I can't forget the first time that I kissed you
It's the sweetest feeling I have ever known
But every dream they say must have an ending
And you leave the hands you're holding all alone.
Did God mean I could keep you for a lifetime
Or did he mean for just a year or two
If it's meant that I should have to lose you
Then what's these hands you're holding gotta do.
But if you don't want me I won't try to keep you
But there's just the smallest chance you may be wrong
Until you're sure I hope you'll never let go
Of the hands that you've been holding for so long...
