I reach to touch the walls around me
The shadows of the night surround me
Alone I face my destiny: to die of love

They say our love has been forbidden
But what we feel can not be hidden
It’s very possible, you see, to die of love

To die of love
How to live far forever with you
Just to live life together with you
That’s the choice that I make and a chance I must take

To live, my love must find expression
And so I make my last confession
Without you it’s my destiny, to die of love

This world of ours does not grow younger
Some die of illness, some of hunger
I stand before eternity, to die of love

That’s why I try to find a way now
I only live from day to day now
And yet it’s possible, you see, to die of love

To die of love
How to live far forever with you
Just to live life together with you
That’s the choice that I make and a chance I must take

I hear their whispers when they see us
If all their words condemn or free us
I wonder will they sentence me?

To die of love
To die of love
To die of love
