Track Name: Broken Heart
Lost in my thoughts I take a walk
I feel the urge to leave my room
I call myself a stupid gawk
This surely is my inner doom
I thought I had a life to share
But here I’m standing on my own
I didn’t see this love-affair
He told me of it on the phone

I didn’t want to hear his illustration
Of how this woman looked like a sensation
My dream just came to an end
Broken heart – and there’s no glue
To make it whole again

I walk along the empty street
No people there to catch my eye
My heart does ache with every beat
Unhappiness just leaves me shy
Passing the window of a shop
I cast a glance at their display
Surprisingly I have to stop
A gleaming book just makes me stay

My creative soul nearly jumps of joy
For a minute am I acting coy
Part of me is on the mend
Broken heart – and there’s no glue
To make it whole again

I push the handle slowly down
This book attracts my artist’s eye
The cover is of sparkling brown
I touch it with a weary sigh
Then lift the board with childlike mind
To find white pages without text
This isn’t what I thought to find
I buy the book somewhat perplexed

My purchase really feels like a salvation
It surely helps to sooth my frustration
The sorrow will never end
Broken heart – and there’s no glue
To make it whole again
Track Name: The Magic Photo
One day the book comes to her mind
Tucked in a drawer
She pulls it out
Stroking the cover
She opens it
The sight makes her breathe out loud
Magic has changed the sheet
A photo is facing me
There’s room for poetry
Printed lines so neat
Make the page complete

Pulling herself together then
She tries to define
The pictured subject
A bridge in the sunshine
A romantic spot
This site she wants to detect

Magic has changed the sheet
A photo is facing me
There’s room for poetry
Printed lines so neat
Make the page complete

Once she knows where to find the place
She books a ticket
For a bus ride
It’s really wicked
Is she insane?
She stares at the book wide-eyed

Magic has changed the sheet
A photo is facing me
There’s room for poetry
Printed lines so neat
Make the page complete
Track Name: Love Is Worth It All
Love is Love is Love is worth it all
Love is Love is Love is mutual
Love is Love is Love is worth it all
Love is Love is Love is mutual

My Darling, just take notice of this lady
She’s on her own and she seems pretty sad
Her seat is next to ours, look how shy her smile appears
I’m glad today will change her coming years

My Sweetheart, have you seen the book she’s holding
It is still new and brings back memories
I’ll take out our tattered sheets and read them out to you
Those faded photos tell our story, too

Love is Love is Love is worth it all
Love is Love is Love is mutual
Love is Love is Love is worth it all
Love is Love is Love is mutual

I love the way you cherish our romance
I really care
This girl is watching us so pensively
She’s in the clouds
I wish I could reveal to her that I know of her fate
She never will forget this special date
She will remember

How fortunate we are to share a lifetime
I’m happy too
A piece of luck has let us cross our paths
I’m glad I found you
We’re holding dear those hackneyed sheets, a proof of our love
The more they age, the more I’m in awe of

Love is Love is Love is worth it all
Love is Love is Love is mutual
Love is Love is Love is worth it all
Love is Love is Love is mutual

This bloke who’s driving us, is really handsome
He looks a lot like me when I was young
I know it might sound funny, but he’s soon to lose his heart
He will be hit for life by Cupid’s dart

Out of the corner of my eyes I watch her
You surely do
Her fingers are entwined around the book
She knows its value
It would be such a joyful game to show her our sheets
I’m so abuzz, my heart is missing beats

Oh Honey, please don’t mess with what is foreseen
Their destiny is linked to our fate
We will be here again to see what happens to these guys
But they must never know of our disguise

Love is Love is Love is worth it all
Love is Love is Love is mutual
Love is Love is Love is worth it all
Love is Love is Love is mutual
Track Name: How They Met
Hey Mr. X, can’t take my eyes off you
I don’t deny, ‘cause this is really true
The way you smile electrifies my heart
And what you say sounds witty and smart

