about

A cover version of one of my most favourite ever Neubauten tracks, which I put together in early 2015 originally just to be performed live at the official Annual Einstürzende Neubauten Party, run by N. U. Unruh of Neubauten and Pale Music's Steve Morell from Berlin. He liked my version of his song so much he asked me to record a version of it to accompany a video he made of my performance on the night, so I duly obliged, and now here it is for your aural delectation.

lyrics

Sabrina - Written by Einstürzende Neubauten, 2000


It's not the red of the dying sun
The morning sheets surprising stain
It's not the red of which we bleed

The red of cabernet sauvignon
A world of ruby all in vain

It's not that red

It's not as golden as Zeus famous shower
It doesn't, not at all, come from above
It's in the open but it doesn't get stolen
It's not that gold
It's not as golden as memory
Or the age of the same name

It's not that gold

I wish this would be your colour
I wish this would be your colour
I wish this would be your colour
Your colour, I wish

It is as black as malevitch's square
The cold furnace in which we stare
A high pitch on a future scale
It is a starless winternight's tale
It suits you well

It is that black

I wish this would be your colour
I wish this would be your colour
I wish this would be your colour
Your colour, I wish
