Dirk Radloff If you like Rockabilly with a touch of Punk and Country you should not hesitate to give this a try. Kathy has not just an amazing life, but also a voice like an chameleon and excellent guitar-skills. Especially when she kicks on the gas-pedal in pogo-compatible tempos it's jaw-dropping. Favorite track: My Amazing LIfe.

Track Name: Alleycat
You should have known I didn’t love you
You should have known I never would
I TOOK YOU DOWN - I DIDN'T HAVE TO
I TOOK YOU DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, BECAUSE I COULD
I got the morals of an alley cat
I hit the road and I won’t be back
I TOOK YOU DOWN - I DIDN'T HAVE TO....
Only wanted to get higher
Than the place I was before
Babe, I just can’t give you any more
I got the morals of an alley cat
I hit the road - and I won’t be back
I TOOK YOU DOWN - I DIDN'T HAVE TO....
Track Name: Wir Schaffen Alles
WIR SCHAFFEN ALLES, ICH UND DU
AUF ENGLISCH HEISST DAS ME AND YOU
ICH LIEBE DICH, ICH LUEGE NICHT
ES WIRD FUER IMMER SEIN

Du bist hier, du bliebst bei mir
Und ich bin nie allein
Du bist mein Miezekater
Und du bist mein Sonnenschein

WIR SCHAFFEN ALLES, ICH UND DU....

Ich zweifle nicht daran
Ja, ich bin dein Chaos Girl
Du bist mein Fixit Man
WIR SCHAFFEN ALLES, ICH UND DU

WIR SCHAFFEN ALLES, ICH UND DU....
Track Name: Sleazeball Devil Blues
The devil doesn’t always show his horns,
He hides them pretty well
Didn’t feel I’d struck a deal that started out in hell
His cloven hooves reside inside quite ordinary shoes
NOW I'M CAUGHT BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE BLUES

His clientele adore him, they fail to understand
That he’s a touchy-feely, crawly-creepy sleazeball of a man
He covers his misogyny with bonhomie and booze
NOW I'M CAUGHT BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE BLUES

I should have told the world that this is where the story ends
But I took that filthy money, I was civil to his friends
I gotta pay my bills, so it was lose, lose, lose
NOW I'M CAUGHT BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE BLUES

The devil doesn’t always show his horns,
He hides them pretty well
I didn’t feel I’d struck a deal that started out in hell
I gotta pay my bills, so it was lose, lose, lose
NOW I'M CAUGHT BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE BLUES
Track Name: My Amazing LIfe
You think I’m riding high on some kind of gravy train
But you’d run a country mile if you could see inside my brain
I got this two-headed monster and it’s tearing me apart
As I lie here in the dark
One head got the fantasy, the other got the facts
And they’re laying down an album with a thousand tiny tracks
Every track it’s got a story, every story got a sting
And I can’t do a goddamn thing

I GOT THE SHAKES - I GOT THE CHILLS
PAID MY DUES BUT I JUST CAN'T PAY MY BILLS

I paint a pretty picture and I tell some pretty tales
But you wouldn’t wanna be there when I’m coming off the rails
You see this amazing life I lead
But you don’t see me bleed

I GOT THE SHAKES ...

You think I’m riding high on some kind of gravy train
But you’d run a country mile if you could see inside my brain
I never even was who you think I’m supposed to be
So call your dogs off me

I GOT THE SHAKES .....
Track Name: Everything and More
Won’t you forgive me if I’m sounding like I’ve had too much to drink?
But I just gotta say what’s on my mind before I stop to think
It’s getting clearer by the minute we’re a whole lot more than friends
I wanna lay it on the line before the evening ends

cause I CAN'T SET NO LIMITS, I CAN'T KEEP NO SCORE
I'LL JUST GIVE YOU EVERYTHING - EVERYTHING AND MORE

I’ve been burned just one too many times for dancing in the flame
And I was shutting out the world so I could shut out the pain
But when you talk about sweet nothing ‘cross the table here tonight
I don’t stand a chance in hell of putting up a fight

cause I CAN'T SET NO LIMITS, I CAN'T KEEP NO SCORE
I'LL JUST GIVE YOU EVERYTHING - EVERYTHING AND MORE

I wouldn’t wanna lie to you so I’ll tell you from the start
That I got trouble running through my veins and cracks around my heart
And I’ve done so many stupid things it’s hard to sleep at night
But I still believe in miracles, and I’ve just seen the light
I CAN'T SET NO LIMITS, I CAN'T KEEP NO SCORE
I'LL JUST GIVE YOU EVERYTHING - EVERYTHING AND MORE
Track Name: Already Dead
You said we’re gonna make it and
You said it’ll be okay
You said that I was your baby
Then you blew it away
You said that I was crazy
You said my friends are scum
You said, you said ,you said, you said too much
And now we’re done. Cant you see
I’m not listening? - pull the trigger, go ahead
YOU CAN'T KILL OUR LOVE, IT'S ALREADY DEAD

We could have had that golden future
But that’s never gonna be
You took the sunshine out of everything
This is the end for you and me
I’m not listening - pull the trigger, go ahead
YOU CAN'T KILL OUR LOVE, IT'S ALREADY DEAD

