When I asked to meet you again,
You behaved strange to me,
I just had a try,
But you didn’t agree,
It made me so shy.
I was sad in that moment,
I just wanted to cry,
I was strong enough,
But you made me so shy.
I just wonder if we really fit,
Or is there anything matching,
It wasn’t just the perfect hit,
Now the pain is catching.
My beloved, what did I do wrong,
Maybe I just had the wrong idea for a meeting,
Sometimes I feel my patience is gone,
Shall we go out for a coffee, or even go out for eating.
Have you been in a bad mood today?
Have you been tired?
My strength is fading away,
Anything you desired?
I still secretly love you, still try my best,
Even if there’s a lot of time wasted,
You are really not like the rest,
That’s the way, my love just tasted.
