Big In Japan

Winter's cityside, crystal bits of snowflakes
All around my head and in the wind
I had no illusions that I'd ever find
A glimpse of summer's heatwaves in your eyes
You did what you did to me
Now it's history I see
Here's my comeback on the road again
Things will happen while they can
I will wait here for my man tonight
It's easy when your big in Japan

When you're big in Japan, tonight
Big in Japan, be tight
Big in Japan, where the Eastern Sea's so blue
Big in Japan, alright
Pay, then I'll sleep by your side
Things are easy when you're big in Japan...

Neon on my naked skin
Passing silhouettes
Of strange illuminated mannequins
Shall I stay here at the Zoo
Or shall I go and change my point of view
For other ugly scenes
You did what you did to me
Now it's history I see...
Things will happen while they can
I will wait here for my man tonight
It's easy when you're big in Japan...

Sounds Like A Melody

It's a trick of my mind
Two faces bathing in the screenlight
She's so soft and warm in my arms
I tune it into the scene
My hand are resting on her shoulders
When we're dancing away for a while
Oh, we're moving, we're falling, we step into the fire
By the hour of the wolf in a midnight dream
There's no reason to hurry, just start that brand new story
Set it alight, we're head over heels in love
Head over heels

The ringing of your laughter
It sounds like a melody
To once forbidden places
We'll go for a while

It's the definite show
Our shadows resting in the moonlight
It's so clear and bright in your eyes
It's the touch of your sighs
My lips are resting on your shoulder
When we're moving so soft and slow
We need the extasy, the jelousy, the comedy of love
Like the Cary Grants and Kellys once before
Give me more tragedy, more harmony and phantasy, my love
And set it alight, just starting that satellite
Set it alight

Sensations

Listen to the news, changes are coming soon
Atlantic engineers and cities in the moon
You better look across the ocean, tell me what you see
The southern cross explodes into the colours of the sea
Mighty maomoondog skips across the waves
Kick the door and hit the shore and be somebody else
Supersonic landscapes are melting in your hair
Bubblegum comediens planting skylarks in the air

Here we go with the new sensation
We're on every station
Such a kind of a legend to turn you on
Dig that rhythm, genie and listen to the voice of the dolphins

Listen to your radio...

All across the planet, politicians tremble
Continental sister's rocking with the liquid gambler
Now the time is here, now it's coming true
The enigmatic extasy is overwhelming you
Acrobats and comets are streaking by
40.000 sirens are wailing at the sky
Innersexual circuits are cruising without fear
All inviting you for partytiming here

That's the start of the new sensation..
...dig that band
Listen to me, listen to the voice of the dolphin
You better return to the sea
Listen to his majesty
You better return to the sea
You better return to me...

The Mysteries Of Love

All I want is you, don't you know that
Forever loving you, don't you know that it's true
I'm leaving you tonight but don't listen if they say
That we'll never meet again in the land of make believe
We cannot lose the race, breaking the secret spells
They put on us, my love
We're far out of their reach, a million years ahead
They never understand
The mysteries of love

Here's the mysteries of love
Give your body to the mysteries
Tear down your uniforms
Here's the mysteries of love

All I want to be, don't you know it
All we wanna be is free like the birds of the sea
We kiss the last good byes and are sailing with a smile
'Cross the iron borderline that butterflies despise
We cannot lose at all
Breaking the secret spells they put on us, my love
Forever out of reach, a million dreams ahead
They'll never understand
The mysteries of love

Lassie Come Home

Lonely boy
Gazing on the afternoon
People drifting cross the surface of the twilight day
There's a little yellow man
Standing by the railway station
Painting portraits on the brickwalls
Of Billie Holloway
Lovely lady smile,
Dance, my dear,
I'm only operating on Lassie come home
This was authentic you, she spoke,
This was authentic you who blew me cold
She had no chance to realize
It hit her straight between the eyes
So I've been told

