about

This is a love song I wrote in Berlin in 2010. Lyrics inspired by Bo Diddly's 'I am a Man'.

lyrics

H.I.M.

He said:
I wanna paint you, recreate you
Fix you in colour and line
Freeze you in time
Early November and the weather’s benign
Face in the mirror I see grey in the green eyes
Won’t you write one for me?
I said be careful what you wish for
He thinks he’s taking the lead
But I’ve been here before

M
E
N

I keep him safe
I keep him hidden
Half a habit I have from when our love was forbidden
I said: I’ll help you if you need to forget me
Realised I loved him in the backseat of a taxi
Pankow bis Frankfurter Tor
We told the driver we were married
I woke up alone on the floor
Knowing all that I needed was

H
I
M

Last week I met a long lost lover and I told him he belittled me
He looked up from the table, into my eyes and said:
You shouldn’t take me seriously
I said: I don’t now, but you know how I did then
No matter how cold you make yourself out to be
Don't you ever, never pretend you don't remember

Victoria
Gloria

There’s been a collision of head and of heart
My own indecision has torn me apart
And now I just feel so hollow
Today I exist but I’ll be living tomorrow
What have I done?
If I make it through this winter
I’ll run away to the sun
They say the grass is always green
Green is good
And so is he
Green is good
And so is he

I want to paint you
Recreate you
Fix you in colour and line
Freeze you in time
