«Take a swirl»
featuring Tobias Stuber

(Tobias Carshey)

About the artist

Tobias CarsheyGoing all in. Follow your aspiration, wherever it may lead you – no compromises. No right, no more wrong. Befriend demons and pain, no matter how sombre the valley of darkness might be. Former strozzini front man Tobias Carshey grants a glimpse into his world of emotion. Vulnerable, ruthlessly candid and beautifully sad at the same time. “You have to let go, even if it hurts. This is the most honest, personal album I have ever recorded – and it feels so damn good!”
Carshey has found the perfect partner in crime in producer Luk Zimmermann (Lunik, MiNa, Kutti MC). Their musical landscape leaves space for calmness and unexpected creative moments, including creaking chairs and breathing sounds.  “Bye, bye” breaks out in a melancholy storm, gentle and powerful at once. Tobias Charsheys thrilling voice – relentless, but full of yearning. “It takes courage to be vulnerable. This is what fascinates me. It sums up life”.

Lyrics:

Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Don’t crush it while you’re dancing
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor

What happened? What did you do to me?
The room is spinning – boy I can hardly see
Somebody call a doctor – something is wrong with me
There’s a hole in my chest where my heart used to be

Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Don’t crush it while you’re dancing
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Don’t crush it while you’re dancing
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor

What happened? Somebody roofied me!
There it is still pumping, pumping to the beat
Somebody call a surgeon – put that thing back into me
Till then everybody stop moving and watch your feet!

Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Don’t crush it while you’re dancing
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Don’t crush it while you’re dancing
Tread lightly – don’t kick it out the door

You’ve still got pieces of flesh on your heels
Go ahead write your name on the dance floor
You’ve still got pieces of flesh on your heels
Do it like the stars in Hollywood and take a swirl
You’ve still got pieces of flesh on your heels
Go ahead write your name on the dance floor

You’ve still got pieces of flesh on your heels
Do it like the stars in Hollywood and take a swirl
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Don’t crush it while you’re dancing
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Don’t crush it while you’re dancing
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor

Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Don’t crush it while you’re dancing
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
Do it like the stars in Hollywood and take a swirl
Tread lightly – my heart’s still on the floor
