No life's so short it can't turn around.
You can't spend your life living underground.
For from above you don't hear a sound,

And I'm out here
Waiting.
I don't understand what you want me to be.

It's the dark you're hating.
It's not who I am
But I know that it's all that you see.

No life's so short that it never learns.
No flame so small that it never burns.
No page so sure that it never turns.

And I'm out here
Waiting.
I don't understand what you want me to be.

It's the dark you're hating.
It's not who I am
But I know that it's all that you see.

Can you live your life in a day?
Putting every moment in play?
Never hear a word that they say
As the wheels go around.

Tell me if you win would it show?
In a thousand years who would know?
As a million lives come and go
On this same piece of ground.

I've been (Can you live your life in a day?)
waiting. (Putting every moment in play?)
I don't understand what you want me to be.(Never hear a word that they say as the wheels)
It's the dark you're (go around. Tell me if you win would it show?)
hating. (In a thousand years who would know?)
It's not who I am (As a million lives)
But I know that it's all that you see.(come and go on this same piece of ground.)

(Repeat previous paragraph, add this chorus simultaneously)
Tell me would you really want to
See me leave this night wihtout you?
Would you ever look about you
Wondering where we might be?
New York is so far away now,
Tokyo, Berlin and Moscow.
Only dreams from here but somehow
One day that world we will see.

(Repeat previous paragraphs, add this chorus simultaneously)
I don't understand.
I don't understand.
I don't understand.
I don't understand.
I don't understand.
I don't understand.
I don't understand.
I don't understand what I see.

I swear on tomorrow
If you take this chance,
Our lives are this moment,
The music, the dance.
And here in this labyrinth
Of lost mysteries,
I close my eyes on this night
And you're all that I see.

You're all that I see...
