  • Is our secret safe tonight?
    And are we out of sight?
    Or will our world come tumbling down?

    Will they find our hiding place?
    Is this our last embrace?
    Or will the walls start caving in?

    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    But it should've been right
    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    Let our hearts ignite
    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    Are we digging a hole?
    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    This is outta control

    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    It could never last
    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    Must erase it fast
    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    But it could've been right
    (It could be wrong, could be)

    Love is our resistance
    They keep us apart and they won't stop breaking us down
    And hold me, our lips must always be sealed

    If we live our life in fear
    I'll wait a thousand years
    Just to see you smile again

    Quell your prayers for love and peace
    You'll wake the thought police
    We can hide the truth inside

    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    But it should've been right
    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    Let our hearts ignite
    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    Are we digging a hole?
    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    This is outta control

    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    It could never last
    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    Must erase it fast
    (It could be wrong, could be wrong)
    But it could've been right
    (It could be wrong, could be)

    Love is our resistance!
    They keep us apart and won't stop breaking us down
    And hold me, our lips must always be sealed

    The night has reached its end
    We can't pretend
    We must run
    We must run
    It's time to run

    Take us away from here
    Protect us from further harm
