(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar, flute
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass
Jürgen Grewing: e-guitar
Hans Schulz: vocals

lyrics Want to be your lady, like I used to be
And I hope maybe we're gonna meet
You're gone and I'm only longing and lonely

I'm missing you
You're just a handsome guy I know
Walking with you was a show
What you've been doing
I don't want to know

And I can't live without your love any more.

Want to be your lady, be it again
And I hope maybe we're still friends
But now I fell only Low and lonely

I am missing you

If you have time, come over now
I want to see you anyhow
I have been missing you so much
I long to hear you, to feel your touch

And I can't live without your love any more

2. Riverdance by Corny Held  
3:22 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums
Jürgen Grewing: e-guitar
Volker Piske: bass
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar

lyrics The lady of the river
her eyes were green
her hair was blue
and her skin aquamarine
She was wearing pearls and silver on her hands
I think she was a mermaid
but she could dance.

She was a queen and she let her hair float
around her shoulders and around my boat
Her streamline body
sparkling bright
whe she moved along the waves in the pale moonlight

One day at noon
she was singing a song
when the lord of the ocean
came along
He looked like her
except that he was male
with his watery shine and his fishy tail.

And that's the way it is meant to be
He fell in love with her
and he took her to the sea
Never again
I have seen them here
When the moon would dance on waves
I felt she's near

Lady of the river
dance with me
Lady of the river
cold and sweet

3:55 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Andrea Bollig: bass, backing voc.
Markus Kerner: e-guitar
lyrics The world is drowning in the misty fields
Lights are floating on the river
The sky above is crimson and unreal
A breeze is singing, willows shiver
& then a vision creeps into my mind
& makes me see what's gonna be -
I know I want it
I want to see you tonight

And then a mood is crawling over me
I feel my goosebumps to the soles of my feet
It's not a dream, I know it's gonna be
The time when elves and reason meet
There is a fire in the sky above
It lights my soul, it's flashing love
& I surrender -
Want to be with you tonight

& there is life in everything around
& there is life in every moment
& there is life in all the sparkling sounds
& there is life, ist own endowment
Forgot my worries, it is life I found
& all the shadows lead the way - I am coming

Just let me be with you tonight
I want to see you tonight
Want to be with you tonight
I long to see you tonight
Gonna be with you tonight
I'm gonna see you tonight

4. Don't Care Why by Corny Held  
4:36 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar, flute, bass, keyb.
lyrics I had seen you deep in my dream
Can't forget what I have seen
Can't stop waiting that we're going to meet
You were a vision, maybe deceit

How can I ger there, how can I try
I think I will travel high on my sigh
Want to be with you, I want to fly
You touched my soul, and I don't care why

Some kind of magic smile in your eyes
the age you are from maybe ancient and wise
I'm caught in your net like a fish in the sea
mystery spell that you've put on me

I want to float far into that dream
visions aren't always what they first seem
power of mind, here's what I find
giving me time to leave all things behind

5. Hey Joe by Corny Held  
5:16 min.  
(Deutsch)
Corny Held: Gesang, Gitarren
Axel Wagner: Schlagzeug, E-Gitarre
lyrics Der letzte Hippie lebt im Ruhrgebiet
Und We shall overcome ist immer noch sein Lieblingslied
Er hat die Haare lang und wohnt im Faß
unter der Ruhrtalbrücke und raucht Gras

Er nennt sich
Joe, hey Joe, love and peace and rock 'n' roll
Joe, hey Joe, war die alte Zeit nicht toll
Joe, hey Joe, als Hendrix aus den Boxen quoll
Joe, hey Joe, et is vorbei, so isset woll.

Neulich war ne Demo, die Studenten ham gestreikt.
Joe is hin, wie früher, da hat er sich gefreut.
Sie wolln die Welt nicht retten, das Establishment verdrehn,
Es geht nur um die Kohle, aber trotzdem isset schön

Joe, hey Joe, love and peace and rock 'n' roll
Joe, hey Joe, war die alte Zeit nicht toll
Joe, hey Joe, als Hendrix aus den Boxen quoll
Joe, hey Joe, et is vorbei, so isset woll.

Die Mia wohnt in Wattenscheid, wo die Kommune war
noch immer trägt sie Minirock und Blumen in ihrm Haar.
Und wie se auffe Demo stand im Flower-Power-Kleid
Nahm Joe se anne Hand und sagt: Komm mit, et is nich weit.

Ich bin der
Joe, hey Joe, und Mia denkt an rock 'n' roll
Joe, hey Joe, war die alte Zeit nicht toll
Joe, hey Joe, als Hendrix aus den Boxen quoll
Joe, hey Joe, et is vorbei, so isset woll.

