Track Name: Greetings from someone else
Greetings from someone else

The show is over the audience is gone
stuck in a lonely hotel room I’ve left all the lights on
I sit in the bathtub for sure I drank to much
my mobile phone is laughing at me - no I’m not drunk enough

But I still got my guitar and I’m still on the road
what else could one of the last good old men look for
maybe one day I’ll write a postcard so you should check your mail
cause a different man might send you greetings from someone else

The last chord’s played it’s time for curtain call
time to admit that this was really all
of course you’re not the first and you won’t be the last
and these were „only“ three more years that went by too fast

And I still got my guitar I’m still on the road
what else could one of the last good old men look for
maybe one day I’ll write a postcard so you should check your mail
cause a different man might send you greetings from someone else

And like the ink on the postcard the memories will fade
but I will always remember our time at the bay
I can’t call you avoid to meet you but don’t get me wrong
at the moment all that I can do is keep singing our song

Am I someone else?
Are you someone else?
Who became someone else?
Track Name: Some other day
Some other day

We all end up in the same old mess
even your life my friend is followed by death
how many times have you said:
„I’ll never drink that much again“
And what about this stupid thing they call love
it always end up with a broken heart
the road neath my feet is the only good thing
with my fingers on worn out strings

But you don’t have to say that this is not your way
I’ll be back on some other day

Hand me your lighter cause soon I’ll be gone
Just one more cigarette and one more boring song
This isn’t what it was expected to be
cause you’re too drunk to kiss that’s what they call destiny
I’m a lonesome rider on a lonesome road
I always travel with love but all on my own
I really like how fast your heart is beating in your chest
and the smile on your face asks: „don’t you need a rest?“

But I have to say that this is not my way
I’ll be back on some other day

Don’t blame me if I leave
I never said you meant nothing to me
But these chords are more trusty than you could ever be
and that is all that matters to me
