Die Geschichte von Tom Gavron & The Symphonics beginnt 2006 in Dresden. In kammermusikalischer Besetzung mit Gesang, Piano, Cello und Violine entsteht die Band Tom Gavron & Ensemble. Dahinter steckt die Idee, Songs nicht mit Pop-, sondern klassischen Musikern zu schreiben und aufzuführen, wodurch ein sinfonischer Sound entsteht.

2008 erscheint das erste Album „Peter goes to the moon“. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt orientiert sich das Ensemble musikalisch am Genre der Filmmusik und des Musicals. Im Einklang dazu ist das erste Album stark von einer erzählerischen Atmosphäre geprägt.


released September 20, 2008

Track Name: Peter Goes To The Moon
PETER lies in his bed, feeling oh so sad!
He wants to rise to the moon and the stars up above
He blows in his blanket as the wind carries him high above…

PETER goes to the moon, he will arrive there soon
The earth becomes smaller and smaller as he drifts away
If you look to the sky you can only see his silhouette

But PETER, don’t go to the sun!
She will crash your bed like a puppet-house
And you will fall down
Down to the bottom of the ocean, PETER!

But PETER goes to the sun, ignoring the warnings of everyone
He never thought the sun would throw him down
He never thought the sun would be so cruel to him…

And when he approaches the sun the heat becomes unbearable
The sun destroys his blanket and PETER falls into the floods...
Track Name: This Town
This town is like a mouth…
He eats everything he can have
And if you’re not very careful
You soon will become sad!

The richness of the world
Lies here secured in giant boxes
But only the cold blooded townsfolk
Will have their money waiting!

But when night falls on the town
PETER misses his distant home
And every place and every tree
He feels so alone away from his home
“Is there someone waiting for me?”

PETER’s nightmares controlling his live
He doesn’t want to get up he has no will to survive
The doctors are helpless they only advice:
“Sir, if you not careful you must pay the price!”

And the meaning of the story…
Don’t fight for fame and glory
If darkness comes into your mind
Just go away or you’ll be blinded!
Track Name: Night Song
My dearest, when the sun comes down
I’ll be at your side and leave the town
The moon shines oh so bright tonight
I kiss your lips in the starry night…

Sleepy she falls in my arms
I hold her till the morning embraces our hearts
The angels sing their lullaby
Sent with wishes from the moonlit sky

‘Cause she is the reason that makes me feel
Like in these moments of poetry
Like Romeo and Juliet
But the end of the story is always sad

I don’t want to miss her face…
Track Name: Dreamland
Pack your things away- you have to leave the land
Whisper all the dishes to the roaring plank
Pack your things away- you have to leave your home!
Screams the roof and scream the walls and the telephone…

You will run to distant seas and country-sides
Don’t forget your target; keep it in your side!
You will run to distant seas and distant tribes
Till the truth will come your way and you will find…

Never land, here in your sight, you see it and you feel it
Here comes the place where the dreams have their homeland…
You see when the morning approaches
You see when the evening arrives

Here in dreamland…

But when PETER falls deep into the dreams that we all dream
Dreams that may fade or may stay a little while
PETER joins this world and all the different colours
He never thought of leaving for a long time

He’ll never wanna leave it!
Track Name: The Ocean
My heart is rising to the silent places
Away from all you’ve seen before
And when the nightly storm is raging
I hold you in my arms and save you…

I’m swimming through the night
To an island on the sea and I feel free for a while
The clouds running high through the endless sky
The ocean is all I adore
Track Name: Kaffeehaussong
I love you but I love coffee
Drinking it every day and night
So if you want to stay by my side
You should love coffee, too

Cooking it every day and twilight
Cooking it every day and twilight, baby…
So that I would love you, too
Love coffee and love you.

Track Name: Fool In Love
The smile upon her face
Follows me in all my ways
Through the days and through the nights
I’m just a fool in love

And when she looks at me
My heart stops beating suddenly
I can’t control myself, you see
I’m just a fool in love

See her eyes like the ocean when the sun comes up
And her hair is like a wild growing rose bush…
Which blooms in the shadow of a desert tree
Far from here in the silence of the days fading into the past

And all I have to say is
It’s hard for me to stay away
Then when she turns to me
I fall in love
Track Name: Between The Stars
Time is all I pray for, is all I want, is all I need…
I see your face, when I look into the mirror
It turns to grey and then it fades away...
It’s only you my love that I‘m missing
It’s only you my love that I’m dreaming of

Here I am riding between the stars
The years fly away too fast
What would I do if I could turn back time?

All alone

Your photographs are my only memories
They make me tearful, they make my sad…
Restlessness rules now in my life
It makes me sleepless, it makes me mad
Track Name: Farewell
Dreams may be wild or may be soft
Let them float in your mind
To see all the beauty in yourself
Join the world and take your time

To find what you are looking for
Take this gift and break new ground
‘Cause this is the time to make a chance
And love will come around…

Dry may be the ocean
But when PETER is on his way
Then rain will keep falling
On a wonderful green day
“My heart is here…

To bring the love that will shine your eyes
Like all the clear blue skies”

This may be the end of
All the songs that I will sing
But if you are brave then
Write your own and let them cling
To all the stars

And there is PETER going to the moon…
