"Happy... for awhile...

Back in 2007 we released a 10" mini LP with Solitude FX under the alias of Solitairen Effekten... featuring only German sung minimal elektro tracks with a slight hint of NDW... "sfx" is another collection of songs by the German duo... this time much more new wave orientated... and even more melancholy as before... but it is not only sadness and solitude these songs
have to offer... there is also romance and devotion streaming through them...

The minimal and lo-fi character of the production only serves the songs in being authentic and straight from the heart... less is more proves again to be quite true...

For the artwork Dutch visual artist Hans de Wolf photographed some of his wood sculptures... which fit amazingly well to the mood and feeling of the music..." (Enfant Terrible, 2014)

Track Name: Walking With Shadows
In the middle of the night
she goes out for a walk
'cause the night is her only friend
so no one can see her tears
when she's talking to herself
sometimes
when memories get real

She walks alone
in the middle of the night
from far away
she sees the city lights
but her love story
will just last
until the morning comes
she is dancing with the ghosts
of the past to a melody
that's written in the stars

When she was a little girl
she took fairytales for real
love got its victory
in the end she believed

There's a woman
walking with shadows
in the middle of the night
I can see her tears

All day long she's sitting in her iron tower
hours pass her by
night will come
she leaves the house she goes for a walk
in the middle of the night
she's got starlight in her eyes
Track Name: Diary Of My Past
I run into the night
I fall into the darkness
that kills my soul

I run into night
I'm getting to the point
the point of no return
as I run to you

Try to feel the sunlight
the diary of my past
all the good things faded
they could not last
Track Name: Science Fiction Of Hearts
I am lost in darkest time
a dream of love
soul in my eyes
I saw a falling star
a million lightyears
away from now

And we will never be the same again
never be the same again
Science fiction of hearts

Little boy
looks out the window
late at night
he hears his parents fight
his mother cries again
he sings a sad song 'bout yesterday
when love was here to stay
a million lightyears
away from now

And we will never be the same again
never be the same again
Science fiction of hearts
Track Name: Join The Race
Love song carry me home tonight
I leave all my troubles so far behind
I sing a song about love and fear
but there's nobody to hear me

Fly, blackbird, fly
fly into a silver sky

People on the streets
they pass me by
they can not laugh they can not cry
and when I look
into somebody's face
I'm sure I will not join the race
I'm in space

Going around in circles
day by day
looking for a better place
to stay
I'm sure I will not join the race
I'm in space
Track Name: Die Vierte Dimension
Die vierte Dimension
Jugendträume
leere Straßen
nasser Asphalt

Die vierte Dimension
verlorene Tage
zeitlos, leer die Straßen
nasser Asphalt

Jugendtage
verweht schon bald
Horizont so fern
der Schmerz findet keinen Halt

Die vierte Dimension
alle deine Liebe
fortgeschwommen
auf leeren Straßen
auf nassem Asphalt
vergangener Tage
Alles ist gewesen
doch nichts vorbei

Die vierte Dimension......
Track Name: Starry Night
Seems there's nothing left
to say
to do
all that remains
is solitude

Is there another love song
I wrote for you?

You turned home
while night was cold
in your eyes
starry, starry night

All the leaves start to fall
they dance with the winds
you turned home
while moonlight was silver
on trees
and hills

Starry, starry night
in your dark eyes

Starry, starry night
is now in my eyes
forever in my eyes
Track Name: Happy
Standing in your doorway
your window's still alight
thinking of the good times
happy for a while

I used to be a dreamer
dancing all night long
believing crazy things
like you are the one

Oh girl you are a killer
sweet mistress of doom
checking all the boys
shooting at high noon

I leave you in the past
I don't call your name
I leave you in the dust
I don't ring your bell

Time to go home now
voices in my head
passing cars
echoes of a love

Looking back
your window's still alight
thinking of the good times
happy for a while

I leave you in the past
I don't call your name
I leave you in the dust
I don't ring your bell
Track Name: Illusions
Looking in the mirror
there's a lonely face you don't know
all you wanted was somebody
to share your love

Tears and happiness are all the same
illusions come and go
looking in the mirror
something left to find
something is left behind

Searching new adventures
you always find one more
diamonds on a rainy day
teardrops fall you drift away

Crossing the oceans of time
you try to feel the life sometimes
staring at the sun made you blind
illusions come and go......
they come and go

Oh and looking in the mirror
there's a lonely face you don't know
and all you wanted was somebody
to share your love
Track Name: In This Night
In this night......
In this life......
Oh in this night......
Oh in this life......

I dreamed of you......
