No life so short it canґt turn around
You canґt spend your life living underground
Far from above you donґt hear a sound

And Iґm out here - waiting
I donґt understand what you want me to be
Itґs the dark youґre hating
Itґs not who I am, but I know that itґs all that you see

No life so short that it never learns
No flame so small that it never burns
No page so sure that it never turns

And Iґm out here - waiting
I donґt understand what you want me to be
Itґs the dark youґre hating
Itґs not who I am, but I know that itґs all that you see

Can you live your life in a day?
Putting every moment in play?
Never hear a word that they say as the wheels go around
Tell me if you win would it show?
In a thousand years who would know?
As a million lifes come and go on the same piece of ground

Iґve been waiting
I donґt understand what you want me to be
Itґs the dark youґre hating
Itґs not who I m, but it is what you see

Tell me would you really want to
See me leave this night without you?
Donґt you ever look about you?
Wandering where we might be?
New York is so far away now
Tokio, Berlin and Moscow
Only dreams from here but somehow
One day that world we will see

I donґt understand ( 8x )

I swear on tomorrow if you take this chance
Our lifes are this moment, the music, the dance
And here in this labyrinth of lost mysteries
I close my eyes on this night
And youґre all that I see
Youґre all that I see
