BEFORE YOU GO



before you go

you are standing on a line
frozen to the ground
your eyes in tears observing mine
our hearts, forever bound
but i keep running like the child,
destined for the wind borne change
and you keep looking from outside
feeling pain, become estrange

but before you go
i have to say
i love you till the end of our days
and i'll catch you in a vestibule
before our bitter sweet goodbye 

but you cannot stand on solid ground
while being carried by the sea
as you cannot touch the love you've found
or the whisper from a tree
and i feel your longing gaze beneath my shoulder blades
and its ripping me apart
and i know that your silhouette will fade
its an end
and its a start

but before you go
i have to say
i love you till the end of our days
and i'll catch you in a vestibule
before our bitter sweet goodbye

WOLF

wolf is a song that tells a story about a place, that we call the middle ground. a place, that is very difficult to stick close to, especially in times of extremes, though all the more important to hold on to. that song came into being about a year ago. back then it carried mostly personal value. when i sing it today it's more like a reminder of that place, that is worth traveling to, in case we forget. the recording isn't the best, but the only one we have :) the lyrics you find below.

 

i look at the moon and its glow 
and i wonder, how long does your river flow
i see your breath stroking fallen snow 
and i wonder, where do all your currents go

and i walk between fire and ice
and i ask you will you make your same mistakes twice?

i look up at the night sky's surrender 
and i wonder, why can't i remember
you smile and you say it's a game of pitch and toss 
mind your step while you walk
you look back and it's your loss

and i walk between fire and ice 
and i ask you will you make your same mistakes twice?

i tiptoe and i freeze 
what is it that you seek?
your sharp eyes cut through the ice
but your tenderness shines bright
you ask me if i'm free 
and i say, you are the wolf that i long to be

and we walk between fire and ice
and i ask you, will you make your same mistakes twice?
