The Light Side of the Moon
by Birgitt Schuknecht


When I am with him
nothing really matters
when I am with him
I do not really care

My heart is light, my soul is shining
if he so much as looks at me
My memories are locked, my mind is free
if he so much as looks at me

Violence and Hate and Fear are only words
cause he holds my hand
Tenderness and Love and Courage are my goals
cause he holds me hand

As a son of the night
I yearn for his light

He saves my life
just by being there
He gives me strength
just by loving me.

Iím in love with the Dark Side of the Sun
and rewarded with Light

The Dark Side of the Sun
by Birgitt Schuknecht


When I am with him
everything looses his meaning
when I am with him
I care for nothing

My heart is heavy, my soul is darkening
if he so much as looks at me
My memories are roaming, my mind is captured
if he so much as looks at me

Violence and Hate and Fear threaten me
cause he holds my hand
Tenderness and Love and Courage are only words
cause he holds me hand

As a son of the day
I fear his darkness

He endangers my life
just by being there
He steals my strength
just by loving me.

Iím in love with the Light Side of the Moon
and pay the price of Darkness

Give Me a Reason
by Birgitt Schuknecht



Ray
Give me a reason to hate you
So that I can leave you
Give me a reason for not loving you
So that I can hate you

Frankie
Give me a reason to hate you
So that I can kill you
Give me a reason for not loving you
So that I can hate you


Ray
My love for you ties me to you
Whatever you did to others
Will it be that way forever
Whatever you'll do to me?


Frankie
My love for you protects you
Whatever you said to others
Will it be that way forever
Whatever you'll do to me?


Ray
You hurt my friend while I was watching you
But I still love you
You left me alone after my father touched me
But I still love you


Frankie
You showed me disrespect before my friends
But I still love you
You forced me to show you my fears
But I still love you


Both
Will there be ever a reason
To make me turn my back on you?
Will there be ever a reason
To make me stop loving you?

Give me a reason... No, don't!
After all... I do love you.

To Protect a Heart
by Birgitt Schuknecht


ICE

To long a time without a sob
To long a time without a laugh
Being without feeling was so good at first
Being freed from emotion was so right at first

After too much turmoil in heart and soul
ICE took care of his inner self
After too many tears glistening in his eyes
ICE made sure they never were spilled

But losing fears meant losing courage
And losing tears meant losing laughter
And losing despair meant losing hope
And losing insecurity meant losing trust

Now that ICE froze his inside
It began showing on the outside
Eyes being ICE blue
Smiles being polite
Appearance stiff and rigid
Heart and Soul... frozen


FIRE

To long a time with too much anger
To long a time with too much hate
Being burned by feelings was so good at first
Being heated by emotion was so right at first

After too much turmoil in heart and soul
FIRE took care of his inner self
After too many tears glistening in his eyes
FIRE made sure they never were spilled

But feeling anger meant losing sympathy
And feeling hate meant losing love
And feeling arrogance meant losing compassion
And feeling independence meant losing trust

Now that FIRE burned his inside
It began showing on the outside
Eyes being blazing green
Smiles being arrogant
Appearance cramped and aggressive
Heart and Soul... burned


ICE and FIRE

ICE and FIRE meeting
Melting the frozen heart, cooling the burning soul
ICE starting to fear, FIRE giving him courage
FIRE stopping his anger, ICE giving him sympathy
ICE starting to cry, FIRE laughing with him
FIRE stopping hate, ICE loving with him
ICE starting to despair, FIRE giving him hope
FIRE stopping arrogance, ICE giving him compassion
ICE starting to feel unsure, FIRE trusting him
FIRE stopping independence, ICE trusting him

Blues eyes locking with green
Heart and Soul
FIRE and ICE
United

Ray's Butt (rhyme/humour)

No matter if you need the love or just want the sex
No matter if you're a Mountie or if you're an ex

If you see him as a main dish or as a dessert
If you see him as an angel or as a pervert

Whatever you do to him in the middle of the night
Whatever you plan for him, be it wrong or right

No matter if it's in your fantasy or the real thing
No matter if it looks like loving or like fighting

Whether you are gay or whether you are straight
There exists a sight rewarding for the wait:
Ray's Butt



Ray's Butt (no rhyme/drama)

Men and women alike have complimented me on it
And I was flattered and proud of it in my younger days.

Men and women alike have touched it with joy
And I was surprised at the variety of touches

Men and women alike have kissed it with fervour
And I was stunned by the strength behind those kisses

I cannot remember when those emotions changed
I cannot remember why I feel insulted by praise

Peaches sounded sweet in my ears once
Peaches sounds snidely now

Oh, Benny, this is all your fault
Since I know you I feel no joy being with others
Oh, Benny, this is all your fault
All I wish for now is that only you touch... Ray's butt
