Thank you for this moment
I've gotta say how beautiful you are
Of all the hopes and dreams I could've prayed for
There you are

If I could have one dance forever
I would take you by the hand
Tonight it's you and I together
I'm so glad I'm you're man

And if I lived a thousand years
You know, I never could explain
The way I lost my heart to you that day
But if destiny decided I should look the other way,
Then the world would never know
The greatest story ever told
And did I tell you that I love you tonight?

I don't hear the music
When I'm looking in your eyes
But I feel the rhythm of your body
Close to mine

It's the way we touch that sends me
It's the way we'll always be
Your kiss, your pretty smile you know I'd die for
Oh baby, you're all I need

And if I lived a thousand years
You know, I never could explain
The way I lost my heart to you that day
But if destiny decided I should look the other way,
Then the world would never know
The greatest story ever told
And did I tell you that I love you
Just how much I really need you
Did I tell you that I love you tonight, tonight?

And if I lived a thousand years
You know, I never could explain
The way I lost my heart to you that day
But if destiny decided I should look the other way,
Then the world would never know
The greatest story ever told
And did I tell you that I love you
Just how much I really need you
Did I tell you that I love you tonight?

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. The lyrics are beautiful, Oliver James' voice is beautiful. Especially with this song in What a Girl Wants where he had great chemistry with Amanda Bynes, it makes me want to cry. I love these lyrics.
