Waltz Fragments for Eurydice

For Sandra

Let us dance in the light, in the beginning of Summer,

and donít ever turn back.

Come with me, Eurydice, where are we reeling to?

Donít ask me how and why.

Whirling around we are weaving miracles,

weíre tumbling away into dreams,

spinning, spinning, Eurydice, come with me,

be confident, dissolve, be at home.

Donít ask, Eurydice, where the music comes from:

Itís the music of summer and light.

Just listen and dance to the light-hearted song,

for its end is the start of the night.

Together weíve been to hell and back,

weíll stand up against any task.

Thereís nothing we miss and nothing we lack,

so dontĎ ask; Eurydice, donít ask.

And the dance is getting more intense,

savage and crazy;

hold on, Eurydice, for I think,

if we let go, weíll break.

And I am hearing, Eurydice, another song:

a swan singing on the shore,

and I feel: I am near, I feel the attraction,

that pulls me towards drowning...

And I call you, Eurydice, I call you,

through the whirlwind of music,

To find out if everything I am living for

is in the depths of your eyes.

May we be condemned to fall

as soon as the music ends:

we are dancing, and the musicís whirling

is reflected in the fire of your eyes.

And never look away,

for that is the first step we take

out of the joyous circle

and closer to the song of the swan in the lake Ė

So dance in the circle, in the centre of light,

hold on, Eurydice, hold on,

and spin around, spin around, and donít think of anything

but the dance, so it wonít leave us.

Let us dance in the light, in the beginning of Summer,

let us dance in the light forever!

Come with me, Eurydice, where are we reeling to?

Donít ask, Eurydice Ė donít ask.
