Lyrics –

(1)
I’m a stand up girl
Wide eyes lashes curl
Blonde hair, smooth skin
Rred lips, big grin.
My smile is a killer

Tough times for soft girls
In this fucked up world
Games played in style
With too much guile
Don’t look in the mirror.

I thought that I would have to be much better
but you just wanted me forever

(Chorus)
I’m crying out for love
I don’t know how I
Could ever hide my fears
In front of you my love
I wish I had never
Done this to you
It took me far to long to see
The best things are free

The best thing I know is you

(2)
Etticette is my
Attitude for life
Should I feel lost
That’s just the cost
Of being the winner

It’s lonely on the top
And no one calls my bluff
I close my eyes
Shed my disguise
And just take a deep breath

I thought that I would have to be much better
but you just wanted me forever

(Chorus)

I’m just a girl on my way to love
And find the life I’m dreaming of
And that’s what I’m praying every night
When you’re not lying by my side
oh oh

(Chorus)

I wish I had never
I wish I had never
Done this to you

The best thing I know
The best thing I know
The best thing I know
The best thing I know
Is You

Crossroads.

A power ballad I wrote in February 2005 for the wedding of two close friends this March. Demo in mp3-format, 128kbit, vocals by Tobias Schwarz.

Lyrics (© 2005) –

So many questions to ask
So many answers blind and mask
So many secret lies to be told in the name of love
So many moments when to think this might end rough

So many crossroads to take
So many errors to be made
So many feelings to be hurt by the one we love
So many moments when we fear love won’t be enough

Here we are
Hand in hand today
We took our chances
We made our way
And suddenly we both knew
That it’s fundamentally true
I need you.

So many mountains seem too high
So many climbers who can’t fly
So many ghosts to haunt the future from the past
So many runners without a chance to last

So many years that pass too fast
So many that did not last
So many lovers who don’t deserve that name
So many who think that love is just a game

Here we are
Hand in hand today
We took our chances
We made our way
And suddenly we both knew
That it’s fundamentally true
I love you.

Oh I love you
Oh I love you
Love you so

And when we hear our two hearts long
To gladly sing their favorite song
It’s wonderful to sing along
When two hearts begin to beat as one

Here we are
Hand in hand today
We took our chances
We made our way
And suddenly we both knew
That it’s fundamentally true
I love you.

And suddenly we both knew
That it’s fundamentally true
I need you.

GW Blues

A song about a regular Texan guy’s blues in the White House, which I wrote in early 2003. Demo, vocals by Tobias Schwarz. The mp3 is enclosed in the podcast, but you can also download a 64kbit WMA file by clicking here.

Lyrics –

– 1 –
I’m a regular guy from Texas
You know I can hardly read
Went to school to count my cattle
Hoping for oil out in the field.
But I can’t…

I’m a regular guy from Texas
They say I am born to lead
And they put me in the White House
Made me think I were a geek.

– Chorus –
But I can’t read.
I can’t write
I need Condi, and Colin,
To make the army fight
I can’t read
I can’t write
I wish Laura was here
to explain that shite

– 2 –
I’m a regular guy from Texas
Now I think I was born to lead.
I still can’t spell ne-po-tism
but it surely fits my needs
For I can’t

I’m a regular guy from Texas
I know I was born to lead.
That guy tried to kill my daddy
Made me wanna see him bleed

– Chorus –

– Bridge –
Yet I’m the leader of the free world
‚cos Florida can’t count.
And since the leather seats
on Air Force One are fine
I’m gonna run a second time.

– Chorus x2 –
