Songtext zu Love letters (through the times)

(Words and Music by Ekkehard Penk)

Waking up with an aching head,
far away in a foreign bed.
Leaves are fallin' from a dusty sky,
And my thoughts begin to fly.

Baby I miss you, where are you today,
Baby I miss you, come here to stay.
Babe I miss you, but you're lightyears away.

Through centuries I've been calling you,
Don't know the way but you'll answer for shure.
You tell me, you'll love me for good
but I cannot wrap my arms around you.

Baby I miss you, where are you today,
Baby I miss you, come here to stay.
Babe I miss you, but you're lightyears away.

Chorus:
Love letters through the times,
words the only way to touch your life.
Love letters through the times,
is the only thing I've got from you.

I hope, one day we'll meet for real,
but I'm hangin' tight in this timeless wheel.
Rescue me, get me out of here.
Lend me your hand, and I'll be there.

Baby I miss you, where are you today,
Baby I miss you, come here to stay.
Babe I miss you, but you're lightyears away.

Bridge:
One day we'll find together,
one day we'll stand the stormy weather,
I feel the time is near.
One day, your hand in mine
One day, you'll light my life
the bounds of time will disappear

Chorus:
Love letters through the times,
words the only way to touch your life.
Love letters through the times,
is the only thing I've got from you.

Waking up with an aching head,
far away in a foreign bed.
Leaves are fallin' from a dusty sky,
And my thoughts begin to fly.

Babe I miss you...... (fade)

Love Letters (through the times) entstand nach dem Genuss des Filmes "Haus am See" mit meiner Lieblings-Seicht-Film-Schauspielerin Sandra Bullock.  Das Keanu Reeves dabei ist, hat das ganze zwar nicht aufgewertet, aber auch nicht schlechter gemacht ;-).
Ich fand den Gedanken, über Zeitgrenzen hinweg eine (Liebes-)Beziehung aufzubauen und nur über den "Postweg" zu kommunizieren faszinierend. Allerdings hab ich das Happyend des Filmes nicht in dem Songtext nachvollzogen. Wäre des Guten zuviel gewesen. Lieber offenlassen und dem geneigten Zuhörer oder Leser ein bisschen Raum zum phantasieren lassenn.......

Die Melodie hatte ich schon länger im Kopf, doch leider fehlte mir ein passendes Thema für den Songtext. Das hat sich dann gottseidank mit einem Kinobesuch geklärt. Da zeigt sich wieder, auch seichte Kost kann inspirieren....
