Lyrics and music : Achinoam Nini (Noa)
I walk alone into lady night She wraps me in her black veils, wraps me tight Her velvet touch on my weary eyes Kisses softly Windy sighs
Lady night in her grandeur flaunts jewels of light
Flirting with sir half-moon, She shimmies slowly backs-o-mountains Dips her hair in twilight
Walk alone into lady night The woman’s discreet as a grave, and I know she’ll Want your tears
Lady night’s got an appetite For sorrow liquidated into pearls of light One by one shell gather them to her breast Kiss your lowered eyes and bid you rest.
She takes me to her tummy, I clutch her warmth I know that I am falling She delves into my mind, delves into my mind,
brings out my darkest thoughts To keep her dark from dawning (I know that’s what she wants)
I turn my back to lady night My mind is clear My pearls are in her satchel I’ve paid my share of blackness to her.
Turn my back to the lady, though she calls She calls… ! But I am going to the dawn
I am going to the dawn
I am going to the dawn And she can no longer Keep me...
