Have you traveled through the night
The cold moon calling with its light
To desire in its kiss
Heavenly bliss
Hungry for the warmth of home
A touch safely intimate and known
Filling you until you cried
And had the only cure denied?

The first time I fell,
I descended into hell

And as your hurt was at its worst
The numbness when your heart had burst
The mighty hands that lifted you
From a grave to face the true?
Alone with your thoughts, star-bright
A cigarette and the silent, holy night
No time to spare, to buy or spend
Singing silent at the end?

The first time I fell,
I descended into hell
The second death, rebirth
I came back to earth

And when the fear at last had failed
And your anger banged its final nail
And your longing- silenced memory
Did you know that you were free?
Did you let go in the moonlight
Being pulled through starry skies?
Did your heart expand in empty bliss
To merciful forgetfulness?

The first time I fell,
I descended into hell
The second death, rebirth
I came back to earth
The third time I'll fly
Into heavenly skies

For I can truly say
That now I know the way.
