Chorus
We will always be connected,
Wherever in the world we may be;
We will always be connected,
Close your eyes and think of me.

Verse 1
Her eyes cast me a thought,
An idea to make me smile,
That I turned around in my hands a while,
And wondered at its beauty and simplicity.

And in time it came to be,
That's the way of inevitability,
And we held the whole world in our hands a while,
And tasted its darkness and complexity.

Bridge1
Do you believe, like I do, that our dreams are a place
Where our souls can prepare for the freedom death brings?
In a landscape of shadows where memory steals on silent wings
I will find you, look behind you.

Chorus
We will always be connected,
Wherever in the world we may be;
We will always be connected,
Close your eyes and think of me.

Verse 2
Surrounded by her love
That, like the raging sea,
Destroyed all I had, swept my friends from me,
And trapped me in a cell of greenest jealousy.

A drowning man will cling
To any rope that's thrown,
But still, in dreams, she comes to me and whispers 'I won't let you go',
And I yield to her beauty and duplicity.

Bridge2
You'll believe, like I do, that our dreams are the place
Where our souls can prepare for the freedom death brings.
In a landscape of shadows your secrets sing to me alone,
Now wake up, pick up the telephone..

Telephone chorus

We will always be connected,
Wherever in the world we may be;
We will always be connected,
Close your eyes and think of me...

Close your eyes...
Close your eyes and think of me...
