Just as fast as you came
Just as fast the sun set
You push me away, you push me down
Down, down, down, where my dreams lay
And just as quick as you left
Just as quick as you left my heart undressed
And I fell down, down, down, down
You took my wish back to the well

And I remember all the words that you said
That love is just a spark that starts in your heart
And ends in your head

Darling calm down, calm down
You lose yourself in the clouds
Slow down, slow down
Your world's spinning around
Play your right team, hard stay, restless running wild
Just a lonely, just a lonely lonely child

Just as dark as the night
Just as dark as the night when
I lost my mind, I lost control
Down, down, down
You let me sell my love for my soul
And I remember all the words that you wrote
That love is just the sound that plays in your heart
And gets caught in your throat

Darling calm down, calm down
You lose yourself in the clouds
Slow down, slow down
Your world's spinning around,
Play your right team, hard stay, restless running wild
Just a lonely, just a lonely lonely child

And I remember all the words that you said
That love is just a spark that starts in your heart
And ends in your head

Darling calm down, calm down
You lose yourself in the clouds
Slow down, slow down
Your world's spinning around
Play your right team, hard stay, restless running wild
Just a lonely, just a lonely
Just a lonely, just a lonely lonely child

Cha-cha-cha!
