Go away closer

And we continue with this morning’s theme, with a confusing answer to my question “Should I stay or should I go?”



Yesterday I got so old
I felt like I could die
Yesterday I got so old
It made me want to cry

Go on go on
Just walk away

Go on go on
Your choice is made
Go on go on
And disappear
Go on go on
Away from here

And know I was wrong
When I said it was true
That couldn’t be me
and be her in between

without you
Without you

Yesterday I got so scared
I shivered like a child
Yesterday away from you
It froze me deep inside

Come back come back
Don’t walk away

Come back come back
Come back today
Come back come back
Why can’t you see?
Come back come back
Come back to me

And I know I was wrong
When i said it was true
That it couldn’t be me
and be her in between

without you
Without you



Those Inbetween days are slightly disturbing.



Green light, seven eleven
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
You don’t smoke, don’t even want to
Hey now, i see you check your change
Dressed up like a car crash
The wheels are turning but you’re upside down
You say when he hits you, you don’t mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
Oh, now, Is that what it is?

Red lights, gray morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who’s around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip sync with the talk show hosts

And if you look, you look through me
And if you talk it’s not to me
And when I touch you, you don’t feel a thing

If I could stay.. then the night would give you up
Stay, and the day would keep it’s trust
Stay, and the night would be enough

Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio waves
With satellite television
You can go anywhere
Miami, New Orleans, London, Belfast and Beirut(??? not… just checking if you actually read the lyrics)

And if you listen I can’t call
And if you jump, you just might fall
And if you shout I’ll only hear you

If I could stay.. then the night would give you up
Stay then the day would keep it’s trust
Stay with the demons you drown
Stay with the spirit I found
Stay and the night would be enough

Three o’clock in the morning
It’s quiet and there’s no one around
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel runs to the ground
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel hits the ground



The teenager in me… ufff! I know, I know.



Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
It’s not warm when she’s away.
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
She’s always gone too long
Anytime she goes away.




I don’t know why this track came to me as an afterthought…


Moving up slowly
Inertia keeps
Moving up slowly
She comes
Moving up slowly
Moving up slowly
She comes moving up slowly
Inertia creeps moving up slowly
