I’ll Be A Virgin, I’ll Be A Mountain

CD/LP, V2 Records 2006

01.Snow White

You dreamed I was your lover
And I lied in your arms
You dreamed of all our children
Playing in the sun

I hope that you’re alright
I hope, I hope that you’re alright

Sleep, my Snow White

02.No More Lies To Reach You

No more lies to reach you
No more lies around
I tried hard to see you
I tried hard to sound

And no more lies around
No more lies to sound
I tried hard to see you
And I tried hard to sound

No more vows to reach you
No more vows around
I tried hard to fool you
And hard to lose the ground

And no more vows around
No more vows to sound
I tried hard to fool you
And hard to lose the ground

No more lies to reach you
No more lies in my head

Will you be mine?

03.Your Stammering Kisses

Vacuous bird, where are you now?
In a room of empty walls?
With your vacant stare
And gloomy thoughts of sorrow?

Virtuous bird, where are you now?
Flown to America?
Oh, but all that I recall

Your stammering kisses is all that I want
Your stammering kisses is all that I need
Your stammering kisses is all that I have
Your stammering kisses is all that I’ll get

In my fevered dreams you’re so nasty but beautiful

So beautiful

Vengeful bird, where are you now?
Did you break your wings in a rage?
Are you flying now
And still it feels like falling?

Verdant bird, where are you now?
Flown to America?
Oh, but all that I recall

04.Velvet Son

I came by to jingle in your armoury
As you fought all the sounds in me
At the time of escapades up in the mountains
The sound of the bells embraced me

I came by to tinkle in your garden
As you taught all the kids to shoot
At the time of escapades down in the valley
You fired a velvet gun

My storehouse eyes, my Arabian bells
My warehouse legs, my Arabian chimes
Should I leave them by your gun?
Or, long-faced Lady, should I run?

Lady, should I run?

I came by to close your open window
And to dive in your open sea
At the time of escapades out in the desert
You cradled our velvet son

05.Silly Lily, Funny Bunny

I’m climbing up the walls of your
Head over heels built up house
I scream and I lean in vain tonight
Remember the words that I said

I keep on knocking at your door with my head
As you’re silly, Lily
I keep on knocking at your door with my head
As you’re funny, bunny

I’m craving for your leftover kiss
Tasting like drops of cold rain
I’ll drink and I’ll drown and ruin the whole world
So think of the words that I said

06.I’ll Be A Virgin, I’ll Be A Mountain

My thoughts are flowing
My love is growing
My dreams have ended
And my soul is stranded

Now that it’s over

I’ll leave my island
I’ll swim to you
I’ll leave my prison
To swim to you

I’ll be a virgin
When I reach you
I’ll be a mountain
When I touch you

07.Wilted Flower

A Magic bullet against your drought
Were sumptuous rainfalls
Dreary whispering of how you love
Sun-baked objects

It’s a little strange how you walk
And I still hear your withered talk

I am blooming
I am blooming
Without you

You’ve lost your tears in a vale of dust
You’re a wilted flower
How could I now miss your face
As I’m watered in a shower?

It’s a little strange how you walk
And I still hear your withered talking

08.Messed-up Girl

Where have you been, my messed-up girl?
Staying up all night and losing our pearl?
Why are you lying?
Why are you sighing, my love?

There’s this light in your eyes
Your cheeks are all red
It’s hard for you to hide that you betrayed me in his bed
But still you don’t leave me
Still you don’t leave, oh my love

What keeps you from running into his arms?
What keeps you from falling prey to his charms?
Is it your love?
Oh, do you still love me, my dear?

Well, I can’t be your sun
But I’ll be your moon
Brightening your night, but fading too soon
Brightening your path with my borrowed light, oh my love

You’re my pale-faced princess
Silver lining
Noble sweetness
Always shining
How can you do this?
Oh, how can you do this to me?

So, where have you been, my messed-up girl?
Staying up all night and losing our pearl?
Why are you lying?
Why are you sighing, my love?

Oh, my love

09.The Saviour

They will steal my crown
And ruin my kingdom
Force me to break down
Take my pride

Deprive me of grace
Plunder my homeland
Leave me down on the ground

They will raid my blood
And abduct my brothers
Pilfer my treasures
Waste my fields

That’s what I expect
That’s what I deserve
For redeeming all mournful souls
With my splendour

I’ll shine until I fall, my father
I’ll shine until I fall
I’ll shine until I fall, my father
I’ll shine until I fall

And there’s nothing in the world
There’s nothing in the world to save my life

10.You Came To Me When I Was Born

You came to me when I was bleeding
You came to me when I was torn
You came to me when I was strung out
You came to me when I was born

You came to me when I was searching
You came to me when I was mad
You came to me when I was lying
You came to me when I was sad

You came to me when I was worn-out
You came to me when I was passed
You came to me when I was longing
You came to me when I was lost

You came to me when I was crazy
You came to me when I was caught
You came to me when I was crying
You came to me when I was fought

11.Feel Like Children

The day is done
My heart is quiet
No tomorrow
No more sorrow
This winter’s night
Heals my wounds
Stops my everlasting sighs

You’re not mine
But I am yours
Together we could
Together we could
Fall asleep
And drift away
Cry in peace
Feel like children

So sleep, my Snow White

12.Grey

I lose my daydreams
I lose my colours
I lose my longing
I find myself
