I lived in seclusion for a couple of years
In a German farmhouse just drinking beer
And every morning I'd wake up with a smile from ear to ear

I had one contact to the outside world
A phone in London and a seasick girl
I knew what was happening but only in my part of the world

I knew what was happening
I knew that this was my world, yeah my world
I knew what was happening in my part of the world
My part of the world

There was an abandoned castle with empty stairs
There was a rumour Pavarotti would sing there
To raise funds for a music school but then the
Whole thing vanished into thin air, I said thin air

It was a crazy idea and it vanished into the air
Yeah, the air
It was a falling down castle with falling down stairs
Falling down stairs, wooh

I could walk the streets unrecognized
Nobody stopped me, I was never surprised
By anybody's actions or by an ex-lover's eyes
An ex-lover's eyes

And this felt good and this felt so right
Yeah, so right
To be unloaded as I walked through the night

Yeah, this felt good and this felt so right
To be unloaded as I walked through the night
This felt right
