THE ZOO

Musik: Rudolf Schenker
Text: Klaus Meine

The job is done and I go out
Another boring day
I leave it all behind me now
So many worlds away

I meet my girl, she´s dressed to kill
And all we gonna do
Is walk around to catch the thrill
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

Enjoy the zoo
And walk down 42nd Street
You wanna be excited too
And you will feel the heat

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

ALWAYS SOMEWHERE

Musik: Rudolf Schenker
Text: Klaus Meine

Arrive at seven the place feels good
No time to call you today
Encores till eleven then Chinese food
Back to the hotel again

I call your number the line ain´t free
I like to tell you come to me
A night without you seems like a lost dream
Love I can´t tell you how I feel

Always somewhere
Miss you where I´ve been
I´ll be back to love you again

Another morning another place
The only day off is far away
But every city has seen me in the end
And brings me to you again

Always somewhere
Miss you where I´ve been
I´ll be back to love you again

LIFE IS TOO SHORT

Musik: Rudolf Schenker
Text: Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker

Have you ever seen the morning
When the sun comes up the shore
And the silence makes
A beautiful sound
Have you ever sat there waiting
For the time to stand still
For all the world to stop
From turning around

And you run
´Cause life is too short
And you run
´Cause life is too short

Have you ever seen the glowing
When the moon is on the rise
And the dreams are close
To the ones that we love
Have you ever sat there waiting
For heaven to give a sign
So we could find the place
Where angels come from

And you run
´Cause life is too short
And you run
´Cause life is too short
And you run
´Cause life is too short
And you run
´Cause life is too short

There´s a time that turns
I´d turn back time
But I don´t say I can
It only works if you believe in the truth
Well there´s a time to live
And a time to cry
But if you´re by my side
I will try to catch a star
I´ll try to catch a star
Just for you

And I run
´Cause life is too short
And I run
´Cause life is too short
And I run
´Cause life is too short
And I run
´Cause life is too short

Too short
Too short
Life is too short

Too short
Too short
Life is too short

HOLIDAY

Musik: Rudolf Schenker
Text: Klaus Meine

Let me take you far away
You´d like a holiday
Let me take you far away
You´d like a holiday

Exchange the cold days for the sun
A good time and fun
Let me take you far away
You´d like a holiday

Let me take you far away
You´d like a holiday
Let me take you far away
You´d like a holiday

Exchange your troubles for some love
Wherever you are
Let me take you far away
You´d like a holiday

Longing for the sun you will come
To the island without name
Longing for the sun be welcome
On the island many miles away from home
Be welcome on the island without name
Longing for the sun you will come
To the island many miles away from home

YOU AND I

Musik: Klaus Meine
Text: Klaus Meine

I lose control because of you babe
I lose control when you look at me like this
There´s something in your eyes that is saying tonight
I´m not a child anymore, life has opened the door
To a new exciting life

I lose control when I´m close to you babe
I lose control don´t look at me like this
There´s something in your eyes, is this love at first sight
Like a flower that grows, life just wants you to know
All the secrets of life

It´s all written down in your lifelines
It´s written down inside your heart

You and I just have a dream
To find our love a place, where we can hide away
You and I were just made
To love each other now, forever and a day

I lose control because of you babe
I lose control don´t look at me like this
There´s something in your eyes that is saying tonight
I´m so curious for more just like never before
In my innocent life

It´s all written down in your lifelines
It´s written down inside your heart

You and I just have a dream
To find our love a place, where we can hide away
You and I were just made
To love each other now, forever and a day

Time stands still when the days of innocence
Are falling for the night
I love you girl I always will
I swear I´m there for you
Till the day I die

You and I just have a dream
To find our love a place, where we can hide away
You and I were just made
To love each other now, forever and a day

WHEN LOVE KILLS LOVE

Musik: Rudolf Schenker
Text: Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker

When love kills love

Suddenly I think I always knew
I had my share of mistakes
Made quite a few
Finally I know and that´s for sure
I don´t look back in anger anymore

Suddenly the sun comes up again
There´s a new beginning
When we pass the end
Finally I know and that´s for sure
I don´t look back in anger anymore

When love kills love
Will someone rescue me
When love kills love
It´s cutting through so deep

Suddenly I wake up from the dream
Someone tells me
I´ve been talking in the sleep
Finally I know and that´s for sure
I don´t believe in daydreams anymore

When love kills love
Will someone rescue me
When love kills love
It´s cutting through so deep
Well life goes ´round
And upside down
It´s pretty mad

When love kills love
Will someone set me free
When love kills love
It´s cutting through so deep
How can we choose
When all we lose
Is all we have

We run away
From all the pain
We run away
From all the pain

When love kills love
Will someone rescue me
When love kills love
It´s cutting through so deep

When love kills love
When love kills love
When love kills love
When love kills love

DUST IN THE WIND

Musik: Kerry Livgren
Text: Kerry Livgren

I close my eyes
Only for a moment and the moment´s gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes, a curiosity

Dust in the wind
All they are is dust in the wind

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

Now, Don´t hang on
Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won´t another minute buy

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

SEND ME AN ANGEL

Musik: Rudolf Schenker
Text: Klaus Meine

The wise man said just walk this way
To the dawn of the light
The wind will blow into your face
As the years pass you by
Hear this voice from deep inside
It´s the call of your heart
Close your eyes and your will find
The passage out of the dark

Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star

The wise man said just find your place
In the eye of the storm
Seek the roses along the way
Just beware of the thorns

Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star

The wise man said just raise your hand
And reach out for the spell
Find the door to the promised land
Just believe in yourself
Hear this voice from deep inside
It´s the call of your heart
Close your eyes and your will find
The way out of the dark

Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star
Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star

CATCH YOUR TRAIN

Musik: Rudolf Schenker
Text: Klaus Meine

Wake up man it´s late but not too late,
It´s six o´clock like everyday!

