I close my eyes and hide those dreams,
That will not see the light.
Why does it feel when I’m with you,
That everything is right.
Someone has given you his name,
We have to stay apart,
But when had you stretched out your soul,
And handed me your heart?
Your fragrance sweetens someone’s night,
Your smiles brighten their day.
And all I get are whispered words,
A thousand miles away.
How much I want you in my arms,
How many times I cry,
And though I breathe, I eat, I live,
How many times I die?
