Last night, I touched your fingertips
And when I touched your lips
I fell in love last night...
Last night, I felt your heart beat fast
Swiftly the moments passed
Why couldn't it last last night?
Tonight here I am all alone
My lovely dream has flown
Why must I be alone?
Last night, why did we say goodbye?
My heart keeps asking why,
Why couldn't it last last night...?
