Bright In This Place

So I leave behind the boarders
All my life they stood up high
Forcing me to take all orders
Growing endless into the sky

And my little eyes are growing
As I spy the small white line
Greeting me on the horizon
While the birds around me cry

And they sing about a place where the colours of the houses
Reflect your soul that's doing rollie pollies

As I'm jumping through the storm that's
hitting me with 90 miles
In an hour I release the power
That's deflowering my mind

And I'm dancing through the blossoms
Everyone carries one here
Everyone of them carries a story
Floating around them in the air

And the blossoms smell of being who you want to be
Leaving behind your personality
Just to run back into it by chance
When the sky above you has turned dark

But I know there's always
A spark at night
A light that shines
If I lose my faith

It's always bright in this place

And now my suitcases are packed but
I can't help but looking back
And the city smiles with it's wide eyes
And says "bye now"
As I whisper "Cheers!"

But I know there's always
A spark at night
A light that shines
If I lose my faith

It's always bright in this place (x4)


Luise

Her eyes like a carribean sunset
Her trembling lips are pure but strictly sealed
And I can see her trying to get a little closer
But she dissolves as soon as I lean in

Luise, Luise

You seem a little sad, honey
Has your day really been that bad
I heard you cry yourself to sleep last night

Luise, Luise (x2)

And if you let me into your comfortability zone
I know that you'll be dancing in the middle of the room
And if you give us the chance to collide
I promise I will catch you and you won't have to hide again

Luise, Luise (x4)


Motionless

Silence hung frozen in the air
Every step took them closer to the pier
Where he would face the distance
While the darkness swallowed him whole
Devouring his old and aching bones

The hour was late she sat alone with no light
Patiently watching her heart swing from side to side
With every attempt to rest her tired eyes
The smell of burning wood got a little stronger

Outside his window the sun was haunting the moon
Years ago December had absorbed June
Roses may blossom, Roses may bloom
But once their thorns taste flesh they inflame it with numbing wounds

Motionless (x3)

Bitter tastes intoxicate your mind
Entering spikes will misplace your spine
In his despair he isolated his heart
Until it was cold, silent, distant and dark


Shaking Apes


She's
Pressing her chin against her knees
Pulling the sheets up to her hair
As cold air fills the room
Goosebumps keep her from seeking

Ways
To an imaginary place
Where she escapes from the greyness
Of daily replaced beds
And late night acquaintance

And in the corners of her mind
She knows that she can stop at any time

But when all eyes go up and down
And jaws descend
Delivering a decent show
While her thighs are bent
And she's bent on deception
Looking to end up making a real connection

Sold!
He drags her through the winds that blow
Fighting it's way into the holes
In her clothes
Acapulco Gold captures her vocal folds

And in the corners of her mind
She knows that she can stop at any time

But when all eyes go up and down
And jaws descend
Delivering a decent show
While her thighs are bent
And she's bent on deception
Looking to end up making a real connection

Shaking Apes (x3)
Are so, so so
So cold (x3)


Wrong Bus Blues

6am
violently pulled from my dreams again
Sleepy legs
No excuse to not get out of bed

Outside the world is waking from its sleep
To the symphony of coffee machines

In sync we brush our teeth
How does my arse look in these jeans?
Extra sugar in my tea
Mechanical part of a monotone choreography

But for a moment every morning
The clouds turn slightly red
And I taste the essence of freedom
Only for a sec

Hopping on the wrong bus
Until the world outside looks strange

Good Morning, Sir
I had a new idea for the campaign
No problem, I promise I won't bother you again
Three hours, 18 minutes left until our break
Actually let's make it 30 for the company's sake

One calming cigarette on the office balcony
Close your eyes, inhale and count to three
Poison releases phantasies
But it's all been written down before for your choreography

But the smoke tastes like adventure
And ripe fruits from overseas
Like desire and euphoria
Like forgotten mysteries

Like hopping on the wrong bus
Until the world outside looks strange

Raging River (Walk)

A river's raging underneath my feet
The ancient bridge is dying
Letting out a deafening creak

So I can't hear
I have to guess the rhythm of my heart
So I can't see
It's frightening, cold and dark

So I raise my head
And I smile at the nothingness
And I walk, And I walk
Cause I know no matter how many times I fall
I'll get back on the right track
As long as I keep on moving

And we walk …


Blackout

We met up for food and a Game of Thrones marathon
Took a lot of selfless
Posted pics of the pizza
As long as it was still warm

One thing led to another
I just couldn't stop to hover
Over your profile picture

Hashtag nothing will separate us
Please change your relationship status

But when the power goes out
And the systems shut down
Panic will arise
While candlelight's projecting movies on the walls
I almost forgot the colour of your eyes
My favourite novel's drowned in dust
Disturbing silence is rushing to my bones
Washing away cognitive rust

Have you watched the latest vine
I tweeted it and FYI
Our friendship means so much to me
I tagged you in my timeline

I whatsapped you at 3:05
At seven minutes later there's still no reply

(That's just asking for angry emoticons)

