From Timing Is Everything
By Chris de Burgh

Year Released: 2002

Playing Time: 3:56



There was a time the fire was burning bright,
And everything was shining in the light,
But when the heart is cold, together we're alone,
Thinking of reasons to stay away;

There was a time that love was in our bed,
Eternity in every word we said,
But when desire has gone, it's hard to carry on,
Going through the motions, when there's nothing there;

You have got my heart, and all I want from you,
Is just a kiss before we say goodbye;

And let me keep my memories of all the times we were amazing,
And I will keep in memories the best that love can be;

There was a time we had so much to say,
Together at the ending of the day,
But when the only words are all the ones that hurt,
Try to remember the way we were;

Take the past and hold it like a photograph,
'Cos it's the only way to say goodbye;

And we will keep these memories of all the times we were amazing,
And we will keep in memories the best that love can be,
The best that love can be;

We were amazing.
