bergen


"in the dutch mountains

I was born in the valley of bricks

where the river runs high above the rooftops

I was waiting for the cars coming home late at night

from the Dutch mountains


I was standing in the valley of rock

up to my belly in an early fog

I was looking for the road to a green painted house
in the Dutch mountains


in the Dutch mountains

mountains


I met a woman in the valley of stone

she was painting roses on the walls of her home

and the moon is a coin with the head of the queen

of the Dutch mountains

mountains


I lost a button of my shirt today

it fell on the ground

and it was rolling away

like a trail leading me back

to the Dutch mountains

mountains

to the Dutch mountains


I met a miller on the back of a cow

he was looking for the wind

but he didn't know how

I said

follow the cloud that looks like a sheep


in the Dutch mountains

in the Dutch mountains

in the Dutch mountains

mountains mountains

buildings"
