Track Name: People Tell Me
People tell me: Hey man
Don´t take life so seriously
it´s just a game man
But I can´t change the way I feel
the void you left is all too real

My best friend told me: Common!
There´s plenty more fish in the sea
You´ll find someone
But I don´t like that fish analogy
they stink and have no clue that tears are also salty

My sister told me: Cheer up
she gave me comfort over a teacup
But I´m not able to sleep or relax
and herbal chai infusion just won´t bring you back.

The doctor told me: Get a grip
There´s no prescription for acting like a hollywood movie clip
It reminded me of a film we saw
With Johnny Depp or was it Jude law?

Life without you is not what I had planned
maybe I have to redifne myself
Life without you is trivial and bland
maybe I´d be better off – better off

My guitar told me: F, C and E minor
I think this has to be some sort of sign or
maybe I´ve just stayed awake too long
now I´m pushing rec and I´m emailing you this song

Gmail told me: attachment limit exceeded
this is probably the last thing I needed
Now I have to go to your new place
ring the bell and sing it to you and your girlfriend´s face

Your girlfriend told me to eat shit
I replied that I don´t share her dietary habits
and that´s the last thing I remember for hours
until I woke up with the nurse bringing your flowers.

Life without you is not what I had planned
maybe I have to redifne myself
Life without you is trivial and bland
maybe I´d be better off – better off

My visitors tell me: Hey man
Don´t take life so seriously
it´s just a game man
But I can´t change the way I feel
my broken nose is all too real.
