Twenty-seven steps, twenty-nine regrets,
Two look-backs at you whom I’ll never get.
Just one half a sigh while I’m still here.
Million tries to go. And leave. With zero tears.

By me



Scarlet and Black

You never were the one to understand my pain,
To shield me when I was standing out in the rain.
I was too proud to ask, I was too proud to call,
‘Cause who are you to me, after all?

Sending scarlet fire in the black sky…
But the stars I want to burn are too high.
Scarlet love, black remorse – all together now,
Oh how I wish I could fix it all – just tell me, how?

I never dared to throw my arms around your neck,
But when you were leaving, I kept on looking back.
You never realised you loved me deep inside,
But kept a thought of me every night…

I know there’s still a hope lying on dusty street,
Lost there by other fools who’re just like you and me.
Look down – I know it is lying right at your feet,
Take it – and maybe you’ll admit I’m all you need.

It was long ago I realised you were mine
And the days without you did not feel fine,
Do confess now that you’ve loved me all along,
So that we can put a happy ending to this song.

Sending scarlet fire in the black sky,
Feeling almost as if I was ready to fly,
Black remorse over now, scarlet love to bloom
Hopefully, as far as calling you my bridegroom…

By me


Standing on the Bridge

Standing on the bridge, looking in your eyes,
Seeing neither hell, nor paradise.
Standing on the bridge, say which one is true –
Whether I just like or love you.

Leave me on the bridge, go as far as hell
(Or you are an angel – cannot tell),
Leave me on the bridge, see which one is true –
Whether I will bless or curse you.