In the park, she's giving out some photographs
On which she's giving out some photos
Of what she hands around
They videoed a ghost tonite,
She said before I turned it off
It rode an orange paper bike
And left without a sound
Keep on riding, Sir, open up the door
And shout it out
Lassie come home, come home
This was authentic you, she spoke,
This was authentic you who blew, who blew me cold
I had no chance to realize
It hit her straight between the eyes
So I've been told

Lonely girl
Dancing in a music hall
Lightning struck her silver starship
And turned it into stone
And now she's falling all the time
Into that void beyond her grey eyes
Somewhere a telephone is ringing
But nobody's at home
Hello, junkie sweetheart
Listen now, this is your captain calling
Your captain is dead
Keep on riding, Sir, open up the door
And shout it out, shout it out
Shout it out
Shout it out
Lassie come home
This is your captain calling
We're falling all the time
All the time
Lassie come home

Jerusalem

Standing on the empty bridge
Watching river's waves go by
Feeling mellow, lighting a cigarette
Silver moon floats through the night
Eris, princess of the isles
Disperse your sparkling traces
Lead me on to the house of love
Where the gods may turn my eyes

To Jerusalem we pray, it's time to meet you there
Let's take love to Jerusalem, oh yeah
Let's take love

You might be the one I'm waiting for
I think we've met somewhere for sure
Chasing shadows leaves you feeling blue
This situation needs a cure
New assassins, new messiahs
Keepers of the balanced law
Strangest lovers of the fire
Which ignates the halo of our souls

To Jerusalem we pray, it's time to meet you there
Let's take love to Jerusalem, oh yeah
Let's take love

Big yellow cadillac, carry me back home
On glory roads of pure delight
We head out for the stars...

Dance With Me

When the heat of light melts into the speeding time
When the king returns to the ivory cityside
Let the Magnet Mages wave the signals
Flashing oh so fast
Then you'll meet me there under the moonshine
In a lover's heaven, we'll keep our promises at last
In a lover's heaven we'll forget the past

Do you want to dance with me
Through one of those lonely nights
It's more than a dream
Maybe we're reaching the gardens of delight
Do you want to dance with me
Through one of those lonely nights
It's more than a dream
Maybe we're drowning in empires of delight

In the stardust dawn underneath the crystal roofs
Where the solar boys are playing games
They never lose
Where the sailors are swaying
Through the lightdomes shining in the sky
There you'll meet me, darling, anyway
In a lover's heaven, we'll keep our promises at last
In a lover's heaven we'll forget the past

For A Million

Oh, I love to dance
Under an alien sun
Along the dunes with you, I kiss you in the sand
We give so that we live
Beside the sleepy snakes
They dream of you and me when will they ever end

For a million years they dream
For a million years they dream
And the fog conceals and hides and eats our souls
Before they open up their eyes again
How far we'll be
Remember me

Won't stop loving you, although it seems to be
Our time is running out, I'm leaving you behind
No matter what they say, we'd never meet again
Our love is bigger than our lives

And we know that yesterday
The moon was brown
And that today it is black
And that tomorrow it is red
And we know that when we go to the sun
The moon comes along
(hello there!)
And the cows in the pasture graze
And we know that we know what we know
Is it truth?

A Victory Of Love

Waiting for a change in the weather
I'm waiting for a shift in the air
Could we get it together, ever
Hoping for your return
Hoping for your sweet, sweet return...

Hello, is this heaven calling
Hello, hello, is somebody there,
She must be somewhere
And then she says hello, hello, hello
She's really an angel
She stands in the sunshine
She's closing her eyes, she starting to dream
She's pulling the strings
She's dreaming a strange dream
Where nothing is grey
Then she takes me away
And she's pulling the strings
When she's playing with love
She's playing with love...

Counting, I count every second
And I'm standing
I stand in the rain, I walk up that lane
Which leads to the sunshine
She stands in the sunshine
She's closing her eyes
Then she takes me away...