You touch my soul with every single phrase
A wink of you just makes me drop my gaze
‘Go with your guts’ a voice inside me yells
‘Be careful, girl’ my shattered self retells

Hey Sweety Pie, you look like fun to me
Your catching smile just sets emotions free
Let’s take it slow, why don’t we seize the day
I’ve nothing on, I could come along your way

Hey Mr. X, we ‘re in a fairy tale
what happens next, the ending seems so frail
I long for more, yet I’m not brave enough
I’m really scared, don’t want to fall in love

Hey little girl, don’t be so serious
what we have got is rather mysterious
your touching shyness just strikes a chord in me
it spices up this game of love, you’ll see
Track Name: What Happened To Me
I don’t know what happened to me
I can’t say where I want to be
Believe me she’s special, isn’t she?
Help me I could need some good advice
I was taken by surprise

I don’t want to think about her
I don’t want her on my mind
I don’t really want to take care
This is true, I swear blind

Guess what
My thoughts are free
Why then is it her I see?
When I least want it to be

Well I try really hard to make light of it
I fail predictably

I don’t want to think about her
I don’t want her on my mind
I confess I start to care
I think I’m in a bind

At first it was like a flash light
But then I couldn’t cast off her sight
It starts to feel so damn right

Whenever I am far from home
My memories circle around her

I didn’t want to think about her
I didn’t want her on my mind
I confess I start to care
I think I’m in a bind

I took a shine at this enchantress
She just crept into my mind
And a day without her feels so useless
What happened to me?
What happened to me?
Track Name: I'll Follow My Heart
I don’t know where to begin
What can I write to fill in
These pages that are still blank?
I really want to be frank
My sense was ambivalent
When he asked me to consent
To come with me to this place
And follow the photo’s trace

While we were taking a walk
We shared a most cheerful talk
I was amused by his pun
We flirted out of sheer fun
Yet there were more profound themes
We even bandied our dreams
I think I don’t have a choice
Must follow my inner voice

It takes a lot to stay strong
I hope he will prove me wrong
He radiates confidence
And yet it’s of no relevance
He’s not in search of romance
No need to give love a chance
I’m acting totally dense
Should follow my common sense

Now I know where to begin
What I can write to fill in
These pages will not stay blank
I really want to be frank
He seems to be my soulmate
I feel inspired by this date
My heart and mind drift apart
No doubt I’ll follow my heart
No doubt I’ll follow my heart
Track Name: Can You See
There’s this lovely lady
In the bus again
To see her here just means to us
A walk down memory lane
See the change in her face
The sparkle in her eyes
She can’t deny the obvious
To us it’s no surprise

Can you see, he won her heart?
There’s no doubt, it’s true
And her smile full of yearning tenderness
Is a hidden clue
Can you see, he won her heart?
Well, I think he knows
‘Cause the way he is gazing after her
Shows that they are close

I wonder what she ‘ll write down
In this magic book.
The walk they take will seal their fate,
I’d love to take a look
My love, don’t you remember?
Devotion filled those lines
Why don’t you open our book
And read again those rhymes

Can you see, he won her heart?
There’s no doubt, it’s true
And her smile full of yearning tenderness
Is a hidden clue
Can you see, he won her heart?
Well, I think he knows
‘Cause the way he is gazing after her
Shows that they are close
Can you see, he won her heart?
And I know for sure
That his heart beats with longing eagerness
Whenever he ‘s on tour
Track Name: You Hooked Me
Well, I planned to live my life in peace
With all I had I felt at ease
Then you turned up and changed my plans completely
When I saw your smile, it touched my heart,
My resolutions fell apart
I strove to get to know you, little cutie

Girl, you hooked me, I fell for you
Let me love you, please be mine

What started like a trivial flirt
Caught fire like a Stone Age chert
Guess, something clicked between us, can you feel it?
When you ‘re not here, I can’t think straight,
Keep waiting for another date,
I think you put a spell on me, dear cutie

