Hi, und willkommen!
(Words and music by IVO)
There once was a young boy who's dreams were all clear
When he played his guitar the stars were so near
He wanted to travel, to see all the countries
And nothing could stop him, he'd cross all the boundaries
And so he did travel for many a year
And life was so nice - he had nothing to fear
'Cause he always had friends, drinks and girls all around him
And a tap on the shoulder:"Hey, man, you'really something..."
But then one day he looked in the mirror
And he saw a face that was slightly familiar
But it was so old and the eyes were half open
With the look of the drunks he had pitied so often
And now in his dreams there are glasses of beer
But then when he wakes up they all disappear
And he walks all alone, gets another day older
He walks and he waits for the tap on the shoulder
So please, don't you wake him, he's quietly sleeping
And the world that he dreams of is not the one that he lives in
Please, let him play his songs long forgotten
And forget for a while his life that's gone rotten...
