Track Name: Magic
Some days you feel the air get thick with magic
and your dreams get fingertips touching reality
The stars are smears of honey in the sky
and your dreams get fingertips touching reality
At once you find yourself with your heroes on the scene
singing songs together like you once dreamed
You didn't believe in magic but that moment was so real
so heavy that you allmost could not feel
Some days you feel the air get thick with magic
and your dreams get fingertips touching reality
The sun paints colored circles on the water
and your dreams get fingertips touching reality
You ran away from home and got lost in a foreign land
One day a stranger takes your hand
He tells you about Jesus and you don't know how to act
but all at once his prayer brings you back
to the arms of love to the arms of love to the arms of love.
Some days you feel the air get thick with magic
and your dreams get fingertips touching.
Track Name: More
This is in store...
a weird white horse
a black speckled horse
... and this is More
a boy called More a boy called More
They crossed my way in Tenessee
then they passed me by in Joshua Tree
they were allways cute and nice to see
but they never saw me
a boy called More on a weird white horse
black speckled horse and a boy called More
I saw them in the medows picking flowers
make a fire at the midnight hours
Before the sun announced the dawn
they were allready gone
I could spot them in the far away prairies
read about them in the book of fairies
I wonder if that horse is a stud or a mare...
Why should i care
for a weird white horse and a boy called More
black speckled horse and a boy called More
In a year with 13 moons
in a year with a little more room
Father time ...
turns never into soon
Underneath a blanket of stars
i could see them comming from afar
Once i a while dreams do come true
they got me out of the blue
a boy called More on a weird white horse
black speckled horse and a boy called More
a boy called More a boy called More
black speckled horse me and More
me and that horse
we want More
Track Name: Present
You're asleep upon my pillow
and i am playing your guitar
Please don't dream about the future
I don't know if i want to follow you that far
But today i am your present
just me and this old heart of mine
Let's not talk about the future
Let the past be out of time
'cause for now i am your present
and i guess that you are mine
You laugh 'cuz i believe in Angels
It makes you frown and raise your brows
You say where doubt is there is freedom
so i won't make you no vows
But today i am your present...
I was longing for a fairytale
A prince to put me upon a cloud
And here are you upon my doorstep
telling me that that is not what love's about
Well here am i , i am your present
just me and this old heart of mine
no one knows about the future
past will allways be the past
but we ara eachother's present
so let's drink and have a blast
Here's to the Present
Track Name: Old Woman´s Song
When i was a young girl
i rambled and i gambled
and i flirted with the cowboys
so pretty young and fine
I would never have a fear
I would drink whiskey and beer
and the bottles full of nectar
from the fruits upon the vine
So won't you open another bottle
cause my throught is thirsty and dry
i sure would like a taste of that whiskey
one more time before i die
Well i never had a husband
never had a real hometown
but the whole world was my lover
when i drank a bottle down
A party here and a party there
a pair of kinky underwears
and a pile of napkins
next to all the whiskey
down the stairs
So won't you open another bottle ...
I've done a lot of stupid things
but i never wore a ring
never found a man who was brave enough
to try and be my king
Still i kept looking for that prince
to bring me fortune and good luck
and thank God i had a bottle
when again my heart got stuck
So won't you open another bottle...
And now i'm an old woman
my life's a memory
there's times i don't remember
how things used to be
But there ain't no shame or sadness
for my life of drunken madness
if i had a second go you know...
i'd do it all again
So won't you open another bottle...
Track Name: Butch Cassidy
I saw you play that banjo
as if you played the fool moon itself
You were singing a sad lovesong
oohoohooh...
and if i had some guts i wouls ask you
If i could be your Sundancegirl
would you be my Butch Cassidy?
