Song Author Richard Leigh , Bob McDill og Wayland Holyfield Performer: Billy Dean Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Gonna hold who needs holding
[F]Mend what needs [C]mending [F]walk what needs [C]walking
Though it means an [D7]extra [G7]mile   
[C]Pray what needs praying [F]say what needs [C]saying
Cause we're [F]only [C]here for a [G7]little [C]while

Today I sit singing [F]songs and saying [C]amen
Saying [F]goodbye to an [C]old friend who [D7]seemed so [G7]young
Well he [C]spent [F]his [C]life working [F]hard to chase a [C]dollar
Putting [F]off until to[C]morrow the [G7]things he should have [C]done


It made me stop and think
What's the [F]hurry why the [C]running
I don't [F]like what I'm be[C]coming gonna [D7]change my [G7]style
[C]Take [F]my   [C]time and not [F]take it all for [C]granted cause we're
[F]Only [C]here for a [G7]little [C]while


[C]Gonna hold who needs holding
[F]Mend what needs [C]mending [F]walk what needs [C]walking
Though it means an [D7]extra [G7]mile   
[C]Pray what needs praying [F]say what needs [C]saying
Cause we're [F]only [C]here for a [G7]little [C]while

Let me love [F]like I'll never see [C]tomorrow
Treat each [F]day as though it's [C]borrowed
Like it's [D7]precious as a [G7]child
Oohh will you [C]take [F]my   [C]hand
Let us [F]reach out to each [C]other cause we're
[F]Only [C]here for a [G7]little [C]while

[C]Gonna hold who needs holding
[F]Mend what needs [C]mending [F]walk what needs [C]walking
Though it means an [D7]extra [G7]mile   
[C]Pray what needs praying [F]say what needs [C]saying
Cause we're [F]only [C]here for a [G7]little [C]while

[C]Gonna hold who needs holding
[F]Mend what needs [C]mending [F]walk what needs [C]walking
Though it means an [D7]extra [G7]mile   
[C]Pray what needs praying [F]say what needs [C]saying
Cause we're [F]only [C]here for a [G7]little [C]while


Gonna hold who needs holding
Mend what needs mending walk what needs walking
Though it means an extra mile
Pray what needs praying say what needs saying
Cause we're only here for a little while

Today I sit singing songs and saying amen
Saying goodbye to an old friend who seemed so young
Well he spent his life working hard to chase a dollar
Putting off until tomorrow the things he should have done

It made me stop and think
What's the hurry why the running
I don't like what I'm becoming gonna change my style
Take my time and not take it all for granted cause we're
Only here for a little while

Gonna hold who needs holding
Mend what needs mending walk what needs walking
Though it means an extra mile
Pray what needs praying say what needs saying
Cause we're only here for a little while

Let me love like I'll never see tomorrow
Treat each day as though it's borrowed
Like it's precious as a child
Oohh will you take my hand
Let us reach out to each other cause we're
Only here for a little while

Gonna hold who needs holding
Mend what needs mending walk what needs walking
Though it means an extra mile
Pray what needs praying say what needs saying
Cause we're only here for a little while

Gonna hold who needs holding
Mend what needs mending walk what needs walking
Though it means an extra mile
Pray what needs praying say what needs saying
Cause we're only here for a little while
