"Polish Poem" as written by David K. Lynch and Chrysta Bell....
"I sing this poem to you...
On the other side, I see…
Shining waves flowing.
It’s far away, far away from me,
I can see it there
I can see it there
the wind blows outside and I have no breath,
I breathe again and know I’ll have to live
To forget my world is ending.
I have to live…
I hear my heart beat,
Fluttering in pain, saying something,
Tears are coming to my eyes -
I cry…I cry…
I cannot feel the warmth of the sun
I cannot hear the laughter
Choking with every thought,
I see your faces,
My hands are tied as I wish -
But no one comes,
No one comes,
Where are you?
Where are you?
What will make me want to live?
What will make me want to love?
Tell me…tell me…

I sing this poem to you…to you…
Is this mystery unfolding
As a wing floating?
Something is coming true -
The dream of an innocent child…

Something is happening -
Something is happening..."

    Lyric CorrectionI believe there is some error in the lyrics. I think it says "... I have to leave" instead of "... I have to live".
    By the way, I think it's clear that this song is about dying or realizing of being dead (actually making a peace with the fact of being dead). The movie helps a lot in making this conclusion.
