Track Name: First Six Months of Love
You must know that moment
When the miserable world cracks open
You finally meet someone
Suddenly the chapter’s written

Six months with nothing other
Than a duvet and a jug of water
It’s a chemical jackpot babe
And we’ve got the winning number

Give me the first six months of love
Give me the first six months of love
Before the truth comes spilling out
Before you open your big mouth
One of the finest things in life
Gone on a serotonin ride
God knows I’ve waited long enough
Give me the first six months
First six months of love

Before begin the dissections
Before the therapy sessions
We danced the night we met
Now we need dancing lessons

Remember how it all began
We must not let habit set in
Come up the stairs, let’s recommence
The first six months over again

Give me the first six months of love
Give me the first six months of love
Before the truth comes spilling out
Before you open your big mouth
One of the finest things in life
Gone on a serotonin ride
Babe if we gonna stick it out
Give me the first six months
First six months of love
Track Name: Behind Closed Doors
Behind closed doors
No words can touch that which is shared
Behind closed doors
No one can know the moments known by two alone
And those who share a bed do so forever more
Live on forever
Behind closed doors

Behind closed doors
No ending can erase the tender inside jokes
No gossip can deny the morning sunlight
For those who share a bed do so forever more
No one can know that which is shared
Behind closed doors

Behind closed doors
No words can touch that which is shared
Behind closed doors
No one can know the moments known by two alone
And those who share a bed do so forever more
No ending can erase the tender inside jokes
No gossip can deny the morning sunlight
For those who share a bed do so forever more
No one can know that which is shared
Behind closed doors
Track Name: Russian Romance
Beautiful nihilist
When nothing matters
Every moment comes alive
In love it’s all or nothing
Look at this life
How could the stakes be less than high

Feel –
The heat beyond the heat
The winter of all winters
The heart at maximum
And love
Until the edge of time
I will be by your side
The madness of this life

A Russian Romance
A Russian Romance
You ask what happened
I only say
A Russian Romance
A Russian Romance
Even when love is gone
The song plays on

An ancient melody
We knew the words by heart
Before we even met
When you’re faced with your darkest nature
Plunge down my love
And I’ll be waiting for you there

Feel –
The heat beyond the heat
The winter of all winters
The heart at maximum
And love
Until the edge of time
I will be by your side
The madness of this life

A Russian Romance
A Russian Romance
You ask what happened
I only say
A Russian Romance
A Russian Romance
Even when love is gone
The song plays on

A Russian Romance
A Russian Romance
There are some things in life
Of which you’ll never make sense
A Russian Romance
A Russian Romance
Even when love is gone
The song plays on
Track Name: My Familiar Unfamiliar
My familiar unfamiliar
My dearest mystery
I can’t get used to you
You turn from the kitchen window
I’m willing everything
I can’t get used to you
Don’t ever get used to me

Stay shy
I’ll remain your mistress
At breakfast time
I know you belong to the wind
And so do I
But please, every morning
You turn from the kitchen window
I’m willing everything
I can’t get used to you
Don’t ever get used to me

I know it’s sexy to be
With someone new
But even more so
With one you’ve been through
All that we’ve been through
I’m willing everything
I can’t get used to you
Don’t ever get used to me

My familiar unfamiliar
My dearest mystery
I can’t get used to you
You turn from the kitchen window
I’m willing everything
I can’t get used to you
Don’t ever get used to me
Track Name: I Saw The Spark
I saw the spark
And nothing can be done
I saw that unmistakeable look
At first recognition
When she walked in the room
The expression in your eyes
Nature taking its course
And there’s nothing I can do

We all get our turn to laugh
And our turn to cry
I’ve had my moments in the light
And I’ve been left behind
Tonight it’s my turn
To sit back and watch sparks fly
When she entered the room
A page turned on my life

I saw the spark
And nothing can be done
I know that look
Cause I’ve been in your position
When she walked in the room
And there’s nothing I can do
But to love you both the more
Second best thing to a cure

My side of the room grows dark
As this new discovery takes centre stage
Those I choose to keep close
Are bound to relate
I feel the jealousy rising up
But I know
Trying to stop these things
Only makes them worse
Still I can’t hide the hurt

