Lyrics:

 

La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la

W
hen will I know if I'd arrived in time to know you

You'd have taken the time to show me
I wouldn't be lonely
Where will I go, who will I have to lie beside me
Ease this emptiness inside of me, I'm so lonely

1. Tried so hard each time, each time I just can't make it
Feelin' fast vibrations and I just can't take it
Living from day to day, chasing a dream
I'm, I'm leavin
'

La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la

1. (repete)

La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
I'm, I'm leavin
'
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
