  • It's not important for you to know my name
    Nor I to know yours
    If we communicate for two minutes only
    It will be enough

    For knowing that someone in this world
    Feels as desperate as me
    And what you give is what you get

    It doesn't matter if we never meet again
    What we have said will always remain
    If we get through for two minutes only
    It will be a start

    For knowing that someone in this life
    Loves with a passion called hate
    And what you give is what you get

    If I never ever see you
    If I never ever see you
    If I never ever see you, again

    If I never ever see you
    If I never ever see you
    If I never ever see you, again

    And what you give is what you get
    And what you give is what you get
    And what you give is what you get

    And what you give is what you get
    And what you give is what you get
    And what you give is what you get Writer/s: PAUL JOHN WELLER
