UNAN BENNAK EVEL-SE - 25 - American Dream - Hunvre Amerikan - Rêve Américain .

Unan Bennak Evel-Se ( 25 )

 

 

 

 

 

American Dream

 

 

 

 

Yellow glints in darkness

Wake me up of a dream ,

Tryin' just to find your face 

In those people ' stream ...

 

You feel my life is a game ,

Somethin' for you to play with ,

But streets , they always look all the same

You know , in big cities ...

 

Do I have to go on 

In such a lonely night ,

Or sail across the ocean

Of your light ?

 

O where are you now girl , 

Does a windy air still move your hair ,

Won't you tell a so bad diver

How to catch a pearl ?

 

Wandered thru those bad days ,

Cars 'round me , stars above ,

All wait , I'm sure , for new rays

Of your love ...

 

Remember , Indian hunter ,

Woman and child by your side ,

You'd been stabbed , they raped her ,

Did they also kill our pride ?

 

And do I have to go on 

In such a lonely night , 

Or sail across the ocean

Of your light ?

 

Blessed are the soldiers of George ,

" Mayflower " sons in Valley Forge ,

Shiverin' shadows of our past

Still show us for ever they last ...

 

Come from those half mountains ,

Poor beggar by wheat seas ,

Walk down under heavy rains

To rainbows and to beaches ...

 

And you , black man in Phila 

I never saw yet before at all ,

Beware of all what you say

Near Independence Hall ...

 

O where are you now girl ,

Will a windy air still move your hair ,

Won't you tell a so bad diver

How to catch his pearl ?

 

Root beers , stripes , Coca-cola 

Can't even quench my thirst of your sky ,

So , losin' my heart thru America ,

I cry , I don't know why ...

 

Lead me on with your magic smile 

To Moon , our fairy land ,

Let's dare , my dear , take each other's hands , 

Just for a while ...

 

Lets' go for a last sail on the sea

To the Statue of Liberty ,

Higher soonly in my plane ,

I'll think of you , love ... Amen .

Unan Bennak Evel-Se

( 23 )

 

Between You , Between Me ...

 

 

Between us , we were both 

Rocked by the waves over the ocean ,

Like the North and the South ,

When their war had just begun ...

 

Between you , between me ,

Dew dreamin' of its source ,

My love lighted in , lookin' for yours ,

Like shelter on a high sea ...

 

Somethin' s lost , I can see

Glimpses of fire in your ice ,

Between a flower and a tree ,

Tears of mine still reflectin' in your eyes ...

 

Within me , within you ,

Was it only a blue avenue ?

Wanderin' skies in your eyes ,

Dark and grey , pourin' waters and whys ...

 

Somethin' s lost , can't you see

Glints of fire burnin' in my eyes ?

But the wind rises free ,

Blowin' away all our little lies ...

 

Between days , all years passed away ,

We're just here for a while ,

Between fears , you know , between smiles ,

What will fade and what will last ?

 

Betwen us , and we both

Followed the waves of the ocean ,

Within days of our youth ,

When the war had just begun ...

man_in_prison.jpgAbout

" ... Truth stands , and he that will reach her ,

  about must and about must go . "

John Donne - "Satyre III " , 1 , 79 .

 

" There's no way out of here ,

   When you come in ,

   You're in for good ... " 

 Ken Baker ( Unicorn )

 

About a clip-souvenir

Of my love

On bad timing been murdered ...

 

About something like a golden heart

At her collar fixed

I long ago offered her ...

 

About a necklace of it

They found at last ,

Some old relics

Of our ancient past ...

 

And tell me what else remains

When you're locked in chains

But your soul in front of hers

And her wind to you that whispers :

 

Am I gone in vain ?

She opened her veins !

So you could have never killed her ...

 

Only that ribbon of him

Found around her neck ,

See her body like a wreck

And your life , a bad dream ...

 

About this clip-souvenir

Of my love

On bad timing been murdered ...

 

About something like a golden heart

At her collar fixed

I long ago offered her ...

Legacy

" Ael ar Marv a lavaras c'hoazh :

- Ho kariad a anaveze e Donkadur ; ne harzas ket outan . Edo ouzh va gortoz pa ziskennis d'e gavout , un abardaevezh-hanv ... " ( The Angel of Darkness still said : - Your friend knew his Destiny ; he didn't rebel against it . He was waiting for me when I came down to find him , one summer evening ... )

Jakez Riou ( 1899 - 1937 ) - " Prometheus Ereet " ( Prometheus Chained , 1928 ) . 

 

If it's time for me to go ,

Sure won't miss a world of sorrow ,

Sale me a small part of homeland

To put my grave , to lay my hand ...

 

Write down my chosen name 'bove it only ,

Dates of birth , death to be ,

Say he fought for his own country ,

Say he wished us to be free !

 

I won't speak your foreign language

To make you despise or rage ,

Using words of brothers Family

To share with them slavery !

 

 But listen to me people :

" Karout a ris va Bro ! "

 What will come next I don't know ,

If no one works saving our soul !

 

Met , mar bez red , 'lare ar barzh ,

Ni 'zleo stourm ouzh ur voger ,

Tamm-ha-tamm , betek an trec'h ,

'Vidomp-ni , ne vo ket gwazh !

 

So , I won't talk to you foreign language ,

Makin' you feel despise or rage ,

Using words of brothers families

Struggling to save their legacies ...

 

You'll call their names in front of enemies ,

To free from birth and destinies ...

Kate MulgrewWhere Dreams Have Gone ...

