IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Just a Little Longer

IRVING BERLIN
"Just a Little Longer"

[1st verse:]
Hold me fast for the time has passed
And we have to say goodbye
In my arms let me hold your charms
While the precious moments fly
How I hate to go, for I love you so
Let me gaze in your eyes and then
Lonely days till we meet again
So

[Refrain:]
Just a little longer
Let me hold you close to my heart

And that little longer
I'll remember while we're apart

Just another moment of bliss
And just another wonderful kiss

My love keeps growing stronger
Lingering longer with you

[2nd verse:]
Soon I know, I must let you go
From my arms where you belong
Leaving me with a memory
Of an interrupted song
It will linger on after you have gone
Hold me fast while we kiss and then
It's the last till we meet again
So
