We do not need to say much about the life of Edgar Allan Poe as most is well known! These notes are about the poem that inspired us for the compilation "... Within A Dream"

The title of the poem, published in 1849, is "A Dream Within A Dream".

It is (It feels) like an exploration between two worlds, the real and the imaginary! Through the poem mortal life seems to slip like sand escapes through the hand that is trying to hold it back. Time is a reflection of life that we have lived. Like a dream within a dream!

The structure of the poem: it consists of two stanzas, each introducing a different scene and resembles the iambic rhythm. The first scene is in the first person, that of the narrator, who is separated from his lover and conveys a strong feeling that something is dying, ending. The second scene is placed on a shore and the "golden grains of sand", as they are characteristically referred to in the poem, become the symbol of time and the passing of life; just like the sand, as it passes from the top of the hourglass to the bottom!

Theoretically, the poem could be associated with the tragedies Poe faced in his short life and especially with the death of his beloved wife and cousin, Virginia.

The poem: "A Dream Within A Dream"

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow —
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand —
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep — while I weep!
O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?

Track Name: Nomenum - The Ocean
Song Tittle "the ocean"
translated to English :

Lyrics


The Ocean
I.


II.
On the pages of dreams
Dust of shadows lies.
Far from native shores
To the endless ice.
In dark waters’ depth
I shall rest alone.
Lonely fading sail
In the mist of dawn.

«A time there becomes an eternity…»

III.
At the end of Earth
In the mist of night
Icy walls come close
Mourning waves grew quite.
Pulled by mystery
To dark waters’ depth
Sinking sail of mine
Reaches the bottom line.

«Beyond the edge of the dream»

A time here becomes an eternity,
Eternity lasts just a trice,
Life here turns into immortality -
What will happen to you?

IV.
Dust of shadows lies
On forgotten pages.
Sinking sail of mine
In the sea of… faces?..

Time within becomes an eternity,
Eternity lasts just a trice,
Life within turns into immortality -
Who will you become?

Where the moonlight beam
Reaches the bottom line
Of the Sea of Souls
Beyond the Edge of the Dream?



-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Russian - original lyrics:


Океан
I.


II.
Пыль извечных грёз
На страницах снов -
Вдаль, от берегов,
В край безбрежных льдов,
В тайнах тёмных вод
Обрести покой -
В предрассветной мгле
Тает парус мой.

«Там время становится вечностью...»

III.
На краю Земли,
В предрассветной мгле,
Стихли вздохи волн -
Льды сжимают плен.
К тайнам тёмных вод
Манит глубина,
Тонет парус мой -
Достигает дна.
«За границей сна»

Здесь время становится вечностью,
Здесь вечность проходит за миг,
Здесь жизнь обернулась бессмертием -
Кем станешь ты?

IV.
Пыль забытых грёз
Скрыла мрак страниц -
Тонет парус мой
В океане… лиц?..

В нём время становится вечностью,
В нём вечность проходит за миг,
В нём жизнь обернулась бессмертием -
Кем станешь ты?

Там, где лунный свет
Достигает дна
Океана Душ
За Границей Сна?
Track Name: Houman Safai feat Laura Agerli (Lady Ghost) -The shores of sorrow
Song title: The shores of sorrow


Lyrics by Lory Fayer



I am here on these shores of despair
where black brides cries' filled the air
when from the tallest rampart towers
they threw on the sea farewell flowers
for their lovers that never came back
shipwrecked under the storms's attack
Ah - The shores of sorrow
Ah - The shores of sorrow

I am here on these shores of sorrow
tears / falling yesterday, today, tomorrow
on the wind battered rampart walls
only loneliness listens to my vain calls
my heart is full of thorns and sad feelings
only in the abyss it will find a healing
Ah - The shores of sorrow
Ah - The shores of sorrow
Track Name: Szepes R. Ritsu feat. Vamptessa Debbie - Endless Lullaby
Song title: Endless Lullaby

Lyrics:



~ Written by Daniela Paleohorinoù ~

Hush, sweet one,
Night has come;
May I lull
Your moonlight heart?

While you sleep and dream,
Of the Sun you fear,
Hold me near.

