(English)

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. Words Can Kill by Corny Held  
3:32 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass

lyrics You are so careless when you speak
A spoken word is like a bird
rt won't return once if it's released
And a word, it can kill. a word, it can hurt.

Scars on the soul cannot be seen
Don't treat me like a piece of dirt
Why do you say what you don't mean?
Yes, a word, it can kill, a word, it can hurt,

You know how to use words as weapons
But a target ain't always around
It's all right, it makes you feel better
And you don't give a damn how it sounds

You don't have to insult me
And I don't wont you to lie
It's the way you are talking
That makes me want to cry
Words can also be soft and gentle
Words can be remedies
Words, they can kill a feeling
Words can mean war or peace
And they can be sharp, and heartless, and shooting
And like enemies

And a word, it can kill, a word It can hurt.

3:58 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Detlef Doll: bass
Micha El Dilly: e-guitar
lyrics When I hear Ihe sound of the falling rain
Glimpse erratic drops on my windowpane
Deep in their little light I see
No peace of mind is inside me
I want to lie down and take rest
I wish there was a place to hide
Why can't there be some fog around me
I want to lie down

I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

When I find you standing at my door
When I know what you're waiting for
I feel somehow you're never free
& I need time to be with me
I want to lie down, take my time -
I wish there was a place to hide
Why can't there be some fog around me
I want to lie down

I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

I want to lie down take some rest
I want to lie down out of sight
I want to lie down, take my time -
I want to take my time to live
I want to take my time to love
I want to take my time to think
I want to lie down
I want to lie down on a misty meadow and take some rest

4. You Won't Find What You Seek by Corny Held  
4:45 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, e-guitar
Axel Wagner: perc.
Detlef Doll: bass
Micha El Dilly: e-guitar
lyrics How come I wonder
where I am going
Feeling so homesick
when I got no home
Being with you, Babe
is a castle on sand
It has been drifting
there ain't no land

So I might leave you, it seems, for my different dreams
How come I wonder
where I have been
Remembering places
I've never seen
Being with you, Babe
is a boat on the sea
floating through icebergs - it's hard to be free

So I might leave you, it seems, for my different dreams

and when the sun pours light over me
I wish it was dark then, and see what'll be

and when the darkness wraps around me
I find it so cold then warm it should be

and when I'm with you now and you fill me with heat
I'm just longing for love you won't find what you seek

and if some day I'm coming across it by chance
I might want you to be there in that wonderland

So I might leave you, it seems, for my different dreams

5. Love Song by Corny Held  
5:52 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Volker Kamp: bass
Markus Kaiser: e-guitar
lyrics Oh, you can break loveBut then you can't mend it
Yeah, you can shake love and sure you can end it
If you want to take loveYou've got to tend it
If you just want to make love You don't have to spend it
But it's too late to leave
it has grown, it's a home
Don't want back what you give
You can't lend it

Oh, you can tear loveand you don't have to fee it
and you can scare lovein the moment you see it
There are ways to declare love But you can't guarantee it
You may wish that you share love It ain't easy to free it
Then it's too late to leave
It has grown, it's a home
Don't refuse what you own
You can't flee it

What do you cry for?You cannot buy love
Why do you lie for a way to deny love?
There is nothing to die for, so how justify love?
There's no-one to try for,I gave you my love
But it's too late to leave
It has grown, it's a home
Don't you see, life is just
you and I, love.

6. When I Think Of You by Corny Held  
3:35 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: lead voc., a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Volker Kamp: bass
Markus Kaiser: e-guitar
lyrics Stars are shining in your eyes
and I don't know if it's wise
that I stick with you tonight
I remember it ain't right
to believe in your lies

In the daylight we belong
to a world that's sometimes gone
like a prism you can break
pretty colors for love's sake
I don't care if it's wrong

Feel the heat inside your hands
And it seems time never ends
There's a desert in my brain
Killing fear and killing pain
Saying: who gives a damn.

and when I think of you I fall
and when I hear your body call
and when I think of you it's over
But I don't really mind at all
No, I don't mind at all

7. Danny Boy by Corny Held  
3:06 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: all instruments
lyrics Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow

'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

8. Fall And Rise by Alruna  
6:00 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, e-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Michael Hrziwnak: bass
lyrics FALL and RISE

Fall and rise - fall and rise
At night the sun falls in the sea
And the night falls down on me
and the world falls into sleep
something's rising in a dream

Some things rise when others fall
There's no time to have them all
What is leaving, who will call
What is rising from this fall?

