Lyrics – The Long Road

Marlboro Music 1994

Album The Long Road

by Dan Lucas

1985

For far too long I have endured being bullied
and I´ve tried to stick to their crazy guidelines
At some point it’s time to call it quits
and set off for a better and a free life

I leave it all behind me and look forward to the new
cause you never know what’s in store for you.

My passport is blue
And everything is new
And the man says: “Welcome to the golden west”!
And now that it´s up to you
tell me what you wanna do?
I can tell you from the bottom of my chest
“I´ll do my best”!

And now you come, you say it’s unfair.
Do you really think you´ve understood at all?
You have no idea; you’ve denounced each other over the years
to secure your own advantage behind the wall.

I leave it all behind me and look forward to the new
cause you never know what’s in store for you.

My passport is blue
And everything is new
And the man says: “Welcome to the golden west”!
And now it´s up to you
tell me what you wanna do?
And I tell you I will always do my best

I leave it all behind me and look forward to the new
cause you never know what’s in store for you.

Chorus:
And I came to start a new and better life in 1985

The Long Road

When I look back into my life, like on a railroad track
Like the pages of a book, but you can´t turn them back.
I can see good times and bad times that touched me deeply
But some stories of my life I have erased completely

When I was just sixteen and met the girl I loved
Well, I brought her flowers, she knitted me a scarf
when I asked her if she would stay with me
She said: Sorry, boy but you´re not what I need

Some memories are as close as they were yesterday
And some of them I should have just left out
But sometimes things just got in your way
When you thought you couldn´t live without

It´s been a long, long road until I´ve found
what I´ve been looking for
It´s been a long, long road, but now I know just
what I´m livin´ for.

And now I´m thinking ´bout all the wrong decisions I made,
and all the things I couldn´t achieve.
But I´m enjoying my life with the one I love
The greatest gift I´ve ever received.

Some memories are as close as they were yesterday
And some of them I should have just left out
But sometimes things just got in your way
When you thought you couldn´t live without

It´s been a long, long road until I´ve found
what I´ve been looking for
It´s been a long, long road, but now I know just
what I´m livin´ for.

It´s been a long, long road until I´ve found
what I´ve been looking for
It´s been a long, long road, but now I know just
what I´m livin´ for.

—- Solo —

Again and again I tried to please everyone
But mostly I have failed
But in finally I found my way
From which I can´t be dissuaded

Memories – Feat. Noah Fischer

They are the beauty of a rose
And the point of a knife
That brings tears to your eyes every day
They are the longing of your heart
The meaning of your life
It´s this feeling that will never go away

A thousand times your heart breaks
A thousand times this pain
A thousand times will come again

Memories stay forever
They bring tears to your eyes
Memories stay forever
They can give you a smile
All your memories

They´re like rain in the morning
that brings everything to life
like the summer sun that scorches your skin
They´re like the flame that warms your heart
And still cannot thaw the ice
You´ve got to face your grief and never give in

A thousand times the heart breaks
A thousand times this pain
A thousand times will come again

Memories stay forever
They bring tears to your eyes
Memories stay forever
They can give you a smile
Memories stay forever
They bring tears to your eyes
Memories stay forever
They can give a smile
All your memories

And now she´s sitting at home all alone
watching films from the past
Cause all she´s got are her memories
And she knows that they will last – forever.

Forget you

I’m burning inside for you,
but I can only dream.
You do not think of me,
Anyway, my heart could scream

I know you´re not mine
but I can only think of you.
Always, everywhere, now and here!
But what can I give to you? What can I give to you?

But how, how could I ever forget you?
Your beautiful eyes,
that never looked at me at all
How could I ever forget you?
When you really mean just everything to me.

I´m running far away,
Tears are running down my face.
But I’m just on my way
looking for a lonely place.

I want to be alone
maybe in another town
forget you and be sad
with no one else around, no one else around

But how, how could I ever forget you?
Your beautiful eyes,
that never looked at me at all
How could I forget you?
When you really mean just everything to me.

My heart is telling me to change the way I used to live
I couldn´t go on like this before
And if I wanna be happy then I have to fight for you
Or turn around and close every door

Somebody Loves You

There are nights when you lie awake
Alone in your bed and then you cry yourself to sleep
There are days you don´t understand
Why everybody treats you bad, when love is all you need

Then you stare at the phone and you feel so alone
Heartache tears you apart and it´s breaking your heart
When your loneliness grows
there is one thing that you should know

Somebody loves you, somebody cares
Somebody needs you and wants to be there
Somebody holds you tight in his dreams
Somebody loves you

So you say that you can´t go on
You feel like all your hope is gone and you have lost your way
You´re afraid you won´t find no friends
You say that they don´t understand no matter what you say

But you´re young and you´re sweet got the world at your feet
And you´ll laugh at the pain and you´ll get through the rain
Find a new way to go
cause there´s one thing that you should know

Somebody loves you, somebody cares
Somebody needs you and wants to be there
Somebody holds you tight in his dreams
Somebody loves you, oh yeah

Somebody loves you, somebody cares
Somebody needs you and wants to be there
Somebody holds you tight in his dreams
Somebody loves you, that someone is me, uhh

Somebody loves you, somebody cares
Somebody needs you and wants to be there
Somebody holds you tight in his dreams
Somebody loves you, that someone is me

Somebody loves you

What’s Left

The stars in the sky light up and pass away
some I rediscover amazed
others I search in vain again.

