POOR MAN´S COPYRIGHT
March 2014

not much fun
under the stars tonight
smart drinks
highfaluting talk
you´ve had enough
of crooked forecasts
I´ve had my share
of heartbreak-row
I might have been born
a political animal
swapping tunes
horses and depts
you wear it well
too straight to analyse
we´re still in time
it´s up to you
but if you want to
this is all for you
sort of bits and pieces
it´s just all for you
I know we both have seen
better days
it´s all for you
not that hard to handle
it´s just all I´ve got
rather used but working
I know it´s hard to stand to have
no direction home
but I´m so tired of all that
self-reflection
I want some easy action
lots of space
under the stars tonight
let´s scare off
all jugglers and ghosts
you´ve had your share
of soft excuses
but now you´re here
it´s up to you
and if you want to
this is all for you
sort of bits and pieces
it´s just all for you
I know we both have seen
better days
it´s all for you
not that hard to handle
it´s just all I´ve got
rather used but working
alright

MUCH WATER, NO TIME
January 2017

you think you´ve made it
´cause you´ve put me on                                                                 
flat-out lying might make you
feel real good                        
but it´s only money you drag
through your dead life
tin on wheels
on a lost highway
there´s that river flowing
ain´t yours or mine
much water baby
no time 
yes I get your smile
when you pass by
your nose up                                                 
in a perfect sky
your  hips so stiff
you can hardly move
in your super-smart                          
black velvet shoes
there´s that river flowing
ain´t yours or mine
much water baby
no time 
one day
we will meet again
and you´re gonna ask me
why you feel so bad
why money don´t seem
to help at all
why you´re always gaping
at the same old door
there´s that river flowing
ain´t yours or mine
much water baby
no time 
your feet now swim
in your smart shoes
you´ve drowned your car
while trying to sell the moon
your nose keeps running                              
night and day
and your bank-man says
this must be the end
there´s that river flowing
ain´t yours or mine
much water baby
no time

CHUCK SMILES
September 2016

Chuck smiles
checks the field
confidently slow
"hey girls
cool down"
after loosing every
highland pony show
he ain´t got no time for
bad vibrations
as he shuffles
round the byre 
better stick to sweet
imagination
you got me walking on water
you got me flying to the stars
and everything´s so good today
no obstacle
in my way
everything´s so good today
you got me dancing all night
under a full moon
and all them fools
they nose out
chances
while they´re dreaming
of a perfect weekend
someday somewhere
alright
Chuck smiles
hits the road
along fences
ditches
and holes
a scrapped stud
on high heels
taking the stage at the
Eldorado
hard times for wise
negociations
he just plays it
loud
well I ain´t looking for no
right situation
I want some of the same stuff
and I want that stuff right now 
and everything´s so good today
no obstacle
in my way
yes everything´s just right today
you got me walking on water
you got me flying
cause everythng´s
so good today
no demon
in my way
yes everything´s just right today
you got me dancing all nioght
under a full moon

INDEPENDENCE, LOW BUDGET AND ME
January 2017

she´s trouble
she grunts from the pillion
"get up
follow that car"
another loser
getting back his queen
in a bath of hope
close to midnight
streets are clean
contractions done
oh it´s a girl
on the 9th of November
1989
two stops from Berlin
got some paintings naked
but I ain´t got no time
to try to
fool them with blood
and Lizzy she´s gone
but she´s left her purple hat
but I ain´t wise enough
to simply sleep
Kid and Rosie
are waiting on me
at The World´s End
they´ll gamble till noon
they play the best music
the right thing
anytime
I´m a happy man
when the ball´s rolling
I´m just sick of all talk
at times
and then I`m a lomesome rat
with only used tunes
and nobody there
to blame
I got Kid´s tequilla
I´m back in my cab
into the sunrise
we disappear
independence
low budget
and me
independence
low budget
and me

