I saw you before, was interested in you, but uncertain,
You might be shy, want to hide behind a curtain,
Not knowing before, now could I be sure?
The first time, you were delightful,
Now you still are like that, still so smooth,
But still we are living under two different roofs.
If I knew how you think about me, it would be nice,
Maybe I am hot like fire or cold like ice,
Your smile so special, it looks so wise,
What can I do? I need advice.
Something old turns into something new,
The heart’s fireworks melt the snow,
My feelings, I am ready to show.
Winter sorrow? No, not with you,
And even if you will not accept tomorrow,
I could not feel any sorrow.
But wait, it’s still to early to ask for more,
Just now, what’s your feeling, I’m not sure!
I heard a rumor, but is that person really you?
The many colours, they brighten the life,
And still you are nobody’s wife,
You are still young, the right one will arrive.
Is it me who can be yours? Oh, destiny!
So many sides of love I want to see,
So far away the ocean, so near their sound,
Could I be lying on the beach with you? Getting around?
So many thoughts enrich my day,
So many lovely feelings, all the time,
If you will accompany, that would be fine.
You deserve the right one with honesty,
What will it take?
Is there really nothing that could break?
I feel I impress you,
I see it when you are near,
At that time I am without fear,
But I am just too shy.
Can I hold your hand that winter night?
Can I kiss you, is it allright?
Can you sleep in my arms? I will hold you tight.
