Three Nights in May

  • Silent Cloud - At The End
    And now that everything is at the end I begin to see your eyes, your words, your loving to me drifting through my memory. I should have known this love would put me down, but I just couldn't see. Wish you were here to tell me why. The day we were just following our feelings was too beautiful to make us see where we were running to that rainy Friday night. I know today that it would have been wrong to say we mustn't do it. Love is not to be denied. Please free yourself of any feeling telling you you are to blame. Believe me if there was blame at you and me it was the same. We couldn't know before what would happen to us after. Wish you were here to understand. And now the time has come to try and forget this loving in our hearts. It will be hard because it seemed to be a new and lucky start. Just go your ways and I'll go mine. We'll just remain in friendship. Oh I wish she were here to help me go away. I wish she were here.
  • Silent Cloud - Last Exit
    Well, the sickened queen with movements of a wounded fly walks the garden path a faintly trembling butterfly. And the fallen king shows no emotions at the door. He hides his broken back, that‘s not what I was coming for. Well I came to his court to meet the man who bears my name. Like so many times before I have come here just in vain. Because our words won‘t meet nor are we meeting with our eyes. We‘re walking different streets and see two different worlds go by. Where will I be when I grow old? When all my tragedies unfold? Somehow wordlessly I sit beside you as we leave. The air is fresh and free. Your eyes are comfort in my grief. I never was a prince and there was no castle too. Was but a lonely boy out in this world 'till I met you. Who'll know our names we grow old? Where is our story being told?
  • Silent Cloud - Summer 76
    There's snow in my memory, winter has gone. Summer sun is sinking and Autumn will come. How long I don't know it's almost a year, there was passing a time full of tears. Autumn was leaving, Winter came cold, loneliness outside my window. Springtime came painting the sad grey wood green. I started to see things I never had seen. A new love came opening softly my eyes. Cold winter blown by the sun in the skies. Wintertime fading in my memory, grey leaving slowly these new days. And summertime sun shining into my mind. An answer deep in my heart that I would find. No one will blow now my answer away. I wait like a child for the first Autumn day painting the trees and the leaves in the wood. I want to walk with my love there. My love it is Summer, Winter has gone. Summer sun is sinking and Autumn will come. How long I don't know it's almost a year, there was passing a time full of tears. And I still remember the grey of these days. I am so glad it is over. I'll always remember the grey of these days. I'll always be glad it is over.
  • Silent Cloud - Mornings Bare Of You
    I have to take it as it comes, 'though it splits my heart in two. There's nothing I can do, just wait and see. A runaway at night and a morning bare of you. There is nothing I can do, just go my way. Here I am, and there you are. You are much too far from me to call your name. See me here I am, and there you are. You are much too far from me to find a way to you. Oh so tell me was I good? And if only good enough? Did I offend your senses? Did I say too much? This morning bare of you holds my naked soul in hand. And I cannot understand why there’s no way to you.
  • Silent Cloud - My Dreams
    My dreams in the neon lights of the city nights can't bring you back to me. My thoughts are floating out in vain. So I write your name into the mist on the window pane. Where are you now? Here I am. Can't you see, it's just reality. A world apart we might seem. And still I dream that we will meet again some time.
  • Silent Cloud - Boyhood Dreams
    A silent sky. A hundred shades of yellow fill the window pane as evening flies. Here I am, I drink the floating air, so mellow. I wait until this feeling dies. And this feeling dies. And I wonder who you are when you call me from afar and the world around is full of you. I will never understand why my life is in your hand and you are calling me away from here. I woke up late, felt the urge to tell you something I had seen inside my dream. But my words were lost in the abyss of my blue sleep within subconscious schemes of my boyhood dreams. And I live this life of mirth as if I had all time on earth. But I feel I´m running out of time. And in this theatre of the absurd, waiting for a soothing word, you just take my hand and lead me home. And if I'm true I did it all for you, at least I know I had you on my mind. Seventeen, such a lucky number tragic number, hidden in the river green of my boyhood dream. You make me feel that childhood joy as if I was a little boy. I wish I´d known you all those years ago. To make them sing and make them dance and bring them all another chance to wake up and fall in love again. Oh believe me you and I could paint that shimmer in their eyes and make this lousy world a place to be.
  • Silent Cloud - My Life
    In the glass of my window is a colour I've known since I’ve opened my eyes to a grey November morn’. See the faces I’ve known, taste the tears I have cried, feel all the feelings so true and washed away with the tide. And the words that I spoke and the rhymes that I’ve rhymed, the melodies coming and going in time. I look in the rain and there’s the colour of death so much closer to me than I’d ever have guessed. You are my everything, my life. You are my everything. Now I walk in the wind with my head in the skies. The leaves like the souls of dead children blow by. Feel the sun on my head, hear my steps on the road. Their rhythm says more than all the stories I’m told about this life and this journey day by day door to door, over continents drifting apart more and more. And who wonders my heart brakes apart moving on on a journey so far oh so far from being done? You are my everything. You are my everything, my life.
