Album lyrics: Listen And Wait

Beautiful Dawn

I woke up this morning

Right before dawn

Way too scared

To face the day yet.

I tried to calm myself by

Looking at your face

Still asleep

Right by my side

 

I heard you breathing slowly, slowly

Heard the rain falling closely, closely

Heard the awakening of

the city I love

 

Beautiful dawn, beautiful dawn

Silent beautiful dawn

 

When the stars disappear

We'll be lying in our bed sleeping

We won't see the new day

Rising from the ashes

 

I heard you breathing slowly, slowly

Heard the rain falling closely, closely

Heard the awakening of the city I love

 

Beautiful dawn, beautiful dawn

Silent beautiful dawn

 

I wanna wake up

when the last stars still linger

in a pale blue sky

I wanna feel the calm these early hours are giving me

 

Beautiful dawn, beautiful dawn

Silent beautiful dawn

 


Cigarettes And Wine

All the time when I try to be prepared

When I try to do what I should, when I try to be good

All the time when I try to calm down my thoughts

To domesticate my heart so it doesn't tear me apart

 

Then you come around

With all of your mess

With your cigarettes and wine

And I never get there in time

 

All the time when I try to get up early

To choose the right dress without making a mess

All the time when I try to start the day with gymnastics

To practise my scales, try not to get into frays

 

Then you come around

With all of your mess

With your cigarettes and wine

And I never get there in time

 

All the time when I try to be courteous

Yes, articulate and neat, try not to talk while I eat

All the time when I try to calm down my thoughts

To domesticate my heart so it doesn't tear me apart

Then you come around

With all of your mess

With your cigarettes and wine

And I never get there in time

 

I try so hard to be well-mannered

To fit in and make my parents proud

But with you it's way much more fun to misbehave

And to be wild and loud

 

You come around

With all of your mess

With your cigarettes and wine

And I never get there in time

 

 

 

 


Collecting Pieces

I'm walking right behind you

Picking up the small pieces that you're dropping

And I try to put them all together

But they never fit and I never understand

Will you ever try to understand

All the small parts that make me into who I am?

Will you only touch my aching outlines

Never wondering why I'm shivering?

 

I'm collecting pieces

I try to find them all

 

We've been quite a pair, oh don't you think

The tall great man and the little thing

But you see it's growing colder every day

In your shade - but I can't walk away

 

I'm collecting pieces

I try to find them all

 

When you cry and your tears flow, I will listen to them!

Yes, when oh when you cry, and your tears flow I will listen to them!

But what, what if I cry and all my tears flow

Will you listen to them fall?

 

Oh I'm collecting pieces

I try to find them all

 

 

 

 

Everything I´ve Got In My Pocket

Everything I've got in my pocket is

Lipstick to leave a mark on your coffee cup

'Cause I'm gonna leave you before sunrise

But I want you to remember all my lies

 

I wanted to make love to you,

So what was I supposed to do,

To make you want that too?

 

Everything I've got in my pocket is

My favourite yellowish shirt

I'm gonna leave it right beside your bed

So whenever I want to wear it I have to smile

 

 

I wanted to make love to you,

So what was I supposed to do,

To make you want that too?

 

 

Everything I've got in my pocket is

A tape with my favourite song.

I'm gonna leave it instead of a message

'Cause there's nothing more to say

 

I'm sorry

I didn't want more than this night

I'm sorry

But once again I'm not in love

           

 

 

First-Class Suicide

Whenever I

look into your eyes

The only thing I see

Is the reflection of your TV

Whenever I

wanna look into your soul

The only thing I see

Is your damn TV

Whenever I

try to talk to your mind

The only things I hear

Are the silly phrases you learned from TV

 

'Cause you are way too bored to live your life

'Cause you are way too bored to live your life

           

Your life

Is a first-class suicide

You really make me wanna

Provoke a fight

Yes your life

Is a first-class suicide

You really make me wanna

Hit you so hard - I wanna hit you, yes hit you…

 

I was going wild

When I first kissed you

Maybe I sucked you dry

That day

How was I supposed to know

That there was nothing else to come

 

'Cause you have lost everything

That used to be so thrilling

 

Your life

Is a first-class suicide

You really make me wanna

Provoke a fight

           

 

Yes your life

Is a first-class suicide

You really make me wanna

Hit you so hard – I wanna hit you, hit you hard

 

I could hardly save my soul

When you decided to

Kill yourself a little bit every day

A soap-overdose, intoxicated

By doing nothing

 

Yes your life

Is a first-class suicide

You really make me wanna

Hit you so hard – I wanna hit you, hit you hard

 


 

 

Listen And Wait

You've got your own mind

But mine is so strong

That often I find

Myself interrupting, disturbing your thoughts - so stupid and blind

You've got so much to say

But too often I just can't wait

For you to put

Word after word – to verbalize what's inside

 

And I keep on doing this

Again, again, again, again

I need to calm down myself

And learn to listen and wait

Cause there lies, oh so much beauty

In the breaks I never take

 

I know that there's so much I'm missing

'cause I'm being out there

too fast and too loud

to hear the beauty of your mind

 

And I keep on doing this

Again, again, again, again

I need to calm down myself

And learn to listen and wait

Cause there lies, oh so much beauty

In the breaks I never take

 

 

Love Me Quietly
