about

Composed by Angela James to her translation of "Paysages" by Charles Baudelaire.

lyrics

I want to write my verses lonely
Sleep in the sky like the astrologers do
Up near the tolling bells, close to the ceiling
Face in my hands watching the eternal skyline

And the chimneys, pipes and steeples rise so high
Like masts of dark shadow ships floating in the night
I wanna see the stars blink through the purple mist
And the lamps through windows glowing bright through the darkness

Threads of smoke the moon turns silver
Springs, summers and autumns pass but the winter drags on
My doors and shutters close, I am sheltered
I can build my castle by the dim candlelight

I wanna dream of blue horizons beyond me now
And gardens of weeping waterfalls that spill from the clouds
I wanna hear the birds sing from an endless song
And all the other childish things I love have come and gone

The riot beats at my windows tonight
And knocks at my doors but I am lost in the light
Of summering springtime with my will I can find
The sun in my heart makes the air warm in my mind

(c) 2016 Queen Anne Music (BMI)
