about

Nature in the City Berlin, Germany

Das Berliner Duo besteht aus Robin Sellin und Johannes Heger. Sie trafen sich 2009 auf der Massachusetts Avenue in Boston. Vor der Nummer 150. Sie verloren sich aus den Augen (aber nicht aus dem Sinn) als Johannes nach New York ging und Robin von der Einwanderungsbehörde zurück nach Deutschland geschickt wurde. Im Sommer 2013 fanden sie in Berlin wieder zusammen als Nature in the City. ... more

Track Name: Bound for the Hollow Sea
She is on the run
she's had enough
it's a lonely road
but she's kinda tough
she realized you gotta go on
no matter what
just gotta go straight
until you are better off

When the harlequins gather 'round
it's a pretty damn parade
and the heavy hearts are pumping
it's a hard way to the thrown
it's a waste to go back
take the carcass leave the bones

It's a life for...
and she's bound for the hollow sea
it's a life for...
and she's bound to be
oohoohoohoo

Life on the fast lane
it is blurry
and soon
she'll run out of gas
she's so caught up now
she's never turning back
and her future
is gonna be great

For when the harlequins gather 'round
it's a pretty damn parade
and the heavy hearts are pumping
it's a thorny way to the thrown
it's a waste to go back
take the carcass leave the bones

It's a life for...
and she's bound for the hollow sea
it's a life for...
and she's bound to be
oohoohoohoo
Track Name: You've Got a Strange Way
You've got a strange way
to deal with your pain
you go down hard
but you go wandering off again
old love was lost
and a new one, it was found
just a little too early
for the fox to lose his hound

Where you walk
you bring summer to the fall
where you leave
you take it all
but you sure don't see it
no, you can only be it

You've got a strange way
to speak your mind
the only words you say
are always caught behind rhymes
you sing like a bird
and I, I was building your cage
you sang of freedom
set off to go your way

Where you walk
you bring summer to the fall
where you leave
you take it all
but you sure don't see it
no, you can only be it
Track Name: Her Lullaby
She's got the mind of an artist
nothing is easily said
she can feel just like you and me
but it all stays in her head

She's got the voice of a storytelling fairy princess
gliding and soaring like a bird
and when she does what she does best
you can see every single word

Sing your lullaby
sing it loud across the sun
sing your lullaby
sing it loud for everyone

She's got the mouth of a kisser
can't pass her easily
you could be just another pair of lips
but than that's all you're gonna be

When she sings her lullaby
sings it loud across the sun
sings her lullaby
sings it loud for everyone

She's got the legs of a dancer
beautiful but never still
as you show her to the stage
you see her prominent will

Son of a gun
I am looking for rhymes
that take me back to the times
when an empty bottle meant another wine
oh what a lovely time

When she did sing her lullaby
sang it loud across the sun
sang her lullaby
...
amidst the crowd but for only one
Track Name: You Wanted Love
Say no more
it's understood
we've already said
more than we should
we had it all
but settled for less
just to become
a part of this mess

You wanted love
but you don't know what love is
you wanted peace of your mind
but it's not enough to be part of this game
more and more resigned

Many a turn
and most of them wrong
it's already hard
to know where we belong
once you decide to not say a word
I can feel it in my heart
someone will get hurt

You wanted love
but you don't know what love is
you wanted peace of your mind
but it's not enough to be part of this game
more and more resigned

I am sorry while
your heart breaks to pieces
I lost a bet on my own
I am sorry for
the time it takes to be there
will we reap what we've sown?

You wanted love
and I'll show you what love is
in time that will ease your mind
it's still not enough to be a part of this mess
more and more resigned
Track Name: Yesterday is a Good Day
Do you see this swirling smile
I carry around
just like yesterday
where does it come from, you might ask
and I'm sure the answer lies
in my recent past

Cause it's the pain
it's the pain
that has gone away
yeah it's the pain
it's the pain
that's gone away

But don't read to much into this song
I just like to sing
who knows or cares about tomorrow?
it'll be another day
and I will sing to you in ways
that come from my heart

Cause it's the pain
it's the pain
that has gone away
yeah it's the pain
it's the pain
that's gone away
Track Name: She Takes You Down
I used to know a kid
who used to write
beautiful poetry
but she could not get by

She likes to paint
Though her fantasy
is to weird for you to understand
though nice she could be

She takes you down
and ahead you stride
she shows you heaven
not knowing why
she knows how to love
but she decides
that she has had enough

She knows what there is to know
about the troubled mind
but she can't get you to
leave it behind

You wanna know now
what's on her mind
but all she does
is give you riddles
you wanna know
what's behind those eyes
but you get caught in the middle

She takes you down
and ahead you stride
shows you heaven
not knowing why
knows how to love
but she decides
but she has had enough
Track Name: Stone-Cold Heart
Who are you and are you trying to win
till they'll come to take you in
a restless man with a second-hand grin
is what you gamble for
and that's what you'll win

I thought I knew you
at least for a while
but playing guilty was your pastime
so I lay there and every night
I felt lonesome by your side

I can see your stone-cold heart
it is tearing me apart
lets try this from the start
it won't be long
until I see your stone-cold heart
it is tearing me apart
lets try this from the start
it won't be long

Now, I once heard bells on the hill
but either they're broken, or they are standing still
and you, you never tell
release me from this spell
or stab me if you will

For I can see your stone-cold heart
it is tearing me apart
lets try this from the start
it won't be long
until I see your stone-cold heart
it is tearing me apart
lets try this from the start
it won't be long

For what you've done
can't be undone
are you having fun?
I bet you do
Track Name: We Get By
When the morning greets you
With a soothing but disarming voice
just get up, don't think about it
just make use of your little toys

Imagine there were no possessions
like a good man once said
he told us a lot with his questions
but soon he was dead

We get by
we get by
we get by
till we die

And when one morning your genius is gone
visiting another mind
you get worried, but remember my friend
it was never yours, it was just borrowed for some time

So no one needs to be smug about
what he or she does or says
I know we're often lead to believe it
but no one is any better than the rest

We get by
we get by
we get by
till we die
Track Name: Do You Get it Now?
It was a kiss on the cheek
and two hands in one pocket
it's a mess you can see it
but you could not stop it
got nothing to do
with age or the will
the fish out of water
just cannot keep still

Do you
get it now?

He was forgotten
alone in this world
now, that wasn't true,
but that's how he felt
he banged his head into the wall
just to be heard

Do you
get it now?

He was drowning in bottles
got stuck in a sprawl
his wavering steps
got nowhere at all
and you just watch him fall

He was down at the bottom
couldn't fly anymore
his festering wings
are tired and sore
he's been like that
since you walked out the door

Do you
get it now?
