Deep in my soul forgotten words,
Deep in my brain forgotten names,
Deep down forgotten memories hurt
And burn my heart like angry flames!

But suddenly the sun comes out
And all the rain has flown away!
Go, all you monsters in my head,
Let me enjoy this lightfull day!

And all the tender waves of wind
Are gently covering my face.
Oh, guilty mind, flow off my brain,
Let me enjoy this funny place!

And all the light falls on my eyes,
And cuts my thoughts just like a knife!
Oh, sweep away these empty sighs,
And let me feel that I'm alive!
