La Nuit Infinie (The Infinite Night)

from Nuit Blanche by Marc Farre

lyrics

under the cloak of night
under the heavy light
under the bath of stars
under the song of mars

under a pilgrim sky
hundreds of years gone by
i lost my head i lost my bed
i lost the things we did and said
i lost the words i lost the song
so long…

under the pregnant light
the transfigured night
i lost the day i lost my way
i lost the things i used to say
i lost the time i lost the rhyme
i lost my mind

and i stand here today
beneath the infinite ray
and i am sighing, flying, trying
sighing, trying, dying
sighing, dying, flying
through the infinite night

good night...
good night...

i lost my head i lost my bed
i lost the things we did and said
i lost the day i lost my way
i lost the things i used to say
i lost the fall i lost the wall
i lost the call i lost it all
i lost the time i lost the rhyme
i lost my mind
