  • Hold me close, don't let me go, oh no
    I, yes I love you and I think that you know
    Do ya know
    With your love light shining
    Every clouds got a silver lining
    So hold me close, don't let me go

    Hold me close, don't let me go, oh no
    You and me, yes our love it will stop the show
    Do you know
    With your love light shining clearly
    It's so good to have-a-ya near me
    So hold me close, don't let me go

    And if that road gets weary, oh I love you
    Waiting here if you need me
    'Cause I love the things that you do

    So hold me close, don't let me go,oh no
    You see I, yes I love ya and I think that you know
    Do you know
    With your love light shining
    Every clouds got a silver lining
    So hold me close, don't let me go

    And if that road gets tougher, oh I love you
    No I'll let ya suffer 'cause I love the things that you do
    So hold me close, don't let me go oh no
    You and me, yes our love it will grow and grow
    Do you know
    With your love light shining
    Every cloud has a silver lining
    So hold me close, hold me close, hold me close don't let me go

    Hold me close
    Closer girl
    Hold me close
