1. Summer
by Corny Held  
4:32 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner: drums

lyrics Summertime coming
with the long dusty days
Everyone sweating
Time to laze
Summertime rolling round
all the moments get slow
holiday feeling
Time to doze

and I enjoy it 'cause I can
sleep out in the sun when I want it
in summer

Summer is coming
with the hot starry nights
and in case you can't sleep you see
the glowworms' lights
Summertime's rolling round
with a shimmering heat
gnats & flies dancing
in the shade of the cherry trees

and I enjoy it 'cause I can
sleep out in the sun when I want it
in summer
sit out in the sun when I want it in summer

Summertime coming
Pools are all full of folks
Everyone's going out
queues of cars on the roads

But I ain't leaving 'cause I can
sleep out in the sun when I want it
in summer
sit out in the sun when I want it
in summer
sleep out in the sun when I want it in summer

2. The Rainbow
by Corny Held  
5:54 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Whenever life is grey
I can see a rainbow
& through the rainy day
the colored lights flow

there it is dry
I wonder why
I got to stay

How can I get there, tell me why can't I
travel above the world upon my sigh

When winds are getting rough
I can see the birds fly
they are so free & tough
& sailing so high

passing me by
far in the sky
they never die

How can I leave reality behind
In sparkling colors find my peace of mind

Feel my thoughts spread their wings
lift me above
the rainbow's colored rings
to winds of love

Freedom around
I hear the sound
of secret things

Higher than kings & higher than I seem
Floating through steam towards a land of dream

Floating through steam towards a land of dream

3. Lullaby
by Corny Held  
3:03 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Hey little baby can you see the moon
It'll light your night, you'll be sleeping soon
It'll send you dreams where the world is fine
because you don't know life, sweet child of mine

Don't you wake up, it'll make you cry
Some day you'll find life is no lullaby
Don't you wake up, it'll make you sad
Some day you'll find life can be bad

Hey little baby can you see the trees
and in their leaves hear the gentle breeze
they'll whisper peace into your ears
and send you dreams of life that knows no tears

Don't you wake up, it'll make you cry
Some day you'll find life is no lullaby
Don't you wake up, it'll make you sad
Some day you'll find life can be bad

Hey little baby can you trust the world
'cause you don't know violence and you don't know greed
the creatures of the night will send you dreams
where the world is nice and the folks are sweet

Don't you wake up, it'll make you cry
Some day you'll find life is no lullaby
Don't you wake up, it'll make you sad
Some day you'll find life can be bad
Don't you wake up, it'll make you cry
Some day you'll find life is no lullaby
Don't you wake up, it'll make you sad
Too soon you'll find life can be bad

4. Dream
by Corny Held  
2:22 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards
Axel wagner:drums
lyrics Dream, dream
dream, dream
dream the world you need

Dream, dream
dream, dream
go to life in sleep

the day is going somewhere else
the light is fading fast
the silence calms the world to sleep
pretending peace can last

Dream, dream
dream, dream
dream the world you want

Dream, dream
dream, dream
go to your favourite haunt

The night is coming, rules this place
the shadows hide in shades
The less you see, the more you feel
the dark and different ways

Dream, dream
dream, dream
dream a world that's nice

Dream, dream
dream, dream
go to paradise

Dream, dream
dream, dream

5. Cradle Blues
by Corny Held  
4:16 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics What'll come, it'll come
What'll go, it'll go
What'll end, it'll end
What you learn, you will know
What you sow, it'll grow
What'll be, it'll be
But tonight you just sleep
go to sleep

if tomorrow's a challenge
if tomorrow is great
if tomorrow brings sorrow
don't worry today
tomorrow is coming
for sure, you will see
but tonight you can sleep
deep sleep

if you jump over limits
if you drown or stand proud
if you meet friends or trouble
today it won't count
the future is coming
bringing what we can't see
but tonight you can sleep
deep sleep

6. Irish Lullaby
by Corny Held  
2:42 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Toora, loora, loora,
Toora, loora, li,
Toora, loora, loora,
Hush now don't you cry,
Toora, loora, loora,
Toora, loora, li,
Toora, loora, loora,
It's an Irish Lullaby.

Over in Killarney,
many years ago
My mother sang this song to me
In tones so sweet and low
Just a simple little ditty
In her good old Irish way
And I'd give the world if she could sing
that song to me today

Oft' in dreams I wander,
to that cot again,
I feel her arms a-huggin' me,
As when she held me then,
And I hear her voice a-humming
to me, As in days of yore,
When she would rock me fast asleep,
Outside the cabin door.

Toora, loora, loora,
Toora, loora, li,
Toora, loora, loora,
Hush now don't you cry,
Toora, loora, loora,
Toora, loora, li,
Toora, loora, loora,
It's an Irish Lullaby.
It's an Irish Lullaby.

7. Life Is A Stream
by Corny Held  
3:23 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar
lyrics Sometimes all thoughts - they have ended to turn
time's dripping out of the stars
Dreams falling down from the trees and they burn
lights into the dark

First there's a blind man, he just doesn't see
Then there's a wise man, he falls
Then there's a wish to show how it could be
But the world's gonna shatter them all.

Wounds get invisible, but yet they last
So many hours, maybe never passed
Love is a vision God put behind bars
It is so far, it's too far

Nothing remains, and the wind's blowing cold
Life is not more than a breath
What's become new, it is really so old
that the earth had to forget

Then understand things you had never known
Life is a stream, never tame
Only in rest can eternity grow,
Something forever the same.

