We are the wind

It was the third morning since they had left their home
They started walking into the forest
They saw a lovely bird and they did follow it – just for one song
It landed on a roof, oh of a little house
the walls were made of bread and sugar windows
A candy paradise, a nagging hunger! They broke off a piece

“Nibble, nibble, little rat – it`s my house you`re nibbling at!”


We are the wind or the stormy weather, a soft and a passing breeze
that plays in the trees forever
We are no children, who have come to the sweetest heaven
We are just a passing breeze that plays in the trees forever


And they went on eating sweets – Well it was dangerous
And it made them want more – A craving like a curse!
They broke a piece of bread and grabbed a window- pane
It creaked and cracked
Suddenly that voice again from the inside of the house
Eerily, it frightened them and there was no way out
It sounded like a knife and left them terrified – Once more they lied:


We are the wind or the stormy weather, a soft and a passing breeze
that plays in the trees forever
We are no children, who have come to the sweetest heaven
We are just a passing breeze that plays in the trees forever

Cinderella

“No you will never go to the feast!
Are you mad? You can`t dance!
What would everybody think?
When I look at you all I see is dirt and dust”
You know how the story goes –
All alone after chore, very sad,
with ashes on her head she is begging now
standing at her mother`s grave


“My little tree, shake your branches and leaves!
Drop silver and gold down on me!
All I want is dancing and dreaming, admiring the prince
Could I be gleaming?”


Oh she is beautiful! What a dress, what a girl!
At the ball she is dancing with the prince
and with no one else – He is falling just for her
The next day of the royal feast –
He is waiting so long “will she come?”
She is standing at the grave for the second time
truly begging once again:


“My little tree, shake your branches and leaves! …


A dress much more splendid -As she enters the ballroom
the prince cannot hide it – he`s adoring her, too – yes
But soon she will have to leave -Just in time!
Suddenly all magic disappears

“Stop my dear! I wish you were here
Now I’ m thinking of a trick:
I will smear the stairs with pitch
I will do it secretly for the dream of you and me”
It`s the last day of the party  
At her mother`s grave again she`s begging:


“My little tree, shake your branches and leaves! …


All I`ve ever wanted is here in my heart and it calls
I cannot even pretend
This is more like my dream and I dream of secrets undone!”
True love!

And you know how the story goes – that the prince picked up her shoe
Many pretty ladies showed, tried the golden slipper, too
Cinderella`s dream came true -There was no blood in the shoe
Like a lovely melody – Play it to me!

The shrine of Ama

Standing there on the mountain top
She was looking down motionless and shocked
Thousands of giant men were marching to invade
The battle would begin

And death cried out but she refused to flee now
She prepared to fight against the crowd

And she raised her sword
And her battle cry resounded near and far
Beauty in the storm fighting for the shrine of Ama

The sound of blades and steel – her tune of hope was real
Blood was shed and many soldiers died
Rough the scene – inglorious and wild
Then out of night and day thousands of creatures came
to fight on Xiphea`s side

And death cried out but they refused to flee now
They prepared to fight against the crowd

And she raised her sword
And her battle cry resounded near and far
Beauty in the storm fighting for the shrine of Ama
Our legend says that she raised her sword…

Mirror on the wall

Mirror on the wall, mirror on the wall….
See, my world is going down – Save my crown!
I am cold and numb, somehow broke inside
This is my heavy fight with light
And now – I need to rise

Far away from home I met destiny
One bite… everything dark
And when she had them chase and murder me
I ran for life, could escape, I thought that I was free
My new good friends though they tried to warn me:
“Don`t trust a stranger!” I did- so I fell asleep
I can`t wake up

My dear, – I`m hearing, – Snow-white! – My love
No dream! – I know! – I feel just distress,
Pain is – hurting – burning
Hear me! – I do – Wake up!

I hear you but I don`t know how to reach you
How I miss having a voice
My wild soul is still trying to break out
But I can`t scream…
I can`t scream

Help me, free me – I am lost!
Help me, free me – it feels like I was lost forever
Tell me how to dream on with
no hope running through me!
I`m trapped here – speechless
Will you please cover my body? I`m freezing
And tears are mute like me and
I can`t wake up!
Kiss me!

I hear you but I don`t know how to reach you
How I miss having a voice
My wild soul is still trying to break out
But I can`t scream

Dancing with the wolves

They told me: “Do not leave the path!” I know
“Be careful – there is danger – Don`t trust the wolf!”
I don`t need your fear
I do not think it`s clear that he is dreadful,
has no heart and could never like me 
You don`t know him but the stranger knows:
When I just say my name –
we are somehow the same

Red riding hood not avoiding the woods – today
I will be dancing with the wolves
Don`t you confront me with a fear I don`t understand
It must be easy to pretend
But don`t get confused in the end!

Too many truly innocent lives are gone
The forest now is quiet and calms the remaining wolves

Don`t hate! And don`t tell me now all that you know – I will go

Here – take my cape, drink that wine, eat that cake
You can have it all and I…
I just want to dance with the wolves
You can have it all but you can never have me

Red riding hood …

The little mermaid

So deep the ocean like memory!
A world of dreams and your phantasy
The waves are carrying history
One tale of love and of secrecy
came up and floats to infinity:
Her sacrifice and her tragedy

To be with him – in silence
she had paid the price when she woke up at the shore
Her first step – so amazing!
But the pain was great as if a sword was passing through

Too sad! Can you feel the threat?  Thundering – like the call of death

Hear what she gave – Is not love brave?