I saw the spark
And nothing can be done
I know that unmistakeable look
At first recognition
When she walked in the room
And there’s nothing I can do
But to love you both the more
Second best thing to a cure

At one point in time
I had that moment with both of you
When the meeting overwhelmed
And now you’re introduced
I had given it no thought
But of course it all makes sense
I’ve dreaded this moment

I saw the spark
And nothing can be done
I know that look
Now I’m in the shit position
When she walked in the room
The expression in your eyes
Nature taking its course
And there’s nothing I can do
But to love you both the more
No there’s nothing I can do
But to love you both the more
Second best thing to a cure
Track Name: Dance While You Can
Where
Where are they now?
The ones with whom I laid in summer
You lover somehow
I’ll find a way to keep forever

Dance while you can
Before the night is over
We know how life
How life can change
In an instant baby
Dance while you can
Don’t you know life is horror
I’ve seen how fast it can change

Look into my eyes
We know life pulls the rug from our feet
One day to another
No time to be shy
We must treat this and every night
Like the last goodbye

Where
Where are they now?
The ones with whom I laid in summer
You lover somehow
I’ll find a way to keep forever

Pictures that we took
Just a decade ago
Oh my god half those people are dead
(Or almost dead)
Life goes so fast
Yes of course
But no one really believes it
Till they get there

For all the people laying in hospital beds
For our mothers suffering somewhere
So many living in hell
Who would kill for a night like this
Dance while you can

Before the night is over
We know how life
How life can change
In an instant baby
Dance while you can
Don’t you know life is horror
I’ve seen how fast it can change

Where
Where are they now?
The ones with whom I laid in summer
You lover I vow
I’ll find a way to keep forever
Track Name: End of an Era
You say you’re leaving Berlin
You’ve been threatening for years
But this is it
Remember how we met
As strangers on the street
I said you were a creep
And so began our friendship

Soon we were together every day
Our favourite meeting place
Our favourite cafe
Only so many times
These eras our lives
We never realize
Till come the turning of the tides

Now it’s the end of an era
End of an era, my friend
(La la la la la)
(La la la la la)
It’s the end of an era
End of an era when our lives
Did so effortlessly collide
We had a good time didn’t we
We had a good time didn’t we

Friendships don’t end we know
But time and place, the river flows
(End of an era)
(End of an era)
We’ll meet in other circumstance
Five years we spent in a daily dance
(End of an era)
(End of an era)

How I’d often turn around and see
Your face remained for so long unfamiliar
It happened suddenly
A stranger you were to me
Next day I looked and realized
That no one knew me better

It’s the end of an era
End of an era, my friend
(La la la la la)
(La la la la la)
It’s the end of an era
End of an era when our lives
Did so effortlessly collide
We had a good time didn’t we
We had a good time didn’t we

We had a good time
We leave a good thing for another good thing
We had a good time
We had a good time didn’t we

End of an era
End of an era, my friend
(La la la la la)
(La la la la la)
It’s the end of an era
End of an era when our lives
Did so effortlessly collide
We had a good time didn’t we
We had a good time didn’t we
Track Name: Drugs Saved My Life
I wish I’d met you earlier
Or maybe it’s better we met as adults
You taught me how to stop thinking so much
Thinking never got me anywhere

How I spun in circles before you came
The sober mind is a messy thing
Those who know I’m a solid candidate
Believe when I say

Drugs saved my life
Showed me an open hand
I owe more than I can say
To those select days
Eyes each moment anew
I know it’s not right to say
But if you’ve walked through those fields
Then you know what I mean

I’m sorry about those things I said
Before I met you myself
Those who hate you the most
Have never kissed you on the mouth

I’m the type
Who knows how to draw the line
So I don’t visit you that often
But I live with
The knowledge of your smile

Showed me an open hand
I owe more than I can say
To those select days
Eyes each moment anew
I know it’s not right to say
But if you’ve walked through those fields
Then you know what I mean

Where are you the rest of the time?
And why do eyes grow tired?
And I can’t forget the night
That you stabbed me in the back
So I live a reasonable life
But I never forget
Those summer nights

Showed me an open hand
I owe more than I can say
To those select days
Eyes each moment anew
I know it’s not right to say
But if you’ve walked through those fields
Then you know what I mean
