15 seconds

Fifteen seconds, in this time you make hundred meters easily,
a time you go through thousand times a day,
without my knowledge it pass away,
sometimes agonizing slowly, sometimes starting quickly,
do you know what you´ve done in the last fifteen seconds?

Fifteen seconds, that´s time enough to die for hundreds,
Fifteen seconds, that´s not time enough to understand,
Fifteen seconds, that´s time enough to die for hundreds,
Fifteen seconds, that´s not time enough, time enough,

Fifteen seconds, I´ll still feel your breath,
I´ll see your fear in your eyes,
I´ll know that you´re honest, I could fall in love,
your face it´s so tender,
I hold it in my hands, with this childlike,
astonished expression,
there is only depth, blue sky, glittering wet,
fragments sink into the ocean,
open mouthes, crying soundless,
hopeful men keep their eyes closed,
blinking between tears into the sun,
hold on to what´s going under, hold on.

Fifteen seconds, that´s time enough to die
for hundreds,
Fifteen seconds, that´s not time enough
to understand,
Fifteen seconds, that´s time enough to die
for hundreds,
Fifteen seconds, that´s not time enough, time enough,
why do you have to die, why do you have to die now.
No, no, no.

A Secret

She is fine, over my head,
Looking well, teaching kids,
She is mine, in my dreams,
Her smile warms me up like nothing before.

Yearning eyes, reaching my soul,
A silver key, open my door,
Spoken words, make me high,
At night I realize I´m in love with you.

You´ve got a secret baby, you´ve got my hands to hold,
You´ve got a secret baby, you´ve got a thought so cold,
You´ve got a secret baby, you´ve got my card to hold,
You´ve got a secret baby, you´ve got a heart so cold.

Tell me why, y´don´t wanna talk,
Tell me why, y´don´t wanna meet,
Let it go, don´t let us doubt,
Her cold words make me freeze like nothing before.

Deeply sad, I lost my heart, couldn´t stand the devil´s heart,
Broken wings, broken wings, broken wings, will fly no more.

Lost my mind, running around,
Crying loud, hanging around,
Angry now, playing a clown,
Knowing well, it ends before it begins.

fade out with 'so cold' and 'make it alright now'.

Waiting

Waiting for the one I know, out of my dreams,
Waiting for the things you do, to make me dream,
Knowing it´s time to go, out to the unknown,
Knowing you´ll stay right here, it couldn´t be true,
Saying you love me so, I´m the one you know,
Saying I´ll miss you so, you´re the one I know,

And the new day´s rising, the new day´s sun will shine.
Waiting, staying, falling, crawling, everything will change today.

Waiting for the one I know, out of my dreams,
Waiting for the things you do, to make me dream,
Hoping you´ll find your way, to survive,
Hoping I´ll find new friends, and don´t look back,

And the new day´s rising, the new day´s sun will shine.
Waiting, staying, falling, crawling, everything will change today.

Waiting for the one I know, out of my dreams,
Waiting for the things you do, to make me dream.

Light on the horizon

Looking out of the window, I see a clouded sky,
Yet on the horizon, it´s clear and blue,
Watching this sunset, this light on the sky,
that doesn´t want to die,
Seen it hundred times, but still not conciously,
Only recognized and felt through you.

The light is the hope, the yearning, the love, arises next day again,
Watching the TV-tower, for many this is
the light that shines,
Watching the chimneys on the roofs,
Reminding me of the warmth that everybody needs,
Watching the money-market that shines
big up in front.

But my eyes strive for the horizon,
Where no cloud and no stone can dim
the light of the sun.

I´m lighting a candle ´cause it should stay,
it should stay,
And remember me that I saw it through you,
Hoping it´ll find my heart, will find my heart.
