Track Name: Fast car
Sunset in the desert
I am driving to fast
I am living for the minute (living for the minute)
A dusty cloud
Is all that’s left from my past
I am living for the minute (living for the minute)

Straight ahead
I’m the captain of this ship
I don’t care about the rest (living for the minute)
I don’t apologize
I’m shooting from the hip
I don’t care about the rest (living for the minute)

I don’t solve my problems
Just leave them all behind
Don’t listen to advices
Refuse to rewind

I’ve got a fast car
And I’m not afraid to push it
Driving on the highway
And I don’t look back
I’ve got a fast car
Ignore the red lights

I don’t give a damn
The limit’s not for me
I am living for the minute (living for the minute)
Go for what I want
Choose the things I see
I am living for the minute (living for the minute)
I don’t chase my dreams
Just let them come to me
I don’t wait for miracles
They know where I will be

Chorus

I’ve got a fast car
Living for the minute...

Chorus
Track Name: Every day every night
I’ve got a problem
Can someone help me out
Wonder every night
What life’s all about

Searching for the answer
What’s in it for me
Dream about the future
And how it’s going to be

It’s you that make me happy
I believe you when you say
It’s me you’re thinking of
Every day
You give me the moments
Of pleasure and delight
Is it me you’re dreaming of
Every night

Searching for a treasure
Can’t even find the map
Join the conversations
But it’s only crap

Ask so many questions
Looking for advice
Waiting for a promise
Afraid of all the lies
Chorus
Track Name: A toast to the night
Sometimes I wonder
Is it worth all the pain
A few stolen minutes
Then lonely again

Picking the crumbs
From a rich mans floor
Is not enough
I want so much more

I saw the good things
I’m starving to death
This hunger
Takes my breath

A feast in the castle
Maybe nothing for me
But however
It’s there I want to be

Why pick the silver
When there is gold
Why leave this story untold

Want you for breakfast
Want you for lunch
Want you as snack
Want you for brunch
Want you for dinner
In the candlelight
Want you as coffee
Want you as tea
Want you to flow all over me
Want you as my wine
A toast to the night

Sometimes the longing
Is to hard to stand
Our love comes to nothing
Just prints in the sand

Why stand in the line
outside heaven
When there’s a backstage pass
to hell?

Chorus

Cut down on demands
To be satisfied
Did I say I like that?
Well then I lied

Chorus

Let’s drink to the night
Track Name: In my dreams
A lonely street light
Reflections in the pools of water
A rainy night
An empty misty street

Silent houses
The windows look like black mirrors
A lonely cigarette
Glows in the dark

In my dreams
I search for you to share my secrets
In my dreams
I never sleep

An empty pavement
Shady business in the alley
A lonely rambler
Echoes of high heels

A muffled noise
Of music from suspicious bars
A heavy suitcase
An unknown destination

In my dreams
I wake you up from scary nightmares
In my dreams
I take you in my arms
In my dreams
I walk with you in flowering gardens
In my dreams
I never sleep

Dogs are barking
From a distance
Moon is shining wild and sharp

In my dreams
I fly with you over the oceans
In my dreams
I hide you from the world
In my dreams
I drink with you the sweetest wine
In my dreams
I never sleep

A desolate bell
Tells me that the dawn is near
I return
To fragments of reality...
Track Name: Still standing
The room is spinning
The radio’s out of tune
Playing song from distant worlds
in long forgotten tongues

The world is slightly swaying
a tremor underneath
My skin is pricked by needles
The air too thick to breath

Ah and I wonder
If I’ve got what I deserve

Emotions under pressure
in sickness and in health
Undercover pleasures
in poverty and wealth

Voices without faces
fills me up with fear
Screaming in my head
words I will not hear

I’m still standing
Infected from your love, I’m not falling
I’m still standing
Infected from your passion I refuse to fall

Illusions on the walls
Better safe than sorry
Ignoring the calls
no need to worry

Just have to face the facts
There’s no way of winning
This must be the end
or is it the beginning

Ah and I wonder
Does it have to be this painful

Chorus

The radio is on
The radio is still on
On and on, on and on, on
Track Name: Addicted
I haven’t slept for days
I need to get some rest
I only got you on my mind
Like someone that’s possessed

One moment it is heaven
The next is hell
The only thing I know for sure
Is that I’m under your spell

Is there nothing I can do?
I am
Addicted to you

There ain’t no drug
There ain’t no cure
There ain’t no hope
But I’m sure
No matter what you say or do
I’ll be coming back to you

I called the clinic
I’ve got a poison in my veins
Just give me any drug you’ve got
That takes away the pain

They said
“For this poison there is nothing we can do
There ain’t no cure for love
And there ain’t no cure for you”

I am
Is there nothing I can do?
I am
Addicted to you

Chorus
Track Name: Still
Lying here alone again
Thinking about you
Dream of all the things
We’re never going to do

We could let the winds take us up to higher skies
We could let the angels show the way to paradise
We could let the rain wash the tears out from our eyes
But still we have to dance with the devil
For a while

Walk around in circles
Sneaking like a thief
Hiding in the darkness
Never ever alone

We could let the sun paint our silhouettes in gold
We could tell the stories no one ever told
We’ll pick up our lives and walk another mile
But still we have to dance with the devil
For a while

Still we have to walk
among the shadows in the night
And still we’re on a road
through the tunnel without light
Still we have no answer
to our knocks on heaven’s door
Still we see no dawn can we take it anymore
Anymore...

