Caesars have squandered jewels on you
Empires they build on shifting sands
Trading for kisses in a queue
Like sacrificial lambs
Let Rome in Tiber melt away
Legions that conquer rise then fall
I’ll kneel to the gods and then I’ll pray
Do you hear my call?

You came you saw you conquered me
Right then I knew you wanted me
Burning in flames of desire
Burning in flames of desire
You came you saw you taunted me
High Priestess powers anointed me
This is the torch, this is the flame
This is the passion wild and untamed
Burning in flames of desire

The spirit of romance in your smile
Sweeping me back two thousand years
To bathe in the waters of the Nile
In Cleopatra’s tears
Together we sail cross dessert seas
Is it true? Is it déjà-vu?
It whispers in the breeze
Do you feel it too?

You came you saw you conquered me
Right then I knew you wanted me
Burning in flames of desire
Burning in flames of desire
You came you saw you taunted me
High Priestess powers anointed me
This is the torch, this is the flame
This is the passion wild and untamed
Burning in flames of desire

Veni Vidi Vici

You came you saw you conquered me
Right then I knew you wanted me
Burning in flames of desire
You came you saw you taunted me
High priestess powers anointed me
This is the torch, this is the flame
This is the passion wild and untamed
Burning in flames of desire
