Waiting for a change in the weather
I'm waiting for a shift in the air,
Could we get it together, ever
Hoping for your return
Hoping for your sweet, sweet return

Hello, is this heaven calling?
Hello, hello
Is somebody there?
She must be somewhere
And then she says
Hello, hello, hello
She's really an angel
She stands in the sunshine
She's closing her eyes
She's starting to dream
She's pulling the strings
She's dreaming a strange dream
Where nothing is grey
Then she takes me away
And she's pulling the strings
When she's playing with love

Hello, hello
She's playing with love
Hello, hello
She's playing with love
Hello, hello
She's playing with love
Hello, hello
Ah, she's playing with love
Hello, hello
She's playing with love
Hello, hello
She's playing with love

Counting, I count every second
And I'm standing
I stand in the rain,
I walk up that lane
Which leads to the sunshine
She stands in the sunshine
She's closing her eyes
Then she takes me away
And she's pulling the strings
When she's playing with love

Hello, hello
She's playing with love
Hello, hello
She's playing with love
Hello, hello
She's playing with love
Hello, hello
Ah, she's playing with love
Hello, hello
She's playing with love
Hello, hello
She's playing with love

This day's an invitation
And it's just for you
You've got a reservation
For the 17th of June
Open your eyes
And let the Sun break in for a while
There may be something
That you've never seen inside

Feel how your heart beats like a
Heavy machine
The sound of the traffic is like a
Silent dream

The dust in the park,
The exhaust from the cars
Ascends in that heated afternoon
You touch a sweaty body

Summer in Berlin
It's alright (it's alright)
The days feel so tired
From the lead in the air
And the fire in the skies
Life seemed to be a fault of grace
But it's okay
It gave you a kiss
In the middle of the crossroads

Feel how your heart beats like a
Heavy machine
The sound of the traffic is like a
Silent dream

The dust in the park,
The exhaust from the cars
Ascends in that heated afternoon
You touch a sweaty body

Summer in Berlin
It's alright (it's alright)
The days feel so tired
From the lead in the air
And the fire in the sky
Life seemed to be a fault of grace
But it's okay
It gave you a kiss
In the middle of the crossroads

Summer in Berlin
Summer in Berlin
It's alright (it's alright)
The heat of the sun
Which is stored in the pavement
Feels so fine
Here stands the innocent
And there it comes oh so wild
That's when you're longing
For a summer by the wall

Summer in Berlin
Summer in Berlin
It's alright (it's alright)
It's a summer in Berlin
The heat of the sun
Which is stored in the pavement
Feels so fine
It's a summer in Berlin
Here stands the innocent
And there it comes oh so wild
It's a summer in Berlin
That's when you're longing
For a summer by the wall
It's a summer by the wall

Winter's cityside, crystal bits of snowflakes
All around my head and in the wind
I had no illusions that I'd ever find
A glimpse of summer's heatwaves in your eyes
You did what you did to me
Now it's history I see
Here's my comeback on the road again
Things will happen while they can
I will wait here for my man tonight
It's easy when you're big in Japan

When you're big in Japan, tonight
Big in Japan, be tight
Big in Japan, where the Eastern sea's so blue
Big in Japan, alright
Pay, then I'll sleep by your side
Things are easy when you're big in Japan
When you're big in Japan...

Neon on my naked skin
Passing silhouettes
Of strange illuminated mannequins
Shall I stay here at the zoo
Or shall I go and change my point of view
For other ugly scenes
You did what you did to me
Now it's history I see
Things will happen while they can
I will wait here for my man tonight
It's easy when you're big in Japan

When you're big in Japan, tonight
Big in Japan, be tight
Big in Japan, oo the Eastern sea's so blue
Big in Japan, alright
Pay, then I'll sleep by your side
Things are easy when you're big in Japan
When you're big in Japan, tonight
Big in Japan, be tight
Big in Japan, oo the Eastern sea's so blue
Big in Japan, alright
Pay, then I'll sleep by your side
Things are easy when you're big in Japan
When you're big in Japan

When you're big in Japan, tonight
Big in Japan, be tight
Big in Japan, oo the Eastern sea's so blue
Big in Japan, alright
Pay, then I'll sleep by your side
Things are easy when you're big in Japan
When you're big in Japan

I am an emigre
I write to Germany
In foreign words
A tongue of actuality
Coated in grey gloves
To Germany with love
A war between the wars
To Germany with love

I am an emigre
I write to Germany
In foreign words
A tongue of actuality
Coated in grey gloves
Coated in grey gloves
To Germany with love
To Germany with love
A war between the wars
A war between the wars
A war between the wars
A war between the wars

