We’ve get along together
I’ve should have know
You’re the best that I can have
Until now it’s hard for me to face it
Why didn’t meet each other soon
I love them all behind you… only for you …
Would you believe it?
I put my trust on you
But deep inside I realize
That I can’t … No I can’t …
They were all my brothers
My crying happiness
So would you let me be myself?
Reach all my dreams and hopes
I know you know me better
I know you love me … you do …
Your eyes are more than anything
That’s really means to me
Darling would you now
Would you set me free?
Kita telah bersama
Aku seharusnya sudah tahu
Kamulah yang terbaik yang bisa aku cintai
Hingga kini sangat berat tuk menghadapinya
Mengapa tak segera saja saling bertemu?
Aku mencintai mereka dibelakangmu… hanya untukmu…
Bersediakah dirimu mempercayainya?
Aku menaruh kepercayaan padamu
Tapi jauh di dalam lubuk hatiku aku menyadari
Bahwa aku tak bisa… tak akan bisa…
Mereka semua adalah saudaraku
Jadi, maukah kau biarkan aku jadi diriku sendiri
Menggapai semua mimpi dan harapanku
Aku tahu, kau mengenalku lebih baik
Aku tahu, kau mencintaiku…
Matamu adalah lebih dari segalanya
Itu sungguh benar-benar berarti untukku
Sayang, maukah kamu sekarang
Maukah kamu biarkan aku bebas…
