ENGLISH TEXTS (SOME WITH MUSIC)

All songs by Dagfinn Koch if not otherwise stated. All lyrics by Malin Kjelsrud.

ALL THE THINGS
We greet each other with empty eyes
Hardly observing the frozen smiles
Staggering on as blind
Forgot how to unwind

We lost power, there’s only words
Though we practice them as sharpened swords
Thinking someone must pay
Forgot how to play

Bridge:
Maybe this doesn’t make any sense
But I can’t help but wonder

Ref:
All the things that we seem to do
Just to keep our minds busy
All the lies we believe are true
The thought of it’s making me dizzy

The beast among us has grown bold
Or at least that’s how the story is told
Have we all lost our toys?
Forgot how to make noise


AND THEN CAME SILENCE
(music: myself)
Life opens doors
And leaves us torn and washed up on different shores
I heard your whisper through the dark
it left a broken spark

REF:
I went to bury my feet in the sand
It felt as melancholy as I planned
I kept my deal as neat as I could
And then came silence

Temptation’s gone
I’ll have to learn to make up the rest of my mind
And carve the shape of things to come
Decide who to become

Bridge:
There’s something odd about the space in between
If telepathy works you’ll know what I mean


BREAKING FREE
I crashed into a scary downside
Too tired and weak to even hide
I was stuck inside a tiny frame
As a part of his skillful game

He broke into my weary mind
Deciding I was a sweet divine
Pretending to be nice and kind
I missed the yelling warning sign

ref:
He prey on empathy
But I’m all out of sympathy
I’m breaking free
Saving what’s left of me
I’m breaking free

I’m standing still but try to move
Clearly now he won’t approve
I’m failing to comfort and reconcile
Facing his tears and the dying smile


DEEPLY SHALLOW
Oh, please don’t share what’s on your mind
I really do not want to know
Sometimes I wish that I was blind

Oh, please don’t ask what’s on my mind
I will tell you something else
Either way you’ll never find

REF:
Let’s not
state the obvious
Let’s be
Deeply shallow
Let’s not
share the sorrow
Let’s not
– talk

Let’s believe our laughter’s real
Though we choke and look away
Let’s not share how we feel

Oh, let’s just speak about TV
We will argue about her hair
Like always ending up agreed


DIFFERENT DRUM
Maybe you have felt it too
Something has changed
Deep inside you’ll know it’s true
Though it may feel strange
How long are you gonna wait?

REF:
Don’t let that inner voice stay as a muffled hum
Have you ever tried to follow a different drum?

Trust yourself, fly away
Dare to feel alive
Don’t be scared, come and play
We will be okay
How far do you dare to go?


DRAWN BACK IN JOY
He’ll witness life through glued-on pearls
patiently awaiting the shift
While wearing the names of boys and girls
He carefully employs his gift

She tries to float above the birds
listening out for songs and signs
Unsure if to lift the curse
Knowing the price is seven lives.

Regret –
She hesitates to introduce the damned
to drink the blood of ghosts to understand
Pain of wisdom no one wants to find:
advice not followed, she’s choosing to stay blind

Forget –
Refuse the future memories revealed by fire
The boy will be just fine, he’ll stay alive
as long as he won’t try to know himself
Call him by her name and nothing else

Their eyes are looking more than human
voices sounding larger than themselves
Gather wiser men and women
together they may break the spells

As the dark of night fades into clear day
we’re moving on with wings drawn back in joy


HAND HELD HARD
We lie awake hearing rain slowly falling
Trying not to take the silence as proof
That something’s wrong
But that we still belong
Together

Long and quiet days passes by
A silence we are eager to deny
We try so hard to stay strong
And feel that we still belong
Together

REF:
Some things are better off unsaid
But I am pleased to feel my
Hand held hard

My best guess is that you feel the same
Hoping desperately to rescue the flame
We have wanted this for so long
We really want to belong
Together


LIFE’S DELICATE PRESENCE
I gaze beyond your frozen smile
to find the reason of your ruptured soul.
You wear your hidden tears well
true to the blackness of the hole

The herd of giants before you
Their teeth loaded and aimed
Now constructing a new truth
You’re graciously locked and framed

BRIDGE:
What do you want
Where do you wanna go?

