“Take My Breath Away”
Watching every motion In my foolish lover’s game
Watching in slow motion As you turn around and say
Never hesitating To become the fated ones
Turning and returning To some secret place to find
As you turn to me and say My love
In time you slipped away
When the mirror crashed I called you
And turned to hear you say
If only for today
I am unafraidTake my breath away …. x2Watching every motion In this foolish lover’s game
Haunted by the notion Somewhere there’s a love in flamesTurning and returning To some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion As you turn my way and say
Take my breath away ….
