[Cornelius:]
It only takes a moment
For your eyes to meet and then
Your heart knows in a moment
You will never be alone again
I held her for an instant
But my arms felt sure and strong
It only takes a moment
To be loved a whole life long...
Clerk:
I missed a few words back there, Mr. Hackl.
Right after 'it only'...

[All in docket:]
...Takes a moment!
But his arms felt sure and strong
It only takes a moment

[Mrs. Molloy:]
He held me for an instant
But his arms felt safe and strong
It only takes a moment
To be loved a whole life long

[Cornelius:]
And that is all
That love's about

[Mrs. Molloy:]
And we'll recall when time runs out

[Both:]
That it only took a moment
To be loved a whole life long!
