about

“You can also see it from a different point of view, because rain also has something romantic and melancholic. This two senses I hear also in the songs. It is very well put together, there is much variation in the numbers. I love the keyboard sound, for example. It's has a lovely eighties' vibe. Like you hear in 'You Suffered Enough', reminds me of fast songs from Echo and the Bunnymen.”

“The singer from Rain On London sounds a bit like Michael Stipe from REM meets Andy Cairns from Therapy.”

“This is great quality eighties' misery pop with a sharp edge! It brings in more dark clouds and lets the rain continue.”

Michael Naus (Bass) Matthias Killmann (Drums) und Bernd Malkowski (Gitarre/Gesang) trafen sich mit Keyborder Edwin Heidenreich.

Track Name: Saturday
Lyrics:

I was calling you
In the middle of the night
All I want is you, to sleep by my side
Baby tell me is it wrong, or is it right
What I feel for you, what I feel for you inside.

I was calling you
Now I got you on the phone
All I want is you, to come home
There´re a million words to say, a thousand things to do. I was calling you, please hold the line, all I want is you, I wanne make you mine, I am sure there is a way for what I feel for you inside.

Refrain:
Saturday, please don´t leave me on a Saturday, Saturday, when I´m dancing into the lights Saturday, when you´re no longer prepared to stay. Saturday, when I´m dancing into the lights.

I´ve got a story about a man who left it all behind he said he had enough, he said he had enough of life, he gets drunk everyday, he was left by his wife.

What I feel, (What I feel for you inside), (2x)
please don´t leave me on a..
..Refrain:

Solo:

Oh, (please don´t leave me on a)...
..(Refrain:) (2x)
Track Name: Time is running
Lyrics:

I´ve been wasting my whole life
I´d like to see you one more time
I wanne tell you what´s wrong inside
I´d like to hold on till the end of time

When it´s cold in your life, Do you know your alive?!

Time is running it´s running away, but I keep
you in my heart, cause (nobody) can stay. 2x

Take my hand I give you all I can
All you want, I try to understand
All you feel, my heart will break
All your pain, girl I don´t fake..

„Bridge“

Time is running it´s running away, but I keep
you in my heart, cause nobody/(can stay). 2x
I keep you in my heart
I keep you in my heart

you want me, you want me to know, you told me, you don´t want me to go, you show me, you show me the way back home, the way back home...

Time is running it´s running away, but I keep
you in my heart, cause nobody/(can stay). 2x
I keep you in my heart
I keep you in my heart

I keep you in my heart
Track Name: My Brain said
Lyrics:

I woke up, on a sunday afternoon I´m trying to remember how I came home last night. I´ve got a hangover I´m asking myself I don`t know, I don´t know why. Who´s the young woman sleeping in my bed my brain said, she´s allright. The telephone rings I pick up the phone, a voice said:

You can not only only fall in love with someone or anybody, you can not only only fall in. You can not only only fall in love with someone or anybody...

She woke up, she´s talking to me, it´s like in a dream or my fantasy. Her face, can tell you stories. Her eyes are looking without worries, her lips are fantastic too, she kissed me, I kissed her, what else could I do?

I don´t know why I feel depressed, I don´t know why I feel so stressed, your job is all you need, that´s what they say. (Hey) 2X

You can not only only fall in love with someone or anybody, you can not only only fall in, You can not only only fall in love with someone or anybody...

I don´t know why I feel depressed, I don´t know why I feel so stressed, your job is all You need, that´s what they say. (Hey) 3X

You don´t know why you feel depressed, You don´t know why you feel so stressed, your job is all You need, that´s what they say..2x
Track Name: If You go
Lyrics:

You did me wrong long time ago You are so strong, guess I´m too week for you. You need someone to show you the way, I´m not the one who can make
it possible.
You had to much it brought you down. And
all that stuff it will never hurt you anymore

It´s so nice when the pain stops, when the pain stops and it won´t come back again, It´s so nice when it all stops cause it all sucks,
it will never hurt you anymore 2x
if you go if you go if you go
it will never hurt you anymore

You are so cruel you don´t know what you do I can´t sleep at night, cause I´m thinking of you.
The best thing in my life, that´s what you say:
You threw me away, kick me out of your head.
You had to much it brought you down. And
all that stuff it will never hurt you anymore

It´s so nice when the pain stops, when the pain stops and it won´t come back again, it´s so nice when it all stops cause it all sucks,
it will never hurt you anymore 2x
if you go if you go if you go
it will never hurt you anymore
It´s so nice when the pain stops, when the pain stops and it won´t come back again, it´s so nice when it all stops cause it all sucks,
it will never hurt you anymore 2x
if you go if you go if you go
it will never hurt you anymore 2x
Track Name: Going to that Place
Lyrics:

You said I never thought I could believe
It would be so hard, so hard to breath
Like a friendly fire in my head
I never thought we could forget

You said so many years were passing by
To many tears we had to dry
people say, they say goodbye
And we don`t know the reason

We´re going to that place
We´ll never fall from grace
We´re going to that place
(What´s the price I pay) 2x

I´m sorry for the things I did to you
But every word I said was true
It´s like a puzzle in your head
Put the pieces together if you understand

We´re going to that place
We´ll never fall from grace
We´re going to that place
(What´s the price I pay) 2X

