1. Out in the street

Joe is going out to play, he’s taking his guitar
He’s going to the end of the block, it realy ain’t that far
Jimmy closed the backdoor, and is whistling all the way
He’s put his bongo’s on his back, he knows it’s time to sway

Refr.:
Out in the street, with your friends to meet
Out in the street, where you can feel the beat
Out in the street, out in the street

Louis starts to clap his hands, and joey starts to groove
everybody start to dance, they all know how to move
Taking time to have there fun, laughing all the way
Even when the sun arives they all intend to stay

Refr.

On monday they all go back working,
mostly from 9 to 5
On saterday they all come together,
to have their fun and feel alive

Kijkend naar buiten, ziet de zon schijnen
eind van de middag check je laatste bladzijde
Weer een week voorbij zo vergaat de tijd, ja het is
tijd voor het weekend, Jo, tijd voor vrije tijd
Hardwerkend op kantoor, gedachten bij de zaak,
En Zo gaat de Job, toch is het goed te chillen hier en daar
He, ’s avonds een wijntje, zaterdag op
pad met de kids, ’s zondags genieten van de
gitaar en uitwaaien in de wind, cheer,
De beste muziek klinkt uit een box, het geeft
energie, het wordt dollen met de hond in het bos,
of wordt ‘t met de family, naar het strand kijkend naar de
zee, de zon, schittert, zittend met een
biertje gewoon alleen, luister naar de
rust, zit stil in gedachten, geniet Jo en
volg de muziek en get out in the street.

2. My most special, special friend (Gert’s song)

We will never drink that special bottle of red wine
It’s been standing here for almost two years
We’re always busy, tired or just ain’t got the time
No I’m so sorry and my eyes fill with tears

I always said you’re my most special special friend
And even now, that your gone, you’ll always be
My most special, special friend

And your beautifull music cut right into my soul
It could make me feel so sad, so melancholic, so whole
I could feel you, your meaning, your intention, you
I have felt your fear but your contentment too
We said we’d be special for a lifetime
And never realized that this would be so short
And now I miss you, my most special special friend
(2e x herhaal laatste zin)

Big discussions in the middle of the night
Well is there really true love? What’s the meaning of life?
’Bout the big man and the little man and our spiritual needs
The finest jazz in the theater, walk the dog on the beach

Now that you’re gone I’ll drink that bottle of red wine in your name
And I’m sure that life and music and I
Will never be the same

3. Tender as a rose

She was as tender as a rose
She was as soft as snowy down
And from her head down to her toes
She was a dream that hung around
She was as fresh as april
Warm as may
And all the fellas threw their hearts away
But all of her lovin was Joe’s she was as tender as a rose

I guess that Joe was kinda sick
His feelings went from cold to hot
To him her love was just a kick
His ego needed her a lot
And when he took her away she wore a smile
Fate crossed it’s fingers for that lovely child
Cause all of her lovin’ was Joe’s
She was as tender as a rose

She came back walking all alone
She wasn’t gone for very long
She came back with a heart of stone
We knew that everything had gone wrong
And when you ask her why she’s out each night
She’ll say, “Brother, once, once I tried to be right
Once all of my loving was Joe’s
I was as tender as a rose.”
She was as tender as a rose

4. If You Go

If you go, you know you take my whole life with you baby
If you go, You know that I won’t be the same now baby
Don’t do it honey, my life won’t be the same without you
Don’t do it baby, ‘cause I just couldn’t live without you

You’ve got the power, my life’s in your hand
Come with me baby, I want you to understand
Don’t give me hell, If you do I will surely die
Don’t lead us down the hill with tears in our eyes

Don’t go, ‘cause if you do you hurt me soo bad now baby
Don’t go, don’t,
‘cause you’re the best, the best I’ve ever had now baby

It’s all up to you, your wish is my command
Come with me baby, I want you to hold my hand
I need you to lead me to the endless day
Won’t you love me just a little bit, make everythin’everytin’ allright

Don’t go baby Heeeey

If you go, I’ll do anything to get you back now baby
Don’t you know, my love for you’s a natural fact now baby

I need a compagnon for the long lone home
Come with me baby, I just can’t make it on my own
I love you tomorrow, honey like I do today
Don’t take my pride and my joy away

5. Fifteen!! (Nadya’s song)

So this is now your fifteenth birthday
Didn’t think this would ever happen
But this, right now, is your glorious day
I’m so happy to see this be
I’m so thrilled to see you so alive
The future is right ahead

A little better every day
although scary, not so bad
A little more light, so you can see
everything clear and not so hazily
A little less load, so you can carry
a little easier, not so tough
So reassuring, not so scary
all is smooth and not so rough

My wish for you, my beautiful girl
Is all the best that I can wish for
All the love that I can pray for
All the happiness I can ask for
Just peace, peace, for you my love
Be happy, be loved, I love you
My baby, my daughter, my beautiful girl
I’ll always be there for you!!! 2x

So this is now your fifteenth birthday…..

6. This picture on my skin

Never thought I’d lose you, – this awful pain
How to get over it – drives me insane
Got to make a statement
Show the world how I feel
Painfull art of culture in the deepness of the decoration…
The decoration as a meaning of my life

Refr.:
Got to make it clear- through this rhythm of pain
From now on this will be the meaning of my skin
It hurts so much but through this I’ll gain
My sanity and the art of losing
It hurts to lose this pain

Never thought I’d lose you, – I’ll never be the same
Decoration of a warrior, – in this losing game
This will be my body-story – to be the most of me
Painfull art of culture in the deepness of the decoration….
The decoration as a meaning of my life

Refr.:
Got to make it clear- through this rhythm of pain
From now on this will be the meaning of my skin
It hurts so much but through this I’ll gain
My sanity and the art of losing
It hurts to lose this pain

Choir:   Through his pain
This picture on my skin
This I’ll gain
The art of losing
It hurts, to lose, this pain

7. I cried for you

You’re beautiful so silently
It lies beneath a shade of blue
It struck me so violently
When I looked at you
But others pass, the never pause,
To feel that magic in your hand
To me you’re like a wild rose
They never understand why

Refr.:
I cried for you
When the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you,
That beauty need only be a whisper

I’ll cross the sea for a different world,
With your treasure, a secret for me to hold
In many years they may forget
This love of ours or that we met,
They may not know
how much you meant to me.

