ONE OF THIS DAYS

One of this days

UNO DE ESTOS DIAS

Uno de estos dias

A Pillow of Winds

A cloud of eiderdown
draws around me
Softening the sound

Sleepy time when I lie
with my love by my side
And she's breathing low,

and the candle dies

When night comes down
you lock the door
The book falls to the floor
As darkness falls
and waves roll by
The seasons change
the wind is warm

Now wakes the owl,
now sleeps the swan
Behold a dream,
the dream is gone
Green fields, a cold rain
Is falling in a golden dawn

And deep beneath the ground
the early morning sounds
And I go down
Sleeping time when I lie
with my love by my side
And she's breathing low

And I rise like a bird
In the haze when the first rays
touch the sky

And the night winds die

Un Cojín de vientos

Una nube de edredón
dibuja alrededor de mí
mitigando un sonido.

Es tiempo de dormir, y me tumbo,
con mi amor a mi lado,
y ella está respirando suavemente.

Y la vela se apaga.

Cuando viene la noche
cierras la puerta
el libro cae al suelo.
Mientras la oscuridad desciende
las olas se agitan,
las estaciones cambian
el viento es confuso.

Ahora es el momento de despertar
ahora duerme el cisne
observa el sueño
el sueño se ha ido.
Los verdes campos están anunciando
esta cayendo, en una puerta dorada.

Y en la profundidad bajo el suelo,
se oye al amanecer
y desciendo.
Es tiempo de dormir, y me tumbo,
con mi amor a mi lado,
y ella está respirando suavemente.

Y asciendo, como un pájaro,
en la niebla, cuando los primeros rayos
tocan el cielo.

Y el vuelo de la noche muere.

Fearless

You say the hill's too steep to climb,
climbing
You say you'd like to see me try,
climbing

You pick the place and I'll choose the time
And I'll climb
the hill in my own way
Just wait a while for the right day
And as I rise above the tree-line and the clouds
I look down hear the sound
of the things you said today

Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd, smiling
Merciless the magistrate turns round, frowning
And who's the fool who wears the crown
Not doubt in your own way
And every day is the right day
And as you rise above the fear-lines in the brow
You look down hear the sound of the faces in the crowd

Intrépido

Dices que la colina es demasiado inclinada para escalar.
Escalala.
Dices que te gustaría verme intentar
escalar.

Escoge el lugar y yo elegiré el momento
y escalaré
esa colina a mi manera.
Solo espera un poco al día oportuno.
Y mientras asciendo sobre la línea trazada por los árboles y las nubes
miro abajo, entre el sonido de las cosas que hoy dijiste.

Intrépido el idiota dio la cara a la multitud
sonriendo.
Despiadadamente el magistrado se volvió
frunciendo el ceño

Y ¿Quién es el tonto que lleva la corona?
y baja,
a tu manera
y cualquier día es el oportuno
y mientras asciendes sobre las líneas que marcan el miedo en la multitud
mira abajo, entre el sonido de las caras en la multitud.

San Tropez

As I reach for a peach
Slide around down behind a sofa in San Tropez
Breaking a stick with a brick on the sand
Riding a wave in the wake of an old sedan
Sleeping alone in the drone of the darkness
Scratched by the sand that fell from my love
Deep in my dreams and I still hear her calling
If you're alone, I'll come home

Backward and homebound, the pigeon, the dove
Gone with the wind and the rain on an airplane
Born in a home with no silver spoon
I'm drinking champagne like a good tycoon
Sooner than wait for a break in the weather
I'll gather my far flung thoughts together
Speeding away on a wind to a new day
If you're alone, I'll come home

And I'll pause for a while by a country stile
And listen to things they say
Digging for gold in the hole in my hand
Open the book, take a look at the way things stand
And you're leading me down to the place by the sea
I hear your soft voice calling to me
Making a date for later by phone
And if you're alone, I'll come home

Seamus

I was in the kitchen
Seamus, that's the dog, was outside
Well I was in the kitchen
Seamus, my old hound, was outside
Well you know the sun was sinking slowly
And my old hound-dog sat right down and cried

Echoes

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine

And no-one showed us to the land
And no-one knows the where or whys
But something stirs and something tries
And starts to climb towards the light

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can

And no-one calls us to move on
And no-one forces down our eyes
And no-one speaks and no-one tries
And no-one flies around the sun

Cloudless everday you fall upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Comes streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

And no-one sings me lullabies
And no-one makes me close my eyes
And so I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky
