Wolfsheim: Once In A Lifetime (1998)

Once In A Lifetime

It's getting dark... too soon... a threatening silence...
Surrounding me... a wind comes up from the islands...
When distance fades to stormy grey
Washed out from the deep of the ocean
Here I will stand to face your wrath...
While all the others are praying

Calm down my heart... don't beat so fast...
Don't be afraid just once in a lifetime
Calm down my heart... don't beat so fast...
Don't be afraid just once in a lifetime

No rain can wash away my tears
No wind can soothe my pain
You made me doubt, you made me fear
But now I'm not the same
You took my wife, my unborn son...
Torn into the deep of the ocean
I don't pretend that I love you
'cause there is nothing left to lose

And when silence comes back to me
I find myself feeling lonely
Standing here on the shores of destiny
I find myself feeling lonely
I had a life to give... many dreams to live...
Don't you know that you're losing so much this time?
Beyond the waves... I will be free
While all the others are praying

Calm down my heart... don't beat so fast...
Don't be afraid just once in a lifetime
Calm down my heart... don't beat so fast...
Don't be afraid just once in a lifetime

No rain can wash away my tears
No wind can soothe my pain
You made me doubt, you made me fear
But now I'm not the same
You took my wife, my unborn son...
Torn into the deep of the ocean
I don't pretend that I love you
'cause there is nothing left to lose

The love in you, it does not burn
There is no lesson you can learn
And there are sounds you cannot hear
And there are feelings you can't feel

Calm down my heart... don't beat so fast...
Don't be afraid just once in a lifetime

I don't pretend that I love you
And this time I'm not scared of you


Heroin, She Said

Walking down the streets at night
I see her stumbling through the rain
A skinny figure in the dark
Her face a shade of grey

Begging here and barking there
She's swearing all the time
Her fingers fumbling with her hair
A dirty mess of grime

And she starts to cry and she's asking why
Her life's always the same
But she does not see that unfortunately
There's no one her to blame

"Heroin" she said, "was the best I had...
No more mountains left to climb
The world so slow... all my dreams just to high
To be fulfilled in time!.."

And she grabs my arm... and I feel alarmed
Her fingers gripping tight
I see her pleading eyes...
So I start to disguise
And say that everything's alright...

And the reason why I pretended and lied
Is that I don't want to kill
The poor dream that's left in the deepest cleft
Of the thing that she calls will!..

"Heroin" she said, "was the best I had...
No more mountains left to climb
The world so slow... all my dreams just to high
To be fulfilled in time!.."

"Heroin" she said, "was the best I had...
No more mountains left to climb
The world so slow... all my dreams just to high
To be fulfilled in time!.."


Love Is Strange
(текст - Smith/Baker)

Love, love is strange
Lot of people take it for a game

Once you get it
You're in an awful fix
After you've had it
You never want to quit
Love is strange

Many people
They don't understand ... no, no
They think loving
Is money in the hand
Love is strange

Love, love is strange
A lot of people take it for a game
Love is strange

Your sweet loving
Is better than a kiss
When you leave me
Sweet kisses I'll miss

Love, love is strange
A lot of people take it for a game
Love is strange

Once you get it
You're in an awful fix
After you've had it
You never want to quit
Love is strange

Love, love is strange
