I think many mp3 tag editors should read it (I have TagScanner on xp).
I'm now without any at hand but will verify later that I didn't say crap in my previous post!


Edit:
So I checked and TagScanner 6.0.20 show me the Lyrics in a dedicated section.
There is 4 sections: Main, Extended, Embedded covers & Lyrics.
Kalte Asche, Love Will Find A Way 2018 A.D. & Tempelhof have also their lyrics encoded.

But my LMFP mp3 have lost its fantastic cover! Probably a wrong move of mine while extracting it.

I have 2 live Alphaville concerts on my Hard drive in lossless Flac. They were downloaded from a DC++ client, and a site named Dimeadozen. These sites only allowed lossless Flac files with a textfile that explained the source. Lossless sources are perfect files from a recorder that attended the shows. If I spoke to Marian, I would ask would he allow the recorded shows to be uploaded here

Many thanks HalfNelson for the technical hints -where is the Thumb Up smiley when I need it- , I now realise VLC can't retrieve the metadata lyrics; I ran Tempelhof thru Mp3Tag and found out that the lyrics provided are partly... wrong! Or were the draft lyrics, who knows :)
I will check the other files later.

Cold blood - not a spark of gratefulness
Dumb ass - digging in our history
Airlift - not a snowball's chance in hell
Oh my - how can they be so daft to close it down

Let's go - gonna spread some vision now
Right choice - voting down their ignorance
Highrise - dancing cross the rooftops of Berlin
No fear - jumping on the aeroplane

Red tape - not a glimpse of fantasy
Blind dopes - levelling our history
Licence - ridicules the wildest dreams
Oh my - how can they ever dare to shoot 'em down

Let's go - gonna spread some vision now
Right choice - voting down their ignorance
Air race - cruising cross the rooftops of Berlin
Skyways - jumping on an aeroplane

Flying over Tempelhof...


If you are using Foobar, this component will download lyrics for the track

Is this any help?

One or two parts appear to differ from the released demo. I wonder how those early lyrics got online... Neat. Thanks for this!

Foobar provided the lyrics. I didn't search for them online


I'm gliding in the distance and watch the world go by
An orbit full of questions, a perforated sky

My guess is the early draft's lyrics got posted on the AV site at some point and those got copied over to Foobar's database or something... still interesting nonetheless!
