Once in a dream,

I sailed through the night
in a dream-guided ship I did sail.

The cloud-shrouded sky slipped orange into red.
And the red sky in twilight did pale.

And I thought of my life as a ship on the sea
and the mercy of ocean´s stark might.

And where the winds blow, there do I go.

Just a ship, all alone, in the night.

I do not belong and my heart´s storm´s too strong
to sail but alone on the sea.

So alone I will sail in the dark misty night
with the moon shining softly on me.
