I'm holdin' on to you
When I close my eyes
You're still in my arms
And we never said goodbye
And it's all that I can do
To go on with my life
But that's supposed to be the reason
Why I'm here tonight

In a downtown restaurant with a friend of a friend
Well she sure likes to talk and I ain't heard a single word she's said

Chorus
Oh, but every now and then I nod
And I pretend to pay attention
And I say things like, "uh huh"
And, "yeah, you're right" and "are you kiddin'"
And I laugh when it seems
Like the right thing to do
It's hard to hold a conversation
Holdin' on to you

I'd give anything
Just to hear your voice
Or see you look at me and smile
Oh but what I miss the most

Is holdin' on to you
'Cause here I am tonight
Starin' at a woman
Who's the last thing on my mind

Chorus

When I close my eyes
You're still in my arms
And we never said goodbye
