Kent - Järnspöken Lyrics Translation (Iron Ghosts)

Album: Du Och Jag Döden
Lyrics: Joakim Berg
Music: Joakim Berg


They burnt down Grönan and the school stands there alone now
Bike-racks still stand empty, even though the breaks are over
They cut down chestnut-trees in the avenue in front of the school yard
I move quietly, don’t belong here, I am the ghost

I don’t know why, but maybe that’s why I remember it so well
Your big eyes, your brown hands, your sharp knees

Was it you I saw, like a shadow from dreams
Was it you I saw, you whom I swore not to forget

They dig in the park and the frost in the ground, becomes a defense
At the corner of the church where the railroad goes, they have blocked off

Something’s lying in the grass, with frosty clothes, so still and white
The blue lights flash, imagine what you can do with a small knife

I don’t know why but I always return here
I guess it was something we did, something we said here that changed my life

Was it you I saw, like a shadow from my dreams
Was it you I saw, you whom I swore not to forget
Was it you I saw, like a ghost from my dead dreams
Was it you I saw
Have I finally managed to forget?
