מיליון כוכבים בשמיים
תופסים את הצבע שלך בעיניים
רציתי שניה אחת לומר לך שלום

A Million Stars

You wanted to fly
you wanted to move further
with a half smile you went up.
A million stars in the sky
are catching the colour in your eyes.
Just give me another second to say goodbye to you.
You wanted to fly,
you went too far.
In the midst of craziness, there’s no one to protect me.
A million stars in the sky
are catching the colour in your eyes.
I wanted a second to say goodbye to you.
I wanted to sing, you picked up a guitar.
An angel plays for me now, so with you I sing.
A million stars in the sky
are catching the colour in your eyes.
I wanted to sing for you, to say goodbye to you.
I wanted a second to say goodbye to you.
Just give me another second to say goodbye to you.
