The world I used to be afraid of doesn't scare me anymore
Cos I know the things that matter are behind another door
This world'll keep on turning and the stars'll always shine
And I started living on that night your heart became all mine

That first time that I saw your big brown eyes and long red hair
To have you give your heart to me became my only prayer
When I gave you mine you just used it for a while
And then you clutched on to another's and dropped me in your file

You never gave my heart back so my love you must have felt
Still I went crazy waiting for your heart to melt
You'd walk by with other guys and you'd blow me kiss
So I know you'll understand why I had to do a thing like this
I had to do a thing like this

The world I used to be afraid of doesn't scare me anymore
Cos I know the things that matter are behind another door
This world'll keep on turning and the stars'll always shine
And I started living on that night your heart became all mine

We walked along the Detroit river where we always used to go
But instead of holding hands you were shivering in the snow
To let you turn your back on true love would have been a mortal sin
So I held you underwater til you finally gave in
And you finally gave in

I used to be so frightened every night I turned and tossed
And wished this cruel world would give me back the soulmate I had lost
But now your heart belongs to me I can live now I've got love
And though you're dead I can face this world til I join you up above
I will join you up above

The world I used to be afraid of doesn't scare me anymore
Cos I know the things that matter are behind another door
This world'll keep on turning and the stars'll always shine
And I started living on that night your heart became all mine
