Recitative To The Moon

Moonlight!

A lantern of pale eternity

Slowly arises

The only witness to my journey

RecitTo The Moon

All Alone

All alone I was walking through the meadows

All alone I was drifting by the shore

But the seabed was dry

Made a desert by the tide

And the flowers were torn by a storm

 

All alone I was searching for a melody

All alone I was searching for a song

But a cold wind arose

And it stole away the notes

‘Til the nighttime lay void of all sound

 

Listen to the music within you

Listen to the beat of your heart

Let your spirit go…

You’ll never be alone anymore

 

All alone you were waiting for discovery

All alone you were playing in the dark

Then the whispering wind

Lent you refuge on her wings

Now you’re here, she has brought you to me

 

Listen to the music within you

Listen to the beat of your heart

Let your spirit go…

You’ll never be alone anymore

 

As long as you’re breathing

There’s a story to be told

And now I’ve found you

 

Listen to the music within you

Listen to the beat of your heart

Let your spirit go…

You’ll never be alone anymore

All Alone

The North Wind And The Troll

 

The smallest creature ever seen

Little troll so sad and grey

He sat upon his house of stone

And dreamt about the world beyond

 

“I wish someone could take me away”

The Northern wind one autumn day

Came flying by his windowpane

“Oh Northern wind, oh help me please,

I’m stuck here in this stony heap!”

 

And she whirled around as she said:

 

Come, follow me

To where the river meets the sea

Come fly with me

Over mountains and valleys

Where the Ancient is present

In the very air you breathe

As we dance in the flower fields

They fly together ever since

The little troll upon her wings

And so forever since that day

The north wind bears a streak of grey

 

And she whirled around as she said...

 

Come, follow me

To where the river meets the sea

Come fly with me

Over mountains and valleys

Where the Ancient is present

In the very air you breathe

I can show you lands

where the summer is never over

There we can visit on the vision of a dream

As we dance in the flower fields

North Wind & Troll
Embrace The Cold

Embrace The Cold

When the sun disappears beneath the ocean

And every color will slowly fade to blue

 

These are the dark days

These are the dark times

They’re unlike everything you had been told

I watch your dark gowns unfold into Evernight

I bid you welcome

‘Cause I embrace the cold

 

Through the clouds a single ray of moonlight

The stars entwining silver threads above

 

These are the dark days

These are the dark times

They’re unlike everything you had been told

I watch your dark gowns unfold into Evernight

I bid you welcome

‘Cause I embrace the cold

 

These are the dark days

These are the dark times

She said,

“They’re unlike everything you had been told”

I watch your dark gowns unfold into Evernight

I bid you welcome

‘Cause I embrace the cold

Wither and Rust

Wither And Rust

Each serpent has to shed its skin

Or else, the reptile risks to choke

And all corruption held within,

one fleeting moment, shows  

 

Hatred

May darkness enclose you

Envy

May old age erode you

May your memory be covered by cobweb and dust

May your memory wither and rust

 

Farewell to thee, unfaithful soul

Farewell to thee, begone!

Your words are like a desert wind

You’re howling at the void alone

 

Hatred

May darkness enclose you

Envy

May old age erode you

May your memory be covered by cobweb and dust

May your memory wither and rust

 

Helpless victim of your own lies

Jump right into the lion’s mouth

Cast your gauntlet and you will see

How I land upon my feet

 

Hatred

May darkness enclose you

Envy

May old age erode you

May your memory be covered by cobweb and dust

May your memory wither and rust

 

“Acclinis falsis animus meliora recusat”

Dream of Daylight

Dream Of Daylight

Hush, hush, go to bed

No more stories now

Lay down your head, hush

Drift away

Night has fallen

But you can dream of daylight

 

The beauty of every summer evening’s haze

The frailty of every rainbow we would chase

Do you remember how we only lived to play?

It’s still there for you

If you just close your eyes

 

Hush, hush, stay awake

No more words, my love

Lay down your head, hush

Slip away

Darkness is fallen

But you must dream of daylight

 

The beauty of every summer evening’s haze

The frailty of every rainbow we would chase

Do you remember how we only lived to play?

It’s still there for you

If you just close your eyes

Breathe In The Night

Look up to the sky

Black clouds passing by

A lonely satellite lights up the night

What I’m looking for

The warden of my soul

Tales of ancient love

Beyond Orion

 

Feel the world revolve tonight

Breathe in the night

 

Creatures of the night

Creeping up in sight

Winged, they all take flight

to dance in the meadows

They never realized

Where this secret garden lies

Silent and disguised,

Bathing in starlight

 

Feel the world revolve tonight

Breathe in the night

Breathe in the night

Dance Of The Fairies

A wanderer, one autumn morn

Came riding by a field of thorns

As mist around him rose and fell

With voices, soft as silver bells

 

“Come dance with us! Come dance”, they sang

And tied him with their silver bands

“Come dance with us! Come dance”, they said

“Within our circle now you must stay”

 

“Oh maidens fair, I cannot stay

Oh keep your bands, for I must away

I cannot stay with you”, he cried

“I must away to meet my bride”

 

Around, around the circle warped

Seven times and then seven more

Around, around the circle ran

Twenty-one cycles of the moon

And twenty-one cycles of the sun

 

A wanderer, one autumn morn

Came riding by a field of thorns

Alas, but as he walked away

His hair had all but turned to grey

Dance of the fairies
Aeternam Vale

Aeternam Vale

Aeternam vale

Pulvis et umbra sumus

Nascentem morium

Sic transit gloria nostri

 

Där är du

På väg att lämna oss

och här är jag

För nån måste bli kvar

 

Tystnad fyller alla vrår

Tomhet kommer,

Tomhet går

 

Dina spår

över den vita drivan

där du gått

Än dröjer minnet blott

 

Tystnad fyller alla vrår

Tomhet kommer,

Tomhet går

 

Aeternam vale

Pulvis et umbra sumus

Nascentem morium

Sic transit gloria nostri
