I'm corrupted
The memory of my youth I saw in the light,
Still now so far away.
From the darkness,
I yelled your name over and over again.
In that endless time, you were all I had.

Unable to atone for my sins with my life,
I shut myself
All I can do is pray... my sadness won't heal.

I tore off one leaf of a wet hydrangea
Float it in a puddle and remember you.
For some reason,
The sound of a steam whistle faintly blowing
From a far off ship in the sunset after the rain,
Makes me sad.

If I'm not to be forgiven,
Then I wish it was all gone
The pain, the suffering,
To a world where none of it matters.

Unable to atone for my sins with my life,
I shut myself
All I can do is pray... my sadness won't heal.
Your voice I heard from the gently weeping sky,
Laughing with tears in my eyes, I can't see...

The memory of my youth I saw in the light
Even that silent smile, now makes me happy
Even back then, a time we can never go back to,
We were smiling.
