lyrics

White Night (Nuit Blanche)

I’m stuck here in the space, between one day and another.
It’s such a lonely place, between one day and another.
Where the river of dreams has run itself dry,
Where the promise of sleep was only a lie,
And I’ve fallen like Icarus out of the sky,
Between one day and another.

The clock has broken down, between one day and another.
The spring has come unwound, between one day and another.
I’ve tossed and I’ve turned and I’ve thought about you,
Rehearsed all my problems and found new ones too,
I’ve beaten my breast till its black and it’s blue,
Between one day and another.

And when I face the day, so full of one thing and another,
The nightmare fades away, what with one thing and another.
There’s this and there’s that and there’s you and there’s me.
There’s come and there’s go so that I never see
The daemon that’s waiting there so patiently,
Between one day and another.
