In the naked silence of the drowsy night
I won’t let the angry wind from the mountains
To steal you from me – or
Sting us hard in oblivion.
My heart is your inn-
I won’t let you abandon it!
I will welcome you with new possibilities.
And don’t you let me ever miss-
The lonely scent of your breath, tonight!
O you my city of forsaken dreams-
And infinite possibilities
Tell your dwellers-
Not to sob for tonight either-
Swallow your grief-
Let your enemies find you in our lyrics.
Oiii - the exhausted night-
You too tell the distant dawn to wait!
We are in no hurry, tonight!
