With a brave face, I pull on the cape.

You're walking ahead of me,
Glancing back once again to see,
If I'm dragging my feet along the stones,
Feels like I'm walking over bones,
Feels like I'm falling down to hell,
With you there laughing, and wishing me well.

Because it seems like I've been left to wither without you,
And I don't know where on earth I can head to,
Without you here by my side, I will hide,
You're the one here keeping me alive,
Don't let me shrivel up and die,
Baby, please don't say goodbye,
Look into my eyes, peer into my heart,
Think about how this will tear me apart.

The colours of a kaleidoscope,
Forced under a microscope,
What's the point of sitting here if you don't return?
What's the point of listening when I don't learn?
Ich denke, dass,
Ich denke, dass,
I don't seem to be able to remember any more,
Although I remember breaking some kind of law,
But at least I've got a cavity in my chest,
And at least I can't tell which is best,
Isn't it great that it's going so wrong?
Isn't it great that I've waited so long?
I'm amazed, ecstatic and spellbound,
Sitting here, silently, on the ground.

Be happy, now, and please, don't worry,
Hey, don't leave in a hurry,
I'll miss you, I'll miss you, I begin to shout,
But you leave me alone and I'm left to cry out,
You don't care, and you never really did,
And now I'm trapped in a grid,
I'm stuck here and I can't escape,
With a brave face, I pull on the cape,
Now it's time to spread these wings and fly,
It's time for me to scream this goodbye.
