Kent - Den Vänstra Stranden Lyrics Translation (The Left Shore)

(View Original Swedish Lyrics)
Album: Då Som Nu För Alltid
Lyrics: Joakim Berg
Music: Joakim Berg


I take the long way home
Over the bridges one morning on Västerleden
They have built parking over the apple orchard
Where we performed in films

I take the long way home
The gravel crunches, dams in the spring sun
Tussilago like gold by the ditch's edge
"You said that you never want to see me again
And I saw it coming"
Here it comes again

Like a rain over warm water
Like tears and blood in the sand
Like a murderer through the night
Come and meet me on the left shore
A white rose in your hand

Now there is no easy way back
But I try anyway to text you one last time
Just want to say that I have woken now
That I think that maybe we can start over anew

Like a rain over warm water
Like tears and blood in the sand
Like a murderer through the night
Come and meet me on the left shore
A white rose in your hand

Even if it's been 24 years since last time, I can still
Remember every detail, your quiet little one-room apartment there in the rain
And "In Liverpool" on repeat
Though we live in different continents now, 10 million kilometres
From each other, so I remember those days as the
best, they slid into each other and disappeared

Like a rain over warm water
(can you say when we disappeared)
Like tears and blood in the sand
(between my fingers like sand)
Like a murderer through the night
(can you say when we disappeared)
Come and meet me on the left shore
A white rose in your hand
