Hold On To The Nights

  • Just when I believed I couldn't ever want for more
    This ever changing world pushes me through another door
    I saw you smile
    And my mind could not erase the beauty of your face
    Just for awhile
    Won't you let me shelter you

    Hold on to the nights
    Hold on to the memories
    I wish that I could give you something more
    That I could be yours

    How do we explain something that took us by surprise
    Promises in vain, love that is real but in disguise
    What happens now
    Do we break another rule
    Let our lovers play the fool
    I don't know how
    To stop feeling this way

    Hold on to the nights
    Hold on to the memories
    I wish that I could give you something more
    That I could be yours

    Well, I think that I've been true to everybody else but me
    And the way I feel about you makes my heart long to be free
    Every time I look into your eyes, I'm helplessly aware
    That the someone I've been searching for is right there

    Hold on to the nights
    Hold on to the memories
    I wish that I could give you more
    Hold on to the nights Writer/s: RICHARD MARX
