Kent - Din Enda Vän Lyrics Translation (Your Only Friend)

(View Original Swedish Lyrics)
Album: Tigerdrottningen
Lyrics: Joakim Berg
Music: Joakim Berg


In your sad green eyes
Was a longing that can kill anyone

We were born by a dancefloor
Our idea of luxury was almost ritual

We came from socialist cities
(Beyond boundaries that all others have)
Where all the nose blood that we spilled
(Became boundaries that one must draw)
We blamed our childhood
(Licked ziplock bags like on film)
Our horny eyes did well on picture
(Run run for your life)

If we get away I will fall on my knees before God
(Run run for your life)
You hold me like no other
In a world that is hopeless and sick
(Run run for your life)

All the good, all the evil that we are
All the beautiful, the bad we do
We are the same, we are alike, we are one
So let me be your only friend

In a limo white as new snow
(We held court, all we touched turned to gold)
A vulgar version of the Bible's pale horse
(Run run run run)
And your sad green eyes
(Where victory was loss and profit was debt)
Said farewell to weapons
Bonjour tristesse
(Run run for your life)
If we get away I will fall on my knees before God
(Run run for your life)
You hold me like no other
In a world that is hopeless and sick
(Run run for your life)

All the good, all the evil that we are
All the beautiful, the bad we do
We are the same, we are alike, we are one
So let me be your only friend
