I CALLED YOUR NAME, YOU WALKED AWAY FROM LIVING A DREAM. I TRIED TO SHOW THAT I STILL CARED, THAT I STILL WANT YOU, BUT LOVE GROWS COLD, GROWS COLD,GROWS COLD. LOVE GROWS COLD, GROWS COLD, IT GROWS YOU WALKED AWAY, YOU WOULDN'T STAY, NO EXPLANATIONS. LOOKING FOR REASONS, SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS, TRYING TO FIND THEM, BUT LOVE GROWS COLD, GROWS COLD,GROWS COLD. LOVE GROWS COLD, GROWS COLD, IT GROWS MY ONLY TIME AND ONLY CHANCE TO START MY LIFE WITH LOVE AND LAUGHTER, WE WALKED THE FIELDS, TALKED SO CLOSE, MOVING FASTER, GETTING CLOSER. BUT LOVE GROWS COLD, GROWS COLD, GROWS COLD, LOVE GROWS COLD, GROWS COLD, IT GROWS... YOU TOLD ME LIES, GAVE ALIBI'S, YOU GAVE NO REASONS, HID YOUR FEELINGS, YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE FOR A FINE ROMANCE, YOU THREW IT AWAY, YOU WALKED AWAY, BUT LOVE GROWS COLD, GROWS COLD,GROWS COLD. LOVE GROWS COLD, GROWS COLD, IT GROWS

TimeTrack 04:17
Time is a deceiver Never is your friend Don't know when it started Or when it will end Time waits for no one It is always passing by Can we travel through it? Does anyone dare try? In time every time Have we time to choose? Take time to consider We're always bound to lose Time is of the essence It is always on my mind We're bound to reach the end But we don't know what we'll find Is time passing you by? Is time passing you by? (instrumental) Time limits, Speed limits, Time limits, speed limits, Running against time Achieve all you can Before the end of the line Success is what counts And there is no turning back 'Cos life is the race And time is the track Is time passing you by? Is time passing you by?

Summerchild 04:08
FAR AWAY, AND YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN'T SWIM ALONE, AND YOU CAN'T WALK ALONE. I CAN'T RECALL YOUR NAME OR WHAT YOU'RE ABOUT. LIKE SHIPS IN THE NIGHT YOU CRAWL AWAY, YOU CRAWL AWAY. PRECOCIOUS CHILD, YOU'RE A SUMMER CHILD FROM A BEAUTIFUL TOWN, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MIND. OH AND THE DAYS GET ME DOWN, THEY GET ME DOWN, DAYS GET ME DOWN, THEY GET ME DOWN AND DOWN AND DOWN AND DOWN SUMMER CHILD LET ME BREAK YOUR ACHING NIGHTS, LET ME STEAL A DAY FROM YOU, LET ME TURN YOU AROUND. I CAN'T RECALL YOUR NAME OR WHAT YOU'RE ABOUT, LIKE SHIPS IN THE NIGHT YOU CRAWL AWAY, YOU CRAWL AWAY. I SEEM TO SIGH AND THINK ABOUT THE THINGS THAT YOU KNOW IT'S LIKE A KNIFE IN THE BACK WHEN YOU CRAWL AWAY, YOU CRAWL AWAY. AND SO I LOOK TO THE NIGHT.

