lyrics

Serpent Sleeps

I stirred up the waters
Where the serpent sleeps
Climbed down the ladder
I saw the dragon weep

Below the tides
The river flows
We’re what we hide
Choose not to show
I see Time go by
And Life unfold
Before my eyes

What lies beneath the surface
Is not always what it seems
I stopped looking for a purpose
I embrace the Mystery

Below the tides
The river flows
We’re what we hide
Choose not to show
I watch it slide
As I lose control

Light comes out of darkness
Peace after the storm
The rain obscurs the mirror
As the ripples reach the shore

Below the tides
The river flows
We’re what we hide
Choose not to show
I see Time go by
And Life unfold
Before my eyes



Serpent Dort

J’ai remué les eaux
Où dort le serpent
Suis descendue en bas de l’échelle
J’ai vu le dragon pleurer

Sous les marées
La rivière se répand
On est ce qu’on cache
Ce qu’on choisit de ne pas montrer
Je vois le temps qui passe
Et la vie qui coule
Devant mes yeux

Ce qui repose sous la surface
N’est pas toujours ce que l’on croit
J’ai arrêté de chercher une raison
Et saisi le Mystère

Sous les marées
La rivière se répand
On est ce qu’on cache
Ce qu’on choisit de ne pas montrer
Je la vois glisser
Alors que je perds contrôle

La lumière sort de l’obscurité
La paix succède à la tempête
La pluie dissimule le miroir
Le temps aux rides d’arriver au rivage

Sous les marées
La rivière se répand
On est ce qu’on cache
Ce qu’on choisit de ne pas montrer
Je vois le temps qui passe
Et la vie qui coule
Devant mes yeux
