lyrics

2. Sadness

In the heart of the afternoon
I watched your display
a work of beauty came out in the lines on your face
it could have been the wine
or simply just the way
you held your words like dynamite
but turned them into a bouquet

everything is temporary, everything is temporary

now a party's on next door
I go and join the noise
I move my body like a bamboo in the breeze
the night slips away
the birds come out to sing
I fall into my bed as if the Caribbean sea had kidnapped me

everything is temporary, everything is temporary

sadness is only, sadness is only
a phone call away

I see you at the door
I run to let you in
we put our constellation into orbit on the kitchen floor
cloud nine plus one
with complimentary champagne
it's the softest fair-trade local patch of grass on a snowy day

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.
