Can you find the time to let your lover love you?
He only wants to show you the things he wants to learn too.
The hardest parts you'll get through, and in the end you'll have your best friend.

Love like this may come once; baby it's fate.
Like a soul mate, he's your penguin.
Baby it's fate, baby it's fate, not luck.

Can you find the time to let your lover hold you?
He needs somebody to hold to, his love is strong and so true;
His arrow is aiming for you and he's the one that you were born to love.

Love like this may come once; baby it's fate.
Like a soul mate, he's your penguin.
Baby it's fate, baby it's fate, not luck.

Let go; let go of time for you and I.
Let go; let go of time for you and I.
Let go; let go of time for you and I.

Love like this is all I want, baby we're fate.
Love like this may come once; baby we're fate.
Like a soul mate, you're my penguin.
Baby we're fate, baby it's fate, not luck!

    I think this song is about how a lover will get through the hard part of a romance and get into the part to find the soulmate. Penguins are nice animals and they are very loyal to their soulmate. I think this song is suggesting that there is someone who you were fated to be with as your soulmate. Definitely that one is considered as your "penguin". I think this song is one of the best songs I have heard, it's romantic, but it's still realistic. It reminds me of my own experience. I thought I was in love with someone but actually I wasn't. He did not love me, in another word, he is not my penguin. Meanwhile, there was someone else in my heart who I cannot shake a bit at all. Then isn't he supposed to be considered as my "penguin"? I did not dare to rush into it, because he might be my "best friend" as well. I am still too young, which means I may not even know the meaning of fate. But this song gives me confidence to face my real self, to not deny my emotions. It's a gentle but also powerful song. I love it!

    Shortest but most sencere way of telling someone how much they mean to you in the way that only an always love will speak of.

    The one whom you thought an ordinary person around you, but the fact was, his the most of all! More than a treasured thing!

    Everyone wants to find their soulmate but few people ever experience it. This song is about how love ought to be as opposed to how it is now. This song describes true love that many people believe doesn't exist because it is so rare. Nowadays, people are not into sacrifice and doing everything to make things work but they rather jump from one failed relationship after the other. If you are lucky to have experienced a soulmate experience than it's like winning the lottery! - jimmy celi
