The Voices of Bilthoven

Stuck – Caro Emerald


I CLOSE MY EYES AND DREAM ABOUT A SUNNY HOLIDAY
I WISH THAT I WAS BEACHIN’ DOWN IN SAINT TROPEZ
OR SITTING IN THE LOBBY AT THE FABULOUS PIERRE
WITH DIAMONDS ON MY FINGERS AND NOT A SINGLE CARE

INSTEAD I’M ON THE AVENUE WHERE NOBODY GOES
WITH FIELDS OF GREEN THAT WILTED LIKE A LAST SUMMER ROSE
SOME PEOPLE CALL IT PARADISE, BUT I CALL IT PAIN
BABY TAKE ME ANYWHERE, BUT NOT HERE AGAIN

REFREIN:
WHY AM I SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
STANDING HERE WITH NOTHING TO DO
WONDERING IF I REALLY LOVE YOU, OH OH
I GUESS THAT I DO
WHY AM I SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
STANDING HERE WITH NOTHING TO DO
WONDERING IF I REALLY LOVE YOU OH OH
I GUESS THAT I DO

YOU PROMISED ME A MOTORCADE AND ENDLESS PERFUME
A PALACE IN GENEVA WITH A PERFECT VIEW
AND DREAMS PAINTED YELLOW LIKE THE COLOUR OF GOLD
AND DINE WITH KINGS AND QUEENS UNTIL THE FOOD GETS COLD

INSTEAD I’M ON THE EDGE OF ALL I THOUGHT I WOULD BE
THIS DREAM IS NOW A COMEDY I DON’T WANNA SEE
SOME PEOPLE CALL IT LAUGHTER BUT I CALL IT PAIN
BABY TAKE ME ANYWHERE BUT NOT HERE AGAIN

REFREIN:
WHY AM I SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
STANDING HERE WITH NOTHING TO DO
WONDERING IF I REALLY LOVE YOU, OH OH
I GUESS THAT I DO
WHY AM I SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
STANDING HERE WITH NOTHING TO DO
WONDERING IF I REALLY LOVE YOU, OH OH
I GUESS THAT I DO, I DO

I KNOW WE HAVE A CHEMISTRY
THIS COMBINATION’S HEAVENLY
BUT DON’T FORGET YOU PROMISED ME
EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING

REFREIN:
WHY AM I SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
STANDING HERE WITH NOTHING TO DO
WONDERING IF I REALLY LOVE YOU, OH OH
I GUESS THAT I DO
WHY AM I SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
STANDING HERE WITH NOTHING TO DO
WONDERING IF I REALLY LOVE YOU, OH OH
I GUESS THAT I DO, I DO, I DO
OH I GUESS THAT I DO, I DO
