История группы Europe началась в 1980 году со встречи двух школьных друзей вокалиста Йоакима Ларссона (Joakim Larsson) и гитариста Джона Норума в Стокгольме. До этого оба музыканта прошли через множество локальных коллективов. Так, например, Джон с 1977 года играл в коллективе под названием Dragonfly, а Йоаким - в постоянно переименовывающемся составе, который изначально назывался Made in Hong Kong, а затем упростился до Blaser. Музыкальная сцена Швеции была в те времена настолько невелика, что большинство исполнителей были хорошо знакомы и частенько играли вместе в тех или иных составах. Йоаким, например, пару лет был участником группы Power, родоначальником и лидером которой был знаменитый впоследствии гитарист Ингви Мальмстин (Yngwie Malmsteen). В том же составе с Ингви и Йоакимом был некоторое время басист по имени Джон Левен, которого вскоре сменил Марсель Якоб (Marcel Jacob). Надо сказать, что надежд на серьезный успех у ребят не было, так что все происходило на чисто любительском уровне, хотя демо-пленки создавались более или менее регулярно.

Итак, в 1980 году Йоаким Ларссон и Джон Норум впервые выступили в одном из местных клубом Стокгольма вместе с басистом Джоном Левеном и ударником Тони Ниемисто (Tony Niemisto), с которым Джон выступал еще в Dragonfly. Новоявленная группа назвалась Force. Первое их выступление было не особо успешным, однако ребята решили продолжать совместную работу. Совместной, правда, ее можно было в то время назвать довольно-таки относительно, так как еще где-то полгода Джон Левен не мог решиться, где же ему играть - либо с Ингви, либо с Йоакимом. Такие же колебания испытывал и басист Ингви Марсель. Однако, в конечном счете, Джон Левен предпочел Force, а Ингви Марсель - Rising Force (так тогда называлась группа Ингви).

В течение года Force постоянно дает концерты в местных клубах и пишет композиции. В 1982 году у музыкантов возникает идея попробовать свои силы на местном конкурсе талантов, так как группа-победитель получала право подписать контракт на запись одной пластинки с местной фирмой грамзаписи. Для участия в конкурсе нужно было записать демо-пленку и отправить ее в организационный комитет. Сделав на собственные деньги запись в одной из локальных студий, участники группы, тем не менее, остались недовольны качеством произведенного материала и решили не позориться. Однако подруга Йоакима рассудила по-своему, и именно благодаря ей пленка оказалась в оргкомитете.

С группой же на тот момент произошло несколько серьезных перемен. Для избежания путаницы со всякими коллективами с похожим именем музыканты решают переименоваться в Europe. Одновременно с этим Йоаким Ларссон счел, что его имя и фамилия не вполне соответствуют общепринятым стандартам, то есть трудно произносятся и запоминаются, так что он переименовался в Джои Темпеста. Ударник Тони Ниемисто же предпочел просто поменять фамилию на Рено.

Однако в оргкомитете об этих перестановках ничего не знали. Прослушав все присланные пленки, музыкальные знатоки выделили из всех именно Force и предложили группе выступить на конкурсе в качестве победителя. Концерт этот транслировался на всю Швецию и был настолько хорошо принят, что группа немедленно получила контракт на запись альбома.

Через несколько недель запись была уже довершена, и в середине 1982 года одноименный с группой альбом вышел на местной фирме Hot International. Нельзя сказать, что диск был супер-успешным. Содержал он в себе довольно жесткий хард-рок в духе таких групп как Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy и Cream. По своему содержанию большинство композиций были весьма реалистичны, в какой-то степени даже поучительны ("In The Future To Come", "Children Of This Time", "Words Of Wisdom"), но была и одна мистическая вещь под названием "Seven Doors Hotel", навеянная фильмом ужасов "Beyond". Как только диск появился в продаже, он попал в руки одного из японских журналистов, и именно "Seven Doors Hotel" стал первой записью Europe, вышедшей в Японии в виде сингла и самой известной композицией группы на тот момент.

Группа отправилась в небольшое турне по Скандинавии, после которого сразу приступила к созданию нового альбома. Однако в ходе записи диска Джои пришлось на несколько недель слетать в Японию в целях промоушена - настолько был силен интерес в этой стране к загадочным шведам. По его возвращению группа вновь приступила к репетициям и к февралю 1984 года подготовила новый альбом, озаглавленный "Wings Of Tomorrow". И уж на этот раз ребята показали себя во всей красе. На альбоме была целая пачка хитов - "Stormwind", "Scream Of Anger" (написанная еще с Марселем Якобом в 1980 году), "Open Your Heart" и "Dreamer". Альбому была обеспечена солидная реклама, успех уже достиг не только Японии, но и Европы и США. Надо сказать, что и по музыке группа заметно выросла со времен первого альбома.

Аранжировки на этот раз были более продуманны, не было дерганых структур в композициях, появились более коммерческие композиции типа "Open Your Heart". Легкости звучания способствовало и то, что на альбоме появился (пока только в качестве сессионного музыканта) клавишник Мик Михаэли. Одним словом, у группы появились реальные шансы прорваться на мировую музыкальную сцену. Но тут возникла первая серьезная проблема с составом - Тони Рено предпочел покинуть коллектив, так как, по словам музыкантов, не соответствовал профессиональному уровню остальных.

Заменой ему стал ударник по имени Ян Хогланд, с которым ребята были знакомы уже довольно давно. Ян в свое время играл в группе Trilogy, которая тоже участвовала в конкурсе, выигранном Europe. Ян был более-менее знаком с репертуаром нового коллектива, так что после некоторого времени, потраченного на репетиции и клубные пробы с новым ударником, группа отправилась в турне по Скандинавии и некоторым странам Европы. Клавишник Мик Михаэли уже официально стал пятым членом коллектива, так как Джои было очень тяжело петь и играть на клавишных в ходе концертов. По окончании турне музыканты уже готовы были отправиться в студию для записи нового альбома, когда на их пути возникли…телевизионщики. Они предложили группе написать несколько композиций для нового фильма ужасов "On The Loose". Было создано несколько композиций, три из которых - "On The Loose", "Broken Dreams" и "Rock The Night" вошли в саундтрек.

В ходе записи группа пользовалась услугами все той же "Polar Studios" - знаменитой студии звукозаписи легендарных ABBA, однако вскоре после окончания работы над фильмом Europe решили поменять место записи и уехали в Швейцарию. Основной проблемой, по их словам, в данном случае стала невозможность создать настоящий хард-рок альбом на имевшейся в шведской студии аппаратуре. Помимо фильма группа приняла участие в проекте Swedish Metal Aid, который явился благотворительной записью всех более или менее известных на тот момент шведских музыкантов для граждан Эфиопии. Помимо Europe в записи, в частности, поучаствовали музыканты из групп Treat, Easy Action, Heavy Load и т.д. Результатом их совместной работы стала композиция "Give A Helping Hand", выпущенная отдельно в виде сингла, а сама запись была задокументирована на видео.

И все-таки вернемся к самой группе. Когда были закончены все сторонние проекты, музыканты вновь вернулись к записи альбома. И тут ее снова пришлось отложить на несколько месяцев на этот раз из-за профессиональной болезни всех вокалистов - проблем с горлом Джои. Но как бы там ни было, а в самом начале 1986 года поклонники группы получили новый альбом шведов, озаглавленный "The Final Countdown". Это был самый настоящий прорыв. Заглавная композиция альбома имела сногсшибательный успех, диск многократно становился золотым и платиновым, отдельно вышедший сингл отрывали буквально с руками, саму песню бесчисленное количество раз крутили во всех радиопередачах, а клип получил бешеную раскрутку во всевозможным музыкальным (и не только) каналам (в том числе на MTV)! Группа пребывала в состоянии шока - ведь ни одному шведскому музыканту (помимо ABBA) доселе не удавалось достичь таких высот. Стоит ли говорить о том, что после этого события во всем мире заинтересовались доселе локальной шведской сценой и серьезно взялись за ее раскрутку. И если ранее диски Europe и других шведских команд выпускались на независимых мелких компаниях, то теперь их купили такие гиганты как CBS и EMI.

Группа стала открытием и событием года и, наконец, отправилась в первое мировое турне, которое началось триумфальным выступлением в родном Стокгольме 26 мая 1986 года. Затем последовала Япония, где восторгу фэнов не было никакого предела. На очереди была страна мечты, страна, где любой коллектив стремился (и до сих пор стремится) получить шанс дать хотя бы пару концертов - США.

Однако перед столь грандиозным шагом группа решила взять небольшой отпуск, в ходе которого Джои и Джон поучаствовали в записи диска младшей сестры Джона - Тон Норум (Tone Norum) - "One Of A Kind" (1986).

