lyrics

I may not be what I seem
Hold your expectations don’t mistake me
I’m an angel to the devil that awaits me

I may not be what I seem
Turn your back on all your little daydreams
Listen to these notes now they translate me

I was never, I was never, I was never there
I was never, I was never, I was never there
I was never, I was never, I was never there
I was never, I was never, I was never there

You know that I can’t do this
I know now that he called for me from high ground
No use that I run fast like a greyhound​

You know that I can’t do this
I see now that I went spellbound I went uncrowned
Just another pale fool that a-run round

I was never, I was never, I was never there
I was never, I was never, I was never there
I was never, I was never, I was never there
I was never, I was never, I was never there

He hit me with the blunt side of his back hand
Lit me and then slowly let me burn down
kicked me in the storm and just stood in the quiet eye
Just stood in the quiet eye

No you never, no you never noticed
No you never, no you never noticed
No you never, no you never noticed
No you never, no you never noticed

That I was never, I was never I was never there
I was never, I was never I was never there
I was never, I was never I was never there
I was never, I was never, I was never
I was never, I was never, I was never

about

Mone Berlin, Germany

Gut-wrenching, mesmerising performances drenched in authenticity. Mone provokes and soothes in the same breath. Her thought- evoking subjects – muses, lost loves, power struggles, morality and sex – all convalesce on stage in deep primal self-expression.

Mone is currently working on her debut album, set for release in fall 2020.
