Ronan Keating:

“Forever Ain’t Enough”

I still remember

Locking our fingers

First cold December with you

Our hearts were on fire

Young love desire

Don’t ask me why but I knew

 

And after all these years

I still catch the old butterflies

 

Tonight, holdin’ you close under moonlight

Don’t want this moment to pass by

There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do

One life ain’t long enough here by your side

I see a future in your eyes

The second I saw it I knew

Forever ain’t enough with you

 

Head on my pillow

Tracing your dimples

Life feels so simple with you

Don’t need to rewind

Press pause or stop time

‘Cause it feels like the first time

That you said that you’re mine

It feels like the first time

 

And tonight, holdin’ you close under moonlight

Don’t want this moment to pass by

There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do

One life ain’t long enough here by your side

I see a future in your eyes

The second I saw it I knew

Forever ain’t enough with you

Forever ain’t enough with you

Forever ain’t enough with you

Forever ain’t enough, forever ain’t enough

 

Even through times of tears

You’ll never hear a goodbye

‘Cause after all these years

I still catch the old butterflies

 

Tonight, holdin’ you close under moonlight

Don’t want this moment to pass by

There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do

One life ain’t long enough here by your side

I see a future in your eyes

The second I saw it I knew

Forever ain’t enough with you

Forever ain’t enough with you

Forever ain’t enough with you

Forever ain’t enough, forever ain’t enough
