I didn't see you standing there
You took me by surprise
In your long silk dress
And those deep brown eyes
I was captured by your smile
But when fate put out its hand
You're walking to your love
How was I to resist
The passion and the kiss
We raised the future alone

She stole my body and soul
With a heart next to mine
I didn't wanna face the day
But I have no choice when we kiss

She said: Goodnight my sweet pretender
Tonight we live forever
One heart, one soul
On the edge of the world
Goodnight my sweet pretender
Feels like we died together
In each others arms
On the edge of the world

When she touched me so warm
And so was her body
A kiss she gave to me
The name she said to pain and pleasure
Time my soul rescue me
But I know I'd be here on my own
As soon as the sun would rise
I didn't wanna face the day
But I have no choice when we kiss

She said: Goodnight my sweet pretender
Tonight we live forever
One heart, one soul
On the edge of the world
Goodnight my sweet pretender
Feels like we died together
In each others arms
On the edge of the world

I've dreamed of a place I know
With the shadows of my past still remain
You're buried in the midst of time
For always you'll be the sun that shines
Shines on me

She said: Goodnight my sweet pretender
Tonight we live forever
One heart, one soul
On the edge of the world
Goodnight my sweet pretender
Feels like we died together
In each others arms
On the edge of the world

Goodnight, goodnight
My sweet pretender
Goodnight, goodnight
My sweet pretender
