  • I know you loved him, a long time ago
    Even now in my arms, you still want him I know
    But darling this time, your memories die
    When you hold me tonight, don't close your eyes

    Don't close your eyes, let it be me
    Don't pretend it's him, in some fantasy
    Darling just once, let yesterday go
    And you'll find more love than you'll ever know
    Just hold me tight, when you love me tonight
    And don't close your eyes

    Maybe I've, been a fool, holding on all this time
    Lying here in your arms, knowing he's in your mind
    But I keep hoping someday, that you'll see the light
    Let it be tonight and don't close your eyes

    Don't close your eyes, let it be me
    Don't pretend it's him, in some fantasy
    Darling just once, let yesterday go
    And you'll find more love than you'll ever know
    Just hold me tight, when you love me tonight
    And don't close your eyes

    Don't close your eyes, let it be me
    Don't pretend it's him, in some fantasy
    Darling just once, let yesterday go
    And you'll find more love than you'll ever know
    Just hold me tight, when you love me tonight
    And don't close your eyes

    Just hold me tight, when you love me tonight
    And don't close your eyes Writer/s: Bob Mcdill
