        We walked on the beach beside that old hotel.

Dm7                 Cm/Eb              F
        They're tearing it down now, but it's just as well.

Dm7                 Cm/Eb              F
        I haven't shown you everything a man can do

Dm7                 Cm/Eb              F                  F    F
        so stay with me, baby, I've got plans for you.           This is the

F/A                 Bb                 Eb            Gm7  F
    time       to remember    cuz it will not last forever.      These are
the

F/A                 Bb                 Eb            Gm7  F
   days        to hold on to   cuz we won't altho' we'll want to.  This is
the

Bb                  Fm/Ab              Gm7                G7/F
 time,                     but time is gonna change.         You've given me

Ebm7                Ebm7               Bb        F                       G
 the best of you           and now I need the rest of you.

Dm7                 Cm/Eb              F
       Did you know that before you came into my life

Dm7                 Cm/Eb              F
          it was some kind of miracle that I survived.

Dm7                 Cm/Eb              F
         Someday we will both look back & have to laugh.

Dm7                 Cm/Eb              F                  F    F
        We lived thru a lifetime & the aftermath.                This is the

F/A                 Bb                 Eb            Gm7  F
 time        to remember       cuz it will not las forever.    These are the

F/A                 Bb                 Eb            Gm7  F

the

Bb                  Fm/Ab              Gm7                G7/F
 time             but time is gonna change.                 I know we've got

Ebm7                Ebm7               Bb        F                       G
 to move somehow           but I don't want to lose you now.

Dm                  Am7                Bb                 C
        Sometimes it's so easy to let a day         slip on by

Dm                  Am7                Bb
          without even seeing each other at all.

Dm                  Am7                Bb                 Em7       A7
         But this is the time you'll turn back & so will I

Dm                  Am7                Bb        F
      and those will be the days you can never recall.

      And so we embrace again behind the dunes.

         This beach is cold on winter afternoons.

Dm7                 Cm/Eb              F
        But holding you close is like holding the summer sun.
