Cutting Hair at Night
(Johannes Becker)

It's no big deal if you wanna want to cut my hair in the night
you said the moon is right and I wanna give it a try
all the others are waiting for the busline 75
to go out east to the super beamer sky

but I'd rather stay in here and see how it goes
watching the feathers fall and listening to your voice
you say everything circles so you never have to die
sure I'd wanna believe in it, but the scientists are telling me lies

and there's no turning, it's just fools learning
and there's no telling, and I wished I could
yeah I wished I would, yeah I wished I could, yeah I wished I could

Because it's no big deal I mean you can't even believe in the news
so why don't give it a try and put on some new shoes
last night I caught myself talking to the sky
is there something more honest than the night

and there's no turning, it's just fools learning
and there's no telling, and I wished I could
yeah I wished I would, yeah I wished I could, yeah I wished I could

the other day we went out discussing zodiac signs in sunny fields
I tried to kiss you there but you said it wouldn't feel real
I apologized and asked "so why then do you always smile?"
pisces do always fantasise

On our way back at night we passed the new club
in the old audition hall where the others were lining up
I mentioned going there but you said my hair needed to be cut again
maybe half an inch or something like that
