A Rainy Quarrel

I know that something went wrong yesterday night
And you urged me to get out of your sight,
I almost obeyed as your eyes promised no good –
One more word from me – and you were ready to shoot…

But ’cause it’s likely to rain
Today
Again
I wish I could just remain
Today
Again
By your side
And despite
Your unbreakable pride
You could let me stay
Today
Again

Girls are like that – their green eyes promise no good,
But in a moment or two there is loads of food
And they hope cooking will win our hearts back again,
And they are so damn right especially when there is such rain.

Because it’s likely to rain
Today
Again
I wish I could just remain
Today
Again
By your side
And despite
Your unbreakable pride
You could let me stay
Today
Again

Scarlet and Black

You never were the one to understand my pain,
To shield me when I was standing out in the rain.
I was too proud to ask, I was too proud to call,
‘Cause who are you to me, after all?

Sending scarlet fire in the black sky…
But the stars I want to burn are too high.
Scarlet love, black remorse – all together now,
Oh how I wish I could fix it all – just tell me, how?

I never dared to throw my arms around your neck,
But when you were leaving, I kept on looking back.
You never realised you loved me deep inside,
But kept a thought of me every night…

I know there’s still a hope lying on dusty street,
Lost there by other fools who’re just like you and me.
Look down – I know it is lying right at your feet,
Take it – and maybe you’ll admit I’m all you need.

It was long ago I realised you were mine
And the days without you did not feel fine,
Do confess now that you’ve loved me all along,
So that we can put a happy ending to this song.

Sending scarlet fire in the black sky,
Feeling almost as if I was ready to fly,
Black remorse over now, scarlet love to bloom
Hopefully, as far as calling you my bridegroom…
