lyrics

I dreamed I spoke to a whale and she sang, and she sang to me.

And I kissed a long time friend and she swam, and she swam to me.

As I was a lonely diver in the middle of a cold, cold sea.

So I sang with my dear whale, and the bull sharks were staring at me.



As I rose, I was missing a finger and the coast was so far, far away.

I followed the smell of the ocean and penguins they guided my way.

I raised a hand with four fingers and I pointed to that heartless grey sea.

And I sang for my dear whale while the ice sheets were staring at me.



I slept on that whale’s back and the wind sang a lullaby to me.

And I fell from the back of that whale and she circled, and circled ‘round me.

And I was a lonely diver in the middle of a cold, cold sea.

So I sank with my dear whale while someone was dreaming of me.

about

Ben Hermanski Bochum, Germany

Ben likes to hold on to moments and give them away on stage. To you.
In his songs and the stories that he tells.

Ben Hermanski is an observer, a sensitive writer. A finder of melodies both engaging, catchy and familiar; a teller of stories both true and remote at the same time.

He keeps his eyes closed on stage, because these moments are for giving. To you.
