Dream



I dream I'll meet you deep deep down
The deepest point on Earth, Mariana Trench, ocean bottom
Between Nanga Parbat, K 2 and Everest,
The crest of the world, there you'll be my banquet guest
Where nothing more can impede my vision
When you com I'll see you coming from the world's margin
Here there's nothing of interest
The ruins of Atlantis just
But of you not a trace
I don't think you're coming anymore
We missed each other in our dreams
You dream me, I you
Don't worry, I won't wake you
Before you wake up yourself
Across the ice towards the North Pole is where I'll expect you
Will be standing on the axis
From Tierra del Fuego in hard dream labour to the pole
There everything will revolve just around us
The Pole Star directly above me
This is the pole I'll wait here
Only I cannot see you cmoing from anywhere for miles around
I'm waiting at the wrong pole
We missed each other in our dreams
You dream me, I you
Don't worry, I won't wake you
Before you wake up yourself
Please, please don't wake me
Only as long as I dream do you exist...
Enlist in slumber on a ship
Course: Eldorado, Punt, that's your home
Wait on the coast, look on the horizon
Until I at last see your sails there
But the captain is always drunk
And mostly down below deck
I can't steer this ship in my wildest dreams
On a riff it springs a leek
In the North Sea it then sunk
An iceberg drives me back
I think I'll be waiting for long
Punt stays undiscovered
We missed each other in our dreams
You dream me, I you
Don't worry, I won't wake you
Before you wake up yourself
You dream me, I you
Don't worry, I'll find you
Before you wake up yourself
Collared in a doze I'll grab you
And pull you towards me
For you dream me, I you
I dream you, you me
We dream each other awake

Oui. Ca m'a fait ça au début.
Et à présent, définitivement, j'aime.
Le texte est géant.
Et en allemand, super beau à entendre.
