spoken (formal 'you')
At the end of the line, is your voice
And there are words I will not say.
All these words that scare us when they don't make us laugh,
That are found is so many movies, songs or books.
I would want to tell them to you
And I would want to live them.
I will not,
I want to, I cannot.
I'm dying of loneliness, and I know where you live.
I'll be there, wait for me, we'll soon get to know each other.
Take your time, for you I'll have plenty.
I would like to get there, I'm staying here, I hate myself.
I will not get there,
I want to, I cannot.
I should speak to you,
I should make it,
or I should just get some sleep.
 
('you' becomes familiar, to stress intimacy)
I fear you won't hear me.
I fear you will turn out a coward.
I fear to come across as indiscreet.
I can not tell you (formal 'you') that, maybe... I am in love with you (familiar 'you') ...
 
Sung: ('you' is familiar now)
But if you think one day you love me
Don't go thinking your story will deter me
And run, run out of breath
Come and find me.
If you think you love me one day
And if that day you are having a hard time
Finding where all these paths lead you,
Come and find me.
If you feel nauseous from this life,
If you have become numb from this life,
Think of me,
Think of me.
 
But if you think one day you love me
Do not consider it a problem
And run, run out of breath
Come and find me.
If you think one day you love me ,
don't wait a day, not a week
As you never know where life will take you,
Come and find me.
If you feel disgusted from this life,
If you have become numb from this life,
Think of me,
Think of me.
 
But if you...
 
Thanks!
