lyrics be yourself (andreas messmer / robert jackson)

alarm rings on the sideboard
postponing all my dreams
the shower grabs my feet
and drags me to the street
where traffic roars it's melody
and subways scream for more
the faces all around me
forgettiní what they're liviní for

always looking up to others
through all the growiní years
and wishiní for a share
of what money buys up there
almost believiní I could make it
I was acting like a fool
and tryiní to be just like them
I found myself nowhere at all

be yourself, no matter who
no matter what they want from you
no matter how it's on the outside
hold on to the truth that's inside
be yourself, no matter where
no matter what they wannna hear
no matter how they get to cheat you
hold on and they won't defeat you
be yourself

always looking up to others
through all the growiní years
and wishiní for a share
of what money buys up there
almost believiní I could make it
I was acting like a fool
and tryiní to be just like them
I found myself nowhere at all

be yourself, no matter who
no matter what they want from you
no matter how it's on the outside
hold on to the truth that's inside
be yourself, no matter where
no matter what they wannna hear
no matter how they get to cheat you
hold on and they won't defeat you
be yourself

the phone rings on the sideboard
the woman of my dreams
her offer grabs my feet ...

be yourself, no matter who
no matter what they want from you
no matter how it's on the outside
hold on to the truth that's inside
be yourself, no matter where
no matter what they wannna hear
no matter how they get to cheat you
hold on and they won't defeat you
be yourself
be yourself
be yourself

donít care about your t-shirt (andreas messmer / mike turtle)

gotta listen to the same old trash
almost every day
itís getting worse and worse
with all those words you say
donít wannna talk about my music
donít wannna talk about my world
well, you know Iím not alone
you can take a diffírent tone with me

youíre really the one
to help me with my way of life
girl, you must be crazy
dancing on the blade of a knife
Iím not narrow-minded
but Iíve had enough of your stupid face
I know your type
and I hope you vanish in the haze

donít care about your t-shirt
donít know how it can really hurt
no matter what you do or say
I turn around and walk away
and by the way my friend
every dog must have its day
you better move your ass
and get out of my way

youíre really the one
to help me with my way of life
girl, you must be crazy
dancing on the blade of a knife
Iím not narrow-minded
but Iíve had enough of your stupid face
I know your type
and I hope you vanish in the haze

donít care about your t-shirt
donít know how it can really hurt
no matter what you do or say
I turn around and walk away
and by the way my friend
every dog must have its day
you better move your ass
and get out of my way

go away
canít stand it no more
don't want you to stay
youíre nothing but my score
so many times
I told you in vain
now listen to my song again

donít care about your t-shirt
donít know how it can really hurt
no matter what you do or say
I turn around and walk away

donít care about your t-shirt
donít know how it can really hurt
no matter what you do or say
I turn around and walk away
and by the way my friend
every dog must have its day
you better move your ass
and get out of my way

donít care about your t-shirt
donít care about your t-shirt
donít care about your t-shirt
donít care about your t-shirt
donít care about your t-shirt
donít care about your t-shirt

forbidden love (andreas messmer / paul smith)

I turn the key and I walk through that door
Iím home, but Iím lost once again
just aching for your innocent hand
out in the cold cold rain

a picture of you, just serene in the blue
this image is now all that remains
got this dream that I just canít contain
oh Iím younger again

forbidden love, between here and gone
so easy to think I knew
forbidden love, I know itís wrong
but Iím so in love with you

Iím out here drowning in this sea of hope
your lighthouse fading from view
desperate to find, oh that lifeline
thatíll take me to you

forbidden love, between here and gone
So easy to think I knew
forbidden love, I know itís wrong
but Iím so in love with you

your beauty unfolding before me
a vision thatís not just a clichť
spreading your butterfly wings
flying away

flying away ...

marjorie (andreas messmer / robert jackson)

always said it's there inside of me
search my soul, it's hard for me to see
deep inside it's looking kind of dark
down the well, at the bottom of my heart

here I am a-knocking at your door
still believin' like I always did before
others passing seem to find the key
you once said is there inside of me

marjorie, I love you
and you know I do
marjorie, I love you
and you know that itís true

read between the words you had to say
all the signs pointing out the way
everything in it's entirety
screaming out that you were made for me

did my best to paint you with my pen
you just laughed and told me once again
more to you than a dreamer can portray
never heed the words you have to say

marjorie, I love you
and you know I do
marjorie, I still love you
and you know that itís true
yes itís true

here I am knocking at your door
still believin' like I always did before
others passing seem to find the key
you once said is there inside of me

marjorie, I love you
and you know I do
marjorie, I still love you
and you know that itís true

marjorie, I love you
and you know I do
marjorie, I still love you
and you know that itís true
yes itís true
I always will

the fog and the rain (andreas messmer / mike turtle)

the fog and the rain may be here
but it keeps me next to you
what can I do?
and now as I wait by your side
for the passing cloud
something clear and loud
hits my brain
though the years to come may treat us very well
what really happens only time will tell
by your side I will stay ev'ry day
and the nighttime too
keeps me next to you
what can I do?

