Foreshadowing (2006 Remastered LP Version)

Duncan Sheik

Maybe I'll just whisper
Neither humble neither proud
Listen if you care to
But I will not sing too loud
No, not tonight
Just before I'm over and out
I wanna sing of better times
I wanna sing of hope
We've heard those empty promises
Sound like such a joke
And so I stumble
So hard to say, so difficult
Sometimes I am not able
To separate my dreams from false cliches

[Chorus:]
But the more and more I hear it
I feel the spirit rise
The people here are talking 'bout
The oneness of our lives
Maybe I will turn away, maybe you will run
It just maybe a foreshadowing
Of what's to come

So anything can happen,
I don't believe in fate
I won't try to convince you
'Cause it's getting kind of late
There it is. Just before I'm over and out
My parting shot-just to say you hold the reins

[Chorus:]

And will you struggle
To realize this earthly paradise
Isn't so far above us?
So put away those poisonous ideas
You know it's just ideas
They're the only...enemies 'round here
I see your eyes are closing
Didn't mean to keep you up
There's more that I could say now
But I guess I've said enough
So sleep well
Just before I'm over and out
Yes, sleep well, just before I'm over and out

The more and more I hear it
I feel the spirit rise
The people here are talking about
The oneness of all life
Maybe I will turn away, maybe you will run
But it just may be
A foreshadowing of what's to come
