Mathias Schormann: Some of these days, we are going far away / I got nothing, Ma, to live up to / Darkness at the break of noon / I’d rather have the blues / YOU and ME (Atemzüge eines Sommertags) / I didn’t have a soul to throw my arms around / It’s hard to tell, it’s hard to tell / Oh, where have you been, my darling young one / Oh, what did you see, my darling young one / And I’ll tell it and speak it and think it and breathe it / Baby let me follow you down / Took me way down to that red hot land / Way down in my heart there is an ache and pain / I want to take a journey to the devil down below / Love, oh love, oh careless love / Who among them do they think could bury you / Blues on my mind / I ain’t got so many matches but I got so far to go / Carrie Lee, Carrie Lee, I wonder where in the world you can be / Come and sit by my side if you love me / It’s a long, long lane that has no turning / You keep yours and I hold on to mine.

Roberto Apa: You’re gonna quit me, baby / Dear landlord, please heed these words that I speak / Half my soul belongs to you / I get the blues for you baby, when I look up at the sun / I got a letter this morning / The blues came along and drove my spirit away / Next Time I See You / Giorno per giorno / I’ve been shooting in the dark too long, when something is not right it’s wrong / M’avresti consolato.
