lyrics

You heard my song
Then caught my eye and you stunned me
It was then my world froze
Like those Moscow winter snows

I've heard the guns
Of love and war, but they're silent now
And an uneasy truce
Restrains my warlike soul...

I would build you an Arc de Triomphe
For your love would make me Napoleon of my world
Oh but I think that you may be my 1812
And I fear that I have gone too far this time
And now I am in exile

I've seen the gulls
Winging their way, free from bars or chains
To the Italian coast
Within eyesight, yet so far away

I would build you an Arc de Triomphe
For your love would make me Napoleon of my world
Oh but I think that you may be my Waterloo
And I fear that I have gone too far this time
And now I am in exile

I would build you an Arc de Triomphe
For your love would make me Napoleon of my world
Oh but I think that you may be my 1812
And I fear that I have gone too far this time
And now I am in exile

Now you've heard my song
And though I near the end I am not done
For I shall stage a coup d'etat
For your heart

I would build you an Arc de Triomphe
For your love would make me Napoleon of my world
Oh but I think that you may be my Waterloo
And I fear that I have gone too far this time

Je te constuirais un Arc de Triomphe
Pour ton amour me ferait Napoleon de mon monde
Mais je pense que tu pourraise etre mon Waterloo
Et j'ai peur que je suis alle plus loin cette fois
Maintenant je suis dans l'exil
