There are vampires in the park Małgorzeta
But I only hear the sound of dancing bears
They're shooting stars in Warsaw, Małgorzeta
Małgorzeta, do you care?

Do you believe that anything
That I could say would sort your life out?
What's the difference?
Could you trust anybody
With your heart except yourself?
Well, what's the difference?

Between sunsets and dawn
Kings, queens and pawns
Goldfish and clowns
Between what's right and wrong
Can a love still grow strong
What's the difference?

There are werewolves in these streets, Małgorzeta
But you only hear me howling at the moon
There's betrayals in the tarot, Małgorzeta
Is it me or is it you?

Do you believe that everything I say is really true?
Well, what's the difference?
Don't you think everything's against us
That there's much too much to lose
Well, what's the difference?

Could you see everything I should have been
And everything I could be
What's the difference

Between sunsets and dawn
Kings, queens and pawns
Goldfish and clowns?
Between what's right and wrong
Can a love still grow strong?
What's the difference?
What is the difference?

There are vampires in the park, Małgorzeta
But I only hear the sound of dancing bears
They're shooting stars in Warsaw, Małgorzeta
Małgorzeta do you care?

I know you believe that
Everything will work out alright
Hm, what's the difference?
But is it a love or is this a life I need?
That's the difference

Between sunsets and dawn
Kings, queens and pawns
What's the difference?

Between goldfish and clowns
Can a love still be found
Well, what's the difference?
What is the difference?

Between playing away
And playing at home
Well, what's the difference?
What is the difference?

What is the difference?
Between holding your own
And holding her close?
Well, what's the difference?
What is the difference?
What is the difference?

Well, what's the difference?
Between holding your own
And holding it close?
Well, what's the difference?

That is the difference
That is, that is, that is, that is
That is the difference
That is

Between sunsets and dawns
Kings, queens and pawns

Goldfish and clowns


Live version (Poznan 1999)

This is a song about sex and vodka
And drinking, and sex.
It's called Goldfish and Clowns.


There are vampires in the park Małgorzeta
But I only hear the sound of dancing bears
They're shooting stars in Warsaw Małgorzeta
Małgorzeta do you care?

Do you believe that anything that I could say would sort your life out?
What's the difference?
Could you trust anybody with your heart except yourself?
Well what's the difference?

Between sunsets and dawn
Kings, queens and pawns
Goldfish and clowns
Between what's right and wrong
Can this love still grow strong
What's the difference?

There are werewolves in these streets Małgorzeta
But you only hear me howling at the moon
There's betrayals in the Tarot Małgorzeta
Is it me, or is it you?