SOMETHING`S REALLY WRONG WITH MY BABY
March 2016

strange times
no matter what I do
my baby burns
she´s full- time upset
"have you seen them
chasing our kids
have you heard
they won´t pay no bills
I swear I´llget me
some gun"
she´s so diligent 
with only good intentions
she says we´re down
on bloody losing street
driven to bust
by all them poor souls
"have you seen them
scouting our cars
they don´t know
a thing about work
and have you heard
they´re up to conquer Berlin
drugs for free
on fake Arabians"
something´s really wrong
with my baby
her smile ain´t that frank
anymore
something´s really wrong
with may baby
she used to speak
so seriously
now she whispers so
mysteriously
strange days
no matter where I go
my baby´s there
dressed up in
worn out suits
well I don´t feel
that good to see you
so moved by your
big romantic stuff
maybe we´ld be
better off if we´ld
sort things out
in a more sober way
something´s really wrong
with my baby
her smile ain´t that cool
anymore
something´s really wrong
with may baby
she used to speak 
so carefully
now she shouts at me
all the time
seems she only worries
for the next hot story  
flat enough to sell
to some folks that hurry
to get the right story to worry
some crowd that
needs the stuff 
to smell their blood
throbbing
something´s really wrong
with my baby
her smile now ain´t 
no gift at all
something´s really wrong
with may baby
she used to be 
such a clever girl
so keen on news about
this great ol´world
but memories now
don´t do at all

A BRIGHTER DAY
February 2015

last night the moon fell
down into the sea
without leaving any
explanation at all
they missed to show it
live on TV
so they sent a quick
poll from the shore
and I laid back
I watched the darkness rule
after I´d kicked my TV
out through the door
putting on sanctions or
selling guns
sorry, chiefs
I´m out
I am moving
moving
moving on
to a brighter day
moving
moving
moving on
to a brighter day
I guess I´ld sleep
for a thousand years
if I could chalk up time
somewhere
I´ld dream of doing
nothing at all
I wouldn´t wanna figure out
what´s going on
but sleep
to me is a runaway-train
that´s always passing
wherever I stay
I like the Whisky
and the Whisky likes me
together we
slip away
and we´re moving
moving
moving on
to a brighter day
moving
moving
moving on
to a brighter day 
you say they´ve had it
in the morning-news
the moon finally
has shown up again
somehow he´d made it
to the other side
seems even big boys sometimes
do need a plan
and I guess they´re right
this world should be a better place
if everything was right there
where it belongs
come on and get your dancing-shoes
let´s listen to our favourite songs               
let´s stray
all night long
and we´re moving
moving
moving on
to a brighter day
moving
moving
moving on
to a brighter day
moving
moving on
to a brighter day
moving
moving
moving on
to a brighter day

PERSONAL BACK-UP
February 2015

valentine´s 
all over
a million words
all done
no dreams
left in your bed
where only shadows
sleep
hard tears have flown
down the river 
I´ve watched them
disappear
you stare
through walls
I get up at five
wasted and
so sick
as your personal back-up
right or wrong
scrubbing blood off all carpets
that you step on
´cause you´re my lady
and I´m your man
this will go
on and on and on and on
and on
right through eternity
sometimes I sit at the shore
and wonder
why ask for whatever
to blame
we´re never
getting really close
too bricked to fake
no use at all to stay
in this losing game
as your personal back-up
year after year
trying to clean bad corners
that you don´t wanna see
´cause you´re my lady
and I´m your man
this will go
on and on and on and on
and on
your personal back-up
together through life
I got hurt too
but I´ll survive
we´ve lost our good times
and now don´t care at all
this won´t go
on and on and on and on
and on
this won´t go
on and on and on and on
and on
this won´t go
on and on and on and on
and on
not for one day

LET IT RAIN
February 2014

she goes down to the water
as the tide leaves
lights a cigarette
towards the cold wind
some people walk by
on that endless beach
she´d been waiting a long time
he won´t come
she enters that bar
on top of the dunes
watches the staff
cleaning fish
orders a pint
gets a cup of tea
she´d been thinking a lot
never caught one word
a full moon´s rising
above the shore
stars glimmer
through torn clouds
laughter all around
time to get up
she´d been dreaming some dreams
in a strange world
out on the street
she passes the park
wet benches
rustling bins
a raven crows
as a trombone sounds
she´d been far away
now she´s back
and she smells the mist
down from the harbour
the smoke from the oven
in the kitchen that night
they danced around the chairs
and fell
down on the floor
under a pale blue sky
with plain plans
such a good feeling
before everything suddenly
slipped away
out of her hands
she felt like an actor
who´s gonna pay
for that damage done
and who ever´s gonna
be to blame
let it flow
out of this hut
over the sea
let´s work straight up
to the mornimg dawn
let it sleep let it loose
let it all fall down
and let it rain
let it rain
let it rain
let it rain 
let it rain rain rain
down on me rain rain
down on me rain rain
down on me rain rain
she watches the water
as the tide comes in

