Lyrics

1. Dark Lady

Music :Ulrich Roth
Lyrics:Ulrich Roth

Sitting alone in the doghouse
Thinking of you all the time
Sighing, crying
Sitting alone in the doghouse
Thinking of you all the time
Sighing, crying

Dark lady

Sitting alone by my window
Counting the stars of the night
Waiting, hating
Sitting alone by my window
Counting the stars of the night
Waiting, hating

Dark lady

Sitting and watching the sunrise
Darkness is filling my eyes
Sighing, crying
Sitting and watching the sunrise
Darkness is filling my eyes
Sighing, crying

Dark Lady

2. In Trance

Music :Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:Klaus Meine

I wake up in the morning
and the sun begins to shine
the day did sneak up on the night
I see your face and I see myself
and I get a little taste of life
I try to stand it for a while

But I’m in a trance
Hey baby tell me can’t you hear me calling
I’m in a trance
I take too much in the Saturday night
Hey… Hey
Hey baby tell me can’t you hear me calling
I’m in a trance
I wanna try to stop this life

I feel so sad I’m feeling down
On the radio the music plays
I’m in love with her and I feel fine
I close my eyes
I think today is getting better with a sip of wine
and I can stand it for a while

When I’m in a trance
Hey baby tell me can’t you hear me calling
I’m in a trance
I take too much in the Saturday night
Hey… Hey
Hey baby tell me can’t you hear me calling
I’m in a trance
I wanna try to stop this life

I’m in a trance
Hey baby tell me can’t you hear me caling
I’m in a trance
I take too much in the Saturday night
Hey…Hey
Hey baby tell me can’t you hear me calling
I’m in a trance
I wanna try to stop this life

3. Life’s Like A River

Music :Ulrich Roth, Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:Corinna Fortman

As years are passing by
Silence becomes your friend
You see the world in a different way
Don’t be afraid of getting old
Life’s still full of joy
And the beauty of the past is rejoicing your mind

When days are getting short
And winter comes along
Your life slows down and down
Like a river getting wide
The worlds have lost their force
You remember your morning flow into the endless sea

When days are getting short
And winter comes along
Your life slows down and down
Like a river is getting wide
The worlds have lost their voice
You remember your morning flowing to the endless sea

Life’s like a river in the morning
Life’s like a sea without end
Life’s like a river in the morning
Life’s like a sea without end

Life’s like a river in the morning
Life’s like a sea without end
Life’s like a river in the morning
Life’s like a sea without end

4. Top of the Bill

Music :Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:Klaus Meine

You’re a rock-n-roll star
You’re out of the charts
Your glory’s cold you’re getting old
But your life is rock-n-roll

Your crazy rock-n-roll band
Is spinning in your head (in your head)
Each generation makes us stars
As the first five on the charts

Ohhh…and they are top of the bill

You’re a rock-n-roll star
You’ve been the first one on the chart
You’ve had glory and fame
Rock-n-roll was your game

Ohhh…and you were top of the bill

5. Living and Dying

Music :Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:Klaus Meine

In the dirty old city
There is my home
There’s my home, there’s my home
There is my home

Nothing really looks pretty
And I’ve been alone
I’ve been alone, I’ve been alone
I’ve been alone

And in my heart
Many wishes are crying
Living and dying

And in my heart
Many wishes are crying
Living and dying

In the house of darkness
There’s a magic stone
Magic stone, magic stone
The magic stone

But I couldn’t find it
‘Cause the shine is gone
Shine is gone, shine is gone
The shine is gone

And in my heart
Many wishes are crying
Living and dying

And in my heart
Many wishes are crying
Living and dying

Living and dying
Living and dying

6. Robot Man

Music :Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:Klaus Meine

Crave communication
See me this is my life in the crazy robot man reservation
Do you feel him, the cold vibration
‘Cause a man everywhere, produce a crazy science fiction creation

And I say oooh, oooh
I’m a robot man
And I say oooh, oooh
I’m a loser
I say oooh, oooh
I’m a robot man
I lost my mind
I lost my life
I lost my soul

Babe, it’s a magic station
Where we live what we do with our magic from my generation
I say babe, it’s not a vision
It’s reality, this is a robot scene what we live in.

And I say oooh, oooh
I’m a robot man
And I say oooh, oooh
I’m a loser
I say oooh, oooh
I’m a robot man
I lost my mind
I lost my life
I lost my soul

And I say oooh, oooh
I’m a robot man
And I say oooh, oooh
I’m a loser

I say oooh, oooh
I’m a robot man
And I say oooh, oooh
I’m a loser…

7. Evening Wind

Music :Ulrich Roth
Lyrics:Ulrich Roth

A summer day is gone
Listen to the evening wind
Singing tunes of tamarind
Into the setting sun
You lie in twilight sleep
Dreaming colors deep
Today all life is gone

Look at the golden chalice
Plight broken on the ground
Green fire blazing round
Where are your friends
You see all hope
Lying broken on the slope
Today all life is gone

Have you ever listened to the evening wind
To the gentle breeze and its truth
Have a listen and you will see, my friend
Wind is telling you the truth

8. Sun In My Hand

Music :Ulrich Roth
Lyrics:Ulrich Roth

Yeah, well I’d like to tell you something now
Before madness shows her lucid feathers in the sky

How can you lose your mind
How can you waste your time
Only like that
Look at the sun inside
Of my hand so bright
I call it music

And if you touch you’ll see
It comes from infinity
It’s made forever
You will not touch in vain
Music will make you sane
Burn like you say ’em

How can you lose your mind
How can you waste your time
Only like that
Look at the sun inside
Of my hand so bright
I call it music

9. Longing For Fire

Music :Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:Ulrich Roth

Flying with dark eyes
Ever longing for fire
Crying, black as night
The night wind brings me higher

In search of light
Escape the night one day
She’s lost in time
To space so high
Time’s passing by and I
I’m on my way

In search of light
Escape the night one day
She’s lost in time
To space so high
Time’s passing by and I
I’m on my way

10. Night Lights

Music :Ulrich Roth

Instrumental
