Lyrics

Idianapolis

save your breath and save your smile
this is not just a mood passing after a while
my compliment, you’d understand
that you’re everything else but surely not my friend
and all you say, is all I do
but hey this time, it's up to you

she just breaks out


counting on five fingers

no, this won't help me getting further
thinking thoughts like driving cars, yeah
I'm not with you I'm not at this place
still keep on searching where you are, where we are, you are

it feels like - I’m counting on five fingers - everything you are!

I don't need to know every last detail
sprinkling salt into open scars, no
I'm not with you I'm not at this place
still keep on searching where you are, where we are, you are

It’s even more than enough, it’s even more than enough, yes, I say:„No!“


chet baker & me

this time - I think I’d rather stay in progress,
(i said) this time - I think it’s better just to talk less,
I’d like to have a melodie, a melodie that I can sing with you
like all these movies always show – a perfect hollywood production – it’s true
but maybe we give (it) a try
always someone's on - yeah

Let’s start this day with something new
We could use a time-out now
In Paris, San Fransisco, or in Rio
Something we’d always liked to do
We could use a time-out now
In Paris, San Fransisco, or in Rio

this time - I think I’d rather stay in progress,
(yeah and it’s ) this time - I think it’s better just to talk less,
And the answers you’ve found are questions
(so) I cover my ears with coolness

Let’s start this day with something new
We could use a time-out now
In Paris, San Fransisco, or in Rio
Something we’d always liked to do
We could use a time-out now
In Paris, San Fransisco, or in Rio


drop that beautiful

I guess I know about the words you’re here and you like to say
and I’m getting tired of listening to it anyway
yes, yes I’m walking the railroaldtrack again
yes, yes this time I won’t come back here, my friend
cause I got finished, I got finished with your fear
no more faking feels right

yeah – yeah yeah yeah
drawer thinking on your dead end way
I drop that beautiful, drop that beautiful
I don’t mind about the reaons to stay
and it feels like and it feels like I’m home again

putting all thesee things my into my bag
I can forgive but I can’t forget
yes, yes I’m walking the railroadtrack again
yes, yes this time I won’t come back here, my friend
cause I got finished, I got finished with your fear
no more faking feel right

sometimes we got lost in this too much
cause I got finished with this fears - it's all done
sometimes we got lost in this too much
this tv-shows and comedies won't built me up


vs.

she said: don't you hesitate!
but I can't start and I can't wait
I got this always breaking aching heart
and your more than just a part - of it now

he said: I want you to stop?
what you tried is not enough
You got this always breaking aching heart
and I'm more than just a part - of it now

these small things keep me satisfied
searching fire hiding light
oh won't you please tell me
something that I haven't heard

something I want to forget
words you didn't mean like that
I got this always breaking aching heart
and your more than just a part - of it now

go ahead - cause someone said so


this is training

alright just keep out of my sight – I do feel so insecure.
a long time everything it felt fine – I need nicotin, that’s for sure!
no need for, for complaining, I’m o.k., cause this is training.
yeah it’s right I learnt a lot today,
really nothing more to say,
in this state.

and she said:
these rooms are made for waiting,
take a seat come down,
here’s some paper to read in...

Last night I woke up at past five, hell I hate the way the street-lights burn!
Drink some water but beware of drinking wine, guess that’s something I will never learn.
no need for, for complaining, I’m o.k., cause this is training.
yeah it’s right I learnt a lot today,
really nothing more to say,
in this state.

these rooms are made for waiting,
take a seat come down,
here’s some paper to read in...
and all the things that she might say,
and all the things that I might say
are made for waiting, are made for waiting...


learning by doing

eight a.m. stand up and set that breakfast plate – there’s money to be made.
s-i-c-k , I feel sick in all possible ways – that coffee machine sounds great.

It was no big deal to get me in,
you told me I had style, I’m looking in,
and all the times we wondered what has changed,
there must be something more or even somebody else

ten a.m. the second verse needs to be filled – „could you please repeat the first?“
and still no rest, no sleep, the tube it’s always on – but all the ideals they have gone!


read the manual first


how do you lose

I've never been at this place here before
maybe I'm hiding what I had become
expecting less expecting more
you'll sing them all with gentle tone
maybe you're right, and of course I'm wrong
we know 10 versions of a clever starting
how I loved that you could save the song

and anytime - if you like
we listen to my stereo
at anytime - if you like
I sing you songs - yet I don't know

so you're liking, liking, liking the "alrights"
but I can't use them anymore
I'm so tired of making you hear me, of making you just adore
all these times head over water
learning not to
all these times head over water
learning not to drown


and you could give your cat a better name

nothing's more like it's used to be
the things I said no that's not me
just for this song I might be wrong
I just could start to write books about my cares
but doubts are all we have and share
it's all so sick, so fucking sick

who do you think you are

watching tv cures my eyes,
i'm building up this house with lies
and don't have a clue about me and you
so why do you turn the radio on
I know your records and some better songs
it's all so loud, so fucking loud

we sit down talk till 2:00 or 3:00
get sick of drinking to much tea
cause nothing's more like it's used to be
I hate the words you're telling me
and you could give your cat a better name

who do you think you are
