DIETER BOHLEN - Backstreet Dreams (1993 BMG CD 74321 13473-2)

01. HISTORY

If I talk in my sleep and I talk in my dream, -
I’m just a fool for you.
Oh, I’m under your spell, baby - and it seems
all this in heaven too.
Oh, I’m that guy who will take the pain
Behind closed doors you’ll lie again
The light shot diamonds from your eyes tonight.

Refrain:
It’s history - there is enough for you and me
I promised myself to you - for sure, my baby
Oh, I swear you can’t ignore.
History - I justify my love is free
There is enough, my heart - for sure, my lady
That’s what lovers living for.

Oh, you took all my love and you took all my soul
I’m just a jealous guy.
Oh, I drown in my tears when I lose control
There is no reason why.
Oh, there’s a heart with no name
And you are playing tricks again
The light shot diamonds from your eyes tonight.

REFRAIN

History!

02. OPERATOR

Oh, listen, baby!
Oh baby, I’ll dare
Baby, come and love me

1-2-3!

Baby, if you rule my world
Oh, don’t cry, babe, in the rain.
Who is talking to my girl?
Never trust a good old friend.
’cause every night they wanna steal
And every moment - that is real
Oh, my heart will never heal of your love.

Refrain:
And the operator said: “40 cents more or it’s over”
(And that’s no lie, and that’s no lie)
I’m the biggest fool of all
Will you catch me, baby, when I’ll fall?
And the operator said: “40 cents more or it’s over”
(And that’s no lie, and that’s no lie)
Words are not enough for me
Baby, where’s your destiny?

Oh, listen, baby!

Your love shot diamonds from your eyes -
Oh, this love is so bizarre.
And I’m lonely, secret lies
Oh, this time you’ve gone too far.
’cause every night you play a game
And every moment, call your name
Oh, I cry out insane for your love.

REFRAIN

Oh, listen, baby!

03. BACKSTREET HEAVEN

Oh baby, when I hold you - tell me:
Is this the last time?
Tell me your dreams - tell me,
and then I’ll tell mine.
Lady, when I touch you -
Everything will turn out fine.
Baby, I know - kisses are from heaven
Oh, it’s like (babe) my first time.

Refrain:
Baby, tell me:
Why did you leave this backstreet heaven?
Why did you leave me?
Darling, I know, it’s hard-hard to be mine (oh no).
Baby, tell me:
Why did you leave this backstreet heaven?
Why did you leave me?
Darling, I know, Love is so hard to find.

What a difference a night makes - tell me:
Is this the last dance?
It’s April in Paris - tell me
It’s time for a romance.
Behind my tears, girl
I can see forever, girl
Baby, I know tears made in heaven
Baby, don’t destroy my world.

Baby, tell me:
Why did you leave this backstreet heaven?
Why did you leave me?
Darling, I know, it’s hard-hard to be mine.

Lead me through the darkness
(Oh no, babe) save your last kiss
Oh darling, let me with you once again.

04. YOU ARE AN ANGEL

It’s a tough-tough world (we’re living in) between a man and a woman.
Come close your eyes.

There is love when you’re alone
There’s no friend, no stepping stone
And your heart is only crying, baby
The wind will fly you home.
Blue eyes are crying in the rain
Love is like a violin
Oh, I never knew heaven could speak
But I’ll promise just my heart.

Refrain:
You are an angel – hallelujah! You are an angel – hallelujah!
When a woman loves a man, it’s raining hearts. Oh hallelujah! Oh hallelujah!
You are an angel – hallelujah! You are an angel – hallelujah!
When a woman loves a man, it’s raining hearts. Oh hallelujah! Oh hallelujah!

You are only seventeen
There’s no friend, no help - it seems.
And the guys are only laughing, baby
I promise from my heart.
You can run but you can’t hide
There’s a heart behind your pride.
Oh, you’re running straight to paradise,
when God gives love to you.

REFRAIN

You are an angel!

05. I’M SO EXCITED

Touch me, baby, I wanna make good love to you.

You’re my precious memory
You’re my love, my destiny
Baby, I’m so scared I’ll lose you.
Heaven’s just a sin away
Why you’re hurting me this way
Baby, I’m so scared I love you.
Oh, you are so cool
Break my heart and treat me like a fool.

Refrain:
I’m so excited of this beautiful girl
Take your time to know me in this crazy world.
I’m so excited of this beautiful girl
Love is like a river in this crazy world.
Don’t fool me, when it’s time to make good love.

I’m so excited, you’re a wonderful woman.
I’m so excited, you’re a wonderful woman.

Oh, your love is paradise
Stay with me tonight
See my deep emotion.
Try a little tenderness
I’m dying for a kiss
See my deep devotion.
Oh, you are so cool
Baby, break my heart, - and I’m just your fool.

REFRAIN

I’m so excited, you’re a wonderful woman.
I’m so excited, you’re a wonderful woman.

06. DIRTY MONEY

There’s one hope and that’s no lie
Baby, tears - they never dry.
Oh, one day a lonely girl reaches loneliness.
There’s a face behind your face
But you try to win the race
You can run, but you can’t hide from loneliness.

Refrain:
That’s dirty money, money, money
Don’t take your love to town, my little honey
You are crucified in the middle of the night.
That’s dirty money, money, money
Keep your body, oh, it isn’t funny
I will testify, oh, there’s no reason why.

There’s no friend you can rely
Only dreams, you have to fly
Oh, one day a lonely girl reaches loneliness.
There’s one name, but there’s no heart
Oh, you want to tear apart
Oh, one day a lonely girl reaches paradise.

