Peter Heppner: Solo (2008)

Easy

You walk along your way
One fine day
A way you'd never choose
Ahead of you
You don't know how
You don't know why
Your life's just passing by

It's the easy way
Promising to ease your pain
Promising you love
You don't know when
You don't know where
Temptation will be there

It's so easy
...easy to be dumb
...easy to play numb

It's so easy
...easy to be cruel
...easy to be you!

You're walking down the lane
That leads you astray
Considering what you
Now could do
I know the lies, I know the games
And games you will be playing

There are easy ways
To hurt someone
And easy ways
To leave someone behind
But think about what you might lose
No easy way to choose

It's so easy...

It's so easy to deny... to close your eyes
Attempting to deceive... and make believe
It's so easy to pretend... no consequences...

It's so easy to be... You


Alleinesein

Heute spiel' ich nur die Spiele,
Die ich selber mag...
Heute wird nur das passieren,
Was ich sag'...
Heute gibt's mal ausnahmsweise
Keinen Kompromiß,
Denn heute gibt's nur einen -
Und zwar mich.

Alleinesein... Alleinesein...
Heute bin ich einfach mein
In vertrauter Einsamkeit.

Alleinesein... Alleinesein...
Heute bin ich mir genug
Und das tut auch mal ganz gut
Alleinesein...

Heute ist mir ganz egal,
Was du wohl davon hältst,
Denn heute mach' ich Urlaub
Mit mir selbst.


Suddenly

I don't give a fuck
What you say
I don't want to hear no lies
From you today
You wonder why you stand
All alone
But maybe you just reap
What you've sown

And suddenly...
You find you're in so deep
The more you try in vain
To free yourself again
The deeper you will fall
And you will fall... won't you?

A thousand times I've lent
A helping hand
I'm not asking for a thanks
Don't misunderstand
But you're hiding from the truth
If you think that you don't need a friend... aren't you?
A long descending road, I've been told
Lies out there in the cold
For those alone

And suddenly...
You find you're in so deep
The more you try in vain
To free yourself again
The deeper you will fall
And you will fall... won't you?

All the things that you have done... one by one...
Are just coming back to you... so they do...

And suddenly...
You find you're in so deep
The more you try in vain
To free yourself again
The deeper you will fall
And you will fall... won't you?


Vorbei

Viel zu lang hast du gesucht
Doch keinen Weg gefunden
Du hast alles schon versucht
Dich bis zum Schluß gewunden

Bis du begreifst...

Es ist vorbei
Alles bricht entzwei
Jede Hoffnung, jede Träumerei
Es ist vorbei

Dir wird nur noch mit Spott gedankt
Und jedes Wort verbogen...
Wenn Lügen alles sind was bleibt
Wird dies kein Tag wie and're sein

Denn du begreifst...

Es ist vorbei
Alles bricht entzwei
Jede Hoffnung, jede Träumerei
Es ist vorbei

Im Stillen hoffst du noch darauf
's ist nur ein Traum
Dann wachst du auf
Und endlich siehst du ein...

Es ist vorbei
Alles bricht entzwei
Jede Hoffnung, jede Träumerei
Es ist vorbei


Being Me

I can't say if it's real
That you're laying here with me
It feels so good... this can't be you
No... this is something new
A hoax, a silly joke or just a lie

I don't know if this is true
Or just another dream of you
I can't forget
I know that this sounds mad
But not as mad as anything you say

Being me... is everything I've got
Being me... is everything that stays
When everybody else will fail...

And if it's real, what did it take
Just to get here to this place?
I gave so much... I cannot say
And now I ask myself
What it might be this time... just to stay

And if it's true, what is it worth?
All these years and all the hurting... all the pain...
Is it worth the hate...
I couldn't help to grow inside myself?

Being me... is everything I've got
Being me... is everything that stays
When everybody else will fail...

Being me... being myself...
Indeed I've learned my lesson well...
Being me... being myself...
At least not anybody else...


I Hate You

I'm feeling great... I'm feeling fine
Oh, how wonderfully good it can be to know
Revenge is mine

You may think... I will forget
And that time will wash away all the things
You should regret

But I will find a way
Do not think I can't wait

I hate you... from the bottom of my heart
I hate you... I'll kick and I'll break you
And I won't tear myself apart
I hate you... from the bottom of my heart

You can't make... your words unsaid
No matter how much you ever try to make...
Me forget

It's not a dream... this is real
The world is not your own fairy-tale and so...
You will see

Revenge is enjoyed the most
If it's eaten cold...

I hate you... from the bottom of my heart
I hate you... I'll kick and I'll break you
And I won't tear myself apart
I hate you... from the bottom of my heart


No Matter What It Takes

I wish that I could prove
What I feel for you
Something that you can't deny
Anything you can rely upon
Each time you're in the mood for any doubts
But there's no evidence for what I hold inside... my heart

You need to understand this
No matter what it takes

Nothing suddenly appears
Neither love, nor your fears
You grow them inside you
Something for idle hands to do
And you want to be sure before you can admit
But I never make a promise that I can... not keep...

I won't be afraid
I'll stand with you
And I will understand you

I'll bend but won't break
There'll be no fear
And I will understand you

No matter what it takes
No matter what you say
And even if it breaks... my heart


Walter (London or Manchester)

Hey you, come down and play...
Oh, I don't know... what can I say...
You know... there lies a day ahead
We will enjoy and laugh like mad

Wait just a second here
I'll be back soon... most sincere
And then I'll show you how it's done
I know a thousand ways to have some fun

And then a laugh appeared
And made our day
Gone were all our fears
Of being afraid

Hey friend, I know you well
So be careful 'bout what you say
I could take it seriously
And then one day we would have to leave

But let's go, we'll find our place
We will not pass without a trace
And I know we'll make it there
In London or in Manchester

And then a song appeared
And we dreamed on
Gone were all our fears
Of being no one

Hey man, it's dark in here
And I can't find you anywhere
I don't know if I can bear
To know that you're not still somewhere


Wherever

Everything seems strange... fascinating new
So much different from what you're used to
Such exciting flavours... amazing views
Unlike anything that you once knew
Not settled in but you hope you'll do
But don't forget I'm still here with you

Wherever you may go
Whatever you may say
Whatever you may do
I'll stay with you...

Just going somewhere else won't change a thing
As long as you can't change something inside you
And everything you say will just be words
Until you are not able to make them true
In every mirror you see my face and...
You know you can't get rid of yourself

Wherever you may go
Whatever you may say
Whatever you may do
I'll stay with you...


Das geht vorbei...

Das geht vorbei
Die Wunden heilt die Zeit
Trotz verletzter Eitelkeit
Und wenn auch eine Narbe bleibt
Das geht vorbei

Das geht vorbei
Nimm dir doch ein bißchen Zeit
Auch wenn der Schmerz unendlich scheint
Du kannst viel mehr ertragen als du meinst
Das geht vorbei

Das geht vorbei...

Das geht vorbei
Alles hat so seine Zeit
Ob im Großen oder klein
So scheint's auf dieser Welt zu sein
Das geht vorbei

Das geht vorbei
Denn nichts ist für die Ewigkeit
Was heute richtig und perfekt
Ist morgen vielleicht einfach weg
Das geht vorbei

Das geht vorbei...

Und wie der Mensch sich auch verrenkt... Was er sich denkt
In welche Bahnen er sein Leben lenkt... und wem er's schenkt
Was er nicht tun aus Angst vor dem Vergessensein...
Nur für ein kleines bißchen Unvergänglichkeit

Das geht vorbei...
