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
