Footsteps

Der Text geht mir seit Tagen nicht mehr aus dem Kopf…

Footsteps

A motel-kind of room
You’re lying in now
Jerking with your toes
The only feeling
That’s left is apathy…perhaps…fear?!
Do you remember when it begun?
Once upon a time a little girl…
Yeah, she lost all she had.

When your sky’d turned into grey
You’re mother was not there
“Protect me god” did you pray
But did anybody care?
These footsteps on the stairs…
So afraid - no – so afraid - no!

But you wouldn’t tell a word
No… you never will
‘Cause everything’s a dream
And you believe it?!

“Wasn’t there a shadow on the wall?”
(Don’t panic - no one is there)
But your mind begins to fall
(Don’t you lose control!)
The neighbours…they didn’t tell a word
But I’m sure they heard your screams…

But you wouldn’t tell a word
No… you never will
‘Cause everything’s a dream
And you believe it?!
Your eyes had left their whole intensity
Lifeless living…
With just seventeen…

Now you have not any feelings left
But you can be sure
Daddy’s little secret is really good kept
Mummy will never know the truth
Under your blanket you’re not really safe
From these footsteps on your stairs

But you wouldn’t tell a word
No… you never will
‘Cause everything’s a dream
And you believe it?!

No, she shouldn’t be afraid
She could be so happy…
So young - so scared
You took all of her
You took anything of her…
Are you proud, hu?!
You feel like big man or what??!
You didn’t understand anything
You didn’t understand any word anybody told you
Least at all what it means
To be a father…

Be a father.
