We Were Hardly Sexual Beings


We were hardly sexual beings

We sang along in the glade

We talked about love

We never thought of pain

 

We were hardly sexual beings

We did not have a curious thirst

To discover more and more

We could sleep and dream of fairies

In a cosy, protected four-walled house

While wolves howled around outside

Seeking sharp love to pierce the night

 

And we were hardly sexual beings

We woke up and looked outside the window

And smiled to hear the birds chirping

High above on the birch tree

We didn’t think about the reasons why

We just loved to hear the music

 

We were hardly sexual beings

We loved our mom and dad

We loved our brothers and sisters

We didn’t believe in anything bad

Only in Santa Claus and a tooth fairy

And happiness and freedom

 

We were hardly sexual beings

We didn’t crave companionship

We didn’t long for a caress

We didn’t spend nights

Pining in the dark

Or loving in secret

Or sharing wild passion in the shadows

 

We were hardly sexual beings

We would have laughed if anyone had told us

That we would grow up some day

Because we would think it impossible

Because it wouldn’t feel like us

And we’d say, ‘we are hardly sexual beings’

And we’d run off to play
