lyrics

Every wall in my house
Is just a bleak polaroid.
The mirrors are crafted
Of black and white celluloid.

The breeze waves the curtains
Made of laughter and perfume.
My tired floor's been keeping
All the secrets for me to exhume.

The windows of my house
Are my father's eyes.
The grass was greener, but now
It's the world that I don't recognize.

The lamps in my old house
Are my sweet memories.
I'll put one in my bag
To light the way through centuries.

I leave the key, I slam the door,
My friend, I'm coming back no more.
I cannot stay, tears in my eyes,
I step towards my new sunrise.

I take a breath, the dawn is near.
My destiny lies away from here.
So this is how my childhood dies,
I disappear into my new sunrise.
