lyrics

a lullaby to an unborn child, a love song / maja oojnik, 2014

read both two lines in each verse simultaneously:

my sweet little baby / possibly maybe / in search of a smile / wait for me
delete, forget / just a dream too weak / the past you fear

staring at a vast darkness / nursing my old fear / no silence is silent
at nights when all falls asleep the world becomes clear

big bird shadow on the wall / your lights go out / and the snow starts to fall
the time is high and music is dead / on hot summer days / snow falls

(and) every night i’m repeating it all;
replacing the forgotten with the selfinvented:
my heart beats so loud, i can’t even hear my voice,
i’m thinking: „perhaps i will lose my heart in this“
and then i get lost in you.
while you draw silently impromptu maps on my hungry skin,
i undress my distance
beneath layers of fear, naked and liquid
the borders of our bodies become unclear
and we exchange breathless kisses into sleep.