В целом все у группы шло просто замечательно… Новый альбом был на вершине всех возможных хит-парадов, концерты шли "на ура", новый сингл "Carrie" получил серьезную раскрутку на радио. Казалось, все идет по восходящей…. Однако, в рок-музыке есть очень мало коллективов, которые могут пройти множество испытаний и сохранить при этом свою сплоченность. Europe не суждено было попасть в число тех немногих. Произошло это в один из октябрьских дней 1986 года, когда Джон Норум заявил о своем желании оставить группу. Для такого решения у него было несколько причин. Во-первых, Джон был недоволен смягчением стиля группы, которое произошло во многом благодаря приходу Мика Михаэли. Против Мика лично Джон ничего не имел, однако протестовал против попсового звучания клавишных в композициях и старался сделать песни по возможности хард-роковыми. Во-вторых, Джону хотелось наравне со всеми музыкантами писать новые песни, однако менеджмент группы был против и "задвигал" множество идей всех участников за исключением Джои (при отборе материала для "The Final Countdown" упор был сделан именно на его песни). И третьей немаловажной причиной было то, что группа пользовалась бешеным успехом, но не имела с этого ни гроша, так как менеджмент и промоутеры гастролей забирали почти все деньги себе. Свои доводы Джон пытался втолковать и остальным участникам группы, однако они попросту его проигнорировали, так как чувство успеха заставило их забыть о чисто музыкальной стороне дела. Уступив просьбам друзей, Джон согласился остаться в коллективе, пока не будет найдена достойная замена.

А замена была найдена на редкость быстро. Звали этого новичка Хелль Лавбем (Kjell Lavbom), однако еще на заре своей музыкальной карьеры он сменил имя на Ки Марселло. Начинал он, так же как и все музыканты Europe, в локальных коллективах, пока вместе с вокалистом по имени Бо Стагман (Bo Stagman), который позже стал именоваться Зинни Зен (Zinni Zen), не собрал коллектив Easy Action. Группа довольно быстро подписала контракт с одним из местных независимых лейблов и выпустила в 1983 году дебютный одноименный мини-альбом. По музыке это было что-то в духе ранних Motley Crue, однако с присущей европейским группам мелодикой и грамотными аранжировками. Позже мини-альбом был переиздан в 1984 году под тем же названием с добавлением еще нескольких треков. Второй альбом группы появился в 1986 году и назывался "That Makes One". Как уже ранее упоминалось, музыканты группы участвовали в проекте Swedish Metal Aid, и именно тогда Джои и познакомился с Ки. А когда возникли проблемы с Норумом, Джои моментально позвонил Ки, и через пару-тройку месяцев новый гитарист уже являлся полноценным членом Europe. Easy Action же продержались после этого еще некоторое время, однако Ки заменить не смогли и распались.

Дебют нового гитариста состоялся в Стокгольме, а затем группа отправилась в долгожданное турне по США. Изначально все музыканты и менеджмент страшно волновались о том, какой прием им окажут в Штатах, однако с первых же концертов было ясно - все пройдет просто идеально. Так оно и получилось. Залы были полны зрителей в каждом городе, атрибутика группы расходилась со страшной скоростью, и каждый поклонник был просто в восторге от того, что такие "гранды" посетили его родной город.

После США группа отыграла в Европе, а под конец 1987 засела в студии для создания очередного шедевра, который вышел уже ближе в лету 1988 года и назывался "Out Of This World". Диск был менее успешен, чем "The Final Countdown", однако хитов на нем все равно было предостаточно - "Superstitious", "Let The Good Times Rock" и "Tomorrow". Второе дыхание на этом альбоме обрела и композиция "Open Your Heart", изначально вышедшая на "Wings Of Tomorrow". В Швеции диск достиг платинового статуса через 24 часа после выхода, стал одним из самых успешных дисков года в США и Японии. Снова последовало турне по США, Японии и Европе. Одним из самых интересных моментов на тех концертах стали выступления на бис, в ходе которых группа исполняла две кавер-версии: The Beatles "A Hard Day`s Night" и "Hound Dog" Элвиса Пресли. Завершилось это турне в 1989 году выступлением на фестивале в Милтон-Кеннис, где группа представила четыре песни, подготовленные для нового альбома: "Yesterday`s News", "Seventh Sign", "Little Bit Of Lovin`" и "Sweet Love Child". Песни были тяжелее, чем все то, что группа создавала ранее, однако не утратили прежней мелодичности и очарования и были прекрасно восприняты слушателями.

Однако фэны - это одно, а вот компания звукозаписи - Sony Music - была не особо довольна таким утяжелением звучания. Однако ребята не желали отбрасывать почти на 80% готовый материал и решили представить его публике в ходе серии клубных выступлений. Конечно, не было и речи о том, чтобы выступать в клубах под именем Europe (поклонники бы просто разнесли любой клуб), так что в срочном порядке группа сменила специально для этих выступлений свое название на Le Baron Boys. Кстати, если кто-то подумает, что имеются в виду бароны и герцоги, то он полностью ошибется, так как название появилось благодаря любимой машине всех участников группы марки Кадиллак Le Baron. Один из концертов был дан в лос-анджелесском клубе "Whiskey A Go Go", а второй - в лондонском "Marquee". На обоих выступлениях упор делался именно на новый материал, как то четыре вышеупомянутые песни плюс "Long Time Comin`", "Break Free" и "Girl From Lebanon", в то время как хиты минувших лет "The Final Countdown", "Carrie" и "Superstitious" не игрались вообще. Однако поклонники были просто в восторге. Таких тяжелых и в то же время очень приятных и мелодичных песен от Europe в те времена никто не ожидал. Таким образом успех новому альбому был заранее гарантирован. Группа была очень воодушевлена реакцией фэнов, и вскоре новый альбом был уже записан и планировался к выходу в 1990 году. Однако компания Sony Music была недовольна отходом музыкантов от попсового хард-рока и настояла на том, чтобы группа "дописала" несколько хитов для синглов. Собрав все силы, музыканты придумали еще несколько композиций - "All Or Nothing", "I`ll Cry For You" и "Got Your Mind The Gutter". Наконец, в сентябре 1991 долгожданный альбом "Prisoners In Paradise" появился на прилавках магазинов. Правда трек-лист этого нового шедевра не включал в себя многих вещей, которые группа исполняла под именем Le Baron Boys и которые анонсировались в различных музыкальных изданиях. Этим особенно было недовольно японское отделение Sony Music, которое настояло на включении в японский вариант альбома двух дополнительных вещей, а именно "Break Free" и "Yesterday`s News".

Сразу после своего выхода альбом получил мировое признание, и турне по Европе, США и Японии имело громадный успех. В Японии группа выступила совместно с Thunder, Tesla и Metallica! Видя такой успех, Sony Music решила порадовать фэнов группы компиляцией лучших вещей коллектива наравне с редкостями. Большинство композиций, на самом-то деле, был взяты с различных синглов, выходивших с 1982 по 1992 годы, что и позволило назвать "новый" альбом "1982-1992". Вроде бы все шло довольно неплохо, и по идее группа уже должна была отправиться в студию для создания нового альбома, однако… некоторое время спустя после выхода сборника Джои заявил, что группа на время прерывает свое существование! Основными причинами для этого, по словам вокалиста, были следующие моменты: конфликты с компанией звукозаписи, бездарные и необдуманные шаги менеджмента и "отсутствие понятия дома у всех музыкантов коллектива".

По словам Джои, с 1985 года группа жила одними только концертами и работой в студии, что не позволяло им даже заняться личной жизнью или навестить родителей и жен. С другой стороны, Темпест всячески опровергал слухи о распаде коллектива. И действительно, официально распад группы не был заявлен ни в одном музыкальном издании или по радиостанции, что давало надежду на дальнейшую работу под именем Europe… Казалось, что уже мало что способно собрать группу воедино, однако такой случай представился в самом конце 1999 года. Близился конец века, и музыкальным бизнесменам удалось уговорить Europe отыграть пару вещей прямо перед полуночью 31 декабря 1999 года за три миллиона долларов. В многочисленных интервью ребята не раз говорили, что не имеют ничего против совместного выступления, однако каждый раз оговаривались, что последнее слово в этом решении остается за Джои.

