  • I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish, I'll be your fantasy.
    I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need.
    I love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do
    I will be strong, I will be faithful 'cause I'm counting on a new beginning.
    A reason for living. A deeper meaning.

    I want to stand with you on a mountain.
    I want to bathe with you in the sea.
    I want to lay like this forever.
    Until the sky falls down on me

    And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky,
    I'll make a wish send it to heaven then make you want to cry
    The tears of joy for all the pleasure and the certainty.
    That we're surrounded by the comfort and protection of
    The highest power, in lonely hours, the tears devour you

    I want to stand with you on a mountain,
    I want to bathe with you in the sea.
    I want to lay like this forever,
    Until the sky falls down on me

    Oh can you see it baby?
    You don't have to close your eyes
    'Cause it's standing right before you.
    All that you need will surely come

    I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish, I'll be your fantasy.
    I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need.
    I'll love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do

    I want to stand with you on a mountain
    I want to bathe with you in the sea.
    I want to lay like this forever.
    Until the sky falls down on me

    I want to stand with you on a mountain
    I want to bathe with you in the sea.
    I want to live like this forever.
    Until the sky falls down on me
