about

(Savarino/Snyder)

lyrics

A cherry blossom blooms in spring
Divine wind brushes your hair
This loneliness, will it ever end

A leaf floats from above
The moonlight bathes your face
This loneliness, will it ever end

Will someone ever miss me
I’m afraid I’ll die alone
Will someone ever complete me
A self-fulfilling prophecy

Atop the peak of the mountain
The eagle’s flight so majestic
This loneliness, will it ever end

Engulfed in a blazing inferno
Submerged in a deep blue sea
This loneliness, will it ever end

Will someone ever miss me
I’m afraid I’ll die alone
Will someone ever complete me
A self-fulfilling prophecy