But when the power goes out
And the systems shut down
Panic will arise
While candlelight's projecting movies on the walls
I almost forgot the colour of your eyes
My favourite novel's drowned in dust
Disturbing silence is rushing to my bones
Washing away cognitive rust

Song to Bobby

Last night I had a dream
I woke up in the middle of the road
The sun was glowing high in the desert sky
It was all just a dream

 

I slowly turned around
Just to stumble up and down that road
I had lost my suitcase I'd lost my coat

In the corner of my eye
A strange young man was walking up to me
I said : "Who are you?"
He said: "Two miles down and a-half past three!"
It was all just a dream

I followed him down to the tracks
Of the old industrial line
He said: "Take my hand and jump
When I give you the sign"

We got off by the old steel mill
And he said: "We'll be there soon!
There's a path down to the valley
And the old saloon"
It was all just a dream

I was sipping on my whiskey
When I heard between the noise
That Bobby was playing guitar
And had raised his voice

In the corner of the room
He was singing all the things
That I swear in my sweet whole life
I'd been trying to think
Was it all just a dream?

As the song came to an end
I said: "Do you really gotta go?"
He said: "I got a friend in the hospital, you know"

dotwav

She's a mighty, moody queen
It only takes her seconds
To move from
Black to blue to green
But it doesn't really matter

She could be in any state
She would always be breathtaking
And you could
Be in any state

She could never fail
To lift you up

And in the back of my head
I know that she's still there
Right in the same spot where I left her

Her unquestionable beauty
Will persist a million years


I'll live on in her

And when I dieTears

Smell Of Summer

Wake Up early in the morning
I hear the birds
Singing in the green, green trees
Open my window
And the wind
Starts blowing softly through my hair

And the smell of summer
Makes my heart beat faster

Jump out the door
Got my favourite dress on
Make my way
Through the sweaty crowd
Right to the beach
Endless bright but this emptiness inside
And it makes me want to sing
But I don't feel like I am part of this
Because of you
I don't feel like I am part of that world
Because of you

Because I know
The sun will sink again

Ratzfutz

I thought I saw you in town yesterday
My heart missed a beat and I called out your name
When my eyes met the judging look of a stranger
I realised it could't have been you

Cause I live in a country now that's so far away
All your love all you gave me just couldn't make me stay
And I'm sorry and I want to come back so you can hold me again
But I don't I guess that's just the way it goes

And sometimes all of a sudden I smile
Cause I remember homework and talking bout teachers at lunchtime
I remember long walks in the park
And climbing into your bed when it's too dark to sleep

And I remember not being scared to fall
Cause you'd pick me up and kiss my tears away
And now when it hurts I can't even call
Cause it just shows me how far away you are

And sometimes all of a sudden I frown
Cause I remember secret cigarettes and being lovesick and down
When you'd tell me you love me and asked what is wrong
I'd just hurt and reject you and shout

Cause you were unconditionally on my side
And I was unconditionally on the other
And you still carried the weight from my shoulders
And sometimes you still do although I'm much older
And I want to be little and lie in your bed
And I want to cuddle and hold your hand

While I'm crossing the street
And I'm taller than you
But everytime I look up to you I feel small

And sometimes all of a sudden I smile
Cause I remember concers and building snowmen while I dial
Your voice on the other end of the line
We're two women now

But can you please sing me this lullaby

One more time
Just one more time


That Creature

See his eyes
In the shining light
Of this night

And the moon starts to cry
While I
Stop to fight

To be your bride
Only for tonight

And when my lips feel your lips
And you're holding my hips
So you don't fall you don't trip
And the world starts to howl and I

Feel our love
Although I know
That it grows to crash
And my heart will be smashed
On the ground again

And when your eyes show your needs
My last energy feeds you
With blood in your mouth
You leave me thousands of miles from
Home

Finally able to smile again
The creature leaves
Just to return
To empty its broken can

Knowing I'll wait
Until the end

And I hate how you walk
And I hate how you talk
And I hate how you kiss me
And show me you missed me
And my heartbeat increases
Blood in veins freezes

Laying on the ground
Too weak to turn around
So desperate I only feel the hope
That your thorn
Has left inside my head
Carry myself to bed
Where I'll wait until you
Come back


Staring At the Horizon

You and the moonlight
Floating through your curls to the beat
You and the roaring sea that's
passionately kissing your bare feet

You and your lips
That sing this neverending song
And everyone you meet can't
Help but sing along

And you're just staring at the horizon
Wishing you could leave and leave this place behind
Fighting to be a better person
With another face
But the more you try
The more your die inside

And you don't judge you talk to everyone
And everyone seems so surprised
Their numb and working bodies
Take a break
And their eyes wake up to life

And you're just staring at the horizon
Wishing you could leave and leave this place behind
Fighting to be a better person
With another face
But the more you try
The more your die inside

And you're just staring at the horizon
Wishing you could leave and leave yourself behind
Fighting to be a better person
Because you don't realise
That you just take a little pain of everyone
And you're wishing you could leave and leave this pain behind
Fighting to be a better person

