LIKE A GHOST
(from the album "Rising To The Challange")

I miss you
I forgive you
I bless you
I can’t forget you

You blamed me
You taunted me
You changed me
You haunt me

Stayed up all night to write a letter
Pen in my hand but nothing to say
Some drunks picked a fight under my window
I called the police but the line was busy

Where did you go that misty morning
Passing through the door just like a ghost

Picked up my guitar to write a lovesong
But all the notes just came out wrong
Maybe I should switch to the piano
Or leave my sorrows to the wind

Where did you go that misty morning
Passing through the door just like a ghost

 

DON’T KNOW ANYTHING
(from the album "Rising To The Challange")

Your lying faces on the TV-screen
Reveal the truth you’re tryin’ to hide
Your mannered voices, your polished jive
Arousing pictures of decline

You’re going nowhere
You’re going down ’cause
You don’t know anything at all

You little cheaters save your breath
You’re gonna pay up what you owe
Your stage directions failing left and right
Why don’t you simply fade away

Your days are numbered
You’re headed south ’cause
You don’t know anything at all
                 
         You selfish traitors smooth dictators
You’re gonna pay up what you owe
                 
You’re going nowhere
You’re going down ’cause
You don’t know anything at all

 

SAFE IN THE MIDDLE
(from the album "Rising To The Challange")

         Last weekend we took to trip to Paris for a song
     It was a gift for my baby she’d been wishing for so long
Back home we had a stupid fight, then she was gone
Don’t cry for her got other fish to fry

I won’t let her spoil the party
I’m gonna have fun
What else is life good for?

Believe me I know what it means to stand your ground
(and it’s not always easy)
I go to elections, get my checkup twice a year
         Got a home savings plan and a guaranteed life policy
(Just for minimal security)
Well, some tongue-waggers say that I’m the little guy

but I won’t let them spoil the party
I’m gonna have fun
What else is life good for?

You might think my life is perfect,
but sometimes I feel a little lost – well, just a little,
and sometimes, sometimes I could cry all night,
you better not ask me why
Maxed out my credit card on a psychic hotline,
but still haven’t got a clue what’s going on
I’m just doing what I get told, matchin’ common expectations,
so why do I feel so damn fucking empty all the time?

Last weekend we took to trip to Paris for a song
It was a gift for my baby she’d been wishing for so long
Back home we had a fight, then she was gone
But I don’t cry for her, no I don’t cry for her

I love my life
I love my life
I Feel safe in the middle
of our lovely and caring modern society

 

STRANGER
(from the album "Rising To The Challange")

There’s a stranger
there’s a stranger in my mind

There’s a stranger buried in my mind
Don’t know where he came from – maybe he’s from space
Bringing some weird message to the human race
        
He wants my attention, he’s stealing all my time
His sweet and friendly whisper’s creeping down my spine
Amazingly my fascination beats the fear

There’s a stranger
there’s a stranger in my mind
There’s a stranger buried in my mind
I feel no guilt, no shame since our relations have begun
I’m starting to believe that I’m the chosen one

Confusion’s takin’ over, phantoms driftin’ through my brain
You better go away now, don’t want to hurt you again
Don’t wait for answers you would not understand

Strange things keep happening to me at every turn
(Five hundred years ago I would have burned)
Confusion’s takin’ over, phantoms wavin’ through my brain
(Don’t care if I’m a lunatic, don’t care if I am sane)
Please leave me alone now, don’t want to hurt you again
Don’t wait for answers you would not understand

 

GRACE OF YOUR TOUCH
(from the album "Rising To The Challange")

The night is cold and I’m thinking of you
I can’t resist ’cause I’m feelin’ so blue
There were good times I will never forget
And some moments that I deeply regret

Don’t get me wrong – I just don’t want you back
My life has changed, now I’m on the right track 
But when I miss you the pain gets too much
And I’m longing for the grace of your gentle touch

         
When your life feels like a dream
And you don’t know where you belong
When there is white noise on your screen
It's hard to see which side you're on

I talk to strangers on the telephone
Get lost at places I have always known
Feel so deranged, still I don’t know why
I’m tryin’ so hard, and it’s just not right

Don’t get me wrong etc.
         
