LYRICA:


1. Mr. Sandman

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream
Make it the cutest that I've ever seen
Give her two lips like roses in clover
Then tell her that my lonesome nights are over

Mister Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream
Make it the cutest that I've ever seen
Give her the word that I'm not a rover
Then tell her that my lonesome nights are over

Mister Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

Mister Sandman, bring us a dream
Give her a pair of eyes with a congeal of gleam
Give her a lonely heart like Harlehatschi
And not so wavy hair like Liberatschi

Mister Sandman, someone to hold
Would be so peachy before we're to old
So please turn on your magic bean
Mister Sandman, brings us
Please, please, please
Mister Sandman, bring us a dream
Yeah...



2. Surfin' U.S.A.

If everybody had an ocean
Across the U. S. A.
Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like Californi-a
You'd seem 'em wearing their baggies
Huarachi sandals too
A bushy bushy blonde hairdo
Surfin' U. S. A.

You'd catch 'em surfin' at Del Mar
Ventura County line
Santa Cruz and Trestle
Australia's Narabine
All over Manhattan
And down Doheny Way

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S. A.

We'll all be planning that route
We're gonna take real soon
We're waxing down our surfboards
We can't wait for June
We'll all be gone for the summer
We're on surfari to stay
Tell the teacher we're surfin'
Surfin' U. S. A.

Haggerties and Swamies
Pacific Palisades
San Anofree and Sunset
Redondo Beach L. A.
All over La Jolla
At Waimia Bay

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S. A.

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S. A.

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S. A.



3. Bright Eyes

Fool just another
fool just another
...

I've been waiting
for signs of god

create - enslaved - behaved -
everything is out of control

Leave me alone
isolation bears hope
there's something else waiting
a promised destiny
freezing me
I feel restless and low
these days full of sadness
had joyfully changed
into fear

My freakshow will start tonight
don't miss the right time

Ref.:
Bright eyes
blinded by fear of life
no Merlin is by my side

everything is out of control
everything is out of control
in my future plans
everything is out of control
noone's left to hurt
everything is out of control
sorrow's gone away

Broken memories
walking upstairs
step by step
I see the whole world burning
the poet dies in Neverland
how it burns

Hey, mother stubborn
I really hate you
if you say yes I will say no
ashes to ashes
but dust won't be dust
if you go there
I will go back

Ref.:
Bright eyes
blinded by fear of life
betrayed by sunrise
bright eyes
blinded by fear of life
no Merlin is by my side

Hey, father stubborn
you're ying
and I'm young
I feel alone
who really cares
Born into ashes
to lose all the games
with a smiling face

Ref.:
Bright eyes
blinded by fear of life
and dark dragons rise
bright eyes
blinded by fear of life
no Merlin is by my side

So I sit still in my room, today
winter's here
in summer's season
shall I say
I was wrong
if I'm right
farewell to my last hope



4. Lord of the Rings

There are signs on the ring
Which make me feel so down
There's one to enslave all rings
To find them all in time
And drive them into darkness
Forever they'll be bound
Three for the Kings
Of the elves high in light
Nine to the mortal
Which cry

I'll keep the ring for sorrow
I'll keep the ring till I die
I'll keep the ring for sorrow
I'll keep the ring till I die
Slow down and I sail on the river
Slow down and I walk to the hill
Slow down and I sail on the river
Slow down and I walk to the hill

And there's no way out
Mordor!

Dark land under Sauron's spell
Threatened a long time
Threatened a long time
Seven rings to the dwarves
In their halls made of stone
Into the valley
I feel down
One ring to the dark lord's hand
Sitting on his throne
In the land so dark
Where I have to go
I'll keep the ring
I'll keep the ring
I'll keep the ring
Till I die...
Slow down and I sail on the river
Slow down and I walk to the hill

Lord of the rings



5. The Wizard

He was the wizard of a thousand kings
And I chanced to meet him one night wandering
He told me tales and he drank my wine
Me and my magic man kinda feeling fine

He had a cloak of gold and eyes of fire
And as he spoke I felt a deep desire
To free the world of its fear and pain
And help the people to feel free again

Why don't we listen to... the voices in our hearts
Cause then I know we'll find... we're not so far apart
Everybody's got to be happy... everyone should sing
For we know the joy of life... the peace that love can bring

So spoke the Wizard in his mountain home
The vision of his wisdom means we'll never be alone
And now I will dream of my magic night
And the million silver stars that guide me with their light



6. Spread Your Wings

Sammy was low,
just watching the show,
over and over again.
He knew it was time,
he'd made up his mind,
to leave his dead life behind.

