Hey remember me, I'm back, you've forgotten | You can force a smile, but it reveals, you've forgotten | Was it this big, was it that strong | Are you wondering, why it took so long | How can we forget the things we really want, the things we want so much | The key is in the picture, make an image of the picture | Don't fear to lose the leading thread | It's running through me, it's running through me | And the images we see, we can live them very soon | Cuz free drugs are for sale | They’re hiding in the things we seem to want so softly, so polite | It's running through me, it's running through me

She says: I've been there, I've done that | She just goes for kicks when she's kissing | She says: I want it all and I want more | So we ride like hell to chase what's missing | And then she's coming down like a maniac | Yeah I'm OK, but thanks for asking | But hey do you really mind? | Or do you need another pill, another ride, to feed the kicks that you've defined | And then she's coming down like a maniac | She is never trusting | She is never dreaming | She is never wondering | She is always running | Oh my oh my, little maniac

You don't know anything about it | There are things I can't let go | You don't want to hear about it | This will make us fail to grow | You say you don't want to know about it | But a lone wolf is hard to chain | The key is in the understanding | But these things words can’t explain | I used to know this, that I can't let go this | But we have to notice, that we’re just below this | Now we don't know anything about it | I can lay myself open to you | We don't know where it's going | Or is that just what we knew? | I used to know this, that we can let grow this | But we have to notice, that we're just below this | I think we used to know this and we should undergo this | But we have to notice, that we're just below this

Have you ever tried to taste turbulence for a while | Was it a good taste, with a gentle smile | Have you ever tried to taste a restless heart | Could you take it with you or was it tearing you apart | It's all that you wanted, all that you needed | All that you wanted but never completed | I'm eager for quiet rest, calm to unfold | Naked & dressed, like a story untold | It's all that you wanted, but never defeated | It's all that you wanted but never completed | I'm in need of it now, there's nothing to defend | This might be a start, heading for another end | But it's all that you wanted, all that you needed | It's all that you wanted but never completed | You never tried to taste and you never cared | But it's all that you want, it's all you never had | While you just say it's a broken fever

| I'm sorry I don't know | I'm sorry you don't know | What is going on, I cast it in your teeth | I'm sorry you're in my head | I'm sorry she's in my bed | What is going on and what did you expect | I'm sorry I'm accused | I'm sorry you're confused | Reasons to proclaim another dead man's walk | I'm sorry I'm sorry I am | I'm sorry I can't call back | I'm sorry my horse is black | Blame it on your past or what you did expect | I'm sorry we wanna screw | I'm sorry I speak French too | Reasons to proclaim another dead man's walk | I'm sorry I'm sorry I think

The drugstore in my head, takes me into a motion picture | There are these helicopters, dancing like dragonflies | There are these wefts of smoke in this multicolor landscape | But I found some save place | Will you believe me? | I know they're here, the space invaders of my youth | No one believed me in my youth, but will you believe me | We can sleep between aeroplanes | Strange scenery for lovers lanes | We can stay with these aeroplanes, but we don't | I fell into this impressive adventure where I'm feeling fine | We find these parachutes, they will unfold with our minds | And we found the hope in Pandora’s box, forgotten in despair | Cuz no one believed me, but will you believe me? | Cuz we can fly & unfold | But will you believe me | Do you believe me?

I used to doubt all these things, you seem so sure about | You say you’re happy now, but are you really sure | What makes it evident, please show us now | Let’s shake some dust, allow some question marks | What are you hiding now | I know just a few things to believe in: my love, my cat and what I hold | You seem so sure again: your books, brands and your style | But you know you’re wrong | You say you really care, but I know you’re wrong | you say you really don’t mind, while your mind is strong | I think you’re gambling on the safe side, avoiding edges | But see what happens here, just see what happens here | It’s time to send in the clowns | Distract some minds from books and beliefs | Out of the head, into the heart | What is wrong with open endings?

I offer you a bunch of lights, you can wear them full of grace | They lead you out of darkness where your beauty can’t even shine | Please take this box of stars with you back into the night | It will be hard for a little while to close things in style | Then the stars will shine | We are warriors of the light | We surely are afraid sometimes, but we will keep up the fight | We love to share the beauty that we see all around | All those things we want to do, want to hold, want to share | You’re so deep in everything, my heart of hearts and everything | There will be days we face some demons, but I know that we can fight | Then the stars will shine | You can’t say yes when your hearts says no | We don’t put off big decisions | We remember the good things of the hard times | We think and act and don’t step back

| This could be my final song | The one you’re taking all along | Tell me something I don’t know | Can you tell me where to go? | And tell me why | I wasn’t born to follow | Just found nothing but sorrow | So tell me something I don’t know | Can you tell me where to go? | And tell me why | Maybe I know why…
