What was it you said to me
Back in the days when things looked fine
bout how we would be together
Until we left the earth behind
Oh, its funny how things can change
Cos there was a time I thought Id be the one
Whod leave and start again
But now Id stay forever

Ooh my hopes are as the leaves upon the water
Just sunk in the night
And though I know you couldnt care, you oughtta
Ah, the end of a life
Or maybe when youre older, and youre thinking back
You might recall
Now did I act carefully, did I do right?
Or were we meant to be, all of our lives
In love and harmony, all of our lives?

So now, take my hand
Come, hold me closely
As near as you can
Believing all that we could be
And all that we have been
And all that we are

Everyday seems summertime
The river flow with wine
Ooh when you were here with me
I wish wed stayed that way forever

Oh my hopes are as the leaves upon the water
Just sunk in the night
And though I know you couldnt care, you oughtta
Ah, the end of a life
Or maybe when youre older, and youre thinking back
Well you might recall
Now did I act carefully, did I do right?
Or were we meant to be, all of our lives
In love and harmony, all of our lives?

So now, take my hand
Come, hold me closely
As near as you can
Believing all that we could be
And all that we have been
And all that we are

Oh my hopes were as the leaves upon the water
Ah, sunk in the night
And though I know you couldnt care, you oughtta
Oh, the end of a life
And maybe when youre older, and youre thinking back
Oh, you might recall
Now did I act carefully, did I do right?
Or were we meant to be, all of our lives
In love and harmony, all of our lives?

So now, take my hand
Come, hold me closely
As near as you can
Believing all that we could be
And all that we have been
And all that we are