 

To Saint Elisabeth Ann Seton ( 1774 - 1821 ) ,

in memory of a visit in Emmitsburg , MD ( U.S.A ) 

 

" The Lord is my sheperd ,

   I shall not be in want ,

   He leads me beside still waters ... "

Psalm 23

 

 

How does it feel

To be lone in the land of Mary ,

Lost by someone

Who won't come anymore ?

Don't tell me it's not worth a doctor  ...

 

Thus were colours on her umbrella ,

Wild silk flower in a holy garden ,

Memory graven ,

Our sweet conversations

Fallen silent ,

Smile of a child , flags all around ,

Fifteen stars upon ,

She's gone ... *

 

And it's an angel who suddenly woke me ,

As a solitary bird flyin' so blithely ,

If not for you , my dear , what should be all the rest ,

If not for you , where is my nest ?

 

I'd rather sing it quite more simply ,

Like all the sails that ever went to sea ,

Many stars upon ,

Where my dreams have gone ...

 

 * Mother Seton lost her daughter Anna on March 12 , 1812 .

 

" A Time For Miracles  " ( 1980 ) , U.S Tv film directed by Michael O'Herlihy , with Kate Mulgrew , John Forsythe , Lorne Greene , Jean-Pierre Aumont

Free

 

 

On s'demande

Si c'qu'on fait ça sert ,

Sur la lande , ,

Au bout de la mer ,

Nous attendent

Ces oiseaux blancs , ces goélands ...

 

Vers l'Irlande , 

Ont fait voile nos rêves , nos idées ,

L'étoile claire

D'une soirée d'été , 

En route vers l'espoir ,

La liberté !

 

War al lann ,

E penn hent ar mor e welan , 

Gant laboused gwenn , ur gouelan

O heulian sterenn ar Frankiz

Ken pell diouzh kêrbenn Bariz ...

 

To our land ,

Follow birds on seas

And as far as simple men only could see ,

Give your hands , set us free ,

Open your hearts to be !

 

War al lann ,

E penn hent ar mor e welan 

Kant gwennili kann , ur gouelan ,

O heulian sterenn ar Frankiz ,

Ken pell diouzh hon bed kriz !

AZ394237-100-jeune-fille-sur-la-plage-2.jpgValentine 2

 

For Nancy and Mona ( + )

 

" It's seems so long ago ... "

Leonard Cohen - " Seems So Long Ago , Nancy  " *

 

 

Valentine ,

It's your name ,

It's the way that you chose

For the end of the game ,

It's a place that we knew

You told me

Was so fine ,

Where I used to follow you

Long ago ,

For a while ...

 

Girl of mine ,

There I know

You were easy to find ,

When I saw you runnin'

Sometimes ,

By the seaside ,

After dreams and shadows

I guessed

We left behind ...

 

Valentine ,

It's your smile

On my mind ,

I just saw it for a while

Thru the waves ,

As the sun played 'round swimmers

And a boat ,

There's a light that now shines

Water colours

On a girl's face like yours

With the same coat ...

 

Oh , girl of mine ,

It's my pain ,

Like the ebb and the flow ,

Like the why and the how

On the way that you chose

To show us your fame

Before you fly untamed , 

Goin' so far ,

Like a star ...

Opposite Side

 

" Tuve que perderme

   Pa 'Llegar hasta tu lado -

I had to get lost

To reach your side ... "

Lhassa - " Pa'Llegar a Tu Lado  " *

 

 

 

It's the story of a travelin' man ,

Lost his heart across a harbor's street ,

Found her eyes among the crowd ,

Drownin' soul , uncolored flood ,

Flowin' water ...

 

 

And wasn't it so strange to see

All these hands ,

On the sandbanks ,

Would open wide ,

By the opposite side ?

 

 

Then , he went upstairs ,

After the bridge ,

To that girl's flat he used to know ,

Shaven-headed girl

He'd tried only to follow ,

She wasn't there ...

Days Of Yore

"  Sing , daughter of Zion , The Lord is with you !

  He will rejoice over you with singing ! "

Zephaniah , 3 , 14-17 .

 

 

 

 

She left clouded smiles

In my dreams full of tears ,

Thru dusk She appears ,

On Her veil , stars , moonbeams ...

 

 

And Her love heals my pain ,

Bunch of lily , roses bound ,

Though thorns , once again ,

Make it bleed ,

O , make it wound ...

 

 

Lady of mine , princess of my night ,

Warm these hearts of sins and sore ,

Let me be

Your only knight ,

As it was

In days of yore ,

In days of yore ...

 

 

Mary said : You're my Saviour , my Son ,

My soul magnifies my Lord ,

Everyone shall call me blessed , as before ,

My spirit rejoiced in God ,

Oh , Oh !

Unan Bennak Evel-Se

( 15 )



Pillow




P
illow ,
Won't you tell her what you know ,
Of all the regrets
Of my heart ,
Or will you set them apart
Until tomorrow ?

Pillow ,
You swored me your vow ,
To keep the secrets
Of our nights ,
When we're holdin' so tight ,
You're all I've left for now ,
But that sorrow ...


As the hair of my lover
Flew over you like a river
Of magic beams ,
Did you also feel her dreams ,
Or why
She's suddenly gone ,
Leavin' me alone ?

Pillow ,
Won't you tell me what you know ,
Of all the secrets
Of her heart ?
Oh , I'm feelin' so low ,
Don't let meSleeping.jpg 
Play " solo " ,
Pillow ...
