A stranger in the city of lights

Hey stranger, I don’t know why when I see you, I feel as if I’m brokenhearted.

You stand there like a statue, looking but not looking. Everything seems to pass you by.

I wonder what compels you to wake up from your sleep, or… maybe you don’t

Have you ever been in love? Did it make you leap? Or did it draw you even deeper into your shell?

Did your beloved understand you? Or did she cover up the hole in your soul then realised that she’s suck in that she was losing herself

Did you write your songs because only in that way you can feel her existence?

… With this, I’m letting you go

A girl who waited for a falling star

A girl kneeling on your stone
Waiting for a falling star
to answer her prayer living inside her.

Day by day the prayer was getting bigger and stronger that it took life on its own, possessing the girl’s vision, her hand, her feet, her skin, her ear, and her words.

One day, the falling star passed by in her marmalade sky
But she no longer sees nor hears
As the prayer evaporated into thin air
And she’s inside
