The Picture

The Picture (Musik & Text: Michael Fliegner)

you’re like a mirror you are my twin but you won’t lose the youngness of your Skin
you should grow old instead of me leave me my youth the pleasure and my Beauty

leave you my soul my fear of age you shelter me from turning of the page
take all my guilt take all these thoughts don’t need no conscience no moral and no love

slowly a constant fear creeps into my mind
can’t take a look at it I take it out of my sight
I see my life in this picture my cruelness and the dark
I left my soul to this creature my conscience and my heart
I see my life in a picture a creation of my mind
a creature of my soul a creature of my life

she was so fine a real beauty but than she said she found reality 
a poisons kiss I feel mo pain I’ almost sure that I will go insane

the kiss of love a lie with no more feelings 
the scars of sin so deep carved in my heart of Stone
what has become of me no human being
my blade has robbed my only friend’s life I’m alone I’ alone I’ alone

it shows my soul it shows my sins it shows me everything my life has ever been
a face so bad a gaze so mean I see a liar a cheater so obscene

 

Clouds

Clouds (Musik & Text: Jo Gläßer)

when he was a Little boy he stood at the edge of the world
he was looking to the west and he was looking to the clouds 
and he wished to be like they were
then he grew up and the times to look up went rare
he had to work very hard and his wishes started to blur

he told himself someday I’ll go to places where the winds starts to blow

I’ll go far far far away I’m gonna catch me a cloud I’ gonna realize it someday
let the wind show me the way I will water the dry land and go to the highlands and stay

then he went older and times didn’t seem to get better 
he went to work every day and when he came home someday
she was gone and she left him a letter
she wrote darling I can’t bear you living like this 
you have to suffer alone I’m going now on my own and leave you this last kiss

when he was aged he forgot that he once had a dream 
and the memory of her that he had loved most vanished and was only aa gleam
when he felt life would end he looked up for the first time since years
he saw a cloud disengage and come closer to him and it whispered in his ears
