about

Written at my flat at Swinemünder Straße 117 in Berlin, Germany on a New Year's eve. Promising myself I wouldn't go out to celebrate until i finished penning a song, I hunkered down with a homemade bier garden (a suspended planter outside my bedrrom's window, keeping my pilsners chilled) and finished 30 minutes before the clock struck midnight.

Here's the demo video I made at the moment it was completed.

lyrics

WEIGHT IN GOLD
(S. Puchalski)

These dreams awake with no legs to stand
Just grains of sand that are greater than the sum of their parts
When the Sandman comes
And given the chance I’ll learn to dance
And then twirl into somebody else

These dreams are worth their weight in gold

These dreams go on a lost crusade
When rivals oppose they hide deep behind honey brown eyes
It’s a good little war
To stand not afraid

Though worthless in trade I can always rely on the dark
These dreams are worth their weight in gold
Not to sell short, not to be sold
These dreams are worth their weight in gold

Year after day of pecking away long at the stone
All these dreams in her sleep never call
For my blank, white page
She gives me words
For whatever it’s worth
I will leave a note on her door

To me, you are worth your weight in gold
Baby, these dreams are worth their weight in gold
Darling, these dreams are worth their weight in gold
