Deaf Havana – Cassiopeia Lyrics

DEAF HAVANACassiopeia Lyrics
I blacked out ’til the morning broke, I was swallowing glass
And inhaling smoke, I lost my mind in a haze of cobbled streets
And broken windows. I managed to get away, for a minute or two, to catch my breath,
Just long enough to catch sight of a man with a broken nose
And a bandaged leg, sleeping silently in a photo booth on the
Road where I caught a cab, back through the heart of the
Tourist district and into our rundown, rented pad. In the early hours of the morning, I can’t help but let you
In/win. So I met you round the back, away from others, I
Was trying to fight off my brother but I knew, I knew, that you
Didn’t have eyes for me…
I’ve got a fire and it burns in me, it takes me back to the very
Day I was with you there. I’ve got a fire and it burns in me, I
Knew back then, it was clear to see that I was running scared. I was there talking to you about some of the shit they’d put
You through, and I knew that this could be my chance to get
You closer. But then I bought a beer from a nice
Bar lady with the kindest eyes that I’d ever seen, she said
“take a water too honey, it’s warm outside, we don’t want you
Dying now, do we… ?”
Oh, Berlin, my love, I’ve got you underneath my skin. I met a strange girl from Brazil, she made me laugh for an hour
Or two and it took me back to the festival where I was sure
That I was gonna go (die).
