Das Album „Turning the Tide“ ist ein Projekt, dessen Produktion sich über einen längeren Zeitraum erstreckt hat.
2013 haben die Gesangsaufnahmen begonnen, doch das eigentliche Arrangement ist erst zwei Jahre später abgeschlossen worden.

Die Gesangsspuren sind zum größten Teil im Dubcity Studio B entstanden, wenige Spuren kommen aus kleineren Kelleraufnahmen, die anfangs nur der musikalischen Orientierung dienten.

Das Arrangement wurde sowohl im Dubcity Studio B, als auch – und zum größten Teil – im Dubcity Studio Atlantiz erstellt.
“Strange” und “Reality” wurden 2013 live in der Engel Lounge eingespielt.

1. Turning the Tide

I've never been good in
turning the tide
my thoughts..layed naked..in front of you
they were in my eyes

you said something 'bout being together
something that feels right when you are with me
but you ain't know nothing, have a boyfriend and don't care
about responsibilities

never thought I'd be the one
who's waiting on your call
knowing that he's the one
you will call for

uh, I keep on falling, falling
I keep on falling, falling for you
when I went with you my heart overflowed
now I'm standing in...in his shadow

You made me cross my limits
by intriguing me
so tell me how I could have secured my heart
from your beauty

still I can feel your lips
soft upon my own
knowing that you are
resting in his arms

uh, I keep on falling, falling
I keep on falling, falling for you
when I went with you my heart overflowed
now I'm standing in...in his shadow

tell me, that I wasn't your amusement
tell me, that I meant something to you
you know how to turn the tide
turn it right

uh, I keep on falling, falling
I keep on falling, falling for you
when I went with you my heart overflowed
now I'm standing in...in his shadow

ah, I keep on falling, falling
I keep on falling, falling for you
when I went with you my heart overflowed
now I'm standing in..

I've never been good in
turning the tide

2. New Beginning

it's a new begnning

it's usage that keeps us together
but actually we don't walk along beside
we know we won't cope another storm
time should come we separate our lives

life will go easy on us
if we admit not to stand in our ways

I can't hold you forever
even if I'd love to say I could
the day will fall we'll have to be parted
but then I'll know
it's a new beginning
it's a new beginning

we're exposed to opposing wind
that tries to stop our sailing
I always believed in that second chance
but there ain't no haven to soar in

life will go easy on us
if we admit not to stand in our ways

I can't hold you forever
even if I'd love to say I could
the day will fall we'll have to be parted
but then I'll know it's a new beginning

still I wonder were we are
I can't find us, we're just too far away
still I wonder were we are

I can't hold you forever
even if I'd love to say I could
the day will fall we'll have to be parted
but then I'll know
it's a new beginning
3. Reality

looking in a soldier's eyes
asking what he's fighting for
strange answers I don't get
about their content I'm not sure
then I wonder why

people don't run away
instead of keeping on to obey
I stand up, raise my voice
and I cry out loud that it's our choice

let's start with running away
before reality
takes us all away, away
let's start with running away
before reality
comes to take our lives, our lives away

frontiers keep us apart
society denies our love
intimidated, back to back
just those voices in our neck
but then I turn around

I stand up, I take your hand
and I'm begging you to pretend
that no one's here we're all alone
we're free to run away from home

let's start with running away
before reality takes us all away, away
let's start with running away
before reality
comes to take our love, our love away

and now that I hide in my reverie
I long for blue skies and for infinity
a place of tolerance and empathy
a save world for you .. and me

but it's just a dream, I'm still not free
still I'm captured in society
so I stand up, raise my voice
although no one's hearing any noise

let's start with running away
before reality
comes to take our love, our lives
and all our dreams away
all our dreams away
all our dreams away
all our dreams away
4. I Was Wondering

I was wondering
who you are and who I am
people talk a lot
but I don't understand

look into their eyes
read their minds
listen to the words they don't say

they don't wanna believe in you
they don't wanna believe in someone who
can't stop war, can't stop misery
who cannot be..what they want you to be

I was wondering
if you'll give this world the peace
people are dreaming of
and they beg for an their knees

why have boys to cry
because the priest forgets the pain
many years go by
but the priest goes on again

look into their eyes
read their minds
listen to the words they don't say

they don't wanna believe in you
they don't wanna believe in someone who
can't stop war, can't stop misery
who cannot be..what they want you to be

it's so easy to blame you
it's too easy to deny what's true
but I will never understand
why they don't know
that this world is in their own hands

they don't wanna believe in you
they don't wanna believe in someone who
can't stop war, can't stop misery
who cannot be..what they want you to be

they don't wanna realize
that they've got the might and have the choice
to change this world and stop misery
to become as free as we should be
to become as free as we should be
5. Childish Chasing

diving through the night
lights of the windows softly touching my eyes
straying in my mind
wit and her shape is what I idolize

I will follow her tonight

it's a childish chasing, no, I can't get enough
childish chasing, I'll scream it out loud
I can't help, hunting this dream
childish chasing, no, I can't get enough
childish chasing, I'll scream it out loud
I can't help, painting my fantasy

she is way too old
I know but still she's so beautiful
captured in my head
wit and her shape is what I won't forget

