"In the twinkling of ..." in lyrics
At the moment of farewell I pressed you to my chest ( means: I hugged you so passionately )
My eyes shed streams of tears, then I bade you adieu
My heart wasn't pleased by this separation dear
Oh darling, forgive me if I had ever hurt you
If they try to snatch away your verse-poetry,
I promise I'll fight them really hard.
If they ask you to forget your city's tapestry,
I promise I'll have their efforts marred.
try and fly higher(fly higher)
My heart in the twinkling of an eye jumps crazily,lifting me from this earth
take away the earth under my feet love me right
I read another headline, watch and pray
Long ago you told me, it would all turn out this way
The world is spinning fast, the end is near
Love and understanding like time, just disappear
In the Holy Bible it tells us of a day
When the beast shall walk among us and many shall fall away
Famine war and desolation nation rising against nation
In a moment in the twinkling of an eye everything you know is gone [1 Corinthians 15:52 1 Thessalonians 4:15-16]
Nothing feels right everything is wrong [Proverbs 4:19]
Your no longer in control you're helpless and alone [Psalms 62:11 1 Chr.29:11,12 Romans 13:1]
sometimes begins to swell, to grow, to widen its distance rapidly, travels off into boundless spaces remote from the true centre, spaces incalculable and irretraceable, until hope seems extinguished and return impossible. Such was the course of my own opium career. Such is the history of human errors every day. Such was the original sin of the Greek theories on Deity, which could not have been healed but by putting off their own nature, and kindling into a new principle--absolutely undiscoverable, as I contend, for the Grecian intellect.
Oftentimes an echo goes as it were to sleep: the series of reverberations has died away. Suddenly a second series awakens: this subsides, then a third wakens up. So of actions done in youth. After great tumults all is quieted. You dream that they are over. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, on some fatal morning in middle-life the far-off consequences come back upon you. And you say to yourself, 'Oh, Heaven, if I had fifty lives this crime would reappear, as Pelion upon Ossa!' So was it with my affection. Left to natural peace, I might have conquered it: _Verschmerzeon_. To charm it down by the mere suffering of grief, to hush it by endurance, that was the natural policy--that was the natural process. But behold! A new form of sorrow arises, and the two multiply together. And the worm which was beginning to fall asleep is roused again to pestilential fierceness.
