Song stuck in Jerry's head 1 - Brightest Star Of The Night

Amazing song that I will do a video lesson soon! Until then, please listen to the song and enjoy my translation below:

My Translation

The brightest star of the night
Can you hear me?
I look up at you
Lonely and sighing so deep

oh the brightest star of the night
Do you recall?
We walked like a pair
While you vanished into thin air

Chorus

I pray for a heart and soul filled with purity
For eyes that cry freely
Give me courage again to believe
Past the lies to hug you tightly

The days when I can't find life's meaning
When I get lost in the dark
The brightest star of the night
Please guide me to your heart

Verse 2

The brightest star of the night
Do you recall?
You used to accompany me
Where are you now in the deep

oh the brightest star in the night
Do you still care?
Will you wait for the sun
Oh something else that comes near


Chorus

I would rather keep all the pain in my heart
And remember your eyes
Give me courage again to believe
Past the lies to hug you tightly

Whenever I can't find life's meaning
Whenever I get lost in my sleep
The brightest star of the night
Please light up the ground at my feet

I pray for a heart filled with purity
For eyes that cry freely
Give me courage again to believe
Past the lies to hug you tightly

Whenever I can't find life's meaning
Whenever I get lost in my sleep
The brightest star in the night sky
Please light up the ground at my feet


The brightest star in the night sky
Can you hear me
The one who looks up at you
Lonely and sighing deep
