We walked on the beach beside that old hotel,
They're tearing it down now
But it's just as well.
I haven't shown you everything a man can do,
So stay with me baby I got plans for you.

This is the time to remember
'Cause it will not last forever,
These are the days to hold on to
'Cause we wont although we'll want to.
This is the time
The time is gonna change.
You've given me the best of you
And now I need the rest of you.

Did you know that before you came into my life,
Some kind of miracle that I survived.
Some day we will both look back and have to laugh;
We lived through a lifetime and the aftermath.

This is the time to remember,
'Cause it will not last forever,
These are the days to hold onto,
'Cause we wont although we'll want to.
This is the time,
The time is gonna change,
I know we gotta move somehow,
But I don't want to lose you now.

Sometimes it's so easy to let a day slip on by
Without even seein' each other at all,
But this is the time you'll turn back to,
And so will I
And those will be days you can never recall.

And so we embrace again behind the dunes.
This beach is so cold on winter afternoons,
Ahh but holding you close
Is like holding the summer sun,
I'm worn from the memory of days to come...

This is the time to remember
'Cause it willl not last forever,
These are the days to hold on to,
'Cause we wont although we'll want to.
This is the time,
But the time's about to change.
You've given me the best of you but now I need
The rest of you.
