I held the book so tightly in my hands,
I saw your picture, heard you call my name
It was strange I could not look away,
I had to be there, I wanted to go

You gave me no reason
You gave me no warning
But I was with you,
Right by your side
Give me the strength, so I can help you
And I can be strong now, they don't frighten me

It's written in the book

The sun is hotter than before
