For a moment I lived in Paris
If only in my mind
Across the world but hand in hand
Hallelujah, You Were Mine

And for a moment we wrote love songs
If only love were true
And when I found I wanted us, well
Hallelujah, So Did You

For a while when I first met you
I couldn't watch your face
It wasn't strange or out of reach, but
Hallelujah, It Was Grace

And while you hope I'll always need you
And I hope you'll need me, too
It was fire that we never doubted
Hallelujah, We Just Knew

Sometimes I know it's frightening
Sometimes I know it's wrong
Our hearts will clash like lightening
And when the flash of love is gone
Carry on
Carry on

What would it take to love you?
What would it take to run?
What would it take to love you?
