Sadly I can't find a video link, but I LOVE Spirit in You by Heather Nova... it's off Glow Stars.  My husband loves her and the first time I heard it we'd been together about a month and we were laying on his bed talking in the dark and that song came on, at which point we both got quiet and I told him that that was how I felt about him :)  Her voice is so ethereal...

"Spirit In You"

Under your skin there's something beckoning;
There's something that makes me believe in you.
Behind your eyes, that's where the sacred lies;
You know I need to get through.

Oh here I go again.
Through the undergrowth again;
Feel the earth move, the planets spin
But I can't get through.

It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
That I want to find.

I've seen your face, the one your mother made.
Now let me see what makes you really move.
I know you're scared, I know it's tender there,
Just let me closer let me get through.

Oh here I go again,
Through the undergrowth again,
Feel the earth move, the planets spin
But I can't get through.

It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
That I want to find.

And when you make me feel
When you make me bleed,
My lucky stars fall down on me.
You know I need to know you,
I need to see,
I need to take ahold of what's underneath.
So close your eyes, unlock your mind,
Throw off the fear, and let us fly.

Oh here I go again,
Through the undergrowth again;
Feel the earth move, the planets spin,
But I can't get through.

It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
It's the spirit in you,
That I want to find.

Well, right now I'm listening Blitzkrieg, by Deathstars. I'm trying so hard to replicate the vocals, but my voice is just too weak. Still, I can always learn, and I'm getting better.

I'm not sure where I should post this, because I'm not really listening to it, but it is stuck in my head. A so far unfinished song that I wrote:

Makes Me Weak, Ignaddio

Intro
(Spoken)
Vamp: Thank you for seeing me, doctor
Doctor: Not a problem. Describe the nature of your problem.
Vamp: I can't leave my house during the day; I feel this terrible sensation every time I try, like I'm going to perish if I do. And, at Night, I get this horrible hunger that can only be sated by human blood.
Doctor: That is horrible.
Vamp: That's not the half of it.

Chorus

Every time I see this woman
Dressed in black it makes me weak, it makes me weak.
Makes me weeee-eak.

When I see'er I want to talk
When I talk I want to hold
When I hold I want to love, I want to love.
I want to luhhh-ove!

The wicked way she wears her hair
I want to smell I want to touch I want to snare
Her with my arms
She's in my Ahh-arms!

Sometime I think she's playing coy
Or that she has another boy
And she's just playing with my heart
But I know she's not a tart, she's not a tart.
She's rather smahhh-art!

(Guitars roll in, Vamp sings enthusiastically:
I think I luh-uh-ove myyyy Lay-dyinblack.)

Chorus

She's got
Alabaster skin
Raven black hair
A sense of style to die for
And a smile so wicked

I wanna
See'er in the evenin'
Love'er every night
Take 'er in-to my coffin
And wait out the light

That's about where I stopped. Constructive criticism is welcome, but I don't want to derail this thread. Perhaps in a PM?

"Ghost In This House"
Allison Krauss

I don't pick up the mail
I don't pick up the phone
I don't answer the door
I'd just as soon be alone
I don't keep this place up
I just keep the lights down
I don't live in these rooms
I just rattle around

I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm just a shadow upon these walls
As quietly as a mouse I haunt these halls
I'm just a whisper of smoke
I'm all that's left of two hearts on fire
That once burned out of control
You took my body and soul
I'm just a ghost in this house

I don't care if it rains
I don't care if it's clear
I don't mind staying in
There's another ghost here
He sits down in your chair
And he shines with your light
And he lays down his head
On your pillow at night

I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm just a shadow upon these walls
I'm living proof of the damage
Heartbreak does
I'm just a whisper of smoke
I'm all that's left of two hearts on fire
That once burned out of control
You took my body and soul
I'm just a ghost in this house
That once burned out of control
You took my body and soul
I'm just a ghost in this house


Because it's almost, almost depressing enough...

