Kent - Romeo återvänder Ensam Lyrics Translation (Romeo Returns Alone)

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


An icy wind goes over the water an echo from the world of the dead
A greeting from a jealous mocking sea
And the winter tears the pier’s shack, tears lanterns from a celebrated July
From the ferris wheel’s skeleton of wood and stone

(I want you, you are mine, you are only mine)
(I want you, I am yours, I am only yours)
In the city rules constant low season
The restaurants are empty all year around

And on bars the wrecks cling to
We mourn a lost cargo
And the snow is helping the debris to shore
Black twigs block the white house
Haven’t been here since all was yours
A for sale sign covered in snow and sand

On the porch the wind chime sings your song
Empty windows are hitting all night long
And old memories are like the flakes that whirl
Against a sky of iron and poison and lead

Like a Romeo in jeans on your balcony
I’m the shadow by your screen door once more
Your dress is like rags in my hand
And I leave no trail even in the sand...
