The Answer, My Daughter  5.00 / 5
Variations on Bob Dylan

If actually Bob asks – how long

“how long you need to be a man”

you haven’t got an answer and it’s not true

it is blowing in the wind – you just lost it

in spite of the time you still had

to chase the wind itself and make it yours

(now try to force your fate…

 

Forever young – as long as you’re next to me

I’ll follow the apprenticeship of your years

and sooner or later I’ll be ready to give you

the horizon that doesn’t answer to you yet

 

just like a woman know, my daughter

that it’s not easy to alter the course of events

with your wiles

 

if a hostile world appears

before your eyes, those of a growing child,

you only have to wait

you only have to believe – in yourself
