When Night is almost done

Language: English

When Night is almost done --
And Sunrise grows so near
That we can touch the Spaces --
It's time to smooth the Hair --

And get the Dimples ready --
And wonder we could care
For that old -- faded Midnight --
That frightened -- but an Hour --


Translation(s): GER GER

Wenn fast die Nacht vorbei

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Wenn fast die Nacht vorbei
und Morgenlicht sich zeigt,
dass man zurecht sich finden kann,
ist’s Zeit, dass man sich kämmt,

ein erstes Lächeln übt, 
sich wundert, dass man vor
der lang verwelkten Mitternacht
eine Stund’ geschaudert hat.
