Philip Bölter Songtext Year Abroad

Year Abroad
aus dem Album Excerpt (2018)

She wears a ring from Italy

She got a hat from Mexico

A bracelet from Australia

And many friends in Peru

She got a million pictures shot

from all around the world

posted on her profile

of an ordinary girl

She said she has seen the world

from below and from above

But she's still a callow girl

'Cause you've got to watch things long enough

to understand


She lies awake in bed at night

In fact she never arrived

Her mind and her heart got torn apart

she wasn't made for this life

Every day feels like a memory to her

when nothing feels real

Lost in a dead end, the poor homesick

will she ever be healed

She said she has seen the world

from below and from above

But she's still a callow girl

'Cause you've got to watch things long enough

to understand


She found a lonely spot

somewhere near to Rome

Counting stars but she feels like being on mars

in fact she wishes to phone home

It will take some time to watch things grow slowly

and understand the act of god

Even one day in your garden will let you find

as much as in one restless year abroad
