about

A man is up in space on a dangerous mission and thinks back to his wife home on Earth and the last night they spent together.

lyrics

From way up here, Earth is blue and green
Shrouded in mist, an amazing sight to be seen
It's beautiful, but not as beautiful as you
I had to go, we've all got jobs to do

So hold me tonight
'Cos I may never come home again
Hold me tonight
These memories will have to keep me until then
So hold me tonight
Just hold me and don't let go
Please don't ever let me go

I could have said no, but that's not who I am
I have to help out in any way I can
You understand, and I understand that you will cry
To see you again I know I must not die

So hold me tonight
In the loving warmth of your embrace
Hold me tonight
Is this the last time I'll ever see your face?
Hold me tonight
Just hold me and don't let go
Please don't ever let me go

There are others here, but I'm on my own
They're talking to me but still I feel so alone
Countless stars shining in the night
And we're all hoping everything goes all right

So hold me tonight
A million miles away from the woman I love
Hold me tonight
I am dreaming of you as I float far above
Oh love just hold me tonight
Just hold me and don't let go
Please don't ever let me go

Don't let me go...
Don't let me go...
Don't let me go...
Don't let me go
