The day the world stood still
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

You brought me happiness
You stopped the lonely world

With all your tenderness

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