We could get out of the city
follow the trail of the outlaws
Yeah let's bail out you and me
then i can be your Sundancegirl
you could be my Butch Cassidy
we braught a briefcase to a hotelroom
and counted all our cash
10 000 $ on the floor
on the bed 10 000 more
We let it slide through our fingers
and then taped it on your belly
Never did i see so much money in my life
but there was more gold in your eyes and more silver
in your smile
Oh let's go back to Independence
just you and me and our guitars
We could sleep under the stars
again
and i would be your Sundancegirl
you would be my Butch Cassidy
Sure i could be your Sundancegirl
if you'd be my Butch Cassidy
Track Name: Cinderella Boots
You were checking out
I was checking in
I was gonna have to face
a lonely weekend in Berlin
So with a heavy heart i went downtown
I had a lot of spare time now and this is what found
I found these black boots in my spare time
then my soulbrother made them shine
These boots won't fit when other girls try them
No, i guess the Cinderella boots are mine
So you were just a frog, you can't be mine
I'm gonna kiss a real prince when it comes my time
I've got a lot of patience, i can wait
When my love meets my life these boots won't hesitate
I found these black boots in my spare time
then my soul brother made them shine
These boots won't fit when other girls try them
I guess the Cinderella boots are mine
Track Name: The Road
Shooting stars, boots and guitars
long rides between the stations
Loaded silence on the train
then a magic conversation
Somewhere between day and night
we allways got it right
Somewhere between day and night
the doors went open at twilight
A wizzard and a witch together on the road
A wizzard and a witch and a gang of angels on the road
I know it was your road but it could have been mine
I enjoyed every minute, i never felt so fine
Everything was so natural
Straight down the line
And we called aech other baby in one of your songs
It sure felt like i found myself when i was singing along
i was singing along...
I know now i ain't leading the life that's meant for me
I know i ain't seeing things that i'm supposed to see
I'm just doing stupid things like most of us do
but i'm getting sick&tired of it, what about you
A wizzard and a witch together on the road
A wizzard and a witch and a gang of angels on the road
I know it was your road but i wished it was mine
I enjoyed every minute, oh what a time
Track Name: Windowshoppingtime Again
Don't fly your heart against my windshield
Don't try to come inside that scarry field
cause you'll get hurt and i'll be sad
you'll make me feel like i'm real bad
cause i'll say no and you'll be mad
It's windowshoppingtime again
I'll try and try and try
I'll come inside, i'll look around
but probably i won't buy
no no,
i'll just look around and then i'll have to go
I'll give away some kisses but i'll never give my heart
cause if it ain't love it ain't worth a new start
and if it doesn't fit
i won't go for it
it should fit like a glove
or it ain't real love
an if it ain't real
i'll say no deal
It's windowshopping time again...
So gentleman please protect your heart
Don't put it in my hands it might fall apart
cause i saw just what i want but i ain't got what it takes
I said i'll buy, but he said don't even try
It's not for sale, i'll leave you on this windowshopping trail
So it's windowshoppingtime again...
Track Name: Solitary Wine
I'd gotten sick and tired of waiting in vain
I'd gotten sick and tired of missing the last train
I'd been leading a life on a ball and a chain
Allmost got used to missing that last train
But boy in my daydreams you're allready mine
and i'm finishing the last bottle of Solitary wine
Over the years i learned how to drink my wine alone
Some folks might think i've got a heart of stone
Been crying my eyes out, out on my own
Sometimes i wished i had a heart of stone
But all of a sudden you were all over my mind
I saw you wake up with that smile
I'm finishing the last bottle of Solitary wine
I'd had enough of wasting my chances
I'd had enough of missed romances
Allways a victim of the wrong circomstances
No no more missed romances
Cause all of a sudden you were all over my mind
Boy in my daydreams you're allready mine
and i'm finishing the last bottle of Solitary wine
the last bottle of Solitary wine
the very last bottle
Track Name: Two Puppies
I'm sitting by the window in the dark
and i'm feeling sad and weary
life can be so hard
how i wished i was two puppies
i'd play together in the yard
He's staring at the sealing in the dark
Outside the little dogs are playing
he can hear them bark
If he could only be those puppies
he'd play together in the yard
Across the streat a boy comes out the door
The girl who's staring out her window
sees what she's been looking for
They used to wish they were two puppies
... now they're not lonely anymore
Track Name: Meantime
Snow kept falling like feathers
and a feather fell upon the snow
and i wished upon that feather in the snow
that i could be the girl that you would like to get to know
But in the meantime
oh in that mean time
another took my place
and stole your heart away
now some mean meantime is all that remains
I went to the yard of inspiration
to pick a song to sing to you
and i chose the sweetest words to make that song fit to you
and i just hoped that you would like it too
But in the meantime...
I saw a shooting star up in the heavens
and i called your name as it passed by
and i believed that shooting star would catch you eye
cause at the same time you would look up at the sky
But in the meantime...
I used to say i'm naieve but i don't mind
Well i guess i'm done with that i guess i'm done with that
i'm done with that i'm done with that!
Cause in the meantime, oh in that mean meantime
another took my place and stole it all away
i want that mean meantime to go away
go away
go
