Track Name: Personal barmaid
I'm walking like a bum
I can't go straight I'm full of rum
trying to resist to coldness, I'm homeless

Staggering into town
harassing people cause I'm down
trying to resist to madness, I'm hopeless

Does anybody know where she is?
Does anybody know where she lives?
I'm thirsty again

Roaming like a dumb
My mouth is dry when will she come?
Waiting for an aid from my personal barmaid

I'm the drunkard on the run
Pour Bacardi in my rum
Waiting for an aid from my personal barmaid

Does anybody know
Does anybody know where she is

Cause I need her
Yes I need her now
Track Name: Housatonic River
You say I shouldn't watch television
But I don't agree with you
You say it's not a solution
But what else can I do

You know i feel fine in my chair
I'm still and I stare
I'm like a paper in a windy street
Or like a lizard under the heat

And you say I should stand up
But you talk, you can walk away
Leave me please leave me alone
I'm happy I feel like a stone

Thinkin' of Bridgewater
Housatonic river
Will I go there and get her
Or will I stay and lose her
Or will I stay a loser
Track Name: Girl next door
I met her at the grocery store
the girl that lives next door
she had lips that looked so sweet
the kind that i’d love to meet

I saw her glance at me
with a little mistery
I think im gonna lose control
cause there's a fire in my soul

I wish so hard we could talk for a while
I wish so hard that she gave me a smile
She’s just a dream, that I can’t reach
I wish so hard

I saw her walking in a sensual way
but there was nothing I could say
because i’m shy, because i’m weak
There was no word that I could speak
“and a voice said “
come on come on
Track Name: Eldorado
Sometimes I feel good, sometimes I’m bad
My heart is lonely, you make me mad
You are my hope, you are my new frontier
I gotta run away from here

Middle Eastern girl, you are so still
Mysterious woman, you make me thrill
What are you doing, what do you feel?
I’m on the way, tell me your will

It’s a long road, and I’m running wild
It’s a long ride, to come at your side
It’s a long road, a hard way to go
It’s a long ride, you are my Eldorado…

Cheyenne!

You are my glory, you are my gold
Will you remember the words I told
I’m not in hurry , but you know the drill
I’m on the way, tell me your will

Middle Eastern girl, you are so still
Mysterious woman, you make me thrill
What are you doing, what do you feel?
Show me your windmill
Track Name: Long horn city
I met her at the butcher’s
On a lovely sunny day
I told her : Hello Misses
Do you wanna go my way ?

She told : Mister Jonhson
Why are you so good to me?
I answered : My dear lady
I just wanna set you free

Mmmmmm I took her in my Cadillac
I took her on my Cadillac

In longhorn city with my girl we ride
She is naked and she runs me wild
In Longhorn city with my girl
I’m feeling glad
Track Name: Northern land
I can't wait that the cold days die
I can't stand the nights passing by
Something strong's pushing me to fly
Far away from here

Well I'm here standing on my own
Motionless, like a heavy stone
What is life when the sun is gone ?
Far away from me

There are so many things that I'd like to do
So many words I've got for you

And so many smiles
so many songs
I wanna sing to you
/Telling I love you

If you say that it's time to meet
We could walk all along the streets
When I'll come to this northern land
Will you take my hand?

I won't hide anything from you
And I know you are also true
So let us see what the night will be
I hope you'll agree
Track Name: Dig a grave for granny
When I was sad and on my own
there was no place like granny's home
She met me, with a little smile

On a chair in the kitchen
When she cooks the sunday chicken
I'd stay, for a little while

(She said) No one can survive
We have to pass away
And she closed her eyes
With a little smile

Can anybody help me?
I’m digging a grave for granny
Can anybody help me?
I'm digging a grave for granny

A housecoat with some flower prints
And a tiny smell of mint
My granny, that's how she was

She said : " grandson, life is rough
But I know you are tough enough
Remember, to lead a life of love"

But her time had come
And last night she's gone
She closed her eyes
With a little smile
Track Name: Mirage motel
You're a stranger, that's what I guess
Don't be worried, it's the right address
We are gonna make it right
Can you see the lights

If you want to, you can have a rest
Don't be frightened, we will do our best
Everything will be allright
You will feel the night

If you are thirsty – we got some wine
If you are hungry – our chili's fine
We have all kind of seeds
We can fulfill your needs
Please come in

Come in come into, the mirage motel
Can you hear, can you hear the bell
Come in come into, the mirage motel
Welcome welcome to hell

If you want to, you can have a rest
Don't be frightened, we will do our best
Everything will be allright
You will feel the night

If you want blood– If you want meat
If you want love – or something to eat
We have all what you need
We'll satisfy your greed
Please come in
Track Name: Sister Sue
When you wake up early in the morning
Don’t you have that strange little feeling
Something’s growing fast and warm inside of you

Since we met on that sunday morning
I can feel your heart that is bleeding
Will you throw your bulky rosary away

Yeah yeah yeah
Jesus he loves you
Yeah yeah yeah
Jesus he loves you
Less than I do

Oh Sister Sue, I love you, let us live together
Oh Sister Sue, it will be fun my lovely nun

I can see your lips / are on fire
And your eyes betray your desire
Let me free you from your bloody nunnery

What will you do, my pretty nun
You'd better ru-un
Why are you waiting
A new life of fun
Is coming around
Track Name: Paradise
Somewhere in the desert
There’s a place you need to know, my friend
There’s a solitary man
In the middle of waterfalls

There’s an eagle in a tree
Staring quietly down to me
And a solitary rock
With a candle on it, wonderful

I’d like to take you there

(Oh my love) you won’t believe me
This is a paradise
It’s such a mistery
An answer maybe
It’s unbelievable
This is a paradise

There’s a solitary man
In the middle of waterfalls
And a solitary rock
Surrounded by fireballs
Track Name: White coffee skin
You are there, a jewel that I would like to touch
A face, I’m staring so much
Your eyes are hazy
Can I come within?

There’s a fire, chasing the cold
I’ll cherish all the wonders you hold
I wanna be lazy
On your white coffee skin

I wanna taste the forbidden fruit
It’s a desire that I just can’t mute
I wanna dive in the land of lutes
Open your gate
Show me the route

It’s a promise, I’ll love till you the morning light
I won’t let you sleep tonight
Don’t think I’m crazy
Can I come within?

I’m hanging on the gloss of your lips
Will you close your eyes when I’ll kiss?
I wanna be lazy
On your white coffee skin
