lyrics

5. Outside of Cool v.2

There's a place in the distance
I thought I'd like to tame
and when I saw my reflection
and I spoke its name
it made me sweat
it makes me sweat

When you hear this confession
don't give it no pity
it”s just a song to add
to the tower of plenty
inside there’s a room
with a view of the alley
and when you close the curtains
you hear the heat pipes coughing in your head

let me show you how to love
what it is to be the fool
when you find yourself a spotlight
on the outside of cool

a punch in the face
is sometimes a blessing
highjacked by a moment
you should've been expecting
it makes you sweat
it made me sweat

how the voice of a shadow
has been misunderstood
without religion
the cross is just wood
so shed a little light
on what it means to good
like the soul of a prayer
that finds the heart of your neighbourhood

let me show you how to love
what it is to be the fool
when you're standing in the deadlight
and you're polishing your shoes
let me show you how to love
what it is to be the fool
when you find yourself a spotlight
on the outside of cool

let me show you…

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.
