Beyond this body and beyond this shape
a sad heart is waiting to escape,
beyond my smiles and my undying lies
there’s fears and a soul waiting to rise.
My beautiful wishes and hopes for tomorrow
are slowly turning to endless sorrow!
Lots of words need to be said,
and a lot of tears will be shed.
Time is passing and so do people,
Oh! Help me angel!
So many regrets of an unlived life,
so many mistakes, what a shameful life!
I have nothing to say more
about my feelings and my inner war.
Therefore, God sent me good people,
who treated me like an angel!
Dear God I want to thank you,
for showing me that peace can be true.
God I thank you,
for the great things,
and for the bad things too!