You said we’re gonna make it and
You said it’ll be OK
You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied and now
There’s hell to pay
YOU CAN'T KILL OUR LOVE, IT'S ALREADY DEAD
Track Name: Tattered Flag
I swore that I’d go back one day
I truly thought I would
But nowadays I just don’t feel so sure
Disillusioned, disenfranchised
Where did I go wrong?
ENGLAND DOESN'T LOVE ME ANY MORE
NOT ANY MORE...THEY SHUT THE DOOR
ENGLAND DOESN'T LOVE ME ANY MORE

They’re tearing down the places
That I used to hold so dear
My childhood dreams are gone forever more
I paid my taxes, paid my rent
I thought I knew what England meant
but ENGLAND DOESN'T LOVE ME ANY MORE....


Knowing that it’s over hurts me more than I can say
It’s time I threw that tattered flag away
Wars were fought and blood was shed
Today we still salute the dead
But what exactly were they fighting for?
The values that I understood
Are well and truly gone for good
ENGLAND DOESN'T LOVE ME ANY MORE...
Track Name: Wrong Universe
There’s something here that I can’t ignore
Something in the room that wasn’t there before
Idle conversation never felt this good
There’s a current running deeper than it really should
And it feels so fine,
But it couldn’t get any worse
WRONG TIME - WRONG PLACE - WRONG UNIVERSE

I’ve seen trouble,I’ve seen pain
And I know full well you’ve done the same
I got no time for love’s young dream
Wanna throw the match on the kerosene
And it feels so fine,but it couldn’t get any worse
WRONG TIME - WRONG PLACE - WRONG UNIVERSE

In a parallel life we could do no wrong,
We could do anything, all night long
It’s another dream in another ditch
Ah Destiny, you’re such a bitch
And it feels so fine,but it couldn’t get any worse
WRONG TIME - WRONG PLACE - WRONG UNIVERSE
Track Name: Lucky Star
The hand of fate that wrote my song
I know it got the story wrong
But my lucky star’s still gonna shine
I’m giving it one last shot, one last time
ONE LAST TIME...ONE LAST TIME
THIS DIRTY RIVER WILL TURN TO WINE
I'M GONNA FOLLOW THESE DREAMS OF MINE
I'M GIVING IT ONE LAST SHOT, ONE LAST TIME

Too many journeys I took in vain
I can’t have this life again
But it’s not over and I feel fine
I’m giving it one last shot, one last time
ONE LAST TIME...ONE LAST TIME
THIS DIRTY RIVER WILL TURN TO WINE
I'M GONNA FOLLOW THESE DREAMS OF MINE
I'M GIVING IT ONE LAST SHOT, ONE LAST TIME
Track Name: I Let the Devil in
I was doing alright, feeling fine
Doing my thing, taking my time
In came the Devil with his bag of tricks
Now there’s a pain in my heart that nothing can fix
HELP ME GOD, I LET THE DEVIL IN

What’s yours is yours, what’s mine is mine
I didn’t think about that when I crossed the line
In came the devil, he was dressed in black
Now he’s written his name right across my back
HELP ME GOD, I LET THE DEVIL
HELP ME GOD, I LET THE DEVIL IN

You was temptation
Yeah you was temptation
You was temptation
From head to tail

Been doing this thing so many years
All I ever get is blood and tears
But if the devil came to my door
I’d still come crawling back for more
HELP ME GOD....
Track Name: Sayonara, Adios
I didn’t see, and I didn’t know
Cause you didn’t let your colours show
I got wise, I was out that door
I’ll be blue forever more

SAYONARA, ADIOS AND AU REVOIR
ARRIVEDERCI AND GOODNIGHT MY FRIEND, BONSOIR
THERE'S A THOUSAND WAYS FOR US TO SAY GOODBYE
THERE AIN'T ONE TO TAKE THESE TEARDROPS FROM MY EYE

If it isn’t yours, then you shouldn’t touch
But you went too far, and you took too much
You burned me out like a hungry flame
Life goes on, but it’s not the same

SAYONARA, ADIOS AND AU REVOIR

In the summer breeze, in the cold night air
The wrong you did is always there
The years roll by, and it lingers on
You broke my heart, I sing my song

SAYONARA, ADIOS AND AU REVOIR
Track Name: My Amazing Life - alternate version
You think I’m riding high on some kind of gravy train
But you’d run a country mile if you could see inside my brain
I got this two-headed monster and it’s tearing me apart
As I lie here in the dark
One head got the fantasy, the other got the facts
And they’re laying down an album with a thousand tiny tracks
Every track it’s got a story, every story got a sting
And I can’t do a goddamn thing

I GOT THE SHAKES - I GOT THE CHILLS
PAID MY DUES BUT I JUST CAN'T PAY MY BILLS

I paint a pretty picture and I tell some pretty tales
But you wouldn’t wanna be there when I’m coming off the rails
You see this amazing life I lead
But you don’t see me bleed

I GOT THE SHAKES ...

You think I’m riding high on some kind of gravy train
But you’d run a country mile if you could see inside my brain
I never even was who you think I’m supposed to be
So call your dogs off me

I GOT THE SHAKES .....