Как раз за несколько месяцев до знаменательного выступления Джои предложили записать новую версию легендарной "The Final Countdown", что и было сделано. Композиция вышла отдельным синглом, достигла третьего места в шведском хит-параде, и разговоры о воссоединении группы стали звучать все чаще и чаще. И вот, Джои дал согласие на выступление перед самым новым годом, причем было решено, что в концерте примут участие… оба гитариста коллектива, то есть Джон Норум и Ки Марселло! Восторгу фэнов не было предела, особенно в тот момент, когда в 23 часа 45 минут последнего дня XX века группа в составе Джои Темпест (вокал), Джон Норум (гитара), Ки Марселло (гитара), Джон Левен (бас), Мик Михаэлли (клавишные) и Ян Хогланд (ударные) вышла на плавающую сцену, и из колонок зазвучали первые аккорды "Rock The Night", за которой последовала "The Final Countdown"! Это событие транслировалось на весь мир, и множество людей ожидало продолжения, однако, по словам всех музыкантов группы, это был только "одноразовый" концерт и никаких конкретных планов о будущем группы у них не было. "В сущности, мы ничего не имеем против совместной работы и продолжим ее, как только представится подходящий момент", - подвел итог всем вопросам Джои.

И наконец, после долгого ожидания, Europe возобновила свое совместное творчество, выпустив в 2004 году первый после тринадцатилетнего перерыва альбом "Start From The Dark". Следующим альбомом стал вышедший в 2006 году "Secret Society". Кроме того, в этом же году был выпущен DVD, посвященный двадцатилетию выхода легендарной композиции "The Final Countdown". Группа активно гастролирует и снова радует своим сумасшедшим драйвом многочисленных поклонников по всему миру.

Тексты песен альбома Wings Of Tomorrow (1984)


Stormwind

I like to sit beside the fire
When the light is going down
I like to hear the wild wind blow outside my door
I have so much left to remember
I have so much left to forget
And I know I just don't have to search for more

But you want to change my world
Stay out of my life

Stormwind
You're just like a wind
Comin' to drag me away
Stormwind
What can I say?
I just don't want you to stay

I like to walk around in dreams at night
And play with kings and queens 'til the morning light
I like to wake up in the morning unaware
Of the fact that you are calling me
To ask me if I want to be
Someone who you could love and always care for

But you want to change my world
Stay out of my life

Stormwind
You're just like a wind
Comin' to drag me away
Stormwind
What can I say?
I just don't want you to stay


Scream Of Anger

I won't live to see tomorrow
There won't be another breath
None of them will ever sorrow
Those who sentenced me to death

I've been waiting here for ages
For the hangman to appear
Soon the priest will read some pages
From the Bible for my fear

I see a place an evil place
Comin' my way
What can I do where can I run
I'm gonna die anyway
Things are getting clearer
This is the price I have to pay
I feel like screaming out my anger
There is so much left here to do
When it happened I was younger
And my destiny was you

I see a place an evil place...

What can I do
About leaving you
We were only halfway through
What can I say
There was no other way
They wouldn't let me stay


Open Your Heart

Days filled with joy and days filled with sorrow
I don't know just what to do
Am I happy today, am I lonely tomorrow
Everything depends on you

And I've been waitin'
For the angels to knock on my door
I've been hopin'
That everything could be like before

Open your heart and tell me what's wrong
Why can't you talk like you used to do before
I don't know if I'm weak, I don't know if I'm strong
Hey girl I can't cope anymore

And I've been waitin'...

Open your heart, let me hear you
Make up your mind, I want to hear you call
Open your heart, want to come near you
Make up your mind, before we lose it all

Maybe that time has its own way of healin'
Maybe it dries the tears in your eyes
But never changes the way that I'm feelin'
Only you can answer my cries

And I've been waitin'...

Open your heart, let me hear you...


Treated Bad Again

Hey girl don't come to me
And ask me for a helpin' hand
'Cause by the way things seem to be
I would never ever understand
When he comes to you
You always take him back
Hey girl, just wait and see
You're bound to have a heartattack

'Cause whenever you meet
It always turns out the same
You're treated bad again
Treated bad again

Hey girl why can't you learn
that changes can be made
'Cause when he comes to you
You got to turn and walk
the other way
Go out, hit the town,
Try to look for something new
Go out, mess around,
Understand what you are going through

'Cause whenever you meet
It always turns out the same
You're treated bad again
Treated bad again
So many nights
My thoughts bring me to you
I've seen him come and go
And so many years
You don't know I've been watching you
But baby, baby, baby
Would something change if you knew


Aphasia

(Instrumental)


Wings Of Tomorrow

You must be dreaming,
Or going out of your mind
There's no way of changing,
The world over one night
Maybe you need to recover,
From all the things you've been through
Maybe you need to discover
That it ain't much left to do

Ride, ride, ride the wings of tomorrow
Ride, ride, ride to change the world

You feel sorry for the nation of 1984
And it cuts you like a razor
'Cause you've seen it all before

You've seen one war after another
So many lifes on the line
You must take care of one another
Or it's the end of time


Wasted Time

Blood's been spilled throughout all times
We should know better since we've been around
There's been changes there's no denyin'
But in what direction is good sense flying

This world so endless blue
Is better for lovers
You cry 'cause you don't know if it's true
If all those years've been wasted time

Evil strikes, you feel the fear
The vision of the future is no longer clear
In your mind you see yourself
Running and hiding you're somebody else


Lyin' Eyes

I can tell, just by the look
In your eyes, that the love is gone, that I once took
So much has changed in the way you live
I bet there's nothing left that you can ever give

The words of a madman are spoken
I guess I'm not the only one
The heart of a sadman is broken

Eyes, lyin' eyes
You can fool anyone without disguise
Eyes, lyin' eyes
Your look is cold as ice

It's in your blood, it floats in your veins
I sacrify myself but all I feel is pain
You've done me wrong, you've been so bad
But it's the last time a battle is lost
Where I'm the one who's sad

The words of a...

Eyes, lyin' eyes...

I wish you'd die, I wish you'd break down and cry
I wish you'd move and then I know I'd be satisfied
Can't you see I'm on the edge, I can't look down
Is it me who's lost and never found


Dreamer

He is down by the riverside
Late one night
He's tryin' to count the stars
In each of the signs
All alone by the riverside
And time passes by
Gathering thoughts of the past
And maybe he'll cry

So they say he's a madman
And he don't understand
But I know that he's tryin' hard
To act like a man
All those years he has suffered, my friends
All those years of pain
But I don't think he knows for sure
If those years were in vain

He's a dreamer
And he's fightin' for his life
He's tryin' to understand
He's a dreamer
But he wants to carry on
Yet I know he's a lonely man


Dance The Night Away


Hey girl I can feel your heart
We had something goin' on right from the start
When I look at you I just feel so good
Hear the music breakin' up the ground
Can you feel it I just love the sound
And I'm lettin' go just like I should

There's something goin' on that's so hard to describe

Well, I can dance the night away
There's nothin' else that I want to do
I can dance the night away
There's no one else that I want but you

Tomorrow never gets in my way
When I feel like dancin' night and day
I just want to get up and never ever get down
Seems to me I won't get old
And my heart will never ever get cold
It's so hard to feel bad when you're around

Тексты песен альбома The Final Countdown (1986)


The Final Countdown


We're leaving together,
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back,
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground (leaving ground)
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown
The final countdown

We're heading for Venus and still we stand tall
Cause maybe they've seen us and welcome us all
With so many light years to go and things to be found (to be found)
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so.

It's the final countdown
The final countdown
The final countdown...


Rock The Night

I've gone through changes
I've gone through pain
But there's not enough reason for me to go insane
I know the feeling, when it grows
I'm in a rage up from my head down to my toes.

You know it ain't easy
Running out of thrills
You know it ain't easy
When you don't know what you want.

Rock now, rock the night
'Til early in the morning light
Rock now, rock the night
You'd better believe it's right.

I know my limit
Just what it takes
When things ain't good enough
I just pull the brake
Sometimes it's easy
Sometimes so tough
But just have one thing clear
I can't get enough.


Carrie

When lights go down, I see no reason
For you to cry. We've been through this before
In every time, in every season,
God knows I've tried
So please don't ask for more.

Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change my friend
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again somewhere again

I read your mind, with no intentions
Of being unkind, I wish I could explain
It all takes time, a whole lot of patience
If it's a crime, how come I feel no pain.

Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, oh things they change my friend
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again

Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change Carrie, Carrie,
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again, oh somewhere again

When lights go down...


Danger On The Track

I was heading for the mountains
I had saved so much for you
And in the town I left behind me
There was nothing left to do.

I knew that you were waiting
For me to share your life
Cause I told you when I left, that
When I come back you'll be my wife.

But someone was waiting
In the shadows of the night
Someone was waiting
It just didn't feel right.

Danger on the track
Something told me there were
Strangers on my back
And I was so right.

Maybe I should surrender
Maybe I should give it up
But the strength I had inside
Told me you can never stop.

The men wanted to break me
Steal and bring me down
But I fought for you and later
They were lying on the ground.


