Heaven's Children


Coming down as heaven's children, homeless in this world, they have their crying.
Coming in this world of war, and that they in the end will pay with dying.
Joining this world is an option, and a very easy way of going;
But only him, who takes the pain, his wakened soul will do the back home flying.

Heaven's children have forgotten most of their true home, where is no time.
Heaven's children don't remember their true home, and still they walk their line,
Hoping that the chosen line will shelter them from pain and fate and war.
Coming home is that's about the saints have spoken, and that what they adore;
But only him, who seeks the truth, his wakened soul in the end gets fine.

Knowing is the conciseness that nothing is as real - but yourself as soul.  
Knowing this you never will afraid about the death of your life anymore.
Knowing that you never must as child of heaven follow any line or goal.
Coming home is that's about the saints have spoken and that what they adore.

Coming down as heaven's children, homeless in this world, they have their crying.
Coming in this world of war, and that they in the end will pay with dying.
Joining this world is an option and a very easy way of going;
But only him, who takes the pain, his wakened soul will do the back home flying.
(Volker Doormann)




I am a woman 


Being a woman means desire to live;
Desire to love and desire to give.
Never end fulfilling this my way
Means to be a woman til the last day

Being your wife is all I can give.
Being your friend may be easier to live.
Being a woman is like rain and sun,
But In spite of this fighting, I will need  no gun

Being a woman no man can be.
Imprisoned by love, but in mind always free.
Free like the ocean, or free like a bird   
That no one can own and no one can hurt

I am a woman as long as I live.
Being a woman is all I can give. 
Being a woman, being your friend;
Being it all day and night with no end

Being a woman, being your friend;
Being it all day and night with no end.
Being a woman is all I can give
'Cause I am a woman as long as I live
'Cause I am a woman as long as I live
'Cause I am a woman as long as I live
(Regina Svoboda & Volker Doormann)



I saw myself dreaming a dream  
 
I have a bad dream, falling from above
Falling into darkness, where there's no love
Do not remember what I have seen
Do not remember the end of my dream
 
I have forgotten what I have seen
Saw myself only dreaming a dream
Saw myself dreaming a dream
Saw myself dreaming a dream
 
I have a day dream, hearing my name
Calling me home now, home back again
Home to the river and home to the sun
Beyond the ocean Yourself are the one
 
I do remember what I have seen
Saw myself only dreaming a dream
Saw myself dreaming a dream
Saw myself dreaming a dream
 
I found myself lost in a dream
Cannot forget what I have seen
I saw myself dreaming a dream
I saw myself dreaming a dream
 
I do remember what I have seen
Saw myself only dreaming a dream
Saw myself dreaming a dream
Saw myself dreaming a dream
 
I found myself lost in a dream
Cannot forget what I have seen
I saw myself dreaming a dream
I saw myself dreaming a dream
 
Saw myself dreaming a dream
Saw myself dreaming a dream
Saw myself dreaming a dream
Saw myself dreaming a dream
(Volker Doormann, inspired by words of Regina Svoboda)




No one can govern the sun

 for Neil

No one can govern the sun
No sun takes orders from no one
No one can command you: Be free!
No one can command you: Be thee!
No one can tell you the truth
No one can get yourself loose
No one can govern the moon
No one can undo a tune
Be no ones master, be no ones slave
Sing songs of love and stay

Each tree grows without a  king
No king gives planets their swing
Doing is moving a stone
Not doing lets you for your own
Masters can't move stones alone
Slaves doing move many more stones
Love needs no master nor slave
Be love and be yourself brave
Be no ones master be no ones slave
Sing songs of love and stay

N o one can govern the sun
No sun takes orders from no one
No one can command you: Be free!
No one can command you: Be thee!
No one can tell you the truth
No one can get yourself loose
No one can govern the moon
No one can undo a tune
Be no ones master, be no ones slave
Sing songs of love and stay

Each tree grows without a  king
No king gives planets their swing
Doing is moving a stone
Not doing lets you for your own
Masters can't move stones alone
Slaves doing move many more stones
Love needs no master nor slave
Be love and be yourself brave
Be no ones master be no ones slave
Sing songs of love and stay
(Volker Doormann)
