Les falaises sont coupées avec l'aile de l'hirondelle.
Et, dans ces sanctuaires d'oiseaux sauvages,
Les chansons chantées sont pour vous.

Depuis que mon ange bien-aimé est mort,
Ceux qui cherchent me trouveront dans cet abîme,
Ses cheveux m'attachaient les mains.
Stars est un toboggan magique.
Pour comprendre le trouble d'une pierre..
Chanter aux fleurs.
Où j'ai laissé mon coeur.

mec nuage,
Comme ses cheveux sont beaux.
L'odeur t'emporterait maintenant
C'est comme les vents ivres que vous attendiez.

Mon coeur,
petites mains blanches tenant de la neige,
Ne t'a-t-il pas touché une fois ?
Personne ne peut connaître votre douleur;
quelle mère
Ni aucun autre amant.

Me too. Greetings for you and good vibes!


Actually same. In 2013. I was listening only to this song for a month. During the worst depression I've ever had
I'm really glad you're okay now


Its happening the same with me
