Ours is the night

In the night flooded with light

Inside the room

Keeping awake

The blanket creeps over the chest

Go to bed


Greyish white is the blank


Oh, night sleepers

That bring love

To bed


Would you continue to keep awake

To bring along love to illuminate

The night belongs to us

Love brightens the night


Ours is the night

How can you be so heartless as to sleep


I will leave myself to my fate keeping awake all alone

In nights flooded with light

The blanket creeping over the chest

Biting cold


The greyish white blanket



The night belongs to us…
