1. Winter Stranger
by Corny Held  
4:35 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitars, bass
Axel Wagner: drums

lyrics Winter is rolling around
Snow lies on the ground
it's cold and it's quiet
in the fields

Ghosts of cessation are there
trying to haunt and to scare
Just brave them, start something,
don't yield

Traveling stranger, you can stay
for a night, or for a day,
for a memory, or till May,
it's a station on your way

Stranger of frost, come inside
Let's share a little warmth tonight
and maybe a dream
or light a fire

Winter's pregnant with a spring
While waiting we can sing
Songs of old or of
hearts' desire

Winter stranger, you can stay
for a night, or for a day,
for a memory, or till May,
it's a station on your way

Maybe you'll stay till it's green
I will not ask where you've been
if it feels good and cosy
it's all right

But some day you will have to go
in some other swirls of snow
and travel on and wander
through that white

Winter lover, you can stay
for a night, or for a day,
for a memory, or till May,
it's a station on your way

2. Winter Blues
by Corny Held  
3:26 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics The fog is frosty around the gluvine stall,
it is dark and cold outside
Folks go shopping at the mall,
the shops are bright with light.
There are sales and presents and lovely things
like plastic toys or diamond rings.
Nobody needs them, that is true
But it's fun to look and helps to kill that winter blues.

Chase that winter blues away

The winter solstice night is long,
there are parties every day.
That is good for socializing,
to laugh and dance the chill away.
The people are nice and eat delicious things
and enjoy a lot of pretty colorful drinks,
wearing fancy clothes and trendy shoes
so they can forget and overcome that winter blues

Chase that winter blues away

In the streets big flakes whirl in the storm,
They're empty, hostile, feel forlorn.
But the pub's alive with cheerful songs
folks can listen to or sing along.
The drinks are hot, the mood all right,
that place is good for a winter night.
There's friends, and games, a quiz, and booze
to warm you up and to defeat that winter blues.

Chase that winter blues away

3. Snow
by Corny Held  
2:52 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, all instruments
lyrics The year is over
some plans have come real
and some others remain a dream

You can look back
at events and assume
what's ahead from the things you see

Snow is falling all around
where we wander, on the ground
and we don't know where we are bound

The past has gone
and the present has stalled
we don't know what the future brings

It hides in thoughts
or ideas, maybe in snow,
flying fast on its silent wings

Snow is falling all around
where we wander, on the ground
we cannot know where we are bound

Do we need
what we got, do we get
what we need to live and survive

Let's take time
take a break, think and weigh,
change, take over, we can decide

Snow is falling all around
where we wander, on the ground
no-one knows it where are bound

Snow is falling - And we wonder

4. Fairy Tales In A Christmassy Shop-Window
by Corny Held  
4:24 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass, effects, flute
lyrics I went down to the city - saw the people in the crowd
Illuminations so pretty, and the traffic so loud
Christmas is coming, and the folks are running
They're spending money to buy peace for just one day
It is cold in the air, and cold in their eyes
Maybe they are tired, some dissatisfied
Look into their faces, see no truth, see no lies
not the creatures in the window from a world which they deny.

and then I remember the days when I was a child
Winter rolling round slowly, snowflakes dancing wild
Smell of cookies in the kitchen, peace over the fields
In the homes to the candlelight frost had to yield
and the flute music mellow and the fires burning yellow
There was time for stories and passion and song,
Time that for good seems to have gone

and then you step into a fancy fairyland
Where silky flowers on the windowsills wave hello with their heads and hands
and the old houses smile at you with their framework eyes bent
Where a silly ugly dwarf courts a pretty young princess
and where evil is fought bravely till it falls in a well
and where stories of old are chirped by green finches
and you feel with those figures, feel the truth that they tell

and the tune of the Pied Piper is calling you aside
and you follow a miracle, in your heart you're a child
Not aware of a spell broken only ouside
There is something about it - it has got to do
with Cristmas time anyway, who dares say it ain't true
All tales may be right and are righteous and wise
and all things exist in this world, even lies.

5. Fire
by Corny Held  
3:24 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, bass
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics The fire whispers words of warmth
when it is cold outside
The fireplace is bright with light
when it is dark at night
The smoke is curling up outside
and seasons winter's air
The flames are burning high and low
and restless everywhere

It's always different from itself
each flame a new creation
The atmosphere it spreads is calm
the mood for meditation
The burning beauty of the blaze
lies in ist lively shape
All kinds of figures forming fast
short visions that escape

It looks so cosy, tender, soft
when wrapped around the logs
Bur it's mere sham, 'cause it destroys
the things it nourishes of
Small yellow tatters get torn off
the frazzled patches flare
they give a second's life to ribbons
that vanish in the air

Fluttering motion on crackling ground
unsteadily flickering sparks
Get sucked up by the chimney flue
and swallowed by the dark
What was a blazing carpet first
turns into embers fast
A glowing transitoriness
just ashes left to last

6. Lace Around the Lake
by Corny Held  
3:13 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, bass, keyboard
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics The trees are white and stand in line
Tike lace around the lake
The sun is cold, but tries to shine
Red rays upon short days

The forest now looks transparent
No good place to survive
The ice is black and treacherous
But life defiantly strives

Views to behold are in the cold
Hidden spirits can unfold
No trouble, no strain, no duties remain
Essentials reveal. Take Pause and feel
What is real


