+ So I put the misty dress on and tiptoed in the morning. I woke up the world with every step. +
+ And the closer I got, the deeper the cosmic pulse was echoing inside. +
+ And I looked at ourselves from the outside. And all the dreams were in bloom. +
+ From the depth of my love, I rose above the love. +
+ I wore the necklace. +
+ And held your hand. Even if you were not there.
+ The air was heavy. Our breathings pure. +
+ I wore the charm. +
+ I wore the earrings. +
+ I wore the scarf. +
+ I wore the ring. +

+ Until I could see myself clear and nothing hurt. +
+ Until I found my way back home. +
