lyrics

She responds with pride
directly into their eyes

It is difficult
but she doesn’t want to fall


They stand right in front of her
with their clean clothes

They won’t listen to her story
’cause they believe
they know it before it is told

I’m sure you know those people

they exist everywhere
in every country

they turn their vague fear
into targeted hate

they heard the name of her country
too often in the last months

but still it is just letter after letter


no picture of a landscape
nor of the houses

nor of the bombings

nor of the blood

just her face under a million of others

and she is the one to realize 

those who throw a stone
believe they own it


She’s gonna reach the boarder and finds her way 

She crawls through the fence

She won’t let them take her rights

She dreamed of safety

and education for her child

but now she sits and waits and waits and waits

’cause there are so many of her


Her language is louder and faster than theirs 

her skin is darker


she came over the ocean

water was her greatest hope 

and her greatest fear

there was some sort of trouble
and they say it was one of her kind 

and if one of them is mad
they must be all some sort of threat


They do not think a lot

they rather react
But they are not the people
like they used to claim

they are afraid to lose a little bit

afraid to lose some comfort
and afraid of any change

How dare you

how dare you

My grandmother was a war child

How dare you forget your own history 

and to claim to close the borders


and she is the one to realize 

those who throw a stone 

believe they own it

about

grandios sensibel Frankfurt, Germany

A songwriter since her early teens, Melissa Klingelhoefer (vocals, piano) was looking for a fellow musician to help compliment her dark, dreamy and cinematic songs. At the end of 2018 Josh Platman (double bass, cello, backing vocals) answered the call. Ten months later their debut album "Jugend" was recorded.
Prepare for a journey through stone forests where 1000 wolves chase away your youth.
