lyrics

Will you pour me something lighter?
I have poison in my cup
I need this to roll easy
Or not at all
We load up on brief episodes
And walk away just when our water's sold
When lust and pride are still
We move on
And that's all I want
Is that all you need?
You say you wanna run with me
But you don't really have that speed
Well, I couldn't fuel you
It's the other way 'round, it has always been
I'd use you to push me and pull me
Till you think of me as the man I am not
Get lost, dry your eyes, love
No wonder or truth is in your life
The cost of love is way too high
I move on and
Become the storm, get high on raging
While my barely open soul, it sighs
Will I grow cold when I pour rain on
All the other hungry souls?
Well, that's all I want
Is that all you need?
You say you wanna run with me
But you don't really have that speed
I couldn't fuel you
It's the other way 'round, it has always been
I will just push you and pull you
Till you see me as I am
On my way to paradise
I found fever in a lover's hands
On my way to paradise
I lost myself, I lost myself
On my way to paradise
I found healing in a stranger's land
On my way to paradise
I lost myself, I lost myself
I lost myself, I lost myself, I lost myself
I lost myself, I lost myself, I lost myself
Yeah that's all I want
Is that all you need?
You say you wanna run with me
But you don't really have that speed
I could fuel you now
Not the other way 'round, as it's always been
I will just hold you and love you
Till you see me as the man I am now

about

The Night Gardener Berlin, Germany

Singer-Songwriter / Alternative Folk

Live-Teaser: youtu.be/gBGbs4ep_vw

It's all about looking, and focusing, and going deeper, trying to pull something very rare out, and then holding it next to another object that had been retrieved, seeing how well they could speak to each other, and then continuing that process.
