When indecision troubles your mind And in your heart there is no space for peace You feel as if you were falling apart There is one thing to hold on to my baby It´s my love for you Deep inside we know that we belong together And no power at all can tear us apart Remember this when you´re falling down It will help you to get through it all We must stay alive When the daylight fills your heart with desparate sound And no answer can ease the pain you feel inside You see no way out from this mental island The sea around is cold, so cold my baby But my love will keep you warm You may start blaming yourself for who you are Seeing all the shiny faces out there in the crowd You may start losing your way trying to imitate them Thinking so many can´t be wrong, they must understand But there is one thing to hold on to my baby It´s my love for you Deep inside we know that we belong together And no power at all can tear us apart Remember this when you´re falling down It will help you to get through it all We must stay alive

Tausend Schritte Doch nur ein Weg Tausend Schläge Doch nur ein Herz Wo alles anders ist – bleib so wie du bist Es ist in Ordnung, bleib so Kein Mensch Nur dein Herz Zeigt dir Was wirklich zählt Kein Mensch Nur dein Herz Sagt immer wieder So wie du bist, bist du perfekt Wo alles anders ist – bleib so wie du bist Es ist in Ordnung, bleib so Wenn du gewinnst, bleib so wie du bist Wenn du verlierst, bleib so wie du bist Wenn du gewinnst bleib so wie du bist Wenn du verlierst bleib so wie du bist Wo alles anders ist – bleib so wie du bist Es ist in Ordnung, bleib so

Left or right? Right or wrong? Is she the right one? Isn´t he too old? Back and forth High and low Which ways to take? Which to avoid? I can´t stand making a choice I´m too good at going wrong I can´t stand deciding which way to go I don´t feel anywhere at home So I wait......another day So I wait......till it´s too late.....too late I´m the lion in the cage Caught between my heart and my brain I´m the lion in the cage Caught between my past and my future plans I´m the lion in the cage Talking of freedom and dreaming of chains I´m the lion in the cage Indecision is my natural way Together alone Alone with you Will I lose you If I tell you the truth? I can´t stand being alone I can´t stand having someone I can´t stand deciding which way to go I don´t feel anywhere at home So I wait......another day So I wait......till it´s too late.....too late I´m the lion in the cage.........

I lost you when I started to believe That I was your fate and you were my destiny I failed to see that you only belong to yourself Now I do my best to understand it all When I look at the past all over my walls I can´t stand the silence of the phone When Friday opens weekend´s doors Now I see what I had in you Now I know what I lost with you Now I see what I had in you Now I know what I lost with you I lost you long before you said: “It´s over but we could stay good friends” I wanted you to play a part in my own game Now whenever I start to reflect On the disappointment deep in my breast I open myself more and more To the darkest parts of my soul All the memories I have Are going round and round in my head No matter how I try I can´t free my mind from the past To feel ready for a new start To feel ready for a new start Now I see what I had in you Now I know what I lost with you Now I see what I had in you Now I know what I lost with you

Ich tanz´ mit dem Stift auf Papier Ich lass´ mich gehn auf dem weißen Parkett Kein Anker hält mich jetzt noch fest Ich drifte hinaus aufs offene Meer Ich nehme alle mit an Bord Hier gibt es weder Feind noch Freund Hier zählt allein´der Augenblick Der im Vorbeigehen vergeht So let´s appreciate the sound of the rain now Ich tanz´ mit dem Mond auf hoher See Ich spür´die Sehnsucht in seinem Licht: Ohne die Sonne bin ich nur halb, Ohne sie bin ich nur ein Stein im All Ich gleit´mit der Sonne über das Meer Ich spür´die Sehnsucht in ihrem Kern: Ohne den Mond bin ich nur halb, Ohne ihn bleibe ich nachts nur ein Traum Ich nehme alle mit an Bord Hier gibt es weder Feind noch Freund Hier zählt allein´der Augenblick Der im Vorbeigehen vergeht So let´s appreciate the sound of the rain now So let´s appreciate the sound of the rain now One summer day the sun will shine for us again So let´s appreciate the sound of the rain now One summer day the moon will laugh for us again So let´s appreciate the sound of the rain now

She enjoys romantic scenes On TV he prefers News and Thrill She´s the one to see things clearly He´s the one who lives in a dream Two different minds being as one How can it be? Only love can make it happen Look around you and you will see Love knocks on everyone´s door Never asking if you´re ready for There´s no right time or space Love happens just like that Love is the only way To unite what´s been torn It sounds so easy in theory But it´s easier said than done If good and evil inside your mind Are struggling for success You should not believe in good alone Love means to accept them both Love knocks on everyone´s door Never asking if you´re ready for There´s no right time or space Love happens everywhere Love knocks on everyone´s door Never asking if you´re ready for The same power that keeps us together Breaks our hearts in two

about

The first promo EP from SIR PLAIN

In summer 2014 we started our first recordings in our rehearsal living room with a little help from our friend Christopher Heimer. We played the instruments all together live, without clicktrack, in order to catch our music vivid and direct. Then we added step by step vocals, harmonica, saxophones and few additional percussions.
The result is a collection of 6 songs which showcase the multifaceted music of SIR PLAIN, from pure folk on „Let’s appreciate“ to oldschool rock on „Lion in the cage“, quiet ballads like „Now I see“ or cheering soul music on „Love knock’s on everyones door“.

Musicians:
Albert Palowski - Vocals, Guitars
Christoph Boeser - Bass guitars, Harmonica, Banjo, Vocals
Marc Eichhorn - Guitars, Djembé, Percussions, Vocals
Special guest Hajo Müller - Saxophones

Special thanks to Corinne Enders, we did all rehersals and recordings in her living room. And to Christopher Heimer who did the recordings and mastering.
