Dear Peri

‘Dear Peri’ was inspired by a tragic incident that happened this year in January, where two climbers tried to reach the summit of Nanga Parbat known as the “Killer Mountain”. Unfortunately, the Polish climber Tomasz Mackiewicz didn’t make it, due to his condition. The other French climber Elisabeth Revolwent, left him in safe place and said they would come back for him, but the snowstorm was too strong. I found out about the story after it happened and it made me think about it how must be dying alone in this condition. In an interview with Tomasz, he described a legend told by locals about the ghost of a woman named Peri who was on the mountain and could help you or harm you. The song is my interpretation of Tomasz’s letter to his beloved mountain and Peri as he slowly departs from his body. People called Tomasz a fool for risking his life,  which is where the lyrics “Don’t call me fool” came from. Tomasz’s body hasn’t been found till this day.

Lyrics:

Don’t want to wake up darling
From your fateful dream
But your cold blooded kisses
Slowly drowning me

You wear what you want
You do as you please
Don’t call me fool
Don’t call me fool
Just me and you

Bright pale face
You beauty will always be
With white coat
Laying over me

You wear what you want
You do as you please
Don’t call me fool
Don’t call me fool
Don’t call me fool
Don’t call me fool
Just me and you
Just me and you

You wear what you want
You do as you please
