Track Name: merry-go-round
up and down and round and round
in and out and children will shout
out with glee sit on a bee
sit on a fox that slowly rocks
I sit on the floor can't take it no more

the world is spinning round and round
turning me upside down
i reach for the sky and fall on the ground
the question is why and look what I found
the answer is simple it's a merry go round

merry go round I feel let down
merry go round that's the answer I found
merry go round
I pull a string to change thing
I push and shove and turn on the wing
only to find I've changed my mind
the world has moved and left me behind
I grab for a hold and find I'm clutching a string

merry go round I feel let down
merry go round that's the answer I found
merry go round
Track Name: haunted
no 1 was a real good friend
I guess it wasn't meant to be in the end
but when she kissed me on a train to Rome
We bumped our noses and the moment was gone

no 2 was out of reach for me
smart and pretty as can be
once at the beach I oiled her back
from her feet up to her neck

I feel haunted by the missed opportunities
I feel haunted by the missed opportunities

no 3 claimed to be a singer
I played in a band and so I'd bring her
but at the mic her lips were shut up tight
I took her home but she left me outside

4 smiled at me and I was hers
then she took another guy upstairs
the idiot dumped her - what a shame
I looked all summer long for her in vain

I feel haunted by the missed opportunities
I feel haunted by the missed opportunities

sometimes your life will go off on a tangent
the missed opportunities will take revenge and
I found that if you don't act
all you find will be regrets

no 5 was broken hearted
she came to me to be comforted
perhaps I should have been insisting
but I'm a nice guy so I kept resisting

no 6 was at a gig
she got snuggly and I was a prick
when later on I called her
all she showed me was her ice cold shoulder

I feel haunted by the missed opportunities
I feel haunted by the missed opportunities

well there were others I will not mention
I always acted with good intentions
but when the moment comes you gotta grab it
a second chance? you might not get it

I feel haunted by the missed opportunities
I feel haunted by the missed opportunities
I feel haunted by the missed opportunities
I feel haunted by the missed opportunities
Track Name: neither nor
I neither claim that I don't love you
nor do I say that I depend on you
you know you mean a lot to me
but I can't read my feelings easily

if I tell you that I love you
I run the risk to lose you
so I hope you'll help me find a way
and if we go on as before
I might wanna have more
but I wouldn't dare to say

I neither claim that I don't love you
nor do I say that I depend on you
you know you mean a lot to me
but I can't read my feelings easily

so I'll wait for you to decide
what to do, if you feel the same
if you wanna play the game with me

I neither claim that I don't love you
nor do I say that I depend on you
you know you mean a lot to me
but I can't read my feelings easily


I neither claim that I don't love you
nor do I say that I depend on you
you know you mean a lot to me
but I can't read my feelings easily

I'm neither sure that you don't love me
nor do I fear that you're not fond of me
I hope I mean a lot to you
but I don't know if that is really true

you neither act as if you do love me
nor do I suspect that you depend on me
you know our friendship means a lot to me
but speaking out might ruin it easily

I'll neither push you to be dating me
nor can I deny that you are tempting me
either way with you will be just fine
as long as someday I can call you mine

and so I'll wait for you to decide
Track Name: my life
sometimes my life fees like a swimming pool
on a dry hot summer day
sometimes my life feels like an icy lake
in a hidden forest vale

what will I do? who will I meet?
what should I buy? where will I eat?

sometimes my life feels like I'm dragging my feet
on a long and winding road
sometimes my life feels like a tower
behind castle walls and moat

when will it end? where should I flee?
what is the point? who should I be?

and then I rise up to the sky
my golden wings spread out and fly

sometimes I wake and find I'm falling down
headlong to the ground
sometimes I crash into the dust and my self
is shattered all around

how can I rise? how can I stand?
how can I survive until the end?
Track Name: we can work it out
you believe that I've been cheating
but can't you feel the way my heart is beating
come check my pulse and feel that I don't lie

let me be your possession
I will give you all my passion
I'll never ever make you cry

so please don't change a winning team
together we could face this world and make it our dream

we will find a way to go
I don't have a doubt
give it time to let it grow
we can work it out

well the only way to measure
all the love my heart could treasure
is to tear it up and turn it inside out

do you have to be so thorough?
do you have to feed upon my sorrow?
the more you probe the less you'll find out

so please don't change a winning team
together we could change this world and make it our dream

