Don’t be afraid my love,
Of the silence that invites to a lonely walse,
Inside my silence I stretch my arms, too,
And inside my heart the walls crumble,
And the abyss fall…
Don’t be afraid from this dream, the fearful awake,
The screams of death in the nights and days,
Inside your soul look for me, that’s where I am,
A little light fighting the shadows…
Don’t be afraid my love,
Of this silence that invites you to a lonely walse,
In the silence, my arms and my heartbeat you’ll find,
Together we are in this crazy walse…
You didn’t come…
The waite got cold on the silent windowsill,
On the fragile shoulders froze the rime,
The foggy warmth of the dreams…
It waited for the day and saw it off, numb,
Until the eyes grew dark,
The road and the night
Became one inside of them…
From the dark well
The dreams drank the disappointment,
Fake turned out to be the
moon’s lake,
An endless hole of emptiness…
The clouds whitened my hair with their grey silence,
On the endless escapes…
Seasons that change over my shriveled skin,
Again on the road,
Like an aged migrant traveller…
Cause, my heart doesn’t obey me,
And rises over the reasons,
Sending its beat to you while trembling,
A lightening that keeps burning and dying out from pain,
While carrying itself through darkness and rain…
And I try to bring a light with my eyes,
To your sky, that lays wounded by the storms,
A word, a new hope to give to the lips,
To the eyes that wait for me to return…
