Testo della canzone:
Waking up alone, like a man that failed … Trapped into the mist of our
fairytale And you know, you know, you know, I’m still inside
I knew it all along, but I couldn’t tell … This kind of love, would
lock my heart in jail You know, you know, you know, it’s doing timeCaught in the middle of, the dawn and the sunrise
Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes
Under the spotlight, I howl in the moonlight … Howling for youTake it on … take it on … and get me through the night Take it on … take it on … until the morning light
Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Takeiton…takeiton…takeitonI’ve heard it all before, people always say … Time can take the sorrow
and the pain away You know, you know, this love will never dieCaught in the middle of, the dawn and the sunrise
Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes
Under the spotlight, I howl in the moonlight … Howling for you Caught in the middle of, the dawn and the sunrise
Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes
Under the spotlight, I howl in the moonlight … Howling for you

Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Take it on … take it on … until the morning light
Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Takeiton…takeiton…takeiton

I cross the oceans, I fly on the skyline … Drive any road that, will bring me by your side

Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Take it on … take it on … until the morning light
Take it on … take it on … and get me through the night Takeiton…takeiton…takeitonCaught in the middle of, the dawn and the sunrise Life is a miracle, I saw it in your eyes

Testo della canzone: 
A language I don’t understand
You speak, I listen, I’m your friend,
You hypnotize me…Take my hand,
A million faces tied in chains,
You ride a black horse in the rain,
You hypnotize me…Don’t escape no more, no more,
no more, no more,
‘cause we are all…Made of stars
Silver fragments fallin’
We are… made of stars
We are made of stars,
Searching for that secret promise,
Made of starsYou heal me, you fill me
Ignite a flame within me
Hypnotize me

mmmm… I’m begging you
Don’t escape no more, no more,
no more, no more,
‘cause we are all…

Made of stars
Silver fragments fallin’
We are… made of stars
We are made of stars,
Searching for that secret promise,
Made of stars

Tell me that you understand,
Come in close and take my hand,
Let’s float across the sky line,
There’s no floor and there’s no ceiling –
Dance with me like we are made of stars

‘Cause we are, ‘cause we are,
‘Cause we are, ‘cause we are,
We are, we are, we are…

We are made of stars,
Silver fragments fallin’
We are… made of stars
We are made of stars,
Searching for that secret promise,
Made of stars

Dance with me like we are made of stars…
Dance with me like we are made of stars
