Kissing you still tastes like my stale lies
I‘ve been living somebody else‘s life
You were looking for a wife you won’t find in me
waiting for the cotton candy skies you used to see
And I can‘t wash away the constant glue
that keeps me clinging onto you
I can‘t wipe away the sugar stains
a cotton candy dream is what remains
of me, you and your fever visions
and „most girls“ are to you just villains on a mission
but men are just big boys with money
cotton candy sweet is the only way you want me
but my words are bitter, i’m fighting dirty
you pretend to care but all you do is hurt me
name me one thing that we both share
to you I‘m just a doll with cotton candy hair
you think we‘re meant to be, releasing all the doves
your treats are spoilt and shallow, they fit you like a glove
your cotton candy love is melting from my lips
you tucked me in too softly, my stomach’s feeling sick
our bond is wishful thinking, you know we’re worlds apart
you’ve been holding on in vain to a cotton candy heart
and they still say that we‘re so sweet
we never fight cause we never speak
I‘m left here feeling incomplete
with caries spreading in my mouth
rotting teeth begging me to leave you,
my tongue won‘t get it out
because my brain is still riding its sugar high
and I‘m just living a cotton candy lie
I can‘t wash away the constant glue
that keeps me clinging onto you
can‘t wipe away the sugar stains
a cotton candy dream is what remains
  thoughts about loveless love

i've almost forgotten about this account and this is the only "artsy" thing i've done in years.

it's pretty personal, about stuff i've experienced in the past (still experiencing, to be honest, but it's a tricky situation). 

i hope that'll show you that we're still alive, a couple years older, a lot more uncreative, too busy to live actually, but still glad for every single watcher, fave and comment. we're sorry we haven't been posting anything in a long time and im not promising that there'll be anything new soon (or that there'll be anything coming up in general again), but i wanted to post this one on here because i'm hoping that i'll be able to turn this into a song one day and maybe do a video for it, i don't know. i liked it a lot myself and i hope you'll like it too. 

- Lena

I think this would have been the result of a collaboration between Lana Del Rey and Lou Reed.

Great Work!

Zu aller erst Mal: Holy Fuck, ich hätte nicht gedacht, dass nochmal was neues von einer von euch hier kommen wird :D - von daher schonmal :thumbsup:

Erinnert mich irgendwie an die Texte von "Curl up and Die" oder "Glassjaw" und die machen richtig gute Texte, wenn du mich fragst - deiner gefällt mir auf jeden Fall, gute Wortwahl. :)

Ich erhoffe mir jetzt mal nichts zwecks weiteren Uploads hier, aber wenn was kommt, freue ich mich bestimmt. :)

Ich finde, es ging nichts an Kreativität verloren (zumindest nach dem Text zu urteilen, vilt merkt man auch einfach, dass er dir wichtig ist oder so.)

Das als Lied + Musikvideo wäre auf jeden Fall cool - hoffentlich klappts. :D

P.S.: Alles gute für dich und deine Zukunft. :hug: - Wenn du mal jemanden zum schreiben brauchst oder dir einfach langweilig ist, darfst du mir gerne entweder hier oder in Fb schreiben. Just saying. ;)
