Didn´t You Say ?

music: Simone Kopmajer / lyrics: Karolin Tuerk 2007     album: "Didn´t You Say

Didn’t you say

You’d take me down to Mexico,

San Antonio

Or over to the Sunshine State?

 

Didn’t you say

You’d take me where the wild geese go,

To Ontario

And on to Niagara Falls?

 

North or south

Doesn’t really matter

Just as long

As we can be together

-       You and I –

-       Baby, we can reach the sky -

 

Deep inside

I think I’ve known it all along

And I wasn’t wrong

To say, “You are all talk”.

 

LUCKY MOJO

music: S. Kopmajer / lyrics: K. Tuerk  2010                            album: "The Best In You"

 

I should get myself a good luck charm,

It won't hurt, won't do no harm,

Yes, a good luck charm is what I need.

 

If I meet the man that I adore,

He will love me, that's for sure,

If I tell my lucky Mojo what to do:

 

And I go,

"Ooh-ooh, make him love me,

Ooh-ooh, would you please make him see,

He's the one for me."

 

Some may say that he's a perfect freak,

- Just one look and my knees go weak -

He's the man that really blows my mind.

 

Call me ridiculous, call me insane,

I will love him just the same,

And then I hear him  whisper in my ear:

 

And he goes,

"Ooh-ooh, say you love me,

Ooh-ooh, you're as sweet as can be,

You´re the one for me!                   You're the one for me."

 

All The Words Are Gone 

music & lyrics: S. Kopmajer  2012                                   album: "The Best In you"

I´m wishing you a true love

I´m wishing you the best

I wanna say I´ll miss you

Our love was meant to last

(but) – All the words are gone

           -  All the words are gone

 

(Yes) All my life I´ve waited

For you to pass my way

And now that I do love you

You are not here to stay

(now) – All the words are gone

             -  All the words are gone

 

You say it´s better

To leave than to suffer

You say it´s better

To leave if you don´t care

 

OUT HERE IN THE BLUE

WHERE I´M STILL LOVING YOU

IN MY HEART THERE´LL BE

-   ALWAYS BE - A LITTLE PLACE

-   FOR YOU AND ME

 

I can´t belive it´s over

With nothing left to say

I see our smiling faces

The games we used to play

(but)   - All the words are gone

             - All the words are gone  

       

Two Love Birds

music: F. Liszt / lyrics: Karolin Tuerk 2011                            album: "New Romance"

Head over heels

We have fallen in love,

Our little affair

Has me walking on air.

 

Love me or leave me,

But never deceive me:

Two love birds like us

Are beyond all compare.

 

Pillows of satin,

Late brunch in Manhattan,

Your lips and champagne 

Almost drive me insane.

 

Walks in the park and then

Tea after dark

In a love nest with you 

And outside only rain.

 

The bells all around - they are ringin'

A bell in my head - it is singin'

The bells in my heart, they go:

Ding-dong, ding-dong,

Ding-dong, ding-dong,

Ding-dong, ding-dong-ding.

Forgetting to Breathe

music: S.Kopmajer / lyrics: Karolin Tuerk 2008                      album: "Didn´t You Say"

Just imagine , we could fly         

Drawing circles in the cloudless sky –

Floating high above the water‘s edge 

- holding our breath

 

Just imagine, we could dive down deep-

To the bottom of the clear, blue sea –

Fading in and out of blues and greens 

- forgetting to breathe.

      To think of you –

      To send my thoughts to you –

 Makes me feel close to you.

 

Watching kites go up ever so high –

Watching birds fly in the autumn sky –

Singing love songs out of the blue –

I‘m thinking of you

 

Singing love songs just wouldn‘t do –

I‘m thinking of you

 

SHOES

music & lyrics: S. Kopmajer  2010                                         album: "The Best In You"

These are my shoes -

They´ve been to places

From Paris to Rome.

As I´ve been their star

They have carried me so far.

They're my favorite pair,

Yes, I know that you don´t care.

These are my shoes -

Ready to use

When I get the blues.    

 

These are my shoes -

Messy and used,

But still I don´t care.

Walking me through

The ups and downs with you.

They are not fancy,

but the story´s all so true.

These are my shoes -

Ready to use

When I get the blues.

 

Whenever I feel blue ,

I fall for buying a shoe -

And I´m no longer sad,

´Cause shoes they make me glad.

 

These are my shoes -

I´m not amused

When they walk me home.

After dancing all night

Celebrating felt so right.

But they know me well,

They are keeping me from hell.

These are my shoes,

Ready to use

when I get the blues.

 

The Best In You

music: S. Kopmajer / lyrics: K. Tuerk 2010                album: "The Best In You"

 

I always see the best in you

- Even things  you cannot see -

I hear the words you cannot say

I feel your loving touch when you're away.

 

And there's a place in space and time

That's neither past nor yet to come

It's here and there and everywhere

It's where we dare to lay our souls out bare

  

And I never knew

My eyes could see through

Every little cloud that's in the way

And I never knew

My eyes could see your heart.

 

I always see the best in you

- Even things you cannot see -

I hear the words you cannot say,

I feel your loving touch when you're away

 

Come Dance With Me

music: F. Chopin / lyrics: Karolin Tuerk  2011                album: "New Romance"

Come, dance with me,

For you know

I want to hold you

Close, so close to me,

For you know

I want to feel you.

 

And then the world outside is gone

- We're on our own -

Won't you come here, my darling,

And dance with me,

Real slow,

Even though

It's all over?

 

Maybe it's better to say that it's over

As I know you'll be

Gone - really gone -

 - The lights down low -

 - Dancing slow.
