Love used to be a stranger to me
Love was so disappointing
I was waiting for a sign
I was looking for some company
So I took a walk outside
What a lucky day

I saw the devil waiting for me
He'd bullets and green paper
He'd been walking through the earth
Swinging to and fro and down in it (from" the Book of Job" 1. 6)
As I turned to walk away
That's when I saw your face

Love, there is nothing better than this
Love, think of all the chances we miss
See the people walking by
With their mobile and computer eyes
If they'd just afford the time
There is no greater gold

Love, I don't think I'll see you again
It isn't easy you say we're friends
When you opened up your heart
Just enough to make me see again
When you stopped to take my hand
It was meant this way
It was meant this way
