Track Name: A Toast to Friends
As I sit here and raise a glass,
To all I've known as friends
Most have have moved on, all've come and gone, A few, already dead

To the friends I've had forever and the many who've faded away
To those I'll meet tomorrow
And to those we won't see again...

I've no regrets, a life well lived
In part to most of these friends
Most have moved on, It's a bitter sweet song
That all roads come to an end.

To those who worked beside me,
To the teachers who showed me the world
My mates in the band, the forgotten names of all the beautiful girls...

As we grow old, collecting the years
And sing the songs that we made
I sit here and raise a glass to all I've know as friends

To all my lifelong friends

To all our long gone friends
Track Name: The House Where I was Born
The fight is finally over and this soldiers coming home
I’ve been dreaming of my sweetheart and the house where I was born

I may look a little older and I’ve worn away both shoes
It’s taken too much precious time to come back home to you

Will She still Love Me After All this time?
Will She Still Love Me? Say she will be mine.

I’ve been traveling with a few more hours to go
Ill be dancing with my sweetheart
In the house where I was born

There’s a long road behind me
Oh the stories I can tell
Now I see the Church Tower / I can hear her ringing bells

Will She still Love Me After All this time?
Will She Still Love Me? Say she will be mine.

I can smell the fields of blue from the outer edge of town
My hands begin to sweat / And my heart, strongly pounds

I’ve been traveling with a few more steps to go
Ill be dancing with my sweetheart In the house where I was born
Ill be dancing with my sweetheart In the house where I was born
Ill be dancing with my sweetheart

In the house….where I was born

GERMAN TRANSLATION:

In meinem Geburtshaus

Der Krieg ist endlich vorbei und die Soldaten kehren heim.
Ich habe geträumt von meiner Liebsten und meinem Geburtshaus

Ich mag ein wenig älter aussehen und ich habe beide Schuhe verschlissen.
Es hat so viel kostbare Zeit gebraucht, um heim zu kommen zu dir.

Wird sie mich noch lieben nach all dieser Zeit ?
Wird sie mich noch lieben? Sag, dass sie mein wird sein.

Ich bin gewandert und habe nur noch wenige Stunden zu gehen.
Ich will tanzen mit meiner Liebsten In meinem Geburtshaus.
Es liegt ein langer Weg hinter mir. O was kann ich Geschichten erzählen
Nun sehe ich den Kirchturm Und kann die Glocken läuten hören.

Wird sie mich noch lieben nach all dieser Zeit?
Wird sie mich noch lieben? Sag, dass sie mein wird sein.

Ich habe den Duft von Blaufelden längst schon in meiner Nase.
Meine Hände werden feucht vom Schweiß Und mein Herz klopft leis.

Ich bin gewandert und habe nur noch ein paar Schritte zu gehen.

Ich werde mit meiner Liebsten tanzen Im Haus, wo ich geboren bin.

Ich werde mit meiner Liebsten tanzen Im Haus, wo ich geboren bin.

Ich werde mit meiner Liebsten tanzen Im Haus, wo ich geboren bin.
Track Name: Do You Believe?
Hold On, Hold On
Mother Mary will set you free

Stay Strong + Carry On
Out of the Darkness You Shall See

Do You Believe?
Do You Believe in something more?
All of the Differences she made with her life

Do You Believe?
Do You Believe in something more?
All of the differences we made with our lives.

So long, She held on for so long
Mother Mary will set you free
Mother Mary will set you free

Do You Believe?
Do You Believe in something more?
All of the Differences she made with her life

Do You Believe?
Do You Believe in something more?
All of the differences we made with our lives.

Do You Believe?
Do You Believe in something more?
