Do not cry when I’m gone .
Do not cry for me at all.
I do not want to be remembered.
I want to disappear like I never existed
Do not lose tears for me.
Just forget me.
That is all I ask
I wrote it when I was very low
《Pulvis et umbra sumus》
“We are but dust and shadow”
Through the highs and lows
Trying to set your world aglow
Little do you know, nothing ever really changes
It’s all the same, as a time long ago
An always recurring cycle
Of trial and error, sucess and failure
Still you keep trying, defeat you won’t accept
Your aim, reach the pinnacle
Happening over and again
As you go about life, each and every day.
C’est la vie you say
But in the end, we are but dust and shadow…
“Sing in me, Muse,
and through me tell the story… ”
Sing in me, let your song resonate
Sing in me, let every note sound
Sing in me, let the words be formed
Sing in me, let the melody take shape
Through me, tell the story, tell your story
Through me, find a voice, find your voice
Through me, shed the veil you hide behind
Through me, let others see what I see
Through me, we’ll tell the story
And tell it we shall over and again, for all time
