parachute

 

I’ve got a car but no one to drive it, ahead a war but no one to fight it

And any kind of movement makes me go further down in the silt

 

This ever-changing life that I hightly prayed for 

Left me fucked up, lying wasted on the front porch

I’d call your name but you’re not home anymore

 

I was sixteen when you died, it took me ages to find the light that you shared with us

Why does it have to be dark for us to see the stars?

 

Here I’m waiting for our bus to take me home and I start shivering like never before

It’s all too real, I want you here with me but you’re never coming back, no

 

So please forgive me if I try to let this go but I can’t carry you around with me anymore

Forever I’ll hold on to your black spectacle frame 

I know the lenses have fallen out but I don’t want them replaced

 

We will remember you

You were a friend, a son, a brother, for us all a parachute

This summer came and went swiftly away, and I was left in the snow

I wish you came to pull me out, to pull me out of this all time low

 

From dusk until dawn, heavenly called

All that I know is that I’ll see you again, once I’ve grown old

» Forever I’ll hold on to your black spectacle frame

I know the lenses have fallen out but I don’t want them replaced «
