Track Name: Chain and Ball
Chain and Ball (Christiane Spruit, 2018)

Like a bird in the cage
I am losing my faith
There’s no easy way out
Leaves me chained to the ground
Like a chain and a ball
like nothing at all
You fill the free in me.

I sleep near the door
I am chained to the floor
I feel home but bound
Like I am tied to the ground
I can hardly breath
I am in such a bad need
You fill the free in me.

You say that you need me
And I know that you do
But please don't you blame me
I don't want you to do
Like a chain and a ball
I don't need that at all
You fill the free in me.
Track Name: Ghost of Love
Ghost of Love (2018, Chris Spruit)

Keep the fire burning
kick some stone for a spark
hold the rope of my boat with one hand
and drag me out of the dark
if you tell me to call the demon
if you tell me to leave the gentle sea
I'll certainly leave
Evil mind
you sell my heart to a ghost of love tonight
of love tonight

just another word of pleasure
and a sweet longing night
in every drop of a precious moment
for the hell of a time
even I know you’re a sweet lie
And I will drown into these eyes
I don't know why
evil mind
you sell my heart to the ghost of love tonight
of love tonight

have a drink
to ease my mind
hit the clock
to slow down time
paint my picture
colourblind

Blue and evil
all the time
I cut the rope
I sell my pride
to the ghost of love tonight
Track Name: How Deep the River Runs
How deep the river runs (2018, Christiane Spruit)

V1) Fall so deep
into the silence
while I am falling asleep , to the sound and the beat of my heart
I fall so deep
hearing the sirens
trying to find my way back home, into my dreams

V2)At rivers deep
I sit down for crying
I am begging the water to come, taking my tears
between the truth and lies
trying to raise against the tide
how deep the river runs

Chorus:
Run run river run
in the old familiar ways
in the hope for me to stay
and in hope for a better day
run run run and I know the time will come
finding my way back home
no matter how deep the river runs

V3) I fall so deep
into the silence
while I am falling asleep , to the sound and the beat of my heart
At rivers deep
I sit down for crying
I am begging the water to come, and take my tears

Chorus

outro vamp: how deep the river runs
Track Name: No One Knows
No One Knows (2018, Christiane Spruit)

No one knows what it’s like
No one knows , when it will strike
No one knows, what we are heading for?

But they heed the battles call
born with back against the wall
Do they believe what they are fighting for?

CHORUS
Face the foe
in his name, he has been told
We all die without a whisper
and we take the battle’s bond
Behind white walls
someone said:” the white flag falls”
We all die without a whisper
We all die without a cause

We defend a point of view
what an ignorant thing to do
Do we believe believe what we are fighting for?

What will save us, me and you
What will save the children, too
we don’t know
What they’ll be fighting for?

CHORUS

BRIDGE
No one knows
No one knows
No one Knows
Track Name: In the Still of the Night
In the still of the night, 2018 Christiane Spruit

V1) when the night shines silver
and the dark takes the sky
when the band begins to gather
in the smoke and the light

Come on and dance with me
in the still of the night

V2) while the dogs are sleeping
one eye open wide
in the heat and in the gleaming
lonely cats come alive

Come on and dance with me
in the gleam of the light

Bridge:

V3) they will come
and they will go
some will say I love you
I'd love a gin, a drink on ice
but baby we both know

Solo

we walk the street of money
he's been talking for a while
little children and the struggle
hush now baby, survive

Outro vamp: Come on, hush now, survive
Track Name: Blue Line
Blue Line (2018, Christiane Spruit)

New day dawn
in the limelight
Sun will drag the gloom behind the blue line

Buildings high
at the skyline
waiting for the people to get online

Chorus:
I guess it's just a feeling in the city
People come and go and passing by
I have pondered for a while, but found no answer
Don't know do I feel alive

Busy Bees
they get the honey
Wear a decent dress to get the money

Camera eyes, mesmerize
a company that offers you free wi-fi

Chorus

Buildings high
scrape the skyline
Sun will drag the gloom behind the blue line

A neon sign
advertise
Selling you a dream in supersize

Chorus

Vamp: Don't know do I feel alive
Track Name: Traveller
TRAVELLER (2018, Christiane Spruit)
V1
a world outside my window
a world behind my eyes
I drive the unknown highway
drawn in by the lights
CHORUS
all right
check in within 1oo Miles
tonight
leaving no track and ride
into the presence of my mind
tonight
V2
you said I am always leaving
when it is getting rough
you know that I am a traveller
no I can't get enough
CHORUS
(check in within 200 miles)
V3
I never meant to hurt you
Never ment to to you harm
but I am just a visitor
there is no home in my heart
CHORUS
(check in within 300 miles)
Track Name: Right on Time
Right on Time (Chris Spruit, 2018)

