Nighttrain

riding on the nighttrain I wonder where I go
trying to write things down but things I just don’t know
watching people come and go and feeling all alone
wondering how my burning fear could turn me into stone

tell me tell me gently
is this train running down to my destiny

this girl in front well she is blond and that’s the only thing
she often smiles to give the best but my bird cannot sing
the soldiers selling dirty jokes and I can feel the cold
their laughter ’s like the rattling wheels that eat away my soul

tell me tell me gently
is this train running down to my destiny

the train speeds on and I look down and find the rail is burning
and then I realise once more: from this train’s no returning
I close my eyes they see no more for tears fall on my hand
and I know it’s no gentle rain that stone turns into sand

tell me tell me gently
is this train running down to my destiny


De Neerkant

Album en boek zijn uit. Hier staat ook een beetje oefentekst.


Sunshine

1973, in 2017 vertaald als Sunshine (De Neerkant)

Sunshine

cold cold cold
while the night is still ahead
gentle sleep I cannot find
but when I wake up in the morning
there is sunshine on my bed
I’m still on your mind

you said: everyone must give
just exactly what he is
I think I understand
but things go wrong my love
when man’s afraid to live
afraid to take my hand

so you took my hand and I loved
the wrinkles of your eyes
the sun was breaking through
and the light upon yor head
was the sunshine of your smile
yes you loved me too

we looked up into the sky
and then we kissed goodbye
I feel like a fool
someone’s waiting there for you

oh so long so long honey
you go your way and I go mine
there’s no other way to go
but when I wake up in the morning
there is sunshine on my bed
I’m still on your mind

oh so long so long honey
you go your way and I go mine
there’s no other way to go
but a song of love a song of sunshine
there is left behind
and I will sing this song tomorrow

Run Highway ​​

throw out your key babe
throw out your line
can’t you see it’s me babe
it’s me please be mine
well I walked a long long road babe
and I had a long long roam
but now it’s time to stay babe
it’s time to stay home

run run highway
run till the end
but don’t you run my way
farewell my friend
run run highway
run till the end
but don’t you run my way
I’ve got no diamonds left to spend

you can hear people say:
ever keep on trying
but I can’t keep on flying
I’m tired out today
make me your food babe
and make me a bed
make me feel good babe
I lost the best friend I had

throw out your key babe
throw out your line
can’t you see it’s me babe
it’s me please be mine
send me a letter
spare me a dime
here I feel better
farewell this time

run run highway
run till the end
but don’t you run my way
farewell my friend
run run highway
run till the end
but don’t you run my way
I’ve got no diamonds left to spend


Bluebird

1970
Bluebird

hey there you have no name
tell me is life a game
well people say that it’s true
can’t you tell me

I can’t talk no I can’t talk
but I can sing just like you

you know I will call you Bluebird
I know it’s just a word
like other words and none is true

truth, I can’t walk away
oh yes I can walk but I wish to fly just like you

and it’s no use going
without trying
and I keep on going
for it’s no use dying without knowing either

they say: time is money
tell me, ain’t that funny
they have so much money and so little time

maybe they are afraid
they keep saying: it’s too late
are they afraid to live, to die?

and it’s no use going
without trying
and I keep on going
for it’s no use dying without knowing either
