lyrics

I remember well when your dark eyes
were emerging from the gloom of our staircase
and my frozen lips from the morning cold
were resting on your warm lips.

I remember well when your blue eyes
were laughing at the surprise
blooming from my hands,
and your words and hugs were consoling me
from the sullen weariness of my thoughts.

But the glass cracked and it drew
an arabesque of fissures above us.
Hugging above the oblivion, spirit and mind
lost their balance and fell down.

And now that I know
you’re an illusion,
I realize that maybe I didn’t love you,
but only a creation of my mind.

The shadows get longer,
reality loses its shape,
I feel a silence
that desperately cries,
while the sickness slowly advances,​

the sickness slowly advances...

It mixes with my blood, reaches my heart,
and my heart grows cold.
So cold…

Every time I walk
among the ruins of my devastated soul,
I see Love and Illusion holding hands.

And you, my fellow traveller,
do you have the courage to realize
that you love what you WANT and not what IS?

When the glass cracks and it draws
an arabesque of fissures above us,
hugging above the oblivion, spirit and mind,
like disgraced tightrope walkers,
lose their balance and fall down.

And now that you know
I’m an illusion
all your castles
crumble into dust
and drag you to the cliff’s end.

The shadows get longer,
reality loses its shape,
I feel a silence
that desperately cries
and roughly chokes my thoughts.

And now that we know
we are an illusion
all our castles
crumble into dust
and drag us to the cliff’s end.

The shadows get longer,
reality loses its shape,
I feel a silence
that desperately cries
and roughly chokes my thoughts.

Now,
once again,
I patiently put together

the pieces of glass,
and I reassemble
a glass bell of purity
above us.

I love you ‘cause I don’t know you
and your deepest thoughts
are an enigma to me.

And so they will have to stay,
so that not even once
can I tell you that I know you,
and one thousand times

that I love you.
