Now the night has gone, the night has gone away
Doesn’t seem that long, we hardly had two words to say
Hold me in your arms, for just another day
I promise this one will go slow
We have the right you know, have the right you know
Don’t say the morning’s come, say the morning’s come so soon
Must we end this way, when so much here is hard to lose
Love is everywhere, I know it is
Such moments as this, are too few
It’s all up to you, all up to you
Here I am, the one that you love
Askin’ for another day, understand the one that you love
Loves you in so many ways, tell me we can stay
Tell me we can stay oh please, they are the words to say
The only words I can believe, hold me in your arms
For just another day, I promise this one will go slow
We have the right you know, we have the right you know
