It is the second track of “Inner Quests – III”.

It was one of those simple nights, the end of something,
The weekend slowly fading away, carrying all the memories
Tomorrow won’t be the same, the start of a new cycle
You’re enjoying the last warm breeze

The animals are quiet, the city falling asleep
But in your mind it’s full of life, everything shaking around
You wish things had lasted forever
You’d like to stop the moments and freeze them in time

CHORUS
Tonight you’re here with your cup of tea
A simple moment, gazing at the stars
A last evening away from the world
And life is easy here and now

On the city rooftops, we take in the distance
The sky wasn’t really the same yesterday
Yet the moon and stars, everything was already here
Seems it was a million thoughts ago, at least

A naive slice of life, we want to make it special
Our eyes wanting to escape to our daydreams
We might think we’re at the end of a series
In which we loved every season, every character

CHORUS
Tonight you’re here with your cup of tea
A simple moment, gazing at the stars
A last evening away from the world
And life is easy here and now

Comment :
At that time, I wanted to write lyrics people can relate to. So let’s say this piece is both personal and universal.
I think it’s more “worldly”, or say kind of personal lyrics compared to other lyrics I write which are more mysterious, metaphorical. By “worldly”, I mean : rooted in reality, talking about the everyday life, maybe you know what I mean. Like I just said, I use to be more mysterious and “philosophical”. Still, they are filled with a lot of poetry.
More precisely, the text deals with the breaking point when you’re peacefully enjoying the week-end, or any other moment of peace, but there is that feeling, you know, in the Sunday’s evening. There is a tomorrow, there is something after this moment of fullness, something that might not be as fun as that now-moment. In fact, this is a mix of tranquil happiness and nostalgia.
“The end of something”.
I chose to illustrate this story with a picture in my mind, inspired by a “slice of life” imagery : you are with your love ones on a terrace, on a city’s rooftop. You feel the warm breeze at the end of the day.
Everything in the lyrics is trying to convey that special feeling and emotion.
