Red Light Blue Light

Parkinson duet performed by Joerg Veselka and Connie Weixler
Words and music by Joerg Veselka

Red light blue light is shining, shining through the night
Red light blue light, I’m crawling, I’m crawling, on the floor
Red light blue light, I’m hoping, yeah I’m hoping to see you again
Red light blue light, I’m crying, yeah I’m crying, I miss you so

Life’s unpredictable, incomprehensible incredible, unimpossible
Life’s unpredictable, incomprehensible, yeah incredible, unimpossible – without you

Red light blue light is shining, shining – through the night
Red light blue light, I’m crawling, crawling – on the floor
Red light blue light, I’m hoping, hoping – to see you again
Red light blue light, I’m crying, crying, I miss you so

Life’s unpredictable, incomprehensible, incredible, unimpossible without you
Life’s unpredictable, incomprehensible, oh incredible, unimpossible – without you

Red light blue light is shining, shining – through the night
Red light blue light, I’m crawling, I’m crawling – on the floor
Red light blue light, I’m hoping, yeah I’m hoping – to see you again
Red light blue light, I’m crying, yeah I’m crying, I miss you so

Life’s unpredictable, hmmm incomprehensible, hmmm incredible, unimpossible without you
Life’s unpredictable, incomprehensible, hmmm incredible, unimpossible – without you
Hmmm, Hmmm, life’s unimpossible – without you

Wasn’t I the One

Parkinson duet performed by Jacques Bush and Gerald Ganglbauer
Words and music by Jacques Bush/Marino Acapulco

Spring and I - 1
Gerald Ganglbauer, Jacques Bush, Marino Acapulco

You treat me well, but I don’t mind.
From the well the plight is coming … coming bad.
I sit and watch the hours,
Wonder if I’ll ever make it home … so tired of hanging.

You treat me well but I don’t mind.
You think your every wish is my command.
Once I was waiting for the fame,
But things ain’t never what they seem to be.

When I wake up, I feel homeless,
Wasn’t I the one?
Understood and punished all the way.

You treat me well, but I don’t mind.
From the well the plight is coming … coming bad.
I sit and watch the hours,
Wonder if I’ll ever make it home.

When I wake up, I feel homeless,
Wasn’t I the one?
Understood and punished all the way.

So long, hey! Do I know
Wasn’t I the one.

I drank the whole week away
Give me everything to be …

When I wake up, I feel homeless
Wasn’t I the one …
So misunderstood who’s found where he belongs …

Apparently Michael J Fox performed a duet with the great Paul Simon, but unfortunately none of them responded to my enquiries. The only proof is in the picture above, found somewhere on the Fox Foundation’s website without the music. A pity, because I would have loved to listen to them singing together. Could it perhaps go on Volume 2 of Parkinsong Duets?

So Here I Am

Parkinsong duet performed by Johnny Schwarzinger and Uli Sajko
Words and music by Johnny Schwarzinger, poem by Uli Sajko

Noch wirft die Sonne einen Blick
Durch mein Fenster jeden Tag
Das Morgenlicht für mich ist Glück
Wünschte es nie enden mag

Doch schwächer wird von Mal zu Male
Das Strahlen kürzer und im Nu
Legen sich dunkel herbstlich fahle Gedanken
Dem Schweigen noch dazu

Contemplate myself in the mirror
Mirror inside my soul

I’m on the warpath with myself
Really out of step

Feels like I’m on a wire
Cutting all the lines

To come out in the open
Not aching anymore

So here I stay – So here I go
No matter if it’s sun or rain
So here I go – So here I stay
No matter if it’s sun or rain
So here I go – So here I stay
No matter if it’s sun or rain

Put the sun in my pocket
Wash the clouds out of my mind

There’s no need to protect
My eyes from the light

To come out in the open
Not aching anymore

So here I am – So here I stay
No matter if it’s sun or rain
So here I stay – So here I go
No matter if it’s sun or rain
So here I go – So here I stay

Noch wirft die Sonne einen Blick
Durch mein Fenster … jeden Tag
