While Your Lips are Still Red Lyrics

Sweet little words made for silence
Not talk
Young heart for love
Not heartache
Dark hair for catching the wind
Not to veil the sight of a cold world

Kiss while your lips are still red
While he`s still silent
Rest while bosom is still untouched,...

    It is about young/first love.

    "Boussom untouched and un vailed" I take that as your not married so follow your heart.
    "Hold another hand while the hands still without a tool"
    I take that as make sure on who you truly love before you make up your mind.

    I'm only speaking my visions

    I'm fairly sure that this has something to do with the song Gondola no Uta, featured in the movie Ikiru, by Akira Kurosawa.

    I think it's about how you should love and life life to the fullest "kiss while your lips are still red" love before you are gone "First day of love never comes back" everything is precious "A passionate hour`s never a wasted one" don't waste the time you have with another person :) personally I think every line has it's own little meaning :D

    I think this is saying that the world takes things that are supposed to be kind, and uses them to hurt people. Young hearts are made for love, not for heartache. So we should remember that and take advantage of the innocent parts of life, because it doesn't last forever.
