LyricsEdit

JEKYLL
 Sometimes I see past the horizon,
 sure of my way, where I am going.
 But where's the prize I have my eyes on?
 Where? There is just no knowing ...

 And when despair tears me in two,
 Who can I turn to but you?
 You know who I am ...
 Take me as I am!

LISA
 Look in my eyes - who do you see there?
 Someone you know or just a stranger?
 If you are wise, you will see me there.
 Love is the only danger!
 Love meaning me, love meaning you,
 we'll make that one dream come true.
 You know who I am ...
 Take me as I am!

BOTH
 Though fate won't always do what we desire,
 still we can set the world on fire!
 Give me you hand, give me your heart!

JEKYLL
 Swear to me, we'll never part!

LISA
 We'll never part!

JEKYLL
 You know who I am ...

LISA
 You know who I am ...

JEKYLL
 ... this is who I am!

LISA
 ... this is who I am!

BOTH
 Take me as I am ...
