Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It must be something that we call love
Wherever I go I’m coming back
And time cannot knock me off my track
This resolution is final
It must be something that we call love
It’s when you’re craving to say her name
And my reality seems to break apart with her arrival

[Chorus]
No need to worry, rain falling down
It’s our happiest story and there’s no one around
We will go for it and I know you’ll be mine forever
Windows wide open, flying so high
Both of us roaming through magnificent sky
Rain keeps on falling and I know you’ll be mine forever

[Verse 2]
It must be something that we call dream
When all you told me, I know by heart
The type of beauty I call supreme
And how it’s driving me crazy

[Chorus]
No need to worry, rain falling down
It’s our happiest story and there’s no one around
We will go for it and I know you’ll be mine forever
Windows wide open, flying so high
Both of us roaming through magnificent sky
Rain keeps on falling and I know you’ll be mine forever

[Bridge]
You’ll always sing me something new
I will always follow
When I first saw you here I knew
That I was blind before you

[Chorus]
No need to worry, rain falling down
It’s our happiest story and there’s no one around
We will go for it and I know you’ll be mine forever
Windows wide open, flying so high
Both of us roaming through magnificent sky
Rain keeps on falling and I know you’ll be mine forever
