BandPopSinger/Songwriter

I'd describe my music as universal. I sing about everyday problems in relationships or friendships a lot. Everytime I'm confronted with these problems I write about it and it makes me feel better.

Biography

I used to always make music together with my twin sister but she decided that she didn't want to go down that road anymore, about one year ago. She got married and now It's just me. We sang all our lives - not professional but we used to always write songs together and stuff. After our big fall-out i couldn't touch my guitar for months but I love what I do so I do what I love :). In a way, with every song I write I can firmly hear myself changing. Not searching for the right tune still but developing as a solo artist.

What Do We Live For

Written By: Lisa-Maria Schlagholz

Life is dar but for you the moon is shining, then why won't you open your eyes

Skiping over headlines, unaware of violence, it's just a waste of your time

That huge fence round your house can maybe keep problems out, yet with time you may go blind
With rape, destruction and war occuring outside your door, how can you turn a blind eye

When hate and love results in death
Then what do we live for
You raise your voice just to drown that noise
without attempt to put an end to this
how can you not see this as it is

Taken atvantage of and gaged
to hush up the voice in their heads
and still they fight for their rights
but you live like in a bubble
with wisdom bouncing off of it
you may one day realize

and other drama makes news
while slowly you're zapping through
these blurred visions of doomed lifes
say what must finally come up
to actively shake you up
so you won't ever take it in your stride again

Magic

Written By: Lisa-Maria Schlagholz

Look at yourself and turn around
And if there’s nothing else to live life for
That’s just no, no no excuse
I left that corner of the building
Wind blowing through my hair
Falling leafs in fall
So what the hell do you need more

That cool breeze rushing up my face
Do you smell that snow
And inside you it feels warm
When everybody turns away from you
It’s good to know
You’re not alone out here

Stuck up
Stop it
Or you’ll lose it
Lose, what’s that
Tell me why noone sees
The magic
All you self centered
Open your eyes and look
I cannot put it into words

Turning in circles looking up
The tree tops joining in my dance
Showing me there’s more more way more to it
As shafts of sunlight hurt my eyes
Ignore that giddiness inside
I can’t control
Myself anymore
Stuck up
Stop it
Or you’ll lose it
Lose what’s that
Tell me why noone sees
The magic
All you self centered
Open your eyes and look
I cannot put it into words

The sun goes down as evening falls over that town
And streetlights light up the way
And I just, I just follow
Absent in mind I pull my sweather close at night
As my reflection slowly fades out of that that shop window

Stuck up
Stop it
Or you will just lose it
Tell me why noone sees
The magic
All you self centered
Open your eyes and look
I cannot put it into words

That’s magic
I cannot put it into words

Word's Can't Do

Written By: Lisa-Maria Schlagholz

I haven’t seen you in a long, long time
For all I know
I’m lost in memories but will we talk again sometime
And will you ever forgive me for
The mistakes
You never gave me time to explain why
You know I never meant to hurt you, oh
I feel
That pain exploding inside, ready to blow
I’m on my knees
Your face is still on my bedroom walls
Every night
Your frozen image watches me cry my self to sleep

Where are you now
Will I see you coming back
I guess I would be
Thankful for one single word
You’re everything that I think of
But what’s more
And my words can’t do

Wake up to the sound of your voice
I believe
That far away, somewhere you are still calling me
I know I never said thank you for
Everything
I found myself in a trance that only you can ease
I never found the right words to explain
I thought
I let you know and the time will let you break my heart
And every day I feel sorry for
Every word
I never told you when you were still listening

Altering Blur

Written By: Lisa-Maria Schlagholz

Sometimes we don’t know where life leads to
With no clue who you are
Downbeat and messed up
Apprehensive and awed
You don’t know where you are, but
When life gets dark it all will pass
Coz with winter turning into Spring
Don’t take things for granted
That make you who you are

That altering blur
Of success and failure
Will never let you forget
Why these things happen
Life is one big chain reaction
You have to stand up for your actions
Or you won’t change a thing

Caught-up in moments of doubt
Never follow the signposts
Better just turn around
And rather talk than just speak
You’ll have your chance to forgive
And forget anyone
In times of trouble and cold
Just reach out for support
Someone will always be there
Don’t take them for granted
They make you who you are

Broken Glass

Written By: Lisa-Maria Schlagholz

We’ve held hands all thoroughout
Our lives we would always look out
Together we fixed bumps in the road
So how can you be my pothole now
That one piece that kept me whole
With you gone that puzzle is destroyed
Once too often you had me hypnotized
Now I have nothing left to apologize

With your footsteps leading away from me
Can I alone continue this journey
Can we forgive even if we cant forget
I found myself distracted with regret

When I look into the mirror
I see you drowning in tears, run towards you
I wake up bleeding in pieces broken of glass
That only seconds ago just reflected us
We were eachothers shadow
Now I confuse your voice with my echo
How could I just stand by and watch
You take a road leading away from me

We both made many mistakes
It takes two to cause such an impact
It’s not the words you’ve said hurting inside
It’s the truth behind every each one of it
How could we grow so apart
I’m obsessed with this pitch black darkness
A house of cards crashing down at one blow
And I won’t help you rebuild it anymore

With your footsteps leading away from me
Can I alone continue this journey
Can we forgive even if we cant forget
I found myself distracted with regret

I don't

Written By: Lisa-Maria Schlagholz

My eyes turn blurry with tears
I hear your voice
Slowly echoing – resounding in my head
Feeling the touch of your hand
On my cheek – cold and useless
Now repeading what you said
Slowly trying to
Put some sence into
Everything I just heard
I can’t stop my tears
Running down my cheeks
And still I don’t understand

I don’t, I don’t know
And did I do something wrong
When did that happen to us
I won’t, I won’t let
Your words destroy me, instead
I just turn around and walk away

I hear you calling my name
I make out
Footsteps following somewhere behind me
Thinking of what you said
Now I run
To keep me from suffocating in my tears
Slowly going numb
Panik building up
Everything turning dark
Like a house of cards
Crashing down at once
I try to scream but I can’t

I don’t, I don’t know
And did I do something wrong
When did that happen to us
I won’t, I won’t let
Your words destroy me, instead
I just turn around and walk away

Hardly feel the rain
Washing down the pain
Waking out of that trance
Your eyes over me
I don’t dare to breathe
And how am I still alive

No

I don’t, I don’t know
And did I do something wrong
When did that happen to us
I won’t, I won’t let
Your words destroy me, instead
I just turn around and walk away

I don’t, I don’t know
And did I do something wrong
When did that happen to us
I won’t, I won’t let
Your words destroy me, instead
I just close my eyes and dream it wasn’ true
