REAL TALES OF ILLUSION – The Blook (III)

REAL TALES OF ILLUSION – The Blook (III)

Many years later,

the man telling you this story

was out walking on a cold winter night,

thinking:

I just have to close my eyes to

go back and through in life and

now I am beginning to see that little boy again.

I may be a strange man, but if there is at least

another strange person like me

in every town and city of the world,

then there are a lot of strange people

on this earth.

This was a paradox of life that made everybody

strange in some way and every normal person

strange in another way.

When he returned home he found a note at his desk:

The meaning of music, of art, of entertainment

is to stop the time.... just for awhile,

so we all can go on living our own lifes.

Real Tales of Illusion - part II

Some stories must be told very slow. You know why? Because while some words come by themselves, like friends from nowhere, other words has to be looked for like a lover lost in a huge forest.

I was thinking for a long time, maybe a week (or more) how far that stick would take the little boy until he really understood how to handle it.

You know, something happened when he was 4 years old running around singing 'grameton, grameton, grameton'. And I think he got scared

The Blook: Real Tales of Illusion (part 1)

Real tales of Illusion -- Reason of Love

The Blook (part 1)

I want to tell you a story.

Once upon a time there was a 4 year old boy

who ran around with a little stick and sang:

"grameton, grameton, grameton".

Now, many years later I think I understand

"grameton" was the word for gramophone.

But you know, and you will not believe this,

it took him long time to understand why

this little blond guy was running around

with a stick, thinking the world was

the turning disc, and the stick a 'pick-up' -

and the only way for the boy to understand

what was going on out there in this

always turning, and evever changing world

was to sing 'grameton, grameton, grameton'.

In fact, it took him many many years and

a lot of different roller-coaster journeys of life

to grasp why he should start putting in

other words for 'grameton'

Corner of Love (daydream)

You were just a young woman when I first met you in the sun, but you grew older with each kiss and every time we laid down.

It was you and me and then came the world. We were hiding out in the corner of love.

You changed your style, you changed your face You changed your clothes, you changed your hair -

Still you couldn't change that perfect smile you showed me in the corner of love

We were running away from a fantasy world. We were escaping from deception into real life --

you put your fingerprints on my soul while we were hiding out in the corner of love.

But life is like our skin, neither black or white. Sometimes we have to work sometimes we even have to fight -

'cause emotions is just another sign of how close we can get when we're living in the corner of love.

Now I'm turning into a mellow man -- age is just a number but I think I understand:

Where there's a will there is always a way if you want to go on living in the corner of love.

Last time I saw you was from behind, a perfect symmetry with my arms around your waist -

Don't know what made me think about my mom and dad while we were swinging in the corner of love.

Did I tell you how much you mean to me? Did I say you're like an angel in a dark world?

I'll tell you whenever you come and go - you can always find me in the corner of love.

You were just a young woman when I first met you in the sun, but you grew older with each kiss and every time we laid down.

And if you change your plans and need a helping hand you can always find me humming in the corner of love.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EVERY DAY!

Late august, Late night - Hello, my name is Jan!

Early morning, Drizzling rain - I just came back from the war!

You sound so lovely, You seem so good. Our way of talking is So innocent and fresh.

But every time I end up crying As if something within was dying - Every little tear is just another Color of the fear I have inside.

So let us fly for a while - I’ve got so much to show and If it’s love I give it all, saying: Happy Birthday, everyday!

Some people run so fast ’cause they’re running into life While others walk so slow ’cause they’re running out of time.

Everyone like to be Someone else. Everyone like to be Somewhere else.

But every tiime we lie Something within will die - Every little tear is just another Color of the fears we have inside.

Just let us fly for a while - I’ve got so much to show and If it’s love I give it all, saying: Happy Birthday, everyday!

Hey Girl, You’re the reason of love! I thought I was a happy man Until you showed the sky.

Hey Girl, You’re the reason of love! A man shall do what a man shall do But I can change my plans.

So let me take you for a dinner To the People’s Republic of Heart. Let us spend a night In the United States of Body and Soul.

You sound so lovely You sing so good and Our way of talking is So innocent and sweet.

Every time we fly I cry when we reach the sky - Every little tear is just another color Of the happiness I feel inside.

So let us fly for a while - I’ve got so much to show and If it’s love I’ll give it all, saying: Happy Birthday, everyday!

PAIN IN THE RAIN (Little Brother)

I was maybe eight or nine years old. I was lying next to you. I put a finger inside your little hand, you clenched your fist and smiled at me.

