I am awaiting the sunrise
Gazing modestly through the coldest morning
Once it came you lied
Embracing us over autumn´s proud treetops

I stand motionless
In a parade of falling rain
You voice I cannot hear
As I am falling again

Devotion eludes
And in sadness I lumber
In my own ashes I am standing without a soul
She wept and whispered: "I know"

We walked into the night
Am I to bid you farewell?

Why can't you see that I try
When every tear I shed
Is for you?
