Time To Live

Lyrics : Roy Goldschmitz, Sean Lang

Music composed + vocal arrangement by : Roy Goldschmitz

Song produced by : André C. Kalipke

André : Musically kept rather simple, the lines of the text are all the more meaningful. Roy wrote the composition and the first verse in 1991, before we got to know each other. We adopted the song into MA's repertoire without much hesitation. The lyrics were completed by Sean shortly after MA was founded. It was the first song we completed the vocals for.

Sean : Recorded 4/92, this was the second version of the song. We had recorded it a month earlier (our very first with vocals) with only one verse repeated four times. Roy usually submitted his songs to me that way - with the instrumental track, vocal arrangement and lyrics to the first verse finished. I then added additional verses. I was thrilled about the final result.

(Please also read the author comments of "The Band Introduces Itself" (vocal and recording quality, etc.)...). Lyrics - see below.


Broken dreams - I want to be

What I feel - there's nothing to compare

Don't run away to be yourself

Don't trust me - there's no hope for this mad world

Have a look - look at me

Keep your dreams whatever you have done

Don't let me down

I hit the ground - don't care

Turn around - just walk away

Won't look back or come another day

So much hate here in this world

Don't give up on the things that you have learned

Try to care - change your world

Don't you care about what others think

Just get on out

Go at it all alone

Don't talk to me - don't hang around

Don't look back - you'll lose what you have found

Time to find a hidden place

To search for another trembling face

Modern age we're living in

You and me - we used to be so free

Just leave this world

And don't come back again

It's time, it's time to live without you

It's time to live without you (you set me free)

It's time, it's time to live without you (you set me free)

It's time to live without you
