The strings play
to the soul of me.

In my world
there is no

better cure
than gravity.

To lay
in the field

and know that
I’m held down.

In the song
I play you,

the chorus is
of friendship.

I love you till
the ending.

Let my love

let my tempo
always be allegro.

Let my soul shine
through the window.

When there’s
no sun,

let my soul
shine through.
