Lyrics

Cross That Line

Girl, I wanna tell you why
Why my world is yours, my heart is yours
’cause you make me feel alive

And I wanna tell you why
Why I care for you, like I shouldn’t do
When I really know, you’re not mine

Oh it feels so good, shivering inside me
When I see your smile, softly coming to me
And when I hear your voice saying that you need me
Tonight you’ll be here by my side

Girl, I wanna tell you why
Why I miss you so, even though
You’re right beside of me

And I wanna tell you why
Why I say to you, that I want you
I hope you want me too

Oh It feels so good, shivering inside me
When I see your smile, softly coming to me
And when I hear your voice saying that you need me tonight

Girl, I’ll make you mine, make you cross that line
You don’t need no sign to cross that line
Let me bring your heart, to a brand new start
You and I will make a brand new start
Because, you will be so fine, never left behind
You will never ever feel left behind
You need no sign to cross that line

Now I wanna tell you why
Why I look at you, the way I do
I’m blown away by your smile

And I wanna tell you why
Why I hope you do, love me to
When I sing this song for you

Girl, I’ll make you mine, make you cross that line
You don’t need no sign to cross that line
Let me bring your heart, to a brand new start
You and I will make a brand new start
Because, you will be so fine, never left behind
You will never ever feel left behind
You need no sign to cross that line

Girl, I’ll make you mine, make you cross that line
You don’t need no sign to cross that line
Let me bring your heart, to a brand new start
You and I will make a brand new start
Because, you will be so fine, never left behind
You will never ever feel left behind
Girl, I’ll make you mine, make you cross that line

I Don’t Know How

I remember when you set me free
I recall it wasn’t ment to be
But I don’t know how
We could have stayed together

I remember how you cried that night
I wish I could have been there just to hold you tight
But I don’t know how
Things just when on and on and on ….

So the time went by and I don’t why
I never told you why I did it
But I guess you know that it hurt me so
And I regret it, yeah

I wish you could live along here with me
I wish you could be around me to see
I wish I could do it all again, take away your pain
Believe me, but I don’t know how
I never had to give up when you set me free
’cause you were always here in my heart with me
It was you and only you, I should’ve held on to
believe when I tell you now, I don’t know how

Now it’s time for me to leave behind
The thoughts that I have kept in my mind
I’ve lived to learn
that things will only get better

As you told me, when I was a boy
Life is filled with happiness, sorrow and joy
I’m sure you see
I remember the things you told me

And I promise you now, I will live somehow
and bring the message that you gave me
Pass along those words, even though it hurts
I won’t regret it, yeah

I wish you could live along here with me
I wish you could be around me to see
I wish I could do it all again, take away your pain
Believe me, but I don’t know how
I never had to give up when you set me free
’cause you were always here in my heart with me
It was you and only you, I should’ve held on to
believe when I tell you now, I don’t know how

Need You To Be Mine

I remember till’ the day, that I die
When I met you, you should be mine

When I look into your eyes, I can see
What it is you mean to me

Girl, I need you to be mine
Now and forever
I need you here by my side, yeah
When I look at you, I wish
I could live forever
I don’t wanna leave behind the thing we have, oh no no no

Though it’s hard for me to say what I feel
I wanna show you it’s for real

When I look into your eyes, I still see
What it is you do to me – yeeaaah ….

Girl, I need you to be mine
Now and forever
I need you here by my side, yeah
When I look at you, I wish
I could live forever
I don’t wanna leave behind the thing we have, no no

Did I ever tell you why I need you by my side?
Did I ever tell you why I cry?
Did I ever tell you, all the things I leave behind?
The things that makes me who I am – yeah yeah yeah …..

