Stefan Andersson - Emperors' Day lyrics

We took a ferry from the shore
To see our island once again
So beautiful to the eye that it hurt
We were the emperors
'Til the morning light
On the run from our king's call

With words of truth
A vow for love and for pleasure
We got to deal our cards well
Take our chances when they come
Never let them slip away
Or deny them

I wanna wake up in the night
And listen to your breath
I wanna wake up for your love

With a heart on fire for life life life
And a burning desire for more
