01 When You Cry

When You Cry (by Heiko Arendt)

Another Tear is dripping from my soul again
My heart is numb just lost another friend
Secretly I start to cry
please save me from the pain
I’m praying to the sky
Is it over when I die?
Will these tears ever dry?

When You cry
Feels like I could die
Don’t you try to hide
Because I see it when you cry

Another hungry heart thats been left behind
Another broken soul thats been lost in time
The cries are all in vain
No running from my fate
I just can’t stand the pain
It always feels the same
Am I the one to blame

When you cry
Feels like I will die
Never try to hide
Because I see it when you cry

Who cries for another dearth
Who cries for our mother earth
Don’t tell me you never feel the pain
Who cries for the dying souls
Left behind with broken dreams

Who cries for the
I’m wondering
Is it all the same
Who cries for the children
living in fear facing our wars
Who cries for them
Still wondering
Is it all in vain

When you cry
I feel like I could die
Don’t you try to hide
I will see it when you cry

02 Wrong World

Wrong World (by Heiko Arendt)

There’s something wrong with the world today
He wants to live like yesterday
His hair is slowly turning grey
And he sighs

Getting up late every day
In a room so small like a prison cell
No friends to make no chance for escape
But he tries

Rain is pouring down in the dark of the night
He’s standing in the street execrating life
He has lost his faith in this endless fight
And he cries

He cannot stand what he’s feeling
He tightens the rope at the ceiling
He jumps from the chair and he’s fighting for air
…AND HE DIES

Something is wrong with the world today
He wanted to live like yesterday
If your world seems cold an grey
Dont you cry

03 A New Beginning

A New Beginning (by Heiko Arendt)

This world is dark and cold
I’m gonna leave tonight
My fear is all gone
I’m gonna start all over again

Save me
Guide me my way home
Hold me
Gimme shelter from the storm

We will find a world
For a better life
Where you can see the stars in the sky
We’ll find a world
For a new beginning

All the habbits that I broke
to free my mind again
And the wise words that I spoke
To free me from the pain

Save me
Guide me a way home
Hold me
My shelter from the storm

We will find a world
Where no one cries
Where you can hear the truth not the lies
We’ll find a world
Where we will start again

04 Don\'t Be Afraid Of The Night

Don’t Be Afraid Of The Night (by Heiko Arendt)

Time’s moving slow as the darkness has come
There’s someone sneaking up on me
Noises outside are breaking the silence
It keeps me from my dreams

Shadows are moving
I’m hardly breathing
Trying to run to the light
Here comes the night

Why do I always fear the night
When you’re not here with me
Why is the darkness my enemy
And voices are telling me
Don’t be afraid of the night!

Scratching at my window increases my fear
I run to the door and I lock it twice
Someone’s outside I know this is true
I take flight into the night

Footsteps behind me
Eyes staring at me
No running away from despair
I’m longing for the light
Here comes the night

Why do I always fear the night
When you’re not here with me
Why do I always wait for the light
And I keep telling me
Don’t be afraid of the night

Here comes the night
Why do I always fear the night
When you’re not here with me
Why is the darkness my enemy
And voices keep telling me
Don’t be afraid of the night

05 Keep Your Love Alive

Keep Your Love Alive (by Sarah McNamara)

Feel the life pulsating through each of my deep blue veins
If I stop resisting I feel I could fly away
It’s easy when you try
When you keep your love alive

Just give in and soon you’ll be winning
It’s life on fire when you keep your love alive
Keep your love alive
Keep your love alive
Keep your love

When I get that feeling I’ll know I’d do anything
To get that good love flowing and keep my heart singing
It’s good stuff you can’t buy
When you keep your love alive

Flying high you will touch the sky
It’s pure desire when you keep your love alive
Keep your love alive
Keep your love alive
Keep your love

07 The Inner Peace

The Inner Peace (by Heiko Arendt)

Father! What have you done?
It seems to me like everything went wrong
You never cared but for yourself

Father! Am I to blame
Why did you leave me out in the rain?
Cause when mama died, it wasn’t only your pain

Now I found a reason to survive
I won’t be sorry all my life
I will bury all my sorrows for all times
For the inner peace of mine

Father! Why do you cry
It was you who pushed the love away
You chose to live for something else

Now I have a reason to survive
And I won’t be sorry all my life
I will bury all my feelings for all times
For the inner peace of mine

And i pray in silence (for my inner peace)
And I won’t be sorry again (I will bury all my love)

09 The Inner Peace Part 2

The Inner Peace Part 2 (by Heiko Arendt)

To me he always was a stranger
My fear has gone now and turned into anger
The loaded gun in my hand
will send him to the promised land

He fell down on his knees
Begging me for mercy please
I put my gun against his head
Closed my eyes and shot him dead

And I saw him die before my eyes
On his knees, like a sacrifice
This is the end of all the lies
Finally he had to paid the prize
And I have buried all my feelings for all times
For the inner peace of mine.