His boss said to him
boy, you'd better begin
to get those crazy notions
right out of your head
Sammy who do you think that you are?
You should have been sweeping,
at the emerald bar.

spread your wings and fly away,
fly away, far away.
Spread your little wings and fly away
fly away, far away.
Pull yourself together,
'cause you know you should do better,
that's because you're a free man.

He spends his evenings alone,
in his hotelroom.
Keeping his thoughts to himself,
he'd be leaving soon.
Wishing he was miles and miles away,
nothing in this world, nothing,
would make him stay.

Since he was small,
had no luck at all,
nothing came easy to him.
Now it was time,
he'd made up his mind,
this could be my last change

His boss said to him
now listen boy, you're always dreaming,
you got no real ambition,
you won't get worried for.
Sammy, boy don't you know who you are?
why can't you be happy,
at the emerald bar?

(So honey) spread you wings and fly away,
fly away, far away.
spread your little wings and fly away,
fly away, far away.
pull yourself together,
'cause you know you should do better,
that's because your a free man.
come on honey (fly with me)...



7. Mordred's Song

I've lost my battle before it starts
My first breath wasn't done
My spirit's sunken deep into the ground
Why am I alone
I can hear my heartbeat
Silence's all around

See hate will rise
And don't come closer
Fear your child
Born with a king's heart
But fate fooled me
And changed my cards
Noone asked if I want it
If I like it

Chorus:
Pain inside is rising
I am the fallen one
A figure in an old game
No joker's on my side
I plunged into misery
I'll turn off the light
And murder the dawn
Turn off the light
And murder the dawn

Nothing else but laughter is around me
Forevermore
Noone can heal me
Nothing can save me
Noone can heal me
I've gone beyond the truth
It's just another lie
Wash away the blood on my hands
My father's blood
In agony we're unified

I never wanted to be
What they told me to be
Fulfill my fate then I'll be free
God knows how long I tried to change fate

(Solo)

Chorus

(Solo)

I plunged into misery
I'll turn off the light
And murder the dawn
Turn off the light
And murder the dawn!!



8. Black Chamber

I am lost in the black chamber
There's no way to turnin back
The still line in a different world
It takes me down forevermore
And death would be so sweet
A dancing gnome in an empty room
A cruel and painful game
I'm possessed by the old creature
Who had planned all
To take my soul
Too late for me
In my hands
It lies I thought
But I failed
Now he's in me

My soul is lost
In his black chamber

I'm gone



9. The Bard's Song - In the Forest (Live)

Now you all know
The bards and their songs
When hours have gone by
I'll close my eyes
In a world far away
We may meet again
But now hear my song
About the dawn of the night
Let's sing the bards' song

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

There's only one song
Left in my mind
Tales of a brave man
Who lived far from here
Now the bard songs are over
And it's time to leave
No one should ask you for the name Of the one
Who tells the story

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow all will be known
And you're not alone
So don't be afraid
In the dark and cold
'Cause the bards' songs will remain
They all will remain

In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind
These songs of hobbits, dwarves and men
And elves
Come close your eyes
You can see them too

11. A Past and Future Secret

Oh, I haven't been here for a while
in blindness and decay
the circle's been closed, now

My song of the end
I've seen it all

Listen crowd I'll tell you everything
Though I have to say I don't know much
Talking about a past and future secret
Most called him once and future king

Far back in the past I saw his ending
Long before it started I knew his name
He's the one who took the sword
out of the stone
It's how that ancient tale began
I hear it in the cold winds

My song of the end
I had seen it in my dreams
my song of the end
I can't stop the darkening clouds

I feel cold
when I cry out for the bark
take him back to Avalon
dwell on for a new age
so long sleep well my friend
take him back to Avalon
I will wait and guard
the future king's crown

My song of the end
it was nice but now it's gone
my song of the end
it was fixed the whole time
my song of the end
I saw it all



12. To France

Taking on water,
Sailing a restless sea
>From a memory,
A fantasy.
The wind carries
Into white water,
Far from the islands.
Don't you know you're

[Chorus:]
Never going to get to France.
Mary, Queen of Chance, will they find you?
Never going to get to France.
Could a new romance ever bind you?

Walking on foreign ground,
Like a shadow,
Roaming in far off
Territory.
Over your shoulder,
Stories unfold, you're
Searching for sanctuary.
You know you're

[Repeat Chorus]

I see a picture
By the lamp's flicker.
Isn't it strange how
Dreams fade and shimmer?

[Repeat Chorus]

I see a picture
By the lamp's flicker.
Isn't it strange how
Dreams fade and shimmer?

[Repeat Chorus]

Never going to get to France.
Never going to....

Never going to get to France.
Never going to....

Never going to get to France.
Never going to....
