lyrics

I´m coming on strong
It´s coming out all wrong,
but at least i´m
trying.
It´s all going south
i´ve put my foot in my mouth
I hate to see you
crying.
I try to be kind
going out of my mind
can´t stand the
lying.
Just give it to me straight
it´s never too late
our love is
dying.

It can be hard to tell
when you are joking
Northern lights are beckoning
siren song evoking.

Since I saw you there
without a single care
my hearts been
yearning.
I´ve been up all night
you gave me such a fright
my stomach´s
turning.

It can be hard to tell
when you are joking
Your eyes emit an amber glow
my soul starts floating.

In hindsight I realise
it all started with a kiss.
It´s so hard to visualise
gazing into the abyss.

I´m coming on strong
It´s coming out all wrong,
but at least i´m
trying.
Just give it to me straight
it´s never too late
our love is
dying.

It can be hard to tell
when you are joking
Life´s like a kaleidoscope
of misunderstandings.
