It's the way you laugh that makes me sick in a strange, different way
It's the way he talks that makes me mad, 'cause I can see he'll stay
It's the way he touches you I hate, that makes me want to fight
It's the way you kiss that makes me cry, 'cause it hurts me deep inside

No, no, no, no. I don’t want to know you no more
No, no, no, no. If you don’t want me
No, no, no, no. I can’t stand you with another
No, no, no, no. Get away from me

Girl, I can never go alone
I can’t go to any other
Girl, I just want to be with you
Not that other lover

Tekst en muziek Oscar Kunst

Waiting for the bus, this girl beside me
She takes one, not my destination
I follow her and I sit down beside her
I look her into her eyes and smile

I ask her:
Are you the girl that I fall in love with?
Are you the girl I’m thinking of?
Do you love me, or can you tell me
where to put my love?

Strolling downtown, behind the girl before me
She gets in and out shops, so I wait a while
When she seems done, I walk up to her
I look her into her eyes and smile

Sitting at the bar, drink my wallet empty,
a lovely smile, is sitting at the other side
I can’t walk so I wobble up to her
I look her into her eyes and smile

Your hair, I don’t care if it’s blond, black, brown, red or green
Your hair, I don’t care if it’s curly, straight or in between
Just as long as I can see your hair, next to me
Let you and me be we, as long as we will be

Your eyes, I don’t mind if they’re blue or brown, green or grey
Your eyes, I don’t mind I just want to see they'll stay
Just as long as I can see your eyes, looking for me
Let you and me be we, as long as we will be

Your lips, it doesn't matter if they're painted pink, red purple
Your lips, it doesn't matter if they aren't painted, at all
Just as long as I can see your lips, kissing me
Let you and me be we, as long as we will be

Your hart, I don’t care if it’s beating fast or a little slow
Your hart, I don’t care. As long as it beats and loves me so
Just as long as I can see your hart beating, loving me
Let you and me be we, as long as we will be

Tekst en muziek Oscar Kunst - blazersarrangement Hans Linders

I'm killed like a raindrop on the fire
hissing and spattering but disappear
I came from endless height, stopped here
a smashing stop with endless fear

I'm falling but I won't be seen
I'm blown but I won't be seen
I'm flickering but I won't be seen
It's non intended mean
I'm spattering but I won't be seen
I'm torn in bits but won't be seen
I'm put out but I won't be seen
Another human being

I'm killed like the smoke, in the wind
spead and evaporated in the flare
I travel from then to everywhere
torn in bits of big dispair

I'm killed like the fire, in the rain
steaming and hissing, put out by dash
I burned my place, and left but ash
a wet spot in the wet earth mash

Tekst en muziek Oscar Kunst

That night I didn’t plan for more
So didn’t hope for more
Expected nothing
After that night sure I wanted something
But had no hope yet
Nor did I expect
The day after that I did want us together
Had a little hope
But didn’t really expect a thing
When we met again I wanted it to be
I had my hopes up
Perhaps some expectations

That night was good, it was perfect
You were sweet, you were close and you were fine
That night was good and you were perfect
Yes you were soft, you were warm and you were mine

I had a piece and now I want the whole
I had a taste of you and now I want it all
I had a piece and now I want the whole
I had a taste of you and now I want it all

The moment you asked me: What did you expect?
Yes I wanted it bad and I really had hope
But no, I didn’t expect anything
From you Nina

Tekst en muziek Oscar Kunst

What if I’ve got only four moments left, only four moments left to live
What if I’ve got only three kisses left, only three kisses left to give
What if I’ve got only two songs left, only two songs left to sing
What if I’ve got only one smile left, one smile left to bring

Go on, and live the moment. Make sure it was worth living
Go on, and kiss your kiss and truly share the love
Go on, and sing your song. Throw away the scruples
Go on, and smile your smile and feel that you’re alive

If it turns out I’ve got another moment I won’t regret I lived
If it turns out I’ve got some kisses left I won’t remorse a kiss
If it turns out I’ve got a bunch songs I won’t look back with regret
If it turns out I can forever smile I’ll smile until I’m dead