Daddy came around looked down and said: If you can't live he'll go to church and tell the priest there is no God. I could feel the pain in the rain in his eyes.

We're all here for such a short time but your smile is still a part of my soul - someone has to leave even before they got a chance to take their first steps or learn to give a hug... in the rain.

Then one day your heart couldn't take it more. You had your last scream in daddy's arms I still remember what kind of weather it was when they came home and said you were gone.

Mom and Dad just put your things away they didn't say a single word but silence was another big scream in the room when they cleaned up the dust that wasn't there ... in the rain. I could feel the pain in the rain in their eyes.

Life and death is around us all the time, people come and go and disappear. Someone has to leave even before they got a chance to take their first steps or learn to give a hug.

You were here for such a short time but your smile is still a part of my soul. You had to leave before you even got a chance to take your first steps or learn to give a hug.

If you were here I could have told you I had that same feeling once again many years after you were gone. I was sitting at a train station coming home to bury mom.

Now she is lying next to you, on the other side is dad. I can't put my finger in your hand, i just rest my palm upon your stone and feel the pain in the rain in my eyes.

We are here for such a short time people come and go and disappear someone has to leave even before they got a chance to take their first steps or learn to give a hug.

Still I can see the smile in your face as a gift every second gives while we're alive. Your heart is still a part of the memories I have, the memories that made me to what I am.

I was maybe eight or nine years old. I was lying next to you. I put a finger inside your little hand, you clenched your fist and smiled at me.

THE MANY PHASES OF THE MOON

Knowing you is like a journey through a landscape without a map - Don’t know where I’m going, Cause I don’t know where you are.

One day you’re like an angel, the next day you’re gone - You’re traveling with the rising sun As I see the many phases of Moon.

If you hurt, I’ll comfort you. If you cry, I’ll wipe your tears. If you fall, I hold you. If you’re just you, I still love you, The way you are.

Once I dreamt you were in Berlin - You tried to reach me for a date. Tonight I dreamt you were in Paris, I scared you off some way -

I say: We’re like uncut diamonds polished by the twists of Fate, but I don’t know where I’m going, 'cause I don’t know where you are.

Restless me and restless you. Restless day and restless night. If you fall, I hold you. If you’re just you, still love you, For the way you choose.

Growing up is almost like growing down - First the sky is the limit, Then you understand -

Knowing life is like a journey through a landscape without a map. We don’t always know where we’re going, we better start being where we are.

If you fall, I hold you. If you hurt, I’ll comfort you. If you cry, I’ll wipe your tears. If you’re just you, I still love you, Through the many phases of the Moon.

If you hurt, I’ll comfort you. If you cry, I’ll wipe your tears. If you fall, I hold you. If you’re just you, I still love you, The way you are.

DON'T GIVE IN!

When the wind is changing, and Blowing right into your face; When you smile is frozen, and Your heart beats out of pace;

When the lights are gone, and You want to run away; When your head is empty, and You don’t know what to say.

Don’t give in. Don’t give in It’s just a change of skin.

Don’t give in Don’t give in It’s just your second skin.

When the water is gone, and You’re like a fish on dry land; When your skin cracks up, and You burn like glass in the sand.

When words are cheap, and Trust has turned into rust; When you lost your dream, and They say true love is a sin.

Don’t give in. ... Don’t give in It’s just a change of skin.

Don’t give in Don’t give in It’s just your second skin.

When the stocks are falling, false prophets are calling for another rain; When you feel like dying and can’t think about anything else but your own pain.

When the wind is changing, Blowing right into your face; When you smile is frozen, and Your heart beats out of pace;

Don’t give in. Don’t give in It’s just a change of skin.

Don’t give in Don’t give in It’s just your second skin.

SHINE!

We don't cry! We don't fight! We just fly - We feed on light!

You're my engine, you're my guardian angel. I don't drown in tears when you're gone. Don't sit down and wait for you to come, just go on and write my little T-shirt lyric-songs.

You keep me away from sinking, you keep me away from shrinking. I ain't gonna stop this feeling, I'm almost floating below the cealing.

'cause you make me feel so happy, make me feel so happy happy. One doesn't have to live together, I still wanna live for ever. You make me feel so crazy, shining like the rising sun. In the darkness you're like a distant star one can almost feel your thoughts from afar, 'cause you SHINE!

Do or die! Sink or swim! Shrink or spin! Loose or win!

