  • I am sorry this is always how it goes
    The wind blows loudest when you've got your eyes closed
    But I never changed a single colour that I breathe
    So you could have tried to take a closer look at me
    I am tired of punching in the wind
    I am tired of letting it all in
    And I should eat you up and spit you right out
    I should not care but I don't know how

    So I take off my face
    'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong
    And I pull out my tongue
    'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong

    I am sorry for the trouble, I suppose
    My blood runs red but my body feels so cold
    I guess I could swim for days in the salty sea
    But in the end the waves will discolour me

    So I take off my face
    'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong
    And I pull out my tongue
    'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong

    And I cough up my lungs
    'Cause they remind me how it all went wrong
    But I leave in my heart
    'Cause I don't want to stay in the dark

    So I take off my face
    'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong
    And I pull out my tongue
    'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong

    And I cough up my lungs
    'Cause they remind me how it all went wrong
    But I leave in my heart
    'Cause I don't want to stay in the dark Writer/s: NANNA BRYNDIS HILMARSDOTTIR, RAGNAR THORHALLSSON