Within Temptation - The truth beneath the Rose

For me it's a story about finding an inner balance between devotion and love of your religion, higher power. It's a power of strength without your faith, for obviously the one whom is singing the song has definately lost her faith. Lost her strength, lost whatever she believed in would justify the bloodshed she has caused in her day.

Give me strength to face the truth, the doubt within my soul
No longer I can justify the bloodshed in his name
Is it a sin to seek the truth, the truth beneath the rose?
Pray with me so I will find the gate to Heaven's door

I believed it would justify the means
It had a hold over me

Blinded to see the cruelty of the beast
It is the darker side of me
The veil of my dreams deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
Forgive me my sins

Pray for me cause I have lost my faith in holy wars
Is paradise denied to me cause I can't take no more
Has darkness taken over me, consumed my mortal soul
All my virtues sacrificed, can Heaven be so cruel?

I believed it would justify the means
It had a hold over me

Blinded to see the cruelty of the beast
It is the darker side of me
The veil of my dreams deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
Forgive me my sins

I'm hoping, I'm praying
I won't get lost between two worlds
For all I have seen the truth lies in between
Give me the strength to face the wrong that I have done
Now that I know the darkest side of me

How can blood be our salvation
And justify the pain that we have caused throughout the times
Will I learn what's truly sacred?
Will I redeem my soul, will truth set me free?

Blinded to see the cruelty of the beast
It is the darker side of me
The veil of my dreams deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
Forgive me my sins

Right now, the only song I can think of is the ending theme to the greatest game noone expected to be as good as it is: Portal. It really doesn't make sense unless you play the game, but I'm sure anyone familiar with it knows why it's so awesome.The cake is a lie.

*grins and giggles* This was a life before life... hehe..


I love the way you look at me
I feel the pain you place inside
Lock me up inside ya dirty cage
While Im alone inside my mind

I like to teach you all the rules
Id get to see them set in stone
I like it when you chain me to the bed
There ya secrets never shone

[chorus]
I need to feel you
You need to feel me
I cant control you
Youre not the one for me, no

I cant control you
You cant control me
I need to feel you
So whys it involve

I love the way you rape my skin
I feel the hate you place inside
I need to get your voice out of my head
Cause Im the guy youll never find

Im faking all of the rules
Theres no expressions on your face
Im hoping some day you will let me go
Release me from my dirty cage

[chorus]
I need to feel you
You need to feel me
I cant control you
Youre not the one for me, no

I cant control you
You cant control me
I need to feel you
So whys it involve...you and me..

[repeat 4x]
I love the way you look at me
I love the way you smack my ass
I love the dirty things you do
I have control of you

[chorus]
I need to feel you
You need to feel me
I cant control you
Youre not the one for me, no

I cant control you
You cant control me
I need to feel you
So whys it involve you and me..

It's been one hell of a rough night here.
With a combination of low pressure pushing high pressure down from the north, in turn causing a tidal wave to force it's way down through the north sea, along with one hell of a storm and spring tides, we had braced ourselves for the worst.

Strangely has been and still is, on standby, incase he was needed, for either rescue or evacuation and even though the sun id doing it's best to break through, it's still pretty rough.

We woke this morning to flooded roads and chaos.
Fortunately for us, on this part of the coast, we have managed to bare the brunt of the storm with only the minimum of homes evacuated and areas flooded where, though it is an inconvenience, has not caused too much damage.
Unfortunately not so further down.
Great Yarmouth have had to evacuate hundreds of homes, shelters and hospitals and have adviced many others to either stay with relatives or go to a rest centre and areas of Suffolk are just as bad.

So I'm sat here, checking the forcasts, looking at live cam pictures and switch the music on, this is what popped up as the first song.....

This song means so many things and on so many levels, however today, it just sums up the weather.

(And I'm sorry, I can't find a link anywhere for you to listen to....)



