LYRICS
 
 
Album: Fine Today
 
 
Agathi Bay
 
Iíd like to go South
Iíd like to go South
To rest my hurried mind
 
Iíd like to go down
Iíd like to go down
To a place, one of a kind
 
If I had a soul it would ever stay
On the perfect beach of Agathi Bay
 
The mountains look down
The sun is their crown
Covering sand and trees
 
The water is warm
The water is calm
Touched by a summer breeze
 
If I had a soul it would ever stay
On the perfect beach of Agathi Bay
 
Iíll play my songs
Iíll play my songs
In the hills round the Bay
 
They fade away
They fade away
Through the sand of the Bay
 
If I had a soul it would ever stay
On the perfect beach of Agathi Bay
 
If I had a soul it would ever stay
On the perfect beach of Agathi Bay
 
 
Epitaph
 
Hereís for the living
Hereís for the dead
Donít think there is a reason
It can make you bitter sad
 
Thereís is no point in seeking
There is no point in finding too
Only love can help us
To ease the pain, getting through
 
We all wait and wait to face
Eternal silence of the days
While itís all a play we play
Leaving traces that will fade
 
Thereís is no point in seeking
There is no point in finding too
Only love can help us
To ease the pain, getting through
 
 
Fine Today
  
Gulls drown out the sound of the sea
But the wailing is no bother to me
Crickets do their harshly tune
Under protection of the brown-green dunes
 
And Iím fine today
Feel impressed in a way
For thereís nothing to say
This perfection will stay
 
Mountain shadow is moving way up
Capturing houses, trees and rocks
Butterflies just dance around
On the rhythm of an unheard sound
 
And Iím fine today
Feel impressed in a way
For thereís nothing to say
This perfection will stay
 
Close your eyes and listen to the sound
Of all creations gathered around
Still existing when we passed away
And time does not exist anyway
 
And Iím fine today
Feel impressed in a way
For thereís nothing to say
This perfection will stay
 
 
First And Last Blues
 
I heard this really
Sounds like the blues
I heard this really
Sounds like the blues
But I really
Canít play
And the words
Stay away
First and last blues
 
Tapped my foot
And this school of fish
Tapped my foot
And this school of fish
Came swimming
Right To me
Way back
In the sea
First and last blues
 
Play the guitar
For a long time now
Play the guitar
For a long time now
But the blues
Is mystery
And this blues
Is history
First and last blues
 
 
Road To Arkassa
  
Four-hour flight but itís worth it
Former airport of the army USA
Cab drivers will be disappointed
When you drive your rental car away
 
Just one road around the mountains
The choice is only East or West
That for me is an easy question
Found the answer to my queste
 
I'm on the road to Arkassa
Western pearl on the shore
One day I'll end up in Arkassa
Nothing else furthermore
 
The isle up North is more unknown
From the hills the sea looks startled
Cliffs are steep, the roads linger
Road signs small and sometimes garbled
 
I'm on the road to Arkassa
Western pearl on the shore
One day I'll end up in Arkassa
Nothing else furthermore
 
I'm on the road to Arkassa
Western pearl on the shore
One day I'll end up in Arkassa
Nothing else furthermore
 
 
Tears Lost In Rain
 
I lead the raid to a scary ark
That sails at night in the deepest dark
To drowning islands left alone
Forsaken houses and empty thrones
 
I am the keeper, the last man standing well
One touch of me will end abusive spells
If I am not there the force of things
Canít be controlled by a bunch of rings
 
I am a dream lost within
A smile, captured in a grin
Suppressing all the pain
Fighting tears lost in rain
 
Who we are is really hard to say
For we change all throughout the way
Inside us there is a cave so deep
Where our main image creeps
 
I am a dream lost within
A smile, captured in a grin
Suppressing all the pain
Fighting tears lost in rain
 
I am a dream lost within
A smile, captured in a grin
Suppressing all the pain
Fighting tears lost in rain
 
 
When The Wind Stills
  
When the wind stills
The sails go down
When the wind stills
The sails go down
When the wind stills
My heading is unbound
 
When the sun shines
No work to be done
When the sun shines
No work to be done
When the sun shines
Until the moon comes along
 
