Lyrics
1. WALKING IN THE AIR

We're walking in the air
We're floating in the
Moonlit sky
The people far below are
Sleeping as we fly

I'm holding very tight
I'm riding in the midnight blue
I'm finding I can fly so
High above with you

Far across the world
The villages go by like
Trees
The rivers and the hills
The forests and the
Streams

Children gaze open mouth
Taken by surprise
Nobody down below
Believes their eyes

We're surfing in the air
We're swimming in the
Frozen sky
We're drifting over icy
Mountains floating by

Suddenly swooping low
On an ocean deep
Arousing of a mighty
Monster from its sleep

We're walking in the air
We're floating in the
Midnight sky
And everyone who sees
Us greets us as we fly


2. ANGELS FALL FIRST

An angelface smiles to me
Under a headline of tragedy
That smile used to give me warmth
Farewell - no words to say
Beside the cross on your grave
And those forever burning candles

Needed elsewhere
To remind us of the shortness of your time
Tears laid for them
Tears of love tears of fear
Bury my dreams dig up my sorrows
Oh Lord why
The angels fall first?

Not relieved by thoughts of Shangri-La
Nor enlightened by the lessons of Christ
I'll never understand the meaning of the right
Ignorance lead me into the light

Needed elsewhere...

Sing me a song
Of your beauty
Of your kingdom
Let the melodies of your harps
Caress those whom we still need

Yesterday we shook hands
My friend
Today a moonbeam lightens my path
My guardian


3. SLEEPWALKER

Close your eyes
Feel the ocean where passion lies
Silently the senses
Abandon all defences

A place between sleep and awake
End of innocence, unending masquerade
That's where I'll wait for you

Hold me near you
So close I sear you
Seeing, believing
Dreaming, decieving

A place between sleep and awake
End of innocence, unending masquerade
That's where I'll wait for you

Sleepwalker seducing me
I dare to enter your ecstacy
Lay yourself now down to sleep
In my dreams you're mine to keep

(Sleepwalk with me...)

Sleepwalker seducing me...


4. SLEEPING SUN

The sun is sleeping quietly
Once upon a century
Wistful oceans calm and red
Ardent caresses laid to rest

For my dreams I hold my life
For wishes I behold my night
The truth at the end of time
Losing faith makes a crime

I wish for this night-time
to last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

Sorrow has a human heart
From my god it will depart
I'd sail before a thousand moons
Never finding where to go

Two hundred twenty-two days of light
Will be desired by a night
A moment for the poet's play
Until there's nothing left to say

I wish for this night-time...
I wish for this night-time...


5. DEAD BOY'S POEM

Born from silence, silence full of it
A perfect concert my best friend
So much to live for, so much to die for
If only my heart had a home

Sing what you can`t say
Forget what you can`t play
Hasten to drown into beautiful eyes
Walk within my poetry, this dying music
My loveletter to nobody

Never sigh for better world
It`s already composed, played and told
Every thought the music I write
Everything a wish for the night

Wrote for the eclipse, wrote for the virgin
Died for the beauty the one in the garden
Created a kingdom, reached for the wisdom
Failed in becoming a god

Never sigh...

"If you read this line, remember not the hand that wrote it
Remember only the verse, songmaker`s cry,
The one without tears
For I`ve given this its strength
And it has become my only strength.
Comforting home, mother`s lap, chance for immortality
Where being wanted became a thrill I never knew
The sweet piano writing down my life"

"Teach me passion for I fear it`s gone
Show me love, hold the lorn
So much more I wanted to give to the ones who love me
I`m sorry
Time will tell (this bitter farewell)
I live no more to shame nor me nor you

And you... I wish I didn`t feel for you anymore..."
A lonely soul... An ocean soul...


6. DEEP SILENT COMPLETE

In your creation heaven did decree
That in your arms sweet death should dwell

Deep Silent Complete
Black velvet sea
The sirens are calling for me

Saved my soul thinking "This song`s a lie"
Sand on the shore is so dry

Deep Silent Complete
Black velvet sea
Brave day sinking in endless night

The age will say "This poet lies"
Heaven never touched earthly face
The age will say "This night was ours"
Blessed with the Deep
The Silent the complete


7. FEEL FOR YOU

You were my first love
The earth moving under me
Bedroom scent, beauty ardent
Distant shiver, heaven sent

I'm the snow on your lips
The freezing taste, the silvery sip
I'm the breath on your hair
The endless nightmare, devil's lair

Only so many times
I can say I long for you
The lily among the thorns
The prey among the wolves

Someday, I will feed a snake
Drink her venom, stay awake
With time all pain will fade
Through your memory I will wade

Barely cold in her grave
Barely warm in my bed
Settling for a draw tonight
Puppet girl, your strings are mine

This one is for you for you
Only for you
Just give in to it never think again
I feel for you


8. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

In sleep he sang to me, in
Dreams he came,
That voice which calls to me,
And speaks my name.
And do I dream again?
For now I find
The phantom of the
Opera is there
Inside my mind.

