In the Air Tonight

The gunshot turned in endlessly
The windows broke down
The chairs dismantled
The tables fell down
There were no places to hide
Even the walls failed to protect us

I shivered in the air tonight.
I feared my life tonight.

As I cried and shouted for help
You suddenly held my hands
The silence fell through
Your eyes glanced with hope
And I gave my trust to you
To take me with you

You calmed me in peace
Mumbled me with courage “We will make it through”

Just like another priceless moment
I felt you in my heart in the air tonight
I smiled with empty glance at this time
Time was running so fast
And for the last time, I wished you were mine
I wished you had confessed me your love

I believed you were mine
I still do

As the cops walked in rage
Looked down and pitied on us
Our hands clutched together in blood
Prayed for another same future with each other
We smiled at each other in tears
Ready to die in the air tonight

With my empty heart
Filled with my truest love for you
