Born from silence, silence full of it
A perfect concert my best friend 
So much to live for, so much to die for
If only my heart had a home

Sing what you can't say
 Forget what you can't play
 Hasten to drown into beautiful eyes
Walk within my poetry, this dying music
My love letter to nobody 

 Never sigh for better world
It's already composed, played and told
 Every thought the music I write  Everything a wish for the night 

 Wrote for the eclipse, wrote for the virgin 
Died for the beauty the one in the garden  Created a kingdom, reached for the wisdom  Failed in becoming a god

 Never sigh

"If you read this line, remember not the hand that wrote it
 Remember only the verse, songmaker's cry, the one without tears
For I've given this its strength and it has become my only strength.
 Comforting home, mother's lap, chance for immortality  Where being wanted became a thrill I never knew
The sweet piano writing down my life"

"Teach me passion for I fear it's gone
Show me love, hold the lorn
So much more I wanted to give to the ones who love me
I'm sorry 
Time will tell (this bitter farewell)
I live no more to shame nor me nor you

And you, I wish I didn't feel for you anymore"

A lonely soul, an ocean soul
