A Room on the Edge of Forever

a room on the edge of forever

music: arno menses & markus steffen
lyrics: markus steffen

behind a neon winter door
shines a quiet light of dust
a capsule of time that‘s guarded by
lions and birds and ghosts

they shield the breath
won’t forget you
they keep the dreams
won’t let go now

guard my torn back
walls are voiceless
will they forget?
will they forget?
and clouds lie low on the sea

forgetting underneath the waves
a lead that just drips and that sinks
into a timeless memory
of salt and of olden stones

and the runes lie
on the pale stones
like silent signs
that can not speak

this is the life
and what remained
this is the life
and what remained
those clouds lie heavy on me

and ev’rything just fell apart
and all the birds fell from the sky
when love was left in this cold, unsheltered place

the more you love the more you lose
the gentle sound of a sunday rain
when all was lost in this old, unsheltered place

and ev’rything just fell apart
and all the birds fell from the sky
when love was left in this cold, unsheltered place

the more you love the more you lose
the gentle sound of a sunday rain
you left me in this dark, unsheltered place

the morning grapes by the sea
the crystal wind that cools the wine
the empty glass and the grey eternal rain…
