about

A song about getting old, and about tattoos.

lyrics

Woke up one morning in an unknown bedroom
It felt strangely familiar, like I've been there before
The clock on the night table read half past noon
My back burnt, my head hurt, my whole body felt sore

Whose voice is it I hear calling my name?
Who are these people staring at me on the wall?
I don't have a clue if I'm supposed to know them
Everything's blurry I don't remember at all

I am now facing an old wrinkled man, his life has come and passed and his skin's there to show
That even though his glory days might be far behind, there's no regrets to have and no will to let go

On my chest is an oak tree with a heart carved on it
Where two lovers' names are still there decades later
On a branch is written august the 5th
For the day you took me for worst or better

On an another I can read a boy's name and a date
A reminder of the best gift you ever gave me
On my hand a wind rose so that I won't forget
I need to keep moving if I want to stay free

This one stands for my belief in animal rights
And this is for the ones who aren't here anymore
This one was never anything but a pretty sight
All constant marks of what I have always lived for

Now all that is left is the ink on my skin
And that bottle of whisky I probably drank
I'm not sure who I am, I'm not sure where I've been
Try as I might I am drawing a blank
