THE SKY WAS IN MY EYES 

the train left 
goes to spain 
left me 
in the rain 
traveling so fast on its way 
when will I see you again 
and as usual in this land 
the sky was crying 
and when I missed you holding my hand 
the sky was in my eyes 

I called you everyday 
not knowing what to say 
I only want to hear your voice 
when you are so far away 
and as usual....... 

ALARM 

galzwarte gedachten 
drochten fnuikend door mijn diepst 
in het hol van mijn hart 
een echoput 
gillen sirenes 
het duister lokt de ondergang 
lokt mij in haar put 
versterf ik 
versterf ik
