Track Name: Carousel Of Life
carousel of life




spinning around
i can feel my life coming into view
like a dream
reality is finally coming over you
destiny
you know that you are just the only one for me
and i believe
if you look within yourself you’ll surely see

carousel
we’re riding on a carousel
carousel
hold tightly to the carousel of life
carousel
we’re riding on a carousel
carousel
hold tightly to the carousel of life

life can be
a thing of beauty for the world to see
and of pain
but just remember that we hold the key
life is short
so hold your head up and remove your frown
life is hard
but try to never let it get you down

carousel
we’re riding on a carousel
carousel
hold tightly to the carousel of life
carousel
we’re riding on a carousel
carousel
hold tightly to the carousel of life
Track Name: Carte Blanche
carte blanche

you waltz in
about a hundred miles an hour
like a dream
your eyes set to devour

when you smile
the room lights up around you
you’ve got style
and poise
drama queen
the earth revolves around you
with carte blanche
and grace

you welcome one and all
with delight
a masquerade of
truth or dare
and so begins
the grande affair
and you’re dressed to kill
with flare

when you smile
the room lights up around you
you’ve got style
and poise
drama queen
the earth revolves around you
with carte blanche
and grace

and with your carte blanche
you smile
move to the music
alright
oh you look so right
tonight
an academy award performance
in lights
move to the music
alright
move to the music
tonight
move to the music
alright
oh you look so right
tonight
yes no yes no yes no
no no
Track Name: Colourful Rumour
colourful rumour


you’ve got the nerve
you’re such a fool
how can you look me
in the face
cause what you said
came back to me
and i feel so hurt
and betrayed
so here i stand
my conscience clear
and i bet you can’t
say the same
so here i stand

such a colourful rumour
as i look in your eyes
but it’s only a rumour
i see through your disguise

you know and i know
the way that it should go
and although that i know
i feel the pain, but even so
i know that you know
the way that it should go
and although that you know
you’ll never let truth show

your wreckless life
of debauchery
is back to slap you
in the face
when all is said
and all is done
solemnly swear that
it’s the truth
common sense
for what it’s worth
is not so common anymore

such a colourful rumour
as i look in your eyes
but it’s only a rumour
i see through your disguise

you know and i know
the way that it should go
and although that i know
i feel the pain, but even so
i know that you know
the way that it should go
and although that you know
you’ll never let truth show
Track Name: Circus Disco
Circus Disco


we’re looking at the lights
we’re looking at the stars
and though they shine
you’re what’s on my mind
your love for me
is all i see

spinning around
my life is like a fantasy
it’s like the carousel of my life
lights flash around
we’re moving to the energy
stars in the circus disco tonight

you know it’s such a shame
and as the time goes by
when all is said and done
let’s just have some fun
and now the crowd
is dancing ‘round

spinning around
my life is like a fantasy
it’s like the carousel of life
lights flash around
we’re moving to the energy
stars in the circus disco tonight

and now the party’s done
it’s time to say goodbye
but you’re not alone
gonna take you home
your love for me
is all i see
Track Name: You Are A Part Of Me
you are a part of me



where ever you may go
i’m always with you
ever near or far away
i’m right beside you
loving you is easy
you are always so kind
the times we are together
you drive me out of my mind

staring over across at you
as we sit at our table for two
looking at the stars above
everything reminds me of you
i take your hand so gently
i whisper to you so softly
you make my life complete
you are a part of me

when ever you’re away
we seem a world apart
i just close my eyes and then
you are in my heart
this is almost like a dream
i hold you close tonight
i am such a lucky man
under the moonlight

staring over across at you
as we sit at our table for two
looking at the stars above
everything reminds me of you
i take your hand so gently
i whisper to you so softly
you make my life complete
you are a part of me

you are a part of me
Track Name: A Red Letter Day
A Red Letter Day


Go to work and take your calls
Hang the fruits of your labour on the walls
Such precision and care
What does it matter
if there's no one here to share
the flowers in the garden
the wine
the Waiting for Godot
and so much modern time?

All I want is what you want
I'm always waiting for a red letter day

The years perfecting a stance
of measured cool fade into insignificance
the moment one starts to understand
what on earth does it profit a man?

