Tension

Lyrics

You slid from the highway
There’s nothing I can say
This tension is unbearable

The drawings in your room
the cradle and the books
gave me hope just for a while

Every day a life will fade away
it’s a pain that must be understood
but to stay behind to wonder why
is not enough to break out from the gloom

Every night a light keeps me awake
it’s the flame that you lit up for me
but the fire cannot feed on the past
It’s alive, but how long will it last?

So long, I know we’ll never meet again
no one can take your place
Always a storm will tear us from the ground
Our roots land on a new terrain

I’m standing by the stream
where you learned how to swim
Now the ice is closing in

Every day a life will fade away
it’s a pain that must be understood
but to stay behind to wonder why
is not enough to break out from the gloom

Every night a light keeps me awake
it’s the flame that you lit up for me
but the fire cannot feed on the past
I’m alive, but how long will I last?

So long, I know we’ll never meet again
no one can take your place
Always a storm will tear us from the ground
Our roots in the air

So long, I know we’ll never meet again
no one can take your place
Always a storm will tear us from the ground
Our roots land on a new terrain
