slide past me slowly, no, don’t wake me
I want to stay the king of this landscape
and in my dreams, that’s when I’m entirely
ruler of all that I have invented …(repeat)

and all too soon I’ll wake
into an ordinary day ...(repeat)

where is my castle, where my instinct?
everything vital fades away from me
I’ve led my dreams a merry chase, yes
I have looked cowardice in the face …(repeat)

when night is gone I’ll stay sleeping
because it’s easier than the day …(repeat)

o man, grasp me as you know best
I’m just sitting here, singing underneath my dress
hoping you might take yourself a hold of
any one of these threads… of these threads

just let me sleep… (let me sleep…)
just let me sleep… (just let me sleep…)
just let me sleep...
just let me sleep…
