Rainy town is crying
Like a childless mother
Chestnut trees are waving to acacias
Cheering up the girl beside the window
Wrapped up with her prayer
She’s in heaven…
Is she?
For how long?
Pipe water whispers in his language
On a melting body
Fading like a ghost
Her heart is not at home
It follows him around
Across the boulevard
Another restless night
Who cares?
She is in heaven…
They are just the same.
I see him coming
With the ring of lantern light
Cry, Rainy town!
Your tears will turn to diamonds.
