(we should often reflect on this)

i will grow old
i will grow old and grow

apart from all that's dear to me

i will grow old

in the end
there will be no one
next to me

age will happen
even to me
i will gain illness
and, looking back,

will finally see what it is to be so well
and free

i have made huge mistakes

i have been ungrateful

i have been

i have given everything
i have
and everything
i am

to manipulate the truth

i fall heir to all of this
even to forgiveness

(we should often reflect on this)

in the end
i will lose
everyone and
i will lose
especially my way
that dawn will break
fearless as the heart
after an earthquake
