BELIEVE IN LOVE
(music: Becker / Belz - lyrics: Döring)

As I pack my bags to leave for good
the sun is coming up
and I burn my bridges, turn my back
and I pray for a better luck
still I wonder why I fell for you
such a beauty, yet so cold
playing little lonely girl
always doing what she's told

And I bet you will be over me
by the time the day is gone
I pray for better love
after all you´ve said & done

Believe in love -
it all comes down to a simple act of faith
believe in love
there's gonna be a light at the end

If it's easy come, it's easy go 
but this one hits me hard
and I'm stumbling as I try to catch my star
if you jumb the gun when you're set to run
you can never break the chain
I´ve been waiting too long
but I'm running up again

Believe in love -
it all comes down to a simple word of truth
believe in love

I'm gonna catch my star
there's gonna be a light at the end

Believe in love ...

HERE I GO AGAIN
(music: Becker - lyrics: Döring)

I didn't mean to call your number
I didn't even know your name
but when we're sad & blue don't we all sometimes
look for a spark to light the flame

And everybody knows just how this story goes
it always seems the same but never really is

Here I go again
'cause you're calling and I'm falling 
back into love again
here I go again
now let me never feel the hurt & pain
of losing love again

You said you know when good loving comes your way
you looked me straight into the eyes
and then we chased the night into the day

And everybody knows just how this story goes
it always seems the same but never really is

Here I go again
'cause you're calling and I'm falling 
back into love again
here I go again
now let me never feel the hurt & pain
of losing love again

THAT CRAZY FEELING
(music: Becker - lyrics: Döring)

Give me reasons to leave you and I'll be on my way
I still need you too much that's all that I can say
you´ve been lying in someone's arms, but Baby, I don't care
now you tell me to leave you, but you know I ain't going nowhere

I still have a soft spot in my heart just for you
give me all the tea in China, I won't go

I want to take you home tonight
'cause I don't want to lose that crazy feeling
we'll play some music, get it right
and we'll be going on & on forever

You´ve been hurting me so much, but I take half the blame
I was too jealous & foolish time and time again

I still have a soft spot in my heart just for you
give me all the tea in China, I won't go

I want to take you home tonight
'cause I don't want to lose that crazy feeling
we'll play some music, get it right
and we'll be going on & on forever

I CARE FOR YOU
(music: Becker - lyrics: Becker / Belz)

I care for you
can't you see it's true
I'll always do 
just look into my eyes

I care for you
won't you believe me
I'll always do
but words are always hard to find for me
can't you see: you're in my mind

I take care of you
and I will always do
(if you'd only listen)

I care for you
can't you see it's true
I'll always do
come look into my eyes
I care for you, Babe
but words are always hard to find for me
can't you see: you're in my soul

I take care for you, Baby
I take care of you
I care for you, Baby
and I will always do

WORDS OF LOVE
(music: Becker - lyrics: Döring / Becker)

Higher than a rocket takes me up
further than the road can lead me down
brighter than the sun can make the day

Warmer than a gentle ocean breeze
louder than a scream can hit my ears
sweeter than forbidden fruit can taste

Sweet words of love wings of a dove
and every line is coming straight from your heart
feel your body ache more than you can take
writing letters of love straight from your heart

When we're all gone
still there's gonna be
words of love that made us happy
words of you & me
sing me a song 
sweet as it can be
sing of love that makes you happy
sing for you & me

Stronger than a storm can shake the trees
deeper than the ocean down below
faster than the blood runs in my veins

Better than a fortune makes me rich
longer than my memory recalls
harder than a wall that's in my way

Sweet words of love wings of a dove
and every line is coming straight from your heart

When we're all gone ...

RAINBOW
(music: Becker - lyrics: Döring)

Sunday morning I just want to stay in bed
one of these days when all you want is to forget
quite a bad streak nothing seems to turn out right
who wants a winner, losers of the world unite
take a shower, wash off every trace of you
clear my memory, nothing I would rather do
against my window, a symphony of drumming rain
all you bright days, when will I see you again

There's a rainbow right outside in my backyard
sure there's a rainbow to light up every broken heart

No illusions, I know when it hits me hard
how can two seconds feel like twenty years apart
if I had wings, I bet I wouldn't take off right
who wants a winner, losers of the world unite
love is heavy, someone told me that before
always happy, I don't have that one in store
I'll keep your picture, save it for some later smile
win some, lose some, closing just another file

There's a rainbow right outside in my backyard
sure there's a rainbow to light up every broken heart

But I won't give up, with every blues my power grows
it takes some skill, it takes some thorns to make a rose
after the fire, the ground is clear for something new
look for a wise man when you need a fool

There's a rainbow right outside in my backyard
sure there's a rainbow to light up every broken heart

READY NOW
(music: Becker - lyrics: Döring) 

When you touch me it's the touch of a magic wand
one more time now and you got me right where you want
with your eyes closed you can pierce me right down to my soul

I'm only drifting now you took the driver's seat
you turn me inside out and knock me off my feet

I am ready now - oh, I'm ready now
going steady now - have a hold on me
I'm ready now - cast your spell on me
going steady now

Is this love now, I don't look different but I have changed
strange commotion so intense that I just can't explain
don't let go now use your magic I'm halfway there

I'm only drifting now you took the driver's seat
you turn me inside out and knock me off my feet

I feel ready now ...

