Recorded at home in Spandau
Mastered by Alain Paul
Lyrics by Maike Novák
Music by Pallet of Leaves


Coumba mon amie
You look at me
And in your eyes
I see the island in the sea
The island in the sea 
Is where you wanna be

When endless seeming nights
Are eating from your heart
And skeleton-like trees 
Are dancing in the dark
When sweet talk dawns in filthy misery
And life just feels like a numbing agony

I wanna take your hand Coumba and bring you home
Where wind and water meet where you feel light and loved 
When sand touches your feet  Coumba ah Coumba
Where wind and water meet  Coumba ah Coumba
Where you feel light and loved  Coumba ah Coumba
When sand touches your feet 

Remember anytime
You start to suffocate
The ocean's air
Your soul will relocate 
And we'll sit by the fire, the moon a-shining bright  
The birds and the frogs, are a-singing in the night 

I wanna take your hand…
