Aching Heart

 

In the land of terror

A girl cannot speak her mind

She only sees darkness in the air

She cannot read her own mind

 

In the land of war

A girl lost in her own thoughts

She faces the future with fear

The darkness fits her aching heart

 

In the land of fadeless dreams

A girl cannot be herself

For her, nothing is real

Nothing is possible

And her youth is an expansion of despair

 

In the land of terror

A girl cannot dream

She only knows the eternal gleam

 

In the land of despair

A girl is worn out, exhausted

But still with a sparkle in her heart

She quietly shouts for freedom and joy
