Good looks never hurt no one Yet they fail to Turn me on If you’d like a way with me Then a way with words Is the key My, my The way you write, write Blows my mind, mind Way you write What a brilliant line Can we spend the night? Send me just a phrase or two No one says things quite Quite like you I just cannot help but smile Got me so intrigued By your mind My, my The way you write, write Blows my mind, mind Way you write What a brilliant line Can we spend the night?

I know your kind The same as mine You wear a smile With frown combined We see the end Every second What a waste What good taste I see you mourning the moment While in the midst of the moment Some have a tendency for it And don’t we love each other for it We’re always mourning the moment While in the midst of the moment (ooooh) Fatalist love (ooooh) Fatalist love Why must things end so bad After all the good times had Sentiment doesn’t help But still I can’t help myself I see you mourning the moment While in the midst of the moment Some have a tendency for it And don’t we love each other for it We’re always mourning the moment While in the midst of the moment (ooooh) Fatalist love (ooooh) Fatalist love (ooooh) My fatalist love

Now that you’re settled Comes a knock at the door Wind’s rattling something That never rattled before What have we if not promises? The excitement of the road too gets old Something has changed in me Changed again Something has changed in me And here I go On the road again Seeking another storm Just when I think I’ve got it right I hear the laughter of life Something has changed How many times we’ve pledged forever Gone overnight like the weather Magic days of childhood I took for granted Now I see were held together by a thread Something has changed in me Changed again Something has changed in me And here I am On the run again Seeking another storm Just when I think I’ve got it right I hear the laughter of life How many times can a person begin again? The road getting stranger with every turn Nature flaunting her beauty and indifference Smears away our love with a smile Something has changed

I caught your glance A time exact And it led me down a path How close we came To a different fate A million miles away Slight is the motion That ripples the ocean And guides your whole life through Chance are the moments That lead to a romance But not for me and you Darling you and I Almost shared a lifetime Just as easily Could have been you and me Like ants we crawl One takes a fall With no reason at all Your eyes meet mine It’s like we might As well have shared a lifetime Slight is the motion That ripples the ocean And guides your whole life through Chance are the moments That lead to a romance But not for me and you Darling you and I Almost shared a lifetime Just as easily Could have been you and me

Exciting times Have arrived It’s your turn In the light The invisible hand The wind at your back One by one, lucky cards Being stacked All the years You worked for this Now make sense Dead-end roads Stories untold With no witness Exciting times Enjoy the ride Feels like luck May always stay By your side Exciting times All the world smiles with you So much to look forward to Just how long will it last? There’s no time to reflect In exciting times Have arrived Only so many times In a life Come what may down the line Throw your two cents in the pile Cherish these precious Exciting times Exciting times

Music gets you girls It’s true I can assure I may not look like much On the street But once they hear me sing Mission complete If you’re of average look You’ve got to find another hook For every twenty hours you invest I guarantee an hour with the best So get to work My ugly friend Find a guitar And start a band We all need love Whatever works The truth it hurts Music gets you girls The ones who are beautiful And tall They don’t need to do Anything at all And who can blame them It’s not their fault But the rest of us Gotta hustle with charm I used to work At an office job And let me tell you The nights were long Now I sing And play guitar And the world has opened Legs and all So get to work My ugly friend Find a guitar And start a band We all need love Whatever works The truth it hurts Music gets you girls The truth it hurts Music gets you girls

Used to foresee myself alone A lovely older woman With lovers come and go No one to make me sick Each day a new headache With stale routines And all the rest of it Now I see your face each every morning Sometimes I want to scream out and go running But what good would I be Alone with poetry The void is sweeter in good company Let’s get along Anyone can sit like a genius on their own In the end what matters most Is that hellish room we shared Where everything went wrong Let’s get along No doubt I need my solitude To cleanse myself Of all the time spent with you Or else I’d lose my mind A girl needs her time To recharge for another round of paradise Let’s get along Anyone can sit like a genius on their own In the end what matters most Is that hellish room we shared Where everything went wrong Let’s get along It was a season to remember It was a nightmare and a pleasure In life you can’t have all things at once No matter what you choose something gets lost The math I’ve done is sound My calculations found That love yields the best deal around Yes you’ve told me that story before Why don’t you go ahead And tell me once more Cause you’re the queen of all my days In life’s nonsensical maze And that’s a headache That I’d never trade Let’s get along Anyone can sit like a genius on their own In the end what matters most Is that hellish room we shared Where everything went wrong Let’s get along Let’s get along Past the comfort zone’s Where all the good stuff’s from At the end of all my years I will cherish all your endless Chatter in my ears Let’s get along It was a season to remember It was a nightmare and a pleasure Thanks for the time we spent together Now I need you more than ever

The wilderness will wait Said I’d be back again While I seek the crowds While I’m on the stage In life there is a time For everything And there with open arms The wilderness will wait Wait for my return While my oats are being sowed In the city lights In the arms of boys and girls Youth it is a time For the exterior But in the hollow of a tree The forest waits for me Wherever I may roam Berlin, Paris or Stockholm A piece of forest comes with me And watches silently All my little wins And great disappointments Together it reassures That soon we will return

I’m taking with me  My memories of three  High on the beach  With one of each  Down in the mud  Up in the trees  A bottle of wine  What more do you need  These things can’t last  But they make a beautiful season  In the tall grass  She made a pass  All things have their time  And I’m doing fine  But I’m taking with me  My memories of three  Nature goes on  Long after we’re gone  Here in this place  How many have loved  Life carries on  Long after we’re gone  Here by the sea  Our memories of three  I’m taking with me  My memories of three  High on the beach  With one of each  Down in the mud  Up in the trees  A bottle of wine  What more do you need  These things can’t last  But they make a beautiful season  In the tall grass  She made a pass  Life carries on  Long after we’re gone  Here by the sea  Our memories of three
