You’re Dead

When you buried your face into my chest (your little hiding place)
I would never have guessed what a little cheat you are
What a liar you turned out to be
How we even got this far is a mystery

I know you’re not distraught, so you can lose the frown
You must know you just caught me when my guard was down
And when you asked me: “Are we breaking-up?” you knew, already, what the answer was
And, no, we won’t be making up because...

Bang! Bang! You’re dead!
This is out of control and I am sick of the whole shebang, I said
Am I making it clear? I want you out of here!

I used to think that I’d rather fight with you than fall in love with somebody new
I think I needed shaking up; I’m not going back to how it was
This time we’re not making up because...

Bang! Bang! You’re dead!
This is out of control and I am sick of the whole shebang, I said
Am I making it clear? I want you out of here!

Pow! Pow! You’re dead!
This is out of control and I am sick of the whole, big row, I said
Am I making it clear? I want you out of here!

So now you want to millennium
Well, that comes as no surprise because I can read you and I don’t need you
This time you went too far and I know exactly what you are
I understand you and I can’t stand you
But how come, during times like this, I still want your touch and I want your kiss
It’s insane and I can’t explain why
You’re not the one for me although I just can’t seem to let you go
You appal me
Okay call me

You Jane

I hope you find what you’re looking for
Do you even know what that is, anymore?

I hope he’s really the one who will make all your dreams come true
But if, by some unexpected chance, this doesn’t turn out to be your fairy tale romance

Just don’t come crying to me
Don’t come crying to me
This is the way that you want it to be so don’t come crying

There’s really no need to explain
He’s Tarzan and you’re Jane
He’s Bogart, you’re Bacall
And I’m sure he has it all

Just don’t come crying to me
Don’t come crying to me
This is the way that you want it to be so don’t come crying

There’s really no need to explain
He’s Tarzan and you’re Jane
He’s Bogart, you’re Bacall
And I’m sure he has it all

He doesn’t have to try too hard
He’s Gable, you’re Lombard
He’s Richard and you’re Liz
I guess you’re lucky to be his

Meet Cute

I’d never met her before I found the heel that came off her shoe
I laughed when she swore
Her lips were red and full
I said: “I think I want to kiss you”
She said: “When will you know for sure?”

I said: “It’s too cold to snow”
She said: “Just what exactly does that mean?”
I said: “I don’t know”
We ordered more drinks
She said: “Tell me where you’ve been and where you want to go”

And am I really sitting here?
This is a story with intrigue
Because, in case it isn’t clear, you’re really way out of my league

And this is really just too good to be true
I have to pinch myself because I’m here with you

And am I really sitting here?
This is a story with intrigue
Because, in case it isn’t clear, you’re really way out of my league

And am I really sitting here?
This is a story with intrigue
Because, in case it isn’t clear, you’re really way out of my league

Back A Bit... Stop

Every single thing about my so-called life was boring until you exploded into my world
And I can say, without a doubt, the liaison we’re exploring has seen a whole new side of me being unfurled

Of course I’d love to fall head over heels for you but there’s the question of your lovely fiancé
And I won’t be swayed at all by any arguments that you put because I’ve told myself we can’t go on this way

So get back a bit, get back a bit, get back a bit
Back a bit... now stop

Since you’ve begun to show what kind of person you are I think I might have had an epiphany
That’s why I need to go and this may sound a little bizarre, but I’m going before you do the same to me

So get back a bit, get back a bit, get back a bit
Back a bit... now stop

How does a girl like you get to be a girl like you?

Stop Thief!

You’re in so many of her dreams that there’s no room left, it seems, for me
And I curse the day you met and I’m begging you to set her free

You’ve opened doors for her and that’s good, in ways I never could, I know
But now you’re closing one on me and there’s nowhere I can see to go

You could have anyone you want so just have some debutante, not her
Oh, can’t you disappear today and let us be the way we were?

So it is up to you now then, please think about this when you choose
When someone’s feeling this bereft there’s really not much left to lose

The Girl From The DDR

Him:

And when you said: “Something is clearly bothering you,” it was as if you’d just read my mind
I said: “It’s nothing” which, of course, was entirely untrue
But I was terrified that you would find...

Her:

Etwas stimmt doch nicht
Was ist denn los?
Wirklich? Soll ich’s glauben?

Him:

That I’ve been using you all this time
And it’s not that I don’t adore you (because I do)
But I’ve realised that I don’t think I’m ever going to leave my girlfriend for you

Him:

And when you entered your number into my ’phone I knew, right then, that I would never call
I was going through the motions, which I’d never usually condone, but you were safely trapped behind ‘The Wall’

Her:

Meine Nummer. Ruf mich an
Ich warte auf dich
Irgendwann, sehn wir uns wieder

Him:

So I’ve been using you all this time
And it’s not that I don’t adore you (because I do)
But I’ve realised that I don’t think I’m ever going to leave my girlfriend for you
I’m never going to leave my girlfriend for you

Deer Caught In The Headlights

You won’t give it a thought and that’s neither wrong nor right
But I’m the deer that’s caught in your headlight
And how can it be that just one glance is enough to petrify me?
How do you do that stuff?

Because as soon as you look my way, that’s when I totally freeze
And it’s at moments like these that I can’t think of a single thing to say
Except for, well, maybe: “You’re just too pretty for me”

You wear a stunning dress and then say: “What, this old thing?!”
And the ingenuousness is just so captivating

And as soon as you look my way, that’s when I totally freeze
And it’s at moments like these that I can’t think of a single thing to say
Except for, well, maybe: “You’re just too pretty for me”

And if I were a painter I’d just paint portraits of you
You’d be in everything I do

524 Fidelio

In amongst the stars: 524 Fidelio
Between Jupiter and Mars
Wherever you go, I’ll go

Effortlessly chic
With scarcely any make-up
You’re really quite unique from the second that you wake up

Reckless comments notwithstanding, there’s one thing I must do
Right here, right now, here’s me handing my whole life to you
And the things I’m saying here I won’t regret because I’d miss you even if we’d never met

Somewhere in the sky: 524 Fidelio
Don’t ever say “Good-bye” because what I’d do, I don’t know

Don’t joke about it, please (pretending that you’re leaving)
I’m down here on my knees
How more embarrassing could this be?

Reckless comments notwithstanding, there’s one thing I must do
Right here, right now, here’s me handing my whole life to you
And the things I’m saying here I won’t regret because I’d miss you even if we’d never met

End Credits

There’s never really a good time to say goodbye
But don’t pretend it’s not a relief to hear me say:
“I’m thinking, right now, maybe we should end it”

Because it’s true
The closer I get to you, the further I get away from me (the person that I used to be)

It wasn’t always like this before; that we were in love there is no doubt
But I’m not happy anymore and, for that reason, I’m out

And it’s true
The closer I get to you, the further I get away from me (the person that I ought to be)

This is no longer any fun
This couple will never be strolling into a blood red setting sun while the end credits are rolling

Yes, it’s true
The closer I get to you, the further I get away from me (the person that I want to be)

Mystery Date

Him:

I can’t stand this apprehension
Maybe we should kiss to break the tension?
And I keep telling myself: “Yes, it’s true, I really am just sitting here alone with you”

And no one could’ve been more surprised than me
When you wrote your number down and said: “Call me at the first opportunity”

Because this does not happen to me
Things like this do not happen to me
This does not happen to me
Things like this do not happen to me

This does not happen to me
Things like this do not happen to me
This does not happen to me
Things like this do not happen to me

Her:
