Parting

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing Along with Jim Nabors

 

All my life will fall away if you leave me here today.

All I ask is won’t you stay and love me just for one more day?

Love me just for one more day.

 

If you must leave,

Let me remind you of the joy and tears that bind you 

To me still.

You may think you’ll not remember all the treasured hours so tender,

But you will.

Some lonely night, you’ll wake up trying to forget and end up crying,

Crying for me,

For I’ll be stealing through your heart, dear, just as long as we’re apart, dear.

Wait and see.

 

All my life will fall away if you leave me here today.

All I ask is won’t you stay and love me just for one more day?

Love me just for one more day.

 

Forget the dreams we dreamed together, forget the promises of forever,

Let them die.

Forget the good times of the years; you spent them on your souvenirs.

Let them cry.

Still can feel your tender warning as you would touch me in the morning—

So warm, so near.

If you remember only this—while you are gone my love you’ll miss.

I’ll still be here.

 

All my life will fall away if you leave me here today.

All I ask is won’t you stay and love me just for one more day?

Love me just for one more day.
