Give me the Moon (Donne moi la Lune)

Give me the Moon (Donne moi la Lune)

A Poem by Nico

 

 

 

 

give me the moon,
I know you've got it
in some inside pocket
the moon is a world
so it travels
even if it looks fixed
I live according to the
time there is, you know
I take emotions with me
I live singing days.

give me the shortest summer
there is but intense and colourful
like a cycle race in the
streets that surprises
give me the moon before dawn
throw away all the stars
deep in the waste-paper basket
of convoluted dreams

I think there's fascination
I find the shivering magic
in you and in every sense
"don't move"
it should remain
an erotic world.

look! the sun is leaving
and above the sky turns
a big orange juice inside out...
an irresistible thirst for you
comes across my mind
you see, it's a thought
that never uncouples...
of an erotic dream....

let me play,
let me dream
but to wake me up early you've got
to let me fall into a soft dream
that's all I ask for
give me the craziest moon
vanish with me for a night
tomorrow is a reversion already
tomorrow is another place...

              Donne moi la Lune

donne-moi la lune,
je sais que tu l'as dans
quelque poche intérieure
la lune est un monde
et elle voyage pour cela
même si elle semble fixe
tu sais que je vis selon
le temps qu'il y a - je porte les
emotions avec moi en tour
je vis des jours chantés...

donne-moi l'été le plus brèf
qu'il y ait mais intense et coloré
comme une course de cyclisme
qui te surprend sur la route
donne-moi la lune mais avant
que l'aube ne jette
les étoiles au fond
du panier des rêves enroulés...

je trouve qu'il y a du charme
je trouve en toi et de toute façon
la magie du frisson
ne t'en vas pas d'ici
ça doit rester ainsi
un monde erotique...

regarde, le soleil s'en va
et en haut le ciel retourne
son jus de grosse orange...
regarde ce qui me vient dans la tête
ce sera le soif irrésistible de toi
"tu le vois"
une pensée qui ne se lâche pas...
d'un rêve erotique.

fais-moi jouer,
fais-moi dormir, mais pour me
réveiller tôt fais-moi tomber
dans un rêve léger, c'est la seule
chose que je te demande
donne-moi la lune plus folle qui soit
disparais avec moi pour une nuit,
demain est déjà de retour
demain est une autre place...

Peace and Love to all.

Paix et Amour a tous.

Nice phrasing. I had to read it, then come back and read it again.

I got the sense the voice shifted, which isn't a bad thing, just difficult to follow.

Thanks for the request.
