We see each other sometimes, we’re in contact year by year
How foreign your behavior now and how distant what I hear
When I was sleeping next to you all bad things disappeared
And still I like you so much but there’s too much that has changed

We’re gonna wash away like salt in water
Gonna wash away like footprints in the sand
And whatever we have left behind
it won’t come again

This life’s too short and valuable to let it flow away
So we took it all, filled with hopes, and threw it all away
Somewhere on the track we found each other and crossed our hearts
We went a while side by side and finally fell apart

We’re gonna wash away like salt in water
Gonna wash away like teardrops in the sand
And whatever we have left behind
it won’t be the same

Cemeteries are filling up more year by year
And one by one my beloved ones are finding a place here
The images of the past are tipping on my shoulder
But then they dry just like clouds or roll away like boulders

Whatever we started long ago is forever gone and split
It took both of us quite a while to leave our symbiotic traps
You can call it emancipation in a love relationship
Or just some rags left to re-sort and see what we can get

We’re gonna wash away like salt in water
Gonna wash away like footprints in the sand
And whatever we have left behind
it won’t come again

We’re gonna wash away like salt in water
Gonna wash away like teardrops in the sand
And whatever we have left behind
it won’t be the same
