Roy Orbison – If Only For Awhile lyrics

For awhile, I can sing
All the world and everything
Is touching you
Knowing you are real
A miracle beside me

For awhile, I can breathe
Life is you and I can
Cling to fantasies
Seeing me with you
Keeps my soul alive now

Tomorrow, if I die
At least I'll know why I live
You're mine
If only for awhile

For awhile, for awhile
You hold my world and you can spin it
For awhile, for awhile
Life is good because you're in it

Tomorrow, if I die
At least I'll know why I live
You're mine, you are mine
If only for awhile
