Track Name: The Secret Flame
THE SECRET FLAME

on this side of the line
we hide from paradise
and run to hell
patiently sip your wine
and shelter secret skin
and paint a rebel-yell

at this chance in time
we fear our heaven
and run like hell
make a wish and you will find
let old glory win
and shout a rebel-yell

so take hold of the flame
for the fire in your eyes
hold the secret flame
for the fire to rise

so give peace a chance
it's lurking in the night
sailing in the dark
lighten up and dance
a solitary soul
to catch a glowing spark

repeat chorus

communication breakdown
I've heard too many times
I can´t hold back
As the bell begins to chime
I feel the end is near
I know it seems so clear
my time is all used up
I know my time is up

so take hold of the flame
for the fire in your eyes
hold the secret flame
for the fire to rise
take hold of the flame
I paint it on the wall
hold the secret flame
can't you hear me call
can you hear me calling you?
Track Name: Dreaming
DREAMING

…Silver moon lights the night
Where are you?...

Minutes look like hours
Hours of wasted time
I´m tired of waiting for nothing
People want me to believe
In a true love that will last
I’m dreaming of the one

…Morning light awakes the day
Where are you?...

Minutes look like hours
Hours of wasted time
I´m tired of waiting for nothing
People want me to believe
In a true love that will last
I’m dreaming of the one

…The sun goes down again…

Minutes look like hours
Hours of wasted time
I´m tired of waiting for nothing
People want me to believe
In a true love that will last
I’m dreaming of the one

Minutes look like hours
Hours of wasted time
I’m so tired of waiting
I want to believe
In a love that will last
I am going for the one

Where are you?
Track Name: Stronger
Stronger
young boy sits in his chair
a guitar in his hands
thinks he can conquer the world
everybody is his friend
but hope is not enough
and talent just won’t do
don’t be a fool anymore
dreams just don’t come true

keep your feet on the ground, don’t build castles in the air
set your sights so high but know: in this world that nothing‘s fair

she stands by the window
looking down the long runway
hoping that he´ll return
maybe even come back today
but wanting it is never enough
it´s something that just won’t do
it is so cruel sometimes but
dreams just don’t come true
solo
Maybe you’re trapped by emotion
And you feel that they will last
It is over, so say goodbye
Don´t be a prisoner of the past
Doing what you always did
made everything stay the same
you´ve got to be so much stronger now
You’ve got to really change the game

keep your feet on the ground, don’t build castles in the air
set your sights so high but know: in this world that nothing‘s fair
hope is never enough and talent just won’t do
gotta learn the hard way now if you wanna make it through

you got to be a leader
where no boundaries exist
The future is wide open
For whatever tomorrow may bring
It´s not when you fall down
But when you try to get up again
Be strong, and get stronger
Gotta hold on till the end
Solo

keep your feet on the ground, don’t build castles in the air
set your sights so high but know in this world that nothing‘s fair
hope is never enough and talent just won’t do
gotta learn the hard way boy if you wanna make it through
keep your feet on the ground, don’t build castles in the air
set your sights so high but know: that this life is just not fair
Track Name: A Miracle
A Miracle
In the light of God
We play and sing
We cherish the moments
Of what love may bring

Always together
a promise made so tough
we cherish each other
as we share a life of love

It´s the miracle of love
Two hearts beating as one
Together till the end of time
As the rain falls from the sky
True love is a miracle
True love is a miracle

In the light it´s the Spirit of love
We keep moving till we get enough
See the world around us
Till understanding has found us

World keeps spinning round and round
Standing still until we´re found
We cherish the silence
And live a life of love

It´s the miracle of love
All hearts beating as one
Together till the end of time
As the rain falls from the sky
True love is a miracle
True love is a miracle

The look in your eye
Is everything to me
Can´t live life without you
You´re my destiny
Let the light guide you
Let it give you strength
Cause love will find you again and again

Repeat chorus

All hearts beating as one
The story has just begun
Track Name: Sun Sinks Low
SUN SINKS LOW

a little cold sweat I wipe away
a sad look around, cause this is the day
deep down inside I can feel the pain
my work ain't done, and only time remains

ooh when the sun sinks low
it makes me feel like I´m alone
ooh when the sun sinks low
it may be time for me to go

was I swimming before I drowned
maybe wasting time before I was found
little liars yeah, telling little lies
it's all a big charade to make time fly

ooh when the sun sinks low
it makes me feel like I´m alone
ooh when the sun sinks low
it may be time for me to go

it's so strange there's no escape
I was I, left the hiding shape
it's so dark and cold inside
as the sun sinks low tonight
darkness comes to take me away
every life will fall some day

ooh when the sun sinks low
the darkness leaves me so alone
ooh when the sun sinks low
it may be time for me to go
ooh when the sun sinks low
it makes me feel like I´m alone
ooh when the sun sinks low
it may be time for me to go

ooh when the sun sinks low
