lyrics by Alex Wurlitzer

01) Woodstock`s gone

You turn the pages and move along
Years have been forgotten like a childhood song
Everything is distant everything´s unreal
Too many ways to start it this is how I feel how I feel

I won´t go any further I´ll stand my ground
But you´ve gotta choose if you´re in or if you´re out
Playing out your cards right will help to make your bet
But you just can´t win a game not made for that made for that

The days fly past your silent dreams
All magic is gone it is what it seems
The last feeling of pleasure sucked up and dry
Fortune has spoken I don´t know why don´t know why

Finally you broke up scattered all your tears
The vision you cling to is fading by degrees
This is not the road you want you don´t wanna walk at all
Finally you realize you just began to fall began to fall

Riding high the water´s dry nothing´s wrong
Woodstock´s gone
Sky is blue Dylan´s grey
Where´s that feeling anyway

So this was my story I hope you get it made
To find a place for living a shelter from the dead
You´re one of the few to stand your ground
This is where you started here you´re going down going down

Riding high the water´s dry nothing´s wrong
Woodstock´s gone
Sky is blue Dylan´s grey
Where´s that feeling
Riding high the water´s dry something´s wrong
Beauty gone
Sky is grey Dylan´s true
Where´s that feeling where are you

02) Calling to the wind

Once I´d been travelling down to a place I used to be
A quiet reminder of times you were with me
When I was bolder standing by the sea
Through the misty ways of childhood´s golden time
From the mountains that I left behind
Over green grass and blossoms of today

Trees on a winding road
Calling to the wind
To the sea to the sea
Trees on a winding road
Calling to the wind
To the sea carelessly

On the mainline to my destiny
In the sunshine where everything is free
Past the old days of this town´s history

Trees on a winding road
Calling to the wind
To the sea to the sea
Trees on a winding road
Calling to the wind
To the sea carelessly

In the shadows that I left behind
There´s your memory treating me unkind
And I guess that you´re the only one to find

Trees on a winding road
Calling to the wind
To the sea to the sea
Trees on a winding road
Calling to the wind
To the sea carelessly

03) Moving on

Seems like you´re doing the things we did without me
Are you still working on the cage you´ve built around me
You don´t read my letters and don´t answer the phone
So I´ve learned that it´s time for moving on

What you´re doing right now don´t really bother me
The things you said are fading in my memory
Tomorrow comes easy I don´t feel alone
The days are just fine I´ve built another home

And baby there must be something wrong
And maybe we´re meant to moving on
The more you lose the less you fall
Unless you choose to lose it all

Now I find myself in a crowded city
My feet are tired this town´s no place where I should be
There´s no reason to bring back what you lent me
I might use it, something you have told me

And baby there must be something wrong
And maybe we´re meant to moving on
The more you lose the less you fall
Unless you choose to lose it all

And baby there must be something wrong
And maybe we´re meant to moving on
The more you choose the less you fall
Don´t forget to choose it all

04) Secret path

It´s getting darker all the time
Spotlight´s right on me
Losing all my peace of mind
And what´s left of reality

Vulture´s hidin´ on that tree
I´m tryin´ to carry on
Malaise stuck inside of me
Lost inside the storm

Rollin´ on a secret path
For the mistress with a grin
Now this cage turned upside down
And she won´t let you in

It´s getting hard to see it through
I´m hidin´ deep within
There´s nothing left beside of me,
The sorrow and the sin

Everything is said and done
There´s nothing to disguise
Attracted by a lover´s hand
With a heart as cold as ice

Rollin´ on a secret path
For the mistress with a grin
Now this cage turned upside down
And she won´t let you in

Rollin´ on a secret path
For the mistress with a grin
Now this cage turned upside down
But she won´t let you in

Another town will set you free
Departure´s closing in
Mistaken as my destiny
Hopes crumbled in the wind

Rollin´ on a secret path
For the mistress with a grin
Now this cage turned upside down
But she won´t let you in

05) Buried in the past

It looks so good to see us all forgiven
With sparklin´ eyes I see them children playin´
Love will come you gotta keep believin´
Sorrow´s done no time for grievin´

In the past
In the past
Through at last
It is buried in the past

Mary´s on her way to see her darling
She keeps an open eye for what he´s doing
She holds her faith that he´ll never break her heart
And left the days when it was torn apart

