Trying to vent the feelings inside my head is impossible for me to do tonight
So I just keep you near caress you 'til my flight is here
But when I tried to keep you awake you fell asleep at the airport of Nice

I take it as an easy way of leaving you
So I won't have to say the dreadful goodbyes
But when I reach the gate I feel a sudden change of heart
So I'll pass the flight and buy us a bottle of wine
I'll buy myself some more time

Don't stay awake
I guess there will be some delay
I'll be at least two days too late
Now I know that France is too far away

Though the time we shared was better than anything
We can't ignore the fact it's all we'll ever have
So I kiss you like I've never kissed you before
And It's time for us to finally realise that we must move on with our lives

Don't stay awake I guess there will be some delay...

It's something that you said
It's something that you did
That's still a vital part of me today
It's definitely something that you said
It's something that you did
That's still a vital part of me today

It was years ago but I still can't help wondering
What could have been in case I would have stayed
You're still far away but I will never forget the day
When I tried to keep you awake and you fell asleep at the airport of Nice
