A good friend of me died last year. He loved beaches, beer and cocktails. So instead of saying that he passed away, I found it more consoling to see him in an island paradise setting. Far away, with a one-way ticket and a pretty authentic New-Orleans-funeral brass arrangement.

Ein guter Freund von mir ist vor kurzem gestorben. Er hatte ein Faible für Urlaube am Meer, Bier und Cocktails. Anstatt zu akzeptieren, dass er ganz einfach tot ist, habe ich ihn auf eine Reise auf eine entlegene paradiesische Insel geschickt. Ohne Rückflug-Ticket, dafür mit klassischer New-Orleans-Funeral-Begleitung.
[Norbert Wally, The Base]


Let’s say you went to the beach
Of an island you always wanted to see
It’s pretty far out of reach
And you had to go there alone

Let’s say you hadn’t passed away
You just moved on to your next destination
Out in the pacific sea
You’ll rest in peace ‘cause you forgot your phone

Let’s say you went Honolulu
And there’s no way we can call you
Let’s say you went Honolulu
And you won’t be coming back

Let’s say you’re happier there
You let the sun shine on your tired bones
And hide your face in the shade
Of your favorite palm tree right next to the sea

Let’s say you want to stay there
And have a taste of all the tiki cocktails
I heard they brew their own beer
And there’s nobody around to fool you

Let’s say you went Honolulu
One day I’ll come out to stay with you
Although they say Honolulu
Is nothing like it used to be