REFRAIN

07. BALLERINA GIRL

She read the news, she was alone
A one-way ticket flight to Rome
She left the town, a lonely child
Breaking out, she’s running wild.
She’s dancing like the majesty,
She said: “It’s over now”.
All the best things in life are free -
She’ll take it anyhow.

Refrain:
Dream on, dream on, ballerina girl
On a clear day you can see forever.
Dream on, dream on, ballerina girl
I wanna stay with you together.
Love me like there’s no tomorrow
Love me - I’ll take your sorrows.
Oh darling, here comes your fool again.

A fools parade, no helping hand
Like Alice in the Wonderland.
A girl like you, a boy like me
A broken flame, eternity.
Losing more and more each day,
she wins a sea of dreams.
Baby, you will guide my way
Baby, oh, it seems.

REFRAIN

Dream on, dream on, ballerina girl
On a clear day you can see forever.
Dream on, dream on, ballerina girl
I wanna stay with you together.
Dream on, dream on, ballerina girl
On a clear day you can see forever.
Dream on, dream on, ballerina girl
I wanna stay with you together.

08. LOVERS IN A MISSING WORLD

Big dreams, I’m not a foolish guy
Don’t want to talk about it.
It seems, under the falling sky
this love (oh) is a friend of mine.
Maybe here come these tears again -
I can’t stand it, baby.
Oh lady, my heart is in your hand.

Refrain:
Oh baby, baby, baby, we are lovers in a missing world -
living in a memory.
Baby, baby, baby, do you want to be my girl?
Oh, that is no fantasy.
Don’t cry for love, my destiny
Come on rock me, Miss Liberty.
High in the sky - that’s what I feel
Come on rock me, Miss Liberty.

Baby, after the love is gone -
it cuts like a knife, girl.
Lady, where does my heart belong?
Oh, only time will tell, girl.
Maybe eyes crying in the rain -
I cannot stand it, baby.
Lady, my heart is in your hand.

REFRAIN

Oh baby, baby, baby, we are lovers in a missing world -
living in a memory.
Baby, baby, baby, do you want to be my girl?
Oh, that is no fantasy.
Baby, baby, baby, we are lovers in a missing world -
living in a memory.
Baby, baby, baby, do you want to be my girl?
Oh, that is no fantasy.

09. TALK TO ME

I’m just a fool for you (baby) -
oh, what can I do (lady) ?
I read the book of love
And you are lying just to me
And I’m a loser.
Baby, why you pretend (darling) -
(oh) there is no end (darling).
I kept my promises
but you are lying once again
And I’m a loser.

Refrain:
Please talk to me - oh, je n’ai pas compris
It’s like a falling sky
I always will be true - oh du du du dub to you.
Please talk to me - oh, je n’ai pas compris
I promise from my heart
I always will be true - oh du du du dub to you.

Where does my heart belong (baby) ?
Love isn’t always wrong (lady).
You’re playing with a fire
And you are losing once again
’cause you’re a dreamer.
I’m not a lonely guy (darling)
Sun has left your sky (darling)
You broke your promises, girl
And all I’m wasting is my life
’cause you’re a dreamer.

REFRAIN

Du du du dub to you
Du du du dub to you
Please talk to me!

10. MICHAEL HAS GONE FOR A SOLDIER

He got a ticket to the USA
Said: “Hey man, you’re okay”
Gone to fight for your land
Michael, understand.
He got the ticket and he said:
“Time for breakfast in my bed”
Baby, there’s no helping hand
Michael, understand.
He starts to cry - shining in his eyes.
His heart will die in the lonely falling sky.

Refrain:
Oh, Michael has gone for a soldier
Michael has gone tonight
A suitcase is waiting, I told you
Life has lost its pride.

REFRAIN

He shock the devil, a broken flame
Sea of dreams and no name
But his heart will never mend
Michael, understand.
Till the sun has left the sky,
he has to kill, don’t know why
Writing letters in the sand
Michael, understand.
He starts to cry - shining in his eyes.
His heart will die in the lonely falling sky.

REFRAIN

REFRAIN (thrice)

11. DON’T YOU WANT MY FOOLISH HEART

Don’t you want my foolish heart?
(Don’t you want my foolish heart?)
Don’t you wanna tear apart?
(Don’t you wanna tear apart?)
Or is it just a dream, or is it true (baby)

Baby, baby, come on take my time
Wake up, darling - Love is hard to find
Don’t hurt me
You said: “Love is just for free”.
Baby, I don’t wanna cry no more
Oh, you’re knocking on forbidden doors
Come hold me
You said: “Love is ecstasy”.
Oh, baby, baby, can’t you hear my lonely heartbeat?
Oh, baby, baby, please be mine.

Refrain:
Don’t you want my foolish heart?
(Don’t you want my foolish heart?)
Don’t you wanna tear apart?
(Don’t you wanna tear apart?)
Or is it just a dream, or is it true (baby)
Don’t you want my foolish heart?
(Don’t hurt me)
Don’t you wanna tear apart?
(I swear you: I will die)
Or is it just a dream, or is it true (baby)

Baby, baby, oh, it’s loneliness
Babe, I’m waiting for your tiny kiss
Don’t leave me -
promise me eternity.
Baby, baby, oh, this heaven speak
Oh, my heart is lonely - and it’s weak
Come hold me
You said: “Love is just for free”.
Oh, baby, baby, can’t you hear my lonely heartbeat?
Oh, baby, baby, please be mine.
