FOOLS

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Backing Vocals: Katharina Hilberger

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


i got a kick right in my pants | maybe this is the final chance | to win the one and only fight | and get all things right | blows on the back of the neck | i stumbled on the wrongest track | what's it about ? it's for the sake | of careless mistakes

 

fools, listen to me | it's bloody funny! | fools, let's go insane | all in vain, down the drain | fools, here and there, (everywhere) | all around, i don't care | fools, out in the streets | dreams become bittersweet

trip wires of my fantasy | oh, how i slipped up silly me ! | don't tell me that it is a crime ? | i can't turn back time | mirror, mirror on the wall | who is the most foolish of all ? | so many troubles on my way | what price will i pay ?

 

fools, listen to me | it's bloody funny | fools, let's go insane | all in vain, down the drain | fools, here and there, (everywhere) | all around, i don't care | fools, out in the streets | dreams become bittersweet

BLAZE THE TRAIL

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Backing Vocals: Katharina Hilberger

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


i can go everywhere | down to hell or upstairs | blaze the trail all that way | heya hey out of the way | i can get what i want | if i'll come to the front | blaze the trail all that way | heya hey out of the way | i can feel with my head | i will do what i've said | blaze the trail all that way | heya hey out of the way | i can think with my heart | finishing what i start | blaze the trail all that way | heya hey out of the way

 

i'm singing with joy of emotion | my song is a gift made of love | my mind is as wide as the ocean | i'm feeling the drive to get off

so i blaze the trail and reach this world of mine | 'cause it's high time that i cross the line

 

i'm singing with joy of emotion | my song is a gift made of love | my mind is as wide as the ocean | i'm feeling the drive to get off

 

so i blaze the trail and reach this world of mine | 'cause it's high time that i cross the line | i can go everywhere | down to hell or upstairs | blaze the trail all that way | heya hey out of the way | ... | heya hey out of my way !

BORDERLINE

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Backing Vocals: Katharina Hilberger

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


some people think there's no way | they keep straight on as they say | i tell you, baby, they will go astray | but we both just fly away | like hungry love-birds of prey | we put the best by for a rainy day

 

now we can walk along the borderline | between the coloured world of love and grey

sometimes we enter the fray | and freedom is a child's play | i beg you, baby, trust me, i'm no stray | as yesterday so today | things go crisscross, it's okay | you give me thousands of reasons to stay

 

now we can walk along the borderline | between the coloured world of love and grey | now we can walk along the borderline | life is cross-border anyway

HEARTBEAT

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Backing Vocals: Katharina Hilberger

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


i´m sold on you | there´s no ending in sight | my heart is really racing when you hold me tight | but everyone who would be in my shoes | must be a little bit confused | i get excited by day and by night | but it´s a fact that barking dogs never bite | that´s why i would rather spend you a beer | together we could banish the fear

 

i´ve got that heartbeat | that skips for joy and pain | please, hear my heartbeat | it pounds through all my veins

i´m looking forward to future and love | i put my trust in the lucky star above | my lust for living will be never be gone | my heartbeat goes on and on | my life is thrilling | i never feel bored | and if there´s a burden | it´ll fall overbard you are like me | our hearts beat as one | my heartbeat goes on and on | it makes boom boom ... (making boom boom)

 

i feel my heartbeat | dancing on the floor | you feel my heartbeat | knocking at the door | i feel my heartbeat | going up the wall | you feel my heartbeat | jumping like a ball | this is my heartbeat | heartbeat | this is my heartbeat | sound of my heartbeat | boom boom boom.

TAKE ME BACK AND SMILE

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


ROBOT-VOICE : take me back and smile...

 

don't do the things you used to do | don't close the door to a better view | and it all works out | down to the present day it's true | i'm here and i'll be there for you | and it all works out |no matter if the night will fall | if the dawn will break | tear down the wall | forget all your doubts | follow the signs to hear my call | come on, have a try and first of all | forget all your doubts

ROBOT-VOICE : take me back and smile...

 

don't play it cool | listen to your soul | disclose your feelings, lose control | now it's all allowed | down to the ground and on the whole | we have to do a little backward roll | now it's all allowed

UNDER MY WINGS

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Backing Vocals: Katharina Hilberger

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


sailing close to good old time | watching for new hills to climb | i don't know where i'm going | my way leads to the road to nowhere | your shining eyes light up my heart | a perly sunrise beats the dark | you dont know what it's like | to dance in a world of nothingness | my feelings are so strong, they're glimmering everywhere

 

under my wings | you will take to the skies | under my skin | i've got you deep inside | under my care | we break the pains we share | under my wings | you'll find a place to be everywhere

the more i think, the less i know | just dig around and can't let go | i don´t know what it is | i´m tumbling through a distant no man´s land | i spread my wings and learned to fly | ignored the years that have passed by | i don't know what i want | but i guess it's the never-never day | my feelings are so deep, they're shimmering everywhere