1. V
right on time
pouring rain has fallen
from the mouth of a blood red sky
right on time
now that the thunder's spoken, after lightning broke the sky
after the heat has gone now
running veins of dusty lines
back into life back into the times of growing high
right,right, right on time

2. V
right on time
after the words been spoken
from the tongue of the lightning strike
right on time
my mother once has told me from the catcher in the rye
all my dreams are broken
by the greatest thief of times
Gin a body , meet a body
Coming thro' the grain
sweet child, sweet child need a body cry

Bridge/Solo

3. V
the wind sounds like a whisper through the alley of the grains
soothing rain has fallen
falling down to cleanse the sky
get back to life
back into the times of rising high
right, right, right, right on time
Track Name: What Could I Do
What could I do (Chris Spruit, 2017)

Verse1
Some times in heaven
Some nights in hell
dark clouds are raining on me
on a sunny day
kind of trouble sometimes
so dizzy in mind
in case I lose you
what could I do

Verse2
There is no religion
no kind of a spell
there’s nothing strong enough oh no
to heal that pain
if you would walk out the door
Leave me on the floor
in case I lose you
what else can I do

Bridge
My friends say I’m crazy
but they don’t understand
it would be driving me crazy
would driving me mad
if you would leave me
and walk out of that door
In THAT case , darling
leave morphine on the floor

Solo

Verse3
No I can’t stand it
If you run around
somewhere down the town NO NO
it’s bringing me down
kind of stupid sometimes
unfair and so blind
cause if you leave me
what could I do
Track Name: Take It Slow
Take it slow (David Bell, 2018)

V1:
You stand alone with your back to the wall and you think that no one cares
You have the weight of the world on your shoulders and your life, it goes nowhere

Chorus:
But don't you know
There are times you have to take it slow

V2:
Thinking back, the times were good, how did things go so wrong
So much water under the bridge, makes it hard to sing your song

Chorus X2

V3:
Try and try, taking your time, taking one day at a time
Step by step, and one by one you will find the perfect rhyme

Chorus
Track Name: These Days
These Days (2018, Christiane Spruit)

V1:
You know my love
life is on the run
rainy days
they may come
life is like a breeze
and we both know
these days to come

V2:
All that we've been through
me and you
when the wind blew hard
did we fall apart?
we can make a stand
but we both know
these days to come

V3:
All these years my love
we won and lost
but most of all
we paid the cost
we've cried some tears
no need to fear
these days to come

Solo
Bridge:
I know nothing that I wouldn't do for you
there is no doubt in my mind
no doubt to be finding you
Love is in me,
love is in you

V4 (repeat V1):
You know my love
life is on the run
rainy days
they may come
love is like a breeze
and we both know
these days to come
Track Name: Life Ain't a Cookie Jar
Life ain't a Cookie Jar (2018, Christiane Spruit)


Life won't treat you kind 2x
tossing and turning and cry
howling like wind in the chimes
Life won't treat you kind
No matter how you pray
turn around or walk away
Life won't treat you kind

Heaven, heaven can wait
Just let me get something straight
Life ain't a cookie jar
just getting drunk in a bar
heaven won't get that far
no matter who you blame
it is always the one and the same
heaven wont get that far

Solo

down down down
down to myself
the key of life, lies top of the shelf
next to the open jar
no matter who you are
Life ain't a cookie jar
(guitar)
Life ain't a cookie jar
Track Name: How Can You Talk
How can you talk (Christiane Spruit, 2018)

V1:
You said you know me
if you ever had to know me
how can you talk
how can you talk like this at all

V2:
When you meet me
eye to eye
you are smiling in a way
so how can you make up all these lies.

V3:
when you told me
that it was over
Did you ever hear a bad word
all I could do is, say good bye

Bridge:

You were the one who has gone and all came undone
saying that she will be the one
who will bring back the sun
so you left, went and gone
and now telling That I was the one

V4:
You ought to know me
and if you ever had to know me
do you believe and get some relief,
by repeating all these lies