Ninja

Tell me the story, tell me the legend
Tell me the tales of war
Tell me just one time,
What it was like before
Bring me the feeling, right in that moment
When a heart for battle cries
Find me the treasure where the legend lies.

If I were a noble ancient knight
I'd stand by jour side to rule and fight
It will always feel the same
When I call out your name.

Ninja survive, in dreams I walk by your side
Ninja survive, with you there's no need to hide.

A handful of sayings are more than a reason
For me to feel this way
I'd like to be near you
Maybe for just one day
So tell me the legend, tell me the story
Tell me the tales of war
Tell me just one time
What it was like before.


Cherokee

They lived in peace, not long ago
A mighty Indian tribe
But the winds of change,
Made them realize, that the promises were lies.

The white man's greed, in search of gold
Made the nation bleed
They lost their faith
And now they hade to learn
There was no place to return
Nowhere they could turn.

Cherokee - marching on the trail of tears.

They were driven hard, across the plains
And walked for many moons
Cause the winds of change,
Had made them realize, that the promises were lies.

So much to bear, all that pain
Left them in despair
They lost their faith
And now they hade to learn
There was no place to return
Nowhere they could turn.


Time Has Come


Long for the sailor, beneath the skies
Long for the white dove, no matter where she flies
Long for the stranger you know so well.

Pray for the soldier, who's wounded bad
Pray for the dreamer, he's still so sad
Pray for the stranger you know so well.

Cause I'm coming home.

Now the time has come

For me to come back home.

Long for the eagle, on wings so strong
Long for the hunter, he won't be long
Long for the stranger you know so well.


Heart Of Stone

I've told you once and I've told you twice
Wait for that day, when our love will rise
To that song that brought our hearts together.

Even though you're mistreating me
I know the girl that you used to be
For me those days were meant to last forever.

Time after time I'm wondering why
Am I to be all alone
Day after day I pray that you'll stay
Cause you've got a heart of stone.

I walk the streets like a broken man
Oh I wish that you would understand
Even though you're still the one I wait for.

I guess in love there's no guarantee
Sometimes it's not what it seems to be
Even though you're still the one I care for.


On The Loose

Running out on the streets
He lives from day to day
Looking for someting to do
He needs to get away.

Hoping that maybe one day
He could be someone
Praying that maybe someday
He could be number one.

In his world of make believe
He always tends to be

On the loose, so young, so tough, so wild

On the loose, again.

Dreaming, dreaming about
All the things he'd like to do
Trying, trying so hard
To make it all up to you.


Love Chaser

Someone's at your door tonight
Someone wants your love
Is it real or just imagination
You decide to wait inside 'til the break of dawn
In dreams you see yourself seeking affection.

He'll know just who you are
He'll know just where you've been
He'll know just what to do.

Love chaser - If you look deep in his eyes
Then you're in for a big surprise
He can take your breath away
There's nothing you can do or say.

You can feel that someone's at your back
You can hear his pounding heart
But something tells you not to be afraid
Cause even in the darkest night
Someone's at your side
But when morning comes it all starts to fade away.

Тексты песен альбома Out Of This World (1988)


Superstitious

Keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious

I'm not superstitious, I have no doubt
That there's a reason, how things turn out
While things are changin' from day to day
I'll keep this feelin' with me all the way

And I want you to know
That you're on my mind
Every day, all of the time

So keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious

There might be times of wonder
When I'm on my own
Tryin' to find out if love has gone
It might make a difference
It might bring me down
But no superstition is gonna turn things around

And I want you to know
That you're on my mind
Every day, all of the time

So keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious

So keep on walkin' and we'll make things right
Yeah, keep on dreamin' each and every night
We're gonna make it, that's what we'll do
Right to the end girl, we're gonna walk on through

So keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious


Let The Good Times Rock

You say that you want me
I hope that you do
Cause tell me just where I would be in this world
Without someone like you

When you say that you need me
Like only you can
Oh baby you don't really know what you've done
To the heart of this man

So baby tonight we will celebrate
And talk of the times til it gets real late
Yes baby tonight we'll appreciate
Just what we've got
So let the good times rock

Oh when you squeeze me
And say that you care
There's nothin' I know that could drag me away
When that feelin' is there

Oh the way that you move me
And makin' me feel
Well I could have sworn that I lived in a dream
If it wasn't for real

Oh baby tonight we will celebrate...


Open Your Heart

Days filled joy and days filled with sorrow
I don't know just what to do
Am I happy today, am I lonely tomorrow
Everything depends on you

And I've been waitin'
For the angels to knock on my door
I've been hopin'
That everything could be like before

Open your heart and tell me what's wrong
Why can't you talk like you used to do before
I don't know if I'm weak, I don't know if Im strong
Hey girl I can't cope anymore

And I've been waitin'...

Open your heart, let me hear you
Make up your mind, I want to hear you call
Open your heart, want to come near you
Make up your mind, before we lose it all

Maybe that time has its own way of healin'
Maybe it dries the tears in your eyes
But never change the way that I'm feelin'
Only you can answer my cries

And I've been waitin'...

Open your heart, let me hear you...


More Than Meets The Eyes

Now he walks in shadows
He's tryin' to pretend she never walked away
But it's not deceivin'
He's closer to an end he never could foresee

Where love goes
When love dies, heaven knows

But it's more than meets the eye
So much more than just a last goodbye
It's a cold and lonely heart
So sad and torn apart
Yes it's more than meets the eye

Now he's in for trouble
His luck has turned away, nobody seems to care
Well there's a cold moon risin'
And another lonely day has passed and she's not there

Where love goes...

But it's more than meets the eye...


Coast To Coast

You look out that window
For someone you know
But it all looks the same and time and again
It hurts you so
You wonder if always
You'll stand on your own
But hear in your mind, you'll get through this time
You're not alone

When time seems so lonely
And your day seems too long
You wonder if you will ever get through
And still be strong
With eyes full of sadness
You stand on you'r own
It tears you apart, but you know in your heart
You're not alone

Coast to coast and land to land
We're together hand in hand
Coast to coast and land to land...


Ready Or Not


Ready or not but I waste no time
I'm headin' out with some friends of mine
Holdin' on to what we've got
Oh even if we're ready or not

Ready or not but they're back in town
The word is out that this time around
They'll be lettin' go with all they've got
Oh even if we're ready or not

Rock me til I hit that floor
Rock me til I take no more
Roch this hungry heart of mine
Rock me down right to the ground
Rock me like you never done before
Then rock me just a little more

Ready or not but for all I know
We'll be hangin' on til it's time to go
We're always there with all we've got
Oh even if we're ready or not

Ready or not but i waste no time...

Rock me til I hit that floor...


Sign Of The Times

When the word is out from the other side
She turns around
Cause day and night she's waited patiently
Now a different kind of world out there
Is to be found
It's over not for everyone to see
This is the way it's meant to be

It's the way that we make things right
It's the way that we hold on tight
I know, it's the sigh of the times
It's the way that we make things turn
It's the way that we live and learn
I know, it's the sigh of the times

It wakes him up, he turns around
And now he's gone
He's been waitin' for this moment desperately
Now the time is right, he's turnin' back
He's going home
Yeah it's over now for everyone to see
This is the way it's meant to be

It's the way that we make things right...

And everytime it's on my mind
I fell so insecure
It worries me to end up here alone
But everytime I realize I need her more and more
I'd never make it on my own

It's the way that we make things right...


Just The Beginning

I can walk on fire, it ain't stopin' me
It's just showin' me the way
Come thunder, lighting all over me
I'd still be on my way

You can put me through loads of trouble
But in anyway

It's just the beginnin' and not the end
No use in pretendin' cause you can't win
It's just a beginnin', the beginnin'
Not the end

It's not a strange behavior, it's the way I am
Nothin' puts me down
And if a situation would get out of hand
I'd still be back around

You can put me through loads of trouble
But never bring me down

It's just the beginnin' and not the end...

I can walk on fire, it ain't stoppin' me...

You can put me through loads of trouble
But in any way

It's just the beginnin'
It's just the beginnin'
It's just the beginnin'
It's just the beginnin'

It's just the beginnin', and not the end...


Never Say Die

Oh who took that shot
Well I couldn't say, I was already down
Oh who set me up
Well I couldn't say cause I saw no one around

Now I'm lyin' here in desperation
I had it all worked out
Everything I hear is consolation
I've got this feelin' you should never say die

In my fantasy
There were days to come that I wanted so bad
Someone sold me out then it all was done
That dream was all that I had

Now I'm lyin' here in desperation...

Oh who took that shot...

Now I'm lyin' here in desperation...


