Kent - Ismael Lyrics Translation

Album: En Plats i Solen
Lyrics: Joakim Berg
Music: Joakim Berg / Martin Sköld


I was born in a snowstorm
I guess it was cold
There are no witnesses from that day

And I grew up fast
From my childhood that was all
I was born already beaten

There was nowhere to run
You didn't dare walk
You ran for cover, hiding yourself

There is nothing here that can make you understand
Let the past be forgotten

I lied, broke promises, it is a built-in mistake
You cannot put honour that doesn't exist at stake

I see a future where
I could be something big
So blow a kiss and fill my quota
Then you think out loud
And scream silently
And holding your breath through the monologue
That was written for your inner voice
You sounded exactly like Ismael
Do you remember Ismael
I am your Ismael

You said "I long for 1997"
I said "If you want to give up, it's your choice"

I was born in a hospital
Where people mostly came to die
Who cares about your 90's

It took 25 years of misunderstanding
It took 25 years to even come this far

I see a future where
I could be something big
So blow a kiss and fill my quota
Then you think silently and scream out loud
Memorizing the whole damn monologue
That was written for your inner voice
You sounded exactly like Ismael
Do you remember Ismael
I am your Ismael
