Het verhaal

Nearly Immeasurably Green cd-cover

Het laatste demo-album van Post & Pelzer. Een verzameling van bijna alle songs die nog niet waren opgenomen, en/of tijdens de "Bound to Be"-sessies zijn ontstaan.

Voor "Nearly Immeasurably Green" geldt nog meer dan voor de voorgaande demo-albums, dat nét goed niet goed genoeg is. Alles moet kloppen: de tekst, de akkoorden, de kleur, de sfeer. De songs op dit demo-album tonen veel meer mens dan muzikant, meer durf, meer power. Met de grote helden als voorbeeld was het een eer om een echte rooftop-song op te nemen.

Dit album kent een ware primeur: René Wassen als gastmuzikant op bluesgitaar. Het was een hele ervaring om iemand zo intiem te laten delen in de eigen muziek. Verder moest en zou een song niet langer de verplichte radiolengte van 3-minuten bereiken - nee. Een song is af als 'ie af is, en zo niet dan niet. Dat weerhield ons er trouwens niet van ook langere songs op deze schijf te vereeuwigen.

Pas toen al meer dan de helft van de geplande songs waren opgenomen, werd besloten om dit ons laatste demo-album te laten zijn. Deze beslissing gaf ons een extra stimulans om álles te geven, en ons meer dan volledig in te zetten.

Lyrics & luisteren

once you're born, you're growing up - no breaks along the way - and would you dare to want to stop - you'll throw your life away

"change or die" - that's what they say to me - but don't they see - i like the way i'm me?

once you leave, you can't come back - unless you're another man - but that don't mean you should change your heart - and that's because you can't

"change or die" - that's what they say to me - but don't they see - i like the way i'm me?

anything in nature walks a straight line - so let me just go on like this - don't tell me 'bout the things i'll miss - let me just go on and i'll be fine!

"change or die"...

their car sped off into the nght - and raced towards the morning light - when, just as it flew 'round the bend - was trying not to circumvent - you know, the lady on the billboard sees it all

it ran across this magic sign - that read 'down here for #9' - now you may think it took that turn - do not let it be your concern - you know, the lady on the billboard sees it all

lady, oh lady, i don't have time - maybe some other time perhaps - lady, oh lady, i don't have time - maybe some other time perhaps

if she could only talk to me - i'd bet, for all the world to see - her story 'd be a lonely one - that wouldn't end 'till day was done - because the lady on the billboard sees it all

when you tell her good-morning - or i kiss her good-night, i know the - lady on the billboard - will make it all look bright

at every single crossroad - as when i pass her by, i know the - lady on the billboard - will always keep an eye - 'cause the lady on the billboard sees it all

lady, oh lady, i don't have time - maybe some other time perhaps - lady, oh lady, i don't have time - maybe some other time perhaps

t + m: Post & Pelzer

maybe, when I wake up - maybe, when I sleep - maybe, when I kiss you - maybe, when I weep?

i'm in love, love, love - so in love, love, love - i'm in love with this world, i'm in love, can't you see? - love will now grow between this world and me - i'm in love!

i should see it when I'm open - every single day - maybe, when I leave you - or maybe in a sway

i'm in love, love, love - so in love, love, love - i'm in love with this world, i'm in love, can't you see? - love will now grow between this world and me - i'm in love!

i don't care where to go - when my world asks me so - and I know there will be - that one place of my dreams

guide yourself through this beautiful morning - guide yourself along this very first morning - the crack of the dawning - to a brand new life, a brand new life - for this world... and me

i'm in love, love, love... so in love, love, love...

baby, where have you been so long? - maybe, if you could hear this song - come right home, it's been so long

lady, it's been a while since then - baby, i became another man - come right home, it's been so long

have i never told you, it shows from the start? - or did i ever hold you too close to my heart?

on my knees i ask you, for you to leave me as though we've never met before - or stay

baby, it didn't work as planned - lady, please be part of mine, again - come right home, it's been so long

on my knees i ask you, for you to leave me as though we've never met before - or stay

he's too much man for only one woman - there's only one woman on his mind

d'r Mathieu sjteet te sjpringe, doa is mich wer get loos - dit huuske sjteet wer sjtampevol - de instrumente zind oetgepakt, 't beer dat is frisch getapt - de Bassantjes die hant lol!

