STOCKHOLM

 

This ain't my home cause I see water
and boats are floating with the breeze
I've been thinking of my darlings, my home
and all thats in between

And yes, the beauties overwhelming
and the snow is yet to fall
even though the stars are northern
I'm not far away at all

By the water I was drowning
my hope was sinking in Stockholm
as the winters taking over me
I'd trade anything for home

I noticed ghosts upon the water
a bitter glow upon their lips
and they spoke just like the locals
saying “what persuaded you to this”

And from time to time I've wondered
I've dreamt of Mexico to Rome
If I could trick my mind into believing
I'm headed home

By the water I was drowning
my hope was sinking in Stockholm
as the winters taking over me
I'd trade anything for home

Maybe I could sail my ship to you
through waves up to the sky
If I don't make it tell my darlings
that I miss them
and I love them
and I tried

By the water I was drowning
my hope was sinking in Stockholm
as the winters taking over me
I'd trade anything for home
