While I sat on my knees,
And wished upon a fallen star,
The full moon, the autumn leaves,
Singing birds and a zooming bright red car;
How I wished we could be together!
We haunted my thoughts,
Invaded my dreams,
We plundered my memories,
Making my stomach tie up in knots.
I tried to disengage, tune into another play,
Convinced myself the doors you closed will open some day.
A beautiful girl she was my friend,
I loved her the most; her joy and grief were mine.
She took my mate with her red lipstick!
On her wedding night, I sang and danced and poured her some wine,
Not knowing my world will soon come to an end.
He was a tall and charming man,
He was my friend since my childhood began.
On a cold dark night, I was lonely and sad,
Craving for some good conversation with the only pal I had.
The night was long and I emptied my broken heart leaning on his shoulder,
Instead of kind words his hands groped my chest in the hope of a lusty affair;
Befriending silence I found my way back up the stairs.
My heart was in pain, my head swam in anger and I grew colder.
I had lost faith, in friends old and new.
The ones who remained loyal were very few.
I knocked on your door,knowing you wouldn’t do me wrong,
I longed to find the warmth in your arms.
But you turned away and asked me to find another place where I could belong.
Lord, have mercy! My spirit can no longer bear these harms!
So I picked up the pieces, one by one, of my broken heart.
Your soul still resides in me; we will never part.
T’is is Destiny’s joke or a betrayal by Fate,
For one was my best friend and the other, my soul mate.
They told me to move on and be strong,
I listened, and so I wrote this song.