THIS LIFE AND THE SCENES THAT WE CRINGE TO, PEOPLE IN CHARGE MAKE IT WORSE. WALK ON YOU, PRESS US TO THINK WE ENJOY THIS, WE’RE GOING TO IGNITE THIS HERE PLACE. TELEVISION, VIDEO SCREEN, ABSORBS THE MIND, PREYS ON YOU, UNTIL YOU'RE DOWN ON THE GROUND WITH YOUR FRIENDS, JUST A CHANCE. AWAY FROM THIS LIFE THAT WILL BLEED YOU, AWAY FROM THIS LAND THAT DIVIDES. OH, WE LA, LA, LA, LA, LAUGH. OH OH OH, WE LA, LA, LA, LA, LAUGH. OH OH TELEVISION, VIDEO SCREEN, ABSORBS THE MIND, PREYS ON YOU, UNTIL YOU'RE DOWN ON THE GROUND WITH YOUR FRIENDS, JUST A CHANCE. AWAY FROM THIS LIFE THAT WILL BLEED YOU, AWAY FROM THIS LIFE THAT DIVIDES. OH, WE LA, LA, LA, LA, LAUGH. OH OH OH, WE LA, LA, LA, LA, LAUGH. OH OH IMAGINE OUR TIME WITH ANOTHER, DIVINE WINE. DANCING WITH JOY ALL THE WAY. THEY CAN'T SEE THAT I'M NONE EXISTANT TO THEIR VIEW, AS THEY WILT THEY REPLACE SAME AGAIN. TELEVISION, VIDEO SCREEN, ABSORBS THE MIND, PREYS ON YOU, UNTIL YOU'RE DOWN ON THE GROUND WITH YOUR FRIENDS, JUST A CHANCE. AWAY FROM THIS LIFE THAT WILL BLEED YOU, AWAY FROM THIS LIFE THAT DIVIDES. OH, WE LA, LA, LA, LA, LAUGH. OH OH OH, WE LA, LA, LA, LA, LAUGH. OH OH OH, WE LA, LA, LA, LA, LAUGH. OH OH OH, WE LA, LA, LA, LA, LAUGH. OH OH WE LA, LA, LA, LA, LAUGH.

The One 03:34
LOOK INSIDE YOUR HEART I THOUGHT I HEARD SOMEBODY CRY, I SEE YOUR EVERY MOVE AND I HEAR YOUR EVERY LIE. I AM THE ONE WHO MADE YOU WHAT YOU ARE, I AM THE ONE WHO MOVES YOUR GUIDING STAR. I AM THE ONE! I AM THE ONE! TAKE A LOOK AROUND AND SEE THE DAMAGE YOU HAVE DONE, THE WHOLE WORLD HAS GONE CRAZY EVERYBODY OWNS A GUN. THERE'S A RIOT IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD IN A CITY NEAR YOU, THE HEADLINES SCREAM DISASTER TELL ME WHAT'YA GONNA DO. I AM THE ONE! I AM THE ONE! PEOPLE SLEEP IN CARDBOARD BOXES CAN'T AFFORD NO ROOMS, CARS CHOKE UP THE CITY STREETS THE SKY IS FILLED WITH FUMES. AND ALL AROUND THE SOUND OF PEOPLE CRYING IN DESPAIR, IS ANYBODY LISTENING, DOES ANYBODY CARE. I AM THE ONE! I AM THE ONE! WE'VE GOT TO TAKE SOME ACTION NOW AND LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND, GOT TO CHANGE OUR WAY OF THINKING, GOT TO CHANGE OUR STATE OF MIND, IT'S UP TO YOU AND ME TO CHANGE THE WAY IN WHICH WE LIVE, WE CAN'T GO ON JUST TAKING, WE'VE GOT TO LEARN HOW TO GIVE. I AM THE ONE! I AM THE ONE!

PLACES I SEE, COUNTRIES I KNOW, TRAVELLING ALONG EYES DOWN TO MY FEET. WIND IS SO COLD, TRY TO FORGET, FACES ARE WARM FAR FROM MY MIND. CAN'T DESCRIBE THE WAY I FEEL TODAY, CAN'T DESCRIBE THE WAY I FEEL TODAY, FORESTS AND FRIENDS, PEACE IN MY BED, ALL I WANT NOW IS TO BE JUST A FRIEND. BEAUTY I SEE BUT BLINDNESS IS COLD, WHY EXPLAIN, GOD ONLY KNOWS. CAN'T DESCRIBE THE WAY I FEEL TODAY, CAN'T DESCRIBE THE WAY I FEEL TODAY, SCENE, I TRY TO FIT IN, PEOPLE ACCEPT BUT SOME DISAGREE. LOVE IS THE GIFT I OFFER YOU, MY LIFE IN RETURN FOR A PLACE IN BERLIN. CAN'T DESCRIBE THE WAY I FEEL TODAY, CAN'T DESCRIBE THE WAY I FEEL TODAY, PLACES I SEE, COUNTRIES I KNOW, TRAVELLING ALONG EYES DOWN TO MY FEET. WIND IS SO COLD, TRY TO FORGET, FACES ARE WARM FAR FROM MY MIND. CAN'T DESCRIBE THE WAY I FEEL TODAY, CAN'T DESCRIBE THE WAY I FEEL TODAY,
