lyrics

I’ve been watching all that fuss from above
Steadily forsaking hastily receding from what I’m for
“Not anymore!”
I was frightened I can feel in my throat
All the words colliding creaking like an icy chandeliers
“It’s all over me!”
I was kneeling down to tie my shoe
“now I’m feeling dangerous marching through the streets I used to know
Not anymore!”

“Keep on walking” without a warning
Through the shiny gloves around
Pass your mother eyes so worried
Pass the silhouettes somehow
Face to face and blinking
You started singing
“nothing matters when we’are dancing, nothing matters when we spin around”

You’ve been watching all that fuss from above
Steadily forsaking hastily receding from what I’m for
“Not anymore!”
I was frightened I can feel in my throat
All the words colliding creaking like an icy chandeliers
“It’s all over me!”

“Keep on walking” without warning
Through the shiny gloves around
Without yelling or commoving
Just the sound of “you and I”
Like there was no morning
You come up and show me
There’s no need to get discovered
There’s no need to get along with this century
Mobile phones and chips and clicks
But from now on
“nothing matters when we’are dancing, nothing matters when we spin around”
All in roundabouts
