When she’s good

 

She’s got a good job and a bunch of friends

It’s a small town life of innocence

A scene from Eden and so boring clean

When I look in her eyes I smell gasoline

 

She’s like a beast of prey – You’re just flesh to x-ray

She’s what you need to release
all the pressure of the day

She’s a girl to obey – Makes every good man sway

 

When she’s good she’s good – when she’s bad she’s better

She breaks your sleep it’s an open invite

When she’s good she’s good – when she’s bad she’s better

She boils your blood you can’t save your hide

 

She’s got high heels and head in the clouds

Everthing about her is so purse proud

She’s got no camouflage in weal and woe

It’s a keen competition where we both can grow

 

She’s like a beast of prey – You’re just flesh to x-ray

She’s what you need to release all the pressure of the day

She’s a girl to obey – Makes every good man sway

 

When she’s good she’s good – when she’s bad she’s better

She breaks your sleep it’s an open invite

When she’s good she’s good – when she’s bad she’s better

She boils your blood you can’t save your hide

 

 

 

Spotlight

 

I’ve been away too long, I’m weak, I think I’m starving

I never see you (but) I can hear you talking

A wishing well, a soul to sell, a good pretender

I’m begging you please they will urge you to surrender

 

They play for love not for any power from above

They play for time and then stop on a dime

They never play for keeps –

they sneak out while you sleep

 

You’re yet in too deep,

you’re caught in their game

It makes my flesh creep, you’re just fuel for the flame

 

You think you’re safe

You’re in danger

Hide your face from that stranger

When the spotlight’s on the dancefloor be aware

 

You think you’re strong

But they’re stronger

(they) want your touch

to still their hunger

When the spotlight’s on the dance floor

The boys are heading out for more

 

I hear the ticking of the clock it must be nighttime

Half awake again I hear you talking

Can’t stop my brain, a stabbing pain, I’m losing hold

I’m begging you please break the mold

 

They never play for high stakes but they wait

for your mistakes

They play you for a fool, cold and cruel

They only play to win they make you swallow sin

 

 

 

 

All bets are off

 

I’m not digging deep

The surface is my world

Life is a roll of a dice

I always push my luck

cause all bets are off

They say I never think twice

 

I know you are losing some sleep over who I am

Stop your brain, it’s a chain,

feel the life in your veins

 

I always push my luck

‘cause all bets are off

I’m always in the vanguard

when the times are getting rough

I always push my luck

‘cause all bets are off

 

I don’t need no sleep

I lay it on the line

I only came to play

So better shed your hope

It’s all that you have

And luck is coming your way

 

I always push my luck

‘cause all bets are off

I’m always in the vanguard

I can never get enough

I always push my luck

‘cause all bets are off

 

 

 

 

Where I belong

 

Left alone with my toy gun

I was always on the run

And nothing ever seems to change

 

Like a dream in black & white

Whatever went wrong you turned right

I’ve never seen you breaking down

 

I bet you can’t see big love coming

They say you feel it when it’s there

Coming all out of a sudden

Makes a beggar feel like a millionaire

 

I’m here today gone tomorrow

I know I know where I belong

Forget about yesterday it’s gone away

now I’m back I’m back where I belong

 

Rocky roads we’ve all got to take

Sometimes all is at stake

And the more you push the more you lose control

It’s better to lose than to quit

I hear these words since I was a kid

Thanks to you I’ll never back down

 

Don’t ever lose your hold on me

Your hold on me – I’m head over heels

Take cover take cover from me

 

Left alone with my toy gun

I was always on the run

And nothing ever seems to change

 

 

 

 

Somebody new

 

It’s been a while – it’s been a while since I lost track of you

Now and then I recall our ups and downs and in between

I hear you’re back in town – they say you wanna stay

You’ve left all bridges burning now but don’t think my world

stopped turning

 

Cause you’ll see me – with somebody new

I feel you turning to stone

I know you never thought I’ll ever get over you

 

Now there’s somebody new

Who’s sure to stay and stand by me

You had your doubts you wanted to break free

Our time has passed so let me be

 

