When he turned eight, he tried the kiss of the fate
Out of love he wrote, her name on a paper boat
Let it flow to his queen, let his heart be seen
For princess he would sing, pretending to be a king
Years of drizzling came, but it never rained the same
Perhaps his heart was made to shrink
Perhaps his boat was designed to sink.
Somewhere else in the rain, she was loving her pain
For hours she would stand, with his boat in her hand
She knew from where it came, she knew who loved her name
Till when would the universe hold, this love to be kept untold
Should they wait a few more years
Should rain shed a few more tears
Or, let them be afloat, together on a boat.
