7. Mother Of Pearl


Turn the lights down, way down low
Turn up the music, hi as fi can go
All the gang´s here, everyone you know
It´s a crazy scene, hey there just look over your shoulder

Get the picture? No no no no …….(Yes)
Walk a tightrope, your life-sign-line
Such a bright hope, right place, right time
What´s your number? Never you mind
Take a powder, but hang on a minute what´s that coming round the corner?
Have you a future? No no no no …….(Yes)

Well I´ve been up all night again party-time wasting is too much fun
Then I step back thinking of life´s inner meaning and my latest fling

It´s the same old story all love and glory it´s a pantomime
If you’re looking for love in a looking glass world it’s pretty hard to find

Oh mother of pearl I wouldn’t trade you for another girl
Divine intervention always my intention so I take my time
I´ve been looking for something I’ve always wanted but was never mine
But now I’ve seen that something just out of reach – glowing – very Holy grail

Oh mother of pearl lustrous lady of a sacred world
Thus: even Zarathustra another-time-loser could believe in you
With every goddess a let down every idol a bring down
It gets you down but the search for perfection

Your own predilection goes on and on and on and on
Canadian Club love a place in the Country everyone’s ideal
But you are my favorita and a place in your heart dear makes me feel more real

Oh mother of pearl I wouldn’t change you for the whole world

You’re highbrow, holy with lots of soul melancholy shimmering
Serpentine sleekness was always my weakness like a simple tune

But no dilettante filigree fancy beats the plastic you
Career girl cover exposed and another slips right into-view
Oh looking for love in a looking glass world is pretty hard for you

Few throwaway kisses the boomerang misses spin round and round
Fall on feather-bed quilted faced with silk softly stuffed eider down

Take refuge in pleasure just give me your future we’ll forget your past
Oh mother of pearl submarine lover in a shrinking world
Oh lonely dreamer your choker provokes a picture cameo

Oh mother of pearl so so semi-precious in your detached world
Oh mother of pearl I wouldn´t trade you for another girl
