The Nits - Aquarium lyrics

I was walking through the Palace of Mirrors
In the city of Luzern
I was looking at my own face
A 1000 times turning with every turn
The eyes of my child like a school of fishes
In the aquarium
Were looking at me from another world
From a world to come

She said: "Bring me the light
The light that was shining on the tree outside
Bring me the rain that was falling
On my shoulders on a summer night"
I thought nobody died, but it's not true
We die, there's no escape
Let us rewind our lives like a videotape

I was walking through the empty rooms
Of the house we'd left behind
I heard the voice of my child going up
The stairs in the pale moonlight
There were words like raindrops
Words like snowflakes falling down
Falling down from another world
A world to come

She said: "Bring me the song
That was in my head when I fell asleep
Bring me the love that came
And left me like an empty train"
I thought love never died
But it died and there's no escape
Let us rewind our lives like a videotape

I remember the aquarium in Artis
With the angry big fish
The glass like a mirror
We could see our faces making funny faces
It seems that our eyes were looking at us
From another world

Bring me the summer that I thought
That I thought would never end
Bring me the snow that was falling
Was falling in my open hand
I thought life never ends
But it ends and there's no escape
Let us rewind our lives like a videotape

(Like a videotape
Like a videotape)

She said: "Bring me the head
That was resting on my shoulder
Bring me the heart that I left
That I left, left behind"
I thought nobody died, but it's not true
We die, there's no escape
Let us rewind our lives like a videotape
And play it back in slow motion
Playback in slow motion
In slow motion
In slow motion