Despite her pain she moved gracefully
And when she danced she looked pretty
The prince in love with his memory
And when her eyes said: please marry me
he kissed her forehead and had to leave
She was the savior – he couldn`t see

He came back from a journey
Brought a princess –
introduced her as his bride
“She saved me” He said so
Little mermaid smiled but she was broken deep inside

Too sad! Can you feel the threat? Thundering – like the call of death

“Little sister, hurt and silent we gave our hair for this
And before the sun rises plunge the knife into your prince!
Yet before the sun rises you can be with us again.”
Rosy dawn grew brighter – They looked at the sky
“Sweetheart, are you dreaming?” She kissed the prince goodbye

Crashing! Jumping! Changing into foam…

All that she gave now goes with the waves

One tale of love and of secrecy
came up and floats to infinity:
Her sacrifice and her tragedy
So deep the ocean like memory
A world of dreams and your phantasy
The waves are carrying history

Power of the dwarfs

We are stronger than you think,
we are smarter than the queen
and we fight the law
We work inside the hills – living in the woods
Rough are our hands and dirty our hoods
Seven lamps at night! Seven hoes to fight

We are the dwarfs working all for one
Always singing along – Hey ho!
We might be small but we`ve got it all
The power of the dwarfs rules the world

Once she came in our lives
We fell in love with red and black and white
She will remain the sun – but she must move on
It will be hard but can`t be wrong

We are just a rowdy gang,
a bunch of seven uneducated men
But we know how to work – how to survive
and how to drink – Enjoy your life!
Seven lamps – we shine! Seven jars of wine!

Briar Rose

What a shame! And I shall let it be? Who am I to be excluded?
When it comes to the peak of your feast you`ll see – Wonderful!
I`m a fairy of might and of dignity but I can be tough – creepy
I will punish all!

My tiny princess, there you lie dreaming
And I am here to pronounce an evil curse
She is so lovely and oh, so pretty
Because of you she will have to feel my force

Now they seem terrified and I feel lonely
So I turn to rage – Wonderful!
I don`t care that now I`m the enemy
I don`t care that you swear, your Majesty
I deserved a plate

My tiny princess…

Watch, how evil grows!
My tiny princess…

Briar Rose, baby, please don`t cry
You will bloom before you fade – As time goes by
15 years from now on you will come to me
Wonderful! A sweet escape but you will have to bleed
You will come to me
Wonderful sweet escape but you will have to bleed

My tiny princess…

Wonderful sweet escape but you will have to bleed
Briar Rose, baby – the next time we`ll meet

Gracious fate

Once two lovers lived they wished for a child
Next to their house there lived a witch of great might
One day the wife took a look in the enchanted garden
and saw the rampion

Oh I shall die! How much I long for this! My last salvation grows in her grass
I don`t know why my craving hurts so much
Oh, would you please redeem me from pain?”

He- cause he really loved his wife so much- could never even think of losing her
So in the twilight he climbed a wall to get into the garden – a foolish plan
Suddenly he couldn`t breathe – couldn`t go ahead
The witch was standing right before him
With angry eyes she said: “I will let you live”

But she cried a spell and swore at him:
“Your child that will come to the world must be given to me…
the price of my good rampion!”

A broken mind – He promised everything
But all she showed was an unpleasant smile
12 years went by – That witch appeared and shut
their pretty girl in a tower of darkness

No door, no step, just a tiny window
“Let down your hair! I will climb up to you
You must obey! Twenty ells above”
Oh, gracious fate! Will there be love for her in the dark?

The son of the king was riding through the wood
He came to the tower and he fell in love
with a voice so gentle, with a voice so sweet
He listened to a song and he watched the scene
When he cried her name, he met the pretty girl
They married at one night and they planned to go
But the witch found out and she told a lie

Desperate he sprang, wasn`t dead but blind

For several years he traveled from near to far
His grief stopped forever as he heard a song, he knew by heart

Oh, he arrived at where she lived and dreamed
As she caught sight of his shape she did freeze
But then she cried – Her tears cleared out his eyes
And he could see again, both were united

Oh, gracious fate!

Star talers

Once upon a time a little girl was on a journey
Her parents had died – she tried to escape the despair
Poor, sad and lonely but somehow rich in her heart
Sheltered and watched by the stars

“Please, little girl, will you please give me something to eat?
I am hungry, it hurts – you have bread, will you give me a piece?”
And she gave him what she had – the whole piece of her last bread
Then she went onwards and said: “May you be blessed”

Then came a child who moaned and said: “I am freezing
My head is so cold I have nothing to cover it with”
So she took of her hood and gave it to the child
Walked away brighter inside

Please, little girl, will you please give me something to wear?
I am cold and it hurts, you have clothes, I have nothing, I swear!”
And she took off cote, shoes and dress then she said:
“May you be blessed” There she stood in her vest and…

Stars were falling from the sky

...and this is the fairytale!