What has he done to me
I thought that I could never see
The reason why my life went wrong
But now I’m here and I’m going strong

And I saw him die before my eyes
Blood and tears he had to pay the prize
For betrayal and for the lies
My gun has broken truce and ended all the cries
And I have buried all my sorrows for all times
For the inner peace of mine

11 The Inner Peace Part 3 

The inner peace part 3 (by Heiko Arendt)

Suddenly it occured to me
How wonderful my life could be
If I could just forget and let it go

My life is filled with precious time
You live yours and I live mine
Someday we’ll forget and let go
Let go

Standing in the firing line
But as the time passes by
I will bury all my love inside
For the inner peace of mine

12 Jasper\'s Warning

Jasper’s Warning (by Heiko Arendt)

I see the world
Lying there in front of me
Open your eyes
Look at the beauty there’s to see
No one cares
We are poisoning the seas
The Forest dies
Taking us the air to breathe

Black clouds gathering at the clear blue sky
Thunder strikes and we wonder why

Hear my warning!
What must happen here before we understand
Hear my warning!
We’re going straight to hell it’s close at hand
Hear my warning!
Warning!!!

Ruled by greed
Fighting wars that noone needs
Our Children cry
How can we look them in the eye?

Only Fools rush in
Where angels fear to tread
See our wounds
By the tears we shed

Hear my warning!
Hectic pace is driving me insane
The world is turning fast, it’s all in vain
Hear my warning!

Hear my warning!
What must happen here before we understand
Hear my warning!
We’re going straight to hell it’s close at hand
Hear my warning!
Warning!!!

01 Come Alive                      

Come Alive (by Heiko Arendt 2013)

4 o'clock in the morning
She's lying in her bed pondering
Outside the rain is pouring
She can't move, no she can't move

She likes the thunder
Flashing light, roaring like a lion

Suddenly the feelings come alive
Bringing her the will to survive

Another night in the darkness
She's still lying there trapped by fear
She's floating through the room
Wants to fly into the light

She likes the fire
Burning bright, blazing light

When suddenly your feelings come alive
They're bringing you the will to survive

When all your senses come alive
You're moving on you stay alive

02 The Storm                       

The Storm (by Heiko Arendt 2014)

Nighttime is falling
And pictures keep coming
From my past life when I was a child

When life was so easy
No worries or sorrows
The sun shined through every cloud

Now as a grown man
Life's become harder
No sun at the overcast sky

The storm will be coming and
I know there's no running
From the wind blowing into my face

Again and again

Watching the horizon
Fear is my companion
The clouds are gathering at the sky

The storm will be coming and
I know there's no running
From the surge that's flooding my grounds

Always waiting for the storm
I can see it coming
Always waiting for the storm
There will be no running from
Always waiting for the storm

High tides are coming
The ships are in trouble
Heavy rain all over the place

Thunder and lightning
The power is frightening
It's striking my shelter again

Again and again

Always waiting for the storm
I can see it coming
Always waiting for the storm
There will be no running from
Always waiting for the storm

03 The Devil Comes                        

The Devil Comes (by Heiko Arendt)

I believe in what you say
Or are you telling lies?
My strength has finally come to end
You say I'll be allright

Stop me
Hold me I'm falling
Help me
Guide me the way

And the fire in your eyes has gone
You lost your faith in everyone
And the fire in your eyes has gone away
And the Devil comes to stay

I have nothing left to give
We've got to break the silence
I don't wanna face my biggest fear
But the end seems near

Hold me
Stop me from falling
Help me
Lead me the way

And the fire in your eyes has gone
You lost your faith in everyone
And the fire in your eyes has gone away
And the devil comes to stay

And the fire in your eyes has gone
You lost your faith in everyone
And the fire in your eyes has gone away
And the devil comes to stay

04 Forgotten Words                           

Forgotten words (by Heiko Arendt)

Forgotten words
finally spoken
The love was deep
the faith unbroken

Standing the test of time
Living without a dime
Holding hands and going on and on and on and on

Standing together
Trusting each other
Lying there side by side
Holding on day and night

