Poem By Roger Bewman
Why does the song have to be sad?
Suddenly you'd think it was ripped out of your heart
and this moment that I am filled with happiness
crept up to my lips and drowned me
Look out cause it’s here
I love you but have no voice to express it
And this longing is unbearable
Melting with pain cause I also feel
The road we are heading is impassable
Be brave you tell me
How can I forget her fair hair
the sand, waterfalls bathing her
While she was leaning upon me a thousand kisses
diamonds which she offered
I’ll go even if it turns out bad
In which ecstasy which magic dance
could this heavenly creature have been born?
From which distant star is this light
that is hidding in her two eyes?
and me, the lucky one to have seen it
In her gaze a tiny sky
Lighting, clouds unfolding
But when the night falls, light flows gently
an August's moon rises
and shines onto my inner prison'
