some numbers remain
some numbers remain

I have forgotten how to count on,
all the promises
you have given me
I have forgotten the numbers

I have forgotten to subtract
all the good from the bad
the bad outweighs the good
I have forgotten the numbers

but I have not forgotten
that I love you
and that still has no measure
it seems some numbers do remain…

I have counted stars in heaven
but my numbers are never enough
all my days are numbered
it seems some days still remain,


and those days I cannot measure
because some numbers do remain…

to be born…
