And it's much too wide for you can't get across to the other side.
But they don't know I've got to get there and hold her in my arms
Just a one more time like I did before when she was mine all mine.
Cause I can hear her saying (come to me baby)
I'm going away.
I'm going to stay.
I'm gonna get to you, no matter what I have to do.“

But I'm old enough to say I got a good look at the other side.

But right now I just want to take what I can
Get tonight.While the night is still young,
I want to keep making love to you,
While the night is still young.“
