望む <Desire>

僕は

何が望めてるの

何ができるの

欲しいのは

金じゃない

物じゃない

名声もない

答えは

生きて続かなきゃ、

分からないだろう

生きてく

答えを探すしかない

いつか

答えが見つけられるだろう

Do we need memories and shared experiences to say that the love is real?

 

Sweeney Todd – Horror or bloody movies are generally not my type. But I continue to like movies directed by Tim Burton. The setting in London is nicely created, and Johnny Depp remains a great actor.