Lights And Shadows

One night she came, in from the cold
Like a long lost friend, someone to hold
She said, don't ask me now
Cause what's in a name
But when I'm gone you'll neverbe the same

So won't you hold me now
Can't you see what I came here for
Save me now, cause I now
We'll keep on headin' through
Lights and shadows
We're talkin' lights and shadows

She came from far, with so much to tell
Cause when you're lookin' for love
You can walk through hell
Just like a ricohet, she might come and go
And one look can say more than you'll ever know

So won't you hold me now...

Oh lights and shadows
We're talkin' lights and shadows

So won't you hold me now...

Oh lights and shadows...

We keep on headin' through
Lights and shadows


Tower's Callin'

All set ready to go, but little does he know
He ain't comin' back no more
All set ready to fly, into that deep blue sky
Like so many times before

Now the tower's callin', there's no reply
And there's nothin' they can do
Now the night is fallin' before their eyes
Still no one's comin' through, callin'

Somewhere out in time, God knows what's on his mind
Is there a reason for his doubt
Somehow unaware just like he didn't care
There must be ways of gettin' out

Now the tower's callin', there's no reply...


Tomorrow


Will you be there beside me
If the world falls apart
And will all of out moments
Remain in your heart
Will you be there to guide me
All the way through, I wonder will you

Walk by my side, and follow my dreams
And bear with my pride, as strong as it seems
Will ou be there tomorrow

Will you be there beside me
As time goes on by
And be there to hold me
Whenever I cry
Will you be there to guide me
All the way through, I wonder will you

Walk by my side, and follow my dreams...

Тексты песен альбома Europe(1989)


In The Future To Come

So many years ago
the people on this earth, they were laughin'
They didn't think of anything else
than love and peace
But generations failed to see
that they were causin'
trouble for the future
They didn't know that one single war
would continue to increase

But I'll be beside you
cause I want to hide you
I'll cover my pain
or I'll go insane

Oh Lord, where will it end
When tomorrow is gone
Oh Lord, can we stop to pretend
that we can survive in the future to come

As long as you can see
As long as you can feel
There's no cause for alarm
As long as you can touch
As long as you can move
It ain't too bad
But one day or another
this world would maybe
be destroyed forever
A holocaust could maybe be spread
and drive us all mad


Farewell

There was a time when I was satisfied
There was a time when everything felt right
But now' the time for me to decide
and I've only got one solution in sight

Don't know where I'm going
but I know it feels right
And though my feelings are showing
I'm not afraid, it's alright

So long, farewell
I've got to go
Be strong, be well
I want you to know
that maybe we'll meet someday

Should I stay or should I go
It was not easy to decide
But you told me I already knew
I guess you wondered why I lied


Seven Doors Hotel

Four hundred years back in this time
Seven Doors Hotel
A massacre took place and a young man died
Opened one gate to Hell
The Eibon is open use your eyes
to read and learn
In the end it could be your turn

1981 traces were found
that could not exist in one´s mind
A woman could lead you totally deceive you
without your knowing she´s blind

Seven Doors Hotel
One of seven gates to Hell
Seven Doors Hotel
One of seven gates to Hell

Do always watch out for things
that you see but don´t understand
The Devil is there always somewhere
ready to command


The King Will Return

They were attacked by surprise
in the middle of the night
They didn't stand a single chance
A single chance to fight
After the battle they gathered around the king
they had never seen that man so sad

"I'm riding out to get those men
who hurt my people bad, so bad"

The king will return with gold in his hand
The castle will burn in the enemy land
And he will save our people

When two springs had passed
a messanger came down the track
He said that he heard a great news
"The king is coming back"
All the time he was gone
They suffered bad in misery
They didn't know they way

Everyone was shouting
"Save our kingdom now"

They suffered bad in pain
The time he was away
But maybe now they could survive
Now they could survive

When the king came down the hill
To his people and his land
There were many tears
that touched the ground
They marched in the sand
Yes, now they could start all over again
And live in peace throughout time

Everyone was shouting
when the king came down the hill

The king is returning with gold in his hand
The castle is burning
in the enemy land
the king is....


Boyazont


(Instrumental)


Children Of This Time

She spent one evening alone she's on fire
Thinking of you in a dream
You come home and she says you're a liar
Asking "Where have you been"

But she's the angel of your heart
There is not a thing that could set you apart
If nothing comes back 'till the end
If nothing goes wrong
She will always be your friend

You're a fool when you think she's someone
Who'll believe in a lie
You're a fool when you don't think she's someone
Whom you can't make cry

Cause you're the hero of her heart
There's not a thing that could set you apart
If nothing comes back 'till the end
If nothing goes wrong
You will always be her friend

You are the children of this time
You are the bread and the wine
You are companions 'till the end
You've got yourselves to defend

Give her more so much more and you'll find out
That it will come in return
Tell her more so much more about your feelings
And she will make them burn

Cause you're the children of today
There's not a thing that could stand in your way
If nothing comes back 'till the end
If nothing goes wrong
You will always be friends


Words Of Wisdom

So many words have passed through my mind
Never thought I'd be so blind
Wish I could understand you

So many things I've heard and seen
But still don't know what you mean
When you say "I'm leaving you"

I wish I could remember
Everything I've learnt

I've tried and tried to be so good
And I know I should
Say something before you go

Cause every time I've done something wrong
It's so hard to be strong
Gone are the feelings I want to show

Words of wisdom, teach me more
Words of wosdom, so much more


Paradize Bay

Lay your hand upon my shoulder
Say something that I want to hear
Time will wash out every trace of sadness
If only you are near

I've tried so hard to be somebody
But now I'm found

And we can be together
And travel far away
And we can love forever
In some of Paradize Bay

Carry me, oh bring me out of fantasy
Tell me this is real
Tell me that you won't give up
And tell me it's a good thing to feel

The wind is carrying your voice
The message is "Don't ever walk away"
And the only answer I can give to you
Is that I'm always gonna stay


Memories

There is no time to pay my sin
And everywhere blows a firewind
I'm all alone trying to survive

It's coming back into my head
Memories of the time we had
I'm trying hard to stay alive

The sun is down, the day is done
The sky is dark, and I'm on the run
Yesterday is so far away

The wind is strong, there's something wrong
But I just have to carry on
For tomorrow is a brand new day

Cause I left you without saying I'd go
Yes, I left you without letting you know

My memory is chasin' me
Over mountains high, and across the sea
Will I ever be well again
I want the strength to carry on,
What's done is done,
I want the power in me to remain strong

Тексты песен альбома Prisoners In Paradise (1991)


All Or Nothing

I'd bet my soul on a roll of a dice
I hit the ground runnin'
And I never think twice
I'd brave the heat of a
Wild cat fire to satisfy
My animal desire

Can't stop me now
I've set my sights on you
Right to your heart
My aim is true, that's why

All or nothing at all
Is how I feel about it
Won't stand my back to the wall
I'll find my way around it
All or nothing at all
There's nothing I won't do
And the one thing I want
All of is you

Don't want to labor at love
Rather do without
Won't carry the tourch
I want to burn down the house
I wanna give you all my lovin'
Baby listen to this
I would never settle for
Anything less

Can't stop me now
Once you've got me goin'
Can't slow me down
I'm driven by your motion


Halfway To Heaven

Another day has come
Can't face it on my own
I almost let you walk away
I guess I should have known
I'll give it to you straight
'Cause some things just can't wait
I've got to make it up to you
And I'll pray it's not too late

'Cause when you look at me
With those sad blue eyes
It stops me cold and I realize
You're all I need tonight

We're halfway to heaven
Lyin' beside you on a night
So still
We're halfway to heaven
I ask you if you'll stay and baby
Say you will

So what's a man to do
To get it through to you
Another lost and lonely night
Would break this heart in two

So let's take a chance
And it'll be alright
Just put your trust in me tonight
Girl we're almost there

We're halfway to heaven
There's something magic
'Bout the way you kiss
We're halfway to heaven
Runnin' with you baby
On a night like this
We're halfway to heaven
I never dreamed that
I could get this high
We're halfway to heaven
Girl I couldn't leave you
Even if I tried

You got me captured
In a crazy spin
You got me so I just
Can't tell the shape I'm in


I'll Cry For You

I never dreamed that I could fall
But something's come over me
Now I'm sittin' starin' at the wall
Afraid for my sanity

The sound of your voice
The touch of your skin
It's hauntin' me
I'm still tryin' to come to my senses
But I can't look back
So I'm takin' my chances

I wanna give you my heart
Give you my soul
I wanna lay in your arms
Never let go
Don't wanna live my life without you
But I know when you're gone

Like a fire needs a spark
Like a fool in the dark
Honey, I'll cry for you
Cry for you

Wonderin' why I'm runnin' scared
From what I believe in
I know that love is just another word
To say what I'm feelin'

For once in my life, the future is mine
It's callin' me
I've been searchin' so long for an answer
But it's too late now
So I'm takin' my chances

