"One Moment More" as written by and Melinda Leigh Aka Mindy Smith Smith....
Hold me
Even though I know you're leaving
And show me
All the reasons you would stay
It's just enough to feel your breath on mine
To warm my soul and ease my mind
You've go to hold me and show me love

Give me
Just one part of you to cling to
And keep me
Everywhere you are
It's just enough to steal my heart and run
And fade out with the fooling sun

Oh, please don't go
Let me have you just one moment more
Oh, all I need
All I want is just one moment more
You've got to hold me and keep me

Tell me that someday you'll be returning
And maybe
Maybe I'll believe
It's just enough to see a shooting star
To know you're never really far
It's just enough to see a shooting star
To know you're never really gone

Oh, please don't go
Let me have you just one moment more
Oh, all I need
All I want is just one moment more

Oh, please don't go
Let me have you just one moment more
Oh, all I need
All I want is just one moment more
You've got to hold me and maybe I'll believe

So hold me
Even though I know you're leaving

    General CommentThis song is dedicated to her mother who died of cancer, I can easily imagine Mindy Smith writing this song during her mother is dying on her bed. It has touched me so deeply and the way MS sings it is so moving. The lyrics are simple but her words are so deep and so sincere. I got tears in my eyes the first time I listened it. Plus MS is a talented singer and her voice is an amazing grace.

    General CommentJust reading the lyrics chokes me up a bit. You can apply this song to so many tragic losses in life- a relationship or death. Makes you think to not take things for granted and cherish each day.

    General CommentI love songs that are so direct and simple, yet can still be so open to different interpretations in different life circumstances. A lover leaving or a mother dying, the song can help anyone going through the pain.

    Absloutely beautifully written and performed.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song... to me this song is about someone Very close to her that she's knows is dying soon because of being sick... this song is her trying to deal... She's pleading for her friend to just hold on... don't leave her... "you've gotta hold me and maybe ill believe" wanting to be assured that everything is going to be ok... i could be completely wrong but this is what it means to me...

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful. I like to think of myself as an emotionally stable person, but as soon as I heard it, I busted into tears. My boyfriend is far away from me right now. I couldn't write down my own feeling better than this song says them. Mindy Smith has a beautiful voice.

    General CommentI only heard this song like a year or so ago on the season finale of the 3rd season of 'Smallville'. I bought the DVD set the other day and actually PAYED attention to it and its gorgeous. She has SUCH a pretty voice and it holds SO much emotion. Although its a direct song its VERY emotional. I love the cyclical nature of it...
