When the sun goes down
I open up my window for hours and I watch

Every passing stranger
Every early shadow, I wonder if it's you

Always I'm dreaming, and recklessly scheming
How to get you back in my life

I want you now
And I'm prepared to take chances
I've told you how
I won't take no for an answer

Every empty evening
The sailors sit downstairs, drinking 'til they fight

Shout and raucous laughter
Sounds of breaking glass shatter through the night

The men from the circus are juggling with knives
The acrobats fall just like you

I want you now
And I'm prepared to take chances
I've told you how
I won't take no for an answer
I won't take no for an answer

Now you're miles away
'Cross the sea, out of reach, unheard
I've cried to you for help
But the wind blows away all my words

You sat there once beside me
Where the actors play, you kissed me every night

When you left you promised
You'd soon be back to stay, and it would be alright

Now I'm abandoned, my letters unanswered
Got to get you back in my life

I want you now (I want you now)
And I'm prepared to take chances
I've told you how (I've told you how)
I won't take no for an answer

I want you now (I want you now)
And I'm prepared to take chances
I've told you how (I've told you how)
I won't take no for an answer
