The part of verse 2 that Mina and Sana sing has very sweet lyrics: “Your loving breath, your soft voice, enters my heart and shines on me. This is how I feel. I want to hold you softly in my arms.” These lyrics tell about the little things that people feel while in love.
The chorus of the song is also very beautiful with a faster music beat. The lyrics in the chorus tell about the desire to make loved ones happy.
