Silver Threads On A Loom

Lyrics: C. Jaiser / Music: A. Wennemann

Way after midnight.

I couldn’t find sleep, with you in my mind...

I think of your smile.

All the time...

 

My poems blaze up

When you look at me

Like if you could find

In my face the reason

For your open heart...

 

I dreamed of you.

We went for a break at the riverside.

A butterfly came into sight...

Its wings were beating like my heart

Sit on the loom,

It was a frame,

On which you’ve knotted

Silver threads...

 

 

CHORUS

Ah, linger on, thou art so fair!

I see the growing of a silky carpet,

Woven out of silver threads...

Ah, linger on, thou art so fair!

Two pair of hands,

Two pair of wings

Come close to each other...

 

 

Through a courtyard,

We went back,

There was your hand,

By accident

It touched mine...

 

Behold! In my dream

The colours I mean,

Silver threads for me

Woven razor-shar wit

With tenderness...

 

I dreamed of you.

We went for a break at the riverside.

A butterfly came into sight...

Its wings were beating like my heart

Sit on the loom,

It was a frame,

On which you’ve knotted

Silver threads...

 

 

CHORUS

 

Behold! In my dream

The colours, I mean,

And on the loom this butterfly...
