I wrote this song at the age of fifteen and kept it unchanged since then. Anyway, while recording it I had to leave a comment on the message (blubb).

SAME OLD SONG
Lyrics & Music: Dirk Röse
Recorded: 1996
© 1982

You sit in a corner
Smoking a cigarette
You are bored
Your whole life is bad
There always were times like this
We are frustrated, we feel mistreated
Maybe we don’t know what we miss
You sing the same old song ‘bout letting the sunshine in
So why don’t you let it in?

You stand up so slowly
Come over and cry:
„I’ve tried so hard, but now I’m just dying.“
There always were people like you:
„Life is no happiness, life is just loneliness.“
Too much confusion you’re going through
You sing the same old song ‘bout letting the sunshine in
So why don’t you let it in?

Look at your short tide
Do you think you have really grown?
You really don’t know life’s hurting side
You’re yawning ‘bout my words
You are frustrated, you feel mistreated
I laugh at you: „You love to wear this shirt!“
You sing the same old song ‘bout letting the sunshine in
So why don’t you let it in?

Go on and live your life
This life ain’t your own life
God made it a present to you
Frustration’s just waiting
Waiting for better times, don’t be that passive
Hurry up and put on your dancing shoes
You’ll sing one greatful song ‘bout having the sunshine in
Your life – hey! Come on!
