APRÈS UN RÊVE by GABRIEL FAURÉ, new translation by Joel Sattler


 


New Title: “After the Dream is Gone”


 


[this is not an exact translation, but can be called a new interpretation]


 


I was asleep


and saw your apparition


In my dreams happy dreams


I thought you came home 


 


And you were happy too


With a voice pure and soaring


You were shining


Like a dawn all lit up by the morning 


 


You called to me


To go with you forever


To the sky we’d be free 


And fly together


 


Then the sky opened up


Opened as if holy  


Splendors iridescent and lonely 


And then we knew they were meant for us only


 


Alas alas


When I awoke from my slumber


I did call


O night take me back to my wonder 


 


Come back come back


Radioso


Come back


O night Mysterioso…

Original lyrics in French by Romain Bussine [based on an anonymous poem of Tuscany]:


 


Dans un sommeil


que charmait ton image


Je revais le bonheur,


ardent message


 


Tes yeux etaient plus doux,


ta voix pure et sonore


Tu rayonnais


comme un ciel eclaire par l'aurore


 


Tu m'appelais,


et je quittais la terre


Pour m'enfuir avec toi


vers la lumiere


 


Les cieux pour nous


entr'ouvraient leurs nues


Splendeurs inconnues,


lueurs divines entrevues...


 


Helas, helas,


triste reveil des songes !


Je t'apelle,


o nuit, rends-moi tes mensonges;


 


Reviens,


reviens radieuse


Reviens,


o nuit mysterieuse

Lovely ~ I knew it was a sorrowful enchanting tune, but I did not even know there are words!
I play this piece on my cello quite often ~
Blessings,
Christine
