TRANSLATION IN ENGLISH

The heart a thousand pieces
and I'm on the road of endurance
without hope anymore
and then you came and told me me.

Wherever you go, you know
I will follow you too

I will love you for a lifetime
you are not alone my child
I am here
I will love you for a lifetime
you are not alone my child
you should know that
that I am here

Alone and with myself now
and as I was counting deep wounds
your grace gave me wings
because I heard you tell me

Wherever you go, you know
I will follow you too

I will love you forever
you are not alone my child
I am here
I will love you forever
you are not alone my child
you should know that
that I am here

I will be during the black times by your side 
With you
and in the dark time I am here
with you 

I am with you 
Both together 
I am with you 
Both together
Both together
