If you leave, don't leave now
Please don't take my heart away
Promise me just one more night
Then we'll go our separate ways
With hours left time on our sides
Now it's fading fast
Every second every moment
We've got to--we've gotta make it last

I touch you once I touch you twice
I won't let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd still be friends someday

If you leave I won't cry
I won't waste one single day
But if you leave don't look back
I'll be running the other way
Seven years went under the bridge
Like time was standing still
Heaven knows what happens now
You've got to--you've gotta say you will

I touch you once I touch you twice
I won't let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd meet again

I touch you once I touch you twice
I won't let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd still be friends

I touch you once I touch you twice
I won't let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd meet again someday

If you leave
Oh if you leave
Oh if you leave
Don't look back
Don't look back

    Well I know what that song means to you and I've heard careless whisper for a few years from you but I never wanted to talk about it, sometimes I wish I could leave for awhile and go to bora where its quiet, those words in the song are very meaningful about us about our dance, words weve said to each other etc.

    Some people go threw there whole life staying married to the same person even if there unhappy but I know marriage isn't perfect and it takes work, sometimes I think I was just meant to stay in a father daughter marriage, part of me is afraid to leave and marry someone else because I'm afraid they might be alchoholics, druggies or have been with to many girls and that's not safe, I know your not an alchoholic or druggie etc.

    I believe in marriage and I know you do, I just think we are both married to the wrong people, I don't know if your still married and don't know how you really feel and that's why I never talk about it to you here, certain things like that should be talked about in person between each other.

    No I haven't used up all the love in my heart, I believe in love and I know you know I'm not someone that believes in being with someone that's interested in one night stands, I wouldnt of stayed here if I thought that's what you wanted, I believe a man should court a lady like you have showed me threw the music.
