lyrics

see, the harsh wind bends the trees
violently tearing off their thinning leaves
they bow down but never break
though it seems this force was more than they could take

remind yourself of this, my dear
right now I know you don't want to hear…

but you know deep down it won't last forever
though I know right now there is no end in sight
and you know that this won't last forever
though right now for you there is no end in sight

there is never any cure
to this kind of agony you must endure
and you think you can't be saved
but we'll try to keep your head above the waves

remind yourself of this, my dear
somebody else still needs you here

and you know these aches won't last forever
though right now for you there is no end in sight
and you know your pains won't last forever
though right now for you there is no end in sight

and just like those trees, you're shaken and bent, you're abandoned and bare
and these winds these wind these winds they blow so cold and strong
and you might lose all your leaves, it might break off a branch, but remember
your roots your roots your roots are still there to hold on hold on

remind yourself of that, my dear
that we still are and will be here.

about

entertainment for the braindead Berlin, Germany

Julia Kotowski, based in Berlin, weaves her sonic universe from shy song lines, small instruments and field recordings, carefully wraps them in paper cut-outs and serves them with home-made ginger cookies. And coffee.
