The Lyrics 

I hold onto the days 

When we did a lot of wishing 

when nothing but love was in our hearts


I hold onto the days 

Where we did a lot of kissing 

And Nothing could tear us apart 


Maybe it took some time 

to do some reminiscing 

But I think we found some common ground

Ever since you've gone

I find myself wishing that you'd come back around


Could we talk about 

What about me’s unconvincing 

we could turn this all around 

Could we talk about

just what is missing 

So this doesn't run aground 


don’t let this run aground 

don’t let this run aground

don’t you let this run aground 

cuz i know hope can be found
