Richard Marx – Hold On To The Nights lyrics

Just when I believed I couldn't ever want for more
This ever changing world pushes me through another door
I saw you smile, and my mind could not erase the beauty of your face
Just for awhile won't you let me shelter you

Hold on to the nights
Hold on to the memories
I wish I could give you something more and I could be yours.

How do we explain something that took us by surprise
Promises in vain, love that is real but in disguise
What happens now,
Do we break another rule let our lovers play the fool
I don't know how, to stop feeling this way

Hold on to the nights
Hold on to the memories
If I could only give you more.

Well, I think that I've been true to everybody else but me
And the way I feel about you makes my heart long to be free
Everytime I look into your eyes I'm helplessly aware
That the someone I've been searching for is right there

Hold on to the nights
Hold on to the memories
I wish I could give you more
Hold onto the nights.

    We met at the wrong time. We loved at the wrong time. We couldn't be together so we just moved on. Time passed. Lives were lived. Losses occurred and by some miracle we came back together. It was everything we had ever dreamed. We knew each other's souls. I was so happy. So were you. We had finally gotten it right. Then the man I knew disappeared. You are no more. You talk, you talk, you stab me again and again. I wanted to die. But I held on to the memories. Now I know the truth. You are never coming back. And I can't give you more. And you won't give me more.
