What did you think
I would do at this moment?
When you're standing before me
With tears in your eyes

Trying to tell me that you
Have found you another
And you just don't love me no more
Oh, no more

And what did you think
I would say at this moment?
When I'm faced with the knowledge
That you just don't love me

Did you think I would curse you
Or say things to hurt you?
'Cause you just don't love me no more

Did you think I could hate you, no
Or raise my hands to you?
Come on, you know me too well

And how could I hurt you
When darling, I love you?
And you know that I could never hurt you
No, no, no

What did you think
I would give at this moment?
If you just stay
I'd subtract twenty years from my life

Fall down on my knees
I'd kiss the ground that you walk on
If I could just hold you again, whoa

I'd fall down on my knees
Kiss the ground that you walk on, baby
If I could just hold you
Oh, if I could just hold you

I would fall down
Down on my knees, oh God, please
Let me hold you again

Oh, oh whoa
I'm gonna miss you, girl
I'm gonna miss you, girl

I can see the tears in your eyes, baby
What did you think I would do, babe?
Whoa, oh

    Deep song, yet i imagine him singing this to his baby gilr who is now a grown woman who found the man of her life - another love - her future husband. Which is why he wants to go back 20 yrs and hold her, like he did when she was only a baby again.
