lyrics from the EP „at nights we were dreaming of the sea“

DOWN THE DRAIN

you’ve cooked the books – cried for the moon
but things are always what they seem
say what you want – say what you want – dear me!

suit yourself and run the show
it’s your deal but it’s no big deal
the devil one know’s it better – than the devil one doesn’t know

down the drain – you really fucked it up this time, my friend
draw a blank – dry up and come to an end
down the drain – you really fucked it up this time, my friend
draw a blank – what a shame!


KINGDOM COME

you come back to your town – you come back to your friends
you ring the bell on your neighbours doors – and they all let you in
well it’s been a long time – and you traveled quite a while
up the mountains and riversides – less traveled by

don’t hold your breath, just start dancing
hurry up – follow the light
kingdom come and i missed you baby
you’re making the most of your time
heaven assailing and i’ll see you lately
outrageous standing – and you’re long, you’re long gone
for so many years

hey, life treats you kind – don’t make such troubles in your mind
loose yourself in that feathery clouds – you’ll see the rain is long gone
you came back to your town – you came back to your friends
your rang the bell on your neighbours doors – and they all let you in

BANGLADESH

dedicated to Bryony

i still have the same fears – my doubts and my hopes
figured out what’s in there for me
i am dressed at my sundays best – for the rest; as good as it gets
i am still searching for what’s wrong and what’s right
swim out to the ocean to see
for a moment i feel alright, i am fine, i am fine
i already miss you – but you’re not even gone
makes me think maybe you’ll stay
i thought that you felt much more love – than you’ve shown
you were heading out towards Bangladesh
i knew it’s the final farewell
nothing worth having that will stay – for a while, a little time

from time to time, i fall again – love is patient, love is kind
makes me laugh, when i only want to cry
sweep me of my feet, but i am still here

i like to know – where are you now?
well the days go fast – but the nights so slow
walking the streets and all i see is you
who tells me what else now i should long for?

i am loosing you – i am loosing you – i am loosing myself

LET IT GROW

we’ve grown up fast – on that passing lane
and we’ve gone trough – running all this years
we shall not stuck – stuck in our fears
even thou the days turn grey

graveyards – old man lying
graveyards – old woman dying
but now – we’ve got to let it grow
for now – we’ve got to let it grow
