A song about letting go. Originally written somewhere in the early 2000s, inspired by the cognition that relations may change irritrievable and that there is nothing wrong about it. Finalized in 2014 in Munich, particularly by adding the "Cemeteries are filling up" part.

 

We see each other sometimes, we’re in contact year by year
How foreign your behavior now and how distant what I hear
When I was sleeping next to you all bad things disappeared
And still I like you, love you but there’s so much that has changed

And we're gonna wash away like salt in water
We're gonna wash away like footprints in the sand
And whatever we have left behind
it won’t come again

The time’s too short to kill and throw it easily away
but sometimes killing helped me to survive my nights and days
Somewhere on the track we found each other and crossed our hearts
We went a while side by side and finally fell apart

And we're gonna wash away like salt in water
We're gonna wash away like teardrops in the sand
And whatever we have left behind
it won’t be the same

Cemeteries are filling up more year by year
And one by one my beloved ones are finding a place here
The images of the past are tipping on your shoulder
But then they dry just like clouds or roll away like boulders

Whatever we started long ago is forever gone and split
It took both of us quite a while to leave our common traps
You can call it emancipation in a love relationship
Or just some rags left to re-sort and see what we can get

And we're gonna wash away like salt in water
We're gonna wash away like footprints in the sand
And whatever we have left behind
it won’t come again

We're gonna wash away like salt in water
We're gonna wash away like teardrops in the sand
And whatever we have left behind
it won’t be the same
