"The Chevalier" as written by Thomas Buchberger, Mario Hirzinger and Georg Neuhauser....
When silence comes
And I focus all on the inside
I take a look into my past
Full of wrongs, full of rights,
The story of my life

[Bridge:]
So many different places,
Enjoyed so many nights, I danced with chances
I made my way
Until this present day

[Chorus:]
You are one I'd give my life for
You are the one who is haunting my dreams
Oh how I long to be yours for evermore
For all time our love shall be prime

I still see you dancing...

That night in that shiny hall
The same old boring gentry, then you caught my eyes
You played your game, used all your sweetest words
I was entertained, but tell me are they true...

[Bridge:]
... things they say about you
A mason and a spy, he knows all beds,
Escaped the 'Leads'
Oh Chevalier tell me another lie

[Chorus]

Hold me
How can I?
A game
... like all your gambles?
The only
... until this day is gone?
Hold me
How can I?
A game
... like all your gambles?
What can I do to change your mind?

[Chorus]

I'll make this vow tonight

[Choir: x2]
I see all lights are low
show me I have to go
Venice can ease all my pain
Will do so once again

    General CommentThis song is inspired by the legends around Venetian womaniser Giocomo Casanova, and the male vocals represent Casanova's voice. The song's video fleshes out the scenerio. Singer Georg Neuhauser plays Casanova as a man obsessed with a mysterious woman (played by Ailyn, the Spanish singer from the band Sirenia, who supplies guest female vocals), to the point that he repeatly rejects the advances of two masked women. This woman admits she finds him entertaining, but she cannot bring herself to trust him.