REF:
It’s hard to see you so dazed
I would love to see your head raised
Smiling in a dreamy gaze
All the grey entirely erased

I wish you could
Enjoy the essence
I wish you’d see
Life’s delicate precence

You’re just pretending to be alive
waiting for the end to arrive
Entranced by the bitter harmony
Craving for the ceremony


LITTLE PAPER PEOPLE
Little paper people
Have paper bullets in their guns
And will defeat you with their nouns
Little paper people
See themselves as small
They do what they are told

Little paper people
Can’t reveal who is the source
They’re sticking to the course
Little paper people
Are deaf to pleads and screams
Getting high on bigger dreams

Little paper people
Won’t see their actions as insults
Or understand the results
Little paper people
Are only scared to make mistakes
Busy playing ducks and drakes


PERFECT CIRCLE
Wonders start as a twisted sea
Shivers warn of a dreamt of plea
Rumour’s catching the falling fool
fading to grey out of view
Shallow breathing and mellow mind
Bend it down and keep it blind

REF:
Without a guide
I’m scared I’ll cut the journey too short
crossing the brigde to your promised heart
‘cos when you come
the perfect circle’s gone

Echoes rise from a lost embrace
Shadows worn on a sober face
Anguish dulling the needed light
Yearning’s left out all the white
Shallow ending and mellow lie
Tear it down and let it fly


SARAH
Sarah was lying
In the autumn meadow
Peacefully smoking
Her last cigarette
The scars through her soul had paled away
But the skies had never ever been so grey

She closed her eyes
And smiled a tired smile
Dreaming of Paris
In the early spring
Sarah killed the urge to run and hide
It was like something beautiful had died

Ref:
No need to be sad
Forget what you had
I have burnt my hopes and buried all my dreams
It’s not that hard, it seems
She said

Sarah was rising
Her face appeared like stone
There was a silence
I found myself alone
No matter what she does it will be wrong
To let down someone you really must be strong


THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE AREN’T THINGS
Friends and strangers: love escapes!
This frenzied world remains
Hear the song that Chronos sing
The best things in life aren’t things

REF:
We are all the guards of tomorrow
(the) owners of this newborn millennium
Let’s make sure they won’t forget us
The owners of a noble rage

Not pleased with what you’ve got?
When would you be pleased enough?
Listen when the brave ones sing
The best things in life aren’t things

 

SPELL FOR BETRAYED WOMEN
(Springar from Kristiansund, music: Dagfinn Koch)

I shout to the mountains,
sea ​​and air:
for your betrayal you will bleed
It comes with the wind,
a knowledge in mind:
Time and place when you shall die

Dark glances from those who love you
they will forget about who you are
You are obsolete, vile and speechless:
Tremble!
’cause you shall see yourself!

I give it to the storm
my wreath and anger
You’re gonna gnaw on my sorrow
Forever wait
and go around yearning
love will never be yours

Your bones shall tie a witches’ knot
which gets stronger the more you fight
And your flesh shall
grow wild and hard
Hollow hunger will not be relieved by food

BRIDGE:
We loved each other. I gave you everything.
Our love was high as the ceiling of the world.
Life was gracious, fun and good
until you took the hungier road.
Melancholic blood ran down my soul.
All the beautiful days will become ugly.With fire in hand
and time in voice
I urge sleep to become penance
Memories disappear
pain arises
Wine becomes water, but tastes like blood

Peace and prosperity will take another way
If yes is wanted, then the answer will be no
At dawn
the witches fire will scorch
Happiness leaves and sorrow stays


THE DAY THAT SUMMER DIED
Counting clouds is easy, there’s not a single one
Morally obliged to enjoy the sun
Clouds of dust is hurled by passing feet
Tanned children doesn’t seem to mind the heat

Panting dogs refuse to play
Sweating tourists walking by and say
«This doesn’t look anything like the ad»
The air feels electric and weird

REF:
Bells nearby chiming
Seems somehow proper for this day
Inner peace is stolen by the wind and tide
On the day that summer died

At last I’m warm all through
I give up not thinking of you
A distant smell of hotdogs and grass
And all these moments pass


THE FRIENDLY GHOST
This is the winter
that will never end
this is the strength
that will break or bend

This is the truth
we can’t comprehend
This is the magic
upon which we depend

Ref:
I guess your face will always haunt me
Like a friendly ghost
But a friend foremost

These are the hurts
that we wish to mend
This is the darkness
which we represent

This is the time
that has no end
This is the letter
I will never send


THE SOURCE OF TIME
Call upon
Memories long gone
of lessons given and learned

Underneath
our weary feet
the earth continues to spin
Stars are pulling our skin

REF:
Gaze into the source of time
We drift against the tide
and holding hands we keep
the loneliness at ease (dizziness/emptiness)

Brace our souls
for daunting new roles
Greeting the wind that blows minds

Change the dream
The end is over
Distant hearts will find
Morning belongs to the kind


WHAT IF
If I was lying under water
waiting for the air to expire
Would you dive down into the blue
And come and get me?

