Moonstruck

Wittke / Wittke-Lüers

I try to get myself to sleep every night,
and sometimes I dream quite well,
but once in a month when the moon starts to grin,
my life turns into livin‘ hell.

Something’s going wrong with the people in town,
it seems I’m no longer alone.

I’m moonstruck, baby I am moonstruck
I’m moonstruck, I’m bound by his light,
I’m moonstruck, It’s crazy but I’m moonstruck,
I’m moonstruck, not only at night.

I lie on my bed strangle cushion and sheets,
though I even can’t close my eyes,
so I go for a walk and stay out late at night,
hope that the bad times go by.

Something’s going wrong with the people in town,
it seems I’m no longer alone.

I’m moonstruck, baby I am moonstruck
I’m moonstruck, I’m bound by his light,
I’m moonstruck, It’s crazy but I’m moonstruck,
I’m moonstruck, not only at night.

I need somebody, need some buddy,
who drags my body out of this bloody…
Moonstruck

All my friends (yeah) they know what kinda man I could be,
when this big ole moon shines so bright,
so you better take care when you meet ma at the time,
even when you won’t see his light.

Something’s going wrong with the people in town,
it seems I’m no longer alone.

I’m moonstruck, baby I am moonstruck
I’m moonstruck, I’m bound by his light,
I’m moonstruck, It’s crazy but I’m moonstruck,
I’m moonstruck, not only at night.

Falling Star

Wittke / Wittke-Lüers

I sit all alone in my room, I worry and I wonder,
how many stars in the sky could shine there above,
some of these stars up above must have been lovers, long ago
but is there a star just for me that could be my love.

And she comes from the heavens above,
and it seems she falls into my arms,
but i’m too far to catch that falling star.

I sit all alone at the bar drinking and I wonder,
how many times did I fail to get near my star,
so many pretty girls all around me,
but the one that I desire, for me she’s too far.

And she comes from the heavens above,
and it seems she falls into my arms,
but i’m too far to catch that falling star.

I sit all alone in my room I worry and I wonder,
how many years must go by ‚til I find my love,
I searched and I searched to end my heartbreak,
but even if i lie on the ground, my last hope’s above.

I’ve never known a more sincere group of guys than the members of Velvetone. They are what we call down home types. Pals, buddies, the kind of guys you can hang out with, shoot a game of pool with or just share a beer. The music? No nonsense Rock’n’Roll. Tuff sensual grooves, rumbling bass, big drum beat, twangin‘ edgy guitar with a vocal that can change the mood from a cry to a scream to a soft melancholy whisper. It’s a good vibe. ‚On The Waterfront‘ meets ‚Dirty Harry‘ down the dead end of a lonely street to ‚Thunder road‘ is where the album takes me. Bogart sittin‘ in a smokey bar with John Wayne romancing Patsy Cline in Elvira’s Negligé. The mixture of influences on this record are like a brilliant concoction of your favorite whiskeys and gins with a tequila chaser that puts fire in your soul, thunder in your blood stream and a menacing grin on your kisser. Lights me up man and sends me out under thick black clouds chasing lost purple skies howlin‘ at the moon. That’s what Velvetone is. Now I’m in a mood.
