the air will never have the same smell,
the sun will never get to shine so bright again.
how they hurt my eyes, god! they hurt my eyes,
now that you’re leaving.
my past is travelling on an airplane,
who will be there the next time i need a friend,
and i close my eyes, now i close my eyes
because you’re leaving.
and the telephone is ringing in my hand,
i have to cheer you up, and you still don’t understand
why did you say goodbye, how did you say goodbye?
it’s me who did it …
i have my life right in front of me,
my past seems one minute, present seems eternity.
i want to freeze the time, so i close my eyes
but you’re still leaving.
with any problem i did lean on you.
you are now my problem and i don’t know what to do.
i see you fly away, god! they hurt my eyes
now that you’re leaving
and you still wonder how i didn’t cry.
of course i love you, but somehow i had to lie,
beause you had to go, yes! you had to go
although you need me.
because your future is so far from here
and from the distance i will help to fight your fears.
i’ll have to be strong, yes! i will be strong
because you need me.
and the telephone is ringing in my hand
i have to cheer you up, and i don’t know if i can.
if you could see my eyes, if you could see my eyes…
