Only Here For A Little While

By 

Billy Dean


(Accapello on first chorus)

I'm 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,

Because we're only here for a little while.


(Verse 1)

D                    G                D                    
Today I sit, singing songs and saying amen,
       G             D               E7        A
saying goodbye to an old friend, who seemed so young,
         D     G   D             G               D
well, he spent his life, working hard to chase a dollar,
        G           D           A                     D
putting off until tomorrow, the things he should have done,


(Verse 2)

D
It made me stop and think,
           G              D
what's the hurry, why the running,
        G               D             E7        A
I don't like what I'm becoming, gonna change my style,
D    G  D             G               D        
take my time, and not take it all for granted, cause we're,
G    D          A      D
Only here for a little while.


(Chorus)

D
Gonna hold who needs holding,
G               D        G               D
mend what needs mending, walk what needs walking,
          D        E7    A
though it means an extra mile,
D                        G              D
pray what needs praying, say what needs saying,
             G    D          A       D
'cause we're only here for a little while.


(Verse 3)...Chord Change

       E               A           E
Let me love, like I'll never see tomorrow,
           A                  E
treat each day as though it's borrowed,
          F#7           B  
like it's precious as a child,
               E    A  E
Oohh, will you take my hand,
       A                 E
let us reach out to each other, 'cause we're,
A    E          B       E
Only here for a little while.


(Chorus)

E
Gonna hold who needs holding,
A               E        A               E
mend what needs mending, walk what needs walking,
          E        F#7   B
though it means an extra mile,
E                        A              E
pray what needs praying, say what needs saying,
             A    E          B       E
'cause we're only here for a little while.


(Chorus again, then fade out)