When the wind stills
The desert comes at ease
When the wind stills
The desert comes at ease
When the wind stills
We long for a little breeze
 
When the sun shines
The sea perfect blue
When the sun shines
The sea perfect blue
When the sun shines
My mind it sails to you
 
 
Winter End
 
Who can tell when this winter will end
Light hides behind a fence
Of broken dreams and shattered years
Yet to come, built on fears
 
The ground frozen on every step
Reminiscing filled with gaps
Time is never on our side
It builds, it breaks, will abide
 
Whatís the use of being strong
When every day hope proves wrong
Whatís the use of being tough
When you canít heal with love
 
Hope is religion and not for real
Learn there is no steering wheel
That will help to control our life
Itís just luck when all years thrive
 
Whatís the use of being strong
When every day hope proves wrong
Whatís the use of being tough
When you canít heal with love
 
 
Album: 12-String Guitar Music
 
Cold Wind Blowing 
 
Feel the cold wind blowing
Through the broken lanes of times
To wait for life to open
Means waiting for a lie
 
But whatís the use of trying
When fears are grasping for
Every inch of soul space
Watching your back door
 
The days are getting shorter
And there are less to keep
My skin is slowly aging
And dreams will go asleep
 
All the things to fight for
Are priceless as they are
Thereís no use in running away
For it wonít bring you far
 
 
Man From Ephesus
 
I see a mountain that blocks the clouds
The wind is raging but it fails
Thereís some rain about to fall down
And somehow I feel out of scale
 
I donít know where I come from
Donít know what Iím heading for
There nothing but the moment right now
End of roads up to heretofore
 
Man from Ephesus, you were right, I think
Ta panta rhei, my guiding light
One canít step into the same river twice
I feel like a shadow in the night
 
I donít know where I come from
Donít know what Iím heading for
There nothing but the moment right now
End of roads up to heretofore
 
Down a valley that yields for water
While the hot sun gives no blink
Though the olive trees donít seem to bother
Itís just the universe that sings
 
I donít know where I come from
Donít know what Iím heading for
There nothing but the moment right now
End of roads up to heretofore
 
I donít know where I come from
Donít know what Iím heading for
There nothing but the moment right now
End of roads up to heretofore
 
 
Mayday
 
Mayday, mayday
All hands on deck itís mayday
Showdown, defend the crown
Remember all the folks in town
 
I heard the General, he is dying
Whoís the one to be in charge
Donít look at me, Iím no leader
Donít be fooled by my stars
Itís mayday, mayday, mayday, mayday
 
Whine time, shine in line
Donít be afraid, all will be fine
Hold your guts itís all you got
Itís you and me and your God
 
I canít tell we will win though
Maybe now but once weíll fail
But itís the only way they said so
Hold your backs straight and weíll sail
Itís mayday, mayday, mayday, mayday
 
 
Sliding Moon
 
A grin on the sliding moon
Autumn will be here soon
Fog instead of rain
For the thirsty grain
 
 
Music wonít let me down
It finds my way around
The answer is to be found
On 12-string ground
 
Strangers, weíll always be
All the ones I see
But you my are my eyes
As I sail the seas
 
A grin on the sliding moon
Autumn will be here soon
Fog instead of rain
For the thirsty grain
 
 
Album: Hidden
 
 
All Iíll Know
 
The rainy storm hits the harbour
And keeps the airplanes on the ground
I play cards with the unfamiliar
Whatís the name of this town ?
 
The wine is drawing pictures
Of the ones Iíve left behind
To prove the things that need no proof
Loving you is all Iíll find
 
Lightning hits like photographs
That show the very ancient days
Thunder rolls away the fears
And time still is on its way
 
This place is getting crowded
So Iíll I take up my guitar and go
To the memories that really count
Loving you is all I know
 
Saddle up the Palomino
Raise the flags and free the runway
Pack my fading recollection
But leave the slides of nowadays
 
The wine is drawing pictures
Of the ones Iíve left behind
To prove the things that need no proof
Loving you is all Iíll find
 
