Je Retournerai

A stirring new song on the subject of birth and rebirth. (Tweaked the mix a bit for blog readers)

Je Retournerai

From earth to sky

From wind to clay

From north to south

From night to day

Je Retournerai

From down to up

From out to in

From life to life

From yang to yin

Je Retournerai

this transparent moment

behind the moonlit evening like sand

my heart moves from demonic to cordial.

the warmth of your body gives it honor

Lonely early light of day
cracks at the walls of my house
transparent leaves of ancient rotten clay.

Sometimes a piece of the wind
petrifies like a soul in my heart

Je Retournerai

From here to there

From bed to hearse

From wet to dry

From bad to worse

Blaine L. Reininger was born July 10, 1953 in Pueblo, Colorado. Then he lived a life. By and by, he founded Tuxedomoon with Steven Brown in 1977. He traipsed around America, tuxedomooning until 1980, when he began to traipse around Europe. As a direct result of all of this traipsing, many musical compositions were composed, most of which found their way to some sort of mechanical device capable of reproducing musical compositions. This was mostly for the good. He now lives in Athens, Greece, where he is content.
