  • Here as I sit
    At this empty café
    Thinking of you
    I remember
    All those moments
    Lost in wonder
    That we'll never
    Find again
    Though the world
    Is my oyster
    It's only a shell
    Full of memories
    And here by the Seine
    Notre-Dame casts
    A long lonely shadow

    Now, only sorrow
    No tomorrow
    There's no today for us
    Nothing is there
    For us to share
    But yesterday

    These cities may change
    But there always remains
    My obsession
    Through silken waters
    My gondola glides
    And the bridge, it sighs

    I remember
    All those moments
    Lost in wonder
    That we'll never
    Find again
    There's no more time for us
    Nothing is there
    For us to share
    But yesterdays

    Ecce momenta
    Illa mirabilia
    Quae captabit
    In aeternum
    Memor
    Modo dolores
    Sunt in dies
    Non est reliquum
    Vero tantum
    Comminicamus
    Perdita

    Tous ces moments
    Perdus dans l'enchantement
    Qui ne reviendront
    Jamais
    Pas d'aujourd'hui pour nous
    Pour nous il n'y a rien
    A partager
    Sauf le passé

    Tous ces moments
    Perdus dans l'enchantement
    Qui ne reviendront
    Jamais Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
