In a world where at the same time half are asleep and half are awake;
Where both sun and moon reflect on a lake;
Where love and hate are felt at once;
Even a smile and a tear could mean one.
Ironic how distance gets closer every second you step away.
No matter how curves and turns take you on a detour from me,
Still, this world is round and crazy.
One day when it turns upside-down,
We'll wake up and our eyes will align—
With me in my gown as I walk down the aisle.
