i found the strength to say this now
after years of crying shame
the wounds i had seem to be healed
cause now i found my way again

a little twinkle of starlight
has made the raging waves subside
my rabbit heart has opened up
into the wind i throw myself with everything i got

the minutes now are in the air
the glow of time is spreading everywhere
embracing warmly all the space
you made the planets move to make a place for us to live

the way our lips combine i won't let go
the warm embrace that speaks to me

the roses in the breath of a sleepless night
i'll never let this get away

i found myself in you again
i wanna feel you close to me
