My first Liz Triangle album was reunion, and in the years since that album came out, I haven’t had the chance to go back and listen to their back catalogue (secretly hoping they release a sort of ‘complete collection’ at C92…) Anyway, this song is moving and I really like it.
In a silent forest, clad in dark mist,
I look up at the invisible moon and hum to myself.
The lost child, once again, followed that song
Their figure was projected upon the hazy full moon.
The traces of my loneliness and tears grew so strong they would not vanish.
I believed I could live, even if I was alone. My heart was hollow.
I forgot how valuable it is to talk to others
And accept the kindness of strangers.
Though I sang, though I called out,
Nobody paid any attention to my voice.
The shivering bird sang a lullaby toward the underworld
So they could sleep deeply, once more; so they could die without going astray.
Lending an ear to the song, the lost child stood still.
They seemed anxious, but they began to smile, just a little.
I had already given up,
Given up on understanding others through song.
I want to tell you about my sadness
And about the weight of being burdened with sorrow
So I will continue to sing, continue to cry.
But nobody can hear. I can’t tell anyone about anything.
Even knowing that nobody will hear me,
I continue to sing a song toward the underworld.
Though I’ve given up on communicating with others,
I will sing. My song carries my words and my feelings…
I want to tell you about what lies within my sealed-off heart.
I want to sing with you as we walk, shoulder-to-shoulder
But I told myself it was over, that it was an impossible dream.
I covered my mouth with both hands.
A child grabbed my hands and unsealed my mouth
And they showed me their innocent smile.
They began to sing the same song
And we looked up at the same sky.
