Lyrics

The New Man

Written By: Cyrus von Hochstetter

Let me tell you something ’bout the new man in town
and his strategy
- his strategy
Young and good looking he knows he’s got the look
why shouldn’t he?
- why shouldn’t he?
He knows what he likes, knows what he despises
and tells it openly
- he tells it openly
Now watch this guy ’cause he’s gonna rise
that ain’t no fallacy
ain’t no fallacy

What makes you think you’re just half as good as he is?
Don’t waste your time ’cause no one’s gonna grant you no second chance

Chorus:
He is young
He’s got it all
And tomorrow he can rule the world
Don’t you stare away
Just grab his hand
He will teach you how life can be

Wherever he stands
he proves life’s energy
- he is life’s energy
All that matter is what’s gonna be
don’t mind history
- he never mind history
He don’t wanna see you
linger on your insecurity
- he can’t stand lethargy
Now you heard me tell you ‘bout this new man in town
what’re you waiting for?
That’s all you gotta be!

Sunday Time

Written By: Cyrus von Hochstetter

Waking on sunday time
I know I wouldn’t try
It feels like everything is flying around
And I’m just standing in the middle of it

It’s another world than yesterday
My voice is sleepy, will it ever wake up?
The phone won’t ring today, that’s for sure
The only knock at my door comes from the rain

Chorus:
Tell me someday, tell me someday
There won’t be no sunday’s like today
Tell me one day, you’ll be here with me
So there won’t be no sunday’s like today

Waiting for the walls to crash
Soon the ceiling will be cracking my head
The wine is flowing through my veins
Soon I’m gonna wish that I was dead

Waking on sunday time
I know I wouldn’t try
It feels like everything is flying around
And I’m just standing in the middle of it

Chorus

Failure Song

Written By: Cyrus von Hochstetter

Failure Song

I woke up this morning
And I knew I failed last night
You thought all the best of me
Now you know you were half that right

How can things degenerate that fast
When I didn’t win you in a hurry?
All goes to disorder
A book burns faster than a writer writes

It shocks me how weak I am
You showed it to me last night
I had an easy task at hand
Still I failed like a child

Remember the night before?
Not expecting much we ended all so close
I daydreamed to see you again
When you came I was all by myself, by myself

Chorus:
So you were alone, I left you there
Now you’re wondering have I ever been anywhere
Was I in your dream while sleeping side by side?
About a place I know for sure, inside my head it wasn’t very bright

I write songs with no lyrics
Guess I never knew what to say
But what is there left to hide
Now that I fell so low

Did your words mean you felt my distance?
When all I want is being close to you
Like telling a singer he never sang
Or to a groom that he forgot to woo

Maybe all you say is right
And I don’t know how to be close
But baby, don’t let me fail on you
I’m begging you on my knees

I was selfish I was careless
If I loose you I’m the one to blame
How can one be so thoughtless?
And gamble all his fame for shame

Chorus