In the past
In the past
Through at last
It is buried in the past

Some stranger nearly drowned in high water
The storm took all the things that he could gather
Now he´s waiting by a sign to fix his motor
Then he´ll be headin´ for a town in South Dakota

In the past
In the past
Through at last
It is buried in the past

Sometimes it´s getting hard to talk things over
I left a part of me when I got sober
Ten long years just waitin´ for October
There once was a time when I was so much older

In the past
In the past
Through at last
It is buried in the past

In the past
In the past
Through at last
It is buried in the past

06) Dust and stones

Hidden in obscurity a long forgotten day
There´s someone changing destiny
You find yourself in between the good and evil ways
A vanished place you long to be

You don´t know who you are
You make me feel I´m out of here

Trading all your memories for dust and stones
Denyal of the sweetest things
A picture of what´s meant to be hidden in a room
Broken bonds and friendship gone

You don´t know who you are
You make me feel I´m out of here
You don´t care who you are
You make it clear I´m out of here

07) Make it home

Little bright girl in a city
Making it on her own
You can keep it there but you still can make it home
You´re on my mind today
Listen to the words I say
If you want to leave
Baby we can go away

And she goes out dancing
Patti Smith and Killing Joke
Neil Young she might remember that´s the thing I know
Busking in this dirty town
This is not the place to stay
But if you want to leave
Baby we can go away

Songs to play and hearts to find
We both know what we´ve left behind
These times we know can´t let the feeling grow
Some will laugh and some will cry
Get on that bus it´s time to go

The days get long cause you´re still on my mind
Make it home love is hard to find

Little bright girl in a city
Wait until you´ve grown
The things you´ll find will make you feel alone
You´re on my mind today
Listen to the words I say
If you want to leave
Baby we can go away

The days get long cause you´re still on my mind
Make it home love is hard to find
The days get long cause you´re still on my mind
Make it home love is hard to find

08) Lebowski`s

Waking up in a filthy basement
Lost my carpet
Nothin´ but the blues
Looking foreward for a replacement
Ain´t that something but I am gettin´ used
To the shoes that I´m in
Got my Sunday cruise bowlin´ downtown
You can call me the Dude

Better don´t mess with the establishment
You won´t make it
They´ll be spittin´ on your shoes
Now I´m trying to regain my contentment
Ain´t that something but I am gettin´ used
To the mood that I´m in
I´ll go fix myself a drink....or two
You can call me the Dude

Tried to clean up this dirty mess now
Tried to fix it
Yeah nothin´ but the blues
There´s a story I´ve forgotten in the end
Ain´t that something but I am gettin´ used
To the shoes that I´m in
I´ll go fix myself a drink....or two
You can call me the Dude

09) Over the hills

Heard the bell one Sunday morning
Found me sleeping I´d turn my weary head
To hear some people talking ´bout me
They´ll go by never turning back

Made my day in the blanket
Once in a while I raise from bed
To get some water or change the station
I should put on some old records instead

Over the hills and far away
There´s nothing you can do to make me stay
I´m free to choose what is pleasin´
Over the hills and far away

Spent a long time waiting for you
When you came in you´ve found an empty bed
I was long gone in the shadows
On a greyhound with a bottle and a map

Now I´ll stay here - but not forever
I´m still moving to find out where I´m at
When the sun is high above me
I´m arriving somewhere and don´t feel too bad

Over the hills and far away
There´s nothing you can do to make me stay
I´m free to choose what is pleasin´
Over the hills and far away

10) No good

Going down down the same highway
I didn´t choose to wear black today
That´s just the way it turned out to be
I always told you you´re no good for me

I do remember all the things you said
And all the dreams of you that I had
There´s a memory that won´t fade away
And there is no sign to show me the way

We´re still at the place where we started
And still not wiser than on the day we parted
That´s the way it turned out to be
I always told you you´re no good for me

I don´t know why I´m still moving on
All I´ll ever know was said in a Dylan song
Everyone´s going to the circus in town
I´ve already been there when I was playing the clown

Everyone´s busy busy moving around
And I hardly can keep my feet on the ground
Sometimes I wonder if it´s good to be free
But now I don´t care and try to let it be

We´re still at the place where we started
A little older than on the day we parted
That´s the way it turned out to be
I always told you you´re no good for me

Can´t think of romance or what it should be
These times are different too different for me
Tomorrow is coming what good will it be
I´m thinking of something I´ve forgotten to see

