Old Building

[Intro: Gustav]
Barré
 
[Hook: Gustav]
Time creeps along the windowsill
I look out from my old building and think about nothing
You say you want to be my padawan
So come on, I'm taking you with me today
 
[Part 1: Gustav]
Laundry is drying in the inner courtyard
On the roadbike through the neighbourhood going fast
Life is good and not meaningless
A crate of Sterni* at Netto** (Ey-ey-ey)
Through the night on the suburban train (Ey-ey-ey)
And today becomes yesterday (Ey-ey-ey)
Yes, maybe you'll be right
But I can't change it anymore
 
[Pre-Hook: Gustav]
And you still hear noise through the wall until eight in the morning
We're dancing close together on the parquet flooring into the night
 
[Hook: Gustav]
And time creeps along the windowsill
I look out from my old building and think about nothing
You say you want to be my padawan
So come on, I'm taking you with me today
 
[Part 2: Paul]
I'm running a little late and close the door behind me
The asphalt is warm, I feel good when I'm here
And then the six of us go to the Späti*** on the corner
Yeah, ey
It's a bit like it used to be, I kick the ball over the parking lot
We're having fun and I think I'm allowed that
The neighbour is shouting as if it were a crime
Because he has no clue (Ey-ey-ey)
And if you feel what I mean, come over
I have time and I'm staying here
 
[Hook: Gustav]
Time creeps along the windowsill
I look out from my old building and think about nothing
You say you want to be my padawan
So come on, I'm taking you with me today
Time creeps along the windowsill
I look out from my old building and think about nothing
You say you want to be my padawan
So come on, I'm taking you with me today
 
* Sterni: Sternburg beer
** Netto: supermarket chain
*** Späti: small convenience store, often open late at night
 
Thanks!
