Apoptygma Berzerk – Cambodia (Kim Wilde Cover)

Official music video 'Cambodia (Kim Wilde Cover)' per­formed by 'Apoptygma Berzerk' taken from the album 'You And Me Against The World' (2005).

Lyrics (Orginally by Kim Wilde):

Well he was Thailand based
She was an air­force wife
He used to fly weekends
It was the easy life
But then it turned around
And he began to change
She didn't won­der then
She didn't think it strange

But then he got a call
He had to leave that night
He couldn't say too much
But it would be alright
He didn't need to pack
They'd meet the next night
He had a job to do
Flying to Cambodia

And as the nights passed by
She tried to trace the past
The way he used to look
The way he used to laugh
I guess she'll nev­er know
What got inside his soul
She couldn't make it out
Just couldn't take it all

He had the sad­dest eyes
The girl had ever seen
He used to cry some nights
As though he lived a dream
And as she held him close
He used to search her face
As if she knew the truth
Lost inside Cambodia

But then a call came through
They said he'd soon be home
She had to pack a case
And they would make a rendez-vous
But now a year has passed
And not a single word
And all the love she knew
Has dis­ap­peared out in the haze

Cambodia, don't cry now, no tears now

And now the years have passed
With not a single word
But there is only one thing left
I know for sure
She won't see his face again