Triumph over by-gone sorrow
Can in unity be won
Let them all persue this purpose
'Til reality is gone
I am an unexpected spy
From the outside of my eye
Translate it first then comprehend
I'm here indeed but there I stand

I write to Germany
I write to Germany
To Germany with love
Germany with love
I write to Germany
I write to Germany
To Germany with love
Germany with love

This is the turn of colours
All real but still unseen
There is no more decision
'Cause there's too much in between
Let us build a nightmare nation
Learn and work as never yet
That this cold new generation
Faith in its own fears beget

Here comes the modern rat
Here comes the terror-squad
Ours is the salt of wisdom
Here we come all dressed in black
From the ruins risen slowly
To the future turned we stand
Flourish in this blessing glory
Flourish, German fatherland

I write to Germany
I write to Germany
To Germany with love
Germany with love
I write to Germany
I write to Germany
Germany with love
Germany with love
I write to Germany (I write to Germany)
I write to Germany (I write to Germany)
I write to Germany (I write to Germany)
I write to Germany (I write to Germany)
To Germany
I write to Germany (I write to Germany)
I write to Germany (I write to Germany)
I write in Germany

I hear those voices on the radio
I switched it off because she told me so
She's an investigator
She's like an elevator
Nobody told me we'd be all alone
You know
Somewhere my friend he'd left me
In that red light zone
You know
She said: I've seen your deepest secrets, son
They're just as lightning
In the look of your eyes

I said: I want you, baby,
I said: I want some more
I said: I never ever felt it like that moment before
She's an assassin,
She's melting steel in my heart
But I long for more.
She said: I want your body,
She said: I want your soul
She said: A fallen angel takes it but she'll never let go
She's an invader
She's from another world
But I beg for more and more

She's raising feelings cutting like a knife
She's pouring fire into my liquid life
There's no escaping from her mysteries,
She gives my kisses of the strangest kind

She says: I know you'll like it,
So come over here
She says: Just let that rhythm filter
Through your body, dear
And then she...
She always did it and she always will
She'll stay that hunter
'Till the end of time

I said: I want you, baby,
I said: I want some more
I said: I never ever felt it like that moment before
She's an assassin,
She's melting steel in my heart
But I long for more.
She said: I want your body,
She said: I want your soul
She said: A fallen angel takes it but she'll never let go
She's an invader
She's from another world
But I beg for more and more

I said: I want you, baby,
I said: I want some more
I said: I never ever felt it like that moment before
She's an assassin,
She's melting steel in my heart
In my heart...
In my heart!
In my, in my, in my heart...
In my heart...
In my heart...
In my heart...
In my heart...
In my heart...
I said: I want you, baby,
In my heart...
Never ever felt it
In my, in my heart...
Like that moment before
In my, in my heart...
She's melting steel in my heart
In my, in my heart...
Like that moment before
In my, in my heart...
In my, in my heart...
Never ever felt it
In my, in my heart...
Like that moment before
She's melting steel in my heart
She's melting steel in my heart

Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while
Heaven can wait, we're only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don't have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music's for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders, we're getting in tune
The music's played by the, the mad men

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever? Forever young

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later, they all will be gone
Why don't they stay young?

It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
Youth's like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures couldn't happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?

He's in the mood to touch the fire
He's in the mood to touch everything you are
He's in the mood to touch the fire
Touch the fire, touch the fire

Jacky's locked in a silent dream
He's watching movies on the TV-screen
He feels unsteady lights a cigarette
He's getting mellow in his cabinet
In his cabinet

Oh Jacky, when everything goes wrong
Get ready, for you've got to be so strong
It's so supersensual, so sentimental
Dial that cipher in your tears
The number to the golden years

You've got to touch the fire
Wake up, little boy
You've got to play with fire
Wake up
You've got to touch the fire
Wake up, little boy
You've got to play with fire
You've got to play with fire

Jacky hears it, is it her or not?
His eyes are burning
'Cause the brain's too hot
He's sitting calmly on a swivel chair
There's something coming from the upper stairs
From the upper stairs

Oh Jacky, when everything goes wrong
Get ready, for you've got to be so strong
It's so supersensual, so sentimental
Dial that cipher in your tears
The number to the golden years

Oh Jacky, when everything goes wrong
Get ready, for you've got to be, you've got to be so strong
It's so sensual, so sentimental
Dial that cipher in your tears
The number to the golden years

Oo, Jacky
Now listen to me Jacky
You were always so lonesome in that quiet lonely house
High on the hill
Oo, Jacky
Just come
Come and meet me
You know where and we'll take a nice holiday
Back in the old, old days
Oo, Jacky
Of happiness

When everything goes wrong
Get ready, for you've got to be so strong
It's so sensual, so sentimental
Dial that cipher in your tears
Dial that cipher in your tears
In your tears
In your tears

. . .


