Verse 1 where is all the joy gone where's all the trust where has all my hope gone turning to dust I am trying to find out trying to find another way out of misery oh lord I am not willing oh lord it is killing something deep down in me Verse2 where is all my faith gone where's all the luck where has all the tears fall falling into dust I am trying to find out trying to find another way out of agony oh lord I am not willing oh lord it is killing something deep down in me Middle 8 Times to come, we'll have choose eye for eye, hell is breaking loose what love denies we look straight into devils eyes and he‘s got no good news for you Solo Verse3 Where is all love gone Where all the pain has all the blood left yet another stain and we are trying to bail out trying to buy another way out tragedy oh lord we are not willing oh lord it is killing something deep down in me

Ghost Town 04:02
Ghost Town (2017, Chris Spruit) Waiting for the train to come to take me for the ride heading to a place down town into the city life leave the dusty road behind me misreading all the signs good night hometown next stop ghost town out I'll be gone so many miles until the day is done passing trains they have no name are figures of the game Riding horses made of steel will Rock me into sleep with all the towns and ghostly clouds in me (Chorus A) Golden fields hot summers glow behind the strangers eyes promise sings the Hummingbird I'll take you to the sky Begging for the train to stop to wake me for a while waving all the clouds behind into a clear blue sky stranger faces offer me a ticket for a ride leaving the ghost town bring me safe home tonight Solo (Chorus B) Golden fields hot summers glow behind the strangers eyes Travelling to the promised land A ticket for a ride Outro vamp

MAN IN THE MOON (lyrics by Christiane Spruit, 2017) V1 In the still of the city lies Like a baby you're sleeping tight And the face of the moon above is spying V2 And it seems he is calling your name and I feel my limbs getting lame and the face in the moon above keeps smiling CHORUS: Man in the moon Man in the moon can't get no sleep and I wake up too soon Man in the Moon Man in the moon is there a way to come over to you V3 We Collecting the stars above and the way will be long enough be aware to be part of what is fading V4 and the new day is dawning weak and the hope is arising steep they who dare, staying brave in me are not dying Bridge In the glow of light we are expecting to see deamons fly But the angels are guiding the night into the the moonlit sky And the eye of the sky maybe asking me why am I expecting to have all of the time tonight CHORUS: Man in the moon Man in the moon can't get no sleep and I wake up too soon Man in the Moon Man in the moon is there a way to come over to you

Counting hours (Chris Spruit, 2017) The light of the day is fading out Melting down within the heat the life of this town The girls and boys in the neighbourhood Will get the call to run back home before the nightly curtain falls Chorus: Get home soon when the Night comes down Head back home when the sun gets low Find me home counting hours down the curbstone Leave a light on for you on the window sill When the night gets still you know I will Find me home counting hours down the curbstone The woman next door she turns the radio on The thin white duke was a wonderful bloke it is my favourite song For my love maybe he sings to me Wild is the wind darling, cling to me Like the leaf to the trees Chorus Bridge: There were times in life, you know that I walked through Every open door to see the dark side of the moon every time from now I’ll spend with you take me further on to see my colours shine on you Guitar solo Chorus Outro

99 Degrees 03:55
99 Degrees (2017, Christiane Spruit) rising up falling slow there's a certain golden glow nearly there, to touch the sky praying, down on my knees only 99 degrees but it is burning like a fever what goes up yes I know must come down for all below it’s worth trying to fly much higher take a force of the blow I am RIDING On A RAINBOW THROUGH THE SKYLINE Tears may fall FROM YOUR HAND vanish in upon the land won’t let loose I'm falling for you call from grace warm embrace holds me in a higher space to behold your loving face praying, down on my knees only 99 degrees but it is burning like a fever. what goes up yes I know must come down for all below it’s worth trying to fly much higher take a force of the blow I am RIDING On A RAINBOW THROUGH THE SKYLINE Tears may fall FROM YOUR HAND vanish in upon the land won’t let loose I'm falling for you

Paperback 04:46
PAPERBACK (lyrics by Chris Spruit, 2017) (V1) Taking the road, I never walked into the silence I did not talk leads me to a crossroad Heard a song la da di la da di lada dia and I knew I’ve heard it before (V2) And in the sky, I heard that noise way in the distance, I had no choise leads me to a garden Birds in the sky la da di la da di Lullaby and I knew I’ve been here before CHORUS: And a road winds back and my ink turns black running down the paperback what a great time dried in the eyes of a child- hood lies deep down, inside Solo (V3) Recalling a word, I never quote writing a sentence, I never wrote standing at the crossroad a world, build blind, in defence of a broken mind But it makes no difference. CHORUS: And the road winds back and my ink turns black running down the paperback what a great time dried in the eyes of a child- hood lies deep down, inside Solo, outro vamp

Take it easy on me (2017, Chris Spruit) 1 Verse Close to the edge when the bad times come to crash I am tapping at the mask plead for guilty, may I ask Do I have to change the frame change the rules in a running game but I know it ain't the same well, it is hard for me to claim Chorus Take it easy on me Love don't treat me bad, this way Can you call out my real name? But I know it ain't the same Take it easy on me When I do not act decently some times begging some times steal Take it easy on me 2 Verse I do fall that easily feeling cold in the burning heat and the taste seems bittersweet close the door I trick and treat Do I have to take the blame making rules I can't explain but I know it ain't the same being a pawn in a waiting game Chorus Take it easy on me Love don't treat me bad, this way Can you call out my real name? But I know it ain't the same Take it easy on me When I do not act decently some times begging some times steal Leave a fortune, spin the wheel

The Bullet 03:46
The Bullet (2017, Chris Spruit) Burning in a fever I got caught out in the rain Maybe I'm too eager a bullet in my vein I can’t say it is going to save me but I swear it takes the blues I am burning for you baby yeah, take the bullet when I lose Dancing at the border of a dry and wasted land Burning down the bridges as I know you understand How to tame the running horses all the good and all the bad I rely on you my baby yeah, hide the bullet in your hand Bridge "I rely on you" improv I am burning for you baby it is keeping me alive Maybe I'm too eager but life is not that kind I am burning for you baby and I know it takes the blues The bullet in my vein take it while I lose

Lift me up 02:22
LIFT ME UP (by Chris Spruit, 2017) Monday is not kind and I get up in a haze Much too late to get things straight what shall I wear running up and downstairs Oh come on, what is wrong with my hair But You lift me up my darling you lift me up you lift me up my darling like the sweet black coffee in my morning cup Won’t catch the bus, oh what a mess, what a fuss The world is in such a bad state America has got a monkey typing twitter to hell my ear is ringing a bell But You lift me up my darling you lift me up you lift me up my darling like the sweet black coffee in my morning cup Morning is not kind and I woke up in a maze tell me please, so where are the keys The car broke down I've got no shoes on my feet look at this, I'm down on the street But You lift me up my darling you lift me up you lift me up my darling like the sweet black coffee in my morning cup sweet sugar sweet sweet sugar lift me up like the sweet black coffee in my morning cup
