Verse is in the key of Cm, chorus is in C.
Jealousy, Night and day you torture me,
I sometimes wonder, If this spell that I'm under,
Can only be a melody, For I know no one but me,
Has won your heart but, When the music starts,
My peace departs.  From the moment they languorous strain,
And we surrender to all its charm once again,
This jealousy, That tortures me,
Is ecstacy, Mystery, Pain!
We dance to a tango of love,
Your heart beats with mine as we sway.
Your eyes give the answer I'm dreaming of,
That soft word your cruel lips will never say.
I fear that the music will end,
And shatter the spell it may lend.
To make me believe, When your eyes just deceive,
And it's only the tango to you love.
