GOLDEN CHAINS (TINTENFISH)

CUTIC / STAUDINGER



Don´t need a golden ring
To love you
Don´t need that golden sign
Don´t wanna make you mine
Just mine

No I don´t want
I don´t want golden chains

Don´t want no golden chains
For that´s got nothing to do
Don´t want no golden chains
With the love ´tween me and you
Don´t want no golden chains
And I don´t care
Don´t want no golden chains
´bout any neighbourhood

No possessions no expectations
Undermine our love
Prepared kind of reactions
Only violate our hearts

No I don´t want
I don´t want golden chains

Don´t want no golden chains
No predeterminations
Don´t want no golden chains
Just let it flow, just let it be
Don´t want no golden chains
For love can only grow
Don´t want no golden chains
If it´s got the chance to be free

Don´t want no golden chains
Don´t want a golden ring
Don´t want no golden chains
On my finger
Don´t want no golden chains
I´m not into jealousy
Don´t want no golden chains
That burning fever
Don´t want no golden chains
If you want insurance
Don´t want no golden chains
I´m not the one for you
Don´t want no golden chains
But if you let me be me
And I let you be you
Don´t want no golden chains
You´ll see what love can do
Don´t want no golden chains
What love can do
Don´t want no golden chains
What love can do

WHAT HAPPENED and all ()

Cutic / Linder / Staudinger



ANY TIME
(LINDER / STAUDINGER)

Any time
We take the chances, baby
Any time
You take my hand, baby

You come along dear
With your devil shining eyes
Stretch out your arms at me
Make me lost in your smile

Any time
You reach out for me
Any time
You´re so hot I see

Making love with you is like
Climb a mountain high
Sweat shimmers on our skins
In the candle light

Your skin´s so soft and warm
As smooth as it can be
Whenever you are in my arms
I dig in you
And you dig in me

Just a moment
Just a moment of love
Nothing else can ever be like that
Making love, making love just love
Is kind of a celebration act

Your skin´s so soft and warm
As smooth as it can be
Whenever you are in my arms
I dig in you
And you dig in me

Just a moment
Just a moment of love
Nothing else can ever be like that
Making love, making love just love
Is kind of a celebration act



SMALL TALK
(LINDER)

Small talk small talk
Small small
Small talk small talk

I´m standing around
the bench
Bubble my words
They don’t make no sense
Well I´m
Tryin´ to fill
The lack of friends
That meaningless gossip
It never ends

Small talk small talk
Small small
Small talk small talk

Hey,
I won´t talk no more
Hey hey,
I won´t talk no more
No
I won´t talk no more,
no more, no more
I said
No, no
I won´t talk
I don´t wanna talk no more

Small talk small talk
Small small
Small talk small talk



HOW CAN I KNOW
(LINDER / STAUDINGER)

Yeah sometimes
It´s not that easy
Bad bad vibes
Fillin´ the air
Unspoken words
A sigh of despair
Lifted shoulders
Aren´t really fair

How can I know
What´s in your head
How can I know
If you don´t tell

Unheard voices
Hangin´ in the air
Downcast eyes
Lookin´ nowhere
What did I do
What did I do
To bring you down
You know how much
I love you
So what´s your doubts

How can I know
What´s in your head
How can I know
If you don´t tell
How can I know
Why you´re looking so sad
So sad, girl
How can I know
It´s driving me mad



BOOGALOO
(CUTIC / LINDER / STAUDINGER)

Gimme that fever
Boogaloo time, yeah
Gimme that fever
Boogaloo time, yeah

Down near Verona
I´ve seen the
Number-one boogie act
There was a dancer
At least three times my weight

Like a bull in
A bull in a rodeo
When he starts movin´
He never stops

Three-fifty pound
Arollin´ and ashakin´
Slightly ´bove the ground
I thought the stage´s abreakin´

Like a bull in
A bull in a rodeo
When he starts movin´
He never stops

He turned me on man
I couldn´t do a thing but dance
But he kept movin´
The time I was half dead

