For the world must turn
And the fire must burn As the cold north wind blows God only knows
What would I know?
For a raincloud sheds it’s water
And the nights become shorter A sweet tune needs a melody Please somebody tell me
What would I be?
For a snowflake is cold
And people grow old And a ship in the sea Holds nothing for me
What would I see?
For lovers though cold
In long grass so bold And clouds gently roll Through the heavens they stroll
What would I hold?
For when memories of old
Are continually told And the feelings return A cold heart can burn
What would I yearn?
For a tree sheds its seeds
In the cool autumn breeze To settle and sow The new trees to grow
What do I know?
So for now my dear friend
No more thoughts can I send Please await my return More reasons to burn
And maybe we’ll learn
To love what is lost
Whatever the cost For I ask you dear friend What would I do without you?

A million reasons to smile, but none more than you; For every moment spent along, feels really good as new. A million reasons to sing, but I wouldn’t for any other; For you fill me with such joy, you’re my
We would try so hard to take each others’ pain, But in the end it’ll all be the same. I meant what I said, it was never meant to be a game. And I’ll never forget the day you walked
For a day must end A broken bone must mend And the dawn must break As a thief must take A river has to run And a bullet needs a gun As the leaves must fall From trees oh! so
In you, is the sunshine of the summer, That burns me to work harder and smile longer, Awakens me to challenge the world’s stubbornness ….. In you, is the dancing rain of the monsoon, Who takes me higher and rejuvenates
