Tear apart those memories of days gone by with your own two hands

Strangle the life out of your sadness

Pierce that heart that hungered for love

 

As I gaze at this sky, full of the promise of tomorrows to come,

I don’t know what to do with this heart of mine that just keeps losing its way

The bird that flew past me – I wonder if it spotted a light somewhere

Say, bird, won’t you give me a lift?

And then, abandon me at the highest of heights, as far away from kindness as possible

 

Tear apart those memories of days gone by with your own two hands

Strangle the life out of your sadness

Pierce that heart that hungered for love

 

The bird flew off into the twilight

All I can do is crawl on the ground and feel the wind’s caress

Ah, well, it’s not that I want wings

At the very least, I’d like to be a leaf from the Melissa tree, whirling in the air

 

Already, I’ve been simply standing here so long

There probably aren’t any answers to be found

Just like the aimless wind….

 

With your own two hands, put the key in the lock – don’t waver, don’t hesitate

Even if it’s the wrong thing to do, make sure that lock can never be opened

Let it all end with the sound of the lock falling into place

 

Souls that know no salvation drift away and vanish

In the very moment when they disappear, a tiny spark shines

And a full moon lights the night
