"Everybody needs a little time away"
I heard her say, "from each other
Even lovers need a holiday, oh yeah
Far away from each other"

Hold me now
It's hard for me to say I'm sorry
I just want you to stay with me, oh

And after all that you've been through
I will make it up to you, I promise you, baby
And after all that's been said and done
You're just a part of me I can't let go

Couldn't stand to be kept away
Not for a day, from your body
(Baby, I can't live without you, not even day)
Wouldn't wanna be swept away (away)
Far away from the one that I love

Hold me now
It's hard for me to say, I'm sorry
I just want you to know (you to know)
Hold me now
I really want to tell you, I'm sorry
I could never let you go

And after all that we've been through
I will make it up to you, I promise you
And after all that's been said and done
You're just a part of me I can't let go, I can't let go

    General CommentThis song gives me chills. A rare example of a cover that more than does justice to the original. I wish my ex would tell me this...

    General Commentomisoul...this song's my first...2nd, like about third love...=p || Everytime I hear this song playing--anywhere--I freak. "You're just a part of me I can't let go"-true for me, since I always have trouble letting go of something/someone--who doesn't. This song's incredible, esp. how they sang it with Peter Cetera...

    General CommentWell, I guess any guy that has been in love can appriciate this one. Sometimes we love someone so much they can mean everything to you and still you can so easy hurt them. Sometimes a little time away is what is needed but for all those times that it's not and things can be worked out this is definitaly the song to put on and try to make up.

    General CommentMost of the song is self explanatory.
    "it's hard to say I'm sorry"
    i guess, sometimes saying sorry doesn't cut it, and it just serves to be more honest, real and truthful to the person you love who you might've hurt by not throwing hollow sorries at them.
