No one move,
No one speak,
Please don't say that it's just me, it's not just me.
And even though I wont forget,
Just don't want this to end just yet, not just yet.

And if I had one chance to freeze time
And stand still and soak in everything,
I'd choose right now.
And if I had one night where sunshine coul break through and show you everything,
I'd choose right now,

If this is it, all we have,
I know I've done all I can,
If this is it.
And we can't stop, and start again
We can't fast forward to the end
This is it.

And if I had one chance to freeze time
And stand still and soak in everything,
I'd choose right now.
And if I had one night where sunshine could break through and show you everything,
I'd choose right now,

Before the fears that I once had start coming back... again.
Oh please come back again... again,
Oh please come back again,
Oh please come back again.

And I'm so scared I might forget,
Just don't want this to end just yet,
Not just yet.

But if I had one chance to freeze time
And stand still and soak in everything,
I'd choose right now.
And if I had one night with sunshine to break through and show you everything,
I'd choose right now,
Before the fears that I once had start coming back... again.

    Newton once said that this song is about being in a perfect performance. Being right in the moment and not wanting that feeling to end. Of course it translates to any similar situation beautifully.

    Effort expended without sufficient return. But he sees a moment that contains many of the things he
    feels are worth holding on to.

    For me it was about a relationship that wasnt meant to be but after reading the comments from the woman who lost her precious son and the woman who lost her unborn baby i cant listen to the son without crying for both of them xx

    For me this is when i discovered when i was pregnant, that feeling of disbelief after many years of trying. Four weeks later, i miscarried but it was that feeling of wonderment, i just wanted to stop time and i couldn't.
    I have seen newton live a number of times and this is about singing live but for others, it is much more.
