The heart beats on

Like a bunch of happy kids
They flap their wings
And fly fly fly
When they see the clouds in sky.

Round and round they go,
Careless about the consequences,
No matter how strong
The monsoon wind blows.

Just like small kids
Nonchalant and wild
They fly in circles
In urban cloudy sky.

Then when their wings get tired,
When their hearts are full,
They settle down and soak
In the pouring rain.
