Verse 1
the two together
they twist through time
on the town
tip top they shine
tied unified
in fact intertwined
step to the left
movement synchronized
now to the right
in their gazing eyes
exist in balance
perfect compromise
the back ground beautiful
a sun rise
but proceeding hours
sun sets by nine
with wine
and a candle light flicker
things pick up the pace
proceeds quicker
cool winds breeze by
and now they shiver
feeling pulled down
like the current of a river
warmth and love recede
icy like winter
super sonic slipping by
don't remember dinner
wake in the morning
with the frame not the pictures
once so perfect
all that's left is splinters

Verse 2
solo, solitary
stuck in confinement
singled out saddened
something is rising
up in the mind of
this one survivor
love was a blinder
now is a blunder
loud like thunder
in cloud they're under
now do wonder
is it all just over
did it fall-bulldozer
to tall tipped over
automatic door closer
stopped locked
and the path is blocked
foundation is rocked
fine wines and scotch
left to sip so lonely
if only somebody
out there would throw the
life line and pull these
up like pulley
out of the lowly, desperate and
depressed, stressed, messed, vexed
pressed stretched
place of wrecked
hearts and minds
that people accept

lonely on my own but I'ma keep keeping on
lonely and alone but I'ma keep seeking home
lonely as I go yeah, I'ma be needing hope
loneliness will choke but not me, I will grow

Bridge (Marlene)
Ist das alles was übrig bleibt?
Ist es das was von uns übrig bleibt?
Ist es Liebe die uns vereint?
