Line of Dialogue

En toe val ek alweer / And then I fell again

Die tyd was maar altyd te min / Time was never enough

Wat het ek gedoen om dit te verdien? / What did I do to deserve this?

Die donker het oor ons gekom / Then there was darkness

Gebruik die skerp kant / Use the pointy end

Ek het probeer om te stop maar dit was te laat / I tried to stop but it was too late

En hulle was nooit weer dieselfde nie / And they were never the same again

Dis wat sy gesê het / That’s what she said

Dit kan nie wees wat ek dink dit is nie / It cannot be what I think it is

Om nerens te kom neem te veel tyd / Going nowhere takes too much time

Een plus een is…drie? / One and one makes…three?

Nog net een stoot / Just one more push

Is dit veronderstel om daardie geluid te maak? / Is it supposed to make that noise?

Jy’t die regte ding gesê op die verkeerdste tyd / You said the right thing at the worst time

Weer? Hoekom Weer? / Again? Why again?

Ek dink daar’s iets op jou skouer / I think there’s something on your shoulder

Nog net een tree / Just one more step

Dis nie hoe n sirkel lyk nie / That’s not what a circle looks like

Ek het ‘n sekonde oor gehad / I had a second to spare

Dit klink makliker as wat dit lyk / It sounds easier than it looks

Die lewe was van hom/haar onteem / He/She was deprived of life
