Lost in the wildness of my youth,
I greyed without knowing.
Same tongue that takes me to heaven
cuts me into halves.
Another storm has compelled them to dream,
another hunger has set their beds on fire.
Blind at night,
the city is nowhere near safety.
All I know is what I don't know,
what I don't know is everything.
Love melts me, takes me to heaven and back.
I was the shooting star you saw last night.
I am everyone but myself.
My fears scare me.
Going nowhere they found love,
and love warms them at night.
Going nowhere, endless the road goes.
All in the rain, I and the whole country,
all of us in the rain;
I alone the rain knocked down.
