It's Only For A While
(Dee Shipman / Roger Webb)


How I long to grow old with you! We'll make up for lost time, and we'll live until we're ancient, and we'll tell the world that the world is not what it was, and we had the best of it!............. God bring him back to me....!!

Itís only for a while
And I can wait till then
Iíll close my eyes to see your face
Until youíre here again

I may pretend Iím happy
It wont be true
Life goes on although
I just donít know
What to do 
Without you

Itís lonely for a while
And cold at night alone
And through my tears
I hear your voice say
"Soon I will be home...."

Youíre in my head
Not in my bed
And until you can be
Iíll make believe your smile
And make believing Iíll 
Be warm once more
If only for a while


Hardy, how goes the battle?


Very well my lord. We have fourteen enemy ships in our possession, four more are destroyed. But you must conserve your energy sir.


Hardy, take care of my dear Lady Hamilton. It's Kismet. God bless you............]


God I wish I could be with you out there...!


You always are...]


We had the best of it, didn't we?


Thank God I have done my duty............]


Itís only for a while
Til we can talk and touch
Iím scared inside
But thatís the price
Of loving you so much

A day a year
Till you are here
Safe again beside me

The road is long 
But Iíll 
Walk on another mile
Alone but sure
Itís only for a while

Itís lonely
But itís only for a while.........
