And If The World Went Down

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

And if the world went down
I 'd be smiling till the end
I'd thank for all the time
that I could spend to understand
I'd say hello to what would come, I would be free
I'd say goodbye to all I've loved like you and me
And if the world went down
I 'd be smiling till the end

And would you smile with me
until the last sunrise?
And would you dance with me
and look into my slowly fading eyes?

And if the world went down I'd remember all
the good things that we tried to realize
And if the world went down I would hold your hand
And we would smile and close our eyes

And if the world went down
Who would keep our memory?
Would someone think of us
and write down our history?

And if the world went down
I would sing one final verse
I would embrace it all
while merging with the universe
I'd say hello to what would come, I would be free
I'd say goodbye to all I've loved like you and me
And if the world went down
I would sing one final verse

With a Smile

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

Oh, I can't believe that you missed new year
You did not wake up from your very last dream
you had to go while we are still here
We remember you while we float up the stream

The crows you showed me are still around
they 're playing their games that you loved to see
They seem to know the peace you have found
They seem to deliver your greetings to me

It's hard to believe that we have lost you
As father, as husband, as one good friend, too
the tears will go by, it may take a long while
your love will survive within me with a smile

I'll follow your trace, I'll follow your way
I 'm thankful for all the time you've been here
Will we meet again on one future day?
Till then I am sure, you'll always be near

It's hard to believe that now you are gone
But you are still here within me and this song
the tears will go by, it may take a long while
your love will survive within me with a smile

Farewell

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

Winter has gone secretly
like you too did silently
Spring is close, some blooming smiles touch me, I'm almost free
It would be fine if you were here with me

Pain disappears silently
like spring appears secretly
Within all the blooming life and within all these smiles
I seem to see a trace you 've left for me

I thought I'd spent the new year's eve
with you and Paul and Mum
Instead we heard Halleluja
to say goodbye to you
One last time we bid farewell

Winter has gone secretly
like you too did silently
Spring is close, some blooming smiles touch me, I'm almost free
It would be fine if you were here with me

Vom Mond/Solar System

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

Schau auf'n Mond, duat wårma amål
die Spuan duat bleibn ewig füa fåst ålle Zeit
Gsuacht håma Fuatschritt und Hoffnung auf meha
die Eadn håma gfundn in iahm blauan Kleid

Fly into the solar system
Watch the world from outer space
Then you'll see it from the distance
That there is just one human race

So zoat und valetzlich, in an finstan Raum
East weit weg leanst Demut, de's so dringend braucht
Vom Mond aus betråchtet, a blaua Planet
so klan und zabrechlich, wer passt darauf auf?

No more killing for the countries
That you can't see from above
And you won't see any border
Dream with me of peace and love

Vom Mond aus betråchtet, a blaua Planet
so klan und zabrechlich, wer passt darauf auf?

You Should

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

You think you're so clever
by building a great wall
you blame the brave and honest
to win some votes in fall

Can't you see you're lucky?
just born apart from dirt
you don't need degrees
to rule with empty words

You should watch the stars
maybe then you learn to see
that longing just for power
is the poorest way to be
be thankful for your luck
that others can't await
omitt to win from hate

You should learn somehow
to feel thankfulness
and humiltiy
yes, you should

Would you want this wall
if you were caught outside?
Wouldn't you just try
to get somehow inside?

So don't preach too much water
if you drink all that wine
One day you'll ask yourself
if all you did was fine

How can I just dare
to put you into doubt
You should know by now
we are a growing crowd

We are watching stars
so we have learned to see
that longing just for power
is the poorest way to be
we're thankful for our luck
that others can't await
we just ignore your hate

We have learned somehow
to feel thankfulness
and humility
like you should

Beauties

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

I can not escape the beauties of this world.
Against all odds I know I am a part of all.
broken loves can 't cause my heart to lose its faith.
I watch all the stars and all the pain is getting small then after all.


I can not alude the beauties of this life.
Loss can't chase away my smiling confidence.
Despite bad news I keep my hopeful thankfulness.
Though I'm getting old I feel this couriosity and innosence.

Don't we live right now in the best one world we have?
We should learn the best is yet to be.
The universe reveals some short-term misteries.
All we need are open minds to see.

I thank for all friends and loves that crossed my life
and things we can learn from menkind's history
We're made from dust of stars and dust we'll be again
Until then I thank for all the beauties in this world that I could see.

Paradise

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

When she tried to eat forbidden fruits
Paradise was lost for all of us
At least some testaments say that
Do you believe in what they say?

Nowadays we receive secretly
letters from a place called paradise
it does exist for poor rich ones
taxes they prevent to pay

I don't care about their greedy style
When they earn millions they want billions then
They'll never see the smiles you smile
in secret moments just for me

Papers from a place called paradise
suggest that hidden money is the best
But I prefer a starry night
Paradise is yet to be

Paradise means to live now...

Weckaleitn

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

Da Wecka leitet imma friha
doch i bleib liegn und måch kann Riehra
Da neie Tåg entzückt mi kaum
I bleibat liab in dem Traum

I ziag die Deckn übas Haupt
Noch kurzes Dösn sei erlaubt
Noch kurz zruck in den Traum zu dia
in dem du låchst und i di gspia

Da Traum is klår und i was gånz genau
Wia bleibma zåmm und måchn heite blau
Wia fliagn und låchn und san gånz betört
Nua des Weckleitn stört

Zum Aufstehn fallt ma heit die Lust
Weil in då Årbeit wårtet Frust
I bleib im Traum und und mia geht's guat
weil du fliagst darin mit mir fuat

Da Traum is klår und i was gånz genau...

