2. Easy (if you want me)

3. Wind In Your Sail
Someday
We will stop fighting
Someday
And maybe then we'll let each other go
Coz how long can we keep carrying on
Before we both explode


4. You only tell me you love me when youíre drunk (Pet Shop Boys)
what a performance tonight
should I react or turn off the light?
looks like you're picking a fight
in a blurring of wrong and right
but how your mood changes
you're a devil, now an angel
suddenly subtle and solemn
and silent as a monk
you only tell me you love me when you're drunk

it's better than nothing, I suppose
some doors have opened and others closed
but I couldn't see you exposed
to the horrors behind some of those
somebody said: listen
don't you know what you're missing?
you should be kissing him
instead of dissing him like a punk
but you only tell me you love me when you're drunk
you only tell me you love me when you're drunk

and all of my friends keep asking me why
don't you say goodbye?
if you don't even try
you'll be sunk
'cause you only tell me you love me when you're drunk

what's the meaning
when you speak with so much feeling
is it over when you're sober?
is it junk?
oh you only tell me you love me when you're drunk
oh you only tell me you love me when you're drunk
oh you only tell me you love me when you're drunk


5.
Razorblades
Maybe I should just stay alone for a while
And lock myself in my room
No photographs or razorblades
Just a ghost that I once knew
Just give me a day, a week, a month or maybe two
and I'll find myself again
but baby I can't promise you anything
like anything will change
no baby I can't promise you anything


6.
Holidays are nice
Holidays are nice
Holidays are fun
Holidays are wonderful
If youíre the one
Thatís leaving on an airplane
Sitting on a train
or just wasting time
Watching the clouds take shape

And God I wish that I was running
Somewhere with you today

Everythingís lovely
Yeah everythingís fine
I've got more than I need most of the time
But still something seems missing
Like thereís a crack inside
If we could just get away
And leave what divides us behind


7.
If you want a home
she said if you want a home
why do you always go
I said I guess I just like being alone
she said why do you always go
I guess I'm just afraid of leaving someone

she said if you want a home
why do you always go
I said I guess I just need to be alone
she said why do you always go
maybe I'm just afraid of leaving someone

why do you always have to go
why do you always have to go
why do you always have to go
why do you always have to go


8.
Genius
[A light is a light]
what a bright idea
what are you some kind of genius
but try not to lose your mind
In a world of simple addition where
two plus two gets confused with your point of view


9. Zinc
instrumental


10. Reprise-Crescendo
(text comes from the German movie 'Absolute Giganten')
Ich will ein Eis.
Die erste Sache an die ich mich erinnern kann
ist wie ich von meiner Mutter
an Sylvester ne Wunderkerze bekommen hab.
Der Himmel war voll mit Raketen und Feuerwerkskörpern,
die explodiert sind und sprühten und es war laut.
Aber ich hatte keine Angst
sondern hab meine Wunderkerze in den dunklen
Himmel gehalten
und wie wahnsinnig geschüttelt.
Ich hab sie so doll geschüttelt,
so wahnsinnig doll,
wie ich irgendwie konnte oder noch doller,
bis ich nicht mehr konnte und immer weiter.
Besinnungslos und immer doller.
Und ich war klein,
und die Wunderkerze auch,
aber ich war beim grössten und
unglaublichsten dabei, was ich je gesehn hab.
Das tollste und grösste was es gab
und ich war dabei ohne das ich es wusste,
ohne das ich irgendwas wusste.
Ich glaub ich hab in meinem ganzen Leben
nie wieder etwas so gemacht.
So doll und kompromisslos und total.
Ich glaub ich hab noch nie wieder in
meinem Leben irgendwas erlebt,
was so gross war und so gigantisch.
Wie spät ist es eigentlich?

(The following translation is the one that was used for the subtitles on the cd, anyone who speaks German will notice that it's not an entirely correct translation)
I want icecream.
The first thing I can remember is
getting a sparkler from my mother.
The sky was full of exploding rockets and
glittering fireworks.
And it was loud.
But I had no fear.
I held my sparkler high into the dark sky and
shook it madly,
as hard as I could, as frantically as I could
and then even more.
I could go no further,
unconscious, yet still I carried on.
And I was small.
And so was the sparkler.
But I was part of the greatest and
most incredible moment I'd ever experienced.
The most amazing and greatest of all time and
I was there.
Without knowing, without knowing anything at all.
I don't think I have ever experienced
anything like that since.
So intense and uncompromising and total.
I don't think that in my life
I will ever encounter something
as big as that again
and so gigantic.
By the way, what's the time?