You're my engine, you're my guardian angel. I don't drown in tears when you're gone. Don't sit down and wait for you to come, just finding my way out of my own exile.

'cause you make me feel so happy, make me feel so happy happy. One doesn't have to live together, I still wanna live for ever. You make me feel so crazy, shining like the rising sun. In the darkness you're like a distant star one can almost feel your thoughts from afar, 'cause you SHINE!

-- you're so Cute ;)

THE BEACH

So many people, so many dreams. So many songs, so many nights. So much noise no silence in between.

Let’s go down to the beach again Let’s go down and listen to the sea. Let’s go down to the beach again. -- Go down and talk the ones we can’t see anymore.

Wish I could take all the longing you sometimes feel. Wish I could carry all your loneliness before sleep. But if we lean too much on each other someday everyone will fall, so I just go on sharing what I feel inside.

Let’s go down to the beach again Let’s go down to the place from where we came. Let’s go down to where we will return.

There’s no other one in this world 'cause we’re all connected and IN A WAY I am your self. Still everyone one is waiting for the right word from their number one. We wait and wait, sometimes until the magic’s gone.

Let’s go down to the beach again Let’s go down and listen to the sea. Let’s go down to the beach again. -- Go down and talk the ones we can’t see anymore.

Wish I could take all the longing you sometimes feel. Wish I could carry all your loneliness before sleep. But if we lean too much on each other someday everyone will fall, so I just go on sharing the love I feel inside.

Let’s go down and listen to the sea. Let’s go down to the beach again. Let’s go down to the beach again. - Go down to where we will return.

Go down and talk. Everything’s changing from the minute we were born. Each second something coming each second something leave. We all change, until the day that we will die -

Let's go down. Love your life. No one can stop the flood. No one can stop your Love...

Traveling light

This dream is made of silver. This dream is made of stone. This dream is made of everything You can make up in your mind.

From the corner stones of an atom to the curved air of the universe, This dream was made for everyone, was made for you and me.

Traveling light Traveling light You can weigh your heart on the scales. You can fly away with the nightingales. Traveling light Traveling light.

From the stock brokers at Wall Street to the submariners of the Russian fleet. From the book-keeper in Kabul to the derelict dogs in Istanbul.

From Harry’s Bar in Venice, to the spring time lovers in Paris. This dream was made for everyone, was made for you and me.

Traveling light….

First you fly on the white wing then you tip over to the dark side. Finally you end up somewhere in between,

dancing like a ballerina on the razor’s edge of love. You just give, and give, and give and don’t ask for anything in return.

Traveling light Traveling light You can weigh your heart on the scales. You can fly away with the nightingales. Traveling light Traveling light.

Okinawa Beach

Oh, these streets are full of dreams. These streets are full of hope, (but) I don’t like to walk here on my own. I just like to call you up, Just want to say hello - You’re so far away.

Imagine life Was like a dream. We could fly across the world. Imagine me Knocking on your door Taking you to the shores Of the Okinawa Beach

Sometimes I’m feeling like a tree, leaves are falling one by one. I’m getting closer to Where it all begun. So I whisper in your ear, There’s nothing left to fear - ‘Cause Two makes it better than only One.

Imagine life Was knocking on your door Saying: I’ve got a gift from the world. Imagine me With tickets in my hands, saying I will take you to the shores Of the Okinawa Beach.

I know it’s getting late But not to late to see - (that) Distance is just a ghost in my mind So takes this little heart of mine Take this innocence and trust - There’s only one of your kind.

Imagine dream Was knocking on your door, saying: We can fly across the sea. Imagine me Standing on the shore, saying: I want to bury my heart At the Okinawa Beach.

Oh, these streets are full of dreams. These streets are full of hope, (but) I don’t like to walk here on my own. I just like to call you up, Just want to say hello - You’re so far away.

Imagine life Was like a dream. We could fly across the world. Imagine me Knocking on your door Taking you to the shores Of the Okinawa Beach.

DANCE LITTLE SISTER, DANCE!

I’ve been sitting by the water For I don’t know how long, But long enough to understand What’s right and wrong.

Sometimes I feel I’m like a mirror For the changes of your mind But when I look into your eyes I see my kind of girl.

La la la la la la .. In the rain

I’m not going to ask myself Why I like you so much. Doesn’t matter where you are in world I can still feel we’re in touch.

You know you’re the only one You know you got a special place. You don’t have to worry I will never ever let you loose face.

