Alphaville – The Elevator lyrics

(Lyrics: Gold / Music: Gold-Lloyd-Mertens)

Time is fleeting
You can't stop time
Hearts are beating
Cause there ain't no time
Dial that number
Stories fly
See their faces,
Empty places
Uh, elevator
Time goes by
Uh, generator
Love flies by good-bye, good-bye
Time is hurting
But it ain't a crime
Someone's bleeding
All the time
Too much tension
In a second
Just repeat it
Cause I need it
Uh, elevator
Uh, generator
Turning on
Turning elevator on