If I was lying on the floor
weeping all the uncried tears
Would you lie down beside me
And hold me tight?

REF:
What if you suddenly became aware
That I couldn’t stay the one I tried to be
wanted to be
longed to be
Would you love me anyway?

If I was hurt by the failing years
Overtaken by unknown fears
Would you own the magic words
And put everything right?

If I told you about things I admire
And changed your image of me
Things you thought you knew
Would you still dare to see?


INSIDE LOOKING OUT
Crowded spaces feeling un-mine
Newer strangers, foreign smiles
Sought and found the right lie
Between the kisses and the wine

REF:
Will you dare to try again, brother?
I’m in here, inside the clown
A worn out hero turned coward
I am inside looking out
Please try to reach me again, sister!
You can’t hear it but I shout
stuck within my own winter
(Forever) inside looking out

BRIDGE:
In the sunlit rain
singing ghosts bleed a river of sadness
Bring the fire that burns Mino’s bed

Memories stretched and bent
Recall all the joys never spent
Cut ties between heart and the moon
It’s time now to see it through

Blow dust off of rusty dreams
Try building up courage to sleep
Forget every person I’ve been
Go with the flow where ever it leads


LET’S GET OUR WIGGLE ON
Bump off that all wet Lollygagger
He’s a two faced kiss and tell pill-bragger,
Just a little cheese, ossified four-flusher
He’s a gumbeating Ritzy sap
Ankle that swanky face my way
You’re a water-proof, darb and smooth oyster heart
Such a valid stamp, baby vamp, berry part
I’m full on stuck on you

REF:
You and me, together we’re bee’s knees
Swell and flapper,
Darb and dapper
We’re on the trolley
and everything’s Jake 

Get a move on those getaway stilts
Even though we’re low on dough
Put on some glad rags,
unfurl the flags,
forget tomorrow
Let’s find some giggle water
Let’s get our wiggle on!


THE LAST TIME
Your lips form the word «We»
but it no longer means you and me
I draw myself a pair of eyes
hoping I’ll look alive

Hope’s a prophet spreading doubt
defiling our love and home
I turn away from tomorrows view:
A pile of broken promises and no you

REF:
Unwished-for truths appear to rise
I cling to lies with open eyes
‘cause when I’m lining up the coming days
I’ve basked in joy for the last time

BRIDGE:
Oh, I stayed
I outstayed my welcome
I didn’t leave until I had nothing left

I try to become invisible
but end up just turned away
This love was always mythical
Reality dares me awake

I breathe your name upon the wind
carve my pain into the air
I wrap a wish and give it wings
chase it away to erase this year


ONLY WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE OUT YOU’RE IN
Oh, I can feel your intentions
But I aim to slide away
Bring me an audience
I’ll grant you an afternoon
I’ll see you someday
see you soon

I dodge your puppy eyes
shrug away the guilty mind
Perhaps I’ll join you later
For now we’re not in tune
I’ll see you another day
see you soon

REF:
I ask of you
Don’t let the thoughts in your head get out
I know what you want to say
We both know
that only when the lights are out you’re in
So you just stay low

We have an understanding
You rent the space by my side
Don’t back me into a corner
‘Cos I aim to slide away
I’ll see you some other day maybe
see you soon

CLAIMING THEM BACK
I’m claiming the city back
Changing mood to pink from black
I’m taking the parks and streets
They’re once again my secret treats
I’m claiming them back

REF:
Now it’s all mine again
I’m claiming them back for good
I’m free and alive and
They’re all mine again

I’m claiming the music back
Give myself some needed slack
I’m taking the chords and beats
They’re making my life complete
I’m claiming them back

I’m claiming the pleasure back
Killing the panic attacks
I’m taking the thrills and joys
And play with my refound toys
I’m claiming them back


COME WITH ME
(Music: Dagfinn Koch & Tirill Mohn)
When the sun sets in the golden night
I’ll open the door to the mystery
Listen to the sound of quiet
I’ll show you the peaceful sanctuary

Ref:
Come with me
Your eyes will see
The blue and green
from a world unseen
The hurts will heal
Let’s seal the deal
Come with me
Come with me

A cup of wine to sooth your thirst
The entrancing story has begun
Make a brave choice first
Your golden thread of life is spun

From here on sensually present
Don’t consider what you leave behind
The whole eternity so pleasant
I promise that you’ll never mind


CONFUSION
Wait a minute, something is wrong
this hasn’t happened for long
you say it’s blue, but I see red
Is it you or is it me that’s
messing with my head?

