The plane took off and my love went with it.
The chilly wind whipped my both cheeks hard.
And the man next to me said ‘Everything is gonna be alright’.
I said ‘Nothing is gonna be alright, but thank you anyway’.

I waved my hands and I shouted to you:

Tonight tonight tonight tonight
I wanna be with you Tonight tonight tonight tonight
I wanna be with you tonight

We’re gonna trip the light

Remember we’re the same
We hold the burning rhythm in our hearts
We hold the flame

Baby, I’m coming Home

I’ll follow you into the park,
through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you
