lyrics

My love...
my love...
my joy
my pain
my love.
My dearest and sweetest agony.
My most wonderful tragedy.

There’s no turning back for me now, it won´t be tamed, it can’t be chained.
Come back... come back...

Bring your light divine back to my garage.
I can’t bear these thoughts... I can’t!

I thought you would be in that stupid shop.
I thought I saw you on the bus.
I’m pretty sure you were in that Café, or am I just going crazy.

You made me feel like I was beautiful and amazing.

I wanna be blinded by your love.
I could kiss away your tears.
I surround myself with women, to fill up the void you left.

I can’t find a word to describe you.

I do not need your encouraging words.
I do not need your sympathy.
Fill my days and nights with roses.
Make me shine again.
Hold me in your arms again.
Make me shine….

All the things I wanted to share with you just lie around like trash.
I thought I would heal by writing this song…
…it makes me miss you even more.

I can’t find a word to describe you.


Ask your angels, ask your numbers
They sure will tell you...
come back, my darling.
Ask the weather, your fortuneteller.
They sure will tell you to come back to me.

Last night i dreamt that we sat on the sofa,
We would sing in octaves and harmonize till morning
Our songs of fear and kindness,
the strength of our weakness.

Be brave ever after
Fill your home with love and laughter.
When pulled in by the dark night
Come find me in the twilight.
