Just when I believed I couldn't ever want for more
This ever changing world pushes me through another door
I saw you smile
And my mind could not erase the beauty of your face
Just for awhile
Won't you let me shelter you

Hold on to the nights
Hold on to the memories
I wish that I could give you something more
That I could be yours

How do we explain something that took us by surprise
Promises in vain, love that is real but in disguise
What happens now
Do we break another rule
Let our lovers play the fool
I don't know how
To stop feeling this way

Hold on to the nights
Hold on to the memories
I wish that I could give you something more
That I could be yours

Well, I think that I've been true to everybody else but me
And the way I feel about you makes my heart long to be free
Every time I look into your eyes, I'm helplessly aware
That the someone I've been searching for is right there

Hold on to the nights
Hold on to the memories
I wish that I could give you more
Hold on to the nights

    General CommentIn this song, the singer is in love with someone who is married, and the singer himself is married... and yet, they fall in love with eachother. "What happens now??Do they break another rule, and just be lovers?? They seem to have finally found true love in eachother, even though they have their own spouses back home. In their hearts they wish they could be always be together - however, they are still undeceided, and all that they have are "memories" of the nights they have shared in secret.
