fireworks 02:14
fireworks across the sky and fireworks all over my fireworks all over your oh fireworks all through the night and fireworks of different kinds fireworks your fire always works fireworks in movie scenes and fireworks in silly dreams and fireworks on new years eve fireworks i´m up for you and fireworks i´d die for you oh fireworks i fall into love with you cause fireworks you look so cool and fireworks you need no school cause fireworks you´re smart you ain´t no fool but will you still be there when your light goes out oh will you still be there when your dust comes down fireworks illuminate fireworks are never late fireworks are always in time there´s fireworks around the globe and fireworks on every slope oh fireworks you even impress the pope fireworks your shows are great and fireworks you make my days but fireworks you´ll never sleep in the hay fireworks for president and fireworks should never end oh fireworks i wish we could shake hands fireworks you kiss the moon and fireworks you leave to soon oh fireworks your fire always works but will you still be there when your light goes out oh will you still be there when your dust comes down

september stones and ice cream cones while the stars are out of reach pitch black hats and lazy white cats on your postcard from the east oh from the east oh from the east far far from the east talk show hosts and famous little ghosts and at night i fall asleep with your head on fire and your hands on the wire it ain´t easy to leave ain´t´easy to leave ain´t easy to leave so so easy to leave revolving doors i saw some marbles on the floor where someone left a dream on this gloomy afternoon like a dusty grey cartoon with portraits of old things oh all the things oh all the things all kinds of old things there´s a left handed sky there´s your veins running dry you are a puppet on a string get your feet on the ground colored leaves all around you do it all again do it all again do it all again you do it all again
3.
once you were made out of those icicles that now are lying in my cold hands blue eyes a blue sky you keep on running to where the horizon ends and once you were made out of those eyelashes that i would find in my jar of milk here in the meantime i go wherever i could lose my gravity again and this when the telephone would ring and this is with your head over heels and this is when they broadcast the rain and this is like a picture of the wind and this is when and this when oh those icicles and eyelashes oh and this is when oh this when oh those icicles and eyelashes oh
4.
if monday i could come around then tuesday we would change wednesday we can´t leave the house and thursday it rained friday is when the season starts and saturday was great and sunday is a sunday is a sunday there's always something on my mind there's always something on my mind that is not there i hope these walls won´t break your bones i hope this world won´t make you crack when you fell in love with the paper planes when you fell in love with the pedestrian ways and her coffee stains there's always something on my mind there's always something on my mind that is not there so you sang above the blue machines and you sang above the green machines and now i sing about you cause you are always on my mind you are always on my mind but i am not there yes you are always on my mind you are always on my mind but i am not

the journey 02:50
when we crossed the river there was rain when we crossed the mountains there was snow when we crossed the sky there were clouds and i could feel the ocean and then i saw the ocean when we crossed the forest there were birds we came along a building it was closed and when we crossed the desert there were stones and i could feel the ocean and then i saw the ocean
6.
this silence 03:43
there is a hummingbird sleeping in her mouth and there is a mellotron with a strawberry sound and these are the hazy days there is not so much around but shadows of the rubber plants in the garden where she was found and there is less oxygen than a year ago they turned it into cars and trains at least they say so and those are the pieces of a puzzle that she holds like memories of another past and silence this silence since she is gone and sometimes she is killing the saints and sometimes she gets lost and sometimes she can hardly wait and sometimes there is hope but who are the demons they might hang around her heart she is watching all the satellites she is wishing for a star
7.
i fell asleep with your lipstick on you lay awake until the break of dawn what happened next oh i don´t know have you seen the first of snow you said you´d like to quit that silly game i said it feels like i need to entertain how could we go back to the start i guess they gentrified our hearts and where are the space ships when you need them the most and where are the clients with their ordinary clothes i found a ribbon in your hair you found some objects to repair i found a ribbon in your hair you had a few things to prepare and who counts the monsters in your cup of tea and who does the dishes in my memory how come we are always on the run here on our island near the sun i wish that we had a square to dance upon you wish the neighbours would surely come back home they left the keys there by the door they left some groceries on the floor and what about my whispers on your answering machine and what about your poems for insurance companies i threw the garbage into the trees you put your arms around my knees you put your arms around my knees i closed your eyes we did not breathe you closed my eyes we did not breathe they closed their eyes we did not breathe

