E Gism
The thought that you believed in me,
Fism
I picked it up the minute you walked by
E Gism Fism
on a Saturday night (o-o)

E Gism
You seemed to shine like the sun and cry like the rain
Fism
The lonely days are all the same
E Gism Fism
I’ve been so uptight (yeah)
E Gism
The vessel’s prepared, I’m ready to explore
Fism
what‘s going on behind the hidden doors
E Gism
It’s takin’ me lightyears away
Fism
I‘ll be all right, I won’t go astray
E Gism Fism
no more, what for?
Fism Gism

A Gism
You’d see someday
Fism E Fism Gism
whatever wasn’t right
A Gism
The minute you walked by
Fism A Gism G Fism
it all looked so bright,
A Gism G Fism

solo 1

E Gism
I really had to stay away
Fism
afraid to end it all that day
E Gism
We were not ready for a true romance
Fism
You just wouldn’t fade away
E Gism Fism
I couldn’t let go (no-no)
Fism Gism

A Gism
And I’d see someday
Fism E Fism Gism
whatever wasn’t right
A Gism
The minute you walked by
Fism A Gism G Fism
it all looked so bright

Track Name: Starlight Of Our Dreams
Starlight of our Dreams

Clouds from distant seas
make our crops do well
Fill our dried up ditches
Tell us when you will come

Wind of treasure island
blow our bad times away
Warm, gentle breeze
show us where you came from

Sunshine of our hearts
climb on the horizon
Lighten up the days
Don’t be gone very long

All around the world
We can search for someone
Still, we wouldn’t find
a love so strong

Starlight of our dreams
paint the pitch-black sky
Brighten up the night
Tell us where we belong

E Fis G
In my childhood

there was an orchard

with trees full of apples

where we used to play
E Fis G
In this place
D
that only exists
G
in my memories
D
of those days
A A G
Well, I just have to wonder

why nature’s been replaced
G
by bricks and concrete,
A
gloomy and grey
A A G
Oh, I just have to wonder
A
why beauty fades away
G
wherever people
D
decided to stay
E Fis G
First came the factories
D
and then all the houses
G
For food on the table
A
the fruit couldn’t remain
E Fis G
It was fifty years ago
D
but I still remember
G
how tall the trees stood
D
right onto this day
A A G
And I just have to wonder
A
why nature’s been replaced
G
by bricks and concrete,
A
gloomy and grey
A A G
Oh, I just have to wonder

why beauty fades away

wherever people

I’m goin’ back to the days

The sea is calm, the sand is warm

The sun is shining on your hips

and no one can resist your charms

Track Name: Visions Of Paradise
Visions of Paradise

On my mind
Visions of paradise
You and I
swimming in a sea of light
Please don’t try to wake me up
Don’t make this wishful dreaming stop
and make this fantasy go by

Shiny lakes and sunny fields
as far as we can see
Healthy drinks and local food
is all we’ll ever need

A tender stream
is flowing through the street
The terrible ones
are nowhere to be seen

On my mind
Pictures of a thousand ways
You and I
disappear without a trace

Bright white clouds and clear blue skies
butterflies and bees
Wondering why we don’t get tired
of huggin’ all the trees

A colder current’s
flowing in the deep
for all the folks
who couldn’t stand the heat

On my mind
Visions of paradise
Please don't try to wake me up
Don't make this wishful dreaming stop
and make this fantasy go by
