I've been watching you a while
Since you walked into my life
Monday morning, when first I heard you speak to me
I was too shy to let you know
Much too scared to let my feelings show
But you shielded me, and that was the beginning

Now at last we can talk
In another way
And though I try
"I love you" is just so hard to say
If I only could be strong
And say the words I feel

My beating heart begins to race
When I turn to see your face
I remember that sweet dream
Which you told to me
I wanted just to be with you
So we could make the dream come true
And you smiled at me
And that was the beginning

Now at last we can talk
In another way
And though I try
"I love you" is just so hard to say
If I only could be strong
And say the words I feel

Tell me what you're thinking of
Tell me if you love me now
I had so much I longed to ask you
But now the chance has gone
While your picture fades each day
In my heart, the memory stays
Glowing bright, you're always smiling
And I will hold you close

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. I had no idea it was by Joanne Hogg. I was thinking a japanese woman sang it since it was in the Xenosaga OST.

    But anyway, Kokoro means Spirit. Which doesn't really relate to the song to me.

    I think its about a woman who's fallen in love with a man, but she's unable to tell him.
    "and though I try/"I love you" is just so hard to say/If I only could be strong/and say the words I feel"

    They're aware of their connection, but I think both of them are holding back
    "now at last we can talk/in another way"

    In the end though, she misses out and she never tells him. I guess he leaves and she regrets not being able to tell him that she loves him, but in the end she'll always remember him with memories of him.
