Once in a lullaby

 

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
There’s this land that I heard of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds die
There’s this land that I heard of once in a lullaby

My friends are leaving, I don’t blame them, no
Some turn their backs and some just have to go
Oh well, I’m getting restless, I knock but no one’s home
And it’s so quiet, nobody calls my phone

I long for closure, don’t know where to start
When I get started, don’t know how to close things up
The sky was falling, it made our bodies shake
All that’s falling will sooner or later break

And I stand alone, trying to keep warm
As the beat goes on people come but then they’re gone

I’m lost here struggling, no ”you’re here”-signs, I’m trapped
Was a red dot, now erased from the map
I’m melting, release the monkeys in my head
No yellow brick road, the wicked witch is dead

Scared to come close or just not interested
Either the lack of words or way to much is said
You undress me with your eyes but i want more
Let’s go all the way, undress me to the core

And I stand alone, trying to keep warm
As the beat goes on people come but then they’re gone

I wish I was slim, your airbed is full of holes
Then I could sleep tight without sinking so
Then I could wake up and keep your whole life clean
I’ld be your slut, your queen – all in between, baby

The wizard he flew off in his big balloon
He gave me no deal, he locked me in that room
No prince has yet seen my shoes are ruby red
I’ve forgot what’s bad, the north, the east, the west?

No, I just stand alone, trying to keep warm
As the beat goes on, people come but then they’re gone

Rainbows and over, wish upon a star
Lullabies out of tune and birds bizarre
How the great and powerful made me a fool
The city looks green but I can’t find no jewel

I’ve turned my hourglass to many times
Seen it run out but still I stay alive
There’s no place like home, I said and now i’m here
Just fuck what I said, no one’s no longer near

I just stand alone, trying to keep warm
As the beat goes on people come but then they’re gone