I wanna give you my heart
Give you my soul
I wanna lay in your arms
Never let go
Don't wanna live my life without you
But I know when you're gone

Like a fire needs a spark
Like a fool in the dark
Honey, I'll cry for you

For once in my life, the future is mine
It's callin' me
I've been searchin' so long for an answer
But it's too late now
So I'm takin' my chances

I wanna give you my heart
Give you my soul
I wanna lay in your arms
Never let go
Don't wanna live my life without you
But I know when you're gone

Oh honey, I'll cry for you

I wanna give you my heart
I'll cry for you
I wanna lay in your arms
Yeah honey, I'll cry for you
I wanna give you my heart
I'll cry for you
I wanna lay in your arms
Don't make me cry for you


Little Bit Of Lovin'

Give a little bit of lovin'
And I'll treat you right
Give a little bit of lovin'
And I'll stay the night

Just like a gypsy
I come to town
I've been longin' for that girl
I left behind
I might be a fool yeah
But come what may
I've been lovin' every minute
Everyday

Give a little bit of lovin'
And I'll treat you right
Give a little bit of lovin'
And I'll stay the night

I don't need nobody
I stand alone
But there's a woman that I
Like to call my own
I ain't got the money
To make her shine
But I've got plenty other ways
To make her mine

Give a little bit of lovin'
And I'll treat you right
Give a little bit of lovin'
And I'll stay the night

You got to give me some lovin'
I'm gonna make you feel so good

She's got deadly eyes
A twisted mind
She's one in a million
One of a kind
Cold chills runnin'
Down to the bone
She gives me lovin'
Like I've never known
We tumble and roll over
'Til the break of day
She's so wild
Blows my world away
With her there's nothin'
I wouldn't do
Baby we've got something
To hold on to
Lay it down and it's plain to see
The woman's got the best of me


Talk To Me

It's not like before baby
Tou can't come running back no more

And talk to me
When it cuts like a knife
You just talk to me baby
When the feelin' ain't right
Who do you think you're foolin'
Not me

Septermber rain is fallin'
I see you on the street
Just passin' by
And though your lips are smilin'
I can see the coldness in your eyes

So hell is what you've been through
I never thought I'd see you
'Round here no more
Now you need someone to talk to
Just like before

You only talk to me
When it cuts like a knife
You just talk to me baby
When you hurt deep inside
Who do you think you're foolin'
Not me

You had to have it your way
From you that was a promise
And a threat
Now you look for consulation
Just remember what you give
Is what you get

The hardest part was changin'
I was holdin' on to dreams
From yesterday
I used to be here waitin'
Here's what I say

You only talk to me
When it cuts like a knife
You just talk to me baby
When the feelin' ain't right
Who do you think you're foolin'
Not me


Seventh Sign

I've been sailin' 'cross the ocean
With the devil by my side
I've been flyin 'cross the great
Blue sky
But there's nowhere to hide
I've been standin' by the crossroads
I've been lookin' for a clue
I've been prayin' for the
Human race
There's not a lot I can do

I've been waitin' for the warnin'
As we look to the sky
Now we all seem lost
If you ask me why

It's the seventh sign
See the blood-red sky tonight
It's the seventh sign
See the blood-red sky

There's a voice out on the wasteland
It says we're runnin' out of time
I used to think the world
Could change
Lord I must have been blind
I've been cryin'out for mankind
I've been hangin' on to faith
But the comin' of a messenger
Says it's much too late

We could all come together
And gather all around
What good is war when we
All go down


Prisoners In Paradise

I want to learn how to fly
I want to be respected
I want to get lucky
I want to get out of this dump
I just want to watch TV
I want to be loved
I want to be different
I want a brother and sister
I'd just rather be forgotten
I want to save the world
I want to be understood
I want to be rich
Man, I just want to be somebody

Julie's got the word today
She lost her job just one last pay
Life don't come easy anymore
Still strugglin'on by herself
Got a picture of Jimmy
There on the shelf
And she looks at him and says
Why did we let it go

I know that sometimes baby
We didn't see things eye-to-eye
But I got just one question
Did we have to say goodbye

Just like prisoners in paradise
Still far from heaven's door
We had it all but still we
Wanted more
Now I realize that I can't
Turn back the future's here
To stay but hey
We're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday

Jimmy still recalls the night
When he took his guitar
And headed on out
To find the big time
That was his dream
He gave up his past
And made it alright
But there's something missin'
In his heart tonight
Sometimes what you want
Ain't what you need

He misses drivin' down
To the lake at night
Holdin' his baby
In his arms so tight
Ain't it hard to find illusions
When you're livin' in a memory

Just like prisoners in paradise
So close but yet so far
There will come a time
No matter who you are
When you ask yourself
Was it right or wrong
For me to turn away but hey
We're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday


Bad Blood

Always lookin' for a good time
She came on just like a hurricane
Man she was far too hot to handle
Like fightin' fire with gasoline

All I needed was compassion
I'd been out there on my own too long
But she hungered for my lovin'
That first bite chilled me
To the bone

Bad blood
Runnin' through my veins
Bad, bad blood
Is drivin' me insane

Hey I've become a wild one
I'mnot quite the man I used to be
Just like livin' on a knife edge
That woman put a spell on me

Bad blood
Runnin' through my veins
Bad, bad blood
Is drivin' me insane

Always lookin' for a good time
I come on just like a hurricane
Now I'm far too hot to handle
Like fightin' fire with gasoline


Homeland

Remember that summer
Down by the shoreline
I still can hear those old
Forgotten songs
And we made promises
To last forever
I just can't belive those
Days are gone

There used to be a place
That we could call our own
We used to think tomorrow
Was a long, long time
But sadness filled my heart
When I knew the moment had come
When I had to leave those days
Behind

I felt so free
Where I wanted to be
The days went so fast
How I wish they could last

So far from my homeland
I'm lost in time
My soul's still searchin'
For that peace of mind
Those sacred landscapes
Come miles around
And my heart's still beatin'
For those country grounds

Remember when our hearts
Were filled with laughter
It echoes in my trail
Of fallen tears
But no matter where I am today
Or what the future might bring
I will remember those
Long gone years

I can't let go
I wanna know
Does it have to end
For the best of friends

So far from my homeland
I'm lost in time
And my soul's still searchin'
For that peace of mind
Those sacred landscapes
Come miles around
And my heart's still beatin'
For those country grounds

Lord I know
That those days are gone
Long, long, gone
I felt so free
Where I wanted to be
The days went so fast
How I wish they could last


Got Your Mind In The Gutter

What's a man to do
When he's bein' accused
I hear you talkin'
It's real bad news
Nothin' happened with
That girl last night
So baby won't you
Tell me why

You got your mind in the gutter
You got your mind in the gutter
You're jumpin' to conclusions
And it's plain to see
You got your mind in the gutter
Don't blame me

So you say I'm foolin' 'round
Playin' the field
Baby let me tell you
It's no big deal
No I ain't gettin'
A little on the side
But I feel like a prisoner
With both hands tied

You say you found a number
On a matchbook in my coat
And lipstick smeared
On my shirt
I hate to disappoint you
And it scares me to death
That if your shovel ain't full
You just keep diggin' up
Some dirt

You've pushed me into a corner
You've got my back to thte wall
I stand accused of bein'
Some kind of liar
Hey I wouldn't hose you down
If you were on fire

You've got your mind in the gutter
You've got your mind in the gutter
Baby I keep those women
Far away from my skin
But since your mind's
In the gutter
Man I just can't win

I took her aside
To give her my point of view
What you tryin' to pull babe
It just ain't true
There should be a warnin'
Up above your cage
Sayin' don't feed the lion
She's in a state of rage

How can I prove
That I've done nothin' wrong
You know in your heart
That you're all that I want
Youre all fired up
Just a little bit too tight
Now babe whata can I tell you
You just ain't right

Aint got a baad reputation
So why you tearin' it down
Don't know what happened
But your mind's gone south
No I can't believe what comes
Out of your mouth

You've got your mind in the gutter
You've got your mind in the gutter
I know what you're sayin'
But it just ain't true
You've got your mind in the gutter
Baby shame on you
So you say I'm foolin' 'round
Playin' the field
You know better
'Cause it's no big deal
I ain't gettin' a little
On thte side
Baby what can I tell you
You just ain't right


'Til My Heart Beats Down Your Door

Hey you should know by now
I'm gonna take you down
Can't keep me out forever
'Cause now I'm back around
Put your best defense
I've made up my mind
I ain't like the others
I'm gonna make you mine

I'm gonna keep on knockin'
Knockin' like before
'Til my heart beats down your door
I'm gonna keep on comin'
Comin' back for more
'Til my heart
'Til my heart beats down your door

