A morning flight at the tip of light, Untangling vines of quarrels and spite, Swing back to unfinished work by the lagoon, And all this before the strike of noon.

Reigning her heart and believes in good.

But I am the girl with courage,

To believe that she always could.

I am the girl

Who can get scared,

But I’m not the girl

Who’d run away instead.


The girl who cried at night

About her taken memories,

I would rather take flight

Not away but for every day

Misfortunes that may come to me.

I am now the girl

Who stays behind to fight for me.