 

under my wings | you'll reach the stars above | under my spell | the cold turns into love | under my wings | you're safe and have a rest | under my flap | no storm will wreck your nest

LOST AND FOUND

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Backing Vocals: Katharina Hilberger

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


when i pulled away from the others | left the painful things that bothers | it didn't make much sense to pray for a cosy place to stay

 

someday | while my thoughts flow into each other | circle all the world and his brother | i want to find a place to stay | like a tired castaway

 

someday | once i was told by my mother | once i was told by my father | that it's better to go straight | just to get a twist of fate someday | someday

i can talk about my loss | i hope this feeling comes across | all my words are full of tears | they have wept for many years | i can talk about my love | i've really had more than enough | and my heart is full of fear | what i've found could disappear

 

somewhere there must be a place | where i find my peaceful base | someone's loves will give me space to last | somewhere there must be a place | where I find my peaceful base | someone's loves will give me space to last

DEEPEST GROUND

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


you can survive the day and wipe away tears of rage | you gotta keep the faith | and if you walk about | see the darkest cloud of all | you'll get through the maze | i go along the road | to rock the boat is not | what i'm looking for | now i can feel the beat below my feet | i'm sure that i want more and more

deepest ground | just feel the love deep down | i'll be there | when you need me i swear | deepest ground | always and all-around | you'll be there | when you need one who cares

 

if you could find the way you would not stay away | from (the) open flame | you will not lose the ground | though loneliness is what you've found | you win all the same | but if you really lose the key | and if you need a bed for free | please, call on me | come on

THE CALL

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen
Backing Vocals: Katharina Hilberger

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


the line went dead | something is wrong this afternoon | i put the need for talk aside and stay | what i want to tell is not exactly wonderful | but i have some heartfelt things to say | i'm going mad from the steady dial tone | i get on the phone

 

i slump down just like a wrecked balloon | am i unwelcome or just too late ? | and the evening spells the afternoon | but i call again and wait

 

the line is busy | i type my fingers down to bone | my message is not slight | i put it off | i'm sitting in the waiting room of hell on earth | ninety-nine attemps | i've had enough

i used to call to hear the magic word | i used the call as a rescue net | to have a talk with you and to be heard | is the most pleasure i can get

 

you used to call to form another view | on the things that make you blue | oh, each ringing is a lovely sound | we reach dry land at a bound

 

i used to call to get the peace of mind | let's turn over a new leaf | such a harmony is hard to find | we hold the line and share the grief

EASY TO DO

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen
Backing Vocals: Katharina Hilberger

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


no, i'm not at the end of my rope | presently there is a heap of new hope | and whenever my system is off | i drive it with the power of love | anyway when i follow this trail | i can break out of my musical jail | and whenever the going gets rough | i come through with the power of love

 

now every day, every play of my life | every moment it may come so true | now i will work for the music | this is easy to do ...

now every day, every play of my life | every moment it may come so true | now i will work for the music | this is easy to do ... | this is easy to do

 

every day when i walk on this road | singing one of thousands songs that i wrote | i realize that this could be hot stuff | composed it with the power of love | everytime when i cook up a tale | one is fast, one is as slow as a snail | and whenever the going is tough | i make it with the power of love

HERE I AM

Songwriter: Detlev Schmidtchen

Vocals: dETsmi | Detlev Schmidtchen
Backing Vocals: Katharina Hilberger

Lyrics: Claudia Roggendorf


i've the world at my feet | i can breathe again | the work is complete buy it there and then ! | i sit on a cloud | that's most sung about | and the life i lead | is out to succeed | you get hi-hi-higher | from speed of the beat | do you feel the fire | of that blazing heat ? | trash your favorite toy | you will scream for joy | and tell all of them: what a brilliant man !

 

here i am | do what i can | here i am | do what i can | here i am | do what i can | here i am | here i am

 

so i will regain | my ambitious aim | drop out of backseat | to supply the need | all the girls out there | shout fom everywhere | at the very least | they will jam the streets | i can tell you plain

you will go insane | it's the beat of love | that is coming off | i can make you feel so good and unreal | i can know know know | i can, know you by the way you hop

 

here i am | do what i can | here i am | do what i can | here i am | do what i can | here i am | here i am

 

at the mountains peak | on the ocean bed | i will take your sleep | baby, look ahead ! | this is big enough | it's no bloodless stuff | it's beyond debate | this is simply great | watch out:

 

here i am | do what i can | here i am | do what i can | here i am | do what i can | here i am | here i am
