From many miles
I saw her sad smile
And tear in her eye

Shone alone in the night
Changed her shape everyday
and went home alone again

Nobody was in the sky
She was very shy
and cried silently

I fell in love with her
I release a sky lantern
To make her smile again

Stars rose in the sky
Her eyes shone with joy

She was not alone anymore
Made the night more beautiful than ever

Even if I never met her in my life
I will still love her from a distance.

Maybe I can't tell
right from wrong
life from death
heaviness from emptiness
love from a lie
or your arms from mine

Still I'm sure to see
light inside something dark
matter inside the nothingness
heart inside an empty chest
care from broken hands

And when you say
the void is you
I shake my head
but follow through

Let me tell you what I see
A blackness that is dear to me
And even if you can't help but mind
my trust and care leaving your dark parts behind

I might as well be
A lantern, you see
And when the light catches you
We'll both follow through
One thing I can truthfully tell
it was never just darkness from the moment I fell

for you

O why, O why, O why was I born in this non-laternlit world?
O why, O why, O why was I born in this non-torchlit world.
What woe!
And try, and try, and try I do, to fulfill myself, all others, too!
And try, and try, and try I do, to remind myself, all others, too:

That it is not man's devices that light the darkness,
but the sun's brightness…
