lyrics

[Love at first fight?]


[Looking at the mirror of his small apartment with a ring in his hand, a young man is preparing for a date with his childhood sweetheart.]

When I see you smile I feel light in my heart
starring at your eyes like a work of art

I never seen someone like you before
my heart is pounding fast
I never felt like that in the past
wearing my best suit, freshly shaved
a fragrance to be praised
I hope you’ll fall for the gift I brought to you
How can I fail?
What could go wrong when I’m armed with my flower surprise.

[Now a happy married couple, their new life is cut short by a phone call. War has begun and Efferg Al has to join. He looks at his wife as if it was the last time wondering how he was going to explain that heartbreaking news to her.]

Do you remember the first time we met
in my Treehouse ?

She said, “I still feel the same way for you Efferg Al !”

I must leave now
Please don’t cry
I’m a soldier in the middle of a nonsense war
Fighting for my life, for my love, for my love, for my love

[Several months elapsed since the beginning of the combat. Disgusted by the atrocities of the war, he decided to desert to find his wife. Unfortunately she had abandoned the house, having had no news of her husband for months and the army on his heels for deserting the war, she fled with a broken heart.]

Where are you now? Where are you now?
You left me alone, I am frozen like a stone
Where do I go now? Where do I go now?
You became a monster
What should I do after?
