Night and day you are the one

Only you beneath the moon and under the sun

Whether near to me or far
It's no matter darling where you are

I think of you

Night and day

Day and night

Why is it so
That this longing for you follows wherever I go

In the roaring traffic's boom

In the silence of my lonely room

I think of you

Night and day

Night and day under the hide of me

There's an oh such a hungry yearning

Burning inside of me

And this torment won't be trough

Till you let me spent my life making love to you

Night and day
Day and night

(short bridge)

Night and day under the hide of me

There's an oh such a hungry yearning

Burning inside of me

And this torment won't be trough

Till you let spent my life making love to you

Day and night
Night and day
