This Sadness

You’ll find my original post in German here: Diese Traurigkeit

 

Hear how the wind blows, how the air around us whispers that it knows

Can you feel me tremble? My yearning for you I can’t dissemble

The loneliness in your eyes, the longing in your voice

„Please let me be,“ they say, „I belong to no one but me

Please hold me tight, I want to share with you my plight“

This sadness that you enshrouds, that our togetherness beclouds

It speaks from the bottom of my heart. Does it make this us so inconceivable?

Why can’t I see your tears? Why not feel your innermost fears?

This agony in you, I know why you’re so afraid

„What if she understands? What if she with me drowns?“

I ask you this: what if it saves us, this us? What if the pain with it evaporates?

Wouldn’t we still be us? Wouldn’t you be you and I be me?

Imagine you could be free

Imagine you could love

Wouldn’t you also be loved?

This sadness that you enshrouds, that our togetherness beclouds

Though it weighs so heavily, it hasn’t yet defeated us
