about

Composed by Annie Higgins to her translation of "Obsession" by Charles Baudelaire.

lyrics

Great old woods, you frighten me
Like cathedrals, roar like organs
rooms of endless mourning
rooms of endless mourning
meet the echo of profound

I hate you ocean!
Your tumult and your motion
A bitter laugh, a defeated man
full of sobs and insults
I hear laughter in the sea…
Laughter in it’s enormity

How you would please me, oh night
without these stars!
Whose light speak a known language
I seek the void, the black, and the naked

I hate you ocean!
Your bounding, endless motion
A bitter laugh, a defeated man,
full of sobs and insults

I hear laughter in the sea….
Laughter in it’s enormity
I hear laughter in the sea…
Laughter in it’s enormity

(c) 2016 Annie Higgins
