Lyrics

Hey to you my darling
Have you looked into a mirror lately
’Cause I’ve been seeing things
You’ve grown up so much
I can’t see the end of you
You’re head in the clouds and your toes dug in the sand

I want to steal this
From you, my beggar princess
And yes, it’s just a moment
Of truth with you and me in it

Hey to you my darling
I’ve woken up to a morning sun
That draws a halo ’round your head
Innocence I’ve mocked
I’ve laughed in scorn
But now a look at you is like a slap in my old face

I want to steal this
From you, my beggar princess
And yes, it’s just a moment
Of truth with you and me in it

So why should we die?
So why should we die?
We’re special, you and I

We got this far
To fall apart
Oh, but no

Hey to you my darling
Have you seen me lately
Ready for tomorrow, with a light in my eyes

I want to feel this
Like you do my beggar princess
And yes, it’s just a moment
Of truth with you and me in it

So why should we die?
So why should we die?
We’re special, you and I
