lyrics

Well when you went away
You left me in the ring
Fists high and my head low
The lights revealed a sweaty face and a chest pounding up and down fast​

Full force and evident
I loved you like a fighter
A fiery featherweight
But from the hits my head went
Oh, lalalalala
Oh, lalalalala

Was I caught in the words of a fickle man?
I was tougher than all of them when I stayed
You said love was a big fish and I the bait
But I am living the promises that you made​

I will love you, till my heart burns out
till my big foolish grin shows a bloody mouth
In the flash that we share a kiss on the ropes
I'm your dizzy baby for the show

Another lesson learned
I guess I'll learn to get by
But I'll miss the ease of laughing
And I'll miss the afterglow
And I'll miss your slender hands
And how they moved like soft leaves when you danced for me sometimes

Was I caught in the words of a fickle man?
I was tougher than all of them when I stayed
You said love was a big fish and I the bait
But I am living the promises that you made

I will love you, till my heart burns out
till my big foolish grin shows a bloody mouth
In the flash that we share a kiss on the ropes
I'm your dizzy baby for the show

Well when you went away
You left me in the ring
My fists high and my head low
I was to fight the every damn thing that stood in our way

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.
