We are walking together

to the brightness of the day

on a road that is surrounded by wild lupines

and the air is fresh full of scents

on a road that is surrounded by wild lupines

Big red roses

someone has brought into the room

I am yet a very tired man

falling asleep again

And you are coming to meet

me grabbing my hand

on a road that is surrounded by wild lupines

Wild Lupines
