• We made a promise,
    to meet in the night,
    Under the cherry tree,
    is the place.

    We dreamed of this moment all of our lives,
    to be free from the bonds,
    that tore us apart,
    Under the cherry tree we would run away.

    I was promised to another man,
    but I didn't love him,
    so in the night,
    we will disappear.

    That faithful night came,
    I waited for you,
    My only company was quiet,
    The cherry tree was there.

    Dawn came and they found me,
    I was hanging from the cherry tree,
    I refuse to marry that man,
    I was alone, but away.
