One more kiss, dear lyrics

One more kiss, dear
One more sigh
Only this, dear
It's goodbye
For our love is such pain
And such pleasure
And I'll treasure till I die
So for now, dear
Aurevoir, madame

But I'm how-d'ye, not farewell
For in time we may have a love's glory
Our love story to tell

Just as every autumn
Leaves fall from the tree
Tumble to the ground and die
So in the springtime
Like sweet memories
They will return as will I

Like the sun, dear
Upon high
We'll return, dear
To the sky
And we'll banish the pain and the sorrow
Until tomorrow goodbye

One more kiss, dear
One more sigh
Only this, dear
Is goodbye
For our love is such passion
Such pleasure
I'll treasure till I die

Like the sun, dear
Upon high
We'll return, dear
To the sky
And we'll banish the pain and the sorrow
Until tomorrow goodbye

* Note:
The lyrics are spoken in Arabic with an Egyptian accent (Demis was raised in Egypt as a child)
Most of the words however are gibberish and sometimes almost resemble other Arabic words but they are altered and arranged differently so they sound meaningless. 
Listening to the lyrics as whole does not built into a story and there is little sense trying to make sense of it.
At the end of there is a little passage where it does convey two meaningful sentences

** the translation:
Tell me my dear?
Tell me my mother?

Tears in rain lyrics

"I've seen things, you people wouldn't believe, hmmm.
... attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I've watched C Beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.
All those moments, will be lost in time like tears in rain..."
["... time to die ..."]
