BUANA (No Safari)

Oh why ee yeah Oh why ee yeah

No Buana no safari No Buana no safari now Tigata Bombay to the Himalaya We gotta keep safe all wild life ya yeah !

Well this poor little girl in a cold winter day She can't give a damn if it's a Lion or a Lamb Poor little neck is gotta have a decent fur Or she can't show off in the poor winter day

Poor millionaire hasn't got enough So he burns all jungles and aborigines More ! More ! More ! I want more so I can explode before

Tigata Bombay to the Himalaya We gotta keep safe all wild life ya yeah ! Tigata Cairo to the Mozambico We gotta give bread to the hungry people

Oh why ee yeah Oh why ee yeah

No Buana no safari No Buana no safari now Let's keep away for just one day From killing the animals And killing all the people

Oh why ee yeah Oh why ee yeah

No Buana no safari No Buana no safari now

 

DOLCE VITA

We're walking like in a Dolce Vita This time we got it right We're living like in a Dolce Vita Gonna dream tonight We're dancing like in the Dolce Vita With lights and music on Our love was made in the Dolce Vita Nobody else than you

It's our last night Together with our love again Another light before we drown in darkness Say you'll never leave me now Say you're gonna love me now

We made it down in the Dolce Vita Wipe all your fears away We'll live it like in a Dolce Vita A game of yesterday I'm so alone in the Dolce Vita Oh baby telephone The magic's gone in the Dolce Vita Nobody else than you

It's our last night Together with our love again Another light before we drown in darkness Say you'll never leave me now Say you're gonna love me now

 

SANDY

Something in the sky has told me To seek for my fate This innocent dream of love In a teenage heart Images of war come back again Into my eyes This little lady walking straight In the moonlit shade

Sandy Don't you know that I loved you Don't you know that I needed you To make my life worthwhile

Something in those years has blanked My feelings away Forgotten memories Burning from inside

You had power in your eyes You had power in your hands You had power in your heart And you gave in

Sandy Don't you know that I loved you Don't you know that I needed you To make my life worthwhile

 

WATERLAND

Do you remember that day ? The polaroid of that siren in the bay The things we said about Scandinavia

On Strandveyen we walked From Helsingor to the Aquarium again The way we took our love to claustrophobia

All and all we lived alone in Waterland Memories are blending into Waterland The feeling's okay Our mental health is safe Safe and unsure

Are you still able to laugh ? Didn't you achieve all the goals in your head The wounds that I just can't forget

All and all we lived alone in Waterland Memories are blending into Waterland The feeling's okay Our mental health is safe Safe and unsure

 

WOMEN COME WOMEN GO

Hey ladies of my life I've been waiting here so long Hey ladies it didn't last Cause you thought you were so strong

Women come and women go They take my soul And they think they got me Women come and women go And I don't know why Never in or out from the front door

Hey ladies of my life I wonder where you are right now Hey ladies from my past Do you remember all your vows Cause you women came and you women went And you left a trace In my shattered clay heart

You women laughed and you women cried And your voices still Ripple endless in my blood

Women come and women go They take your soul And they think they got you Women come and women go I don't know why

Women come and women go They take your soul And they think they got you They come and they go Never from the front door

 

SHANGHAI STORY

What a moment of grace What a moment of happiness It's nearly morning now And she is still there to caress In a fragment of time So short it never ends You see the mystery That includes your world in hers

Shanghai story,burning incense Shading out the night Shanghai story thru the tales Of omens from the sky Living beyond all the rational Logical points of view

What a moment of peace What a moment of fulfillment And motivation While she is still there to be kissed

Shanghai story, burning incense Shading out the night Shanghai story thru the tales Of omens from the sky Living beyond all the rational Logical points of view

 

FACE TO FACE (The Matador and the Toro)

Thru Deserts and Oceans, ignorance and notions I'll seek for you Hoping that somewhere in your well hidden anger You're weak It's so dangerous, glowing arena So pretentious, Sun, Blood and Sand In the name of what ?

The Matador and the Toro Face to Face The Matador and the Toro Stand up for the final Face to Face Heart To Heart

Will crowds and ovations, hatred and passion Stop you now The game has just started, the Dice have been cheated Again In the stadium does mercy appear ? When the winner shows the symbol of Fear In the name of What ?

Fighting, burning sun forever Admiration fever, Esmeralda's watching Fighting, burning sword in my skin Haunted by a red rag Ready for the last attack

The Matador and the Toro Face to Face The Matador and the Toro Stand up for the final Face to Face Heart To Heart They're dancing away in the wing of the heat With their feelings complete Of outstanding Emotions

 

MADAME BOVARY

Now the weather is okay Birds fly again The season has changed Winter's over The people,the streets Crowded again The flies on the walls Children they smile Flowers they smile

Without you Madame Bovary Nothing can mean anything With your presence here Life is evident All the colours in the world Cannot be there without you

The farmers,the fields Are sweating again The tourists they bathe In so so waters The features of life Blend joy and strain Blend rich and poor Children they smile Flowers they smile

Without you Madame Bovary Nothing can mean anything With your presence here Life is evident All the colours in the world Cannot be there without you

A reminiscence of my french lessons This lady teaching Flaubert And the Romantics The glimpse of her eyes And the tone of her voice Would take me down to Paris in 1830

Without you Madame Bovary Nothing can mean anything With your presence here Life is evident All the colours in the world Cannot be there without you

 

GAMILA

In Africa

We're cruising through the night ~Gamila~ This desert is so tight ~Gamila~ We rejoice in the name of life Though this cold cuts like a knife

We're walking in the sun ~Gamila~ Our battle is begun We will fight in the sweat and sand No more blood will stain our land

Since the age of time We're waiting in a line What the prophet said We just can't forget So behind our camels And on our knees In the dying wind We share our seeds

We're walking in the sun ~Gamila~ Our battle is begun ~Gamila~ Kibir~ Kibir~

In Africa

 

WILD HORSES

You turned my faders on upside down And you thought that you could Get me crawling on the ground

You knew my secrets you controlled them all And you thought you got my shoulders Stuck to the wall

So you rode away You were taming Wild Horses You made my day You absorbed my resources You never thought I would walk away You never thought I wasn't gonna stay

Infatuation seemed to reach an end And the dreams are distorted As forgotten friends

And though your sarcasm could kill a man You'll always stay unhappy You don't understand

So you rode away You were taming Wild Horses You made my day You absorbed my resources You never thought I would walk away

You never thought I wasn't gonna stay