Tekst en muziek Oscar Kunst

I was dreaming of being in a pleasant surrounding
And it felt so good when someone started stroking my arm
It could almost be her, cause it felt like her, yet it couldn’t be
Cause there never were these feelings from her towards me

Then I woke up and saw it really was her
I was confused, the situation had changed
I was confused, the situation was strange
I asked myself why she stopped being with me

A misunderstanding, a misunderstanding, a misunderstanding, a misunderstanding
This feeling from her for me, a misunderstanding

She was dreaming of you and her in a pleasant surrounding
She was stroking your arm, you did the same to her
She felt so good, being with you should never end
Cause she never felt this good before

Then she woke up, and was in another place
She found herself in my embrace
She started searching where you were
And panicked when she found out it wasn’t you with her

Though I should be glad she said it
Oh, how it made me sad when she said it
Ah, it made me angry cause it should have been me in her dream
Some say love is stronger than passion
I thought our love would last longer than time
I hope her love can comfort the pain
You know it really does hurt that my biggest desire fulfilled
Turned out...

A misunderstanding, a misunderstanding, a misunderstanding, a misunderstanding
This feeling for you, not me, a misunderstanding

The market, grey cobblestone market.
Food stands at daytime, at night their smell in the air.
The fence, I used to chain my bike to,
fencing the town hall, that was always still there.
Canals, quays hidden by houseboats.
The bridge I crossed going to school.
The park, that used to be ramparts,
with trees housing birds since the days horses still pulled.

Back home   Back home   Back home   Back home

That bus stop, I would wait for a ride home.
When home was only bus stops away.
The tower, old, grey tower.
Numerous passed you, of which most passed away.
Narrow streets, might look similar to others,
but endlessly special in my eyes.
When I arrive, I feel alive.
With each departure, a part of me dies.

Picture myself, dream of living in the town I chose to leave behind.
Torture myself. Envy people that I used to know, who don’t even realize that they’re still living

Tekst en muziek Oscar Kunst

Do I exist, if no one cares for me?
Do I exist, if no one shares with me?
Do I exist, if no one distresses me?
Do I exist, if no one caresses me?

Do I exist, if no one neglects me?
Do I exist, if no one corrects me?
Do I exist, if no one teases me?
Do I exist, if no one pleases me?

Talk to me, lie to me
Laugh at me, cry with me
Play with me, stare at me
Stay with me, share with me
And always return

Do I exist, if no one lives with me?
Do I exist, if no one gives to me?
Do I exist, if no one fights with me?
Do I exist, if no one unites with me?

Talk to me, lie to me
Laugh at me, cry with me
Play with me, stare at me
Stay with me, share with me
Hit me, kiss me, be
there for me, care for me
Shout at me, learn from me
Want me and yearn for me
And always return

Tekst en muziek Oscar Kunst

See you, like you, we talk for hours
Like you, trust you, we kiss goodbye

I just want a little bit more
Cause a little bit ain't enough
I just want that little bit more
Your love

Have a drink, dance, have a cigarette
Do whatever you want, I don't mind

I just want a little bit more
Cause a little bit ain't enough
I just want that little bit more
Your love

That's what I want to say
But I won't let you know
To afraid of losing you
So, I'll have to try to show you what I’m feeling without words like please be mine

See me, look at you, our blindness
It seems you cannot read my eyes

I just want a little bit more
Cause a little bit ain't enough
I just want that little bit more
Your love

I just want a little bit more A little bit more
I just want a little bit more

I saw you die
Much too early, much too late
It was your time but not your date
I saw you die
It made me cry
You were in a lousy state
You lost your life, death would wait
It made me cry

Such a sad affair, the best of care
So much to share, but your life was over
In your chair, just sitting there
Not aware that your life was over
No announcement, no alarm
Damage and a lot of harm
And you are better off now that you’re dead

For me there’s no delay, enjoying every day
As long as I can stay, ‘cause my life ain’t over
Hip hooray, live the happy way
Play ska and reggae, ‘till my life is over
No announcement, no alarm
Affection and a lot of charm
And wishing I will die a sudden death

I hope my death won’t be a relief, I hope my death won’t be a relief
I hope my death won’t be a relief, I hope my death won’t be a relief
