When was the last time you felt excitement,'precious girl?

When was the last time you felt glad?

When was the last time you had enlightenment, 'precious girl'?

to see the reasons why you're sad.

Tell me, 'precious girl', when was the last time you you jumped high to rejoice?

when was the last time, child, your happiness was not destroyed?

What happened, 'precious girl'?

Why so many tears?

Who has hurt you in this life?

What has caused you fear?

'Precious girl', when was the last time you had love without driving you insane?

when was the last time, you didn't feel this pain?

Look at you, don't you see your death approaching very soon?

Your soul will drift away before the flowers bloom.

'Precious girl', take a look around and realize what you mean,

who has traumatized you more with the suffering you've seen?

What has hurt you so much and your happiness has narrowed?

Who has placed you in darkness ripping up the shadows?

What has made you so unhappy that you'll no longer make it through?

What has inhaled that unique essence that once belonged to you?

Who has left your body breathless lying on the ground?

Who has taken from your voice that bright melodious sound?

What has changed your point of view of life while destroying all your plans?

those that were solid as rock and now they're grains of sand.

So what is killing you and has changed your world?

What is happening to you, 'precious girl'.
