Lyrics

There were some buildings

Written By: Agata Vilchik

there were some buildings there
and birds in clouds cried away distances from us in waves
of light streamed over the land we could embrace
and setting foot on it could've brought you to the place where motion started
of earth and sun

there were some temples there
which cooled in constellations dispersing prayer rests over the sky in birds
and when a breath was heard it was beginning of the song about
the birth of night and plunge of light into the quiet depth
and there's no memory about the past because each blink
revealed us in the confluence of minutes being life that flows everywhere
and silently I loved you like the stars come out and like these creatures of the light
glow in eternal silence

and all this would have never ended
but we became ones making signs one to the other
to learn how many birds did fly
to learn how nights spring up
to learn how deeply we can love each other

If I were sun

Written By: Agata Vilchik

If I were sun,
there would have been no other light.
If I were sea,
I would have calmly overflowed and covered stones.
If I were wind,
I would have spread my love from heart
Into the every moment of things' existence
And made live souls
Of every stone.
And whilst I stand upon the earth
And distances reside within
I need to see somebody's face
To recollect my origin
To recollect how it began
And where it'll come
when all of things cease to exist.

Run, disheveled hare, run

Written By: Agata Vilchik

Run, disheveled hare, run,
on protuberant crests of ruined world
pink strumming of the sunset
stabbed my heart -
love came out
I slipped in a pool -
stars rumbled from sky.
Butterfly, that took wing o'er void!
your reality permeates air
and makes me listen to in silence.

Where is the bird that flies so high

Written By: Agata Vilchik

Where is the bird that flies so high,
Where is the bird that won't be fowled?
Where do my thoughts disperse to dust?
Where do they melt?
Fit me out behind the high sky
Raise me over my self
I remember my death,
I remember my flight and my fall.

Verity wanders like a wild beast

Written By: Agata Vilchik

Verity wanders like a wild beast
In the woods of primeval land
A star seceded from the constellation
A letter fell off the word
And silver rain does wash away my self
With torrents of distracted sense
