Spare us your mercy, we are in love
Forget the cost of travelling, I’m here
With you, everything is worth it
Just to see your face and with you
The jar might be empty, but we’ll manage
Like flighty birds, we are free to groove
Tough life being separated
One day we will be together
The gift of love forever and ever
We are bound together, that is a sign
Sign that we have to be patient
Some sacrifices are needed
We will make the most of this day
With you the whole world is brilliant*
