1: Nobody's Wife
(Anouk Teeuwe, Bart van Veen, Satindra Kalpoe)

I'm sorry for the times that I made you scream
for the times that I killed your dreams
for the times that I made your whole world rumble

for the times that I made you cry
for the times that I told you lies
for the times that I watched and let you stumble

It's too bad, but that's me
what goes around comes around, you'll see
that I can carry the burden of pain
'cause it ain't the first time that a man goes insane
and when I spread my wings to embrace him for life
I'm suckin' out his love, 'cause I, I'll never be nobody's wife

I'm sorry for the times that I didn't come home
left you lyin' in that bed alone
was flyin' high in the sky when you needed my shoulder

you're like a stone hangin' round my neck, see
cut it loose before it breaks my back, see
I've gotta say what I feel before I grow older

I'm sorry but I ain't gonna change my ways
you know I've tried but I'm still the same
I've got to do it my own way

It's too bad, but hey, that's me
what goes around comes around, you'll see
that I can carry the burden of pain
'cause it ain't the first time that a man goes insane
and when I spread my wings to embrace him for life
I'm suckin' out his love, I, I'll never be nobody's wife

It's too bad, but hey, that's me
what goes around comes around, you'll see
that I can carry the burden of pain
'cause it ain't the first time that a man goes insane
and when I spread my wings to embrace him for life
I'm suckin' out his love, I, I'll never be nobody's wife

2: Together Alone
(Anouk Teeuwe, Bart van Veen)

You grabbed my hand and twisted it, so you had your way
No need to compromise 'cause you'll find the right words to say,
and I'll give it half a chance

Alone together, all alone, together all alone

Alone no more, it's Wednesday night
Someone is gonna treat me right
No, not my man gets me this high
It's gonna be my neighbour at number 29

I think I'll pack my bags and I'll leave it all behind
I'm gonna leave it all behind
No need to compromise 'cause these are the right words to say
Give it half a chance

Alone together, all alone, together all alone

Alone no more, it's Wednesday night
Someone is gonna treat me right
No, not my man gets me this high
It's gonna be my neighbour at number 29

Alone no more, it's Wednesday night
Someone is gonna treat me right
No, not my man gets me this high
It's gonna be my neighbour at number 29

You know, I was talking to my neighbour at number 29
No, not my man, It's not my man who gets me high
You know it's funny,
Alone no more

3: It's So Hard
(Anouk Teeuwe, Bart van Veen)

I'm just thinkin' about the child in me,
That I sometimes feel inside
And I'm figuring out just what it is
That makes me feel so small

Is it you, that hurts me when I give myself
Every day and every night
Am I too blind to see that it doesn't work out
Did I really ask too much of you baby
Do you mean to tell me that's the way it is
Do you mean to say

It's all so hard, It's so hard
It's all so hard, It's so hard

As I search for an answer, I see the clear blue sky
And I know that you're the one to blame
And I feel so na´ve
When you say that our love to you was just a game
I dream, my dream, I'm sane, I'm insane
Oh, please don't, please don't speak to me that way
Do you mean to tell me that's the way it is
Do you mean to say

It's all so hard, It's so hard
It's all so hard, It's so hard
Damned it's so hard, why you're so hard
Why you're so hard, It's tearing me apart

4: The Other Side Of Me
(Anouk Teeuwe, Bart van Veen)

Do I really want to know myself
Do I want to see
Why I'm wonderin' every morning, who's it gonna be today

Staring in the mirror, come tell me, who's that under my skin
And what's the reason they're here for
Tell me what is my own true face
Tell me what is my own true face

But hey here I come
I'm the show's main attraction
I'm a beautiful creature
That's what I am, yeah that's what I am

But the other side of me
I can't explain why I've become
Negative as can be
I'm wonderin' where it's coming from
I know I can't do without it, sure makes me what I am
So I will never stop believin'
In that I love myself someday
In that I love myself someday

But hey here I come
I'm the show's main attraction
I'm a beautiful creature
Yeah that's what I am, Hey that's what I am

5: Pictures On Your Skin
(Frank Carillo)

There's gonna be a yellow moon tonight
Don't leave the light on
Beads of sweat running down my face
You can catch them with your tongue
Colours run up and down your body
Every time you move
Every time, every time
Every time you move

When I kiss the pictures on your skin
Make me shiver with the fire
Let me kiss the pictures on your skin

A pair of eyes that stare across the room watching you breathing
Magic signs scratched inside a heart
Filled with your name
Colours run up and down your body
Every time you move
Every time, every time
Every time you move

When I kiss the pictures on your skin
Make me shiver with the fire
Let me kiss the pictures on your skin

The reds, the blues, the greens and the greys
All bleed their colours through a sweaty haze
And we slide like a serpent on silky sheets and that twist and turn
Forever and ever and ever
Soft as a butterfly, stings like a bee
Soft as a butterfly, stings like a bee

Colours run up and down your body
Every time you move
Every time, every time
Every time you move

When I kiss the pictures on your skin
Make me shiver with the fire
Let me kiss the pictures on your skin

6: Sacrifice
(O. Bouman, S. van Amerongen)

