The Cannon Lady

Versions: #1#2
I will throw this enormous heart of mine
into the stars one day.
I swear I will do it.
And over the blue of the circus tent
into the blue I will fly.
When the cannon lady
will turn into gold and silver.
Without going to the station
she will take the last train.
 
And in the face of the evil and the proud
my name will sparkle.
At the gates of the night
the day will stop.
An applause from the paying public
emphasizes it.
And from the mouth of the cannon
a song will be heard.
 
And with my hands, my love, I will grab yours.
And without words I will carry you into my heart.
And I will not be afraid
if I won't be as pretty as you say.
But we will fly in the sky in the flesh,
we will never return.
And without hunger, without thirst,
and without wings and without a net we will fly away.
 
So the cannon lady,
that great mystery will fly
All alone agains the black sky
she began her journey.
Everybody closed their eyes
on that very moment she disappeared.
Others lied and gave false testimonies
claiming they had never been there
 
And with my hands, my love, I will grab yours.
And without words I will carry you into my heart.
And I will not be afraid
if I won't be as pretty as you say.
But we will fly in the sky in the flesh,
we will never return.
And without hunger, without thirst,
and without wings and without a net we will fly away.