Baby you know you love me
So why do you pretend
When I could make you happy
If you just let me in
Well I remember better days
With you by my side
I'll keep you warm forever
And if it takes all night


Girl From Lebanon


It's time to break out from the cage
It's time to change your ways
It's time to find those
Shattered dreams
That vanished in the haze
It's time to lose those
Concrete shoes
They held you down too long 'cause
Trouble days have come and gone

And the night has just begun
Another dawn is yet to come
Carry on my little one
Girl from lebanon

It's time to meet the changes
They come from all around
It's time for you to realize
Freedom has been found
It's time to meet the future
And forget about the past
It's time to make a good thing last

And the night has just begun
Another dawn is yet to come
Carry on my little one
Girl from Lebanon

It's time to cut the barbwire
And walk out on the street
It's time that we stayed
Up all night
And lose all kinds of sleep
It's time to wear those bright
Blue jeans
And let your hair hang down
The word of peace is goin' 'round

Тексты песен альбома Start From The Dark (2004)


Got to Have Faith

The race is on
I found my way
Something has changed since I've been away
The fear is gone
and I can't wait
I feel the rut, still got dues to pay

Well I had enough
Gonna stand up straight
Rebuild my life
Well you gotta have faith
and it will be tough
gonna fight each day
'til I'm back on top
Well you gotta have faith

Full speed ahead
I waste no time
Now I know how to live my life
I've been knocked down - come back around
It put some soul in this heart of mine

Well I had enough
Gonna stand up straight
Rebuild my life
Well you gotta have faith
and it will be tough
gonna fight each day
'til I'm back on top
Well you gotta have faith

I get the feelin'
I can go that extra mile
I get the feelin'
I can reach that open sky
I get the feelin'
Things will never be the same
I get the feelin'
That I can WIN again!

Well I had enough
Gonna stand up straight
Rebuild my life
Well you gotta have faith
and it will be tough
gonna fight each day
'til I'm back on top
Well you gotta have faith
Well you gotta have faith
Well you gotta have faith


Start from the Dark

Thought you were ordinary
Would not amount too much
I guess they never knew you
You found the place they couldn’t touch

Said you were nothing special
Always kept to yourself
You had to fight your own way
There’s always been touch too much at stake.

What you gonna do ?
'Cause you’re just like me
What you gonna do ?
Tonight, this is where we go
To find out who we really are
We’ve got nothing left to lose
Tonight, this is how we breathe
To put some strength back in our hearts
We’ve got nothing left to lose
We start from the dark

You'll never pass for someone
Who'll find a place in life
You'd sooner take that last breath
To give away your heart and mind

What you gonna do ?
'Cause you’re just like me
What you gonna do ?
Tonight, this is where we go
To find out who we really are
We’ve got nothing left to lose
Tonight, this is how we breathe
To put some strength back in our hearts
We’ve got nothing left to lose
We start from the dark
Start from the dark

What you gonna do ?
'Cause you’re just like me
What you gonna do ?
Tonight
Tonight, this is where we go
To find out who we really are
We’ve got nothing left to lose
Tonight, this is how we breathe
To put some strength back in our hearts
We’ve got nothing left to lose
We start from the dark
Start from the dark


Flames

The pressure is mounting,
I'm ready and countin'
There's something I've got to be

I'm fearless, I'm feeling
Scared senseless, who needs this,
Still something I've got to be

There is no going back, this is what we know
We come to entertain, asking you to follow
Be born to self-destruct, here it comes again
A desire to go down in flames

My heart's racing, my legs shakin',
Is more drama in the making
I had a feeling this day would come

So are we really good or just delirious,
But if you stop us now it could get serious
I'm sorry, mama, for what I've become

There is no going back, this is what we know
We come to entertain, asking you to follow
Be born to self-destruct, here it comes again
A desire to go down in flames

You can turn it off, but it never stops,
Madness or not, I risk everything I've got
And if I've got to do it all over again
I'd still believe in these friends
And the mess they get me in

There is no going back, this is what we know
We come to entertain, asking you to follow
Be born to self-destruct, here it comes again
A desire to go down in flames

Flames... Flames...


Hero

It's not like I wouldn't dream
If you had not show the way
It's not like I wouldn't fight
Not knowing 'bout your life
It's not like I wouldn't stand
Right here with my friends

You threw us all alive
When our days slipped away
You gave us of your time

'Cause you are my hero
My fridaynight
You wrote the soundtrack to my life
And gave me something
To hold on to
When I was growing up
You were the rock
In my life

It's not like I live my days
By every word you spoke
Like I'm up every night
Drinking with your ghost
It's not like I can't look back
Without movin' on

You threw us all alive
When our days slipped away
You gave us of your time

You are my hero
My fridaynight
You wrote the soundtrack to my life
And gave us kids
A chance to dream
Days when I had enough
You were the rock
In my life

You still throw me that like
As my days slipp away
You give me of your time

You're still my hero
My fridaynight
You wrote the soundtrack to my life
You give me something
To hold on to
As I'm still growing up
You are the rock
In my life


Wake Up Call

Hello what keeps you going
The way we're running through these years
I guess they're showing

I don't have no clever lines
To explain my state of mind
Well it doesn't matter
It's just a while since I could feel
This song is what I need
Like a wake up wake up call

Hello what made you come here
You defy all kinds of logic
When you don't stay clear

I don't talk the way you do
I guess you feel the same way too
But it doesn't matter
We meet somewhere in between
This song and what we need
Like a wake up wake up call

We're just laying down this track
Guess I'll have to call you back
But it doesn't matter
We'll connect again one day
An the song will find it's way
Like a wake up wake up call


Reason


And everybody will get to play
The hand they're given
And everybody will deserve
The space they live in
And everybody will get to feel
Some peace within
And everybody will get
Someone to talk with

Cause there must be a reason
Why you're keeping me alive
On broken days like this
There must be a reason
A hope that God exist

And everybody will lead a life
They feel will matter
And everybody will know such a simple thing
Like laughter

Cause there must be a reason
Why you're keeping me alive
On broken days like this
There must be a reason
A hope that God exist

After all the fear is gone
There's place where everybody goes
After all the feelings show
There's a secret everybody knows
After all the fear is gone
There's place where everybody goes
After all the feelings show
There's a secret everybody knows


Song #12

Hoping you will find this message
The words begin to leave my mouth
Through the capsule down the wire

Yeah you came for love setting of that killer spark
You came for love tearing all my doubts apart

Boost the signal need some gain
Amplify my deepest thoughts
The consol guides my masterplan

Cause you came for love setting of that killer spark
Yeah you came for love tearing all my doubts apart

And I'll reach you through the air
And I'll reach you through the air

Hoping you will find this message
As I watch the faders move
I think of how you make me feel

Cause you came for love setting of that killer spark
Yeah you came for love tearing all my doubts apart
I'll reach you through the air


Run With You

(Instrumental)


Sucker

She works hard to enjoy the weekends
All glammed up to describe the feelin'
makin her way through the crowd
somethin' is drivin' her wild

(Chorus)
She's turnin up the stereo
She wants everbody to know
She's fixin to see the show
She's a s-s-s-s-sucker for a guitar hero

Her obsession is legedary
And all her boyfriends are temporary
Her idea of a perfect man
plays custom trough a marshall amp.

(Chorus)
She's turnin up the stereo
She wants everbody to know
She's fixin to see the show
She's a s-s-s-s-sucker for a guitar hero

(Guitar solo)

God knows she can't controll her weakness
Sometimes she settles for local talent
Everone knows it's a phase
Just tappin' to kill some time
Cause' she'll be back in a wrackfull place
Where the trucks roll into town

(Chorus)
Now she wont need a stereo
Cause' everbody will know
That she's right there watchin' the show
She'll be throwin all her love around
Now the boys are back in town
Until she just can't take it no more
She's a s-s-s-s-sucker for a guitar hero


Spirit of the Underdog

Seen you round I know your face
Watched you try to grow up with grace
Seen that heart out on your sleeve
Like it's so much life you're dying to feel dying to feel

Cause if you got to steal you've got to steal the show
It's the spirit of the underdog
And if you got to break you've got to break the mould
It's the spirit of the underdog

I've seen you reach that main event
And make it look like an accident
Your need for love can't be replaced
Just put away at least for today at least for today

Cause if you got to steal you've got to steal the show
It's the spirit of the underdog
And if you got to break you've got to break the mould
It's the spirit of the underdog


America

You'd think by now I've learned to fake it
You'd think by now I'd find my peace
And there's no risk for me worth taking
You'd think that I'd go quietly
But the journey's still on for my America

You'd think by now I'd take the easy way
And be content with what I've seen
You'd think by now I'd get it in to my head
I'm the same boy I have always been
So the journey's still on for my America

You'd think by now I'd be to jaded
To feel what love can do
You'd think by now that I've done everything I can
In finally reaching you

But the journey's still on for my America


Settle for Love

Don't misunderstand me I was just a little kid
Thinking that the street life was the only way to live
Always holding out for another thrill

We've come a long long way
So tell me why can't we settle for love
Is it that hard at the end of the day
Tell me why can't we settle for love before it's too late

Whatever it is you think you're missing
Time to let your heart go
Cause when you've walked this kind of distance
We can't fool each other anymore
Maybe there is a light that won't go out

We've come a long long way
So tell me why can't we settle for love
Is it that hard at the end of the day
Tell me why can't we settle for love before it's too late

Тексты песен альбома Secret Society (2006)


Secret Society

Running against the line, against the time
Wondering what the fuzz is all about
Finding a way to dream away your love
Taking it in before it takes me out

Just like a Secret Society, yeah...


