Lyrics

You are...

Written By: Lev Kelbert

You are…

By Lev Kelbert

You are the morning star

And I'm the evening star,

You are the sunrise

And I'm the sunset

I'm sad and wise

You're young and full of hopes

You take my breath away…

Hope I take yours...

You think that we might stay together, you and I

You're already eighteen,

I'm only thirty-five

I'm sad and wise,

And by all means I should think twice

But I don't want to - I don't think I will

I'm so overwhelmed by your charm,

I simply drift away in your arms

Never felt like this in the past

I only hope this feeling would last,

You drive me crazy,

You drive me mad,

You make me feel like I've never had,

You make me need to see you each day

Right by my side...

You are the morning star

And I'm the evening star

You are the sunrise

And I'm the sunset

I'm sad and wise

You're young and full of hopes

You take my breath away…

Hope I take yours...


Tell me

Written By: Lev Kelbert

Tell me
Why do I keep calling your name?
Tell me
Why do I keep feeling just the same?
Won’t you please tell me
Why do I still hope,
Day and night, night and day
That though you’ve said good-bye
You will be back again
To stay

The other guy,
He wouldn’t do you no good,
He’ll make you cry,
I know for sure that he would,
For he don’t really love you,
He’s just
Taking advantage of you…
It’ll take some time for you to see it
Like I do…

But I want you back,
I really can’t help it,
Life just don’t seem right
Without you by my side…
I ain’t got much time,
I can’t wait forever
Until
Something happens
That makes you change your mind

The love I feel,
It don’t have the right to exist,
It must be killed,
For I just can’t go on like this…
With someone else I’d find a way
To live with all that and become just a friend,
With someone else I’d do that,
With you I just can’t…

Reality’s tough,
There’s no more happy endings,
Instead, we are clenching our fists
And grinding our teeth…
Reality’s tough,
We just couldn’t handle
Our love
That was swallowed
By the everyday routine…

Tell me
What have we done with that love?
Tell me
What were we both thinking of?

I'm losing you

Written By: Lev Kelbert

A glass of whiskey
That’s what I need
This burning taste will do
That’s how I feel inside –
I’m losing you…

Another cigarette,
The cloud of smoke
That’s hanging in the air
Can’t hide it from my view –
I’m losing you…

Night and day
I keep thinking about it
How shall I face
This new world without you by my side?

My expectations,
My highest hopes,
In fact, they were in vain…
I know it now for sure –
I’m losing you…

Night and day
I keep thinking about it
How shall I face
This new world without you by my side?

The flames are freezing…
The colors fade…
The darkness condensates…
The joy’s forever gone –
I’m losing you…

My world is split

Written By: Lev Kelbert

My world is split in two,
I feel so sad and blue…
Feels so unnatural being here
Without you sitting by my side
What was it that made you decide
To leave me for another guy?
Was that your sweet revenge
To break me down and see me cry?

I have another drink,
Another cigarette,
It’s hell to be deprived of someone
That you know you won’t forget…
The midnight hour is near,
What am I doing sitting here?
The stars are out of sight
And you won’t show up here tonight…

The night is at its end
I haven’t slept a wink,
I think about the things we used to do –
I can’t forget a thing…
Another “miss you” night…
My peace of mind
Is out of sight…
I can’t get over you,
No matter what I’m trying to do…

My world is split in two,
I feel so sad and blue,
I can’t get over you –
No matter what…

I know you don't need me

Written By: Lev Kelbert

I know you don’t need me…
I know it’s no good,
I know you don’t need me
To do things I would…
The plans I’ve been making
Have ended for sure…
I know you don’t need me
No more

I know you don’t want me…
Oh, well, why should you?
I know you don’t want me
To do things I’d do…
The dreams I’ve been dreaming
Have ended for sure,
I know you don’t want me…

Why did it have to be this way?
I can’t believe your love was just a game
You’ve played –
Oh, so well,
So very convincing…

I know you don’t love me,
I must be no good…
I know you don’t love me,
I’d be surprised if you would…
The life I’ve been living
Has ended for sure…
I know you don’t love me
No more…

Change your mind

Written By: Lev Kelbert

I can’t be with you…
But I can’t do without you,
I try hard, but I just can’t stop
Dreaming about you,
I want you so bad,
You treat me so unkind,
I love you so much
Why won’t you change your mind?

You say you don’t need me,
Cause you love someone else,
But only two weeks ago
It was myself…
Tell me, what had happened?
I must know where I stand…
Did our love exist?
Or did you just pretend?

In a movie, he would be a hero,
And he’d love you madly…
And me, I would be a drug dealer,
Who just treats you badly…
I’d be punished, and he would be noble and rich,
And your new wedding gown would lack just one last stitch…

But in the real world it’s complex,
Not just black or white…
We have both done you wrong,
Though I’ve tried hard to treat you right,
And today’s situation leaves no room for doubt –
Concerning your life, he’s inside, and I’m out…

So should we better get real, and forget one another?
And let you think you’re happy with your newfound lover?
But my love keeps on burning,
Getting stronger each day,
And I don’t care if I’m dreaming my life away –

For though I can’t be with you,
I just can’t do without you,
I try hard, but I just can’t stop
Dreaming about you,
I want you so bad,
You treat me so unkind,
I love you so much
Why won’t you change your mind?
