​Watching The Moon Sail Out Of The East

This song is by Tusmørke and appears on the album Underjordisk Tusmørke (2012).

Watching the moon sail out of the east
Plowing the waves of the sky
Blackbirds alone give voice to the night
As I'm standing silently by
Hardly a cloud, barely a breeze
Softly the meadows do sigh
Oh, would you stay, moment of peace,
If but just now I could die?

If I could tie myself in time
Stay moment, you're so sweet
Why must I down from where I've climbed?
Stay moment, you're so sweet
Sweeter than a flower's blossom
Resting in the evening's bosom

Beautifully drunk, happy and calm
Lie on my back in the grass
Fancy and whim, brilliant plans
Idly I let them all pass
Inside, outside, all are in tune
Chiming harmoniously
If I can't halt the passage of time,
At least let it move languidly

If I could tie myself in time
Stay moment, you're so sweet
Why must I down from where I've climbed?
Stay moment, you're so sweet
Sweeter than a flower's blossom
Resting in the evening's bosom

Stay, moment!

Verweile doch, du bist so schön!
