I remember it was cold outside, staring off into space, hoping to see you there. If I close my eyes I can feel you breathe, and I remember it was cold outside. Streaked faces waiting for spring, it's not much longer now for two hearts filled with hope. May I have this dance? I hope it could last the rest of my life. Are you still afraid? The promises I made, inside these hands, will never be broken. For you these words aren't enough, there should be more, but they're everything I am, they're everything I feel. If I could have this dance, I'd pull you closer, you'd feel me tremble, but I could show you the world. Just take my hand, and this time I wont ever let go.

    General Commentit's just so honest. the guy loves the girl w/ all he has. but she can't just believe his words. she wants more. but words all he can give her because are the best way he knows how to show her. the are filled with all of him.

    wow. lovely song. the honesty in it makes me tear up.

    General Commentits also romantic. "If I could have this dance, I'd pull you closer, you'd feel me tremble, but I could show you the world..."

    General Commenti think that this is one of penfold's most beautifully written songs. "i remember it was cold outside, staring off into space, hoping to see you there. if i close my eyes i can feel you breathe." it's so pure, so sincere...

    General Comment"Just take my hand, and this time I won't ever let go."

    'this time" ? Sounds to me like the reason the words aren't enough for her is because well.. they weren't enough for HIM last time. Weren't enogh to keep him there the first time, so why are they this time?

    Well, we all makes mistakes, eh?
