lied zum sonntag: mother of pearl


Well I've been up all night (again?)
Party-time wasting is too much fun

Then I step back thinking
Of life's inner meaning
And my latest fling

It's the same old story
All love and glory
It's a pantomime

If you're looking for love
In a looking glass world
It's pretty hard to find

Oh mother of pearl
I wouldn't trade you
For another girl

Divine intervention
Always my intention
So I take my time

I've been looking for something
I've allways wanted
But was never mine

But now I've seen that something
just out of reach glowing
Very holy grail

Oh mother of pearl
Lustrous lady
Of a sacred world

Thus: even Zara Thustra
Another-time-loser
Could believe in you

With every goddess a let down
Every idol a bring down
It gets you down

But the search for perfection
Your own predilection
Goes on and on and on and on

Canadian Club love
A place in the Country
Everyone's ideal

But you are my favorita
And a place in your heart, dear
Makes me feel more real

Oh mother of pearl
I wouldn't change you
For the whole world

You're highbrow, holy
With lots of soul
Melancholy shimmering

Serpentine sleekness
Was always my weakness
Like a simple tune

But no dilettante
Filigree fancy
Beats the plastic you

Career girl cover
Exposed and another
Slips right into-view

Oh looking for love
In a looking glass world
Is pretty hard for you

Few throwaway kisses
The boomerang misses
Spin round and round

Fall on featherbed quilted
Faced with silk
Softly stuffed eider down

Take refuge in pleasure
Just give me your future
We'll forget your past

Oh mother of pearl
Submarine lover
In a shrinking world

Oh lonely dreamer
Your choker provokes
A picture cameo

Oh mother of pearl
So so semi-precious
In your detached world

Oh mother of pearl
I wouldn't trade you
For another girl
