... I have written it for my girlfriend and given her for the one-year anniversary.
Therefore my own and taken verses, comparisons and metaphors textually allude to the time of getting to know.
"Please, let me hold you tight / Till my footprints fade away" has to be taken absolutely literally because we were not able to say goodbye - while the snow was melting under our soles in the car in the wintertime.
Unlike this the chorus shall seem alone on the pictorial level. Here I quote from William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet". No one else could convert the longing, the fire of love ever into words like he did:
Are you going ? It's still a long time until daybreak. ... That sound you heard was the nightingale, not the lark. ... Believe me, my love, it was the nightingale."
It was the lark, the herald of the morn."
