming back Painting over black They wake me and make me smile Picures made in ’84 I can’t see them anymore I remember everything In a dream and on TV All the memories come to me I just want them to remain


THIS AIN’T HOLLYWOOD The way you look reminds me of a movie scene That we were in You said your line and I was shocked in black and white Our plot wore thin How the years went by in a single sigh Have you understood? On this sinking shi p we are losing gri p This ain’t Hollywood Oh, I can imagine everything ends well That far away All the scenes you’re showing me seem to be the parts That I can’t play On this sinking shi p we are losing gri p Have you understood? This ain’t Hollywood You pretend that you’re not faking Plastic dreams won’t last for long And as long as hearts are breaking I’ll play my part by being strong This ain’t Hollywood


ON THE BEACH I went to stay the night away Sleeping on the beach A perfect sight on guiding lights Kept you within reach Our worn-out track made me think back To where it all began While my Faith was When the I was not

trust tried to leave growing underneath my fear rain touched my skin it was clear alone

The stars shine brighter now But it appears to me I can’t make it on my own And let you keep the key While my Faith was When the I was not

trust tried to leave growing underneath my fear rain touched my skin it was clear alone

It’s hard to trust what you can not see When I’m falling you will carry me


YOU ARE A MIRROR If you could name what we want to be part of Ideals that we share but never show The beauty’s hidden underneath the surface Today might be the day to let it go You’re screaming out that you might need a saviour A hero or a saint to heal our broken hearts We should have left these thoughts so many years ago But time and time again we don’t and let them grow You are a mirror showing me what I hide How far do you bend before you break the light? Where can I find the words to take you higher? I’m staring at the books I never read I fear to feel the fear that’s still inside you And fill my thoughts with words I leave unsaid You’re screaming out that you might need a saviour A hero or a saint to heal our broken hearts We should have left these thoughts so many years ago But time and time again we don’t and let them grow You are a mirror showing me what I hide How far do you bend before you break the light?


WHERE WERE YOU Why don’t you tell us Is it better to hold on Than to hold on to what we had? Once we had a dream We all tried to make the best Of what we tried hard to forget On and on we run Looking for cover And something real to cling on to Where were you? Why do you stand so far off in times of need? Let us please set our hearts On something that we can believe You saw everything Kept us waiting Show us the empty parts that much need to be filled Why don’t you tell us Who will lead us To the place where we were meant to lay our hearts Where were you? Why do you stand so far off in times of need? Let us please set our hearts On something that we can believe


TALK The evening was so unreal You asked if my li ps were sealed I tried to talk but my mouth just wouldn’t move Thousands of things to say But to my growing dismay I couldn’t find a single line I could approve In an artless way, all the sounds we play They say what I should tell you without a single word, I’ll make sure you’ve heard I feel for you Maybe we’ll walk the shore Talk about movies and more And I will find a thousand lines you’d like to hear Answers I need to know Do you think life’s just a show? And if I play you Johnny Cash will you draw near? I’m afraid I will never reach you As long as I can’t speak out Words are waiting for you Until I shout out loud In an artless way, all the sounds we play They say what I should tell you without a single word, I’ll make sure you’ve heard I feel for you

I I I I I I I

need need need need need need need

you you you you you you you

here here here here here here here

tonight tonight (I feel for you) tonight (I feel for you) tonight


SPIDER I used to make plans for the years ahead Piled them up inside my head While time spun its web around All the dreams I turned down I have to face now where I have gone ’cause tomorrow has just begun My dreaming heart slowly fell apart Somehow I need another start Spider, you put me in your web And left me there in my despair I’m stuck in my ever growing past Time took over way too fast Is there a way to get out of here? I feel the spider drawing near My dreaming heart slowly fell apart Somehow I need another start Spider, you put me in your web And left me there in my despair If I could turn back time I’d say: Life’s what you make it


CLOSING TITLES I was thinking about the end of the story that I’m in Let’s walk to the horizon and just leave them wondering The closing titles should begin with “it was not enough” I guess back then you knew I wasn’t ready for your love I believe that time will teach me when We’ll meet again and climb our ladder to the moon This is almost home I thank you for the rain that showed me there are times of doubt It made me wonder about the sun and gave meaning to the clouds I’m happy to be here, knowing where I’ll be someday With your heart close to mine we’ll keep the black moods far away I believe that time will teach me when We’ll meet again and climb our ladder to the moon This is almost home
