"Where Time Stands Still" as written by and Mary Chapin Carpenter....
Baby, where's that place where time stands still?
I remember like a lover can
But I forget it like a leaver will

It's no place you can get to by yourself
You've got to love someone and they love you
Time will stop for nothing else

And memory plays tricks on us
The more we cling, the less we trust
And the less we trust, the more we hurt
And as time goes on, it just gets worse

So, baby, where's that place where time stood still?
It is under glass inside a frame
Was it over when you had your fill

And here we are with nothing
But this emptiness inside of us
Your smile a fitting, final gesture
Wish I could have loved you better

Baby, where's that place where time stands still?
I remember like a lover can
But I forget it like a leaver will

It's the first time that you held my had
It's the smell and the taste and the fear and the thrill
It's everything I understand
And all the things I never will
