YOU TURNED ME OVER   

Lyrics & Music: Anzy Heidrun Holderbach

 

Reggae: 5.a  3.e  5.E       (d g A)

  

1) There was a rough idea of you in my head

     about what I was told.

     I went away somehow and anyway

     and closed my heart light-minded.

 

REF 1:  But then you simply turned me, simply turned me, simply turned me over,

              you simply turned me over, over and over again

 

2) You're crashlanded in the middle of my heart

     no words left – no need for words

     I looked into your eyes and landed straight into your heart

     I looked into your eyes and landed straight into your soul

 

REF 2: Cause of your silence and wildness,

              ravishing beauty, terrifying nearness,

              the mind-blowing nearness of you

 

BRIDGE: But this time, oh, this time I won't run away

                  this time, yeah, this time I stay

  

 

 

FLYING KITES

Lyrics & Music: Anzy Heidrun Holderbach

 

Capo 2   INTRO / ZW / OUTRO: 7. Fmj7,  3. Fmj7,  5. Barée G+H+E Saite

 

           A                      A-3.Finger      G                    A

1.  I'd like to write a song about all that I feel for you,

                  A                             A-                                  G                                         A

     but it's hard to find right words for that, cause maybe they wouldn't be true.

     A                  A-                                   G                   A

    Take all the written lovesongs and poems of the world

                  A                            A-            G                                  A

     maybe then you could discover the essence I'm talking about.

 

                          F                         G                    C             G

BRIDGE: And this song is for you and I'm sure you know it

                          a           e                     A

                  that I mean you, my true love

                     F                                      G                          C                                    a

REF:   And when we look into each other's eyes we establish long missed ties

            F                  G                                    a

           back to our roots deep inside ourselves.

                     F                                G                       C                   a         

           And then we know it for sure: You are me and I am you.

                            F                         G                         a                 G                       A

           When we look into each other's eyes we are flying kites... flying kites

 

  2.   I see myself in you and I'm excited cause this is true                    

        Watching myself move seems like you're walking in my shoes

        And like the coloured kites in the sky, our soul is going to fly

        and we hold each other's hands and our hearts begin to dance

 

 

 

POSTERBOY

Lyrics & Music Anzy Heidrun Holderbach

 

Capo 3

 

     a                  a

1) Rough and tough

    F                         F                         a-c

    show what you never wanted to be

    a                 a

    Smile and laugh

   F                   F                                  E

     the masquerade pretends to be free

 

                        B                    B          d               d                    A im3.

REF:  You're fooling and joking about you don't give a shit

             d                  B                  E                     a

         it makes you wanna run away – every day  (today)

 

2)  Cheating and gambling in a game that's hard to get rid of

      Presenting and projecting a man you don't feel a bit

 

REF

                                          F                             

BRIDGE: You're their posterboy bound in chains

                        a                                                   

                  suppressing doesn't save you from pains

                  F                                                     

                  comfortably numb by worthless promises

                        a                                                    

                  an unknown drug keeps you up in mindlessness

                           F                                                     

                  your wild heart brought to heel

                            a

                 your soul, now, is their vital meal

 

 

 

WAITING                                           

Lyrics & Music: Anzy Heidrun Holderbach

 

Capo 4

 

    a                        G                F                         a

1. Waiting in the moonlight seems to be romantic

    a                        G                F                         a

    waiting in the moonlight seems to be so cool

    a                        G                F                         a

    waiting in the moonlight seems to be fantastic

    a                        G                F                                      a

    waiting in the moonlight seems to be a Rendez-vous

 

                                        a              G           F                  a

REF: 2x   But I'm still waiting, waiting waiting for you

                              F                       a

BRIDGE 1: But you are still away

                                  F                          a

                    and it's hard for me to stay

                            F                        a

                    and time is passing by

                              E                           E      E7

                    and I stand there and cry

REF: 2x   But I'm still waiting...

 

2. In the spotlight you’re waiting for your dreams come true

    waiting for your true love passing by

    and you're waiting for her hand to show you the way

    and you know that you are doing so

 

BRIDGE 2: But she is already here and waits for you

                      And you should really care, because it's about you

 

REF: 2x   Are you waiting, waiting, waiting for me?

 

ZW:  a G F a   a G F     E E7 E7 E

 

3. This waiting really wears me down, I don't know what to do,

     because maybe tomorrow you'll say you love me too.

    And so I'm waiting for the moonlight to show me the way

    and it's its light that invites me to

3) The lights down in the windows

     are only lonesome shadows

     no home – no place for you

 

4) Dark grief and agony

    greed for pleasure and harmony

    yearning for an unknown aim

    black despair burns deep again

 

REF + ZW a e a e G F E E2 E

 

5) Slowly you turn around

    and you see some horses and a crowd

    the people beckon you to come along

    that might be where you belong

 

6) Through your frozen pain

     now, you feel something again

     your icy wall is melting away

     and then you know where to stay

           

REF:  "That's what I belong!", and your heart sings their song

           "Here is my home where I belong.

             Here is my home, here is where I am at home!"
