this is dedicated to my son when he was two.
back then we used to spend eight days a week out on the playgrounds and survived many adventures. The poor cardboard sailor was not as lucky as we were. may his soul rest in peace in cardboard heaven.


cardboard sailor
(w+m: mats regen / our blanket skies)

verse 1
we like the sky when it's juggling with clouds
we like the birds when they're flying in circles
we like the wind and the color it gives to our cheeks
it makes a comfortable breeze for your cardboard sailor

verse 2
you notice every plane in the air
and like to watch their trails from the swing set
we use to swing so hard 'til we fall asleep
while your boat‘s on the stream with your cardboard sailor

we embrace the trees
we collect red leaves
we unfold our wings
this is all
this is all

when the sky falls down
and overflows our town
we'll be safe and sound
we'll gonna rest here 'til we're found
and then we stroll back home

verse 3
you wave goodbye to the snake and the mole
when walking home we play tag on the main street
we‘ll come too late ´cause it took us all day to run free
we digged a grave on the street for your cardboard sailor
