Kent - Du är ånga Lyrics Translation (You Are Steam)

(View Original Swedish Lyrics)
Album: Du Och Jag Döden
Lyrics: Joakim Berg
Music: Joakim Berg


You say "When we were little what drugs did you take then?"
When we were little we hit sap, bark and steel
And the brain got soft from Lutheran anxiety before God
And then I got sick and became the shadow you see now

But when the night was bright
In our sixties house
We were far, far, far away from here
In our dream of escaping to something new

I am born in a time when the dust had just settled
A meaningless time, exactly one thousandth of a second too late
Surely there lives a scream somewhere inside your calm quiet life
A wild fantasy being drowned in box-wine nostalgia

But when the night is bright
In your seventies house
And you are steam, trace of a cloud
In a dream of escaping to something new
And you are holding so tight and when the longing gets hard
Then I am yours, yours, yours to take with
To take out, to take in to something new

When the night is bright
In our eighties house
Then we are far, far, far away from here
In our dream about escaping to something new
And we hold too tight, but when this dream is ours
And you are mine, mine, mine to take with
To take out to a search for the time that escaped
