People

A song I wrote for the Filkcontinental 2017 main concert.

If you have more verses to add, just let me know!

People

Sometimes I have people talking in my head

Some of them are heroes, and some of them are dead

Some of them are fantasy, and some of them are real

And they keep on talking in my head, just imagine how I feel!

„Do you think that black is beautiful? Does this cape make me strong?”

Says Batman to Karl Lagerfeld. But he says: “It’s just to long!

Have you tried a golden negligee and combine it with high heels?”

Now I have that picture in my head. Just imagine how that feels.

Sometimes I have people talking in my head

Some of them are heroes, and some of them are dead

Some of them are fantasy, and some of them are real

And they keep on talking in my head, just imagine how I feel!

“I am glad that you all made it!” says the Captain to his crew.

He is bald and wears pyjamas and I think you know him, too.

And they all make their suggestions where and how they baldly go

And he picks the most ridiculous and says: “Make it so.”

Sometimes I have people talking in my head

Some of them are heroes, and some of them are dead

Some of them are fantasy, and some of them are real

And they keep on talking in my head, just imagine how I feel!

But the worst crowd in my head are the versions of myself

Lazy-me wants to stay in bed, social-me wants to go out

Music-me is glad that we are here, and that we can sing this song

It’s the inner team in my head, and we have to get along.

Sometimes I have people talking in my head

Some of them are mommies, and some of them are dads

Some of them are Peter Pan, and some of them are me

And they keep on talking in my head, just imagine how I feel!

There’s an all night long discussion: Who deserves the Iron Throne?

Who will be the king of Westeros – Captain Marvel – or is she gone?

“I propose a man called Tony”, says a Greyjoy in the dark.

And they gave their votes to Iron Man. Well at least, he is a Stark!

Sometimes we are people talking in your head

Some of us are heroes, and us of them are dead

Some of us are fantasy, and some of us are real

And we keep on talking in your head, just imagine how we feel.

Sometimes I have people talking in my head

Some of them are heroes, and some of them are bad

Some of them are psychos, and some of them are worse

And if you have people in your head – just write another verse!

(and if you send it to me, I will add it to the song)
