Il est un chemin
Masque qui s'efface
A la lisière
Des cyprès argents

Je lasserai ce soir
Les sirènes envoûtantes
Et les astres m'y guider
De leur triste chant

Mes parcelles non humanes
Se mélent au cœur
De l'eau bleue qui sommeille

Dans les jardins de minuit
Où s'est arrété le temps

Instinct spirituel
Donne-moi la force
Les rigueurs de ce monde

Rêves éveillés
Donnez-moi le courage
D'accueiller pleinement
La lumière autant que l'ombre

Dans les jardins de minuit
Les arbres s'élancent
Vers des lunes recueillies

Dans les jardins de minuit
Des géants s'élèvant
Au vent déchirant la nuit

The Midnight Path

There is a
masked path that fades
At the edge
of the silver cypresses
Tonight I will tire of
the captivating sirens
And the stars guide me there
With their sad song
My non-human plots
mingle in the heart
of the blue water that sleeps
In the midnight gardens
where time stood still
Spiritual instinct
Give me the strength
to embrace
the rigors of this world
Give me the courage
To fully welcome
The light as much as the shadow
In the gardens of midnight
The trees soar
Towards collected moons
In the gardens of midnight
Giants rising
In the wind tearing the night

    Song Meaning

    The lyrics describe a hidden path at the edge of silver cypresses, where the protagonist leaves behind alluring sirens and lets the stars guide him with their sad song. In the midnight gardens, time has stopped and there are non-human parts mixed within the sleeping blue water. The protagonist asks for spiritual instinct to help embrace the harsh realities of the world and the courage to fully accept both light and darkness. The trees reach towards collected moons and giants rise in the tearing wind of the night.

Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

This is one of my favorite songs.

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
