VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR : AFTERWARDS (1969)

Κλείνω το αφιέρωμά μου στον Peter Hammill και τους Van Der Graaf Generator [υποκειμενικό και ελλιπές εκ των πραγμάτων] με ένα ακόμα από τα αγαπημένα μου τραγούδια : ‘Afterwards’, εισαγωγή του άλμπουμ – ντεμπούτου τους, Aerosol Grey Machine, 1969.
I close my tribute to
Peter Hammill and Van Der Graaf Generator [in effect subjective and incomplete] with another of my favorite songs :
‘Afterwards’, intro to their debut album Aerosol Grey Machine – 1969.

You stare out in yellow eyes
Larger than my mind
In viscous pools of joy
Relaxing, we glide
It’s all too beautiful
For my mind to bear
And as we shimmer into sleep
Something’s unshared
But seeing the flower
That was there yesterday
A tear forms just behind
The soft peace of your shades
The world’s too lonely
For a message to slip
But between the dying rails of peace
You trip
The petals that were blooming
Are just paper in your hand
Your eyes, which were clear in the night
Are opaque as you stand
It was too beautiful
For it to last
These visions shimmer and fade out of
The glass
The petals that were blooming
Are just paper in your hand
The petals that were blooming
Are just paper in your hand
The petals that were blooming
Are just paper in your hand
