YOUNG FAST RUNNING MAN (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) there's a boy in this town they call the runnin' child the word is he had even run to his birth and they said that if this child doesn't stop to run as fast he'll soon leave the edge of the world well, the boy didn't care, and he ran without cease passed a long road full of failures and every time the success felt the same 'cause there was somethin' new to attain can't catch the young fast runnin' man can't catch him even though I'm fast can't catch the young fast running man can't catch the young fast runnin' man in search of more and more even thoughts began to run sleepless nights makin' plans 'cause the race of life - got to keep on clear destination's unknown why can't he stop? why can't he be just satisfied? when will he be tired of life? too much zest for action that drives him on and on and on and on and on… and on can't catch the young fast runnin' man can't catch him even though I'm fast can't catch the young fast runnin' man can't catch him even though I'm fast can't catch the young fast runnin' man can't catch him even though I'm fast can't catch the young fast runnin' man can't catch the young... can't catch myself http://youngfastrunningman.com

Little Thing 02:46
LITTLE THING (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) I write down these lines just to keep it in mind what happens to me? surrounded by this wonderful river where I can be free no troubles over there all worries left behind 'cause all these problems of mine are just a little thing are just a little thing I set off from a world of continuous pressure exploiting needs no restrictions, just natural treasures now I can breathe no worries over there all sorrows far behind and all our problems in mind are just a little thing are just a little thing magic waters take me away horizon is waitin' for me endless streams make my way help me to break free from these little things all these little things from these little things all these little things http://youngfastrunningman.com

The Usher 03:33
THE USHER (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) hours to stand look at the time no time on her hands this thought on her mind all these hours matters to mend what will be ours in the end
 10 pages to fill the weaker self to kill he paid money for it and what will come off of this shit? all these hours matters to mend what will be ours in the end? will it all pay off? (3x) old girl with a broom and a sisyphean task in an emptied party room pauses to ask oh all these hours 
matters to mend what will be ours in the end will it all pay off? (3x) will it all pay off? (3x) will it all pay off? (3x) mh (3x) http://youngfastrunningman.com

JACKHAMMER BLUES (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) I got to tell that I don't care
if it's warm or cold out there
'cause I gotta hammer on every afternoon growlin' thunder, lightning, hail marchin' like a soldier over hill and dale yes, I know I got only one thing to do my name is Jack and this is the jackhammer blues I'm workin' all day but I still got work to do my name is Jack and this is the jackhammer blues ain't got no time but I'm in a jackhammer mood oh the jackhammer blues standin' still in scarecrow style the only move is the wink of my eye my day seems to be a continuous loop crooked vultures circlin' me but for all that I feel free 'cause there's still hope that work will stop real soon my name is Jack and this is the jackhammer blues I'm workin' all day but I still got work to do my name is Jack and this is the jackhammer blues ain't got no time but I'm in a jackhammer mood oh the jackhammer blues oh the jackhammer blues http://youngfastrunningman.com

Endless Time 03:24
ENDLESS TIME (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) warm red sunlight burnin' in my face while old church bells ringin' out in space the soft clean air I'm breathin' - of 1000 smells while lonely birds are singin' the moments' peace though I know the problems that stamp the time restless hunters - sweaters of worthless mines but satisfaction feelin' overcomes in this endless time light cool winds are blowin' through the fields while hundreds of points are sparklin' in the rushing sea the variety of colors of circulating leaves bloomin' meadows I'm smellin' make my happiness complete though I know the problems that stamp the time greedy hunters - sweaters of worthless mines and though false friends are feignin' with deludin' eyes in search of unimportance of bigger size but satisfaction feelings overcome in this endless time, ooh this endless time, mh ooh this endless time, ooh this endless time, mh ooh http://youngfastrunningman.com

DOWN THE STREETS (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) dressed in mickey mouse style two cheeky boys met in school only mischief in mind breakin' all teachers' rules remember the time we were walkin' down the streets jags at campfires women, and playin' the fool road trips - a million miles hangin' around, hoppin' pools remember the time we were walkin' down the streets the way home late at night through bavarian fields keys and strings we combine puzzlin' over our tunes to play them worldwide you'll be forever my dude oh forever my dude oh forever my dude remember the time we were walkin' down the streets thanks for the time we were walkin' down the streets unpayable times we were walkin' down the streets our old friends Jeremia Fawbee-Fellas and Attune playin' with you on my side thanks for this good time my dude for this good time my dude for this good time my dude remember the time we were walkin' down the streets thanks for the time we were walkin' down the streets unpayable times we were walkin' down the streets http://youngfastrunningman.com

SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) white-black rainbows and bottomless seas prospering deserts and shrinkin' trees acceleration in the daily grind while deceleratin' the passin' of time sometimes you fall, sometimes you rise all these different things in life you'll find yourself somewhere, oh, in between eastern sunsets and colorful mines happy sadness and wordless rhymes generations and their peaceful fights fights for receivin', oh, restricted rights sometimes you fall, sometimes you rise all these different things in life you'll find yourself somewhere, oh, in between http://youngfastrunningman.com

GEORGE, THOMAS, ABE & BEN (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) I make you get down on your knees while on hunt for big salaries pope and judge, I make them smile let 'em forget their principles just to satisfy their needs I'll split all continents make god and god and god shake their hands but more and more becomes less be careful before you become possessed of me you'll do anything for me (4x) just a peace of paper in a hand grinnin' faces with avarice all over the land George and Thomas, Abe and Ben ain't got no heart, just these tiny heads you call saints greedy envy for a bill let you forget your own brother you killed George and Thomas, Abe and Ben ain't got no soul, just a bunch of strangers once been friends you'll do anything for me you're just a hungry pet I feed you'll do anything for me you're just a marionette I lead you'll do anything for me you're just a hungry pet I feed you'll do anything for me you're just a marionette I lead (just a piece of paper in a hand) you'll do anything for me (a bunch of tiny heads you call saints) you're just a hungry pet I feed (just a piece of paper in a hand) you'll do anything for me (a bunch of tiny heads you call saints) you'll do anything...

Farewell 03:28
FAREWELL (Music & Lyrics by Fabian Hertrich) as night meets the day pale moonlight on empty cobblestone as dog has taken the rooster's job I'm wide awake, the world is not wrought iron gates seem to wave me goodbye settin' forth, the wind in my sail while I gently wail farewell my mother - father goodbye won't promise I'll come back some time farewell my mother - father goodbye won't promise I'll come back some time a gull appears above choosin' this place for its final breath like those memories of this town they're finally bound to drown farewell my mother - father goodbye won't promise I'll come back some time farewell my mother - father goodbye can't promise I'll come back some time won't promise I'll come back some time can't promise I'll come back some time http://youngfastrunningman.com

SPANISH SILENCE (Music by Fabian Hertrich) (instrumental) http://youngfastrunningman.com

about

The acoustic guitar is the common thread within the songs of Young Fast Running Man’s first album YFRM. The listener journeys through various styles of music and on his way, he experiences slide guitars, blues harps and acoustic fingerstyle picking, improved by using mandolin, violin, brass, or instruments from foreign cultures. It’s like a mélange of old and new, close and far, familiar and unfamiliar. Yet, influences by the forefathers of 60s Blues Rock like Eric Clapton or Peter Green, and songwriter legends like Nick Drake or Mark Lanegan stay ingrained in the songs of the artist Fabian Hertrich a.k.a. Young Fast Running Man.