The wine is drawing pictures
Of the ones Iíve left behind
To prove the things that need no proof
Loving you is all Iíll find
 
 
Breathe
 
I canít breathe where you canít follow
Just canít drive the road I see
Stop my mind, thoughts turn hollow
There is time and there is me
 
Show me where my soul has gone to
Teach me where the anger bends
Lead me blinded through the pages
But touch me gently in the end
 
Blend my wishes with the ocean
They rule my life, causing waves
Seeking for a way of living
But Iíll remember what you gave
 
I can breathe where you can follow
And will find a way to use
All the scars that made me hollow
For I have paid my lifetime dues
 
 
Evening Train
 
Wonder how many hours
Before the midnight train arrives
Heading for the black horizon
Home for the ended lives
 
I say, thereís nothing more
When the final whistle blows
Tell me whatís the life you led my friend
And how many days to go ?
How many days to go ?
 
Morning train slowly finds its way
All new colours to be seen
Schools and  books and love is life
Before your suit is turned to green
 
I say, thereís nothing more
When the final whistle blows
Tell me whatís the life you led my friend
And how many days to go ?
How many days to go ?
 
Midday train donít drive that fast
I was meant for the moment now
Open up your wagon doors
I must be honest to my vow
 
I say, thereís nothing more
When the final whistle blows
Tell me whatís the life you led my friend
And how many days to go ?
How many days to go ?
 
Evening train I feel tired
All the words are giving in
And my guitars get heavier
How many songs left to sing ?
 
I say, thereís nothing more
When the final whistle blows
Tell me whatís the life you led my friend
And how many days to go ?
How many days to go ?
 
  
Just To Watch Her Smile
 
Talk to my angel
Itís a fallen one you know
Heís knocking on my window pane
Ask him where to go
 
Though I know heís always tired
Heís been guiding quite a while
I love my womanís smile
 
An island to sail to
In the Sargasso Sea
Though everyone gets lost there
I will never be
 
I prefer the silence
It guides me quite a while
But not above her smile
 
Fly above the river
Mountains in the snow
Follow the horizon
Itís a endless way to go
 
Iím sure that my angel
Will fly another mile
Just to watch her smile
 
 
Morning Rain
 
Iím a puppet on a string
Through daily routine
Whatever the day may bring
I am displaced in the scene
 
Morning rain, oh morning rain
Cry your tears of sorrow
Morning rain, oh morning rain
Guide me through tomorrow
 
Trading places is no option
I know myself so damned well
To leave this world is no option
So many reasons swell
 
Morning rain, oh morning rain
Cry your tears of sorrow
Morning rain, oh morning rain
Guide me through tomorrow
 
I know how the world turns
Money rules and burns your mind
There is nothing really left to learn
But to follow my heart sometimes
 
Morning rain, oh morning rain
Cry your tears of sorrow
Morning rain, oh morning rain
Guide me through tomorrow
 
 
Roads
 
Ride with me on roads so erratic
Talk to me but I wonít talk back
On the run for fate comes nearer
Donít ask about the places we left
 
Hurry stranger itís a one-chapter book
No headings and pages turn loose
Read the gambler with no cards in his hand
Who calls your bet and raises his land
Whatís the final result in the end
 
Not every rebel needs a revolution
Nor do all loners have no heart
Please compile your own constitution
But I wonít be a part of your war
 
Hurry stranger itís a one-chapter book
No headings and pages turn loose
Read the gambler with no cards in his hand
Who calls your bet and raises his land
Whatís the final result in the end
 
Walked the highway on a daily basis
It opened up my eyes to see
Nature is the true thing given
It killed the rush that life used to be
 
Hurry stranger itís a one-chapter book
No headings and pages turn loose
Read the gambler with no cards in his hand
Who calls your bet and raises his land
Whatís the final result in the end ?
Whatís the final result in the end ?
Whatís the final road in the end ?
 