  • Silent Cloud - In Our Destiny
    Oh I remember you walking in the sun and the street echoing with your laughter. And I still can see you standing in the rain, telling me your pain, your teardrops on my hand. Was it all as it had to be? Was it planned in our destiny? Is it but a memory now fading away? Oh I was sleeping at your side. Oh how I miss your breath at night, your head on my shoulder. Do you remember us sitting on a bench on platform number ten of that late night railway station? Was it all as it had to be? Was it planned in our destiny? Is it but a memory now fading away?
  • Silent Cloud - Where We Belong
    And as the cold days linger on I store away my summer clothes, I shiver and I put the kettle on. I see the morning sun arise and an infinite tranquility surrounds my solitary paradise. As the clouds are moving on I think of all the many times throughout my life that I spent on my own. And somewhere far away you start your lonely day as I have started my day lonely without you. And I count the days until you will come home. And still it feels so very long until you’ll be back home where you belong. See me cry, just see me cry. Wipe those tears out of my eyes and share with me the entities that make up our reality. It’s not an easy one I know. Wherever we will go we will find a way back home. When I look back over the years all my life’s insanities so long long gone still fill my eyes with tears. The empty barren walls just echo my soliloquies today I’ll have to go it all alone. And then I think of how you came into my life so unexpectedly amazing big surprise. Gave me a home and I could let my soul run free, always knowing perfectly there’s a place waiting for me where I belong. See me fly, just see me fly and see those white clouds in the sky, like days in life away they blow, no one knows where they will go. Days without you lost and gone. However far we’ll run we will find a way back home. And as the quiet evening falls I’m shaking off my solitude, it’s just another day I spent alone. And the night is coming on, and not a person spoke to me since I have risen early all alone. And somewhere far away you end your lonely day as I am ending my day lonely without you. I see you count the days until you can go home and still it feels so very long until you’ll be back home where you belong. Oh yes it feels so very long until you’ll be back home where you belong. I kiss a drifting cloud for you, I’ll be waiting here for you where you belong. I kiss a drifting cloud for you here where I quietly wait for you where you belong.
  • Silent Cloud - Yes I Do
    Took a walk out in the sun, thought of all those years to come. Deep inside I felt so glad, so many plans were in my head. Here I sing for you my friend, may our daydreams never end. I hope one day you will see, daydreams are reality. How can I take you along when I just fly away. There's so much I'd love to tell you, don't know what to say. And all I want to say is I love you, yes I do, oh yes I do. Then again you are so far, and I don't know where you really are. Suddenly you're miles away, seems there's nothing left to say. How can I tell you how I need you and how I miss you just to see your eyes and talk to you when I feel blue. And all I want to say is I miss you, yes I do, oh yes I do. Took a walk out in the rain. There I think of you again. Oh I hope that one day you will see how easy it can be.
  • Silent Cloud - Still Around
    A lucky man I just made through it, and the world as I once knew it now is nowhere to be found. I raise my head to unknown faces, I'm walking unfamiliar places and in the end I´m still around. And the world's so good to me, it makes me laugh and makes me cry, makes my heart beat strong and fast. And the music takes me home, takes me right up to the sky where I win this life at last. I was longing for a life, just any life, and then I found too many lives to go and make a start. And at times I manage to control them and fill the cracks that run between them, but when I fail they fall apart. And when I don't know what to do I just listen to the wind like to a good old friend of mine. Hear the city sing its songs, noisy messengers to me that bring me answers wrapped in time. And my mind is sore with empty spaces where I treasure all those faces that were lost along the way. There's those who left to find their own light and those who gave up to the dark night who I miss until this day. And when the shadows come for me to ask me to the final dance I just smile and walk away. And I hum a melody so they will not catch up with me as long as there's a world to play. And a lucky man I just made through it, and the world as I once knew it now is nowhere to be found. I raise my head to unknown faces, I'm walking unfamiliar places and in the end I´m still around. And when I listen very hard I hear little Sarah´s voice humming through the placid air. And when I gently bow my head she will whisper in my ears princesses' secrets she would share. And a lucky man I just made through it, and the world as I once knew it now is nowhere to be found. I raise my head to unknown faces, I'm walking unfamiliar places and in the end I'm still around. I'm still around. I'm still around.
  • Silent Cloud - Lullaby
    And 'though you walk the street with me I’m all alone here in the rain. 'Though in my mind you speak to me I’ll never hear your voice again. I just hope you sleep alright and the angels sing their songs for you all night. Oh it took a while and now I know you won’t be back in time. The world has closed it’s book on you and written on in mine. And ‘though the evening sings your name, the world’s forgotten you all the same. Your name flies with the evening breeze, but I won’t find you in the streets. I just hope you sleep alright and the angels sing their songs for you all night. Oh it took a while and now I know you won’t be back in time. The world has closed it’s book on you and written on in mine. I just hope you sleep alright and all those angels sing their songs for you all night. Oh it took a while and now I know I wasn’t there in time. The world has closed it’s book on you and is writing on in mine.
