You're telling me everything is alright I guess I'll have to believe you Can't feel no love when I look in your eyes The way it used to be back then You're telling me you're not angry or anything And to be true I wouldn't know why you should Because for me nothing has changed And I feel that things have changed for you "Don't worry you didn't do nothing" you said "I just need some time. Be patient and give me some space and everything will turn out fine" Mean what you're saying (You) should be true from the start You better mean what you're saying to me girl Otherwise you're gonna break my heart It would be much easier if you told me just what is on your mind I don't feel better no no no and I don't feel worse when first you give me that look and then you cry "Don't worry you didn't do nothing" you said "I just need some time. Be patient and give me some space and everything will turn out fine" Mean what you're saying Should be true from the start You better mean what you're saying to me girl Otherwise you're gonna break my heart And like a rainbow falls and my spirit rises No decision yet, I don't like surprises Please don't tell me we are over, please don't tell me we are over Please Mean what you're saying Be true from the start Mean what you're saying to me girl Otherwise you're gonna break my heart You better mean what you're saying You should be true from the start You better mean what you're saying to me girl Otherwise you're gonna break my heart Otherwise you're gonna break my heart yeah you're gonna break my heart Saying otherwise you're gonna break my heart

I don't like to talk about myself But some say that sharing always helps I don't like to use heavy words Like guilt, sorrow, loneliness and hurt But autumn dances in the places where I miss you most Lonely hours, rainy Sundays, they bring back the ghost of your past Since you left me, there's less hours in a day Maybe that's why all the the colours fade away Green to brown and blue to grey, the feelings of the month of may seemed to change, you rearranged and left me here to stay 'Cause autumn dances in the places where I miss you most Lonely hours, rainy Sundays, they bring back the ghost (And) Autumn dances everytime I hear you call my name We may still be friends but things will never be the same I know you don't love me quite the way I do How would things be if I'd never layed my eyes on you I guess it doesn't matter now 'Cause autumn dances in the places where I miss you most Lonely hours, rainy Sundays, they bring back the ghost (And) Autumn dances everytime I hear you call my name We may still be friends but things will never be the same

I‘m all about Love in geometry but my memory keeps evading me When I think how it went down the last time when in my mind it was just fine People got hurt but I told myself boy you have heard „That’s just the way that love works, that’s just the way that love works“ And now you find me in a situation that I didn‘t wanna be I need a compass to draw a line cause I‘ve been running in circles for quite some time Am I playing on a lonely string still it fells like everybody wants to sing „That’s just the way that love works, that’s just the way that love works“ I’m in a love triangle an imaginary one Cause I’m the only one who seems to know what’s going on A love triangle the kind you wanna see But I just don’t think that in the end it works out well for me Still the story never seems to end, when am I in love and when do I pretend To be happy when I’m not anymore, when is it the right choice to walk out the door This uncertainty has got a hold on me and there’s something that eventually I had to see „That’s just the way that love works, that’s just the way that love works“ I’m in a love triangle an imaginary one Cause I’m the only one who seems to know what’s going on A love triangle the kind you wanna see But I just don’t think that in the end it works out well for me Then I know you have someone and I have someone too What am I supposed to do when I’m atracted to you i don’t think you really like me, I like you more than I should would I change it if I could I would I guess it’s understood Love triangle an imaginary one (an imaginary one) Cause I’m the only one who seems to know what’s going on (know what’s going on) A love triangle the kind you wanna see But I just don’t think that in the end it works out well for me Love triangle an imaginary one (it’s imaginary) Cause I’m the only one who seems to know what’s going on (noone else knows) Love's triangle the kind you wanna see But I just don’t think that in the end it works out well for me

