Lyrics

Find my way
I have to find my way
One fine day
I’ll finally know the meaning of life

So many twists and turns
So many bruises and burns
A rocky road to climb
Through the mighty wheel of time

So many vows to take
So many wishes to make
So many candles to burn
So many things still to learn

And when we reach the end of the road
And lay down our load to die
We can only hope to be proud of the things
We did and the things we tried
Looking back on the journey we’ve made
I just wish that we like what we see
That some of our hopes and loves are fulfilled
And some of our thoughts are set free

Find my way
I have to find my way
One fine day
I’ll finally know the meaning of life (2x)

Find my way
I have to find my way
One fine day I hope I can say
I have found my way

Below are the lyrics to the songs on Crosspath, in their order of appearance:

The Food is Good

Why do we bother to grow up at all
Take all these pains to become so tall
Bigger and fatter, stuffed and obese
What is the trap here, tell me please
Why do we sweat to earn more and more
Become corrupted to the core
It’s because money is mute
And the food is good

It’s so hard to decide what’s enough
So we gather more and more of the stuff
And we’re running faster faster each day
‘Cause we need to increase our pay
It’s all because are addicted to fame
The need to spend and have more of the same
It’s our addiction to thrill
And weakness of will

I’m sure we’ll be happier by wanting less
‘Cause less is more and diminishes stress
And slowing down the pace of life
Will leave behind a lot of struggle and strife
But it’s unlikely that we’ll change our ways
So I am fearful that the problem remains
‘Cause money is mute
And the food is good
Money is power
And fame a hot shower (4x)

Sleepy Song

Lie down lie down
Tired little child
It’s been a fine day
That ends with a smile

Close your eyes now
I’ll sing you to sleep
It’s but a small song
Nothing too deep

Silent now silent now
Safe in your bed
Night is arriving
In your little head

Quiet now quiet now
Don’t sing along
‘Cause words do not matter
In this sleepy little song

Good night good night
Sleep little child
Tomorrow is waiting
Begins with a smile
Sleepy now sleepy now
Don’t sing along
‘Cause words do not matter
In this sleepy little song

Crosspath

Coming across my footsteps
In a journey to the past
Wondering who I was
When I was passing through here last
Wondering who I will be
When I will pass through here again
What were my ambitions when
I was a younger man

Did I live in this city
did I have this home
Had I already found your love
Or was I still alone?
Couldn’t see what was coming
What was in store for me
Nobody knows on the crosspath
Where his footsteps will lead

Walking the crosspath
Where my former footsteps lie
What was I feeling
At the time I was passing by
Who will I be when
I will be passing through this place once again

Meeting myself on the crosspath
where different times overlay
I am reliving the moment
When I travelled in the other way
Back to the future
I don’t know when
But I will be back on the crosspath
To meet myself once again
Walking the crosspath…

Sitting on a Seesaw

I’m sitting on a seesaw
On the way down
On a seesaw ooh
Close to the ground

Far beyond the tipping point
Where things are getting out of joint
You are high up in the air
So you will get the better share
While I’m on the rebound
Close to a breakdown
Staring me into the face

Sitting on a seesaw
You keep me down
On a seesaw ooh
Hitting the ground

I don’t want to take all the blame
You surely need to lower your claim
But I don’t want to bring you down
And seesaw to another round
Leaving my seat now
Would mean that you drop down
And fall with your face in the dirt

Sitting on a seesaw
On the way down
On a seesaw ooh
Hitting the ground

If I go up, you must come down
And the other way around (4x)

If You Go

If you go before I go
There is something I want you to know
All your stuff will make a dead weight
But I can’t bring myself to throw it away
Where to begin, I don’t have a clue
‘cause every little thing will remind me of you

Your favourite chair, your side of the bed
The baseball cap that never leaves your head
That little car that we no longer drive
Family pictures that make me cry
I cannot live among souvenirs
So live a little longer if you please

