  • You and I walking slowly
    Hand in hand
    Footprints in the sand
    Watch the wind as it plays
    Throwing shadows across your face
    The sky was so blue
    Your eyes so green
    The air glittering
    So sudden, so swift
    Love came to us
    Just like a gift
    I lived here, you lived far away
    Our lives called us back, no we could not stay
    With a sad sort of smile you took my hand
    Said while we're apart you hope I understand that

    You'll be holding me
    And I'll be holding you
    Through those long nights
    My love will be pulling you through
    When you see the stars
    Pretend they're my arms
    When you feel the air
    That is me kissing you there
    Say you love me
    I will say I love you
    No distance could ever make that untrue
    When I'm far away
    I'll reach through time and space
    When you hear the wind
    You'll hear me saying
    I love you forever

    Fast forward our love story
    I still remember that day
    Her small precious face
    You stared into her eyes
    Hypnotized by her smile
    But your job meant you had to travel
    But we weren't ready for you to go
    You held our daughter with a sad sort of smile
    Said while we're apart I want you to know that

    You'll be holding me
    And I'll be holding you
    Through those long nights
    My love will be pulling you through
    When you see the stars
    Pretend they're my arms
    When you feel the air
    That is me kissing you there
    Say you love me
    I will say I love you
    No distance could ever make that untrue
    When I'm far away
    I'll reach through time and space
    When you hear the wind
    You'll hear me saying
    I love you forever

    God forbid there'll come a day
    When the light in my eyes fades away
    But from your heart I will not go
    No bounds shall my spirit know

    'Cause you'll be holding me
    And I'll be holding you
    Through those long nights
    My love will be pulling you through
    When you see the stars
    Pretend they're my arms
    When you feel the air
    That is me kissing you there
    Say you love me
    And I will say I love you
    No distance could ever make that untrue
    When I'm far away
    I'll reach through time and space
    When you hear the wind
    You'll hear me saying
    I love you forever

    You'll be holding me
    And I'll be holding you
    Through those long nights
    My love will be pulling you through
    When you see the stars
    Pretend they're my arms
    When you feel the air
    That is me kissing you there
    Say you love me
    And I will say I love you
    No distance could ever make that untrue
    When I'm far away
    I'll reach through time and space
    When you hear the wind
    You'll hear me saying
    I love you forever Writer/s: Edoardo Senatra, Jewel Kilcher, Rick Nowels
