07 – MAGICAL NIGHT: “If we can be together for one night, then we can love forever.”
08 – STARFISH: The story of a man forced to leave his young lover in order to fight in the war.
09 – THE BLACK SUN: “The sun is so black, black like our life. Life is like a homeless dog at night. Don’t trust or believe, or else you’ll be crushed and part with your hopes and dreams. The black sun is still the king of the dark shadows, of memories. I want to forget and wish away the sadness. The sun is black, black like the night. Why do I still see the sun as black as ink?”
10 – DAWN: “Tomorrow you leave to fight the war. This is the last night we have together, so let’s just enjoy it.”

15 – JEALOUSY: A woman is jealous that her soldier husband is away so often. “The life of a man has hundred of ways, but the fate 9of a girl has only one. When you’re away, you better not cheat, you hear me? Let’s make love for a long time. 15 days of leave go by so fast, leaving sadness behind.”
16 – A GIRL’s DESTINY: Feeling jealous that her soldier boyfriend has not come back to see her, she claims that his love fir the country is greater than his love for her.
17 – RIDDLES: A love song in riddle form. “Who is it that knows how many stalks of rice there are? How many curves a river has? How many clouds are in the sky? Who is the one who can sweep all leaves from the forest floor? The one who knows these answers is the one I will be with.”
