the following lines, taken from vienna teng lyrics, are so deeply moving (for me, anyway) that they keep circling in my mind ever since i heard them:
- he said: “go where you have to,
for i belong to you, until my dying day.”
so like a fool,
i believed him and i walked away
vienna teng – blue caravan
so i ask you to meet me tonight,
by the gardens we walk in the twilight,
the roses abound by your side,
i will hold you and let you decide.
vienna teng – abound
andreas sahar – abound (vienna teng covered it)
you’ve got a journey to make
there’s your horizon to chase
so go far beyond where we stand
no matter the distance
i’m holding your hand
vienna teng – harbor
i’m a little disturbed by how much these words, combined with vienna’s soundscapes, provoke in me.
besides, i’m so addicted to “blue caravan” that i hear marika’s chello when it’s totally silent around me.
that last paragraph was written in early april, when the webcast of her house concert was online…

hi there — got here via a google search. but just a quick note that Abound was actually written by Andreas Sahar, not Vienna. though she covers it beautifully. and i agree: some of her lyrics are really amazingly good.
thanks for the note – i corrected it!
