This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Deadmen Letters
As long as my heart keeps on beating... I'll keep on running So my feelings would reach you...

As long as my heart keeps on beating… I’ll keep on running
So my feelings would reach you…

Heart’s beating fast, skpping beats
Warm feelings that I thought lost
Reappearing once more, reviving my hopeful self
But… Just like light cannot go without darkness…
Hurtful feelings that I thought lost
Reappearing once more, killing my hopeful self

Oh how it’d be great if everything could make me reach my goal
Reach it without any obstacles and suffering
But this is reality, things cannot go that well
Thus, I’ve found myself getting my legs and arms constantly cut off
Things preventing me from reaching my destination
Things preventing me from reaching you…

Yet… I keep on going, I keep on running
Running towards the finish line, towards you
Everytime I’d lose a limb or two, I’d find a way to recover it
And keep on pushing… So that I can make my feelings reach you
No matter how many times I’d fall down, I’d get back up and run forward

Yet… Everytime I get closer to you… You’d get further and further away
Times where I thought I could finally stop and hold you in my arms
You’d get further and further away, out of my arms’ reach
Not wanting to give you up, I’d keep on running and running
Constantly falling down and getting back up…

With so many things getting in my way
With so many things hurting me
With so many things preventing me from reaching you
This is an unbalanced and one-sided race…
How long do I have to run before I can reach you?
How much more do I have to fall before I hold you?

These legs and arms that have been constantly torn apart and rebuilt
Have yet to amount to the same pain that my heart have beared and is bearing
A pain that is so unbearable… A pain that can only be suppressed
By my strong feelings for you…
No matter how many things have gotten in my way, I have yet to give up
As long as my heart keeps on beating… I’ll keep on running
So my feelings would reach you…
