You can't hold on to sunlight when shadows are falling
You can't hold on to summer when winter is calling
You can't hold on to moonlight you'd be cheating the dawn
And you can't hold on to love when it's over and gone
You can't pick up a rosebud then keep it from dying
You can't tell me you love me if you did you'd be lying
You can't hold on to my heart by leading me on
And you can't hold on to love when it's over and gone

You can't count all the raindrops in one April shower
You can't count on my heartaches in one lonely hour
You can't love me the right way by doing me wrong
And you can't hold on to love when it's over and gone
