01 Overture

Music & Lyrics by Abbing & Batink. ©2017

 
I tell myself to let it go
Kyrie
It is so lovely
I don’t want to go
 
I’m falling, I’m falling, I won’t disappear
Don’t try to change me
I tell myself to let it go
I’m falling, I’m falling, I won’t disappear
Are you afraid of the unknown?
[John, back to you]
 
Kyrie
Kyrie
 
Supposed to be
You gotta be free
Running free
Don’t try to change me
All the signs are showing
Early morning sunbeams
 
Supposed to be
You gotta be free
[Because, if you don’t stand for something]
You gotta be free
[You fall for anything]
 
Hold me and believe me
Hold me in your arms
Searching for the outside
I want to say goodbye
 
Please tell me what’s the punch line
Little bird is flying home
[Es gibt ein Lächeln für jede Situation]
As my leafs are falling, clouds are passing by
[Es gibt ein Lächeln für jeden Augenblick]
 
Please tell me what’s the punch line
Little bird is flying home
I have to let it go
Don’t try to change me
The crowd you need to stand apart
 
What would be the point
And I tried to explain
What would be the point
In the most simple way that I know
 
With all the games we play
[It’s in my mind]
And all the shades of grey
[But the glow remains as eyes reset]
And I’ve tried to be me
 
Softly, quietly, nervously
All the signs are showing
Softly, quietly, nervously
Memories they come and go
You don’t hear
 
Please tell me what’s the punch line
Cause you’re stuck
Between a rock and a hard place
[That really makes me sad]
I’ve made my share of mistakes
We live in the void
My head is up high
You don’t hear
 
Please tell me what’s the punch line
As in those golden days
[Do you hear that bird?]
Little bird is flying home
We live, we live in the void
[C’est le ton qui fait la musique]
You don’t hear
 
Cause you’re stuck
Between a rock and a hard place
[Over there, common, it’s there!]
Little bird is flying home
We live, we live in the void
[And most important of all
Always stay positive]
