lyrics

8. Old Time Cinema Newsreel

I know that face on the movie screen
I should have said "please excuse me,
cause I'm about to be obscene.
That face stole my days.
That face steals my dreams."

Now I'm yelling in Japanese
yelling at a movie screen
it's a temporary cure
you lean in and whisper
"darling please,
let it go, let it go"

the usher asks me to leave
you take my hand and guide me past
all those eyes that look like rain
beating on a blade of grass.

and now the moon's perched up in the sky
I don't know how, but I do know why
you pull my head close to your face
and I melt, and I break

you lean in and whisper
"darling please,
let it go, let it go”

about

Kliffs Berlin, Germany

Kliffs write recycled tone poems for the perpetually bemused, and pop songs for shy dancers. They channel the quiet of early morning sun rays tickling cloud banks and mix it up with songs better suited to late-night inner city bicycle rides.