j´ai rêvé d´avoir perdu ton petit chat la dernière nuit j´ai remarqué que l´été était trop froid ne chauffait plus j´ai rêvé que je vivais au bout de la station que j' ai vécu la soirée de la révolution j´ai rêvé que les enfants avaient mangé les histoires et j' ai traduit les bruits de ton petit chat noir et je suis reveillé et je suis reveillé

pacific 04:29
way back home and more like an island she is made out of sand stone go watch the water rise go watch the water rise she said and i was long gone feeling more like the strangest place for any other reason i couldn´t remember her face go watch the water rise until we all disappear go count the sand flies she said among those dragon trees go watch the water rise until we disappear go count all the sand flies and sleep on the dragon trees i would sleep on the dragon trees until we disappear i would count all the sand flies and i watched the water rise i watched all the water rise i watched all the water rise i watched all the water rise and i watched you
10.
oh i am a a little bit of a mess these days and a mess these years and i could so easily describe the wallpaper in someone else's room it's someone else's room it's someone else's room it's someone else's room it's someone else and when i speak i won't open my mouth i think of all the things i could have watched as long as your favourite and my favourite as your favourite doubts and here is where i am with all my friends and my slightly perfect dreams my slightly perfect dreams once i had a happy heart once you had a heavy heart once i had a heavy heart once you had a happy heart once i had a happy heart once you had a heavy heart once i had a heavy heart once you had a happy heart

how to swim 03:33
so how to swim in this shallow water i thought we could see the houses from here but i can hear the sparks surrounding your shoulders fountains made out of thin let go let go let it go let go let go let´s go anyway so how to breathe in this cold thin air it seems like you have never come this far but inside the trees summer grows older as you wish for a hurricane let go let go let it go let go let go let´s go anyway
12.
i found a scar on the pavement it could keep us warm for a while twenty-four times i count my blessings there are three more words there is nothing left to hide haven´t you heard the news today haven´t you heard the news today the truth of the day i like the cold near my window you like to see the sun in my eyes they took the clocks that grow in my backyard they stole the birds from the skies haven´t you heard the news today haven´t you heard the news today the truth of the day
13.
like a storm cloud you always follow me around you always follow me around and i am falling i fall into another hole i turn into an obstacle in your hallway the one that you have always known the one without a telephone so tomorrow we meet before the words gets old we leave before the blood gets cold there´s a stone throw there are fabrics i could never break there is beautiful catastrophes for your sorrow i fall into another hole i turn into an obstacle
14.
are you still obsessed with the weather with white elephants and with ancient words are you serving your meals in a suitcase you prefer to be juggling with herbs and you brush your teeth about five times a day and you shine all your shoes in a quiet precise way you are sewing some good friends with blue needles as a patchwork of all that you have done for the first time this feels like the last time watching the invisible wounds and you ride your bike until the break of the dawn would you spend all your savings on another brand new home you are chain smoking thoughts you are a chain smoking thought you are chain smoking thoughts you are a chain smoking thought
15.
oh hesitate don't hesitate come call me when the night falls go chase my words through the darkness near clotheslines and fireflies we could dance we could dance oh hesitate don't hesitate come kill me to feel safe again go drown my clouds in the water for one of us belongs to the sky disguised oh hesitate don´t hesitate stay and see the colours grow the silhouettes the shade and your laughter they remind me of a dream of a dream of a dream
16.
how come you´re still around in this greenhouse we built years ago how come you´re safe and sound seems like you wanted to grow old now look at yourself blind now look at yourself old go look around to find this is not the greenhouse you used to know - no
