I'm not here as a friend
I have a job to do
it's strange to find my work
should lead me here to you
Chris knows all about you
I have shown him all this
but I think that it's time
you know all about Chris
please, don't you see that's all I live for?
I have him and nothing more
at night, everything that's not him
disappears behind my door
please, he went crazy when he lost you
spoke to no one for a year
then he finally said "I'm home now,
my life has to go on here"
please, let me finish talking, please
this was three whole years ago
yes, yes I know
I know how pain can grow
when the rock you hold onto
is a love miles away, listen:
please, I already know the story
take us to the U.S.A.
when we've finished here, you'll see him
Chris arrived with me today!
oh Tam! He's here!
he is here, he's so near
we might breathe the same air tonight!
your father's here
oh Tam, it's true I can't tell her like this
my dream was right I should not be the one
you'll see him soon! Chris must come see his son
please, they don't say
don't you see we've been in the files
watched over? there's a woman in love
as we crossed here
the wildest seas? what sustained her for miles
even god wants us together Chris still knows nothing of
can I end this journey, can I end this journey
(JOHN, unable to tell KIM the truth, returns to the hotel to inform
CHRIS and ELLEN of the impossible situation. The ENGINEER doesn't
trust any of them, least of all an American GI who has fathered a bui-doi
son, and goes in search of CHRIS'S hotel address so that he can send
KIM there directly. )
