Olivia, Olivia

Was it too hard to stay inside?
God only knows how hard you tried
Somebody lied and told you it was time
Some kisses are a crime

Olivia, Olivia

Begins a gentle mystery
Two start to question what they see
But beneath a call: both never be the same
We are a waiting game

Olivia, Olivia

This house of cards fell down and left you standing there
You played your hand, they vanished into air
The dealer stared…

But did you think that’s what we’re feeling?
Well, that’s not what we’ve known you for
Some say you mean more than all our silly games
They’re singing out our names

Olivia, Olivia
