Spent four weeks in this town
had to write my new address down.
I never used to cry, now I do it
but I don't know why.
Met nice people: a girl and a boy
and I think I'm easy to enjoy
New song.
The only thing I know is:
It takes time to come home.
Scissors, bag or a stone! (Scissors, bag or a stone)
It takes time to come home!

Summer replaced by fall no need to hang 'round with people, that's all.
No need for friendly advices – just come over and
ask me twice: “Do you love me? Do you love me?” I think it's best for us all
– this is an emergencycall. I dial your number again and
again, what's wrong with your phone my friend?

BYE BYE!
Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye.
BYE BYE!
Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye.

I take the subwaytrain
and watch myself in the black windowpane.
Then I notice that I've gone too far,
because I'm used to busses or daddys car.
We live a couple of lives, huh?
So what's so special with the one you've got now?

New song,
the only thing I know is:
It takes time to come
home.
Scissors, bag or a stone! It takes time to come home!

Summer replaced by fall no need to hang 'round with people, that's all.
No need for friendly advices – just come over and
ask me twice: “Do you love me? Do you love me?”
I know it's goodbye x4
Goodbye x5

    General CommentHehe. Lovely piece of Swenglish here: "Scissors, bag or stone" is the game most English-speakers would know as "Rock, paper, scissors". Not sure if that's intentional, but it's pretty fitting for a song about feeling uncomfortable in a new city, sung in a not-quite-comfortable language...
