Lyrisches

Auf diesen Seiten habe ich in loser Folge einige Texte abgelegt, die in den letzten 20 Jahren entstanden sind. Das ist eine lange Zeitspanne, die verschiedene Phasen und Gemütszustände umfasst.

Es geht um Menschen, die mir begegnet sind, um Orte der Erinnerung, um Liebe, Abschied, Selbsterkenntnis.

Die Texte sind überwiegend in meiner englischen Muttersprache. In letzter Zeit habe ich es vermehrt mit der deutschen Sprache versucht. Sperriger zum dichten zwar, aber zunehmend reizvoll.

sometimes I wonder, whether it's worth
living and feeling the way I do
never a chance to catch my breath
seems I'm always on the move

but when I think of others and the lives they have to spend
without the many changes between beginning and the end
and when I falter and don't know what to do I know:
I’m always on my way to you

In all my yearning I’m always learning
I’m getting stronger day-by-day
simple sadness is tragedy, plain joy is ecstasy
this seems to be my way,

there's nothing in the middle, there're only ups and downs
I notice how life has changed whenever i turn around
but in all this turmoil at least one thing is true, i know
I’m always on my way to you

Some things have died and may not come again
a few things i tried didn't work
my innocence is lost and it's harder to trust
but I’m pulling myself through
because I’m always on my way to you

on my way to you

I don't know how many more mistakes I'll make
how many blind alleys I will follow
I’ll fall in love again, I’ll write new love songs
but this one will stay for tomorrow

somewhere in the distance you're waiting out there
I don't know what you look like, but there'll be something in the air
after every misfire I’ll always start anew
because I’m always on my way to you