I will follow her tonight

it's a childish chasing, no, I can't get enough
childish chasing, I'll scream it out loud
I can't help, hunting this dream
childish chasing, no, I can't get enough
childish chasing, I'll scream it out loud
I can't help, painting my fantasy

night will go, but I
will find you, in my
dreams, when I'll come back
to fall asleep again

it's a childish chasing, no, I can't get enough
childish chasing, I'll scream it out loud
I can't help, hunting this dream
childish chasing, no, I can't get enough
childish chasing, I'll scream it out loud
I can't help, painting my fantasy
6. Taking You Wrong

when I first met you
I was sadly surprised
you wore chains that weren't yours
you'd never ask for advise

now you remain in silence when I
need your support the most
I can't solve your riddles anymore
I can't solve your thoughts

you said instead of making me weak
you'd be the one to make me feel strong
but I don't take your points anymore
I keep on taking you wrong
I keep on taking you wrong
I keep on taking you wrong

you have been a wild one to me
an absolute stranger
you made me think differently
and in my mind you linger

but now you remain in silence when I
need your support the most
I can't solve your riddles anymore
I can't solve your thoughts

you said instead of making me weak
you'd be the one to make me feel strong
but I don't take your points anymore
I keep on taking you wrong
I keep on taking you wrong
I keep on taking you wrong

just leave it, drop it and never mind
I'm just gonna leave everything behind
I don't wanna hear
I don't wanna know

'cause I don't take your points anymore
I keep on taking you wrong

you said instead of making me weak
you'd be the one to make me feel strong
but I don't take your points anymore
I keep on taking you wrong
I keep on taking you wrong
I keep on taking you wrong
7. Explain Yourself

can't believe that this is happening
tried to show you the way
but on this walk, I've lost my heart
and now I can't find it anyway

I know I'm not supposed to get involved
find myself wallowing in dreams of you
I know it's just a matter of time before
I await things that won't come true

but I don't need you to explain yourself
you don't owe me anything
all I ask you is to avert your eyes
while I go down
down on my knees
beggin' please, please, please

the more I try to make your wish come true
the more I give up from my heart
but I won't tell, I won't complain
I know I can't play another part

I'm sure that you'd feel saver in his arms
can see the desire in your eyes
so I betray myself
and try to help
by givin' advise (givin' advice)

but I don't need you to explain yourself
you don't owe me anything
all I ask you is to avert your eyes
while I go down
down on my knees
beggin' please, please, please

I can hear time whisper
I should leave for the sake of my heart
late at night I cry your name
for it to pale at day

but I don't need you to explain yourself
you don't owe me anything
all I ask you is to avert your eyes
while I go down
down on my knees
beggin' please, please, please
8. Strange

I wake up in the morning
and look at my knees
the feelings, they confuse me
and I don't know what this is

so I walk in the bathroom
stare in the mirror and
watch in that strange face
that I can't remember
is this me

no, no, no this is not the one I've met before
I don't know you anymore
no, no, no this is not the way I felt before
I don't know you anymore

I don't know what happened to me
no, I can't explain
I wonder if it remains like that
it's just funny 'cause I'm not the same

so I go out to clean my head
and walk through the park
I'm unable to figure it out
everything seems to turn to dark

so I walk to the park's lake
stare in the water and
watch in that strange face
that I can't remember
is this me

no, no, no this is not the one I've met before
I don't know you anymore
no, no, no this is not the way I felt before
I don't know you anymore

finally I know
something changed too much too fast
I can't explain how
but I know it's gonna be past
I should look forward
don't ignore it, don't deny
and if I'll think about it more than I could bear
I will never know why

no, no, no this is not the one I've met before
I don't know you anymore
no, no, no this is not the way I felt before
but I don't mind it anymore
9. Perfect Game

loneliness is faking a smile on my face
I'm about to believe it myself

snow-white world inside my chest but spring-green life around
walking on my lonely path where's no dream left to haunt

I don't know what is true or fake
I don't see any difference because my head plays
a perfect game

knowing I can't ask you to give up on your whole world
just to be with any naive girl

how I long to tell you that you're beautiful to me
how I wish to hear you say that you're all over me

I don't know what is true or fake
I don't see any difference because my head plays
a perfect game

and now I wonder why I should complain
I should wish that this is not the truth
cause everything that I can see is just the same
but I can't rely on anything but the thoughts of you

I don't know what is true or fake
I don't see any difference because my head plays
a perfect game
10. Remember Your Name

try to escape the day,
don't answer my phone,
no I, ..can't find a place,
where memories hold on

I should know that I've been gone too long
I was supposed to know, you were about to go, I should have held you in my arms
it was written in the wind that blew around my head,
but I didn't get the signs that I should have understood

now I knock down your favourite place,
I throw everything that you have left away,
I'll never sing your favourite song again,
but I'll always remember your name

my knees hurt
I bought flowers
hands full of dirt
tears fall on your stone

thought that I could handle it,
but I was wrong,
I know, ..stop talking about it ain't
no way to be strong

but everywhere people talk about things reminding me of you,
so I find myself in several places crying over you

still I tiptoe in the room when I come home late at night
'till tears remind heaven left nothing of you behind

now I knock down your favourite place,
I throw everything that you have left away,
I'll never sing your favourite song again,
but I'll always remember your name (never sing your favourite song again)
but I'll always remember your name (let me knock down your favourite place)
always remember your name (I need to knock down your favourite place)
always remember your name (I wanna always remember your name)
