With lounging heart I can forgive this haunted mind
where you still live
Can’t sleep tonight, when there’s no sound, still wait for
you to be around
You were the ears I could confide
Always you stood by my side
You were the spark that set my world on fire
You were the time of my life, oh yeah
And all our tender moments they won’t go away
You were the time of my life, oh yeah
Will never forget the night when you slipped away
