Die Dans op die teerpad van Cristiana-Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire

Liner Notes: 

A friend wants to get into songwriting

The dance in the road by Christiana- Jaco Louw

1. Morning gold
over the mountain.
Sun bag red
across the bay.
The last stop
Hide from us
We live now
Keep guessing forever.

2. Star eyes.
Will you find me.
Nobody knows,
just me and you.
When the world stands still.
We remember together.
There's always a place here
In my heart for you.

Choir: We dance!
We dance in the galaxy
We dance over the mountain
Pick stars and make orbits
We turn
We turn around the sun
We dance on the tarmac
We dance in the ground
And get lost a thousand times
Hands, mouths, eyes
And on a dusty road at Christiana
Dance us!

Bridge: Seasons stay
slippery stones
In trapped waterfalls
Will stay the moment.


Die dans in die pad by Christiana- Jaco Louw

1. Oggendgoud
oor die berg.
Sonsak rooi
oor die baai.
Die laaste stop
Kruip vir ons weg
Ons lewe nou
Bly ewig raai.

2. Sterre oë.
Sal jy my kry.
Niemand weet,
net ek en jy.
As die wêreld stil staan.
Ons saam onthou.
Hier’s altyd plek
In my hart vir jou.

Koor: Ons dans!
Ons dans in die melkweg
Ons dans oor die berg
Pluk sterre en maak wentelbane
Ons draai
Ons draai om die son
Ons dans op die teerpad
Ons dans in die grond
En verdwaal ‘n duisendmaal
Hande, monde, oë
En op ‘n stofpad by Christiana
Dans ons!

Brug: Seisoene bly
klippies gly
In gevangde watervalle
Sal die oomblik bly.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Thank you for the translation. The imagery and poetry of the lyrics are a beautiful dance. The arrangement and melody are superb.
