Julie Delpy – An Ocean Apart lyrics

Now we are together
Sitting outside in the sunshine
But soon we'll be apart
And soon it'll be night at noon
Now things are fine
The clouds are far away up in the sky
But soon I'll be on a plane
And soon you'll feel the cold rain

You promised to stay in touch when we're apart
You promised before I left that you'll always love me
Time goes by and people cry and everything goes too fast

Now we have each other
Enjoying each moment with one another
But soon I'll be miles away
And soon the phone will be our only way
Now I'm in your arms
Feeling pure love and warm
But soon I'll be alone
And soon your voice will change of tone

You promised we'll never break up over the telephone
You said our love was stronger than an ocean apart
Time goes by and people lie and everything goes too fast

Let's not fool ourselves in vain
This far away trip will give us pain
We'll have to be so strong
To keep our love from going wrong
Distance will make us cold
Even put our love on hold
But soon we'll meet again
And soon it'll be bright at noon again

You promised not to loose faith in our love when I'm away
You promised so much to me but now you've left me
We go by and then we lie and all this time we wasted
Time goes by and people lie and everything goes too fast.

Time went by and then we died and everything went too fast
Everything went too fast
Everything went too fast
Everything went too fast
