What if my voice is low
If you had listened to me
Maybe some spring had bloomed
Maybe my heart could bear To live

But never mind
The time passes anyway
I become a spectrum in my utopias
And you do not love me anymore
You won't miss me

What if my voice is low
It has been heard far away by others
No matter if a fragile heart did not take joy
she gave birth to love and spread it
In the universes

Ah! My songs only
Ah! My songs only
Ah! My soul only
have been accepted by others
Never the whole of me

What if my voice is low?
Maybe you will hear me sometime
And then spring would bloom
And my heart would endure to live
