Oh Boy, the world`s a prison for you

Oh Boy, how can we break it in two?

One half is your old life and your disasters

The second half is standing for truth.

 

I hope, tonight my words might comfort you

Think of me when everything is blue

 

And maybe it lasts forever

Maybe another year

Maybe it doesn`t survive the night

Maybe tomorrow`s better

Maybe your head cools down

And the world is turning round and round

Oh boy ( it`s all in you. you can`t see it now )

Oh boy ( it`s all in you )

 

You say, your dreams are loud again

Sleep doesn`t seem to be your friend.

I know, your`re shivering inside

And your outside is in despair to be cool

 

And maybe it lasts forever

Maybe another year

Maybe it doesn`t survive the night

Maybe tomorrow is better

Maybe your head cools down

And the world is turning round and round.

Oh boy  ( it`s all in you, you can`t see it now )

Oh boy ( it`s all in you )

 

It´s all in you

But you can´t see it now

You just have to be yourself and get through it somehow.

It`s all in you

Everybody knows,

You`re the only one who –

can stop this show.

 

Oh boy, the world`s a prison for you

Oh boy, how can we break it in two?

One half is your old life and your disasters

The second half is standing for truth.

The years before you came

Were quiet and annoying

Each day a brand new fake

Each year another fight, yeah.

 

The years before you came

Were always full of hiding

I always played a secret game

I know there is no denying

 

You wanna get over me  ( NOW )

But I am scared, let me breathe!

You wanna get over me ( NOW )

Just like I saw it a hundred times on TV

( Wanna get over me 2x )

 

Now you move too fast for me

Won`t you let me in?

If you would lend me a hand,

Maybe we could win.

 

Remember where I come from

Remember where I stand.

Do I have to tell my story

Over again?!

 

And we`re sitting by the side of the road

Where the busses are rolling by

Red moon`s struggling like a sinking boat

This is our deathless night.

 

You wanna get over me…

Today the air –  tastes sweeter.

It seems the grass – it seems the grass grows greener now.

Oh, after all – the sun does shine

As long as the world goes round – you will be mine

 

And you`re gonna be my

You`re gonna be my –

Nightswimmer. ( you`re gonna be )

 

You, you came along my way when my world fell apart.

You were looking in streets for me to ask  for a new start.

 

Oh, underneath it all, when our story`s told,

Let`s live a new chapter before I`m too old

We`ll walk like two giants across every street

And I am so grateful that we two did meet

 

Cause you`re gonna be my

You`re gonna be my –

Nightswimmer. ( you`re gonna be, gonna be my )

 

And – uh – I will bring you my love

And – uh – When everything else is lost

And – uh – When you feel that I`m moving too fast

And- uh – I will return again and again –

to the start.

 

And I`m gonna be your

I`m gonna be your –

Nightswimmer. ( I`m gonna be, gonna be your )

 

Ah uhh…  ( Gonna be your, gonna be your… )

This is a postcard from nowhere

Waiting for summer

With oh, the pleasures of thinking

 

Streets are all empty

And lights go out early

But I am –

back up with friends.

 

This is a postcard from nowhere

Waiting no longer

That something comes through the air

 

People who are with me

Nobody knows me when I`m

Like I am now.

 

Can`t stand the radio

Tv is running slow

Tonight, I can`t do a show.

 

These are the days

When you know your friends

You`re late in the mornings but ,oh, in time

When time progresses

You realize, there`s hope

in the end.

 

This is a postcard from nowhere

A flower shop right in the middle

Of the big road

 

The woman inside it

She`s staring and whispering

But oh, you know she`s just old

 

You`re addicted to coffee

To chocolate and sugar

And pills take care of you

 

These are the days…

 

Ohh

The status oft he lonely guy

Is fading by and by..

 

These are the days…

 

This  is a postcard from nowhere

Waiting for summer

With, oh, the pleasures of thinking.

You are ignoring all my phonecalls

I know, you got your mobile on all day

I never wanna climb over your wall

I don`t mind what the people say.

 

I never wanna be without you

I never wanna be alone

Sometimes you show your heart of stone.

I never wanna cause you trouble

I never wanna do you wrong

I feel like a man in a bubble.

That´s just me in the bubble.

