40 days to go (©The Tunez, Mai 2004)

She’s packing up her suitcase
with dear and useful things
she’s ready for the journey
and starts to spread her wings

A packet full of memories
the sound of distant trains
a cool refreshing seaside breeze
a summer day of rain

I can’t wait, I just want to know, I just want to know
let me feel , let me see a different show
only 40 days to go

She’ s packing up her suitcase
with dear and useful things
she’s ready for the journey
to see what future brings

Her very secret dairy
with thoughts that she won’t tell
and messages and phonecalls
of friends that wished her well
I can’t wait….

No more cold nights, wasted hours,
no more waiting, motionless like stones
that tumble, left in ruins, trapped in cages
waiting there alone
I can’t wait……

Now she’ packed her suitcase,
with all her favourite things
she’s full of expectations,
let’s see what future brings

Fireworks in evening skies
a pocket full of light
another sunny day to rise
she knows she will be right
I can’t wait…

No more cold nights, wasted hours,
no more waiting, motionless like stones
that tumble, left in ruins,
No more cold nights, wasted hours,
no more waiting, motionless like stones
that tumble, left in ruins,
…absolutely 40 days to go.

Ascending (©The Tunez, April 2005)

In the dark, the endless night , no spark
the endless quest for light, for hidden treasures
lost my way, in deepest caves I stay
until the brightest day, until the sunshine…
…. comes, through
sunshine, where are you?

Suddenly, fate broke the chains , was free
creating powers took me on a journey
energy, so pure, flows endlessly,
a trip towards the stars, to see what we both…
(the power of)
…..can do
we two, me and you

Beyond all measure (©The Tunez, Juni 2004)

The ten past ten was late
I’m finally on my way
would make the hours fly
to meet him at the gate

There is my window seat
the gleaming town lights fade
and in the moonlight shine
a sea of silvery wheat

Wheat , the colours of his hair
I’ m longing to be there
in comfort and in pleasure
in love beyond all measure

So many trips I’ ve made
and they seemed all the same
we could go anywhere
and never be afraid

My eyes, they try to see
the far and distant hills
and as the scenery blurs
the warm air covers me

Air, the softness of his hands
will surely make amends
in comfort and in pleasure
in love beyond all measure

Sleep Interlude

I hear the creaking sound
of the compartment door
I guess, I fell asleep
for hours , maybe more

And as I turn my head
to look into the night
I see a thousand lights
a-waiting me so bright

Bright, the sparkle of his eyes
oh, how my feelings rise
in comfort and in pleasure
in love beyond all measure

A Bunch of Dried Roses (©The Tunez, Mai 2005)

Watching how the car is disappearing in the mist
holding back my soul, my life within my trembling fist
outside is my flowerbed, it’s wilted and it’s dead
it bloomed and grew, was wonderful, before I turned my head

Don’t know the time, my clock has stopped, don’t know what’s going on
and on the floor, a glass you dropped, so quickly you had gone
you took with you my hopes and joys, my coat and all the light
I am a stranger in my house, I’m crying through the night

All that’s left is a bunch of dried roses,
All that’s left is a bunch of dried roses
All that’s left is a bunch of dried roses
All that’s left is a bunch of dried roses

A distant noise is waking me, what is it ? I can’t tell.
could be your car , you’re coming back, I know the sound so well
my heart beats faster that that sound until I have to see
it’s just the shutters and the door, the wind is fooling me

The light so dim, the night so black, but still it seems to me
a fragile, tiny shade of red is on that bunch to see
I grab the flowers, take my cap, and outside your front door
I’ ll plant them there to make them grow and bloom for evermore.

All…..

A bunch of blooming roses, a bunch of blooming roses
all that’s left is a bunch of blooming roses, left is a bunch
of blooming roses

Everything is true (©The TUNEZ Sep.2004)

It’s unbelievable, not to comprehend,
have you read the latest news?
I stood there petrified, with the paper in my hand
that’s something I can’t understand
Just because of Jupiter, I’ll be getting rich next week
just because of Uranus, I will fall in love
mankind like the dinosaurs, will one day surely disappear
for further details see page 5, they’ll explain it here

It’s unbelievable, it’s weird , oh dear
have you heard the latest news?
I heard it on the radio, I heard it loud and clear
it’s still ringing in my ear

Head-on crash on motorway, rescue teams they came too late
weekend weather will be fine, let’s party at the beach
bomb attack in Market Street, children kept as hostages
phone the hotline for our quiz and win a soft drink each

It’s unbelievable, I’m telling you
have you seen the latest news?
have never seen a thing like this, on a satellite review
but everything is true

Saw it on the evening news, creatures came from outer space
landed in a swimming pool, without getting wet
government have set it up, from now on they will work for free
introducing pork chop tax, on that they do agree

It’s unbelievable, I’m telling you
have you seen the latest news?
have never seen a thing like this, on a satellite review
but everything is true

everything is true
everything is true
everything is true
everything is true

Five Step Walk (©The Tunez, Mai 2004)

Get up, get a move on
come on, put your shoes on
couch potatoes, shake your bones
get up, get a move on
come on, put your shoes on
now let’s do the Five Step Walk

In his damp, dark attic
there sits Howard, oh, oh, oh
and his life’s pathetic
he’s a coward, he won’t go..

to join the people, join the fun and all the laughter
now it’s time for you, this will see you through

Get up, get a move on
come on, put your shoes on
couch potatoes, shake your bones
get up, get a move on
come on, put your shoes on
now let’s do the Five Step Walk

Deidre in her office
she is wasting all her days
she’s not interfering
she lets others have their ways

Deidre don’ t you hear me, can’ t you feel the life that’s all around
now it’s time for you, this will see you through

Get up,……

Spencer’ s counting fruit tins
all day long from nine to five
master of the shelves,
to earn the money for his life

Spencer’s no romancer, has no eyes for beauty and for grace
you must change your ways, step out of your maze

Get up,….

