You and me


Lyrics, translated:

You and me, sitting in the courtyard, a moment of bliss.
You and me, two figures, two faces, but a single soul.
You and me, far from the mingling lies, a careless joy.
Neither you are nor I am, we are one with love, you and me.

Searching more information on the musician and the source of inspiration led me here:

"Man o To" originally a poem by Rumi meaning Me and You, Berlin-based artist "Nu" real name Fabian Lamar sings in Persian. Rumi dedicated this poem to his soul mate Shams-i Tabrizi and expressed the adjoining two bodies become one. The size of their love is even beyond our understanding however we see the universality of Rumi in these verses.
