spuren im schnee führen an dir vorüber
frostklare winde im mondenschein
endlose stunden voll gläsernem schweigen
wachst du beharrlich in tiefer nacht



bricht dann die stille
zerfließt ein verschlafenes, karges verlangen
leise verweht sich der nebel
endlich voller licht die welt



tiefgrüne wiesen, schattenkühle wälder
blühen in der gunst des sonnenspiels
reifende ähren in wiegendem tanze
flüstern ihre weisen dem winde zu



bricht dann die stille
neuerlich hernieder, mit diesigem hauche...
leise erhebt sich der nebel
schließlich tritt die nacht in die welt



wieder sind da spuren
im schnee bei den bäumen
der mond steht alleine
in kalter nacht



es ist eine stille
ganz tiefe ruhe
allmächtiges schlafen
leise verliert sich das leben
wartet auf den neuen tag

    Such a beautiful song! So peaceful and calm and pretty...

    Tracks in the snow lead past you Clear frosty winds in the moonlight Endless hours filled with glassy silence You keep watch persistently in deepest night

    Then the stillness is broken Flows into sleepy, meagre wanting The mist blows quietly The world is at last full of light

    Deep-green meadows, cool shady woods Blossom under the benevolence of the sun Ripening corn in swaying dances Whisper their wisdom to the wind

    Then the stillness sets in Recently sinking, with hazy breath The mist quietly rises At last night steps onto the world

    The tracks have returned In the snow near the trees The moon stands alone In the cold night

    There is a silence A very deep peace An almighty sleep Life quietly loses itself And waits for the new day

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Page
Ed Sheeran
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.
