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 …

Believe in Everything You Do

Parkinsong duet performed by Pete Wain and Andy Hitchman
Words and music by Pete Wain

One life is all we get
So make the most of it
Fulfil your dreams, follow your heart
Reach for the stars

Open your mind, feel compassion
But don’t let it blind you

Don’t close your eyes angel, be aware of everything
You got your whole life in front of you
Who knows what tomorrow may bring

Listen to the sermon, let your conscience grow
Feel your heartbeat, let your lifeblood flow

Believe in everything you do
Remember nobody can touch you
When your mind is free of guilt and your heart is true

True love is never easy to find
And it only takes a fool to be blind
Open your mind, feel it in your heart
Reach for the stars

Believe in everything you do
Remember nobody can touch you
When your mind is free of guilt and your heart is true

Believe in everything you do
Remember nobody can touch you
When your mind is free of guilt and your heart is true
Believe in everything you do

 

How Will It Be

Parkinsong duet performed by Badhoven and Gerald Ganglbauer
Words and music by Kurt C Greilberger

I’m driving here alone
The road I’ve ever known
When the night comes in
Will it change
My life so rough
I ask my stars above
How will I know, how

But I’m here to be with you
Forever be with you

Baby, how will it be
If I’m holding you tight
How will it be
If I love you tonight
How will it be
If I’m sharing all
All my dreams with you

I feel I’m not alone
With the fight I’ve ever known
Will you stand by me
Take my hand, take me all
Take the centre of my soul
Then you will know, you will

Why I’m here to be with you
Forever be with you

Baby, how will it be
If I’m holding you tight
How will it be
If I love you tonight
How will it be
If I’m sharing all
All my dreams with you

Solo

I’m here to be with you
Forever be with you

Baby, how will it be
If I’m holding you tight
How will it be
If I love you tonight
How will it be
If I’m sharing all
All my dreams with you

Forever be with you

Baby, how will it be
How will it be, how will it be
If I’m sharing all
All my dreams with you
Forever be with you
How will it be

It’s Always Me

Parkinsong duet performed by The Base and Gerald Ganglbauer
Words and music by Norbert Wally

If you hit your head on the door it’s my fault
Because I left it open for you to go thru it
And if I had closed it you would have cursed me in a similar style

You put me in charge of your moods and your minds
Of the the things you forget, of the things you can’t find
Of your smiles, of your fears, of your pains and another half sleepless night

Why is it always me?
Who knows where it’s going
And where the wind’s blowing, it’s me

Why is it always me?
Who can make u feel better and make u feel worse
Who’s in charge of the fate of your whole universe
It is me

Now why is it me around who your world’s turning?
And why would I take care of all things concerning
Your primary needs and your wishes u don’t wanna talk about?

Now, I’ll be your hero and I’ll be your bag full of dirt
You can kiss me and kick me and hurt me
And lick me and call me things
Stupid things you do not care about

Why is it always me?
Who knows where it’s going
And where the wind’s blowing, it’s me

Why is it always me?
Who’s got  the control, who can save every soul
It is me

Why is it always me?
Some say it’s a bliss but I see it as a curse
I’m in charge of the fate of your whole universe
It is me

Not the River of Mercy

Parkinsong duet performed by The Base and Gerald Ganglbauer
Words and music by Norbert Wally


The river I swim is not the river of mercy
The river I’m in is not the river of mercy

I took a swim the other day
To wash away my sins and worries

I washed my hands I washed my face
but I can’t stay in here forever

The river I swim is not the river of mercy
The river I’m in is not the river of mercy

It doesn’t wash away my pains
It doesn’t grant me absolution

When I get out I’ll take the chance
To wash my hands in muddy water

The river I swim is not the river of mercy
The river I’m in is not the river of mercy

I’m gonna swim it after you
Pray you’ll wait out in the ocean

The river I swim is not the river of mercy
The river I’m in is not the river of mercy