In fall the leaves fall off the trees
And cold rain falls down on me
Then snow falls on the mistletoe
And icy fog hides what I know
Watch it move and watch it go
Something's rising and will grow

Some things rise when others fall
There's no time to have them all
What is leaving, who will call
What is rising from this fall?

All life must fall in time
Something's rising in my mind
The world is falling, I stay here
I feel it somehow disappear
It is a show, it's no more real
It won't touch me, that's the deal
And everything's away some day
Something's rising, anyway.

Some things rise when others fall
There's no time to have them all
What is leaving, who will call
What is rising from this fall?
Something's rising

Fall and rise - fall and rise

9. Im Stau by Corny Held  
3:56 min.  
(Deutsch)
Corny Held: Gesang, Gitarren, Keyboards
Axel Wagner: Schlagzeug
lyrics Zur Kirmes fährt man gerne
Von Essen Kray nach Herne
die Cranger Kirmes ist schön gro
da fährt man morgens zeitig los
Auf die A 40 drauf und Mann!
da fängt der Stress schon wieder an

In der Westfalenhalle gibt es
Konzerte, mancher liebt es
Und will die Stars von Welt da sehen
und mit der Freundin hinterher ausgehen
Er holt sie ab und steckt dann fest
Von Mülheim-Ruhr bis Dortmund-West

Für Mama, Papa und die Kinder
ist der Weihnachtsmarkt im Winter
und jede Stadt hat einen andern
zu über 50 kann man nicht hinwandern
man nimmt das Auto, wird schon gehen
und bleibt dann auch schon wieder stehn

So viele Fußballclubs wie hier nur
die haben Fans nicht im Revier nur
Die wollen dem Verein ja nützen
Und ihn persönlich unterstützen.
Sie kommen problemlos von weit her
auf der A 40 wird es aber schwer.

Ob Einkaufszentrum ob Revierpark
Ob Wassersport, ob Tierpark
nach Castrop-Rauxel oder Hagen
man fährt zur Arbeit mit dem Wagen
Zur Uni auch, egal wohin
Schon steckt man wieder mittendrin

Man steht im Stau - Jau, Jau -
Man steht im Dauerstau - Jau! Jau!

10. It's Hard To Be A Fortune Teller (Bandversion) by Alruna  
3:53 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Michael Hrziwnak: bass
Thomas Bartels:e-guitar
lyrics Down in the ocean is a little catfish
He used to be my best friend in a childish wish
Up in the sky there is a big fat bird
His wings cast shadows where no sound is heard
Far in the distance is a story book
casting spells oneveryone who doesn't look
On the sand is a castle with a king inside
andhe has forgotten how to kiss his bride

and I got runes in my bag and a crystal ball, you can ask me anything, I will predict it all
But it's up to you if it's coming true - it's your own decision what you're gonna do
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be decent in a world which is haunting me

Down in the alley is a sick old man
and he keeps his brain in a frying pan
Floating on the river is a paper boat
It's delivering wisdom to the ones who know
And on top of the mall the witches ride their brooms,
there ain't no more ups and downs and there ain't no doom
A young girl is dancing upon a star
and then she gets run over by a model car

I got runes in my bag and premonition inside and fear is on my shoulder and the light's too bright
I foresee what's gonna happen, but it's up to you, you can believe it ot not, what's true is always true
It's hard to be a fortune teller anyway, your world is haunting me, your value is decay

Merlin's grandson made satellite
which can light the whole world in all parts at night
and now the ravens sing it in their croaking voice:
you must look, you must work, you must, you've got no choice
The children can't write and they can't even speak
and they can only see when they're watching TV
They got a button on their back and a little key
and robots produce them in a factory

I still got runes in my bag and a crystal ball - my cards on the table trying to warn you all
and the nothing in the world is such an awful lot that you ain't really got a thing of those you think you got
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be decent in a world which is haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be friendly in your world world because it's haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be - to be in a world which keeps on haunting me
I'm a fortune teller and it's hard to be - your world is haunting me, yeah it keeps haunting me

11. Alchemist's Blues by Alruna  
5:46 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Michael Hrziwnak: bass
Thomas Bartels:e-guitar
lyrics There is a potion to make a life good
what does it take, some fun - some food
But life itself is what you should
as well put in anyway
and here's what I say
it will be good

and then you'll need a few more things
the devil's memory and an angels wing
A poem's wisdom & your latest sin
Put in all kinds of mood
and it'll be as good
as it should

Give all that in an earthen pot
and add a wizard's spell
You got to drink it when it's hot
& use the wind to stir it well