BROKEN DREAMS
December 2016                                                                            

she took my brolly
rushed through the door
down on the
boulevard of broken dreams
she ain´t got no fun
but she wants it now
long time no thrill
now you better watch out
there goes my baby
there she goes now
in a brand new
revolution-coat
no more hard stuff
all day
now things will never
be the same again
never again
from Plymouth Rock
to Blonde on Blonde
from theBerlinWall
to her last year´s book
baby´s on fire
and her tanks are full
long time no thrill
now you better watch out
there goes my baby
there she goes now
under a brand new
revolution-cap
no more big thoughts
all day
now things will never
be the same again
never again
she says
“you gotta bump them strangers out
rage is the sign of the times
it´s all about honesty”
long time no thrill
now you better watch out
there goes my baby
there she goes now
under a rotten
blood-soaked flag
a roaring spectre
all day
don´t want my brolly
back again
never again

SOME TIME NOW
June 2017                                                                                                             
 
no regrets
that´s what they want to say
at the end of the road
but most of the time
wherever I go
I see no smiling face at all
I´ve been driving all night
I´ve been talking to myself
now I`m straight on track
with a butterfly mind                                                 
come on babe
won´t you give me chance
`cause I
I havn´t come to seize you                                       
all I want is to please you
some time now
I ain´t here to disturb you
I´ll do my best to deserve you
it´s some time now
paradise
some think they got it booked
as a better place than this
but as far as I know
no one´s ever been there
why bet on trouble when you´re looking for bliss                 
you´re always so tough
you know when to quit                                  
gonna blank all bad days                                                     
and the strange-weather-blues                                            
come on babe
won´t you give me another try
`cause I
I havn´t come to cheat you                                       
all I want is to please you
some time now
I ain´t here to hurt you
I´ll do my best to deserve you
it´s some time now
look at the clouds up in the sky
days are passing much too fast
in such an eternal flow
yes, I
I havn´t come to annoy you
I really want to enjoy you
some time now
we could leave all tiffs behind us
why not just keep it simple
it´s some time now
some time now

ALL OVER AGAIN                                                                                          
April 2015 

maybe I´ll write you a letter
maybe I´ll take the next plane
and then we look at each other
as out two of passing trains
then I might sing you a love song
on a bike in the rain                                       
and when we think it´s all over
we start all over again
there´s something in the air when we meet
that rumbles when we´re apart
I know it´s not that easy ´cause it feels so easy
and I know I shouldn´t take it so hard
sometimes I´m down on the bottom
and then I´m up on the moon
and then I know exactly
what I´m gonna do
and then I sit beside you
smiling all the time                                        
and when we think it´s all over
we start all over again
maybe I´ll write you a letter
but then I might need some time
and as days pass so quickly
I might just say that I´m fine
this really makes me wonder
sometimes I´ld like to stay                            
but when we think it´s all over
we start all over again
when we think it´s all over
we start all over again

PARADISE-ROAD

August 2014

they shot the weatherman down
last night in a TV-show
he´d got lost in polls
big-time online
now there´s no bad news anymore
left with only mysteries
we´re waltzing down
paradise-road
for times like these
were built to last
slick glances time after time
just like watching the river flow
there´s that woman on the hill
I´m playing with the jack of hearts
all settled on both sides of the street
long since familiar
blithe talk
now things have changed
and times like these
were built to last
this is the wrong scene
in the wrong season
broken clouds 
above the shore
better stop before it´s
getting too easy
well I´ve never seen you
like this before
no regrets no guilt
no pain anymore
all fences clean
in paradise-road
we´ld swim out in the open sea and
I´ld drink all the time
sentimental
but true
for times like these
were built to last
yes times like these
were built to last
paradise-road
was built to last

EVERYBODY`S DARLING
December 2015

these boots you wear
too safe to walk in
and the words you say
too smart to get somewhere
if this is one step at a time, baby
I guess we´re down on the bottom
some tunes you´re on
will change this world one day
but I feel fine
in just a silent room
if it´s you I want don´t worry, babe
I just think we both could get started
this car´s on hire, fully insured
and I´m just everybody´s darling
it´s alright
I just want to gamble
no limit and all exits free
don´t be shy
there´s no point to wonder
no future no past
ain´t I sweet?
ain´t I lovely?
that road ahead
leads into the open
no stars above
no great moon shining 
so mysteriously
if love is what you make of it
maybe it´s time you´ve got to steal sometimes
and if you´re up to be a better man
I´ll be whatever you want me to
it´s alright
I just want to gamble
no limit and all exits free
don´t be shy
there´s no point to wonder
no future no past
it´s alright
tonight I want to gamble
all rules are up to you
don´t be shy
I won´t even wonder
why there´s no tomorrow, baby
ain´t I sweet?
ain´t I lovely?
ain´t I sweet?
ain´t I lovely?
