Run, why should I run away
When at the end the only truth certain -
One day everyone dies -
If only to justify life.
Live, I've lived a thousand lives;
And anyone is the right, the just life.
If I could cry, I'd cry for everyone.
Doubts, no doubt, is all I know.
There is no fate, there's no luck,
Showing is proof, but proving is nothing
If I could cry, I'd cry then for everyone.
Hope, I've hoped two thousand years,
No one hears, so I've cried, crying
Always too late, too late to cry, cry
