Lyrics of Sebi

Ko so tvoje misli polne
lahko poslušaš, kako mi bije srce
Ko težko je tvoje breme
k meni se lahko zatečeš

Vprašaj, kaj me vodi dalje
So dosežki in razdalje
Kot list gre z vetrom in se mu upira
jaz grem s tokom in se mu upiram

Vedno se ne vidi zvezd
sam ostani sebi zvest
Ne govori mi oprosti

Ko solze v tvojih so očeh
pusti jih, da tečejo
Ko najine želje so različne
sprejmeš me in sprejmem te

Poglej me, je nujno, da ima vse pomen
Večnost in ta planet nista prijatelja
in jaz sem kot snežinka, ki čaka na pomlad

Vedno se ne vidi zvezd
sam ostani sebi zvest
Ne govori mi oprosti

Ni ti treba se dokazovat
Vežejo nas iste solze, isti strah

Vedno se ne vidi zvezd
sam ostani sebi zvest
Ne govori mi oprosti
