Heaven became a harbor for the love
We carried through all obstacles it's faced.
We raised it to this spiritual place, above,
Where it obtained ethereal, inimitable grace.

Does that exactly mean our love's eternal?
Unfading scar from Amor's touch.
Nothing can live forever being vernal
Old man pursues his youth trying to clutch.

First kiss since I have found you here:
Impatient lips coalesce into one whole.
We aren't aware that destiny intends to let a tear
Foully desecrate this seal of love and take control.

Some bitter drops are ready to appear.
A terror lurks somewhere deep inside
Waiting for moment that is so near,
When the deserted Earth takes in heavenly light.

I wish this torrid kiss wouldn't be over,
It's so strong, unbridled like never before.
I don't regret about suicide for I was loner
Two hearts singing rock ballad on the Heaven's shore.

I feel like we are about to collapse
Onto the trembling, almost riven ground.
Ardor's intoxicated minds, perhaps,
Forcing such bright, vivid delusions to surround.

Our ground is actually lofty, reachless skies.
They're cleaving into parts, crumbling away.
I'm not going to let this ruin our holy ties –
Shattering power my nature won't blindly obey.

We see the sky, it's falling down
Why didn't we deserve mercy of God?
Voluptuous thoughts provoked us to drown
In worldly pleasures they unintentionally begot.

Short happiness we shared in that Eden
Turned into drama with the hazy end.
Our love is doomed. Was it somewhere written
That we would find peace not in the sky nor on the land?

We keep courageously standing here, eye to eye.
I give you hug even the falling sky can't sever.
Once going through death, did we gain capability to fly?
I won't release you from embrace, I'll never.