Cockney Rebel - Sling It

The ship was sailing through a Tempest of fear
There was lightning and explosions galore
And the waves came whooshing and crashing and boy!
It was panic as we swam for the shore
There were ladies and babies being trampled to hell
Where the flames flickered happy and sad
And the honey-coloured moon was bouncing around
He was laughing, saying: "Dear, this is mad!!!"
Oh, come on!
Oh, come on!
Oh, come on! let's sling it and do it again!"

Then a message flashed in the sky by the sun:
"Be careful, this is only a game!
If you believe what you see, you'll be rewarded by me
And be drowned or burned - it's all the same!"
Oh the fear in our hearts was diminished at once
We began to restore love and peace
And though the ship had gone down, there was a moral we found:
"If this is life, then it's hard to believe!"

"Oh, come on!
Oh, come on!
Oh, come on! Let's sling it and do it again!"

"Oh, come on!
Oh, come on!
Oh, come on! Let's sling it and do it again!"

(And do it in time this time boys)

By Myself, by Linkin Park.


The lyrics really speak... ecspecially since my school life was kinda rocky. This song just seems to go perfectly with the feelings of not being able to overcome something, but not wanting to lay down and let that something win. Hiding behind something your not to get by on the outside, but hating yourself on the inside for it.


http://www.lyrics.com/lyric.php?id=21267

Really, watch it. It speaks.




By Myself

What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
Do I hide my pride / from these bad dreams
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I / sit here and try to stand it?
Or do I / try to catch them red - handed?
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?
Because I canít hold on / when Iím stretched so thin
I make the right moves but Iím lost within
I put on my daily faÁade but then
I just end up getting hurt again

by myself [myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

[myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

I canít hold on
To what I want when Iím stretched so thin
Itís all too much to take in
I canít hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I
Turn my back Iím defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on / then theyíll
Take from me Ďtill everything is gone
If I let them go Iíll be outdone
But if I try to catch them Iíll be outrun
If Iím killed by the questions like a cancer
Then Iíll be buried in the silence of the answer

[by myself]
[myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself
[myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

I canít hold on
To what I want when Iím stretched so thin
Itís all too much to take in
I canít hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

How do you think / Iíve lost so much
Iím so afraid / Iím out of touch
How do you expect / I will know what to do
When all I know / Is what you tell me to
Donít you (know)
I canít tell you how to make it (go)
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
I canít seem to convince myself (why)
Iím stuck on the outside

How do you think / Iíve lost so much
Iím so afraid / Iím out of touch
How do you expect / I will know what to do
When all I know / Is what you tell me to
Donít you (know)
I canít tell you how to make it (go)
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
I canít seem to convince myself (why)
Iím stuck on the outside

I canít hold on
To what I want when Iím stretched so thin

I have a passion for songs that tell a story, and this is one that never fails to bring me to tears. I treasure and adore it; I never have a playlist now that doesn't include it. It happened to be the first one that popped up for me this morning, and I want to share.

The Lighthouse's Tale by Nickel Creek

I am a lighthouse, worn by the weather and the waves.
I keep my lamp lit, to warn the sailors on their way.
I'll tell a story, paint you a picture from my past.
I was so happy, but joy in this life seldom lasts.

I had a keeper, he helped me warn the ships at sea.
We had grown closer, 'till his joy meant everything to me.
And he was to marry, a girl who shone with beauty and light.
And they loved each other, and with me watched the sunsets into night.

[Chorus:]
And the waves crashing around me, the sand slips out to sea.
And the winds that blow remind me, of what has been, and what can never be.

She'd had to leave us, my keeper he prayed for a safe return.
But when the night came, the weather to a raging storm had turned.
He watched her ship fight, but in vain against the wild and terrible wave.
In me so helpless, as dashed against the rock she met her end.

[Chorus]

Then on the next day, my keeper found her washed up on the SHORE.
He kissed her cold face, that they'd be together soon he'd swore.
I saw him crying, watched as he buried her in the sand.
And then he climbed my tower, and off of the edge of me he ran.

[Chorus]

I am a lighthouse, worn by the weather and the waves.
And though I am empty, I still warn the sailors on their way.

