Strawberry mousse

Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly with his song

Telling my whole life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

…open your heart and “ lost in love” and made this for “the one that you love“, and watch him as he gone “crazy for you“, one more sip and “can’t help falling in love“, its light and flirty, pretty in pink , deep in love and  filled with passion making “wonderful tonight“.

Enjoy with your loved ones.
