(Michael Bolton/Liz Sharpe)

Don't know why I never told you
There was something in your eyes that took my breath away
And every word I meant to say
Now I know I'd give my soul to you
Take you back in time and hold you
Just for one more day, so I wouldn't have to hurt this way
So I beg and plead, I'm on my knees
Gonna show you how long I can wait
I can't keep holding on if you're telling my heart it's too late

Chorus:
Next lifetime our love will be deeper
And I'll hold you sweeter
I won't waste so much time
Next lifetime I'll find you sooner
And I'll kiss you better
I won't lose you next time
Oh I will lay my heart on the line, next lifetime

I don't know what I was thinking
But giving you a part of me wasn't good enough
Never gave you all my love
I can't believe I was such a fool
All I needed was to prove to you I could feel like this
Could have said it all in our last kiss
Oh I beg and plead, I'm on my knees
I could never unmake my mistake
I can keep holding on but if somebody's taking my place

Chorus

Never knew how long the nights could be
Till you slipped right through my hands
How do I make you believe that I deserve a second chance
Take me back to the place where your heart was mine
If I could take you back in time
I will lay my heart on the line (x2)
