Lyrics:
Sleeping ships (translated lyrics)

There are times to rest in the daytime
There are times to reset your goals
There are times to harvest success
There are times to search your soul

And at night the ships are sleeping
And slowly you drift by
The sails of dust have been lowered
Where you are going, I can’t come along

Once I had a father and mother
But my father went another way
A while ago he found me in my dreams
I felt him standing behind me

And at night the ships are sleeping
And slowly you drift by
The sails of dust have been lowered
Where you are going I can’t come along
