A1.Eagle (Engels)

They came flyin' from far away
Now I'm under their spell
I love hearing the stories that they tell
They've seen places beyond my land
And they've found new horizons
They speak strangely but I understand

And I dream I'm an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings

Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

As all good friends we talk all night
And we fly wing to wing
I have questions and they know everything
There's no limit to what I feel
We climb higher and higher
Am I dreamin' or is it real

Is it true, I'm an eagle
Is it true, I can spread my wings

Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

And I dream I'm an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings

Flyin' high, high, I'm a bird in the sky
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly
Over mountains and forests and seas
High, high, I'm a bird in the sky
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, What a feeling to fly
Over mountains ans forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

2.Take a chance on me (Engels)

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey, I'm still free, take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you got no place to go, when you're feeling down
If you're all alone, when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, If you let me try
Take a chance on me, take a chance on me

We can go dancing, we can go walking
As long as we're together
Listen to some music, maybe just talking
You'd get to know me better
'Cause you know I've got so much that I wanna do
When I dream I'm alone with you, it's magic
You want me to leave it there, afraid of a love affair
But I think you know, that I can't let go

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey, I'm still free, take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you got no place to go, when you're feeling down
If you're all alone, when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, If you let me try
Take a chance on me, take a chance on me

Oh, you can take your time, baby, I'm in no hurry
I know I'm gonna get you
You don't wanna hurt me, baby don't worry
I ain't gonna let you
Let me tell you now, my love is strong enough
To last when things are rough, it's magic
You say that I waste my time, But I can't get you off my mind
No I can't let go, 'cause I love you so

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey, I'm still free, take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you got no place to go, when you're feeling down
If you're all alone, when the pretty birds have flown
Honey, I'm still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me

Pa-pa-pa-pa-pow, pa-pa-pa-pa-pow
Honey, I'm still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me

Pa-pa-pa-pa-pow, pa-pa-pa-pa-pow-pow-pow
Honey, I'm still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me

3.One man, one woman (Engels)

No smiles, not a single word at the breakfast table
Though I would have liked to begin
So much that I wanna say, but I feel unable
You leave and you slam the door
Like you've done many times before
And I cry and I feel so helpless

One man, one woman
Two friends and two true lovers
Somehow we'll help each other through the hard times
One man, one woman
One life to live together
One chance to take that never comes back again
You and me 'till the end

Outside I can see the sun trough the open window
Inside everything feel so cold
What's wrong, what is happening, where did all our love go
Somethimes when I just can't cope
I cling to a desperate hope
And I cry and I feel like dying

One man, one woman
Two friends and two true lovers
Somehow we'll help each other through the hard times
One man, one woman
One life to live together
One chance to take that never comes back again
You and me 'till the end

Daydreams of a better life, but I have to wake up
The sound of a key in the door
You smile and I realize that we need a shake up
Our love is a precious theing
Worth the pain and the suffering
And it's never too late for changin'

One man, one woman
Two friends and two true lovers
Somehow we'll help each other through the hard times
One man, one woman
One life to live together
One chance to take that never comes back again
You and me 'till the end

You and me till' the end

4.The name of the game (Engels)

I've seen you twice in a short time, only a week since we started
It seems to me for every time, I'm getting more openhearted
I was an impossible case, no one ever could reach me
But I think I can see in your face, there's a lot you can teach me
So I wanna know

What's the name of the game, does it mean anything to you
What's the name of the game, can you feel it the way I do

Tell me please, 'cause I have to know
I'm a bashful child, beginning to grow
And you make me talk and you make me feel
And you make me show what I'm trying to conceal
If I trust in you, would you let me down
Would you laugh at me if I said I care for you
Could you feel the same way too

I wanna know, the name of the game

I have no friends, no one to see and I am never invited
Now I am here, talking to you, no wonder I get excited
Your smile and the sound of your voice and the way you see through me
Got a feeling you gimme no choice, but it means a lot to me
So I wanna know

What's the name of the game
( Your smile and the sound of your voice )
Does it mean anything to you
( Got a feeling you gimme no choice
But it means a lot )
What's the name of the game
( Your smile and the sound of your voice )
Can you feel it the way I do

Tell me please, 'cause I have to know
I'm a bashful child, beginning to grow
And you make me talk and you make me feel
And you make me show what I'm trying to conceal
If I trust in you, would you let me down
Would you laugh at me if I said I care for you
Could you feel the same way too

I wanna know, oh yes I wanna know

The name of the game
( I was an impossible case )
Does it mean anything to you
( But I think I can see in your face
And it means a lot )
What's the name of the game
( Your smile and the sound of your voice )
Can you feel it the way I do
( Got a feeling you give me no choice
But it means a lot )
What's the name of the game
( I was an impossible case )
Does it mean anything to you
( But I think I can see in your face
And it means a lot )
What's the name of the game
( Your smile and the sound of your voice )
Can you feel it the way I do

B1.Move on (Engels)

They say a restless body
Can hide a peacefull soul
A voyager and a settler
They both have a distant goal
If I explore the heavens
Or if I search inside
Well, it really doesn't matter
As long as I can tell myself
I've always tried

Like a roller in the ocean
Life a motion, move on
Like a wind that's always blowin'
Life is flowing, move on
Like the sunrise in the morning
Life is dawning, move on
How I treasure every minute
Being part of it, being in it
With the urge to move on