Da Wecka leitet imma friha
doch i bleib liegn und måch kann Riehra
I bleib im Traum und und mia geht's guat
weil du fliagst darin mit mir fuat

I bleib im Traum und und mia geht's guat
weil du fliagst darin mit mir fuat
I bleib im Traum und bin valiebt
a wenn's di vielleicht går nit gibt

Blues Brothers 2020 (The Blues Needs You and Me)

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

some are on a mission
on a mission just from god
to celebrate the blues
so they groove and sing a lot

they trade their Cadilac
for a brand new microphone
they try to find their brothers
'cause they cannot sing alone

The Lord works in mysterious ways
they ain't no country band
their mission is the blues
so they've got to make a stand
So close your eyes and try to see the light
The blues gets you and me

I am on a mission
on a mission just from god
to celebrate the blues
so I groove and sing a lot

I trade my Cadilac
for a brand new microphone microphone
I try to find you brothers
'cause I cannot sing alone

The Lord works in mysterious ways
I ain't no country band
my mission is the blues
so I've got to make a stand
So close your eyes and try to see the light
The blues gets you and me

Slow down now my dear old friend
I think you move to fast
let your sad things now behind, brother
they are just part of the past

won't you come to follow me
on this mission from god, now
we'll show the people there's a way
that they will survive somehow
'Cause the mission is the blues
and we all will see the light
we could reach some souls and hearts
we could make them feel allright
And we need you, you, you, you, you
the blues needs you and me

We are on a mission
on a mission just from god
to celebrate the blues
so we groove and sing a lot

we trade our Cadilac
for a brand new microphone microphone
we try to find you brothers
'cause we cannot sing alone

The Lord works in mysterious ways
we ain't no country band
our mission is the blues
so we've got to make a stand
So close your eyes and try to see the light
The blues gets you and me

Glow

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

I'm a lover
of the Earth and universe
I can feel time's getting terse
Would you join me
watching stars in the deep sky
catching starlight with the eye?

And this could be a good thing we should choose
And we would then forget about sad news
And we could then escape the hate they sow
And we'd live some magic moments in the flow
And then we would smile again, our hearts would glow

I'm a lover
of the mountains and the sea
and the love I feel for thee
Would you join me
walking high up to the sky
we would see the eagle fly

I'm a lover
of some songs that touch my heart
I prefer the sounding art
Would you join me
writing songs for evermore,
that the angels would adore?

We'd escape the hate they sow
We'd live great moments in the flow
And we would smile again, our hearts would glow

Under the Dome

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

I heard the angels sing one night
they played their trombone songs for you
the waves of sound under the dome
brought memories and comfort, too

I wished you'd been here
to share this all with me
I hope you could hear
the organ play for thee

I wonder where you are now
since you are gone I feel blue
And can you hear us somehow
singing for you?

I walk with Paul along the sea
the way you walked with mom last year
We count the swans around the mole
Your coffee bar causes a tear

I wish you were here
to share this all with me
I hope you can hear
the way we talk 'bout thee

I wonder where you are now
since you are gone I feel blue
And can you hear me somehow
singing for you?

I know you would smile with me
if you were here
I know we would be amazed
if you were here

I've found the stove prepared by you
with wood to light a flame of love
the heat brought smiles and memories, too
I know you watch us from above

I wish you were here
to share this all with me
I hope you can hear
this song I sing for thee

I wonder where you are now
since you are gone I feel blue
And can you hear me somehow
singing for you?

I heard the angels sing one night
they played their trombone songs for you
the waves of sound under the dome
brought memories and comfort, too

Your Friend

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

You think she is your friend
you think she's on your side
but you should see the hateful frown
when she stands behind you
You think she is your friend
you follow her advice
that brings you down and brings her up
you think she is your friend

You think she is your friend
you don't doubt about her
but you should see the jealous gaze
when you feel happiness
You think she is your friend
you still believe in her
but can't you see how hard she tries
that your life's worse than hers?

Oh, you'd be sweet
if you got rid of her
Oh, you' d be neat
if you left her behind

You thought she was your friend
she never had a life
instead she controlled yours and others
you left your man for her
you thought she was your friend
you did not trust in yourself
We could have had a mutual life
if you'd been free from her

Escape Velocity

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

attraction of another star
keeps me in orbits
'round a planet or the sun
I can't escape

You smile 'cause you know you're the sun
that keeps me caught with gravity
I can't escape
and I can't land.
No, I cannot escape
and I can't land.

No, I cannot escape
the gravity of you
I cannot exceed
escape velocity

You think I am not strong enough
for leaving your orbit and you
need some satellites
to play around

You think your attraction keeps me still
in such a stable orbit
all around yourself
that I can't leave
No, I cannot escape
and I can't land.

But have you heard
about the voyagers
they left the sun
by means of Jupiter

I'll build myself
another Saturn V
that boosts me to
escape velocity

And once I will escape
the gravity of you
I will once exceed
escape velocity

Fools

Music & Lyrics by Markus Lorber

Do we have dark matter and dark energy
or do we live in holograms?
Is there information on a black hole's surface
where our history is stored?
Are we really real, or are we all just fakes
living in a different truth?
Are we lost in just one two-dimensional world
projected to the 3D-space?

Oh, this could well explain
why we are acting just like fools
Oh, we have left the way now
where we let love and wisdom rule
Oh, this could well explain
why we are acting just like fools

I can not remember why went together
and why we left each other then
Did we realize the luck that we have had?
Were we too blind to keep the flame?

Shall I play a classic piece or shall I play the blues?
Shall I rhyme or not at all? Right here I 'd take some shoes
I wonder if we once will find another world,
which we could treat a little better than the old
I wonder if we once will find another world,
which we could treat a little better than the old
But after all I love the one we have
