  • Remember the first time I told you, I love you
    It was raining hard and you never heard
    You sneezed and I had to say it over
    I said, "I love you I said", you didn't say a word

    Just held you hands to my shining eyes
    And I watched as the rain ran through your fingers
    Held your hands to my shining eyes and smiled as you kissed me
    "If you die", you said, "So do I", you said

    And it starts the day you make the sign
    Tell me I'm forever yours and you're forever mine, forever mine
    "If you die", you said, "So do I", you said
    And it starts the day you cross that line

    Swear, I will always be yours and you'll always be mine
    You'll always be mine, always be mine
    Remember the last time I told you, I love you
    It was warm and safe in our perfect world

    You yawned and I had to say it over
    I said, "I love you I said", you didn't say a word
    Just held your hands to your shining eyes
    And I watched as the tears ran through your fingers

    Held your hands to your shining eyes and cried
    "If you die", you said, "So do I", you said
    But it ends the day you see how it is
    There is no always forever, just this, just this

    "If you die", you said, "So do I", you said
    But it ends the day you understand

    There is no if, just and
    There is no if
    There is no if, just and
    There is no if Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
