Work Out 03:19
WORK OUT The chains fell off the lion and all paintings off the wall Those memories are fluid, there is no control at all I've gotta do some work out on my troubled racing mind Face this lifeless desert and step out into the blind. Come run with me, now daylight fades Run with me under shady trees Something lies waiting in that distant fire ball Do you realise we can take it all Realise we can take it all Just realise we can take it all Well this electric mirror ball, like cocaine in our veins Explodes in million pieces, here’s the magic in our brains, Steals the brakes out off our engines, takes the finger off our lips Like a rumbling volcano, like the fire on our ships. CHORUS In this world we couldn't share there is no illness nor deceit There is no paranoia in the faces that I meet And nothing here is certain, there's a thousand points of view Well could you live with one opinion, live by a million rules ? CHORUS

Hanging Out 04:10
HANGING OUT Am I supposed to analyse my failures and my fears Or can I just skip the thinking, go out and have a few beers I’ve been hanging on to the good life, gathered some friends round here Yes, we smoke too many cigarettes, crie too many tears This is what we talk about, this is how it feels This is all the best in me, this is hanging out… Hanging out For better and for worse we tried tenderness for real Hearts on fire, tongues of stone, thoughts all disappeared But how can I be good, my dear, how can I come near This is what we talk about, this is how it feels This is all the best in me, this is hanging out… Hanging out

Fear 06:34
FEAR Brittle eyes in this cruel, cruel world of action Brittle eyes of disbelief Brittle eyes in this fatal world of fiction She wants to walk on water but goes underneath Brittle eyes in this steel and concrete jungle The engine of her life’s now put into another gear Hidden visions she points out with her fingers She’s just too young to smell the danger here A river is no river if that river’s gone dry You’re challenging the river But you know you’re gonna die A river is no river if that river’s gone dry See the tissue on the table She lies spitting on the floor Follow the blood spore to the needle She couldn’t take it anymore All her senses now gone stone dead The last twitching on the floor Is there life in this bloodshed Is there life in this whore CHORUS Fear

BONJOUR TRISTESSE In your most peculiar way you walk the line Till all your sorrow will be mine On the tracks from your youth there’s only time But inspite of all the loss you’re doing fine Allthough you come falling from the stairs On your back the sweet memories of affairs From the days you wore ribbons in your hair Smoked cigarettes to blow circles in the air Right now you have the wisdom of a tree Just to rock your children on your knee You long for places that have never been seen From where you’d never come running back to me From the well, say what you need Is it something that I could be From the well, it’s clear what you need But there is nothing there as far as I can see. Poisoned words ring through the pines You spit them out between the lines Make them hurt like hell without a sound Make it far too hard to be around Make me feel like an everlasting tree That travels rootless through the space round you and me And only God knows how I've tried How all my efforts slowly died Crawling round with my ball and chain Never to be released again I’m only trying just to be I’m simply trying to be me CHORUS

WAVE ON THE WIRE A long time alone, so I drink what´s forbidden By purity´s law, will my sins be forgiven tonight Out of the blue I remember a face and I pick up the phone For the same hollow phrases. With the difference that I mean it I mean it, I mean it this time… It´s me again, it´s me again as a wave on the wire Fly me high Point out a city on this wide continent, do me favour and bring me the man Hidden inside here, hidden for them In your choosen city bring him back again It´s deep in the night and I fight at the frontline For a life in the spotlights and candy at tea time I loose lots of load on the road that I travel To return where I started, where I first fought the devil With the difference that I´ve seen it, I´ve seen it this time. It´s me again, it´s me again as a wave on the wire Fly me high.. high Back to the city, back in the scene Back in the middle of the same old dream A man runs for glory, he´s lost in the rain In your choosen city, bring him back again Chorus

