This is a translation of the lyrics of “Euphoria”:

You are the sunlight that rose again in my life

A reincarnation of my childhood dreams

I don’t know what this emotion is

If this place is also inside a dream


This dream is a blue mirage in the desert

A priori deep inside of me

I’m so happy, I can’t breathe

My surroundings are getting more and more transparent


I hear the far-away ocean

Across the dream, over the horizon

I’m going to the place that’s getting clearer

Take my hands now

You are the cause of my euphoria


Euphoria, take my hands now

You are the cause of my euphoria

Euphoria, close the door now when I’m with you in Utopia


Were you wandering around, looking for an erased dream too?

It’s different from the typical definition of destiny

Your pained eyes are looking at the same place as me

Won’t you please stay in dreams?
