Brazzaville – Hong Kong Cafe (It Only Hurts) lyrics

Last night I had a dream
That you were done with me
The sparkle in your eyes
Had all but gone
You told me 'bout a guy
That you chanced to meet on a crowded street
Who made you feel alive
Made you feel whole

It only hurts when you're far from me
It only hurts when you're gone
I'm such a sub-standard human being
I'd never make it alone

I want to let you know
That you're my everything
If life is like the night
Then you're my dawn
My morning in July
My favorite melody on an empty beach
My winter by the fire
My midnight sun
