Shiny Boxes

Lyrics: Mimi Schell
Music: Mimi Schell, Ulrich Rode

V1
My words for you come with shiny boxes
Wrapped up and tied up with satin ribbons
But my careful touch
Lately don’t translate

V2
There is a battle inside you I know
I’ve juggled your troubled weights as if they were feathers
Look, I’m trying hard
But never good enough

Br 1
Why don’t you come here
These moments of fear
Are initial phases

CH 1
Aren’t we free
Travelling experience realms
Our river of dreams
Is near

If we knew what’s to come
The best would remain undone

V3
Like sleeping beauties we’ve basked quite safely
Floating among wreckage and the package we trawl
We’ve been slumbering
Burning in the sun

V4
Our love’s the tale that we both created
And now that we’ve made our wish
get chilled to the bone
Have we unlearned to trust
Or why... running scared?

BR 2
Aren’t we pilgrims
Still curious children and
Isn’t what we’re seeking
Just here

CH 2
Aren’t we free
Travelling experience realms
Aren’t we free
Travelling experience realms
Our river of dreams
Is near

If we knew what’s to come
The best would remain undone
Take my hand, come with me
Our river flows on