So many things become visible then
So many ways can be trodden again
So much is destroyed that has never been made
So many ages do fade

There is a gate to a different age
to a stream that'll drive us with might and rage
& those waves, they can cause the world to change
Yesterday's over today

8. Good Times
by Corny Held  
3:15 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner:drums
lyrics May all the Gods watch you
in the night
May the creatures of darkness
soothe your mind
May all your dreams be happy
and filed with light
and bring you memories
of the good times
that you might never know
And you find out
what it's all about
Find out
what it's all about
in a dream

May all the elves of summer
warm your soul
May you hear the rustling leaves
whisper promises of peace
May the world provide the trust you need
to grow old
and bring you visions
of the good times
that you might some day know
And you find out
what it's all about
in a dream

May you have good times
just good times
anywhere you go
And you find out
what it's all about
Find out
what it's all about
Find out
what it's all about
in a dream

9. Love's Lullaby
by Corny Held  
3:31 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass, flute
Axel Wagner:drums
lyrics In moments of happiness, in moments of peace
World becomes a resting place & sings songs of ease

Love's waiting for you
Love makes it come true

There's no room for ugliness, feel no harm around
No meaning ambiguous, power of words bound

Why don't we know, why don't we know,
Why don't we know, how to find it

Where do we go, where do we go
follow the power behind it
where do you think you will find it
How do you think it will show?

Love's waiting for you -

Love makes it come true
Why can't we all -
why can't we follow it

Love's waiting for you
Where do we hear -
Love's lullaby

Love's waiting for you
Why can't we all try to find it

In pictures of harmony lies eternity
lullaby for refugees, pleasing to agree
Find comfort in listening to lullabies of love
Whenever raised by tender breezes from above
On rays of strange origin soaring like a dove

10. Hush-a-bye
by Corny Held  
2:19 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar
lyrics Hush-a-bye, don't you cry, go to sleep you little baby.
When you wake you shall have all those pretty little horses.
Dapples and greys, pintos and bays, all those pretty little horses.

Way down yonder, in the meadow, Where little baby cryin, "mama";
Birds and the butterflies flutter round his eyes, And little baby cryin' "mama".

Hush-a-bye, don't you cry, go to sleep you little baby.
When you wake you shall have all those pretty little horses.
Dapples and greys, pintos and bays, all those pretty little horses.

11. Pictures Of A Dream
by Corny Held  
5:20 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass
Wim Kehrmann: piano
lyrics You're in another world
You're in your own true world
A world I cannot share
I cannot reach you there.
Life is too cruel for you
Sleep on, forget the truth
I can read in your eyes
There's wisdom in disguise

I want to share your pain
I want your love again
Want to read in your book of dreams
Don't send me out like this,
You're worth a million times
More than all other guys
Who never doubt or fear
Inside your eyes it's clear

Too short so great a time
When I could drink your wine
Some months could give me more
Than twenty years before.
Most perfect love affair
I will not cease to care
I learned to read your eyes
I know there are no lies

I can read in your eyes
And I see pictures out of a dream

You're in another world
You're in your own true worid
A world I cannot share
I cannot reach you there.
Life is too cruel for you
Sleep on, forget the truth
I can read in your eyes
There's wisdom in disguise

I want to share your pain
I want your love again
Want to read in your book of dreams
Don't send me out like this,
You're worth a million times
More than all other guys
Who never doubt or fear
Inside your eyes it's clear

Too short so great a time
When I could drink your wine
Some months could give me more
Than twenty years before.
Most perfect love affair
I will not cease to care
I learned to read your eyes
I know there are no lies
I can read in your eyes
And I see pictures out of a dream
Pictures, don't you wake up

12. Summernight Dream
by Corny Held  
4:47 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, bass
lyrics High on a cloud in a dizzy night
flying up high to the sun
Moonlight around, just a little light
Misery's gone, it is gone

Floating on air with a scary delight
Pale is the darkness above
Silverish world, there's no wrong or right
flowing upon streams of love

What do you mean when you say you are free
Sail on a cloud through eternity
in a summernight dream
Why can't it be, why can't it be real
it's a summernight dream

There on a cloud in a dizzy hight
liberty leading the way
Only a word, there 's no rest in insight
fever unknown to the day

Called by the sky, hear a beatiful sound
Voices of sirens & lyres
dangerous charm of strange spirits around
flow in a stream of desires

What do you mean when you say you are free
Sail on a cloud through eternity
summernight dream
Why can't it be, why can't it be real
it's a summernight dream

13. Indian Summer Lullaby
by Corny Held  
5:16 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Huge spiders' webs
Trying to catch
Summernight drerams
and sticky they bind ease
In dew drops at their end
Fading sunlight is canned
Still life ahead
Peace and threat newlywed

See the wind in the trees, feel the breeze
See the haze in the says, rime on the ways
Feel the cold in the night, the low, low light
The air is full of drizzle, but even that's all right
It's just fall coming round to calm you down
And the storms sing out their dirge

Hold ot to smoke
Indian summer dope
Thoughts fly down south
in the shape of big black clouds
Joy moving inside
Days are swallowed by night
Still life ahead
the ground a shrouded bed

See the wind in the trees, feel the breeze
See the haze in the says, rime on the ways
Feel the cold in the night, the low, low light
The air is full of drizzle, but even that's all right
It's just fall coming round to calm you down
And the storms sing out their dirge

Yeah, it's fall coming round to calm you down
It is fall coning round to calm you down
With a soft hand on your shoulder you can't turn it down
Just hear the storms lull out their dirge
With the spell of sirens' songs: it's fall that's coming round
With its soft hand and the voice of summer fall is coming round
Yeah, it's just fall coming round to calm you down
Now go out and hear the storms lull out their dirge
It's a lullaby when the storms sing their dirge