Do we really need to have a reason to listen to Monty Python?
Not really, but we had to hunt through our play list just to find it, because we just wanted to....*grins*



Brave Sir Robin

Bravely bold Sir Robin rode forth from Camelot
He was not afraid to die, O brave Sir Robin
He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin
He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp
Or to have his eyes gouged out and his elbows broken
To have his kneecaps split and his body burned away
And all his limbs hacked and mangled, brave Sir Robin
His head smashed in and his heart cut out
And his liver removed and his bowels unplugged
And his nostrils raped and his bottom burnt off and his penis...
He is brave Sir Robin,
Brave Sir Robin who...
To fight and...............
Brave Sir Robin ran away
Bravely, ran away...away...
When danger reared its ugly head
He bravely turned his tail and fled
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
And gallantly he chickened out
Bravely talking to his feet
He beat a very brave retreat
Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin

Hades & Persephone, by Anais Mitchell, is written as a conversation between the reluctant couple of Greek mythology.

Hades & Persephone

PERSEPHONE
Hades, my husband, Hades, my light
Hades, my darkness
if you had heard how he sang tonight
you'd pity poor Orpheus!

all of his sorrow won't fit in his chest
it just burns like a fire in the pit of his chest
and his heart is a bird on a spit in his chest
how long, how long, how long?

HADES
how long? just as long as Hades is king
nothing comes of wishing on stars
nothing comes of the songs people sing
however sorry they are

give them a piece and they'll take it all
show them the crack and they'll tear down the wall
lend them an ear and the kingdom will fall
the kingdom will fall for a song

PERSEPHONE
what does he care for the logic of kings?
the laws of your underworld?
it is only for love that he sings!
he sings for the love of a girl

HADES
you and your pity don't fit in my bed
you just burn like a fire in the pit of my bed
and I turn like a bird on a spit in my bed
how long, how long, how long?

PERSEPHONE
how long? just as long as I am your wife
it's true the earth must die
but then the earth comes back to life
and the sun just goes on rising

BOTH
and how does the sun even fit in the sky?
it just burns like a fire in the pit of the sky
and the earth is a bird on a spit in the sky
how long, how long, how long?

Gorcecki by Lamb

This is the most beautiful song i have ever heard.  the first time i hear it was one sunday morning after a long night of partying, the DJ put it on just as the sun began to peek over the horizon and i have spent the rest of my life trying to remember that this is the sound and feeling of being in love.  today, I am full of wonder, divided by borders of barbed wire that tear at my heart with brilliance and beauty and hurt and pain.  Today i am made of light and tears and hurt and hope - and it is the hope that hurts more, the maps and legends of of my heart tug at me and set me free to fall from the greatest heights i can imagine and inspires me to spend just on more day staring down at the cruel ocean below.

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
for I've never known completeness
like being here
wrapped in the warmth of you
loving every breath of you
still my heart this moment
oh it might burst

could we stay right here
till the end of time until the earth stops turning
wanna love you until the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for

all this time I've loved you
and never known your face
all this time I've missed you
and searched this human race
here is true peace
here my heart knows calm
safe in your soul
bathed in your sighs
wanna stay right here
till the end of time
till the earth stops turning
gonna love you until the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for

the one I've waited for

all I've known
all I've done
all I've felt was leading to this
all I've known
all I've done
all I've felt was leading to this

wanna stay right here
till the end of time till the earth stops turning
gonna love you till the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for

the one I've waited for
the one I've waited for

wanna stay right here
till the end of time 'till the earth stops turning
gonna love you till the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for

the one I've waited for
the one I've waited for

Ok...So I'm sat here, in pain and doped up to the eyeballs and yes...maudling.
This song flashed into my head and I haven't heard it in years, so we've hunted it down and put it on our play list.