They say: there´s nobody out there
They say: there´s nothing alright 2x
:never never ever/nothing´s forever 2x
......we´re going to that place come on.
We´re going to that place
We´ll never fall from grace
We´re going to that place
(What´s the price I pay) 2X
Track Name: This Life is no Highscore
Lyrics:

You´re trying to forget
Now it´s time to live
Everything you have done
Now it´s time to forgive

All the places you´ve been
All the friends you leave
Give yourself a new chance
Now it´s time to forgive - Yourself

All you´ve got, You know it´s not enough
All you need, it´s learning how to breath
We want more, but this life is no highscore 2x

Bridge:
Nothing is like it seemed to be
But the world (keeps) turning around
Wind is blowing through the leafs
Till they fall down to the ground
Now, I don´t wanne life a perfect life
Now, I don´t wanne life a perfect life

Refrain:
All you´ve got, You know it´s not enough
All you need, it´s learning how to breath
We want more, but this life is no highscore
All you´ve got, All you´ve got to find
All you need, all you need to know
We want more, but this life is no highscore

Bridge:
Refrain:
Track Name: Hungry
Lyrics:

We get drunk and we are happy we are fine
We´ve been trying hard to pull the perfect line
There are people wanne shake our hands
There are people who become our friends

We are going to the city in the night
We´ve been talking about the problems
deep inside. There is no one to figure out
What we are really talking about..

I was hungry I need some food to live
I was lonely I got so much love to give 2x
(I was hungry)

There are people in the club who like that
sound, coming out of speakers made for the
crowd. No matter how it starts and how it
ends like the beginning of a one night stand

I was hungry I need some food to live
I was loneley I got so much love to give 2x
I was angry You had to go away (yeah)...
I was angry You had to go away (yeah)...
(I was angry)

I was hungry I need some food to live
I was loneley I got so much love to give 2x

I was angry get out of my way you had to
go go no need to stay, it´s all that I, that I
could say, We couldn´t be one it´s so unreal 2x
Track Name: Keep on smiling
Lyrics:

I see it every morning, when I look outside
the window, the sun is shining bright and I
feel alright

I´m sitting in my kitchen, I drink a cup of
coffee, I know that I´m late but, I´m sure
that´s my fate

I always keep on smiling, even when I´m crying
I always keep on smiling, when my tears are drying

I see it every evening, when I´m watching the
TV- Screen, people talking shit and we believe in it
And when I go to bed at night, my dreams are all I really like. Sometimes I get scared, cause live can be so bad.

I always keep on smiling, even when I´m crying. I always keep on smiling, when my tears are drying.

We are moving round and round, don´t care what you´re talking about. We are moving around and around and around.

And a friend of mine told me: „If I should ever
die please never forget me If you have to cry“

I always keep on smiling, even when I´m crying. I always keep on smiling, when my tears are drying.

I always keep on smiling, even when I´m crying. I always keep on smiling, when my tears are drying.
Track Name: Zero G (You lift me up)
Lyrics:

Tell me, where you´d like to be
Someone, somewhere in Zero G
When you´re looking down to earth
You see how fragile it could be

I´ve been, waiting for that day
I did not, expect it anyway
What you give is what you get
But there´s a lot of luck you need

You look good really good tonight
But you´re really never ever gonna
make my heart complete
You lift me up, You lift me up 2x

Take your chance if you believe
There are possibilities
Try to keep your dreams alive
But there´s a lot of luck you need

You look good really good tonight
But you´re really never ever gonna
make my heart complete
You lift me up, You lift me up 3x

Why you´re, trying to forget the past
Everything, you did too fast
You´ve got to, keep yourself together
Sun will, (never shine forever)

You look good really good tonight
But you´re really never ever gonna
make my heart complete
You lift me up, You lift me up 4x
Track Name: You suffered enough
Lyrics:

My glasses fell onto the ground
dancing people don´t care about
too many drinks in too less time
makes your brain forget your mind

We have to pay the taxi-price
We have to pay it´s much too high
I forgot my key in you bag
Oh my friend I can´t sleep in your bed

Refrain:
You suffered enough, please don`t hold me on the ground when I´m down. You suffered enough, please don`t hold me on the ground there´s no doubt,
You suffered enough, You suffered enough, allright!
You suffered enough, please don`t hold me on the ground when I´m down, You suffered enough, (please don´t hold me on the ground)

Now I lay onto the ground
You´re stumbling over my body
I´m looking for my glasses that´s
The reason your hands are bloody
Now I lay onto the ground
You´re stumbling over my body
I´m looking for my glasses that´s
The reason your hands are bloody

Refrain:

It´s another place
It´s another time
It´s another man
In your life...

Refrain:

It´s another place
It´s another time
It´s another man
In your life... 2x
Track Name: About you
Lyrics:

Look into the mirrow
And tell me what you see
Do you see the one
You always used to be
Outside of my window
The sun is shining bright
The morning is
Reflecting every single light

Light

I will never forget about you
I will never forget about you 2x
I will never forget about

It can happen every day
You see it in your dreams
It seems like life is fading away
You can see it in your eyes
This shining of your life

I will never forget about
I will never forget about

I will never forget about you
I will never forget about you
I will never forget about you
I will never forget about you

I will never forget about you
I will never forget about you
I will never forget about you
I will never forget about you
