I reached out my arms
And I touched you
With soft words
I whispered your name

I held you right on
The tip of my fingers
But that was as
Close I came

My eyes had a
Vision of sweet lips
Yielding beneath
My command

I held your love on
The tip of my fingers
But I let it slip right
Through my hands
But I let it slip right
Through my hands

Somebody took you
When I wasn't looking
And I should have known
From the start

It's a long, long way
From the tip of my fingers
To the love hidden
Deep in your heart
To the love hidden
Deep in your heart

I held your love on
The tip of my fingers
But I let it slip right
Through my hands
Yes, I let it slip right
Through my hands
