Hold me close, don't let me go, oh no 
I, yes I love you and I think that you know 
Do ya know 
With your love light shining 
Every clouds got a silver lining 
So hold me close, don't let me go 

Hold me close, don't let me go, oh no 
You and me, yes our love it will stop the show 
Do you know 
With your love light shining clearly 
It's so good to have-a-ya near me 
So hold me close, don't let me go 

And if that road gets weary, oh I love you 
Waiting here if you need me 
'Cause I love the things that you do 

So hold me close, don't let me go,oh no 
You see I, yes I love ya and I think that you know

And if that road gets tougher, oh I love you 
No I'll let ya suffer 'cause I love the things that you do 
So hold me close, don't let me go oh no 
You and me, yes our love it will grow and grow
