Das Letzte Einhorn

Songs & Lyrics

If you've heard the soundtrack that plays companion to the movie, you know how really great it is. For those of you that don't, I must state that it's probably one of my favourite CD's (perfect to listen to while writing). Unfortunately, there were some problems with the record label, and because of this, it's only available in Germany (lovely country!). For those of us that don't live in Germany, we can buy it online at places like Amazon.com, which is where I got my copy.

Lyrics

The Last Unicorn

When the last eagle flies
over the last crumbling mountain
And the last lion roars
at the last dusty fountain
in the shadow of the forest
though she may be old and worn
they will stare unbelieving
at the Last Unicorn

Iím alive, Iím alive

When the first breath of winter
through the flowers is icing
and you look to the north
and the pale moon is rising
and it seems like all is dying
and would leave the world to mourn
in the distance hear the laughter
of the Last Unicorn

Iím alive, Iím alive

When the last moon is cast
over the last star of morning
and the future has passed
without even a last desperate warning
then look into the sky where through
the clouds a path is formed
Look and see her how she sparkles
it's the Last Unicorn

Iím alive, Iím alive
Man's Road

Horizon
Rising
up to meet
the purple dawn
Dust Demon
Screaming
Bring an eagle to lead me on
For in my heart I carry such a heavy load

Here I am on manís road
Walking manís road
Walking manís road

Iím Hungry
Weary
But I cannot lay me down
The rain comes
Dreary
But thereís no shelter I have found
It will be a long time Ďtil I find my abode

Here I am on manís road
Walking manís road
Walking manís road

Moon Rising
Disguising
Lonely streets in gay display
The stars fade
The night shade
All that makes the world afraid
It waits in silence for the sky to explode

Here I am on manís road
Walking manís road
Walking manís road
Walking manís road
In the Sea

In the sea
The fish have learned to fly
on a moon lit night
on wings of silver
as the enchanted stars
Sail serenely by

Do they know
Where do Unicorns go?
Where do winged horses fly?
Narwhals lost at sea
And never seen again

Go
Go and ask the magpie
Where do Unicorns go?

In the trees
the birds have learned to speak
every color
they keep their secret
In a parade of clouds
Playing hide and seek

Do they know
Where do Unicorns go?
Where do winged horses fly?
Narwhals lost at sea
And never seen again

Does myth
and mystery lie
where the unicorns go?
Now That I'm A Woman

Once
I canít remember
I was long ago
Someone strange
I was innocent and wise
And full of pain
Now that Iím a woman
Everything is strange

Once when I was searching
Somewhere out of reach
Far away
in a place I could not find
or heart obey
Now that Iím a woman
Everything has changed
Everything has changed
Everything has changed
That's All I've Got To Say

Lir:
Iíve had time to write a book about
the way you act and look
But I havenít got a paragraph
Words are always getting in my way
Anyway, I love you

Thatís all I have to tell you
Thatís all I have to say

And now, Iíd like to make a speech about
the loves that touches each
But stumbling I would make you laugh
I feel as though my tongue were made of clay
Anyway, I love you

Thatís all I have to tell you

Iím not a man of poetry
Music isnít one with me
It runs from me. It runs from me

Lir:Amalthea:
And I tried to write a symphony
I lost the melody
Perhaps I only finished
And finish I suppose I never will
Anyway I love you
Thatís all I have to tell you
Thatís all I've got to say
Thatís all I've got to say
That's all I've got to say
Once when I was searching
somewhere out of reach
far away
in a place I couldnít find
or heart obey
Now that Iím a woman
Now I know the way
Now I know the way
Thatís all Iíve got to say

That's it! The rest is all beautiful background music.
