Long Road.
Eriks Esenvalds (b. 1977)

I love you night and day
as a star in the distant sky.
And I mourn for this one thing alone that to love, our lifetime was so short.
A long road to heaven’s shining meadow,
and never could I reach its end.
But a longer road leads to your heart,
which to me seems distant as a star, to me.

I love you night and day
as a star in the distant sky.
And I mourn for this one thing alone that to love, our lifetime was so short.
A long road to heaven’s shining meadow,
and never could I reach its end.
But a longer road leads to your heart,
which to me seems distant as a star, to me.

High above the arch of heaven bends and light so clear is falling. Like a flow’ring tree the world is blooming.
Overwhelmed, my heart both cries and laughs.

A long road to heaven’s shining meadow, and never could I reach its end.
But a longer road leads to your heart, which to me seems distant as a star.