I enter the room, but the room is gone
how do I know that it’s not just a con?
I remember the face, but the name is lost
something keeps telling me
that I’m being crossed

Bridge:
Maybe I’m just blind or dead
confusion is drilling a hole in my head

Ref:
I don’t want to be here
I want to get out
a solution seemed so near
now I’m full of doubt
I don’t want to be here
I want to escape
sweetness seemed so near
Should’ve had it on tape

Wait a minute, something is wrong
this hasn’t happened for long
I don’t remember being there
I’m no longer sure that
I can be repaired


DEEP INTO YOUR DREAM
The distant atmosphere of another age
Reminds me that we can’t unchange
With a stone fallen from my heart
I discovered that my world doesn’t fall apart

A part of me was craving more and more
Insecurity grew faster than before
At last I was obliged to obey
I discovered that I can’t chase the shades away

REF:
There’s so much I
Wish I could say
You’re so far away
Sleeping by my side
I think as
loudly as I can
Maybe you can hear
Deep into your dream

I was startled by the sudden thought
Of all the circles that I should have fought
Perhaps I should have let you know
I discovered that it might’ve made the circles grow


FALLEN
Someday,
when the streets have gone quiet
I’ll remember without the pain
Harmony will live beside it
I’ll be coming back to life again

Someday,
when the highs finally have set
I’ll settle somewhere silent
Start paying off my debt
I’ll hear your whisper like a siren

REF:
We have fallen
Fallen high from our dreamt up sky
We have fallen
Now, say goodbye to a joyful time

Someday,
I pray there’ll be a someday
When the pain has died away
I’ll become able to close the door
This love has changed my core


GOODBYE
I never ever cease to be amazed
How you are always rescued by a phrase
The meaning of your words I will erase
I will

I thought that you would always be my friend
On your trust I sadly did depend
The damage I will find a way to mend
I know

Ref:
Memories will surely fade
I will not be afraid
It’s gonna be my trade
Goodbye
I will retrieve what´s mine
Turn waves into straightened lines
It’s gonna be just fine
Goodbye

I think that you don´t have a real idea
Of what it takes to overcome a fear
And searching for a suiting smile to wear
I do


ILLOGICAL
Sometimes I gotta climb to get down
Take a breath of water or drown
Search for someone that’s already there
Close my eyes in order to stare

Sometimes I hit ”Start” to shut down
Take the straight path to get around
Turn the sound off to hear the tune
Look for the sun to find the moon

Ref:
Sadly I’ve been right before
Most likely I’ll be right once more
Everything might seem okay
But believe me when I say
The world is plain illogical

Sometimes I must whisper to be heard
Use a different, maybe foreign word
Sometimes I must dive to get up
Drink expensive wine from a cheap cup


LABPARTNERS IN LALA-LAND
I asked for space but all I got was air
Wish I knew how to go form here
My mind is bent outta shape
But it simply won’t bend that far

Tongue twisted past tense thoughts
Testing the power of connecting dots
I drew for you a shiny blank page
Gave you the key to your vacant cage

REF:
We’re lab partners in lala-land
Don’t bring your bad habits here
We can’t be anything but grand
Some other day is gonna be the right day to
disappear

Sitting in revolving sixty minute chairs
Drinking tea with a practiced face
The best week ever to be beautiful and bored
Lets build our -ism together totally off guard


LOVE IS THE LAW
Every man and every woman is a star
Your own true orbit will bring you far
Come forth o children of the starry blue
Let my light shed over you

Do what you will, do no wrong
Let the good ones grow and be strong
They are many, they are one
She is a moon, he is a sun

REF:
Above all, love is the law
What you’ll see won’t be what I saw
Love each other with burning hearts
Love is the bond uniting the parts

Do not believe the evil lie
That it’s certain that you must die
The blind are slaves of because
Do what you will is the master of laws.


LOST FRIENDS AND BROKEN LIGHTS
There’s shade in the eyes of my neighbours
Dreams frozen for later
We’re all building forts

When leaders betray, who’ll be our saviours?
Friends become haters
Bad turn to worse

BRIDGE:
We’ll make it if we run (it could be so beautiful)
we’ll make it somewhere somehow (I long for silence)

REF:
Mad minds ruins our fantasy
Of peaceful days and starry nights
Dragged back to the haze of reality
Lost friends and broken lights

When we defy war, they call us traitors
It’s human nature
We can’t lift the curse


MUZZLED
(Music: Dagfinn Koch & Tirill Mohn)
And now that you no longer
Can see me any other way
The awry image grows stronger
You turn your blind eye away
I’m still here

And now that words gets useless
Like otiose lines in a play
Only deaf ears hears the protest
There is nothing left to say
I’m still here

BR:
Do you hear me?
Do you know my name?

REF:
I’m just a numbered piece
In your annoying puzzle
Nobody cares to hear
I have been muzzled
I cannot speak

And I am getting lost there
In secret puzzling rules
This battle isn’t played fair
I’m standing in a row of fools
I’m forever there


RECURRING DREAM
(Music: Dagfinn Koch & Tirill Mohn)
I have a recurring dream
walking barefoot in the grass
and the need to scream
seem to have passed

I dance real slow
warm wind in my face
an euphoric flow
without a trace

Ref:
who wrote those enchanting words
that I no longer can remember?
Who played those amazing chords
glowing like dying embers?

I have a recurring dream
I guess it is one of those
you fear it’s a sceme
then uncertainty grows

I dance real slow
round and round once more
the magic light glows
much brighter than before


REQUIEM FOR A BROKEN NAIL
INTRO
It’s great to have friends that are jewish or gay
They’ll teach you how to dress and to play
Forget romance, but by all means pretend
An Audi TT will make you transcend

Vers 1:
Oscar Wilde was wrong about crying,
a well-timed tear can help you start flying
Don’t be distracted by the global news
Or the sadness in the mourners blues
Once you receive the right affections
You will build the right connections

Vers 2:
Cosmopolitan, the bible, always teach
What to wear at the office or the beach
Your shoes must be worth dying for
And your Gucci-handbag even more
Make sure your colors are in fashion
Display the right amount of passion

REF:
Screw the right men at the right time
Keep the right friends when you climb
or else you will know how it feels to fail
and you will sing a requiem for a broken nail

REF2:
Design emotions and sell your soul
With grace, step into the perfect role
or else you will know how it feels to fail
and you will sing a requiem for a broken nail

Vers 3:
I realized that the meaning of life
Is to become a rich mans wife
Keep your confidence on top
Put your boobs ahead and up
And pretty soon you’ll wear a bridal gown
and get that cool flat in Barbietown (west end girls)

BRIDGE:
My advice is to follow the guide to success
And learn the secrets of how to impress
Keep your hair long and shiny (daddys creditcard)
And your ass tight and tiny (mummys surgeon)


RE: HAPPINESS
You asked me about happiness
I paused, revealing how unsure I was
couldn’t shake off that grey mood
you just smiled and drove away

I’m not sure what scares me most
Distress or the ability to endure
The thought have an uneasy familiarity
I’m not that optimistic anymore

Bridge:
I fear we are failing
Being busy doing nothing

Ref:
The search for meaning makes us human, you said
Are you sure we can look that far ahead?
The idea of bliss was invented to force us to consume
Greed comes in any colour, I presume

When you ask me about happiness
Or my favorite place to be alone
I’ll say I’m euforic
When I know that no harm is done


SICK, SOBER AND SORRY
I am having a hard time getting out of bed,
its all due to an aching head.
I can’t recall all that happened last night
And now I am sick, sober and sorry.

Today I woke up with a sigh of relief
In my own bed not seeing a strangers face
It could have gone oh so bad
But I’m sick, sober and sorry

REF:
I promise myself: never drink again
But I know that’s just self-deception
I know who I am. I feel pretty mellow
I always regret, but I’m alive

Maybe next time I’ll meet someone special
And a velvet wine’ll help me smile
But right now I’ll drink a beer to repair
‘cause I’m sick, sober and sorry

Bridge:
I need a shower
I’d kill for a burger
The fridge is empty
The light’s too bright
My cellphone is gone
The money is spent
I don’t remember
How I got home

Vocals: Nora Dahlberg live at «Bakgårdsfesten» in 2017:

 