Die Mia war ja selber in Woodstock mit dabei.
Sie blieb der freien Liebe schon immer gerne treu
Se guckten an und denkt O Mann, der Typ hat langes Haar,
da geht se mit und geht mit Joe und jetzt sind sie ein Paar.

Joe, hey Joe ...
Wir bleiben hier im Revier

6. Be My Baby by Corny Held  
3:57 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Michael Thieme: bass
André Urban: e-guitar
lyrics Some folks live diamonds,
some love stone
Some don't feel bad
when they're alone
I don't want diamonds
Don't care about stone
and I don't love being alone
Why don't you stay
for a while or a day
and be my Baby...

Some build on concrete,
some on sand
Some never need
a helping hand
I build on nothing
Don't care about home
But there are times
I want a friend
So
Why don't you stay
for a while or a day
and be my Baby ...

lyrics Es freit ein wilder Wassermann
In der Burg wohl über dem See.
Des Königs Tochter musst er han,
Die schöne junge Lilofee.

Sie hörte drunten Glocken gehn
Im tiefen, tiefen See.
Wollt' Vater und Mutter wiedersehn,
Die schöne junge Lilofee.

Und als sie vor dem Tore stand,
Vor der Burg wohl über dem See,
Da neigt sich Laub und grünes Gras
Vor der schönen jungen Lilofee.

Und als sie aus der Kirche kam
Von der Burg wohl über dem See,
Da stand der wilde Wassermann
Vor der schönen jungen Lilofee.

"Sprich, willst du hinuntergehn mit mir
Von der Burg wohl über dem See?
Deine Kindlein unten weinen nach dir,
Du schöne junge Lilofee.

"Und eh ich die Kindlein weinen lass
Im tiefen, tiefen See,
Scheid ich von Laub und grünem Gras,
Ich arme junge Lilofee."

Axel Wagner: drums
Martin Wesolowski: bass
Günther Ernst:percussion
lyrics I was tired in the morning
and I tried to sleep
When all kinds of thoughts would haunt me
Old desires growing deep
and my body seemed to reach for you
No other love was such
We were dancing on a vision
I'm still loving you too much

I could feel your body swaying
in the rhythm of your heartbeat
I could feel your body swaying

I was tired in the morning
I went back to bed
Then I closed my eyes
I remembered what we had
I imagined you were close to me
thought I felt your touch
and I cannot really help it
I'm still loving you too much

I was with you in the morning
Fancied what had been
Felt your hair caress my shoulder
and your hands upon my skin
Satifaction can be absolute
Thrills I try to clutch
I can't give you up like smoking
I'm still loving you too much

9. The Handsome Cabin Boy by Corny Held  
5:59 min.  
(English)
Axel Wagner: drums
Jürgen Grewing: e-guitar
Volker Piske: bass
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
lyrics It's of a pretty female
As you may understand.
Her mind it went off rambling
into some foreign land,
She dressed herself in manly clothes,
Or so it does appear,
And she hired with a captain
To serve him for a year.

The captain's wife sh'd been on board,
She seemed in great joy
To think the captain had engaged
Such a handsome cabin boy,
That now and then she'd fling him a kiss,
And she would have liked to toy,
But 'the captain found out the secret
Of the handsome cabin boy.

Her cheeks they were like roses red
And her hair lay in a curl.
The sailors often smiled and said
she looked just like a girl.
But eating of the captain's biscuits
Her colour did destroy,
And the waist did swell of pretty Nell,
The handsome cabin boy.

It was in the bay of Biscay
Our goddamn ship did plow.
One night among the sailors
Was a fearful scurrying row.
They tumbled from their hammocks
For their sleep it did destroy,
And they swore about the groaning
Of the handsome cabin boy.

"Oh doctor, dear, oh doctor,"
The cabin boy did cry.
"My time has come, I am undone,
And surely I will die."
The doctor come a-runnin'
And a-smilin' at the fun.
To think a sailor lad should have
A daughter or a son.

The sailors when they saw the joke
They all did stand and stare.
The child belonged to none of them,
They solemnly did swear.
The captain's wife, she said to him,
"My dear, I wish you joy,
For 'tis either you or me's betrayed
The handsome cabin boy!"

Now each man take your tot of rum
And drink success to trade,
And likewise to the cabin boy
That was neither man nor maid.
Here's hoping the wars don't rise again
Our sailors to destroy,
And here's hoping for a jolly lot more
like the handsome cabin boy

10. What A Difference A Day Makes by Corny Held  
2:10 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
Axel Wagner: percussion
lyrics What a difference a day made
Twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain

My yesterday was blue, dear
Today I'm part of you, dear
My lonely nights are through, dear
Since you said you were mine

What a difference a day makes
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy
Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss

It's heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is you
