Castles and Dreams~by Britta Hoffmann


 

 

Castles and Dreams

I certainly don’t know why
you keep building castles in the sky
why don’t you try reaching your goals for real
when you know it’s what you need to heal

I don’t understand why you don’t make a plan
with which you can make your dream come true
you can make a mistake – it’s just human
it doesn’t say anything about the real you

it doesn’t count if we go wrong
at times we just take the wrong turn
what counts is that we’re staying strong
that we keep the fire inside to burn
we just shouldn’t give up trying
not dimply put down our heads to be crying
keep it up – we’re so close to reach where we want to be
keep going – we’re just about to set ourselves free

I just don’t know why
you lift me so high up into the sky
what if I’m so high that I’m getting out of reach
if I’m so far I can’t understand your speech

I want to be close and real
I’m not perfect and very well know
that being put on a podest isn’t the way I want to feel
and I’m not really sure how I can show

it doesn’t matter if we go wrong
at times we just take the wrong turn
what counts is that we’re straying strong
that we keep the fire inside to burn
we just shouldn’t give up trying
not dimply put down our heads to be crying
keep it up – we’re so close to reach where we want to be
keep going – we’re just about to set ourselves free

we sometimes just seem to go wrong on our way
but looking back maybe it was just right
maybe when we’re looking back some day
we can finally see that there was always a light

we somehow get guidance to make it through
even if we’re not sure what we have to do
sometimes the solution is closer than we knew
so don’t give up – because this is about you

it doesn’t matter if we go wrong
at times we just take the wrong turn
what counts is that we’re straying strong
that we keep the fire inside to burn
we just shouldn’t give up trying
not dimply put down our heads to be crying
keep it up – we’re so close to reach where we want to be
keep going – we’re just about to set ourselves free
