Out of this doom
Out of this gloom
Out of love something will bloom

You held me close like this …
Then you turned and walked away
With nothing left to say

In the fields we run around
Watching leaves fall to the ground
Blind with happiness
On a … blood red autumn’s day
Killing time away

What I need you to know now
Nothing is black and white today

What you see is what you get
Promise me you won’t forget
Filled with emptiness
Then you drift in cyberspace
And look the other way

Oh my God, Angel Face
Come to me in all your grace
Leave me one more kiss …
How long, must I have to wait ?
Fleeting is love, you say

What I need you to know now
Nothing is black and white today
Like a star that’s falling down
And everything just turns to gray

What I need you to know now
I am not afraid today
Like a star that’s falling down
But everything will be O.K.
