The Important Thing Is the Rose

You who walk in the wind
Alone in the too-big city
With the calm cockroach
of passing
You who she let go of
To run towards other moons
To run from other destinies
The important thing...

The important thing
Is the rose
The important thing
Is the rose
The important thing
Is the rose
Believe me...

You who look for a little money
To get you through the week
In the town, you walk
Your swinging
stuntman, sun going to sleep,
You pass in front of banks,
If you are nothing but an acrobat,

The important thing
Is the rose
The important thing
Is the rose
The important thing
Is the rose
Believe me...

You, little one, who your parents
left alone on earth
Little bird without light
Without spring
In your jacket of white cloth
It's cold like in Bohemia
You have a heart like in Lent
And however...

The important thing
Is the rose
The important thing
Is the rose
The important thing
Is the rose
Believe me...

You for whom, giving giving,
I sang these few lines
As if to give you a sign
in passing
Say in your turn now
That life has no importance
Except for a flower that dances
on top of time...

The important thing
Is the rose
The important thing
Is the rose
The important thing
Is the rose
Believe me...

The important thing
Is the rose
The important thing
Is the rose
The important thing
Is the rose
Believe me...

This is a beautiful song. I have no idea why all of the words in the original lyrics are capitalized. Can anyone explain that to me or is it just a thing?
