  • Oh, she was young in her mind
    They're the days, they were old and tired
    Along came a love
    She had yearned for so long, oh, she felt on fire

    She'd do anything for him
    She'd do anything for him

    Oh, he was close as the label in a shirt
    Never left her side
    Oh, he would lace handkerchief in the rain
    If she ever walked by

    He'd do anything for her
    He'd do anything for her

    Hold back and keep slow
    All the light's out in your cold heart now
    Hold back and keep slow
    All the light's out in your cold heart now

    Stuck in a world that would pull them apart
    And it cost in time
    If only they knew up ahead loomed a cloud
    That was as black as night

    She'd do anything for him
    She'd do anything for him

    Oh, they were strong
    They could take on the world and put up a fight
    And even the clouds couldn't stand in the way
    When they held on tight

    He'd do anything for her
    He'd do anything for her

    Hold back and keep slow
    All the light's out in your cold heart now
    Hold back and keep slow
    All the light's out in your cold heart now

    Don't hold your breath too long
    For white diamonds in the snow
    Don't hold your breath too long
    For white diamonds in the snow

    Hold back and keep slow
    All the light's out in your cold heart now
    Hold back and keep slow
    All the light's out in your cold heart now