Girl, I need you to be mine
Now and forever
I need you here by my side, yeah
When I look at you, I wish
I could live forever
I don’t wanna leave behind the thing we have

Sleeping Mama

Sleeping Mama
you had to leave me, I know it hurt you so
And it was hard for me, to let you go

Sleeping Mama
We didn’t choose to let it go this way
We ran out of time, before we knew

I believe you’re telling me, I must be strong
I believe you’re here with me, to keep me carry on
No matter what I do, you’re with me all the way
And that’s how it stays

Sleeping Mama
I wish you could hear me, when I’m telling you
God I loved you so, I’m sure you know

Sleeping Mama
There’s just so many things, I would like to say
If I could bring you back to me again

I believe you’re telling me, I must be strong
I believe you’re here with me, to keep me carry on
No matter what I do, you’re with me all the way
And that’s, and that’s how it stays

I know – you see me
You know – I see you too
I know – you see me
You know – I see you too

I believe you’re telling me, I must be strong
I believe you’re here with me, to keep me carry on
No matter what I do, you’re with me all the way
And that’s how it stays

Don’t You Know

Don’t you
Don’t you know that I would climb the highest mountain just
to reach you at the top

And don’t you
Don’t you know that I would honestly be true to you
when others seems to stop

Don’t you know that I will please you
Don’t you know that I will treat you nice
Don’t you know that I will give you more
of that love you’re dreaming of…

Don’t you know that I will please you
Don’t you know that I will treat you nice
Don’t you know that I will give you more
of that love you’re dreaming of…

Don’t you
Don’t you think that we could be a happy family
with children all around

And wont you
wont you please give me a second chance to prove to you
that we are meant to be

Don’t you know that I will please you
Don’t you know that I will treat you nice
Don’t you know that I will give you more
of that love you’re dreaming of…

This time I promise you
It will be the way you choose
’cause you know I love you

Don’t you know that I will please you
Don’t you know that I will treat you nice
Don’t you know that I will give you more
of that love you’re dreaming of…

Don’t you know that I will please you
Don’t you know that I will treat you nice
Don’t you know that I will give you more
of that love you’re dreaming of…

Until We’re Together

I kind of woke in misery
Thinking how will tomorrow be
Feeling cold and lonely

Get some coffee and a cigarette
The morning hasn’t broken yet
No sun, no light, no nothing

I kick grass, hangin’ out all day
Cut a sixpack, just trying to stay on top
at least until’ we’re together

Spent alone this Saturday
Yesterday’s so far away
I see your lips on my pillow

Your fragrance hanging in the room
Reminds me that you left too soon
Call me now, I’m dying

I kick grass, hangin’ out all day
Cut a sixpack, just trying to stay on top
at least until’ we’re together
Just a thought from a clever mind
A thought that needs to be redefined
Then again, it seems to be gone forever

Caught in the eye of a hurricane
Desperate looking for another lane
Confused, so misled, on my own

Should I rely on the love of mine?
Should I expect to be left behind?
Growing doubt, going low, left alone

I kick grass, hangin’ out all day
Cut a sixpack, just trying to stay on top
at least until we’re together
Just a thought from a clever mind
A thought that needs to be redefined
Then again, it seems to be gone forever

Dizzy state of mind
Just a thought from a clever mind
Dizzy state of mind

Holding On Again (Anni)

Anni I dont how to say that I care
Anni I don’t know how to show what I feel
And I would like you to be shure that I’m here
I want you to know the feeling that I’m near

Way to long, on and on
You and I forgot to live along
Now it’s time for holding on again
Moving on, on and on
You and I must learn to live as one
Now it’s time for holding on again

Anni I picture you inside my mind
Bringing together things we left behind
I see you forever staying here by my side
I see us together as one of a kind

Way to long, on and on
You and I forgot to live along
Now it’s time for holding on again
Moving on, on and on
You and I must learn to live as one
Now it’s time for holding on again

Way to long, on and on
You and I forgot to live along
Now it’s time for holding on again – time for holding on
Moving on, on and on
You and I must learn to live as one
Now it’s time for holding on again, yeah

Waiting to long
You and I forgot to live along
Now it’s time for holding on again
Moving on, on and on
You and I must learn to live as one
Now it’s time for holding on again

Lonely Soldier

Well, I walk on this empty road
With my guns ready to explode oh oh
They send me out to this desert place
With no regrets and no way to retrace

But tonight, I’m not ready to die tonight
Not tonight, uh I’m not ready to die tonight

I got a family
Mum and Dad and little She oh oh
I wish it never was meant to be
This will end and we’ll never meet again

‘Cause tonight, I’m not ready to die tonight
Not tonight, uh I’m not ready to die tonight

I’m a lonely soldier, I’m a lonely soldier
I’m a lonely soldier

A drummer rolls a steady beat
While a young man is brought down to his knees
They shot him dead, how can it be
They kill for nothing, why can’t they just let him be