In times like these it's hard to tell
How sleep and death may differ
It's some kind of enchanted peace
That magnifies the shiver

The silent beauty casts ist spells
On those who dare surrender
And they can hear what spirits tell
- old wisdom to remember

Views to behold are in the cold
Hidden spirits can unfold
No trouble, no strain, no duties remain
Essentials reveal. Take Pause and feel
What is real


Listen to the wordless lyrics
Feel serenity unwind
Gain new power, ease your mind
Find what you've always tried to find

This time is short and fragile though
Maybe forgotten fast
Catch some precious magic moments
And store them where they last

Views to behold are in the cold
Hidden spirits can unfold
No trouble, no strain, no duties remain
Essentials reveal. Take Pause and feel
What is real

7. Nebelwiese
by Corny Held  
3:33 min.  
(Deutsch)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar, flute
Axel Wagner: drums
Michael Hrziwnak: bass
lyrics Es regnet Topfen an das Glas
Sie irren hin und her zum Spass
In ihrem kleinen Flackerlicht
erkennt man: Ruhe gibt es nicht.
Ich will nur träumen, möchte ruhn
Nichts mehr versäumen, nichts mehr tun
und ungesehn die Zeit verstehn -
Es müsste eine Wiese sein
mit Morgennebelsonnenschein
für mich alleine

Da kann man liegen und zum Frieden fliegen und alles sein -

Wenn du vor meiner Türe stehst
Und wartest dass du mit mir gehst
Seh ich, hell wie im Neonlicht
geschrieben: Freiheit gibt es nicht.
Doch ich will träumen, brauche Zeit
Nichts mehr versäumen, nichts mehr eilt
Und alles schwebt und alles lebt -
Es könnte eine Wiese sein
im Abendnebelsonnenschein
für mich alleine

Da kann man liegen und zum Frieden fliegen und alles sein -

Ich will nur träumen, möchte ruhn
Nichts mehr versäumen, alles tun
Und ganz allein nur bei mir sein -
Es könnte eine Wiese sein
im Morgennebelsonnenschein
Da will ich Zeit, doch ist es weit
für mich alleine -

Da kann man liegen und zum Frieden fliegen und alles sein -

8. When The Sun Rains Down
by Corny Held  
4:13 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar, bass
lyrics When the sun rains down it burns the ground

Let the rain rain down and soothe it with ist coolness
and make old seeds grow
Let the winds of winter blow it full of snow
and make it rest and glow
And in spring again when ices melt
its magic shows, I think you know

Whenever hate rains down the world is drowned

Let the tears stream down and configure it with magic
and make love grow
Let the storms of passion cover it with coal
and lite your soul
Let the lights of midnight vaporize its steam
you know what I mean

Rain will fall to make things grow
Storms will blow to lite your soul
ice will melt and life will show
changes are to come and go

Let the rain soothe burns and cry with you
and make life grow
let passion lite the ground around
and warm your soul
let the ice then melt to stream and steam
You know what I mean

Rain - make love grow
Love - lite our soul
ice - melt and go
sun - rain down
soothe it

9. 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

10. Snow Queen
by Corny Held  
6:33 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar, flute
Michael Hrziwnak: bass
Axel Wagner: drums
Holger Klemm: e-guitar
lyrics She was wearing metal earrings and her eyes, they were all ice
Icicles were in her hair, her dress was long and white
So cool she was, her body and her heart were made of snow
Her beauty so deep frozen that it never seemed to go.


And she was sparkling, when she danced on ice
Sparkling - in the pale winter sunlight
Sparkling, through the falling snow
sparkling - in the winter moonglow
Sparkling -
She was his queen, the snow queen of his dream


She lived inside a castle, the northwind blowing through
with translucent walls in pale light blue
Before the ice-flowered windows dark world in white got lost
Her wishes of snow crystals, her soul it was all frost.

And she was sparkling, when she danced on ice .


He decided to go anywhere to find her there
Where is was and how he should, he didn't even care
His love deep and longing, his heart was all aglow
He knew that he would make it, and he wasn't scared of snow.


One day he really saw her, so great was his desire
he fell in love at once, she set his soul on fire
But warmth was not her world, she started melting in the heat
And soon became a water pool around his feet.
the castle put the fire out as it came on dripping down
He felt like screaming and he frowned, but quickly he got drowned
And all you see there now is a mighty iceberg on the ground
Mysteriously gleaming blue with iceworks all around


and it is sparkling in the dance of snow
it is sparkling in the winter moonglow
sparkling - in the starry nights
sparkling - like the queen of ice


And she was sparkling, when she danced on ice .

11. Over
by Corny Held  
2:53 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar

lyrics Christmas is over, Cristmas is never again
Late in december you tried to tell me
you didn't like my lifestyle
All things are ending, don't you confuse me
my life ain't over, I'm feeling fine

Christmas is over, Cristmas is never again

Lasted a long time, years I will treasure
what'll come now I wonder
Ends are beginnings of a new pleasure
I'm looking out towards fun there

Christmas is over, Cristmas is never again
Our love is over, it'll come never again

I am not sad, I must accept what you say
Our time was good, and I'm grateful today
That is the way things are going some time
Felt it before that you're no longer mine
But I don't care because you don't own my heart
I will look forward to another new start

Cristmas is over, Christmas is never again
Our love is over, it'll come never again
Our love is over, you made it come to an end
Our love is over, your life is no longer mine
All things go over, they must go over in time
