One, Two, Three
better hide from me.
Four, Five, Six,
don’t play any tricks.
Seven, Eight, Nine,
it’s you I’ll find.
Ten, Eleven, Twelve
I’m going to yell.
Thirteen, Fourteen, Fifteen, Sixteen
Seventeen, Eighteen, Nineteen, Twenty,
Twenty-one and now I’m done.
Ready or not, here I come!
I released my eyes from being covered,
trying to find you in every corner.
I kept searching from day and night,
with my love for you, I hold really tight.
They say follow your heart and you’ll find him,
so I walk, run, jump and swim
but I never found even a shadow of him.
I regret the day I pushed you away,
when all I wanted for you is to stay.
And no matter how hard I cry,
I can no longer bring back the old you and I.
And even if I count reversely,
it’ll never take us back to the beginning of our love story.
So instead I’ll repeat counting from one,
pretend that I’ll see you again as I sing this chant.
