Probenmitschnitt 11/2015: voc Dirk, guit Dirk, bass Udo, drums Georg

Watching the slow hand revolve on the face of time
In search of rest
Adding those moments I thought I was miles away
Minutes – at the best

Still there’s a long way to go for the reveille
And line up for a day in office
Hundreds of chances of falling asleep at last
I’d hate to miss -

Almost invisibly lifting her chest again –
She’s sound asleep
Somewhat exhausted from the sympathy it needs for me
He dropped off to sleep

Oh, how I envy her this sweet golden slumber
Such as makes the darkness brief
I’d readily part with the most precious thing I have
For this kind of relief

Desperately longing for a sweet golden slumber
Such as makes the darkness brief
I’d readily part with the most precious thing I have
For this relief
