And if forever never comes than I
And if forever never comes than I
And if forever never comes than I
I'll hold on, and hold on...

I keep listening to my chest
For a beat but there's nothing left
It's been a week since I've seen ya
And I still can't believe it because
I'm dyin' inside alone

And everyday we gotta be apart,
I'm like a baby with a broken heart
But the second that I see you
You will know how much I need you
Cause I'll never be lettin' you go

Now you know that...

[Chorus]
I'm lost without you
And there's nothing I can do
You're the one I can't go without
By holding on to you then I'll be holding on forever
I've got you now and
I'm not letting go of you
Never be together long enough
Because every moment I'm with you
It's like I'm holding on to heaven

And if forever never comes than I,
And if forever never comes than I,
And if forever never comes than I,
I'll hold on, and hold on...

And if I can write a symphony
Baby you would be my melody
And you would slow like a river
Slowly going on forever
Like a feather that's blowin' away

Like every woman needs a fairytail
Like every mothers love that never fails
Like every game that needs a player
And a sinner needs a saviour
I'm the villian you're willing to save

Now you know why...

[Chorus]
I'm lost without you
And there's nothing I can do
You're the one I can't go without
By holding on to you
Then I'd be holding on forever
I've got you now and
I'm not letting go of you
Never be together long enough
Cause every moment I'm with you
It's like I'm holding on to heaven

And I'm willing to wait
Just to see you another day
What I'm waiting for
Will wash this pain away
And it's never too late

And if forever never comes than I...
And if forever never comes than I...
And if forever never comes than I...
I'll hold on, and hold on...

Now you know why...

[Chorus]
I'm lost without you
And there's nothing I can do
You're the one I can't go without
By holding on to you
Then I'd be holding on forever
I've got you now and
I'm not letting go of you
Never be together long enough
Cause every moment I'm with you
It's like I'm holding on to heaven

And if forever never comes than I...
And if forever never comes than I...
And if forever never comes than I...

Cause every moment I'm with you
It's like I'm holding on to heaven

And if forever never comes than I...
And if forever never comes than I...
And if forever never comes than I...

Cause every moment I'm with you
It's like I'm holding on to heaven...

    It has nothing to do with heaven in its literary sense. It is about love,about how much a man misses his loved one,how he cant live witout her.nickelback has done bundles of songs following the same meaning.the tune's good though,the lyrics,as i always feel with nickelback,shud have been a lot better.
