Nu hoef je nooit je jas meer aan te trekken
En te hopen dat je licht het doet
Laat buiten de stormwind nu maar razen in het donker
Want binnen is het warm en licht en goed
Hand in hand naar buiten kijken waar de regen valt
Ik zie het vuur van hoop en twijfel in je ogen
En ik ken je diepste angst

refr.
Want je kunt niets zeker weten en alles gaat voorbij
Maar ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof in jou en mij
Ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof in jou en mij

En als je 's morgens opstaat ben ik bij je
En misschien heb ik al thee gezet
En als de zon schijnt buiten gaan we lopen door de duinen
En als het regent gaan we terug in bed
Uren langzaam wakker worden, zwevend door de tijd
Ik zie het licht door de gordijnen en ik weet
Het verleden geeft geen zekerheid

refr.

Ik doe de lichten uit en de kamer wordt nu donker
Een straatlantaarn buiten geeft wat licht
En de dingen in de kamer worden vrienden die gaan slapen
De stoelen staan te wachten op 't ontbijt
En morgen word ik wakker met de geur van brood en honing
De glans van 't gouden zonlicht in jouw haar

En de dingen in de kamer, ik zeg ze welterusten
Vanavond gaan we slapen en morgen zien we wel
Maar de dingen in de kamer zouden levenloze dingen zijn zonder jou

En je kunt niets zeker weten want alles gaat voorbij
Maar ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof in jou en mij
Ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof in jou en mij
En je kunt niets zeker weten want alles gaat voorbij
Maar ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof in jou en mij
Ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof, ik geloof in jou en mij

    Avond (means Evening) Boudewijn de Groot

    Now you don’t have put on your jacket again,
    And hope that your light is working,
    Let the storm wind blow in the darkness,
    Because insight it’s warm, light and good,
    Hand in hand looking outside where the rain is falling,
    I see the fire of hope and doubt in your eyes,
    And I know your deepest fear


    Because you could not know for sure, and everything is endless,
    But I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe in you and me.
    I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe in you and me.

    And if you wake up in the morning, i will be with you,
    And maybe, I have already set a cop of thee,
    And when the sun shines outside, we will go for a walk in through the dunes,
    And if it rains, we will go back in bed,
    We take hours for waking up slowly, floating thru the time,
    I see the light thru the curtains, and I know,
    The past does not give any guarantee



    I turn the lights off, and the room is getting dark,
    A streetlight outside gifs a little light,
    And the things in the room are getting friends who are going to sleep,
    De cheers are waiting for breakfast,
    And tomorrow I would wake up with the aroma of bread and honey,
    De shining of the golden sunlight in your hair

    And the things in the room, I wish them good night,
    This evening we are going to sleep, and tomorrow we will see
    But the things in my room would be lifeless with out you

    And you can’t be sure of it, because nothing least forever,
    But I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe in you and me
    I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe in you and me
    And you can’t be sure of it, because nothing least forever,
    But I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe in you and me
    I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe in you and me

    General CommentThe song is very special to me, it reminds me about my (ex-)girlfriend. I can only tell what the song means to me, because every song means something else for everyone else.

    Now we are together, we don’t’ have to separate, because you live with me. I see your deepest fear, it’s the fear of loosing me because I’m not more in love with you, or you are not more in love with me. The fear is there because we know from our live-experiences; nothing least for ever. So you can’t know it for sure that we will stay with each other, but I believe in you and me together.

    With you I live in a Paradise, and our only fear is to lose each other. The Paradise would mean nothing to me without you, but I don’t have to fear, because I believe we are made for each other.

    Funny about the song is that there is been singing about typical Dutch things, like hoping your bicycle lamp still works, if you’re going home. Or walking true the dunes, or looking to rain (it rains very much here).

    The link I have made is. I also lived in a Paradise, and I also had 1 fear, to lose my girlfriend, and the mean things of fear is: The things you fear most, they happen to you. So I think this is a lesson: don’t fear, just believe in the things you want and I would happen.
