A corner, so lonely in the dust,
The voices that the wind trusts,
So fast coming near and happiness comes true,
July, my heart still beats in passion for you.
When I feel lonely I feel the mood of winter,
Somehow warm, but in heart, the pain feels like a splinter,
Don’t go away my July, I know August is coming soon.
So hold my hand and follow me as long as I can dream.
June is warm and lovely,
But July is even nicer,
When you move forward you can get wiser,
And you will understand the summer of life.
A corner so lonely in the dust,
You disappear behind the corner that you trust,
So far away and happiness comes true,
I’m still happy even without you.
