1. Off Your Track

From the recording The Fine Chairs

drums by Sandy Hannekum



Every once in a while
Sitting here on the isle
The last resort of undecidedness.
Surrounded by what went wrong
Scenes I turned into songs
Not intended to be sung again.

So many chances went by
Without a second try.

One step forward
But often two steps back
One step closer
But always off your track
No turning back
To start it once again.

Sometimes it’s hard to find
The right words, the right time
Slowly lifting the cloak of disguise
Again I had to find out
With my head in the clouds
The train you’re on is not the one I ride.

It feels like deja vu
Still the same no matter what I do.

One step forward…

I would make a detour
But distance leaves me unsure.

One step forward…