Repeat chorus

 

RISING TO THE CHALLENGE
(from the album "Rising To The Challange")

Trapped in a sticky situation
How the hell will I get out of this
My whole life’s running out of order
Since I returned the serpent’s kiss

Who’s that dude there at the corner
Seems he’s looking straight at me
The suburban shadows getting longer  
(I’ll) cool my head, just wait and see

GOT MY BACK AGAINST THE WALL
A VICTIM OF TEMPTATION
I’M HEADING FOR A FALL

I’M BENT ON STAYING ALIVE
READY FOR STRAIGHT TALKING
WITH MY BRAND NEW FORTY FIVE

The heat is up, the pressure’s growing
I taste the peril, feel the squeeze
But I’m rising to the challenge
It’s bringing out the man in me

Repeat chorus

 

ENLIGHTENED
(from the album "Rising To The Challange")

My life is a long road, all paved with gold
My house is a palace, incredibly old
I’m dancin’ on moonbeams, I sleep on a cloud
I live in peace, far from the crowds

Life’s good to a holy man 
Life works great for a holy man         
Once you’re enlightened – everything’s cool
You don’t have to worry no more         

My girlfriend’s from Venus, she’s blessin’ my day
Her astral beauty’s giving me cachet
I’m chatting with angels, I meet with The Boss
To serve The Creation is a bloody fine job

I was a young man just like you
Without an idea what to do
Then I was touched by the flame
Torn out of the game
Reaching out my hands for something new

Now that I’ve told you what it’s all about
Go, spread the word, don’t leave any doubt
Just relax and welcome the spirit
Enlightenment’s sexy, surely you’ll dig it

Life’s good to a holy man
Life’s A PARTY for a holy man
Once you’re enlightened – you’re nobody’s fool
Playing only by your own rules

 

SOMEONE SAID
(from the album "Rising To The Challange")

In his anxiety man created god
And from that time on a lot of things went wrong
We sacrificed our innocence canonized our ambivalence
For a seat in the celestial parquet

Wasting our lives ’cause someone said that someone said
Holding out in slavish ties just ’cause someone said
Retaining love ’cause someone said that someone said
Waiting ’til The One arrives just ’cause someone said

That’s the trouble with revelation of all kind
No one really knows a ghost light of the mind
We got to trust the hypocrites depending on their benefits
Still the soul knows it’s not right

The heart’s eclipsed ’cause someone said that someone said
We got our minds controlled just ’cause someone said
Feeling dirty and debased ’cause someone said that someone said
We scorn the joy of life just ’cause someone said

Wasting time ’cause someone said that someone said
Holding out in slavish ties just ’cause someone said
Retaining love ’cause someone said that someone said
Waiting for HIS kingdom just ’cause someone said 

 

A DREAM OF FALLING
(from the album "Rising To The Challange")

I had a dream
I was strayin’ along the streets
Couldn’t find my way home
in the sallow neon light

Then there she stood – like a dream within my dream
She said: What’s wrong with you?
May I cheer you up, know what I mean?

There’s nothing to keep you from falling
Nothing that keeps you from falling
Nothing can save you from falling

We got down to business in her dusky little room
She wrapped her wings around me
Drifting away I heard her say:
                 
Repeat chorus

When all is said and done
We shall be as one

 

GOING IT ALONE
(from the Eddie Jobson tribute album "Theme Of Appreciation")

Heard a whisper in the dark – turn off the music
Knew it was there right from the start
Truth is caught between the lines – business as usual
Thanks for caring, I'm doin' fine – entangled in bluescreen desires

I will take a stand against the madness
The path is clear, I'm taking control
I'll turn the tide, I hold all the aces,
I'm goin' it alone


A sound like thunder from the skies – a light in the distance
The well of wisdom running dry
Checked the systems, changed my mind – the party's over
Thanks for caring, I'm doin' fine – entangled in bluescreen desires

Repeat chorus


Heard a whisper in the dark – the voice of a shadow
Checked the systems, tied my boots
Don't worry, there's nothing to lose