Because you're blinded by your own light


Face Cramps

I was swimming through the endless empty chaos of the streets
And the moonlight shone so bright it was almost blinding me
A million shadows passed me in the grey and milky light
Until your face appeared in front of my eyes

And then you smiled at me
And you're eyes shine brighter than the colours exploding around us
And we're floating in fireflies
I see them in your eyes

You and I staring into another sunrise
Our hurting eyes glowing like the sun
Cause as much as I love to wake up next to you
Sleeping seems so useless when all your dreams have come true

And then you take my hand
And you're eyes shine brighter than the colours exploding around us
And we're floating in fireflies
I see them in your eyes


Stray Cat

I'm just a little house cat
Born in a small town flat
I see the people passing by
And wonder where they sleep at night

And behind the skyline
I imagine a forest so wide
A concreteless jungle
A place where I can stumble

And I want to be free
Be free
I want to scratch my face in the thorny trees
Be free, be free
I want to sleep in the dirt
And make the Kitties scream

They left the door open wide
And in shines the sun so bride
My shaky legs they take a step
And my soul's numbness starts to pass

And behind the skyline
I can suddenly see the sky
A concreteless jungle
Just a place to stumble

And I feel so free
So free
SCratching my face in the thorny trees
So free, so free
I want to be free, be free
I want to scratch my face in the thorny trees
Free, so free
I want to sleep in the dirt and make the Kitties scream

I'm just a little stray cat
Just a little stray cat
I'm just a little stray cat
I'm just I'm just a little stray cat

I want to be free, be free
I want to scratch my face in the thorny trees
Free, so free
I want to be free, be free
I want to scratch my face in the thorny trees
Free, so free
I want to sleep in the dirt and make the Kitties scream


Wake Up

Waking up see you lying there next to me
Your skin so beautiful and soft
And I'm wondering if the memory is all that we can save
From last night

Because I really don't want that
I really don't want that
Please just wake up and tell me that you love me
But you don't

You're just lying there, eyes closed
Your blue blue eyes
That look just like the summer skies
When I'm looking for your picture in the clouds
And I just want them to open up and tell me more
Than you could ever say

Because I really don't want that
I really don't want that
Please just wake up and tell me that you love me
But you don't

And this feeling is taking me
Losing control
Is not as easy as you'd expect it to be
It's eating me up
And makes me want to give you
All I've got
And makes me want you to wake up
And tell me that you feel the same

Please just wake up and tell me that you love me
Please just wake up and tell me that you love me
But you don't

You're just lying there
And the feeling I've got
Is getting worse and worse
The worst I've ever felt
Please just don't make it stop


Homesick

So I'm sitting on this beach
Drinking Cider, eating crisps
So I'm talking to those people
Those I never knew but always missed
So the sun is burning my skin
And my mouth looks like it smiles
So I'm getting used to walking down this street
And I stop to cry

But my face looks sort of dirty
And my hair looks sort of wild
My attitude got a bit flirty
And I hear myself talking in this language I don't know

And I forget to eat
But I drink to much

And I only feel good
With smoke in my lungs
And I try to feel
What's left but coolness in my heart
I used to know myself too well
To be fooled

But my face looks sort of dirty
And my hair looks sort of wild
My attitude got a bit flirty
And I hear myself talking in this language I don't know

Who's that girl in the mirror
And what does she think about me
Can I let go
Can I trust her
Will I ever love again
Love anything


Kimberley

When we were Babies
When we were young and sweet
There was nothing more beautiful
Than falling asleep
Next to you

When we grew older
We would share
Don't know if on purpose
But you even gave me half your hair
And even when we were fighting
We would always care

So if you have a best friend
Like I do then
Open your hearts and your windows
And shout out how much you love them

Now we are young and free
But I know it'll always be you and me
Whatever might come
You know me better than I do
And there's nothing better
Than spending time with you

So if you have a best friend
Like I do then
Open your hearts and your windows
And shout out how much you love them

Cause you're the only person that I know
That when we're grey and old
When we're walking slow
I can still hold hands with
While we're dancing in the snow

Two souls holding hands in the storm
But when I'm with you
I always feel warm
So if you have a best friend
Like I do then
Open your hearts and your windows
And shout out how much you love them

Learn To Fly

No place I feel save
No place that I feel home
I'll never arrive
No shelter from the storm

But I keep on searching
And I don't know what for
I keep on wishing
For something more

Maybe one day I will close my eyes

I've slept in the desert
I've swum in all the seas
My skin feels like leather
No dart can make me feel

But I keep on walking
To find the place where I belong
I keep on running
But I don't know what from

Maybe one day I will close my eyes
And let myself fall and learn to fly

Cause though my heart it longs for loving
it cannot bear to stay
Because my feet are made for walking
And my eyes are made to see

And so I'm smiling with my dusty teeth
Up to the glowing sun
The horizon doesn't seem that far away
And I know that I will reach it one day

Maybe one day I will close my eyes
Let myself fall and learn to fly
