Why should I trust my memories
My souvenirs have disappeared
Behind the dusty road

Time that has washed my dirty skin
Has left no trace of my joys and fears
No Trace of my joys and fears

I see her face fading in the smoke of the fire
And all that’s left is a mid-winter dream

I know inside me there once was a time
When folded by her side I felt naked and blind
When the questions that I raised didn’t find the an answer
The silence revealed what I was looking for

I don’t wanna live on my memory
All I can trust is my homing instinct

Do you remember your mistakes
And all the times you hurt yourself
Doesn’t it feel like in a dream
A collection of obsolete scenes
A wall behind the wall painted in black

Yet I can feel the scratches all over my body
And I can hear this quiet melody

I know inside me I once was a child
When too weak and too upset I received the care
Of a dedicated mother who made me feel safe
When the darkness stepped in my imagination

And for each souvenir that I loose, it’s part of me that dies..