But if I am the first to go
There is something I want you to know
You must keep in the second degree
Every little thing that reminds you of me
Don’t throw away the things I hold dear
‘cause you need to love me for many more years

A Girl Called Europe

We are all waiting in single file
To catch a glimpse of her
But she refuses to show her face
Acting like some mystery flirt

We are all hoping for something nice
Some little favour from her
Blink of an eye or wave of a hand
But she seems little concerned

We are all courting a girl called Europe
But she doesn’t want to love us back
Under the spell of a seducer called Europe
But there is nothing we can expect

Better watch out for a girl called Europe
She doesn’t favour you
Not a kind word let alone a small kiss
She‘ll never be true to you

We are all courting a girl called Europe
But she doesn’t want to love us back
Under the spell of a seducer called Europe
But there is nothing we can expect

Love is Work

You think that love is something that comes free
That it will cost you little energy
But it will not just happen to you
A lot depends on the work that you do
Love is work (2x)

It may have fallen like a star from the sky
But you must nurture it or else it will die
Don’t just sit there and play with my heart
Careful now, you’ll tear it apart

So baby baby let’s do some work
Our love must be shaken and stirred
Don’t tell me you don’t have a clue
It all depends on the work that you do

So let us do the labour of love
Of that work there is never enough
Don’t you think it simply happens to you
A lot depends on the work that you do
Love is work (3x)

Silent Over You

Silent over you
I cannot find the words so I will be
Silent over you
Love can go without them so I will be
Silent over you (2x)

On a single string
I am playing a silent song
You can’t hear me sing
But you can deeply feel my love
Silent over you (2x)

Look into my eyes and you will see
That I am true to you
Catch me in my flight and hold me down
So I’ll be close to you
Dududududu

Look into my eyes and you will see
That I am true to you
Catch me in my flight and hold me down
So I’ll be close to you

Silent over you
I cannot find the words so I will be
Silent over you
Love can go without them so I will be
Silent over you (2x)

The Iron Lady

IMG_1957

I‘ve been living on an ancient boat
It’s a miracle that she’s still afloat
I’ve loved and hated her both passionately
So much for my romantic fantasy
She’s stolen my money, she’s eaten my time
I worked my ass off far beyond my prime
The lady gets younger while the captain grows old
But now she’s ready to rock ’n roll

I’ve often wondered how it could be
The iron lady hit on me and I fell for her
Though I didn’t want to see the truth
She and I have travelled through the years
She has carried me through the seas to my destiny
Wherever that might be
Pompadada Pompadada dom etc.

I’ve often wondered how it could be
The iron lady hit on me and I fell for her
Though I didn’t want to know the truth
She and I have travelled through the years
She has carried me through the seas to my destiny
Wherever that might be

I have been married to an ancient ship
A long time since it left the building slip
We’ve virtually grown into each other by now
So part of me is iron and wood somehow
She’s spent all my money, she’s wasted my time
I’ve tried to please her far beyond my prime
The lady gets younger while the captain grows old
But now we’re ready to rock ’n roll (3x)

No More

You can go on shouting but I’m not gonna listen no more
Seems like it’s forever since we started on our little civil war
I have had enough, please go away and shut the door
Can’t you see it’s over
Don’t want to forgive you no more

You can cry your eyes out but I cannot stand the sight no more
Cannot turn the clock back and continue like we did before
I’m not the fighting kind, but you are always out to settle some score
Can’t you see it’s over
Don’t want to fight you no more

You blackmail me to take you back
Put my soul on an emotional rack
It’s clear as ice that you are seeking revenge
You say you love me but I don’t think that’s true
Instead you plan another turn of the screw
But at least I know I don’t love you back

You act in desperation but I do not sympathize no more
Cannot turn the clock back and continue like we did before
I’m not the fighting kind, but you are always out to settle some score
Can’t you see it’s over
Don’t want to fight you no more (3x)