I´ve been waiting for this moment to come
I surrender cause I feel - 
I feel ready

I'm ready now ...

RESTLESS HEART
(music: Becker - lyrics: Döring / Becker)

May I ask you where you're going
I watched you from the other side
passing by

When you're smiling, long hair flowing
I just want to talk to you
don't you be too shy

What a nice treat here on main street
let me take you for a walk
into the night

I know you need hard loving, Babe
don't you hesitate
Baby, please don't walk on by
to some other date

Maybe this time I'm gonna change my way
'cause it's different now, don't know how
I got a feeling that it works out fine
when you're mine

But don't forget I got a restless heart
I tell you before
tell you from the start
life is a movie and I play my part
I got a restless heart
but I'm alright for you

That's the story
now you know me
let me ask you once again
into the night

I am with you, you're still smiling
we´ve been talking for so long
let's have a good time

But don't forget ...

Maybe this time I'm gonna change my way
'cause it's different now, don't know how
I always throught I was a rolling stone
well, I was, till you came my way
maybe for you I'm gonna change today
and I stay for a while
I´ve got a feeling that it works out fine
when you're mine

But don't forget ...

SARAH
(music: Becker - lyrics: Döring / Becker / Belz)

There's a face I see always when I'm dreaming
and she seems so real smiling at me
there's a place in time wrapped up in her magic
said good-bye - no regrets still I can't forget

Sahra still feel like you are breathing so close to me
Sarah we were going so far giving easily

We were heart & soul every single moment
we could not let go coming for more
it was just a wave, we were high on love
we touched down - she left 
still I can't forget

Sarah tell me who you are breathing so close to me
Sarah we were going so far giving easily

Still feel the touch of you
and I wonder where you are

Sarah don't know where you are
and if you remember me
Sarah we're going so far 
giving easily

STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART
(music: Becker - lyrics: Döring / Becker / Belz)

Let it roll down when life treats you bad
it comes from the inside
straight from the heart

Like a child turn from happy to sad
emotional landslide
straight from the heart

It doesn't matter where you are
it makes no difference who's with you
get it right; hear me through
take it straight from the heart

Straight from the heart
you can take it, the best consolation is coming
straight from the heart
all you have to do is follow me

Take you up when the arrow is down
the best consolation 
coming straight from the heart

Be a sage with the eyes of a clown
the best medication
coming straight from the heart

It doesn't matter who you are
it makes no difference where you´ve been
the only way you can win
take it straight

Straight from the heart
you can take it, the best consolation is coming
Straight from the heart
all you have to do is follow me

STRANGE GAME
(music: Becker - lyrics: Döring)

Can you hear me trough, the crossfire of your emotions
you don't come near me, scared of my love & devotion

Can you teach me, 'cause it seams we're not part of the same game
you never reach me, but I won't give up just the same

Just the faintest smile would make my day
give me hope to carry on
when I'm close to you, you seem miles away
make me feel I don't belong

It's a strange game
always up against the wall
it's a strange game
when the loser takes it all

Can you feel me, the touch of my hand warm & tender
you will see me breaking your walls to surrender

If I only knew how to read & write
in the language of your heart
every move I make seems both wrong & right
and we're still a world apart

It's a strange game
always up against the wall
it's a strange game
when the loser takes it all

We're wasting time
but by now I know your rules

TILL YOU COME BACK
(music: Becker - lyrics: Becker / Belz)

Lonely nights - somehow this love went wrong
here inside it's getting cold
day by day the question is burning in my head
won't you stay
and find the way back home

It used to feel so right with you around me
I must fight to make you see
but your side - that's just where I want to be
take your time

I will always wait 
long ago I´ve lost my pride
and my arms are open wide
I won't give it up
till you come back home
till you come back

Sleepless nights reading all your letters
till the morning light
hear your voice some distant laughing
and I have no choice
but waiting for you

felt so right with you around me
and I must fight to make you see

I will always wait 
long ago I´ve lost my pride
and my arms are open wide
I won't give it up
till you come back home
till you come back

Should have known there's no chance anymore
since you walked out that door
now I know there's no chance anymore
'cause you've locked up that door

I will always wait
long ago I ´ve lost my pride
and my arms are open wide
I won't give it up
Till you come back home
Till you come back

VANITY
(Musik: Becker, Text: Döring)

Vanity, vanity aah
Canít you see, vanity aah
Weíre just dancing, round and round we go
In a perfect style, a perfect show
Now you see me, baby, now you donít
Foolish games we play
Thereís a beast weíve bottled up inside
And a danger zone we try to hide
Held to ransom Ė weíre so civilized
Give me more, give everything I need
All of my life I felt so incomplete
(With) everything I have that I donít need

Vanity, vanity aah
Canít you see, vanity aah
Speaking clearly we never hear a word
Donít you listen, you might get hurt
Only pretending, always keeping up
Foolish games we play
And I wonder if Iím still alive
Out of danger, future so bright
Held to ransom Ė weíre so civilized
Give me more, give everything I need
All of my life I felt so incomplete . . .

BLUE CRYSTAL EYES
(Musik: Becker, Text: Döring / Becker)

Blue Crystals in your eyes
Sparkle away whenever you smile
With you babe Iím alive
You light up my day, now help me through the night
Give you all of my heart
Give me all of your heart
Give you all of my heart . . .

Blue crystals set the night alight
Take me away on one of your smiles
With you babe Iím alive
You light up my day, now help me through the night
. . .