Like a bull in
A bull in a rodeo
When he starts movin´
He never stops



BURN THE UNIFORMS
(CUTIC / STAUDINGER)

I had a dream
Last night
Someone came
Said “it´s alright”
He said all soldiers
Of all armies
Lay down their arms
They stop to fight

I had a dream
The mighty in the world
They can say
What they want
Tell their armies
To go for war
Their orders
Won´t be heard

Burn the uniforms
all soldiers
Burn the uniforms
Burn the uniforms

I had a dream
All the missiles
Disappeared
Over night
Not one contract
Must be signed
To make an end
To all of the fights

I had a dream
The mighty in the world
They can say
What they want
Tell their armies
To go for war
Their orders
Won´t be heard

Burn the uniforms
All soldiers
Burn the uniforms
You won´t need
them anymore
Burn the uniforms
Let them go
Go up in smoke
Burn the uniforms
Burn the uniforms



MORNING SUN
(LINDER/STAUDINGER)

Woke up with troubles
In my head
Out in the streets
No one to meet
All I´m doing
Is wait for the day
Yesterdays problems
Are fading away
In the morning sun
In the morning sun

Hey, hey
In the morning sun
Life has just begun
Hey, hey
In the morning sun
Life has just begun

Down at the beach
The tide´s rolling in
Tasting the breeze
I forget everything
For a change
The dogs don´t bark
A sleepy town
Tries a new start
Hey, hey
In the morning sun
In the morning sun



WASTING TIME
(LINDER / STAUDINGER)

Wasting time
Hanging round in bars
Drinking wine
I never get enough
Getting high
Listening to the sound
Signs are high
I know I´m wasting time

Come on, Sam
Let´s get out of here
I feel it´s high time
Hey, ey, buddy
Don´t you feel
The same as me
We´re only wasting time

Lean on me
That I can lean on you
Give me strength
I´ll do the same for you
Hold on, Sam
We´d better leave now
Before we skate
Down on that
marble ground

Come on, Sam
Let´s get out of here
I feel it´s high time
Hey ey, buddy
Don´t you feel
The same as me
We´re only wasting time



EVOLUTION
(LINDER / STAUDINGER)

I hang around
Wasting my time
Bubbling words
Of small talk
For sure I wanted
To change so much
Not only burn the uniforms

I came back home
From far away
I knew
Something was wrong
My friends
What´d happened to them
But it was just the time
Going on

Sometimes I´m
Nothing but happy
Being me
Being alive
Then there´s times
When I´m all down
Heartsick paralyzed

But when I get up
And see the light
Of the morning sun
I know that
Any time
I am on my way
Going on, going on

It´s just part
in the evolution
all I do
all I say
a tiny part
in the evolution
but I know
I´m on my way

I´ve been in love
So deeply
With fever, you know
But golden chains
Are not made for me
How could you know

Sometimes I fell
So important
Think I´ve got
Something to say
Then I come down
Feet on the ground
And my size fades away
Fades away, fades away

It´s just part
In the evolution
All I do all I say
A tiny part
In the evolution
But I know
I´m on my way

It´s just part
In the evolution
And still I´m on my way

Martin Mayer uses AKG microphones an all tracks exclusively
Frankie stopped to sing
And Mike don´t wanna play
Luzy never rings
And Phil he went away

Mark has changed his number
No connection on the phone
TIFI changed the drummer
Louis is far from home

Harry´s got no job
I meet him here and there
Sam´s now in the jungle
And I, I´m in great despair

What happened to them
While I´ve been away

Charlie stopped his studies
He´s working in a bar
Sue is ever smiling
I think she´s deep in love

Joe told he is married
A child in his arms
Robbie started gambling
Lost, lost his brandnew car

Pete is in the army
Wearing a uniform
Bernie´s got no money
Tell me
Tell me what went wrong

What happened to them
While I´ve been away
