So Long, Robin Williams (Performance and Lyrics)

So long, Robin Williams
May you find a home in the sky
I feel like I knew you
even though we’ve never met

You get the whole world laughing
Under the sun’s golden grace
Even the moon rises and falls
I remember where I was that day

We pass through moments of greatness
Their shadows we cannot escape
You’re probably writing new jokes now
Flying high avove

So long, Robin Williams
May you find a home in the sky
I feel like I knew you
even though we’ve never met

The wandering trail of imagination
No one had a bad word to say
You give your time so graciously
Not thinking twice about a good cause

So, long live Mrs. Doubtfire,
The World According to Garp
It’s true, sometimes I don’t even recognize
This world myself

Long live Robin Williams
May you find a home in the sky
I feel like I knew you
even though we’ve never met

The music of birds
The blue sky so perfect
The only normal you’ll find
Is the setting on a washing machine

My thoughts are like race cars
And I feel sad on this day
You keep the whole world laughing
Under God’s golden grace

Farewell, Robin Williams
May you find a peace of mind
I feel like I knew you
even though we’ve never met

Long live Robin Williams
May you find a home in the sky
I feel like I knew you
even though we’ve never met

Trees Don’t Stand Still (Album Track and Lyrics)

They may not be walking anywhere anytime soon, but they for sure don’t stand still either: trees. Swaying in and dancing with the wind. Don’t you think it’s a nice metaphor?

Click the Play-Button below to listen to the track Trees Don’t Stand Still in full length for free. Scrolling down further you’ll find the lyrics.

We hope you like this song. We intended to create a timeless work of music, following recording and sound references of Neil Young, The Beatles and the like. The whole album was recorded on a beautiful 24-track tape machine, with the incredible work of producer and bassist Henry Hirsch (most acclaimed for his work with Lenny Kravitz, Madonna, Vanessa Paradis), engineer Rachel Alina (credits include P!nk, Katy Perry, Stephen Marley) and drummer Ernesto Karolys (he’s played on Letterman with First Aid Kit!). It was released this April on iTunes and other digital music platforms, and came out as CD this August.

Here are the song lyrics for you to sing along:

The truth always happens in doorways
And time is but a thief
And there’s nowhere to go but everywhere
Those are the silliest shoes in America

CHORUS
Winds of change are coming
Maybe they’re already here
Life is but a dream
Trees don’t stand still
At the end of the road

And I don’t know where I am tonight
Dressed in hobo rags
And the streets are drenched with longing
And all kinds of fancy hats
And we move from town to town
Digging up the underground
Losing space and time
But not in any line

CHORUS

And I’ve done my best here
In this mad old little world
And I’m letting myself go blue
With this hunger for you

SECOND CHORUS
Sometimes things are just moments
And then they disappear
If time is but a shoreline
The ocean don’t care
At the end of the road
