Just finished a custom ordered choker for my artist friend Miriam. Last year I made her a similar cuff.
As I was getting ready to take pictures of the choker, I opened some antique music sheets and what caught my eye was the title "Still as the night"... how appropriate, I thought. Curious to find some reference to the song, I researched a little bit about it and found out that it was written by Carl Bohm. He is regarded as one of the leading German songwriters of the 19th century.
Here is a very nice version of the original song in German:
"As quiet as the night and deep as the sea, your love should be!If you love me the same as I love you, I want to be yours."As hot as steel and as firm as a rock, your love should be !
Love, what would we do without it?