They shine like stars in the sky,
powerful states of this world,
strong, glorious, invincible
and more and more unfurled.

But let a beat of time pass and they’re gone
like stars fading in the sky.
People and peoples,
your traces lie in the desert sand.
Yellowed magazines bring back weak memories.
And what´s left? Tell me, what´s left?

Time goes by quickly, as if leading them away,
nothing remained of that which seemed eternal
that´s the price we have to pay.

They shine like stars in the sky,
the stars and starlets of this world,
glorified, dazzling, envied and unattainable.

But let a beat of time pass and they’re gone
like stars fading in the sky.
People and peoples,
your traces lie in the desert sand.
Yellowed magazines bring back weak memories.
And what´s left? Tell me, what´s left?

In such splendor the sense of being doesn´t lie
Only those who know of transience will find life.
Only who becomes alive in life cannot die
And will always be remembered
Till the end of time

I Can´t Believe It

They penetrated into all areas of life
To defeat their public enemies

The number of their henchmen grew steadily
Nobody should be free

And we are all suspicious
Because it could be
That we would disagree wooh hu hu

But victims are forgotten
Offenders in high places
They laugh up their sleeves wooh hu hu

I can´t believe it
I can´t believe the evil spirit´s still alive
I can´t believe it
I can´t believe
Those people are still there
And still rule our lives

The cardinals are paid princely by the state
It´s unacceptable

They´re busy all the time to cover up their crime
Who is responsible?

They simply wait until
The deeds are statute-barred
They just take, what they need wooh hu hu

But victims are forgotten
Offenders in high places
They laugh up their sleeves wooh hu hu

I can´t believe it
I can´t believe the evil spirit´s still alive
I can´t believe it
I can´t believe
Those people are still there
And still rule our lives

A Place In My Heart

There is so much I wanna say to you
Believe me every single word is true
With every look into my eyes
You´d see I´ll never tell you lies

Your loving arms are all I need tonight
I wanna hold you till the morning light
Dreaming your body´s touching mine
Sends chills right up and down my spine and baby

You´ve got a place in my heart
Even if we´re oceans apart and darling
I´ve known it right from the start
You´ll always have a place in my heart.

Oh, girl I think about you all the time
There ain´t no way to get you off my mind
And there is nothing I can do
Because I´m so in love with you and baby

You´ve got a place in my heart
Even if we´re so far apart and darling
I´ve known it right from the start
You´ll always have a place in my heart.

I still have a dream
Music and candles, you and me
And all I wanna do
Is make this sweet dream come true

There is so much I wanna say to you
Believe me every single word is true

You´ve got a place in my heart
Even if we´re so far apart and darling
I´ve known it right from the start
You´ll always have a place in my heart.

Sunshine

I´m sittin´ on your bedside
It´s time to read your favorite story to you
Again, it was a long day
We sang and danced and laughed
And you´ve learned something new

I´d cherish every moment
I can take to spend with you
And each time you´re around me
I see the sun comes shining through

You bring the sunshine into my live
Make a brighter day
Send the clouds away
Sunshine into my life
Make me smile again
through the pouring rain
Sunshine, sunshine, into my life

My thoughts are overturnin´
The years have gone you´re not a little girl anymore
Inside my heart is yearnin´
I think of you and wanna see you at my door

I´m glad of every moment
That I can spend with you
And each time you´re around me
I see the sun comes shining through

You bring the sunshine …

The way you laugh, the way you sing,
The way you look, the joy you bring
When cold winds blow, i know that
Even in hard times
You bring the sunshine

Sunshine into my live…

In The Safe Harbor

My soul´s been wandering for a long time
like a ship through the oceans
until someday it found the way
over an open sea of love
directly to your heart
for a good love to share
and threw his anchor there

Now it´s resting shrouded in the love coat
finally in the safe port
Now it´s resting shrouded in the love coat
finally in the safe harbor

My soul went tortuous paths a long time
like an old coach with a broken wheel
until someday it found the way
over a meadow full of flowers
directly to your heart
for a good love to share
stepped on the brake forever there

Now it´s resting shrouded in the love coat
finally in the safe port
Now it´s resting shrouded in the love coat
finally in the safe harbor

How long have I been looking for a way out
but I’ve lacked the courage for years.
But it’s just easier to start a new life
when the previous one was full of tears.

My soul is resting shrouded in the love coat
finally in the safe port
Now it´s resting shrouded in the love coat
finally in the safe harbor

You Reap What You Sow

Out there in the streets
Where everyone gets his needs
And who are you to through the first stone
The same stone that build my home

Sometimes you think you gonna be safe
When the night falls and the demon awakes
There is something you should know

It doesn´t matter if you´re young and alive
Sooner or later you´ll be under his knife
I´ve been to million places
And I saw it coming
You´re gonna here it though
You reap what you sow

He sees million faces
But yet he holds the aces
And who are you to think you can escape
He´s gonna find you under your cape

Now let me tell you one thing
And it´s now or never
You ain´t gonna live forever
You already know

It doesn´t matter if you´re young and alive
Sooner or later you´ll be under his knife
I´ve been to million places
And I saw it coming
You´re gonna here it though
You reap what you sow

You reap what you sow

Sometimes you think you gonna be safe
When the night falls and the demon awakes
There is something you should know
