I'm staring at a glass closed rose behind, A glass armor door, as its rainy outside. Wondering where my Romeo will appear? In front of my eyes, Will he cross the field along the way? Or will I forever be alone? I'm looking for my perfect prince To fulfill this locket within my heart, As I don't want to leave my locket blank. Oh when will my Romeo show up?

Waking up to the sound of each bird, And having my hands filled with a million hearts, Hoping to find that heart, That will sync with mines. Breath for breath, And beat for beat, Come and make this heart sync. Giving it a reason to beat.
