Lyrics

In the darkness of the night
You can always pick a fight
Now we’re waiting for the sun
It’s the moon we’re trying to outrun
We are always left behind
With no answers yet to find
But we got to face the truth
We are always on the move

It’s alright…

REFRAIN:
Don’t freak out
It’s alright
This life is ours
Not going home tonight
Don’t freak out
It’s alright
This life is ours
And it’s a crazy ride

In the brightness of the day
We have nowhere safe to stay
Now we’re waiting for the moon
Feeling trapped in big sun-flooded rooms
We want the stars to fil our hearts
To replace the broken parts
But our souls are living proof
We are always on the move

It’s alright….

REFRAIN

Summer nights feel somehow colder
Although I know you’re here
And we all feel so much older now
Since you’ve been gone
It’s not fair

I through a flower into your grave
And fell down with her
What I found was clarity
And further down despair

I miss you
Every time we drink and every time we talk
And I miss your steps
Every time we dance and every time we walk

Who will listen to my songs now
Cross-legged in the front row
Your place is empty and can’t be filled by
This black and white photo

I try to track you down in everything
Beautiful I see
But you know better than to show yourself
Life is a mystery

I miss you
Every time we drink and every time we talk
And I miss your steps
Every time we dance and every time we walk
And I miss you
Every time we dance and every time we walk
And I miss your voice
Every time we laugh and every time we talk

Lyrics

Far away we go
To where the river flows into
The ocean the wind blows
And my body turns to stone.

Uuuuuuuuuh

You stroke my hair
You took my hand
Said we’ve reached the Promised Land
And there you kissed my cheek
And you stole my heart you thief

It’s far away……..

The dress you gave to me
Still fits me perfectly
But what I’ve grown out of
Is the feeling we called love

It’s far away…..

But what we’ve grown out of
Ist he feeling we called love.

This is all I wanted
This is all I wanted
But I can’t hold it
I can’t keep it
Fingers lose is
Can’t retrieve it

This is all we wanted
This is all we wanted
But we can’t hold it
We can’t keep it
In the darkness
We will lose it

My future memory
I don’t want you to leave
(Please let me keep you, I’ll preserve and feed you, but you can’t stay)
I don’t want you to leave!
(Please let me keep you, I’ll preserve and feed you, but you went away)

This is all you wanted
This is all yours (hoch!)

But we can’t hold it
We can’t keep it
In the darkness
We will lose it

We can’t hold it
We can’t feel…

You and me
In a dream
Ice-cold water
Hard to find what I once found
In a place much warmer.
Anyhow, anyway, anywhere you go to
You will see what you saw
When I first approached you.
All the thoughts you have thought
Thinking about our story
You know them well
I know them, too.
The lust
The love
The bodies.
In a place we both know
We can’t be hiding.

You press pause
Although we are ready for love.

Another dream
I take a breath
The air we breathed together
It smells of hope
It tastes like pain
You ease your safety tether.
Anyhow, anywhere, anyone you talk to
Gets as much as I got
When I last approached you.
I still feel what I felt
When you were inside me
You showed me how our life could be
You drew it out precisely.
In a place we both know
We can’t be hiding.

You press pause
Although we are ready for love.

I am ready.
You are ready.
We are ready for love.

Turn that record on
It’s been quiet in here for far too long
When you talk it’s merely air and sound
I pretend to listen instead in my head I count

1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 8…

Please turn the heating on
Cause it’s been cold in here for far too long
Your eyes once used to warm my heart
Now it’s bad blood that’s heating us up

REFRAIN:
But you can only run too far
You’re scared to death of life and all its flaws
You shed your skin to travel light
Don’t think that’s how you win this fight.

Please put that candle on
Cause it’s been dark in here for far too long
Your smile once used to light up my day
Now we sit in the cold dark silence and you run away

REFRAIN

An inch between us
No chance to free us
I flinch at the sound of the passing bus
I clench my fist under the blanket
That we don’t share

I move too slowly, too vaguely
Can’t bridge the gap
Afraid to touch
What I want so much

Your hand on my hip
Stay still
Don’t move

REFRAIN:
You snore
I breathe
I’m awake while
You sleep
You stir
While I conquer
The mountains of blankets between us
The distance that stretches between us/one breath and another

The mould you’ve left in the mattress
Stays longer than you
Your smell on my pillow
Where nothing has ever happened
And never will
Probably never will

Oh I watch you sleep – you watch me
Eyes never meet
I nudge your feet
You’ll never know it was me

Your hand on my hip
Stay still
Don’t move

REFRAIN
