Mr. Sandman
(by Pat Ballard. Originally recorded by The Chordettes)
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...
 
 
Surfin' USA
(by Chuck Berry / Brian Wilson)
If everybody had an ocean
Across the USA

Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like California

You see 'em wearin the baggies
Haurrachi sandals to

A bushy, bushy blonde hair do
Surfin' USA

You got 'em surfin' at Delma
Ventura county line

Santa Cruz and Tressels
Australia's Narrabeen

All over, Manhattan
And down Doheny way

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin USA

We'll all be plannin our route
We're gonna take real soon

We're waxin' down our surfboards
We can't wait for June

We'll all be gone for the summer
We're on safari to stay

Tell the teacher we're surfin'
Surfin' USA

At Haggarty's and Swami's
Pacific Palasades

San Ofre and Sunsets
Rhodondo Beach LA

All over La Jollah
At Wuiummeu Bay

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' USA

Guitar solo

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' USA

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' USA

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' USA
 
 
Bright Eyes
Fool just another
...

I've been waiting
For signs of god

Create- enslaved- behaved-
I'm out of control
Get lost in a cold world

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

And it trapped inside
It possesed and flamed my mind
A lot of darkness takes my soul
And will I left for I have seen
So easy

Everything is out of control

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

Guitar solo

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
... 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
Winter's here
In summer's season
Shall I say
I was wrong
If I'm right
And farewell to my last hope
 
 
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 rain for sorrow
I'll keep the rain 'till I die
I'll keep the rain for sorrow
I'll keep the rain 'till I die

Ref.:
Slow down and I sail on the river
Slow dawn and I walk to the hill
Slow down and I sail on the river
Slow dawn and I walk to the hill

And there's now 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
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've to go

I'll keep the rain
I'll keep the rain
I'll keep the rain
I'll keep the rain

'Till I die

Ref.:
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
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

The Wizard
(by Uriah Heep)
 
 
Spread Your Wings
(by Queen)
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)...
 
 
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 hat will rise
So 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

Ref.:
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

Guitar solo

Ref.:
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

Guitar solo

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

Piano solo
 
 
Black Chamber
I am lost in the black chamber
There's no way to turn back
There we're still alive
In a different world
It takes me down forevermore
And death could be so sweet
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 liest I thought
But I failed
Now he's in me

My soul is lost
In his black chamber

I'm gone
 
 
The Bard's Song
(live)
/German language/

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

Ref.:
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
Noone 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

Guitar solo

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
Noone should ask You for the name
Of the one
Who tells the story

Ref.:
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
Noone 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

/German language/

Gonna tell Aunt Mary 'bout Uncle John,
He says he has the blues but he has a lotta fun.
Oh baby,
Ye-e-e-eh baby,
Woo-o-o-oh baby,
Havin' me some fun tonight.

We're gonna have some fun tonight,
Gonna have some fun tonight.
We're gonna have some fun tonight,
Everything will be alright.
We're gonna have some fun,
Gonna have some fun tonight.
 
 
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
That'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
 
 
To France
(by Mike Oldfield)
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

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

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

I see a picture
By the lamp's flicker
Isn't it strange
How dreams fade and shimmer

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

Guitar solo

I see a picture
By the lamp's flicker
Isn't it strange
How dreams fade and shimmer

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

Never going to get to France

Never going to get to France

Never going to get to France

Never going to...
 
 
Theatre of Pain
Lead: Andre

The giant's lost
And all around him
Destructed for what
They all knew what it meant
But they couldn't change it
Lord they had gone too far
Leave them alone

It's all gone
What is left behind
On a desert we called earth
When the last whale went away
Did they ever see the tears

Don't fear your last step
From the theatre of pain
And the children will love your singing
From the sea
The sea is calling
Now we've to leave it

The sea was clear
On the day I was stranded
Answers I'd known
To keep this all alive
But I can't change it
Forever

Solo: Andre

Now I'm gone
And it seems that life has never existed
So we left the dark and cold
All I left behind are my tears

Don't fear your last step
From the theatre of pain
And the children will love your singing
From the sea
The sea is calling
I hear them calling
