I've been holding on
So much longer than I should.
But it's not easy letting go
When deep inside you know
That it used to be so good.

You're the kind of girl
Who's got to make it in this world.
So if that is going to be
Your one priority,
Better walk away from me.

And I just wanted to say
Thank you for the use of your love.
It was good while the dream was young.
Faded now.
I won't stand in your way,
Thank you for the use of your love.
'Cause there's nothing more precious than time.
You take yours,
I'll take mine.

I've been lookin' back,
I don't regret a single day.
But the woman that you were,
I'm still in love with her
And the way it used to be.

So I just wanted to say
Thank you for the use of your love.
It was good while the dream was young.
Faded now.
I won't stand in your way,
Thank you for the use of your love.
'Cause there's nothing more precious than time.
You take yours,
I'll take mine.

You'll always be a part of me.
Time will never change the way I feel.

I just wanted to say
Thank you for the use of your love.
It was good while the dream was young.
Faded now.
I won't stand in your way,
Thank you for the use of your love.
'Cause there's nothing more precious than time.

I just wanted to say
Thank you for the use of your love... (fade)
