Biography

Songs with lyrics and melody - Peaches In Wonderland

Gerhard Behnke: Folk Rock with southern accent

Singer-Songwriter from the most southbound Germany: Gerhard Behnke writes his own music for more than 10 years. Captivated by musicians as James Taylor, Neil Young, Tom Petty and the Beatles he feels closely connected to “classical songwriting”. His first stay in the US in 1995 became to a crucial experience: the creative musical scene inspired him writing his first own songs. From there it was just a stone’s throw from publishing own music on a record.

With their original compositions Peaches In Wonderland combine timeless folk with rock’n’roll licks in particular and are modeling their own and personal style. The guitar sounds from Oliver Droese became the band’s hallmark: They fit the songs perfectly and give the melodies a special recognition value. The songs are played with a lot of lucency and profoundness without vasting one single note! The sound is straight honest and isn’t hiding behind effect walls.

Peaches In Wonderland are one of the bands in the area demonstrating musical continuity. The band is stilistically cutting its own path.

Peaches In Wonderland was founded in 1999.!

Lyrics

Mother Earth

Written By: Gerhard Behnke/Pen Galaxyz

Walk on the moon
Have a look at the earth
See how she’s hiding
Butterfly’s turning into stars
Polar lights are painting these bars

Fill up this room
With your sound of your dreams
Hear how it’s laughing
Dolphin’s diving into space
Someone’s loosing this limited race

CHORUS:
Come on girls raise your voice
Tune in this endless song
Swing in the planets echoes
And say hello to Mother Earth

End up this song
With a try to forgive
Breathe while you’re walking
A horseman’s riding down to Mars
Holding back the Queen of hearts

Back on the moon
Turn off the lights
Close down your windows
Darkness’s covering the golden star
Planet Earth’s twinkling much too far

CHORUS:
Com’on people play the drums
Feel the guitar’s fire
Swing in the planets echoes
And say hello to Mother Earth

Miss Happiness

Written By: Gerhard Behnke

Give me more light in the jungle
Give me more light in the night
Light up my day, it's so tempting
Give me more light to my soul

Give me the taste of your sweet life
Give me the taste of your love
Sweet up my day, it's so tempting
Give me the taste of harmony

I'm turning back the times
I'm kissing your eyes
I'm whispering a poem for you
I'm looking at your face
I'm dreaming with you
Miss Happiness, you've got a moment for me?

I did everything within my power
I stayed awake in the night
I fought back the Prince of Darkness
Give me the power for moving on

I'm turning back the times
I'm kissing your eyes
I'm whispering a poem for you
I'm looking at your face
I love your sweet smile
Hey, Moonlady, you've got a moment for me?

Cloud Of Unknowing

Written By: Gerhard Behnke

In the desert of the sun
The warmth of love is gone
And magic elfs shed bitter tears

On the dark side of the moon
Despair sends you to doom
And sincere hopes turn into fears

The cloud of unknowing
Conjure up my memories
The light of soothing
Is glowing through
My lonesome mind

On the river of no return
Your heart of gold will burn
And snow white swans will disappear

In the tree of eternity
I can hear your melody
And you my love stay ever near

The cloud of unknowing
Conjure up my memories
The light of soothing
Is glowing through
My lonesome mind

Turn to me
Blossoms do float down to earth

Visions

Written By: Gerhard Behnke

My friend
She's dancing in the wind
She's walking among enemies
My friends
She's singing in the wind
She's touching the sun with her soul

CHORUS
Her dream is on the right track
A pulse in the sea of time
Her life is a vision of roses
A storm in the sea of love

My friend
She likes her coffee sweet
She's tasting her unique dreams
My friend
She hitchhikes up the hill
She's touching the sky with her hands

Her voice is tender and clear
A song in the silence of time
Her eyes are bright and easy
A light in the darkest night

But winter is getting near
Snowflakes are packed in the storm
Ice freezes in the breeze
She's getting cold
Can't you see
She's getting cold

My friend
She's living in your heart
She's traveling around your mind
My friend
She's turning into your thoughts
Come on now and getting all
