Simon Says
Lyrics & Music: Nina Christensen

It starts with three mountains high, with in between valleys
During a major storm my body was born
They gave me wings and tought me to fly
And after that, like all the rest, they put me in a cage
It was shining like gold, with money on the bank,
furniture, a TV, everything except the key

They stole my song.
I’m empty handed.
Got no buttons to push, and the earth has turned to nothing
Oh, Simon says, light up the dark!
I was building bridges but now all my work seems lost

Inside my head there’s a mute orchestra playing
symphonies about everything that I could do instead
of playing this role, that usually valley mission.
Do I see things clearly or do I just interfer?
The key just need to be out there, somewhere!

They stole my song.
I’m empty handed.
Got no buttons to push, and the earth has turned to nothing
Oh, Simon says, light up the dark!
I was building bridges but now all my work seems lost

Don’t make me feel like one down in the valley
I’ll never become someone in the valley
I’ve tried a thousand times down there already
Release my wings take me to the mountains where the storm is!