 
September Light
 
September light
On a late summer night
The cracking of the evening dawn
When colours melt like the sun
For the evening light
 
September light
September night
All whatís left is black and white
All but the sky, shining bright
For the evening light
 
September light
Late summer night
Seagulls fly, the passer-by, listening
We sense the earth whispering
Through the evening light
 
September light
September night
Your palette makes it worth a while
To come again and dream a smile
On this evening light
 
September light
Late summer night
Before the night is falling in
After the day, the stirring grin
Of the evening light
 
 
To Build Today
 
Tell me what is nothing
What is nothing tonight
Tell me what is everything
What makes everything right
What blows away the fears
What is the use to wait
To build today
 
There are no sorries
And no goodbyes
Only worries and times
That shine
Memories in the shade
Recollect times that fade
To build today
 
Slide away the screens
Of independence
Beware of the God
In your heart
But do hesitate and wait
For there's a price to pay
To build today
 
 
To Me
 
I feel the omens
Gathering around
While the wind is roaring
And hammers down
 
Grey, screaming ravens
Fall out of the sky
They hop from stone to stone
I donít care why
 
Who baby, who baby
Keeps me from falling
Through the mirror of broken dreams
Who baby, who baby
Keeps me covered
When age will find its way,
To me
 
I donít really need
A lot of friends
Itís all enough for me
To fill a band
 
Where ever I lay my hat
Itís not my home
Home ground, Iíll be around
Itís decided, I will not grow
 
Who baby, who baby
Keeps me from falling
Through the mirror of broken dreams
Who baby, who baby
Keeps me covered
When age will find its way,
To me
 
Who baby, who baby
Keeps me from falling
Through the mirror of broken dreams
Who baby, who baby
Keeps me covered
When age will find its way,
To me
 
 
Album: Guardian Of Time
 
 
Fighter
 
Sand fighter
Donít look back
Time fighter
Your ship is wrecked
Tell me whatís your trail now
Tell me whatís your role
Ainít it nothing but a tale now
The process bought your soul
 
Sand fighter
Donít look back
Time fighter
Your ship is wrecked
Thereís nothing more than this scene
Seconds flow like a  lava-stream
Crawling on the volcanoís greed
Leaves you in a one-way street
Sand fighter
Time fighter
 
Sand fighter
Donít look back
Time fighter
Your ship is wrecked
The house you built seems broken down
The suit you bought is torn
Your hometown canít be found
Your friends were never born
Sand fighter
Time fighter
 
 
Hold Me
 
There's a fence round the park
Guardian of time
Where the clocks stop ticking
Where nature's in rhyme
The long tall trees
Arenít falling down
A path it carries you
Along the ground
 
And I think
Hold me
To hold  you
In the middle of
The end of the road
 
The gates never close
At the right time
Nothing to keep in
But memories fine
I watch your face
It's bothered with time
I hold your hand
Or does it hold mine ?
 
And I say
Hold me
To hold you
In the middle of
The end of the road
 
There's a fence round the park
Guardian of time
 
 
Hold Your Horses
 
Who has stopped the world
From turning around
Whereís the sunny side of town
In my suburban mind
 
Hold your horses
Or let them all go
I speak in morse-code
From the canyons below
 
I know that times will change
No doubt about that
Itís just this lasting rain
Which makes my eyes so wet
 
It ainít you baby
It even ainít me
This load will fall down, like
Leaves from a tree
 
I need some fading time
Put things together
It will all turn out fine
Some parts will get together
 
Hold your horses
Or let them all go
Speaking in morse-code
From the world below
 
 
Leftover Days
 
Though there ainít nothing left
But uncertain footsteps
And once in a while
A sad conscience
Iíd concrete the sea
To finish my youth
To conquer my fears
To plant my roots
 
Time stands still
Youth passes through
Give me leftover days
With some friends I knew
Iíd melt away mountains
Feeling certain for sure
Dealing the cards
As a preventive cure
 
Though there ainít nothing left
But vague flashes
Just shadows on the wall
Where minds burn to ashes
Iíd concrete the sea
For some leftover days
Iíd melt away mountains
Please show me the ways
 
 
Long Lost Vow
 
I hear them coming near, girl
See their machinery
I fear we lost our land, boy
Grey replacing green
 
Let us think
Though my mind is foggy now
Letís gather, and
Remember our long lost vow
 
Tell Joey to get the guns, John
Mary, bring the children in
Peter, call the neighbours
Iíve no doubt weíll win
 
Let me see
My mind feels clearer now
Too tired to run
This coast is the final stop for us
 
They will pollute the horizon
The roads will spit out cars
What happened with our cornfields
Will happen to our yards
 
Letís act, before
The fire is getting low
Letís gather, and
Remember our long lost vow
 
 
Old Mrs. V.
 
