lyrics

Marlena, marlena, my eyes are getting red,
I'm wide awake in bed,
can't make my way into the world of dreams,
but it's not because of all those tears you made me cry,
I just forgot how to fall asleep without you by my side,

Marlena, marlena, my knees are getting brown,
I'm crawling on the ground,
I'm living with the spiders and the worms,
I didn't choose this over cars and trains, I'd rather jog or fly,
I just forgot how to stand up straight without you by my side,

Marlena, marlena,
Marlena, marlena,

Marlena, marlena, my face is getting blue,
my time is almost through,
I'm wheezing, coughing, spitting all around,
but my passages are clear, my dear, my mouth is open wide,
I just forgot how to catch my breath without you by my side,

Marlena, marlena, I'm staring in the black,
are you ever coming back,
am I stuck here feeling useless all the time,
I'm not embarrassed or heartbroke, it's not stupid macho pride,
I just forgot how to live my life without you by my side,

Marlena, marlena,
Marlena, marlena,
I just forgot how to live my life without you by my side.
