This song was written for, and first performed at Homebound Concert Series Show No.6, streamed in Hamburg, Germany. It deals with a lonely trip to Cuxhaven, on the verge of a breakup.

Dieses Lied wurde für die Homebound Concert Series Show Nr. 6 geschrieben und uraufgeführt, die in Hamburg gestreamt wurde. Es handelt von einer einsamen Reise nach Cuxhaven, kurz vor der Trennung.


I met the old me on the stairs
He somehow knew to meet me there
The crushing silence on the train
We ride again

I couldn’t say but I assume
You would have loved this little room
I let my heart fall to the floor
I need it no more

Rain off the ocean hits the trees
The trail is empty but for me
Some time ago let go the sun
When things came undone

Of course you’re with me everywhere
I run my fingers through your hair
For losing you I’m not to win
Let sadness begin

As now I look back on the end
Sometimes things don’t make any sense
Or well they don’t but then they do
Time passes it’s true

We let the story write itself
And now the box is on the shelf
Though losing touch is nothing new
Back then I had you
