  • What was it you said to me
    Back in the days when things looked fine
    'Bout how we would be together
    Until we left the earth behind
    Oh, it's funny how things can change
    Cause there was a time I thought I'd be the one
    Who'd leave and start again
    But now I'd stay forever

    Ooh my hopes are as the leaves upon the water
    Just sunk in the night
    And though I know you couldn't care, you oughtta
    Ah, the end of a life
    Or maybe when you're older, and you're thinking back
    You might recall
    Now did I act carefully, did I do right?
    Or were we meant to be, all of our lives
    In love and harmony, all of our lives?

    So now, take my hand
    Come, hold me closely
    As near as you can
    Believing all that we could be
    And all that we have been
    And all that we are

    Everyday seems summertime
    The river flow with wine
    Ooh when you were here with me
    I wish we'd stayed that way forever

    Oh my hopes are as the leaves upon the water
    Just sunk in the night
    And though I know you couldn't care, you oughtta
    Ah, the end of a life
    Or maybe when you're older, and you're thinking back
    Well you might recall
    Now did I act carefully, did I do right?
    Or were we meant to be, all of our lives
    In love and harmony, all of our lives?

    So now, take my hand
    Come, hold me closely
    As near as you can
    Believing all that we could be
    And all that we have been
    And all that we are

    Oh my hopes were as the leaves upon the water
    Ah, sunk in the night
    And though I know you couldn't care, you oughtta
    Oh, the end of a life
    And maybe when you're older, and you're thinking back
    Oh, you might recall
    Now did I act carefully, did I do right?
    Or were we meant to be, all of our lives
    In love and harmony, all of our lives?

    So now, take my hand
    Come, hold me closely
    As near as you can
    Believing all that we could be
    And all that we have been
    And all that we are
