I wander all night in my vision
Stepping with light feet, swiftly and noiselessly stepping
And stopping, bending with opens arms
Over the shadows, I'm sleepers

Wandering and confused, lost to myself
Feel assorted contradictory posing
Gazing, branding and distorting

How solemn they look there stretched and still
How quite they breath, the little children in their cradles

The married couple sleeps soundly in their bed
He with his palm on the hip of his wife
And she with her palm on the hip of the husband

The sisters sleep lovingly side by side in their bed
The men sleep lovingly side by side in beds
And the mother sleeps with her little child carefully wrapped

The sleepers are very beautiful as they lie enclosed
They flow hand in hand over the highest, from east to west
As they lie, as they lie, ooh, ooh, ooh
