Mom

Out of the shadows once again, my enemy, my love
Destiny can’t be avoided, no matter how much you’re prepared
But before you left, with golden ring
you proposed to me and didn’t save me from sorcery
and didn’t let my soul be free

Mum, you’ve been telling me not to desire
Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

I will throw away my dream and smash it on the floor
How you’ve broken my destiny and set it aside
I will pour girl’s tears like rain

Mum, you’ve been telling me not to desire
Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

Mum, you’ve been telling me not to desire
Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble

Mum, at that time I didn’t know where trouble lied
Mum, you’ve been telling me that time is like water
Mum, Mum, Mum, love is trouble
