Paradise Written by Lillia Auzou & John von Ahlen Intro It's gonna be like Paradise x2 Verse 1 We were standing at a cross road I felt so torn apart I was standing alone in the rain And you were just another lonely heart Pre Chorus We are crossing over the rivers of life You think the other side, would be like paradise But we are still two very lonely hearts Living on the other side of a bridge over water Chorus The time has come to let you go Let you go The time has come to let you go Let you go Verse 2 We were drifters in the dark, searching for love Drawn to each other by the need of another We walked into the unknown together Repeat Pre Chorus Repeat Chorus Middle 8 I'm gonna let you go (x8) Pre Chorus 2 The time has come to let you go, to let you go (x4)

Nemesis Written by John von Ahlen Verse 1 Samurai inside your mind With visions of another life If I should fly away tonight Don't follow me to the morning light Ancient life in satellite Reflections of a modern life With this in mind I cast aside All notions of an alibi Pre Chorus 1 Oh my, the Blood is mine, philistine Oh my, the West is mine, justified Oh my, the East is mine, satisfied Oh my, the Beast inside, terrified Chorus Caught in a vision of love Lost in the moment of how should it be Verse 2 Build a life for me and you Till Russia comes and the Yankees too The flesh and blood that I provide Should oscillate and satisfy What could you do but sympathise The eye that sees for miles and miles When power comes it leaves you weak Till you transform a power freak

Sueño Latino Música de John von Ahlen. Letra de Louise Love. Verse 1 Soñando en color De un baile Que lleva el dolor Con su amor Pre Chorus 1 Palabras nuevas Para mi lengua Pero conocido Por mi corazon Chorus Sueno Latino Melodia Universal Verse 2 Yo miro la luna Sobre el volcan Sobre esta lugar Que no conozco Pre Chorus 2 Ya tuve este sueño Este sueño latino Conozco mi corazon La luz de la luna

A Question Of Love Written by John von Ahlen Verse 1 Take all that you want Maybe Not more than enough Lately The stars up above Changing And down here on earth Same thing Pre Chorus Time is ending It's hardly worth a mention Even so I should I call to your attention Our love is dying I can see it in your eyes Those who adored you Clearly now despised Chorus Don't break my heart I've had more than enough Please don't take me there again If it's a question of love Or it's just not enough Then the message is clear Verse 2 There's nothing inside Empty Take all that you want Blame me A greater divide Massive That moment of lust Passive
