Wistfulness on a Thursday Afternoon

I’m still a Wolfgang fan through and through. The group has disbanded some years ago and the reunion that was slated for this year has yet to come to fruition.

In the height of the band’s fame, I remember vowing that I could already die happily if I could see just one of their live concerts. And when the time finally came when got to see Wolf, Basti, Mon, and Manuel doing a live performance, I was dirty, mud-splattered, hoarse, and giddy. It was in 2001 and I was one of the handful of folks who were in the front row of the SU stadium stomping and sloshing up mud all over the rain-soaked field converted into the concert arena for the one-night event. I was screaming up at Basti, “Marry me! Marry me!” I dunno if he heard (hehehe). It was a happy, happy night.

Anyway, I have a song of them from their first album playing again and again in my head and I might as well sing the entirety of it coz I’ve managed to get the lyrics…

…Ah, to be very young again; feckless and restless and careless… 

 

Darkness Fell (Wolfgang) 

And so she woke up from a dream
That was beautiful and starry and oh so wild
It was all still clear in her eyes
And though her mind was foggy and blank
She wondered why her life coudn’t be as lovely
It was time
There was this king, He had no castle or throne
But his horse was great and white
He rode alone and he liked it that way
But when he met her, he swore
He would never leave her side…

They rode across the land
Two lovers hand in hand
And no danger could come near
And when something made her cry
She’d look at him teary eyed
And he would make her feel better…

Oh… so much better… so much better than before…

And now this forest was their home
It was the night time, and the right time for love
In the dark
She placed her hand upon his chest
And then all the rest just flowed
Making love down under an ancient far away night…

It was so grand
Just holding someone’s hand
And so safety came naturally… oh yeah…
It was so clear that she would never ever have to fear…

Oh, tell me a story
Of magic, and spiralling ships and stars in the sky
Just whisper in my ear
Make it soft and make it clear
I wanna hear every breathe you say
And now this forest was their home
It was the night time and the right time for love
In the dark
He placed his hand upon her breast
And then all the rest just flowed
Making love down under an ancient far away time…

And she woke up from the land
Tears fallin in her hand as she looked up askin why
She laid back in her bed, thoughts raisin in her head
“Why can’t my life be as beautiful?” she said
And she closed her eyes again, just prayin’ he’d return
But only darkness fell upon her…