Forgotten words
finally spoken
Gone through pain
And going on and on and on and on

Stood for each other
Always together
Given birth to new life
Finally became man and wife

Forgotten words finally spoken
Forgotten words finally spoken

05 Believe                            

Believe (by Heiko Arendt)

I don´t believe in miracles
but I believe in love
I don´t believe that someone will save us
And I don´t believe in faith

time is passing at the speed of light
I´m living on the edge
I´m writing with the silver pen
onto the board of life

I believe, I believe in you
I believe, I believe in you

I don't believe in yesterday
'cause yesterday is gone
I don´t believe in fortune
that everything is already done

standing in the eye of the storm
screaming out your name
holding your hand all the time
I believe in us again

I believe, I believe in you
I believe, I believe in you

standing in the eye of the storm
screaming out your name
holding your hand all the time
I believe in us again

I believe, I believe in you
I believe, I believe in you

06 Don\'t Go                              

Don‘t Go (by Heiko Arendt 2014)

My body is telling lies
I won't believe it
And I smile

I think I'm close to die
You won't notice
But I try to scream

STAY
Don't leave me alone
I will never make it
When you're gone

STAY
This is too hard
Need you here by my side

No, don't go
Don´t leave me here alone
Can´t make it on my own

No, don't go
I got nothing more to give
Please don't go

In my sleep I cry
I will leave myself
Or at least I'll try
I don't want to die
Will I make it?
I'm gonna scream

STAY...

No, don't go....

And if I want me to come back
I make up my mind
Do I believe in me?
Or will I even try?

No, don't go...

07 All In Vain                               

All In Vain (by Heiko Arendt)

Ain't nobody talking
Ain't nobody listening
Ain't nobody cares about you
Everybody is staring
There's no understanding
There's just nothing to see

Still moving on
Until greatness is accomplished
Moving on
There's no fun

Tell me why
I feel so much pain
Life is down the drain
Is it all in vain?

Ain't nobody thinking
Ain't nobody wondering
What the hell is going on

Still moving on
Running after money
Moving on
Until you're gone

Tell me why
I feel so much pain
Life is down the drain
Is it all in vain?
All in vain

Tell me why
Is it all in vain
Tell me why
I feel so much pain
Life is down the drain
Is it all in vain?
All in vain

08 Light And Shadow                                

Light And Shadow (by Heiko Arendt 2014)

You can either think that it's all in vain
And keep drowning in your endless pain
Or you can go and search for the light
(It's there) even in the darkest night

You're climbing high
And then you fall again
If you fail
Then you just start again

We can choose between Light and shadow
Choose between light and shadow
Go for the light

You're not afraid of your destiny
You laugh the devil in his face
You're the magic warrior
Only you can put him in his place

Hard times come And they go again
If you fall Then you get up again

We can choose between Light and shadow
Choose between light and shadow

We can choose between Light and shadow
Choose between light and shadow

If you fail
Then you start again
If you fall
Then you get up again

Go for the light

09 What If?

What If? (by Heiko Arendt 2014)

Sunrise
You open up your eyes and here you are
Another night has passed and you are still there
Don't be afraid to welcome the new day
Don't hesitate to take a chance each day

What if you would ever try another way to go?
Then you would see your world will follow you
What if you'd leave the path and aim for something new?

Night falls
Another day has gone the silence comes
Tommorrow will bring you another chance
Don´t be afraid you are not alone
You close your eyes and fall in peaceful dreams

What if you ever try another way to go
Then you would see the world will follow, too
What if you'd leave the path and aim for something new?

What if you leave the path?
What if you start again?
What if you aim for something new?

What if you ever try another way to go
Then you would see the world will follow, too
What if you'd leave the path and aim for something new?

Life Reprise

Life Reprise (by Heiko Arendt 2013)

Now you're taking over
You should live your life like you think that it should be
I will be with you
And support you to fullfill your dreams

But if I´ll fade away
I´m sorry son
That was not supposed to be

Carry on
Carry on my son

Don't be afraid
The road is long and winding but it's safe

Along your way
My light will shine upon you everyday

You may find the love you need
And make your life complete

Because Someday
You´re gonna be a father just like me
And only then you'll understand
How much that means to me

Carry on
Carry on my son

Why should I worry?
Why should I cry?
Why do we suffer?
Why do we die?

There´s no laughter without cry
There´s no day without the night
In the end
All is well

Kids:
Look at the world in front of me
And all the beauty there´s to see
I´ll pack my bags and break away
I´ll be well
