All of a Sudden (P. Berg)

 

silence robbed a busy day,

every routine collapsed

a phone call hit you like a stroke

you stood alone and gasped

 

although you do your best

to live on with the extant rest

sometimes you fail to deny

what you see in your mind's eye

 

and everything keeps its breath

while the air hurts your flesh

your ears fade out the tones

while sorrow creeps into your bones

 

All of a sudden nothing's like it was before

all of a sudden fate is knocking at your door

all of a sudden life turned your whole world upside down

life turned your whole world upside down

 

the year suddenly lost sight of you

to live on was the hardest task

and still the memories keep haunting you

and they can do their job real fast

 

all of a sudden overwhelmed by powers that be

all of a sudden the only question is „why me?“

all of a sudden life turned your whole world upside down

 

 

Golden Times (P. Berg)

 

Draw the curtains, put out the lights, let's cultivate our truth

 

 

but underneath our shells, so much is left to do

 

where is our vigor, our drive, it isn‘t that long

 

since we were certain of golden times.

 

 

 

 

life was putting spokes in our wheels

 

 

we struggled to creep on

 

 

only nurtured our fears

 

 

avoided fate at that time

 

 

 

millions don't know what they seek

 

under a sky full of stars

 

even if they are out of reach

 

they keep shining through the dark

 

 

 

the lame excuses are fading, you frightened them off

 

clear words are spoken against all odds

 

keep your head up, follow your way, welcome back on track

 

and each of us is confident to be heading towards

 

golden times

 

 

 

 

life will put spokes in your wheels

 

 

keep marching on

 

 

Never turn on your heels

 

 

let's face fate right on

 

 

Black Forest Home (P. Berg)

 

 

The city lights hurt in my eyes the noise tortures my ears.

 

If I'd only knew a face or two, so many men but noone's near.

 

As I hit the streets I feel like I am lost on track.

 

A trick of the brain reminds me of what I lack

 

 

 

It sends me back to the places where I'm from:

 

 

To a valley green, a river's blazing sheen.

 

 

Where the nights are dark I'm lighted within my heart.

 

 

I'm back on the track to my black forest home


 

I lived in places where everyone wants to be.

 

I've seen faces that everyone wants to see.

 

Woke up in Paris, walked through London's afternoons,

 

Passed the nights in Rome, admired the Berlin dawn.

 

It sends me back to the places where I'm from:

 

To a valley green, to a river's blazing sheen.

 

Where the nights are dark I'm lighted within my heart.

 

I'm back on the track to my black forest home.

Emoji Song (T.Hölscher, P. Berg)

 

They seem to set your mind at ease

 

stop treating me with your emojis

 

 

I never feel that much when we are talking,

 

 

I always feel a kind relief to see you walking away

 

 

to me it is enough to meet you once in a while,

 

 

but please don't tell me anything by using your mobile

 

 

 

cause every minute every hour

 

I keep wiping them away

 

facing countless little pictures

 

just keep quiet if you have nothing to say

 

 

 

 

I'm sick and tired of this way of talking,

 

 

sick and tired of how things get weird,

 

 

all in all a special kind of stalking

 

 

stop treating me with your emojis

 

 

 

 

They seem to set your mind at ease

 

stop treating me with your emojis

Wayfaring Stranger (Traditional)

 

I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger,

 

 

travelin' through this world below.

 

 

Yet there's no sickness, no toil, or danger,

 

 

in that bright world to which I go.

 

 

 

 

 

I'm going there to see my Father

 

 

I'm going there no more to roam.

 

 

I'm only goin' over Jordan,

 

 

I'm only goin' over home.

 

 

 

 

 

I know dark clouds will gather round me,

 

 

I know my way is rough and steep.

 

 

But beauteous fields arise just before me,

 

 

where God's redeemed their vigils keep.

 

 

 

 

 

I'm going there to see my Mother,

 

 

she said she'd meet me when I come.

 

 

I'm only goin' over Jordan,

 

I'm only goin' over home.

 

 

 

 

After the Rain (P. Berg)

 

The rain was pouring hard when you dropped by

 

My face was wet and so was yours when you caught my eye

 

 

 

cloudy brains, delusion‘s thin

 

think umbrella, think syringe

 

 

 

 

a hard sun‘s light still hits my face, the pain is on

 

the chair is empty as the streets down below

 

 

 

cloudy brains, delusion‘s thin

 

think umbrella, think syringe

 

 

 

we had our time, we felt so shure

 

counting my days I prayed for more

 

 

 

your rainy face became the grace of my latest days

 

my face is wet and so is yours as we embrace

 

 

though time flew by it was ours

 

sweet shelter of my darkest hours

 

 

its so amazing what we became

 

I‘ll never miss the days before the rain

 

 

 

cloudy brains, delusion‘s thin

 

your umbrella, my syringe
