I saw the face of god in the mirror
But I cried not
Perish, my spit boils
The velvet shines, the velvet shines, the velvet shines
So blue
And blue is heaven
Are you near? Are you near? Are you near?

I climb the velvet staircase, not
I flew and conquered
The velvet shines, the velvet shines, the velvet shines
So blue
And blue is heaven
Are you near? Are you near? Are you near?

The velvet shines, the velvet shines, the velvet shines
So blue
And blue is heaven
Are you near? Are you near? Are you near?
The blue near, blue bleue
Et blue est le ciel
Et toi, coucher. Et toi, coucher
