The Question is Me

CD:All lyrics

Date: 1994

ⓒIneke van Doorn

Just Like Hell Lonely eyes are stabbing me
penetrating looks
yesterday, everything seemed so normal
just like hell
everything seemed just, just like hell

My God
does he see me
misery all around
enough is enough, you know
One hell would be fine

I was happy, but very poor
then the flood came by
lost my house, lost my child
lost my land
I wish I knew the perfect answer
How to survive

My God
does he see me
misery all around
enough is enough, you know
One hell would be fine

Water covers up my world
It is like the far away sea
The far away sea comes by to say 'hello'
But should a good friend not only take
but also give a lot to me
Not only misery

My God
does he see me
misery all around
enough is enough you know
One hell would be fine

Conjure mmmmm, I'm humming my way
traveling words
which one will stay
simple rhymes appear and go
a certain feeling that I know

mmmmm, got dizzy ideas
mumbling tongues
the alphabet speakes
little figures on my sheet
a certain feeling that I need

Lines come closer
Fade away
Tonight poems arrive

To say 'a rose is a flower which hurries to stay'
raises itís worth with a word

a poet as magician for the soul
a rose that ever blooms

I Wonder Try to find your name
Don't know what you are
how to call you
Every time we meet
unfamiliar thoughts start to puzzle me
wondering if you are just
a little piece
inside me

Would you grow and stay
never would I know
where you came from
are you old and grey
from an unknown place
farabove the sky
wondering
if you are just
a little piece inside me

Letters Thoughts, vibrating memories
Open doors, I hear a voice, whispering words to me
Now, reflecting colors, a brightning sky
a sudden joy and there, a sudden laugh,
some love from far away

Can you escape and come to me
only for one day
Come to me, even for one day

Now, I'm looking for an answer
expecting words you never wrote and wouldn't write to me
I'll wait, maybe a week, a month, a year
I see an image of a foolish dream
the image of a lie

Can you escape and come to me
only for one day
Come to me, even for one day

Thornblues Singin' about blues
makes me think of what I haven't got
two horses and a kangaroo
nor a house like a castle
a ship of my own
a talking elephant

But did you ever meet him
he's a man riding a horse
he'll make all my dreams come true

Singin' about blues
makes me think of what I had to lose
a very special love affair
He was warm, he was tender
had a life so complete
I would get no air

Why do we hurt ourselves
What are we looking for

Isn't it easy to make yourself blue
when you put on a crown of thorns
hundreds of needles will burst your dreams inside

Singin' about blues
makes me think of who I really am
a person without a special sign

no special look, no stunning figure
no hair to my waist
an almost common face

Did you ever meet him
he's a man riding a horse
he'll make all my dreams come true

Singin' about blues
makes me think of what tomorrow will bring
maybe a man around my door
he must be strong, must be handsome
honest and true
a prince I think will do

Why do we hurt ourselves
What are we looking for

Isn't it easy to make yourself blue
when you put on a crown of thorns
what are you reasons for hiding your dreams inside

Sleeping beauty, you make yourself blue
when you put on a crown of thorns
hundreds of needles will burst your dreams inside

Cobble Girl Sitting at the river
River full of cobblestones
In her eyes you can see what she feels
Little cobblestones in her eyes

She never felt like this before
time had changed her more and more
at her feet little fish swam around and around
little cobblestones

The freckles on her nose
she had counted long before
the ladybirds around her didn't do this anymore
you adjust and forget who you are
like the fish at her feet, swimming around

a blushing face and a look so shy
a whispering voice in the air
wishing it could change
but they told her that life is just like that
and never she would be again a miracle
as innocent as a child could be

Sitting at the river
Thinking of the girl she was
It is hard to believe in your dreams when the world is passing by

Her future had begun
wished her luck and said goodbye
Everything had changed and she didn't notice why
Is it true that an angel can't die
like a river passing by?

a blushing face and a look so shy
a whispering voice in the air
wishing it could change
but they told her that life is just like that
and never she would be again a miracle
as innocent as a child could be

The question is me If I fail to see the answer
should I ask my mind again
If it fails, has no reaction

The question is me
I can't deny it
the question is me
Just one conclusion

If I doubt the right direction
Should I follow someone else
If he fails to show progression

The question is me
I won't deny it
the question is me
Just this conclusion

Am I right or wrong
or am I in the middle of this case
Are the answers lost
or am I looking for illusions ?

If I make a wrong discision
what about my own approach
does it mean a bad conception

The question is me.....

If I'd try to see the reasons
would it help to read a book
Should I fail to get the meaning

The question is me.....

Moonwalk Night is falling down
every move finds its ending
Sounds are left alone
taking rest in the darkness
Wish I could sleep, forgetting life for a moment

I would go
for a walk over the moon
looking at the earth
at my friends sleeping so innocent
Would they know ?

Time slips away
There is no need for a hurry
Words are lying down
nothing counts in the silence
Wish I could dream fulfilling thoughts for a moment

I would go
for a walk over the moon
Looking at the earth
at my friends sleeping so innocent
Would they know ?
