Heaven And Hell

Eugen Mondbasis

The wind blows through the palm trees in the cool morning light
The ocean is as blue as the skin under your eyes
Tired ghosts fall into their beds
And we wait for the sun with the night in our heads

And I thought you can tell heaven from hell
Tears from laughter, ‘So Long’ from ‘Farewell’
We love to explain the world in a nutshell
But we hardly can tell heaven from hell

In the Great King’s Valley live a handful of souls like you
They would never hurt a fly but they’ve stolen their own lives
They say they can tell heaven from hell
One fell dead from his chair without a farewell

Chorus

Never heard you sing a pirate song
But it’s right on time, so I raise my glass
to the upcoming sunrise and the fading stars
to everyone who sings along and every new day to come

Chorus