 

Everything`s gonna stress you up

This is gonna take me away from you.

Maybe you´re out with another man,

Maybe you`re shy or cravin’ again

Maybe you want me to be your friend

Maybe we can go out for the weekend?!

 

I never…

 

Save me – from rain again

Save me from storm again.

Uhuhuh…

 

I never…

 

Save me from rain again

Save me from storm again

Save me and keep me out of trouble

I feel like a boy in a bubble

Feel like a boy  in a bubble

Feel like a man in a bubble.

Cool down, mama, cause I ain`t afraid of this

Cool down, mama, cause I know how to handle this.

I lay down my guns now.

Cause I never wanna be that way.   ( Cool down, mama )

 

Some kind of fever is bringing me out on the street again

Some kind of powerlessness influences me to fight with my hands

I`m feeling depressed now,

Cause I never wanna be that way.   ( Cool down, mama. )

 

And our world could be so beautiful.

And our world could be so beautiful.

Could be a better place to live

When everybody would remember his youth

We need love and truth.

 

Time is running out  ( Time is running out )

For the man in the mirror.

Time is running out  ( Time is running out )

And I begin to shiver.

I lay down myself now

Cause I never wanna be that way.  ( Cool down, mama. )

 

And our world could be so beautiful

And our world could be so beautiful

 

Remind me of my better days

Remind me of heaven

Could it be stranger than this?

Remind me of how the sun did shine

Remind me of `97

Can this feeling come back to remind me of my youth?

 

We need love and truth.

 

And our world could be so beautiful

And our world could be so beautiful

Could be a better place to live

When everybody would remember his youth

We need love and truth.

I`m moving through the water

My hands are full of sand

Into a new born future

To a new found land

My eyes are dry, my skin is wet

My eyes are dry, my skin is wet

 

Everything is cold out here

This land, it seems too big

Moving through the atmosphere

Looking for the kick

My eyes are dry, my skin is wet

My eyes are dry, my skin is wet

 

It`s something `bout religion

That made me come here

 

Where has all the courage gone?

Where are you, where am I now?

Where are you. – Where am I now?

 

Do you wanna dance tonight?

Maybe it`s our last chance

Through the dust and rain.

Maybe a romance.

My eyes are dry, my skin is wet

My eyes are dry, my skin is wet

 

Something `bout my childhood

That made me come here.

 

Where has all the courage gone?

Where are you, where am I now?

Where are you, where am I now?

 

My eyes are dry, my skin is wet.

My eyes are dry, my skin is wet.

It´s something bout religion

That made me come here

 

Where has all the courage  – gone?

Where are you, where am I now?

Pockets of air have filled our time

Not making sense ,a big lack of rhyme

It started out grey,but you made me see red

If you want my advice, now it`s time for your bed

 

But you don`t wanna listen to me

And you try to manipulate me.

 

How can you ask me?

How does that help me?

It`s not how things should be

How can you ask me?

 

Long ist he day and spiteful you`ve grown

A negative instinct could leave you at home

Plundering time has led you astray

Pressuring down till your balance gave way

 

And you won`t hear any of this

So divorce this unwedded bliss

 

I peel you like an onion skin, a thousand tears you hide

Behind your sadness grows a madness

Old man`s lullaby

 

And you don`t wanna listen to me

So it`s time for shaking your tree

No, you don`t wanna listen

 

You`re asking me questions, I don`t have the answer

And how can I when I will sit here waiting for you, on you

This is not about you, it`s about me.

A brave man`s coming to town tonight

He`s the founder of a new religion

Which doesn’t have any corruption or fights

That is something normal leaders don`t know.

 

A strong man`s coming to town tonight

He`s without any arms or weapons

He starts to talk about your rights

And about many other methods

 

See him, feel him and try to be a bit like him

See him, feel him, and you`ll become a better man

 

Become a better lover

A better horse rider

It´s up to you!

Become a better father, husband, become a better son,

Your time is coming soon, soon, soon.

It´s up to you!

And you will discover the moon.

 

So, if you`re on the wrong side of your life

Let him guide you through the night

Don`t wait any longer for a certain call

Just try to break through it all

 

See him…

 

And when the moon is in the seventh house

You are riding into the stars

You will lead the planet

Cause you`re the one who can save us from the doom

You can discover the moon.

