Do I...?

As the boat is sailing I looked and turned back
Will the world see me as a human or as a fool?
She’s sailing a sea, not just swimming in a shallow pool
Will my sins ever get forgiven, or will I live in pain?
Will my long struggle give out its fruit, or will it be in vain?
			Do I love you…?

Rocks sift to light dust by time, and so our own time
Caring for someone never was my goal, but my crime
Dimness of the past blinded me, and so I never saw
I just went along with others, and walked with the flow
Running after the troubles, as if they were my life
			But do I love you…?

Shadows rose from the ground to cover the holy skies
They covered my destiny, yet swallowed my disguise
I suddenly realized how empty life is without her
If she just comes back, if just the sea drifts her back
Why have I not felt this before? I wonder what I lack…
			Wondering: Do I love you…?

Waiting each and every day, waiting for her name
Waiting for the time I just blow up and exclaim
Waiting for the name to be said anywhere
Waiting for the time I just ask and actually care
Waiting to see how quite life is when she’s around
Why am I so mad? Why can’t I just forget everything?
			I suddenly asked: Do I love you…?

Am I ashamed, honored or just too confused to know?
I love her a day, and I hate her the next… how can I decide?
Kidnapping nothing from my life but her sweet memories…
God… Will you give me one more chance? But will I take it?
Hesitating throughout my whole life, and how can I not do?
I wonder if the sea will ever make my imaginary wish come true…
I have few words left, and these words are for no one but you
			Three words and no more: I love you…
