Again, this couldn't happen again
This is that once in a lifetime
This is the thrill divine

What's more, this never happened before
Though I have prayed for a lifetime
That such as you would suddenly be mine


Mine to hold as I'm holding you now, and yet never so near;
Mine to have when the now and the here disappear.
What matters, dear, for

When this doesn't happen again,
We'll have this moment forever,
But never, never again.
