he minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you,
Not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.
e are born with wings. Why prefer to crawl through life?

et the beauty of what you love be what you do.

ut beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I'll meet you there.
et yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.
