Was it a dream? ‘cause I fell asleep at my wedding
Here we are with our gifts on par with the house

Now that I’m yours to keep
I’ll never play trumpet again

Then she plugged in every electric gift from a friend, I had to get my generator
But it overloaded and the generator explode and knocked my teeth out

Now that I have no teeth
I’ll never play trumpet again

Never again

The long night -
What do I bring to our knot,
When all that I have is my intention?
I am an orphan, at least I feel that way
But it is hard for me to explain

But oh, I’ll never play the trumpet again

The long night
Long after the mystery is spent
And all I have is the fragment of my youth
And all of my innards cry for the solitude I yearn
Well it is hard for me to explain

Oh no - I’ll never play the trumpet again
