lyrics

I wake to see your golden smile
The feel of a thousand kisses
Oh please stay a while

I reach up to hold your sunlit face
Feels like a handful of silk
Now I’m in your embrace

Oh I hope this feeling lasts
‘Till the oceans turn to glass
And the world around us turns and fades to black

Together we’ll hold back the sun
In this moment forever young
Against the stream of time we’ll run
Baby we’ll hold back the sun

This feeling moves me every single day
I’m captured by your charm
Enchanted by your ways

In the magic of your eyes
I become lost in their spell
So come closer my dear
Because all is well

Oh I hope this feeling lasts
‘Till the oceans turn to glass
And the world around us turns and fades to black

Together we’ll hold back the sun
In this moment forever young
Against the stream of time we’ll run
Baby we’ll hold back the sun

When the sun goes down and the world spins ‘round
When I lay right next to you
I can’t close my eyes even though I try
These perfect moments are few

I fall to sleep’s embrace
In the morning I’ll wake
To that perfect sight of you

Together we’ll hold back the sun
In this moment forever young
Against the stream of time we’ll run
Baby we’ll hold back the sun
In this moment forever young
Against the stream of time we’ll run
Baby we’ll hold back the sun

In this moment forever
