If you can't make out the lyrics ( and yes, they're in English), have a look below:

Title: WITHOUT YOU

No,I can't forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way the story goes.......
You always smile but in your eyes your sorrow shows
Yes, it shows....
No, I can't forget tomorrow
When I think of all my sorrow
When I had you there but then I let you go
And now it's only fair that I should let you know
What you should know...
I can't live if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give any more
I can't live if living is without you
I can't give, I can't give any more

No, I can't forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way the story goes
You always smile but in your eyes your sorrow shows
Yes, it shows I can't live if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore
I can't live if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore
