Manchmal

This song is by Fish and appears on the album 13th Star (2007).

The turtle and the scorpion, the riverbank, the deal
To cross the open water they mutually agreed
Out there in the distance, the other side in sight
Banking on forever, holding on for life
I can see the other side
I want to see the other side

Somewhere in the middle the truth is hard to find
I'm running round in circles; I find I'm running blind
Praying for the distance, praying for more time
I'm running round in circles, I'm running out of time

Manchmal, I often think of you
Manchmal, I want to see it through
Manchmal, I should feel something more inside
Manchmal, I want to reach the other side

The point of grave decision, no turning back this time
No sense of reluctance, no doubt in my mind
Except that nagging feeling, the thought that it might fail
The bullet's in the chamber, the sting is in the tail

Manchmal, I only think of you
Manchmal, could we see it through?
Manchmal, there is something left inside
Manchmal, my nature cannot hide

You're swimming
You're swimming

I can see where we're going; I can see how you feel
I can sense you're going to leave me, I know you'll break the deal
I'll drown in my sorrows and I'll drink at your shrine
Manchmal

Is that the way that you see it? Tell me how it should be
It's time to choose between the devil and the deep blue sea
Manchmal, Manchmal

Manchmal, there's something stirring deep inside
Manchmal, a chance to come alive
Manchmal, manchmal
It's time to choose between the open water and your dreams
It's time you faced reality, time you faced your fears
Manchmal, it's different this time
Manchmal, manchmal
Manchmal, it'll be different this time
Manchmal, manchmal
Jedesmal
