One day you came along 
And spoke so tenderly 
You kissed me, oh, so sweet 
And gave your love to me
One moment in my life
I glowed to every thrill

For one day in my life
You brought me happiness 
You stopped the lonely world
With all your tenderness 

I can't get over you
I guess I never will
Time was a precious thing
The day the world stood still 

The day the world stood still 
And you were only mine
I held you close to me
And stopped the hand of time

I can't get over you
I guess I never will
Time was a precious thing
The day the world stood still 
Time was a precious thing
The day the world stood still
