Goodbye to beginning,
No more intentions of coming home soon
The thing that I need I can never receive
Cause it's something I've gotta do

Tell me the old story
About the man who had nothing to lose
He gave all he owned
To the poor and alone but
In the end, he still had to choose

Sifting through the pages
Looking for something to give me a name
It's all incomplete
There's no magic receipt
Nothing left that I can exchange

If you want the big picture
Looking around you is never enough
Sometimes the silence
Is all that reminds us
Just what our lives are made of

Moon shining above us
Either a light or a hole in the sky
Let's make believe
While the world is asleep
That the stars spell out "you and I"

Please stay a bit longer
If you can spare just a minute or two
A moment with you is
Something I can hold onto
Enough to carry me through

A moment with you
I'm holding onto
A moment with you
I'm holding onto
A memory of you
I'm holding onto
