I'm gonna put on my high heeled boots I'm gonna paint my nails and colour my roots I don't care what you say you won't stand in my way I'm a woman, I'll dress up today I'm gonna pick up the phone call in sick I'm gonna pack my bags, put on some lipstick I'm gonna book me a flight Hey, I know it ain't right I've got duties and money is tight But when they're piling up like a mountain the things you have to do and you are ready to burst like a fountain into tears 'cause it's true that the place you are living the jobs that you do have nothing to do with you I'm gonna go to a city or town and the place gotta vibrate 'cause I ain't lying down Full of people and cars Full of glitter and stars Full of music and laughters and bars 'Cause when they're piling up like a mountain the things you have to do and you are ready to burst like a fountain into tears 'cause it's true that the place you are living the jobs that you do have nothing to do with you You gotta steal those moments those precious little moments to yourself It ain't crime to steal those moments those precious little moments to yourself and when they're piling up like a mountain the things you have to do and you are ready to burst like a fountain into tears 'cause it's true that the place you are living the jobs that you do have nothing to do with you When I return it will be with a smile 'cause I will bring back some treasures to last me a while It's the memories you know from the places I go Keep on charging 'till the next time I'm low Keep on charging 'till the next time I'm low

He closed his eyes above the map decided where to go He let his finger point the way but what he didn't know is that there is no better place than here to face your fears It is here where it all happened It is here they know your tears It will go away if I fly away, oh you will see Let it go away as I fly away, leave it behind me His plane would take him down to Spain away from all the fog and rain He would return a rested man and with a proper olive tan But there is no better place than here to face your fears It is here where it all happened It is here they know your tears It will go away if I fly away, oh you will see Let it go away as I fly away, leave it behind me Everyone will loose someone they love Your brother lost his girlfriend The butcher lost his wife The neighbour lost his dog The doctor lost a child You lost your best friend from the pain you can't hide It won't go away if you fly away, oh you will see It won't go away as you fly away, oh you will see So when the boy returned from Spain his heart was still in pain He saw his brother for a chat and on the couch all night they sat 'cause there is no better place than here to face your fears It is here where it all happened It is here they know your tears It won't go away if you fly away, oh you will see It won't go away as you fly away, oh you will see It won't go away if you fly away, oh you will see It won't go away as you fly away, oh you will see It won't go away as you fly away, oh you will see

I woke up this morning and said to myself that this can't go on anymore I can't keep on waiting or keep hesitating I'll open that red painted door Let the wild burning flame Make me cry as I'm calling out your name as I'm calling out your name The reason I woke up with new plans in mind was a dream that I had once before It said you can't keep on waiting or keep hesitating just open that red painted door Let the wild burning flame Make me cry as I'm calling out your name as I'm calling out your name as I'm calling out your name as I'm calling out your name and with those tears running down my blushing face I will yearn for your sweet embrace and with your arms wrapped around me I will lie watch eternity forever passing by Let the wild burning flame Make me cry as I'm calling out your name as I'm calling out your name and with those tears running down my blushing face I will yearn for your sweet embrace and with your arms wrapped around me I will lie watch eternity forever passing by Let the wild burning flame Make me cry as I'm calling out your name as I'm calling out your name as I'm calling out your name as I'm calling out your name

I saw you look the other way with your eyes so dark and grey at a blonde across the room and assets you had really zoomed I knew right then it's time for action to find a way to make you see that I have qualities that any man would die for You'll belong to me I saw you walk up to the bar as I admired from afar I saw the shoulders of a fighter but a spirit of a writer I knew right then it's time for action to find a way to make you see that I have qualities that any man would die for You'll belong to me I want to hold your hand and ask you out for a walk I want to kiss your lips, get to know you as we talk and if we're lucky by the time it's late you've agreed to a proper date then I will be the happiest girl in the world I knew I had to hurry up another sip out of my cup I made my way through the crowd with the music ringing loud and when I stood right next to you and you looked my way I didn't have the slightest clue what to do so I simply had to say I want to hold your hand and ask you out for a walk I want to kiss your lips, get to know you as we talk and if we're lucky by the time it's late you've agreed to a proper date then I will be the happiest girl in the world To my surprise you gave me a yes You said I'm in the mood tonight to make my life a mess You gave me a nod and somewhat odd as we walked across the floor heading for the door You said, I want to hold your hand and take you out for a walk I want to kiss your lips, get to know you as we talk and if we're lucky by the time it's late I've agreed to a proper date then I will be the luckiest guy under the sky then I will be the luckiest guy under the sky

She had good times 'til he came and stole her heart She was the freest of them all 'til he came and stole her heart I'll always remember every song they played that night how the people were laughing and dancing how the stars were shining bright and the dress she wore that night was the fairest of them all and her hair was smooth as silk and the colour of the fall oh time will never erase her smile though she's gone for a while The friends who ones knew her say the sweetest thing is gone They sat that the sun has fallen down but still we have to carry on I'll always remember how he came and took her hand as he offered her flowers and wine as they walked off in the sand and the dress she wore that night was the fairest of them all and her hair was smooth as silk and the colour of the fall oh time will never erase her smile though she's gone for a while Though they say she's been spotted in town near the street she used to stay They say she looks withered and pale and her eyes have turned to grey I say no, that ain't her no, it can't be her Tell me, tell me, tell me, please, that isn't you that simply ain't you 'Cause the dress you wore that night was the fairest of them all and your hair was smooth as silk and the colour of the fall oh time will never erase your smile Though you're gone for a while Though you're gone for a while Though you're gone for a while Though you're gone for a while

Come with me, let me take your hand Follow me to the land The land where pine trees and birches grow where the seagulls rest in the sand Hold me tight as we cross the sea Keep me warm in the night The night that leads us to northern coasts and the stars to guide us with light When the morning comes with breeze and sun when the clouds are flying high we'll be close enough to see the fjeld and you'll wipe my tearful eye Talk to me, let us stay awake Let me tell you a tale a tale of children that laugh and play as the night stays bright as the day Let us sing, sing a lullaby the rhythm helps us to row to row this boat with a steady beat to the port where home will us meet When the morning comes with breeze and sun when the clouds are flying high we'll be close enough to see the fjeld and you'll wipe my tearful eye and let us pray just a silent pray the pray that vikings would say to keep the thunder and storm away as they passed the danish bay When the morning comes with breeze and sun when the clouds are flying high we'll be close enough to see the fjeld and you'll wipe my tearful eye When the morning comes with breeze and sun when the clouds are flying high we'll be close enough to see the fjeld and you'll wipe my tearful eye and you'll wipe my tearful eye