Get your things run and forget the rain,
Take powerpills don´t miss your train!

And you´d like to be another
A different guy and a better lover
For your love, for your life check your way.
And you like the Rock´n´Roller
A different life and Whisky Cola
But don´t be low keep your own style
And catch your train!

Don´t be lazy man and work off your ass,
He´s the boss you´ve gotta do what he says!

Catch your train, run and forget those ways,
Keep it cool it´s not too late!

And you´d like to be another
A different guy and a better lover
For your love, for your life check your way.
And you like the Rock´n´Roller
A different life and Whisky Cola
But don´t be low keep your own style
And catch your train!

I WANTED TO CRY ( BUT THE TEARS WOULDN`T COME)

Musik: Klaus Meine
Text: Klaus Meine

Well here comes my baby
She´s dressed oh so cute
She looks a little crazy
In her Hollywood shoes
Well baby loves driving
In my hot brand new car
She thinks less than flying
Is not fast enough

But when you turn upside down
Life ain´t too much fun
I wanted to cry
But the tears wouldn´t come

Here comes my baby
She´s the one I adore
Well she´s a lucky lady
Born in a Gucci store
With gold cards in motion
And the platinum too
She jets across the ocean
A little faster than you

But when it rains in St. Barth
Life ain´t too much fun
I wanted to cry
But the tears wouldn´t come
I wanted to cry
But the tears wouldn´t come

Every night without you
I miss to have you by my side
Ohh, so I keep waiting, I keep waiting
I swear I never let you go again

Well here comes my baby
With a Brad Pitt lookalike
Right through immigration
And straight out of my life

Well it seems the friendly skies
Are pretty good fun
I wanted to cry
But the tears wouldn´t come

I wanted to cry
I wanted to cry
I wanted to cry
But the tears wouldn´t come

WIND OF CHANGE

Musik: Klaus Meine
Text: Klaus Meine

I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change
An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change

The world is closing in
Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers
The future´s in the air
I can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change

Walking down the street
Distant memories
Are buried in the past forever
I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change

The wind of change
Blows straight into the face of time
Like a stormwind that will ring the freedom bell
For peace of mind
Let your balalaika sing
What my guitar wants to say

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change

LOVE OF MY LIFE

Musik: Freddie Mercury
Text: Freddie Mercury

Love of my life
You´ve hurt me
You´ve broken my heart
And now you leave me
Love of my life
Can´t you see
Bring it back, bring it back
Don´t take it away from me
Because you don´t know
What it means to me

Love of my life
Don´t leave me
You´ve taken my heart
You now desert me
Love of my life
Can´t you see
Bring it back, bring it back
Don´t take it away from me
Because you don´t know
What it means to me

You won´t remember
When this is blown over
And everything´s all by the way
When I get older
I will be there
At your side to remind you
How I still love you, I still love you

Back, bring it back
Don´t take it away from me
Because you don´t know
What it means to me
Love of my life
Love of my life

DRIVE

Musik: Ric Ocasek
Text: Ric Ocasek

Who´s gonna tell you when, it´s too late
Who´s gonna tell you things, aren´t so great

You can´t go on, thinking nothing´s wrong
Who´s gonna drive you home tonight

Who´s gonna pick you up, when you fall
Who´s gonna hang it up, when you call
Who´s gonna pay attention, to your dreams
Who´s gonna plug your ears, when you scream

You can´t go on, thinking nothing´s wrong
Who´s gonna drive you home tonight

Who´s gonna hold you down, when you escape
Who´s gonna come around, when you break

You can´t go on, thinking nothing´s wrong
Who´s gonna drive you home tonight
You can´t go on, thinking nothing´s wrong
Who´s gonna drive you home tonight

Who´s gonna drive you home tonight

STILL LOVING YOU

Musik: Rudolf Schenker
Text: Klaus Meine

Time, it needs time
To win back your love again
I will be there, I will be there
Love, only love
Can bring back your love someday
I will be there, I will be there

I´ll fight, babe, I´ll fight
To win back your love again
I will be there, I will be there
Love, only love
Can break down the wall someday
I will be there, I will be there

If we´d go again
All the way from the start
I would try to change
The things that killed our love
Your pride has built a wall, so strong
That I can´t get through
Is there really no chance
To start once again
I´m loving you

Try, baby try
To trust in my love again
I will be there, I will be there
Love, our love
Just shouldn´t be thrown away
I will be there, I will be there

If we´d go again
All the way from the start
I would try to change
The things that killed our love
Your pride has built a wall, so strong
That I can´t get through
Is there really no chance
To start once again

If we´d go again
All the way from the start
I would try to change
The things that killed our love
Yes, I´ve hurt your pride, and I know
What you´ve been through
You should give me a chance
This can´t be the end
I´m still loving you
I´m still loving you, I need your love
I´m still loving you

HURRICANE 2001

Musik: Rudolf Schenker
Text: Klaus Meine, Herman Rarebell

It´s early morning
The sun comes out
Last night was shaking
And pretty loud
My cat is purring
And scratches my skin
So what is wrong
With another sin
The bitch is hungry
She needs to tell
So give her inches
And feed her well
More days to come
New places to go
I´ve got to leave
It´s time for a show

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane

My body is burning
It starts to shout
Desire is coming
It breaks out loud
Lust is in cages
Till storm breaks loose
Just have to make it
With someone I choose
The night is calling
I have to go
The wolf is hungry
He runs the show
He´s licking his lips
He´s ready to win
On the hunt tonight
For love at first sting

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