For I know your name,
And I'll hide your pain
In my sky.
Track Name: SAÐÆMØN feat. Lory Fayer - Lady Of The Portrait
Song title: Lady of the Portrait


Lyrics by Lory Fayer :


nameless shy Lady of the Portrait
they finally won the allies forces
you couldn't be there for welcoming
to hail them as heroes for winning
this victory for you came too late
war claimed a death toll to your fate
leaving astonishment on your face
paralysing you before a last embrace

Who was your waiting for my sweet Lady
what has astonished your eyes so shady
for who was your weak attempt to smile
to forget all that horror for a little while
tears when you don't see him returning
while around you the town was burning
on the walls still resound your screams
as a sudden blast stole all your dreams

Poor Lady how much fear in your eyes
bombs fell mercilessly from the skies
try to stretch your look beyond this hell
to the Place where all the angels dwell
follow the sun that goes down at west
It will lead you where your soul can rest
time washed away the blood and pain
children are playing in the streets again
Track Name: MorkeFaust & Helga Aethelwyne-Lure Of Sorrow
-Song Title:
Lure of Sorrow

Lyrics:

Flaming waters of Lethe, fragments of life reflect.
Scarlet waterfalls disclose, the poisonous enigma of existence.

Death's messengers crawl to me;
angels ill and demons cursed.
I feel my spirit howling from within.
Is that the Underworld I foresee?
Its gates are opening for me?
A nature silent, almost extinct.
Its silence mourning, a morbid lament whispers to me,
as sorrow's veil lingers upon my flesh.
Here, I shall lay,
together with the fragrance of despair and a memory void.

Cursum perficio!
Aeternum vale!
Macaria, grant me my sweet release!
Track Name: Somnimorte B.C. feat Karina Eames - Dream Within A Dream
Song title "DREAM WITHIN A DREAM"

Lyrics:



Take this kiss upon the brow!

And, in parting from you now,

Thus much let me avow—

You are not wrong, who deem

That my days have been a dream;

Yet if hope has flown away

In a night, or in a day,

In a vision, or in none,

Is it therefore the less gone?

All that we see or seem

Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar

Of a surf-tormented shore,

And I hold within my hand

Grains of the golden sand—

How few! yet how they creep

Through my fingers to the deep,

While I weep—while I weep!

O God! can I not grasp

Them with a tighter clasp?

O God! can I not save

One from the pitiless wave?

Is all that we see or seem

But a dream within a dream?
Track Name: Le Choeur Des Ombres - The Oval Portrait
The Oval portrait



She was a maiden of rarest beauty
And no more lovely than a full of glee
And evil was the hour when she loved the painter
He had already a bride in his heart

She was a maiden of rarest beauty
And no more lovely than a full of glee

From hour to hour
And from day to day
The painter had grown wild
Turning his eyes from her
He was a passionate
And wild and moody man
Who became lost in reveries
Day after day...she...more...dispirited and weak

And the spirit of the lady
Flickered up as the flame
Within the socket of the lamp

He lost her
He lost her
Track Name: Lacrymosa Aeterna - Shrine of Eternal Elegy
Song title:
Shrine of Eternal Elegy

Lyrics:

~ Written by Daniela Paleohorinou ~


Beneath the waves, the sanctum of my cries...
In wind's embrace, so free now soar my sighs...
Oh, my beloved, tis thee I see afar?
Horizon's lie, fool's paradise!

"Maiden's tear,
Sealed in this shrine,
To thee they yield,
The tides of time!"

Fare thee well,
My longing shall bless thy sails!
Amidst all paths forlorn,
Wail does the one called home...

Alas! Fate invaded dreams, revealing to me a lament made of stone!
Track Name: Shelter For My Deer - Song
Tittle : "Song"

Lyrics:

I saw thee on thy bridal day –
When a burning blush came o'er thee,
Though happiness around thee lay,
The world all love before thee:

And in thine eye a kindling light
(Whatever it might be)
Was all on Earth my aching sight
Of Loveliness could see.

That blush, perhaps, was maiden shame –
As such it well may pass –
Though its glow hath raised a fiercer flame
In the breast of him, alas!

Who saw thee on that bridal day,
When that deep blush would come o'er thee,
Though happiness around thee lay;
The world all love before thee.
Track Name: Michael Plater - The Officer's Mess
Song title:
"The Officer’s Mess"

Lyrics:



A clay pipe for the archaeologist
Send in the ventriloquist
The medium and the spiritualist
This is the officer’s mess

Alert the anaesthetist
Make way for the resurrectionist
Put them all to the test
This is the officer’s mess

Bring the hypnotist
The priest and the exorcist
Down here we’re all possessed
Down here at the officer’s mes

And all of those on that list
The cursed and the blessed
And all of those that I might have missed
Bring them on down to the officer’s mess
