When you coming home to me / När du kommer hem till mig

Devils danced on my kitchen table All Saints Day. It was far too intrusive to cope with and  I felt tired and weak. From Monday the week after grey November  ruled the whole country in  numb and dull and chilly nudity, veiled in dusky light. I walked restless and gloomy around in my rooms in diffuse and distracted thoughts. I couldn’t get the grip of the day, but dark November really got its grip on me. I wanted to shake the mood off me, by trying to write an entry about the bluesy November. It didn’t work!  But finally I found comfort in this song and its beautiful  tune. The lyrics is in Swedish, but I have translated into English.

Title: När du kommer hem till mig (When you comes home to me)
Swedish lyrics & music: Ulf Dageby (English translation by me)

When you coming home to me
I can see you from my window
You’re now seen on the rainy road
through water patterned window

It has been quit and empty here,
but the radio music murmur sound
consoled me when it hurt too much,
and I’d walked too many yards around

All memories knocked on the door today,
and ghosts have gone through the rooms.
But when you comes home to me
The anxiety never blooms.

I see you on the street, so close now
and the curtain make golden seams,
the rain becomes a silver wine
that quenches all bad dreams.
—-
All memories knocked on the door today,
and ghosts have gone through the rooms.
But when you comes home to me
The anxiety never blooms.

I see you on the street so close now
and the curtain make golden seams,
the rain becomes a silver wine
that quenches all bad dreams.
——
When you’re coming home to me
can I see you from my window
You’ll be seen now in rainy road
through water patterned window
