Smoky afternoon light
Got the sun stuck in my eye
It's shouting from the river
Then it leaps back in the sky

Prenons la mer
Sur les vagues solaires --
Toi et moi parmi les esprits de la lumiere*

*TRANSLATION:
"Let us take to the sea
On waves of sunlight
You and I among the spirits of light"

This morning in the past
Y'know I felt like broken glass
Now I'm feeling all right
Knife-sharp as a winter night

Prenons la mer
Sur les vagues solaires --
Toi et moi parmi les esprits de la lumiere

J'ai reve que les abeilles
Etaient des gouttes de sang du soleil
Et au ciel des bombardiers
Pechaient pour nos ames irisees**

**TRANSLATION:
"I dreamt that the bees
Were drops of blood from the sun
And the bombers in the sky
Were trawling for our iridescent souls"

Prenons la mer
Sur les vagues solaires --
Toi et moi parmi les esprits de la lumiere
