Captain Nemo

Written by: Music: Holmberg Lyrics: Lancelot

This song is written by the Swedish band “Dive” – an ironic name!  This song was also covered by Swedish singer Cecilia Vennersten on her self titled album


original song & Video by band Dive

Sarah’s Version Live

Under the surface so crystal clear
Everyone was really tense
Waiting down there
He had his own world just like I had mine
We’ll go seperate ways ’til the next time
There are no words to say
As my friend swims away
Captain Nemo said, “Okay”
(Five, four, three, two, one)
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
(Love me when I’m gone)
Left ’em all alone, Nemo’s going home
And as I watched him, police boats approached
An alien force haunting us like ghosts
“Wish I could stay here and play for a while
But I must be on my way …”
The warmest of smiles
Then he dived into the waves
Among the other whales
Captain Nemo said, “Okay”
(Five, four, three, two, one)
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
(Love me when I’m gone)
Left ’em all alone, Nemo’s going home
Captain Nemo said, “Okay”
(Five, four, three, two, one)
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
(Love me when I’m gone)
Left ’em all alone, Nemo’s going home
Captain Nemo said, “Okay”
(Five, four, three, two, one)
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
(Love me when I’m gone)
Left ’em all alone, Nemo’s going home
Captain Nemo said, “Okay”
(Five, four, three, two, one)
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
(Love me when I’m gone)
Left ’em all alone, Nemo’s going home

The Second Element

Written by Music: Schwarz, Peterson, Meissner & Lyrics: Peterson, Weiss

This song was also covered by Swedish singer Cecilia Vennersten on her self titled album

Eyes were glancing
Hopes set high
But just another day went by
Tears are falling
Like never before
Still she’s staring at the door
Broken promise
Will you understand
My heart is in your little hand
I hear you call my name
And always you’ll be
Blood and soul part of me
My second element
I am longing for you
And always you’ll see
That you reflect on me
My second element
Are you missing me too?
Time keeps moving
She’s in so deep
And she cries herself to sleep
 Angels dancing
In the night
And she cuddles up real tight
Children’s laughter
Sunny day
Never more I go away
Just like and endless dream
And always you’ll be
Blood and soul part of me
My second element
I am longing for you
And always you’ll see
That you reflect on me
My second element
Are you missing me too?
And always you’ll be
Blood and soul part of me
My second element
I am longing for you
And always you’ll see
That you reflect on me
My second element
Are you missing me too?

Ship of Fools

written by Music: Peterson & Lyrics: Peterson, Andrews

Remember the day
When I first set my eyes on you and
You said the same
Seemed like everything was right for us
Endless nights of loving
All my doubts and fears went away
So tell me what went wrong
Now I need you
Do anything to get to you
‘Cos we’re riding on a ship of fools
Now you’re not the same
And all that’s left are memories of
The times we had
Seems like it always has to end this way
But now know your secrets
And the time is right
To tell
To tell me what went wrong
Can you hear me?
Do anything to get to you
Cos we’re riding on a ship of fools
Do anything to get to you
Cos we’re riding on a ship of fools

Once in a Lifetime

Written by:- Music: Peterson, Schwarz, Meissner & Lyrics: Peterson, Brightman

The italics lines (which are in Spanish), more spoken than sung and very faint in the distance, do not appear in the CD-booklet.  Thanks to Gene Laycock and MacKenzie, Nilda, and Roberto Gonzalez I can give the Spanish lines as well as a translation in English shown above.

The original version of “Once In A Lifetime” is on the Gregorian album Sadisfaction (1991), by the Sisters of Oz which was the name Frank Peterson gave to the two female vocalists featured on Sadisfaction. Despite the name, this female duo are not actual sisters. The dark-haired Susana Espelleta sings most of the lead vocals for the verses, while blonde Birgit Freud provides harmony during the choruses. As The Sisters Of Oz, they featured on only one other album: Sarah Brightman’s Dive – although it’s not really clear on what songs they sing.

Princessa performs “Once In A Lifetime” on her album I Won’t Forget You” (1999)

Cuando anochezca
Te esperare
Quiero volverte loco esta noche
Con la luna llena
Te esperare
Hoy moriras entre mis brazos
Nunca soñaste algo igual
Let me dive in
To pools of sin
Wet black leather on my skin
Show me the floor
Lay down the law
I need to taste you more

Then I feel your sea
Raining down on me
Can this be my once in a lifetime
Hell’s at heaven’s door
As I need you more
You know you’re my once in a lifetime

Todo tu cuerpo temblara
Pero esta vez, es realidad
Aunque el tiempo pase
Nunca, nunca lo olividaras
Sera
Solo una vez en tu vida

When you take me
And make me cry
Then I feel you satisfy
Show me the cage
It’s all the rage
And lock it up

Found a part of me
That’s a mystery
That will be just once in a lifetime
When the moon is high
Passion never dies
Will you want me for all a lifetime

Once in a lifetime
Once in a lifetime
Once in a lifetime

Giving you my soul
Letting you control
Took away a part of my lifetime
Memories of you
Left me black and blue
Now I know you’re once in a lifetime

Found a part of me
That’s a mystery
That will be just once in a lifetime
When the moon is high
Passion never dies
Will you want me for all a lifetime

Found a part of me
That’s a mystery
That will be just once in a lifetime
When the night falls
I will wait for you
I want to drive you crazy tonight
With the full moon
I will wait for you
Today you will die in my arms
You never dreamed about something like this

All your body will tremble
But this time it will be real
Though time passes by
You will never, never forget it
It will be
Only once in your lifetime

Cuando anochezca
Te esperare
Quiero volverte loco esta noche
Con la luna llena
Te esperare
Hoy moriras entre mis brazos
Nunca soñaste algo igual
When you’re near me
I close my eyes
I want to feel you by my side
When you kiss me
I close my eyes
Want you by my side
When I realise there’s no telling lies
Then I know it once in a lifetime
Making love to you
Everytime it’s new
You know you’re my once in a lifetime
Todo tu cuerpo temblara
Pero esta vez, es realidad
Aunque el tiempo pase
Nunca, nunca lo olividaras
Sera
Solo una vez en tu vida

When you touch me
I burn inside
Cold and shiver down my spine
When you take me
So hot in love
Can’t get enough

When I realise there’s no telling lies
Then I know it once in a lifetime
Making love to you
Everytime it’s new
You know you’re my once in a lifetime
Once in a lifetime
Once in a lifetime
Once in a lifetime
Giving all I’ve got
Now you love me not
You’re my lover once in a lifetime
Taking care of you
Everytime it’s new
You know you’re my once in a lifetime…

When you’re by my side
And I want you hot
When I close my eyes then I touch the skies
When I realise there’s no telling lies
Making love to you
Everytime it’s new

Cape Horn

Written by music: Peterson, Wehr – Instrumental

The dialogue in this song is an extract from the movie “Mutiny on the Bounty”:


“It was like riding a cork over a waterfall, sir, and wind is not the name for what blows in your face, it’s something made of iron, swings at you from the west, never changing day in and day out, with seas as high as the neigh-mast. We had life-lines rigged everywhere, sir, and there were still sixteen men washed overboard.”
“Cold?”
“Three men froze in the yards, frozen stiff, sir. Couldn’t get them down without cutting their fingers loose from the shrouds. I was lucky…”

A Salty Dog

Written by Music: Brooker & Lyrics: Reid
The song originally comes from the band Procol Harum (maybe better known for the song A Whiter Shade of Pale, which Sarah has also covered) and this song is the title track of their third album, A Salty Dog (1969), The Greatest Hits album and 2 live albums.

All hands on deck
We’ve run afloat
I heard the captain cry
Explore the ship
Replace the cook
Let no one leave alive
Across the straits
Around the horn
How far can sailors fly
A twisted path
Our tortured course
And no one left alive
We sailed for parts
Unknown to man
Where ships come home to die
No lofty peak
Nor fortress hold
Could match our captain’s eye
Upon the seventh sea sick day
We made our port of call
A sand so white
And seas so blue
No mortal place at all
We fired the gun
And burned the mast
And rowed from ship to shore
The captain cried
We sailors wept
Our tears were tears of joy
How many moons
And many Junes
Have passed since we made land
A salty dog
The seaman’s log
Your witness, my own hand

Seven Seas

Written by Peterson & Andrews

Waters deep
Waters blue
The gently flow
From me to you
Your coloured voice
It’s vibrant toned
The hidden force
Of the big crystal blue
And by the light
Of the silvery moon
The wild horses
Come running home
Miles apart
But still entwined
I like to think
That you sit here too
And let your thoughts
And let your soul
Be gently lulled
By what’s in front of you
Too many ashore
And the distant land
The seas unite
Bringing me to you

Johnny Wanna Live

Written by: Music Peterson, Cretu, Lyrics: Cretu, Hirschburger

Originally recorded by the German singer Sandra in 1992 on her album

I got something on my mind
Makes me sad and makes me cry – oh no
Johnny wanna live
Just an ordinary day
An animal will pass away – oh no
Johnny wanna live
Who’s to say he got no rights
Even not a right to life
Don’t know why it leaves you cold
Don’t know how to make it show – oh no
Johnny wanna live
Johnny wanna live
Got to give his skin away
For coats the wear on summer days – oh no
Johnny wanna live
Beauty aid and all the rest
Come directly from a test – oh no
Johnny wanna live
Through his eyes I look inside his heart
He can feel like me an you
Can’t defend himself cause he can’t talk
And this is why I talk to you
Johnny isn’t just a name
He stands for every creature’s pain – on no
Johnny wanna live
Johnny wanna live
Go an try to look inside his heart
You can find your own mistakes
Try to hide them thinking he can’t talk
But he can read them on your face
Tell me why it leaves you cold
I swear I’m gonna to make it show – oh no
Johnny wanna live – oh no
Johnny wanna live (repeat some times)

