    I could take all the time I had.

                 Am             F                   C                Am           F      - G

    But I’m not gonna wait when a moment can vanish so fast,

                Em                   F                                   F      - G

    ’cause every kiss is a kiss you can never get back.

2. When the answer to all my dreams

              Am            F           C

    is as close as a touch away,

     Em                                F                                Dm    - G

    why am I here holding back what I’m trying to say ?

Hold me close               to your heart,

            C                              G

    and all our tomorrows begin.

    Am                             F                         G

    After tonight we will never be lonely again.
