This poem is about ups and downs in life, about not giving up hope, about sunshine after rain!
I hope you can relate to this.
Cafe International Again.. (Long Past Nights) (9.1.2000)
I feel the feeling of long past nights
The mood, the magic, the rhythm, the lights
Stay with me, feeling, stay!
The moments I felt years ago
Months of magic in a row
- Don't go far away!
Numbness wants to settle in
As if the lights could just not win
Oh hard and lonely fight!
But I believe the good will last
in the end, as in the past
I dive into the night.
And so I walk the empty streets
And block out thoughts of past defeats
Find myself in a song
The lights ar eshining, look like gold
The wind is blowing, but I'm not cold
I start to sing along
Don't you know there's alwasy hope
Even gliding down a steep steep slope
There's always good times again
We don't know what life will bring
How many new wild songs to sing
How can we get down, my friend?
So many times I thought with tears
In my heart my darkest fears:
Will I ever be happy again?
Oh had I known that before long
I would be singing a brand new song
- That's what I mean, my friend.
So I feel the feeling of long past nights
Would I have thought I'd run with the lights
again - oh, feeling, stay!
See life can't be a straight line
After the rain the sun will shine
And melt the clouds away.