Mathieu, Mathieu, Mathieu hat doësj - Mathieu, Mathieu sjteet druëg - kom hei, kom hei, kom hei mit dat beer - want beer dat hat d'r Mathieu geer!

twië gekke sjtond te zinge, wat zoue die noen bringe - breuzel, onzin, sjtomme kaal - d'r Mathieu weed umgekoch, die luu sjtond d'r trotsdem noch - maar ja, zoe is 't hei normaal!

Mathieu, Mathieu, Mathieu hat doësj - Mathieu, Mathieu sjteet druëg - kom hei, kom hei, kom hei mit dat beer - want beer dat hat d'r Mathieu geer!

he can't go anywhere - without having been already there

he's too much man for only one woman - there's only one woman on his mind

he knows his destiny - he'll be gone, probably

pretty girls are all the same - he loves them all, and who's to blame? - there's no sense in denying - they don't sense his prying eyes

in every day's life, they come his way - someone's love or wife, he cannot turn away - there's no sense in denying - they don't sense his prying eyes

no-one seems to know what thoughts are his - they never ever show, his total bliss - there's no sense in denying - they don't sense his crying eyes

i look out the window - she's sitting right there - her stare in the distance - her long blond hair

i'd like to go down and ask her: 'what's the matter, love?'

there's noone to talk to - but she doesn't care - as long as the sun shines - she keeps sitting right there

i'd like to go down and ask her - 'cause she's the one with the answer - one day I'll understand her, through: 'what's the matter, love?'

i look out the window - she's no longer there - where she might have gone to - i would be there

if only i would have asked her - if only i could have asked her - these mem'ries ought to last for - one more 'what's the matter, love?'

ladiless is loneliness, that's what it's all about - ladiless is loneliness, that's what it's all about - i wanna tell you all a story - 'bout what turns my world around

you don't know what i have seen, you'll see - i just ask: don't take it out on me - 'cause ladiless is loneliness - and that's all it's gonna be

ladiless is loneliness, just as one and one make two - ladiless is loneliness, just as one and one make two - except in this calculation - a simple equal-sign won't do

you don't care 'bout anything i say? - i don't mind at all, now, that's okay - 'cause ladiless is loneliness - as you'll know, some other day

'cause ladiless is loneliness - and that's all it'll be to me

some of them stay, some of them go - there even are those who are good at both - as why they do - ain't got a clue at all

once you think them figured out - they go ahead and turn about - and you're some kind - of left behind inside

friendship is a lonely word - when you're abandoned or have been hurt - by those around, you always built upon

friendship is a lonely word - when you're abandoned or have been hurt - by those upon you always could depend

try once more, then wait a while - to all the world you fake a smile - so all you do - is hope for two, or more

given them another chance - go back and forth, it's like a dance - though you may try - to get you by, they don't

friendship is a lonely word - when you're abandoned or have been hurt - by those around, you always built upon

friendship is a lonely word - when you're abandoned or have been hurt - by those upon you always could depend

there you are - what's left to do - is not just say - but admit it, too:

you're all alone - and on your own - again

no matter how long you take - whatever the moves you make - you see, in the end you'll break apart

life, ain't that pretty - you try to be strong - but you just can't hold on to your life

wherever your thoughts may go - go on, let your feelings show - you see, in the end you'll know just why

life, ain't that pretty - you try to hold on - but you'll find it all gone in your life

life, you'll find it all gone in your - life, you just can't hold on to your - life, you can't help but losing your life - there's no choice in choosing your life

life, you can't help but losing your life - there's no choice in choosing your life

can't you see that beautiful girl right up there? - did she smile using her loveliest flair? - she's so charming, beauty flows in her eyes - is she the secret, deep down within it's alive, so alive

oh, could i only, kiss her slowly - and whisper some words into her ears - heaven only, may decide if i will reach her tonight

get hold of that - shiver, into my world, beautiful girl - as soon as that shiver reaches my heart - love and compassion take part

morning comes, daylight is breaking through - an early thought, my daydream belongs to you - you're so tender; you lead me to the stars and the moon - don't you know, that my girl comes up to me soon, very soon

oh, could i only, kiss her slowly - and whisper some words into her ears - heaven only, may decide if i will reach her tonight

get hold of that - shiver, into my world, beautiful girl - as soon as that shiver reaches my heart - love and compassion take part

shiver, beautiful, beautiful girl - shiver, beautiful, beautiful girl - shiver, beautiful, beautiful girl - shiver into my world tonight

shiver...

