Arm In Arm
I wouldn’t miss what was,
If I didn’t know how it could be.
And so love remains an enigma,
Wrapped in a mystery.
Take away every memory,
Of love that I ever had,
And my heart will not ache,
And miss it half as bad.
She turned me down. I ran away.
She died when I looked the other way.
Hold her. Hold him. Seize the day!
And far too soon… “it’s” gone…away.
I thought it was “bubble-gum”,
“I want to hold your hand”,
The Beatles said it long ago.
And I want to say, “I love you”,
Before you, too, slip away.
And that day, too,
Will be the longest day.