It's a song about life and about living it, but it is also one of the most beautiful folk rock ballads ever.
Moral of the story?
Live your life, enjoy it, go out and do stuff.
So you lot..yes you young'ns...stop living the work/home/work/home/work thing, get out and enjoy yourselves while you can.
We don't know what's gonna happen tomorrow, if I hadn't done all the stuff I had, before I'd become ill, then I would have saved my money,had a lovely home, lovely things, but bugger all else.....
Life is for living, not for waiting 'until'...so listen to this song, (it's a really good version for a song released in 1971) and then sod off out and find something exciting to do.....



"Life Is A Long Song" - Jethro Tull



When you're falling awake and you take stock of the new day,
and you hear your voice croak as you choke on what you need to say,
well, don't you fret, don't you fear,
I will give you good cheer.

Life's a long song.
Life's a long song.
Life's a long song.

If you wait then your plate I will fill.

As the verses unfold and your soul suffers the long day,
and the twelve o'clock gloom spins the room,
you struggle on your way.
Well, don't you sigh, don't you cry,
lick the dust from your eye.

Life's a long song.
Life's a long song.
Life's a long song.

We will meet in the sweet light of dawn.

As the Baker Street train spills your pain all over your new dress,
and the symphony sounds underground put you under duress,
well don't you squeal as the heel grinds you under the wheel.

Life's a long song.
Life's a long song.
Life's a long song.

But the tune ends too soon for us all.

This is a song that appeals to me for various reasons. 'Beautiful Day' by The Levellers
What those reasons are will be obvious to those who know me :)

What a beautiful day (hey hey)
I'm the king of all time
And nothing is impossible
In my all powerful mind

Was on the fifth of November, when time it went back
Some say that's impossible, but you and I would never look back
And wasn't it incredible, so beautiful and above all
Just to see the fuse get lit this time
To light a real bonfire, for all time

And what a beautiful day (hey hey)
I'm the king of all time
And nothing is impossible
In my all powerful mind

I was drinking in my night club
It felt good to be back
When Hepburn said "I love you"
And Flyn said, "Make mine a double, Jack"

Then we planned the revolution
To make things better for all time
And when the barman said "That's crazy"
And ordered up a bottle of wine

What a beautiful day (hey hey)
I'm the king of all time
And nothing is impossible
In my all powerful mind

In there on the big screen, every night I've seen
The way all things could be
For me, for me, for me, for me

The news broke after midnight,
That we pulled the temples down without a sound
But the generals they were hiding out
And the ministers, Well! They'd all gone to ground

Wealth re-distribution, became the new solution
So I got a paper bag, but you got the one with all the holes

What a beautiful day (hey hey)
I'm the king of all time
And nothing is impossible
In my all powerful mind

Oh yeah, nothing is impossible
In my own powerful mind

That's because nothing is impossible
In my own powerful mind

I have always called this 'The Stalker's song', it's disturbing just listening to it, even though the words are abiguous, it has a nasty little undertone to the words and the music.
I'm listening to it now, because it's a song I really like and we lost it. Not being a very 'popular' song and by a not so 'mainstream' band, it's been hard to find again and it took Strangely rather a long time to track it down again....

OK.....so, you know I've just said the song was a little disturbing?
Well.....I've tracked down the actual video that went with the song...and with the video, well....it's a lot disturbing...

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you,

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you,
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you,
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you,
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you.

I only just met you before
But I can't understand you don't want me more
You maybe think I'm too smart and weird,
But that should only make you want to hear that...

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you,
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you,
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you,
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you,

You make me feel really unsure,
But that should just make you feel secure.
Although we've only known each other a bit
Already I can't sleep at night and I feel like shit.
That's right.

Antidote time.....
Another Dandy Warhole song, just to show you that we don't listen to all that is dark and gruesome....

It's a sad little song, but the video has a lovely little story to tell....



http://uk.


A long time ago, we used to be friends
But I haven't thought of you lately at all
If ever again, a greeting I send to you,
Short and sweet to the soul I intend.

A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh

Come on now, honey,
Bring it on, bring it on, yeah.
Just remember me when you're good to go
Come on now, sugar,
Bring it on, bring it on, yeah.
Just remember me when.

