NITS : LONG FORGOTTEN STORY [1991]

Ένα τραγούδι των εναλλακτικών Ολλανδών από τα early ‘90s και το άλμπουμ τους Giant Normal Dwarf. Πρόταση του stcigar.
A song by the alternative Dutch band from the early ‘90s. It was on their album
Giant Normal Dwarf. A proposal from stcigar.

It’s the year 2040
I survived the holy war
Through the big world I am walking
Since the downfall of the car
I am almost 87
I am almost in my grave
And I don’t believe in heaven anymore
So I come back to the hotel
Where 50 years ago
A woman waited for her lover
But he didn’t show up
“This is not a church”, she said
“But I feel like praying in this hall
It’s the first time in my life
He didn’t call”
It’s a long forgotten story
It’s a long forgotten day
When we sailed the ‘Hope and Glory’
Till the town was far away
It’s a long forgotten story
It’s a long forgotten day
From the room the view
Is still the same
The Lykabettos hill
Where we played in 1989
When the time was standing still
I was almost 38
When I bought a dark red vase
Do I hear somebody knocking
On the glass
It’s a long forgotten story
It’s a long forgotten day
When we sailed the ‘Hope and Glory’
Till the town was far away
It’s a long forgotten story
It’s a long forgotten day
