Lyrics: 

I am a fool, a lurching wagon (needs music)

Still to stay, now it’s too late,
you´ve always known I’d have to go…
my kiss-mark on your neck will fade
just like an angel in the snow…

I´ve always told you I’m a jester,
and I will stay it till the end…
I will never turn into a nester,
for that, simply, I´m not meant…

(Chorus)
You´ve always known…
I’m a lurching wagon,
a button that is hard to pin,
you´ve always known, my dear,
that I’m a paper-dragon
to be blown away by the slightest wind…

Please, don’t shed now all those tears…
as every summer starts and ends,
I just told you the truth, my dear,
and you told me you´d understand…

You´ve always known I’m a musician,
I am not at all who you need…
songs are my food and my ammunition,
my home are just dead-end-streets…

(Chorus)
You´ve always known…
I’m a lurching wagon,
a button that is hard to pin,
you´ve always known, my dear,
that I’m a paper-dragon
to be blown away by the slightest wind…

(Bridge)
I´ll be gone, I´ll leave no traces,
you may dream, but do not plan…
I’m a fool, a jacket with two faces,
I´ve always told you who I am…

(Chorus)
You´ve always known…
I’m a lurching wagon,
a button that is hard to pin,
you´ve always known, my dear,
that I’m a paper-dragon
to be blown away by the slightest wind…

These lyrics are smart but also draw on emotion to create wonderful imagery. I love the lines "that I’m a paper-dragon / to be blown away by the slightest wind…" that is beautiful. Really nice work!
