If you're looking for a place you can fly together
And you're really afraid of what you're leaving behind
Take the easiest road but take care my brother
For you'll never find peace with a troubled mind

Far better to love each other
Than to worry so deeply 'bout the place you're in
And far better to kiss her softly
Than looking back on a love
You'll never have again

Time's as fickle as the sky in winter
And two hearts always were better than one
And love has the wings of a tireless angel
She'll stay beside you till the day is done

La la la la, La la la la

Far better to love each other
Than to worry so deeply 'bout the place you're in
And far better to kiss her softly
Than looking back on a love
You'll never have again
You'll never have again
No no no no never again
You'll never have again