 

Become a better lover…

When I am next to you

It feels like I found freedom

When I am next to you

It´s  like I’m coming home

When you are next to me

I feel security.

 

You walk a beaten path

Show me secrets I can hide.

So this is love at last? It´s deep inside.

So this is reality?

You and me like teenage kids?

So this is happiness?

So I will die a little bit

`Cause

 

I can`t keep my eyes off you

Show me how I can feel in blue

I can`t keep my eyes off you

Everything is fading into somehting good

When you walk dead ahead.

Dead ahead.

 

When I am next to you

It`s like there`s magic around

When I am next to you

My head is on higher ground.

You`re giving strengh to me

So this must be heaven´s sound.

( and my head does not cool down

my thoughts are reaching higher grounds )

 

I can`t keep my eyes off you

Show me how I can feel in blue

I can`t keep my eyes off you

Everything is fading into somehting good

 

When you walk dead ahead

And when you`re right in front of me ( when you walk Dead ahead )

I feel my strengh is coming back ( baby, baby, when you walk Dead ahead )

And you`re so close that I can hear you breathe ( baby, when ou walk ahead )

This one is for you and this one`s for me.

I love you when you`re clean again

You had too many unknown men

The streets are your home since then

I love you when you`re clean again.

 

I`ve watched you fall  too many times

Comitted crimes, selled cocaine-lines

To younger boys without a voice

You let them bleed, they had no choice.

 

I`ve heared you lie so many times

I know you cried so many times.

 

You are only free ( ohohoh )

And you can only – feel yourself again ( ohohoh )

You are only free  ( ohohoh )

When your head is in standby

And your motor isn´t high,

So, sleep, baby, sleep.

You are my problem now.

 

Yesterday you lost yourself again

Signed from illness

You better wash yourself again,

My sweet princess.

My sweet princess.

 

I`ve heard you lie –

I saw you die so many times.

 

You are only free…

 

Ohohohoh…

 

I`ve heared you lie. –

I saw you die too many times.

 

You are only free…

Eight o`clock, I`m watching news from all around the world

So many things I`ve seen and so many lies I`ve heared.

I think about this century

and our philosophy

I wanna be sure if this is

my last chance to leave?!

 

 

Today I wish that you could stand inside my shoes

I`m  the one with self-consciousness,

you`re the one I´d choose

 

Cause I wanna hear good news from the Man on TV

I don´t want to get discouraged by the Man on TV

And I wanna hear good news from the Man on TV

And I – don`t wanna get in touch with the Man on TV

Is this my last opportunity to leave?

Is this my last opportunity?

 

Today I try to start to listen to myself

When I don´t do that, my doubts could become real.

I think about my generation: is it like they say?

Are we the lucky ones?

And do we have to pay?

 

             

Cause I wanna hear good news from the Man on TV

And I don`t wanna get discouraged by the Man on TV

And I wanna hear good news from the Man on TV

And I don`t wanna get in touch with the Man on TV

 

Time is ticking, it`s counting ten to one

And when you`re coming here, I will be gone

Time is innocent, it always tells the truth

Counting ten to one, from me to you.

 

Is this my last opportunity to leave?

You turned every room into a dancefloor

You turned every black box white

There is nobody that I adore more

In my life.

 

Turned every bit of bad news into good

You sang every deep note  high

There was noone out of Hollywood

Who could fight you eye to eye

 

You bought all my records long before they were released

Stood in the first rows at the concert halls.

You`ve been the one who always did believe

In me at all.

So, Baby. Please, don`t fall.

 

And I wonder if TIME is bringing me back to you?!

And I wonder if TIME is bringng me back to you?!

And I wonder if TIME….

 

You turned every trick into a good thought

Always tried to be cool

You saved your believe in god

And sometimes broke your rules

 

But life is changing into something new

And I try a new perspective now –

A different way to look at  you.

I`ll get through somehow.

Alone.

 

And I wonder if time is bringing me back to you?!

And I wonder if time is bringing me back to you?!

Dededede 2x

 

And I –  I will be by your side.

When the lights go out to the darkest night

And I will be all with You

When your days are counting: 4,3,2.
