  • Today this could be, the greatest day of our lives
    Before it all ends, before we run out of time
    Stay close to me
    Stay close to me
    Watch the world come alive tonight
    Stay close to me

    Tonight this could be the greatest night of our lives
    Let's make a new start
    The future is ours to find
    Can you see it, can you see it in my eyes
    Can you feel it now, can you hold it in your arms tonight
    Hold on
    Hold on
    Hold on
    Hold on
    Hold on (tonight)
    Hold on
    Hold on

    Oh stay close to me (hold on)
    Stay close to me
    Watch the world come alive tonight
    Stay close me

    Oh, hold your head high (hold on)
    Arms open wide
    Yea the world starts to come alive when you stay close it me

    Today this could be the greatest day of our lives
    Today this could be the greatest day of our lives

    Oh and the world comes alive
    And the world comes alive
    And the world comes alive
    Oh oh oh
    Stay close to me (and the world comes alive) hold on
    Stay close to me (and the world comes alive)
    Watch the world come alive tonight
    Stay close to me (hold on)
    Oh (stay close to me) and the world comes alive
    (Stay close to me) and the world
    Watch the world come alive tonight
    (Stay close to me) oh oh oh oh Writer/s: Mark Anthony Owen, Gary Barlow, Howard Paul Donald, Jason Thomas Orange
