Lyrics
I remember you’ve forgotten to remember
I wonder why?
Baby, it was just a (one-way ticket to love)
Ticket to love (one-way ticket) hmm

You were lonely, without a friend
That was when our romance began
Baby, it was just a, just a (one-way ticket to love)
Ticket to love (one-way ticket), ooh

Like the dew on the mountain
Like the foam way out on the sea
Like the bubbles on the fountain
You’re gone forever from me, yeah

I loved you kindly, I loved you so blind
But I loved you honest and I loved you true
But maybe, baby, it was just a (one-way ticket to love)
Ticket to love (one-way ticket), ooh, hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm

Like the dew on the mountain
Like the foam way out out on the sea
Like the bubbles on the fountain
You’re gone forever from me, baby, don’t do it

I loved you kindly, but I loved you so blind
But I loved you honest and everybody knows I loved you true
Maybe, baby, maybe it was just a (one-way ticket to love)
Grab about, release it (one-way ticket)

Yeah (one-way ticket to love
Oh-oh-oh, one way ticket to love) yeah-yeah-yeah (oh)
(One-way ticket to love) oh (oh-oh-oh)
