Spoken words by David Sylvian on this track from the album Async by Ryuichi Sakamoto


The track includes the poem 'And This I Dreamt, And This I Dream' by Arseny Tarkovsky from the bundle 'Life, Life'.


And this I dreamt, and this I dream, 
And some time this I will dream again, 
And all will be repeated, all be re-embodied, 
You will dream everything I have seen in dream. 

To one side from ourselves, to one side from the world 
Wave follows wave to break on the shore, 
On each wave is a star, a person, a bird, 
Dreams, reality, death - on wave after wave. 

No need for a date: I was, I am, and I will be, 
Life is a wonder of wonders, and to wonder 
I dedicate myself, on my knees, like an orphan, 
Alone - among mirrors - fenced in by reflections: 
Cities and seas, iridescent, intensified. 
A mother in tears takes a child on her lap.
