“horizonto” by Gutevolk

horizonto

Lyrics: Nishiyama Hirono
Translation: Alex Fyffe

in the dream I had yesterday I am on a long journey watching the drifting landscape alone
there is no one else in the dream, no matter how far I go, only tracks as far as I can see
there is no one else in the dream, only light playing rhythmically on the clouds drifting through the grey sky
there is no one else in the dream, no one, no matter how far I go, no matter how far
a tram goes alone, a tram goes alone
running in my ears, running in my ears

Notes:

The title and the last two lines were written in English by the author, but the four long lines were translated by me in 2008. You can find the original lyrics and listen to a clip of the song at Gutevolk’s amazing Web site. “horizonto” is from her 2003 album, Suomi.
