lyrics

don ́t expect me to worship or love you so true
don ́t expect me to know what to do
let ́s take the first step and spend the night together
at the breakfast table, you can tell me again
what you told me last night in your gin stroken voice

words like bricks to build a wall
words like one big waterfall
some words are ripe
ripe like a grape
unspoken words pumping blood in my head
words spoken in fever
words spoken in love
most words I have spoken when I was drunk

I think of what you have told me last night
you said: I love you, I love you so true
with gestures so tender, they were making me blue
́cause you told me those words in your gin stroken voice

words like bricks to build a wall
words like one big waterfall
some words are ripe
ripe like a grape
unspoken words pumping blood in my head
words spoken in fever
words spoken in love
most words I have spoken when I was drunk

I carry a letter
a letter from you
I could spit on the paper
I ́d rather spit on you
but you are not here and you never will be
so I might as well carry on doing
what a long time ago I have learned
to speak

words like bricks to build a wall
words like one big waterfall
some words are ripe
ripe like a grape
unspoken words pumping blood in my head
words spoken in fever
words spoken in love
most words I have spoken when I was drunk
