Barcelona, Barcelona, oooh, ooh
Barcelona, Barcelona, oooh, ooh

Viva
Ahhhhhhhh
Ah, ah, ah, ahhh

I had this perfect dream
Un sueño me envolvió
This dream was me and you
Tal vez estás aquí
I want all the world to see
Un instinto me guiaba
A miracle sensation
My guide and inspiration
Now my dream is slowly coming true

The wind is a gentle breeze (oooh)
El me habló de ti (ah, ah, ah, ahh)
The bells are ringing out
El canto vuela
They're calling us together
Guiding us forever
Wish my dream would never go away

Barcelona
It was the first time that we met
Barcelona
How can I forget
The moment that you stepped into the room
You took my breath away

Barcelona
La música vibró
Barcelona
Y ella nos unió
And if God willing
We will meet again
Someday

Ah, ahh, shaking all our lives

Come alive
Viva

Ah, ahh, shaking all our lives

Such a beautiful horizon
Barcelona
Like a jewel in the sun
Por ti seré gaviota de tu bella mar

If God is willing
If God is willing

Lyrics:
You had to kill the conversation
You always had the upper hand
Got caught in love and stepped in sinking sand (sand, sand)
You had to go and ruin all our plans

Packed your bags and you're leaving home
Got a one way ticket and you're all set to go
But we have one more day together, so

Love me like there's no tomorrow
Hold me in your arms, tell me you mean it
This is our last goodbye and very soon it will be over
But today just love me like there's no tomorrow

I guess we drift alone in separate ways
I don't have all that far to go
God knows, I've learnt to play the lonely man
I've never felt so low in all my life

We were born to be just losers
So I guess there's a limit on how far we go
But we only have one more day together, so (oooh, ooh, oooh, ooooh)

Love me like there's no tomorrow
Hold me in your arms, tell me you mean it
This is our last goodbye and very soon it will be over
But today just love me like there's no tomorrow

Tomorrow - God knows just where I'll be
Tomorrow - who knows just what's in store for me
Anything can happen but we only have one more day together, yeah (oooohhh)
Just one more day forever, so (ooooh, ah, ah, ah, ahh)

Love me like there's no tomorrow
Hold me in your arms, tell me you mean it
This is our last goodbye and very soon it will be over
But today just love me like there's no tomorrow

So love me like there's no tomorrow
Hold me in your arms, tell me you mean it
This is our last goodbye and very soon it will be over
But today just love me like there's no tomorrow

Time waits for nobody (ooooh, oooh)
Time waits for nobody
Time waits for nobody (ooooh, ooh, oooh)
We all must plan our hopes together
Or we'll have no more future at all
Time waits for nobody

We might as well be deaf and dumb and blind
I know that sounds unkind
But it seems to me we've not listened to
Or spoken about it all
The fact that time is running out
For us all

Time
Waits for nobody
Time waits for no-one
We've got to build this world together
Or we'll have no more future at all
Because time
It waits for nobody

You don't need me tell you what's gone wrong (gone wrong, gone wrong)
You know what's going on
But it seems to me we've not cared enough (ooooh, oooh)
Or confided in each other at all
It seems like we've all got our backs against the wall

Time
Time
We've got to trust in one another (ooooh, oooh)
Or there'll be no more future at all
(Time)

Time waits for nobody, no, no
Time don't wait for no-one
Let's learn to be friends with one another (ooooh, oooh)
Or there'll be no more future at all

Time, time, time, time
Waits for nobody
Waits for nobody
Time, time, time, time
Waits for nobody at all

Time waits for nobody
Ooooh, oooh
There'll be no more future at all

Time, time, time, time
Waits for nobody
Waits for nobody
Time, time, time, time
Waits for nobody at all

Time waits for nobody, yeah
Time don't wait (don't wait), waits for no-one
Let us free this world forever (ooooh, oooh)
And build a brand new future for us all
Ahh, ah, ahh, ah
Time
Waits for nobody, nobody, nobody
For no-one

Time don't wait for nobody at all