Refr.

Without you now I see,
How fragile the world can be
And I know you’ve gone away
But in my heart you’ll always stay.

Refr. + That beauty need only be a whisper

8. My mother

Looking back on a hard and bitter life
So many things that you’ve done
Working hard with your daddy on the farm
Not much school but stacking hay and milking cows

When the soldiers came, you were only just fourteen years old
It marked the end of a warm and careless youth
Evacuated twice losing all your precious things
Hiding people and living in fear

Now your world is getting smaller every day
Watching people trough your window, not going anywhere
‘cause you’re scared that you won’t know just where you are
so it’s sleeping or eating or sitting in your chair
not going anywhere

Married late to this young man with a ship
Had four babies in four years
But he wasn’t as strong as you hoped that he would be
So it ended in hardship and tears

Bridge:
Now your big working hands are resting on your lap
Not many chores left, that those big working hands can do
Stumble through your house, minding every step
Hope your mind will keep on working to see you through…….

Now your world is getting smaller every day
Watching people trough your window, not going anywhere
‘cause you’re scared that you won’t know just where you are
so it’s sleeping or eating or sitting in your chair
not going anywhere….

9. Different priority

Even though I’m happy with the way things are
I’m not sure, it seems so far
It’s so simple to be rational
But so much harder to be emotional

Refr:
Your greatest love it isn’t me
A different, a different
How strong can a second best love be
I mean a different priority

Accept is all that I can do
Or it will mean I’m losing you
But I’m still doubting, can’t you see
Well about you babe, and not about me

Refr.

I can’t compete your greatest love
So the coming time is going to be tough
For it slips like a breeze through my hands
And I’m afraid that you don’t understand

10. Summer knows

I won’t forget the way I met you
It’s locked up in my heart
Never thought I’d be so lucky
It seemed I pulled the right card
Making plans together
‘bout how our lives would be
Oh yes I’m sure, summer knows

Building us a real big fire
Staring at the light
Making up our minds together
While holding arms real tight
Making plans together
‘bout how our lives would be
Oh yes I’m sure, summer knows

Refr:
Summer knows, how my love grew by the day
But now, you’re gone, you went away
Summer knows, just about all my secret dreams
Oh yes, I am sure summer knows

I won’t forget the way I met you (way I met you)
It’s locked up in my heart (It’s locked up in my heart)
Never thought I’d be so lucky (be so lucky)
It seemed I pulled the right card
Making plans together
‘bout how our lives would be
Oh yes I’m sure, summer knows

Refr. + oh yes I’m sure….. summer knows

11. Lovin’ Whiskey

Well if you live in dusty twilight baby, that’s ok
Cause there are woman at the bar to greet you every day
You can take them back to lie with you and visit Jamie’s room
But they can never take the pain away, or brighten all the gloom
And if your hands are cleansed with sorrow
May it help you ease your pain
Though the windows have a view of city rain, city rain

Well if you walk in constant sorrow, and you cry for me
And if your hit with painful memories, maybe then you’ll see
That if you drown yourself in liquor,
Because it keeps you company
Then just remember who you’re losing
And be proud to set me free
Because it don’t talk back or disagree
It just makes you see so hazily
But in de morning light your life is scattered with the wind,
scattered with the wind

And they tell you on the telephone to let him go
I said they tell you he’s a sinking ship
And he’ll try to pull you down, don’t you know
That every time you call me up and said you want me back
You know you break my heart
You said you want me to come back home and try again
You want me to make a brand new start
But if whisdom says to let him go
Than it’s hell because you just dont know
Untill you’ve tried to love a man who’s lovin’ whiskey,
Lovin’ whiskey

My baby left me for a bottle, And the lure of the nightlife
Good times and crazy women, And another glass of tangerine
But if whisdom says to let him go,Then it’s hell because you just dont know
Untill you’ve tried to love a man who’s lovin’ whiskey
Lovin’ whiskey

12. Angels

Like an eagle with spreaded wings
around me to protect me
From all the pain in the deep dark past,
from all the hurt of where I’m from
That’s how your love feels to me

Like an eagle with spreaded wings
around me to protect me
From all the storms and all the rains,
From all the rest yet still to come
This is how you feel to me

Refr:
I know there will be angels watching over us
To help us see how deep our love can be
I know there will be angels watching over us
To make us see how sweet our love can be
To make us see that we are meant to be

How can I ever let you know,
how much you mean to me
A solid ground to come home,
a never ending circle of infinity
This is what you mean to me

The future will be easier
‘Cause you want to share your life with me
But most you want to give your love
Your beautiful, unselfisch love to me

Refr.

13. Trees

Let me…. sing you a song
I wrote….. when I was eight
A pure….. and simple song
The first…. I ever made

I still know the lyrics but I’m to ashamed
To put them here on this CD I made
It was in Dutch and a little strange
It’s about a girl who loves the trees

So let me… sing you a song
That I wrote… When I was eight
A pure… and simple song
The first… I ever made… I ever made
