Haha... I was just thinking that... how many people actually read the posts before they posted worthlessly... lol.

At first I wanted an answer, so I could share in the meaning, b/c I just "KNEW" that if I knew the translation I could understand why it could sound so beautiful, but that's just the point. You know how some things you just can't define in words, this is a beautiful way to express those kind of feelings without ruining it by language. Not knowing the title or any language I could feel the meaning of the song better than anything words could ever say.
