"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Luna Amara / The Bitter Moon – Somn / Sleep

“somnul tau e greu dar ochii-ti sunt deschisi
rosie sta luna in pumnii tai inchisi
cauta ca orb sa dai de ea
iarba buna poate-i iarba rea…
somn a moarte tanara-n al tau pustiu
ard uitari in care nu mai pot sa fiu
soare nou s-arunc in ochii tai
soare nou sa arda pasii rai

tot ce esti e tot ce ai
n-ai sa pierzi dac-ai sa-ncerci sa dai

somn pe mare somn in leganat de vant
daca tu esti doar al tau eu cine sunt
greu e gandul vanat pe sub ochiul bland
am ramas sa fiu doar cine sunt
somn a moarte tanara-n al tau pustiu
ard uitari in care nu mai pot sa fiu
soare nou s-arunc in ochii tai
soare nou sa arda pasii rai

tot ce esti e tot ce ai
n-ai sa pierzi dac-ai sa-ncerci sa dai”

“your sleep is heavy but your eyes are open
red stands the moon in your closed fists
looking to find her like a blind man
the good grass is maybe the bad grass …
sleep of young death in your young desert
oblivions in which I cannot be anymore are burning
new sun let me throw in your eyes
new sun to burn the bad steps

all you are is all you have
you will not lose if you’ll try to give

Sleep on the sea, sleep rocked by the wind
if you are only yours, who am I
heavy is the purple thought under the mild eye
I am left to be just who I am
sleep of young death in your young desert
oblivions in which I cannot be anymore are burning
new sun let me throw in your eyes
new sun to burn the bad steps

all you are is all you have
you will not lose if you’ll try to give”