‘Cause tonight, I’m not ready to die tonight
I’m not ready to die tonight

I’m a lonely soldier, I’m a lonely soldier
I’m a lonely soldier

I see fraiden faces behind wicket doors
I see children lying dead on the lower floors
The silence seems so scary
A lot more that my mind can really carry

Hypnotized

I don’t know what’s on my mind
I don’t know what’s left behind
All I know is what you’re leading me to see
And it feels so right

Moving closer, I’m alive
Meditation, flying high
My defense is weak, I’m a Puppet in your hand
Still it feels so right

You, you, you want me
To, to, to kiss you
Don’t say no go! (no go no go no go no)
You, you, you got me
On my knees
I’m in too deep, there’s no way out for me
I’m hypnotized by you

Trying harder to resist
Wonder why we ever kissed
Compromise myself, don’t believe in fate
But still it feels so right

You, you, you want me
To, to, to kiss you
Don’t say no go! (no go no go no go no)
You, you, you got me
On my knees
I’m in too deep, there’s no way out for me
I’m hypnotized by you

Now set me free
You don’t care about me
I’m hypnotized, I’m hypnotized

You, you, you want me
To, to, to kiss you
Don’t say no go! (no go no go no go no)
You, you, you got me
On my knees
I’m in too deep, there’s no way out for me
I’m hypnotized by you

You And I Are Meant To Be

It’s getting dark in the city
I walk around alone
I wonder why I act so silly
And ended up here, on my own

I can tell you’ve been crying
And it hurts me so
And I know I’ve been lying
But I just want you to know

I know, that to me
You and I are meant to be
Not alone but together
Lets keep in mind the day we met
I see no reason to regret
(That) You and I got together

As I walk across a byway
I wonder where you are tonight
Could it be you’re heading my way?
I gotta get it right

I’ve been waiting, I’ve been watching
Every move you make
I’ve been sitting at your doorstep
Now it’s more than I can take

I know, that to me
You and I are meant to be
Not alone but together
Lets keep in mind the day we met
I find no reason to forget
Why you and I got together – got together, yeah

I know, that to me
You and I are meant to be
Not alone but together
I know, that to me
You and I are meant to be
Not alone but together
Lets keep in mind the day we met
I see no reason to regret
Why you and I got together

Like Father Like Son

Like father, like son
To be loved by the only one
It’s a gift to believe
You’re holding on
When your father is gone

Like father, like son
He’s the one that we look upon
And the hard times will come
They all seems gone
When your father hang on

On and on you just fade away
Holding on to the dreams you made
Still believe in all the love he gave
Now it seems to fade away

Now, life will go on
Forgotten promises were left undone
You gotta live for today
At the end of your stay
Nothing’s left to portray

And soon you’ll be the one
To be loved, and to be looked upon
You’re the rock to hold on
His number one
So be a father for your son!

On and on you just fade away
Holding on to the dreams you made
Still believe in all the love he gave
Now it seems to fade away

On and on you just fade away
Holding on to the dreams you made
Still believe in all the love he gave
Now it seems to fade away

Like father, like son
To be loved by the only one
It’s a gift to believe
You’re holding on
When your father is gone

Evil Rumours

Evil rumours hit you like a hurricane
When simple egos play their silly game
Nothing you might say, would make ‘em go away
You gotta live with it, you’re not the on to blame

I can’t believe it’s true
Although I know everybody do
I see another motive in the picture
And I just wanna cry cry …..
I cry for you

Envy people, they try to break you down
Expose you all around to be a stupid clown
The more you fight it, the more they try to bring you down
Even though it hurts, you gotta stick around

Hold on to your dreams, make ‘em go your way
In the end you know you’re here to stay

I can’t believe it’s true
Although I know everybody do
I see another motive in the picture
And I just wanna cry cry ….
I cry for you
For you, cry for you

Hold on to your dreams, make ‘em go your way
Wipe away the fear, hold your head up high
in the end you know you’re here to stay
So just move on to another lane

I can’t believe it’s true
Although I know everybody do
I see another motive in the picture
And I just wanna cry cry ….
I cry for you
And I cry …..

Cry for you, cry for you, cry for you
