Lyrics

Red Ford Falcon

In 1987, we arrived in Sydney,
down under in this incredible city.
The sun was shining brighter than at home.

The first thing I did, I bought a used car,
a 69er ford from my home not to far.
Red colored and the bumper dipped in chrome.

The 8 Cylinder needed more oil than gas,
the needle always had the red line passed.
The tyres were flat, but the motor sounded truely good

N ́ every weekend, we took the red ford falcon,
from Bowenplace to Maroubra Junction,
on to Anzac Parade n ́ straight to Manly Beach

My girl next to me on the front bench seat ,
turned the radio on and cruisin to the beat.
N ́ it makes me wanna roll my windows down, I ́m feelin free,
it makes me wanna roll my windows down, I ́m feelin free

We were on our way to Parramatta sportsground,
to watch Michel Jacksons show and his great sound.
Careless life, no thinkin ́ bout tomorrow.

The sunset paints the red horizon,
sparkling in your glasses like a diamond.
We were stucked in traffic and sang songs from John Farnham.

N ́ every weekend, we took the red ford falcon,
from Bowenplace to Maroubra Junction,
on to Anzac Parade n ́ straight to Manly Beach

My girl next to me on the front bench seat ,
turned the radio on and cruisin to the beat.
N ́ it makes me wanna roll my windows down, I ́m feelin free,
it makes me wanna roll my windows down, I ́m feelin free

Still dreaming from Coogee, Tamarama and Bondi,
Every day barbecues with friends at the poolside
A beer in my hand and look into the blue sky ...

N ́ every weekend, we took the red ford falcon,
from Bowenplace to Maroubra Junction,
on to Anzac Parade n ́ straight to Manly Beach

My girl next to me on the front bench seat ,
turned the radio on and cruisin to the beat.
N ́ it makes me wanna roll my windows down, I ́m feelin free,
it makes me wanna roll my windows down, I ́m feelin free

Reasons

We must teach our children, to smell the earth,
to hear the sunrise, singing birds.
To taste the rain, like a drop sliding down the window.

The fountain of life so misterious to me,
rushing down from the mountains fighting to be free
and reunite in the valley, in rivers, lakes and the sea.

Animals in clouds, cover the sky,
watch all the birds, flying slightly and high.
Nature ́s smiling through heaven with pride and care.

Where it seems like the world is out of line.
I dream of days, where everything is fine.
So many reasons to save this planet.

Put your cheek on the ground, breath and feel,
as the smell will rise, so great and real.
To touch the wind, when it whispers in your ear.

It ́s not the time to be cloudy and sad,
just when the dark blue heaven looks glad
and rainbows building magic bridges on the horizon.

I believe in nature, laughter and love,
goodness and mercy a God up above.
Heaven on earth, it ́s the things that I want to share.

Where it seems like the world is out of line.
I dream of days, where everything is fine.
So many reasons to save this planet.

Where it seems like the world is out of line.
I dream of days, where everything is fine.
So many reasons to save this planet.

Where it seems like the world is out of line.
I dream of days, where everything is fine.
So many reasons to take care of this planet.

We need to teach our children, no one to blame.
And when we ́re gone n ́ just ashes remain.
We still be a part of the earth and the wind and the rain

Rare Moments

You ́re the master of my fate,
you ́re the captain of my soul.
You are made of waves and honey,
when I see you I lose control.

Should our love no longer flow,
there is one thing you should know,
I ́ ll rememberthese rare moments.

Without your shiny, healing smile, my life is not worthwhile.
When you ́re touched by so much love, there is nothing more above
Should our love no longer flow, there is one thing you should know,
I ́ ll remember these rare moments.

Sending wishes to the sky
and one day I will try
́n realize to be happy for a while.

Catch golden hours in the past,
time is passing by so fast.
Memories are the essence for our love.

Sending wishes to the sky
and one day I will try
́n realize to be happy for a while.

Catch golden hours in the past,
time is passing by so fast.
Memories are the essence for our love.

Some of my songs will leave a trace,
put a smile upon your face.
I love yourlittle imperfections
and all these moments of affection.

Should our love no longer flow,
there is one thing you should know.
We ́ll remember these rare moments
́ cause some of God ́s greatest gifts
are these rare moments

Love It, Change It

It was another routine day, in a meeting with my boss.
Needed better conditions, but things were going cross.

I said we had an agreement, since middle of december.
Lost all my confidence, cause he can not remember.

When things start going wrong, as they sometimes will.
You have to change direction, away from the uphill.
Trust your inner voice, pursue another trace,
it ́s time for a big change

Life ́s a mistery, full of twists and turns.
Don ́t look back in anger, even if it burns.
The easiest way to figure out, is to ask yourself
Love it, change it or leave it
Love it, change it or leave it

So I made a decision, something big has to happen.
Was searching for a vision, to satisfy my passion.

When things start going wrong, as they sometimes will.
You have to change direction, away from the uphill.
Trust your inner voice, pursue another trace,
it ́s time for a big change

Life ́s a mistery, full of twists and turns.
Don ́t look back in anger, even if it burns.
The easiest way to figure out, is to ask yourself
Love it, change it or leave it
Love it, change it or leave it

Another chapter of life, is gonna start right now,
look for new horizons, get back into the first row.
Feel free in my head, n ́ I know where to begin,
the power is comming back, using the second wind.

Life ́s a mistery, full of twists and turns.
Don ́t look back in anger, even if it burns.
The easiest way to figure out, is to ask yourself
Love it, change it or leave it
Love it, change it or leave it

Love it, change it, leave it.
Love it, change it, leave it.

