Hello my friend.
It's good to know you're looking after me.
On this day I'll plummet to the sea.
In my next life will you keep me warm?
Keep me warm.
Listen when I tell you, sun,
the reasons are so clear.
The irony is that no one is here.
When you're by my side,
I've got all my friends.
But veracity gives me a tender glimpse
and then I'm left with nothing.
Goodbye my friend.
I'm glad I got to share this world with you.
Our affinity is now through.
In your next life can I keep you warm?
The sun sets but once a day.

    Song MeaningThe sun is the main character's only "friend". He is dying alone; whether by his own hand or some other circumstance. The sun is the only thing he can share this moment with.

    The last five lines are sung by the sun, saying goodbye to the speaker. "Our affinity (mutual liking) is now through", because the protagonist is now dead. The sun is now speaking to him (someone who cannot answer his question), just as he had spoken to the sun.