Who's the one that makes you happy
Who's the one that always makes you laugh
Who's the reason you're smiling
And dragged you through these time, so rough

I was the one that made you happy
I was the one that eased the pain
But I'm the reason that you're crying now
My own tears scattered by the rain

You can sacrifice me
You can sacrifice me
You can set me free
You can be who you wanna be

Deeper than deep you took me on a trip baby
You shared your wildest dreams and more
You dare me to express my feelings to you
I never felt that need before

But suddenly you needed freedom
You felt the need to break free
You started drowning in your sorrow
You didn't wanna know I had the key

You can sacrifice me
You can sacrifice me
You can set me free
You can be who you wanna to be

You can sacrifice me, sacrifice me
You can be who you wanna
You can be who you wanna be

7: Fluid Conduction
(Barry Hay, George Kooymans)

I've been sleepin' all day
Slummin' all night in a 44 hour sedation
Since the day you cut me out of your life
The night I killed your patience

Always tried to lie to you
The truth is that I love you
I need you more than anything
Without you I discover, I'm a maniac and a menace
Headin' for destruction

Your lips, I miss your tears your hips your piss your blood
The way you function
Maybe I should thank some god for your amazing fluid conduction

It was max, the king of facts
He made me steal for your number
I promised not to tell on him
But you know me, I'm a sucker

Always tried to lie to you
The truth is that I love you
I need you more than anything
Without you I discover, I'm a maniac and a menace
Headin' for destruction

Your lips, I miss your tears your hips your piss your blood
The way you function
Maybe I should thank some god for your amazing fluid conduction
Your kiss, I miss your tears your fingertips my satisfaction
I swear that I could thank some god for your amazing fluid conduction

8: My Life
(Anouk Teeuwe, Bart van Veen)

I'm gonna get out of my shell
Try without anybody's help
To loose this heavy load
And get my life back on the road

I've seen the worst when I was down
Only loneliness I found
Now I'm climbing to the top
And I ain't never gonna stop

I'll carry on, though the road is long
I'm gonna get myself together
And I'll hold on, 'cause I am strong
Gonna try to make it better, baby

The rest of my life I'll take these chances
Time goes by so very fast
I'll share my fortune and my failure
'til there's nothing left

And if somewhere down the line
I'll find I'm running out of time
I hope to god that I can say
I made the best of every day

'Til then I'll carry on, 'though the road is long
I'm gonna get myself together
And I'll hold on, 'cause I am strong
I'm gonna try to make it better, baby

The rest of my life I'll take these chances
Time goes by so very fast
I'll share my fortune and my failure
'til there's nothing left

9: It's A Shame
(Anouk Teeuwe, Bart van Veen)

It's a shame, the rules change not the game
Such a shame, It's the same
Now everything is in vain
All in vain, it's such a shame

Could it be true, that there's nothing left to do
For me and you, can't be true
We all can't be such fools
Could life be so cruel
Could life be so cruel

Maybe, I don't even try fearing what I'd find
Guess I am a number on the line
Could you please tell me why
We're on the same line, and we're fallin' behind
on life

Life is great, I'm walking in the sun and everything is cool
Yeah it's true, there's so much we can do
It feels so right
Yeah, it's all right

Maybe, I don't even try fearing what I'd find
Guess I am a number on the line
Could you please tell me why

Baby, I don't even wanna try fearing what I'd find
Guess I am a number on the line
Could you please tell me why we're on the same line and
Fallin' behind
Fallin' behind on life

10: Time Is A Jailer
(Frank Carillo)

No one can hear me, 'cause no one is around
But I still hear your whisper in the dark
I know I can go, I know I can leave when ever I please
But time is a jailer for me

A face in the window, looking inside
But no one else sees it, I know
And now that you've found that the years have changed
What the ending will be
Time's just a jailer for me

I shut out the light
Alone in the dark
This time of night
Is the hardest part

I still hear the sound of your heels on the floor
I wait for the sound of your key in the door
But it's only the sound of nothing at all and so it must be
That time is a jailer for me
Time's just a jailer for me

11: Mood Indigo
(Barry Hay, George Kooymans)

A taste of breath, a kiss sweater than honey
Your eyes in a misty dream a million miles away
And in my ear you whisper my name
Just like in some old news flash
From light years ago

Van Dyke's on the slide trombone
Through the smoke of the party room
Your teeth like the ivory coast
Start singin' my favourite song
And it happen' to be mood indigo

Mood indigo
I just go weak when I hear mood indigo
Could last for weeks until I decide to wake up
Take off my make up

Holding on to my heart
Smokin' them downhill
In a room number thirteen
Tryin' to stretch my luck again
Down the corridor your footsteps echo against the wall
My man of mystery, my date with infinity
Tonight I'm gonna sacrifice, for the first time in my life
Make it all come back to me, like an old forgotten dream

Van Dyke's on the slide trombone
Through the smoke of the party room
Your teeth like the ivory coast
Start singin' my favourite song
And it happen' to be mood indigo

Mood indigo, I just go weak when I hear mood indigo
It could last for weeks until I decide to wake up
Completely lost in my mood indigo
