At first I thought we had control, the day was crisp the night had soul...the moon was new, we caught his grin 'cos something awesome was about t begin. Little lady have we met before in another crazy life on a faraway shore...you were rosewood, you would shine like a star...when I was the minstrel and you were my guitar. And they didn't really know me well and some said maybe i's the boyfriend from hell...they didn't know me, no they didn't know me and I’m hounded about you...for you.. 'cos I want you...I want you...I want you!
Little lady if the sun grows mean, if the wind gets out of breathing, if the moon's never seen … I’ll still be granite, I’ll still be a rock … shattered by frost, unaware of the clock. Little lady let me sing you my song and if the night turns savage and the shadows are long...I’ll be a tribesman, an alien ray... in love with the girl with the eyes of grey. And they didn't really know me well and some said maybe i’s the boyfriend from hell…they didn’t know me, no they didn’t know me and I'm hounded....about you...for you, 'cos I want you...I want you...I want you!
Now as time goes by we see the dragons in the sky and the stories that die...so young. And I want you so much that it burns like a tongue, ‘cos we’re absolute beginners...so restless, so young. One sure thing...you're gonna' dance and I’m gonna' sing!
