By my hand

Words/Music: A.Graefe

Bass: James Tomplait

Yesterday I found your photos in a little case.
A stranger in uniform, my fingers touched your face.
Pictures from a long time ago, colours faded out.
It´s the memory of you, that this song is about.

You lived your life before we met, I only got a glance.
You left , I couldn´t get to know you,
We never had a chance.
Your life seems so unreal to me, I try to understand.
I wish you could explain to me and take me by my hand.

We were walking on a meadow,
with daisys coverin´ the ground.
Hand in hand, I was amazed,
no single bloom your feet trod down.
It doesn´t matter, did it happen ,
or just in a children´s dream.
You were my hero all my life,
I loved you, but it seems

The marks you left are everywhere
and burned into my soul.
The house you built by your own hands
is now lost and gone and sold.
I´m passing it , feeling ashamed,
How it came down through all these years.
I lost something I never had, still fighting with my tears.

You lived your life before we met, I only got a glance.
You left , I couldn´t get to know you,
We never had a chance.
Your life seems so unreal to me, I try to understand.
I wish you could explain to me and take me by my hand.