I´ll go straight ahead straight into the sun
It´s hard to believe in days to come
The sun makes it brighter that´s what they say about
I like the sun couldn´t live without

Now I´m still at the place where I started
As confused as the broken hearted
That´s the way it turned out to be
I always told you you´re no good for me

11) Under the pines

The warmth and ease of summer
Were blown away by an iron breeze
It´s hard to make a stand
In this godforsaken land

Well I may call the doctor
But he´d just tell me what I already know
Listen son take care of what I say
Just try to stay away
You´d better leave today to

Where the sun shines on the valley
When the shadows all have gone away
That´s where we´ll gonna be
Under the pines

The night went by so slowly
My emptiness it comforts me
There´s no blood left to drain
The scars remain the same

I turn an empty bottle
Broken thoughts will leave their stain
I´ve just met you today
Can´t think of what I say
I´ll soon be on my way

To where the sun shines on the valley
When the shadows all have gone away
That´s where we´ll gonna be
Under the pines

Tomorrow´s gonna find me laughing
Yesterday will be far away
Summer is coming soon
Careless under the moon

I gaze at the horizon
And some old friend is telling me
We´re like flowers in the end
Can´t change the place we stand
Some will bloom and raise their heads to

Where the sun shines on the valley
When the shadows all have gone away
That´s where we´ll gonna be
Under the pines

12) The darkest of the days

Way too many years too many tears
To still feel the warmth of the sunshine
Don´t look so surprised you still catch my eye
When I raise my head above evening´s twilight

My soul turned to stone I sit alone
At the dawn of my confusion
With a glimpse on what´s left that I hold in my hand
Is it too late to lose my illusion

The streets are filled with shadows
They haunt me in my sleep
I could burn this whole place down
And I´d recline in my defeat

The darkest of the days are coming down
This time it´s not sure we make it around
The darkest of the days are coming down down down
This time it´s not sure we make it around

A photograph, a distant scene
Reminds me of what I fear
A forgotten dream brings to me
The only voice that I still hear

So my friend your trusted hand
Could guide me out of here
And would lead me where someone cared
To the place where I should be

The streets are filled with shadows
They haunt me in my sleep
I could burn this whole place down
And I´d recline in my defeat

The darkest of the days are coming down
This time it´s not sure we make it around
The darkest of the days are coming down down down
This time it´s not sure we make it around

The streets are filled with shadows
They haunt me in my sleep
I could burn this whole place down
And I´d recline in my defeat

The darkest of the days are coming down
This time it´s not sure we make it around
The darkest of the days are coming down down down
This time it´s not sure we make it around

13) Wasteland

When piece of crap just turns to gold
Traded for the golden rule
When all that really matters
Is gossip by some fools

Then I will shed a tear
For all the innocent that died
For all the beauty that´s been wasted
Then there´ll be more tears to cry

For the good times we could have
But have refused to take it
For the times we never talked
For the things we never shared

With our hearts being entwined
By the darkness in these wastelands
And the memories behind us
With broken bonds that bind us

All my thoughts of you distorted
Sometimes they´re broken, too
But my heart keeps longing for the day
That I can be with you

Hard to see where I come from
But it´s nothing to ignore

Now it´s getting hard to find someone
Worth living for



Now the sun has lost its light
With snowflakes falling onto sand
Some scattered dreams remind me
Of the beauty of this wasteland

14) Back home

Have you been into somethin´ that you can´t explain
This miserable feeling of breakdown and shame
Are you feelin´ guilty for calling my name
I won´t drag you down so just stay the same

Have you drifted too far from the shore
Many years have passed since the last time I´ve seen you
I don´t come around here no more
Been travellin´ around on my own
I´ve been searching but I can´t find my road back home

The people are busy playing the game
I´m the one in the desert praying for rain
Sometime it is nice to deny that it´s real
Well I´m just the fool that I used to be

Have you drifted too far from the shore
Many years have passed since the last time I´ve seen you
I don´t come around here no more
Been travellin´ around on my own
I´ve been searching but I can´t find my road back home

Now what´s the use of freedom when you´re down in the drain
When your pockets are empty and days stay the same
When you´re feeling lowdown with overdue dreams
In a starlit night with nothing to believe

Have you drifted too far from the shore
Many years have passed since the last time I´ve seen you
I don´t come around here no more
Been travellin´ around on my own
I´ve been searching but I can´t find my road back home
