"I wonder how long we can get away
Side by side, I'm stuck to my phony pride
Always craving for something missing

Never get it, I always try
Never get it, I'm always trying

Never really been down with someone
Everyone of us would wish to be.
Someday, not too far away, we'll be facing.

We never share what we hide, after all
We wanna share what we hide, after all

See you passing by everyday, yeah
We're living up time in the night
Everyone of us, deep inside wishes...

We would share what we hide, after all."

um noch ein Wunder zu sehen.
und am nächsten Wunder ziehn' sie dich vorbei.
Der, der dich am Arm hält, zählt bis Drei

 und es geht vorbei, es geht vorbei."
