"The Catcher in the Rye" as written by and Tobias M�ns Lennart Isaksson....
It doesn’t matter.
It all makes sense for all I know.
It’s the same thing that has come that will go.
I tried to speak up
(most of the time I was muzzled by a joke)
but inspiration took a break and I choked.

I said I’d give an eye for you,
but that was just a lie.
I said I’d be the catcher in the rye for you,
but that was just a lie.
I said I’d fight and die for you,
but that was just a lie.
I said I’d steal the sun from the sky for you,
but that was just a lie.
I just closed my eyes for you.

It’s just a cycle.
Didn’t we all find out long ago?
From Hemingway to The Crystals,

from de Sade to Sade.
It doesn’t matter.
It all makes sense for all I know.
Those starry eyes will glisten,
till the waves reach the cove.

I said I’d give an eye for you,

but that was just a lie.

I said I’d be the catcher in the rye for you,

but that was just a lie.

I said I’d fight and die for you,

but that was just a lie.

I said I’d steal the sun from the sky for you,

but that was just a lie.

I just closed my eyes.

I only closed my eyes.

I just closed my eyes for you.
