Beauty And The Beast

Lyrics: You’re not a stranger to me
I would fall in your shadow I believe
la bete
Would you die of grieving when I leave
Inspiration: “I’m not a thief nor a stranger.”
“I would live silently contented in your shadow.”
“I know I’m horrible. But I will die of grief
If you don’t return.”
