Poets of the Fall – Once Upon a Playground Rainy (Official Audio w/ Lyrics)


Hello old lovers of mine, my little boy wishes of fortune’s kisses Now dreams cast aside In the fading light your crown of thorns
becomes a halo of branching horns And yet so beautiful I see you gently swaying in a sea of seesaws Slumming in the shack Tony built last year I know you’ll be holding court with jackdaws Crying when nobody ever sees your tears When no-one sees your tears What used to fly us from here to the stratosphere What became of our passion
Is there no-one who cares Hear the soft minor key of the one time me Still the acrobat with my heart on my sleeve And it’s so beautiful I see you gently swaying in a sea of seesaws Slumming in the shack Tony built last year I know you’ll be holding court with jackdaws Crying when nobody ever sees your tears When no-one sees your tears Out back where the gates are closed Like a pitiful skeleton pose We held our first line of defence Saw our likeness and it made no sense Like toy soldiers in the muck and dirt Salvation in your every word Lost in the fray of everyday I see you gently swaying in a sea of seesaws Slumming in the shack Tony built last year I know you’ll be holding court with jackdaws Crying when nobody ever sees your tears When no-one sees your tears You’re still fighting, I see, like a modern day Bruce Lee Standing proud in this parody

    Hello old lovers of mine

    My little boy wishes of fortune's kisses

    Now dreams cast aside

    In the fading light, your crown of thorns

    Becomes a halo of branching horns

    And yet so beautiful

    [Chorus]

    I see you gently swaying in a sea of seesaws

    Slumming in the shack Tony built last year

    I know you'll be holding court with jackdaws

    Crying when nobody ever sees your tears

    When no one sees your tears

    [Verse 2]

    What used to fly us from here to the stratosphere?

    What became of our passion, Is there no one who cares?

    Hear the soft minor key of the one-time me

    Still the acrobat with my heart on my sleeve

    And it's so beautiful

    [Chorus]

    I see you gently swaying in a sea of seesaws

    Slumming in the shack Tony built last year

    I know you'll be holding court with jackdaws

    Crying when nobody ever sees your tears

    When no one sees your tears

    [Bridge]

    Out back when the gates are closed

    Like a pitiful skeleton pose

    We held our first line of defense

    Saw our likeness and it made no sense

    Toy soldiers in the muck and dirt

    Salvation in your every word

    Lost in the fray of everyday

    [Chorus]

    I see you gently swaying in a sea of seesaws

    Slumming in the shack Tony built last year

    I know you'll be holding court with jackdaws

    Crying when nobody ever sees your tears

    When no one sees your tears

    [Closing]

    You're still fighting, I see

    Like a modern day Bruce Lee

    Standing proud in this parody