Girl, you hooked me, I fell for you
Let me love you, please be mine

Before we met, I had love affairs
They didn’t last, but then, who cares?
Never meant to throw myself away on someone
You came and smiled and turned my head
I longed to have you in my bed
To show you what I feel for you, sweet cutie

Girl, you hooked me, I fell for you
Let me love you, please be mine

You slowly made me change my mind
The words you said were more than kind
Never met someone so life-affirming like you
Your laughter fills the air with joy
I feel jaunty like a little boy
I’m sweet on everything about you, cutie

Girl, you hooked me, I fell for you
Let me love you, please be mine

You make my eyes light up with love
Arouse feelings that were undreamed of
I’m deep in thought about how much I love you
The happiness you brought to me
I’ll give it back, girl, wait and see
Please share your live with me, my lovely cutie

Girl, you hooked me, I fell for you
Let me love you, please be mine
Track Name: Knight Without A Horse
You’re my knight without a horse
Babe, my knight without a horse
I know it sounds absurd
The craziest thing you’ve heard
But we’re in a fairy tale
This romance goes so well
My knight without a horse

You mean everything to me
I’m stunned by your gallantry
You swept me off my feet
With your courting me so sweet
I just fell in love with you
There was nothing I could do
You mean everything to me

Your caressing tenderness
Made my resistance effectless
Take me in your arms
I will fall for your charms
You set my world on fire
My heart beats with desire
For your caressing tenderness

You’re my knight without a horse
My knight without a horse
Your kiss tastes like sweet wine
Never felt this happiness
Wouldn’t want to go for less
My knight without a horse

Though we live in modern times
I can hear those ancient chimes
When you whisper in my ear
That you truly love me, Dear
You’re my knight without a horse
I love you, knight without a horse
Track Name: Love Is A Gift
Love is unique, yet it does concern us all
We can’t live without affection and care
We all long to find it
This sense of happiness
When love knocks on our door

You can pretend that you ‘re not in search of love
That all you want is uncommitted fun
You try quite hard to commend your way of life
But we all know – you just deceive yourself

Love is a gift, love is devotion,
Love has the strength to brighten up your day
Just start believing
There’s no need to fear it
Relish the joy it brings
Be sure, love changes everything for you and me

Here we all stand …so the circle is complete
‘cause our lives are wondrously entwined
This book of love proves our leaps in time
These yellowed sheets are written by yourself

Love is a gift, love is devotion,
Love has the strength to brighten up your day
Just start believing
There’s no need to fear it
Relish the joy it brings
Be sure, love changes everything for you and me

When I saw you, there was a flash of memory
You seemed to be someone I used to know
Strangely enough, I felt familiar with you two
Yet was confused, feared you could read my mind

Love is a gift, love is devotion,
Love has the strength to brighten up your day
Just start believing
There’s no need to fear it
Relish the joy it brings
Be sure, love changes everything for you and me

Love is a gift, love is devotion,
Love has the strength to brighten up your day
Just start believing
There’s no need to fear it
Relish the joy it brings
Be sure, love changes everything for you and me
Track Name: Book Of Love
What a fascinating sight occured
When a mysterious photo first appeared
I was confused but then I had to know
And it really kept me on the go

Every scene you visited with me
Wrote a new chapter in this love story
I noted down what happened while we talked
And remarked on all the paths we walked

This book of love
Reveals the magic power of our hearts
The photos tell the story of two parts
United in deep harmony

So take this book
Remember what it means to both of us
It started after I got on your bus
And hopefully will never end

Then your thoughts rendered a special touch
At first it didn’t seem to mean so much
But every time I entered your mind’s stage
Photos filled one after another page

This book of love
Reveals the magic power of our hearts
The photos tell the story of two parts
United in deep harmony

So take this book
Remember what it means to both of us
It started after I got on your bus
And hopefully will never end

This book of love
Reveals the magic power of our hearts
The photos tell the story of two parts
United in deep harmony

So take this book
Remember what it means to both of us
It started after I got on your bus
And hopefully will never end
