Lyrics

It only takes a moment
For your eyes to meet and then
Your heart knows in a moment
You will never be alone again

I held her for an instant
But my arms felt sure and strong
It only takes a moment
To be loved a whole life long

Isn't the world full of wonderful things?
I have lost so many things, my job, my future
Everything that people think is important
But I don't care

'Cause even if I have to dig ditches for the rest of my life
I should be a ditch digger who once had a wonderful day
I missed it, do you mind? I came in late, right after, 'It only'

Takes a moment
But his arms felt sure and strong
It only takes a moment

He held me for an instant
But his arms felt safe and strong
It only takes a moment
To be loved a whole life long

And that is all that love's about
And we'll recall when time runs out
That it only took a moment
To be loved a whole life long
