Lyrics

We three, we're all alone,
Living in a memory
My echo, my shadow and me.

We three, we're not a crowd,
We're not even company
My echo, my shadow, and me.

What good is the moonlight,
The silvery moonlight
That shines above.
I walk with my shadow,
I talk with my echo,
But where's the one I love?

We three, we'll wait for you,
Even till eternity
My echo, my shadow and me.

~ SOLO ~

We three, we're all alone,
Living in a memory
My echo, my shadow and me.

What good is the moonlight,
The silvery moonlight
That shines above.
I walk with my shadow,
I talk with my echo,
But where's the one I love?

We three, we'll wait for you,
Even till eternity
My echo, (echo) my shadow and me.
We'll be here waiting
My echo, my shadow, and me
