For all we know
We may never meet again
Before we go
Make this moment live again

We won't say goodbye
Until the last minute
I'll hold out my hand
And my heart will be in it

For all we know
This may only be a dream
We come and we go
Like the ripples

Like the ripples
In a stream
So baby love me
Love me tonight

Was made for song
Oh but tomorrow but tomorrow
May never never come

For all we know
Yes tomorrow
May never never come
For all we know