It starts with the touch of our hands - was it a coincidence? Too early to tell, I don't know what I'm thinking then I touch yours as well The usual hugs turn meaningless when I look into your eyes There's something different this time And I thought you were happy with that guy of yours and now it seems I was wrong We should walk out the door before it's too late instead we take it to the dancefloor We're turning around, turning around, turning around No no no no no don't make me speak cause I'm not myself now No no no no no don't make me weak cause I'm not myself now Flashback: three years back we were in the same place, same day, same situation Our evaluation was to forget it then after so much time you just come and get it You aks "Do you love me?" "I'm not sure if I love you, but I want you" - "Don't you think we could be happy? Maybe never at one with the harmony but we'd make it up between the sheets" So what does it mean? What am I supposed to do? Don't wanna think about the feelings I might have for you It feels like we are in a bad place, love is not a car race, kisses have a bad taste when they are not honest You wanna make a liar of me so I can't be free but that ain't how I want it to be so maybe you see why we gotta go I guess we both know we should have said No no no no no don't make me speak cause I'm not myself now No no no no no don't make me weak cause I'm not myself now No no no no no don't make me speak cause I'm not myself now No no no no no don't make me weak cause I'm not myself now And in the morning I'd be calling to talk and we would go on a walk and maybe try to stay friends somehow I'm not saying that it was a mistake, now it's a little too late to wonder how it could be right now Next time I'll be calling your name you know it won't be the same because there might be a second time And I hope I can be strong when temptation comes along i will say No no no no no don't make me speak cause I'm not myself now (Flashback) No no no no no don't make me weak cause I'm not myself now (Flashback) No no no no no don't make me speak cause I'm not myself now (Flashback) No no no no no don't make me weak cause I'm not myself now (Flashback) No no no no no don't make me speak cause I'm not myself now (Flashback) No no no no no don't make me weak cause I'm not myself now (Flashback) No no no no no don't make me speak cause I'm not myself now (Flashback) No no no no no don't make me weak cause I'm not myself now (Flashback)

Ten past eight, morning's sun wakes me up again Empty bed. Did you get up before me and leave? The walls in this room are looking für some sings of love But there's nothing to be found Are you coming home, are you coming home tonight? Get all your excuses right cause I'm sick of alibis Are you coming home, are you coming home to me? Wear your best apology cause it's never what it seems Are you coming? Then you say I'm okay I just didn't sleep at all It was fun, stayed all night and totally forgot the time Are you coming home, are you coming home tonight? Get all your excuses right cause I'm sick of alibis Are you coming home, are you coming home to me? Wear your best apology cause it's never what it seems Are you coming? Would you betray me? Would you go behind my back? Would you break my heart, lose my trust? Is the second time the charm? Are you coming home, are you coming home tonight? Get all your excuses right cause I'm sick of alibis Are you coming home, are you coming home to me? Wear your best apology cause it's never what it seems Are you coming?

Lilly Lilly Lilly Lilly... Met you at a concert, you were up on stage And I came a little too late then I realized that i had to wait I can't quite remenber the first song you sang But your voice casts a spell and I wasn't sure if it was heaven or hell no And I would hold you in my arms and never let you go I would tell you who I am and hope that you know that I'm losing my mind we're running out of time But in any universe you're one of a kind It's your lips, your eyes, your everything You drive me crazy but I can't help it It's your hair, your style, the songs you sing I think I'm gonna fall in love again Lilly Lilly Lilly Lilly.... And I would tell all my friends I'm in love with you They'd say that my girlfriend, she doesn't deserve this Maybe all the problems are not found on the surface They don't understand that I love her her too But it's a different kind of love, the kind that keeps you together when the times are rough The kind I wouldn't trade, wouldn't mind having it for all my life She's the kind of girl I can really trust I know Lilly that I'm silly but what can I do Nothing's ever gonna change my point of view With your rhymes and your melodies, keep your songs the remedy I will take a listen when I'm feeling blue I know it is all on my mind, I tell you one more time you're one of a kind And if someone doesn't see it then he must be blind cause your music and your lyrics make my soul unwind It's your lips, your eyes, your everything You drive me crazy but I can't help it Your hair, your style, the songs you sing I think I'm gonna fall in love again Lilly Lilly Lilly Lilly... Lilly Lilly Lilly Lilly... Your lips, your eyes, your everything You drive me crazy but I can't help it Your hair, your style, the songs you sing I think I'm gonna fall in love again Your lips, your eyes, your everything You drive me crazy but I can't help it Your hair, your style, the songs you sing I think I'm gonna fall in love again
