"Je veux être avec toi

Et Je ne aime pas sans toi"

Thousands of tears placing my mind into fire.

Loneliness I've gotten to inspire.


 
I wanted to love you when I didn't find myself in front of me

I wanted to hug you when I didn't wrap my hope so close to me.

I can't expect to see when I haven't opened my eyes.

Nam myoho is growing around where I fight to see my soul rise.

It is a winding road of devotion to nurture 

It is a narrow way of chanting to my future.


 

I wanted to run when I was not able to walk

I wanted to sing when I was not able to talk

I wanted to fly when I was not able to stand my ground

I wanted to speak when I was not able to hear my soul-sound.
 

I will be right back when I see myself in my eyes getting high

I will give my hands when I can find more than I could cry.
