Lyrics of I Am The One

Я твоё солнце, твоя луна, Твоя вселенная. Из миллионов ты не думай Выбери меня Волосы - ветер, кожа – мурашки. Ты не заметишь, но мне не страшно. И босиком по тёплому снегу... Chorus: Я - ливень в пустыне. Я - самая сильная, Самая смелая мечта твоя. Я словно комета сиять в космосе где-то Там, где хорошо моим мечтам... Эту планету поменяем Своей любовью мы. Пусть мои победы называют Именем твоим. Я повзрослею, но не сегодня, И не жалею, нет ни о чем я. Музыка лечит, и я свободна. Chorus: Я - ливень в пустыне. Я - самая сильная, Самая смелая мечта твоя. Я словно комета сиять в космосе где-то Там, где хорошо моим мечтам... Я словно комета сиять в космосе где-то Там, где хорошо моим мечтам...
I am your sunshine, I am moonlight, I am the universe. I am the one you have to choose from, 
From the millions... 

 So let your wind blow
 And rustle in my hair. 
I'm not afraid though, 
I've never been there.
 Open your heart and 
Let the fire in. Chorus
 Why I don't know how to fly, I wanna cross the sky. I know the world is mine, So I will try... Why I don't know how to fly, Oh you just let me shine. The stage is the place I feel alive... 
I am the sunshine, I am moonlight, I am your galaxy ... All that I believe is that now is my time, Love is all I see... Listen to you heart, Don't be afraid, no... Give me your hand and Let's dance on the snow. We are forever, 
I'll never let you go... Chorus Why I don't know how to fly, I wanna cross the sky. I know the world is mine, So I will try... Why I don't know how to fly, Oh you just let me shine. The stage is the place I feel alive...