Fly my red balloon (©The Tunez, März 2001)

Seaside , funfair, it seems like ages
A summer day back in June
Me and mummy down at the seafront
Buskers were playing their tune

Look there, mummy, please won´t you buy me
Please, can I have that balloon
So fantastic, bright, red and shiny
Has got a face like the moon

Fly my little red balloon
Fly where I´ll be going soon
Through the clouds up in the blue
Please take me with you

Then I got it, everyone told me
To hold on strong , not let go
If I lost it, there´d be no other
That was all that I did know

Fly my little…..

Should I keep it, ´cause it´s so precious
„Be a good girl !“, said my mind
„Break the chains for the last freedom !“,
whispered my heart from behind- so

Fly my little…..

Seize the day (©The Tunez, Okt. 2003)

Out in the fields, the children lay
and they set out to seize the day
no fortune told, no parents in their way
no words of old , to seize the day

Out in the moors, the soldiers lay
one thing in mind, not to obey
they left their guns and enemies behind
they beat their drums, a better world to find

Out in the woods, when daybreak came
the restless tried to seek their aim
with unease hearts, their footprints in the mud
they listened to the rhythm of their blood

Out in the streets, the hopeless crowd
have lost their voice, to cry out loud
their path is marked and no one steps aside
beyond the wall the earth is open wide,
the earth is open wide

Two Bridges (©The Tunez, Okt. 2003)

In the valley, in the morning dew
in the morning dew, meet me there
there’s a story that the river tells
and its words they sound everywhere

It’s a tale of peace, quiet melodies
you can listen to with your heart
there’s an ancient myth, drifting through the times
the essential verses and rhymes

In the valley, in the midnight sun
in the midnight sun, meet me there
lonely shadows, lonely shadows fade
feel the tension that’s in the air

It’s a tale of peace,……

Two bridges, two bridges,…..

In the valley, in the morning dew
in the morning dew, meet me there
there’s a story that the river tells
and its words they sound everywhere

It’s a tale of peace, …..

Water and desire (©The Tunez, Nov. 2002)

I awoke at dawn, thrown upon a rock
like the skeleton of a battle ship
I awoke at dawn, thrown upon a rock
choked in its own sails

Loving without knowingness
moving without effort
in the soft current of
water and desire, water and desire
water and desire, water and desire, water and desire
moving in an ecstasy of dissolution

I survived the storm, taken by the fear
like a castaway, naked in the sand
I survived the storm, taken by the fear
left alone out here

Loving without…..

I give up the fight, waiting for the tide
to drag me out to sea, where I long to be
I give up the fight, surrender to the night
drowning in dark waves

Loving without…..

On the Cliff © by "The Tunez" 2001

A lonely day, out on the cliff
Lie in the grass, watching
The waves and clouds are in my eyes
And sails on the horizon
Remembering the times before
We were so close together
Whoever thought we needed more
And share it all together

A lonely day, out on the cliff
The lighthouse leads the sailor
But here I am and who leads me
My heart to the horizon

Remembering the times before
We were so close together
Whoever thought we needed more
And share it all together

Lonesome, hanging around, deep blue waters
Just on my own, passing the time, oh, wild and deep blue waters

Gentle Smoke © by "The Tunez" 2001

Shades of red, scented air
Candlelight, noone there
Lose the burden of life
Gold and brown, fireside
Amber and mind open wide

Feel it, breathe it, gentle smoke

A day in town as busy as can be
Too much noise and hustle chasing me
Inside of me, there´s a place to stay
My gentle hideaway

Drifting clouds, blend the night
Slumber comes, no more fight

Feel it, breathe it, gentle smoke
A day in town as busy as can be
Too much noise and hustle chasing me
Inside of me, there´s a place to stay
My gentle hideaway

Feel it, breathe it, feel it, breathe it
Feel it, breathe it, gentle smoke

The Loving Enemy © by "The Tunez" 2001
I got a loving enemy
I got a hated friend
I got a happy tragedy
And mails that weren´t sent

My happy fears, my angry tears
My nights awake, a choice to make

I got a dark sad sun
Within a steel-blue sky
There is no way to go
How hard I even try

No changes done, for life´s an art
I am the one who breaks my heart

I have got mirrors blind
I got no path to find
For love is a two-face
Escaping from embrace

I got a loving enemy
I got a hated friend
I got a happy tragedy
And mails that weren´t sent

My happy fears, my angry tears
My nights awake, a choice to make

I got a dark sad sun
Within a steel-blue sky
There is no way to go
How hard I even try

No changes done, for life´s an art
I am the one who breaks my heart

I have got mirrors blind
I got no path to find
For love is a two-face
Escaping from embrace
