Time doesn’t know the value of friendship
Or the value of tears in the sea;
These drops are for feelings I wish you could know
where in this world this lonely heart sleeps.
A heart so heavy with unknown wishes.
I wish you to know why I tell these wishes to you
So that you know their worth, these hidden desires.
I am the lonely drop that floats in the water
My heart is crying,
Like a glistening star lost in the galaxy.
I am the one that wants to be the sky’s shining star
But instead I walk in the desert, from wonder to wonder
Searching for answers
Hoping that regrets will not touch me
I wish you could know how the unknown
Wishes will end.