It took some time – it took some time ‘til I was seeing through

All’s fair in love and war – life was good and safe and bittersweet

While I was building my world around you – you were turning away

I was dashed to the ground and you were the toughest girl around

 

We’re all our own devil and we make this world our hell

Don’t get lost along the way – I wish you well

 

 

 

 

Dangerous

 

Some people say my life is in danger

Some people say I should better beware

I make my living while playing with fire

I make your day ’cause you think I care

 

It all worked out fine ’til I met her

 

She’s got a devil of a temper and she’s dangerous

She left a piece of paper with illegible scrawl

She won’t wait for your break up call

She’s dangerous!

 

I’m chasing rainbow after rainbow

I’m calling challenge everyday

People say I can’t live forever

I see they don’t live at all

 

It all worked out fine ’til I met her

 

She’s got a devil of a temper and she’s dangerous

She’s got a face of a doll – she’s a gun moll

She won’t wait for your break up call

She’s dead dead dangerous!

 

I used to skew the truth – the truth is I lie to you

It’s running in the blood, braving every storm,

it makes you blue

Heads or tails? – my head is pounding

But my heart, my heart is bullet-proof

 

She’s got a devil of a temper

She’s dangerous!

 

 

 

 

Beat of my heart

 

Once again I’m wandering

along the streets at night

To find some clear thoughts on my own

Under cover of moonlight

In the pictures of my destiny

you were still a part of me

What once was is long ago

 

Don’t make the mistake in thinking

that it could ever be as if she never was

 

I still can feel the beat of my heart

So I won’t hide away my need

I still can feel the pounding

beat of my heart

I live my dream this is my creed

 

Now and then I try again

to slowly open my soul

But the times are gone that I dive head down

into loss of control

No matter what I aim to do

I am only passing through

That was then – this is now

 

Don’t make the mistake in thinking

that it could ever be as if she never was

 

You are my restlessness

 

 

 

 

Other people’s lives

 

Starry night you’re driving alone

From a place you can’t call home

Left one more piece of your heart

One more promise and the thousandth start

 

You give it all you‘ve got

You push you never stop

You never hide your soul

You run run run ’til you lose control

 

Sometimes you feel you never come by

Sometimes it seems you fail whatever you try

But don’t search for luck in other people’s lives

Sometimes it seems you’re running off track

Hanging on to memories that will never come back

Stop escaping into other people’s lives

 

This time it feels like a new forever

Or yet a story of vain endeavour

It’s the people who don’t know the game

who live in fame or go down in flame

 

Hey hopeless romantic

This is your conscience calling

At first you deceive yourself

Then you lie to everybody

 

 

 

 

Beggar and thief

 

The ocean is burning every mountain’s melting down

When you’re around me or sticking ‘round my town

Once in a lifetime someone sweeps your heart away

I was so close to a good thing but that was yesterday

 

I don’t need no silver – I don’t need no gold

It’s just this pretty girl I wanna hold

 

I’m no beggar – I’m no beggar, I’m no thief

I know you don’t even see me and he would never leave

Beggar and thief

 

I’m closing all the windows, every door, I shut the lights

Just a poor man’s habit knowing he won’t sleep tonight

My world is shaking I’m about to lose control

Every time I see you I feel the hole in my soul

 

I don’t need no silver – don’t need no gold

It’s just this pretty girl I wanna hold

 

I’m no beggar – I’m no beggar, I’m no thief

I know you don’t even see me

and he would never leave

I’m no beggar – I’m no beggar, I’m no thief

But I’d lie and steal and borrow

just to make you believe

Beggar and thief

 

 

 

 

Nothing to lose

 

When you’re feeling alone

When things (are) going wrong

When you ain’t got nobody to give all your love

 

When you ain’t got no hope

When the night kills the light

When there’ll be nobody to stand by your side

 

In those nights when the storms are raging

I still can hear her calling my name

 

Life’s so hard but all we know

Round & round & round we go

Never give up and never get down

You only can win ´cause there’s nothing to lose

 

When you’re near to resign

Think you’re losing your mind

When all seems lost, when rage makes you blind
