"Duel (Eye to Eye)" as written by and Michael Mertens Ralf Doerper....
Eye to eye stand winners and losers
Hurt by envy, cut by greed
Face to face with their own disillusions
The scars of old romances still on their cheeks
And when blow by blow
The passion dies sweet little death
Just have been lies
Some memories of gone by time would still recall the lies

The first cut won't hurt at all
The second only makes you wonder
The third will have you on your knees
You start bleeding, I start screaming

It's too late, the decision is made by fate
Time to prove what forever should last
Whose feelings are so true as to stand the test?
Whose demands are so strong as to parry all attacks?
And when blow by blow
The passion dies sweet little death
Just have been lies
Some memories of gone by time will still recall the lies

The first cut won't hurt at all
The second only makes you wonder
The third will have you on your knees

You start bleeding, I start screaming

The first cut won't hurt at all
The second only makes you wonder
The third will have you on your knees
You start bleeding, I start screaming

The first cut won't hurt at all
The second only makes you wonder
The third will have you on your knees
You start bleeding, I start screaming

The first cut won't hurt at all
The second only makes you wonder
The third will have you on your knees
You start bleeding, I start screaming

    General CommentWhat? No comments on this song that exudes 80's?

    I think the meaning is fairly obvious. It's comparing the whole history of a relationship to a knives duel, the lies and deceives are the ones that, blow by blow, kill the love... the lovers are nothing more than duelists.

    Very popy, somewhat obvious, but a bloody truth all the way.

    General CommentI think you're right about the relationship theme.

    However on the album Duel and Jewel share the same lyrics but Jewel is happy and upbeat whereas Duel is sharp and harsh. nice contrasts.