I've travelled every country
I've travelled in my mind
It seems we're on a journey
A trip through space and time
And somewhere lies the answer
To all the questions why
What really makes the difference
Between all dead and living things
The will to stay alive

Like a roller in the ocean
Life a motion, move on
Like a wind that's always blowin'
Life is flowing, move on
Like the sunrise in the morning
Life is dawning, move on
How I treasure every minute
Being part of it, being in it
With the urge to move on

The morning breeze that ripples
The surface of the see
The crying of the seagulls
That hover over me
I see it and I hear it
But how can I explain
The wonder of the moment
To be alive, to feel the sun
That follows every rain

Like a roller in the ocean
Life a motion, move on
Like a wind that's always blowin'
Life is flowing, move on
Like the sunrise in the morning
Life is dawning, move on
How I treasure every minute
Being part of it, being in it
With the urge to move on

Like a wind that's always blowin'
Life is flowing, move on
Like the sunrise in the morning
Life is dawning, move on
How I treasure every minute
Being part of it, being in it
With the urge to move on

Like a wind that's always blowin'
Life is flowing, move on

2.Hole in your soul (Engels)

You feel bad, let me tell you
We all get the blues
Sometimes live is a burden
Way down in your shoes
When it's bad, worse, worst
And you think you're cursed
Well if there's one thing for the better
That can turn you loose

There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul
There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul

My friend Sam is a chauffeur
Annie goes to school
Jerry works at the office
Sue lies by the pool
But on all week ends
When I meet my friends
And we're looking 'round for the action
We sure play it cool

There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul
There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul

Aha, you paint your world and use all colours
Aha, and then you find it all comes out too bright
You know it's only a lie
Aha, the songs you sing are too romantic
Aha, and when you want the truth
They only spit in your eye
Oh yeah, they're only tellin' you lies
Oh yeah, there's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul

You feel bad, let me tell you
We all get the blues
Sometimes live is a burden
Way down in your shoes
When it's bad, worse, worst
And you think you're cursed
Well if there's one thing for the better
That can turn you loose

There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul
There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul
There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul
There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul
There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul
There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul
There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul
There's gotta be rock'n roll
To fill the hole in your soul

3.Thank you for the music (Engels)

I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a bore
If I tell a joke, you've probably heard it before
But I have a talent, a wonderful thing
'Cause everyone listens when I start to sing
I'm so grateful and proud
All I want is to sing it out loud

So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would live be, whithout a song or a dance, what are we
So I say, thank you for the music, for giving it to me

Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk
Mm-mm, she says I began to sing long before I could talk
And I've often wondered, how did it all start
Who found out that nothing can capture a heart like a melody can
Well whoever it was, I'm a fan

So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would live be, whithout a song or a dance, what are we
So I say, thank you for the music, for giving it to me

I've been so lucky, I am the girl with the golden hair
I wanna sing it out to everybody
What a joy, what a life, what a chance

Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would live be, whithout a song or a dance, what are we
So I say, thank you for the music, for giving it to me

So I say, thank you for the music, for giving it to me

4.I wonder (departure) (Engels)

This park and these houses
Old streets I have walked
Everything dear
Will it be here
One day when I am returning

My friends will get married
Have children and homes
It sounds so nice
Well planned and wise
Never expecting surprises

I wonder, it's frightening
Leaving now, is that the right thing
I wonder, it scares me
But who the hell am I if I don't even try
I'm not a coward
Oh no, I'll be strong
One chance in a lifetime
Yes, I will take it, It can't go wrong

My friends and my family
This dull little town
Busses I've missed
Boys that I've kissed
Everything old and familiar

I wonder, it's frightening
Leaving now, it's that the right thing
I wonder, it scares me
But who the hell am I if I don't even try
I'm not a coward
Oh no, I'll be strong
One chance in a lifetime
Yes, I will take it
Yes, I will take it, it can't go wrong

5.I'm a marionette (Engels)

You're so free
That's what everybody's tellin' me
Yet I feel like I'm an outward bound
Pushed around refuge

Something's wrong
Got a feeling that I don't belong
As if I have come from out of space
Out of place, like King Kong

I'm a marionette, just a marionette
Pull the string
I'm a marionette, everybody's pet
Just as long as I sing
I'm a marionette, see my pirouette
'Round and 'round
I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette
Just a silly old clown

Like a doll
Like a puppet with no will at all
And somebody taught me how to talk
How to walk, how to fall

Can't complain
I got no one but myself to blame
Something's happening, I can't control
Lost my hold, it's insane

I'm a marionette, just a marionette
Pull the string
I'm a marionette, everybody's pet
Just as long as I sing
I'm a marionette, see my pirouette
'Round and 'round
I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette
Just a silly old clown

Look this way
Just a little smile is what they say
You'll look better on the photograph
If you laugh, that's o.k.!!

I'm a marionette, just a marionette
Pull the string
I'm a marionette, everybody's pet
Just as long as I sing
I'm a marionette, see my pirouette
'Round and 'round
I'm a marionette, I'm a marionette
Just a silly old clown

You're so free
That's what everybody's tellin' me
Yet I feel like I'm an outward bound
Pushed around refugee
