|Please come back to me,
Following memories To the source of gentleness and dreams, In order to be born, and shine to the stars Once again...
Your naked skin wrapped in blue shadows Trembles quietly in this moment Your fingertip searches for me, As if asking for the whereabouts of life
The you that was embraced by fate Blooms in season like an ephemeral flower Leaving behind the scent of hope on your chest Scattering hurriedly in splendid form
Please come back to me, Before you are born To the earth you spent your days on Please come back into my arms, To meet again Miracles do happen, however many times
When eyes are closed as if in prayer The world simply disappears there into the darkness Even so, my heartbeat starts again Looking for a bounded eternity
Please come back to me, Following memories To the source of gentleness and dreams. You, too, please come back, So we can love each other. Heart and body repeat
Please come back to me, Before you are born To the earth you spent your days on Please come back into my arms To meet again Miracles do happen, however many times
