that was your mom who I just informed now go back to bed while it's still warm not one thing you need that is not in this lair just lay down your arms - you're under my care close those eyes goodnight-night to you go and doze this cold winter through and see what time will do let's pull up a chair now Janosch is here for Ich mach dich gesund, sagte der Bär and when you're fast asleep I will play with your hair through my tears I will breathe you're under my care close those eyes goodnight-night to you go and doze this cold winter through the curtain's drawn the sun long gone close those eyes goodnight-night to you no, I won't take a straight no from you and when spring arrives we will have to see if you're sick of life or maybe me

and then there was a flood of tears in secrecy a questionnaire answered with a silence treat and then there was a phoney smile of irony a double bed with a single sheet a ceiling mirror with a focus switch a blackest night a lack of might a lower lip’s tiny little twitch

look at you now in such a rush but one big step behind you need a clue now all blinded by the gypsy of your mind if you give me you hand - I'll do what I can to get you calm by making up the meaning of the lines in your palm look at you now uptight and in denial for a while you look like shit now it's the tears of things and halb so schlimm come on, show me that smile and give me your hand - I'll do what I can to get you calm by making up the meaning of the lines in your palm look at you now

the Benz fans are turned up high land pans before your eyes flashback to father's suntanned thighs hopped on in driver's seat up front with dangling feet chest belt his muscled arm around and the sun goes down the lake wakes a hard blue sky waves break and Sam says 'hi' flashback to Super Snorkel Spy young blonde with fishing net strong, fond his back half wet splash track and underwater sound and the sun goes down please stop the thinking and the torture you can really only take so much things do look better in the morning without any grudge the twins bathe at 10 a.m. grins taped on Sony cam flashback to mother's glaring lamp dives, swift into the roar wives drift shift, save on shore jam-packed the night that Natty drowns and the sun goes down please stop the thinking and the torture you can really only take so much things do look better in the morning without any grudge would you stop this futile thinking would you stop these figments now