we will find a way to go
I don't have a doubt
give it time to let it grow
we can work it out
Track Name: lose control
getting back to our special place
trying to read between the lines of your face
when we get closer - more or less
you just lean back and take a deep breath

you always want to comprehend
there's nothing you don't understand
but now come on let your feelings grow
start to lose control

when you say that you're feeling fine
I can see you build a wall in your mind
to lock yourself away from outside
noone will know the thoughts that you hide

you always want to comprehend
there's nothing you don't understand
but now come on let your feelings grow
start to lose control

get away - lose your head
because you'll never get to feel a thing when you're dead
drop the stone - miss the grip
just close your eyes, empty your mind

nothing is ever easy with you
you're the toughest nut to crack that I knew
still I feel it's a sensual way
discovering feelings anew every day

I guess I'll never comprehend
some things I'll never understand
but when you let your feelings grow
I'll love to watch you lose control
Track Name: the whole world
when your friends are all pissed off
because you said some stupid stuff
and you're eating your birthday cake all alone
when the postman calls you names
and the waitress does the same
and in the subway old women poke their canes in your bones
and a kid with a cap spills his coke on your coat
and you're feeling so tense like you're bound to explode

when your girlfriends pass by
just to tell you good bye
'cause the've met each other when your goldfish died
now they've painted your bedroom
in a most obscene way
just to make you remember those happy days
and they drop your TV - oooops - by chance on the floor
and your troubles are getting more more more and more

the whole world is fighting you
billions of people are looking for you
lock the door and go back to bed
sleeping is better than a blow on your head

when your boss' car is new
paid for by the jobs you do
working after hours on the nightshift crew
still he threatens you with cuts
man this guy has got some guts
but since you've got to pay the bills he's stuck on you
and at the end of the cash there's so much month left to go
but when you ask for advance the answer's no no no

the whole world is fighting you
billions of people are looking for you
lock the door and go back to bed
sleeping is better than a blow on your head

the whole world - the whole world
the whole world - the whole world
the whole world - the whole world

the whole world is fighting you
billions of people are looking for you
lock the door and go back to bed
sleeping is better than a blow on your head
Track Name: my favourite playgroup
there was a time when I was playing alone 
every night in front of the screen
there was a time when I would stand in a corner
hoping that I would be seen

my lack of confidence was holding me back
in finding a partner for games
I was admiring girls from afar
drawing hearts 'round their names

those times are over since I have met you
and now you are a part of my life
everyday we are playing this game
of loving husband and wife

I never imagined how fun it would be
with lots of laughter and joy
I never believed it would happen to me
we're each other's favourite toy

playing with your things and you can always play with mine
show me what you've got and I will promise to show you mine
this is my favourite playgroup of all times

our presence in time is like the tip of a knife
you blink and in a moment it's gone
what is the point of living this life 
without having a good deal of fun

this game isn't meant to be played on your own
each one has a part of the whole
so let's share it all until the dice are thrown
nature has dealt us our roles

playing with your things and you can always play with mine
show me what you've got and I will promise to show you mine
this is my favourite playgroup of all times

playing with your things and you can always play with mine
show me what you've got and I will promise to show you mine
this is my favourite playgroup of all times
Track Name: change is all the same
I like to go up when the sun's coming down
on the highest hill where I see all around
as I wait for the stars to appear in the sky
while the day goes out and the night comes by

the night air is cool while I ponder my life
I think of my troubles, the worries and strife
put my hands on the ground and let them flow away
collecting my powers for the coming day

everything is moving each and every day
step by step but forwards live along the way
change is all the same

I like to go back when the crowd urges on
look for the flowers that were trampeled upon
go for a walk when the curfew begins
push through the thistles, scratching my shins

everything is moving each and every day
step by step but forwards live along the way
change is all the same

I like to go up when the sun's coming down
on the highest hill where I see all around
as I wait for the stars to appear in the sky
while the day goes out and the night comes by

everything is moving each and every day
step by step but forwards live along the way
change is all the same
Track Name: the riverman's call
so I sit on the doorstep 
waiting for the one
and I listen for footsteps 
that will never come

and I sit by the river 
hear the riverman's call
and I walk in the forest
where the broken leaves fall

it is days that I've waited
hoping for a sign
even weeks will be gone soon
I don't care about time

I don't care about living
in this lonesome shell
very soon I will give in 
be it heaven or hell

and I sit by the river
hear the riverman's call
very soon I shall give in
though I'm losing it all
