(Verse)
You saw the carnival in Rio,
You saw them dancing in the sun,
But listen to your corazón,
Can you believe you'’re always on your own?

You’'re like a song without a singer,
You'’re like a bird without a song,
You’'re all alone, all alone,
And you'’re walking down alone against the road.

(Chorus)
Oh, you tricksters and hipsters and prophets in the sky,
Can you imagine a love like that?
A love like that, a love like that
A love like that, a love like…

(Verse)
This love is older than your father,
This love is younger than your son.
You feel it in your corazón,
And it will be here when everything is gone.

And as the night turns into morning
When the fire burns to cold
She whispers in your corazón
Now you know, now you know, now you know.

(Chorus)
Oh, you tricksters and hipsters and prophets in the sky,
Can you imagine a love like that?
A love like that, a love like that
A love like that, a love like…

(Bridge)
Oh, you’'re lost in the crowd,
But I know that I’'ll find you, a song doesn'’t lie.
Hundreds of yards of some ancient street
Between the sad in the night.
I know that heaven

(Verse)
And with the summer comes the madness
Hold your faces in the night
We light our fires all alone
And build a temple to save us from the dawn.

You can’'t have everybody love you,
You can’'t have sunshine every day,
You see a dancer there alone
Then you know, then you know, then you know.

(Chorus)
Oh, you tricksters and hipsters and prophets in the sky,
Can you imagine a love like that?
A love like that, a love like that
A love like that, a love like
