Again
This couldn't happen again
This is that once in a lifetime
This is the thrill divine

What's more
This never happened before
Though I have prayed for a lifetime
That such as you would suddenly, suddenly be mine

Mine to hold as I'm holding you now
And never, never, never so near
Mine to have when the now
And the here disappear

What matters, what matters, dear, for when
This doesn't happen again
We'll have this moment forever
But never, never again

Mine to hold as I'm holding you now
And never, never, never so near
Mine to have when the now
And the here disappear and oh

What matters, what matters, what matters, dear, for when
This doesn't happen again
We'll have this moment forever
But never, never again, again
Never, never again, again
