For A Minute There Lyrics

by Garth Brooks

We were walking 'long the ocean, together hand in hand
When I stopped to write 'I love you' in the sand
And when I looked up you were standing ten miles out at sea
And in a sweat, I woke up from that crazy dream

As I reached to hold you in the morning light
It was your pillow, I clung to so tight

For a minute there, I thought it was you
For a minute there my prayers had finally come true
For a minute there, I began again to live
What I wouldn't give for just a minute there

Five O'clock on Friday, sitting at a light
When this angel walked right by me on my right
And the cars all started honking as my feet hit the ground
And though I chased and called, you never turned around

Oh the walk, the hair, the perfume were the same
How I wished she would've answered to your name

For a minute there, I thought it was you
For a minute there my prayers had finally come true
For a minute there, I began again to live
What I wouldn't give for just a minute there

Tonight the stars in heaven are bright as they could be
And I swear on of them is winking down at me

For a minute there, I thought it was you
For a minute there my prayers had finally come true
For a minute there, I began again to live
What I wouldn't give for just a minute there

What I wouldn't give
How I'd love to live for just a minute there
