The Designer Song
(J. Uerschels)
Some people tend to spend their money
On Gucci shoes and Prada wear
Lots of folks, they dress in Versace
Or Hugo Boss but I don’t care,
About Chanel, Lacoste, Ellesse,
About Fubu or Louis Vuitton
About Helmut Lang, Fila, Vivienne
Westwood or Yves Saint Laurent

Fred Perry’s more my style
Ben Sherman makes me smile
I don’t need no other names than these

Cause they are my designers
They are my designers

The sound of names like Lagerfeld
May be a symphony to many ears
If you ask me there are other
Words that I would like to hear
Lonsdale is more my style
Doc Martens make me smile
No need for other names than these

Cause they are my designers
They are my designers
I can only tell it this way
And I really don’t care what you say
About my designers

They are my designers
They are my designers
I can only tell it this way
And I don’t care what you say
About my designers

I will tell it every man
And I’m gonna say it again
They are my designers

Heart Of Sand
(J. Uerschels)
You say you love me, I know that's a lie
You say you're not leaving, I heard that you tried
And there is nothing a man can do or say
To persuade a travelling heart to stay

Our love forever at first it seemed to be
But now in your sad eyes I see how you feel
You lost me somewhere along the way
No hope that this travelling heart will stay.

One day you said to me my heart was made of stone
And that I didn't understand
Could be along those lines, cause it's been broken many times
And now it feels like sand

The door is wide open I have told you so
And I'm sure you would use it, if you knew where to go
I could sleep on our door step all night and all day
And still it wouldn't make you stay

Cause your travelling heart's already far away.
Your travelling heart has gone away.
And I'm sure it isn't right but it's okay.

I Wish It Were Me
(J.Uerschels)
He can hold you in his arms
He can whisper sweet words in your ears
He spends all night upstairs with you
He's the one to have you near
He spends so much time with thee

[Chorus]

(While) I wish it were me #2

I cannot sleep at night
There's a thought that drives me wild
To see you happy with this man I've never seen
I wanna see you happy, but happy with me
He's the one you want to see

[chorus] #3
[break]
Sometimes when you have problems
You come knocking at my door
And I am glad to help you
Then I'm the one that you adore
But after half an hour
When you are strong again
You kiss me on the cheek and say
See you then

I cannot stand being your number two
There's no way of sharing you
With someone whose feeling's aren't true
He cannot have the love I have for you
Still he sleeps in your bed

[chorus] #4

Jealousy
(J.Uerschels)
If you ever came to me with a sawed-off shot gun
If you chained me to my bed and burned my house
If you drowned me in my sink or in my bath tub
If you pushed me from the highest bridge in Europe
If you chopped my head off with a butcher's knife
That would only be the next run at my life

[chorus]

(Coz) Girl you’re killing me,
you're killing me with your jealousy
Your jealousy, your jealousy is killing me
You're breaking my heart, you tear it apart
Your jealousy is killing me

You could test your chainsaw on my forehead
You could plant a lethal virus in my body
You could do the most brutal things to me
The effect would be the same

[chorus]

Julie, Julie
(J. Uerschels)
Now that you have gone
You left me for another man
What you did to me was wrong
But I still want to see you again

[chorus]
Julie, Julie come back to me
Come back to me tonight
He may be your prince, but I'm the king
Come back to me tonight

I remember better days
When we went to the sea
Oh Julie, Julie what went wrong
Between you and me

[chorus]
[break]
I can't force you
to leave him again
But if you will not
I know I will go insane

Now I'm in my lonely room
I've been waiting for ten years
It's the anniversary
And my eyes are full of tears

But I know I won't give up
Til you realize yourself
That the only man for you
Is me, so ring my bell

Keep On Keeping On
(J.Uerschels)

Gone are the days when you couldn't raise your head
When only clouds were in your sky
The nights are over when you couldn't get no sleep
You can leave them all behind
When the braces are singing to you

Now is the time to be somebody
Now is the time to be someone
Now is the time to be somebody
It's time to keep on keepin on

The heavy load that used to keep you down
You got away from it right now
You start breathin deeply like a new born child
When you listen to that sound
The Braces singing to you
Now is the time to be somebody
Now is the time to be someone
Now is the time to be somebody
It's time to keep on keepin on

2002, the Braces for you
From New York to Japan
From L.A. to Switzerland
From Dortmund to Jamaica,
from Krefeld to Croatia.

The Last Song
(J.Uerschels)
This is the last song at the club tonight
The lights will soon be on again
I've been watching you from the corner of my eye
And I think you did the same

This could be the start of something
Or it could end in a one night stand

And I hear myself say (give it a try)
I hear myself say (give it a try)
I can't keep from saying (give it a try)
Give it a try

I'm not the guy to keep you laughing all night long
But my friends say my heart is good
I'm sick and tired of always being on my own
If I could only walk you home
This could be the start of something
Or it could end in a one night stand

And I hear myself say (give it a try)
I hear myself say (give it a try)
I can't keep from saying (give it a try)
Give it a try (give it a try)
Still the last song at the club tonight
The DJ is packing his singles in his case

He takes a last look across the room
An he sees you looking back at him with a sweet smile onyour face
This could be the start of something
Or it could end in a one night stand

Now I advise you not to (give it a try)
You really shouldn't (give it a try)
Coz he is no good for you (give it a try)
You shouldn't give it try (give it a try)

He may have a real good record collection
(give it a try)
But will he care about protection (give it a try)
You shouldn't take a hasty action (give it a try)
You shouldn't give it a try

Skanking In My Lonely Room
(J. Uerschels)
You seemed to be so close to me
That's a while ago
Now you decided to head somewhere else
Why I do not know
It doesn't matter anyway
Seems there was nothing left to say

[chorus]
I'm skanking in my lonely room
This is all that I can do
I'm skanking in my lonely room
This is all that I can do
I've ironed my best button-down
My suit looks really sharp on me today
It's a shame you can't see me like this
You wanted it that way
My hips start moving all along
To the rhythm of this song

[chorus]

[break]
Prince Buster's singing
'At the dark end of the street'
Somehow it's funny
cause that is where we also used to meet

Supergirl vs. Rudeboy
(J. Uerschels)
This is the best time of the year
As birds are singing around our ear
I look into your big brown eyes
You're listening to my sweet, sweet lies
For a short-sighted person it could look like paradise

When you'll see clearly it might be too late
You are heading for a big mistake

Chorus:
(Cause) a supergirl like you deserves a better man than me
A supergirl like you shouldn't end in misery
But you haven't got a clue that you're near catastrophe
When a supergirl like you falls for a rude boy like me.

It seems my bad reputation hasn't reached your part of town
You don't know my determination, I'll build you up just to tear down