It's something I said, or someone I know.
Or you called me up, maybe I wasn't home.
Now everybody needs some time,
And everybody knows
The rest of it's fine
And everybody knows that.

Come on now, sugar,
Bring it on, bring it on, yeah.
Just remember me when you're good to go
Come on now, honey,
Bring it on, bring it on, yeah.
Just remember me when.

We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends, hey hey

A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh

A long time ago, we used to be friends
But I haven't thought of you lately at all
If ever again, a greeting I send to you,
Short and sweet to the soul I intend.

We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends,
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh

Steve Vai - For The Love Of God

No lyrics, electric guitar instrumental from an excellent guitar player...

Just...  Excellent...  I cannot be depressed, or upset listening to this song...  This is what I play when stress is getting me down, it's calming, soothing...  An antidote for what ails me...

I'm listening to Bubbly, by Colbie Caillat. She says it's about the feelings you get at the beginning of a relationship that gives you butterflies in your stomach. It's really apt, because that's just how the song makes me feel.

I'll come back when I'm on a proper machine instead of my mobile, to provide lyrics and a listening link in an edit.

Edit:



V1: I've been awake for a while now
you've got me feelin like a child now
cause every time I see your bubbly face
I get the tinglies in a silly place

C: It starts in my toes
and I crinkle my nose
where ever it goes I always know
that you make me smile
please stay for a while now
just take your time
where ever you go

V2: The rain is fallin on my window pane
but we are hidin in a safer place
under covers stayin safe and warm
you give me feelins that I adore

C: It starts in my toes
make me crinkle my nose
where ever it goes
i always know
that you make me smile
please stay for a while now
just take your time
where ever you go

B: What am I gonna say
when you make me feel this way
I just........mmmmmm

C: It starts in my toes
make me crinkle my nose
where ever it goes
i always know
that you make me smile
please stay for a while now
just take your time
where ever you go

V3: I've been asleep for a while now
You tucked me in just like a child now
Cause every time you hold me in your arms
I'm comfortable enough to feel your warmth

C: It starts in my soul
And I lose all control
When you kiss my nose
The feelin shows
Cause you make me smile
Baby just take your time now
Holdin me tight

Where ever, where ever, where ever you go
Where ever, where ever, where ever you go
Where ever you go, I'll always know
Cause you make me smile here, just for a while

I'm listening to the 80s German version (the original) of 99 Luftballons.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9whehyybLqU

I've been listening to this song alot the last two days. I'm celebrating having moved and having my own seperate space I can just play music loudly in without disturbing anyone (plus access to the internet again).

It's not the lyrics that make me love this song since I don't really speak much German at all (and listening to the English translation just seems cheap and degrading. If I want the song to be in a language I understand it's up to me to learn German, not find a translation).

Anyway, it's the energy I love about this song. 80's power chords and rock ballads just get me in the mood to bounce around.

Nena - 99 Luftballons Lyrics

Hast Du etwas Zeit fuer mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied fuer Dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Denkst Du vielleicht grad' an mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied fuer Dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Und dass sowas von sowas kommt

99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man fuer UFOs aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
'ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher
Alarm zu geben, wenn's so waer
Dabei war'n da am Horizont
Nur 99 Luftballons

99 Duesenflieger
Jeder war ein grosser Krieger
Hielten sich fuer Captain Kirk
Das gab ein grosses Feuerwerk
Die Nachbarn haben nichts gerafft
Und fuehlten sich gleich angemacht
Dabei schoss man am Horizont
Auf 99 Luftballons

99 Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich fuer schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer haette das gedacht
Dass es einmal soweit kommt
Wegen 99 Luftballons

99 Jahre Krieg
Liessen keinen Platz fuer Sieger
Kriegsminister gibt's nicht mehr
Und auch keine Duesenflieger
Heute zieh ich meine Runden
Seh' die Welt in Truemmern liegen
Hab' 'nen Luftballon gefunden
Denk' an Dich und lass' ihn fliegen
