Still the storm clouds hanging over me, close to the edge
Can't shake it off, I'm reeling with the aftershock

Summer's here, but there's no dancing in the street
Now backs are turned, look on the floor
No welcome mat, a bolted door

You've had your say, there's no way back for us
Excuses made, the dancing's through

What happened to our playfulness, our joie de vivre?
What happened to our jeux sans frontieres?

No fond farewell for you or me
No one waves goodbye
No holding back the tears

No final kiss, just foolish pride
So many years, no way back for us this time

No way back for us?
Is there no way back for us?
The bluebirds sing, sweet au revoir
Will we meet again?

No way back for us? really no way back for us?
Close the door, turn away
No final rendezvous.... Goodbye
