Lyrics:  

 

Sleeping ships (translated lyrics)

 

There are times to rest in the daytime

There are times to reset your goals

There are times to harvest success

There are times to search your soul

 

And at night the ships are sleeping

And slowly you drift by

The sails of dust have been lowered

Where you are going, I can’t come along

 

Once I had a father and mother

But my father went another way

A while ago he found me in my dreams

I felt him standing behind me

 

And at night the ships are sleeping

And slowly you drift by

The sails of dust have been lowered

Where you are going I can’t come along
