Ooooh
Girl don't lie
I know that Corsican rosй stays on your mind

Ohhh
What went wrong
We used to turn up Serge Gainsbourg and sing along

I had a nice vacation
On to the next location
Any port in a storm to keep me warm

I shoulda told you you're the only one for me
How could I ever be so blind
I should have never let you find another guy
There'll never be another time for you and me
I should've held on to you tight
Now we'll forever be ships passing in the night

In the night
In the night
We'll forever be ships passing

Oooh
Mon amour
I stood and stared back at you as I closed the door
Oohhh it broke my heart
To see that photo of you in each others arms

I had a nice vacation
On to the next location
Any port in a storm to keep me warm

I shoulda told you you're the only one for me
How could I ever be so blind
I should have never let you find another guy
There'll never be another time for you and me
I should've held on to you tight
Now we'll forever be ships passing in the night

In the night
In the night
We'll forever be ships passing

If I could turn back the hands of time
I'd never leave your love behind
Maybe I'll meet you in the next life
And you'll be mine

I shoulda told you you're the only one for me
How could I ever be so blind
I should have never let you find another guy
There'll never be another time for you and me
I should've held on to you tight
Now we'll forever be ships passing in the night

In the night
In the night
We'll forever be ships passing
