Writers: Leo Sayer & Michael Omartian

Oo, can't you see
The days are growin' by
The things I read about the world outside
Don't seem to matter now you're here tonight
Hold me, love's comin', hold me if you can

The world just keeps on turning
Don't mean a thing to me
Long as I'm with you, babe
There's nothin' that I need
World just keeps on turning
But your lovin' stays the same
Long as I got you, babe
The world can roll away

Oo, can you feel it?
Now we're a million miles away
The world looks oh so small from up here, baby
And that's the way it's gonna stay
Hold on, love's comin'
Hold on if you can

The world just keeps on turning
Don't mean a thing to me
Long as I'm with you, babe
There's nothin' that I need
World just keeps on turning
But your lovin' stays the same
Long as I got you, babe
The world can roll away

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

Oh it's you and me, baby
Lost in our lovin' dreams
No one to tell us what we should or shouldn't do
This time life is more than it seems
Hold on, love's comin
Hold on if you can
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

World just keeps on turning
Don't mean a thing to me
Long as I'm with you, babe
There's nothin' that I need
World just keeps on turning
But your lovin' stays the same
Long as I got you, babe
World can roll away
Pick up the world
Just keeps on turnin'
The world just keeps on turnin'
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
