Temporarily This Way


“Perhaps you thought you were in love—that was a long time ago.”

—Bond speaking to Severine.

Translation & Reinterpretation

You are free before the daylight sun,

And free before the nighttime stars;


You are even free

When you close your eyes

To all there is—


But you are a slave,

You are a slave to the one you love,

Because you love him,

And he loves you back.
