I’m wasting my time on long distance phonecalls
I’m wasting my money in internet cafes
I miss my family I miss my friends
but I can’t go back I’m not ready yet
I’m wasting my time on long distance phonecalls
I’m wasting my money in internet cafes
I miss my family I miss my friends but I can’t go back…
I’m not ready yet

my mother’s hair is turning white and I’m not there
my father’s getting older too and I’m not there
my sister wins and loses races, my uncle’s dying
and I’m not there to say goodbye

my friends are moving in and out of flats and ‘m not there
my friends are falling in and out of love and I’m not there
my friends are getting married, will I be there
to celebrate with them?

my friends are having nervous breakdowns and I’m not there
my friends are falling apart and I’m not there
my friends are trying to kill themselves and I’m not there to say ” don’t do it!
‘cause I need you, what would I do without you?”

everytime I go back we pretend nothing’s changed
besides the fun there is a ghost lingering between us
we adore each other but I’m not part of their everyday lives no more
and they are not part of mine
in a new town in a new scene
with a whola lotte brand new things to do
my new friends are so brilliant they almost made me forget
but how could I ever forget, how could I ever forget you?

so I’m wasting my time on long distance phonecalls
I’m wasting my money in internet cafes
I miss my family I miss my friends but I can’t go back… I’m not ready yet
I’m wasting my time on long distance phonecalls
I’m wasting my money in internet cafes
I miss my family I miss my friends but I can’t go back
I’m not ready yet to join the army
I miss my family I miss my friends but I can’t go back
I’m not ready yet to settle down, I want to run around
I miss my family I miss my friends but I can’t go back
I’d rather stay a little bit more abroad, abroad
but I miss my family and I miss my friends.

My little sister fights with waves three times her size
while I could easily drown in a glass of tap water,
I wish she could show me how to swim.
She fights with every obstacle and sticks to her goals
while I, in the first difficulty, I hide in my bed
with a frown on my face.
Our mother says she should read more
I say mom let her be
I feel she already knows what it takes to get by,
maybe she should be the boy
of our family.

My little sister deals with big boys.
She has them lining up for her,
she is a femme fatale without a long cigarette holder,
without ermine furs.
Whenever I am back home we lock ourselves in her room,
jump into bed and talk about men, what else,
and the mysteries of love and the wonders of sex.
Sometimes we take things too far
like when we commented on the “turkish delights”
smack bang on the Christmas table.
No wonder she and me lost our cherries
In adjascent rooms, on the same week
on the hot summer of 2000.

My little sister knows how to be tender with my parents
while I can be pretty stiff and I don’t want to be touched too much
but she is huggy and smiley.
And she will hopefully give them those grandchildren they would love
While I will be always be their weird uncle who´s only there at Christmas
and tells wacky stories.
My sister´s husband will be worried
“Should we leave him alone with the kids?”
and she´ll say
“Let him be, the kids like him, can´t you see, he´s so lonely
and besides he doesn´t mean harm at all, he doesn´t mean harm at all
he doesn´t mean harm at all.¨
Little sister I guess it´s high time I said that I am so sorry
for making your life hell.
When we were little I´d bully you all the time, I´d humiliate you,
I´d tell you scary stores just to see your pretty face stained with tears
but you know kids can be little monsters sometimes.
Can your Scorpio heart forget?
I did not mean any harm at all.
