Dizziness

You tell me I’m a piano with too many keys
I can play myself with unlimited possibilities
I have almost found the things I was always looking for
If the cigarettes will not smoke me anymore

I dreamt of organs with keys in yellow and green
I felt dizzy when they looked like cigarettes to me
I will be famous, I will be gorgeous, I will be adored
If the cigarettes will not smoke me anymore

My carpet used to be purple, but now it’s grey
It turned into an ashtray smoking two-hundred a day
But you will always hear me playing music behind the café doors
If the cigarettes will not smoke me anymore

Did you know I looked for my lighter, I found it at the end of the day
That night I had a performance, I forgot I had to play
But I still believe that I’m the greatest, that’s for sure
If the cigarettes will not smoke me anymore
