About you

How we moved

Between the devil and the deep blue sea - Digital album cover


You call me daddy


You’re catching teardrops with your mouth
You said that you were thirsty, but didn’t want to drink
I’m reaching for your hands
But you hide them behind your back

I try to play a simple game with you
But you never understand the rules
And your hands make moves I’ve never seen
It seems like you’re always in between

And you call me daddy all the time
And you don’t know my name
Or what’s wrong with your mind
Everything that I explain, you will just forget
And it’s never clear that I’m not your dad

You laugh when I tell you that you’ve got to eat
You laugh when I tell you that there’s someone to meet
You lauhh when I ask you can you please shut up and sleep
But you’re happy and you know that I love you so deep

And you call me daddy all the time
And you don’t know my name
Or what’s wrong with your mind
Everything that I explain, you will just forget
And it’s never clear that I’m not your dad