If you don ́t love it, you have to change it , or just leave it.
If you don ́t love it, you have to change it, or just leave it

Love it, change it, leave it Love it, change it or leave it.

Lighthouse

When my life is dark, empty and cold.
When I ́m sad and confused, and I think I ́m to old.
You send me a light to find my way home.
No need to be scared never feel all alone.

You ́re the lighthouse, of my life,
guiding me trough, stormy times.
Like a ship in the night out at sea,
you are all the time there for me.
You ́re the lighthouse, for our family

You ́re the tower of strength, sending me hope.
Shinin, with your beacon, n ́throwin me a rope.
When I get in trouble, you make me strong.
Your light never goes out, so this is your song

You ́re the lighthouse, of my life,
guiding me trough, stormy times.
Like a ship in the night out at sea,
you are all the time there for me.
You ́re my lighthouse
You ́re my lighthouse
You ́re the lighthouse for our family

You ́re the lighthouse, of my life.
Guiding me trough, stormy times.
Like a ship in the night out at sea.
You are all the time there for me
You ́re mylighthouse
You ́re mylighthouse
You ́re the lighthousefor our family

Dark Brown Eyes

I saw this young lady walkin through the door,
she was the girl I was looking for.
Came into my life took my ́ breath away,
my perfect match in every way.

Had a wonderful time down in switzerland,
walking on the lakeside hand in hand.
Together we where waiting till the sun goes down,
found my love in this beautiful town

Dark brown eyes and a smile in your face,
brings my heart beat ina stumbling pace.
That ́s the way, I met you in 85,
shure your are the one for the rest of my life.

3 month later, separated for a while,
missed you so much, feel like in exile.
I found a job in France and you went to the states,
was so afraid, ́our love could fade.

Dark brown eyes and a smile in your face,
brings my heart beat in a stumbling pace.
That ́s the way, I met you in 85,
shure your are the one for the rest of my life

After that we decided, to stay together,
the whole day a feeling like ́sunny weather.
We shared our love and sometimes the pain,
our love is like a soft warm rain.

Dark brown eyes and this smile in your face,
brings my heart beat in a stumbling pace.
That ́s the way, I met you in 85,
Shure your are the one with that beautiful ...

...dark brown eyes and this smile in your face,
brings my heart beat in a stumbling pace.
That ́s the way, I met you in 85.
Shure your are the one for the rest of my life.
Shure your are the one for the rest of my life.

Running Out Of My Words

Walking through the streets, every little thing has changed.
Been all around this world, where all the friends with whom I ranged?

Comin back to my home country, think what happens to you.
No one seems to be satisfied, lost in a world that is so untrue.

Runnin out of words, don ́t know what to say, I ́m speechless.
Leaders act too late, they disregard our distress.
What do they wait for, why don ́t they take action.
I ́m runnin out of words, there ́s nothing more to say.

Poverty and wealth is more and more widening.
In our familiy we talk frequently about emigrating.
All the beautiful places, where we could live
But I love my home, wanna stay there, would give anything if

Runnin out of words, don ́t know what to say, I ́m speechless.
Leaders act too late, they disregard our distress.
What do they wait for, why don ́t they take action.
I ́m runnin out of words, there ́s nothing more to say.

It seems to be a lonsome highway, like a bitter shade of blue.
Gonna think myself about this and sing this tune to you ... yeah

I ́m runnin out of words, don ́t know what to say, I ́m speechless.
Leaders act too late, they disregard our distress.
What do they wait for, why do---n ́t they take action.
I ́m runnin out of words, don ́t know what to say.
I ́m runnin out of words, don ́t know what to say, I ́m speechless.
I ́m runnin out of words

Tom A Hawk

It was a beautiful september morning,
all the birds sang in the trees.
You were riding on your Harley,
́n in your face a warm fresh breeze.

The sun appears on the horizon,
you felt free under a sky so blue,
but suddenly god ́s changing plans,
choosin ́ another way for you .

Hey Tom - A - Hawk we can ́t believe you ́ve gone too soon
I ́m sure you still ́ had so many things, you wanted to do.
Hey Tom A Hawk we can ́t believe you ́ve gone too soon
We are searching for the reason why, you ́re gone so soon.

Your passion were the fifties,
your favorite band The Riding Dudes.
Your loved to be a Rockabilly Man
́A great firefighter, too.

You ́ve helped so many people
But no one was able ́n helping you.
This day was like a bad dream
I shut my eyes to avoid the truth

Hey Tom - A - Hawk we can ́t believe you ́ve gone too soon.
I ́m sure you still ́ had so many things, you wanted to do.
Hey Tom A Hawk we can ́t believe you ́ve gone too soon.
We are searching for the reason why, you ́re gone so soon.

And no, you never walk away,
I ́ ll keep you always in my mind.
You were a cheerful and helpful guy,
we grieve a lot about you, my friend.

Now the waves of pain are getting higher,
but one day they ́ll become lower
and will lose themselves in the sand,
and my heart will no more cry.

Hey Tom - A - Hawk we can ́t believe you ́ve gone too soon.
I ́m sure you still ́had so many things, you wanted to do.
Hey Tom - A - Hawk we can ́t believe you ́ve gone too soon.
I ́m sure you still ́had so many things, you wanted to do.
Hey Tom - A - Hawk we can ́t believe you ́ve gone too soon
We are searching for the reason why, ... you ́re go---ne so soon
There ́s an eagle flying upto the sky,
listening to this tune
