Somewhere Between Waking And Sleeping Lyrics

Somewhere Between Waking And Sleeping by Charlotte Gainsbourg  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Somewhere Between Waking And Sleeping Without blindness, there is no sight
You'd see further if you'd only close your eyes

In unconsciousness, I can find peace
Inside prison walls I can find release
There is a place that I have seen
Somewhere between waking and sleeping

Down at the water's edge
Somebody waits for me
Is it too late for me
“It's never too late”, he says

Without blindness, there is no sight
(Without blindness, there is failure)
I'd see further if I'd close my eyes
(People gather by the river, they were talking)
Unblock the failure

There is a place that I have seen
Somewhere between waking and sleeping

Leaning over the side
Trailing my fingertips
Watching the water slip
Into the quiet night

Viewed from the wrong end of a telescope
I see myself, so far below

Still and silent, rest in peace
The thread unravels such merciful release
There is a place that I have seen
Somewhere between waking and sleeping

Now I can almost see
Figures upon the shore
He's gathering in the oars
Where are you taking me?
