What if we were rain drops and together
Emerging we then fell out of our heaven
Separated ah! Yes, but not within
Say we’re detached, yet birds of a feather.
We can fall and freeze just as does snowflakes
But on our descent, we’ll follow each other
In our spirals falls, we’ll sleep as soulmates
Melting each into the other my lover
Say, wouldn’t it be fun if we were the hailstone
Falling on the heads of those living ghosts
All waxy pale and cold frozen to the bone
Hey, say, love, wouldn’t it be something to boast.
If we were tears in two lovers happy, eyes
Laughing loudly, looking up at the skies.