Old Mrs. V.
Troops the balcony
Stands for hours, building towers
To what we couldnít see
 
Old Mrs. V.
Really frightened me
Tempting the cold, a ten-year-old
Who peeped in agony
 
Beam her up
Beam her down
She thought she wouldnít die
By gazing at the sky
 
About Mr. V.
Dying we could see
At first we really tried to help
That is my folks not me
 
Old Mrs. V.
The interest slipped you see
The honesty came suddenly
Dad smiled, mom did flee
 
Beam her up
Beam her down
She thought she wouldnít die
By gazing at the sky
 
Old Mrs. V.
No longer scaring me
Her antique dead-nettle
Saved my biology
 
Old Mrs. V.
Did I ever thank thee ?
For this old tin soldier set
Though I wished it was complete
 
Beam her up
Beam her down
She thought she wouldnít die
By gazing at the sky
 
 
Probably Think Itís All New
 
Along the tracks
Near the road
I search my mind
And check my load
 
I wonder what
It is I miss
While I can feel
My memory slip
 
And youíll probably think itís all new
You too will find thereís no clue
 
Stand in the middle
Of times about to change
But can I ever
Unlock these chains
 
Itís deceiving
To meet with fate
While its existence
Will never wait
 
And youíll probably think itís all new
You too will find thereís no clue
 
Along the tracks
Near the road
I search my mind
And check my load
 
I wonder what
It is I miss
While I can feel
My memory slip
 
And youíll probably think itís all new
You too will find thereís no clue
 
 
Sister Domino
 
We talk about the pros and cons all day long
And aim for a goal far beyond this song
We enter into bonds to build up the ladder
Led by a siren called
 
Sister, sister domino
She helps the rumour-fields to grow
The information winds to blow
Whispers what there is to know
Uses all there is to use
Wins what you have to lose
 
Never interfere, itís not your game nor plan
We know that each and every river will bend
Feeding the stream with twigs and branches
Led by a siren called
 
Sister, sister domino
She helps the rumour-fields to grow
The information winds to blow
Whispers what there is to know
Uses all there is to use
Wins what you have to lose
 
Sister, sister dominoÖ (repeat)
 
 
Southern Winds
 
Let me flow on the southern winds
Laid back, easy, with the sun on my skin
Landing on sand, it feels fine
A setting sun and a bottle of wine
In this hall of life
I need no fame
You may sing my songs, forget my name
 
Go on brother you will succeed
For me success is no need
Although Iím doing quite alright
It feels wrong like the northern lights
You may question me
But you wonít understand
Maybe someday youíll know what I meant
 
My woman around and a few guitars
Money coming in from playing bars
Wrinkles in my face telling me time
One day I will cross the line
In this hall of life
I need no fame
You can sing my songs, forget my name
 
Let me flow on the southern winds
Laid back, easy, with the sun on my skin
Although my thoughts are precious time
I still walk the same old line
You may question me
But you wonít understand
Maybe someday youíll know what I meant
 
 
Sunlight Overture
 
Itís a sunlight overture
Shining light to see
It makes the gulfs reflect the sky
Bringing numbness to me
 
Itís a sunlight overture
Lasting waves to come
In between the water and sand
I feel no right or wrong
 
Itís a sunlight overture
Fading light to see
Winds arise and arouse
Ending a day for me
 
 
Willow Tree Bar
 
Thereís this man in the corner
Gazing at the women coming in
I know what he is struggling for
Going easy on the gin
 
Thereís a girl not looking
She seems not really aware
Of all the men dreaming of
Making love to her
 
A guitar-player singing
I think I like the tune
But from where I stand
Words canít arrive soon
 
Weíve got something here in common
Floating above our heads
But it wonít stay a minute
The moment we have left
