Shifty, smoky shadow
Where have you been for all my life
For I have been looking for you
A number of years and all over the place
The shadow of you always eluded me
Sometimes I think that I may have
Crossed path with you not knowing who you were
Sometimes I think that I met you
But didn't realize she was you.
In the end I still miss you.
I know you are somewhere longing
To meet me just the way I am waiting,
Filled with desire to communicate.
You, the smoky vision in my dreams
I know that the day when we meet,
We'll both have reached our home port
And from then on only one ship will sail,
On which we'll cruise together.
I don't know what you look like,
So it doesn't make things easier.
Come out of hiding and show yourself to me
Let me lay eyes on you, embrace the vision
Of your body. Surprise me ! Capture me !
What are you waiting for, time is running out.
Let's enjoy together the autumn of our lives.
Let me discover you.
So you, shifty, smoky shadow of a woman,
Put an end to my misery
Come out of your cloud and mesmerize me
