He's an Englishman, she's an American woman
She believes in him, so she writes him and says
Do you want to come to America?
It's a free wonderland when you're wicked and wild
But it's the best we can do, it's the best thing around
Even in the legend of euphoria

Take this heart and we'll walk right out of here
Take this love and the world will disappear
Take these walls and we'll trade them for a better life

Picture everything glowing sapient warm
Like a happy ending, like a fairy tale dream
That's the way a moment hits reality
Dreams in stereo, dreams in technicolor
All the reason to dream, all the more reason why
I believe in love and I believe in you

So if you leave me all alone
You'll be leaving a lot of things
When you're out there on your own
You'll be wishing you hadn't, babe
So when you leave me all alone
You can never come back again

May the best of this last the rest of your life
'Cause all the rest of it will fade away overnight
That's the way it is and it will always be
You're a miracle, you're a god of your own
Individual heart, undeniable home
This is who you are and who you've always been
