Loss Of Wonder

Text und Musik: Mark, 2016, auf der CD Made in Pulverdingen.

Unsere Fähigkeit, sich an den Wundern unserer Umwelt zu erfreuen, ist leider vergänglich. Als Kinder sind wir noch unendlich fasziniert von der Wunderwelt in einer Pfütze oder von den Abenteuern, die man auf einem Kieselstein, bewaffnet mit einem Stock erleben kann. Wenn wir älter werden, weicht der unerschütterliche Glaube an Magie nach und nach der Wissenschaft und dem Ärger, wenn wir in einer Pfütze nasse Füße bekommen oder der Langeweile, die wir mit einem Stein erleben.

It started up 
simple enough
Hand in hand, pony tails
Blind Mans Bluff
Lunch in the school yard
Games in the park
Skipping stones
Hide and seek
From dawn till dark

Sometimes he still finds her there
Hiding behind the trees he sees
And sometimes she can feel him stare

The years went by 
As they often do
Teenage life, a life in hell
They got each other through
A twist of fate
Took her away
He watched her as she went
A house packed in a little red truck
Out the window she wept

Sometimes he still finds her there
Hiding the trees he sees
And sometimes she can feel him stare

The best laid plans are laid at our feet
Are they ignored or are we just too blind to see
Signs after signs give way to science 
Is there not a place
For dreams and mysteries

College years found her in Maine
Learning to make the world a better place
She found another and settled down
Had 2 kids, 2 cars
And A white picket house

Sometimes he still sees her there
Hiding behind the tress he sees
And sometimes she can feel him stare

The best laid plans are laid at our feet
Are they ignored or are we just too blind to see
Signs after signs give way to science 
Is there not a place
For dreams and mysteries

He lived his life in a west coast town
Always had her is his heart
Playing music, in
Surrounding towns
We he heard the news
Of a plane going down
Mother of two, from his town
She had been found

Sometimes he still finds her there
Hiding behind the tress he sees
And sometimes she can feel him stare
