By Aaron Schroeder & David Grover

Where are the dreams
We dreamed when we were younger
Where are the songs we never got to sing
Oh how cold were the nights we slept without each other
Time doesn't wait, but time won't pass us by

If I could only touch your life
With just one part of me
You'll know how much you're needed
And I'll know I finally succeeded
If I could only touch your life with mine

So green the trees and oh so blue the skies
When you are looking through a lover's eyes
Darling these are the days, our days of love and laughter
There'll be no time for tears, the doubts and fears will fly

If I could only touch your life
With just one part of me
You'll know how much you're needed
And l'll know I finally succeeded
If I could only touch your life with mine

If I could only touch your life
With just one part of me
You'll know how much you're needed
And I'll know I finally succeeded
Oh won't you let me touch your life with mine