We could let the colors shine like diamonds in our minds
We could let the moonshine show the way when we were blind
We could reach for heaven we could even touch the stars
But still we have to dance with the devil
For a while...

Still we have to deal with the devil.
Track Name: House of dreams
I checked into the room
In your house of dreams
Asked for the key
To your house of dreams

You said, “You don’t need a key love
You can stay for free
And if you are a good girl
You might even visit me”

I knew somehow it was too good to be true
But I couldn’t resist
I couldn’t resist that dream of me and you
In that house of dreams

I had a look around
In your house of dreams
And all the doors were locked
In your house of dreams

There were endless corridors
And no one to be seen
It seems to be a lonely place
That house of dreams

But the walls are thin
And at night I can hear you scream
In pain or of pleasure
Who knows?

Who knows what’s in you house of dreams
More than me
God knows I tried to escape
I’ve tried to break free
But I surrender now
‘Cause the only thing I see
Is the inside of these walls
In this house of dreams

And so I’ve settled down
In your house of dreams
I’ve made myself comfortable
In your house of dreams

Somehow time just passes by
Year after year
And I feel no regrets
And I feel no fear

I only wish you visit me
More often than you do
I don’t like to dream alone
I don’t like to dream without you
In your house of dreams
Track Name: Walk with me
Fire – Come here and walk with me
Higher – Come here and fly with me
Liar – Come here and cry with me
Fire – Come here and burn

Fire – Come feel the heat with me
Fire – Come sail away with me
Fire – Come here and die with me
Fire – Come here and burn

Flames are calling out my name
Ready for the final game
Walk with me in heaven
Walk with me in...

Fire – Come sell you soul with me
Fire – Come shed your tears with me
Fire – Come share the light with me
Fire – Come here and burn

Die without confess your sins
Play without a chance to win
Walk with me in heaven
Walk with me in...

Angels are crying
Behind my back
Demons are laughing
And wish me luck

Purgatory, walk through me
Burning for eternity
Live with me and die with me
I’m going to stay here forever

In a never dying light
Glowing in an endless night
Join me in the final fight
And we can stay here forever

Never have to fight again
This will be my last refrain
Walk with me in heaven
Walk with me in hell
Track Name: Stay
It’s dark outside
and all is still and quiet
I drive my demons out with wine

And in the air
A memory that lingers
A scent that haunts my mind

I wish you’d stayed
a moment longer
or forever
‘cause every time you go
I fall apart

I close my eyes
And all I see is darkness
A long and sleepless night

I’m all lost
in this labyrinth of my desire
Is there a light to guide me home

Chorus
Track Name: Fear
Fear
So much fear
I’m afraid
So much fear in me

I fear I love you
I fear I don’t
I fear I want you
I fear you don’t
But most of all
I fear fear
It’s the enemy of love
Fear

Pain
So much pain
I’m afraid
So much pain in me

I fear you hurt me
I fear you don’t
I fear I hurt you
I fear you won’t
But most of all
I fear fear
It’s the enemy of love
Fear

But most of all
I fear fear
It’s the enemy of love
Is fear
Track Name: So much more
This is a story about a girl who loved a boy
He was the world to her
To him she was a toy

He closed his eyes when he played the game of love
He was never honest
He just never lied

So many worlds, side by side
So many worlds that can collide

They played in heaven, they played on earth
They played in places
of which no one had heard

He was a God to her, and she was his queen
Rulers of a universe
No one else had seen

Chorus

So much more
So much more

This is a story without a happy end
She wanted so much more
And he could not pretend

So now they dream their dreams of love apart
In his tower built by fear
In her well of tears

Chorus
Track Name: I like it
Tried so many ways
No improvement to see
Candles and hypnosis
Nothing for me

Dabbed my skin with oils
Scents of herbs all around
Magnetic fields to my head
No comfort I found

Your fingers through my hair
Make miracles to me
Kisses on my eyes
And suddenly I see

Used to ask the crystal
I convened the spirits
Searched for any god
Only demons appeared

Heal me baby heal
Come take my fears away
Feel me baby feel
Follow me to Wonderland
Love me baby love
Give me shelter under your spell
Let me share your magic
Follow me to hell
And I like it

Asked my cards again
Magician showed his face
Needles to my skin
Lost in this maze

Tried to meditate
Relaxed in light of fire
Your face among the flames
Called back my desire

Chorus
Track Name: Whispers
These days my dreams are silent whispers in my ear
(Come close, come near, closer and listen)
‘Cause in that burst of static there’s something I want you to hear
(Come close, come near, and listen, a whisper)

I still want...

A voice that never sleeps, that never rests, whisper in my ear
(Come close, come near, closer and listen)
Fading in and fading out, I wonder if you can hear
(Come close, come near, and listen, a whisper)

I still want... YOU!
Track Name: Behind the mask
In Wonderland tonight
Just me and my piano
In Wonderland tonight
Just me and my fear

I wonder what you do
I wonder what you dream of
I wish that you were here
In Wonderland with me

But where ever you are
Don’t pretend
It’s all that I ask
‘Cause when the night falls
You’re my guiding star
Please, please don’t change
Don’t pretend
Just be what you are
‘Cause I love the man
I love the man behind the mask

In Wonderland tonight
It’s dark and it’s cold
In Wonderland tonight
Only my demons laugh with me

And if you look into the sky
Is it the same moon as here?
I just wish that you could see it
In Wonderland with me

Chorus

Shine, shine on me
I beg you, shine on me
I’m all lost
I can’t find my way
So shine, like a star
Just shine

Chorus