Mary Jane 02:54
MARY JANE If you ask me about Mary Jane I guess I've seen her in better shape The way she sings her favorite song, well you know The last time we saw her must have been years ago When her name was sung in every radio show I forgot the name of who sang that song, cause you know It doesn't matter anymore Something came breaking through her door What a waste, Mary Jane, what a waste.... Yes, I’ve seen her on my way back home By her shed along the dessert road Where she sits alone on her solid stone in the sun Well I still think of Mary Jane As teasing like a threatening rain And she always smiles when I dream her face, but you know CHORUS So proof me wrong, proof me wrong

Never Enough 02:25
NEVER ENOUGH There is rain pouring down on the parade There is a face across the road Here comes that pain called love Well tell me straight do you have a place for this heavy load Well, back in school as you still might know I was always late, I ran a different race, I walked another road And now I´m standing on top of the roof looking down down down What the fuck am I trying to proof, spinning around, round and around Well I guess it´s never enough, I guess it´s never enough I just can´t get enough Your lovely face is still the same It never changed in spite of all pain of a life alone Next to man, he must drive you insane, he´s got so little brain, oh what a shame I had to roam But I shut that door and I took that train years ago, but like never before I feel like coming home And now I´m standing on top of the roof looking down down down What the fuck am I trying to proof, spinning around, round and around Well I guess it´s never enough, I guess it´s never enough I just can´t get enough

Drifting 03:10
DRIFTING She comes to me, says I´m an expert in just nothing As far as I can see that´s true Sometimes she’s hungry for a challenge or just anything She says that challenge might be you But I´m just drifting and I know I can´t be forgiven But I´m so full of boredom that I´m too tired to talk to you So full of boredom that I´m too tired to talk to you Here comes her second shot, she knows a way to ease my mind Well, that old trick won´t work on me You might even have a million ways of any kind But I need the strain to think free Cause I´m just drifting and I know I can´t be forgiven But I´m so full of boredom that I´m too tired to talk to you So full of boredom that I´m too tired to talk to you I tell her this is not my favorite way of wasting time Me, I just wanna hide At most I will let you feel that you are a good friend of mine But I don´t need you all by my side Cause I´m just drifting and I know I can´t be forgiven But I´m so full of boredom that I´m too tired to talk to you So full of boredom that I´m too tired to talk to you

Lurking 04:05
LURKING Weird sunsets, weird eyes, weird days in paradise There’s really something, something waiting and it could be here any day now The air is clear and I can hear a sound appear right in my ear There’s really something, something waiting and it could be here any day now I don´t know where it´s heading for and I don´t know where it´s from Though I don´t know what it would be like, it´ll certainly turn you on. It´s lurking, always lurking Secret meetings, secret nights. People howling in the full moonlight It´s really nothing, but still we´re waiting as if it could be here any day now Everybody, everybody needs something, something to believe in. Well, it´s lurking, always lurking, forever lurking. You´d better not fix on the things that you don´t have There ain´t too much any way You´d better fix on the things that you do have They might lift you of the ground someday Everybody, everybody needs something, something to believe in

Crumble 05:00
CRUMBLE It's the alarmclock singing, one of them Seventies' songs It's time that we should clean our heads It's time for breakfast, honey, it's time for sing alongs It's time that we should get out of bed Cause I see it all crumble, I see it all run out How I hate that vision, this is where time should stop. Well it all seems useless, honey, to run around like fools. It feels like going back to bed. But it's time to hug the children, send them off to school It's time that we should stop looking ahead (zie onder) Cause I see it all crumble, I see it all run out How I hate that vision, this is where time should stop. cause all is beautiful right now it's right before darkness falls this is where time should stop

about

Erny Green Utrecht, Netherlands

In '88 trekt Green als straatmuzikant de wereld in. Kille straathoeken wereldwijd, maar ook roemruchte podia als CBGB’s in New York, het zijn de ideale speelplekken voor de Nederlander in deze roerige jaren. In 1992 keert hij gemangeld terug en brengt zijn 1e soloalbum uit.
25 jaar en 9 albums later is het Green gelukt zich bij de absolute top van de Nederlandse liedjesschrijvers te vestigen.
