lyrics

Hello stranger, tell me where you’ve been;
I’ve not been sleeping and my roof is caving in.
I’m in danger of another day
Of ruing and regretting I ever let you get away.

If you fly across the ocean, I would dry up all the sea;
If you fall in love with Venice, I’ll buy all of Italy.
I can’t hold you back forever, but I can try to make you see,
If you disappear completely, I won’t let you disappear from me.

Hello stranger, let’s go back in time,
When London and Berlin were on our mind,
Turn a wild imagination into a photo on the shelf,
The more I know you like a stranger, the less I seem to know myself.

If you fly across the ocean, I would dry up all the sea;
If Berlin captures your heart, I’ll declare war with Germany.
I can’t hold you back forever, but I can try to make you see,
If you disappear completely, I won’t let you disappear from me.

The bullet’s in the air,
But anywhere you run, I’ll just chase you there;
So why not stay right here?
Cos I won’t let you disappear.

If you fly across the ocean, I would dry up all the sea;
If you fall in love with Venice, I’ll buy all of Italy.
I can’t hold you back forever, but I can try to make you see,
If you disappear completely, I won’t let you disappear from me.
