Låttexten från "Sleep" av bandet "Slowdive", omskriven med en magisk touch av William Shakespeare


Through slumber's perfect veil, I glimpse thee laugh,
Oh sleep, depart from me, elusive one,
Thou know'st my thoughts, my heart's unbridled chaff,
When thou art gone, my tears do freely run.
Dreams, dream away from me, and let the Lord
Embrace thee in his loving, steadfast arms,
Bow low, spare the reed, and let him afford
Thee peace and solace, free from life's alarms.
When I shut mine eyes, thy fate shall be free,
Released from earth's unyielding, mortal ties,
And if I see thee drown in life's harsh sea,
I'll dream away from thee, to peaceful skies.
