If there ever was an angel
Then surely you must be one
If there ever was a perfect love
When I look at you I see one.

If there's heaven here on earth
Then this must surely be
I want you to be
The last one to touch me.

The last thing I remember
Before I go to sleep
Is the touch of your sweet lips
Softly kissing me.

And so when I awaken
From my eternal sleep
I want you to be
The last one to touch me.

And when it's time to lay me down
For my eternal sleep
Once more let your fingers
Softly touch my cheek.

If I know that you have touched me
Then I can sleep in peace
I want you to be
The last one to touch me.

And when the night is over
And time will be no more
They say that we shall meet again
Upon the golden shore.

And so when I awaken
From my eternal sleep
I want you to be
The last one to touch me.

I want you to be
The first, the last, the only one
To touch me...
