stand in the sun

you found a place where yesterday won’t find you
no souvenirs to remind you
you crossed the divide
you dyed your hair and your accent is fading
the change is exhilarating
you feel so alive

the change of a name, anonymity in the places
among many foreign faces
you’re lost in a crowd
I’m on my way and I hope I still recognize you
you still feel the same that I do
and you say it out loud

we’ll stand in the sun
after the deal is done
after every day and every night on the run
we’ll stand in the sun
we’ll show the world who won
with the devil on the run
we’ll stand in the sun

there is a time, there is a time for leaving
and a time for getting even
as they soon will know
I see you now, and I hope you still recognize me
you smile at the time our eyes meet
that’s when I know

so far from the world you know
so easy to just let go
and know that we have finally found a sanctuary now
a candle in the sun
unnoticed by anyone
but I can see you burning in the light