The Jet Set

This is the time, now gimme that beat
Feel how the rhythm grips your feet
Kitty baby, take my hand
She's like a devil, heaven sent
I'm in her arms and she's in mine
Maybe we make the film on time
Sitting in the 15th row
Oh baby, baby, I love you so

We are the jet set society
We are the jet set and that means liberty, liberty
The jet set society
We are the jet set set, we are the jet set set
Society

We're on the run, we know where to go
We got the tickets for the midnight show
These nights are burning out so fast
Hop on the beam, you won't be last
The Russians seem to be that way
We love them like we love D. Kaye
We need no money, we get it for free
We are the high-high-high society

We are the jet set, hop on the beam
Shine on, society, shine on, liberty
Shine on, luxury, shine on, society

Streets are full of love and fear
This could be the final year
Enrico's dead but still okay
We dance the streets, feeling well
If she's a liar, I'm her lover
If she's a priestess, I'm her cover
If she's a lady, I'm her man
If she's a man, I'll do what I can

Let's go to the moon, let's go to the moon
Dig that kind of liberty and let's go to the moon..
Come and join the institution

Red Rose

Little girl, do you know what you are, do you know
This baby's gonna be a star, do you know
A teenangel empress from Hollywood highs
With wonderful eyes
Your beautiful, put on your stratoblue suit
I know that your in the mood to fly
We got the power to make it come true
The most exciting news

We'll be together till the end of time
And when you smile, red rose, it's just like blue sunshine
Oh, we're ascending and we'll never die
Cause when we kiss, red rose, we're changing 6 to 9
It's revolution time
When 6 turns into 9

Move over, closer to my fantasies, pretty baby
We're standing at the turn of the centuries
The daughter of time is dancing tonite
Little dreamer, you're the d.j. of your soul
C'mon, lets swing to that rock and roll
The sweetest arrows of desire will set this dance on fire

Above the city of the million moons
We'll reach the palace of the sun
Do what you will shall be our destiny
We will unfold the secrets of the new Jerusalem

Romeos

There's a boy
With a little black dog
There's a boy
With a little black dog
And he looks
At his watch
For a while
And the falling years
Wash away his make up
And the falling years
Wash away his make up
Just like rain
On the fading snow

He's a lonesome streetside Romeo
You can see him from your window tonite
This world's a devided place, you know
He's awaiting you

We're all lonesome streetside Romeos
You can see us from your window tonite
We all change our points of view
Sometimes
We're awaiting you
All the boys
Are locked in a fortress
All the girls
Are locked in a fortress
Just because
It's a crime
It could be,
It could be
Flesh and blood
In iron and steel
Flesh and blood
In iron and steel
Just because
It's a crime
It could be,
It could be
We're all lonesome...

Summer Rain

World without a breeze
Heartbeat of the heat above the harbour
Lazy day lies dazed upon the shelf
Atomic lizards lick at the blaze of the light that last forever
No move in the solid sky, no gleaming metal out of
The breathtaking blue

My golden circus girls all sailed away
The lion tamers are no longer due to play
Whoever breaks the seven seals and lets the angry angels free
I do not know, just waiting here
For summer rain
Or anything else in the world

Prophet hold your head up
Into a cluster of bees and listen
Love of my life, here is all our honey
Yes, we can change the world, together
And if we're still invited to walk in this party
I'd go for a saucerful of secrets or more
But last thing I heard of was, that god had left the skies
For a brand new universe, and here is what he said

My golden circus girls all sailed away
The lion tamers are no longer due to play
Whoever breaks the seven seals and lets the angry angels free
I do not care, just waiting over there
For summer rain
For summer rain
I'm singing in the rain

What a glorious feeling
I'm happy again
Just cool rain...

Forever Young

Let's dance in style, lets dance for a while
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you going to drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don't have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music's for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders we're getting in tune
The music's played by the madmen

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
Why don't they stay young

It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
Youth is like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures couldn't happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams are swinging out of the blue
We let them come true