she's in there - she's in there

always nearby, i don't know why - she's close to me now 's when - the earth meets the sky, yes

she's in there - she's in there

she's in the near vicinity - she is in close proximity - my thoughts are of doubtful usefulness - they're filled with painful truthfulness

but if you're - doing dishes, wishing wishes - hoping it'll all be fine

singin' songs about people gett'n out - tryin' it across the line - oeh, it's naturally, you can't help but see

she's in there - she's in there

she cannot be found, but still she's around - her wonders of beauty are truly profound, yes

she's in there - she's in there - she's in there

only a child - she was only a child

another day, another mourning - another life, another dawning - a little girl, hopeless and lost - the fear in her eyes will end when she dies - the tears on her face will dry anyway

you know the answer, you feel the hate - there is no freedom, there is no faith - a silenced cry, peace is for the few - no independence, but what could we do?

only a child - only a child - so helpless and mild - only a child

i wanna die, leave her in peace - please take my life, take all you need - please turn away from all that's done - turn around into the sun

let all the children just be free - let all the children just be free - let them climb into a tree - and see how nice it all could be

ever since i knew you - you've been on my mind - but not until i saw you, again - i never thought i'd mind

baby, you're on my mind - all day and every night - baby, you're on my mind - from and 'til the morning-light

out into the open - sung for all to hear - not a single word is spoken - and yet, it is so clear

baby, you're on my mind - all day and every night - baby, you're on my mind - from and 'til the morning-light

having talked to you - having learned that words are not all one says - knowing red from blue - is all i was left to do

looking forward to - makin' mem'ries no-one can take away - spend an afternoon - is all i'd like to do, 'd love to do

baby, you're on my mind - all day and every night - baby, you're on my mind - from and 'til the morning-light

t + m: Post & Pelzer

to-tomorrow you're going away - to-tomorrow you leave me to stay - to-tomorrow you pack up your things and just go

and i'm just playing my songs all day long without you - and i'm just laying around thinkin' what i should do - and i'm so lonely without you - yes, i'm so lonely without you - nobody could ever know how lonely i am, without you

to-tomorrow you're going away - to-tomorrow you leave me to stay - to-tomorrow you pack up your things and just go

and i'm just doing the things that i usually do - and i'm just fooling around and feeling so blue - and i keep thinking about you - my mind keeps thinking about you - everybody knows it all but i am the one without you

it's all about Julia, it's all about Julia - with her lovely eyes she's as nice as nice can be - it's all about Julia, it's all about Julia - with her wavy hair she is more than dear to me - Julia, where are you, Julia?

to-tomorrow you're going away - to-tomorrow you leave me to stay - to-tomorrow you pack up your things and just go away

when they came knockin' at my door - to find what's goin' on - were lookin' mean and all around - to know what's come and gone

let 'm in and stand aside - was all that i could do - did i break the law or two - or maybe three, today? - but go on and play - you can take it away from me

seems to be someone i love - who shift the blame on me - for the one i always was - or never tried to be

if sayin' sorry ain't enough - to make it up to you - you better tell me now, what would - you have me want to do? - but go on and say - i can take it okay from you

do i have to say "i'm sorry"? - cry it out into your face? - fall down on my knees before you? - lift my head and start to pray?

now that all is said and done - 'nd all the worries told - let's get on and have some fun - then make it ours to hold

leave it all and don't look back - then we will turn our way - speed along our awesome track - let's make some peace today - so, come on and say to me - is this how it's goin' to be?

pick a song and sing along - until the morning comes