through the wind and the storm, keep me warm
right here next to me
where I want to be
ev'ry day, come what may, you and me
through eternity
it was meant to be this way
time may change the way we are both good and bad
through it all you know I can't be sad
by your side I will stay, ev'ry day
and the nighttime too
keeps me next to you
what can I do?

the stars and the moon and the milky way
won't come out tonight
but that's alright
and if I died in your arms, don't be sad
just be very glad
for the times we had
though sometimes I feel I'm just some lost and found
I will stand with my feet on the ground
by your side I will stay, ev'ry day
and the nighttime too
keeps me next to you
what can I do?

and the nighttime too
keeps me next to you
what can I do?
and the nighttime too
keeps me next to you
what can I do?
and the nighttime too
keeps me next to you
what can I do?

(your getting) way too close (andreas messmer / robert jackson)

I love to see you evíry day
itís soothing me in every way
youíre helping me erase the ďwhyĒ
but it doesnít mean that Iím going to lie, lie

Iím still not standing on my feet
canít get to grips with her deceit
Iíve come quite far since youíre here
but please donít call this your revere

youíre getting way too close
I just hope you understand
youíre coming far too close
itís getting out of hand
you wanna fill that space
wanna help me to forget
you aim to take her place
but Iím not ready yet

Iíve learned that nothingís here to stay
and the earth keeps turning anyway
it doesnít show one bit of shame
and I wish that I could be the same again

time can heal wounds they say
I would recover anyway
my heartís done fightin' itís way free
thereís only room in here for me, for me

but youíre getting way too close
I just hope you understand
youíre coming far too close
itís getting out of hand
you wanna fill that space
wanna help me to forget
you aim to take her place
but Iím not ready yet

you always say youíre still hurting a lot
itís only vapour
Iím really all that you need
you tell me maybe later
you always say youíre still hurting a lot
itís only vapour
Iím really all that you need
you tell me maybe later

if itís not right, then not for what
I soothe your pain and heal the cut
but if your pride is not restored
then when it is will you get bored with me?

youíre getting way too close

youíre getting way too close
I just hope you understand
youíre coming far too close
itís getting out of hand
you wanna fill that space
wanna help me to forget
you aim to take her place
but Iím not ready yet

youíre getting way too close
oh - oh
youíre coming far too close
oh - oh
you wanna fill that space
wanna help me to forget
you aim to take her place
but Iím not ready yet

you won't get my number (andreas messmer / robert jackson)

whatever you say
it gets in the way
wherever you go
you go with the flow
I'm trying to avoid
whenever you call
youíll talk to a wall
whatever you want
believe me you can't
you're trying in vain
you leave me in pain and annoyed

if ever you fall
go losing it all
Iíll never be there
Iím making it clear
thereís nothing for you
if ever you try
no truth nor a lie
if ever you feel
you need me for real
Iíll never give in
youíll end in a spin feeling blue

you wonít get my number
I threw out the phone
you canít get in touch
you better leave me alone

whenever Iím low
you donít want to know
whenever Iím down
youíre never around
donít seem to be in
whenever I sigh
youíre flying too high
whenever I cry
youíre passing me by
Iím trying in vain
you donít see the pain that Iím in

you wonít get my number
I threw out the phone
you canít get in touch
you better leave me alone
you'll never know the future
I had in mind
you've lost my love
and it was one of a kind

you wonít get my number
I threw out the phone
you canít get in touch
you better leave me alone
you'll never know the future
I had in mind
you've lost my love
and it was one of a kind

you won't steal my dreams (andreas messmer / robert jackson)

it's cold outside
in the dead of the night
Iím on my way
hours before
the dawn of the day
the road Iím on
sometimes seems much too long
but Iíll follow the sun
till my days are done
guitar in my hand
my only true friend
knowin' there are only a few
who understand

too many times
I let the chances go by
was I too young
was I too blind
or simply too shy?
but I paid my dues
went down with the blues
getting back on my feet
caught up in the beat
guitar screaming pain
or singiní in the rain
knowin' there are only a few
who understand

you can take all of my money
and you can call me whatever you like
tell me that Iím not that stunning
or just claim that Iím out of my psych
the tune in my head goes on running
even when it gets to extremes
you can steal my sleep
but you wonít never steal my dreams

it's cold outside
's been another long night
hitting the hay
just before the dawn of the day
often alone
they never hold on for long
nights full of song
the road draggin' on
guitar in my hand
my only true friend
knowin' there are only a few
who understand

you can take all of my money
and you can call me whatever you like
tell me that Iím not that stunning
or just claim that Iím out of my psych
the tune in my head goes on running
even when it gets to extremes
you can steal my sleep
but you wonít never steal my dreams

you can take all of my money
and you can call me whatever you like
tell me that Iím not that stunning
or just claim that Iím out of my psych
the tune in my head goes on running
even when it gets to extremes
you can steal my sleep
you can steal my sleep
you can steal my sleep
but you wonít never steal my dreams
