I Don’t Want To Live Forever

Over a long wall, crawling with weeds and flowers of all sorts
A mystic insidious vibration travels through, without any support
Into green waves, my mind merrily rises with the sun to sing
Sing O my soul, sing about our life, sing about this mighty king
For I really don’t want to live forever, I just want to rest in peace

For cock’s crow, and oceans flow, surely tonight loves tomorrow
And the sweetest memory, upon the roughest stones’re still hollow
Another glorious day’s been pushed away, so silently I lay to pray
Emotional like a stream, my beautiful dream’s slowly turning gray
So I really don’t want to live forever, I just want to rest in peace

As frightful as a midnight rain, all I can do is complain, O darkness
Won’t you let me dance to a beloved of nature’s tunes, with tartness
For my strengths are the strangest, and the path I walk, unknown
Falling, and falling, deeper and deeper, this emotions pierce to the bone
And I really don’t want to live forever, I just want to rest in peace

Hope, and no longer cry, a silent world whispers into my ears
Hallucinations of men taken into the distant dark, ah my fears
What love will keep me warm, the night’s are too cold, O, February
As am rolling, round and round, days of my life passing in a hurry
So I really don’t want to live forever, I just want to rest in peace

The past comes back, and I remember all my glamorous mistakes
Walks upon the beach side, and my reflections on dried up lakes
Arrgh, tonight, moonlight’s got to share my dreams with the wind
For once again, I’m thinking happiness is impossible without sin
So I really don’t want to live forever, I just want to rest in peace

Slowly my breath freezes, as I stand and knock at eternity’s door
Behold, a destiny is written in the stars, so I reach out like a dor
Let me, please let me have just a moment of this lifetime to myself
A shadow’s voice in my earlobe, the purpose unclear from the shelf
For I really don’t want to live forever, I just want to rest in peace

O, turning, turning, every single thing in this whirlpool of a universe
The dark night’s time for a good sleep, but misunderstood, cursed
Because for me, I found me a wife, and to another he lost a whore
I will fight no more against the rain, cause tears lubricate our core
So I really don’t want to live forever, I just want to rest in peace

Creep in, dear time, I waved to you from a thousand miles away
For I’ve found my course, tarrying North, night and day, in a stray
Alone with the wind as companion, I think of life, and of my lover
Ah, by this days painfully growing upon me, someday all’ll be over
So I really don’t want to live forever, I just want to rest in peace.

It Is Heaven That Knows Me

It is heaven that knows me
So I do not hate against thee
And I do not question the universe
So I pursue on earth, a way to quench
the thirst
It is heaven that knows me
So whatever I want, I can be
And I do not worry about a war
Because it’s the almighty that keeps a
body warm
It is heaven that knows me
So I do not curse even the poisonous
weed
And I do not grumble against
humanity
So I work hard daily, to take care of
the family
It is heaven that knows me
So whatever happens, I do not worry
or grieve
And I do not murmur against wrong
or right
Because it’s mankind that shines the
most high’s light.