It's a trick of my mind
Two faces bathing in the screenlight
She's so soft and warm in my arms
I tune it into the scene
My hands are resting on her shoulders
When we're dancing away for a while
Oh we're moving, we're falling
We step into the fire
By the hour of the wolf in a midnight dream
There's no reason to hurry
Just start that brand new story
Set it alight, we're head over heels in love
Head over heels

The ringing of your laughter
It sounds like a melody
To once forbidden places
We'll go for a while
The ringing of your laughter
It sounds like a melody
To once forbidden places
We'll go for a while

It's the definite show
Our shadows resting in the moonlight
It's so clear and bright in your eyes
It's the touch of your sighs
My lips are resting on your shoulder
When we're moving so soft and slow
We need the ecstasy, the jealousy
The comedy of love
Like the Cary Grants and Kellys once before
Give me more tragedy, more harmony
And fantasy, my dear
And set it alight, just starting that satellite
Set it alight

The ringing of your laughter
It sounds like a melody
To once forbidden places
We'll go for a while
The ringing of your laughter
It sounds like a melody
To once forbidden places
We'll go for a, go for a while

. . .


Baby, baby
Ooooh, what do I do?
Playing my tune for you
Just to get you in the mood
Everybody's going to Hollywood
Aah, you're driving me mad
But I'm smiling to the crowd instead
A lot of money is at stake, this is a hit and that's a fake

This is what you mean to me
This is what they all should see
Make a make up in a foolish style
Telling the truth by making a big lie

When I come, I come but nothing's at ease
Breaking up the whole is a modern disease
Maybe you think tomorrow's just a joke
It's a joke after joke after joke after joke

My loooove
Everything's an interview
And nothing's really new
And everybody's looking for clues and you know what to do with a clue
My love
Get ready for the show
They're waiting and they will never go oh oh
This night is just a go...
And it's only for show

Dig that deal and be a millionaire,
Drinking cocktails in the stratosphere,
Getting jet lagged with my business friends,
In these supersonic wonderlands

There's a shadow on the graphic display,
First he's smiling then he's fading away
Maybe he thinks tomorrow's just a joke
It's a joke after joke after joke after joke

My loooove
Everything's an interview
And nothing's really new
And everybody's looking for clues and you know what to do with a clue
My love
Get ready for the show
They're waiting and they will never go oh oh
This night is just a go...
And it's only for show

My love
Everything's an interview
And nothing's really new
And everybody's looking for clues and you know what to do with a clue
My love
Get ready for the show
They're waiting and they will never go oh oh
This night is just a go...
And it's only for show
Get ready, get ready, get ready
And it's only for show
Get ready, get ready, get ready
And it's only for show
Get ready, get ready, get ready, get ready

Yeah
Get ready for the show!!

. . .


Yeah! Get ready for the show

This is the time, now gimme that beat
Feel how the rhythm grips your feet
Kitty baby, take my hand
She's like a devil, heaven sent
I'm in her arms and she's in mine
Maybe we make the film on time
Sitting in the 15th row
Oh baby, baby, I love you so

We are the jet set society
We are the jet set and that means liberty, liberty
The jet set society
We are the jet set set, we are the jet set set
Society

We're on the run, we know where to go
We got the tickets for the midnight show
These nights are burning out so fast
Hop on the beam, you won't be last
The Russians seem to be that way
We love them like we love D. Kaye
We need no money, we get it for free
We are the high-high-high society

We are the jet set society
We are the jet set and that means liberty, liberty
The jet set society
We are the jet set set, we are the jet set set
Society

We are the jet set, hop on the beam
We are the jet set, hop on the beam
We are the jet set, hop on the beam
We are the jet set, hop on the beam
Hop on the beam

Shine on, society, shine on, liberty
Shine on, luxury, shine on, society

Streets are full of love and fear
This could be the final year
Enrico's dead but still okay
We dance the streets, feeling well
If she's a liar, I'm her lover
If she's a priestess, I'm her cover
If she's a lady, I'm her man
If she's a man, I'll do what I can

We are the jet set society
We are the jet set and that means liberty, liberty
The jet set society
We are the jet set set, we are the jet set set
Society

Let's go to the moon