Break All Chains

Parkinsong duet performed by Badhoven and Gerald Ganglbauer
Words and music by Kurt C Greilberger

[verse]
Ever in search for
The meaning of live
I’m giving and taking
On the edge of fates knife
I’m learning to taste the,
The tears of joy and fear

[bridge]
I’m living hope
A reckless smile
A pool of wit
Just the tools of a fool

[chorus]
Then I break all chains
And don’t ask why
I take my broken wings
And learn how to fly
I make a new start
No, no mountain that’s too high

I believe in what I do
Working hard to make it true
In my life, in this life

[verse]
Should I think it’s better
To stay at the same four walls
No, I am a free man
In the mercy of my Lord

[bridge]
I’m living hope
A reckless smile
A pool of wit
Just the tools of a fool

[chorus]
Then I break all chains
And don’t ask why
I take my broken wings
And learn how to fly
I make a new start
No mountain that’s too high

I believe in what I do
Working hard to make it true
In my life, in this life

I break all chains

solo

I believe in what I do
Working hard to make it true
In my life, in this life

[chorus]
Then I break all chains
Break all chains
Break all chains
Break all chains

I Break all chains
(Break all chains)
I Break all chains
(Break all chains)
I Break all chains
(Break all chains)
Break all, break all chains
(Break all chains)

When I Look into Your Eyes

Parkinsong duet performed by John Langford and Gisi Steinert
Words and music by John Langford

Ich schaue in deine Augen
Ohne Schmerz oder Kummer
Ich schaue in deine Augen
Es ist nur Liebe, die ich sehe
Dann schaue ich in deine Augen
Ich sehe ein neues Morgen

Like ships in the night
Things get hidden away
The darkness it hides
Things we should see in the day
We must realise
Life’s a game we all play
Open your eyes
Just open your eyes

Then I look into your eyes
And see a new tomorrow
I look into your eyes
Without pain or sorrow
I look into your eyes
It’s just love I see
Then I look into your eyes
And I don’t fear nothing
You make me realise
All the good times coming
I look into your eyes
And you’re all that I need

Wenn ich in deine Augen schaue,
Fürchte ich nichts
Du bringst mich dazu zu erkennen,
Dass gute Zeiten kommen
Dann schaue ich in deine Augen
Du bist alles was ich brauche

Like ships in the night
Our lives they just flicker away
We all take our sides
It’s a game we all play
Our fate will decide
What we do everyday
Just open your eyes
Open your eyes

Then I look into your eyes
And see a new tomorrow
I look into your eyes
Without pain or sorrow
I look into your eyes
It’s just love I see
Then I look into your eyes
And I don’t fear nothing
You make me realise
All the good things coming
I look into your eyes
And you’re all that I need

Park You Too

Parkinsong duet performed by Eros Bresolin and Julia Jockelson
Words and music by Eros Bresolin

Eros Bresolin and Julia Jockelson

I’m sitting at a cross-road, waiting for you
Waiting for you but I don’t really want to
Wait here for you
But you gave me no choice
So I’m waiting for you

So parkin me
Parkin you
Parkin everything that I ever do
Yes, Park me
And most definitely
Park you too.

Well we left the crossroad
And we headed your way
Down a one-way street
But it was the wrong way
I said “Please can we turn around
Because I notice that we’re heading for
Parky-Town?”

So parkin me
Parkin you
Parkin everything that I ever do
Yes, Park me
And most definitely
Park you too.

The closer I got the more people I could see
Heading down the same road as me
Some of them tried to run
But Parky said “You have to come and
meet my son”

So parkin me
Parkin you
Parkin everything that I ever do
Yes, Park me
And most definitely
Park you too.

Today I’m going to hand in my resignation
I don’t want to be a member of your
Parky-Nation
Anymore, anymore
So, park you too.

So parkin me
Parkin you
Parkin everything that I ever do
Yes, Park me
And most definitely
Park you too.
Park you too.
Park you too.
