  • Living in a house
    Near the black forest
    Without any clocks
    She's begun
    To listen to the walls
    Her neighbors have clocks
    Not one but 20 clocks apiece

    Near the black, black forest
    Near the black, black forest
    Near the black, black forest
    Near the black, black forest

    Listen to the walls
    Wind your watch
    Poor love poor love
    Have they caught you?
    By the pendulum
    Have they got you stopped?
    Have you already gathered now
    Living near the black forest
    She gets by on cups of borrowed time

    Near the black, black forest
    Near the black, black forest
    Near the black, black forest
    Near the black, black forest Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
