I'll Hold You Close
(Until You Fall Asleep)

1.
Life can get you down, drive your dreams into the ground
  And make you feel that you will never try again
  When no one is there for you, showing that they care for you
  To help you climb that hill that seems so steep
  I'll Hold You Close Until You Fall Asleep
 
2.
Friends can break your heart, tear your fragile world apart
  And make you feel that you're alone without a prayer
  When your friends have left you blue and you need somebody who
  Will wipe away your tears each time you weep
  I'll Hold You Close Until You Fall Asleep
 
bridge Some kind words, a gentle touch, these simple things can mean so much
  Like a candle in the dark to light your way
  To help you heal your soul, turn two halves into a whole
  And turn that long and lonely night back into day
 
3.
When years have drifted on, and the children grown and gone
  And you feel that life is empty and too short
  Still I will be there for you, showing that I care for you
  Living that one vow I swore I'd keep
  I'll Hold You Close Until You Fall Asleep

J.J.. wrote a new melody, made a few changes to the first two verses, and wote a new third verse.

 

"I was inspired by the title to a kid's book listed in an ad in the local paper. I changed the title to I'll Hold You Close (Until You Fall Asleep). I wrote it while watching the end of 'Titanic,' so the melody I had was influenced by classical music. And, my third verse was about breaking up and didn't fit the song. I asked J.J. for help. He took the song to a higher level." — San
