The path of living has lost its way

The path of living has lost its way

"Say, maiden, wilt thou go with me
Through the valley-depths of shade,
Of bright and dark obscurity;
Where the path has lost its way,
Where the sun forgets the day,
Where there's nor light nor life to see,
Sweet maiden, wilt thou go with me?"

(J. Clare in Invitation to Eternity)
Namur (B)

Clung to the bridge

Clung to the bridge

“Walkin’ on the footbridge high above the clouds
Listenin’ to your yesterday, didn’t make a sound
And dazzled by your sweet lips and touchin’ on me
Here comes trouble, can’t you see?”

(The cars in Go away)
Flemalle (B)

Restlandschaft

Restlandschaft

"Wir teilen ein in Ort und Raum,
In Licht und Schein, in Kraut und Baum,
Sind Euler und gewinnen Preise;
Doch noch im Grabe sagen Weise:
Das Leben ist ein Traum."

(J. Gleim in Das Leben ist ein Traum ...)
Grâce-Hollogne (B)

Crossing in trouble

Crossing in trouble

“Ain’t talkin’, just walkin’
I’ll burn that bridge before you can cross
Heart burnin’, still yearnin’
They’ll be no mercy for you once you’ve lost.”

(Bob Dylan in Ain’t talkin’)
Lanaken (B)

A bridge to nowhere

A bridge to nowhere

“The air is getting hotter
There’s a rumbling in the skies
I’ve been wading through the high muddy water
With the heat rising in my eyes
Every day your memory grows dimmer
It doesn’t haunt me like it did before
I’ve been walking through the middle of nowhere
Trying to get to heaven before they close the door.”

(Bob Dylan in Trying to get to heaven)
