Oh, tell me what it’s like
Love? I’ve never been there
How does it make you feel?
Is it like spring, like cherry blossoms?
Or the warm summer wind,
Soothing, like the shade of the enormous trees
Or slightly sweet and sour like the taste of the tamarind
What makes your heart skips a beat?
What makes your soul feel at ease?
This love you say is enchanting,
Is it a spell someone casted?
Why you care so much?
Why you feel so delighted?
Ah, I envy you
Cause you are drowned in the spectrum of love
As for me, I’m blind
To perceive the world in contrast of black and grey
As this heart is frozen for decades,
Encrypted and more twisted in different ways
What makes you so chirpy?
Is this love that keeps you holding?
How does one finds it?
I heard it changes you,
I heard it gives you meaning
Does it happen to the person who is broken?
What about those who’ve gone so far?
Or those who’ve lost everything
Will they ever return from this shallow dark?
This love you say is empowering
Powerful enough to uplift you, make you stronger
It’s like the ethereal colors are magnificently poured
And portrayed on the plain white canvas
What’s the beauty of this feeling?
Why people try to clench
Even if it’s a little ray of hope
Why love is so warm and compassionate
Over the emotions of hate, betrayal and sorrow
So tell me,
Is love enough to domineer the storms of dispair,
Enough to break the chains of pessimism
Enough to draw my insecurities away?
Is love worth the wait
Or is just a mere fantasy of one day
So now I’m out in the world holding my heart
In the world full of infinite possibilities,
Hoping for something new
So tell me,
Can I trust on my fallen stars?
Or on my instincts that drags me back,
Back towards this feeling
Back towards you
