You ask me, "How it should end?"
What I know about it is: It's impossible to defend.

Do you remember? You never want it.
You must accept that it's not in your hand.
So, face it.

With every word you say I'm getting more sad.
Your words seem far ahead, yet they follow me up into my bed.

You're strong and fearless as you look into the dark.
You're proud and joyous because you're always a great part.
And You'll always be a part.

And, even I don't want to hear
because I'm frozen by the fear
that each one of us tries to hide,
locked away and buried deep inside.

Although I realize I must face it,
I conveniently forget that someday I must quit.

And when I look at my life and how it is changing.
I see no safety.
So, "Why not go 'all-in'?"

Now, we're strong and fearless and we're facing the unknown.
As brave as we are, we defend what's our own ... what is our own.

And, even I want to know.
What is left for me after the show?
I am frightened and full of doubt
by the answer I might have found.

But, although we will all fade away,
there's a law we all must obey.
We're brave. We live our lives day-to-day,
with the knowledge that it could end so fast.
Love, then, would be the only thing that lasts.

AADEN - Hinter diesem Namen verbirgt sich der Liedermacher Patrick Beiling. Mit
seinem selbstgebastelten Telefon, einem „Uralt-Walkmann“, der seinen vielbeschäftigten
Schlagzeuger ersetzt und seiner, als Geburtstagsgeschenk getarnten, Mandoline ist er seit
2012 auf Tour. Immer mit einer neuen Geschichte im Angebot, warum er heute Solo
unterwegs ist und nicht mit seiner achtköpfigen Band auftritt.
