lyrics

all the blossoms on the tree
shining pink and blue
children dancing in the street
dancing without shoes
tiny little butterflies one for every child
flying round for all the times
over land and sea

standing at the waterfront looking at the sea
all so quiet, world full of peace
send your dreams to me
under the sakura tree deep down underground
your heart’s still beating there for me
a treasure of our love

blossoms will blow away
clouds running fast
a pheasant in the street
a plumage so beautiful
shining in the sun
in any shade of colour
the rain is gone, the rain is gone

raindrops may fall again
bury our hands in the sand
raindrops like tears in the sky
rays of the sun like a blink of your eye

a blink of your eye
the touch of your voice 
the sound of your skin
the smell of your look
again and again
the breath of your hair
the grace of your hand
the face of your lips
again and again

blossoms will blow away
clouds running fast, so fast
under sakura trees
we will meet again one day

the love I could give
the life we could live
is buried down there
here under the trees
the kisses we’d kiss
the dreams we would dream
your hand on my skin
your looks on my heart
I feel everything 
we will meet again
an old melody
our ghost memory
