When I stay on the shore of the coast
My eyes are looking over the rolling sea 
And my heart feels the infinity of the mighty Atlantic.

I close my eyes and feel a loss in my heart.
You are here and you are gone at the same time
Like the waters of the tide of the mighty Atlantic.
I can see the brightness of your love in your eyes.
Of course, I know I should have let you go a long time ago,
But my heart just couldn’t.
And so, in all my foolishness I have to bear the blame of my cowardice. 

I open my eyes and have a look over the calm sea
And I realize
Something of myself is lost forever 
Like a boat in the roaring sea
Of the mighty Atlantic.
