The wind is loudly knocking on the window,
It’s the same than in my heart, I just feel so,
A restless heart is searching for peace, saying “let it go”.
The wind blows faster, faster and faster,
Outside there must be a big disaster,
Just like the pain in my heart that I can’t master.
My heart just can’t cool down,
Why the yours I cannot own,
My heart is broken as if it was thrown.
You cannot understand what a refusal means in heart,
You do not know how it feels, thousand broken pieces, apart,
Your coldness so near, the way I know you so far.
In my dreams I hold you tight,
The way to our heart, warm and bright,
But all I feel now, a cold frozen night.
