Silver (Lied von der Schönheit der Nacht)
© El.
I’m stepping out into the dark
the soft and the whispering wind
I raise my head up to the sky
to those millions of stars
in this very moment
I don’t look back at my house
not to the city , these illusions
reality is here and now

I open my senses and get to see
that the whole world is waiting for me
to discover the miracle
of the other side of the light

silver is the night
shiny is the dark
nothing so secure
just you and the silver man
together in a warm embrace
beyond all time
in silence

I’m in the middle of the dark
my naked feet touch the sand
this holy ground will carry me
and it’s still warm from the day
as I walk this desert land
under the moon and the stars
I smell the fragrance of the air
it’s rich of growth and promises

I open my senses and get to see
that the whole world is waiting for me
to discover the other side of the light

silver is the night
shiny is the dark
nothing so secure
just you and the silver man
together in a warm embrace
beyond all time
in silence

I’m coming home out of the dark
the moonlight shows me the way
one more time I see the sky
and I wonder where I belong
I’m only a visitor in this quiet, glowy land
I somehow was led to the ground
of my life and of life itself

I open my senses and get to see
that nature has so long wanted me
to find out the truth about
the other side of the light

silver is the night…
Feel
© El.
it’s not that I don’t sleep enough
but in those hours before
the world gets back in touch
strange images have been coming up
my dreams are getting heavier

when I wake up at first I’m fine,
then they come back
like movie scenes, still hard to grasp
so extreme you know you should be feeling it
a distant memory is all that’s left of it

when you dream what he did to you
when his hands are all over you
when you see but can’t see through
why don’t you feel, feel, feel?
where is the hate, the pain, the fear?
maybe to feel is to be done with it finally
maybe to feel is getting into it finally
why don’t you feel, feel, feel?
why don’t you feel, feel, feel?

I keep on wading through the marsh
against the wind and the suction without rest
it feels like I’m always fighting back the night
losing much of my strength on the way
for a simple life it might be enough
to live half the love, the joy, the pluckiness
I don’t want to be just halfway there
but still I am afraid I can’t decide it yet

when you dream…

maybe to feel is to be done with it finally
maybe to feel I getting into it finally
maybe to feel I giving room to it
why don’t you feel, feel, feel