Sing once again with me
Our strange duet;
My power over you
Grows strong yet.
And though you turn
From me to glance
Behind,
The phantom of the
Opera is there
Inside your mind.

Those who have seen
Your face
Draw back in fear.
I am he mask your wear,

It’s me they hear.

Your spiritand my voice
In one combined;
The phantom of the
Opera is there
Inside my...
Your mind...

He’s there the phantom of
The opera.
Beware the phantom of
The opera.

In all your fantasies, you
Always knew
That man and mistery

Were both in you.

And in this labyrinth
Where night is blind,
The phantom of the
Opera is there

Inside my...
Your mind...

Sing, my angel of music!

He’s there, the phantom of
The opera!


9. OCEAN SOUL

One more night
To bear this nightmare
What more do I have to say

Crying for me was never worth a tear
My lonely soul is only filled with fear

Long hours of loneliness
Between me and the sea

Losing emotion
Finding devotion
Should I dress in white and search the sea
As I always wished to be - one with the waves
Ocean Soul

Walking the tideline
I hear your name
Is angels wispering
Something so beautiful it hurts

I only wished to become something beautiful
Through my music, through my silent devotion


10. LAGOON

Imagine a perfect beach
Without a mermaid
Imagine a perfect
Hideaway
Without a time

Ocean soul

Imagine a perfect Eden
Without a friend without
A serpent

Ocean soul
Lonely soul

"Feeling lonely and
Content at the same time,
I believe,
Is a rare kind of
Hapiness"

Ocean soul
Lonely soul


11. SWANHEART

All those beautiful people
I want to have them all
All those porcelain models
If only I could make them fall

Be my heart a well of love
Flowing free so far above

A wintry eve
Once upon a tale
An Ugly Duckling
Lost in a verse
Of a sparrows carol
Dreaming the stars

Be my heart a well of love
Flowing free so far above

In my world
Love is for poets
Never the famous balcony scene
Just a dying faith
On the heaven's gate

Crystal pond awaits the lorn
Tonight another morn for the lonely one is born


12. TWO FOR TRAGEDY

Sleep Eden sleep
My fallen son
Slumber in peace

Cease the pain
Life`s just in vain
For us to gain
Nothing but all the same

No healing hand
For your disease
Drinking scorn like water
Cascading with my tears

Beneath the candle bed
Two saddened angels - in heaven, in death

Now let us lie
Sad we lived sad we die
Even in your pride
I never blamed you

A mother`s love
Is a sacrifice
Together sleeping
Keeping it all

No sympathy
No eternity
One light for each undeserved tear

Beneath the candle bed
Two souls with everything yet to be said


13. A RETURN TO THE SEA

A star falls down from the darkened sky
Where new worlds born and die
Kingdom Animalia watches its approaching glow
What it means is soon to be known

Beneath the lovely birch honeymakers build their nest in
Peace
On the savannah a lion licks a wounded gnu
To honor this moment even the heavens cease
Giant spiders learn how to swim
With whales they form a united kin

Snakes say hello to the rats on the ground
In the meadows play merrily the fox and the hound

Trilobite & Anymalocharis
The prey and the hunter
Survival of the fittest
Fall of Man

Seadrops foam all empty human skulls
Those on the shores of Atlantis
Darwin's resurrection is witnessed
By turtles he used to play with

Healed and happy She oversees
The Mother
The tyrant's return to the sea


14. AWAY

The days were brighter
Gardens more blooming
The nights had more hope
In their silence The wild was calling
Wishes were whispering
The time was there
But without a meaning

Away, away in time
Every dream´s a journey away
Away to a home away from care
Everywhere´s just a journey away

The days departed
Gardens deserted
This frail world
My only rest ?

The wild calls no more
Wishes so hollow
The Barefoot Boy
Weeping in an empty night

Away...

Cherish the moment
Tower the skies
Don´t let the dreamer
Fade to grey like grass

No falling for life
A gain for every loss
Time gathered me
But kept me flying

"For this gift of dream I must pay the price
With the loss of life´s pleasures"


15. FOREVER YOURS

Fare thee well, little broken heart
Downcast eyes, lifetime loneliness

Whatever walks in my heart will walk alone

Constant longing for the perfect soul
Unwashed scenery forever gone

No love left in me
No eyes to see the heaven beside me
My time is yet to come
So I'll be forever yours
