Tonight my love for you will die.
Tonight, with the moon up high.

The hope my heart was clinging to
Is worth no more, no more than you.

Tonight I can't find a friend
Tonight, the streets will never end

You were my life, my dream come true
I gave my love, my soul, to only you.

Tonight will turn my heart to stone
And who that cares may take it and make it his own

Tonight all my faith is gone.
Tonight, feelings I have none.

A stranger's hand will surely please,
And sooth away the hurt, the memories.

Tonight I´ll give all my heart
So anyone can take it and tear it apart.

Tonight I have a heart of stone.
And who that cares may take it and make it his own
