Well, this song is the result of a Facebook chat with a friend of mine who always appeared happy and satisfied although her boyfriend lived thousand of miles across the Atlantic. When I asked her about dark moods she said something like "Well, yes, from time to time I do feel stuff like that". I said "What do you mean by stuff like that?". "Well, just stuff like that...", she said, end of discussion. Meanwhile she had quit her job in Germany, married the guy, and lives in Clalifornia.... Written 2013 in Munich.

She is happy for a while
chased away the clouds in the sky
she learnt to live her life
proud and wild

She is stronger than a tree
shaped her body and made it seen
but she cannot override
the breaking of ice, coming over night

Stuff like that she said with a smile
Stuff like that she said with a smile
Gonna chase away the things that gonna make her cry
Stuff like that she said with a smile

She found her love across the sea
she knows the place where she wanna be
she would be swimming with the tides
the waves so high

She wants to overcome the gap
between her wish and reality check
she needs more patience for a while
She can’t deny, even if she tries

Stuff like that she said with a smile
Stuff like that she said with a smile
Gonna chase away the things that gonna make her lie
Stuff like that she said with a smile

And she parties out everything and goes to work every day
trying to make all her things turn right and not to ever seem to fail
and she’s having fun most of the time
but on her bike in the morning sun she wants to leave it all behind

One day she’s gonna make a move
she’s gonna jump or forever loose
at least she’s gonna try
no doubt or lie, no doubt or lie

One day she’s going to decide
to define what’s wrong or right
when the demons rise up in the night
too much to deny, even if she tries

Stuff like that she said with a smile
Stuff like that she said with a smile
Gonna chase away the things that gonna make her die
Stuff like that she said with a smile

Stuff like that she said with a smile
Stuff like that she said with a smile
Gonna chase away the things that gonna make her cry
Stuff like that she said with a smile
