Lyrics HOW IMPORTANT CAN IT BE
THAT I TASTED OTHER LIPS?
THAT WAS LONG BEFORE
YOU CAME TO ME
WITH THE MAGIC
OF YOUR KISS!
SO THE STORY GOT AROUND
OF AN OLD ROMANCE AND ME;
BUT IT HAPPENED
OH! SO LONG AGO,
HOW IMPORTANT CAN IT BE?

MINE WAS A YOUNG
AND A FOOLISH HEART,
SEEKING LOVE
AT EV'RY TURN;
BUT I HAVE GROWN
SO MUCH WISER NOW;
EVEN FOOLISH HEARTS
CAN LEARN.

LET THE PAST JUST FADE AWAY,
WHY GET LOST IN YESTERDAY?
THE IMPORTANT THING
IS HERE AND NOW,
AND OUR LOVE
IS HERE TO STAY.

Lyrics [verse]:
I DON'T EVER CARE
TO RISE TO POWER,
I WOULD RATHER BE WITH YOU
AN HOUR.
ALL THE THINGS
THAT ONE CAN BUY
AREN'T WORTH
A LOVER'S SIGH.

[Chorus]:
I DON’T WANT TO SET THE WORLD ON FIRE
I JUST WANT TO START
A FLAME IN YOUR HEART
I HAVE BUT ONE DESIRE
AND THAT ONE IS YOU
NO OTHER WILL DO
I’VE LOST ALL AMBITION
FOR WORLDLY ACCLAIM
I JUST WANT TO BE
THE ONE YOU LOVE
AND WITH YOUR ADMISSION
THAT YOU FEEL THE SAME
I’LL HAVE REACHED THE GOAL
I’M DREAMING OF
BELIEVE ME
I DON’T WANT TO SET THE WORLD ON FIRE
I JUST WANT TO START
A FLAME IN YOUR HEART

Lyrics JET, MY LOVE,
YOUR BLACK EYES
HAVE CAPTURED ME
AND I'M HELPLESS
IN THE WEB
THAT YOU SPIN.
I'LL REGRET, MY LOVE,
REGRET
YOU'VE ENRAPTURED ME,
IN THIS MIDNIGHT MAZE,
THIS EBONY BLAZE!

YOU'LL FLY AWAY
FOR I KNOW
YOU'RE JUST A SLAVE
IN SEARCH
OF LIFE'S MYSTERIES,
THE THRILLS
THAT YOU CRAVE!

NOT EVEN YOU CAN TELL
WHAT SMOLDERING SECRETS
HIDE
IN THE DARK INSIDE
OF YOUR RESTLESS SOUL!
BUT I'LL GO ON
ADORING YOU,
FOR HOW CAN I FORGET?
YOUR MEMORY
WON'T LET ME,
JET, MY LOVE.

Lyrics WHEN THE LIGHTS GO ON AGAIN
ALL OVER THE WORLD,
AND THE BOYS ARE HOME AGAIN
ALL OVER THE WORLD.
AND RAIN OR SNOW
IS ALL THAT MAY FALL
FROM THE SKIES ABOVE,
A KISS WON'T MEAN GOODBYE,
BUT HELLO TO LOVE.
WHEN THE LIGHTS GO ON AGAIN
ALL OVER THE WORLD,
AND THE SHIPS WILL SAIL AGAIN
ALL OVER THE WORLD.
THEN WE'LL HAVE TIME FOR THINGS
LIKE WEDDING RINGS
AND FREE HEARTS WILL SING
WHEN THE LIGHTS GO ON AGAIN
ALL OVER THE WORLD.
