It’s like the grains of time,
Like the hourglass of sand.
Watching love go bye now,
And just slipping through my hands.

I can see you drift away,
Right before my eyes.
And I’m reaching out to what we had before.
And writings not in stone,
Let’s save what’s on the line.
But if you close the door, then hey.

Just leave me with a little of myself,
And all the feelings that we fell for,
Love, but love is worth the price of holding on,
‘Cause you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.

We’ve traveled down this road
We’ve got a long, long way to go, yeah.
Don’t turn your back upon me,
‘Til we’ve got something left to show.

And I’m talking at you,
You can’t hear a word I say.
Forget the past cause we still got today.
A kiss can melt the heart and turn it into fire,
But if loves gone away.

Just leave me with a little of myself,
And all the feelings that we fell for,
Love, but love is worth the price of holding on,
‘Cause you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.

Just leave me with a little of myself,
And all the feelings that we fell for,
Love, but love is worth the price of holding on,
‘Cause you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.

Just leave me with a little of myself,
And all the feelings that we fell for,
Love, but love is worth the price of holding on,
‘Cause you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.

And I’m reaching out to what we had before,
But if you close that door,

Just leave me with a little of myself,
And all the feelings that we fell for,
Love, but love is worth the price of holding on,
‘Cause you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.

Just leave me with a little of myself,
And all the feelings that we fell for,
Love, but love is worth the price of holding on,
‘Cause you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.