By Now

Written by Music: Schwarz, Meissner, Peterson Lyrics: Schwarz, Brightman

I look in your eyes
And I see a little bit of heaven in view
I face your disguise and
I See you running too
A teardrop of silence
That’s dissipating in an ocean of blue
So let me dive under
In memory of you
By now it’s loving and affection
By now it’s love
By now it’s loving and affection, baby
By now it’s love
And will you still see me
When I am lying under heavenly skies
And will you still feel me
When I reach out to you
And when it’s all over
Just let me dive into the
Pools of your eyes
And then I’ll float timeless
Into a part of you
By now it’s loving and affection
By now it’s love
By now it’s loving and affection, baby
By now it’s love
By now it’s loving and affection
By now it’s love
By now it’s loving and affection, baby
By now it’s love
By now it’s loving and affection
By now it’s love
By now it’s loving and affection, baby
By now it’s love

Island

written by Music: Peterson Lyrics: Peterson, Andrews

What’s life revealing
But base reality
Take it how you want to
Nothing comes for free
We go all round believing
In perfect harmony
Who tells us that’s the right way?
Just open up and see
Like living on an island
I’m lost no land in sight
Like living on an island
I’m drifting without end
Somehow believe in this dream of life
Like living on an island
Never ending questions
A trip through darkened space
Sometimes getting nearer
To question asked with grace
But in the end it’s all believing
In whichever way you will
The answer or the mystery
Once black is now too white
Like living on an island
I’m lost no land in sight
Like living on an island
I’m drifting without end
Somehow believe in this dream of life
Like living on an island
Like living on an island
I’m lost no land in sight
Like living on an island
I’m drifting without end
Somehow believe in this dream of life
Like living on an island
Like living on an island
I’m lost no land in sight
Like living on an island
I’m drifting without end

When It Rains In America

Written by Music: Schwarz, Meissner, Peterson Lyrics: Peterson, Schwarz, Brightman

Do you wanna feel freedom
Do you wanna see sun and rain
Do you wanna be near me
Do you wanna light up the way
A strange magical feeling
That maybe baby we’ll find someday
I thought I heard you laughin’
I never wanted to make you cry
I only needed a reason
To see a teardrop in your eye
‘Cause lovin’ you keeps me from the storm
When it rains in America
There’s a place we can run to
Far away from the city stare
Where’s the ocean’s a desert
But the wind still blows in your hair
Where we can watch the sun go down
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
Cause loving you keeps me from the storm.
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America

La Mer

Written by Music: Peterson Lyrics: Peterson, Brightman

The book Whale Nation by Heathcote Williams, where Sarah got the words spoken in from, uses the phrases “Ancient, unknown mammals” and “A velvet energy”, and also refers to whales as “like Buddhists” the long poem.  [Thanks to Pickle3985 & Jos Van Geffen for this info.]


Ancient unknown animals
On a stormy sea
Like Buddha in the water
A velvet energy
As the night takes over
The spirits of the deep
Marvel at his majesty
The whale is in his sleep
Oh, la mer
You’re shimmering through
Oh, la mer
Magnificent blue
Shimmering through the water
In search of sanctuary
Currents travel faster
In alien territory
Dancing in the distance
In a puff of spray
In a single moment
The dolphin glides away
Oh, la mer
You’re shimmering through
Oh, la mer
Magnificent blue
Oh, la mer
You’re shimmering through
Oh, la mer
Magnificent blue
Oh, la mer

The Second Element II

written by Music: Peterson, Schwarz, Meissner Lyrics: Peterson, Pirs

Burning fire
A light in the dark
Shining day and night for me
Flowing water
The source of our life
Covering the world
Gentle air blowing
Caressing my face
Carry me into dreams of love
The endless symphony …
Wasn’t it you
Who was filling my dreams
The second element
Everywhere you are rife
Wasn’t it you
Who was filling the streams
The second element
With the power of life
Creeks are winding
Just seeking their way
Hardly tryin’ to reach the sea
Raindrops falling
From skies to the earth
Bringing life to you and me
Lakes of silence
A magical sound
Keeping secrets in the ground
A perfect harmony …
Wasn’t it you
Who was breaking the light
The second element
And the rainbows arise
Oh, wasn’t it you
Who was standing a fight
The second element
From the earth to the skies
Wasn’t it you, who was filling my dreams
Wasn’t it you, who was filling the streams
Wasn’t it you, who was breaking the light
Wasn’t it you?
