WHO ARE YOU HOLDING NOW?

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  your suitcase hits the ground with a crash
                 but you don't hear.
                 with arms outstretched you bound with a dash
                 with joyful tears.
                 though I'm not there,
                 I can see it clear.

      CHORUS A:  and who are you holding now?
                 long ago you knew.
                 but with ev'ry heartbeat,
                 life begins anew.
                 old friends are all memories.
                 only now is true.
                 so who are you holding?
                 who are you holding?

            II.  I feel you breathing warm on my chest
                 and moving slow.
                 you know my needs without a request.
                 your answers flow.
                 though you're not here,
                 I can see it clear.

      CHORUS B:  and who am I holding now?
                 long ago I knew.
                 but with ev'ry heartbeat,
                 life begins anew.
                 old friends are all memories.
                 only now is true.
                 so who am I holding?
                 who am I holding?

           III.  and now your silhouette fills my door,
                 we meet again.
                 you say you've grown to love me much more
                 than you did then.
                 it's not a dream,
                 no it's not a dream.

                 (repeat chorus A)