Always The Pretenders

Maybe we forced the deal to live in some kind of blow
Maybe we broke the seal, Cracks begin to show
Maybe we crossed the line, got everything of the ground
Maybe we lit the fuse, a habit hard to lose

All i can remember, all i can recall is you
Telling me theres been an, accident
Always the pretenders, always thought that love would do
Every day i miss your, innocence

Maybe we ran the lights, somehow we caused a scene
Maybe we learn to fight, as part of our routine
Maybe we jumped the wall, suddenly tipped the scale
Maybe we tried to hard, so afraid to fail

All i can remember, all i can recall is you
Telling me theres been an, accident
Always the pretenders, always thought that love would do
Every day i miss your, innocence

Something's lost and what its worth
You and me this is our church
There is still some love 'round here

All i can remember, all i can recall is you
Telling me theres been an, accident
Always the pretenders, always thought that love would do
Every day i miss your, innocence


Love Is Not The Enemy

Glowing on the outside
Coming by the moonlight
Looking at this blue thing
Falling by the waste time

The years keep on calling
Riding on a moonbeam
Having on a daydream

Crash the barricades, raise the alarm
We've forgotten how to feel
Break the silence, shout it out
Call the angels there's a friend in need
Love is not the enemy
Love is not the enemy

Looking at the bright side
Walking in the sunshine
Loving this blue thing
Want it in my life

The years keep on calling
Headed for Venus
No sign of life

Crash the barricades, dont be afraid
We've forgotten how to feel
Break the silence, shout it out
Call the angels there's a friend in need
Love is not the enemy
Love is not the enemy

Oh, can you feel it, does anybody care
Oh, do you need it, say a little prayer
Oh, can you feel it, does anybody care
Oh, do you need it, say a little prayer

Crash the barricades, raise the alarm
We've forgotten how to feel
Break the silence, shout it out
Call the angels there's a friend in need
Love is not the enemy
Love is not the enemy

Oh, can you feel it, does anybody care
Oh, do you need it, say a little prayer
Oh, can you feel it, does anybody care
Oh, do you need it, say a little prayer


Wish I Could Believe

If you let me i will
pick up the remains
of your day

If you let me i will
take a hold of your hand
tell you that you're sane

You say: give me what you've got
give me, what you've got
Show me what we're not
There must be a plan for the every man
give me what you can

Cause I, wish i could believe in God
so i could move ahead
I know i cant believe in God
time to move ahead

If you let me i will
I will soften the blow
of the forces that play

If you let me i will
I would find some grace
in the modern day

You say: give me what you've got
give me, what you've got
Show me what we're not
There must be a plan for the every man
give me what you can

Cause I, wish i could believe in God
so i could move ahead
I know i cant believe in God
time to move ahead


Let The Children Play

My mother would tell me
better stay in line
you gotta look for the magic
if there's a way there comes a time

My dad used to tell me
you gotta work real hard
keep it straight and simple
from the head, then the heart

If you'd ask my brother
i know what he'd say
Let the children play

It's not where we're coming from
it's how we turn from here
We know where we want to go
we just need a line, to get us there...

My sister would show me
to land on your feet
you got to suffer fools
before you get, life and need

So God would you tell me
is there an other way
Let the children play

It's not where we're coming from
it's how we turn from here
We know where we want to go
we just need the line, to get us there...

My mother would tell me
better stay in line
you gotta look for the magic
if there's a way there comes a time

It's not where we're coming from
it's how we turn from here
We know where we want to go
we just need the line, to get us there...


Human After All

Live, baby life is loud
We'll make it through the filth and the glory
Give, more of what you've got
Funk it up, and tell your story

For every dream that got away
We found our ordinary day
For every blue sky turning gray
We found imaginary ways
I look at you and where we are
We're human after all

Time, there's no remedy
Just hold our broken hearts together
Your touch, all that chemestry
Now im lost, unlikely defender

For every dream that got away
We found our ordinary day
For every blue sky turning gray
We found imaginary ways
I look at you and where we are
We're human after all

It's alright, when the day is done
It's alright, there's something better
It's alright, when the morning comes
It's alright, there's nothing better

For every dream that got away
We found our ordinary day
For every blue sky turning gray
We found imaginary ways
I look at you and where we are
We're human after all


The Getaway Plan

Hey, Im the voice in your head
A friend that you once left for dead
I've been buisy, did you miss me
No, you're not paranoid, Im back to fill the void
Did you understand, The getaway plan

Im the shiver that runs, up your spine
A strange kind of piece of your mind
You've been lonely, Im the only
I know you're damaged goods, you did the best you could
I think you understand, the getaway plan

Can you feel me, can you reach me
I lived a thousand lives, feels like i've just arrived
I think you understand, the getaway plan


A Mother's Son

There's a light, a different kind of light
when we close, we close our eyes
There's a place, a distant kind of place
we cant let go, just cant let go

There's a faith, a stronger kind of faith
it makes you try, just a little harder
There's a time, a lonely kind of time
when you know, you simply know, that you just cant fake it

A mothers son
knows he never walks alone
no matter what, he's become
Hard as he tries, he can never give it back
life's to short, for a mothers son

There's a rage, a silent kind of rage
it makes you live, out on the edge
There's a pain, a different kind of pain
knowing time, will change everything, you just cant fake it

A mothers son
knows he never walks alone
no matter what, he's become
Hard as he tries, he can never give it back
life's to short, for a mothers son

...you just cant fake it

A mothers son
knows he never walks alone
no matter what, he's become
Hard as he tries, he can never give it back
life's to short, for a mothers son

There's a light, a different kind of light...


Forever Traveling

A voice that fly, is broken just the same
You spin this life around
You bring me where some harder soul remain
From a cold, cold place in time

And you say: I, I just know how you make me feel
you take it all the way, you send me all the way
Oh, I, I just know where I want to be
Forever wandering, forever traveling

A voice that cry, but im smiling just the same
You show me where to look
I was skin and bones, just circeling the sun
one glimps was all it took

And you say: I, I just know how you make me feel
you take it all the way, you send me all the way
Oh, I, I just know where I want to be
Forever wandering, forever traveling

Somewhere in my mind, Im under the golden gate
Somewhere in my heart, remember sitting by the lake
Sometimes i cant feel, the wheel from the sky, its been turning

Oh, I, I just know how you make me feel
you take it all the way, you send me all the way
Oh, I, I just know where I want to be
Forever wandering, forever traveling


Brave And Beautiful Soul

I see you all cynical
it's the amunition that you need
Here's another song about empathy
Please yourself think what you will

In her light that shines I fall apart
Her life is blessed and I dont understand
The brave and beautiful soul
brave and beautiful soul

Here's to you all sensible
Never taken time to stand for something
Hey, the future always come round here to soon
I just cant leave here doing nothing

In her light that shines I fall apart
In her darkness, how she wins my heart
The brave and beautiful soul
brave and beautiful soul

An emotional response
Sometimes better than an intellectual one

In her light that shines I fall apart
Her life is blessed and I dont understand
The brave and beautiful soul
brave and beautiful soul


Devil Sings The Blues

Today, Im the dirt beneth your feet
At your beckon call
Today, Im down on my bended knees
I learned to crawl

Days like theese,
it's like I never lived at all

And my heart is open
And my eyes are open
Today, I give my life to you
And my arms are open
And my faith is open
Today, the devil sings the blues

Tonight, angels presence fill the room
so this is how it feels
Tonight, the devil takes the long way round
There will be no deal

Times, like theese
it's like I never lived at all

And my heart is open
And my eyes are open
Tonight, I give my life to you
And my arms are open
And my faith is open
Tonight, the devil sings the blues

And my heart is open
And my eyes are open
Tonight, I give my life to you
And my arms are open
And my faith is open
Tonight, the devil sings the blues
