"Once in a lifetime"



Well if you want to leave then Iím not going to stand in your way,
If you want to leave then Iím not going to ask you to stay.
If you want to leave then donít hang around to say why
And (who am I kidding?) Iím not gonna miss you,
It wonít mean a thing, I wonít cry,..
Who am I kidding?
Wonít cry?

I fell for your fire, the heat of your touch.
I fell for the passion that burned me so much.
I fell for your kiss and the sound of your sigh.
I fell for the way that you walk in the night.
I fell for your hair that flies in the wind.
I fell for the soft sweet smell of your skin.
I fell for your eyes that look into my heart.
I fell at your feet and you tore me apart.

I live for your needs and I wont count the cost.
I live for the moment in case it is lost.
I live for your moods and the way that they change.
I live for the days when the world is so strange.
I live for you sleeping so silent, serene.
I live for your visions to wake in your dreams.
I live for your laughter, I live for your charms.
I live when you hold me and die in your arms.

Once in a lifetime an angel might touch you
And you are that angel for me.
I am a mortal imperfect and lifeless,
A moment with you and Iím free.

Well if you want to leave then Iím not going to stand in your way,
If you want to leave then Iím not going to ask you to stay.
If you want to leave then donít hang around to say why
And (who am I kidding?) Iím not gonna miss you,
It wonít mean a thing, I wonít cry,..
Who am I kidding?
Wonít cry?
