(de Ness/Atkinson)
Verse 1
I gave you my heart I gave you my soul.
Well, You took my body
and then took control.
I told you I love you.
You said, “Live and let live”
This game t you’re playing
turns me into a sieve.
Oh, We laughed and we cried
At how they treated you so bad
And we said must to set you free
Well now you’ve got your sweet wings,
You’re doing it all to me.
Now it’s me who longs to be free.

Verse 2 C’est une chanson qui nous resemble
Toi qui m’aimais et je t’aimais
Der vivions tous les deux, ensemble
Toi qui m’aimais, moi qui t’aimais
Mais la vie sépare ceux qui s’aiment
Tout doucement, sans faire du bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable
Les pas des amants désunis

Oh, We laughed and we cried at how they
treated you so bad
You said I was the best you’d ever had
I don’t miss you at all, my darling
Until those leaves start to fall etc.

Les pas des amants désunis
Les pas des amants désunis
