Echo of her voice
Whispers in my ear
As a quit sun brease
Which suddenly disappears
Warming, tence and searching
Don't(?) melon(?) glowing(?) eyes
A little bird, for ever heard
Heard and seen in your small size

Like a butterfly
You flew away
To some other forreign place
And now the night and day
Oh, I don't know all your secrets
But your words are on my mind
I can feel your spirit
You have left your voice behind

<instrumental interlude>

Like a butterfly
You flew away
To some other forreign place
And now the night and day
Oh, I don't know all your secrets
But your words are on my mind
I can feel your spirit
You have left your voice behind
