Lift the glasses! For another year passed by, a reason to rejoice! Lift the glasses! For the childhood vanishes in the past, a reason to rejoice! Lift the glasses! For the end of the world as we know it is nigh, a reason to rejoice! ... Me and my friends, we lifted the glasses. And then, as hours passed by, still amidst my friends I suddenly felt alone. Sad, alone and depressed, with no one to hold my hand through these times of dark. She who loves me? Far away, out of my arms' reach... My muse? Didn't even wish me well... And all the friends? Party over, all gone -- asleep, sick, at home or lost in thought... On a supposed day of joy I was suddenly alone. Sad, alone and pondering, hand touching my forehead, eyes peering through these times of dark. Another year passed by, the childhood vanishes in the past, everything changes... Suddenly the sadness of birthdays becomes apparent, as I sit in my empty room, sad, alone and forgotten, letting time take everything but memories... Lift the glasses! For I'm one year older, a reason... to rejoice?
