Hold me close, for I fear
That someday you will be gone.
How to hold you ever near
Not just until the dawn.

My heart will break if you let go,
I think as I hold you tight.
We still hold on, somehow I know
This feeling you cause is right.

We'll smile together,
Happy and carefree.
Grab hold forever,
Together we'll be.

I can see us now, as the sun sets,
You stayed with me through it all.
We beat the odds, took all the bets,
Battered our way and stood tall.

Now our days draw to a close,
And contentment is all I feel.
For our love blossomed like a rose,
That love, like touch, is real.

We smiled together,
Happy and carefree.
Grabbed hold forever,
Together we'll always be.
