Afterglow

i put it in a drawer
and leave it there for a little while
just to take it out later
and marvel at it
by then it’s gonna shine from within
an afterglow to warm my hands and heart with

leave me with the afterglow
it will be more beautiful
than the blazing flame it was
a million moments ago

when it finally fades
you’ll be on your way here
to shine for me
and warm my hands and heart
…till then

leave me with the afterglow
it will be more beautiful
than the blazing flame it was
that burnt us out

almost gone
but almost here
almost gone
but almost there
you’re almost here
you’re all

Too Soon

ife in the balance
out of our hands
out of control

life by a thread
claw, cling, clamber, clutch
don’t let go

(too close a call)
(too far away)
not now
not yet
too sudden
too soon

unheard of still life
connected to tubes
where never was standstill

frozen in time
we hold our breaths
read the morse code

(too close a call)
(too far away)
not now
not yet
too sudden
too soon

please wake up
open your eyes
please come back
don’t give up

(too close a call)
(too far away)
not now
not yet
too sudden
too soon

In Time

in time i thought i’d find the words
i need to tell you
in time i thought i’d find the spunk
to spill my guts to you

now days have come and gone
weeks and months have passed
and i to whom
words come so easily
otherwise
have kept quiet
have kept quiet

in time i thought you’d find out
why all this attention
in time i thought you’d find yourself
wondering at last

now days have come and gone
weeks and months have passed
and you to whom
words come so easily
otherwise
have kept quiet
have kept quiet

(open the door)
(pick up the phone)
is there still time?
is there still time?
is there still time?
is there still time?

now days have come and gone
weeks and months have passed
and we to whom
words come so easily
otherwise
have kept quiet
have kept quiet
can’t keep quiet
can’t keep quiet
anymore

Patchwork

your words all mangled and broken
you don’t really make sense
stop motion sentences
that hang in the air unvoiced incomplete
i piece them together like a crossword puzzle
starting at the edges trying to get to the core

a patchwork of guesswork to make it complete
a patchwork of guesswork to fill in the blanks
a patchwork of guesswork fraying at the seams
a patchwork of guesswork let’s face it a bloody mess

a bit of a sudden twist, oh
such suspicious suspense
pauses announcing a pause
too good to be true you have got to be kidding
left here in limbo till hell freezes over
all i asked of you was not to string me along

a patchwork of guesswork to make it complete
a patchwork of guesswork a stab in the dark
a patchwork of guesswork snarling at the snarl
a patchwork of guesswork unpause or cut me loose

is this too much to ask
can’t be too much to ask
is this too much to ask
shouldn’t be too much to ask

Scaredy Cat’s Lullaby

why always so scared
over and over again
you’re not gonna fall to pieces
you’ll come out unscathed
almost

just go ahead
and do your best
it might take a while but
it’ll be more than enough
as usual

just listen to yourself
you already know
you’ll be fine in the end
it’s gonna be okay

don’t just sit there
and pity yourself
then nothing will happen at all
and you know it
my little scaredy cat

there’s help all around
just take off the blindfold
and see for yourself
i know it’s hard
harder than ever before
but you’ll make it

just listen to yourself
you already know
you’ll be fine in the end
it’s gonna be okay

my little scaredy cat

A Little

a little lost today
a little more than yesterday
a little less tomorrow hopefully
a little less each day
a little less lost

give me some time to curl up in whispers
remain in hiding for a while
gloomy in shadows so deeply
still breathing intensely
to finally surface renewed
completely

a little moan today
a little moan tomorrow
a little moaner I’ll be
till I’ll get better
so I’m not gonna moan for long

give me some time to curl up in whispers
remain in hiding for a while
gloomy in shadows so deeply
still breathing intensely
to finally surface renewed
completely

a little better already
a little better tonight
a little better tomorrow
a little better
give me some time to curl up in whispers
remain in hiding for a while
gloomy in shadows so deeply
still breathing intensely
to finally surface renewed
completely

every time I’m heart broken
it’s gonna hurt a little less I hope
the way you get used to pain
if you only feel it long enough

Breathing Underwater

you are like diving under ice
i thought i could handle it but i can’t
i thought i got it all worked out
i only filled the void with nothing

i inhale exhale inhale exhale
it doesn’t stop the feeling
i’m breathing underwater
i’m diving under ice

it was just a temporary membrane
it bursted today it’s gone
still right now at this moment
life seems too precious to me

i inhale exhale inhale exhale
it doesn’t stop the feeling
i’m breathing underwater
i’m diving under ice

soothing skin you don’t know
how much you saved my life

Paperheart

this paperheart
wasn’t big enough for love
this paperheart
could so easily burn

you did well
to hide it from me
by chance
it might have turned out real

have you ever thought of my heart breaking
into smithereens
have you ever thought of my heart beating
deep within my body

this paperheart
could too easily crease
this paperheart
fragile and pristine

you did well
to hide it from me
by chance
it might have turned out real

have you ever thought of my heart breaking
into smithereens
have you ever thought of my heart beating
deep within my body

this paperheart
if you gave it to me
this paperheart
might whisper three simple words

this paperheart
of yours
this paperheart

Unspoken

in a half lit underworld
it hides dreamily
unconscious of its importance
and the smell of silence possesses the earth

she waits there undone
for glimpses of itself revealed
if not the whole unveiled
and silence fills the room full of unspoken vowels

she sat there (unspoken)
night turned to day to night repeatedly repeatedly
she sat there (unspoken)
the moon waxing and waning

first whispers are left
soon the whole world falls quiet
so she goes on a mission
to dig for a response to rescue all sound

she might be in danger
cause she denies muteness
she simply doesn’t accept
so only she hunts for the answer

she walked there (unspoken)
night turned to day to night repeatedly repeatedly
she walked there (unspoken)
the moon waxing and waning

it won’t get away unsaid
she won’t let its lips stay sealed
for any further silence to descend
she’ll make it scream for everyone to hear

so if you feel the earth rumble
and hear the ground roar
you know it wasn’t left unspoken
and finally again all sound fills the air

she rests there (unspoken)
night turns to day to night repeatedly repeatedly
she rests there (unspoken)
the moon waxing and waning

In Unison

in unison
things so new
and unfamiliar once
already so well known
and natural to you
but suddenly
you look around
and see the beauty
of it all

let’s enjoy these moments
not just let them pass
let’s savour each moment to the full
burn them into memory

all your cells
vibrate within
the frequency of life
and form a
wonderful sound
in these moments
in unison
with everything and all

let’s enjoy these moments
not just let them pass
let’s savour each moment to the full
burn them into memory

it makes you feel complete
and utterly lost at once
simply inexplicable
the moments that matter the most
the moments that matter the most
