Lena Meyer-Landrut, the quirky German teen who won Eurovision 2010 by giving trauma rhythm, released her second album today. Entitled “Good News,” it includes the six songs still in the running for her to sing at Eurovision 2011. Germany clearly has an appetite for her music: the album currently tops sales on Amazon Germany, musicload.de, and the German iTunes charts. You’ll recognize all 12 tracks from Unser Song Fur Deutschland, the reality tv series that is choosing Lena’s tune for Düsseldorf.

The tracklisting for “Good News” is below, along with the lyrics (when available). Songs that have advanced to the final are in bold. Lena’s record company has a habit of blocking all YouTube content we try to embed on the site, but you can listen to samples of Lena’s songs on Amazon.de.

2  What Happened To Me [FINALIST]

What happened to me today?
What happened to you today?
Did I do something, boy?
Cause I lose time, time, timeOn my way to the coffee shop
So upset that I just stop
Because he caught me twinkling with his eye
Although I thought it was not my day
He turned me round in another way
And I just spend some time there on the fly

Where is my mind?
Where do I go?
Where can I stay?
Tragedies are killing me
Ohohoh

What happened to me today?
What happened to you today?
Did I do something, boy?
Cause I lose time, time, time

What happened to me today?
What happened to you today?
Did I do something, boy?
Cause I lose time, time, time

So I, ordered something to stay a while
Wishing, waiting for a smile
I take my time and I faided into blue
So we got late and he turned on the light
And we step out into the night
I want the same, this moment just with you

Where is my mind?
Where do I go?
Where can I stay?
Tragedies are killing me
Ohohoh

What happened to me today?
What happened to you today?
Did I do something, boy?
Cause I lose time, time, time

What happened to me today?
What happened to you today?
Did I do something, boy?
Cause I lose time, time, time

Where is my mind?
Where do I go?
Where can I stay?
Tragedies are killing me
Ohohoh

What happened to me today?
What happened to you today?
Did I do something, boy?
Cause I lose time, time, time

What happened to me today?
What happened to you today?
Did I do something, boy?
Cause I lose time, time, time

Did I do something, boy?
Cause I lose time, time, time

Hi, how are you?
And how was your day?
Did you think about
we had to say

was emotional
but i had to clear the airthese are the kind of things
that i send to test
our relationship

that if it dont kill us
it will make us even stronger
its not work at sience
is it?

actions
louder
much louder then words
have you ever stopped to feel how i feel

4  Maybe [FINALIST]

Maybe you and I,
Maybe you make me a lover,
‘Cause we’re something that you thinking about.

Maybe you gonna try,
for a long forgotten lover.
Maybe I do make me dumb.

Maybe you don’t cry,
for a long forgotten lover.
Maybe I think you better stop!

Maybe you decide that you go and told your mother,
if you have a lot of tears to drop.

I can not wait any longer,
that time is right to hit the road.
And I wonder what you follow me.

Maybe you gonna dance with me,
maybe its already or not.
Maybe but actually
it doesn’t who we matter to look.

Sorry, don’t remember … ups – I forgot!

Maybe you don’t lie,
and whatever you delivers,
it turns your inside out.

Well, I can not lie,
can’t say it any clearer,
’cause you tell me – No, I don’t.

Maybe you gonna try,
could we talk about banana.
There’s a matter what I guess he want.

Maybe you decide,
that we compliment each other.
Maybe I do make me dumb.

I can not wait any longer,
that time is right to hit the road.
And I wonder what you follow me.

Maybe you gonna dance with me,
maybe its already or not.
Maybe but actually
it doesn’t who we matter to look.

Maybe you take a chance with me,
maybe it’s already or not.
Maybe but actually,
It doesn’t really matter to look.

Sorry, don’t remember … ups – I forgot!

If you ask me – I don’t know.
All the chances that we want,
yes! we know I dream it all.

All of mine is just to be alone.

I can not wait any longer,
that time is right to hit the road.
And I wonder what you follow me.

Maybe you gonna dance with me,
maybe its already or not.
Maybe but actually
it doesn’t who we matter to look.

Maybe you take a chance with me,
maybe it’s already or not.
Maybe but actually,
It doesn’t really matter to look

Sorry, don’t remember … ups I forgot!
Sorry, don’t remember … ups I forgot!
Sorry, don’t remember … ups I forgot!

7  Push Forward [FINALIST]

It’s always the same
a window I can’t see through
don’t think I’ll ever do
it’s covered in rain
like me as I’m waiting for u
not sure I wanted to
like horses on a carrousel never win but always keep racing
standing here got time to kill
watching them a little although they dont know
all that I want is always to push forward
but since you’ve been gone I just wanna push rewind
if yesterday could only be tomorrow
whatever I do I always run behind
it’s always the same I’m staring at the ceiling
dont know where to begin
all that I see just symbols with no meaning
they could mean anything
like I sit in a hallway my thoughts are always reflecting
bouncing of the walls as if I was in a cold and empty house and I still don’t know
all that I want is always to push forward
but since you’ve been gone I just wanna push rewind
if yesterday could only be tomorrow
whatever I do I always run behind
if you could see how my world is tumbling down
or how it hurts when you’re not around
all that I want is always to push forward
all that I want is always to push forward
but since you’ve been gone I just wanna push rewind
if yesterday could only be tomorrow
whatever I do I always run behind
whatever I do I always run behind

8  A Good Day

9  Taken By A Stranger [FINALIST]

She’s got knuckle in her eye
He knows her
Cat coal
She can’t escape from telling lies
I heard her sayin’

Hey, mind if I take this chair?
Hey, mind if I take this chair?

He drops a puss
She looks annoyed
But he’s so mean
He thinks she has to be the one

Taken by a stranger
Stranger things are starting to begin
Turn into the danger
Trip me up and spin me round again

You’ve got some coffee on your collar
And you forgot to comb your hair
I can’t wait till I do better
Your hair
And I don’t care

Help it if you like it ‘cause I won’t be it tomorrow
None ever told you that you wouldn’t be taken

Taken by a stranger
Stranger things are starting to begin
Turn into the danger (it’s a risky business)
Trip me up and spin me round again

Ba da da lada dada

Oohoohooo

La la la la

Put the blindfold on his eyes
He saw her pic through
Can’t imagine her disguise
I heard her sayin’

Hey, mind if I take this chair?
Yeah, see if I care

Taken by a stranger
Stranger things are starting to begin
Turn into the danger (it’s a risky business)
Trip me up and spin me round again