All I want is what you want
I'm always waiting for a red letter day
for something special, somehow new
someone saying 'I love you'
Baby, I'm waiting
for that red letter day

You can sneer or disappear
behind a veneer of self-control
but for all of those
who don't fit it
who follow their instincts
and are told they sin
this is a prayer for
a different way

All I want is what you want
I'm always waiting for a red letter day
like Christmas morning when you're a kid
Admit you love me and you always did
Baby, I'm hoping
for that red letter day
today
Track Name: Russian Waltz
Russian Waltz



As we walk under the moonlight.

Поскольку мы идем под лунным светом.


Your hand in my hand

Ваша рука в моей руке


I feel so close to you.

Я чувствую так близко к Вам.



Can you feel it too?

Вы можете чувствовать это также?
Track Name: Counterclockwise
Counterclockwise



tensions are mounting high
and i’m gonna fall
it’s more than i can take
up against the wall
a fading memory
and lost in time
i holding on so tight
with all my might

i run one way
you run the other way

over and over
we fall apart
over and over
back to the start
not counterclockwise
move back to me
make me whole again
my handsome friend

and you’re all i think about
why can’t you see
and that’s why i really need
you here with me
so let’s rewind the time
and start again
won’t you think seriously
and come with me

i run one way
you run the other way


over and over
we fall apart
over and over
back to the start
not counterclockwise
move back to me
make me whole again
my handsome friend
Track Name: The Adventures Of Klaus Nomi
the adventures of klaus nomi



Well he came from outer space
Childhood years in Germany
Longed to sing an Aria
Longing for the glory
New York bound he takes the stage
Vaudeville style mixed with New Wave
Avant Garde for a modern age
Tuxedo style, he's all the rage

And he came from outer space
Big bow tie and a painted face
He came to save the human race
This is how the adventure goes
A different time and a different place
Big bow tie and a painted face
Robot moves with a touch of grace
The adventures of Klaus Nomi

With some opera and some pop
Looks that make the traffic stop
And some pointy hair on top
Falsetto voice - electropop
He's not quite like you or I
A vision in black and white
Just before he says goodbye
He drifts back into the night

And he came from outer space
Big bow tie and a painted face
He came to save the human race
This is how the adventure goes
A different time and a different place
Big bow tie and a painted face
Robot moves with a touch of grace
The adventures of Klaus Nomi

Track Name: Tokyo Tower

i’m on top of tokyo tower

私は東京タワーの上にある


the city is so beautiful

都市はとても美しい


i feel so close to heaven

私は従って天に近い感じる
Track Name: Safe And Sound
safe and sound


i miss you so much
i feel it deeply
waiting now
wondering when you’ll come home

a smell, a sound
a memory, it
brings me back to the time
when we first met

i count the minutes
i count the hours
and as we live our lives
the time moves

now you’ve come back to me
hold you in my arms
you can’t believe how much
you moved me to tears
listen to this, my heart
is no longer still
and you’ll come back to me
safe and sound
Track Name: Rock Star
rock star


a clap of thunder
as he takes the stage
the beat is pounding
and he’s all the rage
a mighty rock star
of sound and stage
the rhythm grabs you
and throws you in a cage

how long can
this go on
your fate
has arrived
the way that
you move
the charade of a
fallen rock star

his light is dimming
intrest growing thin
the once hot ticket
fading from within
and all his glory
is coming to a close
the final chapter
of the final show

how long can
this go on
your fate
has arrived
the way that
you move
the charade of a
fallen rock star
Track Name: My Happiness
"my happiness"


in the darkness
my fears begin to soar
information
is mounting by the hour
feel the pressure
it can be so intense
with permission
and with a simple wish

slowly now
i bow down my head
and rise
up from my knees

here i stand
standing all alone
hiding from the world
fighting for my happiness

here i stand
hands against the wall
fearful of the world
fearful for my happiness

deep within me
my souls filled with desire
breathing softly
to calm a stirring fire
as my world falls
down slowly 'round my feet
still a light shines
forever faithfully

slowly now
i bow down my head
and rise
up from my knees

here i stand
standing all alone
hiding from the world
fighting for my happiness

here i stand
hands against the wall
fearful of the world
fearful for my happiness