Vocals: Malin Kjelsrud & Dagfinn Koch


SILENT SIGH
(Music: Dagfinn Koch & Tirill Mohn)
Once upon a rainy Tuesday
What shouldn’t happen yet occured
A cup of coffee in my hand
As I read the news referred

Once upon a rainy Tuesday
Hours went by all blurred
I wore your soft blue knitted sweather
Your absence just absurd

ref:
No sense in wondering why
I cannot even cry
I just silently sigh
Just a silent sigh

Once upon a rainy Tuesday
months went by all blurred
I had your laughter in my head
your absence still absurd

Once upon a rainy Tuesday
Think it was October third
Your image often pass my mind
But I never say a word


SWISS ARMY GOD
Whenever you feel lost and hurt
And all alone in the world
Questioning whatever is the point
To all this nonsense

Whenever you feel happy and warm
And want to share it with the world
So much blissful joy
And everything makes sense

Ref:
If you need something to believe in
heal your wounds
comfort your soul
remove your doubts
and make your aura shine
You need the Swiss Army God!

Whenever you feel high or low
And need something but don’t know what
It comes in different colors
And can be called whatever you want

O Lord you make everything make sense


THE DARKEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR
(Music: Dagfinn Koch & Tirill Mohn)
It could have been so bad
chances were I’d be sad
I could have been on my own
totally alone

I might have closed the door
or stared down at the floor
wondered where you were
and what you’d prefer

Ref:
But you weren’t missed
my dear, you were right there
made sure I was properly kissed
on the darkest night of the year

I could have gone alone to bed
with confusing words in my head
wonder what’d happen next
sleeping unrelaxed


VOID
Your love’s an empty hard shell suitcase
Ready to depart
This grimy city screams in my face
You melt into the dark

BRIDGE:
I’m bending spoons and traffic rules for you

REF:
And there you go
Leaving me lonely
I’d live it all again
No matter how
Forever know
There’ll be a you-shaped void in my heart

I wait and ache, submerge my sadness in
wine and strangers’ love
Lately I’ve indulged in madness
Days go by somehow

BRIDGE:
I’m turning tides and killing pride for you


WINE THERAPY
At half past thirtyfour
I think my best is behind me
Let’s find some beautiful place to get lost
Yet another border to be crossed

REF:
Let’s have some wine therapy
A fresh beginning again
Discover new aspects of beauty
Wine therapy
Everything’s explained
Share some cubic bubbles with me

The misty late confessions
Are always sung in C-minor
Answering the questions
Unlearned in the morning hours

Let it sink in slowly
You’re all alone on the merry-go-round
Let’s try to keep it nobly
This felicital burial ground


WHAT DO YOU DO?
Hard won inner peace refuse to stay
inspiration shrivel and run away
Beauty climaxed a thousand Saturdays ago
Days and years roll by like falling snow

Who you were supposed to be
are far from who you actually’ve become
Everybody morphed into clones of cranky dorks
and exchanged their hearts for heavy stones

REF:
What do you do?
with the bits and pieces of you
That you left behind
How do you deal
with the bits that you
that you never even found?

BRIDGE:
If you dare:
Stay there in the moment
between anxiety and submission
Stay there for a while and listen
to the sound of Everything

Can you forgive your inner lofty child
Summon tears of self sympathy and soothing rain
Throw away that goodbye, it’s only a possible end
Go out one more time to seek a joyful friend


YOUR SIDE OF THE BED
While you’re away
I go around thoughtful about my day
savouring my longing after you
Death does not scare me
A life without you does.
These are things I think about
While you’re away

REF:
Will other dreams appear inside my head
sleeping on your side of the bed?
Will lying on the spot that smells of you
better help me understand your point of view?
Or will the tiny change of scene,
only make it all too clear
how much I’m really missing you?
Sleeping on your side of the bed

While you’re away
I go around thoughtful about my day
We project a different world onto life
A story played off grid
Through you I love it all
These are things I think about
While you’re away


I HEAR YOU
Were you at all prepared
for the effects of your truth?
all the joy once shared
now gone like faded youth

I guess you had your reasons
though madness looks the same
as when driven by illusions
and never ever to be blamed

Bridge:
blessed be the insightless
for they shall sleep well at night

Ref:
If you all could please stay sane
take charge yourself of all your pain
grow up and get a life,
a stupid wife or a very sharp knife
I hear you
But I do not care

I take your unease as a sign
Of who is wrong and who is right
I decide which path is mine
and move quietly into the night
