To Have And Not To Hold

Lyrics Print lyrics

To have and not to hold

So hot yet so cold

My heart is in your hand

And yet you never stand

Close enough for me to have my way

 

To love but not to keep

To laugh not to weep

Your eyes they go right through

And yet you never do

Anything to make me want to stay

 

Like a moth

To a flame

Only I

Am to blame

 

Ba ba da ba ba ba, what can I do

Ba ba da ba ba ba, I go straight to you

Ba ba da ba ba ba, I've been told

You're to have not to hold

 

To look but not to see

To kiss but never be

The object of your desire

I'm walking on a wire

And there's no one at all

To break my fall

 

Like a moth

To a flame

Only I

Am to blame

 

Ba ba da ba ba ba, what can I do

Ba ba da ba ba ba, I go straight to you

Ba ba da ba ba ba, I've been told

You're to have not to hold

You're to have not to hold

You're to have

Not to hold

 

Like a moth

To a flame

Only I

Am to blame

 

Ba ba da ba ba ba, what can I do

Ba ba da ba ba ba, I go straight to you

Ba ba da ba ba ba, I've been told

You're to have not to hold

You're to have not to hold

You're to have not to hold

You're to have

Not to hold
