We grew up two stations apart along the same railroad track
You loved anarchy, I loved trains, I took the train to my heart and back

We are so much older now but we’re still sleeping side by side
your smile still makes me shine playing badminton in the night

This spring we bought a car from the money we got from your grandma
and we put her grand grand kids in the backseat
I hope from below she felt her heart beat
when we drove
You drove barefoot all the way to Saint Malo

with all the flowers from Vejers beach
I could have made you a nice bouquet
but the wind would have blown them away
nothing beautiful can ever stay

In the german night me and Evelin chased rabbits and bats
Our lantern gave a magic shine, but The Steller See Lake was black

Bremen town was full of medieval sorcery and black arts
We know where the wizard lives
’cause Lio followed him to his backyard
A blue spell and he go
you drove barefoot all the way to saint malo

In France noone talked english, and I had to use the little french I knew
From the lighthouse in Calais, We could see the ships from Dover come and go

The camping was full of dogs and there were live music friday night
I sang une ombre de la rue, brushing my teeth holding a flashlight

couldn’t find fuel for the camp stove
but you drove barefoot all the way to saint malo
