Verse

Night bank

Turn away now.

Go far places darling,

from the night bank.

On the shores of the aquamarine morning

meet me,

to pick up together, all the treasures

and all the bones washed up between diamonds and sand.

Fall now, my love, from the night bank.

Verse

When

So, one day when you fall into sleep

from worlds, from times, from the lives we lived,

let it be in my arms

so that I could plead

‘my love, my fellow

when you wander in the wind,

leave just one thread hung to me’.

Verse

Passing friend

I’m passing where the rain ends, I wish I could have explained

that it’s all a dream. We should close our eyes and lose it all,

scattering away, falling tall;

it’s the only way to shield our pearl from the slow, everyday.

But, between our damp conversations, all we got was ‘hello’,

sleep now old friend, it was a wonderful song.
