You and I were married by the sea And I wish you good luck Don't regret that you're stuck I'm in love with everyone I see Except the mother-in-law Strikes me with awe My oh my! I never thought we'd come so far Honestly the way you look is quite bizarre but cool All-in-all I'm lucky as can be That's a matter of fact And my spirit's intact All the world is singing out to me Even Claude Debussy Would have heard euphony My oh my! I never thought we'd come so far And I'd like to say I love you as you are asleep You and I were married by the sea You and I were married by the sea You and Me

Winter's night, winter's white Standing at your door Longing for your, well you know, the charms that I adore So if you miss me too Hurry let me in Want to melt the ice away now, baby let's begin Yes you do miss me too Gladly let me in In this lovely tale I've written That's what's happening Winter's night, winter's white Lying by your side In your arms there is no winter, never felt so right Winter's night, winter's white Lying by your side In your arms there is no winter, never felt so right Oh no, this time I'm not going to leave a single day There was winter then but it has gone away

I can hear a foreign whisper, suddenly I find An unexpected attendant, a call, a cue, a sign I'm haunted by a phantom, real or in my mind My company is ghostlike, this shadow is not mine Uhh, the day turns into night Then I look beyond the veil and not by accident A fundamental turn takes grip, a blessing or a curse A fatal shift of sight it is, I call it an advent My life will never be the same, for better or for worse Uhh, the night turns into day A hidden hand turns out to hold its sway Uhh, the day turns into night Uhh, the night turns into day A hidden hand turns out to hold its sway Uhh, the day turns into night

A most idyllic scene, staged so kindly by the blue sky We're out in fields of green, one sweet morning in July We're lazing in the sun, skipping stones across the water And nothing's to be done, no commitments, we know none But some will call it a love-novel-fueled cliché But yet I don't care what they say And if they call it an immature throwaway I really think they go astray A cheeky little cloud dares to stroll across our blue sky The flowers bloom so proud and a zephyr starts to sigh It's paradise on earth, it's a romance in allegro A yearning poet's birth and a gem for what it's worth And when some call it a love-novel-fuelled cliché I think that's not what they should say And though they call it an immature throwaway They won't ever make me go astray

Hey Darling, sing me a song Cause the terrible winter is coming along Your loving is silver and gold But I'm heading for nowhere; it's hard to unfold... you know Like an echo A wind blow Out of control Hey Darling, sing me a song An alleviative tune just to prove me wrong Your loving wipes out the cold Still I'm heading for nowhere; it's hard to unfold... you know Like an echo A wind blow Out of control Everything keeps on playing its role For all the world is smiling right at me The colours shine much more than usually The sun sets satisfied and then You tell me life wonderful but I'm afraid to die With gladness on my side Hey Darling, sing me a song For I know where you are is where I belong

My Love, Mary Jane, you're forever gone Soon will be the break of dawn, the night was filled with yawns Sweetheart, yellow sun, clouds of tears go by Memorizing all the years, the love within the tides And my love I am waiting Waiting to come home You, my only friend - time divides our band Never mind, I'm willed to try to get some sleep tonight Sweetheart, lonely moon, weariness comes soon And my mind won't even try to stay awake a while And the world keeps on spinning And so my dear do I

Good old Dan went out to see The pretty little girl called Nancy But he just turned out to be Ill-fated in this puzzling plot The guy he was five years ago Returned to fight another match As self-reliant as he was He'd come to tell him that Good Dan, good Dan My heart goes out to you my friend and If you want to have a place you can hide Well there's a million in the other land and Good Dan, good Dan And even if you'd have a chance You're not the kind of lucky dog But never mind, my friend Good old Dan was shocked to see The one he'd left without a farewell Lost inside the plot as he – Forgot about which guy he was The clock counts three and suddenly The scenery was bloody red And Good old Dan, with best regards Had left without his head Good Dan, good Dan My heart goes out to you my friend and If you want to have a place you can hide Well there's a million in the other land and Good Dan, good Dan And even if you'd had a chance You're not the kind of lucky dog But never mind, my friend Good Dan, good Dan And even if you'd had a chance You're not the kind of lucky dog But never mind, my friend Good Dan, good Dan You never really had a chance You're not the kind of lucky dog But never mind, my friend

Come up one morning, just before dawning, we're getting it right from the start I have to tell you, give you a small clue, tell you it's lifting my heart No sad lamento, adequate tempo, ain't it a promising start Oh the time is right and we're in tune I had a nice dream, sailed up my thought stream, conducted a jam in the park We sang some high parts, unheard in man's arts, to harmonize with a lark I'm not a scientist, writing on my wrist, rocking all over Hyde Park But the day is meant to be in tune It's still early and the sun comes out, all our sorrows are just gone And your voice is like a melody in tune with morning's dawn In my last nightmare, back then and somewhere, uncordial clouds were in sight (Stormy clouds in sight) But when I got real, facing the real deal, weather turned out to be bright (Everything is bright) Only a light breeze, dandling the lime trees, granting a beautiful sight So confess today it's all in tune Anywhere the wind blows I will follow Anywhere the wind blows in tune

