Che serata magica, magica. Che città magica, che città magica, che serata.

If you twist and turn away
If you tear yourself in two again
If I could, yes I would
If I could, I would let it go
Surrender, dislocate

If I could throw this lifeless
Lifeline to the wind
Leave this heart of clay
See you walk, walk away
Into the night
And through the rain
Into the half-light
And through the rain

To let it go
So not fade away
To let it go
So not fade away
Wide awake
Wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping
Oh no

If you should ask, then maybe
They'd tell me what I would say
True colours fly in blue and black
Blue silken sky and like a burning flag
Colours crash, collide in blood shot eyes

If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would let it go

This desperation
Separation
Isolation
Condemnation
Revelation
In temptation
Isolation
Revelation
In temptation

Let it go
So not fade away
To let it go
So not fade, fade, fade away
Fade away

Wide awake
Wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping

I know, I know.

You say you want a diamond on a ring of gold
You say you want your story to remain untold
All the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you
All we need is you
All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you

Close enough
To love we're still close enough
Wide awake
Wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping
We sleep
