Es ist nicht immer leicht, das Gleichgewicht zu finden zwischen Ruhe und Arbeit, Frieden und Antrieb.

One Cup of Tea

Musik und Text: Felix Olschewski

There is a haven away from home
where to water lies still, not a breeze
sometimes I hide there and wander alone
come join me, let us make time freeze

Let us sit there and breathe and stare at the sky
while the hairs on our skins feel the wind pass by
I love when we listen to the silence and share
a moment of beauty without worry and care

This beautiful day we can create
where happiness is a piece of cake
embrace the moment and drink with me
just this one, one cup of tea

“But,” you say as you frown
“In those waters we might drown!
Our course is set, did you forget
we must reach dry ground?”

“My dear,” you reason in your way
“This path you name will lead us astray!
Come with me and leave it be
just this one, one cup of tea”

But today I will rest on my oar
this tyranny I won’t have no more
today I insist: we must not resist
the call to explore

We shall hike among the flowers and bees
and count those daisies for as long as we please
let us pause and watch so we won’t regret
when the darkness comes and the sun has set

This beautiful day we can create
where happiness is a piece of cake
embrace the moment and drink with me
just this one, one cup of tea
