Come in my boat
a storm is rising
and the night is coming
Where do you want to go
(quite alone you are drifting away),
give it up
Who will hold your hand
when it
pulls you under

Where do you want you want to go
So boundless,
the cold sea
Come in my boat,
The wind of autumn
keeps the sails stiff

Now you are standing by the lantern
with tears in your face
The daylight falls to the side
The autumn wind sweeps empty the streets

Now you are standing by the lantern
with tears in your face
The evening light chases the shadows away
Time stands still and fall is coming

Come in my boat
Yearning becomes
the helmsmen
Come in my boat
the best sailor
was I

Now you are standing by the lantern
with tears in your face
You take the fire from the candle
Time stands still and fall is coming

They only spoke of your mother
so merciless is only the night
In the end I'm left alone
The time stands still
and I am cold