Marilyn Makeup suffered from a very hungry heart Decided, she dyed her hair and went to act a part to gain, oh tempting fame What she felt that she's been missing So Marilyn go, the stage is yours, the folks are starving for a show Everybody lose their minds, for one like you is hard to find Now Marilyn becomes a star, soon everybody knows that you are And your fame's bound to grow, a face that millions know Gone are the days of feeling low, you're high on life Hey Marilyn you know, the cash begins to flow And there is nothing that you cannot buy, you're born to touch the sky So Marilyn Makeup went and fed her very hungry heart. A faker, she's used to give them what they want, to play for them, I won't condemn Though I fear that she's still famish. Marilyn hail, you did succeed where Napoleon has failed Conquering the world with style, subduing it by means of smile But Marilyn with all your wits, is it fair to be a pair of tits? And it comes down to your soul, you're trapped inside a role Your fame turns out a dusty bowl, you'll die of thirst Blame Marilyn's great plot, fake love is all she’s got For she's been drinking from the hemlock's cup, her bliss was built on vain makeup

Now somewhere in a foreign country A different place and time An ideal society A nation so sublime Visions of a better world A man-made paradise on earth A dream and not a promise That's for sure I see it in your face You think it's exciting The radiance of joy in your eyes is frightening Now somewhere in the misty future A kind of golden age A race of noble character At mankind's highest stage Visions of utopia They'll never get you very far A dream is not a promise You should know I see it in your face You think it's exciting The radiance of joy in your eyes is frightening Somewhere in your mind Some place you won't find, there's utopia Some place you won't find Only in your mind It's utopia. Nowhere Land Somewhere in a different world A place inside a dream An ideal society A mankind so supreme Someday in the misty future A castle in the sky You and I will never own it But never mind

Springtime, gift of the sun Reviving all the creation Creatures, thousand and one Singing the loveliest songs You become what you do With no thought of failure Be whatever you see With no thought of failure Summer, child of the sun Kissing us through all his reign and Kisses, thousand and one Drop from the highs of the sky I become what I try With no thought of failure To be whatever I see With no thought of failure When you're the one Within you, all fear is gone Golden eye of the sun Drifting through all of our memories Pictures, thousand and one Cease with the sound of your voice You become what you do With no thought of failure Be whatever you see With no thought of failure When you're the one Within you, all fear is gone

You say: „Time is fading fast, kid, and you lag. “ I say: „What an uncool thought, dear, you're a drag. “ You say: “Seems you're on the wrong track, lost your way. “ I say: “Who's supposed to care for what you say? “ You say: „You're still miles behind me, you're misled. “ I say: „World is round, now see I'm streets ahead. “ I'm streets ahead not miles behind … singing (streets ahead) I'm streets ahead not miles behind … singing (streets ahead) So don't bother me boy cause I'm (streets ahead)

Early one morning you look in the mirror, you search for your face, yeah, search for your face Wash off your numbness you're stuck in an impasse, you long for escape, yeah, maybe a break Dealing with reflexion, playing with a knife It's a thrill and it's quite fancy, surely, tempting, overwhelming, but you better take care Late in the evening you look in the mirror, you're lost in a maze, yeah, lost in a maze Trapped in a cell that you just built yourself and you long for escape, yeah, maybe a break Dealing with reflexion, playing with a knife It's exciting, it's a way to lift you up above the mortals, but you better take care Watch out boy, don't take it all too far If you want to know the laws enforced by god's high court You should be prepared there's risk involved in your effort If you want to probe the universal master plan You should be aware the sun of truth will cause you tan

Anything you say, you tumble and fall and you were born with the blues In the moonlight's sway, you calmly talk, of feelings you see in me, and then you say In the morning, we'll be back without the load In the morning, I will wake and we'll be fine There's nothing you can hide, you knock at the door, rest your head evermore Tell me how you sleep, with your eyes open wide, waiting for the turn of tide In the morning, we'll be here without the load In the morning, I will lay my burden down

about

"The gold mine is cleared", Travis singer Fran Healy complained recently, "the good tunes are all gone, because the Beatles were here before us. For future generations there is nothing left! "

Fortunately things don't seem that bad for the young band The Artistry. It seems there are still some great melodies able to be mined in this world and you can hear them on their new album, "Blessings from The Artistry". The latest offering from this band from Austria includes 14 Indie-pop gems, fine arrangements, sophisticated songwriting and some potential classics.

Blessings from The Artistry – with the subtle touch that pleases.
