As we grew up
Together in the village
As young friends
In those dusty hills

Along the road
Gravity dragged us down
Gentle like autumn leaves
Either to fall in love
Or apart

And Life vicissitudes
Interfered
And I tried to play my part
From the core of my heart
Not to fall apart

Clearly
I was a fish falling in love with a bird
Living a dream of a hopeless heart
Impossible to fulfill

And hide and seek
The game we used to play
Down by the river side
And I realized
You’ve been always hiding behind lies
And I wonder why
