Escape

(Edward McBride)

This song is about a guy who is born into poverty, with parents who do not care. He learns to throw a baseball and with a steely attitude makes it through College and into the Professional leagues.

Was du gerade machst

By Mikael Duda


"Was du gerade machst" in ein trauriger Text und spiegelt eine Situation wieder, die wohl jeder einmal durchlebt hat. Die Trennung von seinem Partner ist noch nicht lange her und man fragt sich ständig, was der andere wohl gerade macht. Ist er glücklich? Vermisst er mich? Oder wurde ich schon längst ersetzt? Nach einer Trennung hatte ich genau diese Gedanken und es bereitete mir schlaflose nächte. Die Zeit in der ich nicht schlief nutzte ich dann, um diesen Song zu schreiben. Ein sehr trauriger und depressiver Text.
