Lyrics

Im Sturz durch Raum und Zeit
Richtung Unendlichkeit
Fliegen Motten in das Licht
Genau wie du und ich

Wrap your fingers 'round my neck
You don't speak my dialect
But our images reflect
Drawn together by the flame
We are just the same
Embrace the wind and fall into
Another time and space

Gib' mir die Hand
Ich bau dir ein Schloss aus Sand
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann

If we belong to each other, we belong
Anyplace anywhere anytime

Im Sturz durch Zeit und Raum
Erwacht aus einem Traum
Nur ein kurzer Augenblick
Dann kehrt die Nacht zurûck
Bits and pieces from your storm
Rain upon me as they form
Melt into my skin and I feel warm
Sweep upon me like a wave
We are young and brave
Embrace the wind and float into
Another time and space

Gib' mir die Hand
Ich bau dir ein Schloss aus Sand
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann

If we belong to each other, we belong
Anyplace anywhere anytime
I'm going to any world you're coming from
Anyplace anywhere anytime

(Drawn together by the flame)
(We are just the same)
(Embrace the wind and fall)
(Into another time and space)

If we belong to each other, we belong
Anyplace anywhere anytime
I'm going to any world you're coming from
Anyplace anywhere anytime
