Tell Me A Story

 

Tell me a story

With a quick fine end

Before the hourglass

Has run out of all its sand

Yes you can lead me

To all forgotten fields

Where children once came

And never could stay the same

 

Oh…

How will it end

Ooh…

Down falls the sand

 

Tell me a story

About us yesterday

In the good old times

My mates and I used to play

My friends all gone now

Time moved on somewhere else

I’m still in neverland

Needing a helping hand

 

Oh…

How will it end

Ooh…

Down falls the sand

Slowly bottom up

 

Tell me a story

In which all hope is lost

Relentless is faith

Always expect the worst

Taking things easy

Never bother a lot

Can’t be disappointed

When you’re swimming in mud

 

Oh…

 

Tell me a story

Ooh make me smile

For a while

Ooohooooooh…

 

Tell me a story

Whereby the back of my heart

Will crumble my darling

I would love to see blood

It is so easy

Shying away from a fall

Living my lie

No chance to laugh or cry

 

Singing oh…

How will it end

Ooh…

Down falls the sand

Singing oh…

How will it end

Singing Down down down

Down down down down down

Singing ouwww YEAH

Singing YEAAAAAAHEEAAAHHH
