English Translation

The Moon Represents my Heart

How deep I loved you

How strong emotion within myself

You are wondering

My feeling is true

My love is never new

The moon represents my heart

How deep I loved you

How strong emotion within myself

You want to know

My passion for you is real

My devotion to you is a belief

The moon represents my heart

A tender kiss Moved me to the heaven

A love story between you and me

It’s alive ’til today

Would you think so Would you trust me
