Lyrics in Colloquial English

I pick an apple and wait for you to pass by, so I can give it to you to quench your thirst.

Just like a cool cola drink in the summer or a warm cup of cocoa in the winter, you are the right person at the right time.

We already planned to spend next weekend together. To me, your little bad moods…(leaves the sentiment unfinished)

I don’t know why, my old (romantic) wounds haven’t yet healed, but somehow you’ve barged into my heart, anyway.

CHORUS

You have helped me see the flower blooming in the desert. You’ve inspired me to write you a love song every day. I write the most romantic chorus and you sing along softly. We look at each other, and our eyes confirm our decision.

It is you who have turned my world from gray to pink. And from now on I will only allow you to have this position in my life. Love must be carefully carved. I am Michelangelo, carefully carving the most beautiful love.

BRIDGE

I use time to miss you, love is kinda sweet. My wishes will never change, love is kinda sweet.

Singable English Lyrics

I will save an apple as I wait for you here
Hope that it will help quench your thirst, my dear
Like a winter’s warm drink, or a Coke in the heat
You are totally the right one for me

You and I’ve already planned the end of next week
Your light mood swings are no biggie for me
I don’t even know why, old wounds haven’t yet dried
Yet somehow you’ve crashed right into my life

CHORUS 1

You have helped me see that even deserts have colorful blooms
You’ve inspired me to write a love song each day just for you
As I sing this little song
You are singing right along
And we know this choice we made isn’t wrong

You have turned my graying world back into the color of pink
It is you who’ve touched my heart and life with just your loyalty
Love has to be carved just so
I am Michelangelo
I’m engraving a love so beautiful

BRIDGE

Sometimes I’m missing you, Love is kind of sweet
And my wish, always true: Love’s for you and me