La la la la la la .. In the rain

Dance little sister, dance! Dance until the day is gone! Dance little lady dance! You make my soul so strong. Costumes changes, jump and scream - You’re gonna turn every night into Halloween. Dance little sister dance. You make my soul so strong.

Everyone has something to say what you’re going to feel and do But they are they, and you are You There’s nothing they can do.

They can’t change the water. They can’t stop the flood. They can’t stop the tango Rushing through your blood.

La la la la la laaa

Dance little sister, dance! Dance little sister dance! You make my soul so strong.

Buddha Bar - true tales of illusion

How can you loose someone you never had? How can you say good-bye when you never met? I’m in the Buddha Bar, ‘ thinking of You and My True Tales of Illusion.

No one likes to be left behind, when the train starts moving to another town. I’m sitting here with my feather-light heart -- waiting for to move on to another dream. I’m in the Buddha Bar, thinking of You and My True Tales of Illusion.

Someone is out there waiting for You, someone with whom You can share a day or two: a stroll in the park, a night at the movies, hand in hand, while you shut out the world for a while … While I’m in the Buddha Bar, thinking of You and My True Tales of Illusion.

When I go into the Buddha Bar I lose my senses and have it all coming out. Everyone I miss, everyone that’s gone, everyone I love. - I burn a candle for my mom. Yes, everyone I miss, everyone that’s gone, everyone I love. - I burn a candle for my dad.

I don’t feel ashamed for what I see inside myself. I somehow feel sad that I may not get it all. Still I’m happy, as a man can be that I’m allowed in to The Buddha Bar with My True Tales of Illusion.

EMBRACE

When I woke up this morning I saw your face was gone. I tried to enter sleep again In case you would reappear.

You said you were from Saturn, I said it was too cold. You said you like the rings and Came here to ‘fire wood’.

I met you in the forest where Snakes were all around. You landed in a meadow With your feet first on the ground.

I asked if it did hurt to fall. You smiled and turned around, Jumped up in an oak-tree and Said you flew down here by yourself.

Life is like a dream, but Dream is not like life - You fly and fall and Swim in silver-lakes. Changes takes place, but

Still you’re here Here, here, here - and Also there.

When I wake up in the morning I see your face is on my wall - I’ll wait for you to come down And join me in bed.

I hold you in my arms. I’ll never let you go. You play the lead-role in my daydream - You came there to stay.

Life is like a dream, but Daydream is not like life - You cuddle up in wishes You like to turn real.

Changes takes place, but You never understand - You fade away and sink Into another space.

Still you’re here, Here, here, here - and Also there.

When I wake up in the morning I still marvel how we met. That place was almost like a nightmare We can’t live without.

We opened up another room, A space where time disappeared. Now I don’t hesitate too call it Another kind of love.

This is almost like a dream where One can feel more real than real - Hugs and kisses, Tears and joy.

Changes takes place, but You never really know if You will drown and sink into Another space.

Still I am here … Here, here, here - and Also there.

When I woke up this morning I saw your face was gone I tried to enter sleep again In case you would reappear.

WHERE DID YOU GO?

Where did you go? Where did you go? I’ve been looking all over - where did you go?

You're still in my heart, all the time - I'm just telling you to trust.

The world is spinning wild. The world is going mad.

Going to to blow up like a ballon in the sky.

So where did you go? Where did you go? I've been looking all over - where did you go?

Men shall not cry, men shall be strong. I've been looking over - where did you go?

Friends don't come easy. Love's like the sea: When it's gone and done you're like a fish on dry land.

So where did you go? Where did you go? I've been looking all over - where did you go?

TRUST

You say: I put a smile on your face. I say: You blew a new wind into my heart. You say: Like to talk more, and more and more. I say: Some times it takes a White Lie to get the gift of life.

Keep that Red Ribbon on for Life & friendship, even if you're gone. Keep that Red Ribbon on -- when I give you this White Song Of trust.

This world comes in many different shapes. God never judged anyone with an open heart. This life is full of mystery, full of magic, full of love -- only men with crippled brains see a wolf where there is a lamb.

Keep that Red Ribbon on for Life & friendship, even if I’m gone Keep that Red Ribbon on -- when I give you this White Song of Trust.

When you say good-night and rest among the stars I look upon the sky and sing this song for you. When you wake up and hurry into Life I touch my wrist and whisper in your ears:

Keep that Red Ribbon on when I give you this White Song It’s for Life & friendship, until I’m gone. So I give you this White Song Of trust.
