Time Stood Still



Lyrics

Despair, regret and tenderness
Is what I feel for you
I loved you from the very start
What else could I do

You read my mind, you made me cry
Time stood still
And now I know the reasons why
Time stood still

Maybe you're my next best thing to happen
All the things we might have been

A flame becomes a fading light
That burns inside my heart
And like a castle in the sand
It had to fall apart

You made me laugh, you gave me hope
It's over now
Our happiness went up in smoke
It's over now

Maybe you're my next best thing to happen
All the things we might have been

Maybe you're my next best thing to happen
All the things we might have been

Maybe you're my next best thing to happen
All the things we might have been

Maybe you're my next best thing to happen
All the things we might have been
