Deathwatchbeetle

This song is by Hoelderlin and appears on the album Hoelderlin (1975).

Times were happy and beautiful
We lived beyond the skies
And everything was love and joy
No worries around

Every second I loved you
You took all my mind
All the time our living's been
A wonderful dream

When for the first time I heard it
The ticking of the deathwatch beetle
When for the first time I heard it
The ticking of the deathwatch beetle
Closed my ears and turned off my mind for once
I love you so
I wish those times back again

When for another time I heard it
The ticking of the deathwatch beetle
When for another time I heard it
The ticking of the deathwatch beetle
I walked away on the next ??fine day??
I didn't take the ??soft?? way
That had been my way
But when you prayed that I should come back
I told you it's okay

And so we're back in Heaven again
Holy choirs are singing
Hand in hand we walk together
Through the grand gates of Heaven
Then a band of angels starts to play
All Paradise is swinging
We're dancing round and round
In everlasting ??????
Everything seems love and joy
Happiness and not a thing to care
Lord Father's smiling kindly
We often saw the church
Lord Father's nodding wisely
Another two just ??stand?? the test

When for the next time I hear the ticking of the deathwatch
When for the next time I hear the ticking of the deathwatch
When for the next time I hear the ticking of the deathwatch
When for the next time I hear the ticking of the deathwatch...
(repeat)
