What made us think we were wise and we’d never compromise.

When I was young I knew everything
She a punk who rarely ever took advice
Now I’m guilt stricken,
Sobbing with my head on the floor
Stop a baby’s breath and a shoe full of rice

I can’t be held responsible
She was touching her face
I won’t be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and
We’d never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe
We’d ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen

My best friend took a week’s
Vacation to forget her
His girl took a weeks’s worth of
Valium and slept
And now he’s guilt stricken sobbing with his
Head on the floor
Thinks about her now and how he never really
Wept he says

I can’t be held responsible
She was touching her face
I won’t be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and
We’d never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe
We’d ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen

hey yeah
hey yeah
hey yeah

We’ve tried to wash our hands of all this
We never talk of our lacking relationships
And how we’re guilt stricken sobbing with our
Heads on the floor
We fell through the ice when we tried not to
Slip, we’d say

I can’t be held responsible
She was touching her face
And I won’t be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and
We’d never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe
We’d ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and
We’d never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe
We’d ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen
We were merely freshmen

Es ist gerade keine gute Zeit.
Dieser Song erinnert mich an meine späte Teenagerzeit, als wir dachten, dass alles geht – keine Kompromisse. Alles hat sich geändert, einige Träume sind zerplatzt, die Realität hat uns die ein oder andere Ohrfeige verpasst, aber diese Sehnsucht in uns, die ist noch da, irgendwo. Hoffe ich. Hoffe ich sehr.

A song to make love to – ‚Three Wishes‘

We’d be so less fragile
If we’re made from metal
And our hearts from iron
And our minds from steel
And if we built an army
Full of tender bodies
Could we love each other
Would we stop to feel

And you want three wishes:
One to fly the heavens
One to swim like fishes
And then one you’re saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away

You say you want to know her like a lover
And undo her damage, she’ll be new again
Soon you’ll find that if you try to save her
It will lose her anger
You will never win

And you want three wishes:
You want never bitter
And all delicious
And then one you’re saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away

You want three wishes:
One to fly the heavens
One to swim like fishes
You want never bitter
And all delicious
And a clean conscience
And all it’s blisses
You want one true lover with a thousand kisses
You want soft and gentle and never vicious
And then one you’re saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away
