Track Name: Stories
Stories

Now that you know stories of war
Especially those to which you belong
And now that you heard lyrics of love
Are you ready to go and promise your "No"?

Now you've got your time:
Which one will you tell?
Which tale will you tell?
Which one will you tell?

And friends who will all listen to yours
Will rarely behold what you painfully won
And you can be sure no one will know
There’s no oil and no gold, but flowers of love

Now you’ve got your time,
Now you’ve got your time:
Give me delight as the night goes by
And there’s lingering light in your words
And we shine
Which one will you tell?
Which tale will you tell?
Which one will you tell?
Track Name: Dedication
Dedication

This is for you, girl, for the first time you cried
This is for you, girl, for all the pain you hide
And you’ve been through..

And I can’t control
And I have no control

This is for you, boy, for the first time you lied
Hours were passing by as if you were kissing light
What have you been through?

And I can’t control
And I have no control
Track Name: Jane's Birthday
Jane’s birthday

Optimists opt for light,
So which side you’re fighting for?
Restless, you are never lost
And you’re not even 24.
Everything was fine back then,
We all had more innocence
We even had more hope back then,
Was life better then?
And you’re not even 24.

So superstars are never worth fighting,
Fighting what you’re fighting for.
They suddenly come and suddenly go
So you’re not even 24.
And everything was fine back then,
We all had more innocence,
We even had more hope back then,
Was life better then?
And you’re not even 24.

I say: now, you might feel lonely,
Just don’t worry, a day is gone
I say: now, you might well feel lonely,
Just don’t worry, a day is gone
And when light flows in we are fourteen,
I say light flows in, and we are fourteen.

It’ll shine even more when we’ll be thirty-four,
It’ll shine even more when we’ll be thirty-four,
It’ll shine even more when we’ll be thirty-four,
Forty-four, fifty-four, sixty-four, seventy-four, eighty-four, ninety-four.
Track Name: Worlds Collide
Worlds collide

Our worlds collide:
You can see it as the wind is speeding high.
And our roads collide, too,
Every time the sun is just a pointless red balloon.
Our days collapse,
As idle as the sky, in your summer nights.
Now, I can’t see through your eyes,
But I can well imagine their light, and even their light

And, damn, I don’t wanna get old
Before I take the time to lie
Before I can tame the teeth in your smile
Before I take the time to...

Our worlds collide:
And enemies are changing their face, still losing their fight
And so many cases are filed,
So you can well imagine those lives, without any right.
Does it feel the same for you, does it?
Cause it’s never the same for my, for my limited time
And our wounds now combine,
Because your words are definitely not less painful than mine

And, damn, I don’t wanna get old
Before I take the time to lie
Before I can tame all the teeth in your smile
Before I take the time to fly.