Take water from a wishing well
light a fire of whatever you find
- it's up to you now -
A cauldron full of burning hell
and soothe it with your mind

Make sure you got a dragon's heart
a fairy's tale, an actor's part
Your lucky number and a gypsy's rune
and put alruna in
the color of your grin
and autumn moon

Some artificial sort of glue
All of your feelings that are true
You got to wear a magic ring
and add a rainy spring
an ancient word to sing
a newborn tune

Brew all that in an iron pot
and add a wizard's spell
You got to drink it when it's hot
and use a storm to stir it well

Take water from a wishing well
light a fire of whatever you find
A cauldron full of burning hell
and soothe it with your mind

12. Spinnrad by Corny Held  
3:30 min.  
(Deutsch)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar, Michael Hrziwnak keyboards, bass
Axel Wagner: drums, e-guitar
lyrics Auf und ab und hin und her, rundherum im Kreis
Wie ein Spinnrad dreht sie sich, die Zeit
Rauf und runter, hin und her, alles muss vergehn
Wie die Welt, so muss die Zeit sich drehn.

Zeit, wo willst du hin, irgendwo wo ich nicht bin
Zeit, egal wohin, geh mir aus dem Sinn
Zeit, du musst dich drehn, spinn doch da wo ich nicht bin
Zeit, du musst vergehn - Lass mich hier stehn

Alle Zeit, ob nah, ob weit, Gegenwart, Vergangenheit
geht vorbei und bleibt doch in mir drin
Sag mir wo die Blumen sind - aus den Augen, noch im Sinn
irgendwo, wo ich nun nicht mehr bin

Immer schneller mit mehr Schwung muss das Rad sich drehn
Spinnt Fäden aus Erinnerung und Seide aus Ideen
Rauf und runter und im Kreis herum und hin und her
Sie tanzen einen Tanz fr mich, es werden immer mehr
Wird' ich sie entwirren um ein Netz daraus zu weben,
das Glück zu fangen und zu zwingen, mir noch was zu geben?
Werrden sie Tentakeln und umfassen Ewigkeit?
Ich weiss woraus sie sind, sie fngt sich selber so, die Zeit.

(Deutsch)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
Michael Hrziwnak: bass
Christiane Schmitz: cello
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."

14. Addicted To You by Corny Held  
3:41 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, a-guitar, flute
Michael Hrziwnak: bass
Thomas Bartels: e-guitar
Axel Wagner: drums
lyrics Sitting in the shadow of an old willow tree - all alone
there upon a meadow thinking of you and me - where you've gone
You had said you're gonna meet me in the morning
Sitting in the shadow of an old willow tree -
there upon a meadow, all the world full of glee
Waiting for you, but I guess you are leaving me - all alone.

Birds do fly over mountains and seas
Clouds are white - they are free like the breeze
In the morning, world awaking, there is sunlight and shade
in the morning, I am waiting, cause I think we had a date

and I'm addicted to you, I just can't help it
I'm addicted to you, won't let you go
I'm addicted to you, although I hate it
I'm addicted to you, and I guess you know

Words do fly and meanings don't cease
Vows comply with our need to be pleased
In a promise, hope is rising, growing colors that won't fade
It's a ribbon, it's disguising, it can be an open gate
and I'm addicted to you...

Sitting in the shadow of the old willow tree - don't know why
Spirits got to get low, what you said seems to be - lies, just lies
Don't believe you want to treat me like you're doing
Sitting in the shadow of the old willow tree
Stand me up again, so that I no longer see
if I want to trust you, but I know I'm not free - and I'll try.

15. Four Little Mice by Corny Held  
2:59 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals, guitar
Axel Wagner: keyboards,g e-uitar
lyrics I was just gonna get me something to eat
I knew the fridge was full of cheese and rolls and meat
But when I opened it just guess what I could see and hear
Four little mice were dancing around the beer
They saw me standing there and stared at me
and asked me what the hell that was supposed to be
and started laughing

Ha ha ha ha ha .................

Four little mice were dancing in my fridge
One of them could talk, he said his name was Mitch
He was so cute and shy and had black button eyes
And he could not understand why I was so surprised
They saw me standing there and looked at me
And told me there was nothing left to eat
and started laughing

Ha ha ha ha ha .................

Four little mice are dancing in my fridge
Their names are Jeff and John and Miles and Mitch
I fell in love with them and keep them there for fun
And in my fridge I know a party's going on
When I open it they dance for me
And I don't care what that's supposed to be
and I start laughing

Ha ha ha ha ha .................
