lyrics

PART-TIME PARATROOPER

She said, ’When you’re gone, I’ll cry every evening.’
(Come on baby what about you?)
I said I’ll return because of your smile (your smile)
(C’mon baby what can I do?)
She said if you fly I will be writhing in fantasy
(C’mon baby what should I do?)
I said I’ll return because of your smile
C’mon baby what about you?

The adrenaline is keeping me stronger for longer it’s running through m y veins
The only way I stay alive is by keeping this picture of you.
She said that you need me to feel and you feel me to see me
(C’mon baby tragedy you)
The only way I’ll stay alive is by keeping this picture of you

I asked what’s to blame; You need me to see me to seethe at me
(C’mon baby what can I do?)
I know all your names I’ve seen them grow
(C’mon baby what can I do?)
And over the years you know that you dream to be with me
(C’mon baby what should I do?)
I know all the names because I gave them to you… (to you, to you)


The adrenaline is keeping me stronger for longer it’s running through my veins
The only way I stay alive is by keeping this picture of you.
She said how you dream you know you’ll be near me; (if) you need me!
(C’mon baby what should I do?)

The only way I’ll stay alive is by keeping this picture of you
The only way I’ll stay alive is by keeping this picture of you (.ummm um umm)
The only way I’ll stay alive is by keeping this picture of you
The only way I’ll stay alive is by keeping this picture of you (.ummm um umm)

Acapella break down

about

Ravensong Luxembourg

Ravensong is an eclectic, one man, solo project, with a focus on alt rock and rhythm. I have written songs for years and love the art and craft of it. I am interested in dynamics and crescendo and a touch of rule breaking in structure and approach. Hypnotic grooves and thoughtful lyrics that are often ironic and layered finish of the sonic scapes I try and create on a bed of rock!!- Enjoy! :) ... more
