Track Name: Deep down in me
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
Track Name: Ghost Town
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
Track Name: Man in the Moon
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
Track Name: Counting Hours
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
Track Name: 99 Degrees
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
Track Name: Paperback
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
Track Name: Take it easy on me
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
Track Name: Armed Angels
Armed Angels (2017, Christiane Spruit)

1.V
Don’t cry my heart
no world will fall apart
don’t cry my sky
be diamonds in my eyes
Letting lose
one picture of you
falling for two

CHORUS
Me, and my wing high
into the night
into the darkness of the sky
me
I will survive
I count on five
armed angels of the guide

2.V
be still my beating heart
no world will fall apart
let us fill some whisdom to the jar
Musha rain dum a doo, dum a da
fading blue
all picture of you
fading blue
CHORUS

3V
Dum Dai Da
Dumdaidumdaida
2x
let me choose
which picture I use
which picture I use
CHORUS
Track Name: The Bullet
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
Track Name: Lift me up
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
