The hands you're holding now if you remember
Are the very hands that gave you your first rose
They're reaching out for one last dying ember
In the ashes of a love that lost its glow

If you don't want me I won't try to keep you
But there's just the smallest chance you may be wrong
Until you're sure I hope you'll never let go
Of the hands that you've been holding for so long

Did God mean I could keep you for a lifetime
Or did he mean for just a year or two
And if it's meant that I should have to lose you
Then what's these hands you're holding gonna do

I can't forgive the first time that I kissed you
It's the sweetest feeling I had ever known
But every dream they say must have had an ending
And you leave the hands you're holding all alone
But if you don't want me...
